  1. I am expecting such big things from Fairley this year either at DT or DE. Bama made a strong push for him when Willis went to the dark side.

  2. Sorry there has not been a ton posted on here...these kind of fill the boring days...I have a feeling we will get some good news Sat, Sun or Mon and then next weekend is shaping up to be a big weekend...Seastrunk will be on campus next weekend I have learned...
