Awww yeah. It's been a good few weeks in Bama land. It feels like I'm in a dream or something.
1. Mark Ingram was on the Dan Patrick Show
Good job, Mark. Here's the link to the interview. He's such a well-spoken genuine young man. It's refreshing to have a kid like him representing the University.
2. Turner Gill is in at Kansas
I can't believe I haven't talked about this yet. Does Turner Gill turn Kansas back around into competing for Big 12 titles? Somehow, I doubt it. I honestly think that Mangino is a better x's and o's coach, but I think Gill will get the players that Mangino couldn't get. Regardless, it'll definitely be interesting to watch. I think he'll have them at 6-6 or 7-5 every year with a bowl game, but nothing too big.
Georgia can't find one to save their lives, or so it seems. From what I'm hearing, they've talked to a LOT of guys, and none of them have been really interested. Bud Foster is the only official that I've heard, but I've also heard Kirby Smart, Tyrone Nix, and Vic Koenning, and none of them are even the slightest bit intrigued. Word is that nobody wants to jump on board a sinking ship, which is pretty much what Georgia is viewed as right now.
5. Alabama led the country with 6 first team AP All-Americans
Wow. That's a crazy number, right? 6 first teamers. Incredible accomplishment. Mark Ingram was a unanimous selection. Also on the first team were Mike Johnson, Leigh Tiffin, Rolo McClain, Terrence Cody, and Javier Arenas. Mark Barron earned third-team. Diggit.
