    Looking forward to UGAG choking it away again. They will have squandered a championship level defense this year like we squandered a championship level offense last year.

    Several young stars like Jacorey Brooks are ready. Williams, Slade Bolden, Billingsley, Brooks, and several others provide plenty of fire power.

    Agree. No way I’m pulling for Cincinnati.
    Legit guesses:
    Bama 34 Cincinnati 17
    Georgia 35 Michigan 20

    It is hard for the winner of the first game to win a rematch unless they are clearly superior.

    You have to believe that UGA would have a pretty good chance reversing Bama's win on Saturday night.

    Yes, he is excellent. He should be able to make a full recovery and be back next year to prove to the NFL that he healthy.

    Someone will draft him and give him millions if his recovery is successful.

    Bama is going to have to prepare for all out pressure on its qb. You can see uga putting more pressure in the second half getting more 3 and outs. When bama struggled offensively it was due to qb pressure. It's true especially here, if you don't get the qb, he will get you.
    If I were bama, I'd be working on screens, slants. sweeps, all kinds of plays to work against all out blitzes. Uga will not allow Bama's qb to beat them a second time if they can help it. I was surprised bama made no adjustments the second half with all those 3 and outs.

    Gotta be able to stop Bama from running first... UGA was able to do that. A lot of teams can't.

    Bama still outran Georgia. But Bama also doesn't have their normal stellar rush attack. So stopping the run is pointless given that Bama is 12-1 without a good run offense.

    Bama's strength is with their qb and wr's. They ran enough to keep uga honest but for bama to win, its through the air. Uga knows this and will live or die by pressure this time around. They cannot let the qb beat them if they are to win. So, you can bet KS is scheming up blitzes and ways to pressure Bama's qb. That is why bama has to be fully prepared for hot reads because it's going to come.

    For what it's worth, regular season rematches in the SEC Championship Game have the team that won the first time 5-2 against the team that lost the first time. Not sure what CFP matchups have been rematches (if any).

    Bama’s RB was basically playing on one leg. Next time he plays should be healthy. What ever smart plans, nick will have a counter for it.

    I seem to remember a time when L$U beat Bama during the regular season but then got smoked by the Gumps in the NCG.

    They did fine adjusting during the game when Metchie went down - now they've got weeks to adjust.

    Pretty sure it was Saban. He’s been there for like 49 years.
