Eddie Bonine has gotten his baptism of fire in a little less than five months as the LHSAA chief -- I don't know who has followed all of the dramatics in the high school sports ranks, but the new head of the LHSAA has not only had to deal with the foolish public/private split, he also nearly had his officials strike.

The Pursuit of Nick Saban: Alabama vs. Texas -- The New York Times has some information of interest out of a new book on Nick Saban's life and career, in which the mutual pursuit between Saban and Texas is discussed.
