The Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs are battling for the national championship tonight in Indianapolis, Indiana. Beforehand, the 2022 College Football Hall of Fame class was announced and some of those included happened to be on hand for the big game.

The class includes players such as Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, Colorado running back Rashaan Salaam, Penn State’s LaVar Arrington, Georgia’s Champ Bailey, Texas Tech’s Michael Crabtree, Alabama’s Sylvester Croom, and Oklahoma’s Roy Williams. Former Toledo and Missouri coach Gary Pinkel was also included.

Luck, who was a two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up, was also the Indianapolis Colts’ starting quarterback between 2012 and 2018. Luck retired after that season due to an ongoing cycle of injuries and rehabilitation that had caused him to miss significant time towards the end of his career. His retirement seemed abrupt to some Colts fans, who booed him and chided him for leaving in his prime.

Luck showed up before the Alabama-Georgia game and was shown on ESPN looking pretty healthy and seemingly in good spirits. His look and demeanor caused a lot of reactions to pop up on social media from the football world. Some were happy to see him happy and others were happy to point out who he reminded them of.

Congrats to Andrew Luck for looking like Andrew Luck and living his best life.
