Ah yes, the Tennesse game. Brick by brick the creamsicle clad fans declared, “Brother Butch will bring us back to our rightful place!” LOLOL – Kirby waltzed into Knoxville, blew the Navy out of the water and signed Butch Jones’ (coaching) death warrant. Here is how Murray Poole began his game report:
No blown leads in Knoxville this time. No crucial injuries to star running backs. Only a swarming, unyielding Georgia defense and a Bulldog offensive attack that got better as the game moved along at Neyland Stadium.
Folks, for the second consecutive Saturday, Kirby Smart’s football team has placed a woodshed whipping on a Southeastern Conference opponent. This time, it was the 7th-ranked Bulldogs all over a frustrated and floundering Tennessee team to the tune of 41-0.
Have you ever witnessed a Georgia football team stage two such impressive victories back-to-back? Don’t think I have and, showing my age, I’ve been covering the Bulldogs for some 52 years now.
After the 2016 Hail Mary and Nick Chubb’s 2015 injury in Knoxville, skunking the Vols at their place was sweet indeed.
