Sunday Teleconference Notes (11/8)

Not much to come of the Sunday teleconference with Mark Richt, but here are a few tidbits...

-- Richt said the coaching staff has a much better feel now of how to use Georgia's tailbacks in a way that compliments each other, but added that giving playing time to Washaun Ealey has been a big boost to the running game.

-- The other major addition to the running game has been the new-look offensive line. Richt said that it's easier to help a tackle in pass protection than to help a guard in run blocking, so moving Cordy Glenn inside and pairing Chris and Josh Davis on the right side has been effective in opening up more holes down the middle.

-- Richt said he has yet to decide how he'll handle the penalty issue this week. He said he's unlikely to stick to the policy he had last week of removing a player for the remainder of a series after a flag, but said he hasn't ruled out pulling them for one or two plays after a penalty.

-- One of those things you probably don't notice from the stands or on TV, but Richt said Fred Munzenmaier had the best game of his career and attributed some of the running game's success to some exceptional blocking done by the second-string fullback.

-- Richt said he's getting increasingly frustrated with the lack of takeaways, but said much of the problem against Tennessee Tech was caused by the Golden Eagles' overly conservative approach. Despite being down big early, Tennessee Tech still threw just 16 passes in the game, and few were farther than 10 yards. Richt said the best play on a ball was made by Baccari Rambo, who nearly made a nifty catch for a pick on one of TT's rare downfield passes.

-- Richt said defensive end Montez Robinson had been very homesick, but downplayed the freshman's considerations of a transfer. Given Robinson's two-sack performance Saturday, Richt said that's often all it takes to give a boost of morale to a freshman.

-- A.J. Green and Justin Houston are both expected to play this week.

David-

Did you sense or hear anything about Montez b/f Richt commented about it?
I'm also beginning to think that Rambo is our best defensive player.

A key off-season focus of the staff should be to find Robinson a girlfriend. He looks like he could be a player. David, do you have access to Robinson for the purposes of interviews, or are freshman off-limits? I would be curious as to his take on the transfer rumors to Purdue.

David,
This is a different topic but do you know if any of the incoming freshmen are planning on enrolling in January? I would guess the safety from GMC.

Saw your story on Brandon Wheeling's scholarship last week. I thought I read a story from Loren Smith about Zack Renner getting a scholarship, but I haven't seen a press release or anything from other media outlets. How come?

CMR said the coaching staff has a much better feel now of how to use Georgia's tailbacks.

lmao... CMR has no clue how to beat Auburn.

disgusteddawg said...

looks like 5-5 when Auburn wins and beats our suck ass team.

So disgusted... I need another drink

disgusteddawg aka "disgustingposer"...grow up...seriously, posing as a GA fan on a blog site...how fun could that possibly be?

DisgustingDawg, I think you've had enough firewater. A wise man once told me that alcohol makes you more of what you really are... in your case, a pathetic loser.

disgusteddawg said...

Hey... I'm upset.

can I not vent???

on a bright note. the falcons won. Yay!

Disgusted Dawg appears to have no sack, what a weeny (or maybe an AU fan that stole a computer...on second thought, they may be the same thing.) If I were an Quburn fan I would try to pretend CMR doesn't know how to beat uburn either since he has been laying the wood to them the last three years. Yeah, he can't seen to figure the BArn out. What a tool!

I would think an OL coach would know how to best utilize an underperforming line before Week #10. That said, the blocking did look better at Vandy and in JAX. It has been the worst performing unit on the team thus far.

disgusteddawg said...

Next week on my yahoo college pick em. I hate to do this but I'm seriously thinking about taking Auburn. I'm leading my group and I just don't have confidence in this stinking ass Georgia team

Guys, until we beat some "good" or "mediocre" teams we should expect to continue to lose. I am taking a wait and see attitude as to whether our "coaches" could win a game against a quality opponent. We are back to the donnan years. Anyone who says differently has had too much to drink. What is our biggest win this year? Vandy? Ark? SC? What is our biggest loss? LSU? Tenn? Fla? OST?

Someone get Montez a hooker....

In a "football sense" we did beat LSU. Referees be damned that game was ours until a ref invented a call. He didn't blow it, he made it up. We aren't where we want to be, but the sky isn't exactly falling here. Look at OU, USC, ND, and several others if you want to see teams that are falling short of expectations. We weren't expected to be a powerhouse this year, and we haven't played an easy schedule.

I had been hoping that this blog would remain idiot trash talking, fire the coach, we suck comment free. David, I guess your plea to keep the blog comments to something semi-intelligent has not worked. Those “suck ass” comments are better suited for the AJC site. I hope we can continue to use these comments to post intelligent questions and insightful comments.

I was at the game Saturday and offer the following comments:

1. There was a pretty good crowd, better than I expected.
2. Tailgating was significantly off though.
3. When CMR said he would use the QB that gave us the best chance to win, he was right that Cox was it. LG may get better, but from what I have seen, he is not even close to being ready.
4. I wanted to see Brown get a catch or two to see how he would do but they didn’t even seem to look his way.
5. Smith in the wildcat looked pretty good. We should do that more.


Closing comment: David, turned around a few times and looked up into the press box. Every time I saw you, you were eating something! How does the press box food at UGA rank with other institutions?

I agree with Macon, tailsgating was off. The crowd was a little slack but still a good number there. I hate to admit this, but I really enjoyed my time at the game. No drunk students, or other fans. Lots of kids, which put a smile on my face. Makes me remember when I would come with my Dad. I guess what I am saying is that the price of sucess is sometimes not worth what is lost. A healthy family freindly enviroment. Before Saturday I would have never brought a child to the football game. The tailgating scene is too rough with all the drinking. Our seats are next to the student section and interestingly enough the fans in our section are the ones I worry about kids being exposed to. It stinks to be just above .500 but nice to enjoy a civil football experience.

Macon said...

One other comment about the game. I agree with the poster above. We took our kids and they had a blast! We are near the end zone student section and it was not full at all. It seems that the students did not support the game this time.
A Saturday night Auburn game will definitely not be "family friendly"

aPeople who whine about other people's opinion is what David was talking about. Just because you don't agree with a guy doesn't mean we need to see a half dozen insulting remarks about his genitals.

Grow up people.

I almost spit coffee on my screen when I read this.
