Ameer Abdullah declines to get specific on results of NFL draft advisory board. But "it was really high," he said.[/quote]
We likely would've not gotten Mason late in 2011, so no complaining here, but Abdullah really wanted to come to AU. He has done really well...

My funds are up roughly 30-40% for the year across the board. I know all the tried and true strategies about buy and hold, and generally believe in them, but just a few years ago, many on this board had concluded that this approach was obsolete.
I've never done this, but trying to learn from hist...

Very popular story of Louie Zamperini written by Laura Hillenbrand.
Just saw the movie is currently being filmed and is a Coen brothers screenplay.
I'm pumped about all of the above, as I loved the book and am a huge Coen brothers fan.
However, IMDB says it's being directed by Angelina J...

Lose and State stays home while an 8-4 OM goes to a decent Music City-CFA type bowl. Following in Feb with another top 10-15 recruiting class.
Now State goes to a bowl, even in Bham, and OM goes to Liberty-type bowl. And State stays in the football discussion during bowl season. Giving them some...
| SEC Rant|| Alabama, Auburn, FSU - Sigma on 11/28/13 at 7:21 am|
The only schools to have Rivals Top 10 recruiting classes in each of the last 4 years.
Is it surprising these schools make up 3 of the top 4 in the current BCS standings?
(As an aside, surprising that list doesn't include LSU, UF, UGA, Texas, USC.)...

Comparing to the numbers from last week, in the Coaches poll we gained 123 points overall, and moved 99 points closer to Ohio State. Need to update when the Harris numbers come out.
A win over Bama may not require an OSU loss, just looking at the numbers. Will be very close if trends hold up. ...

Alabama is very fortunate AJ decided to stick around. He has been the difference maker in many big games the last few years. Replacing him in 2014 will be interesting to watch.
So who will it be?
