Academic Honor Roll Malkom Parrish # 14, leaps out of his skin as time expires today at the Gator Bowl to beat Blue Blood Penn State 24-17, leaping 42 inches and with both hands smashing the ball downwards so hard that it bounced to Daytona Beach !
Fine-looking young man, isn’t he ?
Sterling Bailey was all over their back-up QB Trace McSorley as he tried to heave it through his out-stretched arms on the Hail Mary Pass to end the game. First, Malkom Parrish leaped and then Lorenzo Carter repeated a 42″ leap both smashing the ball into and through the turf.
Penn State fans have been typing on the Internet after the game that they are glad their Starting QB did not play further, that their back-up QB did very well, better than he.
I find myself thinking the same about our former coach.
Dominick Sanders, Tucker High School, got an interception – his 7th for the season ! One of the national leaders listed on EVERY LIST ! At the time, Penn State was taking the opening drive right down the field on the strength of their NFL High Draft Pick QB and long pass after long pass. So much so, that I and many others were getting a bad feeling about this game to begin with.
Then, instead of Penn State going ahead 0-7. We kicked a field goal, and instead we were not behind 0-7 but AHEAD 3-0.
10-point swing on that one play.
Difference in the game.
Hero again Dominick Sanders, Tucker High School.
You know ?
Tucker High School, like Thomas Brown !
Keith Marshall had the game of his life with huge big runs at the end of the game for us, with no one else to turn to ! Keith Marshall has 62 yards on 14 gutsy up-the-gut carries against Penn State to save our bacon today I can tell you !
You’re a good man Keith Marshall, sir !
Best of everything to you sir ! What a game !
Terry Godwin made a spinning behind the back spin-around and leap in the end zone to make a TD grab and threw the longest pass of the season for us as Todd Gurley II did last year for us to a wide-open Malcolm Mitchell who just really punctuated his career here with well over 100 yards receiving. It was in the air 44 yards from the former high school WR and QB who also lettered as I in basketball and in baseball. There were 48-yard passes by Greyson Lambert this season, but they were a catch and run not end zone TD throw from mid-field.
Sony Michel was worked to the bone against the tough Penn State Nittany Lions’ # 1 ranked defense. In the end it was Sony Michel’s gutsy score for the final margin. And, this leaves Sony Michel with his name # 12 all-time in rushing for Georgia in a season, 1 ahead of Frank Sinkwich.
Sony Michel this season makes 16 Georgia Bulldogs who have rushed for over 1000 yards in season !
Sony Michel dragged his defender # 90 for Penn State Garrett Sickels from the 10-yard line all the way 3 yards deep for the winning 21-yard romp for the winning score today at the Gator Bowl where we had previously been under the fired coach, losers of 11 of 16.
TaxSlayer.com states on its WebPages that it is the sponsor for what it calls the “Gator Bowl.”
It was OUR DEFENSE that showed their strength in speed and depth all season trying to bail out our QB Greyson Lambert, who is just damn maddening.
At halftime, Coach Kirby Smart in a new Blue Blazer with brass buttons, swaying side-to-side throughout, was interviewed and said we played with a lot of energy today and a lot of passion ! When the ESPN announcers double-teaming him said the interview was over, you could see Coach Kirby Smart who is a fine-looking gentleman standing there swaying side-to-side nervous energy 39 years’ old when we hired him as our Coach, just exhale and you could see the palpable relief on his smile in front of 100 million watching him live with no competition on TV for our very exciting game.
We got up by 24-3. We lost one like this to the vols earlier this season, up by 21 or more. Greyson Lambert did all he could do to let Penn State back in it with their QB racked across the shoulder as he hit the ground on a penalty against Penn State behind that play. He left and never came back, ending his career on the sidelines. Junior Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg is draft eligible and I sure hope he is ok and just a shoulder separation. They said they took X-ray, but did not share results yet. Just that he wouldn’t be back in this game, per James Franklin.
In the 4th Quarter, we were still ahead 24-3.
Penn State was unranked, is unranked, and will be unranked at 7-6.
