QB Murray Asked To Spike It On Final Drive, UGA Didn’t, And Richt Doesn’t Have LSU’s Miles’ Luck

We’ll make this one short and sweet.  Hindsight is obviously 20/20 and if Georgia had scored a touchdown (a la LSU versus Auburn in 2007 at the 8:25 mark of this clip), no one would have said a word about the decision by UGA’s coaching staff not to spike the ball with seconds remaining in Saturday night’s 32-28 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.

But Mark Richt doesn’t have Les Miles’ kind of luck.  Miles basically did exactly what Richt did on Saturday night and it helped him win the ’07 BCS championship.  Maybe Richt needs to start wearing a hat.

Deciding to go for it rather than stop the clock, Georgia threw a (tipped) completed pass short of the end zone that allowed the clock to run out on its attempt at a miracle comeback.  And now there’s video evidence — at the 1:40 mark of the clip below — of Murray looking to the Dawgs sideline to see if his coaches wanted him to spike the ball:

 

Alabama @ Georgia – Last Drive of Game 12/1/12

 

For the record, anyone who watched that entire game — the full back-and-forth, blow-by-blow nature of it — and came to the conclusion that Richt or Murray can’t win “the big one” is flat-out goofy in our book.  UGA gave Bama everything the Tide wanted and then some.

But that won’t stop the talk of spiking the football.  Especially not now that video evidence of Murray gesturing for that very option has hit the interweb.

Oh, for a little of the Mad Hatter’s luck, eh, Dawg fans?

Im a little confused. You are talking about the sidelines telling him to spike it at 1:40 yet the time in question is the last 15 seconds.
