Gee, where have we heard that before?
Seth Emerson delves into what he calls Georgia’s “ugly-loss syndrome” and coaxes a quote out of Jordan Jenkins about the loss to Missouri in 2013 that makes me want to hurl something at my monitor.
… The Tigers came into Athens on Oct. 12 unbeaten but without any impressive wins. Georgia was 4-1, and although injuries had piled up by then (Gurley and Keith Marshall were both out, as were Malcolm Mitchell and Michael Bennett) the Bulldogs were caught by surprise.
“Coming into that game I don’t think anybody thought we were gonna lose,” Jenkins said. “I think a lot of guys were remembering the 2012 game against them, saying, ‘OK it’s the same team as last season. They’re the little brothers of the SEC, we’re gonna come in, dominate, clock in, clock out, leave.’ And as the game went on we quickly realized that was a dire mistake we shouldn’t have made.”
You’re virtually pulling people out of the stands to play on offense, the biggest reason you kicked Mizzou’s ass the previous season now wears a Steelers jersey and you think the game’s gonna be a cakewalk? Yeah, “dire mistake”, alright.
Jeebus. Words fail me.
