What do YOU consider not being something bad happening on 1st Down running the ball 91 % of the time Kirby ?
When you are in 2nd and long EVERY time you run the ball, that is bad Kirby. Really really bad. Jesus Christ.
I am NOT going to put-up with it Kirby. For the last 8 years we averaged 4 losses per year because we lost to 12 teams unranked either time game or season AND lost to 18 of 24 top 15 teams # 45 in the nation with # 7 average Scout.com recruiting rankings. I fired him for that.
I would be INCONSISTENT which I am NOT to fail to point-out that this is totally unacceptable on many levels Kirby. I’mYourHuckleberry yesterday said he too is disappointed and that he too finds ALL THIS UNACCEPTABLE Kirby.
He asked us all what are we going to do about it ?
I guess I am going to point-out what we need to do.
Same as I tried to do with Mark Richt.
I am certainly NOT going to sit here and be 2-faced and say out of one side of my mouth that you are doing an UNACCEPTABLE JOB KIRBY and then say I am 100 % committed to you. I find these dubious beginnings built-upon a bad base mindset on your part Kirby.
Yes sir I am judging you Kirby.
I am NOT judging you based on Mark Richt. He was unacceptable as well.
I am judging you not on what he NEVER DID which was EVER put us on the national stage at the end of the season both teams ranked at the very top of the Final AP Poll – the nation watching. THAT is our goal accomplished 16 times prior and you have shot this season to hell Kirby. I gave you no Honeymoon. No season you could just WRITE-OFF like Mark Richt has been doing and is again this season down there at Miami of Florida. Hell he lost to North Carolina as I GUARANTEED on my blog he would’ve here too in game 1.
I do not see you learning what is needed Kirby and frankly I don’t have the time to.
Move along. Again, I am NOT putting up with it Kirby. If you took some solace from ImYourHuckleberry yesterday Kirby – here is MY REPLY then thereto. You either fix this Kirby or move-on. Those are the 2 choices.
If the ones you do allow to play Offensive Line such as NOT Ben Cleveland can not block for the run and you have TELEGRAPHED to EVERY opponent that you think Offensive Strategy 2016 is to ONLY RUN THE FOOTBALL, then guess what Kirby ?
MORE BAD THINGS HAPPEN when you run the football 16 First Downs against really a not all that great Vanderbilt team Kirby.
Yes I did warn you every post all week long Kirby that Vandie is a good team. I also told you every other word in this post this morning too every post all week long. You don’t listen Kirby because you are stubborn and because you are too conservative.
Ben Cleveland has been redshirted because he dared to be a true freshman.
Brian Herrien leads the team in yards per rush but since he is a freshman you gave him only a cameo appearance Homecoming Kirby. He is generally considered the # 19 best running back in America Kirby.
Elijah Holyfield is considered the consensus # 6 best running back in America.
Mecole Hardman Jr. is the # 1 athlete in America. Obviously he can run the ball.
Charlie Woerner is the # 6 best athlete in America. Obviously he can run the ball.
Ben Cleveland you have not played at all.
Mecole Hardman Jr. you did not play at all the first several games after entire Fall Practice – not 4 or 5 practices Kirby. You have not handed him the ball nor thrown to him either.
Elijah Holyfield dared to be a freshman.
Charlie Woerner you have thrown 3 balls to all year and no rushes.
Brian Herrien you gave a cameo appearance to Saturday when you COULD NOT RUN the ball on 1st down Kirby.
Mecole Hardman Jr. can run the football a LOT better than Isaiah McKenzie. But a freshmen he also does not get to play.
36 Net Yards Kirby on 16 First Down Runs vs unranked 0-3 SEC never won on the road in The SEC in 3 years for their coach Derek Mason.
What we have here is a failure to communicate with you Kirby. All season long we have TOLD YOU your opponents know this about you ALREADY Kirby. That you TOLD Jim Chaney to RUN THE BALL.
Now this Saturday at Homecoming you come right out and say it aloud : “When you run fewer bad things happen.” That is a FAILED OFFENSE Kirby – not that you know anything about offenses or special teams Kirby.
Or what constitutes looking at a player after 4 or 5 practices and knowing if he is elite or not – either Kirby.
There is no reason to keep you around to watch your antics with the press when they ask you questions about your knowledge of offenses, special teams, and why certain what we ALL THOUGHT are top players are NOT PLAYING Kirby.
All these proven head coaches we could have at least asked : How much ?
Yeah, we can pay you $ 6 million. Let me see now we will have a former middling tennis player who later became women’s tennis coach for a year to ask you what you know about football offense special teams and recognizing elite talent after 4 or 5 practices Kirby.
Let him decide whom the “search firm” offers-up for choices to choose from. This Greg McGarity lousy tennis player and girl’s tennis coach for a year.
Kirby who do you think knows more about talent offense and special teams you or ALL OF US sir ?
I have news for you Kirby : Collectively, we know a LOT more about offense, special teams and quick talent recognition than you sir. You better start listening to us and quit being so conservative and stubborn about all this Kirby.
Seriously “Fewer bad things happen when you run the football.” Kirby ?
This is 2016 Kirby wake up.
Do you have ANY idea what an ENERGY VAMPIRE you have been to your FRESHMAN CLASS Kirby ? Obviously you do NOT care. When Mark Richt only handed you on his returning 2-Deep 2 seniors and 6 juniors any seasoned coach would have instantly recognized that he HAD TO PLAY his freshmen. Game 8 next game and you STILL HAVE NOT. However, I dug up your QUOTE yesterday Kirby that you said after 4 or 5 practices you would recognize whether a player was an ELITE PLAYER OR NOT. Excuse me you said that about Mecole Hardman Jr. when we ASKED YOU KIRBY if you were planning on redshirting him since you HAVE NOT even given him a snap the first SEVERAL games this season and THEN only put him in on special teams but NOT AN IMPACT POSITION.
A detailed study of ANY of your freshmen class Kirby reveals CLEARLY that you have SAID in public that they ALL are NOT Elite players. Because you PROMISED US Kirby if they ARE ELITE PLAYERS that you would GET THEM ON THE FIELD and you said if on Offense would GET THEM THE BALL.
The problem with me Kirby is that I remember what everyone says.
I assimilate that. I took you at your word.
You owe your freshmen class an Apology Kirby for NOT playing them.
You have completely and fully disappointed all Bulldogs Kirby. That includes Mary Beth Lycett Smart. Kirby you are not ready to be a head coach sir.
How long do we WAIT until you do learn to be one Kirby ? Who is going to teach you now ? Greg McGarity ? A former tennis coach for a year – girl’s tennis and former less than average tennis player ? I certainly would have thought with your grades here all A Kirby all 4 years all A that by now you would have learned that your freshmen had to play. Honestly Kirby that is your # 1 mistake – which is saying something.
These 3 glaring weaknesses you have Kirby : Offense, Special Teams, Recognizing Elite talent and putting them on the field freshman or not – have ruined this season.
