Can UGA maintain the edge?  Me thinks Bama is coming out second half to put on a clinic.  Damn fine game so far, and UGA is playing lights out except for one big break play on D.

I think Bama has the better team... I also think they've shown a few weaknesses after Auburn, of all teams... Swift or Holyfield can do anything Auburn's backfield or screen sets can do, and better.

UGA can pull it off... Bama is in for their first fight of the season.

    The back of the rock said 31-28 Bama and had some depiction of a foot and clock?  My gut says 41-28 Bama.

Congrats to both teams. It was a great game between the two bests teams in the country. I think it was a story book finish with Jalen Hurts replacing an injured Tua and leading Alabama to victory.

I don't understand Georgia's decision for the fake punt on 4th and 11 with four minutes left. Were they desperate to give Fields a big time moment so he won't transfer?

Just dumb. They were fooling no one, literally.  Seems every mortal coach has one of those moments, and this was his.

That fake punt......that's the worst call I've seen in recent memory.  It wasn't just a bad call, it was awful on multiple levels.
1 - you're on the 50
2 - you have your athletic backup QB as an upback *red flag for Bama
3 - it was 4th and 11
4 - you call a run fake while needing 11 yards
5 - Bama was in safe return - call a time out or take a delay of game



It honestly handed the game to Bama on a platter.

That was a very draining game.  The stadium is very loud, a lot of that because it's inside of course, and some because the fans were split and both sides were loud.  They announced attendance at over 77K, but there were a lot of empty seats, maybe folks were in the concourse or something.  The most amazing thing was that hot dogs were $2.  The circular big screen is pretty amazing.  It was misting rain so the roof was closed.  I think it almost always is closed.

There are a ton of different food options, the bars were all closed due to conference rules.

The trains coming back were stuffed with people.  I walked to a station west of the stadium so I could get on one.  They didn't even open the doors at the station east of the stadium.

I had "nosebleed" seats in a corner because they were the cheapest I could find, still $330.  We had a decent view though at times I had no idea who had the football without looking at the screen.  It was almost like watching on TV at times.  I thought that a bit odd.

Congrats to Bama. You guys are in the midst of the greatest run in modern CFB history.  I hope you are enjoying it.  It is pretty damn impressive from here.
This sequel hurts worse than parts one and two. I think Kirby thought his d had no legs left on that punt and he made a rookie mistake by not calling a TO after it was obvious the Tide knew something was coming. He is still learning but he has the Dawgs ahead of schedule. I have been telling everyone who would listen that I thought UGA was a year away from matching up man to man with Bama but it did not look like that last night. UGA controlled that game for an eternity.  Wait 'till next year, Crimson Toads!

Still stinging from that one, especially after last year.  That's twice I thought we had 'em, but they just won't stay "had".

If it had to shake down that way, I'm glad that Jalen Hurts got his moment in the spotlight, especially after showing so much character and class after last year's National Championship game.  I thought that would always be his "finest hour," but now he's topped it.

I know that he needs to transfer.  His stated goal is that he wants to play in the NFL...and to do that, he needs to wind up his college career with one more good year as a starter somewhere.  (Of course, he's got "leading Alabama to the national championship game twice" already on his resume.)  You have to figure that Tagovailoa will remain the starter after he heals up, so Jalen really needs to transfer somewhere HE can be the starter.  And he's got one more year of eligibility.  Talk is (here in Birmingham) that Dan Mullen's coming after him real hard to come play at Florida.  And I'm seeing reports that he's considering Ohio State and Oklahoma. 

I have to admit, it would be a little sad to see him playing against Alabama for someone else...especially another SEC team.  But he's gotta do what he's gotta do, and I wish him luck wherever he winds up.
