Name another coach who has benefitted from the following luck:


Not only backs into the national championship game in 2003 after losing to a Ron Zook coached team by 3 touchdowns but gets to face a team that lost their conference championship game by 5 or 6 touchdowns

Star player for opposing team gets injured in the first quarter of 2009 championship game

Backs into 2011 championship game without winning own division championship

Clearly gets out played on both offense and defense in 2015 championship game but wins largely due to onsides kick

This is why I love the turds. No fanbase that lived through the 2013 season would have the AUdacity or shame to mention any program ever being lucky.

The difference is, we were able to capitalize on that luck and win it all. Harry needed the two flukiest plays in the history of the game just to make it to the SECCG. Then he needed Michigan State scoring a massive upset over Ohio State to back into the NC game.

Where he ran aubarn out to an 18-point lead then watched as Jeremy Pruitt dismantled his offense with surgical precision in the biggest NC choke of all-time.

Now tell me more about how lucky Bama is.

Notre Dame was undefeated and not a Top 25 team?

I love talking college football with the boogs.
