The bleeding has finally stopped, but the scar will be there forever. The Georgia Bulldogs are your 2022 national champions. They beat the TCU Horn Frogs the final score. Prepare yourselves. 65 to 7.
I'm going to say that again. The Georgia Bulldogs just won the national championship in college football. 65 to 7. It's the largest margin of victory in a bowl game in college football history. We're going to talk about this game tonight. There's a whole lot of other stuff going on. We got some coaches who've gotten fired. Cliff Kingsbury is gone.
And it's just there's a lot going on. But we got time to get into that. Kirby Smart went back to back.
And how about this? The only thing that Georgia screwed up tonight was the Gatorade shower or Gatorade bath. They got half of his body and they fumbled the stupid container or jug or cooler or whatever the hell you call it. They screwed it up.
Outside of that, they destroyed him. 65 to 7. The final score. Georgia led TCU at halftime 38 to 7.
This was just an annihilation all throughout the entire game. It's this was sad to watch. I feel bad for TCU. They had to participate in this.
They got their ass whooped. It's the JR Sport Reef Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. I'm going to be hanging out here with you for the next three hours. Thank you to everybody who tuned in and locked in to our number one of the show. We get started 10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific every single weeknight. You can always listen on the free Odyssey app. Thank you to everybody listening on your local CBS Sports Radio affiliate Sirius XM Channel 158 and everybody listening on a smart speaker. I'm being joined here by super producer and host Dave Shepherd and all of you guys listening across North America. You probably watched. Maybe you listened to the national championship tonight and congratulations to the Bulldogs. They're my local squad right down the road from here for me here in Atlanta down in Athens.
Just a quick skip down the road. And I know plenty of people who are happy. I'm happy that they won.
But it's I don't want to call it bittersweet, not by any stretch of the imagination. But what we saw tonight is like it's like the worst thing about college football. I'll sit down and watch anything. If it's competitive. You know, how many games do you watch at the beginning of a season where we got a team that just shows up to collect a check because they're going to get smashed?
It's like you take two, three million dollars just to go out there and lose. In the case of TCU tonight, they were a Big 12 school selected to go. They beat who they beat. You can't knock them last week for knocking off Michigan. And now they're here in the championship. They run into the Bulldogs and they got nothing.
Zero. They ran everything that they had out of them last week and they get smashed tonight in historic fashion. And we're going to expand the college football playoff to 12 teams in about two years. We got all these teams moving around and and swapping conferences and leaving for bigger money. I don't care what the expansion does.
Is it supposed to filter out the TCUs? Is it going to make the role tougher on the way to the championship? Are we going to have more upsets? Tonight was just a full on disaster. I want you to listen to the score at halftime that set us up and put us in a space of thirty eight to seven because Stetson Bennett completely lost his mind. Before we do that, listen to these numbers for Stetson Bennett as the Bulldogs have gone back to back. Tonight, he completed 70 percent of his passes. He threw for 300 plus yards. Stetson Bennett threw four plus touchdowns. He rushed for multiple TVs. He averaged 10 plus yards per rush.
He did not get sacked. Nobody, no quarterback in the last 25 years has had a game like Stetson Bennett did tonight. Eight, eighteen of twenty five, three hundred and four yards, four touchdowns, two touchdowns on the ground. His longest being the first score, a twenty one yard rush. Listen to this bomb in the second quarter that made the score thirty eight to seven. This is courtesy the Bulldogs radio network.
From the twenty two second and ten for the dogs. Thirty two seconds to go. Bennett to throw right angle. One on one coverage and caught. I think touchdown Mitchell. He's still fighting the guy.
T.C.U. ended up with the ball when they came out of the pile. But the officials say touchdown.
It's sad. Thirty eight to seven. Well, let's fast forward still with the Bulldogs radio network.
Let's let's go to where they made the score forty five to seven. This was Stetson Bennett throwing to a guy who's going to go to the NFL. His name is Brock Bowers.
