Smith Street from South Lumpkin Street to Sanford Drive should be razed & that asphalt made into grass for new Indoor Practice Facility. Where the new gym ?

I am not in favor of razing Hope Smith Annex.  That building was constructed too far in from Carlton Street, needlessly.  Now, it is in the way.  There is no need for Smith Street to exist starting at South Lumpkin Street over to Sanford Drive.  We can repurpose Hope Smith Annex and expand it further over towards Carlton Street.

The New Indoor Practice Facility has focused mainly on an area miles and miles away, making that site totally untenable. However, this block of land has a building which when it was built, was intended to be there forever.

The bigger issue ultimately after all these monies are finally actually spent, is that the block next to the New Indoor Practice Facility where the Stegosaurus still stands as our “gym” built as a Cow Palace, still has to be replaced with a New Gym.

I am still struggling with $ 4 million dollars spent last week on Joni Crenshaw, an unproven coach of any sport at any level, taking over the # 5 all-time Women’s Basketball Program Lady Bulldogs.

Now, this $ 50 million dollar IPF requires we raze Hope Smith Annex.

And, the real issue is they are still ducking the fact that it’s been half a century since we hosted an NCAA Big Dance Tournament Game here in the dilapidated stinking old poorly designed Stegosaurus. Leave the Stegosaurus for what it was originally intended for, and give it to the Agricultural Department.

We need a new gym.  With these wild expenses, when can we expect a new gym ?

We could have hired a proven women’s college head coach, who at least has coached somewhere.  Paying her this $ 4 million dollar contract is uncalled for.

We have no vision.

We have no purpose.

We have no direction to our Athletics’ Department anymore.

This is all nonsense.  Where’s our gym ?

Georgie tek had 4,000 show up to their annual Spring Football Game whatever it is called, yesterday.  We had 47,000 at ours last week, when we determined we have not prepared ANY quarterback to be our Quarterback 2015 – something which has not occurred previously prior to Fran Tarkenton I saw playing at Sanford with my Dad in the late 1950 timeframe.

Georgie tek already has a new gym.

Georgie tek already has a sort of Indoor Practice Facility, although it is not even a full football field.

We have neither, but have 11 times as many fans at our Spring Football Games in the last week.

It’s the same crowd Georgie tek has every year for their Spring Football Game.

We have a pitiful Athletics’ Department right now.

All the wrong decisions are being made to keep up with Georgie tek.

We are without conceptual forethought wasting monies and making all the wrong decisions for all the wrong reasons.

Tear Down Hope Smith Annex ?

Get real.

When are we going to fix the cash cow that pays for all this where the men’s bathrooms are exactly the same now at Sanford Stadium as they were at Ponce de Leon Ballpark on Ponce de Leon Avenue, across from the old Sears Building in Atlanta ?

This whole entire sordid mess wreaks of piss, like our football program after 2007 with 29 losses, an average of more than 4 losses a season for 7 seasons and counting.

Is there nothing we can get right  in our Athletics’ Department anymore ?

We are 34-28, a measly 54 % win percentage against teams making a bowl game after 2007 in football – and, we are the # 11 all-time winningest 1-A football program.  Our baseball team sucks.  Our men’s and women’s basketball program compete with all these newer fancier basketball gyms, and cannot keep the players in-state because of our facilities’ mismanagement.  Our women’s gymnastics’ program cannot win anymore either.  Our women’s basketball coach quit over his team’s inability to win.  We hire a baseball coach who can do nothing.  We hire a women’s basketball coach who has never coached a tiddlywinks team and pay her $ 4 million dollars, while she pleads for recruits in-state to stay here and play at the Stegosaurus. Our men’s rooms at the facility paying for all this stink of piss.  And, we have a president Jere Morehead allowing the utter complete failure of Greg McGarity to continue unabated since he took over, with no experience either.

We are a rudderless ship with a coach lying to us for his $ 50 million we’ve given him that he is going to win The SEC East this coming season, like that is our goal.

Shit, we suck.

Top all that off with Mark Richt announcing a few weeks’ ago now that here at Georgia, we adhere a higher Calling than Winning.

We make no timely decisions and the ones we gnash our teeth over for half a century, are wrong-headed.

How can this be that we will raze Hope Smith Annex ?

Joni Crenshaw, a beautiful lady and top athlete, student, and civic leader takes on the challenge of keeping in-state players here in Georgia, to come play at the Stegosaurus.

