Rainin' and Thunderin'
Holy Moly. It was rainin it's rear end off this morning. Woke up to a Tornado warning and a thunderstorm like freakin nothing I've seen in a long time. And it's January. Ridiculous.

Went to Central BBQ last night. Once again, freakin awesome. Nothin like Dreamland, but it's still pretty good. Speaking of that, I need to get on over to Tuscaloosa sometime soon. I'm missing some Dreamland, big time.

The Clemson / Alabama game next year will be missing one big time star - James "Thunder" Davis, the big running back that had a big bulk of the carries this year for the Tigers, has decided to enter his name into the NFL Draft. For him, it's more about the financial reasons than anything else. He has a one year old daughter. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am that he's gone.

We talked last year about the possibility that Pete Carroll would leave for the NFL because of the risk that USC may go on probation. How else would you explain Carroll's interest to speak with Arthur Blank? The Falcons job is awful. Just wait until that book comes out later this month that will tell all the details about Reggie Bush and his "special treatment."

Corey Smith and Chris Jackson, the two recruits that enrolled early, are looking to play early and contribute to the football team immediately. Jackson could especially step in soon, since we've lost our top three wide receivers. Read more about those two here.

Caldwell has finally gotten his letter back from the Advisory Committee, but he still has not made a decision on whether he will be going pro or not. My guess is that he's staying on for another year. If it was a great grade, then he would have already said he's gone. Read more here.

Tennessee's leading tackler (and the SEC's leading tackler) Jerrod Mayo, is heading to the NFL. Mayo has already achieved his undergrad degree, and he feels like he's already accomplished everything that he can at UT. Apparently he doesn't care about an SEC Title or National Title. Haha.

Kevin Steele is one of a billion candidates that have interviewed for the South Alabama job. He'll be building the program basically from scratch. My guess is that Jeff Bower will get the job. Read more about Steele's interview here.