Listen to this. Bennett takes the snap in the shotgun, throws for the corner. Brock Bowers one on one. Caught. Touchdown.
He ate him alive. Falls down into the end zone. Six more for Georgia. Yeah, we got another one. This one is in third quarter. This is Stetson Bennett. To McConkie, who has busted up knees. And this time they made the score fifty two to seven. Bennett to throw lobs it to the right corner.
There's McConkie. He got on his donkey and made a sliding catch in the right corner. Touchdown. He did what? He got on a donkey. OK. All right. Bennett to throw lobs it to the right corner. There's McConkie. He got on his donkey. Hey, whatever, whatever works, right? They rode that donkey.
They whooped that ass all night. Terrible. Sixty five to seven. I have people messaging me saying, well, let me read this message here. Somebody somebody text me earlier. What do you say to me? College football needs to be more competitive. Thank you, Mike. Absolutely. You're not lying. Stetson Bennett in college football playoff games.
Six total touchdowns, zero interceptions for a dude who's just a walk on. No, this did. Hey, shut this. There's more like audio abuse that we can play.
There's more of that. Yes. Branson Robinson, one yard touchdown run. He made the score fifty nine to seven. This is in the fourth quarter. George is going to get back on the line and go quickly handed off to Robinson straight ahead from inside the one. Did he break the plane? The officials are running in. Yeah, there's the signal.
Arms go up in the air. Touchdown Branson Robinson. Hey, every time I say the score, the final score of the game, I didn't realize if I'm getting ready to make a mistake. It doesn't seem natural to say this. Sixty five to seven was the final score.
Wow. If you're playing for TCU today, like you like tonight, you feel like crap, right? It's like we went through all of this and we had a hell of a game last week in beating Michigan. Nobody thought that we would do that. And we go to the national championship and we only score seven.
Oh, well, there's more abuse. This is the final score of the game. Another Branson Robinson touchdown run.
Take a listen to this. This is the last score, right, Shep? The last one? I hope so.
Yeah, let's hear it. Robinson, who scored a few moments ago, shakes and bakes at the twenty at the fifteen at the ten to the five. Pylon touchdown left corner for a massive hole opened up just off tackle. And once again, dogs able to get outside and contain.
We've been doing it all afternoon. Yeah, that was the final score of the game. Sixty five to seven. Let's let's go through some of these numbers. TCU on third down converted two out of eleven third downs. TCU had nine first downs to Georgia's thirty two. Georgia had five hundred and eighty nine total yards to TCU's one eighty eight.
And that feels generous. TCU team stats. They rushed for thirty six yards to Georgia's two fifty four. They fumbled the ball once, which was early in the game. They threw two interceptions. And looking at the numbers, I feel like I feel like a parent. I feel like a parent from TCU.
Like, what do you like? What do you tell your kid after this? Even looking at these stats is is nuts. Nine total touch. Nine total touchdowns for Georgia tonight. Nine.
And that field goal from earlier. What does that what? What do you do this? Eight, five, five, two, one, two, four, CBS, eight, five, five, two, one, two, four, CBS. Matthews calling from Connecticut. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Matthew? Hey, how are you? I just have to ask this question.
I don't know. I've never been a college football fan and I'm still not. And if you'd asked me this morning who was playing tonight, I wouldn't even have been able to answer the question. But I follow the NFL every weekend.
My question would be with 12 teams. Wouldn't you weed out a team like tonight? Wouldn't that be the ultimate answer? Isn't it better to expand it?
Because even a blind squirrel finds an acorn. Right. But I thought it was a night. But yeah, sure. Well, I'm sorry. I'm not saying I'm not right.
We got it. But but isn't that the point? Like if we expanded it, we would weed out teams like this. So I'm a huge Patriots fan.
I was a Patriots fan before they were good. Wouldn't the exact if they had made the playoffs this year, they would have gone nowhere. Wouldn't this be the exact cure for everything? Could it make me a college fan because there would be a process that led to the best teams playing?
