Coach Saban has his 3rd commitment for next year's recruiting class with Austin Shepherd, a 6'4" 316-pound offensive lineman from North Gwinnett High in Suwanee, GA. He hasn't been rated yet, but my guess is he'll be a 4*. He's a big ol boy too. Fits Saban's idea of an Offensive Guard perfectly.
Lane Kiffin. Boy howdy. He just gets himself into more crap. Now there are stories coming out about him telling a South Carolina recruit that if he goes and plays for the Gamecocks he'll "end up pumping gas for the rest of his life like all the other players from that state who had gone to South Carolina." Ok, that makes Florida, Alabama, and South Carolina that will likely beat the Vols by 4 touchdowns next year, if not more. Read Orson's thoughts on it here.
Oh yeah, and speaking of Florida...
Yup. If you didn't think they were going to use Kiffin's crap as motivation...well, you were just an idiot. It's already in the football complex. I mean, how dumb do you have to be to call out the defending national champs, who don't lose ANYBODY, especially when you're playing in their house. Wow.
We have a legitimate chance to win this year's SEC tournament. And no, I'm not insane. This is the weakest field that's been in this tournament in a long time...and we're playing the best basketball we've played in quite a while. So make sure you're keeping up with it. There's the real chance we could be playing in the championship game on Sunday...and the real chance we could lose in the first round. If nothing else, it'll make things interesting. Don't forget...last year it was Arkansas and Georgia in the championship game.
