NSFW: It’s Meltdown Time! Championship Week

New, 100 comments

A special edition of post season pain.

<p zoompage-fontsize="15" style="">NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Alabama vs Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Hey there, friends. Welcome back to a bonus edition of the Meltdown thread! I wasn’t originally planning on writing one this week but there was just too much anger for me to deprive you of this greatness.

Championship week is about putting the crowning touches on a college football season. It’s supposed to be about showing off elite teams facing off, and also somehow Pitt and Northwestern were there *gives side eye to camera* so it wasn’t 100% glorious.

There’s only two teams for this week’s meltdown but let me tell you, there’s enough salt from each of these two to out-salt a pot of ramen. I care so much about all of you that I dove into the Facebook comments for this one and I now have cancer. Let’s talk about the sports games now.

Texas faced off against Oklahoma for the second time this season in hopes of spoiling their rival’s chances at the playoff. The two teams had a classic Big 12 shootout until the fourth quarter when the Sooners started to pull away and effectively sealed the game with a safety. Oklahoma won 39-27.

Alabama and Georgia faced off in a rematch of the national championship game in the same stadium with a different Alabama starting quarterback. Tua got hurt early but tried to force his way through the game to absolutely no avail. With around 11 minutes left in the game, Tagovailoa left the game with an ankle injury leaving the Tide in Jalen Hurts’ hands. Jalen led the Crimson Tide down the field for two consecutive touchdown drives to give them the lead on a quarterback draw for a touchdown. Alabama took the 35-28 win in a reversal of their win 11 months ago.

The language below is filled with Facebook comments so I advise proceeding with EXTREME caution. It gets bad in there.

OK NOT COOL. HOOK EM

What the hell is this? A big 12 game where neither team scores 40?

Joke’s on you Oklahoma, we didn’t want Bama anyway

Todd: “This OU defense, much maligned, is making some plays”

Sean: “Well they’re maligned because they’ve just legitimately been statistically garbage, Todd”

I’m going to film my young son singing the fight songs to all 300+ college programs just in case he goes on to play a college sport.

Oklahoma’s defense is going to be so rested for the CFB playoffs after not having played all season.

Can’t lie, I’m salty as hell right now and incredibly frustrated with the refs, but credit to OU for playing some awesome football. Never thought their defense would be the difference in winning the game.

Kris Boyd probably should start showing up for meetingsperhaps someone in there can explain to him how much money he is hemorrhaging, weekly.

Fuck Jerryworld That place is a shithole and I’d rather Texas go to a home and home with ousucks if they ever left the cotton bowl. Nothing compares to Texas/ou at the cotton bowl.

fuck jerry up his old wrinkled ass for that money gouging shit hole with no atmosphere

Someone needs to punch this kid in the taint

One does not simply defeat Kyler Murray in Jerry’s World

Losing sucks. Losing to your rival sucks more. Losing to your rival to push them into the CFB just might be the worst. The suckiest, if you will.

“He got me,” Herman said of that OU kid mocking him mocking Drew Lock. “That f***ing OU kid boomed me.” Herman added, “He’s so classless,” repeating it four times. Herman then said he wanted to add the OU kid to the list of people he works on classiness with this summer.

I know we give each other a hard time, but Oklahoma in all seriousness. You guys can go fuck yourselves.

Oklahoma came in clutch with a Big 12 point win

Dr Pepper > God > family and friends > Oklahoma > Texas confirmed

Dr Pepper player of the game: Penalty Flag

Dread it. Run from it. Tim Beck offense still does nothing

Sunset heart hands is lucky she’s hot

128 YARDS IN PENALTIES, WTF

Big 12 really didn’t want to miss out on their shot at the playoffs. That officiating was something else.

We lost but my smoked brisket turned out really well so that’s nice.

When Texas isn’t back

Ehlinger and throwing soul-crushing, game-ending interceptions: Name a more iconic duo

What in the hell is our 4th quarter offensive play calling philosophy?

We can’t seem to do jack shit in Q4. We lost this game in 4Q. We lost by 12. 4Q score: 12-0.

I don’t have the feels right now, but I’m guessing our 4Q scoring is among the worst in the nation.

I don’t think it’s simply getting conservative, either... because we don’t get conservative, we just get bad.

Hell yes Texas got hosed!!!! Those officials were awful!!!! Bullshit calls all damn day!!!! Wonder how much OU paid them?!?! Hey! Guess what?!?! It’s 8:12 and OU still sucks!!!!

The Big 12 needed Oklahoma to win because they want a team in the playoffs. The only thing OU had to do was show up and the Big 12 was going to handle the rest

Lincoln teaches his team to be assholes while our coach teaches our boys to be classy

Stay classy Texas

add back the 2 TD’s AND the interception the were taken away because of stupid penalties and we’d have won big. We weren’t beaten by OU, we beat ourselves.

