Man. 2 weeks and 1 day? That's it? Daaaaaaamn. That's insane. Seems like not too long ago that we were talking about the SEC Championship Game. Wait...I guess that was just last week, right?
Alabama basketball beat Tennessee St last night. Won by 9. Shoulda won by 30. I'm not liking what I'm seeing out of this team. They just look dumb. There's no offense or defensive sets. It's just mayhem and chaos. Dribble down the floor and after a pass somebody tries to play one on one then chunk up a bad shot that sometimes will fall for them...against bad teams.
It's just ridiculous to see this team doing this bad. The rest of the conference is down, so with a competent head coach, you could take control of the division and possibly the conference - i.e. Bruce Pearl. He's not THAT great of a coach, but at least he has a clue.
And, of course, you can go ahead and knock Andy Kennedy off that list because something tells me he's about to get the boot at Ole Miss. He was arrested this morning in Cincinnatti for apparently beating the shit out of a taxi driver and yelling racial slurs at him. Woo-hoo. Read more here, here, and here. Interesting turn of events for one of the supposed "hottest coaching prospects in the country." The driver had to have provoked it...of course, it was 1am. And we know what Huggy used to do at 1am. Hahaha.
Anyway, on to more football stuff.
The Tide had 7 players ranked in the top 25 SEC players, with Andre Smith leading all at #2, behind freakin' Superman.
Pat Dye was on Finebaum yesterday...and he accused Nick Saban and Jimmy Sexton of plotting together and putting out negative stories about Auburn to the press, in an attempt to take down the Auburn football program. As if this year wasn't enough to prove that all Saban had to do is what he's already doing - working harder. Auburn got themselves a cat that'll pay some players under the table, like they used to. And that's that. Read more here.
Nationalchamps.net posted their "early bird 2009" preseason rankings, and Alabama comes in at a whopping #2. Read more here.
