Alabama football will be forced to give up 21 wins from the 2005-07 seasons. Does that really hurt? No, not really. In all 16 athletic programs and 201 athletes were involved in a textbook scam.
Five players were suspended from the team in 2007 after it was revealed that they used their scholarship benefits to gain free textbooks for other students. Officials were immediately suspicious when athletes decided to pick up any textbooks at all. However, since the violations allegedly started in 2005, any victory from those three seasons that those players participated in would have to be vacated. The school will also be on the never ending probation for three years and have to pay a fine.
Vacating wins means absolutely nothing. It doesn’t take back the booster money or tickets sales that those wins generated. The only true way to hurt a school is to take away scholarships, and the NCAA will not be doing that, even though Alabama is a multiple repeat offender. This particular offense is very minor and so is the punishment, even if the NCAA probably wants you to think otherwise.
Mike Price is celebrating by heading to the strip club…”Roll Tide, right coach?”
“It’s rolling, baby!”

Is that Teddy Bear kidding with the "Rold Tied" on its shirt?
Apparently Billy Bob Bammer is MIA ever since the Tide embarrassed the entire SEC with their lose to Utah, since I’m partly blaming Utah for Billy Bob’s disappearance I suppose I could blame them for the latest Bama fan brawl.
“Hartford Police Chief Ben Berry said 52-year-old Timothy Fowler had held an Alabama football party on Friday and a fight broke out during a card game. Berry said Fowler apparently swung a flashlight at another man, who then punched Fowler’s face in the front yard. Berry said alcohol may have been a factor.”
Classic Alabamian… bringing a flashlight to a fistfight.
I love how they say that alcohol “may” have been a factor…I guess you could say stupidity could have been a factor as well.
My grandma always used to say “The more Bama fans murdering each other the better. Also fuck Florida.” She was a little on violent/senile side.
Alabama, making Ohio look good since 1819!

Police in Montgomery, Alabama took down a prostitution ring yesterday that netted 7 sluts and 3 white trash pimps. Good job!
While looking through the mug shots picture 8 really stands out. It’s name is Leslie Parker and it’s obvious she’s a Bama fan! RTR!
She’s just trying to get paid by any means necessary… one might call her behavior “Saban-esque”. She may only charge a dollar but she feels like a millionaire. RTR!
Rammer Jammer, Skank goes to the Slammer
She looks like the looks like the bastard child of Jeremy Shockey and Molly Ringwald. Let me guess. You take her home to your wife/girlfriend and your better half automatically feels better about herself…right?
The jerseys are actually a form of “prostitution code”. For example, the Johns are supposed to sport something from the University of South Carolina.

