Well, it is officially the first week of the season. Thursday night will be the official start for most fans when LSU visits Starkville to play Mississippi State. I’m sure we’ll all be about as useless as Rece Davis on Thursday night after his 25 hours of broadcasting. We’re all just football starved, so Thursday will only count as an hors d’oeuvre until the main entrée arrives Saturday night. For now, listen to this short Saban speech at Bama Blast earlier last week. You may need to turn the volume down until Saban starts to talk (crank it up again when he does). Have a great week everybody!
