Mercer preview: Bears’ presence on Bama’s schedule may be an artifact of old Auburn days
By Jess Nicholas, TideFans.com Editor-In-Chief
Perhaps not completely lost on the minds of Alabama football fans was Mercer’s game last Saturday against Point University, a 69-0 affair between two schools whose combined enrollment probably wouldn’t be enough to exceed that of Alabama’s College of Arts and Sciences.

Point University is an NAIA school. It was founded to educate missionaries, later became a Bible college and first formed up athletic teams in 2012, which was around the same time Mercer finally brought its football team back from a 70-year hiatus triggered by World War II.

Thanks, Jess. Main thing for this game is no injuries. Games like these make me just as nervous as the playoffs (for different reasons), due to the cut block/chop blocks/injury potential. Let the 1st string play 1 quarter, then put in the backups! RTR
