Thanks everyone. Comments , some of them at least, were better than the article.
GO DAWGS (this weekend- not 9/19/20.)
BengalBeaux, nothing more pathetic than a hater. Zero class. We always want Bama to win, but that level of snivelry and slime is kind a low, dont ya think? Its a sport- focus on your team winning. Not hating a winner because they're a winner. That's a loser mentality.
Dropping Bama that far has absolutely NOTHING to do with football.
Yep! 10-2, though a “down” year for us, is still a good year. My freshman year we were 0-3 out of the gate. Sorry to disappoint, wickedgrin. Are there any other teams that have to go back to 2010 for a multiple loss regular season? I’m still proud of Bama.
I am a die hard BAMA fan, ever since my freshman year there- BUT I am really hoping to see Burrow break both of those records tonight. What an accomplishment! Roll Tide, and GO SEC. THE SCRIBE: You are correct. I would love to see FLA destroy Baylor.
Brainesman- great idea.
Agreed! UGA v ND was the best. Better than any movie that came out this year.
So this passes as a sports article? Sounds like a school yard roast. Also- ANYTIME you start to talk about it "being time" for another team to be at the top, you have left the arena of competition and are now just a sore loser. Don't want BAMA at the top? Simple- beat them consistently and often for several years.
At that point, I would laugh so hard and so much I would not care who won.
Respectfully, that is the problem, Gatormike20. The POINT of the playoff is the four best teams- not the four teams people are the least tired of hearing about. It is a competition, not a popularity contest. If BAMA is one of the top 4, they should be in; if not, no worries. See ya next year. If you sit out one of the 4 top because of the name of the team, you cheapen the victory of the ultimate winner. Eight years from now it may be a different team people are tired of (though I doubt it.)
Ok- I like the article and what it says- but you have me crying I am laughing so hard. Thanks.
Looking forward to a great game. I think this will be the game of the day to watch. Good luck to both and stay healthy!
NFL Draft analyst claims Tua Tagovailoa has indicated he is ‘very likely to enter’ the 2020 NFL Draft
Wish him the very best. I'll cheer for him wherever he goes. I would love to see him back in Tuscaloosa for a year- but NOT if it means he has to sacrifice his career or any part of it.
You're right Geaux Long- people loving the players they cheer for on Saturdays is down right weird. I mean, c'mon, actually liking the person and appreciating how they live outside of the stadium is so unheard of. We are far better off to follow your example and launch personal attacks against people we dont know- Tebow, Saban etc. because we hate how repeatedly they gave us the big fat "L" during the season. DUDE- ITS A GAME. Try to enjoy it. I do. RTR.
Handicapper Danny Sheridan discusses impact of Tua Tagovailoa’s injury on Alabama’s CFP chances, Iron Bowl betting line
You’re spoiled rotten if you think a one loss season is “headed down.”
Grover- what in the world do you mean by the "fighting hitlers?" I am lost...
Could not agree more, Bamarulz17 (except the part about the SDS being putrid. I kind of like it.) I am also tired of hearing "dynasty is over" when the team averages a loss every season and a half and rarely during the regular season. After three or more seasons of 3 losses I'd be happy to entertain dead-dynasty talk. Fact is, Bama's record is uniquely special, hence the fatigue. Still football to play.
Frozenhawg- when you cant tell the difference between cheering for/against a team playing a game and actually hating people, it is a sign this SPORT might not be good for you. Take a break. Read a book.
Jomo- that was funny. Thanks for the laugh.
Great game Tua! Great game LSU and Bama! It was a worthy first round National Championship!
Legitimate question here: what do you do with the #1 and #2 having a slug fest and one team squeaks by the other? Does the losing team not make the playoffs even though it’s a “quality” loss?
Hoping for a great game from both. I personally love the fact the world of football has to tune in to the SEC game of the week for the real national championship. While I want Bama to win, I’m impressed with LSU and hope they come in as a really strong second on the 9th.
It’s comments like yours brc that bring me back here
* One Bama RB tackled for a loss of 2 yards* ESPN/ Haters/ UGA fans/ Sports world: "ITS THE END OF THE BAMA DYNASTY!" Yawn. A loss to LSU would be just that- a loss to a great team having a great year. One game out of many and by no means the harbinger of the long-awaited end of the dynasty. One day, one year maybe. Not anytime soon.
LSU has a lot to be proud of this year. It seems they are improving in every area. And while I will be pulling for the other side on the 9th, I do think LSU has a great shot at the title this year. I enjoy seeing the SEC dominate. Wasn't it just last year everyone said the SEC was done? Ha!
