Same Stuff, Different Day

Georgia managed just 18 first-half points against Vandy on Wednesday en route to its fourth straight loss.

A quick aside: I logged on to the AJC's Web site to read Tim Tucker's story on the game. Before reading the story, I quickly perused the quotes, certain that there would be one from Felton somehow explaining that Wednesday night's effort was something to build on. And here it was:

"I'm really proud of the way we defended and rebounded."

Please, Coach, stop sugar coating what is quickly becoming a lost season. At some point, losing is simply unacceptable, no matter how bad you made the other team's offense look or how scrappy your guys played or how close you came to winning without doing it. Take a note from the Willie Martinez fiasco during football season: The biggest complaint most fans have is a lack of accountability. If you're losing but fans know you are working to fix the problems, if they believe the losses hurt you as much as they hurt them, most fans will cut you some slack. But they don't want you to spit in their face and tell them it's raining.

Terrance Woodbury followed that quote with this: "We made a step forward as far as rebounds and wanted to do the same with turnovers, but we got panicky."

Please go back and read each of the last four game stories we've had over at the Telegraph. It's the same quotes.

Is it possible to panic during an event that has happened to you four times in the past 10 days? Oh no! The sun came up! What do we do? For the love of God, what do we do?!?!?!?

OK, perhaps that was a bit too sarcastic. Felton and Woodbury are both good guys and I know both desperately want Georgia to win. But at some point, it's time to get angry, and Georgia passed that point weeks ago.

In his post game on the radio Felton said he thought we had "turned a corner tonight in many areas." And that he kept on telling his guys, "offense is not the problem."

I don't even know where to start. Whatever corner we turned, it ain't leading us anywhere different. We shot 33% from the field, and we turned the ball over 20 plus times. We didn't shoot a FT till 4 minutes left in the game. We scored 40 for pete-sake.

I am never for firing a coach midseason but we are about 5 more Ls in a row away from that.
