“If I had to do it again I would’ve hammered it.” Sports Illustrated interviewed Mark Richt this morning and ripped him a new one

Mark Richt and Mike Bobo have been doing this for 14 years now.  This is nothing new, is it ?  They recruit all these Top 10 nationally ranked Quarterbacks, and they want to throw the ball 1st.  Knowshon Moreno got 13 carries and 15 carries in the big games, and after only 2 years’ playing here, was drafted # 12 pick overall in NFL Draft.  Why were we # 65 in the nation in rushing last season ?  A trophy for everyone is the way Mark Richt coaches, which explains why the # 53 nationally ranked Quarterback Hutson Mason was playing at all.  They did the same with 5th year senior Joe Cox and 5th year senior Joe Tereshinski III.  Mark Richt now tells us Hutson Mason is better QB than # 7 QB nationally Jacob Park and left on the bench once again this game the # 8 QB nationally Brice Ramsey, exactly the same as he told us Joe Tereshinski III was better QB than # 1 QB nationally Matthew Stafford and as he told us Joe Cox was better than Zach Mettenberger.

We knew going in to the game that DC Ward would load the box for Spurrier.  We also knew we would try to pass the ball with a guy who as you can see, cannot pass the ball.  The only back-up QB Mark Richt has ever prepared was DJ Shockley, whom Mark Richt redshirted the 2001 season, causing his Dad Coach Shockley to insist Mark Richt promise him he would play every game, or he would have his son, DJ, transfer.  Other than that, there is no back-up QB ever prepared by Mark Richt.  So, why do all these top-rated Quarterbacks continue to sign here ?

72-19 the 1st half Mark Richt era 2001-2007

7-2 the 1st half Mark Richt era 2001-2007 as visitor vs teams who made AP or Coaches’ Polls those seasons

1-10 the 2nd half Mark Richt era 2008-2014 as visitor vs teams who made AP or Coaches’ Polls these seasons by stark contrast.

Mark Richt is a great guy who has assembled a staff of great recruiters and has 75 NFL Draft Picks to prove his recruiting ranking average of # 9 in the nation 2001-2014.  His recruiting class next year is perhaps his best class ever ranked # 3 nationally so far.

With all this continuing talent, it does beg the question since coaching is doing more with less, has Mark Richt lost the edge the entire 2nd half of his career ?

I love the guy, and the players do too.  The recruits do.  The newspapers and magazines do as well.  Everyone does.  He has had more than his fair share of arrests/suspensions, hasn’t he ?  He is tougher than other coaches on punishment, but seemingly not as good as other coaches at telling the recruits to obey the rules on and off the field, is he ?  Either way, it is clear that the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era has been marred by mediocrity and losing, hasn’t it ?

2009 Mark Richt could’ve started Zach Mettenberger or at least played him vs Oklahoma State in game 1, but told us Joe Cox with chronic throwing shoulder and the flu requiring a separate charter to get him to Stillwater was the better quarterback.  We lost the game and went 8-5.

2006 Mark Richt could’ve started Matthew Stafford vs the vols and Vandie but started Joe Tereshinski III instead.  We lost both games and went 9-4.

Mark Richt started freshmen quarterbacks 2010 and 2001.  We went 6-7 in 2010 and 8-4 in 2001.

2002 we went 13-1 won The SEC Championship but only other SEC team in Coaches’ Poll was # 14 Auburn 4-loss team besides # 25 Florida who was 8-5 but beat Mark Richt with Ron Zook when Mark Richt went 0-13 on 3rd down conversions.

I hear no one saying that Mark Richt or Mike Bobo are the nation’s top play callers.  Our offense is a Fullback-oriented Offense with over 200 top fullbacks available every year, yet we never recruit any of them.  Mike Bobo said this year he would not be lining up any 2-back sets and running the ball.  It did not surprise me therefore that he started this game with a floating pass poorly defended or would’ve been intercepted if the DB had just even looked at the QB once, as it was underthrown obviously.  It did not surprise me therefore that at the 4-yard line 1st and goal with 5:24 remaining in the 4th Quarter, that he did not hand the ball to the leading Heisman contender Mr. Todd Gurley II, but instead had the # 53 QB pass the ball resulting in a 2nd and 14 after the sack.  It’s what we do, isn’t it ?  Then, 2nd and 14 when we have to pass, we hand it to Mr. Todd Gurley II who went nearly 4 yards, which would’ve put it on the inch line but now it’s 3rd down and more than 10 to go with yet another pass which was tipped at the line and was a dink-down pass anyway nowhere near the marker.  The whole entire series of plays were what we’d been doing the whole game, settling for 4 field goal tries in a game their QB was out-dueling our QB once again.

South Carolina has a poor Secondary, not that we don’t too because we do after all the off-field arrests/suspensions kicked-off and transferred players – the entire Secondary.

The Game Plan was to throw vs South Carolina, even though he left # 7 QB Jacob Park and # 8 QB Brice Ramsey on the bench, and played instead the # 53 QB Hutson Mason.

Dylan Thompson out-played Hutson Mason all night long after the game was to start at 3:30 and finally ended after lightning delay at 8:30.  Dylan Thompson dominated Hutson Mason the entire game.

2005 DJ Shockley won us The SEC Championship but because he got injured during the season and Mark Richt brought in his favorite Joe Tereshinski III we ended up the # 3 SEC team in every single solitary poll.  The SEC was not down in 2005, as it was in 2002.

Now that the BCS era is done, Mark Richt’s only 2 BCS Bowl Game wins were over # 19 Hawai’i 2007 season and # 23 Florida State a 5-loss team 2002 season.  That’s it.

8 SEC teams have Won The National Championship in the Mark Richt era, yet his # 9 recruiting ranking average and his 75 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014, are the best in The SEC # 1 at both.  In fact, there is good reason to say Auburn won the NC 2004 as well at 13-0, since the BCS vacated USC.  That’s 9 SEC teams who have won or should be declared NC in the Mark Richt era with the best talent here at UGA all these 14 seasons.

Coaching is doing more with less, but around here, we do less with more, don’t we ?

$ 3.5 million dollars annually, Mark Richt has been passed by the best collegiate coaches nowadays, hasn’t he ?

Stale is the word, as Mark Richt has gone stale.

