The University of Alabama Is Run by Idiots
I've been calling for the firing of Mike Shula for weeks now. And nothing in last night's loss to LSU changed my mind. Yes, the play calling was (a little bit) better...I liked the on-side kick (although we didn't move the ball after)...but the problems were still exactly the same. Move the ball between the 20s and fail to score in the red zone. Yuck.
But I have little hope that the school is going to do anything. This week, those blithering idiots decided to sue Daniel Moore. Now if you don't know Bama football, this won't mean much to you, but Moore's artwork of famous plays by the Crimson Tide is legendary in the South. His painting of Cornelius Bennett obliterating Steve Buerlein of Notre Dame called "The Sack" hangs in the Bear Bryant museum. He has painted the outstanding plays that I remember so well. But apparently he's doing too well at it--and now the school is suing him (despite giving him a sideline pass for two decades!) for violating their "intellectual property."
I don't think there's enough intellect in the Athletic Department to convince a judge of their case. And I hope they lose. Frankly, I'm ashamed and embarrassed of "my" school. Roll Tide--but get us some leadership first!
