Today was a big day for college football. Georgia Bulldogs stood to defend their title against the challengers: TCU Horned Frogs. It was a highly anticipated matchup, and well, it did not disappoint, at least for the Bulldogs fans. Shaquille O’Neal, just like a lot of us, was watching the game, sitting on the edge of his seat.

Georgia registered a record win, taking down TCU 65-7 in the Championship Game. It was a blowout win, to say the least. Many NBA players had picked sides for the game. Luka Doncic, who had sided with TCU, was in attendance with his head coach, Jason Kidd.

Other players such as Donovan Mitchell, Trae Young, and Josh Hart talked about the game on Twitter. After the game, Shaquille O’Neal took to his Instagram to post about the game.

Shaquille O’Neal faces reality, congratulates Georgia

A few days ago, the Inside the NBA crew were discussing the upcoming NCAA Championship game. Georgia super fan Ernie Johnson brought a Bulldogs helmet to the studio. Well, Shaq being himself, he bet Ernie that he’d eat a horned toad if the Horned Toads lost to the Bulldogs in the Championship game.

Well, as we saw tonight, that bet didn’t go well for Shaq.

Facing reality, he put an Instagram post and captioned it,

“the face u make when u gotta eat horned frog legs congratulations @georgiafootball
