Yup. Only 93 days. Feels like an eternity. We did find out some interesting news though...
TiderInsider.com is reporting that Alonzo Lawrence has been cleared by the NCAA, which is huge news. I agree with OTS over at RollBamaRoll.com - this kid will start immediately, opposite Kareemawheat. :-)
We also have found out that ESPN has picked up the September 27th matchup between Georgia and Alabama in Athens as one of their 3 premiere SEC games this season. So you can bet it's gonna be a night game between the hedges. Should be a looong day of tailgating.
The SEC coaches voted yesterday 9-3 in support of the conference supporting an early signing date for football. They're in favor of not having to 'babysit' the commitments they get early, so they can spend more time going to get others without other programs sneaking in late to steal them away. Read more here.
Saban's kinda laughing about the trip to Baton Rouge this year. He had a coach tell him that none of the assistants are going to be riding on the bus with him on the way down there. Haha. Read more here.
Fox Sports has ranked the top 10 impact freshmen for next season, and the #1 ranking went to Julio Jones. Check it out.
COACH STALLINGS: game #20 - Miss St 7 @ Alabama 13 - Tuscaloosa, AL - 11/2/91
Alabama was leading late in the ballgame, 13-7, and Mississippi State had just gotten a first down at the Alabama three with less than 3 minutes left in the game. The Bulldogs ran to the 1 on the next play, then were stuffed on 2nd down. On 3rd down, they tried to run again from the 6, and got to the 3 yard line. On 4th down, Sleepy Robinson dropped back to pass and was picked off by Stacy Harrison. That pick sealed the game, and Alabama's 6th straight victory.
