    All losses suck equally to me.

    This. There is no such thing as a "Top 5" loss. There's only the "Bottom 5".

    Yes, all these losses were painful at the time. Fortunately, there's 10 wonderful wins for every loss to wipe away those memories. Living in Georgia, I'm having a blast right now wearing my Bama gear. So funny to wear my Bama shirt to the grocery store and see someone look at my shirt and watch their faces change.

    A Georgia fan coworker walked past me the other day and said "Alabama won't beat Notre Dame" to which I replied, "maybe not, but I'm damn sure Georgia won't"....and kept on walking.

    Yeah, I don't think Notre Dame will be lacking in physicality. Their biggest weakness - which isn't exactly weak - on defense is their secondary. I think the pressure point is being able to make enough successful runs to bring one of Notre Dame's safeties down into a run support role. I've heard some Notre Dame fans say that they can stop the run with seven but I haven't seen a team stop us with a seven man front in years.

    I suspect that the difference will be how Notre Dame copes with a team that can match up physically more than any team other than Stanford but with a far more coherent passing game than what they faced in that Stanford game. I wouldn't put Alabama's receivers in the same class as USC's but the overall receiver group and QB combination is better than what they caught against USC that night. If they have a great night from their secondary, they will have a great chance to win.

    This is the beginning of a new day.God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or or use it for good.What I do today is very important because Im exchanging a day of my life for it.When tommorow comes,this day will be gone forever. Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not loss - good, not evil. Success, not failure in order that I Shall not forget the price I paid for it.

    Sip, don't you mean 1994 SECCG? In 2004 we weren't all that great.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Re: Top five Alabama losses in my lifetime

    The Gamecock fan in me could spend a week listing "top" losses. As a Bama fan I'll list the ones I remember (born 1967).

    5. MSU/Bama 6-3 1980
    4. UT/Bama 16-14 1985 (I was there, Bama was better team just lost, 4 in a row for vols)
    3. Utah/Bama 31-17 2009 (this game still talked about by talking heads as an example of why mid majors deserve equal treatment with big boys, jus a bad loss)
    2. Nebraska/Bama 38-6 1972 (beat down was actually worse than the score)
    1. ND/Bama 24-23 1973 (watched with my dad and brothers, my dad, a Bama grad, was visibly upset)
