I harbored a lot of resentment for Mike Dubose for a long time. But, in the last few years, I've eased up. For one thing, Coach Saban has certainly helped ease the pain of the past. But, also, oddly enough, I kind of feel Dubose's pain. The reason why is because my father will ALWAYS hold over my head the things I did in my 20's. I was a wild one during those days and did a lot of bar hoping and drinking and spent way more money than I should have. Ironically, part of those wild times occurred while Dubose was the HC (1997-2000). I have long since grown up and lead a totally different life today. But, no matter. My father will never forgive my past under any circumstances. I could single handedly save the planet and my father would still hold my 20's over my head. "Just because today is different does not mean you get to rewrite yesterday" he likes to remind me. The man will go to his grave still upset with me over that. So, in light of that, I've become a little more forgiving of Dubose and other former head coaches!
