You act like Bama barely squeaked out a win in the NC that year. We lost by three touchdowns, scored zero points, and never crossed the 50. Bama was just BETTER that year - even teams don't get curb stomped that badly when it matters.
I mean we did beat them AT THEIR PLACE in a game that was "the game of the century for all the marbles!!!11!1!!"
We played awful on offense on 1/9. No excuses for that game. However I still dont believe that Bama was far and away better that year because I can point to a similar pressured game where they had the home field advantage and lost.
IMO it was a huge psychological blow for the team to have the whole season build up to one winner take all game hyped in all reality more than the NC game (the NBA was in lockout and there was a ticker on ESPN for two weeks) , they go out there lay it all on the line and then 3 weeks later they get told-it doesnt matter do it again.
Anyways. Football is as good as its ever been. NC contender year in year out.
Baseball Maineiri has won some regular season games but failed in the post season. Unfortunately for him college baseball and college basketball are sports (unlike CFB) where the regular season means crap if you cant win in their respective tournaments.
