Traffic

A reminder, parking is still somewhat dicey on campus, and there is still non-existent construction on 15th Street that is gumming up things by the midtown shopping center. There is also construction on 20/59 (both directions) near the Coaling exit that bottlenecks things tremendously. I-20/59 from Meridian has minimal construction, all on the Mississippi side. Highway 82 is mainly clear, save the ever-present a**hole cops in Bibb County, and wouldn't you know it, there just happens to be construction on 82 in Bibb County, just east of the 20/25 connector, which means they will be out. US 43 is clear in both directions, as is US 69.

If you take a 4-wheeler through a goat track in Walker County, I can't help you.

Television

For now, Alabama's Friday tilt vs. Fairfield is scheduled to be televised on the SEC Network at 3 p.m. Central. There is no live televised coverage scheduled for Saturday. Sunday, at 12:00 Central, the SEC Network will broadcast one of the regional finals, but there is no word on whom precisely. With Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Auburn and Missouri also hosting regionals, it could be one of six teams. The SEC Network +, the companion streaming service, will carry all games not televised on the flagship.
