    Warrick Dunn is an incredible human being. Can't think of someone who does so much, while demanding less attention for doing so than he.

    Humility is just fine. But, saying that God had some ultimate plan in store for you when you lost your job at Alabama, just so you could go to Clemson to win a national championship is just ridiculous.

    I'm not a fan of understanding the sovereignty of God in such a way as to make him out to be cheering in the stands. That said, a player saying, "Glory to God" can be a means of just giving thanks. That it bothers people is odd to me.

    cause it means did the other side that lost who i am sure had people who believe in God just not pray hard enough?

    i heard a phrase yelled at a kid at my nephews coach pitch game "if your thoughts are pure you can do it"

    i was like wtf does that even mean

    if God or Allah or whatever out there is giving a **** about sporting events while children are getting cancer or brutally raped in a dark alley or being kidnapped to be put on Facebook by a gang etc etc

    i think it's what gets under peoples skin that don't think God had anything to do with a game.

    I have no problems whatsoever with players and coaches thanking God after a game. As one with faith as well, I'm always glad to hear it. So long as they are thankful for the abilities given to them. I do not believe God cares at all who wins a football game or in any other sport. I'm not a fan of anyone saying God wanted my team to win.

    It is interesting that Coach Saban has five national championships, but not with an elite QB. AJ McCarron is the best QB Saban has had in college.

    When the season started, not many, I'm one who didn't think so, thought Hurts would be the starter. I figured Blake Barnett would be. He had the better arm and had knowledge of what Coach Saban wanted. But, he never put it together. Jalen Hurts got the chance and took the starter role. Barnett then left the program after four games, giving the perception that he quit on the team(he later transferred to Arizona State).

    Jalen Hurts has great ability, but will need to improve his passing, to be sure. I have the belief in him. Mainly due to his calm demeanor. He wants to get better and I believe he'll work to do so. He's going to be the experienced one. Two other quarterbacks are transferring too. A kid to watch will be a five star player out of Hawaii. He played in the Army All American Game. He'll likely push for playing time next season.

    I understand why both you and Cy feel the way you do. It's perfectly reasonable. I'm just naturally inclined to give people the benefit of the doubt when they invoke religion in a harmless way. Besides, no human should be listening to those sideline interviews in the first place.
    I agree. I am not sure exactly which phrase they are referring to, but when I see an athlete or a coach thank God, I look at as they are thanking him not for helping them win that particular game, but for all the blessings God has bestowed upon them in order to reach whatever pinnacle they have achieved. So they are thanking him for their God-given natural talent, for their intelligence, and for everything else that has led them down the road to where they are now.

    non sequitur

    I think for some that's the case. For others there's more going on. It's like atheists being angry at the God they deny exists.

    No. When they do that, I have no problem with it. That is not what I'm referring to. See: Dabo Sweeney.
