Disease Threatens All

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Flu is rampant among my favorite footballers! But never fear, Cuba Gooding Jr, Dustin Hoffman and Kevin Spacey are on the scene. It’s suspected that the players were infected by big poorly photoshopped sticks of wood in the middle of the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility. One thing that scares me is this quote from Nick […]

In the year 2000

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

While I remain cautiously optimistic about Alabama’s football hopes in 2009, and the teams future and talent in general, I can’t help but think about similarities with the YEAR 2000 squad. Alabama was coming off a memorable campaign in 1999 featuring Shaun Alexander, Freddie Milons and Chris Samuels where the team recovered from a heartbreaking […]

Happy Trails to you, Dan

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

I was at the Waysider Sunday, basking in buttery bacon and biscuit and grits glory, while seated next to Daniel Mo0re’s “The Interception“. I was struck by the detail Moore dedicates to Antonio Langham’s trail of belly hair, if only 283 lb defensive tackle James Gregory would have intercepted that pass. Check out the Tim […]

An Alabama Bud Light Football Can???!

Friday, August 21st, 2009

Bama Sports Report is speculating that there may be some Crimson Colored Bud Light cans in our future. Would the world not explode?! Dare I say the intruduction of an Alabama Bud Light can could trigger the level of destruction that the loonies feared that an operating Large Hadron Collider would generate? I suspect that […]

Depth Chart = Depth Charge

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Nick Saban is earning his Nicktator pseudonum this week. Despite just about every practice report I see that speculates on the depth chart couches it in between “organizational units”, “practice groupings” and a million other phrases to communicate the provisional nature of the guestimation. We can trust speculation by people with media access to get […]

Auburn is happy about getting a reality show, isn’t the point of reality shows to humiliate most of the participants? Rivals has their Alabama season preview up. EDSBS has a noted that Va Tech running back Ryan Williams does not like to listen to his coach. This guy has a rad bike.

All that hard work and practice has paid off

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Alabama is Now number 5 in the coaches poll Lets make sure these kids KNOW, this is a reward for hard work and determination during practice yesterday (speaking of, check out the awesome run down by bama sports report). Remember, this time last year, the Tide was not in the top 25 in the hallowed […]

Looking Back: Recruiting the Tide Upperclassmen

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

While the past few recruiting classes have been talented and well-regarded, many of the contributors on the current Crimson Tide squad were wooed to Tuscaloosa by a dapper young ex-QB that, while by no means failing, did not exactly set the college prospect word aflame. We’ll take a few minutes and look at the recruiting […]