Andy Landers endorses Joni Crenshaw, despite the fact that UGA Lady Bulldogs are the Top 5 program nationally by all accounts, while Joni has never coached anywhere.  It’s quite a challenge the fine lady has taken on.  No coach at UGA, men’s or women’s, has begun to be able to attract the top in-state talent to this relic of a gym at the state’s leading institution in the now over 50 years the out-dated cow palace has served as our basketball home.

Joni Crenshaw is a 4-year letterman from Alabama, after making high school All-America and Home Coming Queen in Mississippi.  She has her degree in Education from Alabama, like all 4-year letterman for Andy Landers did here.

Greg McGarity really has a poor record here at Georgia as Athletic Director, and while most of that is based upon his showings in football during his watch here, he really has not stood out in his previous hires.

Once a top all-sports University annually, during Greg McGarity’s watch, my alma mater has suffered greatly across the board in all sports – notably ending Andy Landers’ career in early retirement – disgraced by the effort of the current players 2015 season.

Joni Crenshaw has led the recruiting efforts everywhere she served previously – all in assistant staff roles.

One would think that UGA would have lured away a proven coach from somewhere, but instead Joni Crenshaw is tapped to be promoted here, where she has been the previous 4 years here, recruiting this talent that so under-achieved that the coach quit over it and took early retirement.

It’s a bold move to take such a fine lady and make her a Top 5 Program All-Time Head Coach.

Success and failure will be measured here, in-state, in recruiting classes.

Andy Landers was known as a tough disciplinarian and was our only coach ever, hired by Vince Dooley, who has quite a long list of great hires he made – not the least of which was hiring Andy Landers as a proven head coach in women’s basketball in 1979.

Joni Crenshaw might just fit the bill from what I’ve seen of her on the sidelines here, as the antithesis of Andy Landers bullish persona in games representing us.  He was known for a tough defense, but this last season, all that went out the window.

All the recruits who are here on the team, were recruited here by Joni Crenshaw.

This team cannot shoot the ball, nor did anyone step-up and shoot the ball well for us this season.  Every time down the court, they jacked it up as a team.  Our shooting percentages, as a team, were atrocious every game all season long.

McKenzie Ingram is our star to build our team around next season, if she stays.

If not, this is going to be a task only a seasoned veteran would know how to deal with.

Andy Landers’ stated attitude for 3 and a half decades here, is that the players themselves have to come to UGA motivated.  That’s a little curious actually.  It is the primary function, once a college coach gets a player to the campus, to motivate the player.  In fact, in management courses I excelled in here at UGA, planning, organizing, controlling, staffing, and leading directing or motivating are the very precepts of this position as Top 5 Program Head Coach.

Andy Landers was tough.

Very tough.

No one ever really broached that subject.

Joni Crenshaw leads, directs, motivates in a completely opposite approach.  This could serve her well.  Not privy myself to recruiting against Andy Landers, one would think there might have been some negative recruiting going on.

Despite not having the top talent in-state stay here any year for 36 years, Andy Landers’ approach did work.

It might have grinded on some high school kids or rival coaches, but we all took it in stride as there never was any impropriety on his part – just stubborn meanness.

I never missed a game Andy Landers coached on TV – not in 36 years.  I have been to many home games, and many away games, but now that the SEC Network televises these games live, there is much actually for Joni Crenshaw to work with in recruiting the top gals in-state to stay at the state’s top institution.

Flagship.

Joni Crenshaw certainly does not have the sideline persona that Andy Landers did.

Quite the opposite is the case, on and off the court.

You do not have to be friends of those whom you are in charge of, but there is no set rule that the manager, the leader, the head coach, cannot be liked and respected. You can like a coach because of his or her success.

Andy Landers had that.

Andy Landers told it like it is, too.

He is respected for that, as well.

And, for his accomplishments in our classrooms and in our games, and everything associated with our Top 5 program only he, ever, coached.

In time, Andy Landers College Basketball Hall of Fame recipient years ago now, will be recognized in all these areas.

What everyone really saw every game was a man yelling and screaming on the sidelines at his players.

Can I say that ?

I just did.

He certainly never had any problems with his gals, in the classrooms, on or off the court.

No one dared.

In many respects, Joni Crenshaw is long overdue this position no one heretofore offered.

She has certainly studied under the greats of the game, and here the top assistant 4 years’ running to Andy Landers – replacing a cast who really none of them have gone on to greatness.  The players, hell yes, the former players of Andy Landers have and did go on to greatness.

Our women’s gymnastics program has fallen into the pits after Greg McGarity’s hires here.

