    Re: Georgia fans taking it hard again...

    Not only is it an unnecessary jab at AM - who played a whale of a game - but it's also a bit of a slap in the face of Alabama to suggest that UGA lost because AM 'lost the big games' instead of crediting Bama for playing well.

    An all around classless and stupid question - by asking, Oliver comes across as someone who is clueless about college football.
    DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. 2009-2014, crimsonaudio

    As someone who spent nine years on the reporting/editorial side of newspapers, I think the question was chicken poop. The reporter should have had the gonads, as Richt suggested, to ask the question - by prefacing the question with fans say, etc. is garbage. Tells me a lot about the the reporter - on the playground we would question his manhood. If you had a question, ask it! Don't beat around the bush.

    Agree 100%. He was trying to be controversial with his question, to gain some street cred, but he wasn't man enough to ask the question, instead couching it in the "some fans say.....". Dude, if you don't have the stones to ask the question then shut your trap is what I thought the minute a saw the press conference. I was actually proud of CMR for the way he handled it. Can you imagine what the scene would have been like if someone asked CNS that type of question?????

    Of course it will be a pro Georgia paper...and the game I watched showed to heavyweights slugging it out...
    in my mind, that was an instant classic....a very tight, back and forth game that went down to the final seconds...

    and, the right team won it in the end!

    I thought it was a rolled up newspaper for whupping bad Dawgs.

    Re: Georgia fans taking it hard again...

    I have a good friend here in GA who is a Georgia fan and I haven't even been able to kid around with him. He's been offended at everything I've said and I'm not even close to gloating or talking smack. I seriously thought he would handle it better. I think I would but who knows. They do seem to be taking it very, very personal.

    Re: Georgia fans taking it hard again...

    The two or three I've talked to this morning have been congratulatory and good sports about it, but other than that, my office has been visitor-less today. Caught some grief about it yesterday at church, but nothing more than "Well, you're brave wearing that [Bama] shirt in downtown" (the church is in downtown), talking about key plays, and them wishing us good luck against ND.

    100% agree. I never remember Saban going for 2 in the third quarter before. But with the way the game was going, it was one of those situations where Coach knew the Dawgs were going to score some more points, and to win we were going to have to take some chances to get the edge. Like going for it on a 4th down instead of kicking an easy FG because you know kicking field goals isn't going to cut it. If we had last year's defense, I think Saban calls for the extra point and wins the game on defense. This game was won primarily by the offensive line, Eddie Lacy, and TJ Yeldon.

    Re: Georgia fans taking it hard again...

    I was in Epcot when the game was played - walking around and "watching" the game on my smartphone. I spoke to many fans from both Alabama and Georgia before, during and after the game. Most from both programs were very positive and supportive of both their program and the opposition's.

    After the game, I only ran across one GA fan who wasn't happy to talk about the heartbreaking game.

    Re: Georgia fans taking it hard again...

    My boss is a GA fan. Interestingly, he has gone out of his way to congratulate me on every Bama win this year....except this one. I had to bring it up, and he wasn't the least bit ready to talk about it. They are taking it very hard!

    Gary made a an obvious but good comment when he said that the last team with the ball was probably going to win, and that about happened! Georgia answered just about all night, which is why I find criticizing Murray crazy. And I agree, Coach Saban made it easy on the defense on the last drive having to score a TD. I bet coach Saban wanted no part of OT

    I've had the congrats on the game UGA fans and the still whining about the hit on Murray UGA fans here at work. The later being to the point of annoying. Doesn't really help that 680 The Fan here is chumming up the water for them calling for the SEC to suspend Dial for the BCSNCG.
