    Still don't know how they let the receiver get that open. The Dawgs had em after that sack and let them off the hook. Congrats to Bama for coming back and winning the game and Georgia for having them on the brink. The Dawgs should be a force to be reckoned with from now on in the SEC.

    Saban left Michigan State in the late1990's because he believed he couldn't out recruit UofM and also win big there. That's why he left for LSU and ultimately Alabama. A shrewd career move back then, but he was proven right. He was able to recruit better players and build a football dynasty at Alabama. They weren't saying he was some great HOF genius coach back then at MSU, but they are now.

    So anyone can do it?
    How many coaches have won 6 National Championships?

    I'm weary of debating you muttly .. You're a bitter Big10 fan not a college football fan ...

    Now, now Boyz. We can all agree great game. No shoulda' coulda' or woulda' here. Season's over. One key thing about Saban, he changed the starter with an untested freshman and won. 99% of other coaches would stick with their gamplan, he didn't. They both deserved to be where they were and the best coach won. Words a Vol's fan chokes on

    No I didnt say that. My point is that Saban was the coach back then (at MSU) that he is now. But his success as a coach back then was constrained by the recruiting limitations of being at MSU (mostly considered a basketball school back then and being second fiddle to U of M in getting the talented kids out of the Michigan area). At the time he left he was highly criticized for turning his back on the program but he knew he had to go to a higher profile school to reach the success he wanted. I'm actually making the point that you have made about the talent down south so I am hardly a bitter Big 10 fan. I was rooting for Georgia though if only to see a different team from the SEC win a championship.

    I imagine Kirby thought he had the old man. It's amazing how in the biggest moments Saban does the unthinkable.

    My heart goes out to the Bama kicker. You spend your whole life dreaming of the one big moment. The win will be bittersweet for him ..

    What a pass to win the game! I can't recall Saban being so overjoyed after winning a Championship ..

    Personally, I think they are just having fun with it, and, they deserve to. Good for fans and recruiting. But, they are knot that far removed from the team that Bama & UGA would invite for homecoming game.

    Just think .. those were both true freshman quarterbacks in the second half last night. They're only gonna get better ...

    It's the one thing Bama has never had, a superstar QB .. well looks like they got one now. Oh, the misery as Saban keeps winning ..

    The issue with UCF is their schedule. Their in conference schedule doesn't justify a top 4 ranking. They gotta schedule tough out of conference games. For them that means taking the risk & going on the road to play whoever will host them. LSU, Michigan, Miami ... insert whatever big program you want. They gotta go on the road & win. Beating Auburn in a bowl game is one thing. A good solid win. Wanna face them during the season? That's a different matter altogether ..

    Didn't we have this discussion about Bama and their schedule, (very weak SEC overall this year) losing to a top ten team during regular season? Bama lost on the road to Auburn. Lol
    But justified top 4 ranking how?
    And no. LSU wasn't a signature win during the regular season. They lost to TROY.
    And no. neither was MSU. They lost to Mississippi. Lol
