Yeah, not much goin on today. If anything big happens, we'll let you know. As of right now, it appears that Tommy Bowden will be the new coach at Arkansas, which can only mean good things for Alabama, because this guy isn't exactly a great coach.
Crimson Chatter, along with numerous other blogs, points out that the three permanent captains selected for the team this year included 2 juniors (Rashad Johnson and Antoine Caldwell) and only 1 senior (Darren Mustin). Of course, it is noteworthy that two of those (Mustin and Johnson) are former walk-ons. That should give you an idea about the talent on this team.
People are ranking the Alabama/Colorado matchup as the worst bowl game matchup. I don't really see that. I think people will be more intrigued to watch Bama/Colo than they would Florida Atlantic/Memphis or Nevada/New Mexico, right? Oh well. Ian chimes in on it here.
Finebaum says that Alabama should stop while it's behind. He believe the bowl game is meaningless, and that the only thing that can happen is us get beat and end with a losing record again. Read more here.

Since I so often log on to disagree, today I thought I would log on to agree with two of your points:
1) The Bowden hire is terrible for Arkansas and great for the other teams of the SEC West. This guy has been so close to getting fired every year, and now Arkansas wants to give him a promotion?
2) I think the Independence Bowl (or whatever it's called) is one of the most interesting. It's two big time schools, with big time traditions, playing in a lower tier bowl. Whichever wins gets a little momentum for next year, and whichever loses is in bad shape. That gives them something to play for, imo, and will make it an entertaining game. # posted by Pelican State Sports : 10:33 AM
Thanks. Haha. # posted by Memphis Tider : 11:04 AM
BTW - Bowden signed an extension, so we won't be getting that game off every year now. Damn! # posted by Pelican State Sports : 3:48 PM
