Joel Klatt sized up Georgia this season, and figured the Bulldogs had their best chance to take down Alabama, and if they couldn’t, it would be a tall order going forward.

“For Georgia, this was their year,” Klatt said during a segment with Colin Cowherd. “If they weren’t beating this Alabama team with this roster with the roster that they had… They had to do it.”

Cowherd made a Georgia comparison to the LSU national championship team in 2019, and also a similar team that Clemson had that took down Alabama at the end of the 2016 season.

Cowherd made the point that it’s still impressive that Alabama is in the conversation each year, and these other programs build up to a point of taking down the Crimson Tide, usually with a veteran quarterback.
