LA Gov. jealous of our state

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is jealous of the state of Alabama. And with good reason—the state’s universities are leading the way in research, and major corporations pick Alabama over that corrupt swamp known as Louisiana.

In his speech to a special session of the Louisiana legislature, Jindal said this about our state:

Currently, the University of Alabama at Birmingham receives more federal research funding than all of Louisiana’s public universities combined.

That must change. Alabama cannot beat us in football; they cannot beat us in research.

Big talk from the most corrupt state in the nation. Big talk considering Alabama’s football teams (including UAB and Auburn) all have beaten LSU like a drum. Historically, UA holds a 43-22-5 record against LSU; AU trails LSU by a small margin 19-21-1. On Sept. 23, 2000, UAB beat LSU.

Looking at the records, Alabama (all our state teams) beat LSU on a regular basis—on the field and in the classroom and in research dollars.