If a picture is worth a thousand words then the above photo is clearly a copy of War & Peace. Quite honestly that is also what best describes this season. The fans are at war with the coach and Fulmer is constantly trying to bring peace.
The Phreaky Phil-Osophy show goes on and on and on while the status of the Tennessee Football program goes down.
A lot of Tennessee fans had a “gut feeling” about this game. That feeling turned out to be a mirage of hope. This team is bad, no make that dreadful.
No matter how this rest of this season plays out Tennessee will not beat a major rival. This was the first time Tennessee has lost consecutive games to Bama in the Fulmer era. It’s another clear sign that it’s time for a coaching change.
“I’m obviously very disappointed,” said Fulmer. “We’re in a battle from top to bottom, whether it’s recruiting or whatever. But I’m more concerned about our team right now.”
Alabama beat up Tennessee for the same reason Florida did: both teams have better play makers on both sides of the ball. The VOLS didn’t even get a first down until the 13:42 mark in the 2nd quarter.
Tennessee is just 6-14 against ranked teams over the last four years and a stunning 1-9 at home against the Top 10 this decade.
If a storied NFL team like the Cowboys can cut ties with a coach that gave them 2 Super Bowl victories and 5 appearances, then surely Tennessee can cut ties with Fulmer. Bring in some fresh blood and reawaken this program.
Of course Phil continues with saying the right things.
“All I know,” Fulmer said, “is we’ll keep working to get it fixed.”
Where have I heard that before?
Let’s look at these weeks grades and see just what needs fixing.
Stephens still has not turned the ball over since he took the job from Crapton Crompton. He was 16 of 28 for 137 yards. However he made some questionable throws and missed some open wide receivers.
RUNNING BACKS D
36 rushing yards. Pathetic. Absolutely no explosive runs. I do credit Hardesty for making a first down due to second effort
Clearly Gerald Jones was missed and fears of seeing Chavis in drag allowed Eric Berry only one opportunity on offense. Taylor and Stocker each had drops. I’m not going to blame Taylor for the offensive pass interference penalty though, that was total BS.
OFFENSIVE LINE F
Though this group got a good push in short yardage situations, they also had two penalties at critical times.
DEFENSIVE LINE C+
Robert Ayers continues to shine. The game score could have turned out different if Dan Williams didn’t suffer an injury.
Even though Rico McCoy had 13 tackles he often knocked on his ass and they were so far down field that it didn’t make much of a difference. Ellix Wilson had nine stops as well.
Eric Berry had 11 tackles and laid the wood on several Bama players. DeAngelo Willingham was picked on by Bama forcing man-to-man coverage to stop the run.
SPECIAL TEAMS C
LaMarcus Thompson forced fumble on a Bama punt that was recovered by Rogan at the five yard line. Colquitt had a productive night though he shanked a punt that was costly. Lincoln Logs missed a 51 yard field goal, but I’m not going to blame him for that because that’s clearly out of his range, but he should have made that 43 yard attempt.
The A is for the defense. Considering they received zero help from the offense they deserve it. Offensively Clawson called a boring and horrid game. When the VOLS needed big plays the calls were not made.
Though the defense was solid and the special teams were productive, the offense is awful and laughable. The penalties that the offensive committed during opportunistic situations took points off the board.
A look ahead:
South Carolina is next week and believe it or not I think Tennessee should win this game. South Carolina’s run game is actually worse than ours. Stephens has an advantage due to the fact he protects the ball by not throwing interceptions and not fumbling. This should be a low scoring affair. Both defenses are equally good but I believe our secondary is considerably better.

Most experts say that fans take sports and cheering for their favorite teams to seriously. In most cases I tend to agree with them. However those experts have never experienced the Third Saturday in October either. They do not know the joy or exhilaration of seeing the Tennessee Volunteers or the Alabama Crimson Tide take the field right before kickoff. Those experts have never felt the excitement in the air that is buzzing around when the teams line up.
This game is much more than a simple competition between two border state rival schools. This game is about passion, heart, pride & respect! And nothing means more than to these two teams than respect.
For Phil Fulmer this year’s game is about his legacy and his coaching career at Tennessee. For Nick Saban this year’s game is about a possible BCS birth and the chance to play for the national championship.
It’s hard to say who has the most to lose in this game. If Tennessee loses then Fulmer is most likely out as the head coach & if Saban loses then people will still question the hire by Alabama and people will point to this lose with an “I told ya so” attitude.
It is also equally hard to say who has the most to gain by a victory. If Tennessee wins then Fulmer will most likely keep his job as the head coach whether he wins out or not. A win would also propel the VOLS into a brighter national light. The number seven recruiting class that Fulmer is currently building could jump to number one. If Alabama wins then Saban brings Alabama to an 8-0 record and a possible number one ranking. The road to the BCS National Championship becomes ever so closer. And of course Saban could reel in yet another top rated recruiting class.
For the fans this game is an oxymoron of painful orgasmic joy. They live and die on every play, every called timeout & every injury. Both fan bases are smart enough to know that one can throw out the win/loss records for these two schools when they play. That fact alone makes rivalry games like this so intense.
Throw out what the experts say about sports and the seriousness of being a fan. They have never witnessed college gridiron gladiators battle each other like these two teams. If you look into the fans eyes on this holy day you will see both love & hate. Love for their favorite team and hate for the opposing team.
The Sunday following the game (or Monday for some fans) as the players and fans alike are recovering from their injuries or walking on air, the realization should set in that this is simply a game. However the fact that their memory will either joyously or painfully remind them of the final score and then reality actually sets in.
This is not a game. This is war that is fought only once a year and victors of that year’s war savor every moment of it for many times over in their heads. I’ve always said a good Alabama team is a beaten Alabama team.
Ladies and Gentlemen this is not a game: THIS IS THE BATTLE KNOWN AS THE THIRD SATURDAY IN OCTOBER!!!!!!
GO VOLS! Beat Bama!!!
Now let’s review some past Bama farks.

