Since beating UGA in Athens in 08, there have been 75 AP polls released.
UA has been in the top 5 65 times
UA has been in the top 4 63 times
UA has been in the top 3 60 times
UA has been in the top 2 49 times
UA has been #1 25 times
In the top two (i.e. effectively in BCS driver's seat) 49 of 75 weeks? That's insane.
And yet there are still some who question CNS on recruits and other decisions.
That stat about being in the top 2 is amazing.
It's also crazy that we've been #1 in one-third of all polls since the middle of 2008. Over almost 5 full seasons, we've been the highest ranked team in the country 33 percent of the time. The other 120+ schools have held the top spot the other 66 percent.
This is a special time for Bama and the fans!
technically, we've controlled our own destiny for another 8 weeks. cause when we were 3rd, at least 1 of the top 2 were teams we were going to play. (5 times in 09, 3 in 11) (we were 3rd 4 times in 11, but one was after we had played lsu)
Impressive stat. These are great times.
Coach Saban is the man....Thanks to Ms Terry for letting us borrow him for a while...LOL
Just needs to be bumped! Let it soak in. Coach Saban has me in total amazement! You might say "this guy has issues" and I probably do but I've seen us hit the bottom during probation .I've been a Bama fan my whole life. The Bryant years were amazing. As a child I always expected Bama to win. The Bear had the Bama nation spoiled. After his passing I remember the Bill Curry and Ray Perkins careers that were pretty good but filling Bryants shoes were impossible. When Stallings was hired he brought back the relentless defense we were accustomed to. He also brought with him one of the biggest Bama fans ever known in John Mark Stallings. He melted the hearts of the Bama nation and brought so much love and joy everywhere he went.Truly a blessing from God. After Stallings departure we embarked on the Dubose days that had a moment or two but ended in embarrassment. Shula was hired and it was just bad times for the Bama nation. While I appreciated the job Mike did it was bad times. When Coach Saban was hired I can honestly say I breathed a sigh of relief. I had no idea he would be this successful but I new he would win. Coach Saban has turned the college football world upside down. He is building a dynasty like no other! Enjoy these times Bama Nation!!
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
So if we are essentially a lock for the top five and Top four as well, can we just go ahead and reserve a seat for the impending four team playoff every year?
Never Gets Old
I think it's a safe bet!
