Is This Real Life? Georgia Loses to Mississippi State 24-12
“Is this real life?” Georgia lost to Mississippi State 24-12 and now sits at the bottom of the SEC.
The loss drops Georgia to 1-3 overall and gives the Dawgs their first three game losing streak under Mark Richt. Also, the Bulldogs are 0-3 in the SEC for the first time since 1993.
Georgia could only muster two field goals through 58 minutes and finally scored a touchdown with 1:27 left in the game. But the TD didn’t matter, only in the final score.
What is wrong with the Bulldogs? Certainly, the Fire Mark Richt contingent will grow louder tonight and the rest of the season.
But does anyone really think Richt will be fired this year? I don’t think he will. If anything, he may be forced to make more changes to his staff. The Dawgs lack imagination on offense and the offensive line has underperformed all year.
Todd Grantham was brought in to shore up the defense, but that is a project that may take some time to correct.
It’s hard to believe the Mark Richt era has fallen to this level. It’s also hard to believe that we are actually talking about firing Mark Richt. Everyone knows his record and what he has done for UGA.
