One more day...
Found this over at TideSports. Very interesting, to say the least.

His son's already on the staff, and he and Saban are good friends. Is it possible that, if we lose a defensive assistant, we've already got the replacement lined up?

1. Ducks handle Beavers.

Oregon had just as clutch a drive as we did because you just knew that, if they had given Oregon St the ball back at the end of the game, they were going to score. It just had that kind of feel. Chip Kelly went for it at least twice (that I remember) on 4th down on that drive, and picked them up. They kept the ball for the last 4 minutes of the game, never giving Mike Riley's team another shot to score. Great ballgame, and one helluva coaching matchup. That game's gonna be some kinda fun to watch for a looong time.

2. Pacquiao vs Mayweather looks like a go

AP reports are saying the fight's a go. I can diggit. These two guys are incredible fighters. I actually enjoy watching boxing when they fight because they do it right. They actually know what they're trying to accomplish when they get in the ring, unlike about 90% of the boxers out there today. So March 13th is the date. Lets see if UFC tries to do a pay-per-view that night. They've been known to do things like that. In this case, I think boxing would win out.

3. Florida is going through the "Year of the Weird"

I'll admit. Dodd's got a good story here. It has been an incredibly odd season for Florida. I'm not sure if a lot of the stuff would have gotten as much spin in other places if it had been a worse football team without a rockstar at QB, but it's definitely been crazy. So, are the distractions too much for this team to overcome on Saturday? I guess we'll have to wait and find out. They've definitely responded well to adversity.

4. Loss of Hightower is just as big as Dunlap.

Andy Staples, over at, has a good article about how much better this game would be if Bama and Florida had one more superstar each.

Hightower would be the guy to spy Tim Tebow, according to this. I don't know if that role doesn't go to Rolando McClain or Nico Johnson right now, but it's definitely an interesting read.

5. Bama places 4 on AFCA All-American team...again.

Last year we had 4, and this year we had 4. That makes us just the 3rd team (along with Notre Dame and USC) in history to have 4 players on an All-American team twice. Pretty incredible. Read the article here.

The line is still sitting at 5.5 and 6 in most places. Think it'll move any before kickoff?
