Bama schedule addition, a late addition to this blog

So, on August 30, 2008, approximately 210 days from today, Alabama will open its football season in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta against Clemson. The addition of the Clemson game makes Bama's schedule a good bit tougher, but if the Tide can pull off a victory against the Tigers, the win will provide some early season momentum. Should be exciting, to say the least.

And, in other Tide-friendly news, Nick Saban hired Jim McElwain to replace Major Applewhite as offensive coordinator. McElwain seems like a good addition, having worked with Saban in the NFL at Cleveland under Bill Belichick. McElwain was hired awa¥ from Fresno State where his run-first spread helped boost the Bulldogs' offense during 2007. More news related to the hiring can be found here.
