I know this is being written from the Gator perspective, but still, “Florida/Georgia rivalry has life again”? Somebody isn’t getting it – and I say that as a Georgia fan who suffered through one of the most miserable games in the series in ’09. I’ve never seen anyone in Jax, garbed in orange or red, who didn’t want a win and didn’t suffer a loss unhappily in the aftermath.
Here’s the first of his five reasons for that:
The Gator Stomp — Georgia’s players rushed the end zone to celebrate running back Knowshon Moreno’s 1-yard touchdown run nine minutes into the 2007 game. Georgia coach Mark Richt is partly responsible because he told the players before the game that he wanted to see them celebrate raucously when the Bulldogs scored. He didn’t mean on the field, but that’s what happened. It sparked the Bulldogs to a 42-30 victory.
The “Gator Stomp”? There’s your problem right there, bud.
