To whoever wrote that Clemson was our only hope: I don't see UGA winning a "national championship" with Stetson Bennett (this year's Hutson Mason) when they've failed to do it with way better players. But any "national championship" they won in a season where they dodged us would be illegitimate.

I’ll be honest, I think Saban knows he’s not winning this game. This feels like another strategic covid positive test. @ibeeballin
Is this like the year Duke had a bad team so Coach K took the whole season off "recovering"?

Saban is running the ultimate troll on Georgia, he’s going to beat them easily with his back up.
This is what I am thinking (hoping)...he's done it twice with his QBs and now will do it again by sitting this one out and letting Sark take the reins. He's probably not even got COVID. He's just doing this to prove that he can.

I just don't see UGAg winning the game. Alabama is every bit as physical as UGAg man for man and is actually much better at QB

I hate it. But Georgia is going to win that game whether Saban is in the sidelines or not. Giving them 6 points is a lock. I’d bet a lot of money on it. Bama struggled against Ole Miss. Georgia has struggled with nothing.
I mean, Bama’s defense struggled with Ole Miss. Their offense was effectively unimpeded by Ole Miss. From what I hear, U[sic]GA’s strength is their D, so it should be an interesting matchup.

I’m not going to watch it, because THWG.

So you're that impressed with Stetson that you think Alabama is gonna fold?

Hasn't UGA been losing at halftime in two of three games so far? Let's pump the breaks on UGA's greatness.

Some of you guys really think Kirby is going to be the first former assistant to take down Saban?

Although, would a loss count against his record if he isn't on the sidelines?

UGA had their hands full against Arkansas and Tennessee for most of the game. Only team they seemed to put away early was Auburn. Bama is coming off a down week so you know they’re going to play hard. I think Bama by a comfortable margin - 14 or so

This worries me. Saban must think a loss to a former assistant is likely, thus the COVID alibi. Sarkisian takes the loss.

Bama's running backs are really impressive, especially Harris. We're going to see how good UGA's defense is.

Clemson's offense looks even better than Bama's, watching highlights. I think they are the legit best team in the country.
