Take a moment for historical reflection by viewing this excellent video put together by student Daniel Roth chronicling 50 years of integration at the University of Alabama.

High Tide, Low Turnout

Alabama fans are greeted with a familiar sight as kickoff nears for a football game in Bryant-Denny Stadium. It’s as common as seeing the Million Dollar Band on the field or the pre-game "Tradition" video. Only this one isn’t so inspiring...

Coach Kevin Sumlin released this statement: "All of us are obviously very concerned about the safety and well-being of Thomas Johnson, who has been missing since Monday evening. Authorities are working closely with his family, friends and law enforcement agencies to help locate him. Thomas is a tremendous student-athlete, greatly admired by his fellow teammates and all of us on the coaching staff. If anyone has any current information about him or knows of his whereabouts, please contact his family or law enforcement authorities immediately. We pray for his quick and safe return."

Johnny Football Rises

"Bryant-Denny, where I learned the truth about despair, as will you. There's a reason why this stadium is the worst hell on earth... Hope. Every team who has played here over the years has looked up to the light and imagined a victory. So easy... So simple... And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize the Aggies, I will feed their fans hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can win so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to "stay in the hunt." You can watch me torture an entire fanbase and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Dennis Franchione's destiny... We will destroy Texas A&M and then, when it is done and A&M is ashes, then you have my permission to die."

And then there was the student reaction...

UA Fraternity Pledgeship Cancelled

Not exactly sports related but it will have a significant impact on campus life. Including the football seating privileges of greek students. I along with all Alabama parents received a very detailed email concerning this today. During a meeting on campus today Assistant Dean of Students Lowell Davis stated, "No hell week is to take place and, I quote, if hell week does take place, there will be hell to pay from the University of Alabama."

BCS computers currently have Alabama ranked fifth

"We have fans all over the US and I think it is time that they RISE UP and snatch back what satan, himself, has stolen. We serve a God who recovers ALL that "has been stolen" from us and there are times that He requires the efforts of His people to accomplish this truth."

BCS Championship Postcript: Jarrett Lee

In the same week that the vaunted Honey Badger was dismissed from the LSU squad, an undrafted Jarrett Lee stood out in his performance for the San Diego Chargers, throwing 15 of 22 for 235 yards and 2 touchdowns...further reason for LSU fans to be disgruntled with Les Miles' mystifying decision to not allow Lee a single down in the championship game.
