    Game Thread: Braves vs Benedict Freddie (Dodgers)

    Agreed. The agent works at the player's behest. If Freddie wanted to stay in ATL he would've told his agent to not make the 6th year a make-or-break issue.

    News Article: Nate Oats on Alabama Roster: Article dated 22 Jun 2022

    It's very weird watching basically 2/3rds of a roster turnover from one year to the next, but I suppose that's the new normal in CBB. A lack of depth down low and a lack of size at guard seemed to be major problems for last year's team. It looks like the 2023 roster will be taller overall (4...

    Arch Manning, Texas, and NILs

    Would the commitment to TX of a QB sensation with identical credentials named Arch Johnson blow up sports media the same way? No pressure, Sark......

    Arch Manning, Texas, and NILs

    On to something here I think. At Bama, he'd compete against Milroe, Simpson, and Holstein. He'll probably start right away at TX as far as I can tell. It was an interesting thought, but I could never really imagine a Manning at Bama. Just glad the drama's over such as it was.

    The old man stood there, quivering with fury, stammering as he tried to come up with a real crusher. All he got out was NADAFINGAH!!!!

    BREAKING Shooting at St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Vestavia Hills

    2 things that come to mind.... That whole "good guy with a gun" myth the NRA and GOP drag out for all these type events just keeps getting flimsier - Uvalde had a bunch of useless guys with guns, and in this situation there was a good guy with a chair. The fact that GOP politicians have...

    WWE Chairman Vince McMahon found with multiple million dollar NDAs to cover up inappropriate behavior

    Apparently his daughter is coming back as acting CEO, and Vince is going to address this situation as his "Mr. McMahon" character on TV tonight. Sounds like a really good idea.....

    Tennessee has an obsession with throwing mustard on the field

    Schadenfreude - shah'-den-froi-duh n the pleasure experienced while watching a trash Tennessee team and their trash coach get eliminated in a regional on their home field despite a #1 ranking. Honestly, I'd root for the University of Tehran Fightin' Mullahs over those orange pukestains.

    Former All American DL Robert Stewart has passed

    This was from my undergrad days at Bama - really sad to see how many of the guys from those teams that've passed away far too young - Stewart, DT, Kevin Turner, McCants.

    Dana Duckworth (Gymnastics HC) Steps Down

    This all seems to have happened rather quickly, and the new coach's resume seems a little thin for a program the magnitude of Alabama's. Is this typical of gymnastics? If UCLA did want Priess-Johnston despite no prior head coaching experience and Auburn is gnashing their teeth over Bama...

    Vienna, like Paris, only better.

    As a classical musician, I'm a bit embarrassed to say I haven't yet visited Vienna, where Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert and others lived and worked, but it's certainly on my bucket list. I was lucky enough to play in a month-long music festival in Spoleto, Italy for a couple of summers and...

    Tuscaloosa Regional

    Question for those who follow this more closely than me: how much of this is on Murphy? I've read in various places that he's stubbornly clinging to an outdated approach to the game, lacks in-game situational awareness, rides single pitchers too much and refuses to hire a hitting coach. Fouts...

    Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix recap

    Starting positions: Pole: Leclerc P2: Verstappen P3: Sainz Final result: P1: Verstappen P2: My guy Perez P3: Russell Definitely an interesting race, with more overtaking than was expected from the Barcelona track. Observations: 1. Another tough week for Ferrari. Leclerc overcame a spin in...

    Coach Saban goes off on programs buying players (A&M, Jackson State, and Miami mentioned)

    Sankey about to put Bama and 8&4 (yes that's now official) back to back at Media Days..... Aside from a few bizarre school choices, suddenly inflated recruiting classes, and hysterically defensive coaches, we have yet to see the full impact of unregulated NIL, especially the unintended...

    Coach Saban goes off on programs buying players (A&M, Jackson State, and Miami mentioned)

    That's exactly the gif I had in mind when I posted earlier. Just too lazy to pull it up. Thanks!:LOL:

    Coach Saban goes off on programs buying players (A&M, Jackson State, and Miami mentioned)

    I think the concerns over the lack of big-money types in the state of Alabama may be overblown. I'm guessing that there are some seriously wealthy Bama alums/fans outside the state's borders, and Saban certainly has a national brand that would attract big $ if NIL continues in this fashion. As...

    Coach Saban goes off on programs buying players (A&M, Jackson State, and Miami mentioned)

    Trying to decide which thing works better to describe Jimbo/Prime: Shakespeare's "Methinks he doth protest too much" or Claude Rains being "shocked, SHOCKED" in Casablanca. Jimbo is a doofus who will be completely unable to control the Chernobyl-like toxicity of his locker room when either A...
