Who are Dogs fans pulling for in SEC championship?

SEC logoI 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?

Alabama for sure. On Saturday, they will be my second-most favorite
just behind the Dawgs. That designation each week, depending on who
the Gators are playing. I am a “Gator Hater”

Yes! And all I have to say is ROLL TIDE ROLL, lets spread the wealth around the SEC! By the way Bill you are the best blog man at the AJC and my favorite one to read out of any of the sports sites I visit on a daily basis. I am unable to make it to many games going to school up here in NC; but you help me feel as though I made it to every one of them, instead of just a few.Bama has a great program with respectable fans who know how to both win, and lose; the same cannot be said for Florida.

Sorry for the typo I eliminated the word “changes” above. I can understand the Tigers pulling for Fl but I bet the Dawg % will be 95 or
greater.

Another Title will not push Urban to ND. ND does not have the recruiting base or facilities to be a factor now and no coach will be given enough time to turn it around.

Tired of seeing everyone place the “Golden Boy” on such a high pedestal. The guy is an amazing athlete, but he’s not the only “good person” in college football. Meyer wouldn’t be nearly the coach he is without Tebow. It’ll be interesting to see what happens going forward. All that said, Saban is a great coach and I hope they do what we (UGA) couldn’t this year, STOMP ALL OVER FLORIDA! GO DAWGS!

I thought it was a blessed moment in the Florida/Fla State game the other day when Saint Timothy of Gainsville went out and laid hands on an injured opponent. I’m about to gag on the sweetness an goodness of Saint Tim. I want Bama to kick his ass up around his shoulders….

I’m not “rooting” or “cheering” for Florida, but I were prefer that they win instead of Alabama.

They don’t walk upright in that state. God-forbid if they win, Bear Bryant’s statue in Tuscaloosa will have to be guarded by state troopers from post game “celebrations”.

For those UGA fans living in Birmingham, like myself this is a tougher call. Yes, I hate UF more, but I don’t have to see or talk to any of them. Bammers are of course everywhere and are totally insufferable, arrogant idiots. I guess the only good thing about Sat is that one of them will lose. I suppose I’ll just enjoy the suffering of the loser and the focus on UT beating the winner, although UT will likely be destroyed by either team. I know people will say that we have to pull for the SEC, but I really couldgive a damn aboutconference loyalty BS.

BAMA…………….Saban has done a great job. No denying it. Bama fans be careful, Saban likes the brights lights and the money and will NEVER go back to the NFL, but if wins you a title, he’ll consider his mission done at Bama. He’s borderline elitist, and Ann Arbor at 6mil a year might look good to him after they fire Rich next year. You must realize the two of use are using each other, Bama and Saban that is…………….. enjoy it for now.

I am SEC through and through, Dawg fan first, conference second, save one, Florida. I will be pulling hard for bama in this one, as will almost all of the rest of the conference. In fact, the only people I have talked to who are for la., are Auburn fans.
Should Fla win, I will lay down my loyaties, and become a Colt McCoy and Texas fan for the title game. I want the title to stay home, but not with Florida. Urban Meyer and his gang are just too much too stomach any longer.

Bama.

Last I checked, lights were pretty bright there, too. Just as bright as they are in Ann Arbor. Saban isn’t going anywhere for the foreseeable future and the road to the SEC title goes thru T-town for the next five years, like it or not.

I can’t stand listening to the Bama fans in my office and how amazing their coach, running back and program are. They also can’t fathom the fact that their defensive coordinator would have any interest in coaching at his alma mater, when he has the been gracefully given the chance to coach under Satan’s representative in Alabama and for such a storied program as Alabama.

Despite all the praise for Mr. Tebow, he’s had a story book career. He is a once in a generation type player. Most fellow Dawg fans won’t admit this, but he accomplished everything we hoped Matt Stafford would do. While being the #1 draft pick was nice, I would trade it for the 2 maybe 3 national championship rings and 1 to 2 Heisman trophies.

That said I hope Florida wins 50-0, that is if the Goodyear blimp idea doesn’t happen.

The petty, jealous, and assine remarks just go to prove my earlier posting. If you are hating on the Gators then we must be beating you pretty well and pretty often. I would think some Division loyalty might be in order but I remember that this is a leghumper site and you puppies haven’t won much of anything lately. We need to start a website called keepwilliem.com!!
