"Pain is a Liar"
Well, if you're going to plaster that on the side of your face...I suppose you have no choice but show everybody what you mean. Kudos to Jesse Williams on gutting it out. I figured he had shredded his knee. Barrett Jones played on one good foot too.
I've been to 215 Bama games in person, this was one of the best ever! Just got home and can't wait to start the replay.

The last question they ask CMR was a cheap shot, and while I don't care for him, I can understand his indignation.
It might have been true, but bringing up "You can't win the big ones" bit was not called for.

An awesome, edge-of-your-seat game, both teams played their hearts out. Both coaches had hiccup moments couple times, but I do think the Murray fade pass there at the end had a chance of working, but it was a bit short due to Mosely's tip.
It was all in all one of the most exciting games I've watched in a long time, and definitely one of the best SECC games ever.
Best of luck to Georgia in their bowl, I do think had they won, they would have been able to have a great shot of beating ND, playing like they did tonight.
Congrats to our Bama team, especially to Lacy, Yeldon, and most especially our oline who lived up to their billing as one of the best. Defense stepped up too at crucial times doing just enough to give our offense a chance late. I thought the 3-in-out stop right after Bama's last scoring drive was huge. Thought Williams, Dickson and Mosely all played a really great game. I think Dickson had two sacks on Murray and Hubbard may have had a third? Can't remember but I loved seeing these guys fire off the line and push UGA's oline around early. You could tell we missed Williams in the lineup when he went out hurt, but also just glad he's okay.
Fluker has had his moments at times this year, stepped up and was a difference maker on that last scoring drive for Bama as well. You could tell he was fired up and made it known to his teammates pushing them to finish the drive and score. Big congrats to Lacy especially, he ran with an attitude and purpose all game, made some great runs, and overall was incredible game for him. Yeldon & Cooper continue to amaze with their maturity and talent in making big plays when the offense needs them.

Congrats to AJ and the team. Best of luck in Miami!
Thank God I didn't dream it.
I'll always look back as I walk away
This memory will last for eternity
And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
Til I find my way back to your arms again
But until that day you know you are
The queen of my heart
Congrats to the SEC champs!!! Good game. The way our o-line and running backs pounded the Georgia defense was epic. While we didn't play a great game, we played well enough to win. Honestly, the mistakes we made that kept UGA in the game were more poor plays on our part than great plays by Georgia. We left at least 14 points on the field due to our errors. The interception in the end zone was more on us than it was a great play by the UGA db. The clock management problems at the end of the first half were squarely on us, and perhaps cost us 4 points. The fake punt we didn't execute cost us at least a first down on a drive. Combine that with the blocked fg and the fortuitous bounce the ball took, and you have at least a 21 point swing. Without some poor plays by us and some good fortune for them, Bama wins by 3 tds.
As far as UGA goes, no one is saying that they didn't play their guts out for sixty minutes, but having said that, AM was six inches and a slow motion replay from throwing a pick at midfield. After the reprieve AM threw two good passes to get UGA to the 8 yard line. You could tell he thought they were gonna spike the ball. I don't know who made the call on the sideline, but as the headcoach, and the one that makes the big bucks, it's ultimately on CMR. That boneheaded play call combined with a great play by CJM to tip the ball, doomed the dawgs and cost them at least a shot to score and get to the NCG.

I kept asking (after I saw how many rushing yards we had) how in the world are we losing this game? This was when GA went up 28-25. In all honestly I don't feel it should have been this close of a game. We made too many mistakes. If we wouldn't have, it would have been a bigger margin of victory and I wouldn't have had a heart attack.
