Yeah, I got caught in a whirlwind yesterday at work and had zero time to actually update the site. I apologize.
Anyway, you don't care about that...you just want what's going on. I know you cats. Haha.
As The Capstone Report talked about yesterday, the expansion to Bryant-Denny Stadium has been postponed because of the current economic slowdown. You know the world's in trouble whenever you run into issues getting money from people that actually have it.
As far as voting goes for the new EA Sports Mascot Challenge, we're currently in 7th place...and we're losing to Auburn. So go here to vote. You can vote once a day. I do it on a regular basis, so you should too.
RollBamaRoll.com goes over the 2008 Preview of the Offense, and damn - OutsidetheSidelines does a great job. I love reading his work. Todd and Nico did a good job picking him up for the site.
Everybody going into spring practice has a chance to earn some playing time this fall, if they work their tail off...but in the end, the coaches won't be surprised to see up to 10 incoming freshmen get significant playing time this season. Sounds good to me.
You've got to love the fact that Coach Saban thinks this team is better prepared to go through spring practice than was last year's. The 4th quarter program has really worked for these kids, so they're better suited to stay consistent. Read more here.
Tim Gayle, at the Montgomery Advertiser, gives you a brief layout of everything that you need to know regarding the Tide's first practice of the spring, which happens today. Maybe we'll hear some exciting news...or maybe, since it's closed off, we won't hear anything. We'll just have to wait and see.
Ian, just like the rest of us, is a curious bastard. The only difference is that when he wants to know something, he starts calling around to get answers. Luther Davis is, of course, out this spring, and didn't finish the last few weeks of the S&C program - and Ian wanted answers. So, while Coach Saban won't give us any details, he thought surely Luther's high school coach would. Anyway, the issues are definitely personal, because nobody's really talking. The word is that Luther is going to stay in class at Alabama and work his ass off to get back by fall, but other than that, we don't know much. It's not an injury, although he did hurt his back not long ago (but that's healed). So, until then, just read up on Ian's research and I guess that'll be the end of it.
