War Eagle! I think I’m finally beginning to pull out of the fog that was the BCSNG. Don’t get me wrong. It was a great season and one for the ages. Nothing should diminish that. It’s just that I personally wanted this bunch to win the championship so badly…well, because they deserved it. That’s all. Continue Story…

                                                                                                                            (photo:Vasha Hunt, al.com)A hearty War Eagle to one and all. Your resident pessimist has definitely had a shortage of material to whine about this year. I have put off writing this column as long as I could simply to try to get the bitter taste out of my mouth following the Florida State game. Continue Story…
