For everyone who was certain that Alabama’s dynasty was faltering after a disappointing loss to Ole Miss at home, you were wrong. Wrong I tell ya.
The 91,000 Dawgs’ fans getting drenched in a driving rain in Athens were there to see Bama take it on the chin against a highly vaunted Georgia team. The vast majority of them began streaming out of Sanford Stadium within minutes of the start of the 3rd quarter.
So…for all you bookies in Vegas and beyond who had Bama as underdogs, who’s the dog now?
Rammer jammer, yellow hammer. We just beat the hell out of you!
From CBS Sports, which aired the game, comes this succinct description of the game:
“Alabama vs. Georgia was billed as one team trying to prove its national championship credentials vs. one trying to prove theirs were as strong as ever. Turns out you can consider Alabama's alive and well…and continue to dismiss Georgia's on sight.”
