Tuscaloosa Krystal field

The field for today’s Krystal qualifier at the University of Alabama has been posted. Ranked eaters in that list are:
Joey Chestnut
Tim Brown
Juris Shibayama
Loren Yarbrough
Marco Marquez
Super Paul Barlow

The page describes the wild card scenarios:

Shibayama’s one Krystal advantage gives him the tie-breaker should he and Brown tie for a Wildcard Spot. To earn a Wildcard, Shibayama must finish with 41 or more Krystals, or he must eat 40 Krystals and Brown finish with 40 or less. To claim a Wildcard, Brown must finish with 41 or more Krystals, or 40 Krystals and finish ahead of Shibayama.

Full results from the Jackson, MS qualifier have yet to be posted.

    No way was I driving to tuscaloosa Alabama to get my butt kicked. I prefer to get my butt kicked right around my own house.

    It was a lot of fun. I wish they had all the qualifiers on college campuses. Sports Illustrated had a cool tent with the real Heisman Trophy (they let you take a picture with it), Ken Stabler showed up later, all kinds of give-a-ways of swag at several sponsor tents, there were millions of beautiful southern belles around, we had a great crowd…….waiting and waiting for Joey, parties everywhere ( If Juris, Joey, and I could have stuck around, we were immediately invited to a tailgate party ), the weather wasn’t as hot as it had been for all the other qualifiers. I came home with “junk” for everyone in my family

    Most Cryptic part: I kept yelling to the crowd that Alabama would score two points for every Krystal I ate, so they better root for me – I ate 21, they scored 41…….spooky

    Wish I would have used that prediction for Florida State…we stink

    Bubba now i dont feel so bad. I was going to drive 17hrs to get a public lynching . I would have gladly accepted a butt kicking over what they had planned for me. I thought it over and finally came to my senses. I made a vow i will be at the first qualifier next year and thats for the record!
