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.
Let’s see what the National Media is saying after this week’s win over Murray State shall we?
Opponent’s Home Media: The Paducah Sun – “Everything between the hedges belonged to the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs, who on Saturday upended Murray State 63-17 in front of their first home crowd of the 2019 season - nearly a sellout - at Sanford Stadium.”
24/7 Sports: “The final score of Georgia’s week-two matchup with Murray State indicates complete and utter dominance. The Bulldogs won 63-17 and the final three quarters of the game were where they truly manhandled the Racers.”
CBS Sports: “…the Bulldogs absolutely dominated the game on the ground as they averaged a staggering 6.7 yards per carry. D’Andre Swift tallied 67 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns while Zamir White, Brian Herrien, and backup quarterback Stetson Bennett all add one touchdown apiece.”
Yahoo Sports: “No. 3 Georgia romps to 63-17 victory over FCS Murray State”
At the beginning of the season, the Bulldogs had 12 things on the To Do list, and the first two are done. When 24/7 Sports, ESPN, CBS & Yahoo all reference our game as a “complete and utter dominance”, “impressive showing”, “absolute domination”, & “romps” respectively, I think Georgia did enough this weekend.
