tuscaloosa sushi

Crimson Tide SO Amy Pauly was named SEC Defensive player of the week. Despite her small sature, 5'4, the volleyball star was named to a trio of all-area squads in high school including a third-team choice of the Chicago Sun Times. Amy plans to major in marketing. Well I'm off to Americaland tomorrow to not only attend Toonypoloza 3 (POSTER from 1st Toonypoloza) in Tucson on Friday, but also to catch the USC / Arizona game and of course an important preseason tilt between the L.A. Kings and the Anaheim Ducks. So with a weeks worth of scholarly work ahead, it was important for me to finish recruiting as I may not be able to play NCAA 07 for an entire week.

Bama's undefeated season brought in the #1 recruiting class for 2010. Whereas the 2009 class brought in a lot of skill position players, this year's focus was on OLinemen, and in total 8 were signed, two were 5 star recruits and five were 4 stars. The most notable recruit was 4 star C Brandon Cochron, he will join SO WR Kenny Thornton as the second player on the Crimson Tide who calls the one and only Kitchener, Ontario, home. With most of the starters from last year's team returning, the only immediate need was at Punter and that was filled with the #1 overall Punter, Justin Brooks of Machesney Park, Illinois. As a preventive measure to reduce stabbings in Tuscaloosa, no other Punters were recruitied.

Other recruiting and off-season notes

- six 5 star recruits were signed, the most in the nation
- with several players on the roster from Ohio, the Buckeye state was finally established as a recruiting pipeline
- JR Josh Reese a 93 OVR HB has decided to transfer from Ohio St to Bama. He will have to sit out the 2010 season, but will have one year of eligibility in 2011. No reason was mentioned for the transfer, as star RB Steve Ferguson will still be around. There may be a position switch to WR for Reese.
- JR QB Chad Arnold progressed to a 95 OVR rating!!!!!
- Should Arnold leave for the NFL early rs-SO Travis Spicer (JUCO transfer from 2009) will take over. He was impressive in the Spring Game with 3 TDs against Bama's 1st Team Def. Spicer is from Parsippany, NJ which has 18.1% asian population!!!!!!!! Spicer can be spotted at this Tuscaloosa hotspot.
- SO WR Keith Meade (84 OVR) transferred to UAB. The Memphis native and 3 6 Mafia fan was the Tide's #1 Punt and Kick Returner, returning 3 punts for TDs. But with Bama's depth at WR, Meade decided a move to Birmingham was best for his career. (no hate)
- Bama goes into the 2010 season ranked #3, while Notre Dame is favored to repeat as they sit at #1. (match-up may be scheduled)

I have more to rant on including TIFF, the new location of the google tab links, and the Buffalo Predators, errr I meant Sabres, but Rory looks upset. see ya

p.s. USC and Tucson freshman watch out!
