UGA-Tennessee Live Blog

PREGAME

Greetings from Neyland Stadium. We're just a minute or two from kickoff. Some pregame notes...

-- Georgia will be kicking off first.

-- Vince Vance is starting at left tackle.

-- The Eric Berry rap video played pregame is every bit as awesome as I'd imagined.

OK, lots more to come throughout.

FIRST QUARTER, 6:40 REMAINING

-- Touchback on the kickoff. What a shocker.

-- Crompton burns Bryan Evans on each of his first two passes for a combined 41 yards to set up a first down at the Georgia 39. Another promising start.

-- By the way, last night I may have yelled "Crompton for Heisman" out the window of the car at a number of Tennessee fans. Maybe.

-- You get a really good view of the Wigsphere from the press box. It's lovely.

-- Kevin Cooper had Reshad Jones beat for an easy score but Crompton overthrew him. One play later, Crompton misses Luke Strocker, leaving Tennessee to punt. In to receive... Logan Gray!

-- Tennessee downs the punt at the 1, and Georgia's offense will have 99 yards to work with.

-- Georgia runs two tight ends -- White and Lynch -- and Cox keeps it out to the 2. Richard Samuel got the start at tailback.

-- Tennessee is flagged for offsides which gives Georgia a little breathing room. UGA still runs two tight ends with A.J. Green the only receiver split wide.

-- Samuel can't pick up a third-and-inches even with a fullback barrelling up the middle as a lead blocker. Yikes. Butler in to punt.

-- It's a 61-yard punt, which will help Butler's average a tad. Tennessee starts from its own 29.

-- The wireless password in the press box is the same as my wireless password at home. Interesting.

-- Bryce Brown in the game for Tennessee for the first time on thrid-and-9. Crompton forced to scramble and finds tight end Luke Stocker for a huge gain. A flag comes in after the play, howver, and UT is called for a clip. That pushes the Vols back 10 yards, but it's still a first down and a 16-yard gain after the flag.

-- The press box announcer calls him Cornelius Warsh-ington.

-- Crompton hits Cooper for another completion. Cooper fumbles the ball out of bounds, setting up a third-and-3.

-- Hardesty goes nowhere, and UT will have to punt again. Justin Houston on the tackle for a loss of two.

UPDATE END OF FIRST QUARTER

-- OK, so for once Logan Gray isn't out there and I guess we now know why he's been used so much. Prince Miller leaps to field a punt heading into the end zone and returns it to the 13. I officially apologize to Fabris for criticizing his use of Gray.

-- Washaun Ealey into the game for Georgia at tailback. A.J. and Moore split out wide. Orson in at tight end.

-- Marlon Brown is in the game. Interestingly, the name on the back of his uniform is simply, "Brown." Marquise Brown's uniform is "M. Brown." Cox hits A.J. for a first down.

-- Ealey picks up a first down on his first carry, a three-yard gain to the 40.

-- Moore now has three catches for 24 yards -- officially exceeding his totals from the last two games combined.

-- Cox hit his first six passes, but Wooten dropped a quick throw on the seventh attempt to bring up a third-and-3.

-- Third-and-3 at the 42... it's times like these Georgia probably wishes it had a running game. Speaking of, the Dawgs probably caught a break with the weather. Cox throwing in the rain and no established ground game would have been bad news.

-- Cox's pass is tipped at the line of scrimmage and intercepted by Chris Walker. He's tackled immediately, but the Vols set up shot at their own 44.

-- Crompton hits Quinton Hancock for a 14-yard gain, and once again there was no coverage within 7 yards of him. Prince Miller darts over to force him out of bounds.

-- Hardesty picks up a first down after consecutive impressive runs. First down at the UGA 31 for Tennessee.

-- Bryce Brown follows that with a run to the 22 for a 9-yard gain. That'll end the first quarter with Tennessee threatening.

UPDATE, SECOND QUARTER, 12:56 REMAINING

-- Interesting note: Georgia has failed to score a touchdown in seven of the last eight quarters it has played.

-- Crompton so far: 5-of-7 for 87 yards. And one of those incompletions had nothing to do with Georgia's coverage. It was an ugly overthrow of a wide open receiver.

