A few Wednesday afternoon updates

Relatively speaking, this is one of the most pleasant August afternoons I can recall. So, to celebrate, here are a few updates on stories that have been in the news recently.

  • AOL Fanhouse is reporting Mikhail Torrance is breathing on his own now. The site that’s been on top of this one from the very beginning is saying Torrance suffered a heart attack Friday in Florida. Read the rest of their report here.
  • Dot Davidson made headlines nationally when her campaign doctored a photo involving Nick Saban. Apparently, the false endorsement didn’t do the trick. She did not make the runoff in the Bessemer mayor election after yesterday’s balloting. She got just 13 percent of the vote.
  • Speaking of Saban, how many college football coaches have a profile on Internet Movie Database? That’s IMDB for those in the know.
  • Two former Alabama basketball walk-ons are doing well at the University of New Orleans, according to Sports Illustrated.
