“I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games.” - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.
The first two games were in Legion Field and the game was played in the afternoon. The first year was cold, the second it rained plus the second didn't matter nationally as both teams were out of the national title picture. The game moved to Atlanta in 1994. Starting in 1996 it was print- time, due in large part to the addition of the WAC and Big 12 title games. It was on ABC from 1992-1999; I don't know about 2000, I didn't watch it. The game has been on CBS since 2001 or perhaps 2000. The game was moved back to late afternoon in 2008.
I'll always look back as I walk away
This memory will last for eternity
And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
Til I find my way back to your arms again
Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard.

The SEC Title Game was on ABC from 1992-2000. It has been on CBS since 2001. It was an afternoon kickoff in 1992-1994. It was a night game from 1995-1999, and then again from 2001-2003. It has been a day game since 2004. I really miss it being a prime time kickoff on ABC. Especially now since my cable provider is dropping CBS tomorrow at 4:00 pm.
