re: Your school's most humiliating HOME loss in the last 30 years? (Top 3) - TheTideMustRoll
Good god, the 2000 season. I have a lot of vivid memories from that one. Watching the UCLA game in disbelief because I had totally bought into the “Bama is back!” preseason hype. Watching us have to resort to running the option to finally put Vanderbilt away late in the game the following week. And ...

re: Most dominant performances over another Power 5 opponent? - TheTideMustRoll
2011 Cap One Bowl vs Michigan State is probably the worst beatdown of a good team that I have witnessed Alabama administer in person. It’s the only time I can remember seeing a team have to punt on 4th and goal. :lol:...

re: What scene did the Last Jedi lose you? - TheTideMustRoll
For whatever reason, Rian Johnson appears to have based every single thing about TLJ around the idea of not giving the audience what they expected going in. To wit: -Audience expected Leia to be killed off since Carrie Fisher died in real life: NOPE -Audience expected Luke to emerge from retirem...

re: Songs that have versions better than the album version - TheTideMustRoll

re: European Teenager vs Americans - TheTideMustRoll
Mbappé has probably been a professional athlete since he was 13 or so. The others on your list were either still amateurs or just entering their pro careers. Big difference in how the US and other countries treat a career as an athlete....

re: What scene did the Last Jedi lose you? - TheTideMustRoll
I realize I can’t say this without someone dragging politics into it, but the moment I realized that Rose was going to appear in more than one scene, my blood pressure began to rise. ETA: My wife just made me watch the first 45 minutes or so of this shite movie again. Now that I’ve refreshed my me...

re: Auburn will win the national championship in football in 2018 - TheTideMustRoll
You’ve posted here for a while, but during this offseason it’s like you suddenly decided you wanted to become the worst poster on the board. And you would have done it, were it not for jimdog....

re: 1966 and 1975 Alabama - TheTideMustRoll
Bama fans’ belief in the infallibility of the AP poll? What the frick are you talking about? If anything, we tend to the opposite extreme. I wasn’t even alive in ‘66 or ‘77 and I carry a chip on my shoulder about those final polls, as do most Bama fans. The AP poll has been very fallible through the ...

re: D&D first time player, any advice? - TheTideMustRoll
[quote]Isn’t neutral evil completely crazy?[/quote] No, that’s chaotic neutral. Neutral evil is best conceptualized by comparing it to lawful and chaotic evil. A lawful evil character has a code that he lives by - it just happens to be a bad code. Maybe he’s a militaristic tyrant. Maybe he is a s...

re: Finebaum - TheTideMustRoll
Kind of wish he would just come back to Birmingham and go back to being a local radio sports guy. He was at his best when he stayed in the background giving crazy people a platform to entertain us with their craziness. Now that he is the focus of the show, it has lost a lot of what made it great. Fa...

re: Why isn't US men's soccer better than it is? - TheTideMustRoll
Like I said, I’m no expert, so I’ll ask: do the big European youth academies make students pay for their soccer education, or do they instead compete financially to bring in the best young prospects in the hopes that they will eventually pan out and provide a massive return on investment as a world-...

re: Why isn't US men's soccer better than it is? - TheTideMustRoll
I’m certainly no expert on this matter, but to me the entire focus of “soccer culture” in the US versus other countries is out of whack. Here, if you are a good youth player, then your ultimate goal is likely going to be getting a scholarship to college, where you will go to learn to do something el...

re: The Original Star Wars Trailer (1976) - TheTideMustRoll
Not only were the lightsabers white, but the sound effects were also incomplete. Pretty sure I heard the clack of colliding broomsticks. :lol: Seriously, that’s probably the worst trailer I’ve ever seen....

re: About to watch Avengers: Infinity War - TheTideMustRoll
I remember many moons ago taking a girl I was dating to see some Ben Stiller movie. I can’t remember which one, but I can very distinctly remember that we were the only two people in the theater, because we took, shall we say, full advantage of that fact. I don’t envy whatever poor high school kid w...

[quote]What else should have been done with Luke after TFA?[/quote] I agree that [i]TFA[/i] in many ways did [i]TLJ[/i] no favors. But I could have lived with a Luke who, having himself received only rudimentary Jedi training at best, lost confidence in himself when he tried to train Kylo Ren in ...

re: Let's play make believe in regards to the ultimate rock 'n roll band - TheTideMustRoll
I’ve heard that at one of LZ’s early shows in a smaller venue, the PA system went out. Plant sang the entire show with no amplification, [i]and everyone could hear him nonetheless[/i]. For anyone who’s ever done vocals in a rock band, you understand how incredible that is. No one could have replaced...
