I need a lithium prescription. It’s hard to believe that today’s team is the same bunch that took down LSU less than a month ago.
And, no, I don’t want to take anything away from the officiating, which was so egregious that I honestly can’t imagine what Steve Shaw will have to say in the aftermath. With the targeting calls, it felt like I was watching a bad episode of “Can You Top This”.
But let’s not forget that the second bad call never happens if Swann doesn’t muff the fair catch. Which leads me to this: what was the point, the strategy, to having Swann in there at that point instead of Davis?
That’s not even the biggest thing eating at me right now. It’s not even the second biggest thing eating at me right now. That would be trying to wrap my brain around a major conference football program not being able to find a competent long snapper eight weeks into the season. Honestly, my mind is boggled by that.
Topping my list right now, though, is why on God’s green earth, with all the injuries, with all the special teams mistakes, with all the uncertainty on the defensive side of the ball, would Bobo think it’s a smart move to play not to lose?
Georgia blew a game when it got two interceptions, one for a pick-six, held Jordan Matthews to 89 yards receiving and basically played a respectable game on defense. It lost to Vanderbilt.
I’m prepared to hear a lot of bullshit in the next few days about how close this team is, about how they’ll get the problems fixed, the youth, the injuries, the officiating and other stuff. I’m not buying any of it.
