Cost of the insurance for Ashley Furniture, Aggies’ sponsors, $ 150 thousand.
Benefit of the promotion, one million in August sales the best month in 8 years’ in business.
Picked to LOSE by 10 and a half points, instead they beat the lamecocks by 24.
The insurance company thought they could go with the odds, even though this the 1st game of the season for both teams, when both teams are ranked in the polls.
Insurance companies, boobs of college football Las Vegas odds, obviously do not know that Las Vegas puts lines on bets so as to insure the MOST BETS, not what they think the score will be.
The cost of the million dollars in furniture is $ 500,000, and the cost of the insurance is $ 150,000.
The profit from the sales is $ 500,000 less the cost of the insurance, so Ashely Furniture pocketed a third of a million in profits in August alone. If they did that all year long, Ashley Furniture would pocket $ 4.2 million in profits annually.
Kenneth Wade Hill Senior pitched in 2 games for the Cleveland Indians in the World Series Championship by the Atlanta Braves 1995, once as the losing starter and once in relief, both games of which the Braves won. The year before in 1994 for Montreal Expos Ken Hill went 16-5 with a 3.32 ERA. 14 seasons Ken Hill pitched for 7 different teams with a 117-109 record and 4.06 ERA. Standing 6′ 4″, Ken Hill is long.
Kenny Hill is considerably shorter at 6′ 1″ and was rated the # 4 Dual-Threat QB in the nation and 4-Star by both Scout.com and Rivals. LSU was considering Kenny Hill. Texas A & M was his best offer. He threw for 511 yards on 44 of 60 over 73 % completion percentage and no interceptions, 3 TD passes. He also ripped off nifty run ability. Ole Miss throttled Boise State who has not fared as well against big-boy competition nowadays and has fallen-off like some others have in the Peach Classic, while Vandie dropped their game.
But, the story of Opening Night is Kenny Hill of West Palm Beach Florida. Ken still wants him to be a pitcher for Texas A & M next Spring too. But, Kenny Hill won the State Championship in High School and is an accomplished Quarterback, although at 210 lbs carries enough weight, but just isn’t tall enough.
Far and wide, Texas A & M was said to have no chance against South Carolina; but damn that’s a program who has it going on since joining The SEC. They have done everything I ever said they would recruiting players in that rich state to play in The SEC. I knew that would be a boom for them, and frankly, they’ve out-recruited even Mark Richt again for 2015 as well. This is a program who goes on the road and with a chip on their shoulders out to prove they aren’t a 1-trick pony, Kevin Sumlin their coach said afterwards on the Inaugural SEC Network Broadcast with Brent Musburger.
Kevin Sumlin, rumored to Texas and to Southern California, has been courted by NFL, and currently is making $ 3.1 million 12 % less than our own Mark Richt when Kevin Sumlin signed a 6-year extension with Texas A & M. Kevin was Starting Linebacker his entire playing career and coached under Bob Stoops as Offensive Coordinator and several years as Assistant Head Coach under R.C. Slocum there. He’s 21-6 for an impressive 78 % Win Percentage because he named Johnny Football his Starting QB and because he named Kenny Hill his replacement, and his recruiting prowess is only starting. Thought to have lost too much talent, he’s reloaded ! 511 yards passing tonight by Kenny Hill is the All-Time Texas A & M Record.
Mark Richt was once this good, and even better. Kevin Sumlin is now. His teams have been ranked 4 years in a row now. He has the nation’s # 2 best recruiting class 2015 behind only Alabama with Mark Richt’s most impressive recruiting class ever here 2015 at # 3.
But, this night belongs to Kenny Hill and to Steve Spurrier who is quite candid about getting their butts beat, Kevin Sumlin hanging 52 on South Carolina, who never was in the game, even though Kevin Sumlin called off the dogs.
Hutson Mason ? Is he Kenny Hill ? (Brice Ramsey # 8 QB or redshirting Jacob Park # 7 QB ?) South Carolina’s secondary ? Are they our secondary ? Kick-Off capabilities proved each kicked-off to the back of the end zone, something we seem wholly incapable of doing and putting so much pressure on our Special Teams.
The 4th Quarter no sooner started than the fans in Columbia left and went home.
At that point, Ole Miss’s defense had given up but 3 points and their special teams were led by Melbourne Victoria Australia’s Will Gleeson punter who pinned Boise State deep and punted one for over 70 yards from the line of scrimmage, while Ole Miss’s QB Bo Wallace looked like crap throwing 4 first half interceptions to see their defense, led by Robert Nkemdiche, give up but 3 points. Perhaps you recall Robert Nkemdiche whom LSU, Auburn, Georgia, Oregon, South Carolina and Alabama also offered Scholarships to, the # 1 player in the state of Georgia 2012 ? Now, he is 1st Team All-SEC Defensive End and a beast among boys. Just thought you’d like these updates.
