    Or perhaps, he threw it purposely. Either way, it was a bad way to go out, and an insult to ever team member and fan.

    Willie is a classless turd.
    Yup. No one will ever be able to convince me the coaches were going at full throttle that week, especially with all the supposed drama going on behind the scenes.

    Several former players on Twitter said we worked on BG that week. Everyone overlooked them including the staff, fans, and the players. You want to know why Saban when playing a FCS acts like they are the Patriots? This is a prime example.

    That is a cool story, but evidently wrong. That game was played on December 5, 2015 and the announcement of our opponent and bowl game was made on December 6. At least that is what my Google search shows.

    All of those losses were embarrassing, very embarrassing! I chose the Georgia State game though because we did have a competent coach and very good players and there is no way we should’ve lost that game. Tim Stowers turned out to be less of a coach than expected, the one whose name will not be spoken turned out to be a complete douche bag, Willie Fritz was capable of winning that game.

    2017 UNH was horribly embarrassing. The game was moved to Birmingham due to a Hurricane coming towards the Boro. I was so excited because the game was only 2 hrs away from my house, and I getting to see a win in legendary Legions Field. It ended up being such an embarrassing beat down. I absolutely gave up on traveling to games at that time until Summers was gone. Then my prayers were answered after an equally embarrassing loss to an awful UMass team.

    I guess it all depends on how you define embarrassing. The Ga St loss inhale vigorouslyed bad no question but a lot of you are acting like we lost to a winless team that day. That was a .500 team that went to a bowl game. We’ve definitely had more embarrassing moments. To me losing to UNH blows the Ga St loss away when it comes to embarrassing. And Central Connecticut blows the UNH loss away.

    Playing the game in Birmingham probably saved the UNH game some embarrassment. I mean we were losing that game no matter where it was played. It would be more embarrassing if it happened in Paulson.

    2004 New Hampshire. I had to be there for Southern Pride so my family came down for thanksgiving. Such a terrific team put in a rain storm that our offense could (should) excel in. Iím still annoyed by it.

    To me, embarrassment = high expectations vs poor outcome, regardless of the opponent. The 2017 Auburn game was really bad. I know it was a P5 team and all that, but they completely dominated that game. Just couldnít even finish watching it. I was hoping it would have at least been as competitive as the last time we played Auburn in the 90s, but didnít turn out that way.

    Also, the West Virginia game felt similar to me. High expectations, but just just wasnít a competitive game.
