  • What Fred Said
    What Fred Said Year ago

    I'm not a Georgia fan by any means but the ref's blew several calls in this game and they all seemed to benefit Alabama! They screwed Georgia out of a blocked punt, a personal foul that should have been called against Alabama when their player pushed the quarterback of Georgia's head when he was on the ground, the missed face mask to a Georgia player and a block in the back on a punt return! Not to mention all the times I saw an Alabama player with a handful of Georgia jersey in his hand but was never called for holding. This was one of the worst officiated games I have ever seen and only a few sport writers have mentioned this. I realize you can't get every call right but my god get a different job if you can't do better than this! Sad part is they were Big 10 Refs. my team is in the Big Ten.

    Did he mean his parents would be mad if he mentions his thanks to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? If they raised him that way, to be unashamed, then he is only living that out, this is a defining moment for him, mom and dad be proud, your son is a champion and I'm not just talking football. It's refreshing to see young men like this on the big stage acknowledging his faith. I wish him the very best.

      Pernell Hill He was saying that they would be mad if he didn't acknowledge the lord, that's why he stopped and made sure he said that before continuing answering her question. His parents taught him very well that in all things, gives thanks to God first!..I love it!!!

    I'm so proud of him. True freshman coming in the second half of the national championship, taking the entire team on his back and leading them to victory. I knew he was special ever since the Vanderbilt game. But don't forget about the man who got us there. Jalen Hurts. It was a brilliant move by Saban to switch up quarterbacks. He obviously knew that Tua could get the job done and it was the last thing Georgia expected.

    • NettieBon
      NettieBon Year ago

      Dustin Williams Stop saying Jalen got them there, Jalen wasn't going to finish just like last year and the team would of lost again. What is the purpose of getting a team to the national championship since so many people keep bringing that up about Jalen, only to play like crap in the most important game, and no one is perfect but Jalen was terrible against GA and didn't seem to care even after the defensive leaders had talks with him on the sideline to get the offense going, he failed the offense and defense the first half, but the defense though playing through frustration kept GA to only 13 points and gave the team a chance to come back. Enough Jalen praise, it's Tua time so let him shine, dude gone be a monster next season! I'm sorry and I like Jalen but he is not thhe QB that Bama needs going forward, he almost blew this game

      We Polynesians love God and owe our very beings to the creator. It's innate and not taught, it's something I have a hard time explaining, it's only felt and words cannot express this awareness. I lived on the islands and I learned to observe nature, calm my mind, and feelings while listening to the rhythm of the waves and they break on the shoreline, the bristle in the wind. The language of nature and its creator is very where on the islands. I used to wake up early in the morning to observe the sun rise and meditate and be one with the creator. It's very therapeutic and a feeling and knowing I cannot put into words. English is my second language and even in my mother tongue it's hard to express the oneness of everything.

    The Georgia Bulldog fans are whimpering like a kicked dog. They said the Big ten refs threw it in favor of Alabama, but that makes no sense. It was after all Alabama that beat out Ohio State for the last spot. UGA always need an excuse for their failures, when they should be blaming their head coach for putting their offense in the deep freeze for the second half. He thought he scored enough points to win, but that just means he's a chicken shi+ coach for not having courage.