Mark Richt has won some big games.  He beat # 4 South Carolina just in 2013, and # 14 LSU; but he lost 5 games.  In 2001, he beat # 4 vols on the road at their house, as Visitor; but he’s bragged since that he knocked the lid off the Georgia Bulldogs’ football program with that win when UGA is Top 10 All-Time in Wins yet he was 8-4 that season, too, in 2001.

Going into the 2005 season, Mark Richt was 81 % Win Percentage.

He only 67 % after 2007, the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era.

We’re not doing as well now with the same top recruits he has had all along, as he did in the 1st half if his career.  We’re not as good on the road vs teams who are ranked teams these years.  We’re not as good vs teams who are ranked teams these years.  We’re not as good Won/Lost Record these years.  We were far better the 1st half of his career on the road vs teams who were ranked teams those seasons way back then.  We were far better vs teams ranked for those seasons way back then than we are now.  And, our Won/Lost Record is not even in the Top 25 the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era 2008-2014.

55-27 is a mediocre Won/Lost Record for the # 9 best talent nationally for a Top 10 All-Time Wins Program UGA.

We have a huge following.  The rumblings have been ever-increasing.  Something is amiss after 2007, the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era, isn’t it ?

How does a guy who going into the 2005 season was 81 % win percentage drop off to not even Top 25 win percentage after 2007 ?

The SEC has gotten tougher, and is a lot better conference than when Mark Richt 1st got here.  All we hear here is that Mark Richt is a great recruiter of talent.  We hear no offers for head coach anywhere from anyone.  We hear no one say he is the best play-caller.  We hear no one say he has great Game Plans, or makes great adjustments.  We hear no one say he is the best at time-out management at the end of the games.  He is not noted for his hires.  He is not noted for his strategies, but for his recruiting, arrests/suspensions and his losing.  Isn’t he ?

Especially against the top teams, and most especially on the road, Mark Richt is mediocre and losing now compared to when he 1st got here and The SEC was down, isn’t he ?

We wake up this morning the # 6 SEC team in AP and Coaches’ Polls.

I am not sure how many of those teams he can beat with Hutson Mason as his QB.  The play call might have been the right play call with a QB generally considered one of the top quarterbacks nationally, but because Mr. Todd Gurley II # 3 RB nationally wanted to get out of North Carolina where there are no good teams, he has the running backs instead with Nick Chubb # 7 RB and Sony Michel # 3 RB as well, and Isaiah McKenzie; but redshirted Jacob Park # 7 QB this season Jacob tells us all.  And # 8 QB nationally Brice Ramsey has been left on the bench too all season long and this a game against a team I told you had a great Offense and no Secondary and required us to play a QB Saturday night who could exploit their Secondary.  Mark Richt did this so he could play instead # 53 QB nationally Hutson Mason, just as he did Joe Cox and Joe Tereshinski III. A trophy for everyone.

It’s ongoing.

It’s more of the same.

Isn’t it ?

While Alabama has gone 75-9 here in The SEC after 2007, Mark Richt has gone 55-27.  Mark Richt has gone stale, hasn’t he ?

“We’re just tired of just being mediocre and going to the SEC championship game, going to the bowl game and losing.” Mr. Todd Gurley II.

Of the most recent current latest games as Visitor at the field of our Opponent who was a ranked team for these seasons now, he’s 1-10 with the 1 a game which would’ve been vacated anyway had they too beat him and that is the only game of the 11 where he ran the ball.

7-2 as Visitor vs teams ranked AP or Coaches’ for the seasons when he 1st got here in 2001, the 1st Half of the Mark Richt era.

Started out 7-2 but is only 1-10 since as Visitor vs teams ranked AP or Coaches’ Polls for the season.

Why brag about what he did a long time ago, when recently he has been mediocre, hasn’t he ?

55-27 is not even a Top 25 Won/Lost Record after 2007, yet we’re Top 10 All-Time in Wins here in our program.

His QB he chose to bail him out this season found Dylan Thompson the far better QB.  This is college football.  If you have a poor QB, you are going to lose the big games, unless you feed your top running backs.  This is therefore exactly what I expected 2014 a 15-game season for the top teams and us hoping to get to 9-4 or 9-5 if we make it to The SEC Championship Game against Alabama, Texas A & M, Auburn, or LSU.  I am not even certain we can beat one of the Mississippi schools with Hutson Mason, and have serious doubts Hutson Mason can beat Florida.

Now where pray tell are the Mark Richt Apologists ?

He’s lost 8 games to teams who were not even ranked, even with their wins over us, in either the AP or Coaches’.

2014-2015 season promises to be more of the same recently around here at 9-4 or 9-5 if we make it to The SEC Championship in a 15-game season for the top teams.

We’re not one of the top teams, and we’re not Elite.

We have Elite Recruits, and top talent but we do not use it very well, anymore, do we ?

A lot of this now has to do with having only 78 of the 119 signed scholarship recruits who with redshirt would’ve been playing this season.

Should I list them ?

Are all of these now gone from the team to blame for us losing once again to South Carolina Saturday night in Prime Time ?

Are we doing well ?

Should we present a front as if we are doing well ?

How does that make us look if we do ?

What message do we send to the players if we present ourselves as doing well ?

That this is what passes for acceptable now, and Mark Richt is the most accomplished college football coach in America when he actually is not even Top 25 at 55-27 Won/Lost Record 2008-2014 the entire 2nd half of his career here ?  This is the message you want to send to him ?  That we should present ourselves only as doing so well ?  I want a cushy job like that.  Go on the road and lose to everyone any good at 1-10 vs teams who are Top 25 AP or Coaches’ Polls since 2007.  Play everyone any good and lose all but 7 of the most recent 30 games against teams who are ranked for these seasons the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era.

It’s grown old this censoring of Bulldogs’ fans so that only how well we’re doing and will be doing is all which can be presented in public, while you mutter under your own breaths that you too hate what has been going on the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era.

Mark Richt has grown stale the 2nd half of his career here, hasn’t he ?

Well ?

Every off-season we get bad press, except for the recruiting. Every football season we get bad press like this article on Sports Illustrated certainly Premier Sports Coverage.  Isn’t this what is really happening now in this 2nd half of the Mark Richt era ?

Isn’t it ?

With all this talent.

The talent has not dropped off, has it ?

I believe I speak for all Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program fans when I say that we, like Mr. Todd Gurley II, demand more than these results with this talent for $ 3.5 million dollars annually.

Are you really satisfied right now, or want to send the message that we like Mr. Todd Gurley II, demand more ?

