Celebrating this hire does ironically mean that we are celebrating the increased likelihood of losing some editions of The Game in the future, and all I can say about that is that while that does entail sometimes unbelievable anguish, the joy of beating a primo TTUN team is, in my experience, an absolute peak life experience! After the 2010 win, I remember reading a Dispatch columnist either remarking or quoting someone else saying that winning The Game wasn't that much fun anymore, and I knew what he meant.
And this hire also marks-I hope-a move away from having to read articles about how Alabama is the center of the CFB universe. The Rivalry is about to resume its rightful place at the very top of all the rivalries in sports. The national importance of this game on an annual basis should be restored quickly.
