Alabama is Taking Its 2012 Loss to Texas A&M Extremely Personally
Texas A&M’s win over then-No. 1 Alabama last football season is apparently still a sore subject in Tuscaloosa, Ala., but moreso the source of some incredible motivation in the Crimson Tide football program.
In a photo posted on Twitter today, it shows the inside of Alabama’s weight room, where every TV in the room is showing the Aggies’ 29-24 shocking upset win over Alabama last November.
And, also according to Twitter user Taylor Travis, the A&M logo is placed on every weight station.

While Texas A&M’s win — spearheaded by Tyler native and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel — didn’t end up costing Alabama a shot at the BCS national championship (which it won in dominating fashion over Notre Dame), the loss has certainly meant an extreme amount of motivation in the Alabama program.
Nick Saban and Co. are certainly taking this seriously, and personally.
In case you’re wondering, Alabama comes to the Lone Star State to play Texas A&M at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, and it will be shown on CBS.
