HONOLULU – Bud Cauley and Jason Bohn, former University of Alabama golfers, were in a restaurant at their hotel in Honolulu on Monday to watch their Crimson Tide play LSU in the BCS championship game.
Yes, they could be heard -- loud and clear -- as Alabama won 21-0.
"I think everyone knew we were Alabama fans," said Cauley, a PGA TOUR rookie this year.
Was anybody else cheering for the Tide?
"No," Cauley replied, then added, "We converted a couple people by the end of the game."
Bohn played at Alabama in the early 1990s, but Cauley was at the school last year before turning pro in the summer and making enough money in eight starts to earn his PGA TOUR card. He was a student three years ago when Alabama previous won the national title, but was in Australia at the time and did not attend the game.
"I have a knack for being far away when they play these games," Cauley said. "Maybe that's a good thing. If we get in the (BCS title) game another time, I might go to India or something, just get as far away as I can.
"I think I might be bad luck."
