With five titles in a nine-year span at Alabama, plus another crown won at LSU, he's now the G.O.A.T. and the Bear is No. 2. At many other programs among 2017's top 10, quarterback battles rage, and they'll dominate the conversation before-and into-next season.

On a lighter note (and honestly meaning no disrespect to a coach losing a job) but Lamar Thomas was fired at Kentucky. They won it in Atlanta, releasing a cathartic cheer that reverberated from Augusta to Albany, Augusta to Athens.
There are the hedges, the beautiful city of Athens, the classy uniforms, what's not to love? After that gut punch, a sack to face second-and-26 from the Georgia 41 had to be one last mountain too steep to climb. Swift led the team with 88 yards rushing and a touchdown in the Southeastern Conference championship game win over Auburn.
