Serious Question....do you still enjoy the wins as much as Saban's second or third year?? I gotta admit--at the level we are at, there's a lot of times (LSU, SECCG) where I feel like we have the better team and are supposed to win, so I'm as much relieved as overjoyed...
Don't get me wrong: I dont wanna change it, I'm perfectly happy to not lose for 5 straight years, but keeping it real, as an example, there was a greater excitement to beating Tebow in the 09 Champiotnship game than beating UGA last year...curious how others feel?
I enjoy all wins
Happier NOW with wins than ever before. If not, something's wrong and you really need to think about this football fan "thing". I LOVE blowouts, because it means we are dominating, as we should. I would love EVERY GAME to be a one-sided blowout in our favor---every one. I can promise I'd never be bored, lol.

What are you smoking? I've got as good that grows, and your post makes no sense. Do you not remember the Darby up the middle days? Do you know how much crap I took living in Florida from age 10 to early 20's? When I lived in Gainesville, UF had meyer, we had Shula.
So no, I haven't gotten bored yet.

People here aren't being honest with themselves.. nobody's saying they don't enjoy the wins, obviously this is an unheard of, incredible run we're on and everyone is enjoying the ride. But be real: you don't get the same sheer unrelenting elation when you win now as you did after we beat LSU in OT in '08, or after we beat Tebow. I could have walked on the clouds after those games. Now, like you said, due to the consistent winning and expectations, it's almost more of relief to win than pure joy. I know where you're coming from OP

What I'm enjoying is Saban and th Bama players are creating an unprecedented era in college football...and I can't wait to see where it leads us...Bama has a good possibility of going this year where no other team has ever been...and even if it is not this year....4 of 6 or 4 of 7 is still unreal....I personality believe we will see an unbelievable next ten years...and again..it will be where none have ever been before....thats why I will stay excited with every win.
absolutely. I love all our wins. I will admit it, I prefer it does not go down to the wire, because I get really nervous.
I understand where the OP is coming from also. I love winning as much as the next fan, but I can see where he gets the question from and I believe if we are all honest with ourselves that the days during Dubose and Shula you weren't real sure how things would turn out. Now like some others have stated we go in expecting to win every game no matter who we are playing. But I do really love the feelings with Coach Saban being in charge a whole lot better than the others though..Roll Tide
Ever since the loss to La- Monroe I've never taken a win for granted...love them all. Losses do hurt worse.
