UF had 14 penalties for 130 some yards, while FSU had 2 for 10 yards...UF also had two catches taken away from them, one via review and the other never got reviewed which would have been big plays.
Blaming the refs now?

The wet dream of the media/bloggers is Bama/Irish, but I think the Dawgs are capable of the upset
I expect the SEC Championship to either be a close game or a Bama blowout
I don't see the Dawgs winning big
They can win or lose in a close game or they can let another one get out of hand


Attachment 380390
I couldn't agree more, I think it will be a nail biter down to the end and I hope it is that way. A blow out would be nice but those are not fun to watch. Even if it is your team doing the blowing out.

Roll Tide.......!

There is a great bar called Stats on Marietta Street. That's where I plan on going after college game day.

Oh and Go Dawgs!

I agree with Dawg. Adding FSU/Clemson doesn't do anything for the SEC, but adding a North Carolina school and a Virginia/DC-area school does, so that's the way I think it will go.

I agree about the ACC disappearing, though, and I agree that it all hinges on Mayland's exit fee. I doubt they end up "paying" more than next year's TV rights money (which they'll just forfeit instead of actually paying anything).

I'd love to see an A&M-UF rematch. The Gators got off easy getting to face Johnny and that offense in their first game.

Hope it is a good, well played game with both teams displaying character, intensity and doing their best... with no controversy, bad calls or stupid penalties deciding the outcome

Ditto that. I selfishly am hoping Alabama wins just because I think it would be neat if A&M was the only team to beat the national champion, but both these teams are deserving of their shot today. No matter who wins, I'm rooting for a nail biter.

Consider the following:

http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com...sp?CID=1239398

New Jersey ranks #10 on the top ten college football producing states.

So for Big ten recruiting, does that sound as bad? Not sure where Maryland ranks.

Also Virginia (ACC grounds) and NC (ACC Grounds) rank #7 and #9 respectively.

So I could see the BIG and SEC going for Virginia schools and North Carolina schools as well.

http://www.tulsaworld.com/specialpro...ts/starsearch/

Cities:

DC Ranks 7 (Maryland market)
NYC - 8

Also cool stats:

http://www.tulsaworld.com/webextra/c...earchbig10.pdf

If you click on the top right conference logo it will open that .pdf.

Cool stuff for the stats fans.

Seems like GA is playing like they want it more, they're playing so much quicker and with much more purpose.

Yup, we'll see if Alabama adjusts at halftime.

Yeah great start by UGA and a huge stand there on the goal line.

I hope they do. For the first time in a while, it actually hurts watching 'Bama try to move the ball - and that's a huge credit to GA for playing outstanding football. 'Bama isn't known for putting up huge numbers on offense but the offensive line is just getting outplayed and that's suppose to be an asset for Alabama.

EDIT: spoke too soon. That's the line we're used to seeing from them. Nice run by Lacy too!

Intense game of old man football

I do think there should have been a penalty on the Murray hit

Both teams played hard on defense and little tight on offense
Expect them to lay it all on the line in the second half

I want the Dawgs to play aggressive to win, not play to "not lose"

Definitely should have been a penalty on the Murray hit.

This is starting to feel a little like last's year's game. Hopefully UGA keeps it together better and keeps fighting. They've definitely got the players to hang in there and win this thing.

Jarvis Jones is the best linebacker in America. Way better than Manti Te'o.

Both teams missed opportunities and made mistakes.
Game was not decided in first half, so it is all up for grabs now.

Talking about missed opportunities, that was HORRIBLE clock management by Alabama. 3 TO's and you don't use any when you're past the 50? Come on...

Got to give respect to Saban for not abandoning his game plan after that blocked FG for a TD. No panic, stick to the run and they're right back in the game.

Dawgs are tired and getting worn down
Gotta step up and make a play

Offense gotta run clock and move the ball
Can't keep giving Bama the ball back

Ooooh...definitely got away with a hold there, totally turned around Mosley there.

But as good as 'Bama is, their defense is nowhere close to previous years - there isn't a Darius, Hightower, Barron-like player and keep getting burned like that.
