Bama sports writer redeems himself
I was livid when Mobile (Ala.) sportswriter Neal McCready voted Texas ninth on his AP ballot, behind Louisville, Utah, Boise State and Iowa. Well, apparently I wasn’t the only one who was upset. McCready’s e-mail inbox was flooded with more than 1,100 e-mails from angry Longhorn fans. McCready decided he’d better pay close attention to the Cal game and, following their narrow victory, moved Texas up to fifth. I blasted him when he was wrong, so in fairness, let me praise him for taking a closer look and making an adjustment. Champagne and roses, Mr. McCready.