I believe our Athletics’ Department still is mired in saving money, not spending money, making money, and cares little about the fans and our strong desire to actually win.

Our baseball team certainly is not doing well, yet over the years in that sport too, UGA has done very well.

Really, none of the hires of Greg McGarity have worked out.

Certainly his record on his watch in the main sport football, has been very poor – not even in the Top 25 for his time here – which began before the 2010 season.  We have smelly bathrooms, old out of date facilities, loads of cash, and sorry teams in every sport under Greg McGarity.

I said before the hire was made that it would be questioned whomever he chose, unless he chose a proven top head women’s basketball coach commensurate with our Top 5 All-Time Status under Andy Landers.

Top schools in a sport hire proven head coaches, and pay them the money.

We have a unique set of challenges here at UGA in both men’s and women’s basketball, with all the talent here in-state and none attending the state’s leading institution. None.

Either sport.

Basketball has gotten a bad name.  The stars of the game do whatever they want.  They are paid millions and jack it up.  No one looks at shooting percentage of those shots.  It’s a game where 6 players can put an entire program on its back and win it all.

Andy Landers never did that.

Women’s basketball enjoys a far better rep than the men do.

The men are 1 and done, and many programs in shady dealings on and off the court.

Here, we have enjoyed success in women’s basketball just not the ultimate success.

A coach is judged on his or her success ultimately and this one, there is no measure except for what she can do following a tough act to follow.  It certainly puts her on the map, and about time is all I can say.

I think women should be coached by women.

I love Georgia Lady Bulldogs’ basketball program as they have provided me 36 years of fun rooting them on.  But, I am not stupid enough to be blind in my love about us.  I want us to win, but in basketball mostly I want us to quit reading about the women and the men in this state doing so much in the sport and us out of the equation.

If Andy Landers had had a new gym, he would have kept some of these gals in-state, and therein would’ve been all the difference.

But, here at UGA, we adhere to something more important than winning – the almighty dollar.

Everyone will still recruit against us on the basis of our Stegosaurus having not hosted any post-season NCAA Tournament games in now nearly half a century.

It’s time our Athletics’ Department stepped it up and supported our sports in all manners relating to our winning.

Right now, this is a tough task for Joni Crenshaw, a fine lady and wonderful woman, accomplished civic leader, and solid recruiter who certainly knows the game of basketball and The South.

I believe Joni Crenshaw knows what she faces.  The kids might identify with her; at least I know they should.  But, a proven head coach for a Top 5 Women’s College Basketball Program All-Time, she is not.  Best of luck to you Joni Crenshaw.  I will be pulling for you to pull this off, dear.  You’re one of us !

Dumbass Bluto, who at no point during the movie itself was he Senator, says he knows how teams feel about being left out of The Big Games at the end of EVERY SEASON because Bluto felt that way 2007.

Dimwit,

 

One, 2007 was now 8 years’ ago.

 

We just finished our G-Day Game 2015 without figuring out so much as who our damned quarterback even is.

 

This after we have lost 29 games after that fateful 2007 precious season so far to-date, an average of MORE than 4 losses a season.

 

Certainly not elite and not requiring any discussion as if we are.

 

Two, 2007, in case you cannot remember now this 2015 season, eight seasons’ ago, we lost at our Home to 6-6 South Carolina who did NOT even go to a damned bowl game.

 

And, in 2007, we were blown out by should have been 5-loss vols.  The final score ?  14-35.  They beat the ever living shit out of us.  More than 3 and a half touchdowns, the lousy should have been 5-loss vols beat us.

 

And, you have the unmitigated friqin’ gall to not discuss our issues yesterday again on Special Teams, and at Quarterback, but TRY to bring up instead that we were damn it all HOSED in 2007 to be left out all those years’ ago now.

 

Bullshit Bluto.  Friqin’ Bullshit son.

 

https://blutarsky.wordpress.com/2015/04/12/i-was-told-the-reason-we-had-a-selection-committee-is-we-were-going-to-take-all-that-stuff-out-of-it/

G-Day Game 2015 : Is Jacob Park the next 4-year starter here at UGA ? Brice Ramsey hurt himself again today. Jacob Park interception a tough luck throw, and now all off-season, Mark Richt justified to not have 4-year starter because of that ?

It looked like a bad day for UGA, about what one would expect from a Mark Richt team who has averaged more than 4 losses a year for 7 seasons now and counting.  29 losses starting 2008 until now.  The team looked like the same team we saw lose to 3 lesser-talented teams 2014, two of whom did not make a single solitary Top 25 Poll.