Well, that's that's certainly the hope. I mean, up until now, we haven't had a perfect system. Whether a stupid computer is picking who deserves to be playing there at the end via rankings or whether we have a committee who sits down week to week and tries to evaluate things. The problem on a 12 team model is it very well could be the opposite. We might have more games that we witnessed tonight throughout the course of a college football playoff system. And so where it might be a positive where you go, well, we're opening it up to more people. We're weeding them through. Well, if every game.
Well, not everyone. But if you're going to have more potential games, maybe not 65 to 7. But if they're not competitive, I mean, when we start boiling it down, when you think about the 12 year, every now and then, you're going to have some upsets.
That's going to happen. But there's a fear that all those games won't be competitive. The fact is, there's not a perfect system.
There's not an overall system that works the best. I don't think we will see one. I think it's going to take years. I believe that they want to start the expansion somewhere between 2024 and 2026.
That doesn't necessarily give us an exact time frame or timeline. But this is it. So here's the other thing I think we have to remember.
It is college. Like it's not. It's not the pros. And we see ass whoopings in the pros. I never seen those 65 to 7 game now.
And so I don't think there's ever going to be a foolproof way. You know, college football is it's in college athletics, especially if you want to look at basketball and football. It is the biggest and best example of you have the haves and the have nots. And until we get more of the best teams playing in one conference, until we get the SEC versus everybody else. Big 10 or whatever the case might be, until we get the real super conferences.
I don't I don't see this change in that much. It's it's sad. And tonight is just a massive example. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. Robert is here from Arizona.
You're on the general sport reef show. There are nights like tonight. Just reminds me why I could never like fully get into college football the way I am into the NFL.
And like you were saying, I don't know how they can fix this or make it better. It's just the SEC's levels and levels ahead of everybody else. And I wish I wish I could like college football more.
But not nights like that were embarrassing, I think. Well, do you do you have a particular school that you root for or he he's gone? He hates college football that much. I was going to ask him, I know he's from Arizona, but I would have loved to know where in Arizona.
Did he go to school in Arizona? I mean, are there any existing rivalries? It's tough. Tonight doesn't help.
We're going to have a lot of conversations over the next several days about what is going on. And and maybe this pushes the button for college football playoffs sooner than anyone would have ever thought. Because the last thing that anybody wants to do from a business perspective is put on another game next year. This is going to hurt. Other quote unquote smaller schools, the Cincinnati's, the TCU's. This is going to hurt other schools who are not at the top of the food chain. People are going to look at the rankings next year. And it may not be TCU.
It might not be Cincinnati. But that next school isn't necessarily going to get the benefit of the doubt. They're going to be looked upon and said, do we really want to put them into the top four? Do we really want to put them in a college football playoff? They might end up like TCU. And nobody wants that.
This is bad. Sixty five to seven. Stetson Bennett named your offensive MVP. The Georgia Bulldogs have gone back to back winning national championships. And I can't even say they did it with a bang.
They abused them. Sixty five to seven. Eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. I'm going to take more of your calls on the other side.
We got a lot of NFL to get into as well. It's the J.R. Sportbrief show CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the J.R. Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the J.R. Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio.
I'm at work doing security, man. I listen to your show every night. Hey, man, I am new to your show, but I absolutely love it.
It's awesome. This is the best sports talk radio show on the air for sure. For none. Call in now at eight five five two one two four CBS. Hey, Kirby Smart got a one million dollar bonus for winning the national championship tonight. We know he got a raise last year after winning the first of these now back to back championships. He got a bump up to eleven point two five million dollars, eleven and a quarter. And now because he's won the championship. He got another million dollars.
So good for him as the Georgia Bulldogs beat TCU. The final score. Sixty five to seven. Eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS Stetson Bennett throwing three hundred and four yards for four touchdowns. Georgia rushing for another five TV's.
