The Georgia Bulldogs were blown out at home by Ole Miss on Saturday, falling to a dismal 1-9 in SEC play under first-year head coach Tom Crean.
Though the Bulldogs got some great news on Monday, as 5-star recruit Anthony Edwards committed to the program, Crean was still thinking about Saturday when he met with reporters.
“When I saw my comments that I made, I always try to get our players to understand that you can’t let your frustration set in,” he said. “I always preach that and I try to be cognizant of that. I think I let the losing of that game and the fact that we had those lettermen there, and our fans, in general, because I didn’t think we played with the spirit and the passion that we need to. I looked back at those comments and it was like I was blaming the players and that was never my intent. It was never my intent to do that. …
“I am definitely sorry to them, which I’ve apologized to them, and we’ve talked through a lot of things.”
The Bulldogs travel to Texas A&M on Tuesday night, so we’ll see if they can bounce back from Saturday and snap their four-game losing streak.
