CWS: Don't worry 'bout these Dogs, right?

By Eric Sorenson - June 17, 2006

It was brought up in the post-game press conference that this is the fourth time that Georgia will be facing elimination in this post-season. Each of the three times before, the Dogs hunkered down and won. So if there's one team that can come back from an opening round loss, it would seem to be UGa.

Here's how they've done with their backs to the wall in the post-season.

SEC tournament:
First loss: Lost to Vanderbilt 9-4 in the opening round.
Result: Went on to win the next three games, scoring 37 runs, to make the SEC championship game.

First loss: Lost to Florida State in game two 6-4.
Result: Went on to go unbeaten the rest of the way, including a pair of wins over FSU, 7-1 and 3-2.

Super Regionals:
First loss: Lost to South Carolina in game one, 15-6 (including the famous five straight home runs)
Result: Swept the next two games from the 'Cocks by a combined 22-11.

College World Series:
First loss: Lost to Rice 6-4.
Result: ?