Should we censor those who point out that Mark Richt is not doing well ?

Are you fans of our football program, or Mark Richt ?

2013:

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/m-footbl/stats/2014-2015/uga1402.html

Our opponents’ quarterbacks are out-dueling us and out-scoring us when we play teams who are ranked for these seasons the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era, yet we have the better talent.  Right ?

The most important player on our team is not Hutson Mason.

2014 season :

# 79 on 3rd Down Conversions Hutson Mason QB of 125 teams

# 112 Passing Yards per Completion Hutson Mason QB

# 110 Passing Offense Hutson Mason QB

# 115 number of 1st Downs Hutson Mason QB

# 82 Kick-Off Return Defense

# 65 Punt Returns

# 61 Sacks Allowed

# 88 Scoring Defense

# 73 Time of Possession

# 61 Total Offense

Are we coaching our recruits well on or off the field ?

Does this look like the # 9 average nationally recruiting ranking ?

http://stats.ncaa.org/rankings/ranking_summary

Greg McGarity hiding.  Jere Morehead hiding.  The Dawgbone telling you only how great we are and going along with these Mark Richt Apologists, who are Mark Richt fans not Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program fans, as I.  These will change.  I will not be denied.  Indeed, we will not be denied and not because we dropped 8 places in the polls, but because Mr. Todd Gurley II demands more of Mark Richt and so do all of us.

Congratulations to South Carolina on the big win at their house, and best of luck to them on their great season for it is obvious and has been that your coach gets more out of less than our coach does, on and off the field.  It’s always painful to lose but I am certain that we can dream up some excuse, despite the fact that whatever South Carolina players were taunting Mr. Todd Gurley II, that he too at least deserved off-setting penalty in one of those failed drives by our offense where we settled for a field goal.

I am told by a vocal minority of loud-mouth Bulldogs’ fans that I am not a great Bulldogs’ Football fan, but I go to the game with our seasons’ tickets, go to JAX, go to the Bowl Games, and go to the Games at the Georgia Dome, graduated from UGA, and live here, rooting for only UGA to do well.

I think their defense of Mark Richt’s Record makes them a Mark Richt fan, and not a Bulldogs’ football fan for surely he does the least with the most talent of any coach in America the entire 2nd half of his career here.

He makes dumb decisions.  He runs a lax ship where the players do whatever they want to do, and then he punishes them harshly, rather than teaching them to obey the rules on and off the field.

He plays Favorites, and will continue to despite the fact that he obviously has been displeased with Hutson Mason all year long.  His angst at halftime national TV Prime Time about the QB play from Hutson Mason was palpable.

So why not give the ball then with 5:24 remaining to Mr. Todd Gurley II Mark Richt ?

 

1st and goal at the 4 with 5:24 left in the 4th quarter, never having a lead, losing 35-38 on the road for the 10th loss of the latest 11 games vs teams who are ranked for these most recent seasons as visitors, and our coaching staff calls the number of Hutson Mason.

God Almighty.

“If I had to do it again I would’ve hammered it,” Richt said of his decision to pass on the Dawgs’ first-and-goal chance Sports Illustrated Martin Rickman reports this morning.

http://www.si.com/college-football/2014/09/13/south-carolina-georgia-sec-east

 

We need a QB to throw him more than 1 pass

We need a QB to throw him more than 1 pass

We threw Mr. Todd Gurley II passes totaling a grand total of 4 yards against South Carolina.

All these blogs told you what they are allowed to tell you. How did that go for CENSORSHIP ? Well, Hutson Mason has tough tough tough game and hands Steve O. Spurrier Win # 201 to tie Vincent J. Dooley # 2 All-time Wins by SEC Coach. Mark Richt 2nd half his career 55-27 not even Top 25 Won/Lost Record.

Damian Swann made a great interception to set us up 1st and Goal from the 4-yard line and Hutson Mason blew it, followed by horrible time-out mismanagement by Mark Richt once again, and we lost.  On the road, as visitor against a team who is a Top 25 team this season once again to be now 1 win last 11 such games.  1 win.  35-38 we lost.  We lost because Dylan Thompson is a much better quarterback than Hutson Mason, who lost the game for us.  At the most crucial moment in the game, at 1st and goal from the 4 thanks to Damian Swann Hutson Mason went 3 and out when all he had to do was hand the ball to Todd Gurley II or Nick Chubb 4 times in a row.  A Field Goal is last in this world what we want.

We’re down 35-38 four minutes remaining 1st and goal from the 4, and Hutson Mason had a tough tough tough game, punctuated by his pitiful plays at the most crucial moment of the game.  Just when everyone knew we’d win, and all the South Carolina fans so sure of it, they threw garbage into that end zone : Instead Huston Mason loses the game.

Awful.

If all these blogs are censored blogs of what you can say, then read on.  Have at it.

And, so a game that was to start 5 hours’ prior would end on Prime Time for us, and we just blew it.  Snatched defeat from the jaws of Victory.

Everyone kept saying this was a must win game for Steve Spurrier’s South Carolina Gamecocks, but ladies and gentlemen, this was and you know it a must win game for Mark Richt.  The 2nd half of his career here sees us the # 23 team in the nation in won/lost record, which is no damn stat.  So Steve Spurrier is a coach Mark Richt does not have a winning record against.  And, Steve O. Spurrier ties Vince Dooley with the 2nd most wins for SEC Coach All-Time at 201.

Bulldog Bob told us that we win the game easily.  Come on Bob.  Bob Miller told you what you wanted to hear that it would be 38-24 the good guys.  ” I’ve got Georgia pulling away in the second half and beating South Carolina 38 – 24.

http://bulldawgillustrated.com/2014/09/12/bulldawg-bobs-keys-to-the-game-uga-vs-south-Carolina/

The Blawg House told you what you only want to hear that we win going away as well : “31-17″   No sir.  That’s utter nonsense.

http://www.theblawghouse.com/content/georgia-vs-south-carolina-preview-prediction

Dylan Th0mpson dominated Hutson Mason all night long.   Todd Gurley II had a great game; Sony Michel had a great game; Nick Chubb had a great game.  It was the great catch by Jay Rome for the Touchdown to pull us within 3 when we had failed again and again to get into the end zone until then. Todd Gurley II surely deserved a 15-yard penalty on the drive that was extended because he twice committed a personal foul on the play.

