    National Championship - Overlooking GA (next time , a better title will be required)

    Everyone talks as if we are in the NC. I hope the players don't think they have the Ga game won. It is going to be difficult.

    After getting a second opportunity to go to the NCG, I'm certain no one will take the Dawgs lightly. Out of the 3 games we have left, it will be our toughest. Saban will have them focused.

    You just did the same thing with the Iron bowl. One game at a time playing Alabma football and all will end well for us. RatR!

    If we take GA lightly or look past them we will get beat badly. They are a very good team and will play us tough. The Barn is a different story and we will pound them.

    Exactly right. Georgia has the players to beat us if we take them too lightly. Bama better hope that Aaron Murray doesn't have his best game of the year like every other QB we've played this year. We, however, have much better coaches. I trust Saban to have this team focused and ready to play.

    BTW, what happened to a week off between the end of the regular season and the championship game?

    I think the went the way of the DODO when the conference went to a regular season schedule of 12 games.

    SEC eliminated it several years ago. They need to rethink it. SECCG has always been special enough to warrant an extra week of preparation. Will be even more special with the 4 team playoff coming.

    I'm pretty sure it's now part of the TV contract -- all rivalry games must be played Thanksgiving weekend to provide plenty of "inventory" for CBS and ESPN while everyone's home watching.

    I'm quite sure CNS will have them focused the next 2 games...

    I know if the Team is half as pumped as I am for this opportunity they will make the most of it. I see no reason to think CNS will allow them to think about anything other than the next step.

    This team gets to show its true character now & will take advantage of it.

    It's my understanding that the Iron Bowl will be a week later next year.

    Re: National Championship

    i don't know why anyone would think that this team, that didn't get the SEC title last year even though it was one of their goals, is going to overlook the SECCG regardless of who we are playing.

    add:
    i think that we will see our best game of the year so far in the SECCG.

    This is what I like to hear. We've had a lot of Debby Downers. I think we had a rough spot just like every other team. I can't wait until tomorrow!
