Seems like we have a lot of success in years ending in a "1". I think that's fitting. We weren't much to look at in '51, from my understanding. 1991 was a bit of a turnaround year, and that's when we got the ball rolling for the success we had in 92-94. Let's not talk about 2001, except to say, I didn't think we'd win as many games as we did, with all the noise around the program. And, yeah, "O" is gonna have a lot of long suffering years ahead of him, against Alabama, after what happened in '19. His trip back to B-D this fall is going to be rough.A few other things to note:
August 6 is the start of fall camp, which is when I personally mark the start of football.
There are several championship teams being honored during the year:
1961 National Champs.
1971 SEC Champs -- Hard to believe it's 50 years since I was pacing back and forth in my room listening to John Forney on the radio broadcast of the Alabama-USC unveiling of the wishbone.
1981 SEC Champs -- Harder to believe it's been 40 years since I graduated.
2011 National Champs.
Take a look at when the 2011 National champs are being honored -- November 6 vs. LSU.
I think that timing is just random happenstance, don't you? What goes around comes around, O.
