Starting the project seems to have generated more feedback than doing nothing at all.

City workers completed the first two phases of a renovation project involving Paterson Field but have stalled on the biggest portion of the renovation while awaiting funding.

City and county officials who announced in September their plans to move the high school basketball regionals to Garrett Coliseum have now reneged on their promise just weeks before the event.

Coliseum workers who spent thousands of dollars in preparation for the weeklong high school event at the state-owned facility are left to ponder what politics were served by moving the event back to Alabama State University, an organization that has lost – and now regained – the regionals on two separate occasions.

There were no last-minute heroics in the 2016 Raycom Media Camellia Bowl. But like the first two, there was plenty of excitement.

The third edition wasn’t decided until a final field goal attempt sailed wide right with 1:48 remaining allowing Appalachian State to pull out a 31-28 win over Toledo in front of an announced crowd of 20,300 at Cramton Bowl on Saturday night.

It must have sounded like hype to Josh Thomas.

The Appalachian State sophomore strong safety had dedicated himself to making more of an impact this season after playing a limited role on special teams in 2015 but when the season opener at ninth-ranked Tennessee rolled around, Thomas didn’t even play on defense.

The Raycom Media Camellia Bowl honors its annual Alabama Football Legend Award recipient at a luncheon the day before the game, but former All-American linebacker Woodrow Lowe wasn’t sure why he had been selected.

“I am truly honored,” Lowe said before spending a lot of time telling why he didn’t deserve the award. “From a humble heart and with heartfelt appreciation, gratitude and thanks to the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.”
