Preface, I'm an LSU fan and I hold no bad blood towards Saban. He won us a title. I'll take it. As for the question, I don't really care if it's stolen, I'm just curious.
One of LSU's main traditions is the H-goalpost. As far as I know we're the only school to still have one. There was a time in the 80s when the NCAA mandated the T-style, so to make up for it, LSU took a part of the goalpost and put above the locker room door. The old 1954 goalpost now has the word "WIN" on it and tradition says that players slap the goalpost on the way out to the field.
But I was watching a video for this week's game (http://www.youtube.com/user/ibockm1) and saw the same thing from Bama players.
Is this a tradition at Bama? Is there a reason, or did Saban "borrow" it from his time on the bayou?
