Get your Vandy tix....
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 31

Just finished buying my Vanderbilt tickets. Talk about shitty seats. Oh well...I think it'll be alright. We're in section M (endzone), row 41 (only goes up to 44), seats 28-29 (I think we're on the end of the aisle). If you haven't gotten yours yet, go to the Vanderbilt Ticket Office and reserve them today. It's been a while since we've been to Nashville, and when you can see the Tide for only $25 a ticket...well...there ya go.

Alabama's keeping a close eye on Jarrod Jefferson, who looks like he'll fit the jack position for us. He's a 6'3" 245 lbs defensive lineman from Escambia, but he'll end up playing linebacker in Saban's twisted 3-4 defense.

If you wanna read an ever-so-short bio about Courtney Upshaw, check this out.

If you wanna know more about Fan Day, check this junt out. I'll be there for most of the day Saturday, if anybody wants to hang out. And yes, I know Fan Day is on Sunday...I'm not going to Fan Day.

The Clanton Advertiser narrows down who can win the SEC West and who can't. He tallies off reasons why Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State can't, and then says that the only thing that can hold LSU back is their idiot coach. Cheers to the Hat!

If you want leadership, here ya go. Antoine Caldwell, Simeon Castille, and John Parker Wilson appear to be the clear cut leaders of this football team, and Coach Saban wants everyone to know it.

Mal Moore spoke in Montgomery recently, and, of course, his main topic (and most of the questions he received) was Coach Saban and his new contract. He has also gone to work on ideas for stadium expansion as well.

Tom Dienhart finally got to sit down and chat with Coach Saban inside his freakin awesome office. "It's expansive, bigger than a Manhattan apartment. It's decked out with a plush couch, ornate chairs and wood tables. A mini trophy symbolic of his 2003 national title with LSU sits on an end table as you enter the room. And it's a room with a view -- two, in fact -- one to the weight room and the other to practice fields. Saban reaches for a remote and presses the button. His office door closes. Yeah, pretty sweet, huh?" He finally comes to the conclusion that Coach Saban is intense...and that's all there is to him. No real mystery or anything. The man is a football coach.



THE MIKE SHULA ERA


#6: Alabama 13 Texas Tech 10 Jan 2nd, 2006 at the Cotton Bowl, Dallas, TX

After over a month of having to dwell on the Auburn and LSU losses, we finally got back to playing football. After all, this was Shula's best year, so we wanted to start off '06 with a win.

The game kicked off some-kinda-early. I think at either 10 or 10:30, which is pretty freakin ridiculous.

Anyway, the game kicked off, and nothing happened for a little bit, but early on we saw fireworks. Brodie Croyle hit Keith Brown for a 76 yard touchdown with less than 4 minutes gone from the 1st quarter. I thought we were gonna run away with this game...but that was the only touchdown we got the whole game.

Texas Tech drove on us later in the quarter and settled for a 34 yard field goal, making it 7-3. That was the score leading into the 2nd quarter. Both defenses were pretty stout through the 2nd and most of the 3rd quarter.

Midway through the 3rd, we had a nice little drive that ended with a 31 yard Jamie Christiansen field goal, giving us a 10-3 lead going into the 4th quarter.

Finally, after our defense dominated all day, Texas Tech found out how to pick our secondary apart. They drove down the field and capped off the drive with a 12 yard touchdown to Jarrett Hicks that tied it at 10-10 with 2:56 left in the game.

That's when Brodie's magic started working again. We started at our own 14 yard line with 2 time outs. Croyle hit Matt Miller for 17 yards on a 3rd-and-6. Then he hit Keith Brown for a 23 yarder to get them into field goal range.

Christiansen told everyone on the team that he'd make up for his 39 yard miss, and his 38 yarder that was blocked.

And man, that kick was ugly. It may have gotten 15 feet in the air at its highest point, but it still went through. It was like a 45-yard punch with a 3 iron or something.

 

Comments: I ordered my Vandy ticket with my student season tickets. They charged up something like $45! We better have some damn good seats if you got yours for $25.

At least I know there's people I can tailgate with now though. :D
