EAST MEETS WEST In Cradle to Grave's first ever annual preseason tournament, thirdalarm's Vanderbilt Commodores take on uagrad90's Alabama Crimson Tide. In an SEC showdown, East will meet West. Thirdalarm has caught the reputation of being a dangerous opponent while Guy takes the reigns of current powerhouse Alabama. The Tide will be heavily favored to win the SEC championship and contend for the National title. Vanderbilt had the best season its had since 1915 winning 9 games. A lot of firepower in this one. Vanderbilt features a pair of the SEC's finest at WR in Jordan Matthews and Chris Boyd. Matthews caught 94 passes for 1,323 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He will be key in Vanderbilt's chances of knocking off BAMA. Alabama reloads but they bring back starting QB AJ McCarron who led the Crimson Tide to 2 consecutive titles. With deadly weapons in HB TJ Yeldon and WR Amari Cooper, this should be an exciting blow for blow, bang it out game. I think this will be a very close game that comes down to the wire. The classic ending of who has the ball last. The winner of this great battle will not get a rest. #1 seeded Georgia and BG awaits. Who do you have winning this match-up and why?
