Redneck Ninja - the best 2.5 minutes that's not Alabama Football. Something to keep us loose to balance the preparation for the season.
Coffee lit up the Raiders for 129 yards on 16 carries (8.1 ypc), all in the first half. Too bad the NFL doesn't allow embedding...
Ok...now that we are ranked #5 in both the AP and Coaches Poll...can we stop that whole "Bama's being disrespected" crap... Thanks...and btw we are officially 13 days away from VT!!! ROLL TIDE!!
Coffee having a mammoth game vs. The Raiders right now! The badass running back just tore off a 40 yd. run on an end around on the 9-er left side. He's been tearing it up between the tackles, and just backed-up the 2nd string safety for the Raiders- both of them hitting each other head on with Coffee getting the better of the exchange by making the safety take 8 steps backwards. It's the 2nd quarter and now that the OC for the 9-ers sees that the Raiders cannot handle Coffee- he has received the bulk of the carries and the 9-ers are now threatening to get on the board to even it up at 7. It's 2nd and goal to go. 3:23 before half. Damn, Glen's looking good in this pre-season game. But. . . .we all knew he'd be good at the next level. The pro level is his level. Handing it off to Coffee, to throw to Crabtree? That should be against the law, in some states.

Scott had a great scrimmage this afternoon -- four tackles and one interception -- and as you can tell from the scrimmage photos, he did so going up against the first team offense. It certainly looks like the former five-star athlete is quickly finding a home at cornerback, and it looks like he is getting ready to make a major contribution this year. At the very least, if he can keep close coverage on guys like Julio and Maze, he should be able to do the same for just about any other receiver in the SEC.

Notice in the background that you see James Carpenter (#77), the starting left tackle, so Grant was taking at least some snaps with the first team offense this Saturday. That is obviously great news for him, so hopefully we can find him a role somewhere.
