yellowjackets # 17 in 2015 pre-season Coaches’ Poll, Georgia # 9

10 of the 14 SEC teams got votes in the Coaches’ Poll today and 8 SEC teams are ranked in the Top 25 Coaches’ Pre-Season Poll for this 2015 season.

You might recall that Georgie tek has averaged the # 52 recruiting ranking while we have averaged the # 9 recruiting ranking.  # 9 recruiting ranking is the ranking of every National Championship team in the Mark Richt era.

But, Georgie tek yellowjackets beat Mark Richt because Mark Richt ahead by a FIELD GOAL in his infinite wisdom as our head coach, pooch kicked the kick-off, handing the Georgie tek yellowjackets the damn football at the 43-yard line with Mark Richt only ahead by only 3 points with 13 seconds on the clock.

The Coaches’ Poll is unimpressed.  Who cares that Georgie tek yellowjackets beat The University of Georgia, with the coaches across America making Georgie tek yellowjackets # 17 and making UGA # 9.

Teams we play this season in the Pre-Season Coaches’ Poll are :

vols are # 25

Alabama is # 3

Georgie tek yellowjackets # 17

Auburn # 7

South Carolina is # 36

Florida is # 48 tied with Georgia Southern University (GSU)

Kentucky is # 53

Mark Richt is one of the coaches, but he told all of us that he has an assistant who does the vote for him.

The AP Poll is a month away.


Bull Shit, Brian Jones Bull Shit BLEACHER REPORT, says Alabama, Auburn, and Missouri will NOT RUIN our 2015-2016 season. He does, however, point out : We LOST last season again to South Carolina when “the Bulldogs came up short because of a few questionable coaching decisions”

The Bleacher Report has some stupid blog design where you click multiple clicks to read one article.  You see nothingness on multiple WebPages. They also CENSOR blog replies so that ONLY THEIR viewpoint is presented.  Dissenting comments that point out the truth, are deleted because it MAKES THEM LOOK worse than they ALREADY ARE.

Brian Jones of Bleacher Report says today that “the Bulldogs came up short because of a few questionable coaching decisions” last season, again, against South Carolina.  This season the game is at 6pm ESPN.  It’s the only game we have the 1st four games.  One of the “questionable coaching decisions” last year was starting Hutson Mason against Steve Spurrier.  Another was calling for Hutson Mason who can NOT run to run around in the backfield, and throw the ball through the end zone if nothing is there.  Hutson Mason can not throw the ball from the 4-yard line through the end zone; he’s not capable of a pass that far, and everyone knew that about his floating passes before we used Todd Gurley II as a decoy 1st and Goal from their 4-yard line on the turnover, debris raining down from the South Carolina stands onto the field stopping the game to clean up because they knew that would be the end of the game for them, playing the wrong quarterback as they did, too.

It was a recurring theme for Mark Richt, again, 2014 making these bad coaching decisions Brian Jones refers to as : “the Bulldogs came up short because of a few questionable coaching decisions.”

He did the same against Georgie tek you recall, that Brian Jones does NOT POINT OUT with a couple of ticks left on the clock, us ahead, squib kicking the kick-off.

Mark Richt in our locker room after the Florida loss, told OUR PLAYERS – ALL OF THEM – TO SHUT UP and quit saying he took Florida too lightly.  You recall Florida having lost 10 of their previous 13 games, and firing their coach the week AFTER they beat Mark Richt again.  This left Mark Richt 5-9 against Florida.

But, the real story here by Brian Jones is that he says Alabama, Auburn, and Missouri will NOT RUIN our 2015-2016 season.

Sure they will.

We can NOT beat the top teams, barely win more than we lose against teams who go on to a bowl game, and throw in for good measure on top of all that, INEXPLICABLE LOSSES to lesser-talented teams every single solitary year.

Of of the last 24 teams to make the Final AP Poll Top 25 we’ve played, we’ve LOST 21.

Our win percentage over this same timeframe after 2007, when Kathryn Richt was diagnosed with Cancer, against bowl teams is only 54 %.

And, we have lost inexplicable losses to lesser-talented teams, such as in just the most-recent season, losing to # 52 average recruiting ranking Georgie tek, losing to a hapless Florida squad firing their coach the week AFTER he beat us because Florida had lost 10 of their 13 most recent games before they beat the ever living shit out of us, and losing to a hapless talentless South Carolina.  None of those 3 losses had teams any where as near gifted as we were.  Coaching is getting more from less.  We do the opposite here at UGA because we play a trophy for everyone, bad coaching decisions, poor roster management playing a trophy for everyone instead of playing our best players the most like every other coach does, ever.

But, Alabama, Missouri and Auburn pose no threat to RUIN our 2015-2016 season, Brian Jones ?

Piss off, dumbass : That is pure unadulterated bull shit.  Sure they will, along with our annual do not give a shit games against talentless opponents every year, he always throws in for good measure every freaking season for our better talented players to lose because of coaching decisions where Mark Richt says here at UGA we do not care about winning, but something higher as OUR CALLING.

Bull Shit.

So, instead of taking his cue from the players, who all off-season have stated how they DID TAKE FLORIDA LIGHTLY, Mark Richt tells them to shut up about that, and tell us how great we will be when he has prepared NO QUARTERBACK to play this season again.  This is now, ten seasons in a row that Mark Richt has failed to prepare a back-up QB for us.  It has been his undoing every season.  Our players have also spent all off-season this off-season telling ALL OF US they are DOG-TIRED of LOSING and being mediocre.

