Pres. Donald Trump plans to attend Alabama-Georgia title game
Jan 07 2018
President Donald Trump is expected to be in attendance at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Monday for the College Football Playoff Championship Game between Georgia and Alabama, according to a White House official, per CNN's Kaitlan Collins, Jeff Zeleny and Kevin Liptak.
Now he is going to a party to watch the game Monday night and will be the only one there supporting the Crimson tide.
"There is definitely the meat and potatoes that we both know, but there are also some alternative parts that neither one of us know". "I think the atmosphere in the building will be as unhinged as we've seen in any championship event in any sport just because of the Georgia proximity to Atlanta and Alabama's fans traveling in there".
Much attention has been paid to Nick Saban's 11-0 record against former assistants who face him as head coaches.
Fans wanting to cheer on Georgia or Alabama alongside more than 70,000 of their closest friends still have plenty of options.
Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who is in his first season after spending the past 17 years in the National Football League, isn't putting too much of an emphasis on the fact veteran Tide defenders such as lineman Da'Ron Payne, linebacker Rashaan Evans and defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick started their college careers working under Smart. There is a lot to look at there and wonder how that could impact them. "You study their players and study their scheme". And once again, the game is being played in the heart of SEC country.
Second-year Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney sounded far more intrigued by the situation and has been all ears this week when Smart speaks. "I'm proud of the fact that Kirby has done a great job".
Perhaps no coach has ever done as good of a job as Saban, but for the first time since arriving at Alabama, the 66-year-old will have to win a national championship without Smart. There were some reads I could've made better.
"We had an unbelievable crowd", Fox said. I turned the ball over a couple of times. He will do so having coached a lot of national champs, whether they wore crimson or red and black. But you better believe they will struggle to move it offensively against the Bulldogs.
