Envy and jealousy, one simple sentence edition

You’ll want to read all of Matt Hinton’s UGA-South Carolina postmortem, but for now, I’ll just leave you with his conclusion:

In the meantime, like all great teams, the Bulldogs’ only real concern is between their own ears.

Nice.

Envy and jealousy, Gamecock schadenfreude edition

Denial.

“We just didn’t have our best day,” safety Steven Montac said. “They aren’t any better than us. They just executed.”

Reality check.

That’s what South Carolina’s players have to say, what they have to believe, but it’s not what happened on the field. Take Mecole Hardman, for example. Georgia’s sophomore wide receiver, a former five-star recruit, had six catches for 103 yards and one carry for 30 yards on plays that were no more schematically complex than, “Throw it over there to Hardman and watch him run past South Carolina defenders.”

Envy and jealousy, welcome back, old friend edition

Seth Emerson, bringing superior snark in today’s Mailbag ($$):

That will be very interesting for the return of Jeremy Pruitt, who hopefully will visit his indoor facility at some point…

Billy Payne may have paid the money, but it’ll always be Jeremy Pruitt’s IPF.

Envy and jealousy, from an unusual source

Perhaps liberated from chasing clicks by his move to The Athletic (for more on that, if you subscribe, you should read baseball beat writer David O’Brien’s remarkable introduction here), Jeff Schultz ($$) has a great line about where the Georgia program is at now:

Year 3 is about handling success. It’s the same situation Saban deals with, the only difference being Georgia’s problem has seldom been, “How do we handle success?”

Remember, peeps, just because it’s sad doesn’t mean it’s not true.

Envy and jealousy, make amateurism great again edition

Man, I wish I had the balls to come up with an analogy like this one:

“One-and-done” is college basketball’s version of the wall.

It’s good because it rings true.
