Alabama finally cracked with some smack talk about its SEC Championship opponent on Tuesday afternoon.
And it was an Alabama running back from Georgia, Hillgrove High School’s Kenyan Drake, who fired the shot on Twitter:
Biggest game in 30 years?? We do this every year #rolltide
Drake is a freshman at Alabama, as this is his first season of college football. He was obviously making reference to UGA players or fans being hyped up about Saturday’s contest.
Drake may not be politically correct but he is right. It is UGA’s biggest game in 30 years because a win will give the Bulldogs a shot at winning the national title for the first time since 1980.
But should Drake have said it out loud?
UGA players have been talking a little smack, in bits and pieces, all week – most notably with safety Bacarri Rambo saying “We have better players (than Alabama) across the board.”
Meanwhile, Alabama coach Nick Saban and players have been relatively quiet in media interviews this week.
