It is the policy of this publication to never rank teams with a loss in front of teams without a loss. The editor recognizes that some teams with more talent that already have a loss may pass many of these unbeaten teams by the end of the FBS season. The process tends to work itself out over the course of a season.  Only TWO teams in the FBS division remain in the ranks of the unbeaten.   Both unbeaten teams, Clemson and Iowa, should now have a clear path to a playoff berth as long as they win their remaining games.  Even though the FBS Playoff Committee will probably rank Alabama second,  at least America will have the opportunity to see whether or not that is indeed the case.  It is at this point that the editor of this publication becomes pleased that no undefeated teams are going to be left out of a deserved shot at a national title.  True, several one loss teams are going to be unhappy at being left out of the Final Four, but hey, THEY HAVE A LOSS.

All SEC Final Likely in Women’s College World Series

The probability of an all-SEC final in the Women’s College World Series became very high after action on Friday as the Florida Gators defeated Oregon 4-0,

while Alabama’s Lady Tide held Kentucky scoreless for seven innings.

Both Florida and Alabama remain in the winner’s bracket and must still be beaten twice to be eliminated from WCWS play.

Auburn Fan Response to Iron Bowl Field Goal Return, Classic!!

This video captured during the 2013 Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama captures the emotion of winning the annual braggin’ rights in a nutshell, as this War Eagle fan thoroughly enjoys the result of the last second field goal attempt and subsequent 100 plus yard return by his beloved War Eagles.
