    Taking a moment to remember someone...

    The "menu" thread below got me to thinking about Rich and how much I miss him. I always looked forward to his menu for the day and the ridiculous outfits he put on the pets. I'm sure this year would be a big blast, especially with a wife who was a ND grad...

    Yah, he would've had a blast this year!

    RIP Rich.

    Great post Earle....Rich sure did have "Tough Love" -- and is much missed

    I have been thinking about my Dad too. He left us a month after the BCSNCG vs Texas -- he would so love a chance to beat Notre Dame who he hated far worse than Auburn, UT or LSU.

    He got his Masters and Doctorate in TTown -- and brought his son up right. One of his students came to me at his funeral -- and told me that Coach Bryant was waiting for him ..... and that he'd be in good hands.....

    Who knows but he's sure been on my mind all week long.....

    to all of the Bama fans no longer with us -- who taught us how to love The Tide -- remember them tonight......

    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    Rich was a heckuva guy. It's a tribute to him that a bunch of people, many of whom only knew him on this very message board, are thinking of him. I think that's what most of us want: to be remembered and beloved.

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.

    To all those Tidefans we have lost this year, RIP and I'll tip my glass to you just before kickoff. Salute.
    Please stand behind our troops or feel free to stand in front of them.

    I was only here a couple of years with Bayou, but I inevitably miss his wit, humor, and class a couple of times a month when I log on TFs. He had to be a special guy.
