    Perhaps because in the early years of the SEC, Georgia had to compete with Georgia Tech, while Alabama only had to compete with Auburn?

    I am pretty sure Texas and USC have several national titles. They should have more though especially USC. You are right.

    Georgia is the third biggest state in the South. They have simply underachieved and Alabama has ridiculously overachieved.

    Coaching. Having two of the best coaches of all time.
    "Alabama's cornerbacks don't impress me one bit. They're overrated. Real men don't play zone defense and we'll show them a thing or two come January 1."

    Miami WR Lamar Thomas, the weeks before the 1993 Sugar Bowl national title game.

    Not all of the best recruits in Georgia can (or want to) go to... well.... Georgia.

    Right, and the committed fan base that the success of Bryant created there.

    ECDawg is right though. Georgia is not quite the most egregious example of underachievement in the college football world. Perhaps USC, Texas, Penn State and Ohio State are all worse. Ohio has more people than Georgia but Ohio State has no real in state competition at all. They should never be out of the top five.

    A lot of the Rust Belt is gloomy for sure. Crapitalism has absolutely devastated the Midwest. Columbus is not as bad as a lot of places up there though. It has held up better than most of Ohio and Michigan.

    Because Alabama was football smart enough to hire Bear Bryant, from Fordyce, Arkansas, and Georgia wasn't that football smart. Neither was Arkansas.
