When people say the run is over, wouldn't that be because they were beat by superior teams?  The only losses I saw for Bama were self inflicted losses, not being beat by superior teams.

I was disappointed in the LSU loss, but the Aubarn loss just really ticked me off. Absolutely no excuse in losing the game. I will never understand how this team could just not make critical plays in critical times. The most undisciplined team by far of the Saban era. Even before the game, I didn't think Bama was a playoff team. They're a good team, but by no means an elite team. Many factors contribute to that - just hope Saban can figure out how to fix it. Grrr!

I was disappointed when we lost to LSU too.  Really it was more of a frustration because of the mistakes made that contributed to it.  When Tua went down I really basically developed the mind-set that I didn't care about the season from that point on.  Then I started reading/hearing about how capable Mac Jones is and how much confidence the rest of the Bama team had in him I became confident in the team and was anxious to win out with the possibility of making the CFP again.  Mac Jones (Joker) didn't disappoint in the Western Carolina game and as Coach said in his game description, except for the two INTs he played an outstanding game.  I fully believe that if we had won the Iron Bowl and made the CFP that we could definitely made some noise there.  Mistakes are a part of the game of football just like injuries are.  We have had far more than our share of both this season. Maybe that is just making up for the years where our teams were healthy and strong and didn't make many mistakes?  Not sure.
As far as Bama not being an elite team, they lost by just 5 points to LSU and just 3 points to the Barn.  They could have beaten them if a couple of plays had gone our way.  IMO, we could have easily beat Aubarn by at least two TD's had mistakes not been made and penalties were eliminated.  Question for you:  If we had beaten both LSU and Aubarn would you think we would be considered elite?  I believe that there are only a very few teams that could beat Bama this year if we played as we are capable and eliminate the penalties.  That makes us elite IMO.

Not trying to be contentious, just hoping to give you a different perspective.

I also think the future defense looks very promising with all the freshmen that played this year.  They do have a lot to improve on.  I think the OL came together that last game, except for the penalties.  Those penalties, on both sides of the ball, have to be minimized.  I know injuries are a part of the game, but Bama seem to have more than their share this season.

I know our Freshmen have experience but I wonder if they are going to run off to the nfl when they good at their job? I apologize for getting upset when we lose but I have always been a perfectionist and I am that way on myself. I really think our kicking game needs a coach for that position. I wonder if CNS would be willing to give up a couple of million dollars to buy a DC that could really build a monster defense. It seems we never have a great offense and defense the same year. RTR!

If you look at the mock draft on cbs sports we lose half our offense in first round. RTR!

I think if Tua, Moses, McMillon, and the others who were crucial to both sides of the ball weren't hurt, maybe Bama would have been elite. Again, don't get me wrong - Bama is a very good team. But with the injuries and defensive issues, definitely a drop off from previous years. I will say this - the CFP committee took a Bama loss that was close and dropped them 7 places while dropping Michigan, who lost by 29 at home, only three. That is preposterous.

I didn't pay attention. Likely few Bama fans care where Bama lands in the rankings if it's not the top 4.   For some teams, making the top 10 is rarefied air.  For Bama, it's about the championship.

But I suspect that the committee decided to rank Alabama as it is without Tua, since Tua is no longer playing.  The only reference points were Western Carolina and Auburn.  So Bama probably got less credit for earlier season wins and statistics, and instead the committee considered the team as it is now -- the team that went to Auburn, played sloppy, and lost.  The other SEC teams that beat Auburn are all ranked ahead of Bama.
