UGA fans are tough to please
If you’re complaining after:
– Carson Beck threw for 300+ and 3 TDs with a 68 % comp rate
– Brock Bowers finished with 9 receptions and 120 yards and 2 TDs
– The starting offense scored 42 points
I don’t know what else to tell you other than you’ll never be satisfied.

Georgia finally is getting into the SEC schedule now
This is such a weird year. After tonight, the regular season is a third of the way over, but it seems like we’re still waiting for it to start. I’m definitely ready to see something different than what this first month has been.
