So the Dores chalk up their worst performance against Georgia since a 45-0 loss in Athens in 1976. Fortunately, I missed the second and third quarters watching my 8-year-old son's soccer game. His team lost 4-3 in something of a moral victory.
Not even I could find a moral victory in today's game.
I told you before the game that Georgia has a better team and much better talent. But 43 points better?
Don't tell me it was Larry's fault. He got killed out there. Their secondary ate up our receivers. And our two tight ends set the tone for the game in the first quarter with Brandon Barden dropping a wide open trick pass from John Cole and then Mason Johnston fumbling a reception that was returned for a touchdown before being ruled a drop.
My biggest disappointment? Not playing Charlie Goro. You're getting killed so why not try to accomplish something instead of just throwing the same old guys out there?
It didn't help losing Joey Bailey to an ankle injury in the first half. But we rolled over and quit, at least offensively, like we haven't done since losing 71-13 to Florida in 2001 in the game that cooked Woody Widenhofer's goose. In other words, none of Bobby Johnson's teams ever looked this bad against anybody.
I'll stick with what I said after the EMU blowout: Caldwell must win at least two more games to keep his job. His remaining opponents: South Carolina, at Arkansas, Florida, at Kentucky, Tennessee and Wake Forest.
Don't tell me you think we should set the bar higher. Two wins will be a tall order.
Have a good Saturday afternoon. Remember, Georgia had way more talent than we did.
