Good lord. This is just awesome. Today is Friday and finally my car is FIXED. No transmission issues. Just bad speed sensors. Haha.

So, the weekend is almost upon us. Let's go ahead and knock this part out.

Days 'til spring practice: 36
Days 'til Selection Sunday: 23
Today's RPI: 31
Basketball Predictions: 6 seed
Bracket Watch: NO SEED - NIT

Out of 26 brackets, we are considered IN THE FIELD in 20 of them. We average out to be an 11 seed. I don't remember us being an 11 seed. Even when we went 17-12 for a few years, we were still a 10 seed. I'll take an 11. George Mason was an 11 last year. Ha.

Anyway, enough about basketball - back to everything else now.

Coach Saban finished out his staff by hiring Curt Cignetti - the Tight Ends and QBs coach and Recruiting Coordinator for North Carolina State. Pretty good article about him here. Seems like a good hire to me.

Larry Templeton was forced out as AD at Mississippi State on Wednesday, at the request of the school president. He will stay on through 2008. It appears that Sly's days could be numbered out there. Sad to see.

It appears that Miss St will open the 2007 season with another lopsided loss to LSU. They will be playing the Tigers in Starkville on the Thursday night to open the season. Not exactly how I would want to start the year.

Auburn's schedule looks to be pretty tough, I guess. Opener against Kansas St on Sept. 1st. Then South Florida comes in, and they're not exactly a push over (just ask our boy Rod up in WV). They've also got New Mexico State coming in. They'll throw for a billion yards on the Tigers and get beat by 70. Normal Hal Mumme style.

Scarbinsky thinks that Joe Dean Jr. is a natural for the Mississippi State AD job. He is currently the AD for Birmingham Southern, and moonlights as a color analyst for Lincoln Financial SEC basketball games.

Speaking of basketball, Cecil Hurt wrote a great article about using the Florida game as a building block rather than looking at it as an accomplishment. The team has turned a we just need to turn one more. We can win these next two and they'll all but guarantee a slot in the tournament.

According to the Arkansas Times, either today or tomorrow, Frank Broyles will retire as athletic director at Arkansas. This coming from pressure from many boosters and higher ups within the university. This goes on top of everything else, including "e-mail gate" as reported by the Northwest Arkansas Times. You can also check out Wally Hall's latest article about the whole mess. Fayetteville has lots of bad rumblings going on right now. It'll be interesting to see how this football season pans out.
