Ahh yes. The weekend....
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 43

The weekly Crimson & White Roundtable will soon be up over at Hack's spot on the web - Journalism is for Rockstars.

If you didn't already know (to my knowledge, the University hasn't announced it), the Homecoming concert this year, to be held on Friday, Oct 5th, will be Daughtry over at Coleman Coliseum. I don't remember a homecoming concert at Coleman before, so I might have to make an early trip down to try and see the show. I kinda dig that guy's music.

Dennis Dodd proves his idiocy by taking pot-shots at Alabama and proclaiming that the Big East will have 3 national title contenders in any given year. Riiiiight. And LSU's moving to Conference-USA.

It's finally going to happen. After the fight back in May at FedExForum, everyone's been ready to see Kelly Pavlik fight Jermaine Taylor for the middleweight championship. We get our wishes on Sept. 29th in Atlantic City at the Boardwalk. I am SOOO ready for this one. Should be the best fight this year, hands down.

If you wanna read up on all the Michael Vick crap, check it out here. It is absolutely unbelievable.

I guess he's close enough now that we can start talking about it. Barry Bonds hit 752 and 753 last night against the Cubs, which means he's 2 home runs away, and 3 away from breaking Hammerin' Hank's record. To me, it's a little disheartening. I'm gonna have to explain to the next generation why Barry Bonds is the home run king, which is ridiculous in its own right. But, alas, so be it. I don't really care enough about baseball to try and explain an asterisk to anyone. Haha.

If you've ever been watching the NBA and thought that the refs were out to get your team, you may have been right. The New York Post ran a story about a one-year-probe into an NBA referee that bet on games he was officiating. Talk about an odd story.

Simeon Castille was the only Alabama player to make the SEC coaches' first-team, which is weird to me because Vanderbilt had 3 and Ole Miss had 2. Are we really that low on talent? I guess we'll find out this year. In all, Alabama had 6 on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd teams.

John Frierson, over at the Times Daily, lets us know that the "stupid season" never really ends. He writes about all of the arrests over college football in the past few weeks, and how Coach Saban will deal with discipline in this case.

It appears that Tennessee is already courting their next head coach. Apparently John Gruden was recently in East Tennessee, said he loves it there, he loves Coach Majors, and he hates Nick Saban. Here's hoping we can get him to join the college ranks...I'd love to whip Chucky's ass year in and year out.


#13: Alabama 13 Ole Miss 10 Oct. 15th, 2005 in Oxford, MS

This had all the makings of a huge upset. Head coach's first year, a home game against a top 10 team, an 11am kickoff, a team coming off an emotional high, and the top 10 team getting the SI cover (curse) the week before.

And somehow, we found a way to pull it out. It wasn't easy though.

Michael Spurlock, the right handed Brent Schaeffer, looked like an All-SEC quarterback against us that day. He started out early by throwing a touchdown pass late in the 1st quarter to take a 7-0 lead. We answered midway through the 2nd with a field goal to make it 7-3. We took that score into the half.

Then, on the first drive of the 2nd half, Kenneth Darby ran 48 yards into the endzone to take a 10-7 lead. Both defenses were pretty stingy for the rest of the afternoon. Alabama gave up a 24 yard field goal that made it 10-10 early in the 4th after keeping the Rebels out of the endzone.

After the ball swapped hands a few times, we got the ball back on our own 24 yard line with 2:39 to play. Brodie made some great throws, Darby made some great runs, and we called a timeout with 3 seconds left to play on the Ole Miss 14 yard line. Christiansen booted the 31 yarder with no problem and we sneaked out of Oxford with a hard-fought victory.
