I'm hurting and gutted like everyone else. I was proud of the amazing effort that the Bulldogs gave last night. I'm also proud of the response of Dawg Nation and how there is an outpouring of support for our team. But, I've had enough of hearing from that minority of so- called fans who are bashing the Dawgs and their leadership after that game!
Personal story - I lost my Dad when I was 12 years old and one of the last things I remember him telling me was after I lost a track meet. He put his arm around me and said "Son, did you give it your best effort?" I said "yes." He said "I'm proud of you and that is all that I ask of you -That throughout your life you give your best effort. You can't always control the final results but you can control your effort. The results will eventually come if you keep giving the effort."
Sure, we can debate some of the finer points of the game forever. But, in my opinion we can't debate that in the overall effort the Dawgs gave it all they had! Think back. Ogletree's run back. Murray getting back up after one of the most brutal blind sided hits we've ever seen in football. This team fought all the way to the end against one of the best teams of the decade.
Thank you, great fans who support our Dawgs. Also, I think voicing some frustration is part of it. But if you can't truly appreciate what a great effort that was last night, then I don't think Dawg Nation needs you. I want to win big so badly, but all I can really ask is that the team I support gives it their all. These Dawgs gave their all!