And, so once again the football world likes the system Kevin Sumlin has in his hurry-up Offense and the players therein. Shocking.
14 of 19 on 3rd Down and 4th Down Conversions, Kenny Hill was against once stout defense South Carolina. Great googly moogly ! Kenny Hill is considered the better quarterback than Marietta’s Anthony Jennings, the LSU QB.
All Credit to Kenny Hill, 1-0 as Starting QB and to Kevin Sumlin, future NFL Head Coach, since Texas A & M doesn’t want to pay him. Why don’t we hear about the NFL wanting Mark Richt, whom we pay more than Kevin Sumlin ?
South Carolina, who has never won anything ever in football, is in last place in The SEC East.
Dawgs, a prohibitive favorite over Clemson who has no offense, faces-off against South Carolina after our game tomorrow. South Carolina is back to the drawing board after the shellacking of Biblical Proportions considered by most to be the 2nd worse loss in the history of The SEC. South Carolina manages to do this every year. So does Kevin Sumlin.
After these ratings, let’s see if The SEC Network can figure out we want to watch LIVE games ? Now, go find the top game in some other sport and show it LIVE for God’s Sake you fools !
For my money, I’d say the Inaugural SEC Network Telecast is Kenny Hill. Congratulations Kenny and Ken !
Damn South Carolina. Just damn. Kenny Hill made you look silly. Texas A & M proved they belonged in The SEC in their 1st Home Game. Their crowd was bloody awesome tonight, and put on one of the best post-game celebrations, ever.
Oh, give me a break ! Every off-season we search high and low for someone, anyone – no matter how poorly they’ve ever done at predicting, ESPN the worst of the lot, and brag locally about how great we are.
Then, with the reality of whom it is we’d have to beat totally out of our minds, we all hit the AJ-C blogs to brag away on the staff and players’ efforts – despite the facts that we’ve lost 5 or 4 games on the average the current latest 6 seasons now and counting with more of the same 2014, and all the off-field arrests/suspensions ongoing as well.
1 of the best 4 teams in America when you lose this many games is utterly and completely wholeheartedly B.S.
Clemson has no offense, so that one is easy – us winning at home in the rain by 16 points as we are forced to run the football every play instead of floating passes into the teeth of Clemson’s Defense.
South Carolina ? Not with Hutson Mason. Not with this staff. Hutson Mason cannot beat South Carolina. Heck, he isn’t even the best quarterback on THIS team, let alone that field when that field a ranked opponent that season, we as visitors at 1-11 after 2006.
2006 mind you.
That is a lot of previous knowledge about our choices and chances, isn’t it ?
The 1 game on the road we did win after 2006 vs a team ranked for that season # 13 Georgie tek, would’ve VACATED any win over us anyway, in route to what now stands as 4 NCAA Probations for Georgie tek, 3 after 2005 in FOOTBALL.
And, so since once again there is no discussion of Georgie tek, Georgia Southern University, or Georgia State High School downtown who gave up their dorms we built them to Georgie tek, here we go again.
UGA will beat :
# 9 South Carolina, we as visitor vs ranked team by the way with Hutson Mason no less
# 6 Auburn
# 2 Alabama in The SEC Championship Game
# 16 Clemson
# 27 Florida
# 24 Missouri
# 1 in the play-offs
# 3 in the play-offs
Oh, yeah right. I believe that.
I watched ESPN run their special and only 1 pundit on the entire show even considered UGA as 1 of the play-off teams in this new 4-team play-off format, and he said we’d LOSE. No one else on the show even mentioned UGA.
We will beat Georgie tek on NCAA PROBATION again, unranked for the season, again.
We will beat Clemson by 16 points and they will not be ranked for the season.
We will cost Will Mushchamp his job, never head coach material in the 1st place.
We will beat Missouri and keep them from being ranked.
But, we’re not made of the stuff to beat :
# 1 in play-offs
# 2 in SEC Championship Game
# 3 in play-offs
# 6 Auburn
# 9 South Carolina
If you think UGA can beat these 5 Top 10 teams 2014-2015, this is where you know you’re a DISNEYdawgs.com poster of which there are so many blind head in the sand ignoring all the facts
Thanks a lot Mark Bradley, you boob ! I appreciate the laugh like we’ve been on and off the field averaging more arrests/suspensions than losses the latest 6 years and that with 5 losses or 4 losses a year.
