After a season full of ups and downs, during which at one point many fans wondered if a bowl game was even in the cards, Georgia managed to score a return trip to Memphis for the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl. They’ll face a quality program which has likewise struggled through a season not up to its recent standards, Texas Christian.
The 6-6 Horned Frogs are coming off a 30-6 thumping at the hands of Kansas State. But perhaps no team in America has been harder to figure out than Gary Patterson’s gang. They preceded that loss to the Fightin’ Bill Snyders with a 31-9 plastering of Texas and the soon-to-exit Charlie Strong. Before that they lost 31-6 to a top ten Oklahoma State and boat raced Baylor, 62-22. Midseason they followed a close 52-46 loss to eventual conference champion Oklahoma with a 24-23 squeaker against the hapless Kansas Jayhawks. In short, if you know what kind of football team the Classic City Canines will face in Memphis, you’ve got that one over on Gary Patterson.