As for the Quarterbacks, they all showed the rust you knew they would, having not been used, having not been prepared, and all 3 looked the part of a QB who is not comfortable back there.  Maybe it’s best that Faton Bauta was not moved to running back last year when all our running backs except Nick Chubb were injured or otherwise unable to compete.

Jacob Park, except for that throw into triple coverage, where he threw the ball at a catchable height but goes as an over throw for a 50-yard interception return, which he had to stop really on his own, I thought had a pretty good day.  Not that he was really given a chance.

We will waste his season this season.

Brice Ramsey really had a poor day, again.  He does that.  For a guy with his arm, it is a crying shame no one on our staff can teach him how to be a pocket passer, drop back, get his footwork right, and turn it loose.

Faton Bauta did not even run the ball, and this staff believes this is his biggest strength because he does not have the arm they say that Brice Ramsey and Jacob Park do.  He showed me he can pass the ball well, as he showed me last year, too.

What they do in the G-Day Game does not mean anything, as that is Mark Richt’s personal call.  He chose Aaron Murray over Zach Mettenberger and made Aaron Murray his favorite, despite the fact that Zach Mettenberger, by far, had the best Spring G-Day Game.  In fact, Zach Mettenberger was put down the list by Mark Richt in favor of Joe Cox.  Even with the flu and his chronic shoulder keeping him out of 2 practices a week his entire career here, Joe Cox played every minute losing at Okie State – a team that even with that victory over Mark Richt, did not even make the AP Poll Top 25 for that 2009 season Zach Mettenberger put up such a strong showing at the G-Day Game.

Anyone who thought 2015 was going to be a year of running for UGA, was hit in the face with a cold dose of reality that Nick Chubb is the only running back who consistently can hit the hole, but it does beg the question about A.J. Turman one of the very best football players in the state of Florida three (3) years’ ago.  Despite his couple of break-aways, he otherwise had a tough go of it, against a defense that last year was like a sieve against the run, even against really less than top running backs.

It is the same thing every year.  You could see how bad our Special Teams were today, without a coach as over 100 of our rivals have, even though Mark Richt spends every G-Day Game, not even bothering to practice Special Teams.  No wonder in game situations they cannot compete.  And, we played no stars on Special Teams, but walk-ons, in this trophy for everyone we adhere to something higher than winning Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program.

Nice day to drive our new vehicle.  The crowd was slight.  Enjoyed the ride up and the ride back.

We have a lot to work on to fix all these 29 inexplicable losses these latest 7 years, and 3 of those just last season.

We’re missing something.

I cannot wait to hear the interviews of Mark Richt, bragging on the team in today’s G-Day Game.

 

Especially whomever his favorite is at QB 2015.

I did not see a QB today ready to play top teams in the nation.

 

I saw quarterbacks today who are not ready.  Does that really surprise anyone, when we spent the whole entire wasted year last year watching a guy chosen as favorite who could not throw the ball farther than 4 yards – kind of floating.

Keith Marshall, whom Field and Street proclaims is back ! , did not play.

 

There is just something missing from our program after 2007 here.

2015 promises to be more of the same – no fire.

 

I saw no fire today from us.  Everyone tells us how great Leonard Floyd is, but he did not play either.

Sony Michel did not play, as well.

We actually were not afraid 1 whole entire running play today, to run Nick Chubb.

 

There is no fire in this team, except for fans who say you cannot say that about a listless lacking fire coach and his team mimicking him, exuding the same listlessness and lacking fire persona of our coach.

We recruit well.

Maybe we can get another # 9 recruiting class 2016 ?

So we can waste all that talent too.

It’s going to be a long season, and inexplicable losses.  If we play a top team away from Athens, we will lose.  We will lose to far lesser teams than us too.

I predict another 9-4 for 2015-2016.  Or, 9-5 if we play Alabama twice.  It’s a 15-game season again this season for the top teams.

We average 9 wins.

We have been averaging MORE than 4 losses a season after 2007.

We have no hope of SEC Championship.

What a beautiful day on our gorgeous campus!

I wanted Brice Ramsey or Jacob Park last year.  I wanted Faton Bauta before I wanted to see Hutson Mason.  We have not prepared any of them from what I have seen.  All 3 are very good quarterbacks.  If Mark Richt announced who his favorite is, and he has already made up his mind as always anyway, then the other 2 would instantly leave, or should.

That is why he plays this game with you.

You try to back him up on this.

