    I was watching the Wake Forest - NC State game Thursday. The announcers mentioned that NC State has never had a 10 win season. I know they are not a football power, but you would think they would have at least one.

There is a reason this program is considered one of the best of all time. I always hoped Nick would be great for Bama, but 5 titles in last 9 years, soon to be 11 straight 10 win seasons, I mean really, did any of us dream it would be this great? Enjoy the ride guys and gals, this is truly an EPIC run.

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.

    There's a difference between "easy to get" and "impressive."

    Boise State had seven straight ten-win seasons.
    During that same time frame, Florida had a total of four.

    Anyone think that this makes Boise State more impressive than Florida?

    I'm in no way knocking it, I'm saying "context." TWELVE, which it appears we will get, is another ballgame entirely. ELEVEN is even substantially better than ten, although it's only one game.

    That 2010 will always leave a belated bitter aftertaste in that we should have taken care of business by beating Auburn.

Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...the REC."

    I really didnít feel like South Carolina or LSU was better either. The fact that Alabama didnít repeat that year still blows my mind.

    I just don't think losing nearly 1/3 of your games (in those instances) is worth talking about in football (MLB, yes).

    However, 12-win seasons are something else, particularly since to do that you have to win enough important ones to play extra ones.


    The NFL has gotten hung up on "thousand yard rushers" for years. That meant something in a 10-game schedule. I don't consider averaging 62.5 yards per game rushing in an era with weeks off to be a boastworthy accomplishment, either.
    I agree with the NFL part for 1000 yard rushing. However even in 16 game seasons, I still consider it impressive to be a perennial 10 win franchise because of how hard it is.

    I canít believe a team like Auburn canít get back to back 10 win seasons. I know theyíve done it once but they have had good enough teams to get it done. Compared to the other SEC teams, Alabama has made it look easy.

    I can recall when they made it such a big deal of Nebraska having more 9-win season than anyone else. Nebraska has 52 and Bama has 51. Tom Osborne won 9+ in his 25 years. From 1969-2001 they won 9+ win seasons.

    Alabama leads as of this week with 39 10+ win seasons and Oklahoma has 38 so far. That is subject to change when they win once more.

    Oklahoma leads all time in 11+ wins so far with 24 to Alabamaís 21. Both of which will change because they will both keep winning.

    Alabama leads all time with 12+ wins with a total of 11 so far compared to Oklahoma being the closest with 7. USC has 6.

    Alabama leads with all time with 13+ wins with a total of 6 with Nebraska and Florida tied at 3.

    Alabama also leads with 14+ wins with a total of 3 so far. Clemson and Ohio State both have 2. Florida State, Auburn, and Minnesota have 1.

    It will be truly special if Alabama can win 15 games this season.
