A chance to right a wrong
Four years and two months ago, Georgia was favored to beat a young Alabama team in Athens. We were favorites to win a national title with all of our future NFL stars. Instead the Dawgs got their brains beat in 41-30.
I was amongst the 95,000 attendees who wore black for the ceremonial blackout at Sanford Stadium that evening. Tide fans still won't let us live it down. They called it a funeral especially since we all wore black.
The 2 teams went in different directions following that game. The Tide won 2 national titles. Georgia lost to teams like Central Florida and Kentucky and didn't even win an SEC title.
The Tide fans have been looking forward to this game since last Saturday's shellacking of Auburn. For Georgia fans, meanwhile, this matchup has been anticipated for more than 2,000 days.
It's our turn!
