DON’T EAT THE CHEESE
Like mice eating cheese in a trap, some fans get lured into the talk radio trap. Come on guys, don’t eat the cheese. Tommy Tuberville was helping the attitude of our troops on his tour of the Middle East (or middle east Asia). Here is what he said about raising seven fingers after helping his team of soldiers:
"That was just a fun time, and there was a lot of kidding going between by myself and all the Alabama fans. We went over there to have a good time. We didn't go over there to jab anybody. You are talking about people that every day do something that is pretty dangerous."
The fact that proud Alabama fans were there having fun giving the rivalry back and fourth with the Auburn coach shows that it was done in good fun. I talked 5 hours Tuesday on our show (not that our callers are more enlightened) and nobody had a problem with it.
Those that went on the trip said that the coaches were doing anything to make the men and women laugh and have fun. Tuberville was signing everything from every school and any coach would have done that.
My daughter wears a "GOT 12?" t-shirt. I think it's just the joy of the rivalry.
This trip was about one uniform... that of the U.S. Soldier.
One of our callers lost his wife to cancer this week. Funeral today. Harry from Trussville is a big Auburn fan and so was his wife. To paraphrase the late Jim Fyffe, “Say a silent prayer for Harry today”.
EARLY SIGNING PERIOD
Yes I agree with the SEC Coaches. I want an early signing period but it should come in August before the start of the season. The SEC coaches are discussing a period that would allow players sign in December.
JOHN PARKER WILSON
The Athlon Magazine cover boy is also being talked about as a difference maker for Alabama this season. I agree. If JPW returns to his 2006 form, Alabama will contend in the SEC West and I think it will happen.
