  • "God Made a Bammer"

    Bammer meaning Alabama fan.

    Now, this video could have just as easily been made about us. And I'm sure there are plenty. I don't like throwing stones at Bama or Kentucky for being redneck, because we are all equally redneck. Over on a Bama message board this morning, they are making fun of us good Tennessee folk. I mean, come on guys. Pot, kettle, black for crissakes.

    I'm linking this touching video "God Made a Bammer" anyhow.

    Ah yes, rivalry jokes . . .

    What happens when a Cal fan takes Viagra?
    He gets taller

    Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, a classy Cal Fan and an old drunk are
    walking down the street together when they simultaneously spot a
    hundred dollar bill. Who gets it?
    * The old drunk, of course; the other three are mythical creatures.

    Q : How do you come to own a small business?
    A : Start a large business and put a Cal grad in charge of it.

    a Cal fan stopped at a gas station in Lafayette Louisiana.
    While there, the Cajun attendant told the Bear this riddle:
    “My mama has a child who’s not my brother and not my sister. Who is it?”
    The Cal fan was dumbfounded. “Gee, I don’t know. Who?”
    “It’s me!” replied the attendant.
    Upon returning to school, the Cal fan couldn’t wait to try the joke out on
    one of his friends. He asked the first one he saw,
    “My mama has a child who’s not my brother and not my sister. Who is it?”
    “Hmmm … I don’t know.” replied the friend.
    The Cal fan answered, “It’s some little Cajun fella in Lafayette Louisiana!”

    Why do Cal football players like smart women?
    Opposites attract.

    Q: What does the average Cal player get on his S.A.T.?
    A: Drool.

    Q: How do you get a Cal cheerleader into your dorm room?
    A: Grease her hips and push.

    Q: How do you get a Cal graduate off your porch?
    A: Pay him for the pizza.

    Q: How many Cal freshmen does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: None. That’s a sophomore course.

    Q. What do you call a Cal grad with a PAC-12 Championship ring?
    A. A thief.

    Q. How many Cal fans does it take to make popcorn?
    A. Over 100. One to hold the pan, three to shake the stove,
    one to hide the bong as the police arrive and the rest to complain
    that they missed the recruiting party.

    Hear about the Cal fan who lost $50 on the football game?
    He lost $25 on the game and $25 on the instant replay.

    Q: What did the Stanford grad say to the Cal grad?
    A: Will the defendant please rise.

    Q: There are 4 Cal players in a car. Who is driving?
    A: The police

    Two Cal scholars were walking through the woods and came upon a set of tracks.
    The first Cal scholar said “Those are deer tracks.”
    The second one said “Nope, they’re too big for deer tracks. They must be elk tracks.”
    As the debate raged on they were hit by a train.

    Q: What does a tornado and a Cal cheerleader have in common?
    A: They both eventually end up in a trailer park.

    Q: What is the difference between a Cal cheerleader and a catfish?
    A: One has whiskers and smells; the other is a fish.

    Two Cal football players were down on 6th street partying up a storm.
    They were hootin’, hollerin’ and yee hawin’ when the bartender asked them why they were celebrating. The smart one said proudly that they had just finished a jigsaw puzzle and it only took two months.
    “Two months!?” exclaimed the bartender. “To complete a simple puzzle?”
    The player replied, “Yeah, but the box said 4-6 years.”

    Did you hear the Cal fan library burned down?
    The saddest part was that half the books weren’t colored in yet.

    Q: How many Cal fan players does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: Only one. But he gets money, a car, and three credit hours for it.

            I always wondered what the south would have done if they had never been forced to allow the black students to attent their schools (obviously not the HBCU). What would they have done, knowing their love for football and winning?

              BTW in that video, you see a crazed Bama woman attacking some Oklahoma students. Now that I see her story, I can see why she did it. I've almost done the same thing, but didn't want to get thrown out. Having jerk fans around you can make a game a miserable experience.

              Dickson, integration would have come even without college football. It may have expedited it some. The nation is still quite divided by race when you think about it.

              One of the great stories about integration in SEC football was when the first black SEC player (Nat Northington of Kentucky) sacked Archie Manning in a game in Jackson, where Ole Miss used to play many of their games. Manning, being the class person he is, jumped up first in order to help Northington up, saying "good hit." That was Manning's way of telling the crowd to be nice.

                I was talking a little fantasy there, that being what if the south had had a choice? Would their love for football and winning have had them saying...."we need the black athlete, we can't compete with USC/Michigan without them".

                Back in the day a 4x1 team from Grambling, Southern U, Texas Southern, would have destroyed the SEC champion.

                  You have it backwards. The Federal government forced southern schools to integrate, but these schools' athletic programs integrated long after the fact. For example, Alabama was forced to admit its first Black students, Vivian Malone (Eric Holder's sister-in-law) and James Hood at the barrel of a gun in 1963, but Wilbur Jackson became the first Black football player to be offered an Alabama football scholarship in 1970 and he played his first game in 1971. So Black students were at all the SEC schools long before they were allowed to participate in athletics at these schools. Without the government forcing the issue, there's no telling how long it would have taken for us to see Black athletes playing for SEC football teams, because those states sure as hell weren't going to integrate the entire school just to recruit better athletes.

                  I can't think of any instance in history in which oppressors voluntarily ended their oppression out of the goodness of their hearts, there's always been some sort of pressure put on them before they relented - usually violence, the threat of violence or economic pressure.

                    That's basically what happened when Bear Bryant got USC to play them at Legion Field in 1970. Legend has it that after the Trojans and Sam Cunningham embarassed the Tide, the fans left the stadium demanding that the team integrate. However, Bryant's hands would have still been tied if the school's segregation policy hadn't already been abolished seven years earlier.

                      If northern schools had been more aggressive into their recruitment of black players, the shift in balance of power would have necessitated a sooner transition in the South. Ohio St integrated the football team in 1942 and there where other 'D1' colleges earlier (e.g., BC in 39).

                        That hurt. Come on bro, did ya think all us football fans don't know that story? I have read "BEAR", great read for any colege football fan.

                        Bryant said this..."the thing with the black athletes is that if they trusted in you, they'd run into a brick wall for you, very loyal".

                        I'm just curious about just what would those southern schools do if it had been left up to them? They don't have to have the black students/athletes, so they'd do would .....what? As they watch Herschel Walker at Ohio State, Bo Jackson at UCLA?

                          And Jackie Robinson played for UCLA in 1939 and Paul Robeson played for Rutgers in 1915.

                            I would have been shocked if you didn't know it. What makes you think I was questioning your knowledge? Mainly what I was doing was setting BillVol straight on the chronology of SEC football's integration.

                            By the way, you probably have me beat when it comes to college football history, but I think I might have you beat when it comes to Civil Rights history.

                            That's a good question. How different would SEC football look today, if "Brown vs Board of Education" had gone the other way?

                              Growing up in the south there is no doubt you know more about cival rights than this Cali guy who never saw anything remotely close to what went on back there.

                              I 'm guessing after a few USC 42 Florida 17, Ohio State 38 Alabama 10 in bowl games, the SEC would have had enought and start recruiting the black athletes. Football being more important.

                              There is no need to play pretend, that size with speed thing is unique to the black athlete.
