Thanks goodness for double overtime.  It saved me from having to endure a snoozer of a first quarter...

Congrats to Georgia.  Go Clemson!

A big chunk of the country, tired of hearing about how great the SEC is and tired of seeing Alabama fawned over, no longer care about the NCAA football championship. Some of us will still watch it, or parts of it depending on what else is on, but don't really care. Like the Yankees in the World Series or the Cheatriots in the Super Bowl. Meh.

Next year the SEC might be interesting’ though.  I read the Miami Dolphins are joining.  They’ll probably struggle for a few seasons, but eventually they might be competitive.

It’s apparently traveling with the Dolphins’ next playoff win.

Brady can't do better than 7-9 in road games against "SEC" road games despite playing in an offense that only makes him throw 3 difficult passes a season?

Actually, given the SEC and its long tradition of "bending" the rules, your boys would fit right in there.   I don't know if your have an equivalent to Maaaaaahk Henderson, though given the climate.

Not at all. Not a Clemson fan, unless they're playing Alabama. Just tired of the media and Alabama fans blathering on about how great the SEC is when the stats don't prove that. They have Alabama, a couple of teams that are usually pretty good, and then the rest of them which is just like almost every other conference in NCAA football. The only other team that gets as much cloyingly disgusting love from the media is Notre Dame.

Now Satan is pitching a bitch because of the shortness of time between the semi-finals and the championship.  Hey Nicky, that solution is simple.  Go right to conference play at the start of the season instead of creampuffs like the 'Bama School for the Blind Girls team.  That goes for the rest of you pretenders in and out of the confrences too!

Interestingly, since Brady has been the Patriots' starting QB, 7-9 is the average record of the Dolphins.  The Patriots have never sunk that low in any of those same seasons.

A week isn't long enough for the whiney little bitch? Suck it up, nancy. Their next to last game was against Mercer College who is an FCS school and every year Alabama does that. They play a very weak school the week before Auburn and it's just sad. That would be like the Steelers playing Pitt.

Come on, some of you are being so silly right now that I am going to be forced to defend Alabama.

One has to go back to 2011 to find Bama opening play against a "creampuff" (that year it was Kent State).

First game opponents since then for Bama have been Michigan, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Wisconsin, USC Trojans, and Florida State. 4 of those 6 opponents were ranked in the top 20 at the time (and 2 of those were in the top 10). Bama won every single one of those games, btw

One cannot reasonably claim that Saban has been scheduling creampuffs to open his seasons with.

They have Alabama, a couple of teams that are usually pretty good, and then the rest of them which is just like almost every other conference in NCAA football. The only other team that gets as much cloyingly disgusting love from the media is Notre Dame.

In Bama's case, it is justified.  Come on, Bama has won 4 National Championships in the past 8 years.   And of course, Bama might make it 5 in 9 years (but I hope not, go Dawgs!)

SEC teams have won the NC 9 times in the past 12 years (counting this year, since either Georgia or Bama will win it). In other words, in the past 12 years, non-SEC schools have won the NC only 3 times as opposed to 9 for the SEC.  In that time period, 4 different SEC schools won the NC (and it will be 5 different ones if Georgia wins this year)

SEC - 9   ACC -2   Big 10 - 1  

With that kind of run with the National Championship, OF COURSE the SEC, and Bama in particular, has developed a tremendous reputation and one that is totally justified, being won on the field again and again.   Don't like it?  Well, complain to all the other conferences that have managed to win only 3 NC's in 12 years, combined.  Tell them to get their friggin acts together instead of sucking so much.

No other conference comes even close to what the SEC has done over the past dozen years, not remotely close.

Btw, going back 20 years -- 5 different SEC schools have won the NC in the past 20 years.  If Georgia wins the upcoming game, it will be 6 different teams. What other conference comes close to that sort of record in the modern era, not only in number of NC's won but also in the number of different schools from the conference winning them?   Uh -- none.

Hey Narps!

Get any snow in Myrtle Beach today?

Btw, that is how I feel about the Patriots as well.   I have no love for them at all, and consistently pull against them.   However, there comes a point when one has to acknowledge continued success on the field for what it is, instead of pretending otherwise just because you don't like it.

As for Saban and Bama -- hate them, love them, whatever -- the fact remains that at this point it is undeniable that Saban has established a powerhouse dynasty at Alabama.   Pretending otherwise would just be silly.
