Iron Bowl Politics
Using a search engine for federal campaign contributions, I wanted to see if either Mike Shula or Tommy Tuberville was politically active. Neither coach has given to a federal (President or Congress) race, but each has a member of their immediate family who has.
Tommy Tuberville's wife Suzanne is listed as a contributor to the Bush/Cheney reelection fund ($2,000) as well as a May contribution to GOP US Rep Mike Rogers ($500).
On the Shula side, patriarch Don Shula spreads his contributions between both parties. While donating money directly to Republican campaign committees, Shula has also given to Florida Democrats like Bill Nelson, and Bob Graham. Other members of the Shula family have followed the same pattern.
But just in case you want to keep the politics to a minimum on this Iron Bowl weekend, here's my prediction.
Auburn 23 - Alabama 14
