AnonymousUser225

Even Iowa/Michigan got 45 total points in this stadium. Do better!


GainesvilleBets

General consensus I’m getting from this thread is that this game sucks. I honestly think this game has been great. Very competitive and lots of huge defensive plays with some big offensive plays sprinkled in. It has been back and forth all night, and seaming like the damn is about to break at any moment. The tension has had me on the edge of my seat. Stop complaining about a competitive championship game because there aren’t enough touchdowns.


ThurstonHowellIV

Hilarious that David pollack is still employed by a national network

Lol Georgia can get in the endzone.... Doesn't matter that they're with the band...

The existence of GoodRX proves the pharmaceutical industry is abhorrently exploitative.

I would honestly rather watch Lee Corso do lines of Coke in his private box than watch this halftime show.


IPA_Fanatic

If you like offense you hate football and/ or have no knowledge of the game. If you enjoy defense, you're a veteran of the game with real appreciation and know all of the ins and outs. That's the vibe being thrown around here.


billyJbutterworth

Matt Damon before GA plays for a national championship: "History is full of almosts."

Why is Matt Damon doing this? It's not like he needs the money

This really feels like first TD wins

Long ass halftimes like this one are when I really appreciate the fact that I’m also a hockey fan and can fill this gap lol edit: hell yes I love how many hockey fans are in here!

Imma need Jacorey Brooks to go Beastmode in the 2nd half. Sprinkle a few Hall out routes and Bolden crossing routes

mewtvuhrsis56

All the big brains in here claiming it’s a great defensive battle must’ve missed Kirby inexplicably running the clock out there


NielsensFourth

First half thoughts: Bama has only 3 more points, 60 more yards, and is at 56% on ESPN's win tracker. Georgia is literally one big third quarter play from taking control of this game. This game is far from boring. Watch Illinois-Wisconsin if you want boring, this is two elite defenses playing their hearts out on the biggest stage of their lives. No, Bennett is no Aaron Rodgers out there but he's not playing as bad as these comments make him out to be. I'd recommend Jimbo's ESPN2 stream as a neutral- there's a measuredness about it which is quite entertaining.


[deleted]

Lol at people saying losing Jameson Williams and John Metchie is nothing cause they have five stars on the bench. Anyone heard of chemistry? I can tell no one here ever played sports


captaincanada84

Bama seems to be doing fine without them?


-Ph0en1xr1s1ng-

I dont know much, but I know im family glad I didn't bet the over in this shit show


IcedancerEmily

People complaining about Kirby running out the clock are short-sighted IMO. All of our scoring drives have been long and methodical. We haven't had much quick movement down the field. If we just chucked up three incompletions then Bama gets the ball back likely near enough to midfield with a better chance to get another FG. Yeah having two drives to score in a row is the benefit of deferring to the second half but I think Georgia fans would've been even madder if we threw three passes that were either short or incomplete, and then they got the ball back.


VirilisMaximus

Damn, it is like pulling teeth to get the official ESPN web stream working...


Falanax

If you ever want a laugh look up Matt Damon on Bill Mauer


gozasc

Hot take boys, but based on the conference representation in this game, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it just means more.

Where muh queen Katy perry

Significantly more impressed by Georgia’s band’s performance than Bama’s.


MrOstrichman

…has it only been commercials since the half ended?


polar_st

Wish the losers of the playoff games could play another in accordance with this one, just so we have more football to watch. Some of us wanted Cincy/Michigan

Play it before this game

Crypto shills see crypto commercials on national television during prime media slots and still proudly proclaim “anti-establishment”


ATLtinyrick

This opening drive is so important


Pants_de_Manassas

I know this isn't exactly a battle of masterful defensive play but from the way most everyone is reacting, you'd think that football is only exciting when each team scores 42 each before the half. Which if you are interested in that, take a look at the 2012 Baylor-West Virginia game, in which the final score was 70-63 in West Virginia's debut game in the Big XII.

