Alabama football not anxious about emotional letdown ahead of national championship

Alabama football not anxious about emotional letdown ahead of national championship

President Donald Trump plans to attend the College Football National Championship Game on Monday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the cast of DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart's quest to keep the Bulldogs on top of the SEC.

"This game isn't really about me". He recounted the time in 2013 he painted his chest red and watched from the student section as the Bulldogs played LSU. Otherwise, Smart has shielded his players from interviews before Saturday's media day at Philips Arena.

Both Georgia and Alabama are expected to arrive in Atlanta on Friday night.

On every offensive first down or big play, there was a let out of emotion.

"We've won games around here, so we know how to handle situations like this", said Michel, who scored the game-winning touchdown on a direct snap.

Alabama football stewed over its national championship loss to Clemson for a full year, so seeing the Crimson Tide come out fired up shouldn't have been a surprise. We've just got to move forward. "I don't know what to tell you".

The players all understand that Monday's game is the most important game of the year. We've only had one undefeated season, I think, in all the time I've been around. Smart coached on four national championship teams at Alabama, but those titles belong to Saban. Alabama has played in it nine times since then, Georgia six.

Saban is 11-0 when coaching against his former assistants. The Bulldogs have not won a championship since 1980.

"Emotionally I'm excited about the opportunity".

"Don't be in a hurry to get a sack, more than making sure you're maintaining rush lanes and force him to be a pocket guy with the pocket collapsing around him", Florida coach Dan Mullen said.
