The rout is on!
The rout is on!
Just win Phin baby!
Congrats. I'm not a fan of the coach as a person, and I'm indifferent toward the program, but the style of play is a joy to watch. In fact, it's by far the saving characteristic on any level of football right now. Imagine if Saban were in the NFL and a tinkerbell program like Oregon were playing for titles? That would be unbearable, in conjunction with what the NFL has turned into.
You have to credit Alabama's success with meaner looking numerals on the helmets, and a more aggressive elephant.
I still hate the idea of losing at home and making the title game.
Funny because so many clowns think Oregon could play with Bama. They lost at home this year and failed to win their conference as well.
I told everyone who would listen that Bama was going to steam roll ND. I think they proved last night that they are the best team in the land. Really, there are only a handful of teams even close.
Alabama the past two years got away with a late season home defeat, after other teams collapsed subsequently. Some home and some road. I never doubted Alabama's caliber but I'm disgusted at both the polls and BCS formula for the low level of penalization of a home defeat as opposed to a road loss.
This is a great Alabama run but you can't get too carried away in all time terms, considering two consecutive seasons with a home loss. Anybody who doesn't recognize that is in comical denial. History manages to recognize something like that, absent of empty phrases.
You make a good point regarding Bama looking NFLish... the size comes from our mashed 'taters, cornbread, and sweet tea.... the speed from chasing our female cousins around...