-- Crompton throws to the end zone incomplete, but a flag comes in for pass interference on Reshad Jones. That'll set Tennessee up with a first-and-goal at the six.

-- Crompton to Jones in the flat for an easy touchdown. It was play action and Crompton rolled out to the left while Georgia completely bit on the run. Prince Miller was the closest man to Jones, but he never had a chance. Tennessee 7, Georgia 0 (8-56-4:29).

-- Boykin fields the kick 2 yards deep, goes up the middle and splits the wedge and darts down the sideline for a 102-yard touchdown. That's his second kick return for a TD this season, and I'm going to go out on a limb that this is some type of record for 100-yard plays in a season. See, Tennessee, that's why you don't kick deep! Georgia 7, Tennessee 7.

-- OK, I take it back. Willie Gault has the SEC recrod with three 100-yard returns in the same season.

UPDATE, SECOND QUARTER, 5:36 REMAINING

-- Momentum? Who needs momentum? Nu'Keese Richardson breaks the kickoff up the middle to the 40 where he's taken down by his facemask by Richard Samuel. That gives Tennessee the ball at the Georgia 45 to start its drive. I'll update my list of post big-play kickoff debacles later.

-- Georgia's D is making Crompton look like a star. He completes another 12-yard gain to the 33. Prince Miller on the tackle.

-- Crompton hits Denarius Moore at the 30-yard line and Rennie Curran misses a tackle. Moore darts through three Georgia defenders down the sideline, eluding a diving shoulder tackle by Bryan Evans, for a 33-yard touchdown. Tennessee 14, Georgia 7 (3-45-1:19)

-- Crompton's numbers so far: 8-of-11 for 138 yards and two touchdowns.

-- Marlon was wide open on a third-and-6 and Cox hit him in stride... only he dropped it. A flag comes in following the incompletion, however, and the boos from Tennessee's fans are loud. Turns out, the flag was against Georgia for a false start on Green, which is a blessing in disguise. It was a dead ball foul, so Georgia gets a do-over from 5 yards farther back.

-- Cox hits Chapas who picks up about 8 yards after the catch for a first down.

-- Mike Moore flagged for a clip, negating a 4-yard run by Ealey. That'll back Georgia up to the 19 to set up a first-and-16. I'm barely staying awake here. Need more coffee.

-- Carlton Thomas comes onto the field for the first time in... well, a while. What's that say about Richard Samuel, by the way?

-- There's Marlon Brown's first reception. The press box announcer calls him Marion Brown. It's a nine-yard gain to set up third-and-6.

-- Cox hits A.J. to the 47. Tennessee brought the house on that one and credit to Carlton Thomas who did a nice job of picking up his block and giving Cox just enough time to get the throw off. Cox hits A.J. again on the next play, but Green drops it. Green comes off the field holding his hand.

-- Carlton Thomas gets his first carry since the Arkansas game for a 12-yard gain. First down at the Tennessee 41.

-- Israel Troupe made his first appearance of the game. Georgia has a third-and-4 at the 35 and Cox throws incomplete. Walsh comes in for a 52-yard field goal try. And it's good. Tennessee 14, Georgia 10. (13-51-5:49)

UPDATE, END OF SECOND QUARTER

-- Walsh is now 3-for-3 from outside 50 this season and is 5-of-8 in his career.

-- Richardson returns it to the Tennessee 29. Two other notes worth mentioning: 1.) Arkansas is killing Auburn. Nice work on my picks again this week. 2.) Got to see three cops absolutely beat the crap out of a drunk Tennessee fan last night. That was good times. The highlight was when one cop slipped and fell while trying to kick the guy.

-- Hey, another completion for Crompton takes the ball out to the 41 for another first down. Boy, this Crompton fellow is quite good. Funny that I hadn't heard anything about him prior to the game. He certainly couldn't be the same guy who was booed by his own fans during the pregame introductions.

-- Crompton was under pressure and got a pass off to Jones. Bryan Evans went for the pick and Jones made the catch, spun, and darted 33 yards down the field for a first down before Reshad Jones pushed him out of bounds.

