I've lived through Woody, Earle, Cooper, Tressel, & now Urban. I've had my heart ripped out repeatedly. I respect them as opponents, but truthfully, as soon as the College Playoffs go to 8 teams (inevitable - 5 conference champs & 3 at large) we don't need them to be good. We just have to win the B1G.

So.....you're only imagining your alcoholism. Drink up!

I'm going to have to disagree with you about the arrogant & lazy part. The college football landscape was changing rapidly, and I don't think Earle adapted well to that, but unless you have personal experience with him I'm going to disagree with you. I'd remind you that Woody was 4 - 5 -1 against Bo, and lost the last 3 games against UM. Earle was 5 - 4 against them & although he had a lot of frustrating 9 - 3 seasons, his winning percent at OSU was 75.7%. And I'd add this : I'll take Earle"s passion, his 9-3 seasons, and his wins over UM instead of what Cooper did any day of the week. I hate UM football that much.

One of my favorites. What a fabulous live show he always gave. Damn. I hope "with a little help from his friends" that they bury him "leaving his hat on". RIP.

@BoomCat - Thank you for posting this. I feel the same way. I have been astonished by the number of people on 11W talking about Alabama as if "after we beat them, then we..."
