note: Dale sent this note in last night, but I was away from my laptop. Posting it this morning as it reflects the feelings of so many.

To all of my University of Alabama friends.

I have spent a lot of time in Tuscaloosa over the years and the sights and reports I am hearing regarding the tornado in Tuscaloosa are tragic.

I am calling on sports fans, no matter if you are a Vol, a Tiger, a Gator, a Gamecock, or a Blazer to come together and do whatever we can do to help out our friends in T-Town.

May God have mercy and may the loss of life be minimal.

Dale Jones
