    Been super busy and haven't had a chance to post! Next week I leave for London to go see Ireland play Wales at Cardiff stadium, as part of Six Nations Tour. I go every year to one of the six locations with guys I use to play rugby with many years ago. It's a really good time.

    Maybe you should link your facebook and we can keep up with your trip. ​Seriously, that's great, but what does this have to do with football or Alabama?

    Call me spiteful but I hope he does flip to Florida just to stick it to CKS and company lol

    It means I won't be posting here next week. I know you're all disappointed! ;-)

    I'll give you a summary of my trip when I get back. I went to Gloucester for the 2015 Rugby World Cup and saw USA vs Japan. The fans there were rugby nuts... grown men dressed in Geisha outfits, it was a trip! I hear Cardiff is the Holy Grail of rugby, so I'll be interested to see how it differs from the other places we've been.

    What is the popularity level of rugby? Soccer is obviously king. Where does rugby fit?

    That's a great question. Do we have room in this country for yet another sport. I think the answer is, Yes. The United States just won the 7's World Championship this past weekend in Vegas. 7's is getting very popular in the States, but to me it's a cheap imitation of Rugby Union. Many will disagree, but I'm a purest.

    Last year a new U.S. Pro Rugby League began in the Spring and was covered by CBS Sports, so that tells me popularity for 15's is on the rise. That said it has a long way to go. One potential contributor would be if the U.S. men's team did better internationally to get people fired up (like the U.S. women's soccer team did for that sport). They won't reach that objective this World Cup, because they have England, France and Argentina in their draw. To really improve U.S. rugby requires a stable pro league with enough TV coverage and promotion to drive awareness. Personally, I think it's a phenomenal sport and I really enjoyed playing it.

    Where rugby is very popular (England, France, New Zealand, etc.), do you know where it falls on the list? Just curious where rugby is in fan support after soccer. It's a sport that I think should be more popular here.

    In England, France, Italy and many European country's rugby falls behind Soccer. There are exceptions, for example Ireland rugby is a solid #2 in popularity behind their national sport of Hurling. In Australia I know Australian Rules Football is super popular, so it probably fits in the top 3. Wales would be a tough call, rugby may trump Premier League, but I wouldn't put money on that. I think in New Zealand is the #1 sport, primarily because they're so darn good at it. For example, I was at the match in Chicago a few years ago when Ireland beat NZ for the first time in 112 years!

    Rugby is really catching on in Eastern European countries and there's talk about potentially adding Georgia and maybe even Romania to the Six Nations tournament. Surprisingly, Germany doesn't field a top notch international rugby team. Next year, I'm looking at going to the European Cup in Marseilles France. Club rugby is a slightly different animal than International play... a bit more wide open. Leinster is very, very good. The Bama of Club rugby.

    This is an example of where I think the revolving door on Saban’s staff hurts us.

    Should this be moved to the rugby board.
