Easy question: Who would you save?

Baseball Comeback against No. 1 Vanderbilt Comes Up Short

In its final regular season series, the Alabama Crimson Tide suffered a 7-6 Southeastern Conference loss to the top-ranked Vanderbilt Commodores, from Hawkins Field on Thursday night. With the loss, the Tide falls to 31-23 overall and 13-14 in SEC play. The Commodores improve to 47-6, and 25-2 in conference action.

The Tide scored four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning, thanks to a grand slam by Kenny Roberts off Commodores closer Brian Miller. Alabama loaded the bases off reliever Adam Ravenelle, on walks by Brett Booth and Andrew Miller and a single by Chance Vincent. After a pitching change, Roberts hit the first pitch he saw from Miller over the 35-foot wall in left field to get the Tide within one. That’s where the rally stalled, as Miller retired the next two hitters to record his 14th save of the season.

You hate coming up short against the #1 team in the country but you have to hand it the boys, they never gave up.

On a side note, some LSU fan was trolling the RBR twitter feed last night and he said (attempting to talk trash) AND I QUOTE, "BTW, what seed is 'Bama in the SEC baseball tourney." LULZ. When you are regulated to talking trash about seeds in the SEC BASEBALL tourney, you have now entered the realm of TET.

Welcome to the 7th level of hell, my corndog friend.

Being called the devil by a former aide was 'terribly disappointing,' Nick Saban says |

It really is a little terribly disappointing," he said Thursday in response to comments made by Florida offensive line coach Tim Davis. Saban spoke to members of the news media before a Crimson Caravan stop at Turner Field. "I try to do right by the people that work for me," he said. "It’s a tough, demanding job. And at the same time, if anybody had an issue or problem with me, I would want them to just tell me."

Saban is taking the high road here but something tells me working for Nick Saban is no walk in the park. Perhaps he's not Satanesque but I would think he is very demanding and not every one is built to work for him. Honestly, he reminds me a lot of my father, and though I love my dad to death, there is no way I would ever work for him. Different strokes for different folks.

That said, referring to someone as Satan should come with some type of fine or suspension. You just don't go around saying things like that about fellow colleagues and walk away unscathed. But of course, this is his head coach...So maybe he meant Muschamp was Satan?
