Among the soda bottles and lost basketballs floating down the Vermilion River, there are things much odder and mysterious.Bottle? Check. Powder? Purple or gold. Check. Offensive plan? Check.
The Vermilion River could be called a one-way hoodoo highway.
Over the years, more than four dozen ordinary, little brown plastic prescription bottles have been found in the murky water -- each filled with blue or pink powder and strange, rambling spells meticulously written on scraps of paper.
UPDATE: Here at halftime on Saturday evening, I think Saban might like to change a spell or two.
