Tyler Love is up to a whopping 305 lbs before he even steps foot on campus. He says it's all muscle too. Jeez. Read more on our new starting right tackle here.
Alonzo Lawrence's ACT score was red flagged because the score jumped too high from his previous attempt. The coaches say he'll be fine because they know he actually took the test. If nothing else, he'll enroll in August instead of June. Read up on it here.
The Pensacola News Journal is predicting Alabama to go 9-3, but finish third in the west. I'm curious exactly how they've got that happening. I guess we shall see.
Congrats to the guys at Roll Bama Roll for acquiring a publisher and getting up the cahones to write a full 112 page book about our beloved Crimson Tide. Should be out in July, or so they say. I'm proud of em, and you can bet I'll be there first day as soon as it's on the shelves.
COACH STALLINGS: game #11: Auburn @ Alabama - Birmingham, AL - 12/1/90
Man, talk about another game that the defense was just brutal.
After a season that started with three straight losses, Coach Stallings had finally gotten the defense playing the way he wanted, and they came up big by only giving up 38 points in their last 6 games of the regular season, while piling up a 7-1 record after the first 3 losses.
Auburn had won 3 straight in the series, but Coach beat them in his first try, 16-7. He was treated accordingly, being carried off the field part of the way by the team.
As soon as the game was finished, President Roger Sayers accepted a bid to the Fiesta Bowl to play 9-1-1 Louisville. What made this huge was the fact that the faculty senate at UA had voted to reject an invitation because Arizona voters had recently voted down a proposal to make Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a paid holiday for state workers. Didn't matter. That ain't got nothin to do with football.
