Ebony and Ivory
Live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard
Oh Lord, why don't we ?
If Governor George C. Wallace had a crystal ball and could look into the future to see the two QB system work effectively in my Dynasty, he might not have been standing in the doorways at the University of Alabama. Instead he might have been holding a rainbow colored "Welcome" sign. When African American Terrence Graves beat out our forefather's ideal American Travis Spicer for the starting spot, the more conservative members of Alabama's fanbase were outraged. The emotionally unstable Spicer did not care as over the years he has developed a love of academics, but pressure from his parents to make the NFL has forced him to stay on the football team.
Regardless coach Namath vowed to use a two QB system and thus far it has led Alabama to a 7-0 record and a #1 ranking. Avoiding the Wright / Zelmon conflict over at Riverdale Palm Trees, Spicer and Graves have developed a mutual respect for each other. Namath usually starts Graves, while Spicer spends the 1st quarter working on his paper "The Banana Effect: Why the Asian Girl wants to be white." Spicer comes in when the opposing team's SPY is working effectively and when a long bomb is needed. They don't even go after the same women anymore: Graves likes hispanic girls, while Spicer likes Asians, both rare commodities at the University of Alabama. Before they always competed for the affection of the white sorority girls who were turned down by then starting QB Chad Arnold. However they both had WS 205 Women's Autobiographies on their class schedule and they were forced to read Smashed by Koren Zailckas which made them feel bad about taking advantage of girls who funneled beer on a daily basis. Woooooooooooooo, SPRING BREAK 2000!
Here are the top offensive stats from the last two games (the defensive story to come later, hint: not as much harmony):
Alabama 35, Ole Miss 14 - Tuscaloosa
Graves 9-13 98 yards, 60 yards rushing 1 TD
Spicer 6-9 61 yards, 1 TD
Ferguson 123 yards 1 TD
Sanchez 53 yards 2 TDs
Alabama 28, Tennessee 14 - Knoxville
Graves 4-9 70 yards, 29 yards rusing
Spicer 7-12 95 yards 1 TD, 1 RUSHING TD!
Ferguson 84 yards
FB Coles 2 TDs
Spicer taking advice from Graves to rush the ball if no one is open, Racial Harmony at its finest! Ebony and Ivory!
