Expert Poll: Ranking the Best Towns in College Football

 

1. Athens, Ga.

“Rich in musical history, Athens’ natural charm has long lured college football fans to Northeast Georgia. Bordering the evergreen campus to the North, the Downtown District is home to some of the South’s best music venues, bars and restaurants. There is a plethora of parks, trails and greenways for those who like the fresh air, but come nightfall, be sure to find your way to The 40 Watt Club or Georgia Theatre for a show. Top it all off with Five Points, a mix of mansions and fine dining.”

 

“It has it all. A great downtown area with a lot of great restaurants and bars, a pretty campus and my favorite football stadium.” – Pat Forde, Yahoo!

“Richt Era: 15 Years in Athens” (book): by Han Vance Big Hairy Blawg.com : WHO GIVES A SHIT 600 days today AFTER we FIRED HIM with cause ?

http://bighairyblawg.com/2017/06/28/buy-richt-era-15-years-in-athens-here/

 

2008 until fired in 2015 for his 73-32 record an average of 4 losses a season his last entire 8 years here and 600 days ago today we FIRED him for it so today you write a book about it.  Did you SAY THAT once Han Vance Big Hairy Blawg ?

 

Do I need to read it to know whether you did or did NOT say that Han Vance ?  Well do I boy ?

 

Let me know Han Vance ?

 

He’s NOT our coach.  Kirby is.  Try figuring it out Han Vance.  What kind of a name is Han Vance anyway ?  You’re NOT Big Hairy Dawg.  Han Vance wanted me to write for him but I told him that I would determine what to write and when NOT HIM.

 

Mark Richt LOST it after 2007.  He lost a dozen games after 2007 to unranked teams.  Mark Richt was # 41 in the nation with the average # 7 recruiting ranking vs top 15 teams after 2007 losing 20 of his 27 games against the top 15 after 2007 for his last entire 8 years here for # 11 all-time wins’ program UGA Georgia Bulldogs.

 

Mark Richt LOST 20 of his 27 games against Top 15 teams AP Poll or Coaches’ Poll time of game his last entire 8 years making us the God Damn Laughing Stock of the entire nation with his average # 7 recruiting ranking by Scout.com.  He peed his pants on the national stage for 8 years and you write a freaking book about him 600 days after we fired him for it Han Vance.  Wow boy.

 

No one CARES about Mark Richt June 29 of 2017 when we FIRED HIM November 29 of 2015 some 600 days ago dumb shit.

 

So you write a book 600 days later.  Whoopee !

 

Good riddance to the guy – a nice guy mind you – but a bad coach after 2007.

 

15 years of Mark Richt ?  It is a tale of 2 halves of his career.  His first half of his time here he was good.  The second half of the Mark Richt Era after 2007 his latest 8-year period he was ONLY 73-32 averaging 4 losses per season for his last entire 8 years.  Telling me 600 days LATER that he did this or that is telling me about what he did NOT his entire 15 years here but what he IN FACT did here his last 8 years for which he was FIRED summarily.  He could not beat the top teams any longer.  He lost to unranked teams 1 or 2 a year all of a sudden.  He got blown-out on the national stage when he NEVER did that either 2001 through 2007.

 

He quit caring.

 

Write a book about what Mark Richt did his LAST 8 YEARS here.

 

Try that dumbass.

Athlon Sports ranks 64 FBS head coaches BETTER than Kirby 2017 today and 65 worse. # 30 Butch Jones vols # 53 Scott Satterfield Appalachian State # 55 Will Muschamp USCe and # 65 Kirby Smart UGA Georgia Bulldogs : “After one season plenty of questions remain about Smart and whether or not he can elevate Georgia in the national conversation.”

“After one season plenty of questions remain about Smart and whether or not he can elevate Georgia in the national conversation.”  Athlon Sports Steven Lassan ranking Kirby # 65 head coach today.

 

After Kirby loses 20 STARTERS here at UGA after this 2017 season 2018 will be particularly PAINFUL for Kirby so he must make hay 2017 with all this talent.  Kirby certainly will lead the nation in NFL Draft Picks after this 2017 season.  Recruiting and Defense is ONLY part of the job of being head coach.  There are 2 more parts OFFENSE and SPECIAL TEAMS plus some press meetings Kirby needs to improve at as well.

 

Kirby did not help himself having to admit that he himself said he did NOT DO WELL at ALL 2016.  And of course it is hard to argue that point with Kirby with all this talent he has.  Still 2017 promises to be SEC Championship with the Top 5 overall talent in the nation 2017 for Kirby this year.

 

If Kirby does NOT PLAY all this talent 2017 like Kirby did NOT 2016 then 2018 will be the end for Kirby because if you can’t win with all this talent then you have no business being coach.  I think Kirby will be ok though because I think Kirby will win 2017 SEC Championship and go better than 10-4.  Now next year 2018 is all together a lesser year than 2017 no matter what Kirby does 2017.

Zamir White ranked # 7 overall prospect nationally and the # 1 running back nationally 2018 has offers and is dearly wanted by Alabama Ohio State Notre Dame Florida Auburn Clemson Florida State LSU Ole Miss NC State North Carolina Nebraska Oklahoma Penn State Wisconsin South Carolina vols Michigan and Miami of Florida Mark Richt but Kirby Smart CONTINUES his GREAT RECRUITING and gains his commitment since we do lose Nick Chubb and Sony Michel after this 2017 season. His number is jersey # 34. He is 6′ 1″ and 220 lbs. from Scotland High who won the North Carolina STATE CHAMPIONSHIP 2011. It is 296 miles mostly out I-20. Zamir White is a good-looking fine young man.

We have a ton of success in North Carolina.

 

I know how that STINGS to ALL the colleges in North Carolina.

 

We ALWAYS recruit the state of North Carolina extremely well.

 

Kirby CONTINUES his successes in RECRUITING.

 

Kirby also has a GOOD defense.

 

This commitment moves UGA to # 10 nationally in average rank per recruit for 2018 giving us 7 commitments so far with a full class of 25 to sign since we lose by my count 20 who STARTED here at Georgia after this 2017 season as AVAILABLE SCHOLARSHIPS.  Our average rank per recruit jumped to 3.57 for 2018.

A coach can be judged to be a good coach if he PLAYS good players.  That seems to be a secret to some that that really does make the coach seem to be a good coach when he has good players.

 

I tend to be technical.

 

This 2017 season is so important for Kirby and it promises to be I think SEC Championship ending the 3rd longest drought in our entire history.  With the 150-year anniversary of collegiate football the year after next we have a proud tradition and a great school.

 

We do VERY WELL.

 

More than 4 losses a season for 9 years now today has to end somewhere and 2017 is IT.

The most important aspects of the Kirby ERA are IN FACT what Kirby does against FLORIDA by fixing his offense and special teams. Kirby is not coaching well so far. His recruiting is great. His defense is fine. His OFFENSE and his SPECIAL TEAMS clearly show Kirby is NOT READY TO COACH those portions of HIS TEAM yet and he is a neophyte fish-out-of-water AT BOTH offense and special teams – losing 5 games having to make an announcement that he is NOT HAPPY with his coaching 2016. He LOST to Vandie for God’s sake – a team 3 OTHER CUPCAKES BEAT – a team with a losing record. RECRUITING ? Not Kirby’s PROBLEM. Wake-up ADMIN at FIELD AND STREET FORUM you dumbass.

I came across my 1975 Russell Hall Cork Bulletin board list of Night Clubs in my Summer Cleaning just now with all this rain we got. Here it is.

I checked-marked the first night club B&L Warehouse 244 Oconee 546-6860. We all went down there the first night after moving-in. That would have been 1975. I never returned nor went to the many other night clubs listed.

