    That sucks.

    Maybe the guy who's face he stomped on is a match and would be willing to donate.

    Going to become a bigger societal issue with the amount of diabetics now.

    Dear god, cannot even talk about a VFL in danger of his life without bringing up politics.

    Big Al was just at Tin Roof 2 a couple weeks ago. Maybe he was in the [uck fay]it stage.

    I think he's been in and out of that stage for awhile.

    Best wishes for Haynesworth. He and big John were a pair like we'll probably not see again playing next to each other.

    I don't know Albert, as I am 50, but we went to the same High School in SC. I lived in SC for 7 years and graduated from Hartsville before returning to TN to attend TTU. When UT was recruiting him I told my sister that our parents needed to invite him over for dinner to help seal the deal. She was a PE teacher at the time at another school and she said she had Albert's girlfriend (probably had more than one LOL) in her class and that he was all Vol.

    So I have followed him with both his ups and downs including his embarrassing behavior. Would love to meet him someday and talk about coach Sanders (RBs) my no nonsense PE teacher, the Red Foxes, and if I can get away with poking the bear, kid with him about Theo's Pleasure club.

    Perspective: Fame, Wealth, Athlete and his health/kidneys go out one weekend after years of decline

    I am a youtube star LOL from 1985
    I played Trumpet and stomped all over Williams Brice before kakilacky joined the SEC:

    I seem to recall that he was wearing a purple LL Bean backpack with “BIG AL” embroidered on the back in hot pink thread the first time I saw him. They gave him massive shit for it, and he took it well, only saying that his grandmother(?) bought it for him before he left for Tennessee, and he continued to wear it even after he had his gear issued.

    That said a lot to me, about him, however brief of a glimmer as it was.

    He loves to go Jeeping. I’ve meet him a few times riding.

    He’s a big man. He’s also been extremely nice and a bit of a redneck the times that I’ve meet him.

    Guy at work shares a boat dock with him. Days he would give you the shirt off his back.

    RockyHill Loves Auburn more than Tennessee.

    I don’t think so. My parents live close to a mile from Fort Loudon. You could hear him going down the lake from our house. I did watch him about take out some kids who’d fallen off a tube in the middle of the channel one day.
