Your daily dose of Crimson Tide related links and quotes

Streeter Lecka

Thanks you Fox Sports for sharing this gem with the rest of the world...From the combing his hands through his hair, to the inability to look people in the eye while talking, the guy absolutely nails the Saban impersonation. Solid work, internet. You've redeemed yourself after yesterday's Hobby Lobby discussions...

I guess #OffendedTwitter (aka #AuburnTwitter) was hurt by Landon's comments.

And speaking of Collins and the Alabama secondary, RBR's GOS had a few thoughts on the potential of the '14 DB's

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>I hope folks realize that, as a whole, there&#39;s a very, very good chance that the Alabama secondary is worse in 2014 than it was in 2013.</p>&mdash; Benjamin Litvin (@Ben_Litvin) <a href="">June 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Alabama had issues last year with deep throws along the boundaries. There&#39;s a good chance that&#39;ll still be an issue this year.</p>&mdash; Benjamin Litvin (@Ben_Litvin) <a href="">June 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

Gymnast Kim Jacob Wins Honda Cup as Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year - ROLLTIDE.COM - University of Alabama Official Athletic Site

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Alabama gymnast Kim Jacob just won the Honda Award as the collegiate woman athlete of the year</p>&mdash; Tommy Deas (@tommydeas) <a href="">July 1, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

"Kim Jacob deservedly was named the Collegiate Athlete of the Year and though diminutive in stature was gigantic in accomplishment as she raised the Honda Cup and became the 'best of the best' of the class of 2014, " stated Chris Voelz, Executive Director of the CWSA.

The winner of Alabama's ninth Honda Award, Jacob is the first Crimson Tide student-athlete to be a top-three finalist and the first to win the Honda Cup. "I am stunned," Jacob said after accepting the award on stage from Erik Wedin, manager, Corporate Community Relations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "I never thought this was possible, but if there is a lesson in this, it's to always dare to dream big."

Next Man Up: Jacob Coker - Team Speed Kills

Can you imagine, for a second, if Coker brings what Winston brought for the Seminoles -- and possibly even more Terrifying.

/Still waiting to see Coker in an Alabama uniform, throwing the ball to Alabama recievers who are also in Alabama uniforms before making any judgement call on his potential as an Alabama quarterback


Alabama's Kirby Smart says he's not antsy about becoming a head coach |

"I could finish my career being a defensive coordinator and say, 'Hey, he's Mickey Andrews,'" Smart said, referring to Bobby Bowden's longtime defensive coordinator at Florida State. "I'd be happy knowing that I had success doing it and I was the best I could be at my job.  "If the opportunity knocks, then so be it."

"I'm not sitting here saying I got to go today in order just to take one to take it," Smart said. "Every one of them says don't just jump at the first one. If you get the wrong one, it will be the last one."

It seems to me Smart is patiently waiting on either A. The Bama job to open up or B. The UGA job to open up. And neither one of those jobs will be available in the next few years, so that's good news for the Bama defense.

Police suspect alcohol use in accident that killed Philip Lutzenkirchen |

Davis failed to stop at a stop sign at a T-intersection, crossing an intersecting road and impacting a ditch at an unknown speed before traveling an additional 89 feet and striking another ditch, according to the report. The vehicle traveled further along the edge of a church driveway before hitting a fence, going airborne for 42 feet and overturning several times near Upper Big Springs and Lower Big Springs roads.

Goodness gracious. Another report says the car ended up on the roof of the church. Look, I don't want to trivialize the death of two young people by jumping on a soapbox, but please people, wear your seat belts and never drink and drive.
