Iron Bowl Game Day Open Thread

Game day has finally come and kick-off in the Iron Bowl is only hours away. While we wait, chime in here with all of your game day thoughts and comments. Any news that breaks between now and then will also be posted here.

The game thread will be posted at 1:15 this afternoon.

Update: The bad news has seemingly been confirmed regarding Barrett Jones. He is dressed out and going through pre-game warm-ups, but is doing so with the third-team unit. Do not expect him to play today. Anthony Steen is working with the ones, so expect him to get the start, but if he struggles early expect to see Alfred McCullough. I imagine Steen will be on a short leash this afternoon.

Update II: Some good news on the weather front. According to Chase Goodbread, despite all of the rain the past 24 hours, the turf at Bryant-Denny is holding up well and the track seems dry.

Update III: Student section throwing out fake bills with Cam Newton's mugshot on them. Whoever orchestrated that one on a widespread basis deserves a special honor at graduation.
