I looked to see if something like this was posted and didn't see it.
My reaction went like this.
When AJ let the ball go I saw Cooper open. Screaming He's Open! He's Open!. When he caught the ball for a TD I went nuts. I jumped in the air screaming YEAH!! and then took off outside into the yard running in circles screaming Touchdown! over and over. Maybe the reaction might be over the top but I was so excited I couldn't think of any thing better to do.
I think I ran a sub 4 40.
Lets hear some of your reactions.

Cooper made it look so easy.
It was for him.... just pitch and catch. Most of our players have ice-water in their veins.
Watching on the TV, I actually saw Coop beat his man off the line and started screaming instantly! THROW IT, THROW IT! And AJ was looking the other direction at first, so i started screaming LOOK AT COOP!!, then AJ turned his head and saw him and i started screaming again, TOUCHDOWN!!
I was happy of course and then I said "we left them too much time."
When McCarron faked the handoff i said "Hes got Cooper!" over and over! I yelled "Touchdown" halfway through the throw
Same here, would have been better to run a little more clock before scoring.
But, at the same time, i was really struck by how dang smooth Cooper is, the way he runs and catches the ball looks so natural.
Exactly what I did. It seemed like he was looking right for a long time.
I Screamed YES!!!! Scared the sh*t out of one of my daughter's 10 year old friends, lmao
Well I was a little more direct. After Yeldon had the first down I looked over and told those with me it was time for PA and a deep ball. They weren't Bama fans so they said whatever your WR's can't get open. Needless to say I jumped in the air, pointed at them and told them great call b/c Cooper was only wide open on that play.
I didn't know what to do so I just ripped my shirt off in the Georgia Dome.
From our seats it didn't look like a very good throw (watching the replay on TV it looked a lot better). We couldn't tell how deep it was so from our vantage point it looked like it was thrown perfectly to the UGA player, too far inside, but it just dropped right over his head and Coop ran under it.
I didn't yell or jump up and down or anything. I simply looked back towards the LOS to make sure there were no flags, looked around at my friends in disbelief, and then checked the clock. At that point I had seen so many ups and downs that I was both worn out and didn't want to celebrate yet because I knew UGA still had a chance. I celebrated like a mad man when we thought Milliner had the pick and then again when I realized the UGA WR caught the ball and the clock was going to run out. Just an unbelievable game.
I actually yelled "he's open!" right after the snap. I was watching Coop right off the LOS and he froze the DB within the first few steps. My biggest fear was AJ would not see him because I don't think Coop was the 1st option...especially after watching him slow down for a few steps on the replay. AJ looked center field before turning to coop.
Was at the game on the Georgia sideline side so the play happened right in front of me. I about s*** myself when I saw Cooper wide open because AJ wasn't looking at him. Then he turned, looked and fired and I just started yelling.
Cooper talked about the play in the postgame. If you watch the play he actually comes to almost a stop and then accelerates. In his comments he said he wasn't sure what had happened to McCarron (sack or scramble) but when he slowed down and looked back he saw the ball in the air. It was at that point he said he better run after the ball. The DB didn't know where the ball was and eventually lost contact with Cooper. Probably not how it was drawn but whatever works in the end!

There's a lot of blood, sweat, and guts between dreams and success.
Exactly our reaction!

I was at North Baldwin Medical Center in Bay Minette, AL in the waiting room by myself watching and jumping up and down screaming in silence because I did not want security to escort me off the premises.
