NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Alabama Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Friday, everyone. We opened with a singing pupper yesterday, how about some drunk elephants to take you into the weekend?

Animals are awesome.

In football news, Tua Tagovailoa continues to progress. Thanks to Christopher Walsh, we have video of him throwing it around.

Folks, he broke his hip four months ago. This is incredible.

Alabama’s players are basically on their own right now as far as staying in shape, though they have had some guidance.

“We have tried to provide support where appropriate with our student-athletes with the questions they have,” Byrne said. “They can call in and talk to our strength and conditioning coaches. They can talk about programs that we’re doing, but right now there are not a lot of gyms that are open. So our kids are just doing things on their own at their homes, and that’s what our coaches have tried to offer planning where it’s appropriate.”

Alabama’s football season is scheduled to begin Sept. 2 against Southern Cal in Dallas.

King Henry don’t need no gym. Maybe they can all call him for workout plans.

What a beast.

Ha Ha found a new home in Dallas.

According to NFL Network’s Jane Slater, the deal is for one year and $4 million, including $2.5 million guaranteed.

Clinton-Dix, 27, played for the Chicago Bears last year but spent the bulk of his career under McCarthy after being drafted in the first round by the Packers in 2014 out of Alabama. He was traded to the Washington Redskins in the 2018 season, during which McCarthy was later fired, and signed a one-year deal with the Bears last March.

Familiarity with the head man is always a good thing. Hopefully this will work out well for him.

Last, Kirk McNair tells his favorite story from covering Bear Bryant, and it is a good one. Don’t want to take his thunder by quoting it, but you will enjoy.

That’s about it for today. Have a great weekend.

Roll Tide.
