It just hit me.....

....how disappointing the 2009 Georgia football season was. There were alot of bad moments this year - heartbreaking losses at home to LSU and Kentucky, getting smoked (again) by Florida, watching the UGA defense give up about 800 yards passing in the span of 8 days to South Carolina and Arkansas, etc, etc. But sitting at work and listening to a pre-game show is a pretty terrible feeling. A Macarena blaring over the Sanford Stadium loudspeakers circa 1996 type feeling.

I can only hope the team feels better about what they have to do today. I'm not sure the coaching staff has faced a bigger challenge this year than the task at hand in Shreveport, and it has nothing to do with X's and O's. The motivators on the UGA staff will have their hands full. Maybe talent just wins today, and if it does, UGA fans should feel good about that. But I'm not sure that these seniors, some of whom have seen UGA play in 2 Sugar Bowls, a Chick-Fil-A Bowl and another New Year's Day Bowl during their careers, can be excused for being a little lethargic today.

Talent wins. Order restored. Somewhat.

you know it is bad when the ajc.com didn't have one direct link on the home page about the game today.
