    The latest excuse for losing to Bama

    2009 - If only Colt hadn't gotten hurt
    2011 - If only Les Miles weren't an idiot
    2012 - If only Manti Te'o's girlfriend were real
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    This thread may get interesting now that Skip Bayless apparently made the case the fake g/f distracted Teo (and I guess their entire defense) from the game.

    Excuses are like you know what; everyone has them and they all stink. We have the trophies in Tuscaloosa, so I'll let them whine until the end of days because it won't change who actually won.

    You know what distracted Te'o? Chance Warmack and Jesse Williams...

    You know, as I think about, this puts Brian Kelly's halftime comments ("If they don't show up...") in much clearer context.

    If you lurk on some of the Texas boards they're still sulking about the Colt injury. Some of them probably would blame LSU's loss last year and ND's loss this year on Colt's injury.

    Excuses, excuses. I don't care what they say. The bottom line is...#15 is in the bag. I don't recall too many excuses when Bama lost to A&M (beat up, emotionally drained after LSU), but by and large, we took it as A&M beat us. Sure, Bama had the chance at the end, but either you do, or you don't. Do like CNS AND Bama did, take it like a champion and take care of business the rest of the season. Bama didn't whine and gripe about the loss. CNS worked his 'magic' on them and they focused and things fell into place and here we are...AGAIN! The 70's were great, but this is phenomenal. Remember 'Steely Dan', they got a name for the winners in the world, and 'Crimson Tide' is one of them.

    Strange that the hoax or possible exposure of the hoax affected Teo's play in the BCSCG so adversely when the deaths of his loved ones didn't in earlier games.

    The flip side is---Maybe Alabama took it easy on Manti Tao and Notre Dame because of the tragic death of his girlfriend.

    Exactly. That is where the excuse gets revoked.

    Well, one thing we know for sure is that Alabama can recover better from a real killer tornado than ND can from a non-existent GF.
