    After the 7th, Bama will be, unquestionably, the king.

Play on the field had less to do with it than most care to remember.
    And now - enter politics via committee...

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

    You need to read some of their boards just for humor. It's a study in unbounded arrogance. They're going to trample us. This board is a paragon of balanced discussion, in contrast. I've called other fan bases "delusional," based on BB behavior, but this display is ridiculous. We simply don't belong on the same field and don't have a chance. They save a lot of vitriol for prognosticators - oh, and the bookies...

    I have heard that many northern sports writers wanted to punish anything Alabama in 1966 due to the civil unrest in Alabama and the south in general. Alabama football was an easy target for the voters.
    I read an article once that said Jim Murray of the LA Times wrote an editorial back then saying due to our Civil Rights record, we did not deserve to be number one.

    The writer of the article then mentioned the number of blacks on his paper's staff. Suffice it to say it was a very small number. I think if you spelled it, it starts with a z.

    They do understand bookies set the point spread based on what will get an even amount of play, don't they?
