    Should we thank A&M at halftime for hiring Fran?

    The A & M fanbase was nearly intolerable when they snaked Fran from us. We all know how that turned out.

    Why not have a little fun at halftime, and formally thank them for relieving us of the Nasal Wonder? If that might seem a little too "in your face", maybe something more subtle would be better. Like a collage of Fran photos up on the big screen...

    Now is time for honoring the positive connections between Bama & aTm & Bama. Coach Bryant, Coach Stallings, Coach Jackie Sherill, & Coach John David Crow would echo Coach Saban:


    Oh, Susanna. Oh, don't you cry for me, for I come from Alabama with a banjeaux on my knee. G'wan to Louisiana my true love for to see.

    #TrollTide you guys.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    I'm guessing we will see some signs in the stands.

    Fran does not deserve to have his name mentioned in BDS ever again...

    Considering the two coaches who followed him , no

    I don't want the name of the backstabbing, lying, schlepping, hypocritical weasel mentioned in the cathedral of my Saturday religion. Ever. He shouldn't even be allowed to come there as a sideline commentator after he gets canned at SW Texas Whatever.

    For that matter, I put Sherrill pretty much in the same basket after he called a press conference in 2000 while at MSU to announce he would not take the Alabama job (which he was never going to get - talk about arrogance).

    I remember how sick I felt when that happened now I'm glad it did. Everything happens for a reason.

    No Fran=Mike Price
    Mike Price canned=Shula
    Shula fired=Saban

    If Fran had held the rope, we would have never gotten in the mess we were in that led to the hiring of Coach Saban. So I would personally like to thank Fran for starting the domino effect that led to the most successful years since Coach Bryant retired. Thank you Dennis Francione for being a lying scumbag. You are responsible for a great Bama football team.
