vince holmes


Born 1950 in St. Louis, MO. Raised in Jonesboro, AR. Got tired of watching the Razorbacks lose every time I watched them on TV. It is not that they were that bad, I was just bad luck for them.

Spent the 70’s in the Navy. Spent the 80’s watching and coaching 2 sons play soccer.

The first Alabama game I ever watched was the Sugar Bowl after the 92 season. Got Hooked on Alabama football.

Spent the next 15 years wandering aimlessly in the desert waiting for the return of a great Coach to lead the Tide back to the promised land.

In January 1997 Nick Saban came to Tuscaloosa and the rest is HISTORY.

Love SEC football! Maybe because I’m a transplant I want every SEC team to win when they are not playing BAMA

    Every program has their problems. Most programs are defined by how they overcome these problems. Chizik is certainly facing a defining moment........

    It is impossible to tell what direction Auburn will go this week. The problem right now is a staff problem, not the athletes.

    I'll try and reply more to comments, but I just don't always have the time. I've been with B/R for a little over a year now and have posted almost 1,400 comments. Sometimes I just don't have the opportunities to go back and check all the comments.

    LB owned a staffing agency so he had a lot of time on his hands to write for B/R and keep up with the comments on his articles. Not all of us are so lucky :(

    Hey buddy, I'm upright and laptopping from the hospital... I made it thru with 2 stints and at least a year of Plavix treatment ahead of me, but other than that, just fine!
