Doesn't mean I agree with it. But it's not crazy talk.
    Yeah I think we'd have a better claim to it, but I'm not sure I would have called us "best ever" either. It's a hefty claim. But, they won. To the victors go the spoils.

    That's where I'm at with it. Who am I, a fan of the team they curb stomped to death in front of god and errbody, to tell them how to celebrate? LOL! Beat'em and we're not even having this conversation.

    Or in the words of Steve Spurrier when he was getting criticism for running up the score on bad teams "If you don't like us scoring then stop us."

    Best Alabama offense ever, but the defense had too many faults and the special teams was a disaster. No one with two brain cells to rub together was talking about last year's Alabama team as the bet ever. The 2016 team that got beat by Clemson had a legitimate claim until the loss, but not last year's team.

    Idk if you looked at it from the standpoint of margin of victory then that Alabama team was headed toward having an argument.

    Clemson smashed an undefeated Alabama and Notre Dame team. I don't think Clemson's team was the best ever but they at least have a claim to being one of the best teams in recent history.

    Re: Clemson adds a marker to their "graveyard"

    Thanks for the comments. This was my first "thread starter." I saw the article and thought I would share. I'm sure many teams do something similar for their own fan bases. I just want revenge on this team. I for one am glad we don't have the only target on our backs for a change. I think we will be hungry this fall. I just hope we stay healthy.

    Believe it if you wish, but no one here was talking about best ever, even before the Clemson game. Knowledgeable Alabama fans saw the gaping holes which were only masked by an incredible offense.

    I agree, but Bama fans aren't the ones with the national voice. The talking heads at ESPN are and I know first hand I heard it off and on all year, even leading up to the Clemson game, about this Bama team being the best ever.

    They have done it for decades. I taught there briefly and am surrounded by their fans now, so believe me when I say that they are very passionate about their school. I never act boastfully about Alabama, so I didn't get a lot of abuse when they beat us, but I will still say it was awfully hard coming to work the next day/weeks. I do hope that our players see this tombstone and are motivated by it.

    The good thing about it is, time has its way of swallowing up events and constantly putting them deeper and deeper into history and the world moves onto something else. LOL!

    You really should type in best team ever, Greatest team of all time, or something of the sort in the search box and you’ll see many posters here proclaiming that last years team was better than Nebraska 95 and Miami 01. So either you are calling 80-90% of the posters on here not knowledgeable or you just weren’t listening closely to the Alabama chatter last year

    Bama fans were Tua drunk last year and the majority of them believed we were the GOAT.

    Re: Clemson adds a marker to their "graveyard"

    I like Clemson and I like Dabo. They're my 2nd favorite team. There I said it.

    This doesn't bother me a bit. I just look forward to a continuation of the rivalry. Clash of the Titans.
