    Alabama v. Georgia

    Best game on the board this weekend, as far as matchups in College. What is the consensus here? Does anyone think Alabama can actually beat Georgia straight up? If Nick Saban can pull this off he will solidify his position as one of the best coaches in the college game.

    2 weeks ago I thought Georgia was #1, but they havent impressed me, even though they made me money!

    SC could have beaten them if the ole ball coach didnt stop switching qb's on 4th down!

    I just pulled the trigger on Bama +7.5, I wouldn't be surprised if they win straight up though.

    Thats what I mean, big Joe. If Alabama beats them, Nick Saban is one of the best. He leaves LSU after a national title. Comes back after coaching the dolphins(where he sucked)...and now has Alabama on the verge of a top 3 team...if they can beat Georgia.

    unless Parker Wilson makes some big pass plays, Georgia might take it...leaning towards Bulldogs -7

    He is a great CFB coach! No doubt!

    I'd make Bama #1 if they pull this off.

    Win at Clemson, huge against ARK, and at Georgia!

    Nick Saban hasnt beaten Richt since 2003

    However I do think bama has a chance to win outright. Last year went down to overtime. UGA is a better team this year minus the pass rush. I'm not sold on John Parker Wilson handling the pressure of playing in Athens for a HUGE game.

    The key will be UGAs O-line containing the monsters of Bamas D-line. It will be a tight game and just for the thrill I put small wager on UGA covering the spread.
    If the UGA team that played Florida/Auburn/Hawai last year shows up then they will win easily.
    Depends on what team Richt puts on the field tommorrow

    I wouldnt go that far, big joe...but like I said, i would make them top 3. I would put Oklahoma and Florida above them...and thats it...if they can beat Georgia.

    your joking right.
    Clemson is a medicre team at best, and cant hold a grain of salt to 90% of SEC teams which Bama proved

    ARK-------

    if they beat UGA I will give them the respect they deserve but not untill then

    Just on my list, the others havent played a huge game on the road, Bama would have done it 2x

    I do think Florida and OK are better.

    OK will slip up sooners or later!

    I am telling you man.... I can't remember who but there was someone a while back saying Clemson will win it all.. It might of been right after the National Championship but I remember seeing it.. cannot recall who though.... I have a good memory so I know it was said....I used to check out ( but never a member ) the threads at the RX and it possibly could of been there.. not sure where but it was said by a poster..

    The line is perfect here...this game is a coin flip. I have Georgia winning by 6, both teams play great run d but I like Georgia's chances at running the ball a little better. Georgia can be hurt by the pass but they also have a pretty good passing offense. Neither team turns it over.

    If I had to pick I'd take Bama and the points cause it's so evenly matched. But the better team is playing at home, tough call.

    Roast, I think this is a perfect spot to lay heavy money on Georgia. Anytime you get a team in college less than 6 against a rival..and they are far better, talentwise...you gotta pull the trigger.

    I am so dead locked on this game, no way would I willingly put a penny on it. Georgia does have more NFL talent, are playing at home, and are ranked higher. If that's enough for you to lay the points then handle business...I'm scared straight.
