Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is jealous of the state of Alabama. And with good reasonâ€”the stateâ€™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.
â€¨â€¨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 Alabamaâ€™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 basisâ€”on the field and in the classroom and in research dollars.