Seems our coach and our players have 2 different goals for our team.

(1) Coach wants to have some OTHER GOAL OTHER THAN WINNING which he repeatedly states is not important to him.

(2) ALL our players are dog-tired of all this losing.  Losing to top teams away from Sanford, losing to any team who goes on to any ole bowl game, and throwing in for good measure every season losses to far less talented teams than we hand our coach.

Mark Richt stole the Georgie tek game away from our players last season.  We won that game only to have our coach throw it away because of his bad coaching decisions.  Brian Jones does NOT POINT THIS OUT.

He likewise did against South Carolina.  Brian Jones did point out that Mark Richt cost us that game with his bad coaching decisions.

And, he did as well against Florida.  Then, has the audacity to tell the players to SHUT-UP Mark Richt tells them ALL, all of our players saying Mark Richt took Florida too lightly.

Shit.  Alabama, Auburn and Missouri pose no threat to RUIN OUR 2015-2016 season ?

Bull shit Brian Jones, as per usual for your posts.

We have ALL THIS TALENT, waste our good players in this trophy for everyone sitting them on the bench and not playing them such as on special teams we still have no coach for.

But, WORST OF ALL FOR OUR PROGRAM after 2007, Mark Richt tells us again and again, at UGA we have a HIGHER CALLING than winning football games in this floundering program.

SUNSHINE PUMPING – fail to realize the reality currently and instead continue to ballyhoo a person and/or program when team used to win 60% games vs top teams 1st 7 years and now since only 29 %.

sunshine pumper

“One who fails to realize the reality of a situation, and instead continues to …ballyhoo a person [and/or] program…”

“The sunshine pumper sees that their team and coaches are playing hard equating to good, when in fact the players are not performing adequately and the coaches have failed to properly recruit/train/coach the team.”

Sunshine Pumping

“Noun or Verb. It’s the “Pollyanna approach” people…use to persuade others that things are better than they really are in order to get what they want… [People] often do this when describing their accomplishments… [These people] make these exaggeratedly positive or down right untrue claims to convince [others of their bias toward the topic.]  This sunshine pumping benefits only the pumper at the expense of the one it is erroneously poured upon.”

60 % win percentage against top teams 1st 7 years, and only 29 % since.

The build-up and hot air about how well we are doing, daily, is lambasted far and wide by every fair and honest increasingly scrutinizing person.

The players, the fans more and more, and all the media sources are all demanding that we do put asunder all this on-going hype about the program nowadays after 2007 and get after it.

Are we to have a built-in excuse for 2015 season, again ?

Why is it we can not win away from Sanford against teams who actually end up making the AP Poll that season anymore ?

Why is it that the time of game or end of season teams who are ranked, are beating us when Mark Richt first got here for the 1st seven years here, he was 60 % win percentage against them and now since, only 29 % against them ?

Why is it we continue to every off-season hype the team only to be dumfounded and numb at the losses to far-lesser talented teams every year ?

We can NOT beat the top teams and lose to the lesser-talented teams after 2007.

We can not even barely beat even just the teams who go on to a bowl game at only 54 % win % after 2007.

What happened to us after 2007 ?

We have all the talent in the world, and all we spend our time doing is following the recruiting, like MORE talent or the RIGHT TALENT will finally get us over the hump.  Recruiting is not the problem, is it ?  So, it is not the solution either then, is it ?

We have been sunshine pumping this program nowadays every off-season for 9 long seasons now, and what has this brought you, our players, our coach, and our program ?

Not a damn thing.

Let’s try a different approach.

Let’s demand MORE ?

“I think the reason David is doing what he’s doing is he’s never had a problem just spewing stuff out.” Mark Richt told Chip Towers AJ-C UGA Sports Blog about David Pollack.

So, according to Mark Richt, all David Pollack has ever done is spewing stuff out.

“in the big room at SEC Football Media Days last week…a reporter asked Richt if he ever got tired of the constant criticism he receives for having come up short for a championship each of the last nine years” Chip Towers AJ-C UGA Sports Blog

“in the big room at SEC Football Media Days last week…a reporter asked Richt if he ever got tired of the constant criticism he receives for having come up short for a championship each of the last nine years”

Chip Towers AJ-C UGA Sports Blog this morning.

Coincidently, Mark Richt has failed to prepare a back-up QB each of the last nine years, as well.

Jason Butt of the Columbus Georgia Ledger Enquirer says Mark “Richt has seen his fair share of criticism over the years.” “thinking his teams have underachieved over the years”

“Mississippi talk radio host Bo Bounds, of ESPN The Zone 105.9, appeared on The Paul Finebaum Show in mid-June and lambasted Richt, saying, ‘He’s one of the most overrated coaches in the last decade of college football.’ “

Jason Butt says today in the Columbus Georgia Ledger Enquirer.  The Ledger Enquirer is one of the premier newspapers for Bulldogs’ coverage.


“Richt has seen his fair share of criticism over the years…he hasn’t led a team to a victory in Atlanta since 2005…thinking his teams have underachieved over the years.”


When you won 60% of the games against the top teams 2001-2007 and only 29% since, you get more and more of these type of articles.  Given that the level of talent has been the same all these many years now, it is pretty hard to ignore all the criticism Mark Richt gets for this, now.


Mark Richt 1st half his career here compared to 2nd half his career here NOW. 60 % win percentage vs top teams 1st 7 years and only 29 % since. BILL SHANKS

Mark Richt was MUCH BETTER when he first got here, compared to now.  His 1st 7 years here were outstanding.

Since then, he sucks.
