COMMENTARY

May 8, 2009

I would like to congratulate the fans of The Ohio State University for packing in almost ninety six thousand fans to watch the Buckeye spring game breaking the record previously held by the University of Alabama.

However I have a question….
When Alabama recorded attendance for the spring scrimmage of almost ninety four thousand back in 2006, northeastern “sports writers” (I use that term loosley)…
Slammed the Alabama faithful by calling them….
“tobacco spitting hicks packing the stands waiting for the glory years of yesterday to return.”

Some of the “writers” went as far as to suggest that…
“southerners as a whole put too much emphasis on football”
Really?

So where are THOSE writers when proud Buckeyes filled the Big Horseshoe to capacity?
No where to be seen or heard….
You want to know why?

Because “they” don’t like us in the South….
and more specifically they despise the Southeastern Conference….

You think it ends there?
It doesn’t….
The most recent article on Fox Sports website with a link to the Trojan Loving “College Football News” opens with a picture of Alabama’s Coach Saban titled…
“Low Tide”….
We haven’t played a game in 2009…
Yet they title their article “Low Tide”?

They went on to “suggest” that the mighty Trojans of Southern California WILL be playing in the National Championship game next season….

But you want to know what else they failed to mention?

Not a word about the fact the “mighty” Trojans are starting a “new” quarterback or replacing a defense…
Or the fact they have a schedule that is softer than Charmine bathroom tissue…
Or play in a conference that produces competition that is about as stiff as a Twizzler…

But more importantly….

They didn’t mention a word about the NCAA Investigation into Reggie Bush and the University of Southern California.

The very same network that couldn’t wait for the NCAA Investigation before they pronounced Oklahoma “guilty” when two football players made “almost” nine thousand dollars over the summer at a local car dealership.

The same network that called the Alabama textbook investigation…
“A Scandal”

Yet a player from Southern California can have his family live in a 750K house rent free…
Accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars from a registered sports agent…

Or have a wide receiver from the University live in a $4500.00 a month apartment “rent free” for a year in a half…

Because “he didn’t know he had to pay rent…..”
And that’s all O.K. right?

The NCAA wants the Southern California case to go away and so do the networks.
Why?

Because it’s only us dirty tobbaco spitting Southerners that cheat…
That takes our football “too seriously..”

They hate us because of Tim Tebow..
Because of Hershel Walker…
The Wishbone..
Urban and Les…
Howards Rock…
And
Danny Ford…
And
Bo Jackson…
Nick
Mike the Tiger
And
The Bear…..

They hate us for our Character…
Because they have so little of it…

They hate us for our passion..
Because they don’t feel it…

They hate us for our Championships…
Because we are simply better than they are…

So if it’s alright with the fine folks from FOX Sports and the College Football News we will go ahead and play the games this year before they decide to give the trophy to Saint Pete’s Trojans.

But before I leave you this week…

Where is the NCAA Investigation into Reggie Bush and the Southern California Trojans?

Speak up NCAA…
PAC 10 Conference…
ESPN…
FOX SPORTS….
College Football News….

We Southerners are a patient people…
When we aren’t spitting tobacco waiting for the glory days of yesteryear and taking our College Football too seriously.

But make no mistake..
We are waiting…

And before you ask…
No, I will not let this go…