Would like to say congratulations to the Refs on their Big12 Championship!!

Decades from now, as you lie on your death bed, surrounded by family and loved ones, the decision is made to pull the life support. You’ve lived a good life. Had many great experiences. Touched the lives of countless people around you. As your body begins to fail and everything is black, you feel your spirit begin to lift away. You are at peace. Your family cries and you think that you hear the words “we love you” but it’s mixed up and staticy. The last thing you hear as the final brain connections fire... Is boomer sooner.

SEC OFFICE INVESTIGATING DAWGS

2017 Bama: “oh, you game-planned all year to beat Jalen Hurts? Fuck you, here’s Tua”

2018 Bama: “oh, you game planned all year to beat Tua? Fuck you, here’s Jalen Hurts”

Loses Heisman QB

proceeds to have SEC offensive player of the year QB entering the game

what the actual fuck lmao

There are missed calls every game then there are blatantly MISSED calls. The hit out of bounds, hit of Fromm, and DPI are all blatant and could of changed the game in UGAs favor. It’s ridiculous that I can spot Bamas oline holding on plays but refs don’t see it. They do.

My most masochistic prediction came true

Golden Alabama State Crimson Warrior Tide

Be Georgia

Have lead over Bama

They swap QBs

Lose

Be Georgia again

Have lead over Bama

They swap back

Lose again

God hate Georgia so much.

At this point I think Georgia just loses to Bama to spite Auburn.

Kirby Smartn’t

You know how in the video game Kirby gets the power of whatever he sucks up into his mouth? Well Kirby must have inhaled a WHOLE BUNCH OF FUCKING IDIOT JUICE BEFORE THAT FAKE PUNT SHIT

Was gonna say you couldn’t write a script like this, but then I remember Georgia fans have seen this movie a million times already.

Kirby Smart takes off his mask at the end of the game to reveal…

“It was me, James Franklin!”

At least we made Saban cry lol

Never been so upset in my life watching a dawgs game, ever. First time in all my dawg years I turned the set off and walked away. I knew as soon as I saw Fields trotting on the field what would happen. I was just praying that we would not try it, or at least adjust to the defense and just punt the damn ball...take our chances in OT. As soon as the play failed, I turned the set off and walked away....could not take any more. My dog even ran from me, my wife gave me this incredulous/puzzled look as I walked away...didn’t say a word. I just left to cool off..came back 30 minutes or so later. 1st time I have ever done that (always believed)..and I have probably been to more games or watched in my lifetime than any I know.

It took me about a day or so to cool down. With all that being said, I thought the game plan for Bama was almost perfect, we played better than I anticipated. My only real complaint other than the 4th and 11 was the rotating of the QB ….AGAIN. I am sure that is a Kirby thing, he’s stubborn IMO (imposing will (QB and etc.).... but being stubborn is not necessarily a bad thing, there are also some good qualities. But to me, that decision was WAY too high of a risk. If I have a wish for future games, I would hope he learns from all of this and then let his OC do his job. I have more trust in Chaney to make decisions on offense.

This loss is on chat’s non-believers. they put bad vibes in the Karma Wheel...cost ‘Dogs this year’s SEC championship, and possible mythical national title. https://uga.forums.rivals.com/proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fupload.wikimedia.org%2Fwikipedia%2Fcommons%2Fb%2Fb7%2FWheel_of_Karma.jpg&hash=477ae6b78aa6d596b9cdd29a89cdd70c

SEC screenwriters literally reusing the same arc from last season smh

I swear Justin Fields must have something on Kirby Smart

“If I don’t get X number of touches a game i’m telling the cops what you did”

That 4th & 11 fake punt was the Gary Danielson of plays

Well, the cycle is broken! Alabama was set to obliterate us but instead they only beat us in heartbreaking fashion again! Hahahahahahahaha fuck this stupid sport.

4th and 11

Bah gawd is that Les Miles music?!

This HURTS Georgia’s chance at the playoffs

I live in Georgia near Athens and was at a bar watching the game. A girl said, “Good Tua is hurt! This is our fucking year! Fuck him!” What a fitting end to this game for her.

This is why I’m an Atheist

Nick Saban showed the whole nation last night what kind of coach he is when he called for a QB sneak with a hurt QB. He doesn’t care about any of his players or anything but winning. He said what he said last night because he knew GA would not get in. Hell no he don’t want to play GA cause he knows GA is the better team.

Imagine if you peed gasoline and every time you peed someone came up and lit your gasoline pee stream on fire. I’d rather that happen to me than have been born a georgia sports fan. Go dawgz :(
