Georgia Vs. Missouri: 'Old Man Football' Comments Made Bulldogs Mad

The Georgia Bulldogs didn't appreciate the "old man football" comments they heard from the Missouri Tigers during the week. So they used it as extra motivation before defeating the first-year SEC team by three touchdowns on Saturday.

Here are some thoughts from wide receiver Marlon Brown, via Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"It definitely made us mad. But we just took it as something to give us a little fire under our butts, and we just outlasted them at the end.

"That got under our skin. But at the same time, we had to make it about us. Our team, our time. We just wanted to go out there and play."

UGA fans even chanted "old man football" during the game just as a reminder to the Tigers.
