    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?

    All I'll say is thank god there are no walks in NCAA football. It's going to be odd. Bama has lots of talent but the one weakness will be "Guy" with the thumbs on the sticks.

    I don't know brother... All that talent, all you have to do is play smart. Don't turn the ball over. The computer will win half the battle for you! Lol

    Damn, that is a hard one to pick. If third is as good as advertised, playing against the best rated team on the game, it should be epic! I chose Bama just because its going to be hard to beat Guy and the cpu......just sayin!

    That's a tough one...

    I don't know who has more pressure on them.

    The guy with God's team or the dude whose stick skills are impeccable?

    Nice debate question for the crew...

    damn, i really don't think i played third in HK, all this stick skill talk has me very intrigued in playing him. As for Guy, I feel like I have played him but can't don't recall the outcomes.

    As for who has more pressure, I'm going to go with Guy just because he has a great team that should take control of any game, but if this was a question of who is putting more pressure on themselves then it'd have to go to third as I know Guy expects less than everyone else. Maybe this is a tactic of his and he'll come out firing.

    I've played both. I don't remember but I bet we split the series.

    It wasn't fair with Guy because I was the Pats and he was the Dolphins. Lol
