The Georgia Bulldogs are Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl champions and are headed to the national championship game in Los Angeles to face the TCU Horned Frogs at SoFi Stadium.

Dawgs offensive lineman Amarius Mims was a big part of that win for the Bulldogs, and he spoke to Sports Illustrated about his journey, and how he almost transferred out of Georgia after the 2021 season.

"“With Warren being out, he and I had talked about it for four weeks straight man just about you know, when we are not new to it, man. We are not new to this moment, you know, I’m saying the way we prepare man, it just, you just got to seize the moment, you know, I’m saying I’m just glad I was able to get out there and you know, contribute to the team.”"

It’s great to see a player stick through adversity and wait his turn rather than chasing from one stop to another, hoping to become an impact player.

So you want to go see the Georgia Bulldogs play for their second consecutive national title in Los Angeles? Well, break out your high-limit, low-balance credit cards, because it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.

According to WMAZ in Macon, Georgia, the average cost per fan will be well over $3,000, not including food and ground transportation. Of course that distance and cost didn’t seem to deter die-hard Dawg fans from going to see Georgia play in the Rose Bowl a few years ago, so it’s a safe bet there will be plenty of red and black in the stands at SoFi.
