What a day.
Man, today's gonna be a long day. One of the guys that used to roadie for my band committed suicide on Saturday night while we were playing a show. All of us have been doing our best to try and not let it really get to us, because there's nothing we can do, but tonight's his wake and tomorrow's the funeral. It's gonna be pretty difficult to get through. We've got another show on Friday, and it'll be only his 2nd show to miss. Please pray for his family because they were already going through some tough times. His mother was diagnosed with breast cancer the day before he did it. RIP Stevo. Your memory is with us forever buddy. We love and miss you.

Our prized recruit, Mr. Julio Jones, was named Alabama's Mr. Football for 2007. Pretty big deal. Of course, he's a humble kid, and rather than take all of the attention, he directed some of it to his teammates as well. "This award here is just for me," Jones said, "but it shows how much hard work my teammates put in as well." He's just a good kid.

Coach Saban basically has told the players to either buy-in to the process, or get outta T-Town. There is a list of players (he didn't name) that will be encouraged to transfer to another school, and several that will not be retained on scholarship. Bottom line: clean out the bad seeds and start anew.

Pat Forde apologized to Nick Saban in his most recent article, letting him know that his place as "king of the liars" has been replaced by one Bobby Petrino. Read more here.

And yes, that means that Petrino has taken over as the head coach at the University of Arkansas. This could end up being a good hire, but at the same time, I think Mr. Petrino is going to end up finding out that good quarterbacks don't grow on trees, and in the SEC, there are some big bad dudes that will be looking to rip the QB's head off on every you better find another way to win other than constantly throwing the football.

The media is absolutely eating Petrino for lunch. He did worse than Saban. Rather than wait until the season was over, he just completely quit on his team. That's ridiculous. Yahoo sports completely rips him.

Auburn has hired Tony Franklin as offensive coordinator, bringing him in from Troy. This is, of course, the best possible fit, because Franklin was on Hal Mumme's staff at Kentucky when the school went on probation for buying football players. Yup. Same guy. Read more here. With Auburn losing the recruiting battle as bad as they are, they needed somebody to come in with some experience on paying athletes, I suppose.