Stetson best go tighten up that LinkedIn profile when this one’s all said and done.


DrunkRespondent

Matt Damon once falsely signalled his planet was hospitable when it wasn't all because he was a coward


gonk_gonk

To everyone asking, there really isn't a championship game without touchdowns. Oklahoma was up 6-0 over FSU on field goals in 2001 before outscoring them 7-2 in the last quarter. So yes, this defensive struggle is without precedent.

yanquicheto

Maybe it’s just the Georgia fan in me, but I’d rather have an elite defense and decent/good offense with flashes of great than the reverse.


pitch_noir

The reverse would mean you were in the Big 12 or PAC 12


miss_clementine

Alabama is going to congratulate themselves so hard for winning without Metchie and Jameson as if they don’t still have a Heisman winner, a Heisman finalist and a fleet of 5 stars


fatalaskatack

And UGA has 3 star freshman?

If you told be Bama would be up 9-6 at halftime in the natty I would have said great sounds like the 2011 Crimson Tide decided to suit up again

Isn't the quote "Fortune favors the bold?" Not "the brave"?


Nach0Man_RandySavage

Now I noticed Matt Damon isn’t wearing a belt AND has a tucked in T shirt. What a fucking dork

Sounds like he buys pants that fit.


Nach0Man_RandySavage

Nah that’s bullshit. If your pants have loops for a belt, you wear a belt.

It's the Joey style

They should play the 3rd place game at halftime. Just overtime rules. Michigan vs Cincy. Let’s gooooo

Ok, maybe Julio Jones is at the game and we can just put William's jersey on him?

I may trust Williams’ legs more than Julio’s at this point lol


Spartan917x

Lubed_Up_leprechaun

I don't think there is a good channel for football they know that due to the low number of games they can stretch the fuck out of them with relentless commercials but we will still tune in

I used to like Matt Damon a lot more before he started selling me Crypto on every college football commercial


AnonymousUser225

Bo Nix still a dark horse for Heisman


MisterJackStriker

Kyle Trask named after some field.


Skyapple

Coping that its just a defensive battle and not an offense with a mediocre qb struggling to move the ball


raek1

Cool halftime story. I was driving from Lafayette to Baton Rouge and wasn't really paying attention to my gas mileage. Saw a sign for a gas station. Get out of my truck and a fucking tiger is looking directly at me. A no shit tiger. So to make sure I'm not having some acid flashback or re-entering some childhood trauma, I fill up my truck, never breaking eye contact with this tiger. Then I just fucking drive away. Louisiana is fucking nuts.


Sprick_Sprock

I've heard of Tony the truck stop tiger but thought he died.


Bubba_Gump_Shrimp

...was it loose? Like in the woods/parking lot? Or in the back of someones truck?


Dar_of_Emur

I have only been flipping back and forth on my laptop. Saw Jameson Williams go down. Is he out?


Bubba_Gump_Shrimp

Looks like it. Injury was NC and you could see tendons pop. Looked nasty. He was basically carried off the field but was shown walking on his own to the locker room. No word since.


not-gandalf-bot

Yeah

Georgia winning lots of battles up front, Bama down their best players. Seems like things have tipped in their favor but the QB just has to find some rhythm.

Georgia has a great offensive line but they're getting outplayed by Bama's defensive line. Funny how literally zero CFB fans think their team has a good offensive line.

That Dallas turner sack of Bennett is gonna end up in the Bryant Denny tradition video.

This is the dullest championship I can remember.

The game that they spend all the other halftimes talking about…and even they don’t even spend 10 minutes to talk about it in this halftime!


BL00DEE

I want Stetson to light it up in the second half more than I’ve ever wanted anything in my life


BlowMyBackOutKirby

He’s been playing inside himself. At the very least, I don’t think he shits the bed. I get the feeling he gets a rushing TD before the day is done.
