Bama.. Due to my ineptness in economizing my laundry list, when at the checkout counter I too had to make one of those 'Bud Light vs Toilet Paper' decisions.. Of course I chose wisely with the Economy Size 12 pack of Gillette Mach III razors until I read this thread.. and now, to what I expect to be your delight, I have soiled myself, Laughing hysterically at Ima Douchebag, I was left wishing that only the article had mentioned Bangors and Mash..

Only to make matters worse for myself I come across the fabled 'Agitprop'.. I think that sums up the sheer brilliance of this thread.

Bear bryant still sucks,

I'm not sure where they make those sportscoats, and I will readily admit that I've seen better.

But note: they wear those to STAND OUT. To stand out at a Bama game, you have to wear attractive clothing.

And I was wondering, when the auto plant in Tuscaloosa (an industrial city first, college town second) hires new employess, do they hire a lot of Bama graduates? And if so, do they teach them remedial English, or just use pictures to show them what to do?

"THE University of Alabama."

Bah. You're still bitter that CNN and others occasionally refer to Bama as "Alabama-Tuscaloosa" to differentiate the school from UAB, the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Besides, you mean "THE University of Alabama that doesn't produce engineers (see: Auburn) or doctors (see: UAB), but rather causes this state to fester with the last group of people it needs more of: lawyers."

(Yeah, I know, Bama claims to produce engineering graduates, but France claims to have an army - and I haven't seen them win too many wars in the last century.)

Lemonite:

I also use toilet paper and Mach III razors, but I would suggest you upgrading to Michelob Light, a "premium" American beer. I would never suggest you find yourself without toilet paper, as you often seem to have accidents when reading my posts.

Achtung Bubba:

You seem to be aware of it, but The University of Alabama does produce engineers, doctors, lawyers, etc. A sibling of mine is now an MD after achieving a degree from The University of Alabama, followed by a Medical Degree from The University of Alabama School of Medicine, which happens to be on the campus of UAB.

As for the hiring practices of MB-USI, I am not sure of their policy, but I do know of several Bama grads who work there.

31-7.

"...happens to be on the campus of UAB."

Gee, I wonder why it's not in Tuscaloosa...

<snicker>

And, sure, Bama produces engineers, but they suck at it. Auburn doesn't try to make lawyers; Bama shouldn't try what others can do so much better.

And, oh yes, when academics (or lack thereof) is mentioned, Bama fans fairly consistently bring up football. I wonder why that is.

But you guys also stay pretty silent about the NCAA violations that get you those wins - the latest (and the third in a decade) being a hair's breadth from the death penalty.

But hey, you guys win games, so what does it matter, right?

And, either way, we're coming to Tuscaloosa this year... and Bama has yet to score a single point against Auburn in Tuscaloosa.

Because Birmingham is the population center of the state.

And isn't Auburn the most penalized athletic program in the SEC?

Maybe, but we don't bring up athletics to make up for deficiencies in academics... because we don't have to.

On my way to Atlanta, I spent the night in Tuscaloosa. I was suprised to see a Mercedes plant in Alabama. I had some generic taco food that made the drive the next day very long and uncomfortable.

As far as football goes,
BRING IT!

goes into BOOMER SOONER rant

Notre Dame, Our Mother
Tender, strong and true,
Proudly in the heavens, Gleams the Gold and Blue, Glory's mantle cloaks thee, Golden is thy fame,
And our hearts forever, Praise thee, Notre Dame. And our hearts forever, Love thee, Notre Dame.


( I think this is where we are usually bombarded by TheU2 and all the great Notre Dame coaching legends.. This is truly a sad moment.. such a brilliant mind, such comedic timing, and wow.. Some Amazing Wedding Plans)

I love Taco Casa! We have those in Birmingham too. They still have a "Taco Burger," much like Taco Bell's old "Bell Beefer."

I will say this about Tuscaloosa: better barbecue.

There used to be a "Red's Backyard BBQ" en route to Opelika, and it was amazing. For some odd reason though, it went out of business; perhaps there were simply too many other restaurants between it and the students.

Now, there's Country's Barbecue (decent, but not great), and a slew of local barbecue establishments. The problem with the local establishments is that - as good as they may be - they refuse to offer anything but mustard-based sauces.

Compared to the glory of a molasses- or tomato-based sauce, mustard-based barbecue sauce simply isn't that good...

...and I have it on good authority that Tuscaloosa has really good barbecue.

Of course, this entire discussion ignores the all-important burger, and I submit for your consideration: MILO'S.

I've decided that Milo's actually doesn't have the best burgers on Earth (an honor reserved for McGuire's in Pensacola), but it easily has the most ADDICTIVE.

McGuire's has the chardonney of burgerdom.

Milo's has the heroin.

Regarding Tuscaloosa barbecue, there is one word known all over the Southeastern Conference: Dreamland. It is the original location, an aged building in a bad part of town.

Is Byron's Barbecue still in Auburn? I went there a few times in the mid-90s; I enjoyed it greatly. Country's is good, but it is a (local) chain restaurant that I usually have enough of whenever I am in Montgomery, Troy or Dothan. One thing I like about Country's is the different "hotness" levels of there sauce, white being the hottest (and my usual choice). I think my favorite restaurant (non-barbecue) in Auburn is Amsterdam's on Gay Street, though my wife prefers Traditions at Toomer's Corner.

Milo's is indeed addictive; they put one in the food court in the building where I work and I have a hard time avoiding it. Isn't it a shame they closed/converted the one in Auburn? I heard a rumor that the franchisee wanted to sell beer, and that is why he changed it to his own place.

Next time you are in Birmingham, I would suggest you try Harry's Place in Riverchase, or Hamburger Heaven in Brook Highland or Irondale.

I will have to try this McGuire's the next time I am in the 2nd oldest city.

They closed all of the Denny's here a few years ago; there may still be some on the coast.
