Welcome to I Bleed Crimson Red, a blog created to share news, commentary and the occasional snark on college sports, politics, and life on the Gulf Coast. We throw in the occasional snark, fark and satire to keep you honest!

Politics has always been a passion in this part of the world.  It has given us colorful characters like Huey Long, demagogues like George Wallace and corruptocrats like Don Siegelman, Richard Scrushy and Edwin Edwards.

College football is religion, here.  When you are born, you are made to declare your allegiance to a college football program and you may never convert.  Such apostasy is punishable by severe ridicule and scorn.  We have three seasons in this part of the world:  Winter, Summer and Football.  Elections are biannual disruptions in the signal-to-noise ratio.  Kind of like the way sunspots interfere with the Saturday afternoon radio broadcast of The Game.
