    On the one hand, the local chamber of commerce is trying to raise money and help its local membership. On the other hand, things like this provide a local forum that certainly will not hurt Alabama recruiting in the area. It does not surprise me that TN fans with no connection to local business would be upset.

    IMO, the financial health / development of their local community should be the greater priority.

    If that University burned down tomorrow I couldn't be happier. They earned every bit of their misery on or off the field. I'm just glad we can be a big part of it.

    I should have said that since they may actually burn down the school to collect the insurance money at this point.

    Except that D-1 prospects in east Tennessee are very few. It is far from being a recruiting "hot-bed". Therefore, the recruiting arguement they make is invalid.

    Outside of Memphis, Tennessee in general is not a recruiting hotbed. They've had to go into GA and FL for years.The 2014 class out of TN will actually be a very good class for their state, so I think some of their insecurities are coming out.

    My birthday present from my wife.

    The viles up here in Knoxville are still going bonkers over the Saban talk in Athens, TN, especially the billboard on I-75. One of her many vol fan coworkers just can't understand it, but knowing what big Bama fans we are (she's a converted UT grad who's now a diehard Bama fan just like all my wives) he got these tix for free for her from a good friend of his on the Athens COC. Needless to say I will be making a nice contribution to Athens and to Nick's Kids for the event. It ain't easy living amongst all these vol fans but it sure is fun to kick them harder when they're as low as can be.

    She told me I have to say that she's my only wife.

    What I find ironic about this is that their boy TennStud heard Saban speak a few years ago and he had nothing but glowing comments. See below:
