The UAB Football program is not exactly national news yet. But keep your shirts on. It’s about to hit center stage. So is the Alabama Crimson Tide, which is always national news, considering they are one of the nation’s prominent football powers, at least, for the time being. The kind of national news they are about to get is something they’d rather do without.
Once the NCAA finds out what they’ve done, they will tear the Red Elephants a new rear end. They’ll probably take away Bear Bryant’s wins. This is appropriate, considering the deception was probably orchestrated by his son, who is the ring leader on the Alabama Board of Trustees.
On Saturday, December 6 during ESPN’s College Gameday, 4 days after the shocking announcement to end UAB football, Lee Corso implied that there was more to this story than meets the eye. Well Lee, My Friend, you are right on point. If you know the history of the Alabama Crimson Tide, you know that they will try to destroy anyone who takes a little attention away from their illustrious program. They’ve been trying to destroy their arch rival, the Auburn Tigers, for years, but have not been able to, and never will. At one time, Auburn was a thorn in Alabama’s side. They are no longer a thorn. They have more than held their own against their cross state arrogant rivals. Alabama doesn’t like it, but they’ll have to live with it.
Like Father, Like Son
Bear Bryant hated competition. He wanted the Alabama Crimson Tide to be the only attraction in the State, and set out to destroy anything that focused attention elsewhere. That’s why Birmingham never had an NFL franchise. Whenever there was talk about Birmingham landing an NFL franchise, Bryant threatened to pull his team out of Birmingham, and play the entire home schedule in Tuscaloosa. At the time, Birmingham needed Alabama, and Alabama needed Birmingham. Now, Alabama doesn’t need Birmingham, so their attitude is, Thanks Birmingham, but NO THANKS!
Apparently, UAB football is a threat to the mighty Alabama Crimson Tide. Otherwise, their football program would still be alive and well. Why is it obvious that Alabama is the culprit is all of this? Well, considering that both schools have the same Board of Trustees, headed by Bear’s illustrious son, how could anyone think otherwise? Coach Corso knows what’s going on.
UAB President, Ray Watts, not the bad guy
Ever since the announcement to end UAB football, UAB President, Ray Watts has taken the heat. This man is not to blame for what has happened. He has merely done what he has been told to do. How he was persuaded to do what he did is something I don’t want to touch with a ten foot pole. However, the truth will eventually come to the surface. This story is about to make national news.
The Alabama Crimson Tide is vulnerable right now. It is like a stack of cards about to fall over. The only thing that has held them together over the last eight years is Nick Saban. Saban is a gentleman, and probably is not into the politics like his counterpart of many, many years ago. The difference between Nick Saban and his long lost predecessor is simple. Nick Saban will try to beat you one the field, which he usually does. If he doesn’t, he won’t retaliate by trying to beat you off the field.
Finally, we’re not stating, as fact, that the University of Alabama is the culprit in all of this. This is merely our opinion. We also are not accusing the University of Alabama of any wrong-doing. If the Alabama Crimson Tide is guilty, the truth will come out. However, if what we have implied in this article is not true, we will be very, very surprised.
Get ready. This story is far from over. No one but the ones initiating the decision know the truth. They know who they are. And the truth, my Friends, will be revealed.
