Trent Richardson Graces Sports Illustrated Cover, Again (via UA Media Relations)
It marks the 11th Sports Illustrated Cover for Alabama during Nick Saban’s Tenure

Junior running back Trent Richardson, for the second time in his Alabama career, will be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated when the weekly magazine hits newsstands Thursday.

Richardson also appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated last September for the cover story centering around breakout players and answered questions from week one.

This marks the 11th time Alabama has been the center of an SI cover since head coach Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa in January of 2007. The Crimson Tide was also featured on the cover in the wake of the April 27 tornados that ripped through Tuscaloosa.

Some of the more memorable Alabama SI covers during the Saban era include Glen Coffee’s cover after the 2008 Clemson game, Mark Ingram’s “Pride of the Tide” cover on his Heisman candidacy, the cover story on Alabama’s win over Florida in the 2009 SEC Championship featuring Colin Peek and Ingram’s second appearance on the cover after the 2009 BCS National Championship victory over Texas in the Rose Bowl.

    Alabama has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated more than any other team or person. Thats more than the Yankees or the Cowboys. Are we Americas favorite team?

      We were telling this one about lil’ Bowden 20 years ago. You need to get your head out of your ass long enough to know what’s going on around you.

    LMAO@ same ol’ Roberta. Several NCAA agents have already explained the ruling and found no violations took place at T-Town Menswear. Only moron Barner bloggers are still clinging to it.

    This helluva RB DESERVES the cover of SI — also deserves the cover of multiple magazines —

    If he stays healthy into late November — ass-kickings will ensue — he can’t take every run snap — lacy will have to be the power back while Richardson remains the finesse runner —

    FEAR THE RESULTS!

    ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!