The coach knows who his favorite is.

He will play him no matter what, anyway.

This is a ruse that Jacob Park is being given a shot at QB 2015.

It’s Brice Ramsey with Faton Bauta his back-up.

 

We will see Jacob Park against ULM and against Southern.  That will be his year.

Brice Ramsey will learn under fire how to set his feet and then make any throw, and not before.  His attempts at getting the ball downfield when he does not step into the throw were on display again today and they were not pretty wounded ducks, over throws, and should have been interceptions.

 

I understand that Jacob Park made a score of 100 on his test of his knowledge of the 2015 play book.

 

Pick a damn guy already and teach him how to be a Quarterback.

Practice Special Teams and that includes especially 2016 Spring G-Day Game.  And, get them a damn coach.

Quit losing 29 games in just 7 seasons.

GATA.

Get some fire.

And, cease with all this I am afraid someone will get hurt bullshit Mark Richt.

We’re not ready.

Anyone at the game today knows that Mark Richt, and that includes you – not that you give a shit.

G-Day Spring Game 2015 promises more of the same mistakes Mark Richt makes EVERY G-Day game such as not even trying to practice in game conditions NET PUNTING or Kick-Offs ?

Fans such as I and all the rest of us get so excited for G-Day game every year.  This year is no exception with so much lost off last year’s disappointing 3 losses all 3 to far lesser-talented teams than our own.  One of the banes of our program recently, after such a great start by Mark Richt here to begin with at Special Teams, is our horrible Special Teams’ showing again 2014.  2014 does not need to be labeled 2014-2015 season because well, we did not play any game in 2015.  Did we ?  We played in the Belk Bowl 98 miles NORTH in Charlotte.  Only 3 SEC teams played their bowl game before us.  What does that tell you ?

Every G-Day game, Mark Richt despite our weak ass Special Teams for years now, plays the ENTIRE GAME with NO PRACTICE of Special Teams.

Like they do not matter.

Like they are unimportant.

Like what we are doing is fine enough.

Or, like we play NO STARS on any of our Special Teams like all of our opponents do, and like we do not give a shit, except for a trophy for everyone, so all walk-ons get to play Special Teams.

This is what we’ve been doing.

Every G-Day Game the same exact format of NO SPECIAL TEAMS.

Excuse me, we do not even have a Special Teams’ Coach.  Over 100 other major colleges ALL have a Special Teams coach, and by the way, damn it all, they play their stars on Special Teams.

So, as we gear up for G-Day Game after tomorrow on a beautiful not raining Saturday, I leave you with this thought

again

that once again 2015, there will be NO SPECIAL TEAMS play.

Some damn freaking “GAME” that is, eh ?

2014 :

# 83 net punting – we’re not going to practice this, yet we can’t cover.  Can we ?  # 13 in SEC.

No need to practice this, is there ?

None in the world I can see.

# 59 blocked kicks allowed – we’re not going to practice this, either.  We do not even know how to line up for a kick to stop the opponents from blocking them.  It’s ridiculous.  How in the living hell can a supposed “top team” be # 83 net punting and # 59 blocked kicks allowed, and not even practice this in game conditions ‘Tween The Hedges all of us watching and evaluating our ability to cover on our punts, or even line up for a kick to prevent opponents from taking advantage of us in what makes up at least one-third of the “GAME” of football ?

# 36 Kick-Off Returns – and all of that by TGII early and none thereafter.  We have no clue how to put guys back there in position to field kick-offs who even know what to do when they get the damned ball at the 11-yard line.  They call fair catch.  Good Lord, Mark Richt.  Is it not obvious we are way behind the 8-ball on ALL Special Teams, sir ?

Or, you just do not give a shit ?

Which is it ?

# 24 Punt Returns

# 25 Punt Returns Defense

We do not establish ourselves as a program who understands just how friqin’ important Special Teams are.  We are satisfied being # 25.  We do not go out and attempt to strive hard to either return punts nor defend punts.  We lose game after game at these two every year.  It’s the same old bullshit for Mark Richt on punt returns and punt returns defense.  We make no effort to establish this as a priority to be the very best at either.  No effort.  No priority.  And, now the day after tomorrow, no game condition practice of it.

Like it does not matter.

The freaking hell it does not matter.

Why do we lose all these games to lesser-talent teams ?  Because we play Special Teams nowadays, these latest 7 years of frustrating inexplicable losses, like it is unimportant.

Don’t we ?

