“Everything we want to accomplish is in front of us,” Blazevich says. “We obviously have a lot of work to do, and that starts today. But, one loss doesn’t define our season, and everything ‘s still out there for us, and so we’re still trying to write our legacy and determine, ‘What can I do this Monday that will help achieve that?'”
This season is special for Georgia, and these seniors are ready to go out on a high note. Blazevich’s ready to leave his legacy along with the other seniors, so Saturday will be a very special day.
