Bama vs. Georgia
Let the record show that Will Friend did not walk into this interview session wanting to talk about where he played college football: Alabama.
Yes, the man entrusted with coaching Georgia’s offensive line, whose performance may very well decide the SEC championship, is an alum of the other school.
“I can’t believe you all are asking about a bad player 20 years ago,” Friend said, laughing. “You’ve got all these good players playing in a game in four days and you’re asking about a bad one 20 years ago.”
So anyway, as a bad offensive lineman, Friend was on an Alabama team that went to three SEC championship games. But he only played in the first two. He had to sit out the third one because of a knee injury.
