What do people think of AL-GA on Monday night?

The spread is GA -3.

Georgia is a great team, especially on defense. But I can't get around the fact that Alabama just sliced and diced that defense to the tune of 41 points.

How did Alabama win a month ago?

By crowding seven and eight into the box and daring Stetson Bennett IV (Great name, right? Should have been behind center at an Ivy, before joining his father's law firm after graduation) into beating them over the top.

By having their Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback throw deeper and more often than typical. Both formulas on defense and offense can be repeated on Monday night.

Alabama lost to Texas A&M and was lucky, very lucky to beat Auburn.

But when was the last time that a widely followed high-profile team beat another by 17 points and then one month later, with nothing changed since the first meeting, was a 3-point underdog?

I will go with the Crimson Tide +3.

There is no love lost between Nick Saban and Kirby Smart, because Smart copied Saban’s secret recruiting file when he left Alabama.

I had not heard of that. Any other details floating around in the infosphere?

Awesome. Beyond the normal millions of dollars at stake, a national championship and at least a year's worth of bragging rights, we have personal, deep seated animosity.

As with so many other things these days, people seem to approach such matters tribally.

True or not, doesn't make the emotion of the rivalry less compelling.

Alabama's offense has been a surprise, after losing so many skill players to the NFL.

Bill O'Brien is the OC--former Brown Bear, HC at Penn State (tough job after the Joe Paterno bebacle), and Houston Texans.

Alabama and Georgia are loaded with elite talent.
It will be a great game.
