08:13 AM ET 02.28 | Here's one way the rich get richer in the SEC. Alabama is still waiting for the new set of dumbbells that will soon fill the racks of its brand new, $9 million weightlifting palace. That certainly hasn't troubled strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran, who said the 37,000-square foot building, which opened earlier this month, will "never be complete" to him because "you always have work to do." More importantly, the speakers arrived on time. "That was the No. 1 thing I asked for," Cochran said. ... "[You] have them every day, you all have a job, you do something for a living. Those are the days I crank that music so loud they can't hear anything. So loud they can't even hear me."

OK...I'll go ahead and say it...
The new set of dumbbells won't arrive until the 2013 recruiting class arrives for summer practices.

Geeez. Can't these guys already just rip trees out of the ground? Oh wait. We know they can bench press Manti Te'o (and his entire former team). That last game was delightful.

Some of the dumbbells will be lifting cans of deer antler spray.

I don't know, probably on the beach (with real girls). But where was your pope? At least our cardinal colored uniforms stand for something besides molesting.
