Well, Alabama is no longer undefeated. But we lost to a great team led by one of the all-time greats. How can you not admire Tim Tebow (even as you fervently wish he’d declare for the NFL draft and never play an SEC game again!)?
Looks like UA will wind up in the Sugar Bowl against Utah — not a bad consolation prize at all. In fact, despite the weather, I’d far rather spend a weekend in New Orleans than Miami. The food is just so much better.
Mmmm … beignets, blackened fish, bananas foster — and all done right. Not a bad consolation prize at all.
Still, it would have been great to win. Oh, well. At least we beat Auburn.
