No 2 Minute Warning:
Don Draper missed one heck of a moment in college football history.
I’m a big fan of the show Mad Men, which aired the latest season premiere Sunday night. In the episode we see our favorite ad man Don Draper share an elevator ride with someone who works in his office that he barely recognizes. It turns out this employee of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, Bob Benson in accounts, is able to get tickets to the 1968 Cotton Bowl between Alabama and Texas A&M. Benson appears to admire Don’s work and wants to try and emulate his success. This will surely be a story that develops throughout the season now that Peggy Olsen has moved on to bigger and better things after years as Don’s upcoming apprentice of sorts.
Don appears to have little time to waste on sports throughout the series. It just doesn’t seem like his thing. Don would rather be smoking a cigarette, sipping on an Old Fashion (neat) and either coming up with new ad campaigns on a napkin or scoping out his latest woman to fancy...
BEST OF MAXIM
Alabama is coming off something of a “whew” weekend. Things looked gloomy as the Crimson Tide lost the first two games of a series against Arkansas, but Bama rebounded to take the third game, maintain “touch” with LSU in the Southeastern Conference Western Division, and start this week on a winning note.
The Alabama Crimson Tide took to the field for their first scrimmage of the year, but they did not impress Nick Saban at all.
Arie Kouandjio could wind up starting at left guard, right next to his brother, Cyrus, who is Alabama's starting left tackle.
Brandon Ivory didn’t have a huge statistical game when Alabama met Georgia in the Southeastern Conference Championship tilt last December in Atlanta, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have a lot of eyes watching him. That’s because he found himself on the front line in the struggle.
