I just have to say that the things I see on the sideline at the conclusion of big victories (rare as they are) really move me. As my handle says, I'm a '92 grad of UGA. BMUS in music education, matriculated in graduate school in '92 as well towards an MM but secured a TA position over in Memphis which allowed me to study free of obtaining student loans. (Not really relevant other than to provide some background info)
The thing that I want to point out to all you good folks is this; the interaction seen with CMR and his team following the victory is priceless. I would argue that it is unique to our program, sincere respect is easily spotted. The kind of true and sincere mutual respect that overwhelms men at times of elation or sorrow. Doesn't really have anything to do with football but really does have to do with leadership, education, and personal growth.
Sorry for being all "touchy feely". I'm just moved by the emotions I viewed after that game, equally moved by knowing the overwhelming majority of other athletic programs do not reach as high in their human development. As frustrating as it is knowing we are not cut throat national championship material in the grand scheme of things, we are supporting things not so tangible, not so short sighted. Things that really matter 10 years down the road when these young men are building their lives and influencing others.
