Jax State Is #FCSCocky Today #FearTheBeak! #BlowSoutherners UPDATE: Bisons Defeat JSU 37-10 as NDSU Claims Fifth Straight Title

  True story: One afternoon when I was a sophomore at Jacksonville (Ala.) State University, two of my buddies and I left Jack Hopper Dining Hall and headed over toward the student center to shoot some pool. Just as we were approaching the front doors of what is now the Theron Montgomery Building, the doors […]

Did I Forget to Mention #RollTide?

Alabama’s Tim Williams sacks Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook. Thursday afternoon, my son Jefferson and I were watching #1 Clemson beat #4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, and we began to discuss the upcoming Cotton Bowl game between #2 Alabama and #3 Michigan State. My father graduated at Tuscaloosa in the Class of 1951, and […]

OK, If #BlackLivesMatter Affects SEC Football, We Have a Serious Problem

University of Missouri football players are threatening a boycott until university president Tim Wolfe resigns, but considering the way they’ve been playing this season (4-5 overall, 1-5 in the Southeastern Conference), it’s not as if this will have any impact on the SEC title picture.

Doug Hagin accused me of gratuitously invoking “Roll, Tide” yesterday when I pointed out that tuition at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., is $45,620 a year, compared to $9,450 a year for in-state students ($23,950 for out-of-state) at the University of Alabama. My point was, why would anyone spend all that money to attend a snooty […]

Q.E.D.: @MaxBoot Is a Lying Swindler

Every honest man despises.@MaxBoot, who is a lying swindler. Quod erat demonstrandum. @AmPowerBlog — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) August 24, 2013 Daniel J.

But Their Football Team Still Sucks

And their women are still ugly: Auburn University has the most conservative student body of any college in the nation, according to the Princeton Review’s annual rankings, released [Aug. 5].
