Monday Morning Required Reading is Back From the Jungle

You know all those beautiful jungle lodges you see advertised in all the travel brochures? This ain't one of 'em.

So last week your humble correspondent had to do some real work so he could afford to loaf off and entertain you lot.

It was more like The Wages of Fear without the nitroglycerin. You sit in the back of a truck for hours on end and get so hot and sweaty that your underwear starts to ride up your.... well, anyway, the food was great.

Dept. of Desperate Political Gambits

Alabama gubernatorial candidate Tim James says he isn't going to cut Coach Nick Saban's salary if elected. Gee, thanks for clearing that up. Here at RBR we prefer to keep politics out of our football, it would be nice if you could return the favor.

If Its Monday We Must Be Moaning About the NCAA

Last week the topic was what would be the reaction of Alabama fans if the NCAA let USC skate over the whole Reggie Bush mess. This week Michigan has to respond to the NCAA's allegations of major violations and folks are starting to scry the tea leaves up there.
