Following their 35-7 loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs know that they have to pick up the pieces and get ready for the second half of their season.
Speaking with Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald, Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt knows that they can get back in the SEC East race with just a little bit of help:
"It's one day, it's one game. It's unfortunate that it came out the way that it did with so much at stake. There's still a lot at stake as the season rolls on. The sun did come up and we've got to get back to work. ... If we can get back on the winning track, a lot of good things can happen. That's what we're going to be fighting hard to do."
One thing that helps the Bulldogs over the Gamecocks and the Florida Gators is the remaining schedule for the three teams. Georgia's toughest remaining game is their annual rivalry against the Florida Gators, while the Gators still have upcoming games against Georgia and South Carolina.
The Gamecocks have a tough schedule with road games against Florida and the LSU Tigers on the horizion along with a home game against the Tennessee Volunteers.
South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier knows that Georgia is not out of the division race just yet:
"Georgia’s not out of the division race right now either just because they have one loss."
Georgia cornerback Sanders Commings knows that no matter what South Carolina does, the Bulldogs just need to focus on the task at hand, starting with Kentucky on Oct. 20:
"We've got to do our job and just keep winning. Even if those guys (South Carolina) keep winning, an 11-1 season, you can't be mad at that."
