    Cecil's take and Tommy Deas' take...

    So it makes sense that the team is loose as well.

    A loose team is only dangerous as long as they think they're in the game. So let's hope we come out strong and physical.

    RTR!!!
    So ND is loose? So all the pressure is on Bama?!

    Me too although you risk having you head taken off by saying anything abou Cecil, some of his stuff don't seem like from a home town beat writer. Well I asked for it.

    Cecil is much, much more than a hometown beat writer and he's respected widely on the national stage. And he doesn't sugar coat. When he started to hint at what the Dubose sanctions were going to be, he was crucified by a lot of Bama folks...

    I liked both pieces and I like Cecil lots.

    I saw the interviews yesterday. Coach looked loose. Barrett Jones looked real loose. I would not have called McCarron tight, more business-like. I feel very good about the team's mindset.

    What Earle said. Like him or not, Cecil knows the pulse of Bama athletics better than anyone else in the media. He has deservedly earned the trust from the inside.

    Every time I read the self-serving pap that comes from the auburn beat writers on al.com it makes me grateful that we've got somebody like Cecil who's not afraid to point a spotlight on his own team when needed.

    Fortunate to know Tommy D. He is really a nice guy and knows his stuff.

    Cecil, of course, is simply the best.
