Nothing surprising here but at least he's waiting to for information so he can make the right call..-bammer

If you ask Alabama fans what the most pressing concern for the 2013 season is, you're apt to get one of two answers: A retooled offensive line, or the thin cornerback depth.

The latter just took a serious blow as Sophomore CB Geno Smith was arrested early this morning for DUI. His mugshot could not be grimmer, as this young man comes to grips with the enormity of his mistake and the abominable pink walls of the Tuscaloosa County Detention Center (been there; not fun).

Smith is certain to miss playing time early in the season. His absence may not be particularly noticeable in the Virginia Tech season opener, despite the fact that Smith is an excellent tackler and excels in run support. However, that September 14 game against the manically-airborne Aggies in Kyle Field will get a whole lot tougher if Smith misses any appreciable playing time.
