Strength of Schedule in Football shows, in fact, that we have played the # 42 Strength of Schedule 2014 to-date, according to the Official NCAA SoS and now we play Georgie tek # 46 SoS in 3 days’ time.
Click : 2014-2015, FOOTBALL, FBS, MISC REPORTS, TOUGHEST SCHEDULE
Looking at the schedule pre-season I figured South Carolina and Florida would be better than 6-win teams 2014. I figured Georgie tek’s SoS was worse than our own and it is.
Every year, there are other SoS listings updated through the latest games like the Official NCAA Toughest Schedules’ Rankings. NCAA always has their own Official NCAA SoS for you as well.
Other observations from the Official NCAA SoS is that Florida State has played the # 51 SoS 2014. Duh. For the whole entire season, only 53-47 is the combined won/lost record of all 2014 opponents for FSU. That includes Florida’s 6-win season and does not include the ACC CHUMPionship Game yet, but it will for the Play-Off Selection Committee prior to their decisions. They told us they will weigh this.
Florida’s SoS is # 48 and only a 6-win season. Horrible showing, right ?
Southern California’s SoS is only # 53 and they have another 4-Loss Season.
Southern California has the Most NFL Draft Picks in the Mark Richt Era 2001-2014 and Mark Richt is 2nd best nationally. He also is 2nd best nationally in average recruiting rankings 2001-2014 with his average # 9 while Georgie tek averages # 52.
Phil Steele has an UGA page updated weekly :
It shows that Hutson Mason has 1825 Passing Yards on the season for 11 games, losing like last year to unranked Nebraska, losing this year to unranked 6-win South Carolina and losing to unranked 6-win Florida who fired their coach the week after he beat Mark Richt to drop Mark Richt’s record against our # 1 Rival to 5-9. Hard to feel good about yourself with a losing record that poor against your # 1 Rival.
Is there any question that Florida is a bigger Rival for us than Georgie tek is for us ?
Now, Georgie tek does consider us their # 1 Rival by a long wide margin with no other Rival at all. We’re the only team mentioned in their Fight Song, which is the Most Famous Fight song, nationally – maybe Internationally.
It promotes Poor Sportsmanship among the fan base at Georgie tek.
You have seen this all week on every blog.
Every blog where, like here, everyone’s posts are posted. We had one run on to this blog and brag they’d beat us 55-7.
He based this upon Florida’s rushing total against us 3 weeks’ ago.
He does not take into account they did well early only to have Hutson Mason again not stretch the field and failed to answer anything, sending the defense right back out there to bail his ass out to the tune of 31 unanswered points.
Unanswered points means that our offense failed to answer.
That’s what that means.
Last season, Hutson Mason did not lead the come-back against Georgie tek. In fact, he had another performance which could’ve lost us another game with him as our Starting Quarterback losing to yet another unranked team. It was Todd Gurley II who scored all the consecutive points against Georgie tek. They got off to a big lead and then Todd Gurley II put us on his back.
The score was nothing to 20 for Georgia tek with 35 seconds remaining in the 1st Half last year because Hutson Mason forgot to show-up. He does that. He is not like little Aaron Murray who called his own number 51 percent of the total plays. He is not like little Aaron Murray who had 10 percent of his plays result in interceptions, fumbles and sacks – all at the very worst moment, either. Hutson Mason suffers from trying to minimize those MISTAKES by not being like that, and a direct result, has only 1825 Passing Yards on the season.
Ray Goff and Jim Donnan all averaged more Passing than Hutson Mason has.
For the team, including the damn few plays either Brice Ramsey or Faton Bauta have been allowed to even play in the games Hutson Mason has started and played every minute of – not preparing a Quarterback for 2015 – since 2014 is shot to hell in a hand basket with the losses to 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina 2014 already. For the team now 2014, Mark Richt’s chosen quarterbacks & including Todd Gurley II’s longest pass play of the 2014 season for us, have thrown for a grand total of 2,205 yards only. This on top of his performance against Nebraska 2013 season, he also lost to an unranked team.
