Here in Athens, We All Bleed Red and Black

This town bleeds Red and Black. As far as games go, it was a great game. It's a great day to be a Georgia Bulldog.

Well, this is the kind of game that I love to see. Sure, we may not have been facing the toughest opponent but it proved we definitely aren't a bad team. Watching the game, I saw a lot of good things. Aaron Murray seemed a lot more down to Earth today, it looked like he didn't have too much trouble making the play when we were relying on him. He went 18/26 for pass completions which puts this game as his highest completion percent all season (69.2%). Our kicking game looked great, Blair Walsh had an AMAZING 56-yard field goal which I do believe is a new personal best for him (His last farthest kick was a 53-yard field goal against Idaho St. last year). We went for a total of 470 yards, 276 of which were from the passing game. 

Our defense only allowed CCU 112 yards of which only 49 were passing. Bacarri Rambo had an amazing 43-yard interception that unfortunately ended in a fumble, UGA's only turnover.

As far as games go, it was a great game. It's a great day to be a Georgia Bulldog.

Glory, Glory to ole Georgia! 

Final Score:

UGA: 59 

CCU: 0

Beautiful day in Athens. Great game 'tween the hedges. It was nice to see the Dawgs play like they are supposed to against a lesser team. No injuries. No mistakes. No sloppy play. It can be easy to take games like this for granted, but the Dawgs looked focused the whole game. And it was nice to see so many young players get a chance to play. Nice write up!!

Alex, Athens is no different than the Loveliest Village on the Plains. Whereas y'all bleed Red & Black, at Auburn we bleed Burnt Orange and Navy Blue. You'll have to ask your Mom what they bleed over in Tuscaloosa. I suppose it's bathroom tissue and Tide detergent. You know, like in "Roll Tide." As for Costal Carolina, them Buford Wolves could fare well against them. Matter of fact, I tire of hearing folks say that Buford wouldn't do so well if they were playing in AAAAA football. I tell'em that no matter the classification from A to Z them Buford Wolves are bad. When I played football back in the days shortly after the dinosaurs had left, I played left tackle both ways at 165 pounds. Buford has linemen on their team who have a leg that weighs that much. The AAAAA folks, of which I are one, had best leave Buford alone. You might get a game that you wish you hadn't asked for. BTW, I enjoyed your commentary. Don't know what your major is but with what you have written thus far, you would be well in the field of journalism.

Thanks Mr. Orr! I realize that Coastal Carolina may not be the best team in the nation, but a win is a win. At the moment I'm on track to graduate as a Science Education major, but I did toy around with the idea of radio broadcast at one point, which I believe falls under the journalism field here.
