In the interests of equal time, I am going to try to be upbeat about University of Georgia athletics. This will be difficult to do, since the Bulldogs are performing poorly in nearly every sport, but I’m going to make an effort. Consequently, I am turning my attention to softball. Yes, softball.
Were you aware that the Georgia softball team is 40-8, ranked tenth in the country, and has a fifteen-game winning streak dating back to April 3?
Were you aware that Alisa Goler earned Rinnai Who’s Hot Student-Athlete of the Week honors by going two for four with two home runs, five RBI, and six walks in last weekend’s sweep of the South Carolina Gamecocks?
Were you aware that Lu Harris-Champer recorded her 700th career head coaching victory last weekend?
Were you aware that, with five games remaining before the SEC softball tournament beginning in Fayetteville, Ark., on May 13, the Bulldogs stand at 17-6 in conference play?
Well, if you weren’t aware before, now you are. This leaves us with a decision to make. Should I continue to ride out the rest of the Diamond Dogs’ season or turn my attention (as I have done before) to a softball squad bound for postseason play? I’m not guaranteeing that I will abide by the will of the majority---I did that before, and it turned out poorly---but I will take into account your votes in the poll below.
