Georgia’s 35-7 beatdown at the hands of South Carolina was a tough a difficult one to take as it stripped the Bulldogs of controlling its own destiny in the SEC East.
It apparently was a very difficult one for at least a handful of the UGA faithful as well.
Linebacker Christian Robinson claimed on his Twitter account a few hours after the loss that he came home to the residence he shares with starting quarterback Aaron Murray and found it had been egged and toilet papered. The senior indicated that it was the handiwork of some disgruntled fans.
Wrote Murray on Twitter, “yep what a great thing to come home to for us.”
For his part, head coach Mark Richt brushed off the “sad” incident and chalked it up to people getting “upset” over such things as a football game.
“Sometimes that comes with the territory,” he said. “You’re a public figure and people get upset about things. It’s sad something like that would happen but it’s not shocking people get criticism or something like that happened to them when they’re in the type position those guys are in, especially the quarterback position.”
If it was indeed UGA fans who decided to take their frustrations out on the players’ home, it shouldn’t paint the entire fan base as one huge get-a-life group. Those responsible, though, might want to take note of the attitude of one of the players who was the target of their angst and realize their priorities are more-than-slightly out of whack.
