Was the Iron Bowl in Muscle Shoals?

The University of Alabama terminated an employee Monday who played unauthorized music over the Bryant-Denny Stadium public address system prior to Friday’s Iron Bowl.

Who'd a thought you could play a football game inside the old sound studio out on Jackson Highway.

The staffer was part-time, according to UA Public Relations Director Debbie Lane, but has not been named by the university. Two of the pre-game song choices were “Take the Money and Run,” by The Steve Miller Band, and “Son of a Preacher Man,” recorded by Dusty Springfield in 1968 and later by recording legend Aretha Franklin.

Cam Newton and his daddy were the obvious targets.

Pure class, those Rammer Jammers. But, at least they fired the idiot who thought he was a DJ at a frat party instead of a football game.

    Now that’s not so bad, really, I think it’s kind of funny. I’m obviously not a Cam fan or a Barner fan. Playing a little theme music is sure not as bad as the implied violations. But I guess we all better be a little more careful where we point our fingers, right?

    Speaking of Basketball, I wish you would blog about B-ball like you do for the boys of fall. You could call it The Basketball Vols (like they did back in the early ’70s when I was at UT during the Ernie and Bernie Show days! Miss those great basketball games!!

    It would have been ‘acceptable’ if the fans had sung the songs, like soccer fans in England will sing derogatory songs about an opposing player or coach. But for an employee of an institution to do it, not acceptable.
    Funny? Absolutely!

    Blogging on basketball – I’ll take that suggestion as a supreme compliment. Thank you. Unfortunately, it would be a very time consuming endeavor. Focusing on football pretty much takes up the time, and more, that I have for such stuff. Thank you again, though.
