I just watched the entire Arky game, and it was like a graduation ceremony for the Tigers. We finally put together a whole game, offense, defense, and for 4 quarters, against good competition. Before the season there was a thread about what we predicted the record to be. I said I'd be thrilled with 10-1, expected 9-2, and could still be happy with 8-3. I am very satisfied with 9-2. We lost a lot of guys to the NFL last year. We had a young team. We had no proven QB. The team seemed to work hard and get better in jerks and fits as the season progressed. The defense was stout all year. My hats off to Coach Saban and his staff. I bet they had to work hard to keep the team on an even keel and deal with many more unusual situations than last year. The team lacked a leader on offense, but enjoyed Sr. leadership on defense. All in all, I am a happy camper. This year wasn't our year. Next year will be very interesting. We still need leaders to emerge on offense. We will lose a lot on defense, so we will need new leaders to emerge there. The talent is there. I anxiously await national signing day, the spring game, and look forward to seeing our young players develop, mature, and sieze the opportunity awaiting them. Gooooooooooooooo TTTTTTIIIIIIGGGGGEEEEERRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!
