    Big A Bama is making the CFP irrelevant this season.

    If that wasn't clear to you before the weekend, after watching the Tide shutout No. 3 LSU 29-0 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, it should be now. Before Saturday night's latest reminder that Alabama is playing a different sport than every other college team in the country, there were generally two schools of thought. 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 visit a lot of message boards, I have for 15 years. for the last couple of years, the feeling is the same. To a sizeable portion of fan bases, ALABAMA has ruined college football. It’s the dominance that will not end. It’s stifling.

    Oh I get a kick out of those who make the game plan. IF we can stop them running and pressure the QB and if they fumble and if we take care of the ball and if we can keep them in third and long and etc., etc. In other words IF we play perfect and they don't show up then I like our chances.

    Unless we slip up or Tua gets injured, the intrigue is indeed gone. The old BCS system would be enough.

    Those who are pushing an 8-team playoff are just hoping for entertainment and an extension of the season.

    I can understand that. When other teams (FSU, NEB, OK, USC) had dominated, and Bama was in their down cycles, I was tiring of those teams winning so much. But their dominance lasted only 3, or 4, years. Bama has been on a tear for around a decade. I can understand their angst. That being said, I am a BAMA FAN, and I wouldn't trade this run for anything. So...let the angst continue! It will end...someday...but, as long as CNS still wants to Coach...I like Bama's chances.

    ROLL TIDE!

    Think of Alabama as first-class and Clemson as business-class while everybody else is packed in economy, clawing for a bag of peanuts.

    Such a special time. We've had two great runs since I've been watching college football.

    Still some work to do since we're not at the top of all time wins yet.

    See, I don't. I enjoyed watching all of those teams play. I marveled at their excellence. And as a kid, I always wondered why they couldn't keep their runs going.

    I've enjoyed watching the Patriots dominate. The Cowboys in the 90s. The Chicago Bulls with Jordan. I don't follow the NBA anymore so I can't comment on the current Warriors run.

    I guess I just enjoy excellence. It's doubly satisfying now because I'm watching my favorite team. I hope it never ends.

    Watching an excellent team dominate is good. It gives that teams fans a lot to cheer for and gives all others someone to hate. That is what sports is all about. Waiting to see someone step it up and challenge the champ. No matter the sport, ball sports racing what have you. You need a villian, and that is usually the one dominating the others. 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.

    I too agree it won't last 4/ever. One day when CNS decides to give up coaching, then we will be brought back down to even playing field with everybody else but until then I am going to enjoy this run of dominance.
