The University of Alabama: Class of 1997

Okie lite pinned a lot of hopes on the same thing last year. It didn't happen then, won't this year either.

We still have a big game with Michigan to close out the season, but next year is going to be tough. We lose a lot of talent to graduation and we do not get the benefit of the extra bowl practices. If we are somehow ranked in the top 5 to start the season, it will be hard to stay there - but it will not be because of some great conspiracy.
