Monday = FOCUS.

1. Nick Saban is in the doghouse

Y'know. I've gotta admit that I absolutely LOVE having a coach that is so completely dedicated to this football team that he forgets his own anniversary. In the presser after practice he seemed a lil hellbent. So when he's in the doghouse at home, you better believe the players are feeling the impact of it. Focus, my friends.

Shoulda gotten married after spring practice, Coach. Haha.

2. Steelers beat the Packers

Wow. I can't even begin to describe this game. Normally, I hate ping pong matches, but this was just downright entertaining. Two of the best QBs in the league flingin it around, and Big Ben hit Mike Wallace for the big play with no time left on the clock to win. Now THAT's what December football in the NFL is supposed to be about.

3. Alabama basketball ain't there yet

Not yet. Kansas St was tougher, bigger, and just all around better. They scrapped and fought and hit their shots, and made us work harder for ours, etc. They outplayed the Tide in every aspect of the game. Just goes to show that Coach Grant and this team have a long way to go before we'll be back to the Big Dance.

4. Back to practice

First, congratulations for everyone, then it's back to reality for the Tide football team. The game is getting ever closer, and the players realize it's time to get back into gear. Mike Johnson and Greg McElroy both feel like everybody's hungry and ready to win a national championship. I'm feelin good about it right now.

5. Players beginning to file early

The first player that we've heard that has filed to see his NFL Draft status is Kareem Jackson, and, according to, he's projected to be a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Honestly, it might not be a bad time to go, y'know? If he can be drafted that high, and if we win a national title, going out on top would be the best way to do it. Of course, that'd put us in a hole in the secondary big time. 4 of our top 5 DBs would be leaving after this season. We'll see how it plays out. For now, let's hope they're all staying focused.

Comments: Do you know who am I?Do you want more interesting?
The NFL Draft is working with Boston University's Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy to study brain trauma in football. The league will ask former and current NFL players to donate their brains to science. Presumably, with fancy boxes to ship the brains, like they do for Super Bowl rings.
Page 2 loves this idea.
Scientists could study Mark Sanchez's brain to find out what he doesn't understand about the words "double-covered." They could study Tony Sparano's brain to find out what he sees in Pat White that no one else does. And they could look at Brett Favre's brain on the subject of waffling.