2,205 yards passing 2014 for UGA. Who would’ve thunk it ?
We could’ve taken advantage of our talent and especially at running back by throwing the football downfield, and stretching the field in so doing 2014. Never in the history of man, has there ever been a more wasted season on that front for us this season.
1825 yards passing is all Hutson Mason has to show for 2014.
Other than his
Todd Gurley II, you recall led the comeback against Georgie tek, falling behind 20 to nothing, scoring 4 Touchdowns against Georgie tek, including having the ball on every single play of BOTH OVERTIMES.
For the season, Hutson Mason has 38 rushes for 23 yards.
He just isn’t a college quarterback.
Mark Bradley says he is.
In fact, yesterday, Mark Bradley AJ-C said that Hutson Mason is A GREAT QUARTERBACK.
In the last 20 years, including Ray Goff and Jim Donnan years in addition to the Mark Richt era, this is the most God-Freaking-Awful Starting Quarterback other than Joe Tereshinski III in 2006 and 2009 with Joe Cox.
Both were, ALSO, 5th year Senior Starters for Mark Richt who like Hutson Mason NEVER GOT ANY snaps to prepare him, either.
Might as well have played Brice Ramsey all season on that point because Hutson Mason did not show me anything last year either, not against Georgie tek, not against Kentucky and not against Nebraska – just like Florida and South Carolina this year.
In fact, it has been a wasted year 2014 because Hutson Mason did not stretch the field all season to take advantage of all these running backs.
Never so tentative a starting quarterback is the damn history of the game.
I do give him credit for not making the myriad of mistakes that Aaron Murray did.
Unfortunately, he WASTED OUR YEAR, just as Joe Cox in 2009 and just as Joe Tereshinski III in 2006.
At least Joe Tereshinski III got YANKED in 2006, sat down, sent to the pines, lost his starting job. 2009, once Joe Cox even with the flu on top of his chronic throwing shoulder, was the only QB to play in the Okie State game who did not make the AP Poll Top 25 that season even with their win over Mark Richt (Joe Cox), 2009 was shot to hell.
Just like 2006.
2010, Mark Richt STARTED a redshirt freshman Quarterback.
2014, he did not, and has not and will not.
Brice Ramsey kind of shot himself in the foot last Saturday aiming the ball on a short crossing route, getting his 1st interception. It could not have been worse for Brice Ramsey, just when he was looking so comfortable back there and threw the deep passes with such aplomb.
It does highlight the difference between Hutson Mason and Aaron Murray and Brice Ramsey, now too.
All off-season, the seed has been planted now in the back of everyone’s mind fresh off seeing him from our seats on an easy throw, take something off the throw and just give the ball away. His interception and all the fumbles by folks Mark Richt had to expect fumbles from – I certainly did – and we ended-up against a 1-AA team with no plus average on the turnovers’ ratio against Charleston Southern University.
Too bad, really. Should have been + 3.
If we were, we’d be # 1 nationally in turnover ratio instead of # 2.
So, after it was 7 to nothing last year against Georgie tek, Hutson Mason
1st went 3 and out, and we punted, which they converted to 10 to nothing FG.
Then, on our next possession with the ball, Hutson Mason threw an Interception. Georgie tek promptly took it in for 17 to nothing. Then, to add fuel to the fire, Hutson Mason then after it was 17 to nothing, fails again to get the 1st down and we punted AGAIN to Georgie tek, who promptly again put up ANOTHER FIELD GOAL to extend their lead to 20 nothing.
I was pissed.
You were satisfied, you run in here and TRY to share with me.
Yeah, right you were.
Damn friqin’ right you were.
Then, Hutson Mason FAILED AGAIN to get the 1st Down and AGAIN we punted.
THIS is what Hutson Mason did against Georgie tek last year.
It should have been 35 to nothing with 38 seconds remaining in the 1st half.
THAT is what happened last year.
Then, Todd Gurley II willed his team to Victory, scoring 4 TD.
