Opposing Views: Should "Dixieland Delight" be played in Bryant-Denny?

Tonight, the University of Alabama Student Government Association Senate will hold a meeting to debate whether they should support the song “Dixieland Delight” playing in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Upon hearing about the event, Jeff Rogers wrote to our page in opposition of the song’s playing. SGA Senator Patrick Fitzgerald, accepted our invitation to respond.

To that end, The Crimson White is proud to present the opposing views of these two students, specifically focusing on whether or not the UA Athletics Department should play “Dixieland Delight” at home football games. I encourage you to research further into this debate with both views in mind.
