Eh tu, Oliver?
Now we know why Oliver Robinson retired. Really slimy if true.

Raking in cash while convincing his constituents to live in poison. Nice.

RE: Eh tu, Oliver?
Business as usual in Alabama's political life. Those who have been caught / exposed and those not yet discovered seems to be the only constant. Kind of puts a different light on those who trumpet "Alabama values" in their campaigns.

If the legislature follows through with requiring a civics test about government to graduate, will it ask about how things are ACTUALLY done in state government or only how they are SUPPOSED to be done?

Hell no. Whatever he has done has no bearing what he did on the court.

Hell yes! What he did on the court pales in comparison to the evil he has been involved in lately. He is now an embarrassment to UAB. See Richard Scrushy.

RE: Eh tu, Oliver?
A. His banner hangs because of his basketball accomplishments.
B. He is only accused and has not yet been convicted.
C. In 20 years, he has also done a lot of good things for his district.

If they disassociate from Oliver, they need to disassociate from Jack Williams too.

RE: Eh tu, Oliver?
While he will always be a Blazer legend, if this is true he will be remember more as a failed politician. In the latter years those who knew Oliver, saw Oliver as drinking the Crimson Kool-Aid. He attended more UA sporting events and functions than UAB .
I understand split loyalties if family and business consideration are in play but if you lay with dogs you get fleas .Oliver after 20 years in Montgomery knew how to get things done, remember how he was such an advocate when UAB needed him to speak, you know he stood up like Smitherman and Williams....nm.
Oliver great basketball player terrible Representative for his community no loyalty to his constituents.

Just because someone is affiliated with UAB in some way, doesn't make them a god. Scrushy, there were some doctors that got busted for research fraud at some point, Jack Williams has done some questionable things, etc.

No one is saying that. But his jersey hangs in the rafters and he is in the UAB hall of Fame for what he did on the basketball court, not what he did as a legislator

I'm just saying this is much bigger than basketball.

Right, I wasn't trying to say his jersey or whatever should be taken down either. Hell, I think Scrushy's name could still be on the SHP building, he paid for it

He may have provided the funding, but I think it is debatable that HE paid for it. 03-lmfao

And don't forget the PAC to PAC transfer of Mississippi Choctaw casino money through the Christian Coalition that was given to the Riley campaign intended presumably to block any Alabama lottery laws from seeing the light of an election day. So far, none have.
