    Agreed. Regardless of whether or not my team wins, this has been a phenomenal football game.

    I can't take much more of this!

    WTF? Spike the ball and throw it twice into the endzone!

    Such a frustrating end. Great game, though.

    Those motherfuckers had better beat Notre Dame is all I'm going to say.



    Still bullshit that UGA will end up playing in the Capital One Bowl (probably) when we were one play away from playing for the championship. Only in the SEC would that happen. We obviously showed we can play with the big boys with that one, soft schedule or no.

    My guess is that it was because A&M beat Alabama by keeping them on their heels.

    Still, that's the best football game I've seen in years. Sucks to lose it, but that holy shit that was insane to watch.

    Yeah sucks to lose but there's no shame in that game. Wish the D had held up better against the run but we gave it everything we had and came as close as you can get.

    It will be the Cotton Bowl, but I agree with the sentiment, even as I'm doing my best not to be a sore loser. It would have been one thing if the SEC loser had gotten pushed around, but it really stings that Georgia was thisclose to taking the SEC only to wind up out of a BCS bowl while a team they beat goes to one. As much as I thought that idea kind of sucked before, I think it's completely indefensible now.

    I don't know Oregon State's record that year, but that kind of thing is pretty common. Rutgers is probably going to go to a relatively shitty bowl this year instead of a BCS bowl, because the Big East blows. Hell, Georgia Tech could swing between the Orange Bowl and not playing in a bowl game period this year. Maybe the severity of the drop is unusual, but that doesn't even rank (IMO) compared to dropping from ten seconds away from a BCS Championship shot to the Cotton Bowl. Especially when you lose in a conference championship game (not regular season like that one you mentioned) and get beat out for a BCS bid by a team that lost to you and is in your division.

    I wouldn't have traded positions with Florida, but it still sucks.

    Wisconsin is off to a good start against Nebraska. Game just started and the score is 14 to zip. I'd like to see the Cornhuskers win this one.

    No game that good should end with the losing team on the field watching the clock run out.

    Yeah, that was gut wrenching. It took me a second to figure out why no one was doing anything as the clock ran down. Then they showed Murray's face, and the look he had made me realize they were helpless.

    Wisconsin is rolling all over Nebraska. Half-time score 42-10.

    Also, from Saban:

    ""It would be a crying shame if Georgia doesn't get to go to a BCS bowl game. They played a tremendous game out there. That was a great football game, by both teams. It came right down to the last play."

    The three-and-out possession up 28-25 is going to haunt Georgia for a long, long time. At the very least, you need to take time off the clock and flip field position.

    Roll Tide Smith!! What a great game, down to the wire. Dawg fans should be mad at Bobo for being Bobo. Ga. has some great talent and almost won it. Either way the SEC is dominant again. This is the best GA team I have seen in at least 5 years and was probably Mark's only chance at holding crystal. Mr. G there is no reason to slam Bama bringing up Harvey and the teabagger. Ga. has regular problems with players like Crowell and the drunk guy who broke in a girls apartment to pass out drunk on her couch a few years back. It was nice to see Russ with his jersey and red collar today moving into his mascot role.
