Let’s get caught up on all things Dog.
Eleven months after that incredible accomplishment Georgia is 11-17 overall and 2-11 in SEC play. The Razorbacks are 13-13 and 1-12 in the league. The Bulldogs have to go to Kentucky before finishing up at home against South Carolina. The Hogs are at home against Ole Miss then at Vanderbilt.
“It’s really hard to compare those teams,” Georgia interim coach Pete Herrmann said. “Arkansas had a lot of seniors and a strong, strong inside game. We were rolling in the SEC Tournament at that point and started out that game great. Arkansas came back in the second half but we were able to hang on and win that championship. It was a great time actually for both teams and really a tremendous tournament championship for us.”
Georgia has kind of had its way with Arkansas of late, winning the last three meetings, including that truly monumental 66-57 win in Georgia Tech’s Alexander Memorial Coliseum. But the Hogs are pulling out all the stops this time. They’re honoring coach Nolan Richardson and the 1993-94 Razorbacks for their national championship at halftime of the game. . . .
