    Have you ever felt personally responsible for an Alabama win or loss?

    Against UF in 1999 I think the luck from rubbing our pet rabbit's foot actually helped Alabama beat Florida in The Swamp.
    Maybe it is just coincidence, but every time we did this, something good happened.

    On the other hand, in 2010,I was traveling and did not wear my lucky houndstooth shirt and Alabama lost to USCe.The fact that I was not wearing it was gnawing at me all day and when I heard the final score I felt a cold chill.I still feel a bit of responsibility for this loss.....It still kind of bothers me......

    Anyone else ever have an experience like this????
    Again, maybe it is all coincidence, but maybe not.

    I have always wondered why we didn't win that game. Now, I know.

    Where was that houndstooth shirt this year when we played A & M earlier this season?

    I'm not very superstitious, but I always wear some Bama gear, whether in the stadium or at home, during the game...

    Not a bit. I neither wear anything lucky, nor do I do anything consistently. I'm like Earl in the sense that I always wear something Bama, but that's to show support, not because of superstition.

    Responsible for win or loss? Absolutely not.

    However....I have a loose obsession with Karma. I often tell people that Karma is a (insert bad word) and just happens to be my friend. Anywho....I don't gamble and have a hard rule about any kind of betting where Bama is involved. I might bet a coke on the UF/FSU game for example but I would never do this if it involved Bama. Except twice. Once vs UT 5 or 6 years ago.....and vs Okla St in a bowl game a few years ago. In both cases, i made a TShirt bet and ended up wearing orange to work.....and I've always felt that I 100% deserved it.
