Yea, you know stats, they're just fun to look at.
Who cares about November when you're bringing home the Crystal Ball in January.
Here is the rest of it;
Since 2009, Alabama has compiled a 4-5 record in November against teams that finished the season ranked.
Saban gets a pass for 2007;(or it would be 5-5) it was his first year, and he didn't inherit a program in good shape.
2008 Alabama did not face any opponents in November that finished the season ranked.
Chronologically, the 4 wins were against a
9-4 LSU, 9-4 Mississippi State, 10-3 LSU, and a currently 9-3 LSU.
The 5 losses were against an
11-2 LSU, 14-0 Auburn, 13-1 LSU, 11-2 Texas A&M, and a currently 11-1 Auburn.
What do the 4 wins have in common?
The opponent finished the season with 2 or 3 other losses.
What do the 5 losses have in common?
All of them were close, but Alabama always fell short. T
he opponent finished the season ranked in the Top 10. etc. etc.
Like I said, just interesting to look at how some things work out.
so Coach O quits in a huff after being passed over for the USC job after being offered the asst head coach position and a pay raise comparable to the Kirby Smart's of the coaching world....now USC will have to go to their bowl game with another interim coach....guess it wasnt all about the kids after all was it Coach O ?
I'm not spamming Bama friends, seriously,
just love me some Sports Science.
Here ESPN's Sports Science breaks down the Return.
O was probaby just p*ssed off that they passed him over for a lightweight like Sarkisian - can't say I blame him. Muschamp may be looking his way but then again, Muschamp may not have a lot of time left to look at and hire anybody but to one-year contracts.
as for Meyer not suspending the guys in the fight especially the one that flipped the double bird to the crowd, that will leave you shaking your head
How about Mark Richt at Georgia, I know they were decimated with injuries, but is he feeling the heat ?
