Getting over the iron bowl has taken a few days. For you Tide haters that read the blog, here's my reaction.
Oh, the iron bowl hurt. It hurt bad. I was so hoping to get three national titles in a row. I felt like I didn't care what next year brought, but to get three in a row would have been so amazing. I know that dream is not exactly dead just yet. After all, the two teams we needed to lose last year in an upset to bring us to the BCS championship did in fact lose. Likely? No. Possible? You bet! Anything is possible. Go Michigan State and Go Duke! I'm going to be cheering for you guys this weekend!
The worst part was the ups and downs. The word I couldn't get out of my head was "bobble". It's not fair to single out one guy for the whole loss...a lot of mistakes were made by both teams, really; but, when Foster finally got the ball over the goal post the "bobble" cost us the game. False start. Can you believe that? It wasn't the only stupid senseless false start, it was just the one that counted the most. If not for the bobble our team would have been three points ahead when the time ran out. Then, not covering the player after the final kick? That was just crazy. Don't they know there's a guy back there? Had the game gone into overtime I still think BAMA would have had a chance to pull it out.
