It seems like a long time since the last home game, doesn't it? The UGA Bulldogs returned to Sanford Stadium in Athens this week for the first time in a month. It may have been Homecoming, but there wasn't much of a game as Georgia treated their visitors to a 13-63 rout.
Nine different Georgia players scored a touchdown in the game. And we needed all of them because the top four running backs and top wide receiver on the depth chart were out due to suspension (Isaiah Crowell, Ken Malcome, and Carlton Thomas) or injury (Richard Samuel, Malcolm Mitchell). It was certainly an impressive performance, never mind that New Mexico State had a 3-5 record coming into the game with one of the worst scoring defenses in the country. Sorry, Aggies, but you picked the wrong season to come to Athens; we're still celebrating the Florida win from last week.
The crowd was light, and as is usual for Homecoming games, young and sober. Those in attendance were treated to some strange occurrences. Tight end Aron White got stuck in the hedges after a touchdown catch and had to be helped out by the other 10 Bulldogs on the field. One of the New Mexico State players got a second chance and caught a pass he had dropped after it bounced off of 2 UGA defenders. The UGA Redcoat Band played a low-key halftime show that I swear that the PA announcer called a tribute to "tragic ballet," only to return to their seats in the third quarter and play "The Time Warp" and "Your Love is My Drug." Mom and I enjoyed a weird but entertaining afternoon.