Isn’t that why we do not practice Special Teams with our atrocious Special Teams, any G-Day Game any more here under Mark Richt.

It’s bullshit.

So, while we focus on who our quarterback is and having only 5 returning starters on either side of the ball, I leave you with this one thought for the G-Day Game :

Why is it that we fail to even try to practice in game conditions ,Special Teams, at our Annual G-Day Game ?

http://stats.ncaa.org/rankings/ranking_summary?academic_year=2015.0&division=11.0&game_high=N&org_id=257&ranking_period=72&sport_code=MFB&team_individual=T

The answer is because Mark Richt is afraid of injuries.

Afraid.

Football Coach.

Afraid.

Field Street Forum has an interesting strategy. In today’s “forum” he says Keith Marshall RETURNS ! Exclamation point. That is not what Buck Belue says, sir. Or, anyone else. UGA “4-headed monster” at TB

Comments : OFF

 

http://www.fieldstforum.com/

 

Excuse me sir, but if you have something say, then we are allowed sir to reply to your musings.  Get that ?

 

I am not against your site, or your opinions, or any of your articles.  I have read them all since you started.

 

We deserve to reply, and you need our input on what you are saying.

 

Either that, or you MISS everything we point out.

 

What ?

 

We are supposed to go to a one-sided site and study your every word ?

 

We are not to ask questions, sir ?

 

We are not to point out anything ?

 

I do not believe that the proper headline is that GURshall has returned.

 

I, for one, expected him not to have to endure all these four (4) injuries.  We all love the man and hope for his return.

Clearly, he is NOT back, sir.

 

He is this year like he was last year.  Isn’t he ?

 

He gets a medical redshirt year, and he will need it to go to the NFL.  I expected with his Dad and Mom, that he would be a shoe-in for the NFL.  Then, we began hearing about Todd Gurley II.  More and more, we heard about TGII.  Then, it was known TGII would surpass Keith Marshall, injuries or not.  Then, they hit the campus together.

 

Todd Gurley II is gone now.

 

Keith Marshall has a lot of years left for us yet.

 

Can we please cease sir with the pressure added to him to do more than play games for us ?

 

We have misused him since his arrival.  We force him to play the same plays TGII was going to run, if he were to have played that play too.  They are entirely different running backs.  There is really no similarity at all between them.

 

One more point sir.  We have an entire stable of running backs, and you left out significant proven great things expected of them here, running backs.  And, you did so in elevating others and completely left off our entire stable.  It’s just not right, sir.

 

Like your site with COMMENTS : OFF.  It is just not right, sir.

 

I have no idea what goes through your mind writing such a headline story as you do today sir.

 

It’s as one-sided as your site, sir.

 

If you have some aversion to hearing what others may say, close your site down sir.

 

If you do not like one of our running backs, then say it !

 

I truly do not appreciate for the players sir, that you left-off what you left-off, and that you emphasize your personal favorites to boot.  I believe that there are fans of every player on our team’s roster.

 

You list all these running backs for us, and leave off such significant others, sir.

 

Ones who have produced MORE than Keith Marshall.

 

And, Keith Marshall does not need to have you hurry him along and come back NOT READY AS HE CLEARLY IS BY ALL ACCOUNTS except for your headline today sir that he is back exclamation point.

 

You owe the other running backs, and Keith Marshall, an apology, sir.

 

Get your media guide out, sir.  Maybe that will assist you in naming a list of all our running backs ?

 

Or, come clean on what it is you ARE saying when you name all our running backs, and leave off others ?

 

Life, sir, is give and take.

 

I have no problems with you having an opinion.  Just be man enough to stand up and say it.

 

And, be man enough to encourage everyone to share their thoughts on your “forum.”

 

I have been on the Internet since I was a student at The University of Georgia.  The word forum connotates discussion, sir.  The idea sir, is that you speak, we read, and we reply to your reverie, sir.

 

Your ruminations in this case, sir, come across as well – just wrong.

 

We have a lot of areas for improvement to shed all these on-going inexplicable losses every year.  The salient significant one being that our fan base cease to believe that only their opinion matters, and they think they must say only the good, and disregard all these bad losses every year.

 

I believe we as a fan base, put too much emphasis on a player to his detriment and to our team’s detriment, and to the detriment of the other players at his position.

 

This brings us down as a program.

 

We have to fix this.

