    I suppose it would be the acme of foolishness to wonder who Pat Nix is?

    It's probably from his middle name...

    The article's not wrong. The Plainsmen/Eagle/Tigers are missing their starting QB Pat Nix.

    Go, Dawgs!

    I totally agree with Nick's "rant" and have been guilty myself of expecting most of our games against inferior SEC opponents to all be blowouts. He's just calling out the fan base, and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Everyone is on Mikes case, he probably was dozing off from post thanksgiving meals and simply just didn’t catch his mistake, he always proof reads his work. Am I right? Lol

    Sorry, but Saban owes an apology to the students and supporters of Alabama. Painting the entire fan base as he did shows a lack of awareness. Those supporters, boosters, and students are the reason you are being paid as you are and are the ones providing the facilities you use. And to confuse the “sacrifices” his players make with the challenges many students go through just to attend college is completely tone deaf. Show me the player on his roster working two jobs just to pay tuition.

    @My_Dawg_Ryan I think this means I'm officially a veteran beat writer --- I covered Auburn when Pat Nix was the QB, haha!

    Thanks for the catch!
