Mississippi Territory

The Mississippi Territory

“Oh yeah, I laid in bed two days after that…”- “Randy In Mobile”

What we learned on Finebaum today:

On March 1, 1817, President James Monroe signed an act admitting Mississippi to The Union.  The western part of the Mississippi Territory became a state, and the eastern half became the Alabama Territory. In December of 1817, Mississippi became a state. Alabama followed in 1819.

David Pollack, ESPN College GameDay analyst, is feeling the “Twitter wrath” of  fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

After Bowling Green University’s Tyler Tate kicked a career-long 52 yard field goal against Northern Indiana University in the MAC Championship game, Pollack tweeted:

Pollack was making reference to the performance of Alabama’s kicking game in the “Iron Bowl” last week against the Auburn Tigers.

The tweet did not go unnoticed by members of the number four ranked Crimson Tide – including kicker Cade Foster who responded:

Pollack did a little backpedaling:

Too little, too late. The backlash from the tweet was almost immediate. Tide quarterback, A.J. McCarron, was quick to back Foster:

Other teammates stepped up to defend and reassure Foster:

 

 

 

 

There are more, but you get the picture. Fans were eager to respond to Pollack’s tweet as well.

There were others, even a few Auburn faithful, who joined the conversation:

 

 

It is interesting to note that Pollack did not “tweet” when Tate’s previous 26 yard field goal attempt was missed or when Tate’s following extra point attempt was blocked.

Overall, for the game, Tate was 2 for 3 in field goals and 5 of 6 in extra points.

Had he done his research, Pollack would have known that Foster had hit a 53 yard field goal against Ole Miss earlier this season – one yard longer than Tate’s.

Pollack’s tweet stated, “This kid has a BOOT. He can make it from 60+”.

In reality, Tate’s longest career field goal was the 52 yarder against Northern Indiana.  It is also his ONLY successful field goal from beyond 50 yards.

Cade Foster has never missed an extra point during his career at Alabama.  He is a perfect 63 for 63.

Thousands of Alabama and Auburn fans joined together to support Foster after he received numerous insults and even death threats to his Twitter account during and after the “Iron Bowl”.

A facebook page supporting Foster has received 86,000 likes to date.

The Twitter tag #BamaFansForCade still resonates throughout the “Twitterverse”.

Perhaps this Twitter user put it best:

Judging from these comments, it’s pretty clear that Bama doesn’t wish for “a FG kicker”.  They seem to be pretty happy with the one they have.

“Iron Bowl” week has started early this year. Fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide have already banked the win over the University of Tennessee Chattanooga Mocs this upcoming Saturday.

In light of the recent developments in Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s legal issues, Bama fans are speculating that he may fall from grace as Cam Newton did at the University of Florida.

Die-hard fans of the Tide have long accused Auburn of “buying” Cam Newton for $180,000.00.  There are more than a few who have suggested that Winston may be on the market soon.

We thought we would give you a peek at what the future may hold for “Jaboo”.
