I like I’mYourHuckleberry because he calls it like it is. Always has. Always will. He also listens to the fans who offer-up their opinion on HIS blog. He lets them have their say. I respect that.
I heartily recommend reading his blog and always have. He has his finger on the pulse of The Great Bulldog Nation and I think he speaks for us as mainstream Bulldogs.
I am mainstream Bulldogs and HAVE BEEN for 59 years seasons’ tickets worth.
I’mYourHuckleberry is right there with me. I took a LOT of grief on his blog posting to it as I did all these years. I didn’t care for his software but I cared for his words so I never missed one of his rare posts all these years.
Not afraid to call it like it is.
I’mYourHuckleberry says today :
“At the end of the day Mark Richt’s fate as head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs was decided on October 31 2015 when the Florida Gators manhandled the Dawgs to the tune of 27-3 at Everbank Field. On the drive back from Jacksonville to Saint Simons it was a different feeling you could feel an era ending.”
I’ve known I’mYourHuckleberry to call it like it is. I once asked him if it is acceptable that he averaged 4 losses per season for 7 years a year and half ago and you know he bellied right up to that bar and offered : “No.” EVERY OTHER blog writer approved by the Dawgbone at the time said they would NOT answer that question.
Of course I think Mark Richt’s fate was sealed when he had Won 80 % of his games kick-off 5th game 2008 season when he had started the season pre-season consensus # 1 at 76-19. Divide it out. 76 divided by 95 games at the time. Won 80 % of them. Certainly here for the long haul.
68 % after.
The whole team went out and celebrated being # 1 and half the team was or should have been suspended for those 1st games of the 2008 season.
It was awful.
Then the drubbing by Kirby Smart in his bullshit black-out against Alabama that game going in at 80 % win percentage.
He ended his career not only 68 % win percentage after kick-off that Black-Out Game but loser of 18 of his last 24 games vs top 15 time of game # 45 in the nation at that with 12 losses to unranked teams either time of game or for the season and with 7 losses by more than 3 TD when he NEVER had such a blow-out prior to that ill-fated Black-Out kick-off down nothing to 31 at half as the FAVORED higher ranked team supposed to win here ‘Tween The Hedges and barely above the Mendoza Line vs any ole team who even went to a Bowl Game any bowl game that season # 33 in the nation at that after that kick-off that SEALED HIS FATE.
I’mYourHuckleberry said that was unacceptable.
Go read Bluto today.
He says today that Kirby must win and win big and soon. That’s because he is STILL BITTER about me being right on this (and I’mYourHuckleberry) and him wrong right down the line. Trying to save face.
Bluto “don’t think losing his job this year. (Nov ’15) can’t deny was decision that couldn’t be justified.Again not saying you can’t make a case that he didn’t deserve to lose his job”
One a man. One not.
A man who stepped-up and did not DUCK the question as tough as it was at the time.
An unpopular decision to criticize Mark Richt in public for LOSING.
Not brag about 9-win season but whom did he beat ? Well it was 2-6 in The SEC Auburn who was our best win last year. That’s whom it was we beat as our best win.
It’s not a very high bar set for Kirby is it ?
No it was the kick-off to Alabama 2008 that sealed Mark Richt’s fate.
He was NEVER the same thereafter.
Only it took a LOT of our blog writers far too long to admit it to me.
I’mYourHuckleberry was the ONLY 1 who did.
He’ll remember it.
I tried to shape what would be said about Mark Richt and all I got was Internet Bullies except for I’mYourHuckleberry and he not only let me have my say he actually answered the question NONE of the rest of the approved Dawgbone blogs would : Is it acceptable that Mark Richt lost an average of 4 losses per season for his last entire 8 years with the # 7 average Scout.com recruiting rankings ?
You will find him over on Bulldog Illustrated now a site that was Leather Helmet Dawg I loved and now appears to be a pay-per-view FAILED MODEL site now ?
That’ll NEVER work.
Can read all that somewhere else free.
Always have been.
Always will be.
As soon as they TRY to charge me to read there I’m outta here.
“Better win big, son. And soon.”
Bitter ass son of a bitch. No Senator Bluto the bar is NOT set very God Damn High son. Admit it ? You always were WRONG on this and we right – weren’t we Senator Bluto ?
You’re STILL WRONG Senator Bluto and I’mYourHuckleberry so ever much closer to right than you EVER will be son.
2 Dawgbone approved blogs read the same post – a URL Link the Dawgbone NEVER offered-up- and one has a completely divergent take on what he got from Kirby’s HUGE BIG interview on ESPN today with Kirby and Chris Low both taking Mark Richt to the cleaners so Mr. Blue of the Dawgbone REFUSES to provide this URL Link today to you on his site at all with it the MOST READ article today on the Internet for All Bulldogs.
Pretty amazing story all around. Thought you should know especially that BOTH these blogs I’mYourHuckleberry AND Senator Bluto read the MOST READ BULLDOG URL LINK today had completely different takes AND Mr. Blue Dawgbone NEVER did put it up for criticizing Mark Richt ungodly to do that I mean he won 9 games but whom was it he beat ? 2-6 SEC Auburn is who was his best win.
The Dawgbone Mr. Blue – he gives you some URL Links mostly to pay-per-view sites notably during 8 years of unsatisfactory results refused to provide that news – thinks can control what you think STILL.
Not MY take on this EITHER Senator Bluto AND Mr. Blue Dawgbone.
Both of you can STICK IT UP YOUR ASS.
Ha ha and for good measure I was right all along wasn’t I Mr Blue Dawgbone and Senator Bluto get the picture gtp and you’re both still WRONG asshole liars. Aren’t you ?
Shove it up your God Damn Asshole.
Chris Low ESPN senior writer said I was RIGHT all along too today.
Thought you should know.
