It probably also wouldn't hurt to contact ACHE, the Alabama Commission for Higher Education, as one of their responsibilities includes facilities planning. ACHE's phone number is 334-242-1998.

UA Board is self-nominating. Auburn and most of the other boards are nominated by the Governor. However, all do have to be Senate approved.

I'd rather have him than when they had Charlie Sheen in Tuscaloosa

THIS IS NOT A BAD IDEA. THE GOVERNATOR ON OUR SIDE?! 04-rock

Called the Governor's office and they said they have been receiving a lot of calls about the OCS and she will keep passing it along to him.

Is he one of the commissioners? I think they got their hands full with the ruination of this region they've brought down on us that have to live here. But thank you, anyway. I hope ya'll stomp a mudhole in alabama and walk it dry this year.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports - contacted!!! I really want to lock in on Scott Stantis, maybe he'll create a caricature that's beneficial to our cause if asked.

Just emailed the Jeffco delegation about supporting the stadium and an equal representation bill in the next legislative session.

Email them if you haven't already done so!

Awesome! Just got a response from Cam Ward (Alabaster) saying he is supportive of an equal representation bill and has talked with others about it. He said he thinks there'll be movement on it in the next legislative session!
