Remember the Rose Bowl, We'll Win Then...

Roll on to victory, hit your stride! You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!

It's been a long 17 years, but my Crimson Tide finally brought the national championship back home. We've been through a lot as Alabama fans in the past few years, so it was actually kind of surreal when we actually won the game. We had so many bad years I had started thinking that we would never win another one.

I just really hate that Colt McCoy got hurt. I've liked him since he was a freshman, and as bad as I wanted Alabama to beat him, I hate that he didn't even really get to play in the game. He's such a good quarterback, and now nobody will ever know how the game would have been if he played.

That being said, I did take exception to his statement that they "had" us when he got hurt. I don't think you can "have" another team on your first offensive drive of the game, especially when the team gives you the ball at their 30 yard line and you're forced to kick a field goal. (Yes Colt, you were in for the first three downs and were going to kick it whether you got hurt or not) And I could go on about all the "what ifs" for days so I won't get started on that here. Regardless, I have a lot of respect for Colt...I think he's really a stand-up guy and I hope he does really well in the pros.

I just love The University of Alabama so much. I know the players and coaches worked so hard to get where they are and I couldn't be more proud to be a Bama fan right now. I just wish I could've been there. At least we got to go to the SEC Championship game.

Oh, and go read this article by Andy Staples. It's about Alabama, but I think you'll appreciate it whether you're a Bama fan or not. I read it at work today and it made me cry. Right there at my desk. Just sayin'
