WHAT YOU MISSED THURSDAY


First a note about last night’s Alabama softball game… Bama drops opener against Arizona State. Bama played good enough to win, but I don’t understand walking the ASU power hitter intentionally to start the final inning. Even if she hits a homer, the game is only tied. I wonder how long coach Pat Murphy will debate that. He walked her all night and it worked until the 7th. And Yes, the line drive double was a foul ball… bad call… Now

On the Dunaway and Brown show Thursday…

Great guest on Thursday:
Conredge Holloway joined D&B and the guys talked with him about:
1. The much talked about freshman game versus Notre Dame that drew over 30,000 as Neyland Stadium. Vols won over Tom Clements and Gerry DiNardo’s Irish.
2. Holloway is very excited to be in the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame with his coach Bill Battle.
3. Caller McVee says the reason he is a Vols fan is because of Holloway
4. Holloway almost signed a baseball contract with the Expos. Gadsden listeners called in and shared stories of Holloway’s Lee of Huntsville team playing Gadsden in the state playoffs and Holloway hit two homeruns over 400 feet with wooden bats

Marty Blake director of scouting for NBA joined D&B:
1. Despite media reports, Marty told us Ronald Steele is playing well all things considered but that he should return to school
2. Hendrix is really impressive and could play right now either in the NBA or Europe and make a lot of money
3. Robert Vaden can really fill it up, and is better than expected on defense
4. Quan Prowell has been a big surprise. Marty thinks he’ll have a chance to make a squad even if he is not drafted.

Gil Brandt former Cowboys front office guru now with the NFL.com joined D&B:
1. Bama QB John Parker Wilson is a Top 5 QB of all Seniors in the nation
2. Gil thinks JPW will be more like 2006 season because of coaching. Another year under Saban and Jim McElwain the new QB Coach.
3. Dunaway wonders aloud if JPW has a good year, will that change the image of Major Applewhite as a good coach?

See you this afternoon from 1:00-6:00pm – Dunaway Out

I love that you lead with the Bama softball stuff. I think you have really come over to the dark side. Also my sister talked to Kelley Montalvo last night and she swears that ball NEVER hit her glove. However, that would have not mattered if Murphy hadn't screwed up and walked that girl. Plus I have NO idea why they changed Kelsi Dunne's pitch location for high inside to outside, they hadn't hit her ALL night. Bama has a long road back now
