20 July 2010
For a random Tuesday in July, this was a huge newsday for the Tide. Some news good, some news bad.
Certainly, the coolest news was the release of the media guide covers. There are four, and my favorite is on the right. See the rest at the Tuscaloosa News site.
There was, however, some bad news to go with the good. Marcell Dareus may be mixed up with some NCAA trouble. Fortunately, the UA compliance staff seems to be all over it. Assuming it was in the offseason, we should expect that Marcell would be back for the trip to Arkansas. If not... start praying now.
More good news, after the jump.
Bama has six players that are all-SEC first team. The T-News explains:
2009 Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, running back, joined offensive teammates Julio Jones (wide receiver) and Barrett Jones (offensive guard) on the first squad along with defensive teammates Marcell Dareus (defensive end), Don't'a Hightower (linebacker) and Mark Barron (safety).
Three more were second team - Trent Richardson, Greg McElroy, and James Carpenter.
In Tuscaloosa city news, the City Council considers tonight renaming streets after championship coaches who have completed their career. The council will consider honoring Frank Thomas, Harold "Red" Drew, and Gene Stallings by renaming 12th, 13th and 14th avenues after the former coaches.
And last (and probably least), Star Jackson is excited about his transfer to Georgia State. He's joining a high school coach and a high school teammate in Atlanta. Jackson has shown absolutely no bitterness about the transfer. Way to stay classy, Star. Thanks for helping the program when you could.
We'll no doubt have more about media days this week, but it's a personally hectic week for the writers at the BSR - so we'll drop in when we can.
