Saban's Competitive Teams

Hello all, I know talking losses is often difficult and can bring bad memories flooding back...however, today I did just that and thought about some of those gut-wrenching and upsetting losses. When I went back to the results from Saban's first game at UA until now, I realized that there might not be another college football team that has been close/competitive in almost every loss. The only two games I think we were simply outmatched were Utah in 2008 and USCe in 2010. Possibly OU, but if AJ had simply taken the sack and not fumbled at the end of the game, it's a 7pt. loss. I only looked at UA's, but it would be interesting to see the number of points that other teams have lost by in D-I. I think it shows how competitive Saban's teams have been throughout his tenure. Roll Tide! 2007: UGA -3 (OT), FSU -7, LSU -7, MSU -5, LaMonroe -7 / 2008: UF -11, Utah -14 / 2009: No Losses / 2010: USCe -14, LSU -3, F AU -1 / 2011: LSU -3 (OT) / 2012: TAMU -5 / 2013: F AU -6, OU -14 / Total: 100 points
