I can't stand Bama and esp Saban OTOH I dislike most things Georgia, so it's Georgia by the slimmest of margins.

Can't really win since it will be an SEC school either way, but Georgia the lesser of two evils.

I am really interested in seeing the TV ratings for tonight's game. The lead college football writer for USA Today was predicting a very poor showing. Not only because the game involved 2 teams who are right next to each other and who play in the same league, but also because fans throughout the country are getting tired of Alabama dominating the sport. That was his observation as a national sportswriter. Despite all the talent that UK and Duke gather up in college basketball, they don't make the final 4 every year. I don't know about the pros, but from a TV standpoint, it's not healthy for a collegiate sport to see one team dominate like this. I mean, even in a season where 'Bama failed to make it to their conference title game, and ended up losing to a team that was beaten by college football's only unbeaten team.....they STILL won the national title. Unfortunately nothing can really be done about it until Saban retires, although I hear Georgia has got an unbelievable recruiting class coming in.

There was at least one blown call that could have meant the game. Also, it's apparent that teams in the SE seem to have an abundance of big fast sumo wrestlers at their disposal while in other parts of the country they seem to be scarce. Both Bama and Georgia will be tough to beat next year.

SEC schools probably have a higher salary cap than other conferences. I'm kidding. Sort of. Not really.

Along those lines. Charles Barkley likes to talk. You maybe can't believe everything he says. But this doesn't seem like the kind of thing you'd lie about. Regarding how it works at Auburn and the SEC. Athletes being "taken care of."

Did you see the post game interview with the Hawaiian QB? He thanked the Lord for a lot of stuff including his family being able to move to Alabama to follow his career.

Ha ha. I didn't watch a second of the game or any post game. Are you suggesting it wasn't the Lord that allowed his family to move to Alabama, but maybe some generous boosters?

Well, the thought occurred, but then I'm a skeptic about a lot of things. Sometimes The Lord works in mysterious ways though.

Shaq has made similar remarks about LSU.

Both those players were 20+ years ago, were they not? No doubt that things used to be done. They are not supposed to be being done now.

I know they weren't supposed to be done then too, but it should have improved somewhat.

If those things were done before, it's very possible they are still being done. And Charles was laughing about Cam Newton being a good investment for $200,000. That wasn't very long ago. I seem to recall one of Newton's teammates, Nick Fairley, claimed he was paid while in college, shortly after he left school. I can't find a google link regarding that, but I have a fairly distinct memory of hearing that reported on TV.
