Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson's house has been pelted with eggs and covered in toilet paper following his team's loss on Saturday.

The NCAA match Saturday saw the Georgia Bulldogs suffer a loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks with a score of 35-7, upsetting Georgia's fans.

Robinson, a senior, said that the house he shares with Georgia's quarterback Aaron Murray, was "egged and rolled" via Twitter.

"Came to a house that was egged and rolled," wrote Robinson following the game on Sunday. "Seems that people turn on you when you're not perfect. Thought we were in this together."

The athlete assumed the attack was the result of his team's loss. The Bulldogs were at No. 5 before Saturday, with the defeat knocking them to No. 14 in the Associated Press' Top 25 on Sunday.

Despite the negative feedback, Robinson remained optimistic on the social media site.

"Still get to be a hero this morning to little kids at Athens Church," wrote the athlete. "There are more important things in life than wins and loses [sic]. #Heaven"

Georgia's coach Mark Richt added his reaction to the egg and toilet paper attack, saying he was unsurprised by fans' reactions.

"Sometimes that comes with the territory," said the coach during Sunday's teleconference, according to the Associated Press. "You're a public figure and people get upset about things. It's sad something like that would happen but it's not shocking people get criticism or something like that happened to them when they're in the type position those guys are in, especially the quarterback position.

"I think you should just hold your head high," added Richt. "You act in 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."

While the Bulldogs are off this week, the team faces Kentucky Wildcats on Oct. 20.
