The Crimson Tide is seeking its fifth national title under head coach Nick Saban.
“I think I’m always looking for the next challenge”, said Saban”. Today, Georgia Football plays for the National Championship against Alabama.
Although record-setting for college football, the championship game still falls well short of what folks pay to get into the Super Bowl. The unit is led by first-team All-SEC linebacker Roquan Smith, who made 124 tackles this season, including 11.5 for a loss. Scott Woerner was a standout on Georgia’s 1980 national championship team.
Tagovailoa getting action in this game perhaps isn’t too surprising, as Alabama said they were prepared to play him in the Sugar Bowl against Clemson.
This is just the eighth meeting between the programs since the SEC split into divisions in 1992, and one of those was in the 2012 SEC championship game (one of the best games in that event’s history, by the way).
That performance, though, was not even the best one for a Georgia running back in that game. He has to pace, a nervous habit that lingers from his 25 years on the Georgia sideline.
“I think it’s pretty cool”, Alabama punter JK Scott said.
As for me, I’d use $12 to get my own Chick-fil-A and another $8 to spend on a 2-liter of Diet Dr. Pepper and some pretzels to snack on and park my rear on the couch and watch the game from the comfort of my home.
Alabama also has a veteran secondary to contend with the passing of Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm. His introduction was harsh, in his very first game with the Bulldogs to open the 1964 season.
“I’ve just been trying to focus on being dominant up front, for real”, Payne said. If Smart actually took that picture, he not only disrespected his friend in Coach Saban and the entire Alabama team – he committed football treason.
Third seed. SEC champs.
Mr. College Football, a Georgia graduate, can be forgiven for picking Georgia-check below. “He never asked anyone to work any harder than he did”, Smart said.
“The team has a lot of similarities”, he said. This team’s no different. He also refused to go into one of the interactive booths at Fan Central where Walker was posing for pictures with fans. “And the kicking game, good kicking games”.
Before taking on the top dog role at Georgia, Smart worked under Saban as the Alabama defensive coordinator.
“Kirby has been there before”, he said.
Academy Sports and Outdoors in Brunswick has boxes full of championship merchandise waiting to fill the shelves if the Bulldogs win Monday night. Alabama’s run defense hasn’t truly been tested that much this season, though Auburn, LSU and Mississippi State had success on the ground.
“Sometimes it has to all fall in place, but he has taken advantage of that”, Dooley said. “They play really physical”.
Gold says network officials reached out to the White House through the Alabama governor’s office last week to request an interview with the president and heard back in the last day or so that Trump agreed to come.
