How Alabama continues to get a pass hidin’ on Big Momma’s porch in Tuscaloosa! “Blind Eye”

Four out of the last eight national championships have been won by the Alabama Crimson Tide. So that means that dun reppin’ Alabama nation can be pretty cocky when you sit down to talk with them. Duns will talk $100 worth of noise to you in a minute. And you know what playa? I’m cool with a boy talkin’ trash win they’re winnin’/ What I don’t like is when a boy is talkin’ crazy to you while he’s standin’ on Big Momma’s porch and she’s in the window.

Don’t get it twisted bruh, Bama has consistently been great under ole Nick and even before the dun got there it was a blue blood of the sport. However, would it be winnin’ at the level it always wins if it weren’t hidin’ in Tuscaloosa every year? They play a bogus non-conference schedule and boyz coverin’ this sport turn a blind eye to it like it’s not happenin’. They already play in the SEC West which is trash and then it plays the Little Sisters of the Poor (non-conference schedule) at home EVERY year!! So again, would they win 11 or 12 ball games a year if they were at least playin’ a reputable non-conference schedule against at least one legit school in a home and a away set up.

And this year they didn’t even win their conference! They were third in the SEC! They weren’t even the conference champs but the duns on the committee and all of these fake media-types sell this foolishness like they don’t see what Nick Saban and Co. is doin’ every year.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Bama’s schedule was as bad if not worse than Wisconsin’s but NOBODY blinked!!! They always open on a neutral field in the SOUTH. They’ll never play a true road game in the non conference. They always play the openin’ weekend either in Atlanta or Dallas against someone on a NEUTRAL field in the south. This year they opened with Florida State. De’Andre Francois got hurt and they were garbage this year. Then they played Fresno State, Colorado State and darn Mercer all at the crib as their non-conference schedule. Not to mention the trash SEC West schedule of Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Tennessee, a decent LSU team, Miss State and then they loss to Auburn.

What blows my mind is that in Week 12 when everybody in America was playin’ for their lives. Nick and Co. were takin’ a smoke break playin’ a mid-major basketball school, Mercer, at home. Wheredeydodatat?

If you’re the big bad wolf then start schedulin’ some real non-conference games home and away like most big time schools. The duns from the SEC refuse to schedule home and away deals with Power 5 schools outside of the south. And on some real talk, they rarely schedule Power 5 opponents for non-conference games. They’re always playin’, the Fordham’s, Georgia State’s, Troy’s, East Carolina’s, Georgia Southern’s of the world.

Georgia goin’ to South Bend to play Notre Dame this year was the first time they’d crossed the Mason Dixon line to play a game in more than 50 years. LSU finally got the gonads to go north last year to play Wisconsin and got drug at Camp Randall. Other than those two nobody’s leavin’ the south to play. We saw Purdue blast Mizzou this year but Mizzou was trash in the Big 12.

Stop hollerin’ this SEC foolishness when boyz are afraid to go to Ohio State or Michigan or USC or Oklahoma etc. We saw Ohio State and Oklahoma just play a home and away rip these past two seasons. We saw Texas travel to USC and vice versa. We’ve seen teams like Oregon travel to Michigan etc. but we NEVER see Alabama play outside of the south and you better not ask them to go west or north.

Naw playa, they aren’t doin’ that but they’ll scream SEC in a minute. That’s like the dun that wants to always play you on his court where he knows where all the hot spots are but never wants to go to your house and play. Again, Bama is the real deal but would they win 11 or 12 ball games EVERY year if they were playin’ at least one Power 5 home and away non conference game?

The perception would completely change if that were the case. They can get picked to play in the College Football Playoff without winnin’ their conference over teams that have won their conference because of perception alone. Are they extremely good? Yes! Will they beat Georgia? Probably so! Do they deserve to be playin’ for a national title based on their schedule and the fact that they didn’t win their conference? Not at all.

There are 128 teams playin’ FBS college football and there are only about 14 teams that will ever win a national title because it’s always subjective as to who gets in. They are: Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, USC, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Auburn, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas and Miami. There are more SEC teams because of the perception that it’s the best conference from top to bottom when it’s really top heavy with consistently 3 to 4 teams like every other conference. So you get picked to play for the title more often than the other cats.

Oh am I lyin’? I heard Joey Galloway on ESPN pencillin’ Bama into the national title game Week 3 without even seein’ how it would play out. So you already knew that even without an SEC title they would get in because the major sports network is sellin’ this foolishness.

Twenty years ago I would have added Notre Dame to that list of 14 but they’ve literally got to run the table to get in because they don’t belong to a conference. So when they lose they’ve got no conference title to hold up to get them in and the major network isn’t sellin’ them to America.

So back to my original point. Alabama’s always in a position to win a national title because they never have to justify their schedule and the votin’ is always subjective with people that will give them the benefit of the doubt. So whenever they’re standin’ there with 11 wins regardless of who they’ve played. They’re gettin’ in and if you give Nick Saban 30 days to prepare he’s goin’ to beat anybody. We can’t hate the playa, we gotta hate the game and I definitely do. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
