Once we get through today, then we've only got tomorrow before the weekend starts. Good deal, right? And boy, do I need it. This week has been ridiculous, thanks to the Nashville trip, and having things piled up on me here at the office. I've been playing catch-up ever since. Of course, I'm not too busy for the blog, so I guess I shouldn't be complaining. Haha.
My favorite band, Sevendust, announced yesterday that they're bringing back their guitar player that quit back in 2004. His name is Clint Lowery. Now, honestly, they wrote their best material while he was in the band, but the breakup was an ugly one. I know that for certain. Hell, they had songs on the next record about what a piece of shit he was. And then they kick out Sonny, the guy that came in and took his place (and did a damn good job of it), without very much warning. I'm just not really sure what to think about it. I think the material will get better, but I think the live shows will suffer for it. Oh well. Regardless, I'm still a huge fan. Already got my tix for the Jackson, TN show. Haha.
Jimmy Johns has come to the realization that he's a senior now, and his only shot at a starting gig is playing linebacker. And he's getting better at it. This kid has all the physical abilities in the world, so now he just has to learn the position. I wouldn't be surprised to see him starting there this fall.
Rashad Johnson called yesterday's practice one of the best since they've been out there. This year everyone is more relaxed and knows where they're going, as opposed to last year when Johnson had to call plays and tell everyone where to be all the time. It's not as easy to react when you don't know where you're going. Read more here and stop in here to read more about how Johnson is preparing himself physically for the upcoming season.
The offense felt like they had a really good practice as well, according to Antoine Caldwell. He said it was one of the 2 or 3 best practices they've had since he's been here. The offense is clicking, and everyone is really looking forward to Coach's Mac's style. Read more here.
Richard Hendrix made the logical decision and is going to enter his name into the NBA Draft - sort of. He's not hiring an agent, so that way he can come back to school, incase he doesn't go where he's planning to. He'd be a fool to not at least test the waters, so best of luck to him, but here's hoping he'll be back again next year.
