Different  coach, same results as #Bulldogs lose big in a key #SEC tilt.

It has been heralded as a change in culture. A new attitude, and sharper focus on winning ways under new Georgia head coach Kirby Smart. Smart an assistant under Nick Saban at ‘Bama,  and a former Bulldog player has energized the fan base with his approach to the game.Wins in their 1st 3 games stoked the faithful and pundits into thinking UGA would be an SEC title contender now as they prepared to face Ole Miss in the their first big test of the season. Unfortunately Georgia failed, losing big to the Rebels in Oxford 45-14.

Georgia again looked like a team whose players did not show up for a big game. This was the same story under previous coach Mark Richt. Plenty of credit has to be given to Ole Miss though. QB Chad Kelley threw for 2 TDs and ran 41 yds for another. His unstoppable crew of receivers were led by TE Evan Engram and WR Demarkus Lodge. The 2 combined for 8 catches, 168 yards and 2 TDs

Georgia looked like they weren’t in the same class as the Rebels. Freshman QB Jacob Eason was under pressure all day. Like most of this year, the Bulldog receivers continued to drop passes as if the balls were oiled up. This included two huge drops by Isaiah McKenzie, who had the big catch against Mizzou the week before. And sadly RB Nick Chubb had to leave the game with an ankle injury. At the end of the day we were once again treated to an uninspired performance in a big game by the Georgia football team. Can anyone say ‘Overrated’ again?
