    I just heard that the Crimson Tide will not be able to play in the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana, as had been announced.

    The reason?

    They can't get past Monroe.

    i'm aware of that...i'm constantly reminding a friend who is a Tide fan about the fact that they lost to ULM; i'm referring to the I-Bowl rumor.

    Monroe, Louisiana(the home of the University of Louisiana-Monroe) is west of Alabama. Shreveport is even further west of Monroe. :)

    Well, I get the joke.

    A Bama alum and I had a good talk about Alabama football. He told me he felt that his guys had a lot to play for, that Saban could turn things around, and despite their recent discipline problems, that things could be reigned in at Tuscaloosa.

    Then I paid him for the pizza and then he left. :laugh:
