42 years between NCG losses

14 posts in this topic

Prior to this past season Bama last lost a NCG game in 1974. #2 ranked at 11-0, lost to ND in the Orange Bowl and would have, at 12-0 with a win over ND, unquestionably finished ahead of 11-0 Oklahoma which was on Bowl Probation. Won SEVEN straight after that in the '78, '79, '92, '09, '11, '12, and '15 seasons.

Even more impressive is that Ole Miss has NEVER lost a national championship game. We've won every one we played in!!!

Honest to God, I find it so strange that Bama fans need constant self validation.

apparently you're new to sports boards

see, when you find a cool fact about your school, you can go to a "sports discussion board", find the forum for you particular team, and post that fact to solicit and engage in conversation with other like minded fans

its a pretty interesting concept, you should try it

Its a valid/impressive stat becaue y'all played in several between then.  If you had only been to two, both 42 years apart, it would be completely meaningless. Or even if there was one W sprinkled in between there.

 

Longest stretch we had between title losses was 1975 - 97.  Also lost in 66 and 2014.  The other 8 title games we were in we won :10_wink:

That's cool.

We've went like, 6 months, without a Tennessee player raping someone.

So we've got that going for us, which is nice.

The Tide is red

The Cats are blue

Both are #1

And ALWAYS will be TOO!

I think it was a cryptic way of saying that you are the worst.
