Can I get a Roll Tide?! I love those Alabama boys. (Even if AJ does have an Auburn girlfriend and a horrible chest tattoo) It's a great day to be from Bama. Headlines read "Alabama is now a dynasty. The best we've ever seen. The best there's ever been."
The front page of the Birmingham News today.
I am sad for Notre Dame... Their players and fans. I can't imagine how hard it must be to work towards something for months and months and then not get it. I think they could have played better, but I also don't think there isn't much that can prepare you to play a team like Alabama.
Just a few things I want to point out...
-Alabama became the third team to win three national titles in four seasons since polls started being used to crown champions in 1936, and the first since Nebraska from 1994-97.
-Tide coach Nick Saban now has won four national championships. Only Alabama's Paul "Bear" Bryant, with six, has more.
-Alabama had 529 yards. The Irish defense came in allowing 286 per game. WHAT?!? Holy offense!
-It was 28-0 before halftime against a team that allowed more than 20 points just once all season. ( I really don't think they had any idea who they were facing)
And my favorite quotes of the night...
To win it again Monday was special. To do it against Notre Dame, Alabama’s historical nemesis, was memorable.
To leave no doubt on the scoreboard leaves no doubt in the debate.
This was history. This is a dynasty.
The best we’ve ever seen. The best there’s ever been.
Barret Jones talking about coach: “He’s awesome,” Jones said. “A lot of people see him as this hard, slave-driver kind of guy, but man, he loves his players, and we love him. He demands the best from us, and that’s why we love him.”
"They could’ve saddled up the Four Horsemen on Secretariat. Brought back the Gipper with an experimental injection of stem cells. Flown Touchdown Jesus in on the blimp and put Rudy in the game from the start. It wouldn’t have mattered."
Okay. That's all I'm going to say about it. Well, Roll Tide!
Now I'm done!
Happy Tuesday, Y'all!
