Roller coaster

In all my years of Bulldog fandom, I can’t think of a wilder three-day period than the one we’ve just experienced.  The Gurley suspension was a gut punch, but hardly the first.  AJ Green’s suspension was such and then there’s the granddaddy of them all – Herschel’s early departure for the pros.

But Walker left during the offseason, giving me time to adjust.  And the disappointment over Green simply grew deeper as Georgia’s 2010 nightmare of an early season unfolded.

This weekend, though, was different.  This time, the sadness and anger barely lasted a day, as Georgia went to Missouri and delivered what was one of the most satisfying and complete victories of the Richt era.  And the topper came last night, as Agent Muschamp’s latest gift to his alma mater, a timely Gator turnover, led to Georgia finding itself alone and atop the SEC East standings.

No, I didn’t see this season unfolding quite like that.  I doubt you did either.

All this is to say that I understand the emotions that were in play in the message threads yesterday.  I just hope everyone’s gotten them out of their systems.  It’s turned out to be a great year to be a Georgia fan.  Enjoy the moment while it lasts.  Because I suspect the ride will continue to be a wild one.

A banner month

As far as traffic goes, two things sell really well around here:  happy times and coordinator changes.  Last September was the first time GTP cracked the half million hits/month barrier; second best month at the blog was this past January, when… well, you know what.

Since Pruitt’s still here, I guess this past month has to qualify as more happy times, as GTP celebrates a new traffic record:  564,621.  That’s almost 19,000 hits a day.  I used to go entire months without seeing that much traffic.

Thanks to all the regulars and not-so-regulars for dropping in.  Hope you’ll stick with it.  And I hope the program has more happy times in store for us.
