Roll Tide Everyone!

I hope everyone enjoyed the Ole Miss game.  It looks like the team is really coming together.  Next on the schedule is Texas A&M, who has been playing well recently.  Game time is 6:15 Saturday.


Who was Coach Bear Bryant’s only Heisman Trophy winner?


I do want to clarify information about our watch location in Downers Grove.  The watch location at Another Round has NOT moved to another location.  The Chicago Chapter Alumni Association watch location is still Another Round, which is the only official suburban location which raises funds for our scholarship fund.  This support makes it possible to continue to provide scholarships to Chicago and Illinois students.  If you live in the suburbs please join us at Another Round.  We had a great and supportive crowd there last Saturday.  Be sure to check out our tables for memberships and BAMA merchandise at all 3 of our locations.

If you’re planning on watching the game in the Chicagoland area, please join us at any of our three locations which are the only locations that support our scholarship funds.

The Houndstooth is located at 3369 N Clark St. The Houndstooth’s web site for further details is www.houndstoothsaloon.comThe Cubs will play Saturday, time still to be announced.  Be sure to arrive early to ensure getting a table.