It was just obnoxious. TCU nowhere near having the amount of talent, the same type of talent. That Georgia does is Georgia finishes their season with another championship and they go 15 and 0. This is the biggest beatdown in bowl game history for any bowl game. Let's go ahead and pick up the line right now. Bill is here from Fort Lauderdale. You're on CBS Sports Radio, the J.R. sport reef show. Go ahead, Bill. Hey there, man.
Thanks for taking the call. Just wanted to say the you know, the whole sentiment about like we got to fix this. Like did that we forget about the games before this? The two games?
I don't understand what there is to fix. If you're going to say TCU did not belong there. OK, then you need to tell me Michigan did not belong there because like in the semifinals, did they not beat the team that you're telling me belongs there or to change my opinion and tell me Michigan didn't belong there? The reason why, as I'm telling you that at the same time, I'm going to tell you TCU lost their last game. That was the out.
That was the chance for the committee to recognize. No team lost its last game. There's no way can we put that team in there? So as much as I disagree with something needs to get fixed, that was one heck of a game they played against Michigan. You saw the Ohio State Georgia game and like I just walked out of Twin Peaks off of Cypress Creek Road in Fort Lauderdale. Twin Peaks, if you know what I mean.
Beautiful place. And I was sitting there battling for like a half hour with the guy next to me at the end after the game because the game was already over about this exact subject. And he wanted eight. And the main reason he wanted eight, because it guaranteed the four best teams would be in there. And I said, OK, does that guarantee the four best teams are going to win the first round?
No, it doesn't. So you're going to knock out a chance. There's a possibility of knocking out one of the four best teams by one of these Cinderella-esque teams. I don't want to see one versus eight.
Forgive me. I don't like to watch the basketball tournament with all of those teams. When a Cinderella team knocks out every year, I see it take out a team who could possibly win it all. Well, you know, what is this a charity event? Well, it's not charity. It's business.
And when you have more games of interest where people feel that they could tune in and they might see that Cinderella basket ride or through the horse or whatever the hell she did with her shoe and a golden slipper, you know, people will tune in. Yeah, it's the money. Like, don't do it for money reasons.
Do it for logical reasons, not for money reasons. Who does anything for... Bill, where do you... That's how I live, buddy. That's how I live. But that's okay. I'm the exception to any... I'm the knucklehead. Well, if you were... I hear that... Integrity is key in my life.
That's all. Sure. Well, welcome to the real world where integrity, I think we all know, is not key. I'm with you, but just tell me Michigan didn't belong there. Otherwise, you can't tell me TCU didn't belong there. I don't think... No, what you're saying is valid. I think where it boils down to is how the teams are selected and who gets to go. No one can take away from what TCU did against Michigan.
Nobody can do that. But what you can make an argument for is the overall system. And it doesn't matter whether we got to go back to the BCS. I'm not advocating for that.
It doesn't matter if you hit the fast forward button and you expand into the playoffs and now you have more one versus eight and we see more beat downs. There is not a perfect system. And thank you, Bill, for calling up.
That's exactly my point. If you add 18... Well, hold on, Bill. Damn, Bill, you've been here for three and a half minutes. Okay, sorry. I'm interrupting you. I'm sorry. I'm all excited. I'm sorry.
My bad. No, it's all... You also had Twin Peaks. I'm sure you're excited. Thank you, Bill, for calling from Fort Lauderdale. Bill is like, hey, I'm a man from integrity. I just left Twin Peaks arguing with a guy. Okay, fine. That's good.
But he won't take money, but he'll hang out at Twin Peaks. Nothing wrong with that. Anyway, look, there is no perfect system. We know that. And I don't think the college football, you know, I don't think they care. I don't think the television partners care. They don't care as long as people watch.
That's what it boils down to first. Unless every single college football game or, let me say, playoff game or championship game is going to be a blowout or is going to be a beating, why are they going to change anything? People are still watching. People are still tuning in. People still care.
I mean, for all the touchdowns of which there were nine of them that were scored against TCU tonight. Man, I got to give credit to some of their fans. They were still there. They didn't leave.
