The floor is open for debate.....Ready, Set, Go!
Absolutely! Because it's the next game! Roll Tide!
No and there is no debate, ask the players, its just another game to them
For today, yes. In history, no. Alabama has been in too many big games over the years to say this is the most important. If you look back on history, the '92 NCG was far larger. It put and end to one of the greatest runs in CFB history, and brought 'Bama back to prominence after a 13 year run of mediocrity. It made The U of A relevant again, even though for a short period. It can be argued it could be because of the Notre Dame dominance/luck that the Irish has had, but overall, they are just one team that has had some luck against our beloved Tide. I can't think of a team I would rather beat more right now though, other than aTm.

Tonight it is, because it is the next one and against Notre Dame. We owe them o good whipping....
We have won 2 out of 3 of the last Nattys, ( with special thanks to Okie lite,Stanford and Baylor) The way I look at it we are playing with "house money". Not near the importance of the 1992 win or even the 2009 win in regards to our legacy. Having said that ,a win tonight confirms all the dynasty talk.
I say no.
i say yes. i've been following bama football since the late 60's. our record against this team is 1-5. coach bryant's record against these guys is 0-4. this team is responsble for us losing titles in 1966, 1973 (half), 1974, and 1977. the worst defeat i have ever sit through was the 1973 sugar bowl. i hate these bastards and want us to just win. a win equals a national championship against one of the biggest "names" in college football history. i will forever be grateful to coach saban if he can bring home the win.

1. 1926 Rose Bowl-- Hands Down -- If you disagree that's fine, but the reasoning needs to be sound
2. 1962 Sugar Bowl -- Set the tone for the Bryant years and what is now the standard of all college football coaches and universities
3. 2009 SEC Championship vs UF -- Set the tone for Saban's dominance
4. Today's game -- This game gives us a measure of revenge against ND and truly puts Coach Saban on stage with the best ever
I could go on, but that is how I see it.
Edit: I may be willing to switch 3-4 after I see how tonight's game plays out, but until it is played I'm just speculating like the rest y'all.
