Blog Roll Call & More

  • Capstone Report’s recent post about the SEC Spring Meetings and the Shula vs. Alabama issues is a good one, check it out.
  • Everyone needs to check out Bama Nation. They provide opinions, forums, night chats, and more.
  • I did notice Nick Saban taking the high road against Les Miles at the SEC Spring Meetings,

“I didn’t really have a previous relationship with Les. I respect what he has done,” Saban said. “I don’t have any bad feelings for him. I can’t speak for him, though.”

The man deserves a vacation from all of this ill-will.

  • So far two Alabama games have TV slots: Alabama @ Vanderbilt (11:30 am CDT) LF Sports, and Arkansas @ Alabama (5:45 pm CDT) ESPN. I pray that this is the only 11:30 am game we have to play.

That is all for now. Click the links to the side to see some quality blogging and more!!

    It is funny, how most words have several meanings and how newspaper headline writers sometimes use words out of context in an attempt to undermine a person’s integrity. Yes it may be “funny”, but not in a sense that leaves Tide fans laughing, grinning or even smiling.

    Are these hacks (use bad context) trying to leave the casual headline reader with the impression that Coach Saban is breaking rules and laughing in the face of the NCAA and all others?

    It is sad that the Birmingham News had to join in with the hacks in the Miami Florida’s press in distorting Coach Saban’s comments and actions. If these hacks could perform their jobs a tenth as well as Coach Saban they would be at the top of their profession.

    See following example in paper or Internet Version on al.com:

    The Birmingham News
    “Saban finds allegations with Miami connection `funny’ “

    Excellent observation. Reading the Birmingham News sports section day in and day out makes me long for the days of the Post-Herald. They may not have been the most popular paper in state, but they certainly had a higher quality than the News.

    TD, I agree with your comparison of the Birmingham newspapers. It may have been the left wing and pro union views on the editorial page that initially hurt the
    Post-Herald in a changing political climate. Only near the end, in the last year or so, did the sport’s page suffer. For a long time, the popularity of the PH Sport’s Page carried the newspaper.

    Thanks to the Internet we can now get some good info from the Tuscaloosa, Huntsville and Mobile newspapers in addition to the Birmingham News, well without a trip to the library. And that is just in state Newspapers. There is so much more on the Internet.

    I am officially spoiled.
