The Crimson Tide also held two scrimmages here in Bryant-Denny Stadium this spring (March 31 and April 6) in preparation for today’s game.

WALK OF FAME CEREMONY HONORED 2011 TEAM CAPTAINS<br/>The annual Walk of Fame ceremony took place Saturday at 12:15 p.m. at Denny Chimes. The 2011 permanent team captains – safety Mark Barron, linebacker Dont’a Hightower and running back Trent Richardson – had their hand prints and foot prints placed in cement at the base of Denny Chimes.

A-DAY GAME FORMAT<br/>The format for the A-Day game was much like a normal game, with a few minor variations primarily regarding the game clock. The game consisted of four 15-minute quarters with a running clock. The clock stopped only following scoring plays, penalties, and changes of possession. Regular clock rules were used during the final minutes of the second quarter and the fourth quarter.<br/>

      LSU just canned Les Miles.    Was reading tiger rant last night, and dude came on and called it for 4pm today. Guess there really are some insiders over there.   Orgeron interim.

      I'm assuming Armada might take over as interim(for some reason this was included in my quote as well?)

      He's definitely earning his check.  I've watched all of y'alls games this year and it just seemed like Tennessee was either playing to their competition or wasn't on the same page or I don't know what....spurts of really great football and then spurts of what the hell?   The difference this year is y'all have been able to overcome those things early in the season.  I think this win is going to be the galvanized game that takes y'all to Atlanta as much as it pains me to say it.

      What he was good at doing this past off-season is hiring Bob Shoop. I had the incredible pleasure of watching John Chavis coordinate our defense for over a decade here, and Bob Shoop brings me memories of Chavis' defenses. So good at halftime adjustments. How many DCs in this game can gameplan to overcome losing 3 of their top 4 players, when those 3 will all be drafted in the first two rounds?(Sutton and JRM this upcoming draft, and Kirkland whenever he decides to leave) If Shoop isn't one of the top candidates for the Broyles award(top assistant coach in college football) so far, the award is a sham.
