    Would a win on Monday be UA's biggest win ever?

    Is this our biggest game ever? There have been many enormous wins in UA's historic past, numerous championships, epic rival victories and even a few unbelievable come from behind wins. All of those wins were the biggest at the time in many fans eyes. However, this year championship game on Monday may in fact have the makings to become the greatest game in Alabama football lore. When you just look at what all is at stake in this game i cant think of any other game that can compare to what kind of impact a win over "Bama's biggest adversary of all time". Win or lose there is so much at stake in this game, impact on the program, its history, tradition, the SEC , Nick Saban, back to back BCS, 3 out of 4, quieting ND's mystique, recruiting, etc.

    I know some will probably site other games in the past and why they may be Bama's biggest ever but with everything this game represents i honestly cant see how any other game in our past would be a bigger win.

    Lets complete the process! RTR

    Wasn't around when we were struggling for an identity and won several Rose Bowls but would believe that without those wins, Bama would have had a lesser opportunity to take on a national prominence. Conversely if we lose tomorrow, it won't be our biggest loss either as our prowess over the last 5 years and our coach will keep us chasing the crystal ball for some time to come.

    I don't know if it would be Bama's biggest win, but for me personally it would be the most satisfying.

    No. Not even close. May make the top 10 after some debate.

    1926 Rose Bowl changed college football forever - that was your biggest win.

    Maybe the question should be changed to our biggest win in recent years.


    To me..it would be the biggest. Not really based on who we played, but what it meant. (back to back championships). I am too young for the ND history part of it.

    It would shut up the media for starters, bring the Golden Domers back down to earth, and give an opportunity for those juniors staying, another chance to defend the NC for 2013.

    Too young to say. But it would be huge. Texas stands out because we had never beaten them. I'm sure the older ladies and gents would smile ear to ear.

    I knew I would get some of the above responses with this question and of course 1926 was huge. But its like building a record breaking tall building. Sure the foundation is super important but that highest point of the building is the biggest most important piece.

    IMO you don't have a greatest win in your schools history (1926) and then say no other win in the future could ever be as big. Sure they can. For one the competition is much tougher now for starters. Records are made to be broken, biggest wins are there to strive to have bigger ones. What game got Bama the most respect? 1926, what game opened the most doors? 1926. Bust biggest win in out schools history? I think you have to take everything into account when choosing.

    The biggest win in my lifetime was 92 vs Miami......

    The second biggest win in my lifetime (to me) was the 2010 win VS Mich State -- because that signaled we were not One and Done and then ride off into the sunset -- it told the whole world -- "UH OH" -- that victory VS Mich State did more to help us win in 2011 than anyone ever imagined.

    With your history, I agree, but even then I find it hard the believe that you guys believe this one to be more important than last year's given the Tuscaloosa tornado devastation. Yeah, it is Notre Dame - but they are now just another team.
