Those of you who sit in front of your keyboards and proclaim you’re in touch with the inner feelings of Georgia’s fan base and are positive that your pessimism and anger about where the program is at after those two rough losses is a very common attitude (I had one commenter claim last week that it extends to more than half of everyone), perhaps you didn’t notice that Sanford Stadium was very close to full capacity last night and that those who were there were very much into the game, as unglamorous as it was. But such was the case.
There is little doubt that the 2015 season has been a disappointment so far, but the idea that the peasants are this close to storming the castle with torches and pitchforks is… well, not particularly realistic.
Those of you who express yourselves in a blog comment thread or read message boards to get your impression of how your fellow Georgia fans are feeling these days need to remember that the college football corner of the Internet is merely a hot house, and Georgia’s is a fairly exotic one at that. There are a huge number of people out there who manage to follow Georgia football passionately without ever using a drop of bandwidth.
Georgia is still in a division race. Recruiting is going well. The money hasn’t stopped coming in. What that all means is that the level of dissatisfaction isn’t at an apocalyptic level.
Keep it real, fellas.
