Except for the number 19 men's basketball team playing in the Great Alaska Shootout, all is quiet on The University of Alabama athletics front this week and weekend. Which is about as it should be.

Alabama Head Football Coach Mike Shula has no illusions about the expectations of Crimson Tide football. "Ultimately," he said, "it's judged on wins and losses." He also knows it's not a simple proposition. Shula will begin his second year as Bama head coach for preseason practice Tuesday.