I'm sure we had some TCU folks who turned the television off, turned the radio off like a lot of folks. We got to remember, we can think about the ideas and come up with the scenarios and how the playoffs should work and who should be in it and who shouldn't be in it and who selects it. It still has monetary value attached to it. People are going to debate this.
We're debating it right now. They're still going to make money hand over fist. I just told you Kirby Smart got a $1 million bonus for winning the championship tonight. A $1 million bonus.
Stetson Bennett, who knows what he's doing next year. Maybe he's holding a clipboard or maybe he's signing autographs somewhere. He's going to get money. He's going to get paid.
Everybody involved in this makes money, whether it's a beat down or it's a close game and people talk about it. It's not changing. I'm OK with an expansion. I don't know about 12. I'm not going to belly ache about it.
I kind of shrug my shoulders. It's like an NFL season. Do we need 17 games? Why does the NFL have 17 games to make more money? 65 to 7. If you don't like college football, then you're going to belly ache and want. And if you love it, you might go, oh, yeah, it's just it's just one game. I'd be damned if I turned on a Super Bowl game. And saw a 65 to 7 score. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS, that's 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS.
What are your thoughts on this national championship game we saw tonight? How do you fix the competitive balance? I don't think there is a an answer. There's no perfect answer. There's no perfect scenario. What would we have seen?
I don't know. Ohio State beaten, busted up Tennessee at the end of the year. We would have saw Washington get smashed instead.
I mean, would we have seen an upset? Probably somewhere along the line. And ain't nothing perfect, folks. It's all about the dough. I'm going to get some more of your calls on the other side. It's the JR Sport Show on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. What is happening, JR? I've been listening to you for a good little while now. I've called it a couple times, man. The most sensational voice on the radio is you, JR Sport Brief.
No doubt about it, man. Call in now at 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. You know, with all this talk about the national championship game tonight, Georgia winning, going back to back, dismantling TCU 65 to 7.
I'm going to get back to your calls in a second. Someone who might kind of find his way back to college in the college ranks is Cliff Kingsbury, because he no longer has a job in the NFL. He got the boot today by the Arizona Cardinals. And I have been saying this for a year. I remember having the conversation a year ago, just people telling me, you know, about Cliff Kingsbury and, oh, look at the records. And, you know, year to year, they've improved since he's gotten there. I'm just like, no, it's not it's not consistent.
It's not sustainable. And even everything that he's done to I can't even say turn the Cardinals around or what he did despite the injuries, whether it's it's Hopkins for a bunch of games or he's suspended or it's Colin Murray being hurt from like a fundamental standpoint. Like the cards were were never prepared. They weren't ready. They were always committing ridiculous penalties. He was always coaching one half and a team would fall asleep at the other.
Same thing for the season. I was shocked as hell last offseason when a Cliff Kingsbury got a contract extension. They gave him an extension before they even gave one to Colin Murray. And we heard all of the disastrous things that that came out with Colin Murray's contract. Oh, well, he has to study this amount of time and then they had to retract it.
It caught and received so much negative attention. And so Cliff Kingsbury is no longer the head coach of the cards. The Bidwell family got him the hell up on out of there. It shows you how bad they are.
I still can't believe they gave him an extension last season. I'm saying based on what? And so the Bidwell's they spoke today after Chris Kingsbury was given his pink slip and they talked about how hard he worked, even though they fired him. Listen to this.
I don't know if there's a disconnect. There was just performance on the field. I think he put in maximum effort.
He he was in here, as I said earlier. Throughout my lifetime, I've never seen a coach put in more time. And there were just a lot of bad breaks this year.
And I think we got to the point to where it was just time for a change. Yo, why'd you pay the man? Why'd you give him an extension? This year? I guess last year was just DeAndre's fault, I guess. I don't know. They also made it clear that they're going to and they have already been in communication with Kyler Murray about who the next head coach is going to be.
