Heartbreaking loss to Auburn ruins one of Georgia’s greatest comebacks ever

That was, without a doubt, the wildest, craziest fourth quarter of Georgia football I’ve seen since run-Lindsay-run in 1980.

And absolutely heartbreaking for anyone who calls themselves a Dawg.

A Georgia team that was trailing Auburn by 20 points with 12:39 left on the clock clawed its way back into the game thanks to the incredible play of its senior quarterback and took a 38-37 lead with 1:49 left. It was as if Aaron Murray was willing his team not to lose this one despite plenty of reasons that it should have.

And then, with a mere 36 ticks left, the Tigers faced fourth-and-18 and former Bulldog player Nick Marshall launched a Hail Mary pass that was off-target and yet in miracle fashion was tipped by a Georgia defender and landed in the hands of Auburn receiver Ricardo Louis, who took it in for a score.

That play was one of the most deflating moments in my more than five decades of watching Georgia football.

Even then, it wasn’t quite over, though. An Auburn 2-point conversion attempt failed. Getting the ball back with just 25 seconds left, the amazing Murray — who was 33 of 49 for 415 yards in the air, threw two touchdown passes and scored two more running — brought his team racing downfield and wound up on the Auburn 20 with enough time left for two throws.

As Mark Richt said after the game, “we were very close to having a double miracle — one for us, one for them.”

But, as Richt noted, “It just didn’t quite happen.”

Richard Louis gets the winning score for Auburn on a freak play. (Jason Getz / AJC)

Some folks might be inclined to blame Tray Matthews and Josh Harvey-Clemons for not batting that pass down like they’ve been taught to, which would have ended the game with a Georgia win, instead of going for an unnecessary pick.

But, actually, Georgia even being in a position to win at that point was in defiance of the sloppy, discombobulated game the Dogs played in the first half (particularly a horrible first quarter).

Yes, Auburn’s uptempo offense was all it was advertised to be, and more, as Marshall and the Tigers burned Georgia on quite a number of passing plays in addition to looking unstoppable at times with the run.

But Auburn got a number of big helping hands in the first half from Georgia’s offensive line, which had awful pass protection when it wasn’t getting called for false starts, and from the Dogs’ continued lousy special teams play and coaching. (It was also a terribly officiated game — by the Penn Wagers crew, natch — but that burned both teams.)

So, overall, the Dogs put themselves in quite a hole, and yet still nearly won the game thanks not just to the offense battling back but also to Georgia’s defense getting some big second-half stops due to more aggressive playcalling by Todd Grantham.

Had the Dogs played the first three quarters like they played the last one, we’d be talking about what a bust the No. 7-ranked Tigers turned out to be.

In the end, as Eric Zeier put it afterward, it was a game Georgia had no business being in and yet had no business losing.

To do so on a freak play hurts, yes. But the fact that Georgia was in a position to win the game at that point says a lot about the never-say-die attitude of this team and its scrappy quarterback.

That’s my take on the game. Feel free to share your own, but keep it civil.

Roswell Dawg: Poor Recruiting. Are you kidding?? Go to Rivals100 and look back the last 8 years – UGA is always in the Top10. Nick Marshall (AU) and Zach Mettenberger (LSU) – two exceptional SEC QB’s former Dawgs. Here is SC – UGA stole AJ Green a few years back. I give my left n** if Spurrier could recruit half as good a UGA. Oh yeah, UGA lost 7 D starters to the 2012 NFL draft more than any other FBS team. Count your blessings.

Daniel#12,
Exactly. I was expecting them to make the 1st down, we do it every time. Was not expecting them to throw deep like that. Not even shocked something like that tipped ball happened. Our guys are fighting to see who gets the meaningless interception instead of knocking it down. More bad coaching from Grantham.

I don’t quite agree with Bill’s assessment. Auburn handed the fourth quarter to the dogs with stupid momentum killing penalties. I agree that Murray played a great game, and I didn’t see Gurley punch anyone in the face. I think that Murray’s knee was down on the TD, and the gods of football retaliated for the bad call and gave the game back to Auburn.

