    When was the last time our defense was just BAD

    I'm curious. Even when our defense is weak we're still one of the better defenses. And I mean like AUBURN bad

    Re: When was the last time our defense was just BAD

    Even when sanctions were biting at their worse, I don't remember a Tide team being this bad on D the way the Barn is. Yes, they were outmanned mainly due to lack of depth and would lose games in the 4th Qtr when the Tide were just discomknockerated.

    Shula's first season. Remember the 3rd and 30 at Tennessee to lose the game? Big improvement the next year. Everyone was screaming for Kines head.

    We lost 35-0 to Florida in 1991. I can't think of any other loss that bad in the last 30-40 years.

    I think that was more of being unprepared to the fun n gun. We ended up in the Fiesta Bowl, but were blown out!

    I was at that game. It was a bad loss but the defense wasn't awful. We couldn't do anything on offense so D was on field forever.

    Seems like Woodson started and Barker came in for his 1st game.

    No, Bama went 11-1 in that season '91) including a win on Colorado in the bowl game. UA played in the Fiesta Bowl at the end of the 1990 season and lost badly to Louisville.

    Believe the D struggled in 1997, Dubose's first year. Team went 4-7 that year.

    We were hammered @ UGA in 2003 when Brodie broke his shoulder. 37-10 in the 3rd before it ended up 37-23 in junk time.

    Raj: Excuse me, I can't be drinking, I'm about to make an important scientific discovery here!
    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!
