re: Resegregation in the American South - Govt Tide
As someone who lived near Central High School my freshman year at Alabama in the mid 90s, the school and immediate area are much nicer now vs then. It's unfortunate that the school has gone downhill academically but the Tuscaloosa system as a whole has improved substantially in the last 20 years. Tw...

re: I know us Awbren (Barners) fans have been giving everyone a hard time lately... - Govt Tide
Other than middle linebacker and safety, this year's Alabama defense is going to be much better than last year. We finally have a stout pass rush. The offensive line wasn't great last year and won't be any worse. Quarterback is a concern though. If Coker is decent we'll be fine....

re: Florida wins NCAA Gymnastics National Championships after Bama Choked - Govt Tide
"On to golf" Bama's men's golf team has won 12 of their last 14 tournaments dating back to last season. They finished 2nd in the 2 tournaments they didn't win. We're going in dry on the rest of our schedule and going wire to wire #1. :nana: :lol:...

re: Southern Economies at a glance - Govt Tide
By "low growth state" I'm referring to population growth, not job growth. States with high population growth like Texas and Georgia have a disadvantage with unemployment stats because they have higher labor participation rates. Up through the 2010 census and even before Katrina, Louisiana had the sl...

re: Southern Economies at a glance - Govt Tide
Actually, Texas does have a steamrolling economy. They have low unemployment despite being a high growth state which makes it harder to keep unemployment numbers low. This high growth also hurts Georgia in unemployment statistics. Louisiana is so dependent on energy/oil and chemicals that when those...

"Or the lack of Asian or Native American players in general" Peter Kim, a Korean American from Hawaii, was Alabama's place kicker from 1980-1982 so we've broken the Asian barrier. :lol: [link=(http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2006/Aug/27/sp/FP608270365.html)]LINK[/link]...

re: Bloomberg plans $50m war against the NRA - Govt Tide
Very telling comments in the last paragrath of the article. He says that "if there is a God" that he (paraphrasing) has earned his place in heaven for all his work on obesity, gun control, etc.' Seems he is like so many millions of people (liberal and conservative) who think good deeds erase all you...

re: Favorite U.S. Open Course? - Govt Tide
I had a fraternity brother at Alabama that had/has access to Shoal Creek in Bham. It's a shame that the founder made the unfortunate comments leading up to the 1990 PGA Championship as it would have likely hosted another major or 2 since then without the controversy. It's usually still ranked among ...

Exactly. It's the most retarded insult imaginable.

Yeah, just like the first song I mentioned in this thread I'd almost completely forgotten about that song. Both songs have very catchy choruses. I just remembered the most random song imaginable today. It's one I vaguely remembered but couldn't remember the name. It was the "advice" song from th...

Scott might not have the swagger of Jeter but like Jeter the guy has dated some stunners and has women literally drooling over him. He has the best of both worlds. He doesn't make the money that Jeter does but he also doesn't have to deal with all the nonsense that someone as famous as Jeter or Tige...

re: Drugs on college campuses in Alabama - Govt Tide
I can honestly say I never saw cocaine in my 4.5 years at Alabama and I was a member of an old row fraternity. I saw plenty of marijuana and a few pills but that was it. It was definitely attainable if you were looking for it but it wasn't like walking around Tony Montana's mansion in Scarface with ...

THIS. You make an excellent point about being ONE OF the top golfers in the world and not THE top golfer. The ideal situation would to be a Dustin Johnson for example.

A boxer would be the last athlete lifestyle to pick imho. You risk serious injury and brain issues when older and have to deal with a lot of shady characters. Starting pitcher in baseball is probably the best life for a team sport. You only pitch about 3 or 4 games every two weeks and make truckload...

Professional athlete with the greatest life? - Govt Tide
I'd call it a toss up between Adam Scott and Derek Jeter. I'd personally prefer Adam Scott's situation. Imagine having OT 10s drooling over you and following you around like puppies not to mention being a Masters champion and being that attractive. Derek Jeter has a legendary list of girlfriends but...

This thread is a testament to how deep pop and alternative music was especially in tje 80s which carried over somewhat to the 90s music. I highly doubt there will be countdowns and documentaries related to the music of the 2000s and 2010s. Kids nowadays will one day wake up and realize how pathetica...
