"The Players Dorm"
No way? You don't say...
You bring in Nick Saban to coach your football team and 10 players have been arrested in the year he has been there!!!
Shocking. Okay, NOT!
Silly us, we at the Clarion had this quaint notation that University of Alabama's mission was education related. After all, we read the school's mission statement as it is publicly defined on the UA website, "To advance the intellectual and social condition of the people of the State through quality programs of teaching, research, and service."
Of course, one had to doubt the veracity of that hoo-ha when Coach Saban was given a salary that is greater than the President of the University, the Dean of College of Arts & Sciences and the Governor of the state of Alabama, combined.
