@ Bluebee

Defensive End Frank Clark.  Not a terrible offense, but a felony none the less.  A felony should be a line in stone at the NCAA level!

Fight on! Fight on! Fight on, men!
Remember the Rose Bowl, we'll win then.
Go, roll to vict'ry! Hit your stride!
You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!

What is that gibberish Kingbee?  Surely you don't call that lame excuse a real college fight song do you?

"...University Of Michigan's Fight Song- Hail To The Victors!"


Why thankee Blue, That be right nice of the Wolverines to acknowledge the winner of the season opener in their fight song like that. :-D

Oh, by the way, has UM learned all they needed to learn about football? 

The reason I asked is that the Wolverines aren't playing the Tide in 2013.  ;) 

And what's with MU having two bye weeks next season? Is Michigan's extra bye week for court appearances, probation hearings, or what?  :police:  :-D

... Saban may be a money chaser but... He could stay at Alabama and... become a legend...

The biggest money chaser to ever coach at Bama was none other than Paul 'Bear' Bryant.  The Bear also had a thing about control.

Bryant's first NCAA head coaching job was at the University of Marryland.  He left after only one year when the Marryland Athletic Director reinstated a player who Bryant had suspended.

Next Bryant went to the University of Kentucky.  In 1950 Kentucky won SEC Championships in football under Paul Bryant and in basketball under Adolph Rupp.  The alumni association  gave Paul Bryant an engraved wrist watch as a token of their appreciation.  However they gave Adolph Rupp a new Cadillac.  The discrepancy was not lost on the Bear.  As soon as his contract was up he went to Texas A&M.  For a lousy 5 or 6K Kentucky lost a football legand.

As I recall, the salaries of the college coaches didn’t really start to go into the Stratosphere until the 1990s.  If Bear Retired in 1982, I would bet his salary at the time was on the order of 200K.  A lot of money back then, but still less than 10x a middle class income.  Nowday’s what does Saban make?  5.6 million is what I found.  Over 100x a middle class income.  How much money does Saban think he needs anyways?

I saw on Wikipedia that the Bear won a lawsuit back in 1962 for 3 million dollars!  Now that was a lot of money back then.

Pretty funny.  Where did Alabama come up with that fight song?  Sounds like something from a Barnum and Bailey event.

Or how's bout this, The Crimson Tide 41 Michigan 16.
Noter Dame 13 Michigan 6.
the Tide's game against Michigan was at a neutral field, the Irish's game was @ home.

But in true sporting fashion, during the second half the Tide dressed out and played three small cheerleaders and the whole clarinet section.

Noter Dame's bowl eligible opponents this season finished 3 out of 9 or 3W-6L
Bama's bowl eligible opponents finished 3W 4L.


Paul (Bear) Bryant today signed a 10-year contract as head football coach and athletic director at the University of Alabama, bringing to an end rumors and speculation that have been running the gossip gamut since midseason of 1956.

No salary terms were revealed, but the consensus is that Bryant is to receive $17,500 yearly.

"We have secured in our way of thinking the best football coach in the country," said Dr. Frank Rose, president-elect at Alabama.

Tuscaloosa News (Dec. 3rd 1957): Bryant Signs 10-Year Pact

Bryant always kept his salary one dollar less than the university president's.

But he made his real dough pitching Coca-Cola and Golden Flake tater chips.

THE ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE - 2013 BCS NATIONAL CHAMPIONS
« Reply #35 on: January 08, 2013, 12:56:27 AM »
Let the Swanee Tiger scratch; Let the Yellow Jacket sting;
Let the Georgia Bulldog bite; Alabama still is right;
And whether win or lose we smile, for that's Bama's fighting style:
You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!
Yea, Alabama! Drown 'em Tide!
Every Bama Man's behind you, hit your stride!
Go teach the Bulldogs to behave!
Send the Yellow Jackets to a Watery Grave!
And if a man starts to weaken, that's his shame:
For Bama's pluck and grit have writ her name in Crimson Flame.
Fight on! Fight on! Fight on, men!
Remember the Rose Bowl, we'll win then.
Go, roll to vict'ry! Hit your stride!
You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!

Blue, wh-che-think-bout-that-their-fight-song now?  :?

But hold your head up high buddy, #8 Michigan played Bama about as well as #1 ND did.

On, did any of you other people see the little short person in crimson and white come out with the team on Bama's side of the field last night?

Looked to me like the Leprechauns even knew what was in store for the Irish.  :-D

notre dame had no business being ranked #1 that was wishful thinking from the media. you can want something to be so bad but in the end it will not change the outcome

long live the SEC! i do not see a change in the BCS champions SEC will continue to dominate

just wait till the playoffs start and we have 3 of the 4 teams from the SEC or even all 4

I agree with Keith, Notre Dame had no business being ranked #1.  OSU was really the #1 team out there this year.  I still hope a playoff system is in the future.  It would be a fairer way of determining who’s number one (if that is important) and would result in better football games to watch (if that is important).  I would much rather watch an all SEC playoff (if that’s what it comes to) than the lopsided BCS championship games we’ve had to endure.
