    Only thing that was missing in that Championship was, Dabo had very rare opportunity to hang 50 pts on an Alabama team. I think the last time a team put 50 pts an Alabama team was Florida at home ''90.

    I think Alabama has hit its peak already. Other teams are starting to catch up.

  • jason beauchamp 6 months ago

    rapinbatches maybe cause almost beat them twice regardless of schedule they almost lost Ima bama fan but u just sound delusional

  • rapinbatches 6 months ago

    @jason beauchamp what makes you think Georgia has a chance. The only reason they get so far every year is their cupcake schedule which just happens to bypass bama.
