Georgia is the top team in the country – and the current SEC Champions – but this conference and sport have been dominated by the team from Tuscaloosa for the better part of the last 15 years. The Dawgs may be on top, but Alabama is still the program in which all others are measured against in college football.

It’s incredibly dangerous to insinuate that their reign may be ending, but things are certainly trending in a precarious direction for the Tide. They are not in the College Football Playoff field for just the second time since its implementation, and are expected to lose a huge amount of talent to the NFL Draft this offseason.
