While 10-2 is NOT a prediction for the 15-game season for the top teams obviously I still like Pete Fiutak’s name and he damn sure nails the most important game for Kirby is the vols’ game. I wish he had not mentioned the national championship as that is simply NOT my goal and NEVER has been.
It’s not that I do not want one I do in ANY poll but what is really important to me is that we do what we are capable of get to a big bowl game both teams ranked at the top of the Final AP Poll and be on the national stage everyone watching us.
That vols’ game really cost us last year. Kirby just has to beat the vols this season. I was one of the very few who felt that we had the better team against Florida notwithstanding our coach’s desire to scuttle the game at the key most important position QB and not only start a guy who had NOT one single snap at QB all season long but left him in despite being a running QB without a single call from Mark Richt for him to even option let alone a straight designed run play for him. All week prior Mark Richt had said to the players to keep it a secret and DID NOT PRACTICE while of course having an off-week too Florida most certainly did. Then his chosen QB at the site where Mark Richt ended-up for us loser 11 of his 16 games there threw 4 interceptions and never was even yanked by Mark Richt. He didn’t give a shit.
I am not a fan of Jim McElwain and do not consider him a good coach at all and his offense sucks. He should have lost 5 games last year.
Mark Richt’s 2 BCS Bowl Game Wins were over # 23 Final AP Poll and 5-loss FSU in 2002 after beating 5-loss unranked Arky in The SEC Championship Game and over # 19 Final AP Poll hapless Hawai’i in 2007 and note NEITHER of those Bowl Wins were in his last entire 8 years of frustratingly losing to nearly every top 15 team he played sprinkled with a dozen losses to unranked teams averaging 4 losses per season these same last 8 years.
Florida lost 4 games and should have been 5. I felt we had the better team and that our coach was a better coach than Jim McElwain. He did NOT show it all week prior to the game telling our team to TAKE THE WEEK OFF from practice then starting at QB a guy whom he had NOT given 1 snap at QB all season long.
Then left him in despite 4 interceptions.
Kirby played us and he saw first hand that Greyson Lambert is awful. He is afraid to throw the ball downfield fearing an interception. You can NOT win with that strategy in big-time college football nor the NFL. It’s a recipe for disaster and this Spring’s G-Day Game was MORE OF THE SAME for ALL to see including again Kirby.
Mark Richt did not even play him in the Florida game.
The Big News is all the big-time players Kirby has coming-in now that the Final Exams are getting completed.
Yes we lost a ton of top talent after last year.
Yes our fan base remains fragmented wanting to whine about Greg McGarity firing Mark Richt half a year later nearly this morning.
10-2 is NOT a prediction for the season.
It’s just not.
I remain concerned as everyone knows about Kirby not preparing his Starting QB by allowing him to have even one snap with the # 1 unit all Spring. Brice Ramsey is a better QB than Greyson damn Lambert.
We fired the previous coach for such bullshit.
I was the main ringleader in firing Mark Richt.
Everyone knows that.
That’s why tens of thousands daily come to my blog to read what I have to say.
Because they damn well know I the one who understood and correctly called it.
No my posts are not found on the dawgbone. Well they have been last year several times. Mr. Blue feels that Mark Richt walks on water and refused to have posts which said otherwise. He was proven wrong. Kirby addresses our fragmented fan base daily.
I could give a shit if Mark Richt wins the God Damn Coastal Division of the ACC.
I care about 2016 for Kirby.
I believe we can go 12-2 which is a LOT better than averaging 4 losses the last 8 years half of which Mark Richt was NOT even ranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25.
WTF is 10-2 ?
We have played in 15 bowl games under the previous coach and not a one on the national stage everyone watching us. His best wins over FSU 2002 and Hawai’i 2007. I believe we know who we will play in a bowl game. I think we will be the more talented team and will be favored to win that bowl game right now.
That’s a win.
We certainly are NOT winning The SEC Championship which Mark Richt did not win for the 3rd longest stretch of not winning The SEC Championship in our 83-year history a complete DECADE now. We can not beat Alabama 2016. Alabama actually lost MORE than we did off their team but they are such much more deep than we. They got a commitment from the # 2 dual-threat QB in the nation last night for 2017.
So while Mark Richt was NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll HALF his last entire 8 years here while Kirby was NATIONAL CHAMPION HALF his last entire 8 years all of which he called the plays on Defense I have expectations for my beloved Georgia Bulldogs to go 12-2 this season certainly 11-3.
There is NO STRETCH to that.
All it really requires is to get Jacob Eason snaps with the # 1 unit this Fall
“If Georgia is going to be a real player it needs a bigger star and difference-maker at quarterback than Greyson Lambert. Jacob Eason was the star recruit of the 2016 class. He looked the part in spring ball and while everyone’s trying to hold off on anointing him as the child who shall lead them to a national title he’s really really good.” Campus Insiders Pete Fiutak.
