Poor Shula decision hurts Tide again

Alabama came up huge against Florida, only to have the great victory spoiled by a terrible injury to the gifted Tyrone Prothro.

Reminding us of Shula's stupid decision last year to leave Brodie Croyle in with a big lead over Western Carolina, which resulted in losing Croyle to a season-ending knee injury, now we've lost Prothro for the rest of the way. We had no business throwing at the end zone with the starters in the fourth quarter. You play more conservatively with a big lead because Tide tradition is winning with class -- we aren't out to embarrass other teams -- and so you don't risk injuries!

What a shame that Tyrone Prothro paid the price for Mike Shula's low-class move!
