Tuscaloosa, Ala. Every good Southerner knows there are only two religions in Alabama football and football. This week, a new maxim emerged: When it comes to the state judicial system, theres a lot of crimson hiding beneath those billowing black robes.
Circuit Judge Dan King announced Wednesday he would grant a delay in the civil suit Traywick v. Energen Corporation, which was scheduled for trial Jan. 4 in Bessemer, Ala., a suburb of Birmingham.
Energens defense attorneys want to attend the showdown between the University of Alabama and University of Texas at Austin, scheduled for Jan. 7 at the Rose Bowl. If Alabama wins, it will be the first time in 17 years that theyve claimed the Bowl Championship Series national title, considered by many to be the apogee of college football achievement.
Such an event only comes infrequently during a persons lifetime and is an achievement of such a magnitude that all involved in this litigation should want everyone to fully participate in this achievement, writes Jon Terry, attorney for Energen, in his nine-point motion for a delay.
Because so many lawyers, jurors, and witnesses are planning to travel to Pasadena, Calif., for the game, it would be a hardship, he says. February would be better. Much better.

Too bad their team is going to get crushed.
LOL get real..This is the top SEC team here not some community college team. Texas won’t know what hit em.
My University of Texas Rose Bowl Champions t-shirt from Jan 2006 is starting to fray a bit, so I am glad I will be getting a new one now.
The only, and I mean only reason Texas is playing in this game is the massive help the team received from the Texas officials.
Texas football officials, including some in the Big 12, are as crooked as an epileptic snake.
Nebraska won the game.
Roll Tide Roll
Am i the only one seeing metal horns instead of hook ‘em horns?
A judge with his priorities straight. This Gators says, “Roll Tide!” bring another title home to the SEC.
(But we want our revenge!!!) ;)
Agree. ROLL TIDE
I am a Dog’s fan.. but gotta support the SEC here.. even support the gators (that hurts to day that).
