That's what we're hoping for over the next couple of months. The players are still on campus for the summer, but they've rallied together and have decided that nobody is going to the Strip anymore. That's definitely a good thing. Caldwell and JP Wilson both talked about it in the Birmingham News. Check it out.
SportingNews.com has picked up the story about student football tickets selling out in 2 hours and 20 minutes. The Crimson White also tells us about it. My honest opinion - get your ass up and go get the tickets. Wait in line. And then, if you don't get them, it's on you. Not to mention the fact that last year I saw THOUSANDS of tickets for big games onsale on facebook and stubhub, etc. Most of these were "student tickets." If you really want them, stop selling them. Problem solved.
I was in Tuscaloosa, but didn't go over to the Walk of Champions for the captains. If I had, I would have seen that they mis-spelled Antoine Caldwell's first name - rather than Antoine, it was Atnoine. Cute.
Ian filled us in on the positives from spring practice, but also left us with the questions that will need to be answered once fall rolls around. Read more here.
Latest word from the basketball program is that Gottfried has been told to hire an assistant coach that knows what they're doing...or next year could be his last. Hearing this from more than one source. Not that anyone cares what's happening with the basketball team or anything. Haha.
Coach has offered a scholarship to Atlanta offensive tackle Kellen Williams. Read up on it here
