CFB Championship Preview

January 9, 2023 Uncategorized Comments Off on CFB Championship Preview

Judgment day is finally upon us, and it is the ultimate David vs Goliath matchup for the College Football National Championship. On the David side, you have the TCU Horned Frogs. We all know the story by now. They were picked to finish seventh in the Big 12 following their 5-7 season last year. They have a first-year head coach Sonny Dykes with no prior head coaching success at the collegiate level. They won nearly every game this year in an unconvincing, but dramatic fashion. They are led by former backup QB Max Duggan who is the heart and soul of the Horned Frogs. TCU is currently a heavy underdog going in with the Horned Frogs being given 13.5 points. The reason for the big spread is because of who they are facing… the mighty Goliath which is the Georgia Bulldogs. The Dawgs have become THE team of College Football over the past two seasons which has led them to the familiar territory of the National Championship game. This will be the third National Championship Georgia has played for in the last six seasons. Last year they conquered the beast that is Alabama and won their first National Title in 40 years. This year they have been great again which has given them an undefeated record, and the chance to win back-to-back National Titles. The entire buildup to the game has been about whether can TCU keep this game close. Can the Horned Frogs shock the world and pull off one of the biggest upsets in College Football History? I believe TCU has the capabilities to keep the game interesting. The key, as it often is will be the quarterback play for both teams. TCU has to get a great game out of Max Duggan and their star wideout Quinton Johnston. The opportunities are there for TCU to do just that given Georgia’s struggles in defending the passing game. On the other side of the ball, it will be up to the Horned Frog defense to rattle Stetson Bennett, the Georgia quarterback. If TCU can complete both of these objectives then they will have a chance to not only be competitive but win. Do I think the Horned Frogs will keep it competitive? Nope. Georgia was fortunate to beat Ohio State and I’m banking on the Bulldogs playing much better than they did against the Buckeyes. I’m also banking on Georgia respecting TCU far more than Michigan did. My gut says that Georgia will do just that and win this game comfortably. Give me Georgia -13.5.