Love this team! Hard to swallow the loss but what an effort. I’d get a new defensive coordinator and a new offensive line coach. Spend some of that money. Grantham wants to coach in the pros and sold us down the river last recruiting class and Will Friend was brought in when Richt was on the hot seat. We need someone that can bring in some real stars on the offensive line – Friend is not getting it done there.

If these comments are really from our fans – i’d get some new fans, too.

There was even a timeout before that last play. Grantham should have been telling his guys to just knock any pass down. No penalties, just knock any pass down. Had all the time in the world to reinforce that to the defense.

Get over the official’s costing us the games. The referees are paid by the SEC and the SEC wants the best possible matchups and Auburn and Alabama would be it for this week. If our inept coaches would ever get the team to play 4 quarters we would beat anybody. But that want never happen with conservative Richt. Same crap game after game and season after season. Sick of Richt!!!

Winning this one would have been awesome- whatever ones take, we all shared the amazement of the Q4 come back and the instantaneous “thrill of victory, agony of defeat” emotions of the Auburn miracle TD play. And then to make it down once again to the last play and fall short.

There’s not much of a chance for us to get a top coordinator to come to Georgia they know Richt is too conservative and wouldn’t be able to call an aggressive game plan. That’s why we had to get our 4th choice of defense coordinators when Richt hired Grantham!!!

Note to bloggers: I have been searching all night and morning for a quote of from any UGA DB saying “Coach Grantham or Coach Lakatos NEVER told us to just knock the ball down on that last play.”

“It wasn’t a fluky play. They launched it out there and were hoping for a miracle,” Richt said. “When you’re playing that type of prevent defense and the goal is not to let anyone get behind you, the goal is to knock the ball down and win the game, and it just didn’t happen that way.”

“We had two guys in position; we’ve just gotta finish on the ball,” Grantham said. “It’s fourth-and-18. We want to knock the ball down and get off the field.”

And I am officially on the Grassy Knoll with some of these Refs.. Do you ever see Muschamp get flagged for his pyschotic rants? Saban? And no review on the fumble we recovered? No late hit calls against Murray? Recall 2010? And the cheap shot right in front of the ref on Murray in the SEC Championship game? Somebody tell me where I’m going wrong.

The story of 2013:
TURNOVER MARGIN.

As of today, Georgia ranks 110th in turnover margin which means:
1) Murray throws way too many interceptions (LAST IN NCAA IN 2013 & 2011, #90 in 2012)
2) Defense, for the 1st time since Grantham’s been here, hasn’t bailed Murray out due to the young defense. Defense forced more turnovers than Bama in 2010, 2011 and 2012, so don’t buy Seth’s garbage, blaming everything on the defense. Not true, and way off.

Murray turnover issues for 3 years in big games have put Georgia sop behind the 8 ball it’s been hard to dig out.

Murray has now thrown an interception against an SEC in every single loss in
2011
2012
2013

Got to fix that next year. I don’t think it’s coaching, so Hutson Mason SHIOULD be a lot better there, which means you win these type of games.

UGA since 2010, has lost 97% of its’ games when losing the turnover battle.

Seth

Just can’t beat ranked teams, losing the turnover battle. Murray has to know that. Murray also had a fumble in this game.

Georgia loses 97% of the time against SEC teams when we lose the turnover battle. And Murray has been the worst in the nation for three years running.

I am sick of it.

Just knock the ball down. What coach would not have told his defense that on that last play of the game? Oh I forgot, the UGA coaches. That’s why we lost the game. As long as the Georgia fans accept mediocrity, that’s what we are going to get. CMR and his staff need to go.

