Tide Basketball needed another last second basket from the injured Ronald Steele to win at home.

On the recruiting front, Coach Saban managed to haul in a top ten class (as rated by Rivals, 19 by Scout), despite the efforts of the media to tell you he's already a failure, Alabama has been relegated to the dustbin of history and that it uses local nursing homes to store crack and guns, the sales of which fund all those scholarships he's been handing out. Okay, I made the crack and guns part up, but I wouldn't put it past them.
The Birmingham News has an article up about new Tide signee Marquis Maze:
"Marquis is, without a doubt, hands-down the best athlete I've ever coached," Tarrant's Donnie Rogers said. ``I don't know a single football player who can do the things he can do."
I'm sure everyone reading this is as excited as I am about seeing him in Crimson and White.

The M Zone would probably frustrate the Bama message board members who live and die by the capricious whim of 18 year olds.
I'm glad Robert Elliot has his priorites straight when it comes to choosing a college.
