We're touching on a little bit of everything today...
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 65
Baseball coach, Jim Wells, announced his un-retirement yesterday. I dunno, but this doesn't really have the same "feel-good" story type-of-feeling that Billy Donovan going back to Florida had. He quit, and then decided he didn't wanna quit. But oh well. He's a helluva coach, so it's good to have him back.
Mark Gottfried is close to finishing up the '07-'08 basketball schedule - one that appears to be as good as any we've had in the past. We will have a 1-and-1 with Texas A&M and Clemson over the next couple of years, along with games against Georgetown, George Washington, Southern Miss, and Belmont. We will be playing in a tournament, probably over Thanksgiving weekend, in Las Vegas, which will include Purdue and Iowa State.
The week couldn't possibly be complete without us mentioning a Scarbinsky article. He lets us know just how seriously the NCAA takes contact with recruits during a "no-contact" period.
It appears Jermareo Davidson really should have gone into the draft last year. He is currently projected, over at nbadraft.net, as not being selected at all. The draft starts at 7:00pm CST tonight, so make sure you watch in the 2nd round and see if anybody takes a chance on our boy.
THE MIKE SHULA ERA
#29: Alabama 37 South Carolina 14Sept. 17, 2005 in Columbia, SC
Steve Spurrier just hasn't done well against any of Alabama's worst coaches. DuBose went 2-1 against him, and Shula was 1-0. That just doesn't make sense to me.
If you had told me before this game that we would have destroyed a Steve Spurrier coached team, I would have laughed in your face.
The most famous play from this game actually came during the opening drive. We had driven down the field, and had the ball on the SC 15 yard line when Brodie took off running through a gaping hole in the middle of the secondary. He dove for the endzone, giving us a 7-0 lead, and earning him the nickname "Vanilla Vick." I still laugh about that.
Other than that, we had Keith Brown's 46 yard touchdown reception for a touchdown, with Prothro's killer block on the play. Darby ran wherever he wanted to. He racked up 145 yards on the ground. Alabama, as a team, had 338 rushing yards. It was a beating on the line.
Not to mention that our defense only gave up 256 yards the whole game. And most of that was passing yards after the game was well in hand.

pretty sure shula ans SOS only tilted once. So mikey boy would actually be batting 1.000 against him. # posted by kevin : 11:19 AM
Holy crap. You're right. I'm officially an idiot. I was thinking of the '04 disaster, but that was in Holtz's last year, not Spurrier's first. Thanks for correcting me! # posted by Memphis Tider : 4:57 PM
