STUFF CRIMSON AND WHITE PEOPLE LIKE

http://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2008/06/12/stuff-crimson-and-white-people-like/ Coach Bryant: This is perhaps too obvious, but there is little doubt that since the apotheosis of General Robert E. Lee there has not been as much hero worship directed toward an individual until the time of Paul William “Bear” Bryant. There are goods odds that you could walk into any mom and pop diner in most parts of Alabama and start a very healthy debate amongst people that adamantly believe that debating is for sissies, if you threw out this question: Greater man; General Lee or Coach Bryant. Rest assured he wasn’t the only coach to take his Alabama teams to the Promised Land. But he was however, the best and most of the modern association with Alabama’s football glory days begins and ends with him. There are a few things that need to be stated about the man and the legend though. First of all, it’s Coach Bryant. If you refer to him as Bear you are a rival fan or brain-dead. Bear is a title that shows disrespect to the man, similar to the way calling a senior citizen by their first name if you don’t really know them is disrespectful. He was “Coach”, first and foremost. If you find a crimson and white person’s respect (or if you prefer, deification) of Coach Bryant silly or poorly placed then to quote Ricky Bobby “fuck you”. Crimson and white people could give two red cents about your opinion on that subject. If you feel the need to point out that he drank to much or was of questionable character at times then you are simply jealous and crimson and white people are well armed with anecdotes that prove you are merely hating. To prove their devotion, a new book is published about him about every 36 hours. If you missed the latest one, don’t worry there will be another in about, oh, 10 minutes. The books are increasing at such a rate that soon someone will have to build the Paul Bryant Library, which will naturally be located next to the Bryant Museum, which is on Bryant Drive, not too far from the Bryant Bridge and Bryant High School and a conveniently located branch of the Bryant Bank, just to house all the books about Bryant himself. Don’t kid yourself and think that simple knowledge of him it is all that is required. It is also an obsession with all things associated with him.

http://blog.al.com/rapsheet/2008/06/the_sabans_pledge_1_million_fo.html Just received some news from the University of Alabama. But it really has nothing to do with athletes or athletics, except that this guy is involved. Alabama coach Nick Saban and his wife Terry have endowed a scholarship for first-generation students. Both of them fit that category. The $1 million pledge won't go to athletes, just regular old students. This is the second donation from the Sabans. They previously gave $100,000 in January of 2007. Check out this release: UA ANNOUNCES SABAN FIRST GENERATION SCHOLARSHIPS TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama is pleased to announce that Nick and Terry Saban have pledged $1 million to the University for scholarships. al.com 6/8/08