I remember thinking when it was 20 to nothing at their lousy as hell stadium, named for college drop-out Bobby Dodd (who dropped-out in college at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville), that we were fortunate our Defense held Georgie tek to only 20 of their should have been 35 to nothing lead.
Todd Gurley II damn sure certainly took advantage of it.
So, the writing was on the wall last year about this Hutson Mason Experiment of Mark Richt – just like his Joe Cox Experiment and his Joe Tereshinski II Experiments as 5th year senior starting Quarterbacks for Mark Richt with ZERO experience, un-played, unproven, and frankly proven to be exactly the opposite of that which Mark Richt tried to quell our concerns with of his glowing praise.
Mark Bradley wrote that bullshit piece so that Mark Richt would talk with him, after his earlier salvos of “it’s Mark Richt’s fault; it’s his team.”
I have no such requirement as I like you read the quotes of Mark Richt. I read every one. And, I watch the video clips and listen to him on the radio.
So, I know Mark Richt and Mike Bobo are BOTH big-time disappointed in Hutson Mason.
Still, he is the only one played. The only one all season. And, NO ONE PREPARED for 2015.
That, since 2014 has been OVER for a month now against Florida.
Bullshit 6-win Florida, who FIRED their coach the week AFTER beating Mark Richt to extend their # 1 Rival Advantage against him to 5-9 Mark Richt vs Florida.
Included all these wins by INFERIOR Florida teams.
Georgie tek is an INFERIOR TEAM.
How inferior ?
# 9 recruits vs # 52 recruits.
2007 we had a similar schedule strength as we have 2014, but our Quarterback managed to throw 10 interceptions and had 3 fumbles, unlike Hutson Mason, and also was sacked 15 times. This is what Hutson Mason does NOT do. Among other plays Hutson Mason does NOT do, such as throwing the ball downfield.
He prefers the 4-yard dinky dunk down pass.
It is ALL he looks for, staring the receiver down, and never going through his progressions despite the criticism ALL YEAR by Mark Richt and by Mike Bobo.
But, rue me for saying the same.
And, you. You too say the same.
2007, we lost to a 6-6 South Carolina who did not even go to a damn bowl game.
2007, we lost to a poor vols’ team, again neither with anywhere near the talent we have, and the vols had a BLOW-OUT win over us 14-35.
I cannot explain the 10 losses by Mark Richt to 10 teams who even with their win over Mark Richt that season, failed to make EITHER the AP or Coaches’ Polls.
That blow-outs like 3 weeks’ ago against Florida and in 2007 to the vols would also be common occurrences nowadays, is just hard to understand given the level of talent we have in the Mark Richt Era, which has not dropped-off at all.
We just take teams lightly, fumble, throw interceptions, get sacked, get blown-out against bitter damn rivals, and just fail to even show-up. We go 3 and out and wait for the suspect defenses we have, to bail our asses out. And, wait for our not so special, special teams to bail us out. Sad, how our offense is actually MARKED WITH THIS.
I do not understand it.
I certainly EXPECT it.
But, I don’t grasp how in the Hell we continue to go out there in big games and fail to convert on 3rd Downs and instead brag on the friqin’ Starting Quarterback.
It’s Bullshit of the highest order.
Hutson Mason beat Georgie tek last year ?
Bullshit he did.
In addition and in proving the 2nd best # 9 Average Recruiting Class of Mark Richt 2001-2014, Mark Richt ALSO has the 2nd best 81 NFL Draft Picks. This verifies the Average Recruiting Rankings. Southern California, who has the highest Average Recruiting Ranking 2001-2014, is # 1 in NFL Draft Picks too. 83 NFL Draft Picks, Southern California 2001-2014.
Georgie tek average recruiting ranking # 52 for 2001-2014 has only 29 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014.
Georgia has 81 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014 :
There is no excuse for Georgie tek to be ahead of us 20 to nothing, and frankly it should have been 35 to nothing. We were fortunate, no thanks to Hutson damn Mason.
With all this talent.
No different from 2007 and no different from 2002 either.
