Fridays in the Humidor: 1/4/19

It’s been three days since the Sugar Bowl and still the wildest thing isn’t the win, but the sight of Bevo charging towards UGA. That not only put a charge in the fan base, but also the team. When the clip ran before the game the locker room “absolutely exploded.” I won’t say it made a difference but others who were in that room would disagree. They sure came out hot.

Coach V’s Grades – Sugar Bowl

Fun game to watch. We made too many mistakes and missed too many tackles but we stuck a bunch of busy into their operation. We turned several “big play” potentials into minimal gains with tremendous hustle—because we all wanted to. That was a very talented offense last night—those two guys ran hard.

Texas too tough for Georgia, 28-21

NEW ORLEANS — When it came time to actually play the Sugar Bowl, one team played tougher and executed at a much higher rate than the other. It just wasn’t the one most were expecting.

Maybe Bevo XV’s charge at opposing mascot Uga X should have been a sign of the impending game. Or maybe it should have been Texas’ opening drive where every play gained yardage. By the end of the night, it was clear who the better team was on January 1, 2019. No. 15 Texas defeated No. 5 Georgia 28-21 to win the Allstate Sugar Bowl and achieve a 10-win season for the first time since 2009.
