Georgia coach Kirby Smart says SEC more equal than ever

Smart, who served as Nick Saban's defensive coordinator at Alabama from 2008-15 prior to taking over at Georgia, pointed to the Crimson Tide's close games this season.

Kirby Smart knows a little bit about national championships. I think everybody's intention is that it's totally fair, and they do it with great integrity and honesty in terms of how they pick, but I think as long as it's subjective, somebody is going to have an opinion of maybe how it could have been done another way.

It took two overtimes for Georgia to finally beat Oklahoma and claim its spot in the national championship game.

"I have great respect for the office of the President of the United States, and it would be an honor, whoever was in that position, if they chose to come to see the College Football National Championship Game", Saban said. He became the head coach at Colorado State before the 2012 season, leading the school to a 22-16 record over three seasons, including two bowl berths, to earn the job at Florida.

"Ms. Helminsky was my music teacher, and if it wasn't for her, I might not have been successful in life because she gave me a D in music when I wouldn't get up and sing because I was shy, and my dad made me turn my basketball uniform in for getting a D and took me to the coal mines in West Virginia and we went down 527 feet and said this is where you're going to end up if you don't get an education". Every team we played, I think SC was much better this year than anybody gave them credit for, Kentucky, same way, Missouri had a great finish.

That role outside of the X's and O's of football has helped Velasco form relationships with the players on the current team.

The 13-0 UCF Knights are acting like they're college football's national champions. "I kind of live through these guys now".

"I don't know that they are vulnerable".

USA astronaut John Young dies at age 87
Young had been due to command a 1986 flight that was cancelled after the explosion of the shuttle Challenger earlier that year. He said Young, a former Navy test pilot, was special. "He was in every way the 'astronaut's astronaut.' We will miss him".

Also, it would be pretty weird if Georgia's coach was out there telling the media that his side was about to face an unbeatable foe.

Flashing a smile and embracing defensive players like Reggie Ragland, Reuben Foster and Jonathan Allen were two of the last three things Kirby Smart did in his final game at the University of Alabama.

Both Georgia and Alabama are expected to arrive in Atlanta on Friday night.

"I told him that he got all those reps in practice and never got hit", Hurts said. Instead, Muschamp took the head coach job at Florida, where he went 28-21 in four seasons. "I just love seeing the way the line has played as a whole this year".

Monday will mark the biggest moment for Georgia since it won the 1980 Sugar Bowl to win its last national championship.

"Once the game starts you're into the game".

The main reason, he said, might be that Alabama isn't the Alabama that everyone has grown accustomed to.
