Wooo Hooo...
I'm leaving work early today and driving the 2.5 hours it takes to get to Little Rock to see my friends in Sevendust. Wooo Hooo. Today's going to be a very good day. But first...the numbers.

Days 'til Selection Sunday: 9
Days 'til Spring Practice: 22
Today's RPI: 38

Tennessee's RPI has jumped up to #8 in the latest update. Imagine if we could beat Mississippi State on the road, then beat Tennessee (if they beat LSU) in the tourney, then get to play Florida again. It would do WONDERS for the RPI numbers and give us a legitimate shot at the tourney.

In some other news, Shaud Williams signed a 2 year contract extension with the Buffalo Bills. Good for Shaud. He was here through some rough times.

Nick Saban has offered a scholarship to a kicker. That's right. Corey Smith, from Inwood-Musselman (WV), is a top kicker in the '08 class and Alabama has offered him a scholarship. I guess some people DO understand how important special teams can be. (cough cough, Arkansas)

If you're looking for a team that's even more careless with the basketball, and bad at making decisions, look no further than the women's basketball team, who committed 42 turnovers in a loss to Ole Miss last night in the first round of the SEC tourney. 42? Seriously? Jeez.

Willie Carl Martin, the head coach at Benjamin Russell High School, has resigned after six years there. He is rumored to have accepted a position as an off-field assistant on Saban's new staff at Alabama. Interesting. The rumor is still unconfirmed.

Paul Gattis has a great article about Sabanspeak.

The Capstone Report is all about Mr. Perrin, aka "The Head Coonass," going after Finebaum for his repeated use of the word "coonass" on his radio show. He has threatened a formal complaint to the FCC if Paul doesn't stop. Jeez, some people are just ridiculous.

Jared Zabransky will be the cover boy for EA Sports' NCAA Footall 2008. It also tells how much the school makes in royalties off the game, and discusses how three filmmakers are working on a film / documentary about the 2006 undefeated season, which could also pay BSU royalties. has posted this year's football ticket information. Kinda insane, if you ask me. $40 - Western Carolina, Louisiana-Monroe games. $45 - Houston (Homecoming). Then $55 each ticket for all SEC games. Now that I'm thinking about it, I guess that would be about right because we've got Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and LSU all coming to BDS this year. Those are all HUGE games. Unlike last year with Ole Miss, Vandy, Mississippi State, etc. Oh well.
