Hell yeah! I'm gettin pretty damn excited now. Beach and gameday are both coming up in a matter of days - not weeks - days. It's gettin to be that time. Everybody at work is trash talking, so that's cool too. Gets you fired up, y'know?
To anyone in Memphis that wants to help support the University and meet some more Bama fans in the area, please go check out Bama on the Bluff. They're doing some wonderful things, and I'm looking forward to getting involved with that they're doing this fall.
Ian goes into extensive detail what Coach Saban does when picking which players to offer scholarships to - read up on it here. It is really cool to think about all of the little things that go into recruiting.
Gentry Estes touches on what could be the biggest difference between last season and this season - team unity. Everyone is closer, everyone wants to be around each other. It's just a better all around team than a year ago, which could work wonders by the time November rolls around. Read more here.
Josh Moon made a half-assed attempt at explaining his comparison of Coach Saban to a mob boss here. I actually agree with the "mob boss" comparison. This is a very tight knit operation he's running. I can't remember the last time that everybody was really working towards the same goal, and all Alabama fans were fine with anything and everything that the coach did. It's a lot different from previous years.
We are currently losing a vote to Clemson on the ESPN College Gameday page, so go vote here.
If you like lists, then this is for you. There are plenty of "top 5s" here for all Alabama fans. And it's pretty dang true. :-)
