Coach Nick Saban, A Legend Created By Desperate Tide Fans!

I'm sure you, like most of us, have seen the movie Forrest Gump. One scene from that movie shows young Forrest playing football at Alabama for the legendary Bear Bryant. You may have also heard references to the "Crimson Tide" in old 70's songs, and so forth, but most people do not understand the importance of college football in the South—in the old south in particular. Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Florida take this love or fascination with college football to a higher level, but in the heart of that region, the state of Alabama is capital of college football. Within the borders of this state are two universities that have the highest importance to college football: The University of Alabama and Auburn University. The fans of these two teams equate there respective university to that of religious institutions. Before you laugh, or dare to say that I exaggerate the truth, let me assure you that people have lost their lives in incidents where anger and rage between fans of these two schools boiled over into bloody fights and outright assaults. There have even been documented divorces as the result of mixed marriages. By mixed marriage I mean a married couple who’re fans of opposite teams. Men and women have also lost jobs, due to being too vocal about how bad their team beat the other. Similar incidents became such a common problem that both schools ended the tradition of playing each other in the sport of football! The two schools met and physically buried a hatchet to vow to end the hatred. Alabama and Auburn did not play each other in football for more than 40 years until it was again scheduled in the 1940s. From the 1940s through to the 1970s, the University of Alabama had more success with more big name players going on to the professional ranks, and during this time, Alabama has accumulated most of its 12 National Championship titles. Alabama also holds the college football record for the most Bowl appearances and wins. Auburn, on the other hand, had one National Championship in 1957 and 2 Heisman Trophy winners, Pat Sullivan and Vincent "Bo" Jackson. Not quite as successful as Alabama, but always a threat on the field each season. One fact that has transcended the love and appreciation of Alabama football into something that closely resembles Idol Worship, or outright religion, to the Alabama Fan is the arrival of Coach Paul W. "Bear Bryant."—The University of Alabama in physical and human form. This brings us to the development or transformation of the Alabama fan. The success and tradition of this man is, without a doubt, the cornerstone of what we now know as the "Alabama Fan." From 1958 through 1981 Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant not only ruled the University of Alabama, but was more powerful than Governor George C. Wallace, himself, within the state of Alabama. Now that you get the point of a quickly painted picture—a sketch, if you will—of Alabama/Auburn football history, I believe I can show you why Coach Nick Saban is being treated as if he has a coaching record like Jimmy Johnson or Joe Pa. Since the passing of the greatest Alabama hero, Alabama has had various troubles trying to fill the shoes of Bear Bryant. In a nut shell, that has been the downfall of Alabama football. They have been trying to find the reincarnate equivalent of Bear Bryant without accepting the fact that he is dead. Without going through all the boring history of these failed Bear Bryant replacements, I will say that the closest they have come to the Bear was when Coach Gene Stallings brought home the 12th National Championship title in 1992. Since then it has been one disaster after the other. Enter Coach Nick Saban. Alabama fans can be suckered in by apparent success while searching for a coach. During this latest episode they tried their best to woo Coach Steve Spurrior away from the University of South Carolina. After they realized Spurrior was nobody's dummy, they moved on to Saban and then West Virginia's Coach Rodriguez. After Coach Rodriguez turned Bama down for the job Alabama AD Mal Moore held a press conference to announce that he would only hire a proven winner for the head coach position. That meant they could only hire someone who had previously won some type of championship in football. Finally, after weeks of embarrassment, the job was taken by Coach Nick Saban, who gladly took the money and ran after he realized his time was short at the end of the Miami Dolphins season. The price tag for Coach Nick Saban? Try 32 Million Dollars. Is that not desperate? Is that not the biggest gamble on a "Proven Winner" Coach with a 91-42-1 record that boasts a shared 2003 National Championship at LSU? LSU had a strength of schedule ranking of 29 that year. If you can understand this, you may be able to understand all the fuss over Coach Nick Saban. The cross state rival of Alabama, Auburn University, has been on the rise since the arrival of Coach Pat Dye, Bo Jackson, and other very talented people. Auburn continued to grow over the years and now Coach Tommy Tuberville "The Riverboat Gambler" has built a strong Auburn Tiger football team that has dominated the Alabama Crimson Tide. Currently the Auburn Tigers hold a 5 year win streak over Alabama with win number 6 on the horizon—a streak Auburn has never before been able to accomplish. The Alabama fan, like never before, has been in a panic-driven state of mind that resulted in the firing of their head coach, Mike Shula, who was once their very own Quarterback. Coach Shula suffered the "Fear the Thumb" 5th loss to Auburn that was too much for even the Alabama trustee's to stomach. They fired Coach Shula one year after a 10 win season and contract extension raise to satisfy the blood lust of the out of control and impatient Tide Fan. I hope you can now understand why such a build up over Coach Nick Saban has occurred, and how desperation at the University of Alabama could create a legend before his time in Coach Nick Saban. Imagine the luck of being in the right place, at the right time, during the right set of circumstances such as Coach Saban and walk away with a cool 32 Million? Wow!

