Idaho Statesman: “Dawg pounded: Short-handed Boise State dominates Georgia”

It’s always interesting to check out the hometown newspaper . . .

And one has to give the Idaho Statesman credit for the headline “Dawg Pounded”.

The paper has a lot of other coverage of the game, but the main piece is here:

The program that keeps breaking new ground handled No. 19 Georgia 35-21 on Saturday night at the jam-packed, red-filled Georgia Dome — punching another hole in the skeptics’ argument against the Broncos being a national power.

“They’ve got a bunch of well-coached, great athletes who just played a great game,” Georgia sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray said.

The No. 5 Broncos dominated the showdown from the middle of the second quarter to the second-to-last play, when defensive end Jarrell Root buried Murray on his own 3-yard line with a few ticks left.

For the record, I’ve been wondering for a couple of years now why UGA keeps Mark Richt around. Clearly he’s able to run a college a program, but it sure seems like his shot at another national championship contender is fading. Over the last 2-plus years, his teams are 14-13. He makes about $3 million a year.