All these blogs telling us how great we are, and that South Carolina loses to us :

Red & Black : Can Hutson Mason exploit the South Carolina Secondary ?  Well, Red & Black surmises that South Carolina is not as good on pass rush nor in their Secondary as Clemson, thus Hutson Mason will have more time, the Red & Black tells you to your glee.  I told you he would NOT.

http://www.redandblack.com/sports/burning-questions-can-hutson-mason-exploit-the-south-carolina-secondary/article_37c16dbe-3a9c-11e4-b090-001a4bcf6878.html

Georgia has all the advantages every facet of the game, you were told.  I told you our Quarterback is one of the weakest quarterbacks in the nation, ranked # 53 nationally when he came here, and # 107 in the nation before South Carolina.  South Carolina’s quarterback ran rings around Hutson Mason.  Didn’t he ?

Edge at Quarterback : Slight Edge Georgia’s Hutson Mason you were told.  I told you Hutson Mason is going to be the worst quarterback on the field every game all year long.

http://www.redandblack.com/sports/edges-georgia-football-holds-slight-edge-over-south-carolina-in/article_08f53682-3a1f-11e4-9671-0017a43b2370.html

If this is where I am supposed to say our Excuse for This Latest Loss is that Todd Gurley II should not have had his 54-yard TD run called back, you can recall instead that he should have had two different unsportsmanlike penalties on the drive thereafter to extend that drive when instead the Zebras called unsportsmanlike penalty on South Carolina for God’s Sake.

Oh, the field goal hooked left between the uprights after it passed the goal posts.  That’s how close we were.  Bullshit.  We had this game.  It was our game.  We drop to # 15 and South Carolina jumps us to # 12.

Just great.

Does anyone out there really think that Dylan Thompson did not have a far superior game tonight than Hutson Mason did for us ?

Well, do you ?

Andrew Hall, Dude You’re Crazy says only Ashley knew South Carolina wins.

http://dudeyoucrazy.net/2014/09/12/sec-predictions-week-3/

That’s not true.  I told you so Andrew Hall.

Repeatedly, I told you this is what we do nowadays the 2nd Half of the Mark Richt Era.

55-27 the 2nd Half Mark Richt Era Won/Lost Record, not even Top 25.

Why don’t you tell me again what he did when he 1st got here ?

Because he sure as hell has been lousy coaching the 2nd Half of his Career here.  Hasn’t he ?

55-27, you got some snide Excuse for this ?

Such total bullshit.  And, this folks is what you’re allowed to read.  27-19 pre-game.  Excuse me, that’s hogwash the 2nd Half Mark Richt era, now, isn’t it ?

 

Bluto, the bastion of blog titles, and defender of the faith says I am a troll because this has gotten old to me.  Old Bluto.  Some call him Senator.  Excuse me, the whole damn freakin’ movie, he was Bluto.  The credits at the end say he will LATER BECOME Senator.  I will be dipped in shit if that numb nuts with those blog titles all come-ons to come read what he has to say when he really doesn’t say shit ever, just copy someone’s blog URL Link and say here this guy just said this, what you think – is ever going to be Senator of anything.

 

Senator.

 

Bullshit, Bluto : ”  The one thing I’m sure about is that Spurrier knows he can’t let his team get down by two scores.  He’ll do what he can to keep that from happening.”

Oh Brilliant one, what the freaking hell does this one known fact by you look like now, nimrod ?

 

Well, Bluto ?  Steve O. Spurrier was NEVER down your freaking two scores.  We were.  Where do you discuss that, Bluto ?  Idgit.

Seth Emerson http://www.Macon.com who used to have the now South Carolina beat writer : Georgia – all we have to do is just only show-up Seth Emerson tells us.

” Quarterback Hutson Mason was clearly irked by all the questions about whether he can carry the offense if needed, after he had a quiet game against Clemson. Mason wasn’t really needed then, but the message around Georgia’s offense the past two weeks is that won’t be the case again.”

“Georgia has the edge, but still has to show up”  Excuse me Seth Emerson, sir ?  Hutson Mason personally by himself lost the game for us.

Didn’t he ?

Sports Illustrated also a URL Link provided to you by those who want to CENSOR.

” Teams are going to understand that Todd is our biggest weapon. We would’ve liked to throw the ball a little bit better against Clemson, but I felt like we were pretty balanced and did a good job when we did throw it. When we get those one-on-one opportunities against South Carolina, we’ve got to take advantage of them. If we don’t, we may still be able to find a way to win, but I don’t really like our chances if we can’t throw the ball effectively,” Hutson Mason said before the game.

38-17 Ryan McLarty says that which is only allowed to be said pre-game on Index.com.

” I mean sure this could end up being “same ole Georgia” when the season is all said and done, but I just don’t see it.”  I do not see how you could not see it ?  5 years and this is not what you expected from Hutson Mason ?  It sure as hell is to me, Mr. Ryan McLarty sir.

Marc Weizer.  Is that like a Bud Weizer ?  Marc Weizer is allowed to blog on that Georgia will win.

“Georgia has the edge and here’s why”

http://dogbytesonline.com/bulldogs-have-the-edge-over-the-gamecocks-and-heres-why-86582/

This is all that passes for Bulldogs’ Blogs anymore.  No one allowed to say that which we all know that Mark Richt has seen the 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era be quite mediocre to quote Todd Gurley II.  Losing and Mediocre.  And, horrible Bulldogs’ Blogs what tell you what you want to hear and who would prefer to CENSOR all else, so you NEVER HEAR IT.

 

The truth that is, that we’re not even Top 25 the entire 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era.

Not enough that Online Athens has URL Link but 2 with Marc Weizer dot com as well a 2nd URL Link to the bullshit that passes for Bulldogs’ Blogs anymore.

Oh, let’s CENSOR everyone from saying that which in the dark alone, you admit to yourself.

Hutson Mason ?

Really ?  With Jacob Park and Brice Ramsey on the team, Hutson Mason is our Best Quarterback Mark Richt tells you.

 

Really ?

 

You buying that ?

You’re the only 1 who is.

No one who watched this game tonight.

There is not a Quarterback on our team who could’ve lost this game tonight except for Hutson Mason.  Everyone gets a trophy on our Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Teams anymore around here, and none of you give a rat’s ass as long as you can CENSOR anyone from saying it aloud, although you’ve muttered it yourself repeatedly for years and years now.

Congratulations to the Gamecocks and your fans.  Best of luck on your great season and Coaching.  You certainly decided on the better quarterback to play tonight, didn’t you ?

