Over the history of this website (10 years and change), I have only been able to relish and bask in the Sunday glory of Saturday afternoon win over the dreaded Gators three times. For that matter, my oldest son (13) has only been around for three wins.
It wasn’t this way when I was growing up; hate writing that this is Georgia’s fourth win over Florida in the last 22 years! Did Head Coach Mark Richt save his job by putting down the demons of Florida? Probably …
… when a team has failed so often in this venue, any break in the pattern is major news. “Now that it’s over,” Richt said, “I can say, ‘Yeah, it was a big deal.’ It was a big deal for me personally.”
Georgia’s (6-2, 5-1 SEC) remaining schedule is very manageable, with three consecutive home dates (New Mexico State, Auburn) before ending the season against the hated bumble bees. If Georgia wins out, a once lost season, may actually end with merit, and (hopefully) a springboard to a 2012 SEC title run.
