Alabama Getaway

Georgia - 26, Alabama - 23 [OT]. How 'bout them damn Dawgs? And how 'bout Buford's own Mikey Henderson? There was maturity and poise in the waning moments of this game...as opposed to the stumbling and flop-sweating we saw versus South Carolina. The offense controlled the ball (an almost ten minute advantage in time of possession), doing just enought to win....while the defense held the Tide to a dismal 3-of-15 conversion rate on third down. Best of all, nobody panicked when a long field goal attempt at the end of regulation just went wide. Like I said, poise and maturity...and, I'm sure, a huge dose of confidence for a team still in search of an identity. Around the league, South Carolina lost and Florida looked very mortal against Georgia's next opponent, Ole Miss. I'm telling you, this division is still up for grabs.

That was a great win, made even sweeter by the fact that I cant stand that 40 million dollar coach ata "bama. Maybe I am jealous...Maybe I could be a 40 million dollar middle school school.

Anyway it was a great win.

This is definitely a much nicer place to be living in when the Dawgs are winning. Good mojo abounds.
