Georgia Bulldogs an Early Favorite to Win National Football Title


An insurance executive, Scott G. Sink brings more than three decades of experience to his position as a senior executive vice president with McGriff, Seibels, and Williams in Birmingham, Alabama. A graduate of the University of Georgia, Scott G. Sink enjoys following the Georgia Bulldogs football team.

Coming off a stellar season that saw the football team fall just short in a heartbreaking national championship game, the Bulldogs are considered one of the early favorites to win the 2018 national title. According to ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI) projections, as of April 2018, the Bulldogs are ranked No. 3 in the country, behind top-ranked Clemson University and second-ranked University of Alabama.

According to the FPI projections, the Bulldogs are favored in each of their 12 regular-season games in the 2018 season, and it seems likely that Georgia and Alabama will meet in the SEC conference title game, setting up a rematch of a contest won by the Bulldogs in 2017. Though Georgia is ranked behind Alabama in the national rankings, ESPN prognosticates that Georgia will win the SEC conference title.

The Historic Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion in Greece


Scott G. Sink is a Birmingham, Alabama-based insurance executive who guides a team of 60 property & casualty insurance professionals at McGriff, Seibels & Williams, Inc. With a passion for travel, Scott G. Sink has visited locations such as Istanbul, Rome, and Athens with his family. 

In addition to the Acropolis and its adjoining museum, Athens offers a number of nearby historic sites, including Delphi and the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. Situated 45 miles south of the capital, the 5th century BC temple sits poised at a vantage point above the Aegean Sea. It was traditionally visited by seamen and coastal inhabitants in the hopes of appeasing the much feared god of the sea through worship and animal sacrifice. 

The architect Ictinus (or Iktinos) oversaw construction of a building with 16 massive Doric columns. These marble columns were gently tapered and fuller at the base than at the top, creating a sense of height and elegance. Fifteen of the columns remain standing to this day, with the remaining one housed at the British Museum in London. 

The hexastyle temple also featured a frieze that portrayed the classical myth Theseus and the Battle of Centaurs. Of the numerous original marble sculptures, the remnants are now largely exhibited at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. One piece of later vandalism is also extant: the poet Lord Byron’s name is carved on the base of a column, dating from his 1810 tour of Europe.
