Did you notice?

  • Alabama football appears set to add a pair of assistants to its staff. 
  • Alabama cornerback Josh Jobe is officially off to the NFL after signing with an agent. Jobe, a senior, could have returned for one final year due to the NCAA’s blanket eligibility waiver granted to players due to COVID-19.
  • Alabama football extended offers to a few recruits, including 2022 tight end Danny Lewis Jr. as well as 2023 receivers Carnell Tate and Aidan Mizell and 2023 offensive tackle Payton Kirkland.
  • Freshman point guard J.D. Davison made his first career start for Alabama. The five-star talent has had better nights as he recorded just 4 points and three rebounds over 18 minutes in the Crimson Tide’s 70-67 victory over No. 13 LSU.
  • LSU basketball coach Will Wade was called for a technical foul after arguing a call in the second half of Wednesday’s loss to Alabama.
  • Following the game, Wade spoke his mind when asked about the incident.
