Why Alabama fans have the reputation for being the worst in the SEC

I have lots of material but little time to post today. That said when my son alerted me to the following from last night’s Sugar Bowl game…..:

Bama fan goes crazy on OU student

I’ve happened to make the acquaintances of several high quality UA alums though time. The trash in the fan base is defining the school and folks this is not good. Let’s review:

Roundup: Alabama Fan Kills Another Alabama Fan After Auburn Loss ~ The Big Lead

Do you folks remember me saying I thought Alabama fans were “some of the most obnoxious fans in all of collegiate athletics”?

And I did while taking the opportunity to talk a bit of trash before the title game little over a week ago. This is not sour grapes either as the Slabbed Nation fully acknowledges Les Miles is Nick Saban’s bottom bitch as LSU was woefully unprepared for the game and Miles not only refused to adjust as he acknowledged after the game, he has gone into hiding which is not a good sign for a guy pulling down $3MM/year.

So enter some poor slob wearing LSU attire passed out at the Krystal’s near the dome and the French Quarter.  Some jubilant Alabama fan evidently teabagged him and actually took cyber credit,  meaning he is also a complete dumbass along the lines of Harvey Upkyke, the dumbass Alabama fan that poisoned some beautiful Oak Trees near the University of Auburn campus last year. More ominous for those that took part in the teabagging of the passed out LSU fan is that Brendan McCarthy wrote the local version of the story for the Picayune. I don’t think we’ve heard the last of it.

File this one under country boys gone to town.

Is Alabama coach Nick Saban a miserable sum bitch? Discuss.

Folks remember former Saints fullback Heath Evans? Now doing sports TeeVee Evans is reportedly a fantastic human being and the exact type of high character guy  coaches like Sean Payton value in their locker rooms. Turns out Evans also played for and was cut by Nick Saban during the partial birth abortion that was Saban’s stint with the Fish in the 2005 season. Sports by Brooks has the skinny on an interview Evans gave to a Miami sports radio show recently:

Well, the first day of two-a-days. We had about a three-hour-plus practice in the morning in that south Florida sun. You guys know what it’s like down there in late July, early August. And then that night we had another practice under the lights, if I recall I think it was about from 6 to 9.

Jeno James, our best offensive lineman at the time, comes in and collapses after practice, uh, vomiting all kinds of stuff that would make a billygoat puke, eyes rolled in the back of his head. Myself, about four other lineman are trying to carry him from the locker room, to the training room.

Obviously it’s a moment of panic, everyone, you know, we don’t know if this guy’s, you know, gonna die, I mean, the whole deal. But he’s so big and sweaty and heavy that we actually have to set him down in the hallway between the locker room and the training room.

Nick Saban literally just starts walking in, steps over Jeno James convulsing, doesn’t say a word, doesn’t try to help, goes upstairs, I don’t know what he does. But then obviously they get Jeno trauma-offed to the hospital. Continue reading “Is Alabama coach Nick Saban a miserable sum bitch? Discuss.”
