SEC Championship week is finally here
Days 'til Florida: 5

I don't know how my bosses will expect me to get any work done this week leading up to the biggest SEC Title game ever. Haha. Oh well, guess I could do a little work this week, if nothing else.

I watched the line released yesterday at the Wynn in Las Vegas start out at Florida -7.5, and then, within 3 hours, jump to Florida -10. Ridiculous, if you ask me. I couldn't believe how much Florida was bet. But, y'know what? I have forever and ever gone against the public. If the line was Florida -7.5, they're begging you to take Florida, and still are. If you were a betting person, and you thought something was fishy about that line...well, it is.

I am curious though - when's the last time that a consensus #1 team was a double digit underdog on a neutral field? Or...y'know what...toss out that neutral field thing. When's the last time a #1 team was a double digit underdog ever? Just seems weird to me.

Next up, Florida could be without two backup defensive linemen for the game, along with Percy Harvin being iffy. Depth has been an issue for a lot of teams against Bama's rushing game this year - could this be some foreshadowing?

Don't let the fact that Percy Harvin is hurt fool you - they've got 4 or 5 guys just like him. All of them run about a 4.0 forty and are slicker than motor oil on a hardwood floor. This will be a VERY interesting game because of the contrasting styles. Alabama has speed - but theirs is on defense, while Florida's is mostly on offense. It should be very well-balanced.

Since it's Christmas time, and I know you're lookin for that gift for your favorite Bama fan - I've got an idea. There's a new company out there that does grill toppers, which means you can cook the name of your team directly on the meat on the grill. Now, for a tailgater like myself and the rest of my family, this is the PERFECT Christmas present. If you want to check em out, go to this address - or just click on the picture ad on the right side of the page.

Oh yeah, and at some point last night, we hit over 1,000,000 page hits. When I started this blog 2 years ago, I had no clue we would reach that many. Hell, I didn't even know that I'd still be writing in it on a regular basis. Probably wouldn't if you guys didn't keep me goin. So for that, I say thank you. Alabama fans kick some serious behind. :-) Roll Tide guys!
