Who would have known a night in New Orleans would have been so special for two programs. This was a day that Utah won the Natty (I say claim it because you were better than Florida). This was a night that Utah proved they were a P5. This was a night you smacked Alabama and their fans in the mouth and killed the old belief that “We’re Alabama” so we can just walk on the field and win. It is one of the most impressive opponents and biggest ass whippings I have ever seen.
Because of that we at Alabama had to figure out what happened. What that “what” was is that we didn’t completely buy in to “The Process” Saban talked about. Since that amazing ass kicking our teams have flipped. Since that night we’ve won 5 National Titles (6th opportunity tomorrow), 3 Heisman trophies, 33 first round draft picks, 67 All Americans, and every class recruited under Nick Saban has played (and if the win Monday will include won) in a National Title.
I’m not sure the fan base, admin and culture would be here without Utah.
