We’re Georgia fans. We bitch. We moan. It’s kind of our perverse birthright. Even though the Dawgs are 4-1, currently sit atop the SEC East and are ranked seventh nationally, that hasn’t slowed the grumbling down much.
One thing has changed, though, at least since last season’s South Carolina debacle. We haven’t complained about this team not showing up. And before you brush that off, consider that since that game, they’ve faced a #2, a #2, a #16, a #8, a #6 and a #6. Nor did Georgia buckle in Knoxville last week, a place where that’s happened more times than we’ve liked.
It hasn’t always been pretty, true. But they’ve been there in every game since. Some of it’s Murray, some Gurley. But lately, some of it’s the result of line play on both sides of the ball that’s been solid, if not spectacular. If Georgia gets that today and avoids playing the role of generous host, I think that will be enough to overcome the injury concerns and what’s likely to be another… um, interesting day from the secondary.
I’m about to head out, so consider this your game day thread.
