“Because I hope it’ll turn out differently this time.”

That’s what I told my kids last night when they asked me why I was watching a replay of last year’s LSU game.

It didn’t work.  Sigh.

This moment of disappointment was brought to you via the Orlando Sentinel’s post today on A.J. Green.

    That clip shows where the greatness of Green lies. He doesn’t burn the opposition with speed, he doesn’t juke defenders. He goes up in a crowd and comes down with the ball. All the fans who think we can win by getting the ball to AJ in space aren’t recognizing what makes AJ great- because he catches the ball in traffic.

    I have watched over and over too. He was showboatin’, no doubt in my mind. I could have given him 30 yards in penalties.

    That loss still makes me sick. I have little doubt that it had a general hangover effect on the team and that led to them stinking up Knoxville the next week.

    If the KO coverage team didn’t suck so much ass this would be a non issue…wait for it…but we still got hosed.

      Sorry MD but I do not agree. The refs threw the flag knowing that a normal return gets LSU close to midfield where they can get to field goal range with only 2 first downs. The fact that the kick-off coverage was bad only served to mask what the refs did. Without the bad kick-off coverage and the breakdown on D that allowed the TD, LSU just runs clock, gains a little yardage and kicks a winning field goal. This one is definitely on the stinkin’ refs.

    He was showboating? The guy scored a go-ahead TD with a minute left against a team that was ranked in the top 5 at the time and he didn’t as much as pump his fist. Anyone who watches collge football on a regular basis could give you HUNDREDS of more demonstrative reactions after a TD where nothing was called.

    The bottom line is Willie might not have stopped LSU if they started on their own 25, but it would have been nice to see it play out the say it SHOULD have.

    I tried to watch it but I couldn’t bring myself to. If the O had scored anything in the first half we blow them out.

    • Watching Cox overthrow a wide open AJ for a long TD pass was painful.

      • I relived that moment daily for weeks after the game. The cancerous thought would casually roll through my mind like a steaming ball of shame and rage, just past my outstretched and straining hands. That was my dream; that was my nightmare.

          You folks all need to get your minds right about this. What happened is not a bout an overthrown pass or any other isolated bad play for UGA. The game was fixed. The refs were not going to let UGA win this game. I do not know if the refs were owned by the mob or just had money on the game themselves. (If you think that’s crazy just ask the NBA which had one of its refs go bad and end up in jail for betting on games he reffed). The only way the Dawgs come out on top in this game is if they blow out LSU to the point that the refs cannot effect the outcome. Get mad–get VERY mad! But get mad at the refs who “called” the game and at Mike Slime..er..Slive. That is who enables this sort of thing to happen.

    Wow, what a Florida bent to that article…perhaps AJ is best known nationally for being the BEST WR IN THE COUNTRY…I have never heard one reference from national pundits about the bullsh*t penalty call all off-season…typical Gaytor crap…

    If they had called the clip on Scott’s td- we win. That was a non-call. They were setting up for the media darlings to win it all and they did.
