    First off, they’re the best dynasty the sport has seen. Now that that’s out of the way, why is there always an excuse with these guys?

    can you really be called the best dynasty ever and have lost games to auburn during that time?

    really makes you think

    Dabo had this problem with the 15-16 team. It's why he plays so many players now so this is no longer a problem.

    I will say you could tell from the very beginning that the Bama team and fans were worn out, I really would have liked to see that game with one more week of rest

    We had to play UGA and Oklahoma and y’all got to play Pitt and Notre Dame

    I would trade that situation in a heartbeat

    Should have played more players when you were up by 30 on teams.

    All that talent and some of it just sits and doesnt get a meaningful snap till they have to.

    No the Oklahoma team that beat Texas and the UGA team that we needed a come from behind back up qb performance to win we were emotionally spent and it was pretty obvious

    You had a month off...and then practically walked through half of the OU game.

    This is a bad argument.

    We did nothing close to walking through half the Oklahoma game. Anyone who watched the game will remember a very physical, chippy contest for pretty much the entire game.

    That being said we lost to the better team. But not controversial to say that UGA/Oklahoma is a far tougher road than Pitt/ND.

    Any nonpartisan CFB would agree...I think

    I’m just telling you what it felt like in the stadium, to an extent it felt that way against UGA as well until they missed that field goal that kept us in the game

    But like I said fans and teams seemed emotionally spent

    The fatigue from the UGA game 3 weeks prior was on full display during the early part of the Oklahoma game.

    Tua was worn out for having to play a full 2 quarters of football per game leading up to that UGA game.

    I think Bama fans are a little better than to buy into the whole SEC nonsense, especially when none of those SEC regular season games were a contest.

    LOL at mental fatigue winning every game by 30. Then getting beat in the trenches vs the #Georgia Bulldogs and claiming you were tired.

    Uga had to play in the sec championship last year while yall sat at home. Never heard them talk about mental fatigue.


    Take your L and reflect on what a great run yall had over the last decade.



    It's over now. Get used to it.

    But we got our ass beat, road to the game and mental fatigue aside. Our entire fanbase was definitely disappointed we didn't get ND when the selections came through, but what if'ing it doesn't matter.

    The game was a little closer than final score indicated.

    Let's add 4 points when Bama had False start at 1 yd line and the extra point. 31-21 at half. Then, let's say yall actually make the FG instead of fake. 31-24. Then, in 4th quarter, you leave Tua in and maybe still have some fight and score a TD. 45-31, because I'm giving Clemson the missed extra point. But then, Clemson would get an extra possession and also truly try to score, so I think 52-31 is probably a more true indicator, maybe 55-31. 28 points was a little deceiving.

    Bama was likely a better team overall than ND, even though the score indicated otherwise.

    In 2015, we were disappointed we didn't get Michigan State.

    In 2017, we were disappointed we got Alabama in the first round.



    This past year, we didn't really care bc we were going to destroy whomever we played.

    Clemson would have ran through Bama's schedule and would have been mentally ready to play the national championship. That's such a weak narrative.

    Not surprising that Alabama players and fans were shook when they trotted out their midget QB and then saw Trevor run out of the tunnel.

    Pitt stunk, but Notre Dame was a much better team than Oklahoma.

    Probably also better than Bama by the end of the season. I would say they were much more competitive with us.

    I give Kirby and UGA all the credit for our natty though. They smacked you guys in the mouth and you never recovered. I imagine it is going to be pretty ugly in Atlanta early next December.
