    Scripting the Bama-MSU Game

    I visited an MSU Board a couple of days ago and as you might imagine, the vast majority of those posting predicted a Sparty victory. A good many others gave detailed descriptions of how said upset would take place. Most narratives went along the lines of a fierce defensive struggle had both...

    Don't Forget our Special Teams Play

    The one area that really scared me going into yesterday's game was special teams. It was easily the best game the group has played this year. Punting and kicking was spot-on. Leigh had at least two touch backs that I recall. Holliday was held in check and LSU had poor field position for much of...

    Official Oliver Purnell Thread

    Its late to be introducing a name, but what is not to like about Oliver Purnell? His teams are tough, disciplined, and athletic. It is obvious to me that he can recruit, coach, and build (rebuild) a program. His kids put quite a beating on us last year. Kevin Scarbinsky broached his name in a...

    Should Senario Hillman be our point guard?

    In last night's game, our best stretches were when Senario Hillman was on the floor and controlling the ball. He was explosive to the basket, distributed very well to our big men, and was arguably the best athlete on the floor for either team. Considering that the great Ronald Steele is still...

    MSU - The SEC West's Strongest Program

    As much as many of us hate to admit it, Rick Stansbury puts the best coached, most disciplined group on the floor year in, year out in the SEC West. I think it is safe to say, as Jess did in his analysis, that MSU has certainly supplanted us and that there is more than a little work for us to...

    CMG's reputation as a recruiter

    As the criticism of Coach Mark seems to be increasing, his defenders point to his strength as a recruiter. Has this really been the case? I would argue otherwise. IMHO, his two best recruits have been Mo Williams and Ron Steele. Otherwise we have had good but not great players that with few...

    Trick or Treating and Generations of Tide fans

    My brother, who lives in Birmingham, sent me this note that he received from a friend of his: "So, I am doing the trick-or-treat thing in Crestline last night, and I'm sitting outside Hugh Thomas' house with Hugh, whose grandfather was the late, great Frank Thomas. This kid, who is maybe...

    What has this remarkable game told us about this team - good and bad

    This was such a great win for this team and for a fan base that has come to expect the sky to fall in at any moment. What does the 3rd victory over a much better than advertised and valiant team from Arkansas tell us about this team: * They are in much better shape. * They are not giving up on...

    Can we all make it to the Fall?

    I was at the hardware store yesterday evening and while I was meandering through the Garden section, I spotted a guy about my age sporting a red cap with an unmistakable Alabama "A" above the bill. I make a point these days to greet anyone I come across with Bama loyalties. It might be my...
