    With you. That’s ideal. Jalen gets his but tua gets what he was owed last year.

    The University really seems bent on fucking up the handling of this Culverhouse stuff.

    The guy has a fucking op-ed in the Post about us returning his donation because he spoke out against the abortion law and the best response they can muster is we returned it because his expectations were "inconsistent with academic integrity and independent administration."

    This shit's in the court of public opinion now and vague statements like that aren't gonna cut it.

    I don’t think returning the donation has anything to do with the abortion ban. I do think it’s a convenient excuse for Culverhouse, though.

    I certainly hope not, but we're at the "show the receipts" point of this if it isn't the case.

    He didn’t just criticize the law. He was actively encouraging students to boycott UA and go to other schools in the state. I wouldn’t want my largest donor out beating the drum for my demise, regardless of anyone’s opinion on the abortion law.

    It makes UA look really bad to frame it the way Culverhouse is framing it, but I think there’s a lot more to the story than he’s letting on. And the university’s response has been weak as hell.

    The guy is full of shit. He felt so strongly about the abortion law that he waited 2+ weeks to issue a statement? He’s clearly trying to save face because he got wind UA was going to return his donation.

    He was getting his money back regardless of the abortion law. He’s using the abortion law to save face because it is embarrassing to have an institution refund you $26mm because you are a douche.

    UA is taking the high road by not putting him on blast.

    Hanging in there man. Thanks for asking man. I appreciate it. Still have my days or moments when it hits me again but it's a process. I hate to say it but I'm the least excited for football season in a while. Those Saturdays will be tough every week.

    A couple of great LBs in Alabama this year between Kennedy and Robinson.

    I think Kennedy will play inside for us.

    24/7 article says LSU wanted Kennedy to pass rush primarily and that we sold him on the Moses role ie he wants to drop into coverage. Smart thinking imo.

    If he grew up a huge Bama fan and his room is decked out with Alabama stuff still, I wonder why he committed to Auburn at one point? Depth chart or got caught up in the moment?

    It's just a shame they waited until a day after every outlet in the country ran with his version of events.

    Perhaps next time they won't be as slow or courteous in reaction when someone paints us as being on the bad side of arguably the most hot-button issue currently going on.

    Jezebel apparently got ratio’d yesterday for some clickbait bullshit about UA educating Jeff Sessions. I guess they didn’t bother to look up Hugo Black or colonel_forbin

    We may be getting Will Anderson soon as well. Another Top100 DE/LB.

    This sounds like he committed and just didn’t want to announce yet.

    “The Tide entered this past weekend No. 1 ahead of Georgia Tech and LSU on the list for elite edge rusher Will Anderson. Coming out of his return visit to Tuscaloosa, sources to the Hampton (Ga.) Dutchtown product feel as though Alabama only strengthened its standing for Anderson. While a commitment was not announced over the weekend, the Tide is still trending here. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Anderson make an announcement this month.”

    Anybody that ever believed a single bit of Culverhouse's idiotic version of events, even before the release of the emails, is an imbecile. It made ZERO sense.
