    When we were bad, we took great solace in their losses -- how their best team will go down in history as the only undefeated SEC champion to be shut out of the BCS title game. I'm afraid we share some of the same shadow.

    I think there are some Bama fans like this but it appears to me there are way more Barners who do this -- living vicariously through the teams that get lucky and beat Bama.

    I agree, but as much as I hate to say it, I don't think we're quite as removed as we like to think. We've shown we can get pulled down to their level.

    It was another Auburn 'Moral Victory'.
    (When that's all you got, you go with it...)

    Auburn's just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
    Chizik is just waiting for the shoe to kick him out.

    Auburn fans are just waiting for someone to pinch em, wake em up, and tell em this has only been a nightmare...

    What they don't realize is Bama's always gonna win more than we lose so it's like they lose every time we win. My head hurts.

    I'm not sure any fan base can get pulled down to the level rolling their own trees. Burning couches is close...

    While I am very disappointed that we lost on Saturday. I find your comment may ring true to a fringe element of Alabama fans. I make this statement based on being a Alabama fan for over 40 years. (40 years of attending, listening and watching games). I have witnessed our fan base at its best. The 70's and currently and during the Dubose and Shula years. But I have never seen our fan base hide or live vicariously thru teams that beat Auburn. Our fan base is not one the jumps on our bandwagon when we win. I am sure the younger kids do bu thats how many become fans.

    I am not pleased to see Auburn play like they are the bottom dwellers of the conference. It directly reflects on SEC and the state that a team to hit bottom just two year after a MNC. So does it bode of uglier things to come. It does and we have lived thru NCAA sanctions.

    I hope we all remain above that level. And even out darkest days the teams never gave up. Go look at the score of the games when we went 6-7.

I deleted a "friend" during the 2009 season because every single one of her posts did nothing but spew hatred and venom at Bama's team, players, and coaches. She never said anything about her tigers.
    Yep. Had to "de-friend" someone this past week. His comments were just too much for me to stomach.

    Saban has 13 losses at Alabama, Auburn has 8 losses alone this year. 'Nuff said. It'll take *U another half century to get back in the NT hunt, while Alabama is still in the NT hunt this year.

    IOW: SNASS.

    Thats funny because I said the same thing when they scored 60 points on the booger eaters. The difference is that them losing doesnt dictate my entire life because of (in their case) a sad pathetic lack of one where all I have to do is go online or etc. to say it to the other dumb inbred sheephumpers to make everyone feel better about their collective sad mental case.
