A coach leaving won't impact the program but a fiscal implosion might.

Alabama is probably not one of the safest bets for investors, according to a new report from Forbes. The state landed on Forbes' list of "death spiral states," which is a list of potential danger spots for municipal bond investors, homebuyers or other individuals. The list of 11 states was based on two factors. The first was a ratio of takers (government employees, recipients of government pension and individuals on welfare) compared to makers (individuals employed by private enterprise). Alabama had a ratio of 1.1 takers for every maker. Forbes said ratios higher than 1 represent the danger zone. The other criteria was each state's creditworthiness based on an analysis by Conning & Co. Alabama landed in the bottom half of that ranking.

How's Nick going to make payroll?

I love how govt employees and retired govt employees are categorized as takers. I get it, they are receiving money from the govt....but I wouldn't exactly characterize them as takers.

Work for the EPA = taker
School teacher = taker
Water department = taker
Police officer = taker
Fish and wildlife service = taker

Work for a bank??? .....congrats you're a maker!!!

Anyway you get my point.

The Eagles?...that's a step down from Bama!!!

No one is doubting the need or value of the aforementioned civil servants, but their salaries and benefits are derived from tax revenues. Hence the term "takers". Bankers, engineers, retail clerks etc salary and benefits are derived from company profits, i.e. "makers". This concludes todays lesson in Econ 101.

Not sure you'll see this, but that won't affect Alabama football. Now, for some that may be a detractor that Alabama football keeps trukking while the state might flounder. But, that something is still successful is a good thing.

My apologies to you and PDX for hitting the enter key on that comment. It wasn't appropriate and it was just mean-spirited.

That wasn't lost on me DS hence why I said "I get it" in the post before. I didn't like the terminology.
