Bye week reading time

Ahhh. The relaxation of a bye week. Well, sort of. It’s not a complete week away from football for this beat writer. While I’m working on a few things for the weekend papers, here are a few other stories you might like to read.

  • Check out this story on about recruiting, more specifically a few top Alabama recruits including Phillip Sims. It’s an interesting look at the process written by former Birmingham News Alabama beat writer Ian Rapoport.
  • Now, for one of the stories I love to read and wish I could write more often. Chase Goodbread of the Tuscaloosa News wrote this interesting story about Julio Jones’ kindness to a kid with a brain tumor.
  • Stay tuned to Sunday’s paper for an off-the-field type story I’m working on. It’s not as heartwarming as Goodbread’s but I thought it was an interesting topic. No more clues until Sunday.
  • Apparently, Mark Ingram is quite the golfer. Read this.
