07:38 AM ET 01.14 | First, there were the "never again" posters. Now, the decorations in the Alabama locker room have a few more words, but a similar message. "If you continue to do the same thing that you have always done you will get the same result. Guaranteed," the sign reads. Photos of the sign are making the rounds on social media and AL.com can confirm they hang in every player's locker. Above the message appears the scores of the Auburn and Oklahoma losses that closed the 2013 season. At the bottom, a simple "0-2" is the closing line. The quote is similar to one used by Nick Saban in the past and will seemingly be the rallying cry after the 11-0 start to 2013 ended with consecutive losses. Back in 2011, the "never again" signs appeared after losing a 24-point lead to Auburn in the 2010 Iron Bowl.

Any sign they put up couldn't be worse than that "Opportunity is Nowhere" Dooley put up.

Bingo. I'd seen that phrase used in some conference before, with people using it as an illustration for the way people see things. Some people see now here and some people seeing nowhere.

However, for the purpose of motivating 18 year old football players it's a terrible idea. Just leave out the here and put "Opportunity is Now"

It is funny. And it's the only funny thing about Dooley's reign of destruction. Unless you're a fan of any other team and his entire 3 year tenure is a long comedy reel.

We all should have known when 13 men lined up against LUS...

I would bet 99% of the SEC players would think NOWHERE instead of Now Here

When i go ogled there was a comment that someone should Photoshop it to say NOT HERE

and LSU would have outbid UT and taken Dooley away from them because he would have been a hot coaching commodity with LSU ties and then it would have been the destruction of your team.

Wow, you all dodged a bullet there.

As long as Dooley was there that would have been a true statement.

January 14, 2014  11:21 AM ET

Lol that sign is effin hilarious, how have I not heard of this before.

Worst

Sign

Ever

January 14, 2014  11:23 AM ET

Opportunity is nowhere, so might as well come to UTk. It appeals to the complacent.

January 14, 2014  11:29 AM ET

Other possibilities for UTk going forward.....

"Play like a champion today...or not, whatevs"
