I'll be in Tuscaloosa tomorrow. Thank God. We'll get there around 11. Again, e-mail me if you wanna hang out for a lil while.
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 29
RollCrimsonTide.com will be hosting today's CRIMSON & WHITE ROUNDTABLE. The question this week is: Discuss the two BAMA rivalries that stand out the most to you, and discuss BAMA's special teams and what we should expect to see from them in the future.
All 105 players reported yesterday. Tyrone Prothro is among the 4 players that were given a medical hardship scholarship, which means he can't play this season. Kerry Murphy and Michael Ricks both were declared academically ineligible, so the safeties' jobs are safe for this season. Darren Mustin has some kind of injury and may not be able to open camp. I look for him to be a starter on opening day, as long as he gets over this injury. All practices, other than fan day, are closed to the public. Practice on Saturday is at 2:30, and I'll be down there. :-)
If you wanna read up on Coach Saban's first verbal commitment for the '08 class, read up on Michael Williams here.
The medical scholarship basically means that Tyrone Prothro's football career is over. Read more about it here, here, and here.
Johnathan Lowe, who I thought was going to be an outstanding kick returner this year alongside Javier Arenas, will not be on the roster due to academic troubles. Kids really piss me off when they don't make the grades to play football. Get off your ass and go to the library. Jeez.
