I'm sure you've all noticed that kleph has been almost single-handedly running things around here the last week or so, but I promise we have a good excuse, namely trying to wrap up the 2010 edition of Yea Alabama (which is already available for pre-order).  Tom Luginbill was kind enough to answer some questions for us again this year and he went pretty in depth in our phone interview on some of the returning players and early enrollees.  I wish I could post the whole thing here because it was seriously good stuff, but I am going to post this one blurb that I'm sure you'll all appreciate:

I would be really surprised if maybe running back Eddie Lacy doesn’t have a little bit more of a prominent role.  I know there’s been so much discussion about how talented Alabama is, not only with Mark Ingram but also Trent Richardson who many people feel may be an actual better player overall than Ingram is.  Then you add Eddie Lacy into the mix and I think that you are looking at a three-pronged effect and if he can stay healthy I think you are going to see him take some turns and reps and he really stood out to me as being a potential guy to make the transition.
