And Alabama, like any good villain, is fully responsive, always learning, always improving, always finding new, even more terrifying ways to decimate his opponents. Over the past four seasons, Alabama has become more creative and dynamic on offense, averaging 488 yards per game in 2021. In 2015, the Tide averaged 427 yards per game. No surprise, the 2015 version of Alabama still won a national title.

Sure, teams sometimes beat Alabama, as we’ve seen this week. Since the 2010–11 season, Alabama has lost a total of 17 games. (For comparison, Michigan State, which is really good, lost 47 games in the same period.) I think I remember parts of all of them: in 2021, there was Rachel House Small, the wife of Texas A&M kicker Seth Small, holding Seth’s mother’s hand as her husband scored the winning field goal to defeat Alabama, then jumped onto the field to celebrate in a moment that became pandemonium.

And, in 2013, the Auburn University Marching Band’s exuberant, emotional and uplifting reaction to Auburn’s loss to Alabama on a last-second field goal came back for a touchdown in one of the most most incredible in the history of college football, the “Kick Six”. I watched this game on a laptop in London, and I can tell you what the room I was in was like and how blurry the internet connection was. That’s what happens when you’re in Alabama – your losses are so rare they become precious gems of football memorabilia.

It’s important to remember that the Tide went 7-6 in coach Nick Saban’s freshman year at Tuscaloosa in 2007, and before he arrived, Alabama football teams in the early 2000s were sometimes rather good and sometimes rather mediocre. The year I was born, 1987, Alabama went 7-5. It was another team, the Miami Hurricanes, that went 12-0 that year and won the national championship, part of an era for that team when they were so utterly superior to their opponents that players had plenty of opportunities to invent a new end zone. celebrations.

One day, Alabama will no longer be Alabama. Let’s enjoy this thing of beauty – or, more accurately, this unstoppable hellish beast from the great beyond – while we can.
