Found September 03, 2013 on Crystal Ball Run:
A look at five of the biggest stories that CBR is following this week. 1. Georgia looks to make its start a little less rough. The Bulldogs lost a thriller on the road in the opening week to a really good Clemson squad. Alas, college football’s unforgiving pollsters reserve glory – along with lofty rankings in the polls – for winners. Georgia tumbled seven spots in the latest USA Today Poll, down from fifth in the preseason to No. 12. The beat goes on for Mark Richt and his team this week as they return home to Athens for a date with SEC East foe South Carolina. The Bulldogs will be battling the Fighting Clowneys without the services of Malcolm Mitchell, their best receiver who was lost for the season while celebrating a touchdown versus the Tigers. Starting the season 0-2 with a loss to one of the contenders for your division sounds like the kind of start that could demoralize a highly regarded team. Beat the Gamecocks, though, and 2. Wolverines, Irish battle to win the ...

Mark Richt: For and Against Georgia’s Coach

There's no denying that Georgia coach Mark Richt is one of life's good guys. He's a coach who is also just a really good guy. But Georgia fans don't want decent guys. If they did, they'd hire a pastor. They want him to get over the hump, and not only win football games, but win BIG football games. And by BIG FOOTBALL GAMES, we mean National Championships - and...

Georgia fan cries on sports radio, thinks Georgia should get rid of Mark Richt

One of the most entertaining things about the college football season is listening to angry fans call into sports talk radio shows the week after their team has suffered a loss. But rarely does that anger turn into sadness in front of the radio audience. That rarity happened on CBS Atlanta’s 92.9 The Game this weekend when a Georgia fan was so passionate about Georgia getting rid...

Crying UGA fan wants Richt fired

Saturday night was tough for Georgia fans. They suffered a painful 38-35 road loss at Clemson and wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell tore his ACL while celebrating a Todd Gurley touchdown run. This latest indignity in a "big" game, coming on the heels of the SEC title game loss, finally broke at least one of the Bulldog faithful. No matter how rough your team's opening...

Georgia fan loves his Dawgs, cries about them on radio

We're only one week into the 2013 college football season and we already have our first hysterical fan. Tyler from Atlanta called into a Georgia radio show after his beloved Bulldogs had just blown a game against Clemson 38-35.

College Football Week 1 Retrospection: Where Mark Richt inched closer to the hot seat

Week 1 of the college football season came and we all rejoiced. Now it’s gone and it’s time for retrospection. Big plays were made, good games were played and Mark Richt looks to be on his way to the hot seat. Let’s look back. Despite a lackluster offensive performance, Alabama still found a way to dominate Alabama’s 35-10 win over Virginia Tech wasn’t pretty, but boy...

Video: Georgia fan cries on radio after loss to Clemson

The Georgia Bulldogs suffered a heart-breaking defeat to the hands of the Clemson Tigers Saturday night and the loss led at least one fan to break down in tears on the radio after the game.

Georgia football fan calls radio show, breaks down crying

This is pretty hilarious.  After the fifth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs lost a classic game 38-35 in their season opener against the eighth-ranked Tigers of Clemson, one die hard UGA fan called a local radio station to vent.  He definitely did the venting part, but he took it even further when he started crying on the air about how Georgia needs to fire current head coach Mark Richt...

Georgia Fan Cries on Radio Show After Bulldogs’ Loss to Clemson (Audio)

They take their college football seriously in the SEC. Too seriously, some might say. This example of over-the-top fanaticism comes from this past Saturday night, shortly after No. 5 Georgia dropped its season opener 38-35 on the road at Clemson. The loss was far from a stunning upset — Clemson came into the game ranked eighth in the nation — and does not doom the Bulldogs...

South Carolina-Georgia Preview

Georgia's only conference losses the past two seasons have come against South Carolina, with those defeats seemingly inspiring back-to-back runs to the SEC championship game.
