If you’re a Georgia football fan you probably feel like curling up in a little ball and blocking out the whole world right now, and that’s ok. Let’s talk it out and get through this together.
Yeah, it sucks. No other way to say it. Losing sucks, losing to Alabama sucks even more, and losing to Alabama in a championship game is the pinnacle of suckdom.
And now that the game and the winning streak are over, we can wield our blamethrowers and point them at Mike Bobo, or the officials, or players who didn’t seem to bring it when we needed it most, but it won’t help the pain.
We can play “what if” all night long, and wax philosophical about a false start penalty and subsequent missed field goal, or a ball that bounced the wrong way and helped the Crimson Tide instead of the Bulldogs – but “what if” never changed what actually happened.
We can take trolling from Alabama fans (and the rest of the country for that matter) personally, and get into silly arguments, looking like bigger dopes than the dopes who are baiting us.
None of it will matter, and none of it will change the outcome of a painful 27-24 loss at the hands of Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide
Georgia football fans should hold their heads high and be proud of this team
How about we turn all those negative feelings around, and be thankful, grateful, even ecstatic about what we’ve witnessed for the last three seasons.
Twenty-nine. Twenty-freaking-nine straight wins. An SEC record. And when you are on a winning streak of that many games over multiple seasons, every single win weighs on you even more and becomes increasingly difficult.
Three undefeated regular seasons in a row. Thats…unheard of in modern college football.
Two consecutive national titles and damn near close to playing for a third. How many aged Georgia fans from the 80s and 90s would have killed for even a shot at a title after1983?
We’ve watched once-in-lifetime players over the last three years — such as Stetson Bennett, Jordan Davis, Brock Bowers, Jalen Carter, and D’Andre Swift — Saturday after Saturday, making special things happen.
We’ve seen generational defenses put up gaudy numbers and then do it again the next season after having the roster gutted.
Georgia has demonstrated the “Next Man Up” mentality better than any team in the nation with all the talent lost to the NFL, graduation, the transfer portal, and injury, and we got to witness it firsthand.
Best of all, we’ve watched a young, inexperienced team grow up before our very eyes and do things that many people thought they wouldn’t be able to do. The last time we saw that happening, Georgia won a national title the next season.
So yeah, go through the pain. It’s the only way to deal with it. Let those emotions fly.
Cry, scream, eat a few containers of Ben & Jerry’s…whatever it takes to get through it. But let’s do it together, leaning on each other like the Bulldog Nation always does. Whatever outsiders say about Georgia fans or this incredibly resilient Georgia football team, we have this.
Win or lose, regardless of opponent or situation…I said it’s great…to be…a Georgia Bulldog!
