20 year anniversary of the first SECCG

This week marks the 20th anniversary of the very first SEC Championship Game.

As some of you may recall, Alabama entered the game ranked #2 in the nation, with a punishing running game and a stifling defense. It was the 100th year of football to be played at Alabama, and as then coach Stallings said, that team attempted to set the tone for the next 100 years. It was a close thing, played in very cold Legion Field in Birmingham. The mad genius Spurrier moved the ball against what many consider to be the best Alabama defense in modern history - maybe of all college football. But the offense was up to the challenge, as Jay Barker threaded the needle and Antonio Langham finished the Gators with a Pick-Six.

A great game all around, which lead to the first post-Bryant national championship with a severe beatdown of the much feared and hyped Miami team. Here's to that team, and hoping this year's model will similarly inspired by all the greatness which preceded them and seek to inspire those who will follow.

Roll Tide!
