I got a feeling this video is going to pop up all over the place.

As much as I would love to pull a Bill Murray and relive this past weekend over and over again, like JD (lots of A-listers in town this weekend) said today, we must move on. Those Hotty Toddy Ole Miss Rebels are coming to town. Hopefully Georgia won't sleepwalk through this 1:00 non-televised SEC contest or we could be in big trouble (a la Florida). Look away, look away, look away Dixieland!

5 Keys to the Game (some of these might sound obvious but I'm gonna throw them out there anyway):
1. Get 'Shon and 'Miko the ball: Simply put they're our two game breakers (and the only two guys that can catch the ball) and CMB has to find ways to get them the ball. Then MS has to deliver it to them.
2. Our offensive line against CNS's complex blitz packages: JH4's boy Velasco needs to be on top of his game in pointing out things to the younger guys. He needs to keep them calm as well. With the crowd I'm anticipating Saturday night I expect some false starts and motion penalties so 'Nando just needs to settle them down. I'm confident he can take care of this task.
3. Our front 7 against JPW and Terry Grant: Based on CWM's defensive scheme, the front four must pressure JPW or we could be in for a long night. He's got some weapons around him in terms of receiving (D.J. Hall) and rushing (Terry Grant- he's looked pretty damn good from what I've seen). However with a little pressure he will throw some picks (2 against Arkansas). Somebody in the linebacking corp besides Ellerbe must step up and make a play whether its Miller, Dent, Dewberry, or whoever. They need to take better pursuit angles as well as drop the number of missed tackles.
Honorary Horsemen Owens and Battle will take out the Tide's Offense
4. Secondary needs to find the ball better: Hopefully CWM took a little time in practice this week to teach his DB's how to have their head on a swivel. If he can't teach them, I know a couple of guys who can- CDC and CBVG.
5. Wildcard- MS: Now I'm one of the bigger Stafford supporters around but even I must admit he hasn't played so great this season and that MUST change for Georgia to win Saturday night. He's made some great throws so far this year, showing us flashes of brilliance, but he's also missed a lot of open guys and it has cost us TD's. Unfortunately this is where I'll tie in the receivers as well because accuracy doesn't matter when guys can't catch the damn ball. So CJE (a guy whose coming close to only having two options soon in my book) needs to use the tennis ball machine or whatever other techniques he can come up with to get these guys consistently catching the ball. If MS needs anymore motivation, Tide defensive end Wallace Gilberry had this to say:
The Tide senior was asked if he knew anything about Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford and Gilberry replied that he didn't -- because Alabama players don't watch film of their next opponent until Monday afternoon. "But after the game Saturday, I can tell you anything you want to know," Gilberry said. "His birthday, his telephone number, his home address. I'm serious, because I will know."
When asked why, he answered, "I've got to know where to send the flowers after the game."
My prediction: Georgia jumps on the Tide early, taking the crowd out of it... for a while. CWM's soft zone defense allows 'Bama back in the game but the Dawgs hold on in the end with a late field goal from BC. Final Score: Georgia- 23 'Bama- 20
Other planned weekend happenings:
CRP's Hoover Buc football team takes on Mt. Brook in a region game at the Hoover Met (Sidenote: Tyler Love, a 5 star OL recruit that picked Alabama over Georgia plays for Mt. Brook and in the words of "Scary Croissant" I hope one of the Bucs takes their helmet off and sticks it up Love's ass.)
Dreamland Barbecue in Birmingham, Alabama because JD and "Big Daddy" say it's real good.
Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer: 'Bama fans- the GOOD and the bad.

It's official. ESPN's Gollege Gameday show will be broadcasting live from "the Quad" in Tuscaloosa, Alabama Saturday morning. I'm not sure of Georgia's record when Gameday shows up but I do know back in 2002, during the Bulldogs' magical run, they were in Tuscaloosa as well and that worked out pretty well. In that game though I think both Georgia and Alabama had better teams than they do now. This means I have to get another flag now and I'm sure Donnie and Shane, being the early risers they are, will both be thrilled to know that we have to get up real early to make it to the set seeing as how the show kicks off at 9:00 AM central time. It should be a lot of fun.
I hope this game doesn't turn out like that one did...
