BBall...or recruiting.
Alabama finally pulled out a clutch win, beating LSU 81-72 in Tuscaloosa. Once again, another victory.

Y'know, I had wondered how on earth this team sold out a game against LSU, with as poorly as these two teams had been playing. But then, today, I realized it's Junior Day for the 2009 recruiting class to come in on unofficial visits. There were, according to Ian, almost 200 juniors, and their parents, etc, who were at the game. Makes it pretty easy to sell out a game with an extra nearly 1,000 people in the building (including football coaches and their families, incoming recruits, juniors, and more).

And just so you know, here's what people were REALLY paying attention to during the game...

From the left: Burton Scott, Julio Jones, Robert Lester, Mark Barron, and under Barron is '09 commitment, DJ Fluker.

Wow. Talk about 5 big time players. And, if this doesn't tip the scale in Bama's favor as to who he's signing with on Wednesday, I don't know what does. He was at nearly every Alabama home game this football season, and has come back several other times, just by himself. Sounds good to me. With about 12 minutes left in the game, all 12,000 people at the game started chanting "JU-LI-O! JU-LI-O! JU-LI-O!" And, about 5 minutes after the chant, his crew all got up and headed out. Talk about a helluva cameo. Read Ian's account of it here.

Ok, so, not too long ago, I thought I had read everywhere that Jerrell Harris had removed Alabama from his list of schools. And yet, if you check out Rivals' prediction list, they believe he's Alabama bound. Very strange to me. Also, I had heard that TJ Bryant had become an Alabama lean over the past few days, according to Tom Luginbill. Guess that's pretty wrong.

The Barners are beginning to come to grips with the fact that they'll always be #2 in the state of Alabama. Read this blog.
