This is a crucial point, and one that is also overlooked by many. It isn't as if bama is simply steamrolling all of the competition, with no one else even having a realistic shot. Let's recap, shall we? In 2009, he had to have Jabba the god damn Hut block 2 FGs against Tenn, a CLEAR interception by PP improperly ruled, and the Horns' starting QB go down early in the NCG to win it all. Last year, he had to have a do-over to get in the NCG, despite beating, what, ONE ranked team all year. This year, he had to have a VERY questionable call go Stanford's way as well as a complete collapse by our defense in the waning moments to get in. He may be the best coach in the country, but he is for god damn sure the LUCKIEST. I keep waiting for his deal with the devil to expire, but apparently the devil is still alive & kicking in Birmingham. Who knows...maybe the cops will discover his kiddie porn dungeon during the offseason.
