The Crimson Elephant verdict
Given the opposition, and the obvious “purpose” of this contest, several segments that are usually included in the “Crimson Crossover” have been eliminated this week.
With the acceptance and understanding that both Alabama and Georgia State fans have about the upcoming (homecoming) game in Tuscaloosa, insulting the intelligence of the reader with “in-depth details” would simply be preposterous. The writing is on the wall…in rather big letters.

College football is a business, and right or wrong, games like these are simply part of the business. Every major program in the nation makes the "exchange" at least twice a season, and October 5 just happens to be one of those times for the Crimson Tide.
