I put the question to a handful of Bulldogs buddies: Who do you want to win the SEC championship?
My friend Scott’s initial reaction: “I’m pulling for the Goodyear Blimp to spin out of control and pull a Hindenberg at the Dome.” But failing that, he said, Bama.
That, in fact, was the unanimous answer from all the UGA fans I heard from. As Tim put it: The team in red. Roll Tide!
Actually, Scott said that if he thought another national championship would push Urban Meyer to Notre Dame, he might actually pull for Florida, but all indications are he’s staying in Gainesville “and I simply can’t stomach another Gator title. Bama is the lesser of two evils.”
That’s my own view. I’m not a fan of Nick Saban, but I’ve had it with the canonization of St. Timothy by CBS, plus I want to be able to root for the SEC team in the BCS championship, and I’ve learned my lesson about doing that when it’s the Gators.
I’m not sure Alabama is up to beating Florida, but I hope so.
So based on my instant mini-poll, Bammer seems the team of choice for UGA fans.
Is that who you’re pulling for?
