<p>Beating up on Oakland as we speak..</p>

<p>D went to the game and said it was a lot of fun. Apparently she's a basketball fan now too :) Roll Tide!!!</p>

<p>What college program can boast a top 3 football team, a top 20 basketball team, and a defending national champion gymnastics team? Only one: The University of Alabama. Actually, there is not even anyone that can claim two out of three of the above.</p>

<p>and the best CC forum in the world...I think that puts The University of Alabama miles in front of the pack. :)</p>

<p>Last year, when Bama's B-ball team was also doing well, it was nice to see their games fully attended. Having year-round top sports for fans to attend brings in more money for the university and more money for T-town!</p>

<p>Does anyone know how much Bama was paid for the Bama-LSU game?</p>
