Both defenses were extremely hard to score on. That was a heavy weight battle. UGA mentally pushes themselves to win the game after the 4Q Stetson fumble and Bama TD. And it was a fumble. UGA dominated at that point. Tide will be hard to stop in 2022 season and should be a favorite to win it all. I hope UGA is there with them. These two programs are incredible. Go Dawgs!
Sweep the Leg - I have to agree. Only a few coaches have truly dominated. I could see 4 or 5 teams trading blowsbthatvare on par with each other. BTW, congrats to the Vols for a somewhat surprising season. Most had the vols winning 4 to 5 games. Got hosed with that call in the bowl game.
AFan - I posted this earlier and it needs to be repeated. We were glad that Bama was the opponent. Not out of spite or revenge. But out of a deeper reverence for Saban and Alabama. To be the best, you got to beat the best. I hope our teams continue to dominate. Congratulations on new graduation SEC champions this year. Well earned. Let's do it again next year. Go Dawgs!
Incredible. Many tears of joy across bulldog nation. To Bama fans -we were glad it was Bama on the opposite side of the field ... Not for revenge ... Not out of spite... BUT out of deep reverence for Saban and Alabama. To be the best, you have to beat the best. Having Bama as the opponent was special. Go Dawgs!
Love the all SEC final for the NT. Would rather face Saban and Bama than any other team. To be the best, got to beat the best. Go Dawgs!
Stetson Bennett reflects on sensational Orange Bowl, speaks about ‘words coming out from other people’
Played well tonight. Gutsy kid that is a baller. Glad we get a chance to play Bama. To be the best, got to beat the best. Bama is the best ... there is little doubt.
Obvious targeting. Smoke is all athletic ability and zero football IQ. Dumbass can't help himself. I've seen him ejected out of 2 UGA games. Smoke cost Auburn dearly today. Auburn should be happy to see players like this leave. As a UGA fan, too bad he is gone. Dumbass.
Ultimately, it can come down to QB mistakes, and that's why I think Mighigan will win. As phenomenal a story that Stetson is - unfortunately against very top competition,we need an elite qb to be a difference maker. Bama and FL last year. Bama this year. No margin for error. Even against FL this year ... 2 picks. Hope I'm wrong, but gut feeling is Michigan will pull it out at the end due to QB commanding a late drive. Stet will throw a pick 6 or turn the ball over.
Peak Saban? Did you read the article? None of the players are being disrespectful or running mouths on winning. The stated that Bama was a wakeup call. Bama outplayed them. Go back and train and trust the system. It was respectful.
Good to see he is okay and wish him the best. Gators embarrassed again in post season. Wow, did not see a collapse coming for them this season. Time will tell if Napier is a good hire, but Gator nation should like this hire.
Hard to get the People Republic to pay when they deny all culpability and want release any statistics related to their own situation.
...and then was run out of coaching by Mark Richt. Wonder how Fat Phil's relationship was with Johnny Majors? We will miss Phil as an AD at Tennessee. LOL!
Is UGA lucky to be in the final 4? That was a total beat down and embarrassing loss. The narrative between Bama and UGA has changed dramatically. These programs are light-years apart when it comes to the moment of truth with titles on the line.
After Saban and Bama carved up the Dawgs and was by far the better team...looks like Michigan is not the overrated team in this match-up. The narrative has changed quickly.
As Kennelly has stated before when talking about FSU, each season is unique. Maybe he should apply that to this game. All I know is both teams have great players, great coaches, and something to prove and UGA has been much more impressive and a complete team this year..which is more telling than games played years ago.
Neither did Kirby Smart. First year will be a transition, then things should kick in.
@ 17Tide - agree. game is not played on paper or in chat rooms. Bama schemes and adapts better than any team out there. I like UGA's chances, but it will not surprise me if Saban wins yet another SEC title. Glad Bama beat Auburn - really set's up this Saturday. If UGA wants to be the best - we have to beat the best.
Bryce Young vs. Stetson Bennett IV: Call it ironic or just call it a surprisingly fantastic QB battle
@ DieselNova - comparing apples to oranges when you look at 2017 UGA vs 2021 UGA as each team and year is unique. 2021 final chapter has not been written. But let's look at it statistically: 2017 Total offense @ 435.5 yds/gm - 176.9 Pass - 258.4 Rush 2021 Total offense @ 442.3 yds/gm - 240 Pass - 202 Rush 2021 much more balanced Defense: 2017 total Defense @ 294.9 - 168.9 Pass - 126 Rush 2021 total defense @ 230.9 - 151.5 Pass - 79.4 Rush Both teams very good!
@ davestwin - LOL! Well played!
Love the fact that it's Bama! In order to be the best, you have to beat the best.
@ mlc0808, how do you figure?
Rivalry game at Auburn - anything can happen. Auburn played their best game.
Parity. Bigsby not getting down cost Auburn 40 seconds and a massive win over Bama. You give Bama some life, they will make you pay as Saban has installed the heart of a champion in that program. Fantastic game!
@ CocknFire2112 - some of still remember the Goff/Donnan days. Goff had a 10-2 season that quickly turned into several 6-5 seasons. Donnan recruited well and rebuilt the foundations. He just missed hitting it out of the park. While his teams were inconsistent - there was improvement and he left the program in better shape than he found it.
Wheels fell off for Mullen. But due to his past success - think FL was very quick to pull the trigger.
Kirby Smart updates status of Georgia WRs George Pickens, Dominick Blaylock ahead of Charleston Southern game
How did Smart play the wrong qb in 2018? If you can't beat out the man in front of you in practice, regardless of your potential upside, then you assume the role as the backup.
Bama has proven time and time again that they can elevate to that higher level for championships. Hope the Dawgs can do the same.
Very true! Glad we will be playing Bama. In order to be the best ....
Give Heupel his due! Incredible coaching and team building with all the dumpster fire and transfer activities. Vols have improved significantly as the season has progressed. Dawgs need to have their minds right and be ready for a good fight.
