I hate Tennessee.
Days 'til Kickoff: 113

Gene Robinson woke up Wednesday with no scholarship offers. Then, that night, the Memphis defensive back had two - from Alabama and Ole Miss. Read up on him here.

Antoine Caldwell has been named to the Rimington Award watch list for the 3rd consecutive year (the award for best center). Pretty dang cool. Maybe he'll actually win it this year. Read up on it here.

If you're a recruit, and you didn't already know this, your summer break will not be lasting very long. Coach Saban wants and expects all qualified incoming freshmen to be enrolled for the first summer session at Alabama, which starts on June 3rd. Yup, that's right. No, they can't start mandatory practices til August (it's against NCAA rules), but they can begin the strength and conditioning program, and they can conduct "voluntary" workouts with other teammates to start learning "the process." Coach Saban talked about it at the Crimson Caravan in Tuscaloosa. Read more here.

The Crimson Caravan made the stop in Tuscaloosa, and boy was it big. Check out's coverage of the event here.

COACH STALLINGS: game #6: Alabama @ Tennessee - Knoxville, TN - 10/20/90

It's games like this that really make Tennessee hate Alabama. And I absolutely love it. In 25 games, dating from 1988 through 1990, Tennessee only suffered 3 losses, and all of them were to Alabama. Tennessee was ranked #3 in the country coming into this game (how, I have no idea - they were 4-0-2 going in).

The game was a defensive battle. Bama held Tennessee's supposedly high-powered offense to just 175 yards and no touchdowns (and only 3 first downs in the first half). Regardless, Tennessee had driven far enough downfield to attempt a 50-yard field goal with 1:35 left in the game to try and win it. Stacy Harrison blocked the kick and Alabama recovered the ball back downfield at the Tennessee 37. The Tide gained 7 yards and ran the clock down to 4 seconds before Phillip Doyle hit the game winner from 48 yards out to upset the Vols 9-6. The video below says it best.

Overall Stallings record: 3-3
