This is not who you think will win or who you would put money on. Who do you want to win out of the 4 teams in the playoffs

    I posted this in another thread but copy/pasting here:

    I am pulling for Clemson to win vs ND. Fiancée is an alum and we are season ticket holders and I live in SC. Plus, anyone who beats USCe regularly is good for me

    But from a UGA-centric perspective, I would think ND winning the title, then coming to UGA next season and losing to UGA would be our best-case scenario.

    Does not help Clemson or Alabama in recruiting. Don't have to hear about the Big 12 offenses. And we will play the defending national champ at home week 2 (I think it is week 2)

    I think OU can beat Bama. I think the championship game will be OU vs Clemson

    Clempscum, but the smart choice would be ND or Oklahoma since we don't compete for recruits much and we have to play both Clempscum and The Gumps in the future.

    It seems silly to pull for anyone. Short of their being a short circuit in the system somewhere, it’s pretty obvious Bama is gonna win.

    They didn’t even play as well as they could have the first 3 quarters of the SECCG. BUt they’ve been woken now. They know they can’t play like that through the playoffs.

    I hope Alabama runs up the score on Oklahoma's sorry defense and shuts their offense down. I hope ND kills Clempsom then gets boat raced by Alabama. The dawgs will have been the only team to have given Bama a game and everyone else looks second rung. Georgia can use that scenario well on the recruiting trail. Georgia is pushing Bama. Clempsom is a paper tiger. Notre Dame and Oklahoma are years behind.

    Using a similar logic then why not pull for Notre Dame? We are 100% guaranteed to play Notre Dame next year. Same cannot be said for playing Alabama next year. We recruit directly against Alabama, why give them another advantage of a 15-0 national title, the first ever, to hang their hat on? We rarely recruit directly against Notre Dame

    Don’t really care. Part of me wants Bama to steamroll everyone so we can say we probably should have been in there. Part of me wants OU to steamroll everyone because I am sick of Bama and Clemson. ND is the weak sister in the group, so I hope they get steamrolled no matter what...but then it will be cool to beat the defending NCs in the first game next year.

    I could roll with that too.

    I'm pulling for Armageddon just as the semifinals commence.

    On a side note, as the zombies surround fat man Jim and Kirby and begin feasting on their innards I want them to have flashbacks of Rodrigo dancing around like a doomed, helpless gazelle at the LSU game while thinking to themselves "so this is what it felt like...."

    YEAH KIRBY NO MORE TRICK PLAYS PLS

    Dogs..... you gotta pull for the SEC in any all games we play as hard as it may be. SEC opponents are 2/3+ of our schedule every year and we need to keep our strength of schedule element strong. To pull for any opponent outside the SEC (against an SEC opponent) hurts us DAWGS. **** it up.

    @corai3 talked me into my vote.

    Would make our game next season that much bigger- facing the defending champs- and that much sweeter, when we run them off the field.

    I would love for them to be on that high horse when they come to town next year. On another though if Bama was to win, would Lil St. Nicky be ready to ride out into the sunset at that time if he has beaten the Bears record for most NC’s?

    I hate Bama, but I want them to blow EVERY body out and win it all this year. I want them to sit nice and fat next year when we carve them up next year I the sec championship. I hope that we give them they're only loss and that there's 3 other undefeated power 5 teams that makes the playoffs. So Bama misses the playoffs for the first time thanks to Kirby and our football team. I want Saban to watch at home as we win the natty next year. Go DAWGS!!!!

    A stronger Bama is in no way beneficial to our cause.

    I don't consider Alabama our enemy. They have a great program. Our failure to win last year and this year was because we didn't do what was required of a winning team. We made mistakes; in my view, our mistakes were mostly coaching mistakes, particularly mistakes in fundamental coaching decisions.

    There is nothing less helpful to our ability to win than playing to not lose, but we've done it twice against Alabama. Squandering opportunities is never a good plan, but we did it at the end of the first half as if that was garbage time. Let's not even talk about 4th and Terrible.

    I'm pulling for the Dawgs to win the championship, but they weren't a choice.

    I'll get over it someday. Maybe.

    Go, Dawgs!

    I respect your point of view. As fans we all have different pulls and triggers. I want Georgia respected as a national power. Because we're in the sec, we're seen as Bamas little brother. I want everybody to know that we're the only one that can beat and unseat them. Plus I don't want Clemson winning ANOTHER championship before we do. Nor do I want Oklahoma who we beat last year beat Bama when we didn't. And I really don't want notre Dame coming to Stanford Stadium as defending champions. No Bama is the lesser evil in those scenarios. Plus, those other squads are not beating Bama so why waste my energy cheering them.

    I don't see any of that as much of a consideration.
    This is the beauty of sports, do it on the field and nothing anybody says matters, as long as you're not caught cheating that is.
    Bama winning will give them an advantage in recruiting, especially when we're going toe to toe with them for some very important players like Dean, Webb and Smith.

    I want Bama to win so that our returning players will feel like Bama stole (or we gave away) the last 2 National Championships so they'll b seeing Crimson all thru the offseason. But if u gave me some truth serum I'd also have to admit to being a SEC homer.