 

Your forced “4-headed monster” is a farce.  We have Nick Chubb, whom our coaches saw fit to really not even play until the others were doing nothing.  Then, we played him every play nearly every game.  Had we played him on all those numerous occasions when Todd Gurley II took the play off, Nick Chubb would have won the Heisman Trophy already, and you know it.  He is the only running back we rely upon.  There has been, and is no “4-headed monster,” sir.

 

“4-head monster,” my ass.

 

Forum my ass.

 

http://www.fieldstforum.com/2015/04/08/keith-marshall-returns !

 

A forum, sir, is an open place where opinions are shared, sir.  Everyone in one open public place, sir.

 

An Internet forum,  is an online discussion site where we all can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.  Sometimes in a thread on an Internet forum sir, you agree or disagree with that which is said.

 

And, sometimes you have something to add to that which someone has said.

 

Each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish to, sir.

 

Your site is not a forum, sir.

 

Keith Marshall has not returned exclamation point, sir.

 

We have no “4-headed monster” as you define it, sir.

 

You sir, are just plain wrong.

 

Aren’t you, sir ?

 

About everything in this pontification on Keith Marshall, whom it is you refer to as our “4-headed monster” and everyone you left off.

 

Aren’t you, sir ?

 

You have to fix this.

 

Ok ?

 

I have posted on the Internet daily since 1977.  I have run a BBS since 1977 with multiple access on a PC I built myself, sir.  There are always replies to these forums, sir.

 

I believe that Faton Bauta is a great running back for us, who also happens to have a good arm.  He has proven both sir.  He knows the plays, and is recognized as an Academic Genius.  He is a punishing runner who holds on to the ball, and has been misused by this staff.

 

Roster Management.

 

Brendan Douglas needs to hold on to the football.  Now that he has a running back coaching him, instead of wide receiver, I expect him to be taught this lesson.  It is a learned skill.  3 points on the football.  He played in 150% more games just last season 2014, than Sony Michel did, sir.  Brendan Douglas, sir, also the year before in 2013 had the most games played for us and was our most accomplished running back 2013 besides Todd Gurley II and J.J. Green whom we transferred to Georgie tek because of our poor roster management.  You left him off somehow, and the slight does not go unnoticed by yours truly, sir.

 

What are you saying about Brendan Douglas ?

 

He was 2nd on the Depth Chart 2014 season, sir.

 

“4-headed monster,” sir ?

 

Isaiah McKenzie is an accomplished running back for us, sir; and, while he too needs to be taught by our now running backs’ coach who in fact was a running back and knows how to hold on to the football as a running back, you cannot name today as you have sir Wednesday 8 April 2015, any “4-headed monster” at running back and leave him out either, sir.

Quayvon Hicks is another misused running back for us you left off as well.  We misuse him as we misuse Keith Marshall, forcing Keith Marshall to run inside the tackles when his expertise is out in space.  We do not play Quayvon Hicks at all.  We prefer a trophy for everyone in our roster mismanagement so we stole his job for us and gave it to a guy Merritt Hall, who is not in the program and did not play a single game 2014 after being named as a walk-on stealing Quayvon Hicks’ job.

 

We bungle talent everywhere every year now.

 

No more so than at running back.

 

While we brag on the coach making these decisions, and his decisions, and his greatness, while in fact his roster mismanagement is nowhere more evident than at this running back position, sir.

 

Sony Michel is certainly an accomplished running back, too.  He only played in eight (8) games and wasted his redshirt year for that.  His carries were all in mop-up duty.  8 of should have been 15-game season for the top teams, which this time last year, you declared sir we were one of.  Wasted talent.

 

A.J. Turman is a heralded running back whose talent also has been totally wasted.  He is the 6th best football player in the state of Florida, no less.  Not at running back, but A.J. Turman is the 6th best overall player in the state of Florida.  4-Star Running Backs of this stature come along very rarely.  He is the complete running back with bruising blocking, soft hands, and punishing style.  We witnessed for example last G-Day Game both score touchdowns both running and catching.  A. J. Turman was recruited by us in 2012 and signed with us in 2013 to great fanfare, and has yet to carry the ball once.  Bullshit, is all I can say about this roster mismanagement as well. All at just the running back position you highlight today for us all, sir.

 

We have so much talent at running back, wasted talent – every single man, that not one (0) nada running backs would sign with us this 2015 year until the night before Signing Date when really a wide receiver, Tae Crowder, was first recruited by us.  Our coach will jerk him around, like he did J.J. Green – moving him around too from position to position until finally his opportunity here, as with these others, has come and gone as well.

 

B.J. Emmons the 7th best running back in the nation, looking at all these who really none of them have even been given a fair shot at running back here, has said he fills the bill for next season for us.