 

I was there at UGA for an education. I knew what I wanted. I was not side-tracked.  I was working full-time as restaurant manager training all the assistant managers for all 17 restaurants our chain owned at the time. Dad figured I could do better. He would pay for my college if I would go.

 

I kept working.

 

I chose to be in Russell Hall in-between Brumby and Creswell and chose the room one floor up from the basketball court. I signed-up for 7:50 a.m. class and ran them consecutively until after the noon rush at Snelling Dining Hall. Then I would return to my room and study until I was ahead in every class. Then I played basketball until I dropped. Then shower and back to Snelling for dinner. Then to bed very early with a night light studying and reading on-and-off until classes the next day including all weekends never going back to Atlanta.

 

I would wake-up at 5 a.m. and be the rabbit for the Track Team then shower and then go to work in the mornings for an hour or so and then go to Snelling for breakfast then classes.  I NEVER missed a class.

 

239 hours of all A later I made a B finally in my senior year at UGA. I went straight through including full loads every Summer.  Dean Fluellen had to approve my class schedule since I was WAY OVER-LOADED on hours.  Reluctantly at first I talked him into it and later-on he was just proud of me.  I was a Walk-On and never played.

 

I have $ 5 million including retirement to show for it.

Why point this out now that Summer Vacation is in swing ?

 

Because it is MY HOPE that 2017 all the players and coaches are dedicated to DOING the BEST THEY CAN DO at their studies and sports and as well STAY OUT of the night clubs.

 

Yes Athens is the # 1 college football town.  THAT was NOT what I was there for.

 

6-26-2017

It does not take a genius to figure-out that our offense and special teams have not been properly coached and that our defense has been. Anyone watching us or rooting for us is painfully aware of these 3 distinct truths and the statistical evidence supports this general observation which includes MAINLY not playing the right players on offense and special teams. So why is this ? Do we have barriers preventing us from getting our talented players on the field especially at positions on offense and special teams ? The EVIDENCE that FRESHMEN are TOTALLY READY TO PLAY 2017 and that staffs who FULLY EMBRACE this new concept are FAR MORE LIKELY to succeed especially if the senior-laden squads find-out earlier seasons that those players JUST HAVE NOT GOTTEN THE JOB DONE. # 87 Offense overall nationally. # 101 Special Teams overall nationally. # 16 Defense overall nationally. Is THIS a test of Kirby’s ability to develop talent or PROOF Kirby knows DEFENSE and NOT OFFENSE and NOT SPECIAL TEAMS ?

In the NBA the new RULE allowing college FRESHMEN to play in the NBA after JUST ONE YEAR OF COLLEGE SPORTS has demonstrated that what once might have been true – about FRESHMEN not being READY to play professionally against MEN – is totally debunked nowadays in the NBA.

 

There is NO DIFFERENCE in the NFL.  None.

 

Or ANY other sport such as Baseball or Track and Field etc.

 

Rumors abounded that Kirby purposely scuttled his season 2016 – so that comparing when he got here with this 2017 season would give rise to HOPE among the faithful that we are HEADED in the RIGHT DIRECTION.

 

There is ample evidence that there generally was a LACK OF EFFORT to even get here and be a part of the 2016 season, followed by a general dragging of feet by our staff to PREPARE our team for 2016.  Therefore, we FELL BEHIND the 8-ball and never did achieve homeostasis on offense or on special teams – yet on defense we did quite well and we did a far better job of getting HELP in there 2016 on defense than we did on offense or special teams.

 

# 97 Passing Offense :

  1. bad OL play
  2. poor play calls sent in by a former Defensive Linemen hired as Offensive Coordinator
  3. playing of injured stars
  4. not playing healthy back-ups
  5. lack of fulfilling the receiver needs in recruiting 2016 and again 2017 for an area of OBVIOUS NEEDS
  6. a simply willy-nilly approach to sending BACK out there on a rotation basis EVERY SINGLE receiver even those MOST PRONE to PURELY DEMONSTRATE that they can’t catch the ball
  7. POOR skill-based proof that we do NOT even know HOW to catch a ball
  8. let alone we can’t run a route
  9. we can’t  block downfield
  10. we can’t even get open
  11. we do not present ourselves for a pass
  12. Of course all we were trying to do was RUN THE BALL anyway
  13. And we didn’t even practice the players who we threw to the wolves later anyway who did start for us in the passing game in the Spring or Fall of 2016.

 

 

All of THIS caused this # 97 Passing Offense nationally 2016.    THIS is BAD COACHING and is not therefore some TEST that Kirby DEVELOPS players 2017.

 

# 50 Rushing Offense :

  1. bad OL play
  2. poor play calls sent-in
  3. playing of injured stars
  4. not playing healthy back-ups
  5. we seemed more interested in lying to the press about our GIVEN GAME STRATEGIES of run EVERY FIRST down play than trying ANYTHING to fix what clearly was a poor coaching job of our ULTRA talented stable of running backs handed to Kirby by Del McGee and previous recruiting efforts prior to Kirby.
  6. And of course Kirby has NO PRIOR experience on offense doing anything meaningful to coach offenses ever before.

 

# 101 special teams :

  1. hired son a special teams’ guru like that demonstrates that he has the balls to insist on certain players STARTING for him on special teams overruling the head coach with NO EXPERIENCE on special teams either.
  2. We could not kick-off, kick, catch kicks, return kick-offs, block for kick-offs, block kicks, fend-off blocks for kick-offs by us, punt, return punts, block for punts, block punts – in short we proved beyond a shadow of the doubt as on offense that we DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’RE DOING on special teams NOR offense.

 

# 87 Overall Offense nationally 2016

# 101 Overall Special Teams nationally 2016

# 16 Overall Defense nationally 2016

 

Despite a huge advantage in TALENT 2017 over the other teams nationally these underlying ISSUES remain for the new staff to prove they actually have experience in fixing ANY of this.

 

Or if 2017 will just be another WASTED SEASON of great promise talent-wise with poor coaching except on defense.

 

I am predicting an SEC Championship better than 10-4 then for 2017 and a drop-back after this 2017 season where we lead the nation in NFL Draft Picks after the 2017 season and then do worse 2018 than we do 2017 losing 20 who STARTED for us after this 2017 season.

 

It’s do it now for Kirby’s staff on offense and special teams or move along after the season.

 

There is NO REASON to WAIT until next year 2018 if Kirby’s staff continues to PROVE they can not coach ALL THIS TALENT handed to them 2017.

 

There is no progression or getting better 2017 over 2016 that occurs 2018 losing the most NFL Draft Picks in the nation after this 2017 season of 20 who started here at UGA after THIS SEASON.

 

There are no more apologies by Kirby in the off-season after this 2017 season as he did after scuttling the 2016 season personally for us that can be accepted given his Great Exodus after 2017 of one of the top 5 teams in the nation 2017 in star-power.

 

Put-up or SHUT-UP 2017.

 

# 87 Offense overall nationally.

# 101 Special Teams overall nationally.

# 16 Defense overall nationally.

 

Is THIS a test of Kirby’s ability to develop talent or PROOF Kirby knows DEFENSE and NOT OFFENSE and NOT SPECIAL TEAMS ?

Since we had the single most NFL Top 100 players last year and tied for the most NFL Top 100 players this year – the question is how is this possible averaging as we ARE MORE than 4 losses a season for 9 years and counting now ? 37 losses latest 9 years here at UGA.

I will tell you how this is possible.  We HAVE HAD and DO have BAD COACHING.

 

Obviously.

 

We’re not designing plays for our most dynamic players and calling those plays and we HAVE NOT for 9 years.  If we do not get our TOP Offensive Linemen OUT THERE blocking in game 1 we will have ANOTHER WASTED season 2017.  2017 offers so MUCH PROMISE.