Wow. Cliff Kingsbury. They lost. Well, I guess his final game with his career, NFL career for now.
Lost to the Niners. He spoke after the game and he talked about how disappointing of a season this has been. Disappointed for the players and then obviously, you know, motivation to be a lot better moving forward. I think as a competitor, that that's the first thing that you think of, you know, even watching that team, how talented they are winning 10 in a row.
Just, you know, what it takes to get there and how you can try and be there one day. Yeah, well, we won't hear from Cliff Kingsbury for a while until I guess he's coaching at some new college program. I assume that's where he will go back. Also, Lovey Smith got the boot as well. What a shock, right? What a surprise.
Texans have another losing season as they're trying to finally get in a new quarterback. Yeah, this is what Lovey Smith might as well hear him to know. No surprises. It's what he had to say before he got fired yesterday. First off, there are reports.
I don't know what the reports are. Yeah, I meet with Cal every Monday. I met with him this past Monday. So as far as we talk about what's happening the last game, we understand that totality of the season on what's going on. Do I expect to be back?
Yeah, I expect to be back. You know, absolutely. Oh, man.
Come on. You can't be real when you... Shub, does he believe that? He doesn't believe it. He didn't believe that when he said it, did he? Jared, the question I would have for you is, I'm sorry I'm not answering your question. I believe he, in his heart, he was coming back. Is winning that last game and costing them the number one overall pick, was that a slap in the face to ownership the McNairs? And they said, you know what?
You want to do what you want? I don't think so. You're gone.
I was going to mention that. Look, those guys out there on the field are trying to win and they beat the Colts. And let's see how long Jeff Saturday holds on to his interim title.
I assume he will also get the boot in the most respectful way possible. But when the Texans went out there and beat the Colts on Sunday, they did cost themselves the number one overall pick. It has now gone to the Chicago Bears.
We do know the draft order. The Bears will select number one. The Texans, too. The Cardinals, who we just mentioned, they will select third. The Colts, Seahawks. The Seahawks will pick fifth.
You can understand why. They got the draft pick from Denver for Russell Wilson, so they have their pick. And we know that they were garbage this year at five and twelve.
And so that's the top five there. The Texans can take solace in the fact that Chicago ain't going to take a QB. And I guess that might be the the only silver lining there. They're going to be set with fields. I'm sure that if anything, they will try to protect him or maybe start to put a defensive piece in there, since that that well ran dry while they were waiting on the offense to get things together. Just and I assume we'll have some maybe we'll have another coach. It looks like Allen will keep his job with the Saints. We know Wilkes is he's sitting in a vacant seat as well. He ain't keeping that job.
Tom will tell how these these things get filled out. And then we have Harbaugh, who just a few days ago told everybody again that, yeah, he's probably going to stick to college. This is where his commitment is.
But there's so many rumors about where he ends up. Sean Payton's name is in the mix. He had an entire segment on Fox pregame yesterday talking about how, yeah, he might go back to coaching or he might not or he might stay on TV. Prepare yourselves.
It's going to be an interesting ride when you think about coaches. Eight five five two one two four CBS. It's eight five five two one two four CBS. Let's talk to J.B. calling from here in Atlanta. You're on the J.R. sport re-show. What's up, J.B.?
Hey, J.R. Hey, team. How's everybody doing tonight? Good. How are you? I'm doing well. So I understand that you've moved on to a new subject now, but I just wanted to circle back to the national championship topic about TCU having any business being here.
Tonight. And I absolutely believe so. They they made it here off the strength of their own cleats. No pun intended. And, you know, although they got massacred, it is it is what it is. It's a part of the game, right? Yes. Yeah. Unfortunately, ass whoopings are a part of the game.
I don't think anybody's and no, let me not say that because you do have people who will take the approach of. Oh, man, here you have, you know, TCU did not belong there. They won. They beat Michigan.
