It’s déjà vu all over again.

So ESPN does this elaborate “What If There Were a 64-Team Tournament for the 2019 Football Season?” exercise, and it turns out to be nothing more than a troll of the Georgia fan base.

National championship

(1) Alabama 31, (1) Georgia 30: After playing just twice in a decade, the Tide and Bulldogs meet for the third straight season in an extremely high-stakes matchup. Once again, Georgia takes an early lead behind Fromm’s precision passing and two Swift touchdown runs. And for the third straight year, Alabama breaks Georgia’s heart because of a backup quarterback. Mac Jones comes off the bench to relieve an injured Tagovailoa and find Ruggs for the winning touchdown pass with 6 seconds left.

If Mac Jones beats Georgia with six seconds to go, Kirby Smart will officially have become college football’s 21st century version of Marv Levy.

At least there’s no mention of a fake punt.

    Unlike the Bills’ 3 of 4 losses , UGA has SHOWN up for those games, to say the least.

    If something like this were to actually happen, do you think the Georgia fan base would be looking to replace Kirby? Or is getting so close three times acceptable? I don’t actually know how I would feel. On the one hand, just damn! But who else is going to get us to that doorstep on a regular basis? It’s not an easy task. Very few coaches can regularly put a team in a position to compete for a championship.

      Anybody looking to replace Kirby would be a damned fool because of losing 3 heartbreaking games (with a lot of bad luck and bad breaks involved) to one of the best dynasties and arguably the best coach in college football history. Getting there is the hard part. Keep beating on that door, one day its going to open.

    Mickey can go jump in a lake. If we’re as good as we ought to be this year, we win it all. Not predicting 44-16; predicting a far better D, and a substantially improved O. That will be enough.

    Just comparing team/program vision from one year and projecting success down the road, would you rather lose 3 heartbreak high stakes games or lose 70-6 in the Orange Bowl on your way to success? Yes, I’m thinking about where Clemson was and where they are today … Takes time but with the right mindset and great recruiting, the Tigers showed you can get over the hump.
