It never fails. I'm constantly a day behind. Alas, I am picking up today where I left of Monday.
The Arkansas game is now scheduled for an 11:30am CST kickoff in Fayetteville on Raycom. I'm really looking forward to this game...but, we've got Western Kentucky to deal with first. Finish is the name of the game.
We talked the other day about recruit Michael Bowman from Georgia, who's the top rated wide receiver in the state. Well, it appears he will officially commit to the Tide this weekend when he attends the Western Kentucky game.
Alabama has also begun flirting with Auburn commitment Jonathan Atchinson, a linebacker who narrowly picked the Tigers over the Tide. After watching the Clemson game, Atchinson admitted that he hasn't "closed the door yet."
The Legend of Terrence Cody actually has a great story behind it. Read up on the Montgomery Advertiser's write-up here.
I ran across some interesting stuff over at the Washington Huskies message boards. They seem to think that Ty Willingham will be resigning after this season, and that Nick Saban will be taking over. Thought you might get a kick out of it. Read more here.
Bob Toledo sure does know how to talk, doesn't he? Last week he said in an interview at WJOX that he just hoped his football team "didn't go out there and embarrass themselves, and then they put up one helluva fight. This week, before playing East Carolina he mentions that the Pirates "might be better than Alabama right now." I remember Lou Holtz and a slew of other coaches poor mouthing their own teams, and making the other team sound like world beaters. Don't be surprised if Toledo's team pulls off a HUUUGE upset this weekend.
Of course, we can always count on Paul Finebaum to put Alabama fans back in their place. With the help of Danny Sheridan, of course. Read more here.
Finally, one of the biggest Bama football fans anywhere...you can read up on how ol' Hank Jr is doing here. He talks about Coach Saban and the Tide, and how it looks like we're headed in the right direction. Haha.
