By the time the game comes up I hope we will have addressed our weaknesses and done something to remedy them, but that remains to be seen. I expect the Gators to be vastly improved this year. I hope you enjoy your trip to Tuscaloosa!

Our game with Bama is fairly early; I don't know if that will help us or hurt us.  Anyway, it will be a major East / West confrontation, and that means some good SEC football.

As long as Coker comes in and performs, we will be our usual self. And I think we have our best defense since 2011. The O-line just needs time to mesh; it has been all over the place this spring.

The depth on your OL is going to be a problem if you get some folks hurting and limping, and the smartness, savvy, and talent of McCarron is going to be sorely missed.  Driskel should be the better QB in the game.  Also, the running of Mack Brown, who is a senior, will be augmented by the surprise freshman, Adam Lane, who at 222 lbs., showed himself to be a load to bring down in the spring game.  I hope these things add up to us moving the ball on your stingy D.  Our DL is going to be pretty awesome and should take advantage of your OL weaknesses.  It could be a very good and close game, the kind of fingernail-biter that we love in the SEC.

As far as the game being early goes, it will be the same for us, of course. Maybe we will both get things together and play a great game!

I thought we needed a central location to collect all of the rumors that I'm gonna start.   So if you have one better then log it here.

1.  Alabama has just activated the gray shirt freshman OL Brad Bozeman.  Which means that Christobal believes Bozeman is ready to play OR the offense line seriously lacks depth.

My guess.

Agree I like the shorter guards with better leverage

I don't care how tall they are, as long as they manhandle the DT in front of them and quick enough to pick off a LB.

I wish we were that spoiled. the height of our guards never is a question. can he play and is there a back up is the most we can ask for. well, that and hopes nobody feeds them Mexican the night before a game.

That moment presented itself last Thursday in the Oakland courtroom of U.S. District Court Judge Claudia Wilken, as she listened to testimony in what has become known as the Ed O'Bannon case. On the stand to her lower left was Neal Pilson, witness for the NCAA, a former CBS television executive who was there to say that without amateurism, many fans would turn away from college sports.


Skeptical, the lawyer for the plaintiffs read Pilson a quote from the writings of the late Paul "Bear" Bryant, in which the legendary University of Alabama coach observed in retirement, "I used to go along with the idea that football players on scholarship were student athletes, which is what the NCAA calls them, meaning student first and athlete second. We were kidding ourselves, trying to make it more palatable to the academicians. We don't have to say that, and we shouldn't. At the level we play, the boy is really an athlete first and a student second."

That was a win for the plaintiffs, just getting that in the court record. But then it got better.

Much better.

The lawyer, Bill Isaacson, asked Pilson if he thought such an opinion has an impact on the affection that Crimson Tide fans have for their team, and more broadly, television ratings for games.

Pilson bristled, responding, "We're talking about the strongest possible school in terms of pro football. I read what Bear says, but I -- I think, frankly, the University of Alabama football advocates follow their team win or lose, paying them or not."

You read that right. The court transcript did not get it wrong. Pilson called Bama a pro team.

A couple of us reporters looked at each other to confirm what we thought we had just heard, before tweeting. For me, confirmation came in the form of the mass shifting of posteriors in courtroom seats after the verboten word fell from Pilson's expert mouth, an audible mash-up of doomsday nerves at the NCAA table of lawyers and restrained glee on the plaintiffs' side.


That's hilarious.

Let's face it, most of the SEC can be considered a minor league for the NFL. About as pro as it gets in "amateur" college football.
