You were hired to beat Florida Kirby.
You were hired to be here and to get your best players ready and get them on the field playing cohesively like they have practiced together.
You were hired because your predecessor was constantly criticized for just not caring about his job of winning acting like there was something besides winning that he ultimately was judged on when he failed to play his best players.
You seem to be making some point to the press each day and to the players that the press is asking you about. You very much come across as stubborn Kirby.
Combative and stuck in your ways and unwilling to discuss even that just maybe you showed-up without the Offensive Experience to be head coach and without proper footing on special teams. If those 2 coordinators are any good at all then you’re also holding them back with your policies.
At this point all we really know is that you’re in charge and that we’re about # 75 team at every aspect of the game.
With very good talent you have not prepared and certainly are not getting on the field in practice or games you looked miserable as a team yesterday 45 to nothing.
You are trying to do too much detail everywhere when you should have been delegating your weaknesses to guys you hired who might have been ones who could cover your lack of experience in those aspects of the game.
I am not at all convinced having seen how you have dispatched your duties since November 28 the day of the game that you are ready to be a head coach after I listed you as one of a list I offered-up noting you did not have head coach experience and all the others did. In time at this point I am unsure you aren’t too head strong to listen to those trying to help you to learn your deficiencies.
Mark Richt called us noise. I sincerely believe you think we’re your mortal enemy. We’re only trying to assist having the temerity to simply ask you questions only to be bawled-out for even asking.
Tongue-lashing dressed-down and called-out on the carpet is not what an experienced coach or manager does in any field of endeavor each time someone simply enquires about what they perceive to be a good logical intelligent question when that is their job to ask such questions Kirby.
Looking back at those questions now they should have been asked and you sir should have tried to answer them not chew-out everyone who asks you something like you are a petulant child.
I think Butch Jones needs to go and I have been consistent on that too Kirby that he should have been before you beat him Saturday because he can not recruit and is all talk and has no idea how to coach a team but only to lie to the press.
At least you don’t do any of that Kirby.
Again you are expected to beat vols Saturday Kirby. Are we clear on that, Sir ?
Florida is not any good and has not been in a long time now. Their choice for head coach was poor. He isn’t a good head coach, either. He wanted Jacob Eason when inviting him there sent the wrong message to the quarterbacks he did have. You got Jacob Eason here Kirby. Then you have sent him out half-cocked against # 9 last year Ole Miss who is clearly # 9 this year again too. You wasted from January 12 to September 25. You also wasted from November 28 to January 12. There is no tomorrow, only today Kirby.
You are in a weak division and play a weak schedule Kirby.
You can not lose to Ole Miss, vols, Florida, Auburn…
If you thought you could say as Nick Saban 2007 losing before he made you defensive coordinator for 2008 that the first year does not matter, I have news for you. You’re not Nick Saban. You needed to be working hard at this job getting prepared for Ole Miss and you failed to do so to the tune of 45 to nothing. 7 times Mark Richt in his last 8 years lost by more than 3 TD. You accomplished that once already now after just 4 games and against a team whose talent averaged # 12 to your # 9 according to Scout.com of the last 5 years Kirby who with redshirt could’ve played yesterday.
Watching the game at Ole Miss on TV, I was reminded of what I have been telling you since you did show-up Kirby. We have glaring weaknesses across the board and you seem to stand-pat more than you do do something about them.
You better back-up and figure whom it is you want playing, and get those guys practicing with each other Kirby, Sir.
Your biggest problem is arguing with the press Kirby as this has consumed you for 8 entire months and counting when their questions were good ones had you addressed with them you might have learned what they were trying to tell you rather than be down 45 to nothing to a team you certainly should have been able to compete with.
You have dismissed their every question out-of-hand Kirby without addressing a single question ever to-date. What now ? Ignore them again ? Get the hair up on your neck again Kirby that they ask even again knowing full well they about to get their butts chewed-off again for even trying to ask you again Kirby ? Or, you get your way, and no one ever gets or even wants to ask you the hard questions you do nothing but duck ignore dismiss out-of-hand and then get all up in the air about steeling yourself that because they thought they could ask you now you definitely therefore will not do anything about that aspect of our # 75 football team ? Which one of these only 2 possible choices is it going to be Kirby ?
I can tell you this for certain Kirby and that is that what you have been doing, isn’t working, Sir.
You think all of us who devote so much time to your football team Kirby don’t care about our team ?
You’re making a ton of mistakes Kirby – again – the largest your bickering with the press about what you might do to improve the obvious weaknesses.
You spend all your time telling them they wrong and you right Kirby to the point you don’t do anything about the weakness out of spite for them asking you Kirby.
