Life on the lake with Nick Saban

“Enjoy the Moment” – Coach Nick Saban

Tim Tebow and Marty Smith ‘invited’ themselves to Coach Saban’s lake house.  When asked what’s the greatest threat to excellence?

Complacency (is the greatest threat to excellence).  Being satisfied with where you are.  Complacency creates a blatant disregard for doing what’s right.  You can’t do what you feel like doing.  You have to choose the things that are going to help you achieve the goals that you have.  When you get complacent, you lose respect for winning. – Coach Nick Saban

Lottery Bill Back from the Dead!

The vote will go to the public in November after all.

Thursday the bill was dead on the vine in the House.  Friday, a second vote was taken and three representatives shifted to the ‘Yes’ side agreeing that the lesser of the evils (gambling versus medicaid shortfall) would be gambling.

If passed, 10% of the proceeds will go to the Education Fund with the remainder going to the General Fund.  The first $100M of the General Fund will go to fund Medicaid.  How will you vote?
