...but stuff like that is bound to happen when you've got a job. Especially one that takes up most of your time. Alas, it's cool. I may be late, but I'm still doing the update. Hell yeah, right?
Oh, and by the way, it's only 2 days til A-Day. :-)
Justin Woodall is the kind of player that every coach wishes he could have. The guy that turns down a seven figure contract from the New York Mets just so he can take a chance at starting at safety. Not to mention the fact that he's one helluva athlete, and you've got a movie story-line. Let's hope this all turns out perfect in the end.
Brandon Deaderick wants to get "at least 10" sacks next year. Why that number? Cause that's what Wallace Gilberry had, and he graduated, so somebody has to step up. I look for this year's defense to be MUUUCH better at the pass rush, as compared to last season's. It's kinda scary, really. I think the passion is there for these kids. And, like I've said all along -- just wait til the other kids get here in August. It'll make you smile. I promise.
Still digging for any idea on who's going to be starting at linebacker this fall? Yeah, us too. And everyone else for that matter. As the Tuscaloosa News has put it, it's been like musical chairs in the linebacking corps so far. One kid who's trying to step up and fill the role is Brandon Fanney. He looks to be the perfect size to play "jack." Can he step up and be the consistent player Coach Saban's looking for? I guess we'll have to wait and find out.
The Sporting News has a FRIGGIN' AWESOME article about the bias media members at ESPN and how ridiculous it is that they've kinda wrapped up the awards, etc, for college football. It's all based on what school the media guys went to. It's ridiculous. Their opinions are crap. Regardless, read it here.
If you're headed to Tuscaloosa, get some good video footage of the championship banners, trophys, etc, and then submit it and show ESPN that Tuscaloosa is called T-Town for a reason. Read Here.
