[quote]And I absolutely loved how, in the middle of being attacked by two gators, these two start discussing swimming lessons and divorces. Come on now. And a chopper flying in a category 5 hurricane? Lulz.[/quote] So you're one of those... You must be a blast to discuss movies with. ...

re: Each SEC teams last season with less than 3 losses - RollTide1987
[quote]I think Fran would have deteriorated over time. His recruiting was absolutely bottom barrel bad. [/quote] In fairness, recruiting suffered heavily due to the NCAA investigation and the eventual sanctions. Don't forget that those players he recruited formed the backbone of that 2005 de...

re: Each SEC teams last season with less than 3 losses - RollTide1987
[quote]Bama was irrelevant from Stallings all the way til Saban. Don't act like Bama was only bad for a year or 2. [/quote] Alabama was also on probation from 1995-1999 and again from 2002-2007. We also made a piss poor coaching hire in Mike DuBose. Despite his best efforts, however, he managed...

re: Will Tennessee ever be elite again? - RollTide1987
[quote]Tennessee will come back, all the blue bloods do.[/quote] It's really difficult to call Tennessee a "blue blood" when they have precisely two national championships in the Poll Era to their name (1951 and 1998). Not to mention the fact that the run Tennessee went on from 1995-2001 was the...

re: OTD in 1861: First Manassas - RollTide1987
Talk about a brutal wake-up call. Both sides thought the war should be short, relatively bloodless, and decided in one major battle. While many of the professional soldiers leftover from the Mexican War knew what was in store, very few of your average Americans actually had an idea of what was...

re: Very telling story about John McCain in new book - RollTide1987
[quote]He was utterly and completely responsible for giving us jug ears[/quote] I think anyone who voted for McCain in the 2008 Republican primaries needs to be dragged under that umbrella as well. I was a Mitt Romney guy all the way and he was the only one I saw who had a prayer's chance of bea...

re: The Last Alabama vs LSU Game That Mattered Is On SEC Network - RollTide1987
I would actually argue that the 2012 Alabama-LSU game in Baton Rouge ended up mattering more. That was the game where LSU officially lost parity with Alabama. The series really hasn't been the same since. ...

re: The Alabama athletic department is a dump. - RollTide1987
[quote]Why not contribute all of that money back into your athletic program instead of just football? [/quote] Because that's all that matters in the end. I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't really like pretending to care about the other sports in our athletic department. ...

re: Will Tennessee ever be elite again? - RollTide1987
[quote]The late 90s-early 2000s Bama has proven to be an anomaly[/quote] Well, that era of Alabama football history was strongly driven by two probationary periods. The Antonio Langham scandal got us put on probation in '95 and the Albert Means scandal got us put on probation in '02. So from 19...

re: Barry Bonds not being in the HOF is absurd. - RollTide1987
[quote]I love this angle. So the Hall is basically BS and doesn't mean anything. It's just who the media liked and wanted to see rewarded..[/quote] I mean, yeah. Barry Bonds knows what he did and knows how dominant a player he was when he was in his prime. He doesn't strike me as the kind of gu...

re: Barry Bonds not being in the HOF is absurd. - RollTide1987
[quote]Canseco said he personally injected Pudge Rodriguez with steroids many times and nobody cared. In fact, Pudge got in on the first ballot.[/quote] The difference? Bonds admitted to doping allegations. Plus it doesn't help that he's always been hostile to the press and members of the press...

re: Gus and O are done after this year - RollTide1987
[quote]You guys hyped the shite out of Hurts until last year when Tua started. [/quote] You clearly have a selective memory. After losing to Clemson in the 2016-17 national championship game, the fan base became evenly split over Jalen Hurts and his ability to QB the offense. As the 2017 seaso...

re: Gus and O are done after this year - RollTide1987
[quote]But most teams can't have a shitty schedule and still recieve a mulligan every year. [/quote] Not our fault. We scheduled a Florida State team for our opening game that season that was supposed to be in competition for the national championship. I mean, shit, the game was #1 vs. #3. A ...
