Mal Moore Passes Away

Cecil Hurt is reporting Mal Moore passed away this morning in North Carolina at the age of 73.

Nick Saban Joins Elite Company

6

I ran across this Chris Low article today on ESPN.com. It brings up some interesting points that could make for an interesting argument among fellow Alabama fans. This would be especially true if he picks up another ring or two. The difference in eras of football would be the big argument. Recruiting, scholarship caps, and more competitive balance make it harder to obtain the numbers of someone like Bryant in the modern system.

OTL- The Les You Know

31

Let me start off by saying I am a lifetime Alabama fan, and a current Alabama student. I follow college football very closely and have always respected LSU as one of the best run programs in the SEC. That being said, I've always had mixed feelings about Les Miles. That opinion shifted this morning when I went through and read this article about Les Miles. It goes into great length and detail about the struggle college coaches, in particular Miles, face in struggling to balance family and football. I never before realized how focused MIles is on family, nor on how loose he keeps himself and his team. I just wanted to take a few moments to drop in to congratulate LSU on having such a good person as well as a coach to lead ya'lls team. Sports have became so cut throat, and they need more men willing to take the time to focus on their family that so often get left behind. That is all I wanted to mention. Good luck Saturday. It should be a good one. Roll Tide. *Ed. Note from Billy: I wanted to post this, saw that Singlealt beat me to the punch, and thought his kind words deserved some acknowledgement.

Rocky Top Halftime Show Mocking Rivals

7

I have always enjoyed UT's circle drill. I know that is probably against some rule having been a lifetime Alabama fan, but I just always found it to be entertaining. I know they do it every year, and that is a large part of why it goes well. This video is of the 2011 halftime show that UT's band has done based on the Wizard of Oz. In it they mock SEC rivals Alabama, South Carolina and Kentucky. Granted it is mildly entertaining, but overall I find it to be a lack of class when your band stoops to mocking other schools. I guess if your team can't beat them, your band should take jabs at them.

RBR Question

I have been a fan of Roll 'Bama Roll for a longtime now. I check it daily, but sometimes I cruise around some of the other SB Nation SEC sites to see what the fans of other teams are discussing....

Auburn to Move to SEC East Sources Say

3

AL.com had an article up concerning the rumors of possible expansion with Missouri. This is something we've already seen, but there is also an interesting bit about possibly moving Auburn to the SEC East division. SEC scheduling will have to change if teams are added, but will Alabama be able to continue with both their Tennessee and Auburn rivalries if Auburn moves to the East?

How can you not love Penn State fans?

6

This article ran in the Crimson White on campus today. It is a letter to the paper from some Penn State fans welcoming UA fans to Happy Valley. From my experience last year, I would say that the Penn State fan base was one of the nicest fan bases I've ever seen. The ones I met were a joy to have on campus. They also mention in this article a drink that will be sold in memory of the Tuscaloosa tornado and proceeds will go to tornado relief.

Joe Paterno Admits Breaking NCAA Rule

5

Even Joe Pa is not above reproach. He admitted that he recently broke a NCAA rule without realizing. Penn State has since self reported to the NCAA, but this just goes to show exactly how easy it is for coaches to break a rule without realizing.

22

"The lure of the elusive athletic scholarship is the primary -- sometimes the only -- marketing tool these youth sports entrepreneurs use."

Alabama Impresses Boise State Coaches

18

"It was an extremely classy place and yet not a ton of bling," Strausser said of the program that won the 2009 national title. "We’ve been to some places that are Top 10 programs that it’s a flat screen every time you turn around a corner. That wasn’t their deal — but it’s a classy, classy place."

This is an interesting prospective from someone in Cleveland who is a big Buckeye fan, and "which requires that I hate all SEC teams equally." It gives a summary of the questionable history of Bobby Lowder and Auburn athletics.
