Y'know, I find it incredibly funny with everything that has been talked about on the Finebaum show as of late. I had a conversation last night with somebody "in the know" about the Gadsden situation, and from what I understand, the head-honchos down at Auburn - the big boosters and whatnot - are basically trying to get everyone to shut up and leave Gadsden alone. Why would they do this? Because if the NCAA goes snooping around, Auburn fans won't like what they find. Now...without me saying anything else, just stop and think about what that means. Now grin a lil bit. Now laugh.
Alabama picked up a commitment from Demarcus Milliner, 5 star defensive back from Millbrook. Read more here. This may be our biggest get of the year, and it's only June. This kid is a straight up stud. And he's quick too. Runs a 4.35 40. Ridiculously awesome.
Lache Seastrunk, the Auburn recruit that called out Nick Saban last week, actually called Coach Saban and apologized for what he said (which wasn't really that bad), and then spewed a lot of compliments about Saban and the amount of respect he has for him. Definitely came off good for us. Read more here. The rumors are that he stopped in Tuscaloosa and talked with some of the assistant coaches on Monday. Apparently we are still actively recruiting the kid, even though we haven't offered him. Pretty interesting.
ESPN's 50 states tour is hitting Alabama on Monday and Tuesday. We need to vote and make sure the top team from the state is the '92 National Championship team. If we keep splitting the vote between the 79 and 92 teams, Auburn may sneak away with a win. Go here and vote today!
There's talk about Tennessee maybe wearing their orange jerseys in Tuscaloosa this year. Hmmm. More here.

1. I was born in 1978, but that 79 team > 92, although the 93 Sugar was probably more fun for massive-underdog related reasons than the 80 Sugar.
2. As somebody with "in the know" info, can't you just spill a little bit more than what's on message boards (if you know more)? We're dying here. # posted by ty webb : 9:40 PM
I've gotten in trouble in the past for revealing too much information on here, so I can't do too much.
Just know that the Yellow Wood guy likes to throw his weight around. That's about as far as I can go. # posted by Memphis Tider : 11:43 AM
