The Sunday Rewind: ULM 21, Alabama 14
The Sunday Rewind is a weekly collection of notes and quotes from the Alabama football game of the weekend.
As upset losses go, Alabama's 21-14 defeat at the hands of Louisiana at Monroe was a real stomach turner. Once the Crimson Tide lost to LSU and fell out of the SEC West race, 2007 essentially became a one-game season (Auburn) for many fans. Unfortunately for UA, the team has played as though it became a one-game season as well. Since former coach Gene Stallings resigned following the 1996 season, Alabama fans have become all too familiar with losses like these. So which since that time has been the worst? Below is a look at the most embarrassing upsets of Alabama over the last 10-plus seasons:
|1997||home||Louisiana Tech||L, 26-20||DuBose|
|1999||home||Louisiana Tech||L, 29-28||DuBose|
|2000||home||Central Florida||L, 40-38||DuBose|
|2000||home||Southern Miss||L, 21-0||DuBose|
|2003||home||Northern Illinois||L, 19-16||Shula|
|2006||home||Mississippi State||L, 24-16||Shula|
