My (Humorous) Take

                Alabama dominated Notre Dame 42-14 in the BCS National Championship game.

Well, watching the championship game makes me feel better about our team last year. We played just as good as the current No. 1 team in the country.

I guess if we weren’t in the SEC we could have easily been in the running for another national championship. While I loath the Tide, I can’t help but laugh at the rest of the country for always doubting the South.

    They were exposed as pretenders.

    Oregon is the team that should have been there. The outcome might have not been any different but the Ducks would have made a game of it.

    • AuburnMisfit AuburnMisfit says:

      And some could make the argument that this game proves that a playoff is needed. I’m not trying to discredit the Ducks. But the best teams prove themselves week in and week out.

      Anyways, 7 in a row for the SEC and 4 in a row for the state of Alabama says a lot.

    Ha, I thought this would go the side bar conversations. Whoo-hoo me!

    Agreed! ND did not play the strength of schedule to warrant a #1 ranking. They have been the media darlings to the point that once again we heard “College Football is better/more popular when ND is at the top”. To that I say CRAP. And that is exactly what ND did last night…..CRAP!

    Well who didn’t see that coming? As much as I dislike everything about Alabama, I do have to give Saban all the credit in the world for dismantling Notre Dame and proving that he is the best coach in college football….or at least the best coach when he has the best talent. You have to admit the guy doesn’t miss when he gets the chance. The guy is certifiable and is probably a horrible guy to work for and with, but he is THE guy you want to coach your football team. All he cares about is beating his opponent, I don’t even think winning does it for him…..he has to DEFEAT you. And he does it better than anybody. How TAMU won in West Vance I don’t know.
    I do think the only folks who could beat the Sabans, (that team is about as much about Bama, as Auburn….that team is Saban’s… nobody elses) would be Oregon and Texas A&M. Nobody has a chance to go toe-to-toe with those roided out freaks in Crimson, (and yes, those young men HAVE to be juicing) the only way to beat them is to try to confuse them with misdirection and execute, execute, execute…..and hope the clock runs out before they catch up to you. My hats off to you little Nicky, everybody is just playing for best loser while you’re around.

      When your right Colonel, your right.

      I think Saban is good coach with an unfettered multi pronged media propaganda machine behind him. Very tough combo to beat.

      Vanderbilt would have beat Notre Dame. Not a shot at either, just fact.

        “unfettered multi pronged media propaganda machine behind him” and “Vanderbilt would have beat Notre Dame” = Facts?

    Good as UAT was last night I bet UGA, TAMU, and Florida (despite their not showing up to the Louisville game) would all have seen similar results. In fact I still believe at this moment TAMU is the best team in college football, if they hadn’t dropped a game to LSU or UF early in the season they would have been in the championship game. But as always the benefit of the doubt goes to the crimson turds I suppose. Let’s be the team that knocks of the evil empire from it’s throne! War Eagle!

    You know, I bet even South Carolina, LSU and Ole Miss would have won as well.

    This could not have happened to a worse fan base…..blegh

  7. War Eagle Girl War Eagle Girl says:

    My question will be ~ when are they going to get caught? How can they be so much larger than ANYONE they play? They includes the rest of the SEC. No one is comparable. Guess not until Nicki’s friend is not president.

    I think Gus is just as determined to win but I just hope not all costs……

    Let’s take a second to look at this:

    1) Tuberville was hired to repair the mess left over from Pat Dye and (notso) lil Terry Bowden.

    He did his job and built a program that was a tad better than average. Personally, I think he could have done much more than he did. But he DID alot. No doubt about it.

    2) Chizik was hired to repair the mess that Tuberville did after the 2006 season on until he was released.

    He too did his job. He got us back in the game so to speak with recruiting. And we DID win a national title in 2010.

    Now, bring in Gus Malzahn.

    Yes, 2012 was a terrible year. But we got talent on the bench. Coaching them up was what lacked from Chizik in 2011 and 2012.

    Personally, I think Malzahn staff has the capability to do what Chizik’s staff couldn’t…. create a dynasty. I am just saying it’s possible. We have far better coaches than we ever did under Chizik.

    I wasn’t an advocate of Malzahn’s hiring. But since he was hired… I can see the logic in it. And his subsequent hiring of a staff has been damn near flawless.

    The man knows where he wants to go. Question still remains… can he get us there?

    I don’t understand where all this alleged PED use is coming from. High school recruits are rated on their size/speed combinations and football skills. Bammers have produced a top 3 class 5 years in a row. So, why is it a surprise that their players show up on game day faster and stronger? When you look at comparable schools that have had similar top recruiting classes (LSU, UGA), they have just as much talent as the bammers. Look at Mingo-Montgomery in baton rouge or the freak that is Jarvis Jones. Bammers don’t have anyone on that side of the ball that is at the same level as Jones or Clowney. Don’t get me wrong, I hate seeing UAT snatching up crystal every year, but don’t take that route. Don’t just throw blind accusations of steroids around like you know anything. It makes us look like jealous, irrational idiots. Their program is the model in college football right now. Other schools are looking at them and copying their methodology. There’s not even a puff of smoke coming out of Luscatoosa that would indicate any malfeasance. Not to mention that we ourselves are under scrutiny. So let’s not point out the saw dust in our neighbor’s eye before removing the plank from our own.
