I think if Georgia had punted they would have won the game and that is a lot safer way to give themselves a chance. They were winning the field position battle for the most part up until that fake and that tilted the field for Alabama.

Does anyone know what the actual play that was called...... not just ‘Punt Fake’, but the actual play??? Hell, I’ve gone from pass to run and now am back to a pass play.

After what I heard yesterday, don’t know if it was a run or pass play, someone said a quarterback was put in and Alabama pick-up on it.......

I don't know where right now, but I did hear that it was a called pass play. Then when Alabama sent their defense out, well that is where things get fuzzy.

Anyone watch the Stagg Bowl between Mount Union and Mary Hardin Baylor? MHB ran the same fake punt from around their own 40, up 8 with 7 mins to go, and failed. However it did not cost the championship. Mount Union moved the ball inside the 15 before losing it. As I watched it, I kept thinking back to Georgia and seeing this D3 title ending in a very similar fashion. Either way congrats to Mary Hardin Baylor for knocking off the powerhouses of Mount Union and Wisconsin Whitewater in 7 days.

HIghfly24, you are one of this board's true football aficionados.

On a separate, but less important thought, it does support Mr. Billybud's position.

And on an even less important comment, my kids have TV's that are in color and the screen far exceeds mine which measures diagonally 13". The coup de grâce was when Mrs. Donovan saw they had a gadget where they could change channels, and they had more than 3 channels, from their chair. I pointed out I did not need one as long as she could get up and walk. This couch is very cold at night.
As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

Yep, Mary Hardin looked good in that win. I was flipping back and forth to the Battle of the Dakotas...... North beat South and looked good doing it too. 8)

Thank you I'll take that as high praise.

Agreed. They are tough to beat.
