WHAT A DAY!
Parting was sweet sorrow on “Seperation Saturday.” UGA and USC both have commanding victories and look to move into the Top 5 after excusable early season losses.
My mind drifted back to how unjust I thought the Ray Goff firing was. My mind drifted back to how happy I was when Glen Mason announced he wasn’t coming to UGA. My mind drifted back to how happy I was when Jim Donnan accepted the job on X-mas day. My mind drifted back to how unjust I thought the Jim Donnan firing was. My mind drifted back to how happy I was when Mark Richt accepted the UGA job.
I had reached a point where I just wanted UGA to be able to compete with the big boys in the East. Now, I think they have reached the goal that my buddy Norm set out — “Be that bad-ass team that everybody hates.” I look forward to the day (next year) where I get the same looks wearing my UGA cap as folks have gotten for wearing their Miami caps the past couple of decades.
The Sean Jones fumble return will go down in Bulldog lore. David Greene made himself a legit Heisman contender (although he’ll have to pry it from Kevin Jones cold dead hands). Billy Bennett’s kicks wobbled through the uprights. Georgia overame yet even more injuries and penalties. And I hope David Pollack had the courtesy to give Michael Munoz a reach-around after making him his bitch all night long.
A loss to LSU can just be schrugged off like a mild cold. It’s mid-October and my team is in the Top 5. They are no worse off than they were on Spetember 19. Just need one fluke upset to put them in the Sugar Bowl (and give me a reason to spend another New Year’s Eve in New Orleans).
41-14. god damn it feels good to be a Bulldog on Saturday night!