-- Crompton hits Denarius Moore again for a 14-yard gain to the 5. I have to say, I'm not looking forward to hearing the "Fire Willie" cries this week. It's going to be ugly.

-- Crompton hits Marsalis Teague for a 5-yard TD in the back of the end zone. There was NO ONE anywhere near Teague for Georgia. I could have completed that pass. Wow. Tennessee 21, Georgia 10 (6-74-2:50)

-- It's rare you get to be at a game where fans are derisively chanting "Crompton for Heisman" before kickoff and actually chanting "Cromtpon for Heisman" before halftime. His numbers so far: 12-of-15 for 205 yards and 3 TDs. Best press box comment of the day so far: "Man, Georgia's D is making Crompton look like Stephen Garcia."

-- Richard Samuel back in at tailback. Eric Berry absolutely levels Cox in the backfield, while Joe manages to get off a rocket pass to a grad assistant on the sideline.

-- So much for the great pass blocking. Cox has been on his backside on two of the past three plays. Georgia will punt again after a three-and-out.

-- I give you folks credit... at least you're having a little fun with this debacle. I've enjoyed the comments so far immensely. Keep up the good work.

-- Georgia blocks Tennessee's punt... Zach Renner! Where have you been all season? That goes for a safety. Tennessee 21, Georgia 12. (BTW, 21-12 is my favorite Rush albmum.)

-- Please explain to me how you think you can get a play off in less than one second. Why would you spike it with 1 second left? Take a shot down the field. That's the only option. How do you not know this? It is physically impossible to take the snap and spike the ball without the one second ticking off. It's not college basketball. I'm dumfounded.

-- Halftime score: Tenn 21, Georgia 12.

HALFTIME NOTES

-- Crompton has never had more than two TD passes against a BCS conference opponent in his career. He's only ever done it once, and that was against woeful Western Kentucky in Week 1 this season. In his career, he has nine TD passes and 13 INTs against BCS conference opponents. In two quarters of football today: He's 12-of-15 for 205 yards and 3 TDs. Yikes.

-- Press box spread: Wings, chili dogs, ice cream and cookies. I will never say a bad word about Tennessee again as long as I live.

-- Cox's numbers: 13-of-20 for 126 yards and an INT. Twenty throws in the first half. Not a good sign. Oh, and as for "balance" -- Georgia has run the ball just nine times for 30 yards.

-- Tennessee averaging just three yards a carry on the ground, but Crompton has looked great. The Bulldogs don't have a sack yet either. So much for that six-sack effort last week.

-- First downs: UT 12, Georgia 8. Penalties: UGA 5-50, Tenn 6-42. TOP: UT 16:21, UGA 13:39.

UPDATE, THIRD QUARTER, 8:21 REMAINING

-- Cox fumbles a snap and tries to recover and throw out of bounds. He doesn't get it there though and Dennis Rogan comes up with the interception at the UGA 49. Man, Cox has looked like a freshman today -- just a ton of poor decisions.

-- Zach Rogers takes a handoff and goes 15 yards to the Georgia 34. More missed tackles along the way. This game has really exposed just about every flaw Georgia has, and we've still got 27 minutes left to play.

-- Another big completion for Crompton to Jones, picking up 14 to the UGA 15. You could say this has been a Rocky Flop for Georgia. Get it? Rocky Flop? Cuz it's Tennessee. That's gold, Jerry. Gold.

-- Georgia's defense holds, forcing a field goal. Daniel Lincoln connects from 30 yards out. Tennessee 24, Georgia 12 (7-36-2:33)

-- What are the odds the coaches start thinking about removing that redshirt from Aaron Murray?

-- As good as he looked last week, Ealey has done nothing this week. Not going to win many SEC games if you can't run the football at all.

-- Cox had Orson Charles open on third-and-11 and threw behind him. He was once again under a ton of pressure again. The supposedly great pass blocking has definitely not been that today.

-- Rogan muffed the punt -- another great one from Butler -- and the ball stayed on the ground for what seemed like about an hour-and-a-half. Finally Rogan recovered it as Georgia's coverage team dove in. Tennessee ball.

