What Southerners Really Feel About Each other
Good Day Fellow Southrons…
I apologize for being out of the loop for as long as I have, but I have been fighting the good fight. The following link is for a Sports Illustrated article:
In this article, Former Head coach for Grambling State University in Louisiana spoke of his admiration of the departed, but never forgotten Paul "The Bear" Bryant of the University of Alabama.
The quote is:
Robinson remains in awe of the men he still trails. He was introduced to Stagg at a coaches’ convention in 1956 and was so excited he couldn’t speak. Robinson isn’t sure whether he ever met Warner, who died in 1954, but he knows that when he began his career at Grambling in 1941 he used Warner’s famous double-wing offense. As for Bryant, well, Robinson almost genuflects when the Bear’s name comes up. "If Coach Bryant had continued, the only way I could have caught him was if he lost a lot," says Robinson. "And I wouldn’t have been able to stand that. I used to call him Lord."
Just goes to show what Southerners really feel about each other, regardless of what agitators may say otherwise.
