Bama Fans Propose at Spring Game

Written by: Clay Travis

There are few things more romantic than proposing to your future wife at Alabama's spring game.

At least that's what the 85% of Alabama fans think.  

It's become an annual tradition, Alabama hosts a free spring football game and 85%'ers fall all over themselves to remember this moment forever, via a spring game proposal. Today we already have at least two such proposals. The first arrives via @mcbradtrey, who snapped this heartwarming photo of a bald man dropping down to one knee on the Bryant-Denny field and proposing to his wife as a crowd of idle onlookers looked on thinking, "Roll Tide!" and "I wish Nick Saban was here shirtless!"

Proving that women want to get married so badly they can make anything seem romantic, the woman here seems to be inclined to say yes. 

Which is unfortunate. 

Because I think if you get proposed to at a spring game every woman should say no out of principle.

By the time you read this I'll be in the air on my way to Houston.

I've got my wife and two other couples in tow -- including one A&M grad to show us around -- and we'll be waking up at dawn on Saturday to head over for the LSU-Texas A&M game. We have a tailgate set up for the game, but I'll Tweet out our location so I can meet up with as many of you who want to come by and say hi.

I can't wait.

Everything but the kickoff time should be outstanding.

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Johnny Manziel because his performance so far this season has been otherworldly.

Now let's dive into All That and a Bag of Mail.

Pointspread Dominance: Alabama Still Chasing USC

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

Most dominant college football team is a subjective argument. Each season a team gets off to a hot start and we’re ready to call them the greatest thing since sliced bread. However, there is one constant to gauge relative strength to the competitive set; the vegas pointspread.

When former SEC Commissioner Roy Kramer added Arkansas and South Carolina as the 11th and 12th team to the conference in 1990 so he could stage the first ever conference championship game, anyone would have bet the family pet that Alabama and Tennessee would meet in at least one championship game through 2011. 

Today I got my copy of Sports Illustrated in the mail.

The cover story is on Tyrann Mathieu, LSU's Honey Badger, who is presently sitting out the 2012 season after failing drug tests.

Mathieu's fall from Heisman contender to ineligible player has been well documented since July. Television cameras have even caught him sitting in the LSU student section this fall, rooting for the team he isn't allowed to represent. Now Sports Illustrated has put him on the cover of its magazine. The vast majority of the story is a rehash of the difficult background that Thayer Evans already wrote about last year for Fox Sports. That story was fabulous, an eye-opening account into an upbringing that most of us can't even imagine.

But that story ran nearly a year ago, amidst the swirl of media attention that surrounded the LSU-Alabama BCS title game.

I linked the Fox Sports story at the time and encouraged y'all to read it in the days surrounding the BCS title game.

I'd say the same thing today. Read it.

But now SI tells that same story, a year later, with insubstantial new news included.

Except for a couple of paragraphs about Mathieu's image potentially being used by a local Baton Rouge club.

The Five Stages of Southern Male Fall Wedding Grief

Written by: Hayley Frank

“We find a place for what we lose. Although we know that after such a loss the acute stage of mourning will subside, we also know that we shall remain inconsolable and will never find a substitute. No matter what may fill the gap, even if it be filled completely, it nevertheless remains something else.”
-Sigmund Freud

I used to think grief was what I felt when I was in Jr. High and my 12-week old Shih Tzu puppy died at home while we were away on vacation in San Antonio, TX. We had had a pesky mouse in the kitchen at the time so the exterminator put rat poison down in the pantry, except the mouse never found it.   Because Nugget Frank found it first.   Therefore, at the tender age of 14, I was able to form what I thought was a pretty acute definition of mourning.   However, this weekend I learned that my definition was wrong. Glaringly wrong. I now know that the definition of mourning is a lost Football Saturday in the south.

Linemaker Poll: Week of October 15

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

The BCS unveiled their rankings this past weekend but how does the first installment match up with the way Vegas ranks the field?

If I had a dollar for every time I heard a Tennessee fan say, “Let’s just pay Jon Gruden 7 million dollars,” I would have around 7 million dollars. I can remember thousands of outraged students chanting Jon Gruden outside Gate 21 on that fateful winter night when mattresses burned in the streets and Lane Kiffin miraculously escaped Knoxville alive.

Today Charles Barkley stopped by Roundtable Radio, the midday show on Birmingham's powerful WJOX station, to discuss the state of Auburn football.

And, not surprisingly, Barkley didn't pull many punches.

He began the segment with a comment about Auburn basketball, "Never thought you'd hear those words, can't wait for Auburn basketball."

Barkley discussed the upcoming Auburn-Alabama game, "I canceled my trip to the Iron Bowl. I'm not going down there to see that massacre."

Asked by host Lance Taylor if he would take Auburn +31?

"If they're giving Auburn 31, I've got Auburn in that game. Do you know what the money line on that game would be? I'd have to be really drunk to take the money line on that one."

Notwithstanding his decision not to go to the Iron Bowl, Barkley took issue with Pat Dye's comments that he didn't see Auburn having a chance to win upcoming games.

"I'm going to stick with Auburn no matter what, but I would never say we didn't have a chance."

An old coach once said, "you're never as good as you think you are." SEC fans, the media, and coaches could all learn something from that statement.

Ah, Gallette's in Tuscaloosa.

One of the best college bars in America.

The place where generations of Bama students have gotten together to drink beers, celebrate wins, and make college memories. 

I love Gallette's, every time I've ever been I've had a great time. At least for the times I can remember being there. 

You know the only way Gallette's could possibly be better?

If you're Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, your team is ranked number one in the country, and you've just beaten the brains out of yet another SEC foe.
