It's the meeting grounds for the emotions of gratitude, longing, celebration, and grace. - Sandra McCracken

Football is a religion in the Deep South, and its prophets are revered accordingly. Pat Dye, Gene Stallings, and of course the blessed Bear Bryant are names as familiar to me as Charles Wesley or Martin Luther. I'm not kidding. So it is with slight incredulity (SERIOUSLY?! Because of one season?!) and a hand over my heart I say farewell to Auburn's football coach. Tommy Tuberville, we hardly knew ye. Enjoy your six million in severance pay and know that you will be remembered fondly.
