100% can guarantee “Saban Country” has never taken a class nor has had anyone affiliated with the university. It’s always the loudest SEC fans with zero real ties. Also, Love all the cry-laughing reactions to the post. Most of the Alabama Alumni know that funding of the football program is the least of their worries.

That said, it’s the only time the average SEC fan values anyone that’s African American.


This statement feels a bit provocative. Tell me more. :slight_smile:

Just facts. Look at the political landscape


Indeed. What would you say is the percentage of African American players in the SEC?

I’m not the census.

As a southern football enthusiast, what is your best guess?

Why does it matter?

Seems that a discussion about the racial makeup of the football population in the SEC and its potential impact could be made without dragging this thread into it.


Fair enough.

Wrong IRA dude…



Why Oregon will be just fine in the NIL era. From The Athletic:

EUGENE, Ore. — Somewhere in those 6.5 hours of perpetual pain, Dan Lanning’s phone lit up. But he didn’t see it. He was wincing. He was breathing deeply. Alec Turner, the artist tasked with completing the massive tattoo on the left side of Lanning’s chest, saw the name on the screen, and his eyes bulged.

The incoming call? Phil Knight.

So Turner removed the needle piercing the ribs of Oregon’s gregarious football coach and deadpanned: “Hey, man, you should probably answer this.”

When Phil Knight calls, you stop what you’re doing. Lanning sat on the table, swiped his phone screen and took a respite to talk to the founder of Nike and Oregon’s most famed alumnus and donor.

At Oregon, Lanning enjoys a fully guaranteed deal that pays more than $7 million a year through the 2029 season and requires a $20 million buyout to leave early, in addition to the perks of running a program with the support of Nike’s deep pockets…


Does Whittingham have someone for whom he will interrupt a tattoo?

I understand why you deleted it, but red star for the sentiments anyway.


Are you sure you weren’t talking about Gershwin? What a songwriter he was!



someone get a tissue for UCLA


Oh that’s a shame.


A real shame.
