Days 'til Season Kickoff: 110 Days 'til Jermain Taylor vs Corey Spinks: 5
Yes, I am a boxing fan. And yes, my favorite fighter is Jermaine "Bad Intentions" Taylor, so I'm going to countdown this week until the fight. De La Hoya vs Mayweather was stupid. Just a buildup for a rematch. Another $120 Million payday.
Anyway, no football news again today...
Baseball won 2 of 3 from Arkansas this weekend in a series that they NEEDED pretty badly. We're currently 7th in the standings, which puts us in the SEC tournament...ironically against Arkansas again.

THE MIKE DUBOSE ERA
#12: Alabama 38 BYU 31Sept. 5th, 1998 in Tuscaloosa, AL
This was the first rededication of Bryant Denny Stadium with the opening of the new upper deck. It was a new experience, seeing that many more people. That expanded the attendance numbers to 83,123.
This was a breakout game for Shaun. He broke the school record by rushing for 5 touchdowns in a game - the previous record was 4, which was tied by several people. Shaun tied Gary Hollingsworth's 1989 record for most touchdowns, although Gary was a QB.
Anyway, we should've beaten this team worse than we did, but it was a good nonconference victory in a slew of bad ones. I guess it's better to barely beat a nonconference team than to lose (i.e. Central Florida, Northern Illinois, Southern Miss).
