The game we've been waiting on

ATLANTA -- No more waiting. It's here.

Alabama vs. Florida, for the SEC championship and the right to play in the BCS National Championship Game.

Thank goodness for the Georgia Dome, too. The weather in Atlanta is nasty. It's bitterly cold, and the wind is howling.

But inside, it's heating up as a few of the fans are starting to file in. The first player on the field in uniform to stretch and warm up was Alabama kicker Leigh Tiffin.

That's fitting, too, because I think a long field goal from either Tiffin or Florida's Caleb Sturgis may be the difference in this game.

The Gators are wearing all white and are also sporting their new white helmets with the different looking "F" emblem on the side, the same helmets they wore last week against Florida State.

Even though it's frigid outside the Georgia Dome, the atmosphere was still as festive as ever. Anybody selling propane could have made a fortune.

The Houndstooth patterns were out in force among the Alabama fans. And, yes, there is such a thing as a Houndstooth beer hugger.
