The Alabama Crimson Tide's sound man, responsible for playing Steve Miller Band's "Take the Money and Run" and Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" for Cam Newton as the Auburn Tigers took the field last Friday, has been let go. This is what happens when you put Cousin Earl in charge of billion-dollar sound equipment. I mean no offense to the world's many upstanding Cousin Earls. My middle name is Earl, and I have cousins.â†µ
No word on whether Bama is also kicking out the students who threw customized Monopoly money Newton's way. Roll Bama Roll is not happy either way:

Personally, I would have put prison bars in the Fail Room along with a nice photoshopped image plastered on the wall, maybe with the Eric Ramsey 60 Minutes interview airing on the jumbotron, and then top it all off with some PSA's during the game on the jumbotron with criminal defense attorneys discussing the relevant portions of federal statutes regarding bribery, racketeering, and money laundering.â†µ
