TBoone might be a little sharper than you give him credit for here. IIRC, he was one of the more successful LBO guys from back in the day when leverage actually existed. Those guys tend to be very talented and exceptionally bright. I don't buy any of the bunk about AL's wins. The SEC sucked apart from the top two and they lost to the lone other one. The best win was at home over Arky, who looked stupid against Ole Miss and Vandy.