Georgie tek, once again, is on NCAA Probation – again. In football, again.
Also in women’s and men’s basketball, again.
Mark Richt has endured Georgie tek on NCAA Probation in Football almost nearly the entire time he’s been our coach for 13 seasons and those seasons they were not, everyone knew they would be for violations they committed those damn few seasons they weren’t.
Mark Bradley says they’re playing stupid again.
Yeah, that about sums it up.
When asked if they cheated or not, all involved admitted that they did and admitted they knew the rules and did it anyway.
It’s what they do.
Believe they are above everyone and every rule.
For example, in women’s basketball, they took every opportunity to take advantage during the recruiting process.
Significant Breach of Conduct
3 women’s basketball coaches were made aware of the violations and “made a conscious decision to not report the violations” the NCAA stated in handing down the most recent of now 4 NCAA Probation Rulings against Georgie tek.
“You can’t just cherry pick a small sample from a much larger body of work and make a fair declaration based on that.”
Good God, DawgFaithful !
Small sample ?
The entire 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era, now is a SMALL SAMPLE
# 23 Won Lost after 2007
Now, all of a sudden is a SMALL SAMPLE
God Almighty !
It’s the current sample.
You want us to judge him today not on what he’s done after 2007, but on what he did BEFORE THAT ?
That’s old ancient history.
I respectfully submit that judging Mark Richt on his first 7 years here is an ancient outdated irrelevant small sample from way back when, when the most recent 6 years have been so damned friqin’ mediocre.
ThomasBrownUGA 19 hours ago“Is Mark Richt 1 of the most accomplished D1 coaches ever at 54-26 the # 23 won/lost after 2007 ?”
DawginCO 8 hours ago@ThomasBrownUGA “You and your obsession with spewing cherry picked statistics that are usually incorrect…any fan merely optimistic about a football team.”
DawginCO 14 hours ago“@ThomasBrownUGA Is that all you can say? I doubt you are a real Bulldog fan…Stuff your cherry picked statistics TB.”
Pardon me genius, but what is cheesy or cherry-picked stat about our mediocre # 23 won/lost record from 2007-2013 ?
It’s not cheesy and it’s not cherry-picked and it’s not a stat but our won/lost record oh brilliant one.
The only aspect of our 54-26 # 23 won/lost record which is cheesy, is our record itself.
Isn’t it DawginCO ?
You want to be an optimistic fan about our football team, have bloody at it, son. But, don’t come running onto the blogs to BRAG about how great we’re doing, ok ?
The reply from our own is that Todd Gurley II says clearly and plainly that we’re mediocre and we lose too many.
As for 54-26 being a lie; that’s bullshit and you know it makes us the # 23 team in won/lost record after 2007 for Our Top 10 All-Time Football Program.
Do you really not know that 54-26 is the # 23 Won/Lost Record ?
Am I supposed to give you a URL Link, again ?
What’s the deal calling that a lie, liar ?
That is one miserable excuse of a retort to 54-26 the # 23 won/lost record that it’s a cheesy cherry-picked stat.
In fact, I have never in my lifetime heard a more pith example of Mark Richt Apologists.
And, just look where it has gotten us – this bragging on how great we are ?
# 23 for the entire 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era for $ 3.5 million dollars a season.
It’s sad really that you actually believe to be a fan of this football program that you have to lie that our won/lost record is a stat, never mind a cheesy one, or a cherry-picked one.
You can cherry-pick anything about football, except our damn sorry cheesy mediocre # 23 won/lost record after 2007.
I feel sorry for you if that is all your wee-little brain can come up with.
You are a 1-legged man in a butt-kicking contest. You have not censored me. I have as much right to my opinion that fans who brag on 54-26 as being great compared to say 72-9 for Alabama and 3 NC, are the problem around here.
You are what brings us down.
You send the message to the damn coach that you love what’s going on.
No, you do not love what’s going on.
But, you believe in your heart of hearts, that that is what you’re supposed to do to be a fan.
No, it’s not.
You are supposed to support your team by telling them that it’s unacceptable to Todd Gurley II and should be to you, and that we must GATA instead and fix this bullshit.
I was on the Debate Team, and represented us in a National Debate on Economics and you think that this retort to our won/lost record is a lie, you state.
Go ahead, since you did not ask for the URL Link of our won/lost record after 2007 as the # 23 nationally, and tell me you know we’re not doing that well nowadays.
