It was funny to read that. "Nebraska probably doesn't win without Frazier." This from the same folks who told me Brook Berringer was going to be drafted into the NFL had he not died. Look, he was a great kid - Tim Tebow before Tebow - but he wasn't going to the NFL except as a ticket buyer. But like pretending a global conspiracy whacked JFK, it somehow gives his life meaning for others if we pretend he was "robbed of his chance by tragedy" rather than "he'd probably be selling real estate nowadays and making big bucks."I have no problem with folks saying “the 1941 title is bogus” but you have to say it first. Just to say “a few of Alabama’s titles aren’t legit” is just a lazy way to say “Im jealous”
I found this article from way back in the 90’s that saw a change in the program coming but not to the extent that it did.
As my late aunt once said about Brian Piccolo, "If he hadn't died, nobody would remember who he was."
