    Would someone please explain this to me? Every headline says that Alabama has won the SECW. Not probably will win the SECW. How can that be when they still have to play Mississippi State and Auburn? Am I confused?

    Because we have two losses and everybody else has more. Bama could lose both games and still get into the SECCG because they won the head-to-head matchup.

    Haven't checked this out but even if they lose to MS and Aub they win on tiebreaker based on head to head competition.

    SO . . . WHAT? We beat Bama five straight years recently. We have five championship trophies in this decade to Bama's zero. The sky is not falling.

    Is there any limit to how many users you can ignore on this board?

    My ignore list is getting pretty long!

    New Guys. Hmmph! :geaux:

    What, a fair fight doesn't interest you?

    Now that is the definition of irony - a fan of a program that's spent more time on probation than off recently remarking about a fair fight. How would you know anything about fair?

    Enjoy your moment in the sun, you have a very talented team overall. Go beat the Gators and win the SEC. Win a national championship. But please don't ever say the words "fair fight" when you are a 'Bama fan. SMU did less cheating then Bama and they got the death penalty and still haven't recovered. Be happy you can be on TV and participate in bowls because of the stuff they haven't caught you at. :thumb:
