A Link-less Monday (Not Really)


Nothing from me for today’s paper. But I did have a relaxing, enjoyable weekend.

Plenty on tap for this week, though. Here’s my packed schedule for today:

• 10 a.m. – Sylvester Croom teleconference

• 11:45 a.m. – Nick Saban press conference (via telephone)

• 2:30 p.m. – Rick Stansbury press conference

• 4 p.m.ish – Football practice

So a big game week begins. No. 1 Alabama, unbeaten, has a spot in the SEC title game. No odds are yet available on the game. I am very curious to see what it opens at. To review: Kickoff is 6:45 p.m. at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, and ESPN is handling the broadcast.

From the Birmingham News this morning, Alabama AD Mal Moore talks about the Crimson Tide’s dream season. From the Mobile Press-Register, we learn that Saban isn’t too high on how his team played in the 27-21 overtime win at LSU: “We didn’t play very well.” And here are the latest BCS standings.

Now, I begin an intense search for caffeine.

UPDATE: Caffeine mission accomplished.

UPDATE #2: SEC has released its players of the week. They are:

• Offense: QB Tim Tebow, Floria

• Defense: S Rashad Johnson, Alabama

• Special teams: KR Tristan Davis, Auburn

• Offensive line: C Ben Jones, Georgia

• Defensive line: DE Jordin Lindsey, South Carolina

• Freshman: WR Julio Jones, Alabama
