Yup. Last night was just as rough as I thought it would be.
But, after we left, we all went to Central BBQ, ordered a couple of racks of ribs, and a couple of pitchers of beer, and everything seemed to be ok. Time to move on. We've got a show in Jackson, TN tomorrow night, so I guess it's the right time now.
The show in Jackson should be cool. We're playing with a band called TrustCompany from Montgomery, AL. They were called 41down back in the day - and the day was a Wednesday. Anyway, lots and lots of rock n roll, my friends. We're ready to roll.
Arkansas State has signed on to play Alabama on November 1st, 2008, which appears to take the spot of Northern Illinois. That still leaves the question of the Clemson game. I still haven't heard any news regarding it.

Matthew Zemek, over at Fox Sports, talks about all of the soap operas in the SEC right now, and he goes about comparing Saban and Petrino - rather unfairly if you ask me. Saban at least had the nuts to wait out the season. Regardless, you can see Arthur Blank's press conference there as well - which is awesome because he calls out Petrino in the most "professional" way possible. check it out.