That’s right folks it’s Alabama week and one can not have an Alabama week with the Big Orange Roundtable now can we? Taking a cue from the 3rd Saturday in Blogtober, both Billy Bob Bammer and I will be answering the questions this week.
With out further a due let’s go to the roundtable!!! (Never mind the smell it’s Bama related)
Both teams at some point or another have been described as an Evil Empire. If your team is the Death Star, what is its planet-destroying weapon?
Thomas the Terrible: Simple Eric Berry. He is the crusher of the dreams for the QB’s and hits like hell, just ask Knowshon Moreno. He has already accumulated 5 interceptions this season and leads the county in interceptions as well.
He is a lock for all-American and possibly defensive player of the year in the SEC, unless the ref that tackled Stephen Garcia steals it. Not to mention he is also a tackling machine.
Billy Bob Bammer: Shoot that there is a easy one. Our boosters. You see our boosters pay the players more than what they might receive in the NFL. How the hell you think we get such good players in the first place?
The one thing a young man needs to worry when coming to Bama is football. You say you have a test in painting by numbers? Our boosters will gladly take that test for you.

Let’s be honest for the most part yesterday was an exciting & entertaining crappy day of college football.
As always I’ll have a full review of the Tennessee game tomorrow after I watch a tape of the game today. For the most part the death clock continues to toll for Philopotamus.
Pittsburgh is still alive in the Big Least and shot down South Florida which I was glad to see.
Duke was on a roll until they met another team from a “smart school” that was also a buzz saw name Georgia Tech.
Michigan State continues to quietly win while Iowa continues to quietly suck.
Has anyone noticed that Minnesota is 5-1?
Right now Penn State is the most underrated top 10 team in the country.
I asked this question on a message board this week it is worth asking again. Should Arkansas be considered a Div. 2-A school this season? I bet Atlanta doesn’t look so bad to Bobby P. now huh?
Kansas, remember them? Well they almost were victims of an upset yesterday.
Oklahoma didn’t have any trouble winning their first game as the #1 in the country.
Virginia Tech is suddenly the team to beat in the ACC.
Notre Dame is 4-1 and almost lost to Stanford. With their weak schedule why aren’t they in the top 5? (Sarcasm people catch the fever!)
The Fighting Zookers of Illinois reinserts themselves in to the Big 10.
Wisconsin is on the fail slide.
Texas Tech is 5-0 and it looks like their offense has awaked.
I hate F$U but they are 4-1 and their game with Miami was a classic.
UCONN is the latest Big East failure.
America’s coach Mike Gundy has Oklahoma State at 5-0. He’s a man he’s 40! By God.
Holy shit just when you think Maryland is coming back and Virginia is dead. Virginia dismantles Maryland big time.
Arizona is 4-1 look for them to be ranked later today.
Oregon you picked a bad time to play SoCal.
Missouri might be the best team in the country right now and Chase is clearly the Heisman leader.
Wow Hawaii beat Fresno State…wow.
Vanderbilt upends Auburn at home which worries the hell out of me.
South Carolina’s offense finally shows life and Garcia still isn’t a starter, maybe he should key another professor’s car to get a little attention.
While Bama might have won yesterday the fact that Kentucky has the #1 scoring defense in the nation is no fluke.

