    Blasts From The Past - A Catch-All Thread of Tide Fans Classics

    "In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Tuscaloosa underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...the REC."

    That was pretty tame, but for close to a decade LSU fans were banned from posting on TF as they turned EVERY SINGLE DISCUSSION into a Miles comparison or a discussion as to how long he would stay at Bama before heading back down to BR...

    Funny, I remember that......my bigger take was the whole "Saban in ten years."

    Well......we NOW have the answer to that one.

    That thread as an idea sounds cool, then you see that it only has a few responses. We have no idea what folks here thought based on that thread.

    It will get better. We had fewer posters ten years ago and a lot, of course, are gone.

    But we'll find some prescience, too.

    it was just a few rope holders discussing the finer details of mtxe including a few that were able to juxtapose that with the cutting edge thoughts coming out of the pro coaching ranks.

    I particularly like the number of people who were confident that if Saban were to win a single national championship, he'd promptly retire to the lake.

    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    Well he won multiple so that is why he didn't retire to the lake. Now we know.

    It's a reminder of how desperate we were just for ONE, though. One of JessN's earliest articles about Saban - it may have even been the one telling us he was coming - said that even if Saban was only here for two years, he would so change the culture it would be worth it for the long haul.

    This is great and all... but I don't wish to see my posts wanting Paul Johnson as our coach after Shula to resurface. Thanks for your cooperation, selma.
