    Leach is doing the right thing tonight...This is how you build culture....

    respect and pride. You take the men who want to play, and you suit up and play the game. This is how you gain the respect of your team, the quitters can stay behind. ( when I say quitters, i'm not referring to those who are sick or forced to sit out due to covid procedures)

    Yes. And the players that are suiting up deserve our overwhelming support and respect.

    Yes. We are under the limit and could have canceled.

    My biggest concern is the team might be looking past Georgia with an eye on the Ole Miss game***

    Not really. Did everything we could to get out of it.

    Glad we have some high profile guys acknowledging the heart and toughness it takes to stay when everyone else is quitting around you. We have true leaders staying and a lot of really good young guys getting experience. Hopefully we are heading back to where we were during the Dak years (leadership and the team pushing each other every practice/staying after+ give everything they have every play, even if it entails stepping on an opposing player or two).

    What? Leach (and Cohen) wanted this game canceled. I guess you think the SEC is ?building character?.

    That is inconsistent with both the rules and what the media is reporting.

    It's true. The SEC is basically forcing us to play. The kids want to play, but it's a poorly handled situation by the SEC.

    Correct, we were told we could cancel this game and the coaches and players were asked. The team decided they wanted to go ahead and play.

    This is false. Our admins and coaches tried to work out something with the SEC but we were "asked" to play by the conference.

    Why...

    Would SEC ask us to play UGA but not ask Texas AM, LSU and others who have missed two weeks to play CBS games.. Sorry, I ain?t buying it...

    Sorry, but that's totally inconsistent with everything that's out there, with SEC rules, and with what the SEC has already done with games that are more important. For example, Alabama/LSU is a bigger rivalry, a bigger TV draw, and doesn't have an available makeup date since Alabama will presumably be in the SECCG on 12/19.

    We will miss our second game next week, IMO. But I can absolutely tell you we really had no choice. The SEC pushed us to play. We tried really hard to get out of it, but telling the conference no isn't really an option.
