Friends, the Georgia Bulldogs are the SEC Tournament Champions, and there are going to be SEC Champion t-shirts and hats in the UGA Bookstore and other places tomorrow morning. Let that sink in for a minute or two and try not to laugh....... see you can't do it. I watched the game from start to finish and there are no words to describe the utter joy I feel at this moment. When the last second ticked off, I began shrieking at the top of my voice, hugged my best friend and my campus minister, and proceeded to run out of the room stripping off my lucky shirt and cap in classic European soccer style proclaiming our sudden and inexplicable superiority to all that would here me.
What our team has just accomplished is more than extraordinary, its unprecedented!!! We won four games in three days, played the championship game on our arch-rival's home court in front of 1,000 people, and did this with a nine man roster!! I know there have been a lot of people hounding Dennis Felton this year, but what he has done with this team is astounding. He squad never gave up on him, and they played their hearts out. With a great recruiting class coming in next year, I hope that this accomplishment will energize the UGA fanbase (the alumni attendance at games is shameful), kick start this program, and make us a force to be reckoned with.
Here's to Yata Gaines and Dave Bliss on a great career here in Athens, and lets cheer them on throughout the tournament. Its great to be relevant again.
GO DAWGS!!! TO HELL WITH XAVIER!!!!
