“As much as I love the guy,” Leard said, “now he’s a politician.”

Tommy Tuberville’s former players range anywhere from bemused to disappointed over the candidate running to be Alabama’s next US Senator.

I’m not really sure why they don’t get it.  He’s still recruiting.  All that’s changed is he’s recruiting a different type of person.

7th place? That’s it?

I am so disappointed to learn that Nick Saban wasn’t the difference in the Alabama US Senate election.

Where’s your school spirit, Alabamians?

If there’s one thing you don’t mess with in Alabama…

it’s Roll Tide.

Maybe somebody knew what they were doing with this write-in instruction video.

The Moore-Jones Senate race has been entertaining, to say the least.  The perfect capper would be if a Nick Saban write-in vote swung the election.

Alabama is 130th out of 130 FBS teams in a statistic called opponent penalties, which means officials are calling the fewest number of penalties against Alabama’s opponents compared to other teams in college football. If you need a trend: Alabama was last in college football in this category in 2016, 102nd in 2015, 123rd in 2014.

It’s gotta be some sort of conspiracy.

Scott Cochran’s got time on his hands.

When your team’s beaten its last two opponents by 122 points — There are 51 FBS teams that still haven’t scored that many in 2017.” — the strength coach looks for things to do on the sideline, ’cause he’s getting bored.

Roll, Bravos!

Well, this is a beaut.


The truly great thing about this is that he didn’t even manage to use the right font for the “A”.

That’s the Braves’ font.  Bless his heart, as we like to say in these parts.
