Why does everybody looking at Georgia’s season keep talking about their hearts?
“I may have some heart issues after this season,” senior offensive guard Chris Burnette said.
Georgia’s thrilling victories the past two weeks — 44-41 over LSU and 34-31 against Tennessee — haven’t gone unnoticed nationally.
“Cardiac Dawgs! Dawgs!” ESPN’s Pardon The Interruption Host Michael Wilbon said on Monday.
Oh, yeah. That.
I do think Lynch puts his finger on something of value from the experience, though.
“I don’t know if we’re going to be that team that just blows somebody out of the water,” Lynch said. “I just think for us, when push comes to shove, we know how to win close ballgames. We almost pulled it out against Clemson … and we’ve pulled it out these past four and we’ll continue to do so as long as we play within ourselves, we prepare every day in practice and we know what’s coming before it hits us.”
They certainly don’t have everything else figured out, but they’ve been through enough to know what to expect and how to execute in a tight finish.
“You’ve got to expect every SEC game to be close, and you’ve got to be ready for every situation,” Morgan said. “That was my first overtime situation at Tennessee, and I’m glad that we got that done.”
There’s something to be said for been there, done that.
