Happy hump day, ya'll!
Days 'til season kickoff: 122

Yup. Things have really been that boring. So much so that it's time for the official countdown to kickoff here on the Memphis Tider blog. Normally I at least wait until June, but I couldn't even get that far. I'm sure I'll start another countdown fairly soon, so I can update with at least something every day.

Coach Saban is using this past weekend's NFL draft as a lesson for players that are currently on the team - EVERYTHING you do is being watched, and the NFL guys know it. You've gotta be consistent and relentless and you've got to give your best all the time. You can't slack off. Read more here.

Wanna know why the Tide players got shafted in the draft? Subpar workouts and character issues. Bottom line. Read more here.

I thought Saban's comments regarding Jimmy Johns at last night's Crimson Caravan were pretty funny. According to Ian - "Saban said he's never seen a more popular player who has never played. After that question, he loudly griped that the crowd had the same discipline problems as the players. His wife stepped in and made him apologize."

And even better than that - if you thought the players made the decision to not go onto the're wrong. "When an attendee praised the players for deciding to avoid the Tuscaloosa Strip after several arrests, Saban corrected her: "I made that decision for them. I appreciate you thinking they would take that responsibility, but it wasn't their call."
