Football loss = 9/11 and Pearl Harbor??

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21903250/

OK, maybe he didn't actually compare his team's 1 touchdown loss to 9/11 or Pearl Harbor but to even invoke it in relationship to a stupid football game shows the overall intelligence level at that school.

C'mon, Nick... it's a FOOTBALL GAME and you lost by one touchdown. Will Alabama be fundamentally changed by losing a stupid game to a (much) lower ranked team? Will the networks pull out and stop funneling the millions of dollars to your salary? Will applications and/or attendance drop? Will the school's most prestigious professors depart for schools as a result of this "catastrophe"? Will the alumni stop supporting Alabama?

Well, OK, on that last one, maybe yes as long as this moron is the coach. But that would be a good thing.

Sheesh.

From what I understand about Alabama football if it had been Auburn he might have a point.

Not news. Media is creating a story. Give the guy a break.

I wish the Dolphins would take this doofus back. I think he could cement the perfect season they're working on.

Losing to who? If he is going to use history thsi is more like the 300 Spartans wiping out the Persian Army, the whole 250,000 of them.

Or perhaps a clear win for the Texacans at the Alamo.

You obviously don't understand the SEC. Every time your team loses it's a disaster of historical proportions on par with the sacking of Rome.

“It may be 9-11, which sort of changed the spirit of America relative to catastrophic events. Pearl Harbor kind of got us ready for World War II, or whatever, and that was a catastrophic event.”

Has a village reported its idiot missing, or has George W. Bush taken to ghost writing speeches?