2002 we got a BCS Bowl Win over a 5-Loss FSU # 24.
2007 we got a BCS Bowl Win over # 19 Hawai’i.
That’s IT for BCS Bowl Wins Mark Richt Era.
All this talent, and frankly NOTHING.
Not a damn freaking thing.
Remember 2002, since we covered 2007 now ?
2002, we LOST to a Florida team who did not even make the Coaches’ Poll Top 25 even after Ron Zook beat Mark Richt. Mark Richt’s Offense that year failed to convert a single 3rd Down Conversion. 0-13.
This is WHO we are. This is WHAT we do.
2014, it’s 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina.
It’s frankly so bad that Todd Gurley II said he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre.
In this week’s latest College Football Poll prior to the last week’s games of this college football regular season, we remain # 9 CFP, while we welcome # 16 Georgie tek, who is ranked WORSE than Auburn at # 15.
Who we blew out.
Forgot to take out Todd Gurley II, but BLEW them OUT.
There are so many teams ahead of prior to the last game of the regular season, that even a blow-out over # 1 Alabama were we to back-in to that game by Arkansas beating Missouri who has played the # 56 Strength of Schedule to Arkansas # 1 SoS 2014, that we cannot possibly be judged in the Top 4 teams in America with these continued on-going BAD LOSSES to not 1 but 2 teams who are 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina :
# 42 SoS UGA
# 1 SoS Arkansas
# 56 SoS Missouri
# 46 SoS Georgie tek
# 54 SoS FSU
# 45 SoS Ohio State
# 48 SoS Florida a 6-win season, imagine that ?
So, we had an easy schedule and LOST to 2 crappy-ass teams.
Excuse me for calling it as it is ladies and gentlemen.
I am NOT happy.
Do NOT feel this is a great season.
It is what I said it would be.
Isn’t it ?
Don’t want to read my posts ? Then what the friq are you doing in here ?
Afraid I am RIGHT ?
Sure I am.
2015, with no Quarterback prepared and without Todd Gurley II whom we WASTED as we WASTED KNOWSHON MORENO, will be MORE of the same.
Will it not ?
One Mark Richt Apologist in the last several weeks remarked to me that I should wait until 2016.
Cannot even get 2014 over, and forget wait until 2015.
2016 he says to me.
Such a damn cushy job Mark Richt has.
Cushy as Hell job.
Satisfied with all this LOSING and being mediocre.
We have not played ANY OF THE TOP 14 TEAMS IN THE LATEST CFP.
If Missouri loses as we all hope, and they might lose to a 6-win team, and if we beat Georgie tek and Alabama beats Auburn, we will not have played even a single team in the College Football Play-Off Poll Top 20.
Then, we hope to play Alabama.
We will NOT have beaten a single team in the Top 20 of College Football Play-Off Final Poll.
If we do beat Alabama, we’d have that one win. Clemson is not likely to remain ranked, Georgie tek is not likely to remain ranked, and Auburn is not likely to remain ranked. As it is, they will be at the tail-end of the Top 25, if at all.
I am NOT raining on our damn parade.
That happened at South Carolina and Florida.
Didn’t it ?
Wake-up and smell the damn roses.
I am NOT disappointed we’re # 9.
I am satisfied with that.
I am not satisfied with playing the # 42 SoS and losing to two 6-win teams.
I do not believe we have a chance in Hell of beating Alabama were Missouri to lose to a 6-win team – something we do around here REGULARLY nowadays, don’t we ?
Number # 9 ?
Who is the Play-Off Selection Committee going to pit us against in our Bowl Game ?
The BCS sure blew all that.
Told us we were # 3 team in 2002 and pitted us against 5-Loss # 24 FSU.
Told us we were the # 2 team in 2007, and pitted us against # 19 Hawai’i.
Bullshit BCS Bowl Game Wins.
Give us a team up there where we are.
I’d love to play Oregon as I am certain we’d beat them.
Let us play them.
Let us play # 2 Florida State !
We’d beat the shit out of Florida State.
Let us play TCU or Ohio State or Baylor.
