    Big A Re: Latest Bama News 1/30/2013

    We’ve done this exercise for the past several years and it’s always interesting. Where did the players on the 2012 Associated Press All-SEC team rank as high school prospects by the ESPN recruiting folks? We’ll start with the offense and take a look at the defense later today. Notice that some of the most accomplished and decorated players on offense weren’t ESPN 150 members. That includes Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, as well as Barrett Jones, who won the Outland Trophy in 2011 and the Rimington Trophy in 2012. In fact, of the 12 first-team players on offense, eight were not ranked as ESPN 150 prospects.
    Here’s a look back:

    And the apology...

    After making headlines by referring to Alabama head coach Nick Saban as "Nicky Satan" in a public speech on Tuesday night, Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin apologized to the Crimson Tide coach with a personal phone call.

    Now that we’ve examined where the offensive players on the 2012 Associated Press All-SEC team ranked as high school recruits, we look next at the defensive players. Whereas only four of the 12 offensive players (counting the all-purpose player) on this season's All-SEC team were ESPN 150 prospects, nine of the 11 defensive players made the ESPN 150 cut as high school recruits. Eight of the 11 were ranked among the top 10 prospects nationally at their position.

    Mobile City Council President Reggie Copeland said both AJ McCarron and C.J. Mosley could be recognized with city keys next month or at some point during the spring. McCarron could not make it to Tuesday's City Council meeting because of a scheduling conflict with a class he is taking.

    Alabama Ethics Commission no longer allows free tickets and says buying tickets at face value from a university is acceptable. Some critics disagree.

    Athletic officials at Alabama and Auburn have repeatedly tried to distance themselves from the company. Both schools have sent cease and desist letters to S.W.A.T.S., saying they do not endorse the products and that the company should not contact their players.
