    My favorite is always the next one. And being a Bama supporter, there is always a next one.

    Well, I was only 8 during the 1992 championship....and I wasn't living in Bama or knew who the crimson tide were. Haha, so that doesn't count for me.

    Out of the last three, hard to choose. I would say 2009, because it was my "first" championship as a fan.

    I was born in '46 (making me an AQ of the OFC, I suppose), but cognitive of '61 forward. Total of 10, not counting the '45/'46 team.

    "61 was my fav because it was CPB's first at Bama. Great, great team.

    Seven here also. But I'm torn between '92, in which we supposedly had no chance AT ALL, and '09, the culmination of an inevitable return to glory after 17 years in the wilderness. Both were fantastic and special seasons.

    92 was very special. I've posted this before, but you could just feel Bear in the building (Superdome where he won his last two NCs) that night. No way he was going to not see his man Bebes and his beloved Bama win that NC.

    I thought you might have some of the same memories, air raid practice, blackout curtains, etc. I think my memories of WWII are so sharp because of having two older brothers serving. One was in SE England in the 8th Air Force. The other was flying sub patrol off SE Florida. So, we had two blue stars hanging in the front window. Every night, we got down on our knees and prayed we wouldn't have to change those stars to gold. That sort of thing tends to stick with you. of course, I was a bit prickly as a little tike. When told I needed to get under the bed when the air raids were called, I had a habit of asking if the Germans really had bombers who could reach us. The answer came back that, no, not now, but they might some day. Then, later, came the Cold War and the "duck and cover" drills in school. Two whole generations were marked indelibly...

    I was born in 1969, so I've been here for 7, but I only remember six. The first Tide game I ever saw was the 79 Sugar Bowl. I saw the goal line stand but I didn't grasp the significance of it. I do remember thinking "Why don't they pass?" Hey, I was nine.

    My favorite - by far - was 1992, and I think that's because it was somewhat unexpected. When we were 6-0, all anyone could do was say we had barely beaten La Tech and only led Tulane 6-0 at the half. Keep in mind the previous year we had won our final six games all by a TD or less, including a 10-7 rout of Memphis, so we were not highly regarded at the time. In fact, the October 31 SportsCenter literally mocked us and brought Corky Simpson's name out as "the lone dissenter" from the split votes insisting Washington and Miami would blow us off the field. In fact, we were lumped in with Toledo and other unbeatens.

    Then Washington lost.

    And the new story was how Florida State deserved a rematch. It was a lot like 2011, with everyone saying we were undeserving. One big difference: unlike Oklahoma State last year, we did not lose to 2-8-1 LSU in Red Stick. When we beat Florida to clinch the game, I was high- step dancing around the living room (and I can't dance, folks) singing Fats Domino's "Walking To New Orleans."

    Then we heard for four solid weeks that we had no chance.

    Then Michael Rogers was injured in a car wreck - so much for no distractions. When we led at the half I was scared - because I'd seen teams not finish off Miami in the second half. But that sequence - starting with Johnson's pick through Teague's strip - was the most fun ten minutes I ever had as a Tide fan.

    A buddy of mine - an FSU fan who said Miami would kill us - was at the Orange Bowl where they played Nebraska. He said the stands came alive as the score kept soaring higher - 20-6, 27-6. They were as shocked as anyone.


    Let me put it this way - we've been favored in the other five. We were 9-point dogs in 1992.

    1992, 2009, 2011, & 2012. 2012 would have to be my favorite.

    Born in 73 so I only remember the last 4. I would have to go with 2009 as my favorite it made me feel iike we were truly back after the down years. Not to mention our first win over Texas.

    61-64-65-73-78-79-92-09-11 and 12 Although since my birth was in 61, I don't really remember the ones in the 60's as I didn't keep up as my Dad did. I can't say I have a favorite, that is like saying I have a favorite kid or wife...althoguh beating the pants off ND ranks right up there.

    'And here comes LeeRoy' as the announcer at Legion Field (anybody remember his name?) said as he ran back on the field for the goal line stand to preserve the shutout of the boogs.
