Athens- The Georgia Bulldogs were not making any excuses after Saturday's 41-30 loss to Alabama. A game where the Bulldogs trailed 31-0 at halftime.
"We just got whipped. We just got beat really" said Georgia coach Mark Richt.
Coach Richt did find a silver lining in Saturday's loss. The fact that neither his team nor the black clad Bulldog nation gave up despite the big halftime deficit.
"They certainly deserved better than what they saw in the first half. When we rolled back out there in the second half, they were ready to cheer" said Richt.
Georgia fans had plenty to cheer for in the second half. Prince Miller's 92 yard punt return, the second longest in Bulldog history, which brought Georgia to within just two touchdowns at the start of the fourth quarter.
"We just never felt we were out of it. We knew guys would fight to the end" said Miller.
Alabama ended the Georgia comeback with ten straight points. Georgia believes they can bounce back from this loss just like they did last year at Tennessee.
"No one has their head down right now. We know we still have another of the season to go" said Knowshon Moreno.
"Still alot of football to play. We have to move and leave these mistakes in the past. Try to imporve on them and get ready for the next game" said Rennie Curran.
Alabama may have damaged Georgia's national championship hopes but the Bulldogs still have plenty to play for in the SEC starting in two weeks against Tennessee.
