Basketball talk getting bigger...
We'll start out talking about Josh Cooper's article in the Decatur Daily regarding how University of Alabama faculty feels about bringing in Coach Saban for $4M per year. The interviews are very split on the matter, but I would be willing to bet that around 65% or 70% of the faculty are ecstatic about the hiring. Either way, it is a very interesting read.

It's always nice to read something from someone that you KNOW has no clue about Alabama or anything to do with football in this state (ahem, L.C. Johnson of the Montgomery Advertiser).

Andrew Bone, over at, has an unofficial visit list for this weekend. He tells about each of the players, including five-star defensive tackle John Brown, from Lakeland (FL), four-star receiver Brandon Gibson from Mobile-UMS-Wright (AL), U.S. Army All-American quarterback Nick Fanuzzi, from San Antonio-Churchill (TX), three-star receiver Marquis Maze, from Tarrant (AL), three-star safety Elliott McGaskin, from Mobile-B.C. Rain (AL), three-star cornerback Sherod Murdock, from Tampa-Middleton (FL), and two-star offensive lineman Jared Cooper, from Brewton-W.S. Neal (AL).

Cecil Hurt, as usual, provides a great analysis of what is happening to the Crimson Tide basketball team, and tells how Gottfried will go about handling it.

The Fayetteville, AR newspaper - Razorback Central - discusses how easily Alabama could turn things around this year in basketball. It talks about the youth of the team and how much more they will grow once they get closer to the tournament. Ronald Steele's health, of course, is an issue, so we'll have to figure out where to go from there.
