I'll be drinking a little bit tonight to celebrate a couple of things....
1) Alabama is OFFICIALLY off probation. Chris Walsh wrote a good article in the Tuscaloosa News about everything that happened leading up to now. 2) Alabama FINALLY won an SEC road game, thanks to Super Jermareo. 31 points and 7 rebounds...and didn't play most of the game on the perimeter. Is is possible that Coach Gottfried is actually.... coaching? Anyway, yesterday was a big storm of controversy about Coach Saban and his comments about "coonasses," etc. He issued a statement saying he didn't mean to offend anyone, and he didn't mean for that statement to be made public. "Randy Cormier, an LSU fan from Breaux Bridge, La., said Saban offended him when he left LSU for a job with the Dolphins following the 2004 season but not with his recent comments. " We're called coonasses," Cormier said, "but most people call us Cajuns now. I didn't take offense to what Nick Saban said. It didn't offend me or any other coonasses. That's what we are." Auburn appears to be headed for another weak BCS conference opener against Kansas St. It'll be televised on ESPN. Next year's basketball schedule is already in the works. There is talk of a double header at the BJCC featuring Alabama vs. Georgetown and Auburn vs. West Virginia. Again, ESPN will be covering it. Looks good to me.
