Here's the thing : Georgia is the best team Bama has faced all season, and the most balanced. Bama has shown a weakness in the secondary to a passer who can exploit it, and Aaron Murray, the national leader in passing efficiency, would seem to qualify as a candidate to do that. If Murray shows up with his mind right - Georgia wins this game. If he shows up nervous and hesitant, Bama rolls. Its that simple.
I have developed a lot of respect for UGA after their beating of Georgia Tech, but they still may not be the best team that Bama has played this year. That was probably LSU, from which Bama barely escaped with a win. However, I do see UGA with a chance against Bama, be it ever so slim. The Bulldogs are well balanced, have two outstanding running backs, and a smart, excellent passer. Bama is vulnerable to such balance. Their secondary is suspect to quick, short passes. UGA could exploit Bama in this regard. Coaching, though, is rather suspect for UGA; they can't math the Saban crew. It should be a better game than we originally expected; perhaps not a Bama execution.
