Georgia football coach Kirby Smart raised some eyebrows with his comments after Georgia beat Alabama to win the College Football Playoff national championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
“There’s gonna be some property torn up in Indianapolis tonight, baby!”” he said.
He was referencing the call made by famous Georgia broadcaster Larry Munson in the 1980 game between Georgia and Florida.

“Florida in a stand-up five, they may or may not blitz, they won’t,” he said on the call. “Buck back. Third down on the 8. In trouble. Got a block behind him. Going to throw on the run. Complete to the 25, to the 30. Lindsay Scott 35, 40. Lindsay Scott 45, 50, 45, 40. Run Lindsay! Twenty-five, 20, 15, 10, 5. Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! … Well, I can’t believe it. 92 yards and Lindsay really got in a footrace, I broke my chair, I came right through a chair, a metal steel chair with about a five inch cushion … Do you know what is gonna happen here tonight? And up at St. Simons and Jekyll Island and all those places where all those Dawg people have got those condominiums for four days? Man, is there gonna be some property destroyed tonight! 26 to 21, Dawgs on top! We were gone. I gave up, you did too. We were out of it and gone. Miracle!”
