I've been really impressed with the way most Alabama fans have handled victory. It's been a refreshing change of pace. I, like most, view that championship game as one of the best ever. And while I wish the outcome had been different, I can appreciate the fact that both teams left it all on the field. It was a GREAT game.
I wish Alabama the best next season, and hope we meet again in the championship game. Not only to renew the fun on the field, but to renew the fun between the fan bases off the field as well.

But now I kinda like them. Gracious in victory and they don't seem to act like they're bigger than the game. Left a good impression here on TNet for sure, excluding the ones with their head up their pulu of course.
I have to agree. Almost every Bama fan I ran into before, during and after the game was very gracious. I enjoyed conversations with everyone. The number one comment I heard (outside of how great the game was) was "what a quarterback you guys have". Heck living in Pittsburgh, I was shocked to actually run into two Bama fans from Philly and they were nice, totally shocked because they were originally from Philly not southern transplants. Go Tigers!
agree. The Alabama fans here have work have been classy. On the other hand, the usc fans have been a little noisey. I hear more about the loss from them than anyone else. That's okay. Baseball is set to begin in about six weeks. This year, we take two of three if not sweep them.
All have been extremely classy after the game, hotel after game, flights on the way home. Good conversations most saying they're #### lucky that kick worked cause they didn't have an answer for Watson. Haven't heard one roll tide since after the game finished except from a coot when we landed in Charlotte.
I have to agree. We earned respect in defeat and most Alabama fans have acknowledged that. The only ones I have had any issues with are mostly bandwagon fans who have no real connection to Alabama. You get that with every team I guess, but living in SEC country near to the state of Alabama really brings them out.
Agreed! This has been one of the strangest losses I've experienced for my Tigers.It still feels like a victory for Clemson even though the scoreboard says loss. Our young men left it all on the field and for that I am thankful. And as the op stated the bama fans have been pretty darn decent that I've interacted with. GO TIGERS!!