Folks, this was not a loss you can remotely pin on Murray. No other QB in the SEC could have brought this team back from such a deficit in 4th quarter. Marshall does not even have the possibility of being the QB Murray is. are you freakin kidding me ! Marshall is one of those hybrid players that look decent only in a spread offense that only works in college. Strong arm , not that accurate.. Better at scrambling and running on designed plays. CMR did right thing letting him go. I don’t want a thief on my team either. Face it people, if JHC just simply knocks ball down to ground like he was supposed to, Murray would be looked at a lot different this morning.

Well it was a good season in the beginning until the players started to get hurt and it seems things went in the wrong direction quickly.

I too don’t understand how so many third and fourth downs can be made into first downs against this team so late in the season? And too see a fourth down conversion made into a touchdown ? This is to late in the season for that to happen consistently on Georgia’ defense!

I am not against Coach Richt or his staff but surely some soul searching must go on and changes have to be made. If Coach Malzahn can take Auburn to the level it’s at in one year after a year like last year, it makes me wonder?

I just don’t know how much longer this is acceptable at Georgia? I think our players are as good as any players in the country, but the type of offense and defense Georgia plays gets players ready for the NFL, but does little to bring Championships to Georgia.

As a Georgia and Atlanta fan, this year is like going back to the 60′ and 70’s, it’s unreal! Both teams were within yards of playing in the big games last year and the results for this year has been terrible.

I understand Georgia and Florida have had major injuries but so does other teams and that can’t not be an acceptable excuse at Georgia and for that at Florida.

It pains me to see such a hater of Georgia football as Steve Spurrier have the opportunity to possibly play for the SEC crown this year!

I didn’t think it was all that heartbreaking. With run Lindsey run there was something on the line. Sure, it would have been nice to win the game, but really once you have lost to Vandy (still their only SEC win right? What does Vandy have 4 SEC wins in the last five years?) and have 3 losses already… the games aren’t quite as meaningful.

Yes it was a difficult way to lose after starting to show a pulse with just over 12 minutes left in the game, but the 2002 loss to Florida, last year’s Bama game and last year’s South Carolina debacle were much more heart breaking in my opinion. I thought the Colorado game at Boulder was more heartbreaking when we fumbled away the game winning field goal opportunity. I sat there in the stands thinking how can we have lost this game to a program where 6 wins is a big improvement and bowl eligibility is the goal? With AJ GREEN playing for us!!

Auburn deserved to win the game. Georgia looked silly in the first half. Not prepared, outpunted, outkickoffed, out offensive lined, out defensive lined, out running backed, out quarterbacked, and out wide receivered… certainly outcoached .

It was a fun comeback and an entertaining 4th quarter, but look how poised and hard nosed Auburn was under a first year coach and all new staff. It didn’t take Auburn 3-4 years to get competitive again with a regime change. It happened quick.

was a penalty on just about every offensive drive in the first three quarters. How can an offensive team have 12 men in the huddle on the opening play of the drive when they were sitting on the side lines for 6 minutes of game time while Auburn converted first down after first down and we had all that time to communicate to the offensive unit what the first play and first formation (including which 11 guys were going to be in on the first play).

Hopefully, a lesson learned in this game by our young DBs. No chance for the receiver to catch the ball on 4th down with the game on the line; just let it go or knock it down. Maybe during the off season with a year of experience they will learn to THINK and BE AWARE . Saban would never tolerate the mental mistakes our players make; that’s why he couches championship teams year after year. The young DBs are still confused over coverages at times. Next year they will be experienced, so no excuses except for poor coaching. Memo to coaches; FUNDAMENTALS, FUNDAMENTALS AND FUNDAMENTALS. Also, get a kicker who can put a kickoff into or out of the end zone like other teams do. Why in the world would a big time college football program recruit a kicker who can’t get the ball to the end zone? We get a lot of good players back next year and they will be health. Maybe next year.

Florida was 11-2 last year and Muschamp was SEC coach of the year. This year florida fans are calling for his head, as well as the head of the OC. He will have more year. If not big improvement next year, he is gone. Other schools don’t wait year after year after year like we do to realize they need coaching changes. Auburn didn’t wait very long after their NC season to get rid of their coach when their program went south and they are once again a strong SEC team. But, Georgia is just peachy king of a mediocre program with great athletes year after year.