 

The state of our football program is not and HAS NOT BEEN good at ALL averaging as we are MORE than 4 losses a year after 2007.  This is 2017.

 

Of the 129 FBS teams an astounding 33 teams have fewer than our 37 losses after 2007.  This with the average # 7 recruiting class for UGA after 2007 – which is the 2nd best recruiting in the nation over the latest 9 years now.

 

It is pretty sad that last year we had the most and this year tied for the most NFL Top 100 players and yet we AVERAGE MORE than 4 losses a year for 9 years now with 37 losses.  37

 

With the average # 7 recruiting class for 9 years.

 

Just sad.

 

BAD COACHING.

 

http://football.stassen.com/cgi-bin/records/calc-wp.pl?start=2008&end=2016&rpct=0&min=0&pt=on&by=Losses

 

4 losses per year would be over this latest 9-year period then 36 losses but we have 37 losses after 2007.

 

WITH ALL THIS TALENT.

 

I am predicting and guaranteeing that we fix this this year 2017 and win The SEC Championship making the play-offs this year and therefore being better than 10-4 this season 2017.  After this season I expect us to lead the NFL in NFL Draft Picks after this 2017 season with the most NFL Draft Picks after this 2017 season in next year’s NFL Draft.  This is because we stand to lose 20 who have started here at UGA after this 2017 season – the vast majority seniors.

Herschel Walker was the top vote getter from the panel of 16 sportswriters with 9 number one votes which was three times as many as the next nearest.

Jon Ossoff with most of his money from California filled our damn airwaves with his bullshit and the second most of his money for all that crap was from New York. In affluent North Atlanta where President Donald Trump won by two percentage points MORE THAN TWICE that is our VOICE SPEAKING AGAIN. Despite all the shit disgruntled same-old-story Democrats fed us with California and New York MONIES telling US how to vote WE voted AGAIN as always since 1979. Citizenship for lawbreakers NOT PAYING TAXES and DRIVING WITHOUT a license is NOT MY IDEA of where we need to be and neither is someone who can’t even be BOTHERED to LIVE IN MY DAMN DISTRICT. Piss-off Jon Ossoff who says he isn’t even sure he will run in 2018 AT ALL.

You told us all day every day how Jon Ossoff would win.  He not only did not win but lost by MORE than twice the percentage points President Donald Trump beat Hillary with.  That is a BLOW-OUT loss of a liberal bleeding heart.  We hate Nancy Pelosi here in the 6th district.

 

EVERYONE of us.

 

All of us.

 

And so the democratic stronghold in California and New York send ALL their monies HERE to TELL us how to vote.

 

NO other ad ran.

 

Just Jon Ossoff.

 

You called my cell phone repeatedly.

 

You stood outside the voting place.

 

You sat in benches with T-shirts on outside the polling place.

 

And you rallied support for your side thinking Southerners are backwards stupid uneducated and needed YOU to tell US how to vote.

 

They even showed-up trying to vote when they do not live in the 6th district.  Why not ?  Your candidate does not even live here either.  He lives in an apartment and easily could have represented HIS DISTRICT by living here among us.  But no that is too much damn trouble for Democrats.

 

They told us in EVERY POLL Jon Ossoff would win and did win.

 

Then we voted.

 

They told us THEN that it is a referendum against Republicans with their tired old rhetoric.

 

They never did tell us that Jon Ossoff wants to give citizenship to cheating lawbreakers who do NOT pay taxes and don’t have a driver’s license.

 

They told us how attractive Jon Ossoff is.

 

They told us that Republicans would not control the House.  We have 47 more Republicans than Democrats.  47.

 

And the Democrats who are MOSTLY from out West and up North tell us how bad all this is.  You can’t win.  Even when you tell us how you WILL you don’t.

 

Jon Ossoff ?

 

Really ?

 

Nearly three-quarters of us have college degrees and make $ 160 thousand dollars a year every year.

 

And you bring your tired bullshit down here to our airwaves to tell US how to vote ?

 

I am so fed-up with your tired worn-out rhetoric of how bad all this is for YOU.

 

It is a BLOW-OUT of Biblical Proportions by MORE than twice the percentage points President Donald Trump beat Hillary with.

 

It is NOT at ALL what you said it would be.

 

You LOST again.

 

Your leaders in the Democratic Party are NOT our leaders.

 

We’re SMARTER than that.

 

I have news for you in California and New York that not only are you out-of-touch but also we do NOT like your kind.  Try your tired old bullshit somewhere else.

 

Jon Ossoff has the lead.  Jon Ossoff will win.  Those of you who did show-up to vote were pissed-off.  You are EVEN more so now.

 

Jon Ossoff was defeated by MORE than TWICE that by which Hillary was here.  Make them citizens ?  Tell them to vote for you then – try THAT.  Give us YOUR GUY who doesn’t even BOTHER to TRY to live in my district ?

 

Bad job Democrats.  Bad ads.  Wrong idea.  I am sick and tired of your ads Democrats.

 

Take your cash back to California and to New York the number one and number two places where all those ad monies came from and BURN IT THERE dumbasses.

 

You LOST again.  Ha ha.  Lol.

 

You don’t listen – do you ?

 

I listen.  I studied your words.  I get it.  You do not.  There were 71 better shots for Democrats than this 71.

Best Trios in The SEC 2017 per ESPN – Edward Aschoff just now : “Number 2 best BACKFIELD trio behind Alabama is Georgia: QB Jacob Eason, RB Nick Chubb, RB Sony Michel. Chubb and Michel have totaled an impressive 5,835 rushing yards over the last three seasons, including 1,970 yards last year with 12 touchdowns. Eason threw for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns as a true freshman in 2016. As he continues to get more comfortable with Georgia’s offense, expect those passing numbers to increase this fall.”

Louisville is # 168 of top colleges U.S. News and World Report. Louisville AGREED with the NCAA that during a 4-year period Louisville repeatedly provided striptease and sex acts for hire and Louisville offered-up on its own to REDUCE SCHOLARSHIPS and post-season ban. Louisville further AGREES with the 4-year NCAA Probation of Louisville. Louisville states that Minardi Hall is their basketball dorm where seven (7) seventeen (17) year-old minors were provided on their scholarship recruiting visits escorts who performed these sex and striptease acts but that Rick Pitino knew nothing about any of it. Rick Pitino also states that he put his coaching staff in responsibility for what happened at Minardi Hall but the Rick Pitino coaching staff states that they were TOTALLY UNAWARE that they were in charge of Minardi Hall. The purpose of this over the 4 years was to gain a competitive advantage in RECRUITING and Louisville won the NCAA national championship in 2013 as a result recording the most victories EVER in the entire Louisville history with 35 wins with these recruits. This recruiting advantage was successful for Rick Pitino. In addition to the 7 minors provided these sex acts for hire and striptease acts in their recruiting visits over 4 years four years another 2 coaches were as well who joined them on the visits and another friend was as well and in addition to ALL THAT 10 more either student-athletes or more recruits were as well who were not 17 or younger. Good control there and nice try Rick Pitino that you put your assistants in charge of that. You LOST CONTROL Rick Pitino. Clearly. Your coaches are a disgrace to the coaching community and your university is a disgrace to all universities. ACC is disgraced in men’s basketball by the University of Louisville.

YOU are responsible for what goes on in YOUR PROGRAM Rick Pitino.  You might want to speak with your assistants about your public statement that THEY were put in charge of this by YOU because THEY state that that is the first THEY HEARD that they were put in charge of this by you.  You’re responsible Rick Pitino.  These excuses by you are reprehensible Rick Pitino.

 

YOU maintain COMPLETE CONTROL of your program as the head coach.  YOU are the general manager.  You are the CEO.  You are the team president.

