Sweet little southern girl. Former cheerleader. Rabid football fan. Roll Tide!!!
Jealousy is an ugly thing.... Roll Tide!
Agreed. High schools use a playoff system (supposed to be better, right), and teams often end up playing each other twice. You may have to beat an opponent twice to become State Champs. If you're truly the better team, you can do it. No one whines about it. They play the game. Even if you "lost" to a team in the regular season, you can beat them in the playoffs and still become State Champs. LSU is in no way entitled to the National Championship title for 2011. They never even crossed the 50-yard-line. Alabama was quite decisively the best team.
Please learn the difference in "loss" and "lost." I couldn't even focus on your argument for the distraction of your numerous incorrect uses of the word "loss."
Awww, "Non-story," say the Auburn and Georgia fans.
Okay, but compare Sims first year as QB to McCarron's first year as QB: Blake wins! And I'd take Sims' attitude over McCarron's any day. Roll Tide, y'all!!!
I'm a huge Bama fan, and as much as I'd like to be able to say, "I think Bama will run away with this one," you have to remember, this IS the Iron Bowl. What you've seen from these teams the rest of the year isn't really an indicator (okay, not counting last year) of what you can expect on the field in this game. This is a blood-and-guts, leave it all on the field kind of game for the players and the coaches. Both teams will come prepared. I think we're going to see a very physical game with some awesome hits and "Did-that-really-just-happen?" kind of plays. It's going to be exciting, but I predict the Tide will win it in the end, probably in the 4th quarter.
Certainly not Johnny "look at me" football.
Well of course he should win it. No one deserves it more.
I'm a Bama fan from birth, and I have to agree with you 100% here. The Iron Bowl is always a game that you just can't predict. It is not subject to the typical "laws of football." There is so much emotion, pride, and tradition flowing through each of the players and the fans. The atmosphere is like nothing you will ever experience in your life. It is absolutely a game that cannot be predicted by statistics and logic. With all that in mind, this should be a good one!
This made me laugh! :)
Interesting rumor, but something about it doesn't seem right. Saban is extremely successful at the college level, but his style didn't bring the same results in the NFL. I've also read that he didn't like the dynamics of coaching NFL players. Sixty million would be a big enticement, but I have a feeling there's not much truth to this one.
Keep in mind, Alabama's percentage would be higher if they didn't have so many players leave college for the NFL.
Sour grapes, anyone?
And the Tide keeps rolling. ;)
