E-mails Sent to the University of Alabama English Department Flag-Football Team

The University of Alabama English Department Football League (UAEDFL) was founded in 2007 and has since established a weekly event involving cleats, tear-away flags, and a highly elaborate rule book. Before each contest, Brian Oliu, the league’s commissioner, sends an e-mail to the English Department Listserv to rally these poet-athletes. From time to time, we’ll be sharing these missives with you.
