Way to go Coach Saban and staff!

Two years in a row, Coach Saban and his incredible staff have put together a # 1 recruiting class according to Rivals. I know that the ranking of the recruiting class and the number of stars that a player has beside his name don't always translate into success on the field, but I do feel quite confident that the athletic staff at UA have a pretty good read on the kids that they go after. It's going to be exciting to see who from this class ends up being the star(s). Will it be Dre, Tana, DJ, Trent, or some other player? I guess we will find out come September. Oh, sure. We'll hear some stuff over the summer and in fall camp about how so-and-so is doing, but we won't really know until they take the field in the fall.

It is a great time to be a Bama fan. For those of us who remember the "glory days" of Alabama football, it's almost like we can see the re-emergence of those days. Some people like (love??) to hate Alabama because we do love our tradition so much, and we love to talk about it. It isn't so much that we long for Coach Bryant to "return from the dead" as so many auburn fans LOVE to say. As a matter of fact, I hear more auburn fans talking about Coach Bryant than I do Bama fans. Yeah, we love our houndstooth, and yeah, Coach Bryant made it famous at Alabama. Just because we wear hats or scarves or anything else doesn't mean we want to resurrect the man.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I love college football. I love Alabama football. It's going to be a long off season! Until September...

Girl Steve and I have been so frustated...yesterday was signing day, well our local channel (Columbus, MS) told NOTHING of Alabama. All they were yacking about was Ms State, Ole Miss, Sounthern Miss and even Auburn, no mention of Alabama that I heard. Ughhhh!

I don't know where you got the love of football, but I suspect it was from my Dad. He loved sports, period. As for the love of Bama - could the fact that I thought I would deliver you early the day Bama played Tennessee in 1966? Or could it be the fourteen months we lived in T'town? Whatever, I love to see you love Bama.

I love my Crimson Tide!

I really, REALLY mean this...
