I've gotta go with the '09 beat down of Florida in the SECCG. I know, it's not on the list, but that was the NC game that year. Texas coming a few weeks later was just a bump on the road.
Seriously, I want to give a shout out to that game in '09 against Texas. First NC in almost 20 years and it signaled the beginning of the CNS Dynasty at Alabama. Remember what he said? "This is not the end; this is the beginning."
If we would not have slacked up in the second half and allowed them to get back in it, we would probably view it a lot more like '92 or '11.
One interesting side note about the 65 game against Nebraska. Coach Bryant pulled a Coach Saban on this one. We were ranked fourth going into the New Years Day Bowl games and every team in front of us lost....lol
That gave us a chance and we took advantage...
I love all of them but 92 and 09 were great just due to the fact that it had been so long of a wait to get back to that point. My what great times we are living in now. RTR
Don't remember 65, but of those I recall, I'm going to go with '92 for the reasons already stated. Last year was a very close second. It is easy to forget that everyone in the country besides was busy talking about whether LSU was the best team in the last 100 years of college football or something they way they had made it through the regular season. I thought we could beat them, though not throttled them the way our defense did.
But '92 was just the whole thing, underdogs, undermanned, counted out by everyone and we just dominated them on both sides of the ball all night, and out coached them at a level I wouldn't have thought possible. Incredible team effort.
Hey Tidefans, do you prefer cake or ice cream? Which of your children is your best one?
I'm old enough to remember the heartbreak Bama has endured from Notre Dang. I think we will wipe the floor with them, but even if we win a squeaker by one point...that will be Bama's most satisfying National Championship.
Chuck, check the records on this one. A whole bunch of teams had to lose before we played. I believe we had a loss and a tie that year and were ranked fourth or fifth going into the bowl game. Everybody on top of us had to lose, and, bless their little hearts, they did. Then Steve Sloan threw on virtually every down in the first half.
I have to point out that BAMA football is truly blessed, becuase there are so many choices . We could be like the Barn. Well, there was 57, when we were cheaters, or there was 2010, when Ca$h Newton won it for us. They only have 2 to choose from, and there is controvercy with both of them.
Having said that, I loved the 79 Championship. We had Bear Bryant, and Jo Pa. Two of the classiest coaches ever. Forget about the Penn State scandal. Joe Paterno was a great coach, and a class act. That had to have been the best as far as classy. But, then again 92 was class / thug, and class won.
Nick Saban is a great coach, but his championships are starting to run together . And he keeps piling on more
1992, without a doubt! I was living in Florida at the time, and the Canes fans were even more obnoxious than their players. I watched in joy and amazement as the heisman trophy winner counted the ceiling tiles in the SuperDome!
o/t, does anyone else remember the hit that Eric Curry and John Copeland put on Heath Shuler in Knoxville in 92? I'd love to see a .gif it that!
