Game of the Week

We head South for this installment of Game of the Week, and they don't come much bigger in these parts. It's Georgia at Alabama. The skinny: Alabama is favored by 3.5 points.

Some in Georgia are saying to take the points, but one has to consider that the Bulldogs are starting two freshmen on the offensive line, the first time that has happened in Athens since 1945.

Certainly reason for concern. Unless, of course, you know what you are talking about, which brings us to Georgia Sports Blog. We asked them for an opinion on the game, and here is what Paul, the head dawg at the site, had to say:

"In 2002, UGA was undefeated, but still unsure of itself when former UGA letterman and Auburn head coach Pat Dye went on the Paul Finebaum show and said, 'I don’t think Georgia’s man enough to beat Alabama. Alabama’s gonna line up and run the football and they gonna play defense, and I don't believe Georgia’s man enough to beat that.'

"I've never seen one comment motivate a team as much as that. Georgia 'out toughed' Bama in Tuscaloosa and won a huge game. 'Man Enough. Dawg Enough.' Tougher team wins one, too. It’s 'Man Enough II.' "
