Dude. It's the weekend.
Days 'til Kickoff: 92

92. Man, that was a good year. Gave up 8 touchdowns total that year. Defense scored 4, so, in all, the defense gave up a net of 4 touchdowns the entire season. Yup.

Goin to see comedian Craig Gass tonight at the comedy club here in Memphis. This guy is awesome. His Pacino, Walken, Tracy Morgan, and Gene Simmons impressions are flawless. Seriously. Check him out on youtube.

The women's softball coach, again, choked under pressure. The girls were up 1-0 going into the 7th inning, and promptly intentionally walked the tying run in the first at-bat, then gave up 3 runs total to lose the game in the last inning, 3-1. Now we get to try and fight our way out of the elimination bracket. Read more here.

There's a lil more info about the possible SEC network here. From everything that I've heard from my "sources," ESPN wants to start picking up some of the 11:30 games after this season when then contracts are up. They want to become a bigger part of the SEC's networking, partly because the SEC games on ESPN (which is on basic cable) did better than ABC's primetime broadcasts this year, just because people are more interested in the SEC's games. Ratings mean everything, folks.

Coach Saban talked about wanting the Iron Bowl to return to national prominence. It's been almost a decade since the game meant anything on a national scale, which shouldn't be the case. This should be the game that everybody's interested in seeing, rather than all these other rivalries. Read more about the banquet in Mobile last night here.

COACH STALLINGS: game #21 - Alabama 20 @ LSU 17 - Baton Rouge, LA - 11/9/91

This was Jay Barker's first career start, and boy did he almost blow it. He was 7 of 14 for 81 yards, which shows how conservative the game plan was. The biggest mistake of the night was him throwing an interception late in the 4th quarter at the 45 yard line. Alabama only led 20-17, but after LSU drove down, they attempted a 28-yard field goal, with was blocked by Antonio London to preserve the victory. This was the 7th straight Alabama win, which moved them to 8-1 overall.

Overall Stallings record: 15-6
