Remember Chris Rock's god-awful movie called "Pootie Tang?" Yeah. Wadatay.

Days 'til Season Kickoff: 18

I've been reading Clay Travis' new book, Dixieland Delight, as of late, and I've gotta give it to him: the guy is a phenomenal writer. For anybody that enjoyed Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer, you've got to go and get this book. It's a great read.

So, anyway, on to some more important news.

In case you didn't hear it last night, or read it on the blog here, the Alabama game will, most likely, be a 6pm PPV kickoff, thanks to Florida's game being moved to 12:30. I think a lot of this had to do with the fact that they're on Eastern Time, so they would have a whole 'nother hour to tailgate before gametime at 12:30. That's just a guess though.

If you are at all interested in breaking down our opponent in week 1, the Western Carolina Catamounts, then I suggest checking out the report from their first scrimmage, which was held last night. They also took part in picture day, whatever that is.

Alabama finished another 2-a-day session yesterday, with full pads in the morning and helmets, shoulder pads, and shorts for the evening.

John Parker Wilson gets it. The new offense almost seems perfect for him, and he's on key with his receivers - partly because they met every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday throughout the summer to get on the same page.

The Times Daily tells us about recent Alabama and Auburn practices, but what I noticed the most was the fact that down at the bottom there's an individual note that lets us know that there are still tickets available for Auburn's games against Kansas State, South Florida, Mississippi State, New Mexico State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and Tennessee Tech. Jeeeez.

Mike McCoy has worked his way up to working with the 1st team offense (even though there is no depth chart). Check out more here.

Terry Grant just keeps on rolling in practice. Read more about that here.

The defense has finally started to come around. I guess the butt-whippin they got in the scrimmage on Saturday, and Coach Saban getting after 'em pretty good after the showing, was enough to really get them fired up to play better. The front seven was significantly better, and they look to continue to improve.

Recruiting is going extremely well, and Andrew Bone, from the Tuscaloosa News, gives us an update on commitments we're still waiting for.
