and that is why losing the national championship to a team that shouldn't have been there in the first place hurts so damn much. You are supposed to close out that great season, like pinning a great jewel on on the crown to signify you are king! Alabama had been beat, a tough game for them, but they lost fair and square. We should have played another conference champ like Oklahama St. to further the conquest of beating great teams and close out the season with the the greatest college football season ever!!
Guy on finebaum's show disagrees. Said Saban keeps close lipped about injuries. Guy was with the press.