 

Minardi Hall is NAMED for your family Rick Pitino so what do you mean you did not know what was going on there ?

 

Your football team is made-up at Louisville of our DISCARDED PLAYERS here at Georgia whom we KICKED-OFF the team here.  You have NO indoor practice facility but a joke of a partial one where you can only run through a couple of plays only and is not a complete football field even.

 

Louisville is # 168 in the latest U.S. News and World Report Rankings of top universities. It sucks.  You’re a joke of a college and always have been.  Now this.  And your reaction ?  We are KEEPING Rick Pitino AGAIN.  Look at your coaches.  Rick Pitino and Bobby Petrino.  Good heavens.  You have NO CREDIBILITY Louisville. This is REALLY BAD for the ACC.

 

This covers the years of 2011 2012 2013 and 2014. Nine of the 2013 Louisville team 9 are listed on wiki with their own personal webpages for their basketball abilities. 9.

 

Rick Pitino is # 29 all-time of NCAA collegiate basketball head coaches in winning percentage.  He has a sordid history with the public.

 

Rick Pitino became head coach in 1975 at the University of Hawaii. That is 42 years ago.

 

As head coach at the University of Hawaii Rick Pitino committed eight (8) violations of NCAA rules for which the University of Hawaii was put on NCAA probation. The violations involving Pitino included providing round-trip air fare for a player between New York and Honolulu. And arranging for student-athletes to receive used cars in return for Hawaii season tickets. And handing out coupons to players for free restaurant food at McDonald’s. Rick Pitino was cited by the NCAA for providing misinformation to the NCAA and University of Hawaii officials. The NCAA infractions committee recommended that Rick Pitino be disassociated from Hawaii athletics. Rick Pitino – then as now – said : “I didn’t make any mistakes. I don’t care what anybody says.”

 

August 1 of 2003 at Louisville Rick Pitino ADMITTED he had sex at a restaurant called Porcini with the wife of his Louisville equipment manager.  Rick Pitino also admits that he paid $3000 three thousand dollars for the abortion. “The complete sex took no more than 15 seconds” according to Rick Pitino. Rick Pitino called a press conference and stated that the press “stop reporting these lies.” Rick Pitino made a statement that he apologized for THIS indiscretion. Louisville kept him on anyway. The University of Georgia would have FIRED Rick Pitino after he apologized and stated “it took no more than 15 seconds.”

 

Once you apologized for your personal public indiscretion you called it Rick Pitino just what sir do you mean that the press ” stop reporting these lies ? “

 

Rick Pitino’s reputation is what it is. And his cover-up EXCUSES are legendary.

 

http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/2017INF_LouisvillePublicInfractionsDecisionF_20170615.pdf

 

 

The ACC is taking it on the nose over this as is the University of Louisville who has NEVER had a good reputation as a university in the first place as these ON-GOING issues with Rick Pitino and Bobby Petrino prove.  And you snatching-up our discarded kicked-off football players has NOT HELPED you EITHER.

KIRBY QUOTE TODAY : “Let’s be honest. Georgia – if you get the best players in this state – you should be winning championships. I think we’re getting there in recruiting. I see our talent level going up. We still have some questions although we liked what we saw in the spring. We should be a team that will contend. At the University of Georgia that is the expectation. We should be a team that is favored to win the East each year. We should recruit the best players in our state which is a very productive state and develop those guys into really good players. We’re still a young team in my mind. Because over half of our roster will be freshmen or sophomores. But we’ve got some good football players coming back and I’m excited.” I agree with those statements by Kirby except on the OL where his small OL did NOT get the job done. Again. And except for young team when he loses 20 at least part-time starters after this 2017. THAT is NOT young but SENIOR-LADEN. He needs to get the freshmen on the field with them and maximize 2017. 2018 will be DOWN YEAR because we are NOT a young team and lose too much after 2017 for 2018 to be better.

“Last year is over and that can’t be changed now.” Really ? Last year is over ? I am sorry but what I saw last year is what I expect to see this year. I hardly think anything indicates that last year was any fluke.

To the contrary what happened last year was that Jacob Eason did not get any reps with the # 1 unit until 2 weeks before kick0ff game to the season and then was thrown into the fire anyway without the experience he should have gotten given that he started all season after winning game 1 coming-in down losing and leaving the game with a lead coming from behind against a quality opponent.

To the contrary what happened last year was that Isaac Nauta did not start until game 5 then next 2 games not starting again and again then finishing All-America anyway.

To the contrary what happened last year was that Ben Cleveland was redshirted whilst smaller OL who did not get the job done was all Kirby sent out there to do the dirty work of establishing the run given that Kirby said that was what he was going to do then did every first down run the ball.

To the contrary what happened last year was that Kirby was going to redshirt Mecole Hardman Jr. then relented when Mecole himself went to Kirby and had a come to Jesus meeting only to get all of one touch all season long.

To the contrary the special teams were atrocious as if Kirby never had ever been given responsibility anywhere for special teams to prepare him to be head coach.

To the contrary the offense was abysmal running nearly every first down all year long in the face of 8 and 9 in the box against Kirby’s stated facts that “fewer bad results happen when you run the football.”

To the contrary Jim Chaney is right back in the saddle as if Kirby is satisfied with what he saw.

To the contrary Kirby struggled against all the really poor football teams and even lost to losing record Vandie who lost to 3 cupcakes but not to Kirby.

To the contrary we averaged the # 7 recruiting class for our 2016 roster and the # 6 recruiting class on this year’s 2017 roster and ended-up not ranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25 for the 5th time in the last 9 years more than half the time after 2007.

To the contrary Kirby stubbornly dogmatically played only injured Nick Chubb and injured Sony Michel at TB behind his lousy stinking choices of small OL with 3 top big OL he recruited all redshirted except one snap between his 3 top OL recruits of 2016 and Kirby never even considered starting Brian Herrien as this blog called for July 4.

To the contrary Kirby gave Nick Chubb 32 carries his first game back after 3 ligament surgery and he was never the same thereafter.

To the contrary Kirby said and knew he needed to recruit receivers and did not 2016 or 2017 really either and now has none for 2018 either.

To the contrary Kirby has not yet figured-out how to run his first press conference without contention yet and this is year two now.

To the contrary Kirby has sent-out willy-nilly 5 receiver sets with no sense of urgency even yet to find his one pitch-and-catch combo.  We saw JJ Holloway steal the show in the G-Day Game and he too is buried on the roster and may or may not get to play some by say game 5 right ?

To the contrary not just Ben Cleveland but Chris Barnes and Solomon Kindley were not used to rest the tired little OL Kirby stubbornly insisted on playing every down of every game looking like shit.  Now 2017 he bragged all off-season how the same back-ups to those guys more small guys dominated his defense he bragged to us.  What we all witnessed with our own eyes was the offensive line looks as lost 2017 as it did 2016.

To the contrary Seth Emerson sir I see nothing to indicate Kirby will start his freshmen OL he is stockpiling but instead use small itty-bitty guys on the OL again like he did last year and seemed satisfied with that too.  I mean it was a throw-away year 2016 so why can’t 2017 be a throw-away year too despite the facts that Kirby probably loses 20 guys who have started here at Georgia after this season and ends-up with the most players drafted by the NFL of all teams in the nation after this 2017 season which had better damn well be SEC Championship with all this talent wasted as Kirby did last year and is so far again 2017.

 

AJ-C DawgNation Seth Emerson  :  “Last year is over and that can’t be changed now.”

 

https://www.dawgnation.com/football/georgias-important-players-2017-source-fascination

 

 

To the contrary No Seth Emerson sir last year is hardly over and it isn’t going to be changed in 2017 either.  Kirby will continue to do what he does.  What he did.  What he has done.  What he will continue to do.  I see nothing to indicate there is any sense of urgency on Kirby’s part for 2017 any more than there was for 2016.

