TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- There was a reason AJ McCarron developed into one of the best quarterbacks in his rookie season under center, and it wasn’t because he took his vitamins.

There was a reason Trent Richardson made it all the way to the Heisman Trophy ceremony, and it wasn’t because of the shoes.

There was a reason Alabama converted on nearly half of its third down plays, and it wasn’t because the Tide had a high-flying offense.
