Didn't see that one coming...
Days 'til Kickoff: 120

See ya later dude. It finally happened, and I'm thinking that he must have dome something pretty damn bad this time. Perrilloux was given EVERY opportunity to stay on the LSU team...and he didn't do what he needed to stay on.

So, with that said...that means that Alabama and Arkansas will have the most experienced QBs in the SEC West this fall. I'll honestly take Wilson over Dick any day of the week. This could...possibly...spell good things for us. We'll just have to see how it plays out.

Alonzo Gee announced his intentions to enter the NBA draft yesterday. Pretty interesting news. And for those of you keeping score, that's 6 players from last year's team that could be gone - Ron Steele, Richard Hendrix, and Alonzo Gee have all declared, Riley graduated, and Justin Tubbs and Rico Pickett are transferring. Geez. Not good.

One more scholarship off the board. Charles Hoke has been placed on medical scholarship.

Well, it looks like we have yet another SEC tie-in to a bowl game. Make that number nine. The Bowl in Birmingham will host a Big East team vs an SEC team. Could make for some interesting matchups. Only problem is that it's going to be the 7th place Big East team vs the 9th place SEC team. Geeez. Check out the website here.

For those that had been waiting, I finally figured out what I'm going to do for this year's countdown. I'm a big fan of the "good ol' days," but since I wasn't around for when Coach Bryant was here, I will instead have to go through when Coach Stallings was here. We're going to countdown every Stallings game, from the first one in 1990, all the way to the last game against Michigan on Jan. 1st, 1997. Hopefully we'll be returning to those glory days soon enough.

COACH STALLINGS: game #1: Southern Miss @ Alabama - Birmingham, AL - 9/8/90

This was Coach Stallings' first game at Alabama, and boy was it a doozy. The QB, one of my favorite in Tide history (probably because I watched him dismantle Ole Miss in 1989 in Jackson, MS), Mr. Gary Hollingsworth, threw 2 interceptions to safety Kerry Valrie, who returned one for a touchdown, and returned the other to the 10 yard line to set up another touchdown.

Brett Favre was the QB for the Golden Eagles, and it was a question whether or not he would even play. He didn't put up great numbers (9/17 for 125 yards), but he didn't turn the ball over either. Our offense put up 24 points that day, and our defense held pretty strong, but the turnovers killed us. Those 14 points were the difference in the game as Southern Miss took a rare win against Alabama, 27-24.

Overall Stallings record: 0-1
