Comments

It’s hard to believe the SEC regular season has come and gone but now it’s on to 13, maybe more bowl games involving SEC teams. First things first though, the Crimson Tide meets the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship game. Alabama does seem a little down but do not be fooled. This Bama team is loaded. I’m picking Alabama to come out on a mission and beat Georgia. This means however, that Georgia could later play the Tide again, maybe for the national title. It’s very difficult to beat a good team twice in a season in college football. Look it up if you want. But again, I think this weekend Nick Saban and his boys prove some things to their doubters.
