With Javy Arenas being traded to Arizona today, the Cardinals now have Patrick Peterson, Rashad Johnson, Javy Arenas, and Jerraud Powers. They also drafted Tyran Mathieu.
Arenas is expected is man the slot for the Cards, but will no longer be a main return guy as he was in Kansas City. ...

So apparently his wife made some miraculous recovery in record time. His "reason" for leaving Alabama was her health. In the linked article he seems to blame a "lack of privacy" as one reason. Lots of folks seem to think his hard line on Greeks is what got him run off.

The talk of Grant's future, over the Lacey transfer, has me to thinking about Mitch Gaspard. He's another Moore hire that isn't on solid ground. Jim Wells isn't around either, to keep him in the dugout.
I think a regional is a real possibility this year. We just need to get to 15-15 in the confe...

Young team, sluggish bats, solid pitching, and decent defense. That's about all the positives I can find. Would love to steal one, so we're not having to rely on a series sweep over Missouri and Texas A&M just to find a way into a regional. It's going to be tough coming out of this weekend 23-19 (8-...

I've always wondered how he was pretty solid at Alabama and failed so miserably at Texas A&M. He ran from the impact of NCAA penalties in 2002, but was building a solid foundation that would have gotten him through, IMO. He fielded solid offenses and suffocating defenses in the two years he was in T...
