Big Man, Big News for Bama Basketball

2

Garrett becomes the fourth signee in a recruiting class that was already ranked as high as No. 21 in the nation. He joins Justin Coleman (Birmingham, Ala./Wenonah HS), Devin Mitchell (Suwanee, Ga./Collins Hills HS) and Riley Norris (Albertville, Ala./Albertville HS) as the newest members of the squad.

Jacob Coker Prepares for 'Bama

3

"He flicks his wrist, delivering a perfect spiral to David Kelly, a shifty receiver from nearby South Alabama. The ball cuts through the wind and rain like a sail, crashing into Kelly's hands as a crack of thunder echoes in the distance. "He's not pretty good," Kelly says. "He's good. You can tell the difference." The difference, Alabama hopes, will bridge the gap from McCarron and provide another national championship. The difference, Coker hopes, is far less ostentatious: let it be enough to win him the job in the first place. He'll take it from there."

From ESPN Oh my. This article was so good it deserved its own fanshot (yes, these still exist). Anyways, as others have already pointed out in today's JP, if this article isn't just fluff, we are all in for a treat come August. Sims seems to have the starting job locked down for Spring but it really seems like Coker is the heir apparent.

Bag Men and Bought Men

451

I witnessed cash handed to an active SEC football player -- it's just cash changing hands. When things are done correctly, there's no proof more substantial than one man's word over another. This piece isn't going to blow up any school, from a rules violation perspective, as no player names, bag man names, or school names are involved, but the piece does serve as a great peek behind the curtain for those that wonder about the purity of the sport.

First Barner Blab?

Tre Mason, quoted in the Montgomery Advertiser Nov 4: "Our key is our mind-set. We're going to pound it down their throat and you have got to try to stop it, and if you don't, you got to like it". Way to go Tre! (However, you may want to check with the coach before saying anything else)

Anyone remember decision to convert to Script A?

Does anyone remember the decision for Alabama to switch to the script A in the early 90s? I was wondering the thought process, public discourse involved. Thanks

Moussa Gueye to Transfer

University of Alabama center Moussa Gueye is planning to transfer and play his final season elsewhere. The 7-foot center attended the UA basketball banquet on Tuesday night, where he was introduced as an "academic senior." Gueye is on track to graduate and could be immediately eligible next season.

"The thing I love the most is their academics. They have it set up to get your degree in three years. Half of the team in the bowl game had their degree already. It's a championship team with a lot of those guys having their degree. It's saying something."

New Tide commit Eddie Jackson. Don't be shy sharing this with all those that dismiss the commitment to education for the team.
