I've been out of the loop for a few days. We did an IT conversion over the weekend that spilled over until yesterday and it's taken me this long to get my work computer back to where I need it, so I apologize for the delay.
John Mark Stallings passed away over the weekend. He was a class act and brought a smile to the face of every Alabama fan. He was a constant reminder that there are a lot of things that are more important than a football game. He will definitely be missed. I still remember watching him during the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1st, 1993.
I saw the move of Demetrius Goode to the secondary, and I noticed where Josh Chapman is working out with the first team defensive line. I'm digging the way everything is going down. It appears that we have a TON of depth this year, and that's something we haven't seen in quite some time. We have about 10 deep on the defensive line, and that's definitely a welcome sight. I was watching the Alabama / Georgia game last night and they stated "there's nothing like fresh legs in the 4th quarter" when Roy Upchurch came in and spurted off two 8-10 yard runs in the closing minutes. Well, that also goes for defensive players, and if you've got depth, you can win those ballgames.
Collegefootballnews.com has picked us to go 8-4 with losses to Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee, and LSU. I think I might would take that this year.
One of the writers for collegefootballnews.com has a story about how Bama is not back in 2008...at least not yet anyway.
Steve Spurrier ended South Carolina's practice early after getting pissed at some of the players laughing when WR Moe Brown got hit by a linebacker. Read more here.
ESPN is doing everything they can to get Alabama fans fired up for the Clemson game. Not only are they putting ESPN Gameday in Centennial Park for the show, they're also putting Dennis Franchione in the broadcast booth for the ESPN radio broadcast. I'm not really sure how I feel about that, but I figure it's whatever. Water under the bridge. If we go out and beat Clemson, then that'll just shove it in the face of everybody. Yup yup.
