    Re: Is Alabama currently a dynasty?

    no team has won 2 consecutive titles in the BCS era.
    winning back to back BCSNCG would also add another perception to a dynasty.

    the excerpt below is worth reading. if Bama were to win its 3rd in 4 years, impressive is an understatement in the modern era.


    "It is no accident that only one program has built a dynasty in the past 20 years. With no disrespect meant to any team on the list, dynasty came more easily when Notre Dame played a nine-game season in the 1940s, or Alabama played a 10-game season in the 1960s, or even when the Crimson Tide and Miami played an 11-game seasons in the 1970s and 80s. In recent years, national champions regularly play 14 games."

    Re: Is Alabama currently a dynasty?

    I actually think we need to win this one AND the next as the detractors will say that Saban had one gargantuan recruiting year (2008) and that is that. If we win next year, especially with a relatively young D, then a dynasty it is.

    Re: Is Alabama currently a dynasty?

    Yes this is a dynasty still in progress. We have been the it team going on 4 years playing in 3 BCS championships, 2 conference, 2 or 3 national championships. Last years at times we were the best team that I have ever seen watching college ball, period. The LSU game put us in a fishbowl. 8/10 at a neutral site we win the game. That will always hurt because the 2011 team was a terror.

    I don't think that will be a huge issue. Everyone, no matter how they feel about Saban, will acknowledge that he's one of the best recruiters in the business. The proof of that is every year under him we've had top 5 recruiting classes with the exception of one that still was in top 10. I think the term dynasty is subjective, and it's debatable whether or not we can claim we are in the midst of one right now, I don't think anyone in their right mind is going to claim that it's because we got "lucky" with one class.

    We have one of the youngest teams in the top 25 anyway...

    I know what you mean. But I disagree, its just not like that anymore. Nowadays we carry more weight as the defending champs.

    This, especially considering the human vote is only 1/3 of the BCS formula.
