The website has come under some sort of attack by some useless individual who has nothing better to do.

No need to worry as I have a full backup of everything. It seems they attacked one database which happens to be the Alabama football database. I had to go in and remove a few thing that you are accustomed to seeing on the site until I can get HostGator to find out how to stop the attack. Then I will restore a backup of the database and all will be fine.

The pages affected are All-state, All-stars and the Polls. I have made some changes that will temporary until all the issues are resolved. Some of the information will not appear on your screen for a while.

Please be patient and I think this can be fixed. I hope so anyway. Seems it is always something.

If you see any spam or some unusual ads popping up please let me know here or via email at

Thank you, David. I know it's a lot of work to keep this thing up and running.

I have everything back under control as far as the spam attack. I am sorry for what happened if you visited the site during the attack. It took me a day or so to come up with a plan and to get everything back to a stable environment.

But all is safe and secure once again. No data or information was lost to my knowledge. Later today I will fix the final piece and the all-state and all-state teams will show the missing information. The polls will also have that information reinstated.

Again I am sorry if you visited the website Friday or Saturday but all is well for now. I will put some measures in place to try and prevent it from happening in the future. Seems it is always something around here to work on.
