Georgia Bulldogs to Face Texas A&M Aggies; 'Bama-Texas Set As Expected

First things first . . . the national championship game has been set, and, as expected, it will pit the Alabama Crimson Tide against the Texas Longhorns. Put another way, it will pit Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart, a member of the University of Georgia graduating class of 1999, against Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, a member of the University of Georgia graduating class of 1995. Clearly, the lesson of this college football season is that the key to winning a national championship is putting your defense in the hands of someone who graduated from the University of Georgia in the 1990s. (For the record, I received a B.A. from the University of Georgia in 1990 and a J.D. from the University of Georgia in 1997. My resume and references are available upon request.)

As always, there is some controversy regarding the two teams picked to compete for the final No. 1 ranking. Let’s ask Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow what he thinks of the Alabama-Texas matchup. Tim?

Thank you, Tim. For the record, here is a list of the most recent years in which each of the twelve teams in the SEC went undefeated:

Auburn Tigers: 2004
Tennessee Volunteers: 1998
Alabama Crimson Tide: 1992
Georgia Bulldogs: 1980
Arkansas Razorbacks: 1964
Mississippi Rebels: 1962
LSU Tigers: 1958
Vanderbilt Commodores: 1944
Mississippi St. Bulldogs: 1940
Florida Gators: 1911
South Carolina Gamecocks: 1907
Kentucky Wildcats: 1898

I’m just saying.

Closer to home, the news was as expected: Georgia will go to the Independence Bowl to face the Texas A&M Aggies. The game will be played on ESPN2 at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 28.

Go ‘Dawgs!