 

And, I am quite certain his career here will also be marred by our coach’s roster mismanagement here too of him.  I welcome your reply here on this real forum where everyone who has ever said anything here is instantly heard by all worldwide Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Fans.

We do not value running backs.  We have a wealth of talent at running back, and not one of them was picked-out even to be The Man at Running Back.  Had we given Nick Chubb even a fair shot at it to begin last year while Todd Gurley II stood the sidelines, Nick Chubb would’ve already won the Heisman Trophy.

 

As for your bullshit “4-headed monster” at tailback for us, you sir are a DISNEYdawgs.com poster of a DISNEYdawgs.com site where ONLY your opinion is ever heard.

 

At least Buck Belue tells it like it is.

 

You sir can kiss my ass about your so-called “4-headed monster” at TB for us, your so-called “forum,” and about all those you left off your “4-headed monster” at TB for us, and especially proclaiming that Keith Marshall is you say only sir back.

 

You are full of shit.

Georgia Bulldogs’ Football 2015 is # 15 in most of the preseason polls. “There’s plenty of talent across the roster, as usual, but I do have my usual concerns about this team’s toughness—mental and physical. It’s an ongoing issue under coach Mark Richt, and the one thing that has kept them from being a national title contender. I don’t see it changing any time soon. ” We adhere to something here more important than winning Mark Richt ?

Although our non-conference slate is cupcake city 2015, we take on both of the top teams from The SEC West Alabama and Auburn.  And, while The SEC East has been down for a long time now compared to The SEC West, we have failed to capitalize on this opportunity with disappointing losses heaped upon more disappointing losses to less talented teams in our own division.  Poor teams beating us in our division has been a staple now for us.  It’s a trend others nationally do not see us shedding anytime soon.

We return 6 Offensive Starters from last season and 6 Defensive Starters from last season – about half the team returns – because we had so many redshirt seniors last season.

Brian Schottenheimer was a below average NFL Offensive Coordinator for the last decade and accepted this demotion to the same position at Georgia for Mark Richt in college football he used to hold in the NFL.

Certainly the lack of success of his offense with the Rams and the Jets had, is well documented :

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2322397-new-georgia-oc-brian-schottenheimer-is-a-high-risk-high-reward-hire

We failed to name a Special Teams’ Coach again 2015, despite the utter lack of success we’ve put forth recent seasons as well.  This despite the fact that more than 100 other college football coaches feel that they do need a Full Time Special Teams’ Coach.  And, this is in the very face of our disasters on Special Teams nowadays.

Defensive Coordinator Jeremy Pruitt left national champion Florida State to take this job with Mark Richt, and what we’ve learned about that is that this time last year, we lost our entire defense and those who were here did not do much, such as notably Leonard Floyd.  We chased quarterbacks, but stood idly by while we watched their quarterbacks out perform our quarterback every game last year nearly.

And, the real issue Mark Richt himself, remains as unsettled these most recent 7 years now, that it still begs the question what happened in the preseason polls 2008 that has left Mark Richt without that fire in his belly he once did have when he first got here ?

3 other states only produce more talent than this state, but Mark Richt continues to put forth dumbass decisions on not only the roster management, discipline, and motivation, but more importantly an utter wellspring of devastatingly disappointing losses upon losses not only away from Sanford against teams making the Top 25, but also all the mounting losses to lesser teams.  Not just lesser teams, but teams far less talented than we have.

We ran the ball too much last year and did not mix it up at all with deep passes.  This brought defenses to stack the box against us, allowing less talented teams to embarrass us.

Athlon Sports steps outside the preseason 2015 college football polls and notes the teams with the MOST TALENT discounting redshirt seniors and looks only at the 2015 roster as made up of recruiting ranking averages other than the redshirt seniors.  I think this is incredibly wrong to leave out all redshirt seniors in their averages as these are frequently in college very powerful players in college football, but it does show even just looking at the average rankings of our 4 most recent recruiting rankings that there is no way that Georgia should have lost as many games as we have these most recent seasons.  And, in fact the losses are ALL to far lesser talented teams than our own.  What does this show ?  That we have squandered talent.  That is what this shows.  It also shows that we recruit extremely well.  Results for the talent on hand, is what is missing.  Why is that ?

Phil Steele also steps outside the preseason 2015 college football polls to predict not that he is saying that Georgia will be # 10 in the preseason poll, but that he thinks the AP Poll will rank Georgia # 10 preseason this year.
