YEAH....all about it, my friends. All about it. Only 2 days left until the weekend. The weekend I will spend doing nothing but hanging out with friends and passing out flyers for our next show - Friday, July 13th at the New Daisy Theatre down on Beale Street. :-)

Days 'til Season Kickoff: 73

Auburn defensive coordinator, Will Muschamp, and new Alabama defensive coordinator, Kevin Steele, will each be speaking at different events in the Shoals this week. Does it seem humerous to anyone else that our new coach basically jump-started the careers of two big time coordinators at opposing schools this season (Jimbo at FSU and Muschamp at Auburn)?

Tommy Hicks at the Press-Register gives you a rundown of the 5 most popular preseason magazines.

More news about Ramzee Robinson being "Mr. Irrelevant." I feel good for him...he's getting a lot of special treatment out there. Haha.

Alabama's camp for high school players started this past Sunday and has given Coach Saban and his staff a chance to look at some new possible players. Read more about it here.


#5: UCLA 20 Alabama 17 Sept. 1st, 2001 in Tuscaloosa, AL

This was the dawning of a new era at Alabama. Everyone was excited about bringing in Coach Fran. The possibilities were endless as to where he could take this football team that, just a year early, was a preseason national title contender that flopped to a 3-8 finish.

The Gameday crew was in town (and yes, to this day we're still winless when they come to the Capstone). Coach Fran was all over ESPN. This game was payback for UCLA putting the first knife in the heart of our national title expectations a year earlier. It was the awakening of the beast that is Alabama football.

And then, when the game was over, we were 0-1.

The game started out great, with Tyler Watts hitting Antonio Carter for a 78 yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. After a 2nd quarter field goal, we led 10-0. Then UCLA figured us out. They scored a touchdown midway through the 2nd, and then only a few minutes into the 3rd for a 14-10 lead. They then kicked two field goals and led 20-10 by the 4th quarter.

Andrew Zow came in for Tyler Watts late in the game and completed a 71 yard touchdown to Freddie Milons with only a couple of minutes left. We converted the onside kick and were only one broken tackle from winning the game on a hook and ladder on the last play. Game over. 20-17 Bruins win. My heart was broken.

Yes, that's Motley Crue.
