Timing is everything

Sometimes, timing is everything.

Once the Gurley bombshell broke, one thing that immediately jumped out was that being on the road against Mizzou may have been the best thing for this team.

Halfway across the country, free of close friends and family and the buzz around campus, free of the fog of gameday on campus may have been just what this group needed. It enabled them to focus in and send the entire country a message, and it showed. The memo was laid out – if you think that this team will fold because its best player is sidelined by archaic NCAA rules, you have another thing coming.

And as if the day could not get better, we got to spend the rest of it watching Auburn, Tech and Florida lose. Icing on the cake!

Saturday was one of those moments, kind of like when Georgia hired Jeremy Pruitt, when you thought to yourself, “this is real? This is UGA football and not someone else?”

For whatever reason, it has been quite some time since Georgia dominated someone like it did in all phases of the game like it did Saturday that was a quality opponent. 2006 Auburn comes to mind.

Will this team click as well against Arkansas as it did on Saturday? Probably not. I’m already worried about stopping a run game that’s stronger than what Mizzou had.

But that’s a worry for another day.

For now, let’s enjoy this one.

Go Dawgs!

    Hutson Mason is amazing.

    He now ranks #1 in the nation in accuracy vs ranked teams at 78.6% completion rate. #1. What?

    We never needed him more, and he showed up and put in a stellar 92.6 qbr (No 4 in the nation this week). #4. What?

    Hutson is ranked #28 nationally now for the season in QBR. WHAT?

    Kid is now 5-1 in 2014. WHAT?

    And we just beat a ranked team 34-0 on the road, WITHOUT TODD GURLEY! WHAT?

    I know we all remember how A Murray fell apart without Gurley vs Mizzou last year, and 3 turnovers.

    Hutson has his team playing like champions right now–WITHOUT GURELY! WHAT?
