Tuesday takedown.
1. Finebaum tells us who else Saban should have thanked

Alabama fans should be thanking all sorts of people. Rich Rod, Tim Tebow, etc. Read the article here. There's a lot to be said for this because if Tebow does come to Alabama, Shula is still here, going 9-3 every year with no sniff of a championship. Take a look at Michigan and imagine how badly he would have done here at Alabama, where the defenses play MUCH faster than they do in the Big 10. There's just a ton of things to look back at, and, in the end, all has worked out to perfection.

2. Rolo wins the Butkus Award

It hasn't been "officially" announced yet, but Dick Butkus is in Tuscaloosa, which would only mean that Rolo has won the award. That's BIG news.

3. The University has canceled all classes from Jan 6th - Jan 8th

At Alabama we don't just play football. We live it. Well, if you wanted proof, how about an entire school canceling classes for 3 days for a game. I don't know that I've EVER seen this happen. I'm sure the national media will be all over this, probably negatively (because they hate us, of course), but I think it's a genious move by the University. This is the biggest thing that's happened to the state in 17 years.

4. Heisman Trophy talk

The two most well known Heisman Trophy sites (HeismanPundit.com and StiffArmTrophy.com) both currently have Mark Ingram as the leader at this point after doing a bunch of updates and trying to see how many people are voting for certain individuals. At this point, it appears that it's down to Toby Gerhart and Mark Ingram. I'll take that matchup.

5. Sports Illustrated again

Anybody down for one more Sports Illustrated cover? I'd like to get one more for the week after Jan 7th...
