The University of Alabama has announced classes are canceled and school operations are suspended as of 3:15 p.m. today.

They will resume at 10 a.m. Friday. About one to four inches of snow is expected to accumulate in Tuscaloosa today.

We’ve got two more photos for you to see, including a really good script A, which is the Crimson Tide logo.

This is inside Bryant-Denny Stadium and gives you the best indication yet of how much snow has stuck at Alabama today.

From this phot0, Bryant-Denny looks a little like Soldier Field in Chicago of Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

In light of the Te’o girlfriend hoax, you knew this was coming, didn’t you?

How long did you figure we would have to wait until this happened? You knew somebody eventually would say the hoax involving Manti Te’o was at least partially responsible for Notre Dame losing so badly to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game.

By the way, the Twitter post above comes from an organization that claims no affiliation with Notre Dame or the Fighting Irish football team. It’s just a fan group.

I’m not buying the hoax affected the outcome of that game. Notre Dame’s own athletics director, Jack Swarbrick, said only a couple of coaches and a couple of Manti Te’o's teammates knew his girlfriend dying of leukemia was a hoax until Deadspin.com’s story Wednesday. If only a handful of people knew about it when Notre Dame and Alabama kicked off, how could it have kept the Irish from playing competitively?

Marc Torrence, the assistant sports editor of The Crimson White, is kind enough to let us use his snow picture this afternoon of Bryant-Denny Stadium.

It’s a cool shot, and we wanted to make sure you saw it.

Devonta Pollard’s two alley-oop dunks against Mississippi State

Alabama freshman Devonta Pollard of Porterville, Miss., returned to his home state Wednesday night and had two terrific alley-oop dunks in the Tide’s 75-43 win over Mississippi State. We’ve got video below of both dunks, courtesy of the Southeastern Conference.

He finished with seven points and a pair of steals.

Amari Cooper’s on-field interview after the BCS win

Tired of BCS videos yet? I didn’t think so. Here’s Amari Cooper‘s interview with the SEC Digital Network following Alabama’s 42-14 win over Notre Dame.

Just a thought I have every time I see Amari Cooper: Doesn’t he look about 14 but act about 29?

Alabama coach Nick Saban typically doesn’t allow freshmen to do interviews, except in situations in which he gets overruled, such as the BCS game. He said he began this policy at Michigan State when he star freshman receiver, Plaxico Burress, gave an inflamatory interview. I’m thinking Cooper could handle doing interviews better than Burress did.

The University of Alabama campus is getting some snow.

As you can see from the photo to the right, Daily Bama Blog contributor Brett Hudson is planning on nailing somebody with a snow ball. Please don’t hurt anybody, Brett.

According to weather.com, the snow will remain steady until about 2 p.m. when it changes to rain, with an accumulation of about half an inch. The National Weather Service office in Birmingham is prediction total snow accumulation of one to four inches.
