So, to be completely honest, Florida should have swept the Bama baseball team this weekend. But instead, the Tide had 2 days worth of late inning drama to steal 2 wins and the series from Florida. Read more about it here. It was absolutely incredible.
We talked about this last week, but the Montgomery Advertiser touches on it a little more. Coach Saban wants as many of the incoming freshmen as possible to be here to enroll on June 3rd to get started in the strength and conditioning program. Read more here.
Cecil Hurt lets us know that McClain's motorcycle accident serves as reminder of how thin the Alabama linebacking corps really is. It's pretty scary, if you think about it. Read up on it here. If you'd like to see Rolando before and after his accident, check out the before & after pics here.
As if it was even a surprise, a story has come out that says OJ Mayo accepted gifts and cash while he was going to school at USC this past season. Yeah. That never happens in college basketball. Riiiight.
DJ Hall is doing a good job of turning some heads at Giants' mini camp. He was hailed as the star of the first day of practice on Saturday. The only issue is whether or not there will be enough roster spots for him. We shall see, I suppose.
If you didn't already think that Baton Rouge is a dirty, nasty place...well, now you have even more reason to start thinking that way. UCF cornerback Johnell Neal was injured in a shooting down there on May 8th. Yup.
COACH STALLINGS: game #7: Penn State @ Alabama - Tuscaloosa, AL - 10/27/90
Just one week after Alabama stymied Tennessee's offense, they did the same thing at home to Penn State. The two teams' defenses absolutely beat the stew out of each other.
The only problem was that our offense couldn't get going either. For the 2nd straight game, the Tide held their opponent without a touchdown through the entire game, but our offense wasn't able to get anything going at all against a stout Penn State defense that led them to 5 straight wins, including the 9-0 shutout of Alabama, which was the Tide's first shutout defeat at home in 35 years.
