As someone who did not attend Alabama or Auburn, but who attended college in Chicago, I think I can offer an outsider's perspective here. I have on several occasions witnessed football fanaticism in this state taken to extreme levels. Football shouldn't be a cause to celebrate for anyone, except the players, students, and fans of that school. Should Gov. Riley indeed bring business back to the state, that is certainly a cause for joy. But does anyone think that is contingent on whether the Tide wins???
Lou,By God,that's the first SMART thing I have EVER heard you say from your little perch you like to sit upon while telling all of us your views...ROLL TIDE ROLL,sweet cheeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally Alabama where they need to be, in a game for the championship, have an awesome coach, great coaching staff, an the team just plain sick, they get better every year. An for all you who are not Bama fans better luck next year but this year you might as well jump on board to. Rolllllllll Tide. An Texas look out the tide has come in!
