Bada friggin bing. I think I have pink eye. Definitely sucks. Probably got it from my kid, who probably got it from someone at day care. Oh well. Haha. I guess it is what it is. Just wash my hands a ton and don't touch my eye.
Had a band meeting last night. We're working on a few things. Head over to our myspace page on Saturday, May 31st for some big time updates.
Caulton Tudor, from the Charlotte Observer, says that Thursday night games are ridiculous because Saturday is the day for college football, just like Friday is for high school, and sunday is for the NFL. Read more of his opinions here. I tend to agree with him...but if I didn't have games every night of the week, I'm not really sure what I would do with my time.
There were some rumblings that Alabama and Hawaii might start up another series. Most people think it won't happen. I agree. Can anybody give me one good reason to do a home-and-home with Hawaii, unless you're on probation?
Andrew Bone thinks Alabama will continue dominating in-state recruiting on the defensive side of the ball. Read up.
Clemson starting linebacker Cortney Vincent has been kicked off the team. That's good news for us, I suppose. Read more here.
Fox has the Alabama / Clemson game in their list of the Top 5 games of 2008. They're saying it may be the only chance anybody has of beating Clemson on their way to a national championship game, and they're saying if Alabama loses, it could be a long year in Tuscaloosa. For some reason, I just don't see either of those playing out that way.
COACH STALLINGS: game #13: Temple at Alabama - Birmingham, AL - 8/1/91
This game was almost a bit ridiculous. Danny Woodson ran 85 yards on the first possession, and Chris Anderson had an Alabama record 96-yard touchdown run. Siran Stacy also came back from his injury in the first game of the 1990 season and ran for one touchdown and also threw a touchdown to Prince Wimbley. The Tide rolled all over Temple in the first meeting between the new Big East conference and the SEC. Final Score: 41-3 Bama.
