It’s that time again to take a daily look at what is making news in the Alabama athletic universe.
- Check out that countdown clock on the left-hand side of the page. There are fewer than 50 days until kickoff now.
- There may be two fewer Alabama players making the trip to Atlanta for the opener with Virginia Tech. Brandon Faney is thinking about a transfer, the Tuscaloosa News is reporting. Should he follow through, the backup linebacker would join Chris Jackson who wants to transfer to an ACC school.
- Alabama fans apparently can come from Tennessee too.
- Stay tuned for a Q & A in tomorrow’s paper with Crimson Tide basketball coach Anthony Grant. I will try and steal a few minutes with the new coach today in Huntsville where he will be speaking at the All-Star Sports Week.
- That event is where I was able to get a few minutes with Florida coach Urban Meyer along with a few other reporters. Check out the pub the Bama Blog is getting by clicking here.
