    To be perfectly fair, the guys at Roll Bama Roll have suggested similar things.

    It is an interesting thought. But I think I only agree if for some reason CNS does not return next year and/or next season is his last with us. While he is here we will be be quite good and occasionally dominating.

    Wholeheartedly agree, but assuming he doesn't for thread discussion-sake, don't you think a loss to UGA would set the tongues wagging and make for an uneasy summer on the Capstone?

    This end of an era crap is simply an opinion of someone who has nothing else to but sit around all day thinking about what might happen or what something might mean. I will tell you what it means to me. It means the SEC is way better top to bottom than when CNS first set foot in Tuscaloosa with the exception of ut and au.

    Think about the coaching upgrades; Mullen rather than Croom, Freeze rather than Orgeron, Franklin rather than Johnson, Petrino rather than Nutt. Then add Miles, Spurrier, Richt, now Muschamp, not to mention the addition of TAMU and Sumlin. On the other hand only au and ut have backed up, UK is worse off, but after all it is Kentucky. If we lose today or if we win and then lose to ND, how could you construe that to be the end of an era? You cannot win very game and sometimes you lose because you get outplayed. To me that is very simple to understand.

    i think people are reading too much into georgia this year. before the season began, the consensus was that georgia would skate to the seccg with no losses (maybe 1, but most people thought 0) and probably get hammered by either bama or lsu. if they do win, it will do nothing to slow down the dominant program that alabama has become.

    remember, this was supposed to be a "down" year for us with all that we were replacing. we are now in year 5 of one of the most dominant periods of alabama football ever, that is not suddenly going away.

    I don't think this era at Bama will be over until Saban leaves. However, I do think it will bring us back to the pack a little bit because I think we will slip a little bit next year already due to losses on both lines. I think Nick Saban hates losing as much as most of us Bama fans hate losing. We will be rocking as long as he is here.
    With that said, I really hope we beat Georgia so badly that Notre Dame players and coahes crap their pants. Then I hope we beat Notre Dame so badly on the field that they do it again. Roll Tide!

    Where do they get these ideas?
    A loss to Ga. would hurt, but it wouldn't be the end of the world either...
    You can't exactly call a loss the end of an era...
    Please remember that Coach Mark Richt has been on the proverbial 'Hot Seat'
    for a couple of years Yet they still play football in the Peach State.

    Also remember that we didn't exactly go the way of the 'Dodo Bird' after the 2010 season.

    I remember a lot of people crowing about the end of an era after the 2010 Iron Bowl loss too. We all see how that has turned out. This era will only end whenever Coach Saban rides off to the lake house, regardless of what happens in the game today...
    That's the paradox of success. The moment you stop to enjoy it, you are in trouble. You have to keep moving forward. It's not what you have done that's important. It's where you are going.

    No disrepect to youngsters but the author of this article is a freshman at Alabama. That means he's 18 or 19 years old. Not a whole lot of life experiences to be making such bold statements. Maybe in his short life span all this seems so epic but for those of us who have followed Bama since the CPB days it's just another period of dominance. It too, will come to end at some point but I doubt today's game is going to be the defining moment. Even if CNS were to decide to start slowing down (highly unlikely) we are still going to be good for several more years to come based on where the program is.

    Let me say at the outset that I expect Alabama to beat Georgia. Still, college football games seldom come with a higher upside for the winner and a lower downside for the loser than tomorrow's SECCG. If Alabama beats Georgia, and goes on to beat Notre Dame in the BCSNC game, all of Alabama's historically significant football rivals will, in some manner, have been vanquished (at least for now) under Nick Saban's tenure. During the Saban era, the Auburn "streak" ended and Tuberville fled the state. Tennessee now occupies the bottom quarter of the SEC, and the Great Pumpkin no longer coaches. The Tide took down Texas - a team Alabama had never before beaten - and in Pasadena of all places. Hercules had 12 labors, but it seems to me that Nick Saban has only one major exorcism left to perform at Alabama and that involves Notre Dame. In the Hercules legend, the 12th labor - kidnapping the beast called Cerberus from the Underworld - was the most dangerous of all since no mortal had ever returned from Hades alive. Godspeed to Nick!
    No doubt we have some dragons to slay.
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    Another factor that goes against the grain of an "end of era" thesis connected with a Georgia win today is the Alabama schedule for 2013. With both Auburn and Tennessee in a weakened state, the only teams on our 2013 schedule that look to be at all challenging currently are Virginia Tech, TX A&M, and LSU.
