Bowl season is very exciting. Host cities want excitement to lure fans in droves, teams want it to build momentum for next season, and bowl-game sponsors want it to spike sales.
History will soon be reconstructed in Porterdale.
The Newton, Alcovy and Eastside football teams all reached the playoffs in the 2012 season, and the efforts of the players who helped to get them there will be rewarded Saturday.
The first year of Region 2-AAAAAA produced several big moments throughout the 2012 season, and the runner up to the champion of the state's highest classification.
Alcovy didn't get off to the start of 2012-13 season it would hope after losing its first three and four of its first five games.
As much as I enjoyed football season for the last four months, it took me just two weeks to decide Newton is a basketball town.
As the Rotary Lombardi Awards names college football's top down lineman or linebacker tonight, Newton County will be well represented.
ATLANTA (AP) - No. 2 Alabama beats No. 3 Georgia 32-28 for SEC crown; sets up BCS title game with Notre Dame.
The Newton Rams and Alcovy Tigers squared off in a matchup of top teams in one of the state's better regions Saturday night.
While the game finished after press time, the set up was ripe with story lines. The two teams met in region play for the first time ever; Newton spent the last few years competing at the state's highest level, just missing the postseason in 2011-12; and Alcovy jumped on to the scene reaching the elite eight last year and, oh yeah, the whole area rival thing.

Nonsense. Call me biased (did the SEC Banter tagline give it away?), but the national championship kicks off Saturday at 4 p.m. in the Georgia Dome. As champions of the nation's finest football conference, the Dawgs or Tide will have an entirely legitimate claim as the best team in college football and the de facto national champion.
The 2012-13 basketball season may be just under way, but it heats up in Newton County this weekend.
Newton, Alcovy and Eastside are still trying to find their way in the new season with one game played for Eastside and three apiece for Alcovy and Newton and will have a chance to really test themselves starting Friday.
ATLANTA (AP) - The New Orleans Saints players say their bus was pelted with eggs by airport workers after they touched down in Atlanta.
This space was supposed to be reserved for Aaron Murray but he conveniently chose not to do interviews.
It's Thanksgiving and time to count our many blessings, SEC Banter style. Join me as we give thanks for the traditions that make the SEC the nation's finest football conference.