They're here in a position that they're in right now. But I think it's more so about the process of how you set teams up to to even get into a championship. Is it a final four selected by committee?
Is it a computer sitting around crunching numbers and strength of schedule? Is it having a 12 team tournament? Allah, you know, obviously, he can't be as big as March Madness, but they'll expand. And the fact is, in four years or five years or whatever the case might be, whenever we get to the expansion, we're going to have blowouts in the college football playoff expanded.
It may not we may not have to wait until the championship game and people will say, oh, it's a waste of time to have 12 teams there. Well, people are watching and the money's coming in. So that's just how it is. Right. Exactly.
And like I said, I don't think it's that complicated. So I guess I guess we'll just have to wait and see. But boy, was it a blowout.
Well, people always find something to complain about. And tonight will will be that until next year. And I don't think we'll we'll see any kind of fringe teams in it next year. We'll see what happens. I appreciate you, JB. No problem. Have a good show.
Thank you so much. Shout outs to JB calling up from Atlanta. We have here Richard calling from Rockville, Maryland. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, JR, commenting on games like tonight are nights where you really have to work hard for your money, I guess. It was kind of a hard game to even watch. It's not so much about the it's not like digging deep into the stats of the game, but there's a conference that nobody wants to see garbage. And we saw ass whooping tonight. Well, here's what I was calling about.
I won't take long. The previous week where we got to see those semifinal games were Ohio State took them down to the last couple minutes. And by the way, I don't usually root for Ohio State, but I do tend to root for the underdog.
And, you know, prove the experts wrong. But boy, that was a thrilling game when they played George, I thought. And then the previous game before that where T.C. you beat Michigan. That was a thrilling game.
So I thought we got our money's worth with those. And my old one of my alma mater's pit played a good game against UCLA. So I thought some of the college games that I watched were actually pretty fun to watch. Another two lane game was good.
So, you know, every now and then it's it's entertainment and it was entertaining. Tonight it was just unfortunate. But, you know, I don't think by having 12 teams it's going to be any better. I do remember that Earl Weaver, baseball coach for the Orioles, once said, nobody's as good as look. They look when they're winning or as bad as they look when they're losing. Sometimes you have to sort of take that consolation in mind that I watched yesterday. The Dallas Cowboys lose to the Washington commanders playing, you know, Sam Howell as quarterback for the commanders. And it was just pathetic to watch what the Cowboys put on the field yesterday.
But that doesn't mean that they're a lousy team. But what it teaches me is I don't bet. I just don't. Anyway, I enjoy listening to you and I just want to remind you that we did have a good weekend last weekend at college football. Sure. Absolutely, Richard.
And thank you for calling from Rockville. That that doesn't. You are 100 percent correct. That doesn't take away from you want to see the best. And we it's sports, right? Like there's no guarantee that that that let me not say that could have been any team. Were we expecting ever to see Alabama to lose like that? I wouldn't expect Georgia to lose like that.
And so I'd be lying through my teeth if I told you that. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I expect the blowout. Anybody could get blown out. Anybody.
Anytime. Any game. Any place. It happens. But you want to see something more competitive. You want to tell me you don't want to see more of a competitive game.
Sixty five to seven. Yeah. The games last week were great. We get it. They were. They were awesome. But today's game.
You don't think we would have got a better result. It's a cliche. We hear it in movies. You see it all the time.
People call me and say it at times. Oh, well, if you play and everybody has a chance and everybody has an opportunity. And that's why they play the games.
And we hear it all. And any given Sunday, any time somebody steps out there onto the field, they have an opportunity to ensure. TCU had an amazing season.
Outside of that, separate from that. Is there could there be a better system to ensure that the two teams that are in the national championship game? Are the two best? Is Georgia that much greater than TCU?
Are they 65 seven? No. If they ran this game back again next week, would the score be the same? I don't think so. But Georgia probably still beat them.
And if we did it a third game, maybe TCU would get by him. I just want to see the best versus the best. Want to talk more about this? I get to more your calls.
