Only one more week....
If you pick bowl games based on who looks at the game as a bigger accomplishment, then you should probably go with Colorado in the Independence bowl. Alabama, one time at 6-2 and in control of their own destiny to get to the SEC championship game, has stumbled and lost 4 straight, while Colorado had to win their last game, 65-51 over Nebraska, to get to their 6th win. Read more about the momentum swings here.

West Virginia fans and players aren't taking too kindly to Rodriguez leaving for Michigan. The press conference was this morning in Ann Arbor to announce him as the new head football coach. Word on the street is that Terry Bowden (yes, that Terry Bowden) is in talks with the school already about replacing Richie.

The Crimson Tide returned to practice yesterday, practicing indoors to avoid the below-40 temperatures to get warmed up for practice all week. They'll practice two times today, and then will have practice every day this week, concluding with a morning workout on Saturday. They'll take off the 23rd and 24th before traveling to Shreveport on Christmas Day. They will hold the rest of their scheduled practices in Shreveport.

John Pruett makes a very good point - if you think these bowl games don't mean anything to Alabama and Auburn, you're nuts. Don't you think Nick Saban would MUCH rather finish the year 7-6 than 6-7? Yeah. Read more here.

Ian goes into detail about the balancing act between over-preparing and under-preparing for bowl games, and the juggling that Coach Saban is trying to do. Read more here.

Bama is definitely happy to be in the Independence Bowl, especially considering there was a chance they wouldn't go bowling at all. Read more here.
