imageThe touching moment after the UGA-Arkansas game

One of the most touching moments of the season was after UGA’s game last Saturday, when many Bulldog players went out of their way to hug Arkansas coach Sam Pittman before leaving the field.

    Kirby may be the architect but Sam Pittman and Tray Scott are as responsible for getting UGA to elite status as any coach who has served on Kirby’s staff. The UGA players couldn’t have cared less about how Arkansas performed. The Pit Boss deserved the players’ adoration and respect. When Coach Scott gets his opportunity to move up in the coaching ranks, I suspect he will be treated the same way when he comes back to UGA!

    It doesn't get any better than that! Always a DGD,hard not to respect someone such as Coach Pittman. It's not just in Arkansas he's well liked, he will always be a DAWG in my heart, yesssirrrr..GoDAWGS!

    The UGA players to the man like and respect the Pitt Boss. That is evident. I want to know what he whispered in Smart's ear? He seemed in a real hurry to get to Kirby at games end. Tough loss for any coach. The pit the Pitt Boss fell into was his lack of preparation. UGA ran through their defenses at will. They had simply no response whatsoever. That puzzled me until I realized they are not a great team but a good team up against a great team. Pittman will leave a mark at Ark. when he leaves one day....a good mark.

    Forget the score, the man is a winner.

    Good relationships is the hallmark of football, and any other sport - from little league, to professional sports. Some few coaches are masters at engendering it the hearts of their players, and such is contagious, as it spreads from player to player. Such leads to a cohesive team, and being a cohesive unit (offense and defense) is what makes champions. GO DAWGS!

    The post game hugs showed the deep, mutual respect that the Georgia players have for Sam Pittman and that Sam Pittman has for the kids he helped develop into the Champions they, very soon, will be.

    I don't think there is another coach in all of college football that would "fit" better at Arkansas. I am not sure he will be able to consistently win championships at Arkansas, but I am sure that he will make Arkansas football relevant. And he will inspire those young men to be the best they can be in life as well as football. DGD Coach Pittman. You will always be in our hearts, and we wish the best for you.

    I don't think there would be another coach who would get that reaction from the opposing team. Sure, his team lost. But in the bigger picture, he is a winner. Arkansas will do well with Sam Pittman and I am sure he will guide them to a trip to Atlanta in the near future. I'll be rooting for him except when he plays Georgia.

    And remember, he's still getting that kind of love after having played against us last year. People always remember how you treat them and obviously, Sam Pittman treated (and treats) a lot of people right. I don't think you'd get the same reaction from UGA folks for say, Jeremy Pruitt. Go Dawgs!

    I respect the man very much and I hope that we play again this year in Atlanta. I don't think that will happen but I still hope it will.

    It's amazing it took so long for this man to become a head coach. He represents everything that is great about college athletics & that has been missing for so long. He makes it easy to cheer for him. A **** good hawg that became a **** good dawg that reverted back to a **** good hawg!!! Best wishes coach.

    His press conferences are epic.
