Meeting reporters at the Tuesday Senior Bowl practice, Alabama coach Nick Saban said he plans to meet with Anderson to discuss the situation. "We'll get all the information from him and decide what to do," Saban said.
We covered this yesterday ad nausea. It's actually fairly minor stuff, and I wouldn't expect 3rd degree DV/criminal mischief to stick to either party, to be honest. That said, you have to think the internal discipline for being a knucklehead will be far worse than whatever plea Anderson cops to.
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Tuesday at Senior Bowl practice that he couldn't say with certainty that Kiffin would return to his staff next season, but he's “hopeful that will continue.”
I still don't see it happening. Kiffin burned some bridges on his way out of Oakland, and, frankly, it's going to probably take more than one great (and mercifully uncontroversial) year as Alabama's OC before he becomes a hot commodity again. That said, if the 49ers actually offer him the job, hard to imagine Coach Kiffin staying at the collegiate level: this is a West Coast guy.
“These guys are tough. Between last year (going 1-3 in 4 matchups) and football season, we’ll definitely be playing with a chip on our shoulder”, says junior Mike Ahearn.
Ole Miss beat the Frozen Tide like a timpani last season. This is a huge two-game series at the Pelham Civic Complex, and there is little love lost between the two schools. Worth your five bucks if you're in the Birmingham area.
The Alabama gymnastics team is seventh in the latest rankings as they prepare to take on No. 1 Florida this Friday in Coleman Coliseum starting at 6:30 p.m.
Florida is an absolute machine (again.) The Tide overcame a shaky start to beat Arizona, and had a shaky finish doom them in Arkansas. This matchup will tell us a lot about the state of the program. The meet is Saturday, and there are still tickets available. It's also Military Appreciation Night in Coleman. Past and present military folks get in free with their ID, and admission for their family and guests is just $3. Use the promo code "GYMMIL."

Crimson Tide to be featured in ten nationally-televised events.
Some of you live for the four magical words "pitchers and catchers report;" it's almost that time again.
Former Alabama head coach and Hall of Famer Charles Martin C.M. Newton is one of 14 men who have been selected for the 2015 Allstate® Southeastern Conference Basketball Legends...While he was with the Tide, Newton led Alabama to three straight SEC Titles (1974-76) and seven postseason appearances, which included two NCAA Tournament berths, a sweet-16 appearance in 1976, and five NIT berths.
A little love for an Alabama legend. Well deserved, Coach Newton. Well deserved.