-- Baccari Rambo picks off a Crompton pass (and this was vintage Crompton!) and Prince Miller lays out a nice block to help Rambo to the end zone. Tennessee 24, Georgia 19.

-- This is the closest blowout I've ever watched. Wait... didn't I say that last week?

UPDATED, END OF THIRD QUARTER

-- Just a quick score breakdown: Georgia's defense -- 9 points. Georgia's special teams -- 7 points. Georgia's offense -- 3 points.

-- That's Georgia's first defensive score since Darryl Gamble's second INT return last year against LSU.

-- Breaking news: Tim Tebow has been cleared to play tonight. I just don't have the energy to make a joke here.

-- Hmmm... a kickoff that nearly goes out of the end zone and results in a touchback. Interesting philosophy, but I'm not sure I can agree with it.

-- Nice open-field tackle by Baccari Rambo. To paraphrase what Willie Martinez should be saying: "Bottom line, this kid executes. Bottom line."

-- Crompton hits Moore for an 18-yard gain. Boykin had some ugly coverage on that one, Reshad made the tackle.

-- Christian Robinson in the game. Crompton completes another third-down pass, hitting Nu'Kese Richardson for a first down.

-- And one play later, Hardesty goes right down the middle for a 39-yard touchdown run. Tennessee 31, Georgia 19 (8-80-4:15)

-- Total yards so far: Tennessee 369, Georgia 167. Just an FYI, I haven't ready any comments since before halftime. I'll probably wait til after the game to really digest them.

-- Cox throws a very ill-advised pass to Green who manages to escape a tackle 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Green circles around and nearly has his head ripped off for a 1-yard loss.

-- Logan Gray in, and in a move absolutely no one could have seen coming, he keeps for no gain. Joe Cox back in.

-- Remember when everyone was saying how "catchable" Cox's throws were? Moore just had at least the fourth ugly drop of the day by a receiver. Another three-and-out... the third in a row for the Dawgs.

-- Prince Miller kicks a Butler punt in the wrong direction. This game feels like it should be accompanied by the Benny Hill theme music.

-- One bit of good news for next week: Army is currently beating Vanderbilt 13-10.

-- Hardesty carries about five Georgia defenders for six yards to pick up a first down. He's good. Georgia is not.

-- Crompton goes deep and hits Jones for a 51-yard touchdown. Jones was wide open, burning Prince Miller badly. That's TD No. 4 for Crompton. Tennessee 39, Georgia 19 (3-62-1:20)

-- That's a career high in passing yards for Crompton, obviously. He's now at 301 yards -- the third QB to post a 300-yard game against Georgia this season.

-- Another illegal block in the back penalty against Georgia -- this one on Christian Robinson -- will have the Dawgs start their drive at the 9-yard line. OK, I'm saying it -- Logan Gray needs to be in the game.

-- Cox hits A.J. for no gain. A.J. is visibly frustrated on the sideline. This is just getting ugly.

-- Another pass tipped at the line of scrimmage and falls incomplete. The only saving grace for Georgia is that they aren't at home right now. The boos might be louder than the cheers Tennessee is getting. The third quarter mercifully comes to an end without Georgia earning a first down.

UPDATE, FOURTH QUARTER, 5:09 REMAINING

-- So Georgia's offense didn't score a TD in the final three quarters against Arizona State. Didn't score in the first three quarters against LSU. And hasn't gotten into the end zone in the first three quarters of this game. Disaster.

-- 431 yards of total offense for Tennessee so far... and counting. The Vols have outgained Georgia 130-41 on the ground.

-- My mistake -- Georgia did earn one first down in the third quarter. Big oversight on my part. My apologies to Washaun Ealey for forgetting his 1-yard run on Georgia's first drive of the half.

-- Tennessee fans are doing the wave. With all the orange, it kind of looks like an Ocean Spray commercial. I'm dizzy.

-- Brandon Boykin gets hurt and is limping off the field. Injury to insult. What a day.

-- Probably worth pointing out -- the pass blocking has been much worse today, and Caleb King and Richard Samuel have barely played. How much of a connection might there be?

-- Carlton Thomas goes around the edge to pick up 13 yards. Thomas has been the lone offensive highlight today.

