LSU fans make an attempt at this thing known as "funny." Fail miserably. Also miss the point by a rather wide margin but, hey, the corndogs were cookin' and they were distracted.
Some people were asking about Marvin Constant the other day, and I happened to run across this. He's now an assistant at Jackson-Olin, the largest high school in Birmingham city system (also, David Palmer's alma mater). He's in the red shirt in the above photo. Nice touch on the hat too. If nothing else, knee injury be damned, Constant was probably one of the biggest headhunters we've had at Alabama. His career was brief, but he killed people nevertheless. Truth be told, in many ways Constant looked better as a freshman in 1999 than did Dwayne Rudd, Demeco Ryans, or Rolando McClain did in their freshman campaigns.

Latest word is that Cretin-Derham Hall grad Seantrel Henderson, who was assured by new Southern California football coach Lane Kiffin during recruitment that USC would not receive serious NCAA penalties, is balking at his commitment and now leaning toward Miami, even though he would have to sit out a transfer season.Pioneer Press: Tigers manager Jim Leyland likes Twins' lefty bats So let me get this straight, Henderson is going to spurn USC for... wait for it... Miami? A program that has basically been at .500 for four straights years? A program with a head coach on the hot seat and making college football's version of the minimum wage? A program that has turned out more massive recruiting busts in the past decade than any other program in the country? And he's even going to be willing to sit out a year to play for that program? Oh sure, Miami used to be an NFL factory... with 99.9% of it arriving in Coral Gables back when Reagan and Clinton were in office. Oh no, this can't miss...
Just a few minutes ago, Roll Bama Roll surpassed 5 million visits -- a mere four months since we crossed the 4 million threshold. This comes after a banner June for the site. Over the past 30 days almost 267,000 visitors stopped by our humble digs -- the most for any month in the history of the site that didn't include the Alabama Crimson Tide winning a National Championship. Bottom line, this off season has seen the most traffic in the history of the site with our visits and page views on par with the regular seasons in years past. Which makes us a little giddy considering what is going to happen when football gets started for real this season. So, for now, we here at the RBR junta would like to offer our heartiest "Thanks" to everyone who has stopped in and taken part in our wonderful madness (even you guys doing image searches for Thierry Henry's wife). As always, Roll Tide!
Ouch. Just seems like it keeps getting worse for UGA.
Looks like Jeremy Massoli is looking to transfer somewhere in the southeast, looking at Louisiana Tech and Mississippi St. Of course because of the transfer rule Massoli would have to sit out the 2010-11 year and would only have one year of eligibility left for 2011-2012.
The guys over at 'BamaOnline have a free photo gallery up with a few recent BDS expansion photos, and I must say it looks great. And, for the record, it's grass...
"The University of Alabama still hopes to unveil a statue of Alabama football coach Nick Saban before the season, but that likely won't happen, says the man overseeing the project."
