If you had any doubt that Mark Richt wanted to send a message to his former defensive coordinator last night, that should have been completely erased at the 4:18 mark in the fourth quarter, when Georgia inserted Nick Chubb back into a 30-14 game. Two minutes later, Chubb blasted into the end zone with the final score of the game, and left Todd Grantham with quite the legacy from the bowl game.
Grantham now has the honor of coaching the defense that allowed Chubb’s single-game rushing total to become the second highest in school history. Chubb set a new Belk Bowl rushing record. And Chubb’s season rushing total has only been bettered by one other Georgia back, Herschel Walker.
Not too shabby.
Throw in a touch of this…
… and I think you could say Georgia touched all the bases. Sweet.
