I think BAMA can beat UGA to win the SEC championship (if each team makes it), if we stay healthy especially at key positions.

I read where Chris Doering picked UGA's DeAndre Swift to win the Heisman. I hope Tua can play well enough and stay healthy to win it though.

It's good to see so many BAMA players on the pre-season list. RTR!

May be a bad omen. The media's only picked the SEC winner 7 out of 26 years.
I think it goes to show that it is easier to be the hunter than the hunted. Of course, we are accustomed to having the target on our back. Some years we handle it better than others. We shall soon see how 2019 plays out.

Apparently, winning the SEC is not a requirement for winning a national championship. So, win the SEC and NC or just win the NC , either way it’s all good!

NC is the goal, but the traditional purist in me prefers the SECC and then NC!:wink:

We got lucky in 2011 and 2017 I wouldn't count on that happening, especially with the playoff format.

So, is the media doing a poor job, or is winning the SEC a lot harder than people think?
I think it's both. We should have a really good team coming back. You'd be remiss not to pick Bama to win the SEC but there are land mines along the way.

You could also argue that 2015, and 2017 they got it right since in 2015 Alabama did win the west (they picked Auburn as champion) and in 2017 it was Alabama over UGA in the NCG.
