Lots of folks have been asking me about the game tonight. Yes... I very much believe Bama is going to beat Sparty. No doubt everyone will say this is because I'm a Bama fan... but I would counter this by saying that Bama is a 10 point favorite.
So pretty much everyone is a Bama fan by that logic.
I'm sure there are die hard Sparty fans out there that truely believe they are a better team than Bama is. Objectively... that's simply irrational. That's ok though. Sports isn't rational. No matter how much we pretend it is.
I can list all the reasons Bama is better than Sparty. I can tell you that Sparty is a great team but it doesn't matter because they are built wrong. Sparty is going to line up and try out Bama Bama. Well you can't out Bama Bama. Sparty isn't the kind of team that gives Bama trouble. But none of that matters. There is a game tonight.
That's what matters.
And... we all know the truth. The truth is... no bama fan.... no bama player... no bama coach... was disappointed or scared or bummed about hearing they were playing Sparty.
We also know that most Sparty fans felt a sinking feeling as soon as they heard they were getting Bama. And there is a rather infamous video that shows at least one of their players felt the same thing.