-- Boykin is up and moving around on the sideline with his helmet in his hand, but he's still limping noticeably.

-- Cox hits Mike Moore on fourth down and Moore gets hit by Eric Berry, coughs up the football and Berry takes the ball away and returns it all the way to the Georgia 11-yard line. Neyland Stadium has been an absolute house of horros for Georgia the past two visits.

-- Pass interference on Prince Miller in the end zone puts the ball at the 2. Boykin is on the field but really limping.

-- And another pass interference flag on Georgia. This one on Boykin. Willie just chucked his clipboard about 10 yards down the field.

-- And this time Bryce Brown walks in from a yard out, the icing on this turd-flavored cake. Tennessee 45, Georgia 19 (2-14-0:57)

-- Georgia has 16 turnovers this season which have led to 71 points by the opposition. Georgia has created five turnovers for 13 points.

-- Logan Gray finally in at QB. Richard Samuel picks up 17 to the UGA 43.

-- Marlon is being booed mercillously each time he's targeted. You stay classy, UT fans.

-- Gray keeps for 6 yards and is pounded after picking up the first down. That's the most successful that play has been all year.

-- On fourth-and-5, Gray throws behind Aron White, who was open downfield. The pressure came from the UT defense yet again. Tennessee fans are leaving to get an early start on the celebration down at the Wigsphere.

-- I think that'll do it for me, too. I've seen enough. Please try to keep the comments civil enough that the blog doesn't show up on any FBI surveilance. Other than that, I'll have notes in about two hours.

Good kickoff at least. This bend but don't break is also bending our offense. Still biting way too hard on the play fake. Are we really making Crompton look that good? Tennessee is shooting themselves more than us with 2 big penalties already

Prince Miller fielding the punt from the goal line shows me a lot...

Wow, showing the nuttiness of our punt-return game already: 1 obvious no-try from Logan, 1 brain-fart by the would-have-been-a-try. Even when we get what we asked for (Prince returning instead of Logan), we pay a price... :(

Boykin's return = huge shot in the arm. #23 owes him dinner, since that play keeps the SEC network from dwelling Prince's fine performance on the UT TD. Glad to see he performs about the same on this goal line, too.

Wow, we haven't seen tackling like this since... the end of the LSU game.

Warren T said...

TV announcers falling all over themselves about Crompton. Helps your QB look good when the defense has no one within 10-15 yards of a receiver in the endzone, even though the line of scrimmage is inside the 10. I think Loran Smith might have been able to make that throw!

Not that impressed with Crompton. Not that impressed with our pass defense.

What's the excuse this week? Too many freshmen? Too hot? I can't wait.

Prince Lightfoot said...

TV announcers also can't count to 3 and for some reason think UGA decided not to stop the clock before TN punt.

Prince Lightfoot said...

So, are we to believe that Joe's arm is somehow strong enough to throw that ball faster than the speed of light and, by spiking it, put time back on the clock? How else to explain that last play?

i guess we will make crompton an all american.....

That's it. I'm off the bandwagon. No team this talented should be playing this crappy. It's time to clean house. Send Richt back to FSU, Martinez back to Echols county high.

"Please explain to me how you think you can get a play off in less than one second. Why would you spike it with 1 second left? ... I'm dumfounded."

-- Hey, unless you have actually played QB in college, you are not really qualified to comment on how futile it is to spike the ball with 1 second left. Isn't that right, Joe?

-- At least it wasn't a pick 6...

-- I'm surprised we didn't run a draw to Sanks ... er Samuel.

Anonymous said...

I've been watching UGA since 1977 and that's the worst pair of safeties we've ever fielded as a pair. Why do they continue to play and why do we 4 man rush to help expose them? They don't cover, react, or wrap up. Two athletic guys that don't belong in a football uniform. That they continue to play is only a reflection on the defensive coordinator. Promote Garner before he leaves.

Oh well, some things never change. Paricularly the old adage that goes..."if you want your football team to get healthy...play Georgia."

I mean how can the defensive line play so well against LSU and then let an undersized offensive line (between the tackles anyway) like Tennessee has beat them up? Answer? See above quote.

More fine work by Le Dauphin on the last TD.

