Getting close to the weekend...
I'm so ready for Christmas to get here. I've got all my shopping done. Now I'm just waiting.

I even bought myself a present. UFC Undisputed for PS3. Diggit. Should be in the mail soon. Haha.

1. Bama basketball handles Samford

Mr. Green led Bama to a 60-45 win over Samford last night in a game that felt more like a scrimmage than a real game. Everyone mainly worked on fundamentals and shooting the ball well. It worked perfectly. Lots of minutes for everyone. Good game to help build up to Saturday's game in Mobile against Kansas St.

2. Irvin takes Memphis running backs job

Sedrick Irvin, an assistant running backs coach at UA who joined Saban's staff after last season, has taken the position of Running Backs coach at the University of Memphis. Sedrick was one of those that Mark Ingram thanked in his Heisman speech. We're happy for him to get this opportunity. Looks like Larry Porter is going after winners for his staff. Read more here.

3. Chris Henry from the Bengals has died

Sad day in the NFL. Chris Henry, from Cincinnati, has died after a domestic disturbance yesterday. Apparently his wife raced off in a pick-up truck, but he had jumped in the back of the truck. When the incident escalated, he somehow fell out of the back of the truck, suffering serious injuries which ultimately led to his death this morning. Sucks.

4. Conference re-alignments?

The Big 10 wants to add a 12th member. Candidates are currently a few teams from the Big East or the Big 12. Iowa St is a good fit, but so are Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Cincinnati. If I had to wager, I'd bet on Louisville, because the Big 10 would like to move into the Kentucky market that the SEC has had a hold on for a while. If they were to bring in the others, exactly what would be the point. You're looking to expand your market, right? It'd be like if the SEC brought in Memphis. They've already got a stranglehold on the market. It doesn't make any sense. I'm guessing they take Louisville, and then the Big East take Memphis. Just a guess.

5. 2010 preseason #1

We're officially the early bird preseason #1 at I can dig this. Looking at what we have coming back, it's going to be a fun year. Definitely.
