The Bulldog Faithful has a long, storied history of “Munsoning.” For those weaned to the sounds of the unequaled Larry Munson, the notion of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory must be ever-present or we just don’t feel right. The question on everyone’s mind week in and week out this season will be, did Georgia help or hurt their chances of making it to the playoffs? That question isn’t likely to be answered inside the Dawgosphere, so I thought I’d wander about the interwebs and see what the larger College Football Media has to say. After all, the National Sports Media likely has more influence over the Committee than the Dawgosphere does.
Opponent’s Home Media: KAIT Channel 8 - Bulldogs blanks Arkansas State 55-0
“The Arkansas State football team (1-2) fell into a 34-0 halftime deficit before eventually dropping a 55-0 contest to No. 3 Georgia (3-0) Saturday afternoon at Sanford Stadium.”
24/7 Sports: Game Balls: Georgia pounds Arkansas State 55-0
“Saturday’s game against Arkansas State couldn’t have gone much better for No. 3 Georgia. The Bulldogs won 55-0 and for the second straight week got a lot of young players some valuable experience.”
ESPN: The WWL has the Bulldogs listed at #3 in their Playoff picks after week three with this comment:
“No. 3 Georgia had no trouble with Arkansas State, rolling to a 55-0 win. QB Jake Fromm threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns.”
“There’s not much to say about Georgia’s home game against Arkansas State on the field. The Bulldogs took care of business early with a 55-0 win. The more prevalent story is how Georgia fans showed up en masse wearing pink to support Red Wolves coach Blake Anderson and his late wife, Wendy. Anderson’s wife of 27 years tragically passed away from breast cancer in August. The “Wear Pink for Wendy” campaign is another reminder about what’s great in humanity.”
When 24/7 Sports, ESPN & CBS all reference our game as a “pounding”, no trouble”, and “took care of business” respectively, I think Georgia did enough this weekend.
When the biggest story for several days in College Football was born in the comments section of Dawg Sports – I think y’all did enough this week to earn the title Damn Good Dawgs.
