Alabama receiver Marquis Maze was named an SEC co-special teams player of the week Monday morning.

Maze had six punt returns for 125 yards in a 23-10 win against Ole Miss. He also caught three passes for 42 yards.

"I think the return team did a nice job and we had some space out there for him," Alabama coach Nick Saban said Saturday night. "He's quicker and more elusive and that can turn into a good weapon for us down the road."

Also honored was Tide defensive back Mark Barron, who was named for other outstanding performances. Barron finished with seven tackles, an interception a tackle for loss and a quarterback hurry.

Maze shared the honor with Kentucky kicker Ryan Tydlacka, who averaged 41.5 yards on six punts with three inside the 20 yard line in a 31-28 win against South Carolina.

I have not posted in awhile but I must say, Cam N. is a good college football player. True au best games are at home this year which is an advantage but hey they are undefeated. Much to my utter dislike towards au, Alabama really has made me mad this year! One loss is okay and the SEC this year is down right competitive, BUT ALABAMA should be dominating!!!!! I am not impressed with the defense and I do not know what happened to the rushing attack. I agree with what Nick Saban said,... ALABAMA needs to STEP UP!!!! I love BAMA football and dislike anything with au on it, BUT Man that Cam N. is good! I am glad the BCS voters have not granted Boise State or TCU number 1 in the country! They do not deserve playing for a National Championship in my opinion!! LSU or au will fall this week! Oregon may run the table but I believe Oklahoma will lose a game. I hope au gets beat this weekend and ALABAMA finally finds its 2009 National Championship Swagger again! ALL Bama needs to do is take it one game at a time! au will fall if not ALABAMA must beat everybody on the schedule and annihilate au in Tuscaloosa on Nov. 26! ROLL TIDEE

Oh kelly...Cupcakes FINALLY caught up to the Bama fantasy - 7 (harris), 7(Coaches), 12 (bcs comp) = 8. As the human polls finally take on a semblance of reality, Bama drops out of the top 10... The computer does NOT like CUPCAKES...point finally proved....see ya bammer......lmao...The fantasy in TTown for the last 1.5 years has hereby ended...AU now rightfully back on top in the BCS...just sayin.

Congratulations. Alabama needs all the effort it can get and those performances were definitely needed.

Hate to admit, but AU has got it going on with their offense. The Iron Bowl is building up to be one for the ages. We as Bama fans should feel very fortunate that game is in Tuscaloosa this year. Bama did this same thing last year. Mid season slump thing. However, we did start improving after the bye week last year. At least until the Iron Bowl and then we got caught looking ahead where it almost cost us. I don't think we'll be looking past them this year.

We should be better after the bye week. But there will be no looking ahead this year. You lose your out.

Congratz to Maze and Barron. They are outstanding players. API has been very lucky so far with its schedule. Cam is a good athlete, but eventually defenses will learn how to neutralize him. We have seen what happens when a team is built around one player.

I think Maze has been one of the bright spots on this otherwise bland offense, starring wind and bag at running backs. All those nicknames and praise plus a tired OL has rendered them useless as teets on a boar hog.

Maze named SEC co-special teams POW
================================
Amazing what you learn on AL.com. I've been a football fan for nearly 60 years and I never knew that Special Teams took prisoners :-)

In any case, congrats to Marquis Maze and Mark Barron. Well deserved guys !!!

Just so you know - getiderorgia is a rebus and not a very sophisticated one at that. However, since it appears to be beyond your intellect, you are welcome to keep telling me about the Dawgs. Wish they were doing better. I actually kinda like 'em, when they aren't playing Bama.

DYER: Just try to beat LSU this week and run your mouth when you actually DO win a championship of some kind, ok? How long has that been? 2004? Yeah, that's relevant.
