Beginning of the week.
Days 'til A-Day: 33

Almost a month away from A-Day. I'm down with it.

Well, Alabama's season is officially over. I've gotta admit, the loss to Tennessee was incredibly disheartening. Not even being in the ballgame 5 minutes into it really put a damper on the evening.

And I gotta would not hurt my feelings at all if Scenario Hillman is not on this team next year. I don't know how on earth Pearson kept him on the floor as long as he did against Vandy and Tennessee. Hell, the first pass he threw against Tennessee was a lazy pass when it was already obvious that they were overplaying EVERYTHING. Hillman absolutely is the cancer for that team and it's not even close. Get him out of there and you've got yourself a 10-win ball team.

But enough of that. What's done is done and we are now looking at a whole slew of candidates that could end up with the job - Mike Anderson from Missouri, Anthony Grant from VCU, etc. The word is that UA wants to make a BIG splash with this hire, so they're going to go after some HUGE names. And the one that keeps coming up is John Calipari. Now, I cannot think of a single reason why Calipari would leave Memphis for Alabama. But I keep hearing it. Usually where there's smoke, there's fire. We shall see what happens, but I wouldn't put anything on it. Just doesn't make any sense.

Spring practice opened well, from what I understand. Didn't really do a whole lot. More or less got familiar with the drills again and prepared to run through them next week after spring break. I think this team will be one to be reckoned with. They just seem to have that fire - kinda like last year's team. Not to mention Coach Saban started early trying to weed out the bad seeds (Prince Hall and Brandon Fanney). We'll see if they end up with a scholly after being suspended indefinitely.

Tennessee picked up mega-super-ultra-all-star recruit, and almost guaranteed team cancer, Bryce Brown over the weekend. Woo hoo for them. Coach O and Kid Kiffin will have the NCAA crawling all over Knoxville within 2 years. Gotta love it. Read more here.
