re: When did a formalized conference schedule become a thing? - WRhodesTider
IIRC, it started in the mid to late '70s when each team played 6 games(5 perm and 1 rotating). Changed sometime in the '80s to 7 games with the same 5 permanent. Bama and Ole Miss played each other in '80 & '81 but the games didn't count in the standings....

re: Well they say football is like a religion in Alabama - WRhodesTider
It is. A lady had to give everyone a War Eagle on her way to her pew this morning. And this was in an Episcopal Church where we don't normally do such things. Everyone, including the Alabama fans, understood....

re: Birmingham Conservative Radio Wall-to-Wall Coverage of the Moore Accusations - WRhodesTider
[quote]Only listened for a few minutes this morning, but was surprised to hear Matt Murphy being critical of Moore. I rarely listen to him, so maybe he didn't like Moore to begin with. [/quote] I like Murphy's show as he's pretty even handed. He's more of a libertarian. I don't listen to him as...

re: For those who have been to Tuscaloosa - WRhodesTider
I also recommend parking downtown and staying in Meridian. I normally walk to the stadium but after my brother's experience last weekend, I don't think the shuttle is a bad option. He didn't leave until the end of the game and the line was already long but he made it to his car in about 15 minutes....

re: Ranking the SEC rivalries - WRhodesTider
[quote]Was UT-UF considered much of a rivalry before Spurrier? [/quote] No but they rarely played each other before he coached for Florida. Although there were games in Spurrier's first two seasons, they didn't become permanent opponents until 1992. There were only 19 meetings before his arrival in ...
