    I think they'll try it for the exact reason you said ($$$) but it's so hard to picture it going well enough to make it through a season at this point. The Clemson outbreak isn't a good sign. I fear it'll be called off long before we get a chance to spank the Vols again which is probably what Tennessee fans are praying for at this point.

    I think they're at least going to begin the season as they normally would but I'm guessing a lot of people, primarily outside of the south, are just going to stay home voluntarily. Packing stadiums, even with masks, is outrageously stupid and I hope they don't go that route. I think the scenarios are:

    1) cases keep increasing and large gatherings are infeasible. We either get no crowds or no games at all.

    2) partial capacity stadiums with distanced seating.

    3) full on death cult, dgaf mode with full stadiums.

    Feels like 2 and 3 are the most likely.

    Pete’s obviously talking about the new Devonta Smith, who’s committing tonight, and Dallas Turner but if we somehow land Brian Thomas this week too that would be wild

    Smith has never taken an actual visit to Tuscaloosa. He has been to a game, so he’s familiar with the atmosphere. Plus, he’s done a virtual visit with the staff this offseason. Once Nick Saban came calling, though, there wasn’t much recruiting UA had to do.

    “I can’t even lie to you. Bama has always been my dream school,” he said. “I’ve always looked up to Coach Saban. He’s my idol. He’s the best ever to do it in my eyes and I’m pretty sure everyone else’s eyes, too. There really wasn’t much of a pitch. His resumé puts it out there for you. There’s nothing he promised me or nothing he can promise me. I’m going to go in there and put my head down and go to work like I always do. I’ve never been handed nothing in my life and I don’t plan to get anything handed to me now. I’m going in to work for everything I need and want.”

    Smith actually has a unique tie to the Crimson Tide in that he’s is first cousins with former star Tide running back Shaun Alexander. Saban actually turned to Alexander in the recruiting process.

    “What was crazy was my cousin Shaun, he didn’t even know I had an offer from Alabama,” Smith said. “The first time I ever spoke to Coach Saban he actually called Shaun and told him he needed me to be on his team and needed me to be a part of Roll Tide. (He said) The leadership skills and my talent and everything that I bring would bring up the team’s potential.”

    Tide fans need not worry about Smith changing his mind again.

    “I’m fully committed,” Smith said.

    Alabama is starting to make a serious move for five-star DL Maason Smith. It doesn't mean I am predicting him to Alabama. My prediction is still LSU, but Alabama was fading a few months ago and now back to clearly in the race for his signature. He mentioned Alabama, Georgia, LSU and Miami as the schools recruiting him the hardest at this time.

    "The standard there is unlike anybody else in the country," Smith told Rivals.com on Sunday regarding Alabama. "They put top players in the league every year. The relationship with Coach (Pete) Golding and Coach (Nick) Saban and Coach (Freddie) Roach, the new strength staff, I talk to them, too, and they're good people. They want to see the best in me, and anyone who wants to see the best in me has a chance of getting me."

    Hopefully we make it a yearly, painful reminder to not go on our 50 yard line and show his ass again. Also the "Roll Tide, what? Fuck you". Kinda liked him before that.

    Speaking of Shaun Alexander: Florence is well known in surrounding cities for a water tower visible from I-71/I-75 that reads "Florence Y'all". Originally the tower advertised the up-and-coming Florence Mall, as part of an agreement by the mall developers who donated the land for the tower. However, because the mall was not built yet, the tower violated highway regulations, and the city was forced to change it within a short deadline. Rather than repaint the entire tower, they simply painted over the two vertical lines of the "M" to create a "Y". The intent was to change it back when the mall was built, but the local residents liked the tower's new proclamation, so the city decided to leave it as it was.
    Sports[edit]
    The city is home to the Florence Y'alls independent minor league baseball team. The Y'alls have played at UC Health Stadium in Florence since the venue's completion in 2004.[13]

    The fighting Y'alls!

    Does anyone know if we’re still favored for Sorey? He's transferring to IMG, which bodes well with Latham and Brooks, but he also doesn't ever really talk about us.
