SEC Championship: One Play, Four Yards and the Alabama Crimson Tide are Champs

Daniel Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Well…

It’s pretty clear everyone agrees that this was the greatest Conference Championship Football Game ever…

Right?!?

The SEC Championship was everything it was advertised and more…

And when the dust settled, everyone is asking the same question…

Why didn’t Aaron Murray and the Georgia Bulldogs spike the ball with 15 seconds left and on the Alabama Crimson Tide 10 yard line?

Why…

He ran up to the line making the motion to spike the ball…

So what happened…

And if looks could kill Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt certainly gave one…

You know Bulldog Nation just bought out every egg in the state and is looking for somebody’s house to take it out on!

But despite whether you are jumping for joy over the Crimson Tide or crying for the Dogs, you have to agree you witnessed a historic game.

The College Football Playoff might officially start in the 2014-15 season, but everyone got a chance to get a sneak peak at what it will be like tonight.

This was simply an incredible game of two evenly matched teams who played in a game that wasn’t dicided until the last play with an margin of error of only four yards.

Yes..

An pass that is not tipped and that four yards completely changes history…

Isn’t it just amazing that the SEC simply cannot do anything wrong!

It’s a travesty that the Florida Gators will jump Georgia and slip into the Sugar Bowl.

The Bulldogs proved they are capable and worthy to play with any team…

And was one play and four yards away from getting a chance to prove to everyone in the nation they could beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

But the Crimson Tide will get its shot for a repeat.

(for the record, this sports writer did pick an Irish vs Tide National Title Game)
