It's officially humpday, and I'm not sure what to do. There's no more basketball (other than the crappy NBA), and there's no football (other than spring football) til late August. Jeeez.
What exactly did we do last year?
I'm sure we'll find something interesting to pass the time. I'll come up with a list to keep us occupied each and every day. Right? Ehh, we'll see. Maybe something to do with Coach Stallings. Or maybe Nick Saban's best moments. Or something. Haha. Who knows. Til then, we've still got A-Day to focus on. I'll have a blog to post when I get back from Tuscaloosa, so I'll detail what all we've ended up doing.
Brian Motley. Now that's somebody you've gotta feel sorry for. We thought last year that he was really going to be able to help us out. Then, he got injured. This year, we really thought he was gonna be able to help us out. Then, he got injured again. Yup. Doctors are holding him out of Saturday's A-Day game because they "don't want to take any chances" with him. I guess that understandable. Still kinda hard to swallow for a guy that puts everything he can into football.
Sporting News says that Nick Saban is an SEC monster in Tuscaloosa. They rank him 4th out of all the coaches in the SEC. I guess that's cool. He'll move to number one again in a few years.
CSTV is saying that Bama is right on the cusp of the top 25, at least in their spring polls. They must not know about our depth issues. Haha.
Coach Saban's second season is going WAAAAY more smoothly this time around. Everything is "clicking and running on all cylinders" and the players know it. They know what they're doing now. Read more here.
The defensive line is looking ferocious right now in practice. Of course, that's before we even get the new talent into school. We'll see what happens with those kids, because we're not sure who's getting into school and who's not. Regardless, it's gonna be awesome. Read about Brandon Deaderick and the wrecking crew here.
The basketball team is absolutely falling apart in Tuscaloosa now. Initially, after last season, the only member of the team that was going to be gone was Mykal Riley. No, it wouldn't be easy to replace him, but we had Steele coming back, along with Hendrix, Gee, Pickett, Hillman, Jemison, etc. And now, Steele and Hendrix are testing the NBA (and there are rumors that Gee will do the same), and Pickett and fan fave Justin Tubbs are transferring. I'm sure there will be more to this soon. The starting lineup, at the moment, is embarrassing if these guys leave. We'll have more about the basketball team after spring practice wraps up.
