Cecil Hurt's column this week chronicles the "off year" for the Tide:
The big question, of course, is will the enthusiasm, expectations and, hopefully, results created by the Saban hire spill over to the rest of Crimson Tide athletics?
Clemson - '02, '03, '13, '14
Colorado - '06, '10
Oklahoma State - '07, '09
Arizona State - '08, '09
Louisville - '11, '12
Oregon - '15, '16
Alchemist posted his worries about an LSU beatdown of our own beloved Tide in the coming season yesterday, and I'll be doing the same tonight, though I'm not so much worried about an end of the season matchup as one that's at the start of the season. I'll give you a hint: They have a billion bloggers.
And no, we don't play Michigan this year.
Tide Softball will host Tennessee Tech, Cal, and Florida State in one of 16 NCAA regionals this weekend (May 18-20). Tickets can be purchased at rolltide.com, the ticket window at Coleman Coliseum, or by calling 205-348-BAMA.
Hack has moved to Wordpress, and he's got a post detailing why he is an Alabama fan. One of these days I'll get around to writing one for myself.
If it's the offseason, then it's time to start ranking hottness. The Sporting Orange is there.
And speaking of hottness, $150 a year to walk around naked? Screw that, if any of you hot college girls want to hang out at my place I'll only be charging $5.
Group rates are available.
