Ingram wasn't the best back in the nation that year, hell he wasn't even the best back on his team. I'll give ya trent tho.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
I live amongst your fans in Mobile, AL so I hear it all the time.
Damn Strong Football Team
Fans in Mobile doesn't equate to "all Bama fans".

He was still a legit contender even if he had not won it.
Youre right about that D247. I'm just stirring you guys up a little bit lol. Im having major withdrawls with no football so any talk I can get on here is good talk. You guys are better than the Auburn fans though. At least you guys wear your colors win or loss. You hardly ever see an Auburn fan since the Utah State game in Mobile.
Not sure how that would make any sense. Are you saying they are so ashamed of winning a game? Or are they still mourning for their LSU friends for the Sanduskying bama gave you.
I'm just saying that Auburn fans came out in full force down here after the National Title win, and then after the Utah State game you don't see a tshirt on or a flag flying yet you see it with bama when they lose. I'm not trying to knock on Auburn fans and Im just speaking for the fanbase where I live but it is what it is. The Auburn fans down here act like they are ashamed when they lose and dont want people to know that they root for Auburn. This isnt my personal opinion either, its the facts from what I see. I think Auburn has a great program and a fine team year in and year out, but the fans down here are as I say they are.
I get your point, but I would have to disagree. I used to live there and still go there often to visit friends (and beer fest downtown) and I see plenty of people with their colors on. In fact, I was down there about a month and a half ago and ended up eating with 10 strangers who were on my buddies kickball team. 6 of them had Auburn gear on. It may just be the company you keep, but if you ask me, there is plenty of Auburn pride up there.
And I feel the same about your program and look forward to the week four matchup.
I think Bama would be fine in every game aside from LSU without McCarron. Their defense and running game would beat most teams if they just get a few key passes completed in key situations. Without AJ they have no chance against LSU. Maybe could stay in the game but not win unless LSU just shit the bed. So basically nothing different than what is expected anyway. 11-1 with a loss to LSU in BR. Nothing to be ashamed of at all.
I live in New Orleans and hear the LSU fans constantly talk about how much they support Sandusky. TIFWIW.
Injuries are more than likely a result of luck, not S&C. No amount of conditioning can stop a concussion, an awkward fall, a brutal hit, etc. It minimizes the risk in certain situations, but some teams are luckier than others. Some teams lose QB's while others lose kickers, etc.
If your OL is better, this is mitigated, of course, but Bama fans should pray to the gods that AJ doesn't go down, because it's gonna get ugly. Teams will load up and cram it in their cramhole, Lefleur.
The more first downs an offense produces, the more chances it takes away from the opposition. Bama's strategy is built on field position and taking what the defense gives you. You cannot line up Eddie Lacy and run him 3 times in a row and punt the football away and expect to win every game. Opposing offenses will have more chances to score, not to mention the increased risk of a turnover as a result of a green QB.
