I'm goin to see the Foo Fighters tonight, so my day is already going great. It's been a helluva 24 hours, but I'm ready for tonight.
Went over to Ben's Place in Southaven, MS last night to eat. Good food. GREAT baked potato, along with some hush puppies and a good old fashioned cheeseburger. Wonderful restaurant. Got to watch my boys Zach and Chris playing some cover songs again.
I know you're all planning on watching the senior bowl tomorrow, but don't forget to watch the basketball team attempt to get their first SEC win over the shorthanded Auburn Tigers who have already beaten #15 Ole Miss. If you thought other teams had thrown up a lot of 3s against us, you ain't seen nothin yet. These guys live and die by the three ball. Read more about the matchup here.
Everybody that's worried about Terrance Cody going to "tha U" shouldn't be. "Coach Nick Saban is the reason I chose Alabama," Cody said. "I like the school and the players." Read more about the Gulf Coast's top DT here.
Florida somehow managed to get a 5-star from California...because they gave the kid's girlfriend a scholarship as well - she's a gymnast on scholarship at UCLA. Does this seem dirty to you? Immediately after winning the Heisman, before Tebow talked to ANYBODY ELSE, coach Urban Meyer dialed up Carl Moore on his cell phone and gave the phone to Tebow. "Carl! I just won the Heisman! Come on down here and let's win a National Championship!" Wow. Just wow.
Ok, so here's the triangle. Petrino stole Ellis Johnson from Mississippi State. Spurrier stole Brian VanGorder, former Georgia defensive coordinator, from the Atlanta Falcons, where he was linebackers coach. Now, VanGorder is going back to the Falcons, after less than a month, to be the defensive coordinator there, so Spurrier stole Ellis Johnson from Petrino, which leaves Arkansas without a defensive coordinator, currently. Interesting triangle, ehh?