That’s what’s really happening. Surely you can see where we need work and what that should have been all along by now Game 5, right Kirby ?
Get some input Kirby. Make some changes, Sir.
Don’t keep up with this. It’s not working. Is it Kirby ?
Our problems around here are that we have been hiring athletics’ directors who have never coached tiddlywinks and ask them to help our coaching staffs in our 22 sports coach.
I am convinced you are not even listening to your Dear Old Dad either Kirby.
You are going about this all wrongly Kirby.
You should have realized that you needed to be here November 28 when you said you would find this your dream job. Now 10 months later you would have known you needed Jacob Eason taking all the snaps all Spring and Fall with the # 1 unit and would have had Ben Cleveland out there on the OL Brian Herrien and Elijah Holyfield catching passes with Mecole Hardman Jr. and all 3 running the ball behind Solomon Kindley.
These are all questions we tried to ask you Kirby.
I asked you if we shouldn’t have a few wide receiver sets with Dominick Sanders on Offense then yesterday I watched as Hugh Freeze did that exactly with one of his secondary.
Kirby you are not Hugh Freeze.
I asked about Charlie Woerner if he should not be playing some on Defense and certainly as wide-out.
Your wide receivers are all dropping the ball Kirby and have all season 10 percent of the time or more. Don’t you even notice that Kirby ? If you do why do you send the same ones back out there then and not try anyone different ? Excuse me Kirby, in your hidden private only you can see practices have any of these guys we keep asking you about actually held-on to the football when Jacob Eason threw it to them ? Oh, I see you haven’t had him throw to them in practice, so you don’t know. So you kick and scream at us for wanting to even try to ask you what we know before we try you are going to redress us for. I get it now, Kirby.
Kirby you have not taken up quickly to evaluation of your own 85 Scholarship Players. I told you to get Mitchell Wasson out there trying his leg and instead you miss another field goal. You miss more than half the field goals you try and neither of the 2 kickers – both whom were on Mark Richt’s previous teams – are neither one any good. I would have told both no scholarship because you have no leg. You have Kevin Butler. Kevin Butler did not tell you NEITHER has a leg Kirby ? Come on. I’m not stupid Kirby. You do not try Mitchell Wasson at all Kirby ? Explain to me why please, Sir ?
I am frustrated at your antics with the press when they try to ask you these questions and your resultant stubbornness to do anything about all our weaknesses because this guy or that one is a freshman.
2016 you get them 3 years if they are good. You had better recognize them or be like Mark Richt and play Knowshon Moreno only 2 years and not hand him the ball those 2 years in the Big Games.
We all have tried to suggest what we think are salient questions.
Instead of possibly being viewed as sagacious you dismiss everyone out-of-hand Kirby.
Well excuse me I think we’re all right on all of this Kirby.
Because now push-to-shove you have been forced to do that which we all have been asking since November 28.
Greg McGarity would not have gone to Jere Morehead the next day November 29 and asked to fire Mark Richt and hire you had you not told Greg McGarity the night before that yes it would be your dream job Kirby.
We’re just not getting it done Jere in football and I spoke to our alum Kirby who is the top assistant in the nation for 8 years now and he said it would be his dream to be our coach. Ok Greg. Go hire him if you think he is the best but shouldn’t we pony-up the money for a proven head coach since we are # 11 all-time in football wins ? They all started somewhere Jere. Well get a search firm Greg and let’s be sure. Ok Jere. Thank you.
We’re not getting any pressure on our opposing quarterbacks even Kirby. We look in good shape but even that does not mean that you act like you don’t have over two dozen guys on scholarship which you do have and refuse to get prepared Kirby. You give your starters a blow.
It is basic coaching that you must be able to evaluate talent quickly Kirby – not in game 5 of the season. Good Lord son a Pee Wee football coach can tell who his best players are – love at first sight.
Your bias against Freshmen is duly noted Kirby.
Nick Saban ? We can’t offer Nick Saban but Alabama can ? Urban Meyer no offer to hire ? All we can offer is some assistant who has not demonstrated that he can head coach a major college football program ? No red flags when he is given a job and doesn’t even show-up for it for 8 weeks and 4 days ?
I have been offered lots of jobs Kirby. If someone is given 5 times their current salary where they have already accomplished their goal 3 times previously and demands he finish number 4 national championship before he takes over our struggling not-up-to-par job here that sends red flags.
Jere Morehead and Greg McGarity were wrong to let you not even show-up for their most prestigious hire in their lifetimes for 8 weeks and 4 days’ time Kirby. You should know that inherently Kirby. You’ve been behind the 8-ball since you showed-up Kirby and have been too slow to determine your best players.
