Georgia's O-line vs. Alabama's Front 7.

Even the best rushing attacks have trouble.

But Michel had a good game.

18 carries for 25 yards for Chubb...needed to be better than that.

Has Jalen Hurts transferred yet?

He handled the benching with class.

Seriously, what a fantastic game. So many storylines, so much to like. 

 

I love seeing that kid become a legend in just one game. It's just everything that's right with sports. 

 

One "ugh" moment from the game. Dunno who #48 for Bama was, but he got really, REALLY close to slugging a coach on the sideline. He had to get pulled back by another player. Well, he came back in and made an insane play on the kickoff (where he literally one-arm dragged the returner at the 12 or so). Good play, but holy crap, they let him keep playing?

Most game summary articles bore me... but I think this one captures what was special about it very, very well.... 

 

The headline misses the point, but the article nails it...

The Ringer: Move Over, Bear Bryant: Nick Saban’s Coaching Legacy Is Now Second to None

 

I generally like the tenor of the announcers who did the game... but Herbstreit did his usual trick of seeing a play, commenting on what happened in it, then narrating the replay which shows he was wrong about what happened... but he narrates it like he was right anyway despite the evidence in the replay proving him wrong...

 

But my favorite goof was when they were talking about Saban, saying now that he's tied the Bear, what else does he have to keep coaching for?   

(Um, maybe to win *more* than anybody else ever, no matter who they are?)
