I can't stand it anymore....
I hate waking up so early in the mornings. It's killing me. Oh well. We've got the bean bag toss tourney again tonight at Buffalo's in Southaven. I'm gonna win a trip to las vegas. Haha.

For those that are just getting to read this, the internet here at the office has been down since about 10 this morning. Sorry for the delay.

Oh yeah, and I thought you guys might find this funny. I heard from a radio personality here in Memphis that one of his buddies down at Alabama told him that there was a meeting with all the big wigs at the University one night last week. By big wigs, I mean Dr. Witt, Mal, and a lot of the members of the Board of Trustees. Coach Saban was the last person to walk into the meeting and he said "alright guys, you've got 20 minutes, so let's go." Now THAT is what I want out of my football coach. Haha.

Days 'til Season Kickoff: 17

Coach Saban absolutely lit into the media yesterday after practice regarding the idea of a depth chart. He was pissed and you can tell.

The defense has stepped it up the past 2 days after a pitiful showing in Saturday's scrimmage.

Greg McElroy grew up a big fan of Major Applewhite. Pretty cool being in that kinda situation, right? Coming to a school, and then, during the coaching change, your new position coach and coordinator is your idol when you were growing up.

Mike McCoy has been getting some good reps and is really showing out in practice. He appears to be the real deal. We'll see what happens when he gets into game time. Can't say he's not working his ass off, though.

John Parker Wilson is on the Manning Award list, which is an award for the best quarterback in the country, but is the only one that takes into account the players' performance in their bowl game.

The temperature just continues to rise, but that's fine by the players and the coaches. Everyone is really standing tall right now.

Andre Smith has lost some weight. That's cool.

Coach Saban doesn't want us to not have high expectations - he just wants them to be realistic. Check out more here.

Dawg Sports has taken notice to Coach Saban's recruiting and seems to be quite thrilled that we're killing the Shug Jordan School of Tractor Repair and Sociolojical Resurch in instate recruiting.

Comments: Well I doubt that Coach Saban was mad about the news media pushing to find out about a non existent depth chart, but maybe he was really a little perturbed that they might be trying to get the players to comment on it and thereby having to evaluate their fellow players.

By game time, I am sure there will be an informal depth chart of sorts ( at least one deep),
unless Coach Saban is planning to line up with 33 players or so on Bama's side of the ball.
