National Title Tilt Is Tonight

January 10, 2022

Tonight in Indianapolis (oh did  the NFL Indy Colts flop!) top ranked and defending champion, Alabama, is a near field goal underdog, vs fellow SEC’er, Georgia, in the national title tilt.

‘Bama is seeking a 7th title under its great coach (not necessarily college pig’s greatest, as Sean McDonough declared after a “mere” semi win, if they/he wins tonight, we can, as Joan Rivers might have said, “talk.”), Nick Saban.

Alas there were names such as Bud Wilkinson, Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy and legendary Alabama coach, Paul “Bear” Bryant who won 5 (not 6 as you will hear and see tonight–his ‘Bama teams of ’66 and ’77 were rooked in the voting by Notre Dame. In ’73 Notre Dame “New Years Eved” them and that sad memory yields– the following equation: shaving cream and taunting equals NO PIE and while it is tough sans recording space, on we must go), thus no title but they count it.

In ’64, largely the opposite, as in Joe Namath’s last ‘Bama game, Texas won, but A.P. voting, which I count as sacrosanct, though the race for #1 was/is always a perversion of an already system, which rages out of control a “good” (try bad) 35 years after superb studio host, Jim Lampley made that statement, was conducted before the bowl games.

Thus ‘Bama has 12 crowns (4 with Barack “O””Bama” in as U.S. President and under Saban–did he, Mr. Obama ever arrive too soon, as we need he, a good, eloquent leader, though he does glorify such as ESPN, whose “given all” Fowler/Herbstreit, duo is “on” tonight’s tilt. 

They won 2 more post Obama, the aforementioned 5 under Paul “Bear” Bryant and one under Gene Stallings in ’92 led by former North Rockland High School star, Derrick Owens Lassic.

 

Georgia, denied by Alabama in the classic ’17 season, overtime title tilt is seeking its second crown (the other in ’80) and as was the case with the Atlanta Braves, I think they will get their second title tonight.

Note to Jane Pauley-it was incorrect to say the ATLANTA Braves won their 4th World Series. It was the franchise’s 4th, however they won 1 each, when located in  Boston (1914) and then Milwaukee (1957).

Prediction: Georgia 26 Alabama 17
