Georgia fans impress Ball
One of the many talented visitors on UGA's campus for the Alabama game was junior defensive end Neiron Ball. He is the younger brother of Georgia redshirt freshman Neland Ball, so he knows about the Georgia program. The junior out of Jackson (GA) saw the Dawgs lose, but he really liked how the fans stood with their team.
"Georgia got down and they were getting beat, but the fans were great the whole time," said Ball. "They stayed around, they kept supporting their team, and I really liked that."
Georgia showed a lot of fight in the second half and Ball felt the Bulldogs had a chance to come back and win after the punt return by Prince Miller.
"That was the loudest the crowd ever got I think and I thought Georgia was coming back then. I think the fans thought they were, the players looked like they thought it, and I thought they really could do it. It just did not work out."
Ball wanted his older brother to be on the winning end, but he thinks Georgia will bounce back.
"I was going to stay up there with Neland after the game, but I decided to go back home after they lost. I know they were frustrated, so I did not want to hang around. Georgia lost to a good team, but I still think Georgia is the better team, and that they should have one. They just made some bad calls and Alabama played a great game."
