Tonight's the night. Don't forget - if you live around Memphis, come out to the Daisy. If you wanna show up late, that's cool. We don't play until 10:30pm. :-)
Alright, everyone remember I'll be on the Chris Vernon show this afternoon at 5:40pm CST on 730 ESPN in Memphis. If you're out of the listening area, check out the website (previously linked) and listen to the live stream. Should be good times.
The Sand Mountain Reporter details what each episode of "Aaron's Football Saturdays in the South" will be about. Won't find much about the Tide until week 3.
So, by now everyone has heard about the sentence handed down to Oklahoma's football team after it has been researched and found that former Sooner players had been taking money from boosters. They were forced to forfeit all their victories from 2005 (whoopty-do) and give up two scholarships. They're on probation 'til 2010. Seem like a slap on the wrist? Look at this versus the Alabama case. Of course, Dawg Sports thinks it's just another case of the big-bad NCAA wimping out on imposing sanctions on a big-time college football market that isn't Alabama.
Coach Saban announced that Bobby Gaston, the retired SEC supervisor of officials, will be a consultant with the Tide this year, helping Alabama prepare from a rules standpoint.
It was also announced that the University of Alabama will help Jamar Taylor find a new school closer to his family in Florida. It appears that he will probably be headed to South Florida, where he can team up with former 'Bama signee Mike Ford (who failed to qualify academically).
Coach addressed high school coaches from around the area at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville yesterday. To read more about his speech, click here.
#18: Auburn 21 Alabama 13Nov. 20, 2004 in Tuscaloosa, AL
We Bama fans like to think that our inspired play is the reason that Auburn didn't get to play against USC for the National Title that year. We were a 6-4 team that year, with our fate already pretty much sealed for either Shreveport or Nashville, so our only inspiration was beating the Barn and keeping them out of the title game.
Brian Bostick kicked two field goals in the first half, and our defense stood firm, giving us a 6-0 lead at the break. But then came the 2nd half.
Jason Campbell showed why he would be a first round NFL draft pick and drove Auburn down the field three times in the 2nd half to take a 21-6 lead.
We did make it somewhat interesting though. Spencer Pennington threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to DJ Hall with 1:32 left. Sadly, Auburn recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.
Again, we like to believe that last score with just over a minute left is what caused them to not jump Oklahoma in the polls. :-)

Good luck on the show this afternoon. # posted by Alchemist : 10:55 AM
I appreciate it brotha. We've got some pretty important people that will be there. Hope they all like us as much as I do. :-) Haha. # posted by Memphis Tider : 11:12 AM
