Mid-week rockin...
Dimeday was yesterday. Had a good practice. We always seem to do things well on the day when we remember Dimebag Darrell. Word.

1. NCAA looking into Tennessee recruiting tactics

Lane. C'mon man. Read the damn rule book. The New York Times is reporting about the NCAA looking into your program for your use of hostesses. It doesn't go into a LOT of detail, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn some that some of the things that were going on were INCREDIBLY inappropriate. Does this bring up some memories of Colorado's recruiting tactics back a few years ago? Yikes.

2. Charlie Strong is Louisville's new coach

I'm curious how this is going to play out. The Big East is a big time offensive league. Will Strong's defenses live up to the billing and be able to stop the Cincis and West Virginias? This is a very interesting hire. Read more here.

3. Coaches leaving Tennessee...

Tennessee has already lost their running backs coach to Florida State and their wide receivers coach to LSU. Now I'm hearing they're losing Lance Thompson to Louisville. There will be others, from what I understand. This is a HUGE deal. If this goes through, they will have lost their recruiting connections to Florida, Louisiana, and the Mobile area all in a matter of days. We'll have to see what happens with this one. This could be big.

4. So Notre Dame has picked Brian Kelly...

I've heard some not-so-good things about Brian Kelly. I'd be a lil hesitant to make him my coach. Alas, ND didn't feel that way. Read more here.

5. Awards are everywhere...

I'll post a full list soon, but the Tide is racking up the awards this offseason. Coach Saban won the Amos Alonzo Stag award for best coach, Kirby Smart won the Frank Broyles award, McClain got the Butkus award, we had 10 players on the AP All-SEC team, we had the AP SEC Coach of the year and the Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year. And they keep coming in. Ingram may very well win the Heisman, and there's a ton of other awards coming up too. What a fun year. And it's not even close to being over yet.
