Bama vs. Auburn: A Lesson In Angst

Auburn's recent descent into madness got me thinking how similar in shape and form their shame spiral is to Bama's four-game slide last year.  Granted, AU's lackluster win against Tennessee interrupts what would be a perfectly symmetrical quartet of despair, but the similarities are eerie nonetheless.

Bama: Loses game with intense personal connection (Iron Bowl).  Fanbase enters full-blown existential crisis.  Alcohol cause of and solution to all of life's problems.
