Georgia got the relatively-easy 35-21 win Saturday at home but Bulldogs fans had some mixed reactions, especially given the amount of real estate given up by the Bulldogs’ defense and the play of the second and third-teamers.
We asked fans for their thoughts on our DawgNation Facebook page. We posted some responses here. Some comments have been edited for content and clarity.
Scott Thompson: “It’s a W, for sure. But you never win games like these, really. But now let’s get ready for some clean, old-fashioned hate next week.”
Robert Paul: “Defense has to play every game. They looked bad today. Gave up way too many yards to be called a defense in the SEC.”
Justin Sisk: “Good win. Defense got a little to lazy. Jerseys look good.”
James Crump: “Second team stunk and made the game closer than it should be. You could leave the first team in to run up the score, but you have to see what you have on second team. Next year class is going to beat out a lot of these experienced players for playing time.”
James David Moss: “UGA doesn’t have an offense to seal a game. We should have never had to punt to Louisiana-Lafayette with three minutes to play. We cannot sustain a drive to run out the clock. Problems still exist on offense and play calling.”
Daniel E. Nelson: “Seems like the program has slid backwards a bit since coach Smart took over. Georgia has had perennial top 10 recruiting classes the last 2 seasons….so I don’t buy the excuse of lack of talent. I hope Georgia improves next year. Anything less than a 10 win season should be considered a failure at Georgia.”
Amy Mazur Godwin: “Winning is always good! But play till the whistle blows and don’t let up on the gas. Should have been 35-0.”
Jimmy Moore: “The defense has problems with a running QB. It had better tighten that up against Tech.”
Royce Appleby: “Kirby if you don’t like it then don’t take your starters out. Keep your foot on the gas. They’re backups for a reason.”
Robert L. Hicks Jr.: “Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney was a bit better in the second half but only by a bit. I just don’t understand him.”
