Monday mornings SUCK.
Seriously. I sooooo didn't want to get out of bed this morning.

Days 'til Season Kickoff: 68

For all of you that think that us recruiting in Memphis is going to lead to bad things: you better go ahead and get over it. There's some athletes here this year and Saban's gonna snag a few.

Some former players chime in about how good Saban's regime will be at Alabama. Antonio Langham is among them.

Kevin Steele is the perfect fit for Alabama. Follow his story here.

Cadillac and Freddie - what a matchup. Both of them were working a football camp and both had lots of stories. Freddie Kitchens told about how Coach Saban gave him his first opportunity to coach Division I-A college football at LSU.

For those that didn't already know, SportSouth will be airing a special on Nick Saban called "In My Own Words: Nick Saban" on July 14th at 9:30pm, so set your dvrs.

Courtney Upshaw confirms that he is still an Alabama commitment. "I knew Alabama was where I always wanted to go."

The Mississippi Press lets everyone know that it's not just the athletes that make the SEC the best's also the coaches.


#2: Alabama 34 Tennessee 14 Oct. 26, 2002 in Knoxville, TN

Gerald Dixon's fumble return for a touchdown just a few minutes into the game pretty much setup a whippin'. Tennessee was without Kelley Washington, but even still, we manhandled them in the trenches on both sides of the line.

This game finally broke the 7 game losing streak to Tennessee. Talk about a painful streak. We forced 6 turnovers that night. Everytime they would get a little momentum, we would strike back with a huge play.

Nobody could get much going on offense, but we made WAY fewer mistakes than they did, which ultimately led to the final score being so one sided. This could have been my proudest moment over the past 5 years, because I had some Tennessee fans that liked to throw things in my face. I kept this one for a loooong while. :-)

Comments: Antonio Langham is expecting 7 wins? Wow! What “low-balling.” A Bama coach would have to try to lose, to lose 6 games in 2007 and after.

If that is what Bama fans were expecting, it would have been real easy to have saved about $3 million and kept Shula, because he would have had a good chance with a little luck to have gone 10-3 in 2007.

The standard by which Saban should be judged in 2007 is a 10-3 season. If he achieves that, then it will be good enough in a year of a coaching transition and he will have almost earned his money.

But all the “low-balling” is just to make a disappointing actual 8-5 or 9-4 season sound good or an actual 10-3 season sound great.
