The Georgia Bulldogs suffered a disappointing 35-7 loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks last weekend, dropping them from 5th to 14th in the Associated Press rankings. More than a few fingers were pointed in the direction of junior quarterback Aaron Murray, who completed just 11 of 31 passes for a season-low 109 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in the game. To make matters worse the house he stays in on campus was vandalized with eggs and toilet paper.
It may or may not ease the Dawgs faithful but freshman running back Todd Gurley tweeted a picture of his quarterback in a t-shirt with an apparent message for fans.
Gurley and fellow freshman running back Keith Marshall have been more than effective thus far, combining for 1,040 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on 7.2 yards per carry through the first six games. And Georgia leads the SEC with 1,359 yards on the ground.
Unfortunately when you’re the Georgia Bulldogs, and the expectations are high, there’s little margin for error in the always tough SEC. The season certainly isn’t over and either team ahead of them in the conference’s East division (South Carolina & Florida) could slip up and open the door for Georgia to have the inside track to the SEC Championship Game. But that would almost certainly require the Bulldogs to win their remaining regular season games. And until that happens the fan base will probably be anything but calm.
