It sure does feel good!!

I'm talking about the Dawgs taking a big bite out of some Gator tail in Jacksonville on Saturday. I'm still giddy!!

Coach Richt is catching a lot of slack for that whole team celebration in the end zone. I think it was a good call. It fired up a team that has been in desperate need of firing up in recent years. Especially in this game. I don't feel that it was intentionally disrespectful to the Gators (if they want to take it that way then that is their problem). I don't think it was about the Gators at all. It was about the Dawgs and them going out with attitude and having a little bit of fun. It was about emotion. We needed that. I just hope that it carries over for a long long time.

Here is a little clip of it if you care to watch. It is all over the UGA blogs out there so I'm not sure where it originated from, but I got it at The Bulldawg Blawg. Enjoy it. I sure do. ;-)

I have to say that this is the first UGA/FL game I've really enjoyed watching in awhile. It's always fun to watch when your team wins, but it was more than that. It looked like they were having fun and there was so much emotion. I love that. I've missed that.

Want to know some stats? Here ya go:
1. 196 rushing yards (Knowshon Moreno carried 33 times for 188 yards)
2. 217 passing yards (Stafford was 11 of 18 and had one for 84 yards to Massaquoi)
3. We sacked Tebow 6 (yes count them........6) times!! He had only had 5 sacks on the year coming into this game............way to go defense!!
4. 19 first downs
5. 10 of 13 on third down conversions (I'm really liking that percentage)
6. We scored every time we entered the red zone (4 for 4)

I think this one one of the best games we've played this year.

I just read today that Knowshon was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week. He's already been named SEC Freshman of the Week twice this year. I've said it before, but dang he is fun to watch and I sure hope we have him for 3 more years!! Go here to vote for him for Freshman of the Year.

To my boys and to Coach Richt.................congratulations and thank you! You've brought the swagger back. ;-)

I have to disagree with you on this one Paige. If a perenial football powerhouse like Georgia can't get fired up about playing one of their biggest rivals and one of the best football teams over the last decade and has to resort to something juvenile then they have other problems. I think that Georgia and Coach Richt are very classy but the ball was dropped here. Congrats on the win, though, as it will be nice to see another SEC East team besides the Gators play in the SEC title game.
