With the NCAA National Football Champion set to take place on Monday (January 10th), Brantley Gilbert reveals that he is ready for a Georgia Bulldogs National Championship tattoo.
According to Saturday Down South, Brantley Gilbert spoke to former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray on Sirius about getting a Georgia Bulldogs National Championship tattoo if the Bulldogs win the game. It would go on his right shoulder. “Right here, buddy, wide open,” the singer declared.
Murray went on to tell Brantley Gilbert, “Listen, it’s the year for Georgia fans to get over the hump, am I wrong? Let’s go. Braves won, Dawgs gotta win Monday night. Let’s just push through.”
In response, the country singer and songwriter stated, “Dude, I really feel like the Braves knocked out the curse. It’s game-time, baby!”
However, Gilbert also admitted that he was pretty nervous about the upcoming game for the Georgia Bulldogs. “Man, I’m nervous. Just because Alabama is Alabama. [Nick] Saban’s a beast. We can’t not acknowledge that that program is un-freakin-believable.”
Brantley Gilbert went on to declare that he hopes the Bulldogs play as they did in the previous 2021 games. “Just play like they played the rest of the season. Alabama’s whole season was riding on [the SEC Championship Game]. Maybe we didn’t have as much to lose from it. Maybe that got them geared up and they’ll come in the second time. And wear them out.”
Georgia Bulldogs Prepare to Face Off Against Alabama
Meanwhile, the Georgia Bulldogs are getting ready to face off against fellow SEC team, Alabama Crimson Tide. Georgia took on No. 2 Michigan in the Capital One Orange Bowl and won 34-11.
The Georgia Bulldogs previously lost to Alabama in the SEC Championship game in December. The SEC teams will go head-to-head once again on Monday during the National Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Following the game against Michigan, Georgia Bulldog’s nose tackle Jordan Davis spoke about the team’s performance during the Orange Bowl. “Definitely ready to get back into the film room and continue the work. The National Championship’s quickly approaching and we just have to get back and play our game. And show our people what we can do.”
Although Michigan received the Joe Moore Award, the Georgia Bulldogs didn’t seem phased about it. “We didn’t really use it as motivation,” Davis explains. “We knew they won the Joe Moore Award and were totally deserving of that. They have a great offensive line. But we just wanted to make sure that we were dominant and physical upfront. We wanted to make sure we tested them and gave them a challenge, and that was our game plan going in, being a physical, dominant front.”