The rest of you can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, because I am FED UP with it.  All the suspensions, missing kicked-off players, and LOSSES this 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era.

Enter your excuses below please, ok ?no-bananas

South Carolina not at all like Clemson has an Offense no Defense. Ohio State cupcake playing cupcakes in the continuing Big 10 horrible conference. Atlanta college football town. Pat Haden resigns Committee.

South Carolina has a good Offense, and we’ve not played one of those yet.  Of course, they were exposed by Texas A & M with a great quarterback Kenny Hill throwing the football; but, hey South Carolina has done that every year multiple times losing to teams in fashions no one could ever understand, and then they go out and win all the rest of their games in convincing manners.

The vast majority of The Bulldogs’ fans know we have no quarterback we’ve played yet.  We have 2 on the team, and neither has taken a snap.  Jacob Park says Mark Richt is redshirting him this season and Brice Ramsey Mark Richt does not want to give a leg-up in the race for QB next year by preparing him this year, so we did not even see him come in up by twice Clemson’s score and then some.  Everyone else, yes.  Brice Ramsey no.  We’ve seen this scenario play itself out many times in Mark Richt’s 14 seasons to-date with more of them coming-up.  It’s what Mark Richt does.  Among other things.

I believe Jacob Park to be the heir-apparent.  If Brice Ramsey goes out and shows up Hutson Mason, which he could do in 1 single series, then everyone would be clamoring for Brice Ramsey more, the comparisons would be inevitable, and Mark Richt would have much pressure all season, all off-season, and all next season about a Quarterback Controversy.  You see, Quarterback controversies are bad, he has stated repeatedly, and to be avoided at all costs he says.

I do not hold with that.

Especially when our own quarterback

is handed the job no questions asked.

And, no competition allowed for obvious reasons.

East Carolina is not a good football team who starts their year about # 50 in everything but passing yards, which is understandable playing Central North Carolina and South Carolina.  What isn’t understandable is that they’re # 50 at everything else, given the level of teams they’ve played.  Virginia Tech has a horrible offense and is not that good defensively, and North Carolina is not good, yet both of these teams beat East Carolina in their next 2 games to be 1-3 and then all the cupcakes on their schedule.

Still there are lessons to be learned on our week off watching South Carolina tonight.  That is if you know what you’re watching, which I wonder sometimes with the vocal minority of our own fans with their heads buried in the sand like that the measure of any team’s fans.  No.  No sir it is not.  South Carolina is a team with a good offense, and poor defense susceptible to the pass, and we have Hutson Mason.  What total bullshit that is.  We’re going to need to go the length of the field down by 4.  What’s Hutson Mason going to do ?  Hand it to Todd Gurley II every play ?  Throw 4-yard floating passes ?  There are few UGA fans who think Hutson Mason is anything but a stop-gap for the season, and everyone recognizes now he has no arm.  I’ve said it for 5 years.  I say it again.

When you have a week off like this, you come to really recognize what a college football town Atlanta is with all the flags on all the vehicles for Auburn, vols, Alabama, Florida, Clemson, LSU, South Carolina, Georgie tek, Georgia, Georgia Southern University, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Ohio State, and Southern California flags whose AD must be removed from the Selection Committee Pat Haden what a dumbass who knows how to read.

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2014/09/07/emotions-of-usc-football-ad-pat-hayden-proves-he-needs-to-resign-from-playoff-committee/

The coach cannot argue a correct ruling in the 1st place in a game they won anyway over a horrid Offense Stanford for fear of a 2nd personal foul 30-yard penalty.  So, text up to AD in booth who are not to be having ANY communique with ANYONE on the field of ANY kind whatsoever, and down trots Pat Haden AD to argue the call and admits instantly in his own defense (open mouth switch feet) that hey he was texted to come down and argue the call and runs onto the damn field in the Pac-12 joke conference bragging every year in the Rose Bowl what they did to the Big 10.  Give me a freaking break !

When Lou Holtz tells you he’s never seen anything like that before, you know it’s a serious infraction.  When everyone else on ESPN tells you it’s OK, that Pat Haden is not in deep hot water, you know he is.  This is what I heard this off-day on ESPN myself.  Did you hear this too ?  The 1st criterion for the Selection Committee is that they must have Integrity.  The entire Committee is now under scrutiny before it even starts its weekly new poll.  All the polls we have are not good enough.  Now, we must have their poll and many standing AD are on the committee, among them absolute ass Pat Haden.  If you have never been around someone like that, I have.  They have blind spots.  Able to read, but dumbasses from the word frigin’ go.

Pat Haden, the color commentator for Notre Dame football, says crap on his telecasts all the time.  You would not believe the crudola that passes for truth on the telecasts.  Notre Dame does this, Notre Dame does that, phrased to make Notre Dame great when they are not, have not and will not be and Pat Haden damn well knows it.

Pat Haden = Chuck Dowdle.

Cecil Rhodes stipulated moral character in his Will for his scholarship’s criteria.

http://www.smh.com.au/national/famed-scholarship-divides-opinion-20111023-1meak.html

Bill Clinton, Kris Kristofferson and now Pat Haden – all Rhodes’ Scholars.

This does not give Bill Clinton the right to do what he did in the Oval Office and his wife stand by him in the aftermath, nor Kris Kristofferson the way he threw his life away on serious drug abuse and now Pat Haden joins the list standing AD Selection Committee Member for 3 years does what the NFL has come down on hard, and he thinks he like Bill and Kris, he too can get away with it.  Good Luck with that Pat Haden for you sir have no moral character – like anyone who tells everyone else what they should do, not satisfied with screwing up their own life.  Real discussion is that which embraces learning from others, not acting obsequious.

Mark Richt is not God, and anyone suggesting improvement of same, is not the enemy you pieces of crap who Troll saying someone else is a Troll.

A Troll is someone who says something intended to inflame, not their real opinion.  This is best exemplified by anyone wanting to censor any opinion not shared by themselves in their myopic little pea brain.

If you have something to say : say it.  Don’t sit there hiding acting like it sacrilegious to suggest improvement on our own damned football team.  You ignore anyway, what they themselves say to you about the very points of poor passing, or any other point such as failures on 3rd downs.

http://people.howstuffworks.com/13-famous-rhodes-scholars.htm#page=9

I am not obsequious and you are.

