Awww yeah. She's a Julio fan already. That's my girl.
We played in Poplar Bluff, MO last night. Man...you talk about a town out in the middle of nowhere. Jeeeeez. I saw some of the biggest bugs ever. Including this spider that I swear was about the size of my palm that just decided to hang out on the side of our trailer. That was odd...and actually pretty scary. It was hairy as crap. Anyway, we played with a band called One Less Reason - and they're really damn good, so go check them out.
I like the fact that Saban has moved Lorenzo Washington to defensive end. It's going to make this defense incredibly versatile. You'll have a defensive end on one side that used to be a defensive tackle. On the other side you'll have a linebacker that will lineup up like a defensive end. You'll also have an outside linebacker that used to be a safety, etc. It's basically just going to drive opposing offenses nuts. I love it.
Javier Arenas is obviously showing out on defense. I wouldn't be surprised if he's a starter against Clemson - but he should be beaten out quickly this season by Alonzo Lawrence. That kid's just too good to keep on the bench. Of course, it really doesn't matter, because they'll just be swapping them in and out on defense. Depth is the key, my friends.
The Montgomery Advertiser has a huuuuge Alabama preview. Looks pretty cool to me, so check it out.
