ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson said on his Twitter account he returned from the Bulldogs' lopsided loss at South Carolina on Saturday night to find a house he shares with quarterback Aaron Murray "egged and rolled."

Georgia was No. 5 before the 35-7 loss to South Carolina. The Bulldogs fell to No. 14 in The Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday.

Robinson, a senior, concluded the toilet paper and eggs on the house were a result of the loss.

He posted on his Twitter account "Came to a house that was egged and rolled. Seems that people turn on you when you're not perfect. Thought we were in this together."

Coach Mark Richt said Sunday negative feedback from fans is not a surprise. Richt said players in the public spotlight can't respond to negative displays from fans.

"I think you just hold your head high," Richt said. "You act in a first-class manner. You don't do anything that would retaliate or anything like that. Just be man enough to turn the other cheek and go about your business. That's what I would say."

Georgia (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) has a week off before playing at Kentucky on Oct. 20.

Murray completed 11 of 31 for 109 yards, the lowest total of his career, with an interception in Georgia's third straight loss in the series.

"It stinks," Murray said. "We felt like we had a great rhythm offensively going on in the first five games. We've got to go back, watch the film and make corrections and get better. It's still a long season to go and there are still six games left. Plenty of chances to get better, more games to win. We just have to watch the film and get better."

Richt said he hadn't heard of the players' home being hit with eggs and littered with toilet paper until he was asked about the incident on his weekly teleconference Sunday afternoon.
