Alabama and Bowl Games

After last Friday's Sugar Bowl, our Bowl record is now 31-22-3.  Frankly put, our record in Bowl games is an area in our tradition and history that is sadly lacking.  Yes, we hold the records for most Bowl games played(56) and most Bowl games won(31), but USC is now only 1 game behind us in wins thanks to their win in the Rose Bowl.  Texas is still well behind us in Bowl games played at 48.  This link is through 2006, so I added the next 2 years to it.

I've been thinking about this and wondering why we perform so poorly in Bowl games.  Even the greatest coach to ever coach the game was only 12-10-2 in Bowl games at Alabama.  Coach Bryant had a run from 1967 to 1974 where we lost(7) every Bowl game except 1970 when we tied with Oklahoma 24-24.  Now THAT is embarrassing.

Coach Saban is 1-1 in Bowl games at BAMA.  I hope he can turn the Tide more toward winning in the post season than what we have done in the past.  If anyone can, I believe he is the man.

 

Proud of my team, always wear my gear, and my greeting is ROLL TIDE!!!
