So much for questions about Joe Cox’s arm.
A record-tying five touchdowns and throwing for 375 yards.
But one question: When when did Georgia move to the Big 12 conference?
There were still too many turnovers. Way too many penalties. A frustratingly ineffective kickoff game. And the defense gave up nearly 500 yards of offense and five touchdown passes by Ryan Mallett.
But the Dogs again showed a remarkable resiliency, too. One thing you can say about this Georgia team is they don’t get rattled when they get down.
And Georgia comes out of Fayetteville with a big road win.
The difference in the game?
The redhead with the bad shoulder and supposedly weak arm. With several helping hands from A.J. Green, Michael Moore, Tavares King and Orson Charles.
All Mark Richt asked of Cox this game was to get better. Mission accomplished. And then some.
Time to celebrate!
More to come.
