The Crimson Elephant verdict

Given the opposition, and the obvious “purpose” of this contest, several segments that are usually included in the “Crimson Crossover” have been eliminated this week.

With the acceptance and understanding that both Alabama and Georgia State fans have about the upcoming (homecoming) game in Tuscaloosa, insulting the intelligence of the reader with “in-depth details” would simply be preposterous. The writing is on the wall…in rather big letters.
In respect to Saturday’s game, the verdict is quite obvious. Alabama will cruise to an easy victory, while the Georgia State Panthers will receive a nice check for their time and effort.

College football is a business, and right or wrong, games like these are simply part of the business. Every major program in the nation makes the "exchange" at least twice a season, and October 5 just happens to be one of those times for the Crimson Tide.

Alabama 56
*Georgia State 0
