What is a Neuropsychologist?

A neuropsychologist is a clinical psychologist who specializes in evaluating how the brain is working through a combination of behavioral observations and performance on cognitive tasks.  The goal is to identify strengths and areas of deficit to aide in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders such as ADD, learning disabilities, sensory processing disorders, and other neurological conditions that impact one’s ability to live up to their full potential.

Few things are as thrilling as being in BDS on an Alabama game day. But let’s face it, a lot of us don’t get season tickets, and we’re super lucky if we score tickets to one or two Bama games all season long. And these days, many of us who are lucky enough to live and work in this wonderful Druid City host friends who love coming to visit on big game weekends – whether they have tickets or not. Sure, you can host your own home tailgating party (or crash someone else’s, preferably on or around The Quad) – but what if you want to get out and watch the game? 

There are a lot of great places to watch Alabama games in Tuscaloosa and have a great experience among like-minded fans. With football season in full swing now (can we get a “Roll Tide”?!), I thought this might be the perfect time to put together this handy dandy list, so we all can have plans in place.

The University of Alabama football team's fall camp is down to a short polish-up session set for Thursday, and then it's officially time for the No. 1 Crimson Tide to take the field for the first time on Saturday as it opens the 2016 season against Southern Cal at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Offensive strategy. Defensive formations. Special teams’ breakdowns. We could talk for hours about game plans, pass coverage, containment, spread offenses, coaching philosophy, out of conference scheduling, playoffs, and home field advantages.

But what fun is that? That’s what every football analyst does. 

No sir. Not this column. This is the important stuff. This is where we get into the nitty-gritty of what it’s all about.

The college football magazines have all been read, the various polls and watch lists have all been announced and a long, dry summer of waiting for the sport to return is finally, mercifully, over.  

Most importantly for Nick Saban's University of Alabama football team, a fall camp which Saban, the 10th-year Crimson Tide head coach, has called a very productive one is now complete, and game time has arrived for the defending Southeastern Conference champions and the reigning College Football Playoff national champs.
