This weekend’s big Alabama-Texas A&M clash in Tuscaloosa will grab the interest of a whole lotta Southeastern Conference football fans. And not just for the obvious “it’s a big game” reason.
Think about it.
For those SEC fans who want the league to capture yet another BCS championship — the conference’s seventh in a row — Alabama is by far the best bet to capture said title. No other SEC team has anything other than a very long shot chance of even reaching the championship game. If you want the league to remain on top, you almost have to be cheering for the Crimson Tide at this point.
But to quote Randy Travis — who must be a heckuva guy to party with — “on the other hand,” another Alabama championship would just aid Nick Saban in his “process” of building the Tide into an unstoppable juggernaut of John Calipari/Kentucky basketball proportions. SEC rivals might like title #7 for the sake of rubbing everyone else’s nose in it, but can they possibly root for Bama to pull further away from their own schools? After all, that’ll just leave Tide fans to rub every other SEC fan’s nose in it.
