Bo Jackson is an Auburn man, as he should be. Some things in this state — school allegiances, for instance — need neither explanation nor defense.

But Jackson also is an Alabama man — an Alabamian who loves his native state so much that it hurts.

Jackson’s “Bo Bikes Bama” campaign ended Saturday having raised nearly $450,000 for tornado relief for the April 27 storms. Fittingly, it ended not in Jackson’s Auburn but in Tuscaloosa, where more than 50 people died in the 2011 storms.

Countless stories of goodwill and assistance have poured in during the tornadoes’ anniversary. Jackson reminded us that at times like this, the Tide and Tigers are all members of the same family.
