One was that Alabama is amazing and will crush all those foolish enough to throw themselves in its path. The other was that Alabama is amazing, but it's been amazing against a bunch of nobodies and also-rans.

    I'm wearing my 'ROSE COLORED GLASSES'... I agree.
    Tua is as big a difference maker as I thought he could be...

    In 2007, I was driving home from work in Nashville listening to Joe Biddle on talk radio the next day after the 'Bama hires Saban' news. For a while it was an entourage of anti-SEC and anti-Bama callers with a few hostile Miami fans mixed in. Biddle listened and thanked for the calls. THEN......a relaxed easy going fan called in and it went like this...."Joe? You know? These folks just have NO IDEA.....of what is about to happen do they?" Joe (who is no Bama fan. Good friend of Spurrier from East Tenn) said, "Well..I don't think they do, but they are fixing to find out". WHEN all those people did find out.. They fixed their hopes on how Nick Saban would get a better job soon elsewhere. Tuberville for example. Eh eh!! Wonder if ol ' Tommy recalls promising SEC fans that CNS would move along in 4 or 5 years? Hey SEC....YOU called it down. You loved it when we suffered. We ain't done. Looking forward to the rest of this show!! Roll Tide!!!!

It also sets a bar for others to rise to. To those who say it ruins sports have not watched enough sports. Baseball was at its best when Yankees dominated, Ali, Tyson,Earnhardt, Schumacher, Andretti, for any who follow racing. I watch a lot of sports, and they all seem to be the big draw when you have a dominate player or team. Does anyone really watch college ball if the top four all have a loss or 2? NO we want to see an undefeated team, or 2 so we can pull for a loss if you hate the team. OR you pull for the undefeated and want to see how long they can continue to dominate. I am a redneck and NASACR was at its pinnacle when Dale Earnhardt, and Jeff Gordon were kicking tail. Love or hate them it was worth watching, now it is a group of guys who win and is boring. Everyone wants a dominate guy or team, love or hate them it makes for watchable games and sports. from ball sports to boxing to racing to swimming, the fans watch when their is a TOP DOG and the rest. Think about it, I know sports of all types peak in veiwership when you have a KING to knock off.
    Never been a huge NFL guy, but I don't recall so many Dallas haters until Aikman and Smith came along. Then..Jerry Jones or one of his marketing folks created the "America's Team" nickname. Then....there was Dallas..and everybody else. Seems like folks are indifferent now. Still hating Dallas but knowing their not the same as the yearly Playoff days. So you make a point I think about why fans love or hate. Bama is a little different I think. People that hate us the most seem to be in the SEC. I just wish fans could be as decent and fairminded as most of the players are towards other school's players. Look at them congratulating each other and giving their best regards after a hardfought match like Saturday night. Ever see fans line up and do that?? Eh! Apples and Oranges I know.

    First of all Jerry Jones had nothing to do with The Cowboys being called "America's team". The term actually came from a 1978 highlight film. Second most people didn't (don't) hate Dallas because they were winning, they hate (hated) them because Jerry Jones is an awful person and a jerk. Once someone else buys the Cowboys, people will go back to liking them again.

    Pretty sure it started before then. That is when it became a "thing", but I recall hearing similar terms being batted around before then. Tex Schramm was a genius when it came to promoting the Cowbags, and he was always looking for a new angle.

    Hated them long before Jerruh showed up. He just was another reason to continue hating them.

    I'll still hate 'em, after he leaves the stage. He just makes hating them more enjoyable.

    (BTW, it only took around 10 seconds, of listening to the car radio, to gather they lost on MNF. Almost made up for the hassle of dealing with a hacked credit card.)

    Believe me, my Friend, when I tell you that, growing up as a Redskins fan in the D.C. area, that the Cowboys were hated a long time before Aikman. George Allen, the Redskins Coach for many years, was known for not saying the name "Dallas Cowboys" without adding an expletive to the front of it. Those were the years leading up to the moniker of "America's Team" (which made me want to puke). And I would have to believe, that under Tom Landry (Who was a great Coach and Gentleman) and Roger Staubach's and Randy White's time, caused a large part of the Nation to not be too fond of the Cowboys.

    Imagine if it were 8 teams this year. Just a thought experiment ... there might have been a thought to throwing the LSU game. Possibly wouldn't have to play UGA, just beat MSU and AU. BAMA is in as 4,5, or 6 seed anyway without the extra wear and tear of the SEC championship game. They, of course, wouldn't have done it, but the thought would have been there. It would have been talked about by the media for sure. 8 teams would have had the chance to make this past weekend irrelevant - our 9th game of a 12 game season, mind you.

    The LSU QB is terrible. They beat UGA based on turnovers, so I don't think LSU is really that good. We still have yet to be tested. Will not be until UGA.
