Following the speech from the football coach, the basketball Dawgs proceeded to whip the Florida Gators in Athens. It was a singular bright spot in a truly dismal season.
In relative terms, the football team is where the basketball team was then. In need of a spark, an emotional lift. A players only meeting was called (and quickly reported to the press.) Will that prove to be the spark?
Given our history of playing down to Vanderbilt and our apparent lack of killer instinct when playing lesser talented teams, we could use any emotional advantage we can get. Simply having more talent has not gotten the job done.
Perhaps Coach Richt should give the football team the same pep talk he gave the basketballers. He may even want to give Coach Mark Fox a shot.
