Georgia Loses against Mississippi State

We're 8 and 8 on the year, 0 and 3 in the SEC. Frustrating, since we were up 13 in the second half.

We're "close, but not quite" in a lot of games. I thought we were surely going to win when Albert Jackson hit double figures, but we can't advance the ball against pressure defense. That and some careless turnovers doomed Georgia in this game.

Coach Fox will have to diagram some set plays for getting the ball up the floor. Passing the ball to Jackson in the corner should be off limits.

Any other ball-handlers out there?

My sentiment exactly.

Unfortunately, if they can deny Ware the ball we are in trouble. Not just in defeating the press, but in managing the game pace.

We have got to be the best 35 minute team in the league.

I was frustrated this afternoon at the end, but I was excited all through the first half, and even deep into the second half. The frustration is that we are that >|< freaking close to winning, and have been for three games now. Still, I can't imagine Felton having this team in this position. Also, the schedule is horrible for us. And it wouldn't hurt to have a little luck: Miss St. couldn't buy a 3 point basket in the first half, but got back into the game by suddenly finding the range. I think the main thing is for us as fans to hang in there and hope that CMF can keep the team focused through this adversity. After all, it wasn't that long ago we would have been happy just to not get blown out of a game.
