The fact remains Alabama lost the last two games this season, failing to make it to a 3rd NC in a row. I'll live with that because it's stupid and greedy to think we should have been there.
Auburn on the other hand floundered for two years during our NC runs, shocked the nation to make it back to the BCSNCG....and failed on the big stage. They fell flat on their face, ended the SEC streak and have one NC instead of 2 to Bama's recent 3(we'll forget the other ones you'll whine about).
Yeah, I'm god damn proud actually, and can speak plenty due to recent overall success. Deal with it.
Proud to lose? Well, at least you'll have plenty to be proud of over the next decade!
