I miss the weekend...
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 102

Yeah...good times all around in Tuscaloosa. The softball team, after taking a loss on Friday night, bounced back Saturday to beat both Florida State and California, then beat Tennessee Tech twice on Sunday to advance to the Super Regionals of the NCAA Tournament. They'll face Washington this weekend.

The Alabama baseball team beat Mississippi State 2-out-of-3 this weekend to secure a spot in the SEC Tournament. The record is tied with Florida, but we'll be the 7th seed thanks to us losing the series to them earlier in the season. The team thinks a 4th straight series win over a ranked opponent is enough to get into the NCAA tournament.

Dennis Dodd from Sportsline.com has good things to say about Alabama. Kevin Steele is listed as a top 5 recruiter, and Nick Saban is described with this: "He's back, and he's about to outsmart the world. Again. At LSU, his defenses showed three, four or five different looks before the snap. He made the quarterback guess who was coming after him. This will be a great year to watch Saban at his best. Alabama won't win the conference but will make waves. Make sure to watch 'Bama's swing games against Florida State, Tennessee, LSU and Auburn."

Terrell Manning, 4-star weakside linebacker from North Carolina, plans to visit Alabama this summer.

Drew Cummings, tight end from Huntington, WV, is walking on at Alabama next season. He turned down a similar offer from West Virginia to come to Bama.

Rolando McClain has set some lofty goals for his freshman season - Freshmen All-SEC and Freshmen All-America. Shouldn't be too hard, I guess...haha. The Decatur Daily gets an interview about how his summer is going, etc.



THE MIKE DUBOSE ERA


#8: Alabama 22 LSU 16 Nov. 7th, 1998 in Baton Rouge, LA

Talk about damn lucky. This game should have been over early. Alabama wasn't exactly a good football team, and played very poorly in this game. Shaun was held in check for most of the day, but made some key first down runs and held on to the football.

With about 4 minutes left in the game, Bama was down 16-7 when LSU gave them the football back. Zow threw a 21 yard strike to Shaun Alexander for a touchdown. After that, Bama recovered the onside kick and Zow threw a deep pass to the right corner of the endzone. Quincy Jackson caught the pass, which was tipped by an LSU defender for the 2nd time in the game, for the go ahead touchdown. LSU got the ball back with under a minute left and couldn't do anything with it.

So, Alabama survived in Death Valley for at least another two years. DuBose was luuuucky in this game. I guess it evens out for stuff like the La Tech hail mary and the missed PAT against Michigan, right?
