Some of our fans seem to consider Clemson winning as our championship, so I’d probably let this one slide.

so if you win the fiesta bowl, you can be fiesta bowl champs? but if you win a better and more important bowl game, you're not allowed to celebrate that?

The Orange Bowl means nothing............it was a playoff game.

Just like all these games tomorrow in the NFL.
It just "happens" to still be called the Orange Bowl.

Eh, it means at least as much as any other non national championship bowl game that teams get trophies for.

This is not something I really have a problem with under the current framework. I suppose the old bowls want to keep their continuity of having a "champion" every year.

You think Bama would give a crap about the Orange Bowl IF they would have beaten Clemson????

Thats my point.............NOW they have to celebrate that cus they got their butts whipped.

We are the national champs. We beat the reigning champs who were undefeated again.

Well, normally one claims the SEC title after a NC loss. But Gumps told us in 2011 and 2017 that winning the SEC is meaningless. Thus they can't backtrack now. So they need to cling to something, so we have Orange Bowl champs.

I mean, they are champions of the orange bowl...


In 2017 we lost the national title but you're out of your mind if you don't think we celebrate the shite out of that rose bowl win. One of the biggest and best games UGA football has ever played, I'll be damned if it's tossed aside as an afterthought simply because we lost the next game.

As long as the bowl game is just a stepping stone in the race to the Championship, then you're not really champs of said Bowl game.

I mean, I guess you could say...we are Champs of the East lower region of the Elite 8 - in March Madness.

That would be what Bama's doing.
