    I feel so bad for TCU, it's embarrassing at this stage and Georgia won't stop.

    Currently 65-7 and I hope at this stage that Georgia will finally show a bit of class and play soft zone on defense and run clock on offense.

    Brutal result.

    Didn't wait up for it, but horrible, ruthless, relentless stuff from Georgia. They are the outstanding team for the last probably 3 years, so deserving winners overall. After only watching the highlights, but would any other team have done any better last night? Hard to tell, TCU there on merit I guess. Maybe another similar style team like Alabama might have stood up better but who knows.

    Stetson Bennett has been a huge part of all this. His story is wonderful and it'll be a movie some say. It's very hard to gauge just how much he influenced all of this.

    I'm not sure how he'll do in the NFL but if attitude, self-belief, drive and determination were the qualities required he'd be the best of the best.

    The biggest issue is his height, he's only 5'11".

    It's a brilliant story alright, certainly triumph over adversary and a great advertisement for perseverance. I knew he had dropped down to a junior college at one point, but I didn't realise he played in Ellisvillle MS for that year - I'd know that area because I lived in the next town over for a while, and to describe it as a backwater would be an understatement! A real, real small town in a poor part of Mississippi, and not a football hotbed by any means.

    Credit to the lad, and he's been very good all year and particularly last night, but I wonder how much is it him and his talent and how much is it the Georgia system and the players around him, particularly the O Line and McConkey.

    While his drive, application and attitude deserve great credit, and what he has already achieved deserves great credit in itself, I have my doubts if he has enough talent to bring him a successful NFL career. As I say, that's not to denegrade him or what he has done, but success at NFL level is different gravy.

    Success or failure at NFL level shouldn't take from his college career though.
