This Saturday afternoon, Georgia or Alabama will be crowned the champions of the South Eastern Conference. Referred to as the premier conference in college football by many, the SEC championship guarantees us all what has been common the past few years. The winner of this game will go on to play Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game on January 7th. That would continue a trend that has already seen seven SEC schools in the BCS title game in the last six years, an achievement that no other conference can say they have accomplished. For Alabama, this would be their third trip to the conference title game since 2008. It would also mark the third time since 2009 that the Crimson Tide will finish one or two in the final BCS rankings if they win out. For Georgia, this trip to the SEC Championship game will be their second in a row, losing to LSU last season 42-10. They will not only be playing for the SEC championship, but also for the school’s first ever trip to the BCS title game. Alabama is currently favored by seven but Georgia, along with quarterback Aaron Murray, will look to prove the oddsmakers wrong. Murray has been hot as of late as he has thrown 14 touchdowns and no interceptions since the second half of the game against the Gators. On the other sidelines, quarterback AJ McCarron will look to carry the Tide past the Bulldogs with mistake-free football (just two interceptions by the junior quarterback). But is the nation opened to seeing another SEC school playing for the national championship game? Last year’s Alabama-LSU BCS championship matchup drew the third lowest television ratings for a national championship game in 14 years of BCS history. So whether we are ready for it or not, the SEC will be sending yet another school to college football’s big stage. And that is guaranteed.

Alabama lost their one game to a red hot QB, and now with one step closer to a chance to repeat as National Champions, they go up against a quarterback who may be more dangerous.
If you try and compare Texas A&M's and new Heisman flavor of the season Johnny “Football” Manziel to Alabama’s opponent on Saturday, Georgia’s Aaron Murray, you would be surprised that...

Theyre asked to do to different things in their systems.
With AJ McCarron, some people think its a knock on a guy to be called a game-manager. I think thats a compliment, because as a quarterback you have to manage games, you have to manage situations and I think...
What a week 13. Congratulations are in order for John Mitchell, who had the first perfect week of the year. Seth Doege’s unlikely interception-filled performance, worsened by some unfortunate tipped balls, spoiled my bid at a one-loss week, and with the season’s final set of games approaching we’re all vying for that .500 mark:

Aaron Murray has opted to remain incognito this week as his No. 3 ranked Georgia Bulldogs prepare to face-off against Alabama this weekend.

Bama-Georgia Ya’ll. Since many believe football barely exists outside the SEC, if you watch this you might not need to watch anymore football this week. (Sseriously though, you’d be an idiot if you did that.) Aaron Murray is super cereal about this game and issued his own personal media blackout. He’ll be fired up and ready [...]

He will not get invited even if he goes bonkers against the Crimson Tide, but he has more important things on the line.
