An Alabama fan paid a lot of money to see his Tide play in the SEC title game. Instead, he bought Missouri gear and cheered for Mizzou.
College Football AP Poll - Week 16
I know Saturday hurt. In fact, I know it still hurts but just like in 2011 and 2012, there is hope. With just a few upsets and a little luck, Alabama could find themselves right back in the BCS mix. Sure, we need nothing less than a small miracle to make it happen but the dream is plausible.
Scenario #1 - Ohio State or Florida State lose; Auburn and Mizzou play an awful game in Atlanta; Mizzou wins.
Both teams look terrible and Mizzou pulls out the ugly win. Voters remember how Alabama outplayed Auburn, besides on the final play. The human polls (which make up 2/3’s of the BCS) place Bama #2, which is enough to make-up for the one loss in the computer rankings.
Scenario #2 - Ohio St and FSU lose; Mizzou beats Auburn
In this particular dream scenario, to avoid a rematch of Auburn and Mizzou, the northern Tigers would have to soundly defeat Auburn in Atlanta. We can’t have voters still believe that Auburn is the 2nd best team in the country, even if they had previously bested Alabama.
Scenario #3 - Ohio St and FSU lose; Auburn defeats Mizzou
This would be the undoing of the college football world. Literally, the BCS and the state of Alabama would spontaneously combust if this were to happen.
The perfect ending to the BCS would have been for Alabama, FSU and Ohio St. to all go undefeated, but the gods looked down poorly on our sacrifices. At this point, we have to wonder if the football gods are even real. I guess we’ll find out Saturday night.
I’m sorry, but any coach would’ve said the same thing. That guy is blowing that press conference out of proportion.
It seems like now-a-days everyone is “soft” and it is quite frankly annoying to me. Tough love works too. You don’t need to hand out participation trophies so that the kids who didn’t win don’t feel bad. Maybe not giving them participation trophies will make those kids work harder so they do win next time.
I don’t know, but I didn’t have any issue with what Saban said. He also took responsibility for the loss.
However, I wasn’t that happy with Saban’s call to kick a 57 yard field goal. But, shit happens and if it would’ve worked, people would’ve called him a genius. Same as if Brady Hoke having Michigan go for 2 instead of the tie/OT would’ve worked… OR what if the Michigan State’s Little Giants play against Notre Dame a couple years ago wouldn’t have worked… people would STILL be judging Mark Dantonio.
Thanks to straight-from-the-mitten for sharing this article with me.
this has to be shopped all the angles i saw looked like he was in bounds… and im a bam a fan
I was told that this is a photo of her TV screen and that no photoshopping was involved.
Here’s something that no one seems to be talking about.
From this picture, it looks like Auburn’s Chris Davis stepped out of bounds during that missed field goal return at the end of the Alabama vs Auburn game.
I haven’t seen one thing about this in the media.
Now that Alabama has fallen from the ranks of the unbeaten, there will be a lot of debate over whether or not a one-loss SEC team should jump an undefeated Ohio State for a spot in the BCS title game. In a poll done by ESPN’s SportsNation in regard to Ohio State, the results will surprise nobody.
Alabama vs. Auburn lived up to the hype.
With the score tied 28-28 and one second on the clock, Crimson Tide head coachNick Saban called for a 57-yard game-winning field-goal attempt from kicker Adam Griffith.
The kick fell short, and Tigers return man Chris Davis returned it from the end zone all the way back for a score. Of course, fans from both teams reacted, which can be seen in the accompanied videos.
So a couple of my roommates asked me what needed to happen for Alabama to still go to the National Championship Game. I did my best to explain it to them with out going into the computers and all that jazz. Half the time, I don’t even understand the computers. LoL Then I figured this would make a really awesome blog post. So here y’all go. I might not be 100% but this would give Bama the best shot.
First, at least 1 of the undefeated teams needs to lose (Ohio State or Florida State).
Second, 1 loss teams, who play in a conference championship need to lose.
#21 Texas A&M (8-3) has to beat #5 Missouri (10-1 making them 10-2)
#10 South Carolina (9-2) has to beat #6 Clemson (10-1 making them 10-2)
NEXT SATURDAY (the records are IF the above happens):
South Carolina (10-2) has to beat Auburn (10-1 making them 10-2) in the SEC Championship Game
Michigan State (10-1) has to beat Ohio State (11-0 making them 10-1) in the Big Ten Championship Game
These two things happening will also help Alabama’s chances, but won’t hurt if they don’t:
Duke (9-2) has to beat Florida State (11-0 making them 10-1) in the ACC Championship Game
Oklahoma (9-2) has to beat Oklahoma State (10-1 making them 10-2) next weekend
CORRECTION: I forgot that if Texas A&M beat Missouri, Auburn would play South Carolina.
I turned my phone off during the 4th quarter of the Alabama vs Auburn game because people would not stop texting me. I don’t even want to turn it back on because I KNOW everyone from home is talking s**t and my phone might blow up. So that’s why I’m not responding. Sorry.
I can NOT believe the game just ended that way. Cade Foster will NEVER forget the 3 missed field goals… the fact that a red shirt freshman, who has only kicked TWICE in his whole career had to attempt that game winning field goal is embarrassing.
