The Natty - Domination and Humiliation: It was a clinic on one side. Embarrassing on the other. Georgia - impressive. TCU - pitiful. Final score: Georgia 65, TCYuck 7.

How many even watched after halftime? I got through the third quarter but had really already checked out.
I even flipped over to watch the local news. Then I caught some Andy Griffith. It was the color years. Although not good, it was better than this game.
By the way, ESPN's Megacast Skycam is the way to go. ESPN Deportes is fun too.
This was supposed to be the game of the year. The game for all the marbles. It was far from it.
TCU's "Cinderella" season imploded in front of the college football world. They didn't belong after all.
We saw the most lopsided national championship game in the history of the game. That was primarily because the Bulldogs put it all together and played their best game.
Another reason for the disparity - we didn't end up with the best two teams.
I'm not going to go down the list of the teams that would've put up a better showing. But I don't know of any that could have done worse.
Georgia's largest margin of victory prior to Monday night was the 46-point win over Oregon - another pretender. The 58-point differential on Monday night was the biggest in the 15-0 campaign. Kent State even kept it within 17.
The Bulldogs just have better talent than TCU - far better. Their roster is comprised of four- and five-star players - bluechippers. TCU's is not. Don't blame Sonny Dykes. He showed up to a gunfight packing a water gun.
The AP voters still put TCU at No. 2 - as if it really matters. They did beat Michigan. We can blame Harbaugh for this. If they had taken care of their business, they might have kept it within 30.
The committee deserves some of the blame. They should've at least dropped the Horned Frogs to No. 4. Then we could've gotten this bloodletting out of the way in the semis. Maybe we would've gotten the Ohio State/Georgia thriller on the main stage.
Georgia has given us the first repeat champion in the playoff era and the first to go back-to-back since Alabama's 2011 and 2012 seasons.
Kirby Smart has his second title. That ties him with Dabo Swinney. They're the only two current coaches with multiple rings behind Nick Saban's seven.
Is Georgia the new Alabama? The same was uttered when Clemson beat the Tide - handily - for Swinney's second natty. He's still got two today.
So, Georgia is Clemson right now. They have a ways to go before dyansty talk or being the new Bama. They are clearly the team to beat today though - not the Crimson Tide.
"Way Too Early" rankings are already out there with Georgia at the top. Vegas agrees. You can't blame them. Alabama and Ohio State are right behind them.
The three frontrunners will have some big cleats to fill in 2023. Stetson Bennett, Bryce Young and CJ Stroud are done with college football. Maybe you can just plug another guy in with little dropoff. We will see.
TCU is not on Vegas' favorites list - ala the season we just completed. Their chances of winning it all - 40 to 1. Maybe it should be a million to one.
