• The Alabama men’s golf team took a 5-1 loss to No. 22 Illinois to close out the Cypress Point Classic at Pebble Beach, Calif. The Crimson Tide finished the Ryder Cup-style tournament in sixth place. “An incredible opportunity for our guys to play at the Cypress Point Classic,” Crimson Tide coach Jay Seawell said. “Cypress Point is one of the greatest and most iconic golf clubs in all the world. For us to get a chance to play against some outstanding programs – only eight schools have a chance to play in this event and for us to be invited is an incredible honor. Our team is very thankful for this opportunity. We have a very young team and we learned a lot this week.”

• For the first time in the history of Alabama’s Halloween-flavored intrasquad, the Ghosts and Goblins meet ended in a tie. Seniors Wynter Childers and Maddie Desch led the Ghosts while fellow senior Shea Mahoney and junior Lexi Graber led the Goblins. “I thought the energy was good, and we made some good steps,” Crimson Tide coach Dana Duckworth said in a release. “We definitely have a lot of room for improvement on landings and other things. I was really proud of four-up, four-count on balance beam. I love our dance, I think our rhythm is good and we have some big beam routines.”

Crimson Tide quote of the day:
Oct. 30: “I felt like I would take the field with the general, he was that type of guy to me. If I lose, it's ‘Man, Coach Saban lost.' He's that type of guy. He comes into a room and everybody's silent. He demands respect. He still reminds me of that general.” – Former LSU defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey (2004-07)
