So I've attended to real life a bit this week.
While I was reading some non-blog stuff this week, I came across a passage from "Breaking the Line" about the FAMU vs. Grambling 19647 Organge Blossom Classic game. Samuel Freedman follows both teams and coaches in that season. As a part of it he discusses Eddie Robinson's path to Grambling and something he put in there about Robinson's approach when he started at Grambling stood out. It was a bit The Lion in Winter, but it also applies to the current season we are in. Robinson discussed doing everything well, with pride, even if you are failing. That there is value in focusing on doing things as well as possible, even if they result in failure.
What struck me about that is that we, as UGA fans, are bitching too much about what could have been and not focusing on what will be. We will beat Florida again. We will beat Auburn again, and likely derail their SEC Championship aspirations. We will beat Tech again a
Am I disappointed over the way this season has unfolded? Absolutely. But there'll be time for thoughtful introspection (or wild demands, if you are so inclined) at the end of the season. The rumors Monday did nothing to help us beat Florida. If you aren't focused on that, please stay your ass in Conyers or where ever. Our team needs us to bring the pain in Jacksonville.
We expect them to. They should expect us to.
