Georgia did just about everything it needed to do this weekend, and it lost on a handful of flukey plays. I'm not going to make excuses if Georgia can't put it together going forward, but the people calling for Richt's head over that game are generally sidewalk alumni and idiots. Looking at the way Georgia played on Saturday, I don't see anyone they play for the rest of the season that they absolutely can't beat. I'm not saying they'll win the next 10, but this is still a team that could win nine or 10 games including the bowl.
There you go again with all that un-dawg-like reasonableness, eh?
It must pain you to be associated with so many idiots.
Has there ever been a coach that has tortured the dawgs more than "the ole ball coach"? Well, other than Urban Meyer ...
I think your QB is very good, especially the way he rallied after he threw that pick-six. The tight-end is ridiculously good, but USCeast did a great job of taking him completely out of the game. The defense is stout, especially up the middle (Boise couldn't run on them at all). There is no shortage of talent, that is for sure. A comment about the BEF in WWI comes to mind -- "lions led by donkeys". I mean, why schedule a young team with such a brutal opening pair of games?
I imagine you'll run off a string of 4 wins in a row now and the fanbase will be back to their mindless woofing soon enough, but the damage has been done as far as SEC East dominance and national relevance are concerned -- unless Garcia gets drunker than usual I don't see Spurrier and Co. dropping two games to SEC opponents the rest of the way while you guys run the table.
Now, if GT can get by Kansas this year (unlike last year's debacle
) the rest of the schedule might not be a total disaster, what with the turmoil in UNC and Miami ...