The play was just bad defense. Only one guy should have been going for the ball. The other guy should have put himself in position to make a tackle to prevent the catastrophe that ended up happening. It was a horribly underthrown ball the receiver had little chance of catching so both guys didn’t need to go after the ball. Yes it was a lucky play because the ball was under thrown and the receiver just ended up in the right place at the right time, but it could have easily been avoided with good defense. When you aren’t playing your best things like that happen. That’s Mark Richt football.

By the way, claiming that it was the result of “great concentration” on the receiver’s part as I’ve heard is completely laughable. The dude had a 4 leaf clover up his arse on that play.

Agree with all the above who are tired of Aaron Murray’s untimely interceptions.

Anyone want to get sick? Look at Murray’s stats through the 1st three quarters. Why does Murray wait until he is 3 td’s behind to start playing hard?

Come on man, time for the Hutson Mason era to begin. Nothing left for Richt to keep playing Murray for, so looking at 2 wins to finish out the season, maybe a Bowl game win too for a nice change (Murray is also 1-2 in Bowl games).

Hutson Mason era starts vs Kentucky!!! Cant’ wait!!!!

Congrats to Auburn by the way, what a well prepared and well coached team. They played very physical the whole game.

Georgia has much better players and that is really the only reason that the comeback was even possible. Auburn wasn’t able to stop Georgia’s passing game. That is their one weakness on defense, but I’m sure for next season they will get some additional personnel to address that and coach that weakness up a little as that is what good coaching staff’s are able to do. Next season Georgia will lead the league in penalties again for the 4th or 5th straight year, our special teams will be an adventure, our offensive line will be spotty, and our defense will be near the bottom of the league in yards, scoring, and 3rd down prevention.

Auburn got really unlucky when they ran into each other on that critical 3rd and 4 play in the 4th quarter where their receiver hadn’t cleared the area yet from the pre-snap action. What are the chances that the Georgia defense stops Auburn if they don’t run into each other and fall down on that play? 10%? 20%? Not much more given the number of 3rd downs Auburn converted. That was the only time on offense that they didn’t look crisp and it came at a terrible time for them.

I turned to the Dawg fans around me on that 4th and 18 when I saw we were rushing only 3 guys. I said, “Auburn will pick up this 1st down easily… he will have all day to throw. I didn’t think Auburn would chuck it deep and obviously nobody thought that three Georgia defenders wouldn’t know to knock the ball toward the ground with all your might in that situation. It is 4th down, the offensive takes over and takes a knee in victory formation if the ball hits the turf. You strike the ball towards the earth with everything you have in that situation. I would be disappointed in my local high school team if they had let that happen and we are TERRIBLE, but everybody on defense knows to do that even if they have no speed and talent.

Georgia had zero energy in the first half. None! How can the coaching staff not be able to get the team up for a game on the road against the #7 team in the country in front of 85,000 fans and on national tv? Especially when we are coming off a cupcake game and we are pretty healthy for the first time in a month.

I don’t want to hear about injuries. The defense was just about at full strength. We had Gurley at 90%, Conley back, Bennett, and Lynch. Not to mention a shot in the arm with Rumph now available and Wooten playing so well.

If Georgia plays a mediocre to average game for the first three quarters, we are up 10-14 points to start the 4th.

Lets take out the cupcakes and see where we are. Georgia lost the opener to Clemson, beat LSU and South Carolina, beat TN, and then lost to Missouri and Vanderbilt back to back. Beat Florida, and lost to Auburn.

Is Georgia the most talented team with the best roster out of those teams? I think an argument can be made for that and we have the second most talented roster at worst out of all those teams. Are there any teams other than maybe Clemson that wouldn’t have switched rosters with UGA pre-season? Florida certainly would want to keep their defense, but 4-4 against this group isn’t all that impressive.