 

To the contrary Seth Emerson after the NFL Draft after this 2017 season this season will be over for Kirby and you will be scratching your head why in his 14-game season 2017 with the # 36 strength of schedule with only 4 teams more talented than Kirby that he lost 4 games again.  I won’t.  What I see is what I saw and is what I expect.

 

To the contrary I have a sense of urgency to 2017 for SEC Championship now 2017 with all this talent and insist we send that message to Kirby.  Produce or move on.  Learn offenses and special teams on your own time.  Play the recruits you recruit not just recruit them and redshirt them.

 

I hear that all the time Seth Emerson that the past is the past.  The past is who you are.  Fix it if it needs fixing and quit cease and desist with the bullshit that that is history now.  No it’s not.  You never fixed any of this.

 

So the past is who you are and who you will continue to be.

 

You had better get with the program GATA and win now Kirby 2017.

Gridiron Now.com Chadd Scott whose wife is FL grad and who himself is Auburn grad states CHUCK OLIVER told him none of our 2016 players play for Alabama and one Isaac Nauta of 2017 UGA players would start for Alabama to piss-off everyone in The Whole Entire Bulldog Nation.

The cheesy post is a 3-part designed to get 2 more CLICKS to read – 2 ads to a loan company.

 

Yes we misused our 2016 talent and will again 2017 as all indications show Kirby will hold-back his big OL and start little guys 2017 instead.  Small OL guys who did not get the job done last year or the year before will start for KIRBY 2017.

 

Chadd Scott then summarizes that Chadd Scott thinks Kirby will close the talent gap with Alabama in 2018 or 2019 despite Kirby losing 20 of his STARTERS 2017 after the 2017 season.

 

Kirby will NOT close the talent gap with Alabama 2018.  It’s 2017 when Kirby can GET IT DONE – not for God’s sake WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR as per Chadd Scott Gridiron Now.com.

 

I still state that Nick Saban given injuries to both Sony Michel and to Nick Chubb 2016 would’ve started Brian Herrien at Tailback for UGA 2016 were he here.

 

And he would’ve prepared Jacob Eason as he did Jalen Hurts unlike the manner Kirby held-back Jacob Eason not preparing him then throwing him into the fire.

 

And there is NO WAY Nick Saban plays THAT OL 2016 Kirby sent out there but his freshmen OL instead.

 

In fact I believe that Mo Smith was destined to start at Alabama 2016.  He would’ve made plays against Deshaun Watson and so would’ve Dominick Sanders.

 

Kirby has tons of players who with proper assessment could’ve started at Alabama 2016 and even more now for 2017.

 

Lorenzo Carter.

Michail Carter.

Ben Cleveland.

Brian Herrien.

Jacob Eason.

Deangelo Gibbs.

Mecole Hardman Junior.

No the problem is for Chadd Scott that Kirby has MORE players who would start at Florida and at Auburn than they do because Kirby has MORE TALENT than BOTH 2017 and EVERYONE SAYS Kirby plays Alabama 2017 in The SEC Championship Game BECAUSE OF ALL OF THIS TALENT.

 

Chuck Oliver another disgruntled Auburn grad knows that THEY do NOT have UGA’s talent today just as Chadd Scott is afraid of too. Chuck and Chernoff AM 680 the Fan.  Frick and Frack both afraid of how good Georgia is 2017.

 

2018 ?

 

Typical Auburn fan trying to get Bulldogs to think about 2018 or 2019 when 2017 we are a handful for Auburn for Florida and yes for Alabama – much more so than we will be in 2018 losing 20 I figure STARTERS for Kirby 2017 after this up-coming stellar 2017 season.

 

Or at least Kirby had better hope it is.

 

Jim Donnan bragged how good his talent was as Kirby just did yesterday for 2017 and when he did not deliver Mike Adam$ ran him out of town to the chagrin of Vince Dooley.

 

Yeah we’re good 2017 Kirby with all this talent now the question is will you PLAY THE TALENT such as on your OL for Sam Pittman 2017 Kirby ?  Will you come-up with some SEMBLANCE of an offensive game strategy 2017 Kirby or tell Jim Chaney run every first down all season long again ?  And will you FIND a pitch-and-catch combo for your three (3) quarterbacks 2017 Kirby or send out WR after WR like you have no clue who can catch a pass Kirby ?

 

In the meantime Kirby’s foibles as COACH will be the ONLY HOPE for Auburn grads for he most certainly has MORE TALENT than Auburn Florida vols and maybe is closer to Alabama 2017 than we will be here at Georgia for a LONG TIME hence 2017.

 

2018 ?

 

Have you EVEN looked who Kirby loses after 2017 Chuck Oliver or Chad Scott or for that matter Kincaid EITHER ?

 

All but Buck Belue AM680 the Fan has missed that THIS is Kirby’s BEST SHOT 2017 and he had BETTER deliver.

QUOTE FROM FOX SPORTS.COM Aaron Torres : “Kirby Smart lost to Vanderbilt and had way too many close calls against inferior teams. So was it a byproduct of a young coach getting his sea legs? Or a byproduct of the type of coach that Smart is? With a loaded roster that’s favored to win the SEC East, we’re about to find out. # 12 pre-season Georgia Bulldogs: Can you really trust Kirby Smart?” Fox Sports.com Aaron Torres

FOX Sports.com Aaron Torres best-selling book Author and Senior Writer FOX Sports.com not the Bronze Medal professional boxer.

 

Clearly there were so MANY blunders by Kirby and STILL ARE 2017 that I have MANY QUESTIONS about how prepared to be HEAD COACH Kirby is on both OFFENSE and on Special Teams.  His recruiting is great but he has to PLAY his recruits if he wants to win AND he has to figure-out a way to either leave the offense alone or come-up with some type of an offensive game strategy – neither of which seems possible with Jim Chaney and Kirby overseeing him with no knowledge demonstrated by either.

 

I am not sure he wants to win.

 

I think he is more interested in BEING IN CHARGE.

 

For example : All these HUGE OFFENSIVE LINEMEN in Kirby’s RECRUITING but he SAYS AGAIN 2017 his # 1 starters getting all the # 1 reps with the # 1 unit are NOT those big OL but his itty-bitty teeny-weenie OL he inherited who have NOT GOTTEN THE JOB DONE instead.

Only 2 other players in all of The SEC will have more tackles than Roquan Smith 2017 who will go OVER 100 tackles 2017 clearly then All-America 2017. “Talent is just spilling from this guy’s ears, and he led the Bulldogs with 95 tackles last year. Smith is only getting better, and as a very rangy middle linebacker, Smith will yet again be involved in a ton of plays this fall.” ESPN – Edward Aschoff

There are only 4 coaches who have won the national championship of 130 FBS coaches. Who will be the 5th ? Tom Fornelli CBS Sports.com writer who calls UGA the most tortured fan base of all of college football and who says that Kirby is one of the best bets to win ONLY 7 of his first 12 games 2017 says that “Kirby Smart is honorable mention to become the 5th active head coach to win the national championship in college football.”

So we have the # 1 group of running backs in the United States of America today according to Bleacher Report for whatever the hell that is worth – some guy David Kenyon – whoever the hell that is and Bob Stoops amid ALL THE ISSUES with his PLAYERS he has TAKEN-ON DESPITE their LEGAL TROUBLES outcasts from OTHER SCHOOLS finally resigns today only 7 weeks after his STARTING QB arrested on FELONY CHARGES has his court date and still faces those charges – any correlation ? You tell me.

Bob Stoops has had NOTHING BUT issues with the press over his Dorial Green-Beckham transfer after multiple arrests AND allegedly forced open an apartment door and pushed a woman down a flight of stairs.

