    I’m glad that the game gets top billing, but I gotta admit that I really like it when the IB is a night game. ESPN has 2 games a year they can have first dibs over CBS on, and it would have been great if ESPN would have exercised their rights on the IB. I don’t know if they could do it this early, though.

    I agree Julio, especially if Bama is the home team. A night game and its atmosphere favors the home team most…which is why I’m glad we’re on at 2:30 next year. We shouldn’t need much advantage, but that will help. 🙂

    Once again – there will be a lot of working people that will be denied the pleasure of watching it. Things at many workplaces are getting worst for most folks and the ‘given” that the day after Thanksgiving is a day off – is not true anymore for a lot of working people.

    Almba92………Please dude. You guys have been the kings of suckage for the last 10 years minus a couple. One good year and the smack talk is umbearable. I thought you guys were BAMA !!!!!! Show some of that turd class that comes with 19 national championships.

    Auburnisajoke, couldn’t have said it better myself. As mind boggling as it is for a school that had to share one over fifty years ago, I understand that it is even more mind boggling to imagine one school with twelve, the last one only back in 92 not like Aub’s half of one right after World War 2. heheheheehhe

    Ballplay, I do believe ALmba92 just smacked you down. Auburn was the king of suckage LAST YEAR. It isn’t looking good for this year either. Bama has turned the program around. Every school goes through hard times and bad coaches. You should know all about it being an Auburn fan. But while Bama was down, Auburn had a golden opportunity. Sure they beat some top ranked teams. But how many teams has Auburn beat while they were on top? Oh yeah, Auburn usually chokes when the pressure is on. Auburn wouldn’t even know how to deal with being ranked very high. They always do better as the underdog. That is the difference between Bama and Auburn football. When it counts the most, Bama has done more with their opportunities. Hence all the SEC championships and NCs.

    Did you just really post that arrogant Bullcrap ? Do you not remember Bamas LAST 2 FREEKIN GAMES ???!!!!!!!!!!!

    SEC championship on the line…………. Couldnt hang.

    Lets not forget the bowl game. You folded like a freekin lawn chair. To mighty Utah no less.

    Again , its not the 60s and Bahr is dead. You guys are as bad as Oklahoma when it comes to the choke.

    Be quick to point out that Auburn didnt go to a bowl. I know that . And I also know we sucked last year. Thats the difference between an Auburn fan and an Alabama fan. We arent on LSD.

    Yes Ballplay, keep telling yourself that. Bama choked so much they still own the SEC record for number of SEC Championships and National Championships. But you have to realize that in two short years Saban has brought Bama a long ways, and Auburn seems to be going in the wrong direction. Tubs left Auburn in worse shape than it was before he got there. Saban will leave Alabama in great shape. You keep on talking about the Florida game and the Utah game. They did end up number 1 and 2. At least they had a fighting chance. If they beat FLorida, Bama would not have been left out of a NC game, like Auburn was. Last time I looked, Oklahoma has more championships than Auburn will ever have too. I never thought Bama would do as well as they did last year, but I did tell you the Auburn game would be a beat down. And I was right.

    I know it is not the 60s. Why do you Auburn people keep bringing it up? Does it still sting? You are a fool if you can’t see that Saban has built Bama up in 3 short years. Heck it took Tubs 10 years and they never got the respect and glory that Bama has achieved before. Auburn won’t catch up with Bama in football championships in your lifetime. So you deal with it by saying ‘Bahr is dead’ and slamming Oklahoma. You are the typical Auburn crybaby.

    You brought up that Bama makes the most of opportunity…….I just pointed out that the arguement was flawed. You are the one using stats from “the golden age of Bama football”. You are the one that needs to enjoy that . Cause it will never happen again. Overall series record has the worlds greatest football tema a paltry 6 games ahead of Auburn. Wow, what dominance.

    Ballplay, it is not just the six games that Bama has over Aub, we hold every record on the field that is counted.You know, longest streak, most points scored, more sec’s more nc’s. It is dominance. Just accept it and you will feel better.

    Bamaman, Ballplay will never understand what a privilege it is to be a fan of the Crimson Tide. When you have the great traditions and great coaches that Bama has had, I guess you have to take all of the jealousy from the rival fan bases. It is not like they don’t have a reason to hate Bama or anything. All they have to look forward to is beating Bama. No NC talk or anything, just beat Bama. That is why it is very important to Auburn fans to have to show Bama up at every opportunity. Auburns legacy is to be the team that wants to be the biggest rival of the greatest program in the SEC by riding on Bamas coattails. That is why it means so much to them when Auburn wins. And if you can’t beat ’em, Bammer is cheating! (according to BamaHate and the similar brainwashed Auburn fans)
