    Long Snapper Gabe Pugh accepts Preferred Walk-on Offer to Bama

    Haven't seen anyone post, but Gabe Pugh, a long snapper from Northridge High School in Tuscaloosa, has committed to Bama. My sense he is a preferred walk-on. He's a big kid, about 6'5" and 275 and could have played guard in Division 1. Has been attending the Rubio camps for some time and is...

    Using Faculty/Staff Tickets

    I found some older threads about this, but I wondered if anyone has had trouble using faculty/staff tickets for home games. I bought 4 tickets to Ole Miss on StubHub and they are labeled for faculty/staff. Older threads said there was no ID check other obstacles to using them. Anyone heard...

    Todd McShay Says Kareem Jackson is 1st Round Talent

    On ESPN's recruiting coverage, Todd McShay was talking generally about Alabama's defense next year and what dropoff there might be. He actually pointed out that he didn't believe there would be a dropoff, except perhaps in the secondary where players were starting in new roles. Anyway, he made...

    How is Dominique Easley (Florida commit) projected so good at DT?

    Was just looking at Florida's recruiting class, which is admittedly sick with talent. But I noticed that one of their 5-stars is Dominique Easley, a DT out of New York. Easley is listed at only 258 lbs. His max bench press is 285. Is he expected to put on 30-40 lbs before playing? If so, how...

    Any Word on Kerry Murphy's Progress?

    Was looking through the Spring roster and came across Kerry Murphy. Had almost forgotten he made it to campus. With all of the talk about O-Line, was wondering if anyone knew anything about Kerry's progress and whether he would be able to contribute much this year.

    Road Sign: Star Jackson

    While I was driving from Biloxi to Jackson on Highway 49 the other morning for business, a highway sign along the way caught my eye. It read "Star Jackson." Star, Mississippi, where Faith Hill is from, is along the route to Jackson, so the sign was giving the mileage to each city. It's silly, I...

    Where did Jamontay Pilson sign?

    I was looking through the Alabama state ranking on Rivals to see how we ended up with in-state recruiting, and I noticed that Jamontay Pilson wasn't listed as signing anywhere. I thought he was headed to Auburn, but his Rivals page has nothing listed and neither does the Auburn commitment list...

    Tuberville is ESPNU's Resident On-Air Recruiting Expert

    While watching college basketball on ESPN, I saw several previews for ESPNU's coverage of national signing day. I almost fell out of my chair when the preview showed Tuberville as their on-air recruiting expert. How richly ironic is that? Also, for what it's worth, the short preview clip also...

    Question: How much does your wife know about football?

    I noticed on another thread that people were describing their wives' knowledge of football. I thought I would take a shot at creating some levels. Where does your wife fit in?

    Wish There Was a Maturity Metric for Recruits

    Like so many others who frequent the recruiting board and try to follow recruiting, I have come to wish more and more that there were some some sort of metric for a recruit's level of maturity and overall sophistication. For a decision so important to their future (and to rabid fans, of...

    'Just in the Nick of Time' - Song Now Available

    Some of you might remember a previous posting about a new song to debut on ESPN's coverage of the Bama-Georgia game. The song was 'Just in the Nick of Time' and is about the resurgence of Crimson Tide football. I have had several people ask me about it, so I wanted to let everyone know that the...

    Coincidences between 1992 and 2008

    Knowing there have lots of comparisons on this board between the 1992 NC season and this year, I won't rehash a lot of those. Obviously, the style of Bama's play is a lot like 1992 with the running game and time of possession. However, if you look at Bama going into the 2008 SECCG and the 1992...

    News Article: Alabama relishing the underdog role

    Good article by ESPN's Chris Low about Alabama relishing the role of underdog to Florida. http://myespn.go.com/blogs/sec/0-2-215/Alabama-relishing-the-underdog-role.html I found this little nugget interesting: Auburn senior center Jason Bosley, though, gives the nod to the Gators based on...