Bryan McClendon gets Georgia ranked in AP and Coaches’ Final Polls !
Bryan McClendon has balls !
He went for it on 4th down in field goal range ahead by but a score.
It was a horrible play call, too deep, and right into the teeth of the stifling front 7 of Penn State led by their Consensus All-America Carl Nassib Consensus 1st Team All-America 2015. We certainly had no one honored like that this season.
This gave Penn State the ball at our 25-yard line with 1:52 left in the game.
Austin Johnson # 99 for Penn State Nittany Lions came up behind Sophomore Isaiah Wynn for Georgia after the whistle and shoved him hard from behind and tried to knock him down. He spun around quickly to see who took the cheap shot, and it was this play that let us escape !
Penn State is ahead of Georgia All-Time in Wins once again after the NCAA re-instated their wins, but upheld their NCAA Probation in Football they are still suffering from.
Maybe Penn State was not the better defense on the field. Penn State players said it was, pre-game. And, John Theus said the game has not been played in reply.
It has now.
Click on these guys’ names below to see what they’ve done :
THE GREAT EXODUS :
Starting Right Offensive Tackle : John Theus Started all 13 games this season, has great future ahead of him in the NFL, will be invited to combines. Invited to Senior Bowl and accepted to Senior Bowl Saturday January 30. Working out at Ryan Goldin at GATA Training in Duluth after the Penn State Bowl Game !
Starting Inside Linebacker : Jordan Jenkins, Started 10 of the 13 games including all the last 4, will be invited to combines. Invited to senior bowl and accepted to Senior Bowl Saturday January 30. Has Great NFL career ahead of him !
There are the only 2 of the 22 in The Great Exodus (maybe 21 – see last entry below in this list) who are rumored to be NFL Draft Picks. Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins. Of course that graphic during the telecast by ESPN, is wrong.
ESPN spent the entire game, rooting for Penn State.
Friq Penn State Nittany Lions.
Starting Fullback : Quayvon Hicks, Started 3 games this season, jerked around his whole career here and never properly utilized because of some penchant for playing walk-ons in this we’ve got something besides winning that’s important here B.S. Started 6 of his 13 games in 2014, Started 6 of his 13 games in 2013.
Starting Inside Linebacker : Jake Ganus, Started all 13 games this season, declared by entire staff as the Most Valuable Player of this football team this season and I might add without ANY doubts, not yet invited to combines or Senior Bowl, holding out hope, got Married, great guy !
Starting Wide Receiver : Malcolm Mitchell, Started all 13 games this season, has tremendous numbers, one of everyone’s Most Favorite Bulldogs of All-Time ! Great all-around guy too ! Outspoken in a good way. Fun to watch by God ! When he gets the ball he turns upfield and gives it his all ! Great blocker and prides himself on his blocking like Hines Ward. Has a swagger about his stance where he leans his head and takes off. Hard to describe but it is Signature. Like a dogged determination to be great. Suffered from NOT having a damn QB both his Junior and Senior Seasons ! # 103 passing game and this man is IT. Has IT. Is IT. Great future in the NFL awaits. Can do anything he wants to do. Invited to Senior Bowl and accepted to Senior Bowl Saturday January 30. Will be invited to Combines.
Starting Place Kicker : Marshall Morgan, played in all 13 games, great personal tragedy
Starting Tight End : Jay Rome, Started this season, never had ball thrown to him. No concept about all that. Has 40 catches for 400 yards. Biggest question mark about this team is how Mike Bobo refused to throw to the Tight Ends last season and then this year the new guy – well, we all know Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor called all the plays for 15 years. We threw a weak assed pass toward him in the bowl game. Starter Several Games 2014 too, and Started in 2012 as well. This is the type of guy who surprise you. Seen it a lot. He goes out and proves himself and someone gives him a shot. He has nothing but pride for his accomplishments here, despite all the B.S. to not throw the damn ball to him.
Starting Wide Receiver : Justin Scott-Wesley, an exciting Starter for us Started a bunch of games in his career here. Thank you Justin !