Condoleezza Rice needs to have Pat Haden removed from the Committee for conduct unbecoming on national TV.  BCS stripped BCS MNC Title from Southern California who promptly hired Lame Kitten from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville vols’ to fix all that mess at Southern California, but Condoleezza Rice cannot rescind before it starts this outcast Pat Haden ?  Sure she can.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2013/10/16/meet-the-faces-behind-the-college-football-playoff-selection-committee/2993911/

 

Stanford has no Offense, like Clemson.  Pat Haden beating no Offense Stanford means nothing to me, like his Rhodes’ Scholarship he demonstrates moral character in this fashion his entire life for all to see just like Bill Clinton and just like Kris Kristofferson.  Big 10 sucks and has played nothing but sucky football for a long damn time now.  Oregon beating Michigan State means nothing except that the Big 10 is a horrid conference.  Power 5 Conferences my ass.

There are so many tags of so many schools here in Atlanta such that the world has never seen.  And, what have we all learned this season ?  The SEC is kicking ass.  The Pac-12 thinks they’re great for beating up on cupcake conference Big 10 with 14 teams.  My God that conference add cupcakes to a conference of cupcakes and now has 14 teams.  Back when they were the Big 9, they could count.  Since then, they prove that they cannot count.  My SAT scores and grades prove I can.  And, I remember.  This is not a 1 year phenomenon for the Big 14.

Maryland, they add Maryland to the Big 10.  Wow !  That will really fix the Big 10.  They go out and beat hapless South Florida Junior College by 1 TD and that the best the Big 14 has to offer-up as proof of greatness ?  Yes.  Uh, yes.  Yes, it is.  Maryland plays Ohio State and Michigan State both this season. Maryland makes their wins over Maryland good wins ? No.  Uh, no.  No, they do not.

Central Michigan Chippewas Junior College beat Big 10 Purdue, who too, does not have a QB they play either who can throw the damn ball more than 4 yards. Big 10  Michigan State blistered for all to see by Oregon by twice their score a bloody Blow-Out of Biblical Proportions.  Oregon scoring 48 on Michigan State does not make Oregon great, but Big 10 Michigan State made the entire Big 10 look like shit. Northern Illinois Junior College of the MAC conference for God’s Sake beats Big 10 Northwestern by more than a TD.  Michigan, the real Big 10 Michigan (their game with Ohio State so great Pat Haden tells us), skunked by 31 to nothing.  It gets worse for the Big 10.  Just wait. Virginia Tech who has no offense 35, Ohio State 21.

http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/boxscore?gameId=400547826&confId=5

That too does not make Virginia Tech great, but instead makes the Big 10 and Ohio State once again to look silly.  This the same Big 10 Ohio State who has played The SEC 12 times in Bowl Games and not won once.

McNeese State of the Southland Conference played Big 10 Nebraska.  20 seconds to go Nebraska finally runs loose and scores to beat McNeese State.  My God !

Rutgers now Big 10 oh wow beats 0-2 in the MEAC Conference Howard 38-25.  How bad is the Big 10 ?  That’s a rhetorical question.  Howard being beat by the Akron Zips 41 to nothing last week.

And, so South Carolina whose only other test all season long is Auburn who were flukes last season, has no Defense.  That is established.  But, we cannot bring ourselves to play to their weakness passing into that porous defense.  This because Obsequious Ones, we don’t want you to see Brice Ramsey.  It’s Jacob Park’s job next year, you see ?  We with all these 9 teams to beat this season, unlike South Carolina and unlike FSU again too.

Well, at least the Big 10 is exposed.  There’s that on our week off.  You never know what a college football town this is, until we have a week off.  Georgia Southern University plays Georgie tek next week.  When they too pass Georgie tek, that is when the serious discussion of what a dismal mess Georgie tek is in.

 

Official WebPages Todd Gurley II for Heisman thanks to Taylor Maxey – Starting FB walk-on North Oconee

Todd Gurley II finds Taylor Maxey, Starting Fullback # 47, in the middle of the wedge, and Taylor Maxey Scholar leads the way earning his football scholarship.  It’s been a long road for Taylor Maxey, injured twice at North Oconee.  Todd Gurley II never out-runs Cordrea Tankersley # 25 Clemson who runs 40-yard dash time 4.49 the # 25 best athlete nationally 2012 without the block by Taylor Maxey who is Honor Roll, Dean’s List and magna cum laude.  I know a little about these myself. That was a cheesy play by Cordrea Tankersley after Todd Gurley II slowed down 5 yards deep in the end zone to fall sheepishly, having to be shed by Todd Gurley II as water off the back of a duck.

This is only the latest Todd Gurley II 100-yard kickoff return.

Can he make it ?

Yes, he can !

1 of the 22 Starters against Clemson, Taylor Maxey did not get a carry.  It isn’t what he does.  He hits people.  Ok, he hits people hard, which is why we line him up in the middle of the wedge.

https://uga.rivals.com/cviewplayer.asp?Player=441322

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/taylor_maxey_767347.html

Todd Gurley II juked, to bend in a supple way – dancing, and was off to the races and no one touched him until he was end in the zone.

Todd Gurley II has run a 4.42 in 40-yard dash, but 100 meters is really his distance.  At 6′ 1″ and 232 lbs., he is the # 18 pick in the 1st Round NFL Draft after this season.  1st running back because of his kickoff returns.

His pass blocking skills, and his pass catching, along with his consensus All-America status might well move him up higher than # 18 pick.

They all say he is Marshawn Lynch.

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=123268&draftyear=2016&genpos=RB

Marshawn Lynch will never catch as many passes as Todd Gurley II.

His has his Super Bowl though.

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=123268&draftyear=2016&genpos=RB

He is considerably lighter and not as long as Todd Gurley II, and he went to California before his 7,500 NFL rushing yards.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshawn_Lynch

He also has 23 Fumbles after being the # 12 Pick in the 2007 Draft.

http://www.nfl.com/player/marshawnlynch/2495663/profile

I am not feeling this Marshawn Lynch comparison.  Or, Jim Brown – who did have a good Hollywood career.  There’s that, too, Todd Gurley II can aspire to.

http://georgia.scout.com/story/1441591-maxey-saw-opportunity-at-fullback?s=135

Todd Gurley II told Mark Richt he did not have a good game Saturday night.

