That Was Ugly

THANK GOD I DID NOT PUT MY MOM THROUGH THAT. THANKFULLY, WE DID NOT DRIVE TO ATHENS TO WATCH US HAVE VERY, VERY LITTLE OFFENSE AND MAKE EGREGIOUS ERRORS IN FRONT OF OUR HOME FANS. THE JACKETS WIN THE REGULAR SEASON SERIES AGAINST US IN BASEBALL, BY NOW HAVING BEATEN US TWICE. THE GAME ON THE 13TH AT TURNER FIELD IS NOT FOR THE SEASON SERIES AS WE HAD HOPED – IT IS FOR PRIDE. AS I MENTIONED YESTERDAY, PRIDE IS EVERYTHING. THE JACKETS WERE PLAYING FOR MUCH MORE THAN PRIDE YESTERDAY. WE WILL BE IN THE POSTSEASON, AND THEY HAVE TO PLAY THEIR WAY IN. SHOULD THEY DO JUST THAT, THEIR LIKELY OPPONENT IN THE REGIONALS: THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA BULLDOGS. BIG DROP OFF FROM OUR TOP WEEKEND GUYS TO OUR MID-WEEK GUYS. WE PLAY VANDY THIS WEEKEND WITH A CHANCE TO CLAIM THE SEC TITLE. IN BASEBALL, THE REGULAR SEASON TITLE BRINGS YOU A BANNER. HANG A BASEBALL BANNER AND A BASKETBALL BANNER (THE TOURNEY CHAMP IS WHAT MATTERS IN HOOPS) IN THE SAME YEAR THAT YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM FINISHES NUMBER 2 IN THE NATION: SUCCESS. I CALL THAT SUCCESS. NOT TO MENTION THE OTHER STELLAR SPRING SPORTS AT UGA, OUR ACADEMIC ASCENDANCY, OUR LOVELY CAMPUS, OUR CLASSIC CITY…BUT LAST NIGHT, MAN, THAT WAS UGLY!
