Get in line.
- Only three SEC schools made it through the regular season without an injury to their starting quarterback.
- Here we go – jumping on Alabama’s defensive woes against spread attacks.
- My favorite part of Bill Connelly’s advanced box score from the Georgia-Georgia Tech game? “Projected Pt. Margin: Georgia Tech +3.0 | Actual Pt. Margin: Georgia +7“. But, coaching!
- Here’s a shocker: “Every public Division I university in Alabama experienced athletic spending per college athlete grow at a faster rate than academic spending per student from 2007 to 2011…”
- Is an Iron Bowl rematch a feature, or a bug?
- Great story on Tim Worley, including this quote from Worley about one-time roommate Bill Goldberg: “He’s one of those people who would give you the shirt off his back. But when you heard he was going into wrestling, you’d say, ‘I figured something like that.’”
- Even if this isn’t a fair comparison, it’s not helping Boom that it’s being made in the first place.
- Kliff Kingsbury on his game day attire: “If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good.”

I know you shouldn’t tar an entire fan base because of the actions of a few crackpots, but between Harvey Updyke and this bitch, damn, Alabama, just damn.
No turkey in this buffet.
By Buy a ticket to the Chattanooga game, Tide fans, and they’ll throw in a $10 concession voucher… plus a Nick Saban photograph!
When you’ve got a big staff, it’s easy to lose track of everyone’s responsibilities. Now we know who the coach in charge of paying players at Alabama
Wakey, wakey, football fans.

Quite the scheduling conflict my brethren in Birmingham face.
Choosing between the Book of Life and Nick Saban? Man, that’s a tough call.
UPDATE: You knew there had to be a topper, right? Right.
Among the members of the congregation is SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, who was in attendance at Rosh Hashanah services. Apparently the edict applies to him, too.
I’m fine with gun ownership in general, but damn if this doesn’t make me uneasy:
The policy comes a little more than two weeks after Alabama Act 2013-283 went into effect on August 1. The law, which was written as SB-286 and signed into law in May, overhauled the law of the land concerning guns in some places and clarified them in others. The waters are muddied, though, about where the rights of gun owners end and the rights of property owners begin.
In one area, the law says gun owners with a concealed carry permit are allowed to carry weapons to athletic events, regardless of whether they’re hosted professionally or by a school. However, the law also gives property owners the right to ban firearms in places where there are strong security measures, such as guards.
The discrepancy has left many asking which part of the law supersedes the other — are gun owners allowed to carry at athletic events that have additional security measures, like to a football game in Jordan-Hare or Bryant-Denny, or not?
The matter may have to be decided in court. Many gun owners have read the law and believe they’d be in the right to have their pistols on campus…
I mean, guns, tailgating and college football. What could possibly go wrong?
Let me preface this post by saying that in no way do I think this is representative of the Alabama fan base, but, damn, y’all, this dude has shit for brains:
“He’s a winner, he just does what he wants to do,” says Lee Allen, an Alabama fan from Decatur. “He’s kind of like Hitler. He’s a dictator. He brought us back to the top and I figure we’re going to be here for a while. Money well spent.”
Wait, what? Hitler? You mean that as a compliment? “Yeah,” Allen says in between discreetly spitting tobacco juice into a water bottle in the lobby.
Of course he did, bless his heart.
