Damn Good Dawg.
I still can't get over the absolute whiny bitch move some of our fans pulled on Saturday when they booed Mohamed Massaquoi and then followed that with a bronx cheer when he was benched.
That's the lowest moment since the 1999 Auburn Implosion. That night in 1999 we lost EVERY SINGLE RECRUIT that visited campus.
Is that the type of program you want to be a part of? The type that has so little tolerance for any failure or bumps in the road whatsoever that you boo? The type that eats its own and runs off quality players and recruits?
Those fans don't deserve to watch success on the field. Mo Mass has been busting his ass for Georgia, and he's in a slump. But he won't be in a slump forever.
You don't boo the kid that works hard, is trying to make plays, never runs his mouth, never gets in trouble off the field, and has made HUGE plays for you in the past. Personally, I don't think you boo any college athlete. But even if you're a horse's ass big enough to boo someone in college...you sure as hell don't boo THAT guy.
If anyone was going to get booed, it should be the pot smoker who constantly commits penalties, doesn't give full effort and has been a loafer for 5 years who's toughest moments seem to come when he injures his own teammates. But even he has a G on his helmet. Even he deserves better than what Massaquoi got on Saturday.
There's a FaceBook group of students putting together an apology to Massaquoi. It's called something like We Love Massaquoi. I lost the email with the exact details. If you have the name, publish it in the comments field.
The students talked about showing "Solidarity" with the team on the Black Out. You want to show that you're really behind the team? Stop BOOING. You're making yourself look like chumps.
