I’ve given myself 24 hours to chew on this one…a personal rule that I apply after tough losses.
Can’t lay this one on Scott Blair and the missed PAT.
Blair didn’t choose to go for it on 4th and two on the UGA 19 yard line. We have to kick the FG there, take the points, and kicked off to UGA again.
Blair didn’t fumble the ball on the UGA five yard line after the defense stopped UGA three and out and GT got the ball at midfield. Score should have been 10-0 at that point…but it wasn’t…it was still 0-0.
Blair didn’t fumble the ball on the UGA 13 yard line after special teams forced a turnover and gave the offense the ball on the UGA 34. It was 21-21 at that point and GT squandered the chance to make it at least 24-21 while taking the lead.
Blair didn’t pitch the most costly fumble to an a-back that was about to get plastered. UGA picked that one up and returned it 18 yards for a TD and the ultimate margin of victory.
Sure…Blair missed a routine PAT attempt after Tech
