I don’t even know why I made a big deal out of watching the Ga/Fla game this year. All the prognosticators had told me it would end in heartache for Bulldog fans in a tight contest. I just didn’t think it would feel quite this terrible.
Georgia made a furious comeback in the 4th quarter and SHOULD have taken a 17-13 lead, but instead settled for Billy Bennett’s second field goal (he was 2 0f 3 – that one miss was costly). Florida promptly drove the length of hte field and hit a 33 yard FG of their own to take the lead. With no time outs and 80 yards to go, my Bulldogs wilted.
This feels worse than getting kneed in the crotch or a sprained ankle. Our hopes of another SEC title game and certainly a National title game are over. Now we have 2 weeks to get good and angry at Auburn (who almost always wins in Athens). This team had better show some heart and beat the Tigers.
And I can only hope South Carolina beats UF next week. I need something good to happen in my football life.
Once a dog, always a dog. Not so sweet tonight, but I’ll keep my chin up.
