ATHENS, Ga - The Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide are on opposite sides of this year's SEC Championship game, but UGA President Michael Adams and Alabama's coach agree on one topic.
Adams and Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban are on the same page when it comes to the fate of the SEC Championship game loser.

Saban said it first when he noted that the loser of Saturday's game at the Georgia Dome would likely fall out of consideration for a BCS Bowl. The winner is expected to face Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game.
"It's not really a great scenario," said Saban. "You play your way into the championship game, which means you're the best team in your division. It doesn't seem quite right."
When asked about Saban's comments at a Wednesday press conference, Adams said he's let the Southeastern Conference know how he feels about the issue.
"I share Coach Saban's views in that regard," said Adams. "Both of these teams have accomplished a great deal."
Adams then jokingly gave his game prediction.
"I hope Alabama doesn't end up in the Capital One Bowl," said Adams with a smile. "They deserve better than that."
Alabama is currently ranked #2 in the BCS rankings. Georgia is right behind them at #3. The two will play in the Georgia Dome at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
The winner is projected to play #1 ranked Notre Dame in Miami on January 7th.
Most experts project that the loser will fall out of consideration for a major bowl such as the Sugar in New Orleans. Some predict the loser of the SEC Championship game will fall to the Capital One Bowl in Orlando.
The Florida Gators, who were shut out of the SEC Championship game because of their loss to Georgia, are the team most experts are picking to go the Sugar Bowl.
After hearing Saban's complaints, Florida Coach Will Muschamp had no sympathy for the Alabama coach.
"I can switch and go to Atlanta if he doesn't want to play the Dawgs," said Muschamp. "Be careful what you ask for, Nick."
