Choking on the Kool-Aid part II
This one is easy, look at the post before. If you want to be optimist you can take a look at all the close games and say that UGA is that close to being a very good team. The pessimist, however, would simply say that Georgia as a team (coaches, players, S&C staff) do not know how to close out a game. They were simply unable to win a close game. 0-7 in close games. The only remotely close game that UGA won was the Georgia Tech game and Tech was coming back in that game until they were forced into passing situations late in the game. Whether it was conditioning, coaching, mental toughness, being too young at qb, or lack of a consistent running game Georgia simply could not find a way to win a close game.
