Tuesday Evening Links and Such

New, comments

Just a few quick hits for your late evening perusal:

Assistant Basketball Coach Kobie Baker was taken to the hospital after a car accident last night. He's fine and expected to make a full recovery, but will likely miss the Ole Miss game.

Richard Hendrix, however, will not:

Hendrix, Alabama's leading scorer and rebounder, missed last Saturday's game at Kentucky with a stomach virus. He returned to practice on Monday and a day later said he was "feeling good"

The Tide (13-11, 2-7) has lost seven of its last nine games, including a 62-52 defeat at Kentucky without Hendrix. The Rebels (17-5, 3-5) have lost four of their last five SEC games.

Hendrix's return comes in time for a matchup with the Rebels' Curtis, who is averaging 15.4 points and 9.2 rebounds. Curtis is the league's No. 2 rebounder.

Joe Kines to Texas A&M?

The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that former Alabama defensive coordinator Joe Kines is the top candidate to be the DC at Texas A&M under new DC Mike Sherman.

Sherman lost his first DC, Reggie Herring, to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. And former Notre Dame coach Bob Davie turned down a job offer to replace Herring.

If you'll take a look to your right and down a ways in the links section, you'll see a few new additions: The Red Elephants, Tipsy Tiders, Third Satuday in Blogtober (which isn't new and I'm sure you're all reading anyway and whom I thought we had linked a long time ago but, oopsie), Drunken Omelette, and DBH Dance Party. As always, if you start up a Bama blog, e-mail us at rollbamaroll -at- so we can link you.

Finally, just in case any of our readers are the forgetful husband/boyfriend type, are also in (or relatively close to) Birmingham, and need to come up with something quick to do for Valentine's Day to keep from getting in trouble:
