Gracious in defeat

Need some cheering up?  Say hi to Fred from Alabama.

At least it took several years for Gator fans to sound like we used to once upon a time.  Fred’s leaped across that threshold in record time.

    Wow. Wait till Saban leaves. That fan base will need to be commited as a whole. Like old school insane asylum committed with straight jackets, padded rooms, and electroshock therapy just to cope.

    Lol at Finebaums, “Fred, do you live by yourself or do you have family members that look after you…”

      Let me get this straight, this guy from alabamia is stating that those missed tackles, blocked field goal, pi penalties, inability to gain more than 30 -60-100 yards in total rushing and that the bammer qb had some difficult moments while on that Indy turf plus, plus this guy is saying that the alabamia coaching staff wasn’t guilty of some negligence…well, then pawn that autograph picture of the “Bear” and dump his sisters 3rd cuzin in the dairy queen parking lot, that sumbitch may be onto something…

        If you’ve known Bama fans before in your life, you know that they never needed Paul Finebaum to sound and act crazy. Paul may actually give some of them a psychological outlet that society needs. Not that I ever listen to the show, but I’m aware of what it is.

      Well, to Fred’s credick he weighs a buck twenty-five with a soaking wet pack of Marlboro Lights rolled up in his sleeve and his ol lady was terminated as the mascot of the red elephants for excessive weight and undue flatulence. He was holding his own until Mona slipped in that puppy puke and crashed on his ass and drove him through the replacement plywood floor.

    • They always play the best of the week on Fridays. Anyway, on Tuesday Bama superfan Legend got in an argument with a UGA fan who kept laughing and barking at him. Finebaum rarely disappoints.

        That Legend guy might have killed himself after this week. It’s been gold and Finebaum has been roasting that guy daily. Most of their regular Gump asshats slunk back to their trailers and didn’t call in the day after the championship (Much like archmartyr here – where is the crow eating he promised?). Then guys like Fred and Legend just jumped from “You’ll never beat us” to “Not a real championship” real quick.

    I have a close friend who is a Bama fan but was too young to remember Stallings but came of age in the Dubose, Fran, Shula era. He’s obnoxious but has said as far back as 2011 or so that Saban would create a kind of fan that was even worse than the ones that still worshipped Bear and the previous glory days.
    I don’t know where Fred fits in as far as demographics but this kind of stuff makes me happier for what happened Monday and makes me look forward to the next ten years as a Georgia fan. Go Dawgs!

      I think it’s a combination of Saban’s success and (like a lot of negative aspects of modern society) the ubiquity of social media. Saban’s dominance began at almost exactly the same time that Facebook and Twitter became omni-present. In the old days (you know, before 2007), the opinions of fans would have largely been contained within the boundaries of their group of friends. Now everyone with a dumbass opinion can share it with the world.

  11. I think I met this Fred guy over a month ago near Trussville, AL…he told me then that he had just drunk a lava lamp and had sex with a German Shepherd.

    Now hearing he can’t accept the outcome of the National Championship, I think it maybe time he seeks help.

    First, Fred is no alumnus. May have been on campus a few times when his bosses daughter was getting her Associates Degree. He knows no one with ties to the program. Neighbors haven’t spoken to him since he defended Harvey Updyke. He goes to Mobile and calls it “the beach”. Wants to go to Nashville but since he has no passport, he’s not sure how to get there. Speaking of yankees, doesn’t really trust anybody from Huntsville. You should hear him try to pronounce Opelika (won’t, too close to Auburn). Speaking of Pat Dye, thinks Dye lied about recruiting Bo. And since Bo declined Bear’s offer he shouldn’t be in any record book because Auburn isn’t really a school. He knows this because his first love lived in a pasture for two years and became a sweater, not a nurse.

    Great late post! I think we all know tide fans that sound just like this. I can’t wait to go work in AL again, just like I wore my G gear in Gainesville 2000-present. FTMF except Saban was truly sincere post game, I have to believe that there is a respect there. How could there not be, +10 year on staff through 3 programs? Two peas in a pod as far as I can see.

    The next 5 years are going to be awfully fun/competitive unless Monken leaves. That scares me more than a little…….

      The Dawgs will be fine, Riggermon. Kirby has made Georgia THE destination for coaches and players. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kirby brought in an upgrayedd at O coordinator. Two D’s for a double dose of Dawgs kicking ass.

        Saban showed real class. He is the GOAT times are changing fast his legacy is secure. No doubt he was happy to see Kirby reach the summit. As his career nears the end he knows Kirby has taken his system the process will now live on for years to come. Kirby is the closest thing to Saban in the business. No way that coach Saban can’t help but smile seeing Kirby carry the mantle going forward when that time comes sooner than Bamers expect.

        I’m the owner so it’s OK if I’m late or back in Florida again and yes I do support the enemy both of my ME’s are GT grads. Saban showed class in defeat. I do admire that from someone driven to never lose. It’s OK to be a graceful winner too.

    This line of thought runs deep. Have a Bama friend who congratulated me, then said it’s hard to win with freshman receivers. I was gracious in letting him know our last the TDs were by freshman.

    I think what happened in the SEC CG was Bama playing their absolute best while the obviously Dawgs didn’t play very well and made some pretty big mistakes. This past Monday, the Dawgs still didn’t play their absolute best. Especially early in the game. But when it counted the most in crunch time during the last 7+ minutes of the 4th quarter, the Dawgs made play after play after play on both sides of the ball. Saban even said we whipped their butts in the 4th quarter. It wasn’t a perfect 4th quarter for the Dawgs but it was close (minus the incomplete pass that was somehow a fumble). Meanwhile, Bama played tough until the very end but didn’t make every single play like they did a month ago. Losing Williams definitely hurt them and I hated seeing him taken out of the game due to injury. But unfortunately, injuries are part of the game, just like coaching, recruiting, and the forward pass. If Fred doesn’t know that then he’s just ignorant and needs to take one of their NC trophies to Texas and hand it to Colt McCoy. I bet the Dawgs offense would have been better if Pickens doesn’t get injured at the beginning of the year. We all got to see what he can do after a few months of recovery and a few weeks of practice. He might have been the best receiver on the field if he was healthy all year even if Williams and Metchie (?) were also playing. Sometimes players get hurt but, I’ve yet to see a game canceled or not count because of it.

    And I haven’t thought of it until see a few of the comments made by others on here earlier. Bama is going to go insane after Saban is gone and he’s replaced by a coach who didn’t make a deal with the devil. Saban is the all time best college coach so, it really doesn’t matter who comes in after him. The level of dominance they’ve enjoyed under him is ultimately not attainable for the next coach. And Bama fans are going to go crazy when they inevitably come back down to earth. Even if they win a NC every 5-6 years, it’ll be like they’re only one third as good as they have been. There’s not a program in the country that wouldn’t be ecstatic with a couple NC’s every decade. Except for those crazy Bama fans of course.

      Pawwwll needs the nut jobs to get national attention. The crazy callers always go to the front of the line. I think he’s a first class ass personally. He’s been smart enough to see how to monetize those crazy idiots. For that I’ll gladly tip my brand new Georgia National Championship hat to him for his success with a cheery fuck you and the network you rode in on.
