I've even helped them by sharing the memes I've found that they haven't seen yet. It's all in good fun for us for the most part. One of the other Bama guys called in sick because he didn't want to hear it...lol No sense ducking it; might as well laugh, congratulate and move on. Thankfully we've had a great run and don't have to experience this often!
    Great attitude, and it keeps things from getting ugly at work. It also means that they will move on faster.

    Not to turn this into a "Dabo the next HC of Bama" discussion. But I listened to him say the above and it sure does sound like (along with other things he's said) a guy making a strategic attempt at not saying anything that could be perceived as negative or trash talk. Whereas, I've heard Dabo get a bit highschoolish when talking about victories against other programs.

    Re: Best responses to Clemson fans

    I’m actually proud of the way most Bama fans have handled this. There have been a few that make us look bad, but the way I look at it, our trophy case is full! I’m content with that! The best way to diffuse is to acknowledge they won, Congrats, and move on.

    No matter what anyone here thinks of him, he clearly still has a lot of love for Alabama.

    I am too! I don't even want to THINK about "the next coach of Alabama" yet....

    Without Alabama, y’all wouldn’t have any NC’s.

    I remember when they beat Auburn in a game a few years ago you could tell it made him so giddy he couldn't hardly contain himself. That's a Bama boy through and through.

    Re: Best responses to Clemson fans

    My response was Congratulations. Great game.
    We were outplayed and out coached this time.
    Dabo and Brent Venables had a heck of a game plan.
    'Hope we meet again this next season'.

    Re: Best responses to Clemson fans

    Really enjoyed the Clemson fans I ran into. Seemed for the most part to act like they belong there or had been there before.

    Re: Best responses to Clemson fans

    Told them Congrats and how we havenít gotten are butts whooped like that in over 15 years so thatís a first.

    Really I havenít had a problem with Clemson fans, itís been Auburn fans living vicariously through Clemson.
