Georgia Bulldogs Must Sit Home on Heels of Missouri Victory over Arkansas


All the Georgia Bulldogs could do was sit and watch their SEC Championship game hopes slip away, as the Missouri Tigers took control late against Arkansas and clinched their second consecutive SEC East title.

That’s how Georgia had to feel. Powerless to do anything except cheer for a team they normally didn’t care for or about. Powerless to step on the field and give Arkansas a little help.

All they could do was watch and cringe, as Missouri took control of the game in the second half and ended Arkansas’ two-game winning streak on Senior Day in Columbia, Mo. and defeated the Razorbacks 21-14.

Never has so much that was so important to Georgia so quietly slipped away in a game that the Bulldogs couldn’t even take part in playing.

Two teams that Georgia utterly destroyed this season, playing to determine the fate of the Bulldogs beyond Saturday.

Throw that into the dictionary under irony, would you?

With the Mizzou victory, Georgia lost their shot at an SEC Title, a playoff spot, and possibly even a New Years Six bowl game. All the Bulldogs have left is a meeting on Saturday with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to end their season, and leave a positive impression on the Playoff Selection Committee for one of the top bowl games.

It’s time to be afraid if you’re Georgia Tech, because this in-state rivalry called Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate has just turned into a vent of frustration and anger for the Dawgs, and there’s no one they’d rather exact a little anger mismanagement at than their hated rivals.

Next year, the Bulldogs just need to take care of their own business, so as not to rely on lesser teams to do their dirty work for them.
