> The "(through our) ass" does seem like overkill

Not at all. "Our ass" means "us." Your ass don't understand shit, look
like. ;-) A different coach in a different era might have said, "They ran
through us as though we weren't even there!"

The Crimson Tide's ballers make up the largest aggregation of boyz from the
'hood outside of Alabama's state-prison system. Saban hears their speech
eight months out of the year.. As George Carlin pointed out, dekkids ago,
BE is catching.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
