I sat up late...again...and watched Memphis and USC. Those two teams have just OODLES of talent. It's kinda ridiculous. And I'm beginning to wonder if maybe there's something up with the rims in the Garden, because people were missing shots that they should have hit all night long, even in the Kansas State / Notre Dame game.
And damn, if you watched ND vs K-State, you woulda seen one ugly giant mutant kid playing for the Irish. That kid, whatever his name is, was ferocious and big and ill-tempered. He won player-of-the-game from ESPN, so he's alright, I suppose.

Ray Melick tackles the idea that if you want to see the future of Alabama football, just look at LSU. NFL scouts would go into LSU's locker room and feel like they were in an NFL locker room. That's how big and talented the guys were. He also does a little bit about Coach Shula, talking about how he wasn't really surprised about some of the stories that came out of Tuscaloosa this year, and how he took some chances on players in his first two seasons, thanks to probation, etc, that may have had some character flaws. Yeah. Read more here.
Well, it's about time to REALLY get involved with recruiting...so to get you started, Andrew Bone talks about the kids that had their official visits last weekend, and the kids that will visit this weekend, including Julio Jones. Read the article here.
Alabama plays Georgetown tonight at 6pm in Birmingham, and it's going to be an absolute showdown between our big man, Richard Hendrix (6'9") and their big man, Roy Hibbert (7'2"). Yes, there's a considerable size difference, but just watch Hendrix. He's got enough power to be able to bang with Hibbert. Read more about the matchup here.
