The Tide currently has three SEC Player of the Week honorees on campus. Charlotte Morgan is the SEC Softball Freshman of the Week (for the third time this season, and the second week in a row, no less) while Jake Smith is the SEC Freshman Baseball Player of the Week. Further, senior tennis player Joseph Jung is the SEC Tennis Player of the Week, the first such honor to go to a member of the Tennis Team this season. Congratulations to all three.

They briefly return to Tuscaloosa for a double-header against Arkansas this afternoon before heading to Baton Rouge to face No. 9 LSU on Friday.

Dude, Winnie Cooper grew up hott!
And you thought getting drunk while watching NASCAR was strictly a southern thing.
