Badabing...Badaboom.
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 74

You know it's a big deal when Sports Illustrated is talking about your coach's number of public appearances in his contract.

Overall, the Tuscaloosa News has Alabama as the #7 greatest college football program, tied with Florida. That's a drop from #6 last year.

Finebaum lets us know that Saban isn't worth the $4 Million he's getting per year - he's worth twice that.


THE DENNIS FRANCHIONE ERA


#6: Alabama 14 Iowa St 13 Dec. 27th, 2001 in Shreveport, LA

The Independence Bowl. This was actually my first bowl game experience. I remember walking to the stadium and bumping into Tiger fan Tim Brandeaux (that's actually Brando, if I'm not mistaken). He's a cool dude, for those that don't know. Anyway, this game honestly looked like we had no idea what the hell we were doing for most of the game.

The game was, for the most part, a snooze fest. It wasn't that the defenses were great or anything like that. It was more the fact that neither offense could really click at all. Alabama's best drive of the game was their final drive, when they finally got rolling, both rushing and passing. Andrew Zow hit Terry Jones, Jr for a 27-yard touchdown pass. The extra point finally gave us the lead with 4:44 left in the game.

Iowa State made big play after big play on their last drive. Seneca Wallace (yes, the same guy from the NFL) led them down the field fairly easily. They converted a 2nd-and-25 and a 4th-and-7 on the drive to keep it going. Finally, they attempted the game winning 47 yard field goal that wide right by just inches. It was Tony Yelk's 3rd miss of the game.

It kept us on a 4 game winning streak and built towards the next year. So I guess a win is a win. :-)
