SEC Championship Game primer

Clayton CoffmanAnalyst IDecember 2, 2008
No. 1 Alabama. No. 2 Florida. I can't recall a bigger conference championship game in the last ten years than this one. The old school Tide; with there power running game and incredible defense. The new age Gators; with there unstoppable offense and incredible defense. It's a classic matchup of power v. speed. Florida's Tim Tebow has his team primed for a dominant finish, while Alabama's John Parker Wilson is hoping the Tide can continue its dominating, old-school type of ball. Nick Saban's turnaround of a college powerhouse, in just his second season, is remarkable. He is, undoubtedly, a great coach; even if he can be a scumbag sometimes. Urban Meyer has the deepest team in the nation. His squad performs brilliantly in all three phases. This Saturday's game looks to be one of the greatest of all time. I hope it lives up to the hype.
