The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Black Pot Region: (5) Chili vs. (12) Grits & Grillades

A No. 1 in any other bracket takes on one of the more underrated Cajun breakfast treats.

No. 5 Chili

During the discussions of seeding this bracket, Poseur pointed out that for anybody from any other school doing this chili is likely much higher in the pecking order. Not here, but anywhere else. And let's face it, it's not like you're going to complain about a good bowl of chili at a tailgate.

No. 12 Grits & Grillades

Simple, elegant. Chunks of beef (or occasionally pork -- I find everybody's aunt or grandma had their own way of doing this), smothered in a delicious gravy and served over grits. You bring this to a breakfast tailgate and you're bringing home championship gold.
