After the jump, a personal note!

I've been sick, really sick, sick enough that I basically curled up in bed with fluids and cough drops on Sunday and Monday. And it really bugged me that I wasn't able to keep up with posting here at Alligator Army.

So for the rest of this week, get ready for a deluge.

As always: Talk about any and all of this and/or anything else you have to say in the comments. Need more Alligator Army in your life? Find us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and download the SB Nation iPhone app to take us with you on the go.