 

Then there is also of course Joe Mixon top running back BAD BOY.  Bob Stoops reviewed a security tape of Joe Mixon striking a young woman resulting in serious facial injuries and decided on a one-year suspension from the football team.  Then late last year 2016 Bob Stoops told the press after the season that his decision would have been different now once the tape went viral.

 

Now there is another.  Baker Mayfield arrested on FELONY CHARGES and in the last several weeks now today still facing these legal charges.  On April 7 he plead NOT GUILTY to ALL CHARGES.  That is his STARTING QUARTERBACK as THIS BLOG pointed-out at the time.  See this blog’s entries on THAT ARREST which can be searched and are listed after any post as RELATED POSTS at the bottom of the post – if you click this post not just only read the home page.

 

Coincidence that Bob Stoops is STEPPING-DOWN ?

 

I don’t think so.

 

Bob Stoops clearly has gone the WRONG-WAY on taking-in just big chances with players who have great promise and who also have no business playing collegiate football whom other schools had TROUBLE WITH THERE and so they end-up on Bob Stoops’ team Oklahoma.  Even with that Bob Stoops could not win the big games.  Even playing in the stinking Big XII Bob Stoops could not do well.  I do not therefore find this at all unusual that Bob Stoops has QUIT given his statements AFTER last season and NOW THIS on top of all that that yes Dorial Green-Beckham and yes Joe Mixon have put EGG all over Bob Stoops’ face and NOW THIS with Baker Mayfield.

 

The reports of Baker Mayfield state that he Mayfield is a person who is unable to walk straight, having slurred speech and having food covering the front of his shirt. When he was asked to stay so the police could get a statement, Mayfield began shouting obscenities and “causing a scene”.   After resisting arrest he was charged ALSO by the police with fleeing arrest as well.  His case against ALL these charges are NOT RESOLVED.

 

And so NOW Bob Stoops quits.

 

Coincidence ?

 

No way.

 

Defend Bob Stoops all you want but he has THROWN IN THE TOWEL.

 

Good riddance to the CHEATER taking-in THUGS like this and STILL not getting back to the national championship after 2000.

 

In 2003 Bob Stoops lost his last two (2) games including being BLOWN-OUT by Kansas State.

In 2004 Bob Stoops was BLOWN-OUT by Southern California.

In 2008 Bob Stoops lost to Texas by double-digits and still lost to Florida by double-digits.

Then two years’ ago 2015 Bob Stoops lost to Texas and still played Clemson BLOWN-OUT 17-37 only to watch Clemson lose the next game to Alabama.

Then THIS LAST SEASON 2016 Bob Stoops lost to Houston by double-digits then LOST in a BLOW-OUT to Ohio State 24-45 only to watch Ohio State lose to Clemson 31 to nothing.

These are Bob Stoops’ best years – cough cough – after 2000.  Now you have the nutshell of Bob Stoops’ 2003 2004 2008 2015 and 2016 season leading-up to this LESS THAN STUNNING announcement that Bob Stoops gives up – quits – can not compete and no longer wants to even try to compete with these questionable players such as NOW his wide receiver running back and quarterback.

 

They do NOT call the place choke-la-homa for NOTHING.

 

 

 

We better do something with all these running backs we are stock-piling here.  One would THINK that an AVERAGE offensive line could block for the # 1 group of running backs in the nation right ?

 

6-8-2017

Edward Aschoff ESPN states Jacob Eason will throw for over 3000 yards 2017 : “Jacob Eason threw for 2430 yards 2016. Wide receiver and offensive line are still two question marks for the Bulldogs but Jacob Eason is getting much more comfortable with Jim Chaney’s offense. 3000 yards should be in his future 2017.”

http://www.espn.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/129509/who-will-be-the-secs-3000-yard-passers-for-2017

 

6-7-2017

# 1 Draft Pick overall would be 5th for Georgia Bulldogs all-time 1st Pick NFL Draft 1st Round JACOB EASON according to www.WalterFootball.com 2019 NFL Draft not after this season but after the season AFTER this season : “Jacob Eason exploded on the season for Georgia, throwing 16 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions as a freshman in the SEC. Eason still needs to work on his accuracy, but he’s young enough to make vast improvements in the near future.” 6 June 2017

I would NOT say that Jacob Eason “EXPLODED on the scene 2016” what with Kirby saying daily for the entire season that Jacob Eason SUCKED but as well I had predicted Jacob Eason would in fact be our 5th # 1 NFL Draft Pick 1st Round 1st Pick all-time.  Then Kirby REFUSED categorically to allow Jacob Eason ANY snaps with the # 1 unit and in fact even after game 1 last season in which Jacob Eason came in and BAILED-OUT Greyson Lambert taking us from double-digits DOWN LOSING in his win over North Carolina Jacob Eason was STILL NOT GETTING the # 1 snaps with the # 1 unit that following Monday even last year.

 

Then there was the bullshit of running on every 1st down all season long even into 8 9 and 10 men fronts.

 

Then there was the lack of recruiting a top wide receiver – now for two years in a row for this man MANY think has the potential to be still the # 1 Pick in the 1st Round not after this season but after next year.

 

Then there was the willy-nilly method of Kirby sending out wide receivers.

 

But still # 1 pick overall NFL Draft after not this season but after the season after this up-coming season for Jacob Eason.

 

Then there is the BULLSHIT from Kirby and from MANY approved blogs that Jake Fromm will be our Starter 2017 season because of what I have touted as Jake Fromm’s accuracy since a kid I have stated on my blog here.

 

I’ve stated every day from the beginning of the Jake and Jake Show that Jake Fromm should be used like Hutson Mason 2012 and NOT PLAYED instead redshirted but practiced as if he is the back-up in case of injury.

 

Hutson Mason would’ve only played 2012 if Aaron Murray went down which he did in 2014.

 

Well accuracy has to do with the damn ball being CAUGHT.

 

If you hit the receiver and he DROPS it as not only Isaiah McKenzie did all year but all the others as well then your accuracy rating is NOT going to be good.

 

JJ Holloman flashed signs of BRILLANCE at receiver 2017 but finds himself BURIED behind ALL THOSE who dropped the freaking ball last year.

 

And some of them who have done so EVERY YEAR HERE.

 

The NFL selects the QB who CAN MAKE the throws and who DOES NOT throw interceptions.

 

So yeah Jacob Eason is a TOP PICK still DESPITE Kirby.

 

Despite Jim Chaney.

 

Despite the little itty-bitty OL Kirby gives Sam Pittman to START again 2017 too.

 

All these OL recruited last year and this year and now for 2018 too and Kirby DOES NOT consider starting them.

 

Kirby is a POOR JUDGE of offensive and special team talent.

 

Recruits well but THEN does NOT play them.

 

And criticizes them DAILY in EVERY PRESS conference.

 

I knew you knew I would say this : So I have.

Lake Lanier level at 1075 January of 2016 had dropped 15 inches to 1060 January of 2017. Now after raining 14 of the last 15 days Lake Lanier has rebounded HALF of that loss of water. Recall of course as THIS BLOG SAID ALL ALONG that the RIVER STARTS in Georgia and IS OUR WATER not Alabama’s. This is GREAT NEWS for Atlanta world class city who HOSTS the college football NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME at the end of THIS SEASON at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium also known as the MOST EXPENSIVE STADIUM IN THE WORLD EVER still hoping to figure-out how to retract the roof in time for FOOTBALL this 2017 season. April May and now June have been ALL RAIN – good for Lake Lanier and Atlanta and BAD for Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium running the costs up EVEN MORE already the world’s most EXPENSIVE STADIUM. College Football Trivia .com shutting-down tonight 5 June 2017. Han Vance GOES AGAINST College Football Trivia . com and states today on Big Hairy Blawg that UGA is in HIS VIEW # 2 in The SEC recently. What a load of hogwash Han.

