IF UGA WANTS REASONS TO BE UNHAPPY, STEVE SPURRIER IS HAPPY TO HELP

It's horrible that Aaron Murray's house was egged after a crushing loss to South Carolina, but add in a cancer diagnosis for Papa Murray and it's all looking so much worse in the cold daylight of a Monday morning. The good news for the Murray family: it's a very treatable form of cancer with a high rate of recovery, and football is just football. They play other games, you get other chances, and that's why they call it a game and not real life. Thoughts, prayers, and all other positive signals in their direction.

The bad news for Georgia fans on a very insignificant football-type level is that the diehards don't seem to be very happy with that football-type business happening on the field. Doug even mentions the word "Donnan," and to bring up that moment in Georgia history is to acknowledge that things have come to some sort of awkward crux. (And as always, Steve Spurrier is way too happy to help Georgia fans lose their grip on the cliff wall at this extremely sensitive point.)
