Merry Christmas!

From my family to yours, I want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas.

Thanks for a great year and a great season. It's been a blast.

I'll be around after the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl on Sunday night weighing in on the Clemson-Kentucky game, and it's a veritable bowl bonanza from there with nine more games involving SEC teams over the next 11 days.

Of course, it all culminates with Alabama taking on Texas on Jan. 7 in the Citi BCS National Championship game. I'll be in Pasadena that entire week providing wall-to-wall coverage on the Crimson Tide's quest for their 13th national title.

In the meantime, sit back and savor this joyous season, hug the ones you love and spread the cheer.

Merry Christmas!
