Re: Georgia Gets Guys ...

……….it’s apparent Georgia has the guys, but the Bulldogs have had the guys before, what they need is a win over Alabama to get the yoke off their neck that they themselves help strap on. 8) 8) 8)

Re: 6--8--10--12--16

As long as these governing bodies continue to use a “bid” method of selecting teams to fill brackets there will be controversy and cries of unfairness, incorrectness, bias and “We were Robbed!!!” :evil: :evil: :evil: Simple solution…….
