    JW Back in Oz

    Jesse arrived back in Australia today with plenty of fanfare. Media all over him which is huge for a country not that into it. Here is a story from our local tv news. http://wwos.ninemsn.com.au/video.aspx?videoid=7d176d72-6ec5-4513-9119-23d2404b548c

    Will he stay over there for the draft or come back to America?

    Thanks for posting. We're gonna miss Jesse. He became a fan favorite almost immediately. It was good to see him mature and get better and better over the 2 years we had him. Best of luck to him in the next level. Bama nation will be following his progress.

    I didn't realize that he was the first true Australian to play college football in the United States. That's pretty cool. Tell me our recruiting base hasn't expanded just a bit

    Jesse has been one of my favs from the first time I heard him talking about sweet tea and bbq. I sure will miss him next year and wish him the best.

    Did he say he "tried to avoid eating crap which in America is kinda hard to do."?

    Or did he say crab?

    He never seemed to mind City Cafe when I saw him there.

    If he did, he was right.

    "A long way," he said after being asked how far the Crimson Tide had come since Coach Nick Saban arrived three years ago. "I guess you could say it's the distance from Shreveport to Pasadena."
