Alabama learned a tough lesson on Friday – you have to play a COMPLETE 60 minute game if you want to beat a team as good as Auburn.
It seems team sports need villains, players or teams that evoke love or loathing. In college football it’s the Miami Hurricanes that play this role.

Hocutt made the decision shortly after Miami lost to South Florida 23-20 in overtime on Saturday afternoon, in a game where only about 27,000 people filled the 73,000 seats at Sun Life Stadium.