Mark Richt started out great here. Since, it’s been far more arrests/suspensions and losses than in his 1st Half of the Mark Richt era.
2014 is more of the same on-going and continuing because you sir brag on what we’re doing nowadays. It’s sad really to see such a mental midget therefore as you are, with these lame excuses for our won/lost record. 2014, we have more arrests/suspensions and more kicked-off players as a result. This is what marks us as a program. These off-the-field issues and our on-the-field losses.
26 losses for 6 years now currently and counting is 5 losses a season average, or 4. What’s so bloody great about that ?
Todd Gurley II is dog-tired of it, and you want to be optimistic.
You’re frigin’ welcome to be optimistic, and guess what ?
I am just as welcome to point out that there is the reality of the joke we’ve become nationally on and off the field.
Now, as for 54-26 the # 23 won/lost record after 2007 through to-date, being a cherry-picked cheesy stat, no sir : it’s called our won/lost record.
Our won/loss record is not a stat.
It’s called our won/loss record, for crying out loud DawginCO.
(1) You said # 23 won/lost record after 2007 is a cheesy cherry-picked STAT.
(2) You said it’s a lie.
Neither, in reality, is true. Now, is it ?
Would you like to try a third excuse for our cheesy # 23 won/lost record after 2007 – the entire 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era, since it’s not a stat but our won/lost record they call it dumbass, and since it’s not untrue.
Mark Richt is 1 of the most liked coaches in college football ever. Everyone likes the guy.
Mark Richt has not done much the 2nd half of his career # 23 nationally at 54-26 and 7-22 vs teams making either the AP or Coaches’ Poll Top 25, but Mark Richt is a great guy everyone loves.
So, the http://www.DISNEYdawgs.com fans, the Chuck Dowdle crew, the vocal minority who relish censorship so that no one is allowed to say excuse me but we’ve not been doing well after 2007 at # 23 nationally won/lost record 54-26, put up the straw dog that there are folks out there who hate Mark Richt.
No there are not any Mark Richt haters. There are just those who refuse to admit we’ve not done well at # 23 won/lost after 2007, and those who dare to suggest we need to fix this and now on and off the field and that we don’t accomplish fixing it by burying our heads in the sand or censoring those who don’t bury their heads in the sand. Nor are we on the road to fixing this bullshit by telling our kicked-off players again this off-season that we love them. For God’s Sake. Excuse me, I do not love Nick Marshall for example whom Mark Richt was given great credit for bringing here and whom he sent the mixed message that he Mark Richt loved Nick Marshall AFTER he kicked him off the team. That’s turning his back on Nick Marshall who needed and still does to be told to obey the rules – according to Jasper Sanks.
Mark Richt is a great recruiter and has put together a staff of great recruiters who since 2001 have averaged the 2nd best recruiting ranking average and have the 2nd most NFL Draft Picks to prove he’s had the 2nd best talent in the Nation 2001-2014. Yet, is # 23 won/lost entire 2nd half of his career.
Not getting the job done on or off the field :
What is wrong with this picture that a great guy whom everyone loves, has straw dog posts about there being folks out there who hate Mark Richt ? What they themselves are unable to bring themselves to say is that 7-22 vs teams who make the AP or Coaches’ Poll Top 25 these most-recent 6 years after 2007, is unacceptable given the level of talent he is bragged on for signing here. 54-26 the # 23 Won/Lost Record is also unacceptable and needs to be fixed forthwith.
There are in fact Mark Richt haters the B.S. straw dog blog posters say. Those are not realistic fans of my alma mater, but instead Mark Richt Apologists who want to argue Mark Richt is great. And, they only wish they could censor what everyone knows about Mark Richt’s failures on and off the field after 2007. No, ladies and gentlemen, Mark Richt has not been great the 2nd Half his Career here. It’s best to censor them they argue so as to not hurt recruiting. The Good Lord knows our recruits are all idiots who do not know themselves that our moniker nowadays is to LOSE the big games when Todd Gurley II says he is tired of “losing and being mediocre.” The Good Lord knows our recruits are incapable of thinking for themselves and if we just censor the OBVIOUS FACTS, we will help our recruiting, when it is not our recruiting but our ineffective use of same that remains the issue here.
National championships is not of concern, but the utter failure on and off the field, is.
# 23 with # 2 talent
Sure we beat # 4 South Carolina and # 14 LSU but lost 5 games to AP Poll Top 25 teams most recently, did we not ?
Sure we beat # 4 vols 2001, but managed to lose to 4 lackluster teams as well that season.
