David Hale blogged yesterday about Georgia’s mindset in the post-Stafford/Moreno era and provided this quote from Mark Richt:
So as the Bulldogs move into the third week of voluntary summer workouts, Richt said there’s a distinctly different mentality among the players without Stafford and Moreno aboard.
“They’ve really decided that they have to come together as a team and work their tail off and get after it,” Richt said. “You can’t sit there and rely on a Stafford or a Moreno to carry the team.”
There’s certainly something to that criticism. But let’s not forget that the 2007 squad did a nice job of surfing the wave that those same two (particularly Moreno) created en route to a seven game winning streak to finish out the season. Some years things mesh better than in others.