Jimbo Fisher Gary Patterson David Shaw Tom Herman – I listed a host of proven head coaches we could have hired and embraced you until you didn’t even show-up for 8 weeks and 4 days’ time Kirby. Then sir I have crawled all over your butt since about every decision you have made Kirby because it raised red flags to me Kirby. We can only offer non-head coaches at Georgia head coach ? We’re afraid to pay them what it would take and Alabama is not ? Give the game up then if this is what we get is a head coach who argues gets bent-out-shape at any question no matter how innocuous like he is in charge and goes out there 45 to nothing to a team we clearly match-up with talent wise.
If you ever thought there was some honeymoon to this job you should have discounted that Kirby when you saw we fired Mark Richt who had at the time the best coaching record of any UGA coach ever. His work was totally unsatisfactory for 8 years. His decisions ones we all second-guessed him on.
It seems to me that Georgia deserves an experienced coach proven he can handle the job for what could be $ 5 million 3 hundred thousand dollars with incentives not counting expense report and retirement we could pay you this year or any year here Kirby – and if not – then at least one who cares enough about the respect this job deserves to get here and be able to evaluate talent quickly and determine just whom it was you would need in a 15-game schedule to be ready to play game 5.
Mark Richt in game 8 last year started at quarterback a guy whom he had not given one single snap to at quarterback all season long. None of his 3 quarterbacks he did play last year nor the one he redshirted and ran-off who I thought should have been a 4-year starter here were any of them injured, Kirby.
Honestly Kirby you don’t look that much different to me. You better get with it Kirby.
You hear me ?
I am not putting-up with 45 to nothing scores Kirby. If you don’t hear me trust me you will. You had more talent than they but their head coach just ran rings around you Kirby. You did not even get guys in the game until he had his 4th string out there against the # 11 team in the nation – guys I figured would be household names by now.
You’re behind Kirby. You are not prepared for game 5 Kirby. If you had left that other job November 28 you might have been able by now to tell who your players just had to be you would play in game 5 because you certainly don’t yet Kirby. And you haven’t practiced them prepared them or the team for them and you have no concept where our weaknesses are or don’t care like we put up with Mark Richt for 8 years of averaging 4 losses a year so this is a cushy job you can spend flying-off at the handle every press meeting instead of belling-up to the bar and answering their questions.
They think these questions have been and are worthy, Kirby.
Guess what ?
So do I.
I can abide you making a mistake Kirby and starting one guy instead of another to a point where it is not totally obvious to the casual observer even Kirby Sir.
But not playing guys a single snap at positions of such glaring weakness and sorry Kirby I am calling you out on those and have been since Spring Practice # 1 in case you have not noticed Kirby. I expect you to play your players. I am not asking you. I am telling you. You aren’t in charge – you only think you are. You are not in charge very well are you Kirby ? You answer to us whether you like it or not Kirby. We hired you. We’ll also fire you if necessary Kirby if you can not bring this football team up to snuff. To-date, you have not listened to us. See to it sir you hear us this time please, Sir ?
It is unacceptable right down the line Kirby totally. 45 to nothing with all this talent.
NCAA Rankings to evaluate our team :
# 45 Strength of schedule this season Kirby for Georgia – not that tough sir
# 68 on 3rd Down Conversions better than # 119 last year. Unacceptable
# 86 in Fumbling the ball. Why do you have no beeping footballs Kirby?
# 100 Kick-Off Return Defense. Where is Mitchell Wasson Kirby ?
# 93 Kick-Off Returns by us. Mecole Hardman Jr Elijah Holyfield Brian Herrien?
# 68 Turnovers Lost send them right back out there no one different tried
# 71 Net Punting. Kirby you told us 2 weeks ago you no experience special teams
# 93 Field Goal Kicking Oh you made mistake at FG kicker Kirby ? Nowhere else sir?
# 56 Rushing Offense Fire Jim Chaney promote Del McGee Kirby do it now
# 66 Passing Offense every WR you are playing drops the ball more than 10% time
# 84 Red Zone Defense Kirby this is what you are supposed to be good at.
# 92 Red Zone Offense you are spread too thin too much detail Kirby
# 102 Sacks Allowed Ben Cleveland Solomon Kindley neither got snap Ole Miss again.
# 105 Sacks of our Opponent’s QB – no excuse for this Kirby either one
# 120 Tackles for a loss 128 teams Kirby you’re # 120 tackle behind their line
Is this where we’re supposed to be Game 5 ?
When is this unacceptable ?
Is there anything you think we’re good at Kirby ? What would that be Kirby ? That our freshmen don’t make fools of themselves in press meetings – just the coach ?
