    This one has bothered me more than any game I can remember. At least after the kick 6 you figured it was a fluke.

    Iím legit worried to face Clemson again.
    You know the regular eeyores arenít even being this bad. I canít tell if you are just having the biggest chicken little episode known to man or you are just trying to get a response. Give it a rest.


    They kicked our butts, it happens. It just hasnít happened to us in a long time. The game couldíve easily been the epic shootout had we called better plays in the red zone. Clemson is going to be the obstacle going forward, but we are an obstacle for them as well.

    Uh...................I'm pretty sure it did.

    As for "paradigm shift"...................if it is what is needed to kick things up a gear, then fine. Good thing CNS is the coach in charge of making that shift.

    CNS saw what was wrong with Jalen, against elite teams. He recruited Tua.

    Dumbo saw that Bryant wasn't going to cut it, against us. He recruited Goldilocks.

    (Clemson got away with playing Goldilocks early on, with their schedule. CNS had a hard time making the switch, until it was almost a mutiny.)

    CNS will counter. He hates losing.

    The wait will kill some of us. Some of us probably don't want to believe it will happen. Time will tell who gets their wish.

    It just did, and has been close to happening several times in the past 10 years.

    Jimmy Johnson got killed by teams at Miami, what about Spurrier vs Nebraska, or dare I say it CPB. All runs eventually run into a butt kicking when someone comes in with equal talent and more motivation. Itís a miracle and a testament to CNSís greatness that it took over a decade for it to happen to him but like I said it shouldíve happened a few times in that time period.

    Not to pile on, but denial won't help. It did happen.

    It happened to the two best coaches of all time, IMHO.

    Coaches Saban and Bryant both suffered this type of devastating loss.

    Coach Bryant went on to win two or three more titles afterward (I forget because I was a toddler).

    Coach Saban isn't going to lie down and die.

    The fans shouldn't either.

    Since Saban has been here, we have either played the national champion or won it every year with the exception of 2013. That is remarkable, and the fact that we haven't had one really embarrassing loss (anything occurring in 2007 aside) until last night is equally remarkable when you consider the elite level of opponents we have faced in that time.

    Look, we lost bad, but that game was an anomaly more than a changing of the guard. Yes, Clemson deserves all the credit for what they did, but we really didn't just lay a complete dud. Clemson had everything go their way and we had nothing go ours, almost comically. Eventually, a game like this was going to happen. It was inevitable.

    I understand it happened. The point is that it never has before. Saban has never lost by more than 14. This is unprecedented for Saban at Alabama.

    Yes, this loss was without precedent.

    The last time a Saban coached team lost by 14 it went to the first CFP the next year. He then went on to coach the next four teams to the championship game, winning in two of those.

    The last 14 point loss before that was in 2010 and his teams won the next two BCS championships after three losses that season.

    After 2010, coach this or that was going to outlast him and win more. Same thing in 2013 and 2014, then again in 2016.

    Frankly, at this point that schtick is getting worn out and old.

    For the love of Pete, the man has won SIX titles, five at Alabama over 10 years. He came up just shy of outright winning it or getting the opportunity three more times. Once, lost it on a last second pick play. Twice would likely have won it if one or two plays go the other way and they actually get in the championship game.

    So excuse me if I dismiss the hyperbole as just that.

    IMHO, two things are likely to make Saban retire other than health/family:

    1. He is satisfied with his accomplishments and has no desire to continue his work or

    2. He sees that he is no longer able to adapt and so can't give his players a fair opportunity to succeed with him at the helm.

    I believe he has the awareness to see when either scenario takes place or Terry will open his eyes to it when the time is right.

    I don't believe that time has come. That tells me he still has the drive and the ability to adapt.

    And until that changes the rest of the college football world is going to have to learn to cope with his and Alabama's success.

    One horrible loss doesn't change that.

    What a great time to be an Alabama fan. Great season and more to come. Once again everyone else loves to see Alabama get beat. Let's not forget this is just a bump in the road. Not time to scream the sky's falling.

    Think back 10 years ago. We are still ALABAMA!

    Re: I don't even feel bad

    I know that sometimes Bama fans get a bad rap, but the TN, GA, AUB, UCF, ect. crybabies need to visit Tide fans to learn how real football fans deal with defeat. No blaming the refs, Clemson didn't cheat, it wasn't the weather we just got outplayed by a better team that night. We might play next Saturday and Bama wins by 30, we ran up against a perfect storm. Congrats to Clemson on a great game.
