Only one more day....
...'Til the weekend. Me and some buddies went and played in a bean bag toss tournament yesterday. We made it to the 2nd round, but got stomped. I need to start playing that game more. It was intense.

Days 'til Season Kickoff: 23

Yesterday was the first 2-a-days session. The heat, once again, was a major factor, even though they practiced in morning and evening sessions. The guys are doing well through everything though.

The Birmingham News talks about how much Jimmy Johns likes to hit people, so his move to fullback is warranted. I say, if he likes to hit people, PUT HIM AT LINEBACKER. He's a stud, he's quick, and he'd KILL opponents. Either way, he's getting used to FB, and has stated that "whatever will help the team, that's what I'm about."

Justin Woodall, who I feel will be a star safety, has been given the OK to play baseball next spring. He'll be a pitcher.

Also, Josh Chapman and Alfred McCullough, two freshmen on the defensive line, are lighting it up in practice. Gilberry says they're coming along great and that they're in great shape already.

The coaching staff has been mixing and matching players on the offensive line, trying to find the right combination. Chris Capps looks like he won't be anything close to starter, which is fine by me.

The Tuscaloosa News tells us the story behind Zeke Knight's injury last season. Looks like he's back and ready to hit people this year. That's one thing I haven't noticed in the past...all of these guys just really want to hit people. That's definitely a good thing.

Javier Arenas is ready to return some kicks. Seriously. He's also added 15 lbs of muscle to his frame, so not only can he run past you...he can run over you if he wants.

The DBs are learning "eye control." This is something they apparently never learned under the previous coaching staff. Should make for some interesting defensive series.
