Damon West says Alabama, Georgia are more than football powers

07 January, 2018, 16:13 | Author: Joan Malone

Getting up for the Clemson game was easy.

On every offensive first down or big play, there was a let out of emotion.

He said it would be the 17th championship for Alabama if they win.

In less than 48 hours Alabama and Georgia will be fighting for the 2018 college football playoff national championship in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. "If anything, we look back and say, 'OK, so we got the game back that we wanted but we want to keep that same feeling from happening again for the next year'".

Now he is going to a party to watch the game Monday night and will be the only one there supporting the Crimson tide.

This is the fourth time in the Bowl Championship Series and College Football Playoff era where the eventual college football championship game participants met in basketball prior to the title game, according to ESPN. "We've done a great job of just celebrating for one night and then understanding that we've got to go back to work".

But Smart stresses the game isn't about the coaches.

West even added that Kirby Smart has as good of a chance as anyone to knock off Nick Saban and become his first assistant to ever beat them. Georgia has not been this close to a national title since the great Herschel Walker played his last game for the Bulldogs in the 1983 Sugar Bowl against Penn State. "Right now, we're just back focused and just looking forward to this next game".

Alabama played late Monday night, returned to Tuscaloosa on Tuesday and wasn't able to resume full practice until Wednesday.

Bulldogs fans, and players, will take any advantage they can get over the Crimson Tide. "It's about all of them", Saban said Saturday.

"A very emotional game. which concerns me, and I talked to the players immediately afterward about not burning any more energy or emotion on that game and moving on", Smart said earlier this week.

Both teams got the red carpet treatment upon arrival Friday.