I am more than a little confused what we’re comparing Todd Gurley II to these others on.  His Hollywood fame ?  His NFL career after the season ?  Everything ?  Be specific, for I see the Heisman Trophy Todd Gurley II, quiet, reserved, fiercely competitive, already named his 1st son, intense cheerleader for his teammates, and a really good guy.

http://bulldawgillustrated.com/2014/09/04/tarkenton-right-gurley/

And, where does this Anthony Dorsett come from ?  He’s an asshole.  I shall never forget our bowl game, and we got there and they are all wearing these TD buttons, and he does his interview telling everyone he is not TD, but Anthony Dorsett.  Do you remember the TD buttons they all had on at the bowl game ?  Do you ?  Excuse me Mr. personality.  We have to vote on Todd Gurley II as Anthony Dorsett ?  God Almighty Above.  Kiss my grits : he’s TD from what I saw of his fans at the game.  Were you there ?

Herschel Walker ?  Just what did you intend we compare Todd Gurley II to Herschel Walker based on ?  I see no such instructions.  Both are quiet.  Todd Gurley II might have a better NFL career.  He’ll be picked higher.  He wasn’t the focus for 3 years here that Herschel Walker was.  He will not have the number of carries Herschel Walker did.  But, maybe of all the folks listed.

I saw Fran Tarkenton play between the hedges.  Dad’s seasons’ tickets, too.  The anticipation of going to the games on our campus and seeing how the campus has been made so much more beautiful, and the Fall, knowing the air was about to be filled with balls.  So exciting.  It was not done.  I remember all that.

Well, I remember all that.

Mark Richt era has been marked with Quarterback centric offense, so unlike Fran Tarkenton’s era here or anywhere at that time.  Herschel Walker came to campus as the # 1 player nationally, and Todd Gurley II came in quietly the # 5 running back behind his own teammate whom we still have not used properly out in spaces as so many plays were designed to do just that Saturday night, but not Keith Marshall who did recover a fumble on special teams to have it called back.  I sure would feel better about it, if we could hit him with more than 1 pass.  That’s criminal.

We need a QB to throw him more than 1 pass

We need a QB to throw him more than 1 pass

No question have to throw the ball better; we’ve got to get better throwing the ball downfield; had guys didn’t pull trigger; have to stand in there cut it loose; not sharp; Kenny Hill & Hutson Mason not similar; neither is UGA & Texas A&M; huge lead & no Brice Ramsey

https://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/87676/richt-tries-to-slow-georgia-hype?ex_cid=espnapi_public

“There’s no question that we’re going to have to throw the ball better than we did this last game to continue to have success throughout the season.” Mark Richt said this on his radio show Monday night this week.

“I expect a big improvement this week because we’ve got to get better at throwing the ball downfield,” offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said.  “A couple of times we had a couple of guys and we didn’t pull the trigger,” Bobo said “you’ve got to stand in there and cut it loose.”

http://onlineathens.com/sports/college-sports/2014-09-02/uga-oc-bobo-wants-improved-downfield-passing

I said all along that Clemson would lose to us and to Florida State to start the season, could then get back to all these 13 ACC teams who end the season 7-6 and that somehow compares to The 8 SEC ranked teams, in fact makes them better Jimbo Fisher brags, and would be UnRanked, I said.  I said we’d beat them by 16 points, and Las Vegas said we’d beat them by more than a Touchdown.  I further stated Clemson has no offense.

We played a weird game plan Saturday night for all to see prior to the rain.  We had the same game plan Clemson’s Dabo had : Keep the damn ball away from Todd Gurley II.

5 touches 1st half.  Criminal.  No wonder we had Clemson feeling they would win again.  When we face-off against South Carolina, who was routed by Texas A & M, Clemson will not be ranked.  Who did Clemson beat last year ?  An UnRanked 8-5 UGA team.  ACC Schedules are all cupcake schedules, despite the bullshit that 7-6 ACC teams make them better than 60 % of The SEC teams being ranked teams.

And, so now we move on to South Carolina.  This is a team who was destroyed by a QB who can throw the ball.  Hutson Mason is not that guy.

Is he ?

Kenny Hill ?

Let’s get our heads screwed on straight, and bring in a QB who can throw the damn football.

Favoritism is all we have in Brice Ramsey not being brought in the last series up twice their score and then some.  That’s bullshit Mark Richt.  And, worse that you bragged that prior to that series, you could send in Isaiah McKenzie a true freshman to take that punt, the 10th punt of the night by the way.  You could afford to do that, so what is the damned excuse you could not bring in Brice Ramsey, Mark Richt ?

Read the comments :

(1) There is no question we have to throw the ball better to have success.

(2) We’ve got to get better throwing the ball downfield.

(3) We had guys and we did not pull the trigger.

(4) You have to stand in there and cut it loose.

(5) We had a huge lead so I could bring in Isaiah McKenzie to field that punt.

(6) With that huge lead, I could not send in Brice Ramsey for the final series, even to hand-off.

14 seasons, and we’ve FAILED to prepare a Back-Up Quarterback except for DJ Shockley, whose dad was promised by Mark Richt that if DJ accepted the redshirt, then, DJ would play every game.

Other than that, Mark Richt has not prepared ANY back-up Quarterback.

We played a far easier opponent opening game than the games coming up.  They had no offense.  They played the wrong Quarterback, too.

They were on the road at our house, and we affected the ballgame on 3rd Downs pumping up the noise and causing them to be discombobulated the entire 2nd half.  We were into it.

Jeremy Pruitt :

“The way the game goes, a lot of it is about third down and getting off the field on third down and in the first half we didn’t get off the field on third down, so it extended drives. The second half we did. I would say that was the biggest thing. But if you look at the third downs in the second half, on first and second down we put them in some little longer yardages. In the first half there were several third and ones and third and twos.”

“I think there are a lot of guys that deserve a chance to play on our football team. Some of it has to do with it’s not clear-cut who the best guys are. You know, we said when fall camp started if we feel like we’ve got 11 guys that deserve to play, we’ll play 11; if we’ve got 18, we’ll play 18. I don’t know how many we played the other night but we played the ones we felt like were ready to play.”

