Alabama Football

Fans in Tuscaloosa have to wonder what has happened to their beloved football program. Alabama reportedly has already been turned down by Steve Spurrier and Nick Saban for the open head coach slot after the recent firing of Mike Shula. Yesterday came the news that Rich Rodriguez of West Virginia also has turned down the Tide. This news was extremely shocking because everyone including Alabama athletic director Mal Moore felt it was a done deal. Rodriguez has guided the Mountaineers to three straight Big East titles and four straight New Year’s day bowl games. My gut tells me Rodriguez went through this process to get a raise in West Virginia and solidify him as the coach there for many years to come. The question is what is Alabama going to do next? Where do they turn and how do they right this ship? The names being tossed around are Paul Johnson (Navy), Jim Grobe (Wake Forest), and Jeff Tedford (California). I think they should just bring back Mike Shula since they are paying him a ridiculouos amount of money til the end of the time anyway, but that would just be silly or would it?  Stay tuned for more because I think the shenanigans are far from over.
