Deal! I can't stand Bama and Florida. I can't tell you how many temper tantrums I used to throw when I was a kid when Alabama or Florida would whip us. The Alabama games I remember losing or finished in a tie with them that I thought we should have won were the 1990 (Bama won, 9-7, on a late field goal, but we still won the SEC that year as well as the Sugar Bowl), 1993 (Bama kicked a late field goal to tie the game and that's how the game ended - in a 17-17 tie), 1994 (FVCK JAY BARKER AND HIS TOUCHDOWN PASS!!! Bama 17, Tennessee 13), and 2005 (I think Bama only won by a score of 9-3 or something like that. We had the ball inside their five yard line and I think Arian Foster fumbled away the ball to Bama and that's how the game ended.) Likewise, Florida pisses me off. They cheated to win the 1991 game 31-19 because Ron Zook gave Spurrier copies of our playbook. The 1993 game was awful - we would have won the SEC East that year had we won that game. I will never forget the 31-0 shutout Florida pitched against us in '94. In '95, we led 31-17 at halftime AND LOST 62-37 - and that was the only loss we had all season. In '96, we lost 34-28 because we gave up 31 first half points to the Gaytors. Then there's the 1999 game that had a touchdown called back that would have made the difference (I think the final score was 28-23 Florida), the 2000 game where we could get the damn ball into the end zone and lost 24-20. Finally, the 2006 might have pissed me off more than any of them because there was at least two times that I know of that we got the ball to the Florida 1 yard line AND HAD TO SETTLE FOR A FIELD GOAL. Final score of that game Florida 21-20.
Thank God I'm a Yankees fan, because I never have to worry about looking up to a rival as being our superior for very long before my team trumps them and wins the World Series. That makes me wonder why I like the Bears, Blackhawks, and Bulls. lol