“If they were ready I would’ve played them. … They’ve been hurt some in fall camp, and some guys played that weren’t ready to play. You can say that, too. But those guys are working hard…We’ve got a lot of younger guys and we moved some folks around from spring to fall. Then you have injuries in fall camp. You’ve got to make decisions and see in practice. We’re practicing guys in different spots, just trying to find the right combinations.  Now is he always right? No. Should he be playing as a true freshman? Probably not. But right now he’s one of our better players and we’ve just got to keep coaching him up and he’s got to keep working hard every day to get better.  Basically all we’ve done is we’ve guaranteed that we can go 1-11. That’s all we’ve done.”

http://ugasports.blog.ajc.com/2014/09/03/ugas-pruitt-expectations-are-to-dominate-our-opponents-every-week/

The Defensive Coordinator can say these statements, but the Offensive Coordinator and Head Coach cannot bring themselves to bring in our back-up Quarterbacks to prepare them.

South Carolina was vulnerable to the damn pass, Bluto.  We have to be able to do what the head coach and what the offensive coordinator said we did not do, and in fact have not done in 5 years’ time now and counting.  It’s being results oriented over what South Carolina game time will be an UnRanked Clemson team when South Carolina is vulnerable to the a QB getting the damned football downfield.

There is nothing similar between Texas A & M and UGA, dumbass.

http://dawgs.fanternity.com/Blogs/is-it-a-talent-issue-at-south-carolina-2472.html#.VAlgiTqBGno

Getting wide receivers back from suspension is not going to help a QB who has not in 5 years’ time gotten the ball downfield.

http://ugasports.blog.ajc.com/2014/09/01/rewind-return-of-the-toss-sweep-kick-starts-georgias-season/

Hutson Mason : “We’ve gotta be able to stretch the field more.  We do have to do a better job in the pass game.  We can’t be naive,” Hutson Mason said. “I’m sure South Carolina when they get to prepping for us is gonna think, ‘Load the box.’ I hope they do. We’re gonna throw it. And I hope we throw it the first play of the game.”

Hutson Mason is no Fran Tarkenton.

Mark Richt told former vol and 30-year reporter Paul Finebaum : “When you turn on the film, you see the flaws. We know there are issues. We know there are certain things we got away with and if we don’t get them right we’re not going to get away with them in another game. Someone is going to make us pay.”

“We’ll get better at throwing and catching. We weren’t as sharp as I had hoped,” Mark Richt said.

Georgia’s RB Todd Gurley II and UCLA’s LB Eric Kendricks Named Walter Camp National FBS Players of the Week. Herschel Walker only Dawg to win Walter Camp POY Award.

Todd Gurley II scored 3 rushing TD, had 1 catch, amassed 198 rushing yards on 15 carries, scored a TD on his 2nd 100-yard TD kick-off return by Todd Gurley II, and twice shoved Hutson Mason into the End Zone when he was stopped and beat # 16 AP Poll and # 16 USA Today Coaches’ Amway Poll Clemson, who ended last season # 9, and who was said to have a great Defense.

Herschel Walker is the only Georgia Bulldog to ever win the Walter Camp National Player of the Year Award.

There have been 16 Georgia Bulldogs named Walter Camp All-America, the most recent of which is Jarvis Jones who 3 times won Walter Camp National FBS Player of the Week.  Other Walter Camp All-America players for Georgia besides Jarvis Jones LB are Drew Butler P, Max Jean-Gilles OL, Greg Blue S, Thomas Davis S, Jon Stinchcomb OL, Joel Parrish OL, Randy Johnson OL, Royce Smith OL, Jake Scott S, Bill Stanfill DT, Edgar Chandler OL, Frank Sinkwich HB, Tom A.

There were no Walter Camp All-America players named from Georgia last season, on either the 1st or 2nd team.

NCAA FBS head coaches make up a group including also Sports’ Information Directors who name the Award.

Some of the previous Walter Camp Player of the Year Award are Herschel Walker, Pat Sullivan, Johnny Rodgers, Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders, Cam Newton, Charlie Ward, and Danny Wuerffel.  Todd Gurley II would be Mark Richt’s 3rd Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and Georgia’s 2nd, if Todd Gurley II can keep it up.

He will be a marked man.

Opponents will not kick-off to him, and they will spy on him.

Fairly amazing again that when we returned from Athens, ESPN was running a spot every 15 minutes all day Sunday about the 4 best Performances of the Day, all against Cupcakes, and Todd Gurley II was not even included in the 4 anyone in the nation could even vote on.

Bullshit.  Pure unadulterated Bullshit.

Todd Gurley II was given the nod over Kenny Hill Texas A&M.

The Walter Camp Foundation’s prestigious Awards are carefully measured by the head coaches and the sports’ information directors to insure moral fiber.

Todd Gurley II is of fine moral fiber from Tarboro North Carolina, where they do not have a football team and have not had a football team.  Many of our top recruits come from both North and South Carolina.  He is a Business Major at The University of Georgia, as I.

He is 6′ 1″ and 226 lbs of all muscle.

He was the North Carolina High School Player of the Year 2011, and is only 20 years’ of age.

He is an accomplished receiver with 54 catches already now, and has played here already as many years as Knowshon Moreno.  This is his final season with us. He is our Captain.  He now has over 2,500 yards rushing.

He averages over 6 yards per carry and over 10 yards per catch.

Perhaps the nation’s most feared kick-off returner, he leads the cheers on the sidelines.  Everyone at the game Saturday noticed him on the sidelines, and how not only all the other players came over to congratulate him every one of his plays, but how he was the 1st to lead the cheers for his teammates.

When he came here, he was very quiet.  Time has not changed him much.  While there were accolades heaped upon Keith Marshall, there were low rumblings of the awesomeness of Todd Gurley II.  No one calls him Todd Gurley II, only I.

When Hutson Mason was struggling Saturday to throw completions of 4 yards, he wanted the ball.  When Hutson Mason struggled against Georgie tek to fall behind 20 to nothing, he had every touch in both over-times and scored 4 consecutive touchdowns, our only 4 of the game to beat Georgie tek.

He ran 10.7 seconds in the 100 meter dash, and competed # 15 in the World Youth Championships in France. He is named for his father, Todd Gerome Gurley.

He was given a scholarship offer as the # 5 best running back in the nation from Clemson, North Carolina University, North Carolina State University, Virginia Tech, Georgie tek and Auburn.  SEC schools were slow on the uptake up in North Carolina and he wanted to pry his trade here, as one of the nation’s best pass blockers.

His parents are proud of him.  His dad lives in Baltimore, Maryland – not far from Washington, D.C.

He will name his son the III.  They put that on the back of Joe Tereshinski III, but refused until last season to put II on Todd Gurley II’s Jersey.
