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


assuming they win it all this year

2008: 12-2, SEC runner up and lost in a BCS bowl

2009: 14-0, SEC/National title

2010: 10-3

2011: 12-1, National title

2012: 14-0 SEC/National title (hypothetical)

6 losses in 5 years. 3 national titles.

that has to be one of the more impressive runs, at least in the modern era

As douchey as little Nicky is, he's an amazing college coach, and given the resources of Alabama, has dominated the NCAA.

Even if they don't win this year (which I don't think they will), they'll be the favorite for 2013.

So it could be 7 losses in 7 years and 3 national titles.

Don't forget about Nebraska 1993-1997.

1993: 11-1, 2 point loss in the national title game

1994: 13-0, national title

1995: 12-0, national title, goat team

1996: 11-2, Orange Bowl win

1997: 13-0, national title

60-3 over 5 years.

Saban is a world-class dick but a great coach. Add that to the resources and recruiting base bama has, it would be an epic fail if they weren't dominant.

I don't now...More impressive if they didn't lose to Utah in their 2008 BCS bowl; Texas didn't lose their QB in the 2009 title game and if they went undefeated w/o a second-chance last year.

There's always something with Bama that feels like they get the breaks in winning NTs while some teams have dominated in the past and didn't win the title.

Boo fricking hoo. Can people stop bitching about this? I'm no fan of Bama, but this is the lamest excuse ever. LSU lost its starting QB, RB, LT, TE, and CB against Bama and you don't hear us trying to say Bama's win was illegitimate somehow.

Saban is a jackass, but he's a jackass who can coach.

It's not their fault that Colt McCoy quit.
