12th October
written by Todd Cheatham

Greetings Bama Fans from Jack,

The Tide continued to roll with a great win Saturday night over Arkansas.

The time has come for the traditional 3rd Saturday in October game, if you are old enough to remember that phrase, playing Tennessee at 2:30 PM. It will be another tough road game for BAMA.

Tide Trivia Fact.  What member of the 1961 championship football team went on to coach at Tide archrival Tennessee?

If you’re planning on watching the game in the Chicagoland area, please join us at either of our two official University of Alabama Chapter watch locations that support Roll Tide Chicago’s scholarships.  The Houndstooth is located at 3369 N Clark St. in Chicago.  The Cubs have a playoff game Saturday, the time to still be announced.  Please arrive 2-3 hours prior to kickoff to get seats.  There are no reservations at “The Tooth” and it is based on a “first come, first serve” basis.   Alumni will be there to greet you as soon as you enter. The Houndstooth’s web site for further details is

In the suburbs, Another Round, is located at 5141 Main Street in Downers Grove. Another Round will be open also and ready to greet all the wonderful BAMA fans.  We have a private area to the far left as you enter the bar.  Within this watch area, is a large room with couches and comfortable chairs that can be reserved for a donation to the scholarship fund.  Send email to if interested.  Another Round’s web site is

If you need to reach us or have any questions prior to the game, please visit our web site at or send us an email at

Lisa, Linda, Bobby, and Todd will be at The Houndstooth and available to answer any questions you may have.  Note: The Houndstooth will  open at 11 AM.  We suggest arriving 2 hours prior to kickoff for a table.  Any time afterwards it will be Standing Room Only or a line out the door.  This is another SEC battle and TN, although ranked, is determined to “knock us off” the #1 spot.  Lastly, there is a Cubs game scheduled for 7:08 PM.  Shouldn’t cause any issues but arrive early just in case.

Mia, Cathy and I will be at Another Round to assist you.  Hope to see you there.
