The more I ponder the upcoming installment of the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry, the more I worry. As if the season hasn't gone bad enough, we have to finish against the nation's #5 and #1 ranked teams. 0-8 in the SEC is a definite possibility.
Like many, I blame the coaches. However unlike most people, I don't lay the blame entirely at the feet of CGC. Instead, I look at the fact that we have hired two former UGA coaches to run our defense. The Uncle Rico look-a-like that is Brian Van Gorder used to stalk the sidelines for the Bulldogs prior to running a good Georgia Southern program into the ground in only one horrible year in Statesboro. It is safe to say that he has been atrocious to this point. Never thought I'd want Ted Roof back.
Meanwhile, our coach in the secondary, Willie Martinez was basically ran out of Athens despite being Mark Richt's best friend.
How can we succeed if we are only going to take the sloppy seconds of a program that still crows about a national championship won over 30 years ago. These guys are too clean cut to win on the Plains.