I’m surprised that my fellow dawg fans find this loss as painful as the seem to. What if we won the game? It would have been great, but we are still a three loss team including a loss to 1 win Vandy. We wouldn’t be going to the SECCG or even a very good bowl game.

Sure, it was a stunning play, but wasn’t Georgia’s lethargy in the first half more stunning than the 4th and 18 touchdown? Didn’t Auburn deserve to win this game. I’m a homer for Georgia, but I thought they completely outplayed Georgia for 48 minutes.

Last year’s Alabama game was infinitely more heartbreaking than this game. Had we had time for one more play there is a 50/50 shot we finally win a national title? This was NOTHING compared to that. This year’s Clemson game was the more heartbreaking loss.

The result of the game yesterday should not be blamed on the UGA coaches or players. If the game had ended 60 seconds earlier all of the comments would be talking about one of the greatest turn of events in UGA football history. Well things happen.

Coaches do not play a down on the field and any college athlete believes they can make the play or the coaches would not have recruited them. You can listen to the coaches during practice and go through drills everyday, but until you have been put in that situation any player at that level believes he can make that play.

I will be the first to say that you could run the “4th down and 18″ play 1000 times and the result would not be the same. Well things Happen.

The UGA defensive backs involved in the play are sick about the outcome and in hindsight would do things differently, but every defensive back playing college ball believes they can make that catch.

These players are 19 – 23 years old and have their entire adult life ahead of them and should not be judged on a GAME.

The UGA team played a hell of a game and that is how I will remember the 2013 UGA / AU game with AU getting a break at the end.

As a former AU athlete, I can tell you there are many things I would have done differently in competition, but I learned from my errors and became a better person for it. For the UGA players, today is a new day and the past is the past. There will be many bumps in the road known as life, just hold your heads up high and look forward to the future.

Good Luck.

I commented earlier on another blog that not knocking the ball to the ground or letting an offensive player be in position to catch the ball is not the reason TG should have been relieved of his duties as soon as they got back to Athens, it was we rushed two, yes two not three. I think our NG was spying the QB. Even that did not work. When he stepped up in the pocket to throw the ball he was not pressured or hit. On another reason CMR should have fired TG, when CMR drew a penalty for standing up for our players, he went onto the field and tried to fire up the defense. Two or three players they scored. I see TG has really got your back coach!

If Georgia won last night it would have sent the wrong message to this staff and players. That being, you can go into the opposition’s house against a good SEC opponent and roll your helmet out onto the field for the first three quarters and give a half hearted effort (was it more like 3/16th effort?) and because we are SO TALENTED, we can still win the game.

Don’t worry about being prepared, playing with discipline (the critical penalties) the poor tackling, not using the toss sweep until the 4th quarter.

If we had won this game, it tells the coaches and players that you don’t have to do things the right way because we have good enough talent to win games like this without playing good solid football.

Maybe this loss can inspire the Georgia program to strive for greatness. When our D is having a miserable day… you don’t commit a jumping penalty on special teams to give them an automatic first down and more points. You can’t have 12 guys in the huddle over over again. You can’t commit false start penalties over and over again on the road.

You can’t rush three guys in 4th and 18 situations. You must knock the ball down in that situation.

Losing the game this way at least makes possible that this program will commit to playing football the right way and attempting to become great. If we win this game, it just sends the wrong message about what it takes to win in the SEC.

I blame this loss purely on the coaching staff. First I blame Richt for letting nick Marshall go to auburn. Second I blame Grantham for not rushing more guys on a 3rd and 18. Third I blame will friend for letting Tunsil and Avery young get away. Mcgarity needs to do something!!!!!!!

JHC went to knock the ball down. Tray Mathews was trying to intercept the ball….they both collided into each other….how the hell does this happen? Because it’s just a bad scheme by design! Grantham needs to fired today! Did you people see how soft our guys were tackling most the game? It’s like they were scared to hurt their former teammate the thief Marshall!
