I know that Bama did not play very good at all yesterday. The coach said we didn't play with much passion and emotion and neither he, nor, I could understand that. Yet with the bad start, the defensive breakdowns, the lack of our usual power running game, and Auburn's early success, the team persevered. We took Auburn's best shot, emotionally, defensively, offensively, all on the road. The 'Barn pulled out all the stops, the '89 team on the field before the game, the trick plays, the 14 point lead, yet we continued on. This team didn't win because of better talent or even more depth, this team won because of character and heart. This is the stuff champions are made of. It reminded me of the way we played when Bear was coach or when Gene was coach and Barker would lead us on clutch drives to win games. Often we (Bama fans) complained about close games and not being flashy, and then we went through the Dubose through Shula years, and I am proud of this team for being a team and persevering and coming out on top. I have more confidence that we can beat Florida than I did a year ago, but no matter the outcome I am proud of this team.
