...it's all I've got to my name. But that's cool. I only lost a little bit at poker last night, so I'm feeling better about myself this morning.
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 67
Prospects seem to really enjoy Coach Saban's summer camps so far. Read about it here.
Class attendance and academic appointments are of the utmost importance in the SEC - and if the athletes don't feel that way, their playing time and their wallets will soon feel the effects. UGA has started fining their athletes $10 everytime they miss a class or appointment. The concept looks like it will begin to spread, because it's working at Georgia.
#1: Alabama 31 Auburn 7Nov. 17, 2001 in Auburn, AL
This was the last win we've had over Auburn, and it was freakin AWESOME. Auburn was ranked in the top 25 and we were 4-5 coming into the game. Tyler Watts was "expected" to start, and Auburn geared up for our option game.
And then we threw Andrew Zow at them.
Talk about a big day. Zow was 22/29 for 221 yards. Santonio Beard ran the ball 20 times for 199 yards (yes, that's 10 yards per carry). Ahmad Gallow rushed 14 times for 127 yards. We were able to do anything and everything we wanted against them.
Santonio Beard's 47 yard run in the first minute of the 3rd quarter pretty much let Alabama fans know that today was the day that we would finally have something good happen to the program, after a year and a half of horrible news (with DuBose's last year, firing, the NCAA stuff, etc).
This was also the day that we went before the NCAA infractions committee in Indianapolis, IN. So I guess there's bad with every good, right?
