What a day....
This is unreal. It's only 10:40 when I'm sitting down to type this out. Seems like the day should be almost done with.

A bit of sad news on the NFL front. Shaun Alexander, the Tide's last first round draft pick, has been cut from the Seattle Seahawks. He issued a very classy statement, and has said that he will be playing in the NFL somewhere this season. Read more here.

The Crimson White did a study around the SEC about which teams allow their students the most chances to purchase tickets, and how many student tickets are in each stadium on Saturdays. Alabama had the 3rd lowest total, and Florida had the highest total. The Tide was well below average. Doesn't really bother me, but at the same time, you don't want to end up with a bunch of really old people that don't get into it either. I don't think we had any problems last year. Javier's punt return against LSU was the loudest I've ever heard that stadium. Anyway, read up on the study here.

Check out what all Nick Saban talked about during last night's Crimson Caravan in Mobile. I'll give you a hint - don't expect too much of the freshmen coming in this fall.

A newspaper in South Carolina talks about America's infatuation with spring football now. We always knew it was there in the fall, but now it's a year-round event. That's definitely a good thing for guys like me, who eat, breath, and live football 24/7/365, y'know? Check out his column here.

Is it possible that Alabama could go 7-5 and still play in a January bowl game? You bet your ass. The Liberty Bowl has set a new date for this year - Friday, January 2nd. And you better believe that we'll be pushing that attendance record that Mississippi State set last year. That is, of course, unless we're in a better bowl game. Read more here.

News that you definitely don't want to hear - Kerry Murphy could be a casualty of this class, thanks to a low ACT score. That's what we're waiting on, and it doesn't look good. The coach at Hargrave has said that Kerry could be there til January. Read more from Ian here.
