    Most everyone under 50 will not remember the early 70's.

    I saw the 78, 79, 92, 2009, 2011 games, all victories.

    to answer the original question the 92 championship was the best performance. Not just the D.

    The crap QB (according to miami fans) and "the Wimp, the Gimp and the Blimp" pushed Miami's D all over the field

    I'd have to go with the '92 game as well, with 2011 a strong second. But there are some on this board that will remember that '65 Orange Bowl, when Bear's "little boys" ran Nebraska's big old boys ragged. Can't remember if we were ranked #1, or if we were picked to beat them, but a really satisfying win!

    Same here. I'm a little nervous about the upcoming one but I've told my son WE don't lose on the big stage. A real champion may spill coffee on himself when he's on a date with a so-so girl but he brings his A-GAME when it's for all the marbles! We did that against Penn St, Miami and LSU. I think we'll bring it for ND. Btw, the win against Miami was the best performance. That Miami team was a great offensive squad but I honestly think Torretta and company were a little hungover from the partying the night before. They really thought they had it in the bag. We proved 'em wrong.

    Hard to choose between 78 & 92?

    Coach Saban's confidence will be huge. Just like Texas, Michgan and the rest, Aabama has a inferiority complex towards Notre Dame. It feels differently playing them than any other team, hard to explain but it's there. I believe it originates with their representing the biggest religious sect on the globe. That's kind of an unfair advantage having fans believing their team is divine My paper (The Cullman Times) ran an article discussing the split in the fanbase here, which I though was crazy. They implied that Catholics(Me) are automatic Notre Dame fans, like I have this inner conflict between my Alma mater and my religion. Crazy article.

    Coach Bryants goose egg against them and their leap frog costing us a championship compounded things a lot and is the root of the hatred for them(yes hatred). The hit on Steve Beuerlein represented more than just a good sack for many, it was how they feel about them.

    When we beat Notre Dame, it will go down as the best National Championship performance imo, hands down. It will be epic and the crowning moment of the Alabama Dynasty.

    Got to be 2011 for me. Not crossing the 50 until the 4th is just incredible, such a dominating performance.

    I was only 6 in 1992 so I don't remember that NC. I will have to go with 2011 against LSU. That was a dominating performance, and I felt so good after that NC. More so than the 2009 NC.

    This is true. I had no confidence that we would win.......or maybe that Coach Curry would win.

    Do you remember when ESPN claimed that "Miami was playing a good high school team" ? I always believed that was before the 89 game, but several posters corrected me saying it was the 92 game. If you or anyone else is 100% sure, let me know.

    Wasn't the quote semi pro team versus a good high school team? It was the 1992 game, i'm 99% sure. Main reason is that I was out of the country for the 3 weeks prior to the 89 Game and heard none of the lead in for it.

    I had no confidence in the 89 game either, no one really did after the inexcusable loss to the barn a few weeks prior

    For me it was 1992, although 2011 is close 2nd.

    This thread is a little like that ESPN video going around "What Bama fans talk about". Not many fan bases get to sit around and try to decide which national championship win was the best. It IS great to be a Bama fan!

    By the way...I have to go with 21-0. But a win over ND would vault to the top of my list.

    If you remember the semi pro part, then I am confident that you have the date correct as well. Hard to believe they would make such an unread comment considering the known talent we had on defense, plus Palmer, the RB's and OL. I guess that is the reason my mind flipped it to 89.
