OUTBACK BOWL! WOOHOO!


It's a nice consolation prize for playing a good 24 minutes of football on Saturday. Yeah, I know there are a lot of folks out there screaming that we got passed over, but when your special teams get beat like a rented mule and and the scoreboard looks like that well, you cut your losses.

Besides, when it's a bowl besides the BCS, does it really matter?

Anyway, this post isn't meant to denigrate the season's accomplishments. It was a hell of a year - frankly one that I didn't think would materialize after the 0-2 start. And we're SEC East Champs, so that ain't half bad. 

I'll give kudos to Richt here, as we didn't fold up like tent after the two devastating losses to start out. We stuck together and got to ten wins, which is no easy thing, despite the "easy schedule" that we rode out. Grantham and staff have absolutely coached their ass off, so they deserve a lot of credit here too.

Hi, ho Tampa.

  1. This is what UGA fans can expect as long as Richt and his alter ego Bobo hang around. Richt is an Outback Bowl kind of coach. Well, if that's what UGA fans want, that's what they'll get. Bama, LSU and others will go to the BCS bowls. Happy mediocrity.

  2. BCS games since 2001, when Richt arrived:

    LSU: 5
    UGA: 3
    Bama: 3

    So Richt needs to be fired because he doesn't have as many BCS bowls as LSU, who I'm pretty sure has the most out of anyone?

  3. Adam, give me a recount on those BCS Bowl appearances starting In 2006. None for UGA in the past 6 years. How many for Bama, LSU and UF?

  4. Why only go back to 2006? Somehow you forgot about the 2008 Sugar Bowl.
