    He also asked it in a chicken way, saying "some people say" you and Murray are chokers. I liked the way Richt handled it. Dowdle didn't have the guts to stand up to him. I've never liked Dowdle.

    Georgia has absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. They played their hearts out and came up a little short. This was a classic game. This will be of little consolation to them because losing hurts.

How is his reply going to help your article? it's a stat. Coach Richt seems to be a little detached and I believe it effects his team, they lack personality and killer instinct.
    Would have been a perfect opportunity for Richt to say what I believe to be true, that he blew it by not having Murray spike the ball and give himself two shots at the endzone with a settled team. Like Richt okay but this wasn't a Murray mistake by any stretch of the imagination. He played a great game.

    I hope they never, ever win anything!!!


    PS- stop buying Honda, working way to much!
    I remember watching Fox6 coverage after the "blackout" game in Athens in '08 how terrible their fans were acting behind the camera as they walked by. Finebaum was even part of the coverage and one of their fans came up behind him and poured beer on top of his head. I was in shock and couldn't believe what I had just saw and how bad they were carrying on. Even if it was Finebaum, that shows how bad of sports some of them are.

    And that's why it was too soon to ask the question, that probably would be his answer an hour+ after the game. It was a loaded question at the perfect time, and I bet the the person who asked got what he wanted.

    i have to say that murray and the offense played better and tougher than i expected. their defense played about how i expected, tough early then soft

    i agree with you on their excuse making. with the teams they have to report on, its about the only way they can be

    Mark Richt, his staff and the UGA Dawgs have nothing to be ashamed of or make excuses for. CMR is a great coach and UGA is lucky to have him as their HC. Likewise, every member of the UGA team played their hearts out and left it all on the field.
    As many of us have said, that game went down to the final play, and it could just as well have been the Tide who were left licking their wounds and commiserating in the loss.
    As it is, I feel honored to have watched such a tremendous game played out by two such talented and dedicated teams.

    He may very well have been thinking he wanted his team up by 4 ultimately, but I suspect he was simply trying to get Alabama within 3 points of the dawgs.

    I do dislike bandwagon, exaggerated media. All you can do is fail. Cecil Hurt and the T-Town News tell it like it is. I was born in Atlanta, off of Chamblee Tucker Road and then to Lilburn and finally St. Simons Island before I left for UA.

    Poor UGA fans. Here's a song to take their minds off of things.



    Maybe the wrong song choice to ease their wounds? Oh, well.

    My brother in law was the biggest of UGA fans. Could tell you some stories about Heyward Allen and his dealership in Athens.
    But even he would not read the AJC because you could not get an honest opinion on UGA or the rest of the SEC. He used to say that UGA must be ranked number 1 and a power house by reading the AJC. Granted this was the day of Furman Bisher having a major role in articles.

    Bama Reb,

    I agree. I'm sure glad that I'm happy and they are the ones that are sad today, but the shoe could have been on the other foot. After the late 1990 and early to mid 2000's, I was just sick from Dubose, et al. We SUFFERED for several years because of bad decisions by the GOB's. Thank God Mal Moore hired the very BEST!!!!!!!

    I do believe in my heart and soul that the BEST team won this "game for the ages".

    Richt made some good calls last night, like that 4th down pass from punt formation. He made a few bad ones like at the end of the game. Wasn't Murray motioning to the sidelines, asking if the coaches wanted him to spike the ball? It looked like it to me. He seems to be a heady player.

    Coach Saban had a few bad decisions also, but at halftime he made a GREAT one. We gonna run it down their throats. That must have made Mr. Fluker very happy. However, I could not believe some of the incredible runs that were made by Lacey and Yeldon. There was some great blocking, but there was also some great determination in the runs made by both running backs. And Omari Cooper's cathces, especially the last one was just icing on the Crimson Tide cake.

    No one is perfect. However, Coach Saban has to be VERY good to be able to accomplish what he has at Alabama and at LSWho.

    I hope I never have to live through another coaching change, but if I/we do, we just need to hire the BEST coach in the USA and have all Bama fans contribute to the war chest. Winning never gets old when it comes to the Crimson Tide.

    RTR
