Apparently Alabama Isn't Just a Football School

Golf World's Ryan Herrington has named Alabama's Jay Seawell the Midseason Coach of the Year:

By his own admission, the 40-year-old doesn't have a superstar in his lineup, but with five of the six players who've teed it up for his team this fall sporting scoring averages of 72.17 or lower, he does have the deepest team in college golf. Thus explains the Crimson Tide's three victories in their first four starts and their first appearance at the top of the Golf World Coaches' Poll. After spending five years convincing anyone who would listen that Alabama could be a contender both in the SEC and nationally, he has developed a program that is a legitimate threat to win the NCAA title.
