Fan Sound Off: Eyes of DawgNation turn toward Mississippi State

DawgNation was a little subdued after UGA’s 42-14 victory over Samford Saturday. One reason, the game was expected to be a rout. Another reason – the Bulldogs were 32 1/2-point favorites and failed to cover the spread.

The eyes of DawgNation quickly turned to Mississippi State and the upcoming SEC Conference schedule – which begins next Saturday. Mississippi State marches into Athens after crushing No. 12 LSU 37-7.

Here are some of the remarks and comments shared on our DawgNation Facebook page. Some comments have been edited for space, content and clarity.

Jade Christopher Spell: “The Dawg secondary is a little concerning. Tighten up the game play a bit, and get ready to go to war with the other Bulldogs.”

Jimmy Moore: “Forget Samford. Mississippi State just stomped a mudhole on LSU. Better get that game plan ready.”

Craige English: “Maybe Jacob Eason will be ready next week. His arm is superior to most playing today. Yeah, he’s not a rah-rah guy. I’d rather see his experience on the field as we enter the SEC schedule.”

Mike Buglioli: “We have the players and Kirby will keep getting the players. We will be fine and Georgia is back. You either get on board or you get left behind.”

Erin Gee: “Mississippi State may be a good challenge-in conference program building opportunity for both teams, but that game’s outcome won’t affect either team’s chances of making it to the SEC Championship game.”

Jason Glausier: “I want to see us make the long pass plays-in-stride to score some quick touchdowns, plus good hard run plays.”

Jason Lambert:  “If we keep defending the run like we are and against Notre Dame, I think we will surprise some people. The defense is playing good football. Not to great yet but close.”

Ben Payne: “It’s nice to be 3-0. But it will be the last consecutive ‘W’ we get for a few weeks. Next week will probably be a bomb. Team will collapse. Fromm might get hurt. The ‘D’ is the only bright spot that will be talked about after the game. Sorry Dawg fans, just being real.”

Jon C. Allen: “We saw that the offensive line had trouble with an FCS team. Same trouble next week, and UGA is 3-1 with a conference loss.”

Scott Norman: “Secondary has got to be better next week after giving up 200-plus yards in air. They are not going to run on us. Go Dawgs.”
