Mike Bobo acknowledges the obvious.
“Yeah, we had some productive numbers and all that, some good stats, but that really doesn’t mean anything,” said Bobo, who recently received a $57,500 raise to take his salary to $325,000 annually. “We lost three games, got blown out in two of them and basically disappeared in stretches of those games and then lost to our archrival, Georgia Tech, in our last game.
“I’m excited about getting out again and getting going. I’m glad we came back in the last game and beat Michigan State in the bowl game and ended on a positive note, but there’s still a bad taste in our mouths around here.”
That’s all I wanted – to hear a coach say what most of us have been grousing about for months. Nothing about the schedule. Or the injuries. Or how unbelievable some of Georgia’s opponents were. Just that the staff and the players didn’t get the job done as most of us would have liked.
That’s a good start. Maybe that ship’s getting tightened after all.
