I live in Chattanooga about a quarter mile from the Georgia line. Our community is (of coarse) dominated by Vol fans but there are also tons of Georgia and Bama fans. The Georgia and Tennessee folks really like Pittman. Nothing but great things to say about him personally and professionally. Bama fans sure respect his coaching. Universally Vol fans are rooting for Georgia today. They hate Bama.
Today I went to Walmart and there were a lot of Georgia and Bama fans wearing gear. One couple made me LOL. She had Bama gear on and he was fully decked out in Georgia attire.
So I’m firmly with the Georgia folks today. Go Dawgs…
Bama’s offensive line has played better than it has all year… you give young time to throw as we saw he will eatv you alive. Georgia secondary has been suspect all year but nobody has had time to throw the ball to take advantage of it today they have
Is it possible we always overestimate Georgia in recent years because they play in the SEC East? If Georgia was in the West instead of Bama would their record be as good? I know they walked all over us but I think the last few years they have had it easy in the East.
I am not surprised that Alabama won, the team with the better QB seems to do that a lot. Have thought that Bennett’s limitations would rear their head when facing good competition. More surprised that Georgia’s defensive result was not considerably better than ours with Alabama.
I tend to be a little cautious about jumping to too big of a conclusion based on what I see in one game. Right after the Michigan State game, Michigan certainly did not look like a team that would play in the final four playoff. Georgia actually scored a lot of points in most games that they played this year, and without the three pass interceptions in this game it would have been much closer. Is Cincinatti better? Is Michigan better? Can Alabama dominate them a second time? Gosh, that’s why we look forward to and watch the games.
