Georgia Review: Almost out of our misery
That’s the one word we can use to sum up that performance really. Yet another week, another L added to the win and loss columns. It’s safe to say that most fans are numb to these type of losses, it’s hard to root hard and invest so much emotionally in a team that you know can’t put it together, which is extremely sad. I stay up until god knows what time to watch these games, and I will forever love Auburn football, but it’s safe to say that this particular regime is coming to a miserable close.
By second touchdown of the game (Georgia’s touchdown), the game was as good as gone. Despite the home field advantage, it would have been hard to expect this team to claw back after those early touchdowns. Your mentality is zapped once your chances of making a bowl game are lost, and talk of coach firings are rife. By halftime, the score was 28-0 and the second half wasn’t much to marvel at either. Auburn got little going offensively, and Georgia scored 10 more points, despite calling off the dogs.
In the end, it was just another week closer to the end of the season, which is unfortunate. I don’t like dreading Auburn games or seasons, and I came into this season with solid hopes, but we can all agree that there is little reason to be excited. There are however a few exceptions, such as the stories of Lutzenkirchen and Jay Prosch.
Two weeks left, and both of which will be in-state. Auburn hosts Alabama A&M next week — which is safe to be our third win of the season — and then we get to take a trip to Tuscaloosa to play Alabama the week after. Alabama and Georgia will likely meet in the SEC title game, which should be a pretty good game. Richt has a lot to prove, and then there is Saban who will have everything to play for now that their National Title hopes are all but out the window, barring catastrophic collapses by two of Notre Dame, Oregon or Kansas State.
Apologies for the shortness of today, it is quite sad that I summed up everything that is going on right now in just four short paragraphs. Unless you count coaching/behind the scenes rumours, which are everywhere right now and if you look in the right places, some of the things you’ll hear/read are pretty extraordinary, most of which are likely false, but who knows.
That’s yer’ lot, have a good week.
