I'm more so shocked Coach Saban would accuse the police of pro-LSU bias. Does he imagine Les Miles as being behind all this? One wonders at the paranoid state Coach Saban's mind may currently be in.

Nope. Les isn't behind it, but you're fairly close.

Just ask yourself why the two Alabama players were picked up and the two other large black men set free.

Anyway, the DA elected to NOT file charges.

Please tell me when you've spent this much time talking about a situation in which the DA has looked at a case and elected to not file a charge?

Coach Saban, incidentally, will be appearing on Finebaum's show again tomorrow.

AA, I believe you have fairly good connections within the Bryant-Denny Kremlin. Can we expect an apology from Nick Saban to the national television audience? I imagine there's a lot of parents who had to explain the colorful language to their small children. He owes it to them, don't you think?

You speak of mere legalities when the issue is so very much more about honor. NCAA violations are fully within the law as well, and yet Coach Saban would not approve. Surely out for a joyride while toking and caressing stolen guns should result in more discipline than having to miss 'team movie night'?

For generations America has turned to the great state of Alabama for its moral guidance. May that not change!

It was off air and the audio from the guy semi-secretly taping is unintelligible. No apology is necessary, but he probably will. He's that nice a guy.

Okay. I'm sorry about the BR Tiger bit. Sorry to BR, that is. You're more OP.

Pity.

Take care, DSL.

In this Bucknell-UAB "war" of "words" it appears the Blazer has jumped ahead on points through his surprising use of a complete sentence. Can the Bucknelli parry?

Circus is getting started on CNN. We'll discuss Coach Saban's inability to foster a culture of responsibility among his players another time. It's a topic that deserves thoughtful, informed positions, but I'm hoping AA can still participate.

DSL wishes he were a Bucknellian. At least Bucknell thinks of itself as a hidden Ivy. Not like the brigands from half-public Cornell - where you attend classes in buildings with stucco walls and cinder block exteriors in front of a sewage lake that catches fire every spring.

It's the worst of the fake Ivies.

At least he hasn't harbored a murderer!

Should you be more worried about shitting in a bag?

The Bama football cook-out is this weekend, but I will be in scenic Macon, Georgia.

One of the Bama blogs collects message board reactions from fans of losing teams and posts them. Some can be pretty funny (they do Bama when we lose).

Selected this one because it has Michigan in it.

My upset pick to win the SEC this year is Tennessee.

The Vols, last year, won 7 of their last 8 games including a 45-6 dismantling of Northwestern in the Outback Bowl. Their only loss in that stretch was to Bama by 5 at Bryant-Denny (they led with 2:25 left in the 4th quarter).

They return 10 starters on offense and 8 on defense. They have been recruiting fairly well, and are deep. They will be a hand full. Do not sleep on the Vols this year.
