Many former UGA players were in attendance for the Bulldogs’ win over Missouri on homecoming — Todd Gurley included — but those who couldn’t make the game in person still took to Twitter to share their opinions on the victory.
Former UGA linebacker Amarlo Herrera began the night by tweeting what most UGA fans were probably thinking.
If we can get this W and UF get a L tonight then we back in the race for a SEC Championship

During the game, the mood wasn’t as optimistic.
"The dawgs are forced to punt" ….. Sounds like a common theme

I really hate that targeting rule. Give the player a flag and move on. Don't throw the player out the game.

But ultimately, UGA pulled out the win and a few players were able to put things in perspective.
Coach Richt just said I love you no matter what happens to his kicker before he went out to kick out a possible game winning FG. Its good!

Slug fest for my dawgs but this is the SEC and a win is a win! Goals still front and center for the East
