I'm tired. Poker night was long. I lost my money. Argh.
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 81
Chris Walsh had a nice little interview with Mal Moore. In Chris's words, Mal looks like "the cat who ate the canary."
Alabama named Jeff Allen, from Central Florida, as head football athletic trainer on Monday. Rodney Brown, who formerly held the position, was moved to director of rehabilitation services. Sounds good to me. I'm going to guess that Lance had something to do with Jeff coming onboard.
THE DENNIS FRANCHIONE ERA
#9: Oklahoma 37 Alabama 27Sept. 7th, 2002 in Norman, OK
This game was insanely exciting. Momentum swung like a pendulum in this game. From Alabama opening the game with an onside kick to the very last few seconds where Tyler Watts fumbled and gave them a 10 point lead.
We opened up with a 45 yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead. And that was about the only good thing that happened in the first half. We were down 23-3 at the break, thanks to two insanely long touchdown passes by Nate Hybl, who came in after we broke Jason White.
2nd Half we took control and actually came back to lead 27-23 in the 4th quarter. Oklahoma hit two shovel passes for ridiculous gains (thanks to our line overpersuing) on their last drive and finally stuffed it into the endzone with 2 minutes left in the game to take a 30-27 lead.
We began to drive towards the end of the game, but Tyler Watts, looking at a wide open receiver, reared back to throw a pass and let the ball fly out of his hand backwards. It was picked up by a lineman and returned 45 yards for the game-clinching touchdown.
Talk about heartbreak. But that game did show that we had a damn good defensive line (held OK to -23 yards rushing), and set us up to have a really good year.

The cat who ate the canary, or the cat who's a bad tipper with an even worse attitude. I work at a local restaurant and have waited on him twice--he's always in a pissed-off mood and tips low. # posted by Steven S. : 1:06 PM
Haha. Sorry bro. Normally people in that position are shitty tippers with bad attitudes.
