I am writing this in stunned disbelief as Georgia just fell at home to Vanderbilt, 24-22. Yes; the Bulldogs lost to Vanderbilt. At home. For homecoming. Lost to Vanderbilt; and no, Ray Goff was not strolling the sidelines.
WTF is wrong with this team? There are no words to describe this hollow feeling. Losses to Tennessee, Florida, and Auburn are one thing, and a loss to Tech really sucks. A loss to Vanderbilt is just unthinkable. Seriously. Un-f’ing-believable.
If you look at the box score, and not the score board, you would assume Georgia won. Georgia led in almost everything that mattered, first downs (21-17), total yards (370-290), passing yards (238-188), rushing yards (132-102), time of possession (33:25-26:35), and Georgia even won the turnover battle 2-1. Of course, none of this matters when you come out on the bad side of a last second field goal, which cost you the game 24-22. Stunned disbelief is the best way to describe my emotions right now.
Go Dawgs! No so much.
When I was a kid and my Dawgs took it on the chin, my dad would tell me not to worry, the sun would still come up. Here is to hoping the sun shines tomorrow, because it looks fairly bleak right now.
