Knoxville became heart break city on many levels for the Georgia football team Saturday.
Our season slipped through the SEC East standings like the ball going through Reggie Davis‘ hands on 3rd and 9. Whatever disease Tennessee has to give up big leads, we caught it in Knoxville.
For this game, I met some friends I knew through a dating service at a local watering hole. Don’t judge – it’s tough for us 37-year-old sports fanatics. And sadly, the women I met at these dinners were better football watching buddies than the guys. My rule: if you can’t tell me your team’s two-deep, you don’t get a second date. I set the ground rules early.Pregame – I stuck to the theme of being cheap – not spending money on tickets, traveling up to Knoxville and had whatever was cheap and on tap.As for the game, I did not know that we finally tied the series up last year, 21-21-2. First play from the line of scrimmage set the tone for the game when Nick Chubb went down for the game, but hopefully not his career. It was fitting that Keith Marshall had to step up at the stadium where he was injured two years ago. But, he couldn’t get it done, and we had to turn to the passing game, yet again. For the second week in a row, did we abandon the run game too early?
