The 38-20 upset loss to Florida Saturday is sure to linger during this game week.
“The film don’t lie, the stats don’t lie,” Wilson said. “They came to play and they did a good job and we didn’t.” Asked why that is, Wilson said the Bulldogs “got too comfortable” while reeling off five straight wins after a loss to South Carolina on Sept. 13.
“We weren’t ready to play,” Wilson said. “We underestimated our opponent pretty much.” He said Georgia didn’t have its normal “fire” and intensity.
“We’ve got to keep practicing hard and get that momentum back that we had,” he said. Georgia practiced for 90 minutes Monday.
“We’ve got to shake off the dust and get back to work and get ready to play Kentucky,” coach Mark Richt said on his radio show afterwards. “We can’t let this game beat us twice.”
Defensive back Damian Swann said reviewing the Florida film earlier in the day “wasn’t hard.”
“Give them credit for winning the game,” Swann said, “but it really wasn’t about them, it was about us.” Swann said he didn’t want to get into the biggest issues in stopping the run.
