goes to David Ching, who nails it:
… This is Georgia-Florida, a series where the Bulldogs have now lost 18 of the last 21 meetings. If Georgia is ever going to turn things back in its favor, it needs coaches like Grantham lighting a fire under a Bulldogs team that too often seems like it’s playing in quicksand in Jacksonville.
If that means the rivalry occasionally slips into over-the-top professional wrestling antics, all the better. They’re not supposed to play nice.
I like Georgia’s 2007 end-zone dancing. I like Urban Meyer’s celebratory timeouts the next season. I like Georgia’s entire roster linking arms on the sideline and getting hyped before overtime last Saturday.
And yes, I’m all for Georgia’s defensive coordinator coming unglued when the other team’s kicker directs trash talk toward his sideline before attempting the game-winning field goal in overtime.
If I’m a Georgia fan, I like all those things because it shows the rivalry means as much to the players and coaches as it does to me.
Believe me, I do.
