    Eyes on Auburn radio show earlier tonight

    Anyone hear this show tonight?

    Driving home tonight I was listening to Eyes on Auburn radio show for a bit of entertainment.

    Rob Pate a former Auburn player is one of the host. After they finished whining about Alabama cherry picking their top recruits; Foster, Liner, etc.

    One of the hosts made the comment that Alabama is promoting to recruits their success as an up and coming program.
    Then he stated --However in 2 of their 3 National Titles Alabama had 1 loss seasons and backed into the BCS title games. And in their other national title game Alabama played a team that lost their starting QB and linebacker. Implying that--Alabama isn't really all they are cracked up to be--every recruit should realize this.


    What is going on down on the Plains? I did not think it could get any worse for those people.

    Its called denial. Most likely a psychological meaning somewhere (will defer to the appropriate resident professionals here on TideFans). Loving this era of Crimson Tide football RTR

    My first thought regarding the one loss comment is "so what?" Every other team had a loss BOTH years, so what's the point? The whine about Colt - well, we injured him on a clean hit. How many games did we play that year without Donta Hightower?

    And besides - Auburn won, bought, rented a national title. This should make our job HARDER. That we won two titles right after they won one is a sensational achievement. And since we're in the excuse business, didn't Auburn face Arkansas for much of that 2010 game without starter Ryan Mallett? Didn't Auburn beat us in 2005 when we were without Prothro and much of the O-line? Look, those excuses are ridiculous but the same thing goes on against Auburn.

    Oh - and wasn't Oregon's starting QB for 2010 (Masoli) - a senior - dismissed from the team? I mean, if you're gonna play that game then their title is as tainted as ours - even before Camgate.
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart

    I listened to a few minutes, couldn't stand it long, they were on the big "fambly" spill and how great Auburn is. They definitely could not deny that RF was a big loss for them to take. Surprisingly, according to most sites they will still end up with a Top 15 recruiting class...

    Don't try to figure out their mentality. Gotta say though that they backed into 1/3 of their wins this last year. Surely even the most delusional realize that. Nah, guess not.

    Had one ask me today if we had 'roid dispensers in our new wieght room. I just replied "we sure do, just fill the cup like an Icee." They are a jealous and miserable lot.

    An aub at work said for two years in a row we played someone who was not a good team and how lucky we were in BCS games. I laughed in his face! We defeated the UNDEFEATED #1 team two years in a row ~ BUT WE ARE LUCKY.

    Yes, but top 15 is not even top 5 in the SEC. Heck, they're looking at 5th in the West, behind us, LSU, Texas A&M and Ole Miss - at best.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    To get to the BCSNCG, about a million things have to go right. Most of them are completely out of your control. Things like injuries, rankings, and especially what happens to other highly ranked teams that you don't play. If K State and Oregon had not lost in 2012, Bama would have played in the Sugar Bowl. Our team had no effect on those schools' records, for the simple reason that neither of them was on our schedule. If we had lost a second game, would one of those teams have been considered to have "backed into" the NCG? Or would people just say they had a better record?

    My point is, CNS and his staff is the best there is at positively effecting whatever IS within "our" control. (By "our" I mean all of Tide Nation, from the team to the fans.) The best thing any program can do to get to the BCSNCG is just win, and keep winning. All K State and Oregon had to do was win out. They did not. If you don't take care of your own business, you can't expect wonderful things to just fall from the sky.

    There will always be the whiners. "Oh, if only Colt hadn't gotten hurt." "Oh, if only..." Whatever. The fact is, our team took care of business, and there are three crystal footballs in Bryant Museum to show for it. For 2009, 2011 and 2012, all those other programs just have... excuses.

    Did they explain how we backed into a 49-0 win against Allbarn?
