A Season Like No Ohter Greetings, fellow Alabama fans! Yes, I know the blog hasn't been updated recently, but who has time to write when one can revel in this glorious football season? And glorious it has been. When the biggest complaints are the margin of victory, life is good!
Comments like, "Alabama beat them so bad, they should have had negative points!", show that we are in the heady stratosphere of football heaven. There are worries like why did Tua get injured (shakes fist skyward), what kind of nut do you have to be to imagine the SEC officials favor 'Bama, and the always popular how will Alabama's defense recover from losing a slew of guys (they just do, don't worry.) But the season is not yet over.
