The day after

The sun came up today, but it sure didn’t feel like it.

It still feels like a nightmare, a bad dream that you can'[t believe happened. To me, the loss doesn’t bother me. It’s the fear that this was Georgia’s best chance at a MNC, and you never know when it’ll happen again.

I felt like I was watching the end of the Friday Night Lights movie.

This is certain – Aaron Murray was one play from being a Georgia legend, maybe bigger than Herschel – and the Falcons would have needed a new stadium right away, because the Georgia Dome would have been destroyed by a bedlam of fans.

Unfortunately it was not to be, another chapter in possibly the most snakebit football program in SEC history.

Losing hurts, anyone who questions the intensity of this team or coaching staff’s showing yesterday is welcome to exit stage right. This team was counted out by most everyone, including a former UGA legend on ESPN and was a tipped pass away from shocking Alabama and the college football world. If you want someone’s head on a platter after that, there’s a Falcons bandwagon waiting for you.

I’m not sure how long it’ll take to get over this loss. I can’t imagine how much harder it’ll be for Georgia’s players – let’s hope it occurs before a bowl game.

    We can’t let the hangover from this affect bowl preparation and recruiting. We have have a B1G team to beat up on.

    This group was as damn good as any group of damn good dawgs ever. And I say that as one who has been critical of our efforts against ranked teams in the past. They played with heart, passion and intelligence. They left everything on the field. That’s all we can ever ask. The coaching staff had the team prepared and their game plan was sound. We saw sixty minutes of the best they had. I’m proud of our team. That was football at its best. Once the players see the film of Richt at the presser I doubt they will have trouble getting motivated to kick some cornhusker butt.
