Bama-Florida Blows up Social Media
This year's clash of SEC Championship Game favorites lived up to the preseason hype. In arguably one of the greatest games ever, Alabama vs. Florida set social media on fire. The battle of SEC rivals came down to the wire and the internet ate up every minute, every second and every play of the game.
Starting in the first quarter when the Crimson Tide's offense came out firing on all cylinders, it was looking like a blowout. By the end of the first quarter, even I was confident Alabama was going to run away with the game.
Florida's defense couldn't stop Alabama's offense from imposing its will early on. Some Gator fans were calling for the firing of defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.
On the Alabama side of things, after quarterback Bryce Young threw three first quarter touchdowns, he looked well onto a career in his road start in the SEC.
Things would change in the second half as Florida quarterback Emory Jones led a 99-yard touchdown drive to pull the Gators within five. Then 'Bama fans gave Alabama defensive coordinator Pete Golding the same harsh treatment Grantham received in the first half.
It was nice to see someone recognize how well Florida played against the number one team after the doubters early in the game.
As a Alabama fan, I walked away from the game with mixed emotions, some positive and some negative. The son of Martin Houston (host of The Martin Houston Show and former Alabama fullback) Xavier Houston, shared his thoughts on Facebook on his X's and O's Sports Podcast page.
