The thing I noticed was Georgia was just so damn fast.

They were all over the field.

I know that a few folks didn't like that it was a defensive struggle for the first 3 quarters, but I thought overall it was an interesting game. I like defense -- especially as a nice change of pace in what's become almost a video-game-like situation most of the time -- and there was a lot of strategy.

And then the offenses did break out some in the fourth quarter, and it was a back-and-forth battle between two very good teams. That Georgia's defense made the game-clinching play was perfect.

Making Alabama look slow is no easy task.  It was even more jarring against Michigan.

Not just any mayonnaise, bub. Duke's!

Weird how GA was so quickly able to increase their talent once Kirby took over

Georgia has always had a lot of talent. The first team Smart got to the playoff (with Roquan Smith, Jake Fromm, Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, etc.) was pretty much all Richt recruits.

Its amazing the transformation of Saban over the last 5 years or so, personality wise.  He went from a detached coaching destroyer to an extremely likable guy who is serving as a really great voice in CFB.  His moment with Bryce Young at the end of the press conference last night was fantastic

So the "new Big XII" would have 5 teams in the top 20. More than any conference, even the SEC. Feels like the new Big East in BB.

Maybe. Yet, BYU plays people. 5-0 vs Pac-12 & 1 game each vs Big 12 & ACC this past season along with Boise State.

I'm not sure BYU is out bragging about their record against the Pac-12. :)

He really is fantastic.  Why wouldn't you want to play for them if you are good enough?

Feel bad for the kid. I hope he has a full recovery, because he stands to make big bucks.

ACC commissioner Jim Phillips’ comments Friday that his conference wouldn’t support expansion until after the NCAA constitution changes (which will take place after the current window for early expansion) really sealing that (as early expansion needed unanimous support):

As we've written, this is the primary reason the ACC is against playoff expansion. The league wants the NCAA transformation to be completed before expansion.

"Now is not the time," Phillips says. "Our CEOs and ADs support the position."

Short-sighted position by the ACC. No surprise.

Hawaii's Todd Graham is resigning after two seasons on the job. His departure follows a mass exodus from within the team's roster amid allegations that he fostered a poor culture within the program. Graham, 57, posted an 11-11 record after taking over for Nick Rolovich following the 2019 season.

Graham has left people who don't like him everywhere he's gone, hasn't he?  When he bolted Pitt for ASU in 2012, that was his 5th head coaching job in 7 years, which stands out even in that business.

ASU was the 4th in 6, but otherwise yea.  He’s a pretty good coach but by all accounts an absolute tool and jackass bully.  I mean ASU and Hawaii have some pretty great recruiting advantages and a history of being pretty decent at football and he still failed there.  Seems destined for a crappy Sun Belt program

I don't think Hawaii has many great recruiting advantages.  Their facilities are terrible, albiet improving.  And if you are from the Lower 48 your family isn't going to be able to see you play a lot of home games.  And road games in the Mountain West aren't exactly easy to travel to.
