Ha Ha Clinton-Dix expected to be healthy for Bama’s bowl game

A health issue shouldn’t keep Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from ending his turbulent 2013 season on a high note, Nick Saban said Sunday.

Shortly after the loss to Auburn in the regular-season finale, the Alabama defensive back underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair an injured meniscus in his knee.  The surgery and subsequent rehab could keep the junior off the practice field initially, but should have no impact on his availability for the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma Jan. 2.

Ha Ha will be fine,” Saban said Sunday. “I think that he had a scope, which probably in two weeks he’ll be ready to practice and go again.

“We’re not going to rush him back, but I certainly think he’s going to be OK [for the bowl game].”

Clinton-Dix is tied for the team lead in interceptions with two, and is fourth in tackles with 46.  He’s started nine of the 10 games in which he’s played, with the two missed games resulting from a suspension for receiving impermissible benefits from a member of the football program who was subsequently dismissed.

    His real name is HaSean, his grandmother couldn’t pronounce it properly so she started calling him HaHa and hence the “nickname”.

    Wow…you make it your mission every day I see to come on this blog and find something derogatory to say. Guess the only way to explain what brings about this type of meaningless dialect is jealousy. That is evident by the lack of intelligent thinking has allowed you to ignore the fact that most of the players on our teams down here are a mixture of young men from all over this country.

    Yes thats right this will be the 5th year in a row (start counting the fingers on one hand and don’t leave out the thumb) that a team from “alabammy” is playing for the BCS so don’t feel bad for us rednecks….
