It's amazing.
Days 'til Utah: 25

Y'know, it really is unbelievable how one thing one guy does can change how you feel about an entire team. But watch #63 for the Gators.

That's classless. Karma's a bitch, Florida.

Regardless, I'm through with that, but I'm all over this Utah matchup. Dude. Really? I want you to take a look at their defensive linemen.

DE 41 Koa Misi | 6-3, 263, Jr., 1V
DE 94 Christian Cox | 6-1, 255, So., RS

DT 11 Paul Kruger | 6-5, 255, So., 1V
DT 90 Derrick Shelby | 6-3, 245, Fr., HS

NT 90 Derrick Shelby | 6-3, 245, Fr., HS
NT 99 Aaron Tonga | 6-2, 292, Sr., 1V

DE 56 Greg Newman | 6-4, 260, Sr., 2V
DE 43 Lei Talamaivao | 6-2, 290, So., 1V
DE 98 Sealver Siliga | 6-3, 325, Fr., HS

Sorry, but those guys look a lil small to me. They've got some big guys that look like they're lower on the depth chart, and the smaller guys appear to be getting the most playing time.

As far as the offense goes, Coach Wittingham has already stated that he and Urban will be on the phone a little bit to discuss gameplanning about the Sugar Bowl. Read more here.

Antoine Caldwell, Rashad Johnson, and John Parker Wilson were all named permanent captains for this season at the Football Banquet yesterday. Very good group, if you ask me. All three were leaders, and displayed the character that we should expect from our members of our football team. I like the selections.

Now, we've got to get ready for Utah, but here's an early look at our tentative 2009 schedule. We've only got 2 non-conference games scheduled, but the conference schedule is manageable, even breaking in a new QB and new offensive linemen.

Sept 5th VaTech Atlanta, GA
Sept 12th Fla Intl Tuscaloosa, AL
Sept 19th TBA Tuscaloosa, AL
Sept 26th Arkansas Tuscaloosa, AL
Oct 3rd @Kentucky Lexington, KY
Oct 10th @Ole Miss Oxford, MS
Oct 17th South Carolina Tuscaloosa, AL
Oct 24th Tennessee Tuscaloosa, AL
Oct 31st TBA
Nov 7th LSU Tuscaloosa, AL
Nov 14th @Mississippi St Starkville, MS
Nov 21st ------OPEN WEEK------
Nov 28th @Auburn Auburn, AL

What do you guys think? Manageable schedule next year?

Comments: That's a scary Oct. 10 meeting at (can't believe I'm saying this) Ole Miss. We have to replace a lot of talent at a lot of key positions. That being said, we'll kill em all. Roll Tide.
