There’s nothing left to say but, “Maybe next year.”
The Georgia Bulldogs lost to the Alabama Crimson Tide in overtime Monday night, 26-23 as Alabama claimed the College Football Playoff National Championship title at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The last time Georgia played for a national championship was in 1980 when they beat Notre Dame.
Here’s what Georgia fans, players and alumni of the program had to say after the loss:
God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good. So thankful for an incredible season with these seniors who have given so much to this university. They’ve set the standard for UGA football and we will be back. Love my teammates and Go Dawgs!— JakefromStateFromm (@FrommJake) January 9, 2018
Those guys played their hearts out all season. So proud of them and all the work they put in to get to this point. We celebrate with them in the victories and hurt with them in defeat. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for these young men. #GoDawgs #AlwaysADawg https://t.co/CIa3p5uaaK— Benjamin Watson (@BenjaminSWatson) January 9, 2018
I know this hurts.— Evil Mel Tucker👊🏾 (@EvilMelTucker) January 9, 2018
But if you can’t appreciate the journey that got us to 1 play from winning the National Championship.
Then we don’t want you. Turn your Georgia gear in.

In the last 11 months, @AtlantaFalcons and @FootballUGA have blown an average lead of 19 points in second-halves of championship games. Sincere condolences to the no doubt large group of desolate fans with overlapping fan interests.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) January 9, 2018
