    I feel the same. I have anxiety issues anyway, and get nervous that we will lose, instead of enjoying the wins/dynasty. I think Saban's winning streak/championship streak has contributed to that "perfectionist" trait of mine when it comes to BAMA football. My husband tells me to relax more but it's hard when I am so obsessed with BAMA.

    No me, my man - I love watching the game, love watching them play. But I'm not really anxious over the game as it literally has zero effect on my life. It's just something I enjoy, and if I ever don't I'll stop watching.

    Agreed. I just wrote something very similar in another thread. It's just a game and I do enjoy it still but it's not my life and I am no longer consumed by it as I once was.

    I will never stop watching, a life long Bama fan. Just need to sit back and enjoy the ride more than the destination. RTR

    Golding and Lupoi will spend rest of spring and summer fixing what was broken. I suspect Saban will bring extra coach in to help on defense side. I could tell that our defensive players did not take the preparation seriously. Mack did lot of talking on twitter this year that he couldn't back up on the field. Thompson, McKinney, Smith, Sustain looked lost last night. WE could not get off the field on 3rd downs.... The plays were there on both sides of the ball, we just did not execute well. I am okay with the loss, because this was something our players needed to learn from.
    Yep, sometimes you need a good beat down so you don't forget what it takes to stay on top.

    I get anxious during the game and stuff but once its over I'm fine. Its not life altering what a few 18-21 year old kids do on a football field. I enjoy wins and losses stink but thats about it. Once the game is over I move on lol.

    Living in Ga. it's tough to let it go. The UGA and Clemson fans won't let you. You're somewhat defined here by where you went to school, fair or not. At the club when we have golf tournaments, even the guys I don't know call me Bama and want to beat me more because of it. I love it, bring it...but it's literally a year round defense of my school that I love whether we win or lose...There's no place I'd rather defend!!!

    Re: Changes for next year

    I slept like a baby last night.

    As always, I stayed up a little later after watching any big game, win or lose.

    As I said in another thread, the big picture is we've played for a NC 7 out of the last 10 years and we've won 5. And it's not like we are going to be bad next year either.

    It's a new day God has given us. Rejoice in it!

    I think it might have been the dreaded Affluenza, which in my dictionary is described as thinking you will win just by showing up. Maybe we thought we had already beaten what we considered the bigger challenge, (Oklahoma), and weren't mentally prepared to play a very well prepared Clemson team.

    ESPN is already putting out their "way too early Top 25" for next year. Clemson is #1, BAMA is #2. They say they won't be surprised if it's round 5 next year.

    i think you probably see a lot more of that on the northside than i do on the southside (near the airport not in the southern burbs). all of the clemson and uga fans i know or see around are all pretty laid back.

    It's kinda like the Lakers and Celtics in the 80's.

    And this year the cycle had them being better in the trenches (like we were the year before) and if I'm a betting man, I bet we'll be ahead of them in that way next year.
