    University of Alabama Fan Family

    First of all I would like to say congratulations on your victory in the SEC championship against Georgia. Secondly I would like to give you a little background on myself. Alabama football has been in my blood since I was a little boy. I have seen some great victories for the Alabama Football program and I have seen some heartbreaking losses. I went through most of my youth hearing my Dad talk about the traditions of Alabama football, in which such stories intrigued me. I also remember us year after year falling short of championships and asking questions like ďwhen is it going to our turn to win a championship?Ē I remember my dad telling me ď soon.Ē I remember times when I saw that winning was the most important thing,but as I have grown older and have matured, I have learned that people are more important. Over the course of this year I have questioned the integrity of imy beloved University of Alabama. I have considered the adversity that Jalen Hurts, and even the students and staff, must have undergone over the course of this season, concerning the starting position of quarterback. I have stood by and watched this season concerning the starting position of quarterback and seeing how we will be delivered through these adversities. I have prayed for the university of Alabama in hopes of what God might reveal to me as to whether we are serving the best interests of everyone. I have listened to interviews on the television in hopes of conformation,that we indeed are moving in the right direction. I say all of that to say this: Saturday when Jalen was put into the game, I felt like at that moment I was about to see Godís glory revealed. I feel like the Lord has been with us and that he used Jalen this year to reveal his glory. I canít think of a more deserving Victory for Jalen and the University of Alabama than to know that that the Lord is with us and his glory shines through us. If only we allow him, through trust and obedience, that we will see his glory revealed and the love he has for us all. With that said , congratulations to an already outstanding outcome to a trying year May God rule your minds and your hearts. To God be the glory forever and ever. Amen

    Sooo......God didnít want Tua to be the starting Quarterback?
    -Why's it us Sergeant? Why us?
    -Because we're here lad. Nobody else. Just us.

    For starters Roll Tide and welcome!

    But also secondly, huh?

    By all accounts, Tua is a wonderful person and Godly man in his own right. Why would God favor Jalen over Tua?

    And I donít say this to be argumentative, but could it also be that God doesnít care about football, and the better team just won?

    While Jesus was at the Right hand of God, was Coach Bryant at the Left hand, saying let's let Jalen RUN the ball to VICTORY for Jesus and Alabama? You know I did always like to run the ball. It's a Win-Win situation, just like last year and all for the Glory of Almighty God. Tua and his family can deal with a little adversity since the Bible and discipline are so important to his father.

    Do you think he may have a lot of INFLUENCE in those Heavenly places?

    well, it could be suggested that the results of the past 5 meetings of the teams suggests a divine preference towards bama

    As a minister/pastor of 43+ years let me say that you really need to rethink your theology. The last time I checked God is not a football fan. Does our Lord allow us to function at our highest level -- I think so and believe so. I am delighted that both Tua and Jalen allow their faith to direct their actions...a wonderful narrative for both of them.

    However, to even think that God cares about who wins or loses a game...what I would say about that would probably get me suspended -- and that's without any profane language.

    Honestly, please review your presuppositions...God is a fan of all persons...God loves us all and longs to enable each and every one of us to be successful in our lives and our faith.

    I am at a loss for words and best be going...