Racial slurs are wrong in any form!

Racial Slurs are wrong in any form, from anyone!I do not understand how one race can be shielded from racial slurs while other races are free game for any type of verbal assault.When someone uses a word to belittle another person, that word has been uttered to offend.Just because a particular race has suffered more to racism than another does not give them a free pass to turn around and offend someone else, nor does it privilege you to use the particular offensive word against another member of your own race.Furthermore, to elevate or decrease the degree of hate or offensiveness of a word based solely on skin color, race, religion or gender would be prejudice in and of itself.How can you value one persons pain more than another's?Lets stop splitting hairs, racial slurs are wrong in any form.Edwardsthegreat

Finebaum loses stock- Coach Nick Saban

Paul Finebaum has completely lost his objectivity while under the Saban Spell that has quickly consumed the Tide Nation. He boldly, if not arrogantly announces the best Alabama Head Football Coach since the Paul Bear Bryant days. It is very hard for me to believe any average Joe Six-pack sports fan would make such a wild prediction, least of all Paul Finebaum. Has he forgotten Coach Gene Stallings? Has he forgotten the National Championship Gene Stallings brought to the University of Alabama? Paul Finebaum has also bought into the notion that Coach Nick Saban will indeed provide the Tide Nation with it's 13th National Title within the incredible window of time of only 4 years. That is a fantastic prediction. That my friends is a bold sign of faith that Paul Finebaum really believes that Coach Nick Saban, and the Alabama Crimson Tide will be the perfect match. Therefore, all Alabama needs is Coach Nick Saban, and all Coach Nick Saban needs is the University of Alabama.How arrogant!Coach Nick Saban has a NCAA career record of 91-42-11 hotly argued share of the 2003 National Championship.WOWScoot over Paul Bear Bryant, Joe Pa, Bobby Bowdon, Steve Spurrior, and Eddie Robinson, Coach Nick Saban was all Alabama needed!

I could see the excitement reach a fever pitch as it has with Paul Finebaum and the drunk Tide girl that draped Saban and was later arrested for DUI if Bama had landed Coach Steve Spurrior, but Nick Saban? This is a Coach who did a great job at LSU, a One Major University State filled with talent and very little recruitment competition. Also Saban inherited a talent rich team recruited by Coach Gerry Dinardo. He hardly started from scratch.

And all it cost was 30 + Million dollars and defaulting on a previous contract with a Coach that really loved Alabama and was there when Alabama needed him the most. But all is fair in a contract buy out.

Paul Finebaum has really set the bar high for Coach Nick Saban, but even more interesting than that is that Finebaum has set the bar extremely high for his own credibility.

I knew Paul Finebaum was a big fan of the University of Alabama, but I was shocked that he would so quickly lose all objectivity. We all heard his 11-2 Auburn Who? Comments, and other ridiculous and disrespectful comments on other teams and coaches. I could chalk it up to a lashing out in frustration, a sense of desperation while being totally dominated and drowned by the success of the cross state rival in Auburn University, which Paul so fondly refers to as the "Red Headed Step Child University."