It’s been a year now since June of 2016 that ANYONE has estimated the COST overruns of Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium due to all this rain the last three months here in Atlanta.

 

14 of the last 15 days nothing but rain.  The one day it did not rain much of Atlanta but not here for me in Dunwoody did get rain that day too.

 

Han Vance who offered to let me write for HIS blog but I turned him down stating to Han that I would DETERMINE what I wrote and when states today that The Georgia Bulldogs AVERAGING more than 4 losses a season for 9 years now and counting are in fact # 2 in The SEC.

 

?

 

Huh ?

 

# 41 in the nation Georgia Bulldogs for 9 years at THIS URL LINK vs top 15 teams for # 11 all-time UGA are somehow # 2 in The SEC Han ?

 

7 wins out of the last 27 games vs top 15 teams UGA is # 2 in The SEC Han ?  Try # 9 Han Vance in The SEC and # 41 nationally all conferences for THAT sir is what we are recently.

College Football Trivia states that THEY are giving-up the ghost tomorrow – quitting.  No more of their site after today 5 June 2017.

 

Well Stassen covers some of that anyway.

 

After 2007 – nine years now UGA averages OVER 4 losses per season – and “haters” Han Vance calls SOME GROUP he hates and announces to them INSTEAD today that Georgia in fact is in his view # 2 in The SEC in football recently.

 

Uh.

 

No Han.

 

No sir we are NOT.

Alex Scarborough ESPN : “Sophomore Jacob Eason has first-round talent at Georgia. If Jalen Hurts Jacob Eason and Co. don’t live up to expectations it won’t just be on them. It will reflect poorly on the league and its coaches for not developing them as well. With Smart so early in his career as a head coach Kirby needs Jacob Eason to live up to his potential. Retaining offensive coordinator Jim Chaney after a disappointing first season was a move toward continuity for a young quarterback but it wasn’t without its risks. They’ll either get Jacob Eason where he needs to go or not. Either coaches and players get the job done this year or the SEC will see its label of a mediocre quarterback league go from a flimsy label to being etched in stone.”

http://www.espn.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/129405/the-perception-of-sec-qbs-will-be-decided-by-development-not-talent

 

You can not argue that analysis.  I will tell you who else can not afford to have Jacob Eason not ever get settled-in year two and that is Jim Chaney.  His career is on the line.  And with it Kirby’s long-term evaluation of his new title of head coach anywhere ever again as well.

 

Indeed Kirby can not point to Jacob Eason and say it is HIS FAULT when Kirby refused to let him practice with the # 1 unit then threw him into the fire anyway.

Then Kirby sent-out wide receiver after wide receiver after wide receiver having no idea who his wide receiver was either.  It was like well I don’t have to have any semblance of a passing game and will do great.

 

Then last week Kirby ADMITTED : “Year 1 was disappointing. Any time you finish 8-5 it’s a disappointment at the University of Georgia. This is certainly not the standard that I expect to keep.”

 

More than anything it was having NO CLUE whom his pitch-and-catch combo was last year and frankly he is making all the same noises this year too.

How in the Hell can you play FOOTBALL in 2016 and not have any concept of what you want to do passing the ball or even whom it is you need to rely upon to do well ?

 

That Kirby stood-pat with Jim Chaney indeed is not without its risks but it does tend to indicate that Kirby indeed felt as well that he Kirby held-back Jim Chaney year one too.

 

Upon reflection that it was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT the entire year perhaps Kirby sees now that he can NOT simply rely upon his Defense and forcing the issue with a run on nearly EVERY first down all season long even into the teeth of 9 and 10 in the box against his extremely poor – God Awful – offensive game strategies.

 

8-5 ?

 

This is EXACTLY that which Kirby SHOULD have expected with THAT as his Offensive Game Strategy trying to run every first down into the VERY TEETH of EVERY defense lined-up to stop the run loading the box every game behind a small ineffective offensive line throwing to receivers who ONLY dropped the ball other than to Isaac Nauta who likewise was an AFTERTHOUGHT to Kirby.

CBS Sports.com Tom Fornelli says only 3 teams 2017 offer better odds to win against Las Vegas than Georgia Bulldogs betting on the UNDER that Kirby will NOT win 8 games regular season of 12 games. “Georgia did go 7-5 during the regular season last year! When you remember that and you look at the schedule this season it’s not crazy to think it could happen again this year. The Bulldogs get Tennessee Notre Dame Auburn and Georgia Tech all on the road. There’s also Florida in Jacksonville. Those all present legitimate loss possibilities and there’s always an upset possibility elsewhere that exists. It’s a value bet worth taking that Georgia will NOT win 8 games 2017.”

My PREDICTIONS for 2017 are that if Kirby is not AT LEAST 10-4 Greg McGarity will not face 2018 which will be a DOWN YEAR for Kirby compared to 2017 because of losses by Kirby after 2017 of 20 STARTERS. I also predict this is Kirby’s BEST CHANCE for The SEC Championship we are # 3 all-time in SEC Championships with 12 only one behind vols and are in our 3rd longest stretch EVER of NOT winning The SEC Championship in FOOTBALL 2005 being our “latest SEC Championship” so a dozen years if Kirby does not HIS ONE CHANCE so far 2017. Note please that in 2005 Mark Richt was # 3 of SEC teams in EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY poll : AP Coaches every OTHER poll. Note while EVERYONE is saying 10-2 some cop-out I say Kirby MUST be in Atlanta at least making this a 14-game season. I am predicting that Kirby SHOULD be in TWO (2) Bowl Games 2017 season but that he will ONLY MAKE 1 because of his blunders too obvious and continuing 2017 so far such as OL starters he named so far such as where he named JJ Holloman and brother are in being PLAYED as well and such as Kirby’s ongoing criticism of ALL of his players with tough love which did NOT work for Rodney Garner in his career either. But he should be in 2 bowl games 2017 season because only 4 teams have more talent 2017 than Kirby and because Kirby faces only # 36 Strength of Schedule. FURTHER I predict Kirby loses 20 STARTERS after 2017 and has therefore the # 1 number of NFL Draft Picks NATIONALLY after 2017 in 2018 NFL Draft. So while 10-4 is MINIMUM ACCEPTABLE for Kirby 2017 I am predicting 12-2 because I have EXPECTATIONS and frankly want us to be 13-2.

You’ll are pussies to say 10-2 in what YOU SAY is a year Kirby MUST get to Atlanta and thus plays 14-game schedule 2017 season.  I therefore predict 10-4 minimum acceptable in what I see as Kirby’s LONE CHANCE to win The SEC Championship so far and for YEARS to come and PREDICT SEC Championship for Kirby YEAR TWO 2017 season.

 

Don’t TALK about 12-game record as a some cop-out prediction by you when YOU SAY Kirby MUST make Atlanta 2017 with all this talent.  It is UNACCEPTABLE to NOT so quit cease and desist with bullshit about 10-2.  Give us your 14-game prediction.  You know ?  What Kirby SHOULD do or WILL DO or what your EXPECTATIONS for the 2017 SEASON are for Kirby ?  There is NO cop-out you do NOT know who opponent is.  With THIS TALENT Kirby MUST be there and SHOULD WIN with his schedule and if he does not you are giving-in to his WEAKNESSES on offense and special teams coaching and coaching decisions along with his weak press conferences to make excuses for YOU not predicting SEC Championship Kirby 2017.

 

And WORSE YET is your crap that Kirby is still a year away.

 

Like Kirby CAN AFFORD yet ANOTHER throw-away year 2017 like he scuttled 2016 on purpose our players to NEVER get that year back.

