Iron Bowl a warm-up for Bama

With the Iron Bowl finally on the horizon, I was talking to a friend recently about the big game.

“You are mighty high on the Tide,” he quipped. “But don’t you think it’s worth remembering that anything can happen in the Iron Bowl?”
I had to laugh. Actually, I almost choked. I wanted to say, “Hey buddy, have you seen Alabama play this year?” But I saved my breath.
You’ve heard the old cliché about this game: Throw out the record books. My advice this year: Throw out the clichés.
Alabama isn’t going to lose to Auburn in the Iron Bowl. While it’s true that upsets occur from time to time in this game, they are rare. Although it’s worth remembering this year marks the 25th anniversary of one the biggest stunners in the series.
