It’s here. A bittersweet day – the College Football National Championship will remain the SEC, but no more games for nine months.
We’ve got recruiting to talk about in February, Spring practice in a couple months, then the energy of starting practice in August…all the while listening to why there should be a playoff/teams should never rematch for the National Championship/blah blah blah. Sounds like a bunch of non-SEC fans. How appropriate is the National Championship in the heart of SEC Country – New Orleans, LA. They say it’ll be like a home game for LSU, but we all know Bama fans travel well. For the non-jersey wearing crowd, here’s how to look good for tonight’s game:
Smathers & Branson Needlepoint Flask: Do you really need an explaination here?
Southern Marsh Gadwell Gingham Shirt: Purple with a gold duck. Royal.
Pennington & Bailes LSU Embroidered Pants and Hoof-Pick Belt: S&B’s stadium pants are an excellent way to stand out in a crowd, without being obnoxious (wear ’em with loafers). The hoof-pick belt is a must for every gentleman. You’ll wear it more than you think.
State Traditions ’13’ Gray Alabama Hat: It may be vintage after this game.
Southern Point Co. Hadley Shirt: Sharp way to support the Tide…and you always want to look sharp.
Collared Greens Chattahoochee Belt: Crimson and Silver; regimental style.
Jack Donnelly Khakis: At least look like you know what you are doing…
But – tonight is the night. A rematch of the November 5th classic. Defenses ruled, and offenses stalled. Want to talk about Bama’s kicking game?
So for tonight’s game – I’ll give the official Red Clay Soul prediction:
Bama – 31
LSU – 27
The talent level is just about even on both sides. BUT – I wouldn’t bet against Saban on his second try vs. LSU.
Let’s hear it – what do you think?
