Man - just when things are kind of down around here, I have to go do some more reading and see this awesome reminder of a game we should've won (and I still swear to this day we did - even mentioned by ESPN announcers the night it happened):
The Alabama football players not only managed to successfully dodge the whiskey bottles and high-heeled shoes that rained down on them after their controversial win at Ole Miss, but they also did something no one on the roster had ever done. Not beat the Rebels ... that's been done three straight years with three-point wins each time. No, the Crimson Tide were behind 24-17 entering the fourth quarter, which means they won a game in which they trailed after three quarters for the first time in nearly six years.
It was a streak that lasted 24 games and stretched all the way back to the short-lived Dennis Franchione era, when Bama rallied to beat Iowa State 14-13 in the 2001 Independence Bowl.
