We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

1995 Nebraska went the entire season with ZERO holding calls.
Well coached teams tend to know how to hold without getting called for it. It's part of the game
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
The odds of any team going 0 for a season in holding calls without preferential treatment are astronomical.
Most dominant teams get preferential treatment after a few years.
Looks like another perfect day.
TIGER's been a regular for a while.
Has nothing to do with any players on the OL. It's really just because the SEC is afraid of us and we own this ish. It's really not fair for everyone else.
OK? Fact is that is happened. 1995.
And people that say Bama went 10 games without holding are wrong. We were called for holding 2 or 3 times...all were declined though.
I feel like you missed this part of his post: "The odds of any team going 0 for a season in holding calls WITHOUT PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT"
The refs helped out, there's no question about it.

The problem is that Auburn fans don't get that we aren't obsessing about Auburn. We're just making fun of them, but you aren't bright enough to know the difference. #Au-ful
Yeah...and that was a bullshit call IMO. Should have been 11 games.
barners can't understand the concept of 'multi tasking'...it's easy to enjoy and read about Bama, while making fun of that cesspool dumpster fire at auburn.
like right now i'm on a message board, watching the cowboys look like auburn, and looking for volvo convertibles online...
Wait, Alabama has anonymous fans? I thought that was only during the "lean" (i.e., Perkins, Curry, DuBose, Franchione, Price, Shula) years? I am pretty sure there hasn't been an "anonymous" bama fan currently since 2009. In fact, they go out of their way to let you know they are bama fans, even if the conversation does not touch college, college football, football in general, or anything remotely related to spuat or their illustrious football history.
I wish 247 had been around during the Shula years. That would have been something to behold.
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
You mean the same way we made fun of you during the Perkins, Curry, DuBose, Franchione, Price/Shula years? I at the lack of historical perspective shown by you bammers on tBB. If you all should have learned anything from your team's own history, it's that all college football success is cyclical. There are great years and there are lean years, even for the mighty crimson tahd. You act as though this unparalleled success you are vicariously reveling in through your band of 18-22 y/o's in red and white will somehow last forever. Your own "storied" history should have taught you otherwise.
Enjoy it while it lasts, because it will end. I sincerely hope you realize and understand that indisputable and inevitable eventuality.
Auburn doesn't have a football team... we shut it down after JAN 10, 2010.
Discipline is a word used AND heard prolly about 50 times EVERYDAY here n Tuscaloosa from all of our coaches. A holding call will send you to the track
Same thing happened with sCam. It is how the SEC rolls.................
i don't recall booger fans making fun of us during the perkins years...he was 2-2 against missy dye's father.
the difference between us and boogers is that when we suck, we strive to fix the problem or eliminate it. when auburn sucks you blame others and don't want to fix the problem. 'all in' 'family'. as long as that is the mentality of the cult, you're program will always be behind.
auburn has a victim, loser mentality. it's always someones fault, 'we're young'. Bama has 9 seniors, you don't hear us bitching. We've lost key players, you don't hear us bitching.
i'm thankful that chiznik won a title, it brought he and missy dye's father more time to do damage to the dumpster fire.
cptaumerica21 is one of the very few auburn fans that 'get it'.
Of course they do. They want to keep their jobs don't they?
Par for the course when you own college football.
You know good and damn well that you Aubs were just as vocal and obnoxious when you were beating us every year. Fear the Thumb and all that noise. So don't act like this is something new or something only we do...it's how rivalries work. Of course CFB is cyclical, everyone knows that. The difference is our cycles tend to bring more championships and last longer. That's why we're Alabama, are a blue blood, and own the SEC and its refs whereas Auburn is gay.
Anyways, quit being such whiny little f@gs.
You're just renting.
Signed a long lease this time though.
With yearly renewal requirements.
Odd terms for renewal.
The only term is Nick Saban still being the head coach. There is some fine print at the bottom that states that even if he is not the HC and Mark Richt is still at UGA, Derrick Dooley at Tennessee, Chizik at Auburn, and Miles at LSU that the lease is automatically renewed. Strange that there is no mention of South Carolina or Arkansas anywhere....or maybe it's not.
I have confidence that whenever Saban retires, we will basically be able to sign whoever we want as a coach. Could you imagine being a guy like Chris Peterson and see all the talent in the cupboard? Not saying we' ll hire Peterson but you get the point. Saban has this machine rolling. Gonna be a loooooong time before Bama cycles out of the top 1-10 picture.
Meh. Was basically having fun with UR.
A lot goes into a coaching search. Big names don't always equal success.
Yeah I was as well.
However, more times than not, in college they do.
