    The Great Alumni Challenge - WSJ article

    Interesting article about alumni of Alabama and Notre Dame. Bama wins 8-5.

    Of note: Bernie Madoff briefly attended Alabama, and Wikipedia was founded by Alabama's Jimmy Wales.

    There you go, no need to read anymore Bleacher Reports, tweet Clay Travis, or watch ESPN's Cowherd and Holtz. The WSJ has given the nation the definitive breakdown of these two storied programs who will clash in the National Championship Game. Game over and thanks to VT57 for the real scoop.

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

    Charlie Weis v Mike Shula. A draw at best.

    And Knute Rockne vs. Bear Bryant?

    How is that even a contest?

    Rockne - 3 National Titles, 105 Career wins
    Bryant - 6 National Titles, 323 Career wins


    And they gave the nod to Rockne?

    Obviously they aren't predicting the outcome based on this article. It's clearly meant to be humorous. But that doesn't mean we can't have fun or debate their findings.

    Glad they didn't have to drag Timothy Leary into the discussion.

    "There, that's proof, isn't it?. They all say I'm crazy."
    "They're crazy."
    "Then why don't you ground them?"
    "Why don't they ask?"
    "Because they're crazy, that's why."
    "Of course they're crazy. I just told you that. You can't let crazy people decide if you are crazy or not, can you?"

    I would give the push to Shula; he didn't have to go to court over his weight!

    I asked Timothy Leary, but he couldn't help me either.

    Shula's best game was a 31-3 win over Florida; Weis's a loss to USC. And getting the HC job at KU is several notches below NFL assistant.

    Geez
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again

    Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard.
