Georgia, A Near 2 TD “Fave” vs TCU (A 1/2 “Jeopardy Question) In The 1/9 Title Tilt

January 3, 2023

The defending college football champion and top ranked Georgia Bulldogs are roughly 13 point favorites vs T.C.U. (Texas Christian University) in the 2022 season title game to be played on Monday night January 9th. (Will ABC “over the air” it, they did not regarding the “semis” and I did not watch and slept as the clock literally and figuratively struck midnight for Ohio State in the later semis tilt).

While each Big Ten losing team in the “semis,” actually showed something in defeat, a long history of being denied in title bids affects, even disproportionately.

However, despite the fact Ohio State’s many 1 win from the title losses when I rooted so hard for them (’69-’75, they did “title” in ’68, winning the Rose Bowl vs U.S.C. despite a brilliant 80 yard touchdown run by one Orenthal James Simpson), still haunts and that Michigan has only the ’97 season share (Nebraska quarterback Scott Frost, out as their coach these 25 years later, led on the field and in a campaign there for a share and got it!) to “show” since winning “it” in ’48 (also the last year the Cleveland baseball team, known as the Indians until 2022, won the World Series), perspective ought to be gained and is progressing.

For the record T.C.U. built a “comeback score” (21-3) lead and never were caught in a (51-45) win (well) over Michigan. At night, Georgia down 2 touchdowns at least twice got a Stetson Bennett (A “Stead,” namely, Steadman Shealy QB’d Alabama to a repeat title, legendary coach Paul Bear Bryant’s 5th and last in ’79, however unlike Bennett, who led the first of what is now a probable 2 straight titles, but that is why they play the games, did not QB the ’78/first of two straight titles team) to Adonai Mitchell touchdown to tie, an extra point and a subsequent 50 yard field goal miss by Ohio State, to (42-41) Ohio State and move into their second straight title game and third in six seasons, having split in the other two such games.

In same calendar 1938, Davey O’Brien, pictured above led T.C.U. to their lone national crown.

He capped a Heisman Trophy winning season with I believe, a touchdown pass and 4 kicking points in the January 2, 1939 bowl (Sugar) win vs Carnegie Tech.