I can imagine in this same way of reasoning that Paul Finebaum and his Hallelujah Saban Quartet must be fantasizing about the other SEC coaches like Tubberville, Fullmer, Spurrior, Nutt, Meyer, Richt and Miles calling a meeting to throw in the towel since Alabama now has the incredible Coach Nick Saban. Yes, Mr. Finebaum I'm sure that they are!

Of all the people who have commented on this latest Alabama Head coach hiring, I believe former Alabama Quarterback Andrew Zow was the most objective and used a heaping amount of common sense when he made his comment that the Tide will improve with Saban as the coach, but he did not go overboard with his opinion or predictions. When asked if Auburn or Tubberville should be shaken that Nick Saban is now the Alabama Coach, Zow stated, "Not at all! I don't think they would be shaken at all, they are a winning program, they are proven. They know what they need to do to keep their program going. Alabama on the other hand is still building their program back up to where it needs to be. Tubberville on the other hand has been winning, beating Alabama the past 5 years."Now I believe Andrew Zow is being objective, not trying to belittle anyone's program but instead looking at the facts and trying to make logical predictions based on that.

What surprises me the most is the total blind faith of Paul Finebuam, and the Tide hopeful. What are they seeing that the rest of the country fails to see? Did they not see how Coach Saban acted as he met the fans at the airport? Or at the press conference? I did not see excitement at all. I saw a man that looked like he was ready to cash his check in a bank line.

Do you all actually believes he gives a rip about Alabama other than the ridiculous lottery score they are providing him with?

Sex, Lies, and Roadside Bombings!

Sex, Lies, and Roadside Bombings!

There is no way you can escape hearing that the American death toll has reached 3,000. The news media has held their breath long enough for the number to reach 3,000 and now they are reminding everyone how many soldiers we have lost in the Iraq war. Congressmen grimace as they shake their heads in blame. Senators scramble to be the first to proclaim that America is losing the Iraq war. Protesters light candles and wear armbands to show their support of withdrawing our troops, and casting blame on the president for ever daring to protect the citizens from terrorist attacks on our own soil.

It must be devastating to the families of soldiers killed in the line of duty. Giving everything they had in the greatest of sacrifices. This selfless act demands the respect of all Americans. Every single soldier lost on the battlefield is a sacrifice in the name of freedom. Freedom is not cheap; it is paid for with the blood of our fallen.

All we ever hear from the media is how horrible the war is going. How we are losing this war, how we should have never invaded Iraq. How much we underestimated such a vicious enemy.

The media has acted for the benefit of our enemy as a propaganda machine doing everything in its power to make the American people believe we are losing this war. The national media market has portrayed the American soldier as a barbaric thug, killing innocent Iraqi citizens in an illegal war designed to profit from the regions oil supplies.

The media wants you to believe we are losing this war, crunching numbers to highlight all the negative realities of war, without showing any positive influences we have had during this war.

3,000 troops Dead!!!

Hey, let’s look at some numbers the media doesn’t want you to think about!

42,116 people were killed in traffic accidents in 2001. That’s 114 a day!

The common Flu kills 20,000 people a year in the United States!

15,517 people are murdered on average in the United States each year!!!!!

17, 229 people die from falls each year!

3,306 people drown by accident in the United States each year!!!!

3,369 people die from smoke, flame, or fire in the United States each year!

19,457 people die from accidental poisoning “drugs” in the U.S. each year!!

2, 855 people die from complications of surgery and medical treatment each year!

The Media wants you to believe that 3,000 American soldiers dying in a war is much too costly, and not worth fighting terrorism over.

Let’s crunch these numbers!

Iraq War
3,000 American Troops Dead in Iraq
Almost 4 years in combat. Average KIA 50 per month

The American media needs to start reporting the truth, whatever the truth may be. The fact is that the American citizen is a lot smarter than the spin doctors of the out of control media, and we are just about fed up with all the lies.

Report the news or get out of the business.
