A&M Reminders in Alabama Weight Room
Alabama may be the two-time defending BCS national champion, but head coach Nick Saban is pulling out all the stops to make sure his team doesn’t forget about the last game they lost: Last year’s 29–24 home upset by Texas A&M.
Thus, every pull-up bar in Alabama’s gleaming new weight room contains a dangling sign with the Aggies’ interlocking “ATM” logo inside a maroon outline of the state of Texas. (It’s visible, if just barely, in the photos below.)
In addition, it appears that the weight room’s televisions are all continuously running footage of ‘Bama’s loss to A&M last fall. For some reason, all we can think of when we hear about and see this is Mugatu brainwashing Derek Zoolander into assassinating the prime minister of Malaysia.
We have a feeling the Crimson Tide will be ready when they roll into College Station on Sept. 14th for the rematch.
