No updates tomorrow...
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 79

We won't be updating tomorrow, due to me being out on the road. Again, if you haven't heard my band, check us out. We're called Prosevere.


I believe we now know why Jimmy Barnes transferred: he's a pansy. His dad came out and said Jimmy didn't leave because he was homesick or disgruntled over playing time, etc. It's because of "the way he's treating kids down there." What a joke. Read more about it here.

Coach Saban's contract has been completed and is now in the hands of the Board of Trustees to be approved. Read about it here, here, here, and here.

Ramzee Robinson is the guest of honor in Newport Beach, CA for "Irrelevant Week." Sounds like a bunch of crap, but it's still pretty cool.

Alabama are 75-1 odds to win the National Championship. Georgia is 35-1.

The feel good story of the day comes from The University of West Alabama.


THE DENNIS FRANCHIONE ERA


#8: South Carolina 37 Alabama 36 Sept. 29, 2001 in Columbia, SC

This was a ridiculous ass game. We dominated this team all up and down the field. We held the ball nearly 40 minutes to their 20 minutes, out gained them in every category, had more first downs, etc, but when it mattered the most, our secondary gave them the football game.

We were up 36-24 with 9 minutes to go, but they stormed down the field and scored with 6 minutes left to make it 36-30 (they missed the PAT). Tyler Watts couldn't do anything with the football and we were forced to punt it back with a little over 3 minutes left. Petty, their QB led them down the field on a 4 play, 56 yard touchdown drive, and this time they hit the extra point.

We couldn't do anything after that.

That season was all about the defense giving up big leads at the end of the game. It was incredibly painful.
 

Comments: I checked out the website for the band. You guys have a great sound. Any chance you might play in Tuscaloosa during football season?

# posted by Blogger Memphis Tider : 11:33 AM   With Bama at 75-1 to be national champ, it was almost unanimous.

But I really don't think they are likely to accomplish the task in 2007, maybe in 2008 or even as late as 2009.

But really, some are maybe a little bit too optimistic, but I would not say odd. Hey, we can always hope and who knows. :)
