Yay! Our triumphant hero returns from a looooong week in Nashville. I got in last night from recording our debut album with a producer/engineer named Dan Martinie. The guy's a freakin awesome engineer and a great producer as well. He had a ton of great ideas and it really helped us reach that next level. I'll be about 2 months before we have the final product back (after mixing and mastering), but then we'll be ready to distribute. The release date currently looks like Tuesday, June 24th, but we'll see. That's still tentative.
Sooo, I do see that I've missed quite a bit, and since I'm at work, I can't catch up quite that much...but we'll do what we can. We'll start off as if today is Monday - with Cheers and Jeers.
Cheers to Memphis for shutting up the Bullies from Starkvegas. If you had listened to Memphis sports radio for the past week, that's all they would call in about - how MSU was going to destroy the Tigers. If you watched the game, there was never any doubt who was going to end up winning.
Jeers to the rumors that John Calipari will be Alabama's next head coach. Don't get me wrong - the guy's a helluva recruiter, and what he's done at Memphis is ridiculous, but you don't need to spend 3 mil on a basketball coach per season, especially in a conference as difficult as this, with a fan base as fickle as ours. Cal is already making 2 mil per year in a conference and school where he's the top dog. No reason to come to the SEC. And no reason for Alabama to do anything drastic - yet.
Cheers to the fact that Alabama's spring roster currently only has 67 names on it. And more will be gone by spring. That's right, my friends. Get rid of the bad seeds. What I don't like seeing is the fact that there are only about 15 seniors (might need to recount). Either way, we should be ok as far as depth, etc, is concerned.
Jeers to College Football News predicting that Florida and Ohio State will be playing for the National Championship again after this season. That would be a complete drag to me, and pretty much everyone else. They do have a good point about Georgia having some tough road games though.
Cheers to Coach Saban for not giving a damn when people try to make a big deal out of Les Miles making $1,000 more than him this season. Good work, Coach.
Jeers to Victor Ellis finally losing his battle with cancer last night. Ahmaad Galloway was with him when he finally passed. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family.
Cheers to an LSU writer stating that Ryan Perrilloux should be kicked off the team, even though the depth chart is weak at that position. Read more here.
Like usual, I'm sure I'll have more on here later. For now...back to work.
