SEC Rant
Earlier origin of Alabama elephant mascot - BamaGradinTn
There are two stories, perhaps both true, about how Alabama's football squad became associated with the elephant, both dating to the coaching tenure of Wallace Wade (1923–1930). The earliest account attributes the Rosenberger's Birmingham Trunk Company for the elephant association. Owner J. D. Rose...

More convinced than ever that the playoffs should not expand. - BamaGradinTn
When you get to this level, every game is a violent, brutal war. Teams have enough players already banged up from the season, then a conference championship. If we had won tonight, look at the players who would likely be out for Oregon, and then look at those who would be less than 100%. And then...

Who should Baylor blame? - BamaGradinTn
Maybe Deloss Dodds? The whole "we play everyone" mantra about the Big 12 falls apart when you look at who "everybody" is. 3 teams with losing records...and TCU and Baylor, because they don't have divisional play, is guaranteed to play each one of them every year. By comparison, OSU only had two...

Someone please listen to Brando monday and report back. - BamaGradinTn
I want to hear what that dumbass says after having predicted that (a) the SEC champion would have two losses, and (b) that no SEC team would get in the playoff. I would do it if I didn't have to work. :cheers:...

Questions for anyone considering buying playoff tickets. - BamaGradinTn
The deadline for ordering playoff tickets is Monday. I was thinking about ordering for the Sugar Bowl...and/or maybe the final. There is no price given on the order form. That's not necessarily unusual. So I called the ticket office today to get an idea at least of what the range might be....

Upside to McElwain going to Florida... - BamaGradinTn
...assuming he is successful: 1. Annual beatdowns of LSU. Should become more difficult for LSU to win the West. 2. The streak against the Vols continues ad infinitum. Does anyone outside of Knox County think that Sgt. Carter is the better coach? Of course, there will be some downside. An...

3 way tie scenarios. - BamaGradinTn
With a couple of possible 3 way tie scenarios...OM-ALA-MSU and OM-AUB-MSU, those SEC East records and remaining games could get interesting. We could all find ourselves pulling for teams that we never pull for. Currently... AUB (USCe & UGA)...6-4 ALA (UF & UT)...2-6 MSU (VU & UK)...2-6 ...

Fun Vol fact. - BamaGradinTn
In the last ten years, the Vol offense has scored exactly 9 touchdowns against Alabama. Less than one per year...for an entire decade. Think of all the coaches involved. Shula and Saban. Fulmer, Kiffin, Dooley, and Jones. Joe Kines, Kevin Steele, and Kirby Smart running Alabama's defense. Da...
