Rob (8:17 p.m.): How many beers are required before noon tomorrow?
Jamie (10:35 p.m.): I'll go ahead and speak for the fans of the losing team tomorrow and say the winning team is full of classless thugs.
Zach (9:06 a.m.): Enough with you downplaying, but I hope you're right. Roll Tide.
Chad C (9:15 a.m.): Crack don't kill, crack make money.
Rob (9:36 a.m.): So did they play All I Do is Win Sometimes last year?
Rob (9:38 a.m.): No lightning yet.
Maguire (10:04 a.m.): Don't be a pessimist.
Maguire (10:04 a.m.): Pump that sunshine!
Pedro (10:25 a.m.): My take — 70-plus total points. Julio 250-plus receiving, Cam 250 rushing, Fairley ejected for throwing punch, Chizik sticks with sweater-vest, Saban has 5 on-air f-bombs.
Dad (10:48 a.m.): Y'all please be nice.
Jamie (10:53 a.m.): Get ramp lady on a mic so I can hear it from here.
Jamie (1:02 p.m.): Gene was zipped at 80 degrees and sunny so I would imagine.
Whit (1:37 p.m.): Verne just said McElroy was having his picture taken with Lou Saban ...
Whit (1:56 p.m.): Trying to use Cam as a decoy, methinks.
Pedro (2:02 p.m.): "I don't even have an explanation for this," quoth Gary on the AU defense on Julio's TD. "The explanation is poor defense," quoth my father-in-law.
Maguire (2:11 p.m.): Keep pounding away.
Eric St. Clair (2:17 p.m.): Hey Fairley, karma's a bitch.
Maguire (2:17 p.m.): Made that [expletive] pay.
Whit (2:18 p.m.): Probably a weak call and a warning to everyone. Not much to it really.
Jamie (2:19 p.m.): Bull shit but it doesn't matter.
Pedro (2:22 p.m.): He was stomping & high-stepping, starting right near McElroy's head and going toward his teammates. Kinda weak call, honestly.
Maguire (2:38 p.m.): Dammit!
Pedro (2:38 p.m.): "That punt barely made a first down."
Pedro (2:44 p.m.): E-3 on that 2nd down pass play.
Jamie (2:47 p.m.): On to Atl. You have the best coach in the country. Congrats on the W.
Whit (2:58 p.m.): We'll get a TD before half. No worries.
Jamie (3:14 p.m.): Darvin caught the tipped ball. We don't challenge. Fml.
Whit (3:15 p.m.): Whew ... Usually three empty possessions in the red zone don't find 'Bama in this position.
Pedro (3:15 p.m.): Not good enough.
Dad (3:16 p.m.): Should be 35 to nil.
Pedro (3:17 p.m.): Or 2 more.
Maguire (3:42 p.m.): Newton might be the dumbest [expletive] I have ever seen. We need to light his ass up for that.
Whit (3:50 p.m.): All right negative nancy. Lotta football left to be played.
Maguire (4:00 p.m.): I'm afraid you're right. Got to take the momentum back.
Maguire (4:10 p.m.): Did our D think the game was only 30 minutes long? Did they think they could just coast in the 2nd half?
Whit (4:20 p.m.): Keep that to yourself! I'm trying to be positive!
Pedro (4:21 p.m.): Not gonna cut it.
Whit (4:30 p.m.): Tell the jumbotron it's not the boss of you.
Maguire (4:44 p.m.): Have we picked up the RB out of the backfield at all today?
Maguire (4:47 p.m.): Our feet are full of bullet holes.
Pedro (4:52 p.m.): McElroy's unconscious.
Whit (4:55 p.m.): Right shoulder injury. Maybe concussion.
Jamie (4:56 p.m.): Damn.
Maguire (4:56 p.m.): Goddammit. I can punt more consistently than that.
Pedro (5:10 p.m.): Hanks is hurt. Julio is too, but he gutted it out.
Whit (5:12 p.m.): Chizik when asked about the game and team — "God is good."
Jamie (5:27 p.m.): Never been so out of it, to be in it. This one will be remembered for the ages.
Maguire (5:56 p.m.): We knew we needed to finish drives. What's most disappointing were the stupid mistakes and penalties where we hurt ourselves. I'd rather they just whipped us all day long than us have the upper hand and let it slip away like that. Dammit!
Pedro (6:56 p.m.): My mother-in-law is vetoing the "Julia as Pippi Julio" outfit.
Whit (12:36 a.m.): Nevada!
Halcombe (11:01 a.m.): On a different note, my youngest has taken on a fear that a fish has gotten into his pants ... true story.
Dad (11:14 a.m.): Who is that playing Michigan?
Dad (11:15 a.m.): Maybe Ohio U.
Halcombe (3:43 p.m.): Bought, and am now wearing, Wrangler jeans and have yet to have the urge to send work acquaintances pix of my junk.
Maguire (6:02 p.m.): Did you swallow some grass? I was thinking a blocked kick and return as well.
Maguire (6:05 p.m.): Great clock management by Miles here.
Maguire (6:18 p.m.): Petrino and Mallett are both whiny little bitches.
Maguire (6:20 p.m.): You can take Petersen out of the ghetto, but ...
Chad C (6:21 p.m.): This has Les Miles written all over it.
Chad C (6:21 p.m.): Never mind.
Pedro (6:47 p.m.): Live from the cesspool of the South ...
Dad (6:47 p.m.): Beat Dothan.
Whit (6:47 p.m.): To hell with Georgia!
Pedro (6:47 p.m.): To Hell with Georgia.
Dad (6:53 p.m.): Glory glory.
Pedro (6:56 p.m.): Probably not a good idea to watch this game with Julia. She's now a risk to yell "thug" at other children in playschool. We should stop before this goes further.
Jamie (7:04 p.m.): Amazing how #8 seems to get the same amount of attention as all other UGA receivers.
Jamie (7:51 p.m.): I was telling someone earlier today, between Oregon, AU, TCU, Wisconsin and Stanford, ratings will be the dump no matter what.
Jamie (8:49 p.m.): God I love watching Tech.
Pedro (9:06 p.m.): Per the Tusc News coverage of the Leeds-Gordo game, "Mother Nature did the Gordo High School football team no favors when she douched the field with rain."
Dad (9:15 p.m.): How bout dem Dogs.
Pedro (9:20 p.m.): This play is Richt's job.
Maguire (9:21 p.m.): That's 2nd-half 'Bama in the red zone.
Maguire (9:22 p.m.): Damn you. I was choosing to remember differently.
Jamie (9:29 p.m.): Dan Mullen is wearing gloves. Is it that cold in Oxford or is he just a [expletive]?
Jamie (9:52 p.m.): Tech scores to cut it to 7, stops UGA on 3 plays and got the ball back and Bob Davie says, "I think Ga. Tech may have gotten some momentum." Really?
Zach (10:00 p.m.): I should have listened to you re: GA.
Maguire (10:01 p.m.): Sucks to be Blair.
Maguire (10:03 p.m.): Is there something in the water in Georgia that causes you to fumble the ball?
Jamie (10:14 p.m.): As soon as Georgia fans see "Birmingham Bowl" next to their name the jubilation will mellow somewhat.
Maguire (10:17 p.m.): Was Tech expecting the knee? Or is Bob Davie right? (Perish the thought.)
Halcombe (3:31 p.m.): My 2-year-old's OBVIOUS quote of the day: Santa is a good man.
Halcombe (3:35 p.m.): That was followed by: Daddy, are you a good man? Thanks son.
