Yesterday saw the Crimson Tide practice as a complete team for the first time as the entire 105-man roster was on hand at the Thomas-Drew Practice facility. Coach Saban had this to say:

"The mental toughness was better today than it was yesterday. We have to continue to improve on that, so we can continue to improve as a team because a player is going to get better, or he is going to get worse - he is not going to stay the same."

Also, Tino Sunseri, the son of Alabama's linebacker coach, Sal Sunseri,  looks to be taking over the QB job at Pitt. The elder Sunseri was an All-American linebacker for the Panthers in the late 70s and early 80s.

House of Pain

You might have seen the online feature ESPN did last week called House of Pain. The idea was to document the 50 most painful losses in college football history. Alabama made five appearances on the list, sometime dealing out the pain, other times on the receiving end.
