Hump-freakin-day, baby.
Days 'til the Who's come callin': 10

Don't have much time to get to a whole lot today, so we'll just break right into the news. I'll have more, including some back and forth with our buddy over at Pelican State Sports, this afternoon.

Alabama has until gametime next Saturday to declare the 5 suspended players ineligible. The NCAA doesn't want them "just sitting out a game" while a school continues an investigation. Either they're ineligible or they're not. Read more here.

Bama has been improving, and LSU suddenly looks beatable. Could spell for a classic matchup on November 3rd. The Clanton Advertiser talks about how the LSU/Auburn and Alabama/Tennessee games helped setup what should be a beast of a game.

Coach Saban says that the Tide is not focusing on LSU in this week's practices just yet. They're working mainly on fundamentals and improving in areas where they're messing up. A gameplan isn't necessarily always about preparing for what the other team will be doing - it's more or less what you do that will set the tempo. If a team doesn't win then it's generally because of something they messed up on. Like the Florida State game - poor pass protection led to John Parker's fumble inside the 10 yard line which game FSU an easy score, which also proved to be the difference in the game. Get better at everything, don't make as many mistakes, and you can win any ballgame on the schedule.

LSU has gotten into a habit of making mistakes - like 12 penalties for 103 yards against Kentucky, and poor clock management against Auburn. They're working on all of that during the bye week, but hopefully we can count on them to be idiots again. Read more here.