On the upside, this game should resolve any uncertainty that remains in the timing of our kickoff for the rest of the season.

What a joke. This is the one most embarrassing game I've ever seen as a Georgia fan. Getting blown out by a mediocre team.

Play action pass by Crompton. Is it that hard to figure out?

Heads need to roll. Oh wait, Richt's to stubborn or loyal to do anything about that.

Playing like this could result in a 6-6 season.

Warren T said...

According to Vol Radio Network, which I turned on for a moment when my Peachtree TV went out, UT scored 17 points in the 3rd quarter today, but had scored a combined 14 points in the third quarter the rest of the season.

Also, over 400 yards of offense for Vols in the first 3 quarters. Sit, defense, sit.

AC in Boulder said...

I am a huge optimist, but for the first time I say Silly Willie has to go. This tenn team is not good, but they look like world beaters against a team that just can't tackle. I'm going to watch this and remember these hillbilly yokels belting out their ignorant song. If I was a dentist I would set up my practice in knoxville.

Anonymous said...

Have we had a safety within 5 yards of any completion at any point today?

Anonymous said...

Ok...time to try something new. Put Logan Gray in, let him run the offense, not just run the same play every time. Joe Cox cannot throw a pass without staring his receiver down. The reason we can't run is because they are trying to make us beat them with the pass (can't do it with J.C.).Our defensive strategy, if you want to call it that, is absolutely awful (particularly on 3rd downs). We have absolutely too much talent to suck this bad.

David,
Please use the last 11 minutes to think of as many hard questions as possible. 1. Does Bobo expect to fool anyone when he runs the same play everytime that Gray is in? 2. Is Prince really worthy of starting?
Please add from here.

I take that back .... this second half eerily similar to the second half against UT in 06, watching the JT3 meltdown.

Was there. No fun.

VERY glad I'm not there today. Knoxville after a beatdown very not fun.

Dear Coach,
Joe Cox is a bad player.. please find a replacement before the Florida game on Halloween.. Please don't let him ruin my Halloween.. also i think Joe Cox and Shaun Chapas are working together to sabotage the games.. stick to the three Kings and AJ. GO Dawgs!

Here is a suggested list of questions for the coach

* Why keep putting Logan in each game for the same exact play?
* Does Joe Cox still give us "the best chance to win" and if so, what the heck are we doing to prepare the other guys, because he isn't getting it done.
* How does it feel to drop to the 3rd best team in the west?
* How do you think this lopsided win - the second in 3 years - will affect recruiting?
* Have you considered putting Richard Samuel on the kickoff coverage team?
* Does anyone know Will Muschamp's cell phone number?
* How do you account for the performance of the offensive line?
* I know you said that penalties were a focus in the offseason. Did you quit focusing on that when the season started?
* I know you mentioned that the 20 hour rule made it tough to practice everything - have you thought of cutting out practicing how to turn over the ball? I think you have that nailed.
* They say Rocky Top kinda grows on you. Well, does it?

Warren T said...

I realized my comments are probably overly slanted towards the defense. The offense, as David has pointed out, is arguably equally or more responsible. Turnovers, putting the D in bad spots, etc.

As David said, "Not going to win many SEC games if you can't run the football at all." Tommy Tubervile slammed Richt in his first season with a similar comment, and this team is good evidence of it. Tennessee (at least is this game) is too: those stretch plays Hardesty was running--even though most without a lot of success--is what opened up those bootlegs & play actions for Crompton.

Also, let's not forgot Eric Berry is a B.A. (as I watch the return by him), and the refs are still picking on us too (as I watch 2, really bad interference calls).

In 1997 (I think?) I was standing near the sidelines behind Adrian Karsten as we were getting waxed before halftime, heckling him. He turned and said, "You hear that clicking sound? It's America changing the channel..." I'm reminded of this watching UT score their 45th point. :(

so we put in Gray, but then stick Samuel back in.

Does Bobo have a magic 8 ball that he uses for personnel?

If coaching changes aren't soon, I'd jump ship to the NFL if I were AJ.

7.6 yards per play for Tennessee.

I believe it won't be long before Michael Adams and Damon Evans step in. Much the same as they're doing in Tallahassee...

