University of Alabama football means more to the city of Tuscaloosa than just bringing notoriety to the school and the state with a handful of national championships.

The team also brings in significant cash flow and it could mean a major loss should the college football season get canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Mayor Walt Maddox told reporters on a video conference call that not having a season could result in about $2 billion in lost revenue.

Sorry Mayor, but the political left who is orchestrating this annihilation of our country says too bad but get on the band wagon to destroy it all.

Get out of here with conspiracy theory bullshiet. No one is orchestrating anything except boomers on facebook making fake ADA anti-mask cards. There's a virus that's spreading like wildfire and has already killed well over 100k people in the US.

There’s no other reason anybody wants to go to that turd hole. All of the rednecks pawn off their trailers to attend games yearly.

Literally Auburn is located in Auburn and their campus has a section for trailers. If we're comparing Alabama vs. Auburn, generally, Bama's student body and alumni is the tradition frat boy/business guy. Auburn is the farmer.

lol. 1 year win streak and LSU fans have lost their damn minds. String together 2 in a row before you start feeling yourself in our series. You're still little brother, even with a NC.

How many gumps can Clyde Eddie Hellboy drag for a first down? 8? 9? In the gumps defense, we had already beat them down and made them give up by then.

If the city wants to not lose a ton of money they better stop Saban from being political against over half the population and the patriots and the majority of ala voters. He promoted the democrat senator who then tried to do a coup on the voters and the president Many patriots will now stop their support for u if Aja because of what Saban is doing playing politics and playing against the majority
