Yup, it's true. Today's Thursday, thank the good Lord. I've got almost all of my xmas shopping done. I thought I was completely finished...but I forgot a few things, as I'm sure most of you have done as well. Haha. Also, I'm looking for a black Alabama cap - so if anybody run across one, lemme know.
I went to T.J. Mulligan's again last night with my band and one of my friends that just flew in from California a couple of days ago. It's fun to get the whole gang back together. Moody will be coming in from State College, PA on Sunday evening. We'll be killin some flag football and some NCAA 08, like usual. I've you've got any other suggestions for what else to do for Christmas besides drink eggnog and play video games, lemme know. Haha.
Well, after our 75-65 victory over Texas Pan-American last night, we moved up to #94 in the latest Real-time RPI ratings. The victory was a good one, as we held a 21 point lead with 3:30 left in the game, but gave up a late rally by the Broncos to pull it closer than it really was. The win over Wofford didn't look that great, and really made us worry about this team, but after the Terriers beat Purdue in West Lafayette last night, maybe that close win doesn't look so bad. Wofford is, by the way, ranked #74 in the latest rpi rankings, so that makes them Alabama's only win over a top 100 team. We've got a chance to get another over Missouri State on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
Mike Johnson feels like the offensive line will be a force in the bowl game, thanks to everyone being back at their natural positions after all the suspensions and injuries are done with. I look for a good performance out of these boys in Shreveport.
Coach Saban has Alabama at #2 in the SEC in recruiting behind Georgia, and if we finish out with a few of the higher profile 5-star kids like we're expecting, they could finish with a bang and wind-up at #1, not only in the SEC, but in the country.
