Days 'til the A-Day game: 22 Days 'til Season Kickoff: 155
Got to check out On a Dead Machine last night here in Memphis. Really good hard rock band - you should all check them out. Also, you can check out my band as well - Prosevere. I'm the singer. If you live in Memphis, we're playing next Saturday, April 7th at the Complex. :-) Shameless self-promotion. Gotta love it.
Anyway, I made it through another work week. Thank God. It's been ridiculous. But you guys don't wanna hear about that. Let's get right into the sports talk.
The Gadsden Times has a story discussing the position changes being made on defense. Talking to Coach Saban, you wouldn't know that Ezekial Knight and Bobby Greenwood are both playing outside linebacker now. I suppose they'll both be used the same way Jason Taylor was used in Miami last year.
Heralded Offensive line recruit, Michael Brewster, has already scheduled his five visits. He's leaning towards Florida or Ohio State, but has an official visit scheduled at Alabama on September 22nd. He is "really interested to see what (new head coach) Nick Saban does at Alabama," Brewster said. "They have great tradition and I'd like to see them get back on top."
We picked up a commitment from Ivan Matchett, a blistering running back from Mobile. Good pickup.
In some basketball news, be sure and read more about Ronald Steele's surgery. What was originally thought to be tendonitus was actually Steele's femur bone digging into a bruise on the top of his knee. Ewwwww.
And, as if you don't know what they are already, here's the official schedule for A-Day activities on Saturday, April 21st.
11:30am: Gates open at Bryant Denny Stadium 12:15pm: Walk of Fame at Denny Chimes with Coach Kines, Juwan Simpson, and Le'Ron McClain 1:05pm: Kickoff for A-Day Game
Now, here's my schedule:
10:00am: Fire up my grill in my parking spot next to the Ferguson Center 11:15am: Finish eating and hanging out, clean up our area 11:30am: Walk by the Quad to see what's going on, heading to the stadium 12:00pm: Get into the stadium and wander around looking for the best seat
Yup. There ya go.
And thanks to our boys over at Dawgsports - we all knew this but now it's official. Auburn students are the dumbest people on the planet. This was confirmed by the fact that one of the swimmers gave a cop a fake ID after being caught relieving himself in an Athens parking garage and smelling like alcohol. Here's the kicker. He's 22 years old.
