It may be the offseason in football, but the Alabama Crimson Tide continues to have a championship mindset across the board in college sports. This week is filled with a lot of action in other sports that deserve your support. Here are a few stories for the week.
Alabama Men’s Golf Leads Puerto Rico Classic
The Alabama Men’s Golf team is tied with Oklahoma going into the final round of the Puerto Rico Classic today. Ranked third nationally, Men’s Golf begins the season where it left off – in title contention. Alabama Women’s Golf won the 2013 Lady Puerto Rico Classic last week with a runaway 13 stroke victory.

Gymnastics No. 4 After Win over Auburn
Alabama Gymnastics moved up to No. 4 in the nation after posting their 106th consecutive victory over cross-state rival Auburn. The team travels to Fayetteville on Friday to face No. 18 Arkansas and returns home to Coleman Coliseum next week for a match against UCLA — the team they passed in the rankings last week. Alabama is looking to repeat as national champions and currently leads the nation in attendance. Follow Gymnastics on Twitter @BamaGymnastics.
Tide Hoops Balances on NCAA Bubble
Alabama (17-8) clings to NCAA tournament hopes as Mississippi State visits Coleman Coliseum on Wednesday. The Tide struggled this season with poor rebounding and poor shooting and, according to bracket experts, may be headed to the NIT due to four bad losses and overall strength of schedule. Alabama has done very well in the NIT in recent years, but Coach Grant continues to build the team with the goal of success in the “big dance.” Follow Tide hoops on Twitter @AlabamaHoops.
