For the third straight game, Georgia has played one of the top five teams in the conference and for the third game in a row, the Dawgs play an opponent who by all rights should blow them off the court tough. For the third straight game, the Dawgs lose, this time to Mississippi State on the road 72-69.
Georgia twice led by double digits, including a 13 point lead late in the game. Inexperience gave it away. Hey, I am not going to say it is panic time. The Bizzaro Dawgs are a very good basketball team. However, if Georgia is to get to a post season berth, they have to win at least one of these "should have not business winning" games like Old Miss, UK or Mississippi State.
Regretfully, it doesn't get easier....yet. We have a week off before we get a very hot Tennessee team. That is the bad news. The good news is the Dawgs don't face nearly as tough a schedule after that.