Credit LWS for this awesome pic.
Since it appears that Billy Bob Bammer has hijacked this blog as of late, I guess I should mention Bama’s fall from recruiting grace.
It seems that Rivals has revised its 2008 recruiting rankings based on who actually made it to their campus of choice. With Bama losing several four-star athletes such as Kerry Murphy because he was to stupid to qualify academically and players, Melvin Ray and Destin Hood, who both decided to play professional Baseball instead of receiving bags of cash, can only mean one thing:
Bama falls to Number 2.
On the surface it isn’t much, just a number that really doesn’t mean it will translate to wins after all Coach 0 proved that. However losing the coveted Logan Young National Recruiting Championship to Notre Dame of all schools, right before playing a talented team such as Clemson has to be devastating to the ego of Satan Saban the Behr Reincarnated.
I’m sure Billy Bob Bammer is suicidal at this point.

Sings “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” I hate that song but right now is the most wonderful time of the year because college football is about to kickoff. How fitting it is to have the craziest Big Orange Roundtablers, Losers with Socks, to be the host this week.
Now call your kids and/or significant other to the computer and STFU because we’re going to the Roundtable.
1. In a perfect world, what time would your UCLA Kick-off start?
For me the perfect time would be 7:00 PM EST. In my perfect world that would give me the time to get my exercise in by throwing unopened jars of baby food at the homeless AKA Bammers, leave plenty of time to blog about how much UCLA sucks ass & watch Judge Judy.
2. Sometimes doing the right thing is tough. Sometimes we have to choose between bad and worse. I have known snipers that get bothered even though what they did was absolutely right. It seems being a coach would have some similar circumstances. Did you think that Coach Fulmer and staff ever lose any sleep over their choices?
I’m sure Coach Fulmer lost sleep over that embarrassing loss to Bama last year but not because of the choices he made but devising a way to enact full revenge for this years game.
I’m sure if we lose a game by three points the coaches will ponder about the choices they made during and before the game, but lose sleep completely….no.
Phil making it rain....
3. Nick Saban is going to start 10 freshmen against Clemson. Why is he doing this and did he just buy another year of grace from the Red Elephant Club?
I’m going to allow Billy Bob Bammer to answer this question. After the 11 arrests unfortunate incidents this off-season, Lord Saban has no choice but to start the freshmen. I’m not sure that Saban will start 10 freshmen against Clemson. It is my belief that Saban is doing what he does best and that is lying through his teeth playing mind games.
If Lord Saban AKA the Behr Reincarnated doesn’t win against Tennessee, Auburn and gets Croomed again then I is sure the Red Elephant Club will be reluctant to give him a pass. Then again he is the most powerful man in football at least according to Forbes and A.I.L. magazine (Alabama Incest Love) so he might get a pass. I’m out of here I gots squirrels to hunt!
4. Critique Lou Holtz as a ESPN “analyst”. Irish and Cock Homer or scripted live rassler?
I personally love Lou Holtz…when he’s not within earshot of me. Holtz is the evil moke announcer of ESPN. Someone says something intelligent Holtz is compelled to disagree. I would say that some of his spoken drivel is scripted but the “Lou Lisp” makes it impossible to tell.
The final analysis is he’s a criminally insane Irish Homer who loves the Cock. Funny thing is neither present day fan base can stand him now.
Oh yeah he sucks at everything he does.
Be sure to stop by all the Big Orange Roundtable members’ blogs for their answers.

