You know that song "Everybody's workin' for the weekend?" Yeah. That's totally me. I countdown the days until it's Friday so I can get out of here for just a few days. Of course, we have Memorial Day on Monday...so make it a 3-day weekend. I'm goin down to Sardis Lake to go fishing for a couple of days this weekend, so that'll make it even better.
Brodie Croyle, man. It's obvious that it's his team in Kansas City. They haven't gone after ANY other qbs. Which means, he's gotta prove it this year. No more injuries. No more losing all 6 of your starts. Just straight up winning. They've got a lot of the pieces they were missing, so now it's up to BC in KC. Read more here.
All of the Mobile crew are qualified to enroll at Alabama early. I think we'll be losing two kids that we thought we had - Destin Hood and Melvin Ray - to Major League Baseball. So that knocks two more kids off the list. The word I'm hearing from Tuscaloosa is that the coaches are not expecting Murphy to qualify again, so that makes three off the list.

COACH STALLINGS: game #14: Alabama at Florida - Gainesville, FL - 9/14/91
Talk about a butt whipping. I'm sure fans were thinking "Man, in the last 3 games, we've been blown out twice - 34-7 by Louisville and 35-0 by Florida." This game was unbelievably excruciating. The Gators forced 5 Alabama turnovers and didn't allow the offense past the Gator 25 yard line. Florida led 6-0 at the half, but Shane Matthews came out firing in the 3rd and threw two touchdown passes to make it 21-0.
