Alabama Football: Motivation for The Main Event

By: @LivingCrimson

Bama LSU Battle Royale

It’s time for the 2011 Alabama Crimson Tide to write its name in Crimson Flame.

Here’s some fuel for the fire.

“It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear…”

Powerful beyond measure.

Sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit, and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny. — George Dana Boardman

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith — of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire — may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. — 1 Peter 1:6-7

Alabama players are representing many people on Saturday, not just the well-deserved accolades for the football program. A community and state anguished by nature’s violence, and a teammate and fellow students who lost lives this year. The character of this team has been forged on the anvil of adversity, and has proven true and good.

The Tide will not be denied.
