Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Yesterday’s vaunted matchup between the #8 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and the #3 Georgia Bulldogs turned into a first half neutering of the puppies in front of a stunned blackout crowd in Athens.
Alabama scored on its first 5 possessions to take a commanding 31-0 lead at halftime. The Crimson Tide’s performance in the first half is arguably the most complete and balanced football played by any team in the entire NCAA this year.
Georgia rallied in the second half, but Alabama proved too dominating a team, putting Georgia away 41-30.
All of which adds up to the fact that Alabama is not only back, but a legitimate contender this year.
