Sunday Victory ‘Dawg Bites

NCAA Football: Georgia at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

There’s nothing quite like waking up following a Georgia Bulldog victory. Let’s all bask in the good news:

Nick Saban is angry. Kirby Smart and his players are having fun and cracking jokes. Is that reason for concern? I don’t think so. Georgia is fielding a veteran football team full of guys who know how to get mentally set to perform. If they want to let off steam for 12 hours following a win I’m good with it.

A sign that this team is on the right wavelength? Its collective dissatisfaction with how the defense played.

Once again Jake Fromm did what was asked of him, throwing a touchdown pass for the sixth game in a row. Fromm’s stats aren’t flashy, but he just continues to not screw it up. In football as in life, that’s more than half the battle.

Jacob Eason was 3 of 3 passing but will unfairly be blamed by fans for that sack/fumble that cut one of his drives short. Another life lesson? Life isn’t fair.

It wasn’t all sunshine and roses for Fromm, as he did have at least one mental error that sent Kirby Smart into orbit. Also, "risking an aneurysm Kirby" is among my top three favorite Kirbys, right up there with "Malibu Kirby" and "Undefeated in the SEC Kirby."

Elsewhere, Mark Richt picked up a close signature road win against a major rival early in his tenure that left fans virtually speechless. Deja vu, man.

And Georgia’s upcoming opponent Missouri rolled up 563 yards of offense against Kentucky....and still lost. Bill C. at Rock M Nation notes that is sadly an improvement over prior weeks.

And former Alabama coach/Texas A&M player Gene Stallings may be the toughest hombre alive. If you’ve ever read "The Junction Boys" you may not find that terribly surprising.

That’s all for now. Have a great Sunday, and....

Go ‘Dawgs!
