Over/under for the number of times you said out loud Saturday night "Go Eddie!" or "Run Eddie!"? Putting mine at 36.
If he ran I probably screamed it 5 times every time regardless of how far he went. Mines probably 50+
I'm not sure I ever said his name, but I said "Run It!!" a hundred or so times.

Mine would have been more, but I was saving my voice for when UGA was on offense. In the 4th quarter that stadium was as loud as I have ever heard any stadium. Dome makes a huge difference.
Not as many times as I yelled at the TV for them to run the ball in the first 20 minutes of the game.
I looked at my wife and said the coaches are going to lose this game b/c they are not going to run the ball. Like every team we have faced this year UGA could not stop the run. It has been obvious all year and for some reason we still threw it in the big games more than we ran it.
Once we started running the ball I knew we would win. I said we will wear them down and win in the 4th. A bit off on that as UGA had more fight in them than I thought as they didn't wear down as much as I thought they would but we still won in the 4th.

Multiple times every rush... He had 20 carries... so Over/Under would easily be 40
I was sitting next to a couple of people who were working the game for the conference (I won't tell you who, but they weren't like league officials or anything) in the press box and even they were "Why isn't Alabama running it more" during the first half.
I'm not sure when when I came up with the Forrest Gump reference for my game story, but it was before halftime.

go Ediie ...Go Eddie....GO EDDIE!!!!
In the first half, I said "run the ball!" no less than 10x. In the second half, I was just saying "go, go, go!" Probably said that at least 20x.
Every time he had a big run, I would get up say..."ED LACY...from Dutchtown High School Geismar Louisiana....then i would tell someone next to me how LSU thought he wouldnt make his grades and we ended up with him and TR in the same class.
