I must clarify. Thirty years ago, I would have named UGA the number one in the country. But changes--that had to happen--has dropped it some.
I belonged to the Georgia/South Carolina Editorial Writers Association for several years. I would always get up early and walk to Sanford.

I am really amazed at some of you guys.
The most difficult position to learn in college football are offensive line positions. Coach Bryant said it best: "You are never going to be a consistent winner until you can throw 21 and 22-year-old men against 18 and 19-year-olds." I completely agree.

Saban is a great coach. Now hold on Gumps, he may even be better than Bear, and that is saying something.
Since Saban's hoarding talent has become a topic, consider this. He is operating under an 85-player rule just like everyone else.
Bear operated under the 120-player and up rule. In short, ...
