    That is why I consider this to be Miles' worst decision. He had a chance to end the game on a 4th and 6 play. Zach was playing out of his mind. When their FG unit came onto the field, I cheered. Hit it or miss it, Alabama still had a chance.

    Re: Friendly Reminder to our LSU lurkers

    Look, I have a question for Earle & other knowledgable fans: Why did the clock stop when the LSU player went out of the game after not getting out of bounds & not making a first down (w/13 seconds) to go AND not staying on the ground (if he was hurt). It stopped for about 8 or 9 seconds.

But holding on to all that poison isn't a good thing for that fanbase.
    I think this is the core reason why it was better this board parted ways with the LSU fans. There were three posters who posted on here that I absolutely have no doubt in my mind are wonderful people. Never had an issue out of them. They were consistent on their boards as they were on here. I respect that and them for being that way.

    But from an overall standpoint, the angst they still have for CNS, thrown in with the already disdain of Alabama fans in general,has pushed this "rivalry" to an unhealthy level. Most of the internet LSU fans on the majority of LSU boards go to levels of filth when talking about Alabama fans and Nick Saban that it is scary to imagine that these people are really like this in person or are they just hiding behind a screen name and a keyboard. But either way these message boards are for the enjoyment of the fans. Not a place to get one's blood pressure and stress level up. There are enough real problems life hands out for that. Some people find it "enjoyable" to talk utter filth to one another on message boards and others do not. So I guess at that point one needs to go to a board that fits their tastes.

    He didn't have the ball in his hands when he stood up so I think he might have fumbled the ball out of bounds thus stopping the clock.

    Re: Friendly Reminder to our LSU lurkers

    I just take this year's game as karma coming full circle for last year. Alabama should have won 2011: Alabama maybe over coached a bit - the Wildcat throw - and LSU made a few more plays down the stretch. LSU should have won 2012: LSU maybe over coached a bit - the 4th down bad calls - and Alabama made a few more plays down the stretch.

    Thank you. I've been wondering the same thing. I was about to start screaming about a fake injury but he just walked off the field. But I still couldn't see at the time why the clock stopped. BTW Mettenberger sure reverted to true form there at the end. Looked totally lost. The sideline shot of him before they went out for the last possession looked like he didn't want any part of it any more.

    FWIW, I agree with some of the LSU fans who believe Miles blew it.

    He made several very questionable coaching decisions that put his team in bad spots.

    Granted, Alabama had the troops to execute at the end. Miles didn't lose the game per se. Alabama won it with a little help from the opposite sideline.
    I also thought Fishhead was pretty level headed and reasonable. But, I also remember the onslaught of poison from the LSU radicals after they won last year in Tuscaloosa. Maybe, at some point in the future, cooler heads will prevail.

    Glad we pulled this one out, but have to wonder myself why we did not run, run, run. The only explanation I can come up with is that we had some beat up running backs and perhaps the game plan was to limit their exposure as much as possible. Sometimes we don't know all the facts about the health of the players. If our backs can recover from all the bumps and bruses, I predict the future games we will see the run game established first to set up the pass.

    I thought the on-side kick was a lulu, too. Why give us field position when they had just scored and their defense had shut us down on the two previous drives. Our fumble bailed Les out.

    Re: Friendly Reminder to our LSU lurkers

    Other than the overboard hatred for Coach Saban, and the fact it gets worse
    when they are butt sore...
    They are as passionate about the LSU team as we are about Alabama Football.

    Last year it got over heated, and out of control, Like talking politics with a hot head
    from the other party.
    Our last minute win will prolong the pain in the Bayou...

    I've got to admit I really enjoyed chatting with a couple of LSU posters. Guys who knew football.

    If it takes us loosing to make LSU rational, I'd just as soon they remain 'Banned '

    and over the edge...

    He also went back to his home board and posted that he only hung out on TF in order to correct us about all things involving LSU. And that was the Lord's own truth. They never added anything of substance to any thread not involving LSU or Miles, and argued and carped endlessly in those threads. Let those two names be mentioned, and here they came, ad nauseum. When I asked them nicely to give it a rest, I got ignored. I have never seen such a sense of entitlement on another school's board. This is not a rivalry board. This is TIDEFANS! There has been some discussion given to setting up a rivalry board, but, even if we do, they won't be allowed back into this board. I'd echo what BB said above that the atmosphere has been so poisoned - by them - that I'm having a hard time imagining a scenario where they'd be allowed back any time soon...

    Big differnce between Spurrier and Coach Saban

    Coach Spurrier and fans had become stagnant, some feel they fans and media kind of ran him off with their unrealistic expectations his last couple of seasons.
    Coach Spurrier would have gone back most likely if not for being asked to interview(insulted him). They wanted Myers
    They won 2 more NC at Florida while Spurrier was struggling at bottom feeder SC
    Coach Spurrier played and won a heisman at Florida.

    Coach Saban left LSU and caught the fans off guard.
    Coach Saban came to their arch Rival and started where he left off at LSU
    LSU has felt second fiddle to Alabama ever since, even when they won their 2 loss season NC.
    Not being an alumi, Coach Saban is free game for them all.

    Big difference between Spurrier and Coach Saban. On a smaller scale it is more similar to Coach Oliver leaving for Auburn. I for one still appreaciate the man, but I guarantee you some of the same one's that can't understand the dislike for Coach Saban despise and vocal call out Brother Oliver.
