Did you notice?
• Although former Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley was carted off the field during the Ravens’ 34-23 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night, he reportedly only had a bone bruise.
• Not only is the Alabama swimming and diving team opening its 2018-19 season Friday against Delta State at the Alabama Aquatic Center, but it’s the first meet of the NCAA season.
• The men’s golf team will face Oklahoma State since the Cowboys won the national title on their home course, as 10 of the 14 teams competing in this weekend’s Olympia Fields Country Club/Fighting Illini Invitational are ranked in the Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Preseason Top-25 Poll.
• New York Giants safety Landon Collins was quoted as saying about Sunday night’s game against the rival Dallas Cowboys: "If we stop Zeke (Elliott) and just put the ball into Dak's hands, I think we have a better shot at winning." Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott responded Thursday with two words: “Challenge accepted.”
