I really do hate Mondays. With a passion. Monday is easily the worst day of the week, without question. But...I'll try and make the best of it, as I'm sure you're doing as well.
Terrence Cody has officially qualified, as has Marcel Dareus. Sounds pretty good for the D-Line. The Clemson game just officially got more competitive.
And speaking of the Clemson game - Tony Barnhart is hearing to College Gameday is coming to Atlanta for the Tide and the Tigers on August 30th. They're still apparently slating this as the nightcap on ESPN, which should pick up some pretty high ratings. Nice way to start out a football season.
There's an article about how Jim McElwain's offense is helping the QBs at Alabama. It's a very QB friendly way of doing things. Read more here.
There's even more being talked about with Saban wanting incoming freshmen to enroll early (before the June 3rd period), so they can begin the workout programs, etc. Article is here.
The baseball team is streaking heading into this weekend's SEC tournament. They just won a series at, SEC regular season champs, Georgia by totally dominating from the plate. They won the first game 17-13, and won the last game 16-13. Not too shabby for a team that was picked to finish last in the SEC West in the preseason. We get to play Kentucky in the first round.
COACH STALLINGS: game #12: Alabama vs Louisville - Tempe, AZ - 1/1/91
This was a whipping of epic proportions. Coach Howard Schnellenberger played under Coach Bryant at Alabama, so this game meant a lot to him, and it showed with how his team played. They took a 19-0 lead heading into the 2nd quarter, and were up 25-0 when Jeff Brohm threw a pick-6 that gave us our only points of the game. We ended up getting waxed 34-7. It's still the biggest win in Louisville's history.
