UGA 20 (3-1) Arizona State 17 (2-1)


Well, we survived another one. Just barely. My boys are killing me this year. One loss and 3 very close games with last second plays to either keep the lead or take the lead. Ack! I've said it before, but dang boys I'm too old for this. I'm going to have a heart attack before the end of the season at this rate.

Talk about a nasty night for football. It was nasty in Athens last night. Rain rain and more rain. That group of kids who paint themselves every week were all washed off almost before the game started. (Oh and on a side note...........someone really needs to tell them that the Speedo thing just ain't attractive. Thanks.) Anyway, I knew that it was going to be an ugly game because of the weather. I can't blame all the bad play on the weather, but I'm going to give the team the benefit of the doubt and say a lot of it was due to all the rain. Yes, I can be delusional if I want. Its my blog! LOL

This week it was the offense who didn't have it together. Too many turnovers and penalties..........oh wait............that's been an ongoing problem. Crap. But even considering that the numbers weren't all that horrible. Well, rushing yards were not good, but Cox passed for 242 yards. Not bad for conditions and supposedly a pretty darn good defense we were up against.

The defense played pretty well this week. They held Arizona State to 116 passing yards. Which is a heck of a lot better than the 400+ yards of last week. We had a harder time stopping the run this week though. Arizona State's leading rusher had over 100 yards. We did block a field goal too! Thankfully!!! Otherwise we'd have gone to overtime and Lord help us then. The stress would have been too much for this fan. LOL

Oh and I have to say thank you to Blair Walsh for your clutch kicking! Whew!!


This week's stats:

1. Cox was 17 of 31 for 242 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs (ugh!)
2. Total rushing yards 102.
3. AJ Green caught 8 balls for 153 yards (he was also the one who blocked the field goal!).
4. 7 penalties for 55 yards.

Up next week LSWho................I mean LSU. They are ranked #4 (Speaking of ranking.........there are 3 SEC teams in the top 5. And we have to play 2 of them!!! ACK!!) I'm expecting another nailbiter of a game. Oh fun....................NOT!!

Until next time.................GATA DAWGS!!!
