Mutually Assured Destruction

This has been a crazy year for both us and LSU.
I think we both fielded teams that were the best that either program had seen in a long long time (maybe ever, in LSU's case). And somehow, we managed to cost each other immortality.
Bama's D this year will go down as one of the best ever, sure, but the team as a whole will forever be remembered (by non-bama fans) as the team that won the national championship after losing their conference and division.
On the other side of the coin, not even a full week ago, cfb fans everywhere were arguing that, following a win in the BCSCG, this LSU team would have to be crowned as one of the best teams ever assembled. Despite all of their accomplishments, that coronation will never take place now. Monday night Bama made sure of that.
So here we are, two fan bases with absurdly good teams that will never fully get their due, thanks to a perfect storm of timing, affiliation, and bum luck. At least we have a certain shiny trophy to assuage the knowledge of what could have been.
Roll Tide.
