The Tuscaloosa News: Goes nuts over Julio Jones and the rest of the 'Bama class.
For the first time in a couple of years there are reason to smile at the U. ESPNU has the 'Canes class ranked as the number one ranked class in all of the land, yes even better then fat boy at Notre Dame and the king of the text messaging that leads the Gators.

Other ranking services have the 'Canes in the top five, but there is nothing negative you can say about the Randy Shannon's first true recruiting class.
Fifty years ago today, the face of Manchester United Football Club was forever changed. On their way back from a European Cup game against Red Star, the plane carrying the team stopped in Munich to refuel. On take off the plane crashed killing 23 of the 44 passengers on the plane including Manchester United players: Geoff Bent, Roger Byrne, Eddie Colman, Duncan Edwards, Mark Jones, David Pegg, Taylor, and Liam 'Billy' Whelan. At the time Manager Matt Busby was also seriously injured and would end up spending three months in the hospital. At the time Busby called the team one of his best.
This weekend when United play their cross town rivals Manchester City, both sides are going to wear kits from the era honoring the tragic events in Munich.
Today United fans all over the world should take a minute and remember those who lost their lives during the tragic event.