But, we’d NEVER beat Alabama this year. Their passing game is too good and our passing game is piss poor.
Hutson Mason only has 5 fumbles this year, 15 sacks and 3 interceptions. Compared to what Matthew Stafford and Aaron Murray did, this IS GREAT !
Otherwise, no one will even invite Hutson Mason for an NFL look-see even.
He has proven beyond a shadow of the doubt, as Joe Tereshinski III and Joe Cox before him, that he isn’t getting any consideration. His career is over after the next games.
Never to be seen or heard from ever again, as neither Joe Tereshinski III or Joe Cox have been, either.
All 3 with head-scratching losses here, as well – as 3 so-far for Hutson Mason. 3 unranked teams.
You think Aaron Murray was the master at that ?
It’s been ongoing around here.
Hasn’t it ?
And, it has SHOT EVERY GREAT SEASON !
This year is NOT great.
Beat Alabama and it would be.
Don’t and it will not be.
And, we’d still say as in 2002 and 2007 that the reason we did not do what we could’ve those years, and this if we beat Alabama, is that we LOST to two 6-win teams.
Good Lord !
Everyone else BEAT THEM, but Mark Richt did NOT !
I knew this coming in.
It’s what we do.
YOU argued with ME and said it’s not, and that we ARE great.
Adjust your glasses, and say it’s almost as good as a XEROX.
When you’re not even in the top 25 won/lost records after 2007, and playing Alabama 2014 would pretty much assure Mark Richt of that sitting at # 22 as it is, you’re NOT GREAT.
I do not care what the friq you say.
There aren’t any excuses – so, quit wiggling in your panties trying to think of one or more, per usual.
We had the talent and we WASTED IT.
We had an off-season of NOTHING but BAD PRESS.
We followed that up with the players saying we took Florida lightly, to which Mark Richt replied to the players in the Press with : Shut-up !
Pretty much what you’ve said you told me, isn’t it ?
Did not shut-up the players, did it ?
Did it shut me up, either ?
18, 13, 91.
45, 4, 121.
We are # 18 Scoring Defense, # 13 rushing offense, # 91 Passing Offense.
Georgie tek # 45 Scoring Defense, # 4 rushing offense # 121 Passing Offense
It all boils down to what Hutson Mason does or does not do. If he plays like he did last year against Georgie tek, he should have lost last year.
We have a lot better defense than Georgie tek, and are as good a rushing offense.
Depends on what Hutson Mason does nor doesn’t do.
Play like he played against unranked Nebraska last year and as like he played against unranked 6-wins South Carolina and Florida this year, and he could again cost us the game.
It is what he does, when he does not bring his A-game, which he is quite inconsistent about.
What do I think Georgie tek is going to do against Georgia, Florida State and their bowl game ?
They lose all 3 I think. They will be so unranked before all this is over, no one will consider their year even remotely positive.
We have that with our win over # 15 Auburn, fixing to drop in the polls Saturday.
We both have 2 horrid losses to unranked teams they Duke and UNC and us USCe and Florida.
Moreover, the ACC is just a damned joke and always freaking has been.
Mackenzie Engram is great.
And, that is saying something for the talent on our Bulldogs’ team 2014.
The men are # 135 and the ladies # 21 :
Georgie tek # 124.
If you click on FBS MISC REPORT, ATTENDANCE
and, sort by column stadium capacity :
You will see we’re # 10 Sanford Stadium; but we have watched team after team after team in our own conference add to their stadiums while we stand firm while we too could fill a lot more seats, as they.
Jeff Sagarin has his ratings up, you might enjoy looking at the top 2 teams, including us and Alabama.
So, our schedule is weak, we have 9-2 and we have ruined the season with 2 bad losses.
Next up, Georgie tek – another team out-classed by our recruiting as verified by our NFL Draft Picks – who says all week every post I’ve read that they will beat us handily, when at their own house # 43 attendance to our Top 10 Attendance.
Georgie tek is on NCAA PROBATION in FOOTBALL all 2014, again.
