The diehard Georgia football fans will fill Sanford Stadium every Saturday to root on the Dawgs and will go to extraordinary lengths to display their passion. That fiery passion turned on quarterback Aaron Murray and linebacker Christian Robinson on Saturday, when they returned to Athens to find their house egged and rolled with toilet paper.
Came to a house that was egged and rolled. Seems that people turn on you when you're not perfect. Thought we were in this together.— Christian Robinson™ (@crob45) October 7, 2012
The Bulldogs were one late-game touchdown away from being shut out for the first time since 1995 in the 35-7 loss at South Carolina -- their third straight loss to the Gamecocks. Murray completed only 11 of 31 passes for 109 yards -- the lowest passing total of his Georgia career, no touchdowns and an interception.
When Mark Richt was informed of the vandalism during his Sunday teleconference, the Bulldogs' coach was disappointed -- but not surprised -- at the foolish actions following an emotional SEC Eastern Division loss.
"Sometimes that comes with the territory," Richt said. "You’re a public figure, and people get upset about things. It’s sad something like that would happen, but it’s not shocking people get criticism or something like that happened to them when they’re in the type position those guys are in, especially the quarterback position."
Georgia now must win the rest of its conference games and hope for the Gamecocks to suffer two losses in order for the Bulldogs to pass them in the standings and earn a return bid to the SEC Championship Game. That challenge is getting more daunting by the week, with Florida beating LSU and moving up to No. 4 in the nation.
The Bulldogs had a schedule advantage on the Gators and Gamecocks heading into the season, but now the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party is a must win for the Bulldogs to realistically keep SEC title hopes alive.
