I recieved this by email today.

'Twas the night before Saban, and all through the South
Auburn fans were talking and running their mouths,

Their campus was in top shape and handled with care,
In the hopes that top recruits would soon be there,

The Tigers were all snoozing comfortably in their beds,
While visions of blue chippers danced in their heads,

My wife and I were frustrated since the Tide was in a real fix,
And were hoping they could somehow avoid loss number six,

When out of South Florida there arose such a clatter,
I jumped on the Internet to see what was the matter,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a disciplined coach wearing crimson and white gear,

With a 91-42 record and national championship to kick,
I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick,

He didn't speak a word, he just went straight to work,
But later I heard him mumble "Tuberville is a jerk"

Further into the evening, as Saban toured Bryant Hall,
I thought to myself how Auburn seemed so small,

So I put my houndstooth back on and smiled with pride,
A great era is upon us, one full of "ROLL TIDE".

Neat-o. I also recieved an email today with this:

Shug's House
After Bear Bryant dies and enters the Pearly Gates, God takes him on a tour. He shows Bear a little two-bedroom house with a faded Alabama banner hanging from the front porch.

"This is your house, coach," God says happily."Most people don't get their own houses up here."

Bear looks at the house, then turns around and looks at the one sitting on top of the hill. It's a huge, beautiful two-story mansion with white marble columns and little patios under all the windows. Auburn flags line both sides of the sidewalk and a huge Auburn banner hangs between the marble columns.

"Thanks for the house, God," Bear says. "But let me ask you a question. I get this little two-bedroom house with a faded banner and Shug gets a mansion with Auburn banners and AU flags flying all over the place. Why is that?"

God looks at him seriously for a moment, then says, "Bear, that's not Shug's house. That's mine."
He has got to be better than the last 2 hires...most are just excited about bringing some discipline to the program...which is much needed.
