27-3. It was a good win. When you consider what they had to fight through – the background chatter turned out to be a tougher opponent than Kentucky – it was a credit to the coaches and the players that they were able to put all that to the side and produce a 24-point margin of victory.
The danger, or course, is that they take the occasion to rest on their laurels.
Probably more importantly, a program under plenty of pressure got some stress-release.
“It’s really nice,” senior offensive lineman Kolton Houston said. “Get to relax, go to church happy tomorrow so it’ll be good.”
Georgia rushed for a season-high 300 yards after shaking up its offensive line and using Michel and receiver Terry Godwin out of wildcat formations that included zone reads.
“It gets the train going back in the right direction,” Houston said.
Feelin’ good, eh? That’s the same kid who said earlier that he “thought there had been a complacency…which left the players in a trance & merely going through the motions”.
Maybe they’d do better to keep all that outside noise in their heads.
