Whose house?

I’ve been seeing some pretty interesting quotes from the guys after the game regarding the pregame festivities:

“I saw them running up and jumping on the ‘G.’ I knew that was a mistake,” Robinson said. “You just don’t do that. (MSU quarterback Chris) Relf was up in my face. I said, ‘OK, you can win now, but we’ll win the game.’ They picked before the game to try to set the tone. We set it on the field.”

We certainly did. Perceived as taunts, the actions of State’s players prior to kickoff really seemed to fire up our guys:

“That’s disrespect,” junior safety Bacarri Rambo said. “You don’t do that. We were glad the defense got to get on the field first because we were ready to destroy them after that.”

Sanders Commings, coming off a big game with an interception and a fumble recovery, cited further motivation from something he claims Dan Mullen said:

“He called us the Georgia Peach,” Commings said. “He said it looks good on the outside but it’s soft on the inside.”

Like Marc Weiszer, I couldn’t find anything on these here innerwebs either about Mullen saying any such thing. But, hey, it seems to have helped. By the way, Sanders, you should have heard what Derek Dooley said about your-… You know what? I’m not even going to go there.

Oh, here’s one more quote, this one from the Monster, Cornelius Washington. I think the nudge and wink are implied:

Washington again: “Anytime your manhood is tested, you’re going to rise to the occasion.”

Wait for it

How ’bout them Dawgs!

All he said was “we made mistakes, shot ourselves in the foot, etc.” He never said that UGA outplayed them or deserved to win.

  2. […] do with the Dawgs? Well, nothing really. But it occurred to me that I’m well aware of how a well-motivated team who thinks it’s been slighted by an opponent can react to an upcoming […]
