The fake field goal call was a bad deal. It will forever be in the mind of Gus Malzahn and in the mind of his football team.
Auburn linebacker Deshaun Davis, a team captain and as honest as they come, had more to say about Georgia coach Kirby Smart’s decision to plunge a dagger into Auburn’s corpse.
“That’s what they do,” Davis said. “I’m not going to give an honest comment, so — Kirby, we’ve got some words, though.”
In what amounted to the final game against Georgia in Davis’ career, he expounded on the call, citing a famous phrase from his head coach.
“I mean, sometimes karma handles things better than you can,” Davis said. “I mean, that’s how they want to be remembered, that’s what they want to be known for, then — it was, in the words of Malzahn, a ‘bullcrap call.’ We shouldn’t be in that situation. I’ll just say that. I’ll revert back to the positives and revert back to us. If we’re not down 17 points, then maybe we don’t see that play. But y’all know the answer to that.”
You’ll revert back to the positives? What were those, exactly?
