Bama Central Headlines …

Did you notice?

  • Six Alabama gymnasts are All-Americans, including SEC Gymnast of the Year Luisa Blanco.
  • Former Alabama pitcher Jimmy Nelson was added to the 40-man roster of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He played for the Crimson Tide from 2008-10.
  • Former Crimson Tide defensive lineman Jarran Reed is moving on from the Seattle Seahawks. Reed was a member of the 2015 CFP National Championship team.
  • Interesting stat here. Jaylen Waddle, of course, was unable to finish his Alabama career at 100 percent, or else even more records would've fallen in 2020. 
  • NFL Network's Brian Baldinger sees what many Crimson Tide fans already know ... Patrick Surtain II is really good.

On this date in Crimson Tide history: 

March 26, 1968: Kenny Stabler, the first round pick of the Houston Astros in baseball, decided to continue his sports career in football as he signed with the Oakland Raiders. Stabler, who led the Crimson Tide to a 19-2-1 record over two seasons, apparently was influenced by Oakland head coach John Rauch, a former Georgia quarterback, who insisted Stabler will be given a full chance to compete with Raider signal caller Daryle Lamonica.

Crimson Tide quote of the day:

“I started my life third-and-long. I skipped practices. I got kicked off my high-school team. I got kicked off my college team. I left pro football in 1969. I've had third-and-15 my whole life. Everybody's had rocky moments from day one. But sometimes you pick up third-and-long, and that's where you make your money. That's where the satisfaction comes, from the game and from life.” – Kenny Stabler
