Louisiana Gets Some Serious Getback At Saban

Revenge (n): Action taken in return for an injury or offense.
karma (n): The total effect of a person's actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person's existence.
Getback (n): What Louisiana-Monroe did to Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide last Saturday.
Did you think I was gonna not post about this one, Nicklaus????
I mean, losing to Louisiana-Monroe ON SENIOR DAY?? Can you say App State? Whew! That felt good.
Not only did Louisiana get the satisfaction of seeing LSU put a lump on your temple, but our smaller brethren even got in on the act. Now, THAT's getback. (I fully expect, that if, the Tide played Southern University, they'd lose also, hell, Redemptorist and Catholic High could beat 'em.)
And, to be sure, some Alabama faithful will say "it wasn't that bad," or "it's okay". Noooo. It's not okay, see, Louisiana-Monroe has such a small profile that, if it wasn't for the word "Monroe" in the school's name, WE WOULDN'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THE SCHOOL IS LOCATED!
Saban even went to calling the loss a "catastrophic event." Why? Because he knows that the school he lost to wasn't even in existence 9 years ago.
"Changes in history usually occur after some kind of catastrophic event," Saban said during the opening remarks of his weekly news conference. "It may be 9-11, which sort of changed the spirit of America relative to catastrophic events. Pearl Harbor kind of got us ready for World War II, or whatever, and that was a catastrophic event."
Short of being a catastrophic event, Louisiana-Monroe used to be called Northeast until it changed names in 1999. So, see, Nick, you really lost to Northeast. And being a former Louisiana resident, that's got to sting!
But ... seriously, life is funny like that.
Now the Crimson Tide prepares for the famed Iron Bowl against the Auburn Tigers. I won't pick a winner, because I respect Tuberville an awfully lot, and I think he's got a lot more to lose, so i'll just say ... Go Tigers!
