HEY EVERYONE WELCOME INTO SPORTS… WELL KICKERS MAY NOT BE FOOTBALL PLAYERS… AT LEAST ACCORDING TO SOME… BUT THEY SURE CAN CAUSE SOME DRAMA… YOU SEE YESTERDAY SOUTH CAROLINA HEAD COACH STEVE SPURRIER ACCUSED ALABAMA OF PUTTING A SMALL PIECE OF WHITE TAPE ON THE GROUND TO SPOT KICKS… THE S-E-C SAYS THEY’RE LOOKING INTO THAT… BUT TODAY… NICK SABAN RESPONDED… ///

THE TIDE HEAD COACH SAID THAT HE DIDN’T KNOW HIS KICKERS WERE USING TAPE AND ADDED THAT IT’S NOT WORTH RISKING A FIVE YARD PENALTY… HOWEVER… SABAN ALSO SAID HIS COACHING STAFF HAS FOUND THAT MORE THAN HALF THE TEAMS IN THE CONFERENCE PUT SOMETHING OR OTHER ON THE GROUND… WHEATHER IT’S TAPE OR GRASS OR MUD… SO THAT THE KICKER KNOWS WHERE THE BALL WILL BE SPOTTED… HE SAID THAT INCLUDES SOUTH CAROLINA… ///

MEANWHILE… SWITCHING GEARS NOW… IN FEBRUARY… FORMER ALABAMA STANDOUT KEITH MCCANTS HAD A LARGE WRITE UP IN THE MOBILE PRESS REGISTER… THE GENERAL JIST OF THE ARTICLE WAS THAT THE FORMER LINEBACKER WAS TRYING TO TURN HIS LIFE AROUND AFTER AN ADDICTION TO DRUGS… WELL YESTERDAY HE WAS ARRESTED ON AN OUTSTANDING WARRANT OF LOITERING AND POSESSION OF DRUG PARA-FAH-NEEL-YA… AS OF TUESDAY AFTERNOON HE WAS BEING HELD IN A MOBILE JAIL ON TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS BAIL… ///

AND ONE OTHER NOTE COMING FROM OUR FRIENDS AT THE PRESS-REGISTER… ALABAMA SPENT MORE THAN 175 THOUSAND DOLLARS ON ATTORNEY FEES RELATED TO DEFENDING ITSELF IN THE NC-DOUBLE-A’S TEXT BOOK CASE… /// THE EXPENSES WERE PAID OUT OF FUNDS FROM THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT… /// AS A RESULT OF THE CASE THE NC-DOUBLE A VACATED NUMEROUS TIDE VICTORIES… INCLUDING 21 FOOTBALL WINS… /// THE UNIVERSITY HAS APPEALED TO RESTORE THOSE RECORDS… ///

AND THAT’LL DO IT THIS EVENING FOR SPORTS… I’M ADAM BAGNI… HOPE YOU JOIN ME AGAIN… TOMORROW NIGHT… GUYS… ///
