Found October 08, 2012 on Fox Sports South:
ATLANTA -- Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson said on his Twitter account he returned from the Bulldogs' lopsided loss at South Carolina on Saturday night to find a house he shares with quarterback Aaron Murray "egged and rolled." Georgia was No. 5 before the 35-7 loss to South Carolina. The Bulldogs fell to No. 14 in The Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday. Robinson, a senior, concluded the toilet paper and eggs on the house were a result of the loss. He posted on his Twitter account "Came to a house that was egged and rolled. Seems that people turn on you when you're not perfect. Thought we were in this together." Coach Mark Richt said Sunday negative feedback from fans is not a surprise. Richt said players in the public spotlight can't respond to negative displays from fans. "I think you just hold your head high," Richt said. "You act in a first-class manner. You don't do anything that would retaliate or anything like that. Just be man enough to turn the other cheek and go about your business. That's what I would say." Georgia (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) has a week off before playing at Kentucky on Oct. 20. Murray completed 11 of 31 for 109 yards, the lowest total of his career, with an interception in Georgia's third straight loss in the series. "It stinks," Murray said. "We felt like we had a great rhythm offensively going on in the first five games. We've got to go back, watch the film and make corrections and get better. It's still a long season to go and there are still six games left. Plenty of chances to get better, more games to win. We just have to watch the film and get better." Richt said he hadn't heard of the players' home being hit with eggs and littered with toilet paper until he was asked about the incident on his weekly teleconference Sunday afternoon. "Sometimes that comes with the territory," he said. "You're a public figure and people get upset about things. It's sad something like that would happen but it's not shocking people get criticism or something like that happened to them when they're in the type position those guys are in, especially the quarterback position." Richt said every quarterback he has coached since he was an assistant coach at Florida State has had to have unlisted telephone numbers "because you know there's going to be somebody to call and say something foolish after the emotion of a game. Unfortunately, it's part of it." A win would have left Georgia in a strong position in the SEC's Eastern Division. Now Georgia needs help to earn a second straight trip to the SEC championship game in Atlanta. Six hours after tweeting about the ugly scene at his home, Robinson followed with another post that seemed to follow Richt's advice. "Still get to be a hero this morning to little kids at Athens Church," Robinson tweeted. "There are more important things in life than wins and losses." Georgia was averaging 48 points before being shut down by the Gamecocks. "The main thing is to get back to work, continue to believe in each other and come back with a strong performance," Richt said. "That's really the best medicine we have right now."
