A lot of Georgia fans have started to question this year's expectations and it possibly being a National Championship or bust type season. For that to happen obviously you need to get past Alabama. John Fricke and Hugh Douglas discuss if this season really is about just one team or not.

Hugh explains that Alabama has already used their get-out-of-jail-free cards against Georgia. 

"Alabama has been a thorn in your side. That is the team you have had the most trouble against. It's like the student trying to beat the master and the master has one little trick left up his sleeve," says Hugh. "That has been the story for Georgia. Going into this season, the third time has to be the charm. You've seen all the tricks and it shouldn't be a surprise and that's the thing that has people thinking that this is Georgia's year to get over that hump."

John Fricke feels Georgia has had the talent, but Bama still has their number.

"It's a national chamionship caliber team, they have depth, speed, and size. It's the way they've lost to Alabama in these two games"

Hugh thinks that the way Alabama lost last season gives them even more hope. 

"Now you have a blueprint. You're disecting that Clemson game, looking at every aspect to take away something you can use. That's a teaching tool, how do you get to Alabama"
