History in the Making
Posted by Bama Mike on Friday November 15 2013 @ 03:08PM CST
[ 2013 Season ]
I was something of a professional student at the University of Alabama in the 70s and 80s. I was there from August 1971 to August 1982. There were a few breaks in there and I did get several degrees and had a great time. I also believe I earned my MBFA (Masters in Bama Football Appreciation). I was there when the Bear rewrote College Football History and the appreciation of fans was an important part of that history. We became believers in a winning tradition that seemed like it would never end.

In 1981 I left the country although I did come back for two summer semesters in 81 and 82. Being in a country where fotbal was much more followed than football it was very hard to keep up with what was happening at the Capstone. There was an English newspaper where I could read the results on Sunday but that was not conducive to keeping my Tide Pride at the level it had been for so many years. That along with the decline in the program after the retirement and subsequent death of Paul Bear Bryant resulted in almost 20 years of my MBFA degree gathering dust.

In 1999 I returned to this country and started getting back into the swing of being a Bama Fan. Franphonie, Shula and that, were'r rolling now baby, coach Made things difficult to get mentally to the level of support that I had been at when I left Alabama. But then came Saban.

Nick Saban is doing the same thing in many ways that The Bear did when he was here. He is rewriting college football history. If Alabama does win out and take the crystal home for 3 times in a row and 4 out of the last 5 years, not to mention that other championship he won at LSU, it will be a feat that will be almost impossible to duplicate. It is why I am now bestowing on myself another degree DBFA (Doctorate in Bama Football Appreciation). As Dr. Bama Mike I feel qualified to predict and clarify a few things.
1. We will win another championship this year
2. We will beat Auburn again
3. Coach Nick Saban will retire here and will not be going anywhere
4. Finebaum's insinuations that he may leave because of the fanatical pressure of the job is totally off base. Saban does not react to outside pressure except to modify and direct it where he wants. He is the only source of pressure on himself. Nothing comes close to that from the outside.
5. The Alabama fan base is probably one of the most diverse groups of people in the world. On many things we would disagree but on Saturday we are all supporting the same thing and we have each others back.
6. Alabama is first in football but Alabama was also First to the Moon.

It is a great time to be an Alabama fan. We have a coach that makes us feel like part of the team even though that can mean he will coach us "up" sometimes when we are not performing at the level we should. it is time to enjoy being a part of history in the making, work towards your MBFA and DBFA and don't ever leave a game early. Someday the present Roll will end but don't ever say that out loud. Roll Tide Roll! See ya at the game.
