Alabama fans driving to the Independence Bowl in Shreveport along Interstate 20 might want to consider a detour. Hixson Ford of Monroe has put up this billboard at a cost of $12,000 to celebrate Louisiana Monroe's 21-14 victory over the Crimson Tide on Nov. 17.
That game, of course, was played in Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa because as we all know, Southeastern Conference teams don't like to play nonconference road games. The league schedule is just too damn demanding to allow it.
Oh, before we forget, the Crimson Tide got rolled by a so-so Florida State team in their only nonleague appearance on the road. Do we see a pattern here? SEC team plays nonconference game on the road. SEC team loses.
We thank Erik over at one of our favorite sites, Deep South Sports, for finding this billboard. And remember to look at our Billboard's Best contest from last offseason.
