‘SACKRIFICED’: The front page of the Montgomery Advertiser’s 2005 Iron Bowl sports section will make you smile

But their choice for the morning after the 2005 Iron Bowl, especially when combined with the full-page photo of Brodie Croyle accepting his fate they went with, is brilliant, a perfect bulls eye. It’s nine years later and I’m looking at this thing and I’m just as happy and relaxed as I was in the stadium that day. That day was a good day. Honk, honk, honk.