 

Or me.

 

And if Kirby does NOT win SEC Championship 2017 do NOT expect ME to come back NEXT YEAR and predict he will then.  You are so FULL OF SHIT.

 

Alabama’s QB is NOT Jacob Eason.  LSU plays too tough a schedule.  Auburn proved one player can make a difference with Cam Newton but that was Mark Richt’s blunder for telling him he ONLY could play Tight End here at UGA for him.  Cam Newton from Atlanta.  Mark Richt told Cam Newton he ALREADY had little Aaron Murray and that Cam Newton could ONLY play tight end for Mark Richt 2010 season because Mark Richt was committed to playing ONLY little Aaron Murray whom I said AT THE TIME would NEVER throw a pass in the NFL and HAS NOT as I guaranteed he would NOT.  In fact I called pre-game for Zach Mettenberger to START against Okie State out there in Stillwater not Joe Cox who went 8-5 our 2009 season with chronic shoulder and flu Okie State game.  Mark Richt WAS A FOOL.  I said so daily and you HATED ME for it.  Then I was proven correct and you REFUSE to admit that either.  I link your URL link blog and you do NOT mine because you’re pussies and I am NOT.  If I were wrong on Aaron Murray you would have TOLD ME SO as you would have on my guarantee as well about Mark Richt HAVING to be fired for what he DID NOT DO after 2007.

 

So now you RUN and HIDE and hope no one remembers.

 

Stick THIS up your assholes pussies the lot of you.

 

SEC Championship Kirby 2017 season.

 

This time LAST YEAR 2016 you were telling ME Greyson Lambert had to START not Jacob Eason.  Pussies.

 

My PREDICTIONS have been proven CORRECT and yours all freaking God Damn WET !

 

Haven’t they ?

 

Mark Richt pulled the SAME with Deshaun Watson not even OFFERING A SCHOLARSHIP to Deshaun Watson 39 miles away in Gainesville until AFTER everyone else ALREADY LONG-SINCE had.

 

I am going with 12-2 or EVEN 13-2 and PUT US in the damn PLAY-OFFS Kirby.

 

GATA and get with it Kirby.  THIS is your BEST CHANCE 2017.  You can NOT be a year away.  NOT.

 

You want a SUMMARY of my PREDICTIONS 2017 for Kirby ?

(1) 12-2 or EVEN 13-2

(2) SEC Championship.  It will be YEARS before Kirby has a team this good after 2017.

(3) Of all teams all conferences # 1 most NFL Draft Picks for Kirby after 2017

(4) Kirby loses 20 STARTERS after 2017 season

(5) 10-4 is minimum acceptable season 2017 for Kirby and if not I call for his head

(6) Did you GET THAT ONE KIRBY ?  Also Kirby Greg McGarity WILL BE INSTANTLY fired if not 10-4

(7) I am NOT waiting for 2018 which I know to be DOWN compared to 2017 to MAKE Kirby win or leave

(8) Personally I ran Mark Richt OUT OF TOWN ON A RAIL.  Me.  Little ole ME.  And you know it

(9) You HATED it that I was WRONG you said that Mark Richt HAD to be FIRED.  Now you have nothing but silence from you on topic other than you say Mark Richt should NOT have been fired.  Typical pussies

(10) I like Alabama’s QB but he can NOT pass the ball downfield and LOST because of it Jacob Eason can

(11) Jacob Eason is SEC 1st Team All-SEC QB 2017

(12) LSU will LOSE GAMES too many 2017

(13) Auburn will NOT repeat Cam Newton with their latest one-man team QB 2017 not happening twice

(14) Kirby’s LONE CHANCE for The SEC Championship is 2017 NOT 2018 DOWN by comparison

(15) Do NOT say AGAIN Kirby is a year away.  It will be YEARS before Kirby gets back to 2017 level

(16) Kirby SHOULD get two (2) bowl games for UGA 2017 season and will get one

(17) THIS is because the two dozen biggest blunders of 2016 are NOT GOING AWAY OVERNIGHT 2017 with NO ONE to teach Kirby offenses and special teams

(18) I predict and GUARANTEE that OUR BLOGS will wimp-out as pussies and NOT predict SEC Championship for Kirby 2017 and will NOT hold Kirby accountable for his BLUNDERS even though he himself said that they are UNACCEPTABLE going 8-5 because of his BLUNDERS across the board all of 2016 and our blogs will be SATISFIED with some low-level tier bowl game AGAIN and NEVER shall our blogs ADMIT we are more than 4 losses a year after 2007 a span of nine (9) years now 2017.  We have NO EXPECTATIONS as a program and it is the FAULT of the fan base The Georgia Bulldog Nation and MOST EXPECIALLY the BLOGS you allow to be where you get your “NEWS” from – pussies with NO EXPECTATIONS and utter complete inability to say more than 4 losses a year for 9 years is UNACCEPTABLE saying instead anyone admitting that is NOT a Bulldog.  Yeah I am.  You’re NOT but one of those pussies for NOT saying it and DEMANDING MORE.

“The 2017 SEC quarterback group is potentially among the elite in the country. The potential in the SEC is off the charts. The real potential in the conference lies in Jacob Eason (Georgia), Shea Patterson (Ole Miss) Nick Fitzgerald (Mississippi State) Jake Bentley (South Carolina) Jarrett Stidham (Auburn) and Feleipe Franks (Florida). Heck even the reigning SEC Offensive Player of the Year Alabama’s Jalen Hurts has a long way to go to show he can be a downfield passer. For the SEC to take that much-needed step in quarterback talent a few of these guys need to become stars. So which ones will succeed for sure? Jacob Eason – Patterson – Fitzgerald and Stidham when it comes to guys taking the next step (and Jarrett Guarantano at Tennessee if he wins the job). If they do the SEC will be much more than power football and defense.” Mike Farrell Rivals.com says today.

This is MIGHTY HIGH PRAISE from Mike Farrell who knows talent when he sees it as Rivals.com Recruiting Director picking Jacob Eason first – saying that Jacob Eason potentially probably is in his view Mike Farrell – the best QB in The SEC today June 2 of 2017.  I think so too.  Kirby better figure a way to get Jacob Eason the right play calls from Jim Chaney who has NOT thus far.

 

And Kirby had better quit RECRUITING big OL and start PLAYING them instead.

 

As well Kirby has been through two (2) Spring Practices so far and is now starting his second Fall Camp and he has NOT YET figured-out whom it is is his pitch-and-catch combo for his QB to throw to.

 

Last season I would have made that guy Isaac Nauta.

 

This season I would too and I would add-in this year JJ Holloman STARTING game 1.  This means he has to MOVE-UP in the rotation to the # 1 snaps with the # 1 unit at Wide Receiver and have Isaac Nauta in the slot.

 

All the other receivers can be EXTRAS.  You do NOT have JJ Holloman and Isaac Nauta and make THEM extras.

According to Mike Huguenin GridIron Now : “Jacob Eason has all the tools but does he have the necessary weapons to help him?” Who has the best QB line-up of all conferences 2017 ? The SEC is 2nd best nationally.

So the Pac-12 has the best quarterbacks in the country 2017 season but even they are just top-heavy and don’t have the depth of SEC quarterbacks across the entire league The SEC has which has the 2nd best line-up of quarterbacks in the nation 2017.

 

GridIron Now.com has a REALLY strong line-up of reporters.  Wow !  Their guys are extremely impressive and really hit on it.  The reporters GridIron Now.com has are experts in their field.

 

GridIron Now.com’s Mike Huguenin states that Will Muschamp will hold-back and be the problem for South Carolina’s QB Jake Bentley 2017.  How about THAT statement today ?

 

“Bentley’s coach could hold him back.”
