That's right. Bocephus. Skynyrd. Same night on the same stage. It's gonna be ridiculously awesome. My pops and I are going. I grew up listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd. Every Saturday when we'd take the trip down to Tuscaloosa or Birmingham for Tide games, we'd always have 1974's Second Helping blasting in the car, with Sweet Home Alabama, the Needle and the Spoon, Workin' for MCA, Don't ask me no Questions, etc. Even though it's not the original band, it's still close enough for me. I'm gonna have a blast.
Yeah, yesterday....again...we had issues with updating. POS blogger server. But, I guess it's done ok for almost 2 years now...no need bashing it now.
Destin Hood went #55 to the Washington Nationals yesterday, which is a contract worth about $300k-$500k, and a signing bonus of around $2M. I'm thinkin he's probably gone. Haven't heard anything about Melvin Ray though, so that's cool.
Under the Lights was AWESOME on Wednesday. Definitely got me hyped up to be a fan of this team. The direction we're headed is definitely a good one. They'll be reshowing it quite a bit, so check it out if you haven't. According to Ian, you can watch it online now - Go to Foxsports.com, then click on the more videos to the right, then click on the spring cfb tab and the segments will be there. Should be in 4 parts.
COACH STALLINGS: game #25 - Vanderbilt 8 @ Alabama 25 - Tuscaloosa, AL - 9/5/92
David Palmer was held out of this one for disciplinary reasons, but the team got the job done anyway. Michael Proctor, starting as a freshman, kicked 4 field goals on the afternoon and a late interception return for a touchdown sealed the deal against the 'Dores.
Overall Stallings record: 19-6
COACH STALLINGS: game #26 - Southern Miss 10 at Alabama 17 - Birmingham, AL - 9/12/92
The Tide basically gave Southern Miss their points in this one, through turnovers, etc, but they dominated the game (everywhere but the scoreboard). Alabama had 383 yards of total offense to USM's only 54, along with 19 first downs to USM's 3. Alabama more than doubled Southern Miss's time of possession, but couldn't find ways to turn it into points. Either way, they snuck by a stingy Southern Miss team that didn't quit.
