    I think BYU handles these guys. Dumb playoff format.

Doesn't help that his wife also served in Alabama - so they support each other in their fandom. The only good part of this is that he isn't way into sports - so he isn't obnoxious in his fandom.

    Anyway - with that disclosure in mind - my hate for Bama has softened. But I'm also OK with them losing.
    I know what your son means. Having served in Bama and dealt with the same obnoxious/irrational fans I could not root for them either. Still cannot..

    Here is an example of a delusional Bama fan who posted tonight.

    Inflated view of his team? Making excuses? Unwilling to accept defeat?

    Hmm... that looks awfully familiar.

    The way the game started, with Clemson having a 3 and out and then Bama rolling up rushing yards, I thought it was going to be a lopsided win for the Crimson Tide. The pick-6 was cool, but I thought it would be too little.

    That first quarter was really fun football to watch - back and forth with big plays and on the scoreboard. Clemson pulling away the rest of the game was great because everyone hates Bama.

    Lawrence hasn't been great this year. he's been good for a true frosh, but for much of the year he was more of a game manager who allowed the run game to lead them to wins. i think it was the first pass he threw once they got the ball back after bama's TD, he sailed it over one of their tall receivers heads from about 10 yards away - just a terrible pass and i thought the moment would be too big for him. it was at that point i thought it would be a blow out for bama. but clemson made those red zone stops, lawrence settled in and gained confidence and here we are.

    A couple of wrap-up thoughts about last night's game experience... Over the years, I've moved increasingly toward staying at home in favor of the live experience, usually enjoying better views, far greater convenience, cheaper, etc. But last night was a great reminder of why "being there" has some considerable advantages. Not even caring that much about the game itself, I was caught up in the tremendous electricity generated by both fan bases--the enthusiasm was palpable I felt lucky to be there. I need to get out more...

    Both fan bases were great and the atmosphere was awesome, even after the game, although Bama fans were understandably far more subdued, but still good-natured. I was walking ahead of a couple of Tide fans and heard one of them say, "Dayum, if I wanted to get abused like that I woulda stayed home with muh wife!" But even they were laughing about the experience.

    The fears about Levi's Stadium being a lousy place to host the NC proved unfounded, I think. They're reporting only a couple hundred unsold seats, with maybe a few hundred no shows. The weather was about perfect (lucky timing) and the field looked great. Now if only the Niners can get good again that'll be a pretty nice stadium to visit.

    I have a cousin who is a "lifelong" Bama fan. I called him out on it last year on Facebook, and he said, "I'm from there." To my knowledge, he had only lived in two Western states his entire life. His mom came to his defense, explaining that he lived in Alabama from birth to six months while his dad was working on a project in Mobile. I stand corrected.

    I lived the same amount of time (birth to 6 months) in Corvallis, Oregon. Still waiting to for the Beavers to win something so I can claim them.

    Apologies for the slight to the Oregon St. Beavers. But in 2000, the Beavers were coached by Dennis Erickson and I couldn't get on the bandwagon after his years at Miami. I limit my college sports fandom to football and women's volleyball so was not aware of the Beaver's baseball prowess. If/when the Beavers make it to the Rose Bowl, I'll be reclaiming my birthright unless they happen to face Nebraska. Admittedly, the odds of a Beavers-Cornhuskers Rose Bowl are long.

    My oldest son was born in Columbus, Ohio and lived there for less than a week before we made our move to Oregon. I have been raising him as an Ohio State fan and hope he always will be. My daughter was born in Eugene, Oregon and only lived there for about 18 months. I have been raising her as an Oregon fan and hope she always will be.

    For a moment I was super proud and then you went and shizzed all over it..

    Both my kids were born on day of The Michigan Game. They both waited till after the game to put my wife into labor. Oh, and we won the game that year too.

    At the bowl game we met an OU fan who claimed the school as his own by virtue of the fact that he was born at a military base in Oklahoma less than a week before his family relocated pursuant to a reassignment order. He’s never returned to the state. The guy was probably 60 years old but wholly unfamiliar with the Three Dog Night song about that very scenario. How is this possible?

    Can I claim OU as one of my teams - I spent about 5 yrs of my youth at an OK Army base between 1960-1970 and another 6 mths while I was in the Army

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to, "The United States of America ", for an amount of "up to and including my life - it's an honor."
