I guess we should have seen this coming, but it was made official today. Meanwhile, the co-captain of the team, Elgin Bailey, has been sent packing...er, I mean will transfer.
Pat Forde let loose on Stansbury with both barrels at his blog on ESPN. Stansbury had better hope Sidney doesn't blow up again. In the short term what this means is that Alabama will of course travel to Starksville to face a Mississippi State with all three of its star players (Ravern Johnson, Dee Bost and Sidney) assuming Sidney doesn't assault anyone before tip-off. With those three playing together State is a much better team, particularly at home.
