Georgia didn't want to be there. I'd say they thought they should have been in the playoffs. the whorns ran the ball on them. I think that UGa didn't think they could. UT mixed it up well.
If Georgia didn’t want to be there Texas would’ve won by a lot. That’s the same excuse that was used when OU beat Bama a few years back, not buying it.
Thanks to those who remembered 1998 Alamo Bowl. If you come with no enthusiasm and a grduge in a game like the Sugar Bowl last night, you're probably going to lose. That's not an excuse for UGa because as much as I love to see the shorthorns lose, it was comical how they were loading up on the dogs (including the mascot).

CK: I lived in nebraska for a lot of years. inside the echo chamber can be a wonderful place to be. until the house of cards all fall down around you.

day's coming. ESPN won't be pumping sunshing forever. Heck, sooner or later they might just jump on the ACC bandwagon and them we'll have to deal with JILTED SEC fans vs just self-entitled.

can not wait.
:roll:
Oh, it's already happening. The ACC Network, which is owned by ESPN, is launching this August. ESPN will be promoting the heck out of both the SEC and (especially) the ACC. There is an article now on ESPN's website justifying the current playoff system, saying that it puts the two best teams against each other, which happens to be one from each conference. The article criticized those who are bored of seeing the same two teams every year, playing for the national championship.

oh joy.

can say this: once upon a time bowl season was awesome! now? not so much. has so much less to do with 'who's playing whom' than the play-off has really opened the gap between games that have interest and games that are nothing short of exhibitions.

ultimately, to really 'make every game matter' the system needs to change.

take it to a 'win or go home' level.

but those 'periphery' games won't go away. communities and chambers of commerce have a big investment in them. to further make the point: how insignificant has the Rose Bowl now become? I can't even tell you 'when' it was played or WHO was in it.

nor do I care.

We’re already at a win or go home level- unless you’re Bama, or Clemson, or Ohio State, or Oklahoma.
