Do I want to be making a post about this? No. I would rather be looking up #TuaFacts and other stuff to post. But here we are.

Regardless of where you stand on the hotly-debated issues of Bama fandom, I think we can all agree this past offseason had its fair share of contentious discussions. If you're subscribed to this sub, though, chances are you're a Bama fan; and you share that in common with the other people subscribed, commenting, posting, and lurking.

I know it can be frustrating when someone is wrong on the internet. Does it raise my hackles when someone disrespects the QB1 of my heart, Layne Hatcher? Does it grind my gears when people act like Duron Carter wasn't the greatest wide receiver of the Saban era? Does my blood boil when I see Kiffin spelled Kiffen? Of course, obviously, and every single time.

But I try not to be a butthole. "But Doc, I see you being a butthole sometimes!" some of you are angrily screaming at your computers or phones (or both). You're right! I fully admit I'm a butthole sometimes. Everything I'm typing here applies to me as well; so don't think I'm being a sanctimonious, holier-than-thou butthole.

I'm not saying no one is ever allowed to be a butthole. We're all human, so we're all going to be buttholes at some point or another. Just try to avoid it.

Remember reddiquette.

Remember the human. When you communicate online, all you see is a computer screen. When talking to someone you might want to ask yourself "Would I say it to the person's face?" or "Would I get jumped if I said this to a buddy?"

If there are users you know you disagree with, pause before responding to them. Type out your response and then delete it without ever sending it, like Abraham Lincoln would have done if he had the internet.

If you still want to reply to them, try to be civil. Don't reply to them just to be a butthole, even if you think it's funny; and don't repeatedly reply to them just to get their goat. If you just see red every time you see a certain user or users, ignore or block them (I have no idea if you can do that if you're primarily redditting on your phone, but do it if you're on your computer).

Don't post or comment just to pick on a specific user or users, whether you're outright calling them out or subtweeting them. Unless it's to make fun of that time I made a Post Game Thread before the game finished.

C'mon. Don't give the mods more work. I don't want to have to start issuing official warnings and temporary bans (and keeping track of that) for junior high drama. We can and will still have heated debates, discussions, and disagreements. It would be boring as hell if we didn't.

Let's try to keep the buttholishness to a minimum.

Just try to follow the golden rule: Be excellent to each other

Hi, all!

I completely forgot to set my dvr to record this and was wondering if anyone knew where I could find it. So far, I've only been able to find that it will air again on CBS Sports Network. Unfortunately, I only get CBS. If anyone knows of anywhere online or perhaps another CBS air date it would be greatly appreciated!

Roll Tide!

I think a lot of us or maybe just me personally were expecting guys like Raekwon & Mack Wilson, Terrell Lewis to have huge seasons and leave early for the NFL.

With Lewis injured, ge will definitely will be back.

So far Mack has left a lot to be desired though im wondering if he is still dealing with a foot injury. As of right now I dont think he's playing well enough to leave early.

Raekwon is being double teamed constantly and Q is taking all of the shine deservedly so. The season is long and he could get hot but right now i think he comes back.

Thoughts?

Hey people. Roll tide. I'm looking to get a Tua jersey and not get ripped off. Looking for a quality jersey, stitched. Any good sources out there? Experiences with any particular company/web site. I see one on amazon right now but I am hesitant to pull the trigger because it has no reviews.

Pepperidge farms remembers. ESPN doesn't.

Anybody else tired of people complaining about Alabama's cupcake schedule when Clemson literally plays 1 team even close to being ranked all year?
