re: Is the Fall of France the greatest military achievement in history? - RollTide1987
[quote]You are leaving out the part that without France helping, the US likley would not have won. [/quote] The American Revolution was an unpopular war in Great Britain almost from the word "go." There were many members of Parliament sympathetic to our plight. After their defeat at Saratoga in...

[quote]And of course, their life expectancy was much shorter.[/quote] Their life expectancy increased to about what ours is if they made it through childhood. John died about the year 100, some 70 years after the crucifixion, which would have made him about 87 years old upon his death. [quot...

re: Is the Fall of France the greatest military achievement in history? - RollTide1987
And it really blows my mind how people underestimate the total arse kicking we gave Saddam and the Iraqi army in the First Gulf War. They had one of the largest militaries on the planet in 1990 and many of them had been battle-hardened by the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s. Analysts were predicting it ...

re: CNN: The US would be better off with fewer billionaires - RollTide1987
I have a negative net worth due to student and car loans as well as credit card debt. But do you want to know something? Even though I make all of my payments on time, I am still living more comfortably than many medieval kings did. This is true for much of middle class America. Even our poor li...

John was reportedly the youngest apostle. Peter was the oldest. Their ages were most likely between 14-25. It's a good bet that the vast majority of them were teenagers. ...

Alabama reportedly interviewing Aaron Feld this morning to replace Cochran - RollTide1987
Would be a home run hire if he lands the job. If I'm Cristobal I do what I can to keep Feld because you could tell the difference in physicality between the 2019 team and the 2018 team. Night and day. ...

re: Most vacated football wins of all time - RollTide1987
[quote]Wait, where's AUBURN???? [/quote] You got smart and started paying with cash. And these are vacated wins, not forfeits. Alabama has 29 forfeited/vacated wins. If not for those, we'd be coming up on Michigan for the #1 spot in all-time wins. ...

re: The Chosen- anyone watched this? - RollTide1987
The first season of the show was funded almost completely by crowd sourcing. I have only seen the first four episodes and loved them all for the most part. My only quibble with the show thus far was the way the disciples new he was the messiah almost immediately. Simon Peter didn't confess him as...

I think he was talking about American losses because who really cares about NVA/VC losses? The French did not just throw up the white flag willy nilly. They had multiple chances to stop the German juggernaut in its tracks but were impeded by a high command stuck in the ways of the last war. T...

re: Here’s my take on Scott Cochran - RollTide1987
[quote]True freshmen won us our last national championship [/quote] On offense, yes. It was upperclassmen on the defensive side of the ball that finally stopped Georgia's offense. Upperclassmen on defense were sorely lacking by the end of the 2019 football season due to injury. ...

Meh. I'm not sure I'm buying the authenticity of a Reddit post. I think many Alabama fans feel that way. However, I do find it interesting that Cochran was reportedly not permitted to say goodbye to the team before he left for Athens. ...
