A Truly Disturbing Datum From Wednesday's Basketball Game

New, 4 comments

MaconDawg and I have shied away from writing too much about Georgia basketball, and, gosh, can you blame us?

This, though, is a truly unnerving detail from Wednesday night's hoops loss to the hated Gators:

  • Florida outscored Georgia by a 42-30 margin in the first half. In the 11-2 football season of 2007, the Bulldogs beat the Gators by a final margin of 42-30.
  • Florida outscored Georgia by a 41-27 margin in the second half. In the 10-2 football season of 1976, the Bulldogs beat the Gators by a final margin of 41-27.

Really, our Gator overlords are just mocking us now. I expect the next roundball battle between the two S.E.C. East squads to end with a final score of 126-0 . . . 75-0 in the first half, in retribution for what happened in Jacksonville in 1942, and 51-0 in the second half, as revenge for the 1968 Cocktail Party.

Go 'Dawgs!