Folks it’s time for the roundup of this weeks questions. Since I’m the host I get to choose the two best answers from our esteemed Roundtable members.
Before we begin I have some sad news. We think the creative writers of the Power T have been kidnapped and are in a remote cesspool filled location like Tuscaloosa. So far their captors have not made a ransom demand but we have a team of crack heads crackerjack team of skilled Big Orange Special Forces operatives searching their whereabouts as I type. Let us all pray for their return and the crushing of Alabama.
Alrighty then: On to the roundup
1. One former VOL made the brave choice to testify against some Bammers and has to enter witness protection with a whole new identity, but that also gives him 4 more years of eligibility. Which VOL would you pick and why?
Our newest member, A View from the Hill said:
“That said, I’m gonna go old-school (for me at least) with Jay Graham, because he broke the Bammers’ hearts two straight years, and I think he just scored on the Tide again. Proof…”
Sweet! I like him already
“Our host made an excellent choice with Al Haynesworth, and because defensive tackle would appear to be our thinnest position, I’m gonna take his partner in crime, John Henderson.”
2. Alabama has been given the death penalty and is forced to leave the SEC, at the same time South Carolina decides it can win a lot more in the Sunbelt conference and bolts the SEC. Two teams have to take their place who would you like to see
LWS had the most entertaining answer:
“It is so satisfying to see a a plan come together. The plan that I am talking about is the letter writing campaign that I have advocated to expel this infected program into the void known as the Mountain West Conference. I would think that Clemson would be a logical fit since their fans are not used to “moral” victories like Carolina fans. They expect to win every week unlike SCAR who always finds a way to lose. Georgia Tech would be awesome too. Aren’t they like the original owners of UGA?”
And Fulmer’s Belly was equally as entertaining:
“First, for Alabama, we want the New England Patriots. Let’s replace one cheating team with another. For South Carolina we’ll take Illinois. Say what you will about Zook, but at least we could beat him.”
3. What will be the toughest road game to win and why?
Rocky Top Talk proclaims:
“But then I remembered Auburn. Let’s just say I don’t have fond memories of the Tigers. Any team that can make Jason Allen look like a poor tackler is frightening. Plus, the game is the week after Florida. Lose at Florida, and it’ll be here we go again again . Win at Florida, and it’ll feel like we have it made. Neither scenario is good. Auburn’s talented and well-coached. They generally play us well, and following Florida isn’t a good thing, so I’m saying that’ll be the toughest away game this season.”
Auburn. Coming off an emotional game against the Gators and having to visit the Plains the following week is going to be the most difficult game of the season for the Vols.
Even with a victory against Florida, its next to impossible to recapture that same level of emotion. Not to mention, if the Vols enter the game undefeated, Auburn is going to have extra incentive to hand the Vols their first loss.
4.Could have the great Coach Fulmer handled himself better at the SEC media event when he was asked about the subpoena instead of asking what subpoena?
Gate 21 had the most logical answer but he’s an attorney. I play an attorney on this blog only.
“No. As a lawyer, the worst thing you can have a client do is publicly acknowledge they were served when either: 1) they weren’t served or 2) you want to be able to challenge service despite the fact that the papers ended-up in their hands.”
3rd Saturday in Blogtober had the best answer though
Absolutely and without question. Listen, Fulmer is our coach, and I’m going to support him, but it does no good lying to the media. If you lie to the media, you lie to your own fans because the media is the buffer between the players/coaches and the general public.
All Fulmer had to do when questioned in Birmingham that day was say something like,
“I did receive something that I was informed was a subpoena, but obviously I refuse to talk about that at this time. My lawyers and I will evaluate the situation and work like heck to get it resolved before the season starts. This week is meant for this great conference, 12 prestigious institutions and the student athletes who represent these institutions, and I am not about to let a couple of hoodwinks and swindlers sabotage what this day means to us nationally. I am not interested in the SEC being a laughingstock just because some of the ignorant residents of one state are.”
Now, that would have given the media something to sink its teeth into. It also would have taken some of the focus off of what essentially was a non-situation. Instead, it escalated when it didn’t need to and threatens to rear its ugly head at some point during the season – likely before the Vols head to Auburn.
Listen, I hate, hate, HATE this situation for Fulmer because it’s long dead and in the past. But lying doesn’t do anybody any good, and in this day of modern media and so many different variations of media, you’re not going to get away with it … especially not at a circus like the SEC Media Days in Birmingham. It just could have – and should have – been handled better all the way around. Instead, it turned into a PR fiasco, and led to Fulmer’s statement, which really meant this.
Well this concludes my rein of terror as king for a week. Next week we will have hopefully would have rescued our comrades from the clutches of dirty Bammers. Next week is Moondog Sports turn to host and be king for a week.
A good Alabama team is a beaten Alabama team.
