They hate was unreal in the 70's, as the only year we did not win the SEC was 1976. What most people outside the Bama nation don't realize is the Tide played the Top 5, ie Southern Cal, Nebraska, ND during the regular season to represent Southern football. Living close to Athens GA now, the UGA fans think they are equal to ALA in tradition, etc. Hell they still talk about the 1976 game when they upset us. ( The one thing I will never understand is how UGA has escaped playing ALA for so many years) Auburn back in those days was a tune up for our Championships. The hate was thick back in those days and the Bear would have won more National Championships with the BCS system, because the media who voted for National Champions hated the small market South. I guess we can all stand our Hated Post again, RTR

My dad and uncles used to tell me how bad it was back in the days of The Bear. Glad I now get to experience it for myself
The Roman poet Lucius Accius said it best: "Oderint dum metuant" (let them hate, so long as they fear).
I remember when I envied programs like Nebraska & Oklahoma in the 90's, Steve Spurrier's UF Teams, USCw under Carroll, LSU under Saban. During my lifetime in baseball the Yankees have always been the evil empire, but they (for the most part) produced on the field...as did the Braves teams of the 90's. In NASCAR it was Earnhardt Sr., then Jimmy Johnson. Golf has had Tiger & Phil to a lessor extent.
I'm loving every minute of our time at the Round Table of Excellence...it likely won't last very long, so savor every minute!
