#RollTide: ’Bama Wins Everything!

Posted on | July 4, 2017 | Comments Off on #RollTide: ’Bama Wins Everything!

Yesterday, Donald Douglas tweeted me a USA Today story about Alabama being ranked No. 2 in their preseason football poll. It so happens that my son Jeff will be attending Tuscaloosa in the fall. Inspired to write a column, my research turned up a few interesting facts:

Spoiled brats at elite private colleges sure do spend a lot of Daddy’s money for the privilege of complaining about “patriarchy.” . . . Oberlin’s football team didn’t win a single game in 2016, which should be all the evidence you need that it’s nothing but a school for losers.
My whole family is still mourning Alabama’s loss to Clemson in the BCS title game. That’s what it means to be a Crimson Tide fan: Any season you don’t win the national championship is deemed a failure. And you want to know what the real irony is? Alabama has more diversity than Oberlin. For all their talk about “social justice,” only 5.7 percent of Oberlin’s students are black, whereas black students are 10.8 percent of enrollment at Tuscaloosa.


That’s a headline you‘ll never see in the New York Times. . . .

Read the whole thing at The Patriarch Tree.
