One Year Makes a Difference

Before the most recent season, it had been so long since Alabama was a good football program. Sure, there was the flukiest 10-win season in history under Shula (2005) and another 10-win year under Fran (2002). And the SEC Championship under Dubose (1999).

But when’s the last time ‘Bama fans celebrated a good season and didn’t just hope the future was bright? Back when the Dallas Cowboys ruled the professional gridiron, Bill Clinton was in his first term, and Miley Cyrus was in kindergarten. That’s when.

After back-to-back stellar recruiting classes, an SEC title game appearance and a Sugar Bowl berth, the Crimson Tide Nation knows the future is bright this offseason. It’s been a rough run, but take a look at the SEC four-year standings before the 2008 season compared to the SEC four-year standings after the 2008 season below. Significant difference, and this time it feels like it’s gonna get even better in the years to come.
