Playing At Home and On the Road: A, F

The Dawgs are undefeated at home. The Bulldog’s biggest demon the last two seasons is poor opening minute play. The Dawgs have exocised that demon at home and the results could not have been better – it’s hard to do better than win them all.  A

The Dawgs are 1 – 3 away from home, including 0 – 2 in Madison Square Garden. The Bulldogs had two excellent opportunites to win big games in Madison Square Garden but again, the  demon of poor opening minute play bit. And of course, Georgia lost to Tech on he road.

You can’t go winless in the Garden. You can’t lose to Tech. Sit in the corner. F

Has Georgia dismissed the poor opening play demon since early season road disappointments? We’ll know a lot more soon when the Dawgs travel to Manhattan, Kansas to play Kansas State on December 31.
