re: Alabama 2008-2012 - How impressive would this run be?


No, it's hypocritical BS because Alabama is literally the only school in America that gets fricked with for claiming the same kinds of titles under the same circumstances that MANY other schools claim (1941 excluded). Now you're going as far as suggesting that we're delusional for claiming years in which we were awarded AP titles. So apparently AP titles aren't even legitimate any more. What next? Should we give back the 2009 title because Colt McCoy got hurt in the title game?

Notre Dame beat #1 Texas handily. Alabama beat Top 5 Ohio State 35-6. Other than the 3 common opponents it looks like a tie to me with Alabama with the better record against common opponents


ND was the BEST team in 1977. I don't care what you say.

Oh and Notre Dame lost to Ole Miss by 7, that's hardly getting housed :



The same Ole Miss team that lost to Alabama by 21 points the week before.

Doesn't matter that Notre Dame lost to a common opponent that Alabama beat by 21 points that season. Although it apparently DOES matter that Notre Dame beat USC worse than Alabama did that year.

Pretty good except for the 4th place finish in the division in 2010 and not winning the division in 2011. Need a few more years of winning everything.
