Tuberville For Senate?

What?

“Former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville is running for Senate in Alabama as a Republican, he announced Saturday.

“After more than a year of listening to Alabama’s citizens, I have heard your concerns and hopes for a better tomorrow,” Tuberville wrote in a tweet and a statement on a campaign website. “I am humbled to announce the next step — I will be a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.” …”

I will have to think about this.

Tommy Tuberville was the head coach at Auburn for the entire time that I was there. I suppose you could say that I still feel a residual sense of loyalty to him based on identity politics and fond memories of games from my youth. The Bama fans will never stand for it though!

Growing up in the South, I was raised on football like everyone else here. Alabama is a football crazy state. When Richard Spencer gave his speech at Auburn University in 2017, I used the example of Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who won the Heisman Trophy in spite of being credibly accused of sexual assault, beating Auburn in the 2014 BCS National Championship game to illustrate the absurdity of basing your entire sense of identity on college football. Much of the crowd disagreed.

So, I will have to give this Tuberville thing some more thought, and separate my memories and feelings of “cheering on the team” from what he is proposing to do now in politics.

  1. Who cares? He would be just another senator for Israel, wildly applauding Netanyahu and voting to give him billions of dollars and more wars.

    • White or black players, I have never understood the facination for watching grown men chasing a ball between two giant sticks. How many times can you watch the same pointless activity and not get bored?

      I could perhaps understand it, if the players were drawn from the local area only, as at least there would be some kind of organic identity to support. But no. The teams are a commercial entitiy, and the players are multi-racial mercs recruited from far away places. Its exactly like rooting for team McDonalds or team Kentucky Fried Chicken, while believing you are a part of something important. Pea brains.

  2. Soccer is outdrawing football most places today in Division II and III. It will soon break into Division.

    The kids today understand soccer, because they played it when they were children. The co-eds like watching young white men in skimpy uniforms, and soccer is 95% White on the college level.

  3. Since so many white football fans are offended by black players taking a knee and since collegiate and professional spots is a type of virtual Negro worship I propose a new national anthem them to be sung at all collegiate and professional football and basketball events sung to the tune of Auld Land Syne.

    All Hail to thee the God race
    Thy sacred blackness be
    To me and mine a symbol of
    Thy African divinity!