That’s knocking the lid off the Top 10 All-Time College Football Program in Wins, Mark Richt argues – LOSING 4 games. Uh, no it’s not. Is it ?
8 times lost games who even with their win over us, did not make the Top 25 that season we lost to them.
It’s what we do.
Shoot ourselves in the foot.
Sure we beat # 24 FSU in a BCS Bowl Game 2003 and beat # 19 Hawai’i 2007 in a BCS Bowl Game but those are the only Mark Richt era BCS Bowl wins, when in 2003 Mark Richt managed with his great offense to go 0-13 on 3rd Downs against a team who lost 5 games 2003 and should have been 6. In 2007, Mark Richt lost to not only a lousy vols’ team who lost to 7-6 California and lost to 7-6 Alabama both whom otherwise have losing seasons, but also we lost to a 6-6 not even in a bowl game, South Carolina 2007.
And, how long ago was 2007 ?
How long since Mark Richt did so well as visitor against teams making the Top 25 ?
1-9 most recently.
How long ago was our last SEC Championship when we ended the season # 3 SEC team every poll ?
How long ago was our 1st SEC Championship when that was a down year for The SEC, wasn’t it ?
Anyone who suggests such is a heretic and a Mark Richt hater when the world knows it’s the truth that everyone loves Mark Richt : it’s just that he’s not done well after 2007 at # 23 won/lost at 54-26, especially against teams who make the AP or Coaches’ Poll Top 25 at only 7-22.
So, another off-season has passed with yet again predictions of 15-0 and predictions therefore of beating # 1 and # 3 in the play-offs, beating # 2 Alabama in The SEC Championship Game, beating # 6 Auburn, beating # 9 South Carolina on the road, beating # 16 Clemson who has no offense, beating # 24 Missouri, and of beating # 27 Florida. An off-season of nothing but turmoil again because punishment is not discipline, but that which must be administered for failing to teach the kids to obey the rules. And, so we’re down to 78 of the 119 scholarship recruits signed to play with redshirt 2014, and can beat these 8 teams and Georgie tek with what’s left standing given the facts of our 2nd half of the Mark Richt era with 2014 more of the same either 9-5 if we make it to The SEC Championship Game and 9-4 if we don’t.
Did I miss it, or you demand a reply and failed to put up your prediction of 2014-2015 for Mark Richt ?
We will beat Clemson, even with Hutson Mason masquerading as our Starting Quarterback until Brice Ramsey cannot be denied as his replacement because Clemson has no Offense.
I am very disappointed with the http://www.SECnetwork.com as I am with fans who think I should be censored for pointing out my disappointment with 7-22 and 54-26 after 2007, the 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era.
There I said it. I feel better having said it. It’s not acceptable.
I do not care about Mark Richt not having won any National Championships with his 2nd best talent unarguably.
That isn’t the measure.
# 23 Won/Lost after 2007, and our 7-22 vs teams making the AP or Coaches’ Poll Top 25 for the entire 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era (after 2007.)
This IS the measure of Mark Richt with the 2nd best talent in avg recruiting rankings and as verified by his 2nd most NFL Draft Picks of 72 that he’s # 23 won/lost and 7-22 vs top 25 the seasons after 2007 here.
You know ?
” one of the most accomplished coaches ever in D-1″ Hal Welch 1 day ago.
Uh, no, he’s not close to that Hal Welch the 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era, now is he sir ?
“If I had a son being recruited by Alabama and Georgia to play football, I would try to steer him towards Georgia BECAUSE of CMR’s character. When it comes to who coaches my kids, character trumps championships…I just believe that CMR sets the bar when it comes to character. If programs like Alabama set the bar for championships, I would argue that CMR sets the bar for character.” DSW61 1 day ago.
Mark Richt has not gotten the job done on or off the field, after 2007 at 54-26 and 7-22 vs top 25 AP or Coaches’ Top 25 for the seasons after 2007 – the 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era, has he DSW61?
Another off-season of hogwash about what is and what isn’t.
I do not consider being # 23 with the # 2 best talent, 1 of the most accomplished coaches ever in the history of college football.
And, I know you know it’s NOT either, DSW61, for it most certainly is not sir. Now, is it ?
Shame on you for bragging at the top of your lungs that it is, when I’m like Todd Gurley II : sick and dog-tired of losing and of being mediocre. It’s utter nonsense to brag Mark Richt is 1 of the most accomplished coaches ever in the entire history of college football and furthermore, it’s bullshit as coaching is doing more with less, not less with more.
