Alabama has been a college football dynasty for some time now but they’ll end the decade by missing the playoffs.
The No. 5 Crimson Tide needed to win (and cross their fingers for some other favorable results) in order to return to the College Football Playoff. Instead, they lost 48-45 to No. 15 Auburn on Saturday in the Iron Bowl, with a missed kick to force overtime ringing off the, well, iron, to sink them once and for all.
People on Twitter were quick to dance on Bama’s grave when the team’s official account tweeted out the final score.
Ahahahahahahahahahaha bye bye playoffs for bama ????
