we got somebody in their ear that's for sure

Tide assistant director of player personnel Aazaar Abdul-Rahim is from nearby Washington, D.C. He built Friendship Collegiate Academy in D.C. into a local power while working with players such as Florida standout cornerback Jalen Tabor before leaving to join Alabama's staff last year. He is known to be well-connected around Maryland and Washington, D.C.

Abdul-Rahim coached Diggs' half brother, Darez, at Friendship. He has had a relationship with the Diggs family since Trevon was in middle school.

"The first time I visited Alabama, it just shocked me how great of a community it is and how much of a family they are, and thought it would be great to be a part of that," Diggs said. "And then on top of that, having somebody down there that I can trust and be around and that's from my area that I know has my best interest at heart played a big factor, too."

Alabama offered Diggs a scholarship after Abdul-Rahim was hired in February 2014.

It is also great in a bowl of grits or a bowl of pinto beans....actually it's awesome in a bowl of beans.

Excellent recommendation.  I had beans and boudin for brunch.  For dinner tonight, I seared an almond crusted yellow fin tuna from cajungrocer.com. I took a handful of raw almonds and roasted them for 10 minutes and tossed them into a coffee grinder until they were a powder. Added olive oil, white pepper, garlic and thyme for a paste to marinate the tuna for an hour.  The ahi tuna was surprisingly sushi grade, so it was a big hit.

A Msu recruit who happens to be from a small town that lies between the 30 mile ride from my house to my farm is being rather vocal that he turned down Bama money and went with Msu. Whether he is telling the truth or not is irrelevant to me but he will learn what he is doing is stupid.

maybe Logan Young has been reincarnated after all.

I hate cell phone companies they are worse than the damn mafia.  Even if they don't make much difference it's good to see other companies give these bastards a little competition.

I was with Verizon from around 1994-11 starting with a personal plan then to family and finally family and business. When we were in business we had 12 phones I think then my family plan had another 4. This was a few years back but I was grandfathered with unlimited data my wife had 2GB and the kids just had text/calls. That was costing me $340-360 a month... Then Verizon decides to takeaway my unlimited and force us to shared data.

Now my job supplies my phone but my wife and kids have straight talk for less than $160 month. The only bad thing about straight talk is having to buy your phone.. some are pretty pricey and you'd spend a fortune trying to keep up with the newest thing. As far as service they use the same towers I believe you can even pick at&t or verizon depending on which gives you better service and then buy the phone for that network. My wife and kids don't have any complaints but they shouldnt with me paying for it.

I've always bought an unlocked phone directly from the manufacturer.  That way I bypass all of the carrier apps and have the flexibility to move from carrier to carrier depending on the strength of the network.  I don't believe that phone companies give you a phone, they just amortize the cost over time plus interest.   And then the phone company can jack you around with their plan/rates because you're locked into a contract.

Chasing the latest greatest new phone is too expensive to me.  I eventually break a phone around year 5, then I spend $300-400 for the best phone value.   I don't understand folks that wait in lines for hours to get an iPhone, but that's just me.   I won't want in line to checkout at the grocer store.   If the store has aisles that are closed, I'll push the cart to the front desk and walk out.

My take would be determined by just how much progress they can make and how fast the progress is going forward.  They've proved that it's possible.....what's next?

Take computers for example...when I was in high school in the early 90's, we were working on Apple II's that used actual floppy disks and it was a wow moment when I figured out how to get a line of text to scroll endlessly up the screen.  Now, 20-something years later, the progress in computers and like devices is truly exponential and has literally changed the world.  Could that happen with this technology?  

Time will tell....I personally hope it does because it could be by the time my kids are my age that every house has a unit the size of a typical central A/C unit outside that powers the home for as long as it stands.  That would also change the world.

First time I saw a desktop computer was 1982... an old crusty professor had 15 stand alone Apple II and he was teaching folks how to code in basic.  Everyone else said they were just toys.   The real computer was the Univac mainframe in the basement of Bidgood.   I hated feeding that monster a stack of punched cards.
