I personally hope the 2013 version will be kinda "never again" rematch type game. Tillman is off his rocker again. RTR

1.A&M was the 5th game in a really tough 5 game stretch for us and we really came out flat after the LSU win. I told people all year last year how much I dreaded that 5 game stretch.
2.What about UGA? They lost to us in almost the exact same fashion as we lost to A&M. just a few yards away at the end of the game. They score and they are BCS champs and likely preseason #1 going into 2013.
On a side note.....I'm so glad to be talking about things like this in the off season and not anything negative.

Remember how from December 2008 until 12 months later the spread attack was the end of Saban?
If Spencer Tillman says it then it must be true!
We will see how scared we are next season.

This was the week after a physical and emotional game vs LSU, and A&M had an exposed, beaten-down Miss St (destroyed by Bama the week prior to that!).
I know it is an "ifs" and "buts" conversation, but we had them on the ropes before making some less than desired play calling on the last drive. Jalston Fowler's absence didn't help that, either!
Even after AJ's INT, there was still some life left, until the offsides penalty nailed the coffin shut.
Saban and Bama aren't scared...they are DROOLING at the opportunity for a revenge of epic proportions! Will be a nice way to celebrate a belated 100 year birthday for Coach Bryant!
I guess Saban should do what Granny Lou said retire. Get while the getting is good.

After reading the paper's total interview with Tillman, I took this more as a hit job and indictment of Bob Stoops and Oklahoma than anything negative toward us. Some other notable past Sooner greats have come out recently, along with Tillman, and been openly critical of their program, specifically for not playing defense anymore.

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!! I need what ol Spence is smoking!!!!!!“Nick Saban is scared to death. Because now Kevin Sumlin not only has a system that has been proven to work as a counterpunch at lesser programs like the University of Houston, where you can win 12 (with) the scheme (and) the pace of the game. Now he’s got the Jimmys and the Joes that look just like Alabama’s guys getting off the bus.
I forget, how many teams have CNS lost 2 games in a row to the same team? Unless I'm mistaken that would be none.
