Break, but don’t bend.

If you’re looking for a weird ray of sunshine for the Georgia defense right now, I’ve got one for you.

Here’s a clip of the winning score in the Ariz0na State-Washington game.

That’s the passing attack that couldn’t catch a cold in Athens about a month ago scoring on a fifty yard bomb in the last ten seconds of the game against the defense that held Southern Cal to thirteen points.

The truly bizarre part of that play was that ASU had two guys running wide open deep.  Even a Bryan Evans-led secondary is less clueless than that in coverage.  It’s a credit to Danny Sullivan that he didn’t freeze up from having options on his throw.  As it was, the play stands as the longest completion of his career.

So at least that didn’t happen in Athens.  Take your triumphs where you can get them, Dawgnation.

    So Washington has two Bryan Evans-type defenders? Who knew?

    Blutarsky thanks for trying but you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel for encouragement there. The Washington DB’s were so far off a 1A high school quarterback could have made that throw.

    Love it! Sullivan’s reaction is priceless. Its like he’s trying to hide it from the defenders by kneeling down, but he’s obviously sitting there with his arms out in disbelief, as if to say “I guess I’ll just take the TD if you aren’t gonna cover anybody” At least its good to see other schools can look as bad as our guys sometimes too. And it took a little longer than expected, but they got that excessive celebration penalty out there. Don’t let these kids enjoy a game winning TD guys, way to go!

    We’ve had guys more open than that in the back of our secondary.

    That was the team which beat Southern Cal, so let’s give a little credit to Mr. Sullivan, who seems to get none from his own fans. Great win for ASU, I am happy for them but I do hope to see Washington return to their former level of competitiveness to add another challenge in the PAC1. I think USC is going down again before the regular season is over.

    Sarkasian expected to ask Damon for permission to interview Willie as lateral replacement for Dick Holt, who used to be DC at Washington, before his secondary thought the game was over and stopped executing.

    Sarkasian expected to use the It’s Always Sunny in Microsoft’s Seattle sales pitch high and tight to Willie. Counterpunching, Richt expected to give Willie a several hundred thousand dollar pay raise, hire some more defensive assistant coaches from Central Michigan and award Willie with some more associate to the assistant head coach titles to keep him here like we did when FIU almost came knocking for Willie last year.
