All the people on this board complaining and whining about our team and our coaches need to grow up! Yes we lost but damn just a few short years ago we were hoping to beat the LSU's and even AU's of the world. Now we lose a game and our base just whines and throws in the towel and criticizes all our coaches and team, it's just classless. Sure I'm as disappointed as any but damn guys, how quickly we forget. RTR!
+1 for you sir.
+1 Amen brother. I'm extremely proud of this team. Down 20-0. We ain't the barn. The boys didn't quit. Just didn't make enough plays. Thought the refs didn't bring their A game either.
Back in the day, I ran a 3.9 in the 20
No kidding. People need to remember how we struggled as a program before Saban got here. I remember hoping to win sec games and hoping for bowl games. We've come a long way, but no matter how good you are, you can't win every game. Enjoy the ride we're on, cause it won't last forever. Roll tide!!
I would have rather got blown out by 3 td's then to lose it like that. Sucks!
Ahh yes, the exact attitude Saban would despise.
Don't be content with improvement over the last 5 years. NEVER be content with anything.
If you're content with losing, so be it. But don't expect a high five.
I respect your opinion and you make good points. But to say it's classless is wrong. Our coach preaches playing to a standard, playing 60 minutes, and even sometimes tries to tell our fans how to act. The last two weeks he has not performed to the standard that has been set. He's the greatest coach in America and it's not even close. He's the best program builder perhaps in the history of college football. I hope he coaches 20 more years for us. BUT, his performance (by allowing Nuss to turn us into a PAC-12 team) is so extremely frustrating and puzzling. I think he would criticize himself as well. Part of what makes Alabama great is the support from its fans. It's the best in college football and also what helps attract great coaches and players. If we want to speak out, we can. It goes both ways.
"You feeling satisfied now Teddy?"
Pretty solid season if we can win out and get n a bcs. Not bad back to back years.
Now ^^^^ This ^^^^^^ is how a real fan supports their team. RTR. Our boys played hard they did not quit and came damn close to pulling it out again. I love this team they are winners and champions. Lets regroup and win out who knows we may find ourselves back in the hunt. RTR
I agree with the OP. I was paged to the hospital emergently when we were down 14-0 and came home with better perspective. I was sorely disappointed but had a blast watching such an exciting game. Best game I've watched all season other than the end. We battled for 4 quarters and just came up short. Was very proud of EL and Coop and our D putting us in a position to win at the end. Very proud of how Fulton responsed to being targeted on every pass play. I wish we would have run the ball more, but we didn't. Not sure if I want to fire anybody over it. That is a little drastic. This game is supposed to be enjoyed and I love the swing in emotions it brings. But at the end of the day it is just a game and these 18-22 yr old kids are doing the best they can. We will bounce back from this. RTR!
You see where Baseball America rated our recruiting class in the top 6 nationally?
Blew my mind. The draft has been fairly kind to us under Gaspard shockingly enough.
You have no idea what it means to have class or be a champion. Thankfully our coach does.
