Monday Morning Iron Bowl Hangover

 

So kipling iffer did a great job on Saturday of putting Bama's season into perspective and talking many of us off the proverbial ledge (myself included). On this first real workday after the long holiday weekend I am curious to read your stories of how your co-workers/friends have reacted to the Bama loss, and how you are responding?

 

For me personally, I'm stationed in Texas, so I can't swing a dead tiger without hitting a Longhorn or A&M fan, so one fan base is pretty quiet and the other largely sympathetic. So far the general reaction from those I serve with has been "how did you guys let them off the hook". Fortunately, I haven't had to deal with any real smartass comments or vitriol like I did following the USCe loss. Although I did expect to get a lot of hazing, (deservedly so after losing to your in-state rival) for me it's been more akin to a funeral with endless expressions of condolence.

 

Sadly, it seems like the whole world can see the specter of a vacated national championship on the horizon, and everyone was looking to Bama to help avoid that possible train wreck for all of college football. In fact, I've had several non-Bama fans (longhorn, A&M, TCU obviously) here at work approach me and tell me about how they were openly pulling for Bama to win against the barn. Many of us saw this same sentiment on the RBR game threads last Friday as we had visitors from various SBN sites dropping in over the course of the game. Unfortunately, it seems everyone is lamenting the wasted opportunity we had on Friday night, everyone except the barn that is.
