RTR, right you are.

In other Bama related news ESPN's Chris Low reports the following:
"Alabama may also have to fight off Georgia to keep defensive coordinator Kirby Smart. The Bulldogs are expected to make a lucrative run at Smart for their defensive coordinator job after Mark Richt overhauled his defensive staff last week, firing coordinator Willie Martinez, defensive ends coach Jon Fabris and co-coordinator/linebackers coach John Jancek."
Smart played defensive back at Georgia from 1995-98 and served as an administrative assistant in 1999. He returned in 2005 and served one season as the running backs coach before leaving to coach under Saban in the NFL.