Do you suppose Spurrier wishes he had another crack at the Dawgs?

Hopefully this game will be the basis for the forced ouster of Bobo.

prince miller and bryan evans should not be playing period. Safeteys are non existant
everyone on defense freezes on play action every time.
D-line has never heard of containment on bootleg or rollout.

Vandy just lost, but will get their season on track next week with a win against us.

Can we send Rep. Joe Wilson to the next Mark Richt press conference? Please!!!

"Here's what I am going to take away from this game. Tennessee is getting better each week."

We, however, are definitely not.

What just happened on that 4th down? What was the penalty that the announcers were too busy wanking to mention?

And the saddest part for me? I don't expect UGA to be any better next year.

AC in Boulder said...

What a sad and embarrasing day, but at least this will lead to changes. We'll be fine and Silly
Willy and Dodo Bobo will have to go for sure now. right?

On the bright side...we could easily be 0-6 right?

Everyone has been wondering what this team's identity is. If you don't know by now then you'll never know.

Any predictions on the number of recruits decommitting? 2

FML...FML...FML...FML...FML...

we haven't been commited to the run since the opening drive of the year...carlton thomas hasn't seen the field in 2 games but he's our best option in the 3rd and 4th qtr...FML...Samuels is a linebacker playing TB...please move him back to the right side of the ball...stop playing around with a kids career....like Kiante, Brandon Miller, Marcus Howard the lists goes on and on...use them at their "God-given" natural postion... Our offensive line run blocks like the pass block...they catch people vs attacking them...FML...FML...FML..I wish we had a court room setting at let Richt, Bobo, Martinez and Fabris listen to "witnesses" chastise them....there is no excuse! I predict Richt leaves for FSU! FSU doesn't want Jimbo Fisher...Maybe we'll get brian kelly from cincy or chris peterson from boise...some one who pays attention to the small things!

What the heck is FML?

Prince Miller should never see the field again on Defense. Whole Defensive coaching staff need to go (yes, Gardner too...our D line makes tackles 5 yards down field.)

While we are at it...Send UGA VII packing as well and find us a mascot that has some "Aggressiveness" not sitting around half asleep in his crate! My Schnauzer gets more excited.

I just sent my email.

Try to be short, to the point and clean. For those of us who can remember, this is the route (through administration) we took to replace Ray Goff.

We don't need to replace CMR but we do need to shake up the staff...and he can't/won't do it.

HORID, HORID, HORID....The days of Ray Goff have returned...

The wigsphere reference was awesome.

In Uga VII's defense, would YOU be excited by this team? Maybe he's smarter than we think.

Muckbeast said...

Is there any way to entice Suzanne Yoculan out of retirement to coach our defense?

At least she knew how to coach people to win and play tough - not to mention her killer instinct.

Anonymous said...

UGA will get butter and butter.

AC in Boulder said...

not sure about what FML is either. think horid is supposed to be horrid, but get it and yoculan comment was FUNNY!

ChattaDawg said...

Prince Miller gave no effort to try and stop two TD's today. At least make the attempt...No way does he play for a Nick Saban with that kind of effort.

Dawgs have a lot of work to do just to become a "good" team this year.

I am embarassed to sa I have defended the coaching staff for so long. Playcalling: inept, defendsive adjustment: not apparent..CMR looked frustrated on the sidelines but will tap dance thru the press conferences and not place accountability on anyone. The one difference I did note was te Vol defensive players talking it up on the sidelines..staying pepped up..showing spirit..passion..the killer instinct..no so the Dawgs..they looked lost nnd defeated. My local station lost coverage with 5 minutes to go..kinda a merciful Heidi. Too bad Dawgs..you had so much potential...they got after your asses..Erk will roll over in anger. PS: I hate to critique as anonymous but getting too old to remember my passwords

fml=i hate my "effing" life...cause we suck mostly...

dawgjammin said...

bobo's play calling is hit or miss...the guy has no clue how to call plays or construct drives that will result in first downs...its either punt or long td...he SUCKZ

I don't know whats more embarrassing...
The fact that we lost to the vols, or the fact that we made them look REALLY good
