The Alabama Way

It’s not so much that this chart bothers me…

… as it is that Alabama’s AD has whined about noon kickoffs and Greg McGarity’s been… well, Greg McGarity about noon kickoffs.

Alabama is concerned.

Shot.

Chaser.

A real murderer’s row there.  Hard to believe Alabama’s broadcast partner isn’t more sensitive to its concerns.

There are a couple of obvious solutions to the problem, but no doubt it’s easier to work the refs.

In perhaps the least surprising development in the state of Alabama ever,

A prosecutor wants to know why a University of Alabama fan who pleaded guilty to poisoning landmark oak trees at Auburn University isn’t making court-ordered restitution payments.

Harvey Updyke was ordered to appear in court Oct. 30 to explain himself, Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes told WRBL-TV.

Updyke served more than 70 days in jail in 2013 and was ordered to pay about $800,000 in restitution after admitting to poisoning trees at Toomer’s Corner in Auburn. Fans traditionally rolled the trees with toilet paper after a win, but the original oaks died after being doused with herbicide.

Updyke has paid less than $5,000 and often misses payments, Hughes said.

”We have been keeping an eye on his payments or more specifically, his non-payment, and he has made exactly two payments for a total of $200 in the past year…”
