    Alabama loses great fan, a wonderful mentor to me

    What an uplifting tribute to Mike…. An LSU fan, who is a valued member, comes on an Alabama board to pay tribute to a friend and mentor who helped shape his career and life in a highly positive way. The mentor is not known to any of our members, but immediately gains the respect and admiration...

    That’s poetry masquerading as prose, BearFoot. Well written!

    Personal Finance Financial Planning & Investing

    Regarding the houses....you and the other investors are essentially builder financing. I'm not clear as to whether the houses are pre-sold before breaking ground, or are spec with the buyer to be identified at some point in the future. I'm also not clear as to whether you receive interest on...

    Alabama: Latest Bama News 9/13/2021 Thru 9/19/2021

    What a maroon. Given our play against Mercer, it’s the exact question Saban is using to challenge the team. Which, as with parents chastising their children, can sometimes be heard Iike the adults in a Charlie Brown cartoon. Now they get the same question from an opponent, rubbing their...

    What it takes to beat Bama...

    So what we’re really saying is that to beat Alabama, you have to: — Have a dual threat QB, who — Plays out of his skull, and — Win the turnover battle, and — Dominate Alabama’s OL, thereby — Stifle Alabama’s running game, and — Pressure Alabama’s QB into some mistakes, and — Not get untimely...

    Rest in peace, TommyMac...

    TommyMac was honest in the truest sense. You might like his opinion…you might not. Regardless, he told it as he saw it, with straightforward logic, not bound by anybody’s feelings. Still, he was a highly caring person. He just brooked no foolishness. More than ever, we need reality checks...

    First time visitor! Need help and advice.

    Which, as mentioned in the Gameday guide, I’ve seen several instances of this, though not much lately. Men with slightly embarrassed looks on their faces, traipsing back to the car with their companion’s purse in hand. Depending on exactly where the car is, it could be a long round trip.

    Alabama loses great fan, a wonderful mentor to me

    I have several people I think about when on the fence “What would Tony, Dick or Kimble do?” It’s a great way to stay connected even if you’re geographically separated.

    First time visitor! Need help and advice.

    With it being your first game in Tuscaloosa, and you’re not realistically likely to come back anytime soon, and having four hours to tool around before game time, I’d suggest a balance. You don’t want to miss the history, pretty campus and tailgating because you’re on The Strip drinking beer...

    Murdaugh Murder and More

    Maybe I’m naiive (I’ve definitely been called worse), but I’m curious as to how money could have kept the kid out of jail. Its not like the prosecutor could have declined to prosecute. If your friend is saying that a sufficient payoff could have bought a judge’s dismissal of a murder case...

    Murdaugh Murder and More

    Any idea why he might have had the son killed? Or would he have been collateral damage in the course of getting rid of the wife? Kind of a wrong place at the wrong time piece of bad luck? If an unintended victim, I’m not sure you go back to the same guy to get yourself killed. If an...

    Murdaugh Murder and More

    Son kills somebody (maybe more than one, I don't remember) in a drunken boating incident. Son gets much more lenient treatment than anyone not named Murdaugh would have. Son is out on bail awaiting a long-delayed trial when he and his mother are murdered execution-style. Dad's been shafting...

    First time visitor! Need help and advice.

    I like the idea of a ND hat and a Bama shirt. Will definitely get some conversations going. Most of the bad blood was on Alabama's side and was a function of getting jobbed out of two national championships in the 1966 and 1977 seasons. Admittedly an Alabama perspective. But that was 40+ and...

    Personal Finance Financial Planning & Investing

    A lot of the decision on whether to invest in income-producing commercial real estate (IPCRE) or not comes down to management. As in, somebody has to do it. Who? Does the investor have the skill set to collect rents as they’re due, pursue recalcitrant tenants, maintain the properties, acquire...
