    ....just made one of the worst coaching decisions I have witnessed in a long a time. Going for a 56 yard field goal with a frosh kicker leads to unreal return and a loss.

    Totally unlike the conservative Saban to do as such.

    Saban was totally outcoached by Gus Malzahn. Malzahn was intellectually superior to throughout this game compared to Nick Saban.

    Nick Saban just played himself out of a national championship. Dynasty over.

    Gus Malzahn is doing an amazing job.

    I know this will be moved, but give this a chance to marinate around here for a bit. I still am hurt from Saban leaving the Fins at the alter.

    That was the dumber decision in my opinion. Could've been up two scores with five minutes left.

    While feeling bad for my buddy Namor and also for Slimm Jr, nevertheless I was delighted with the exclamation mark slapped on the actual ending. :up:

    (yeah, I hold a grudge, but even now, considering Ricky returned, I consider Martin now up there with Satan as the Fin's two biggest ***** quitters.)

    Why would Nick even think about Texas? He still has a chance to eclipse Bear Bryant which IMO is a bigger ego stroke for Nick.

    Somehow, I don't think Mrs Saban would like Austin

    p.s. I'd rather see Stanford in the title game than the nuts from Columbus.

    p.s.s. Almost as great of a game as the 2009 Sugar Bowl

    Had he stayed we'd be worse, do I guess im one of the one's that doesn't care that he moved on.. Even if what we have now is bad.. gotta keep moving until we find it. Roadblocks only hurt us.

    The bad decision he made was going for it on 4th and 1 on the 12, when his kicker missed 2 already. Then made him kick a 44 yarder that was blocked. His confidence was completely shot.

    I didn't mind the 56 yarder, the guy nearly made it, the ST just has to be more aware that you can't give up a return. They were barely moving after the kick was made.

    Guy is a legendary college coach not made for the NFL. They have only lost a couple of games over the past couple years and usually it involves the kickers losing their minds and just going off the wall ape **** bad.

    I was more so looking forward to a FSU-bama championship, now FSU will roll and it will be boring. Wanted to see heisman QBs battle against tough D's with good running games and excellent athletes.

    WV probably just shot himself.

    Stanford has two loses and Jon Martin is now a groupie for them. Nope. They can go to the Holiday Bowl.

    Malzahn is intellectually superior to his coaching competition. I LOVE THAT.

    I experienced the Ray Allen shot in game 6, but I'm still waiting for that magical moment from the Canes and/or Dolphins. I miss watching relevant good football.

    I'm fully aware of Stanford's losses. I loathe the cardinal but think more of them than Ohio's best football team.

    Stanford will knock Az St around & then have a few weeks to prepare for their Rose Bowl victory over osu.

    Gotcha. Stanford is not going to get a chance at Urb...Urb is going to the play in the same stadium, just a few days later against FSU.

    Saban is a jackass, a liar, and a loser. The less I hear about him the better.

    With all due respect and sympathy to Namor, a real class act of a poster,

    I'm grinning from ear to ear right now. **** Nick Saban.

    I feel really bad for Saban because I like and respect him so much. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The loss couldn't happen to a bigger bag of garbage. I was thrilled to see him lose in a major heartbreaking way. Screw him forever for bull****ting the Dolphins and being such a scank!

    Only hope we have left is that the sorry *** TPD gets off their asses and charges Jameis Winston.

    ****ing hate what happened tonight. Alabama was the only team capable of beating Florida State. Ohio State is dog ****. Florida State will pound those clowns.

    Michigan State needs to knock off Ohio State so that Auburn can slide in there. Auburn's defense is awful but they have some firepower to work with.

    What do you guys think about the Michigan going for two point to beat Ohio state rather than go for the tie with a chance for an overtime win? I think this decision would be talk about for a very long time to come. Going for the two to me was a gamble but you have to have balls to win huge game.

    I thought it was right call. Michigan had no chance to stop the Ohio State run game.

    He had the right idea to go for two, but that play call was very bland.

    Didn't help that Gardner did his best Chad Henne and stared down his receiver before throwing.

    While I was rooting for Auburn, and though their coach did well, I have a tough time saying he "outcoached" Saban. Kind of tough for Saban to do anything to coach those chokes by the field goal kicker. And then going for it on 4th down instead of kicking the FG? Well if his kicker wasn't choking all over the place, he might have gone for the FG.

    Not a Alabama or Saban fan, but tough to be unbiased and say he got "outcoached". It was a great game top to bottom from both sides.

    I loved the conclusion of that game! The fourth quarter of that game was incredible!!!

    I LOVE watching Saban lose. Totally un-like him to make that play call at the end...

    What a terrific play call on Auburn's last TD.

    I don't think I've said that all season watching the Dolphins.

    I'm still pissed at him for being a ****ing LIAR and a QUITTER (and the Brees/Culpepper thing happened under his watch should've gotten better doctors). I will always have an undying hatred for that man and I continue to wish failure upon him from a strictly football standpoint.

    He sold out the Fins like no other. Things were not that bad he had to leave. Wayne would have done anything for him. Saban could coach a D and his teams were not dumb typically. However, he could not take the heat. Saban leaving the Fins is one of the reasons I am so proud of the 2008 team led by Pennington.

    Wowww fellas. What happened with Saban and the Dolphins was 7 years ago, at some point you guys have to let that go. What happened then sucked because he straight lied to everybody, but that was then, this is now. Lets leave this piece of the past in the past ok.

    Gardner had a bad ankle; I would have kept him in the pocket with the 2 Big TE's being the options.

    The stack idea was good but throwing to the shorter WR again was not.

    Welllllllllllllll, he hasn't been charged and right now it's just a he said she said. If they had enough to charge him they would. Right now he has two witnesses that say it was consensual. She went to the ER on the night the claim was made. If the exam shows injuries consistant with forced sex then he should and will be charged. If not it will be a he said she said and chances are he wont be charged.