Starting Tailback : Keith Marshall, dear God what is it that Keith Marshall is the guy who no one made any effort toward getting him the ball in space ? I pegged him for the NFL on day 1. So many big injuries vs vols. He has been ready to play this season. We didn’t give him the ball. He quits after this bowl game. He has a full season left and he quits after this game, but he could come back. He is declaring for the NFL Draft. Maybe they will see in him what I do. 2 of his last 3 games here, this God Damn Coaching Staff did not give him a single freaking carry until his heroics in this Bowl Game vs Penn State where he willed us to the win ! I’d quit too damn it. Love you Keith Marshall sir ! Keith Marshall was a Starter here for us at Tailback in 2013. He was a Starter here for us at Tailback in 2012 too. Has a Medical Redshirt Year 2016 for us if he only wants it ! Please want it sir ! Really hoping he is invited to Combines.
Starting Center : Hunter Long, Started Several games for us this season.
Starting Offensive Left Guard : Kolton Houston, Started all 13 games for us this season. NFL beckons. Working out at Ryan Goldin at GATA Training in Duluth after the Penn State Bowl Game ! Under-sized but frame can handle more weight. Invited to Combines ?
Starting Defensive End : Josh Dawson, Started 4 games in 2014 and Started in 2013 too, played in all 13 games this season. Thanks Josh !
Starting Defensive End : Sterling Bailey, Starter 11 of the 13 games this season. Also was a Starter last season in 2014 and he Started 9 of 12 games in 2013. Great guy ! Best of luck in the NFL sir ! Invited to Combines ? His QB pressure on the last play vs Penn State is what gave us the win !
Starting Defensive Tackle : James DeLoach, Starter 3 games this season ! Way to go sir !
Starting Nose Tackle : Chris Mayes, Starter 12 of the 12 games he played this season. Started 8 of his 11 games in 2013 too ! Best of luck in the NFL sir ! All the best ! Invited to Combines ? Said we never had spirited practices until the fired coach, was gone.
Starting Cornerback : Devin Bowman, played in the 1st 5 games this season after being Starter in 8 of his 12 games last season ! Also was a Starter in 2012.
Starting Linebacker SLM : Junior Leonard Floyd, not a sack machine. Does have a motor when he comes to play. Harasses the QB, not sack him. When he gets his ass in gear can take over a game by himself. Tremendous upside with the right coaching. Starter every game after he faltered on grades getting-in. Will be invited to Combines after he declares.
Starter as Kicker : Patrick Beless, got to play vs Southern University Baton Rouge, also was our only Starting Kicker the 1st two games of 2013 when Marshall Morgan was suspended those 2 games. Made all his field goals and extra points ! Thanks Patrick ! Sorry, we did not ask you instead of the fired punter, to try the field goal in the bowl game.
Starting Wide Receiver 2015 season Kenneth Towns ! He personally won 2 games for Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor. Imagine how those 2 games go without Kenneth Towns and his season. My God, his season ! Thank you Thank you Thank You ! Kenneth Towns Started for us 2015 ! A real success story in my book !
Starting Punter : Collin Barber, was our Punter the 1st 10 games then we made our Starting QB the only Starting QB on the roster, the Punter and watched him throw a pass off his back foot no follow through on a botched-fake punt. Just junk. Collin, thanks for your efforts. Sorry your career ended like that sir ! And, your bowl game wasn’t any better this time either, was it ?
Starting Long Snapper : Nathan Theus. Great job in the classroom too Nathan ! Yes, I noticed. Has been Invited and Accepted to play in the NFL Players’ Association Collegiate Bowl Saturday January 23. This All-Star Game sponsored by the NFL Players’ Association is to showcase collegiate seniors to the NFL.
Starting Outside Linebacker Junior Tim Kimbrough Started last 7 games of the season 2015 for us with strong NFL future, then before the exams lost his Starting Job last game regular season and came in off the bench hiding it from us that what ? Then, the day after the Final Exams, he was not allowed to practice and the interim coach could no longer lie about it and announced he was suspended for this game. He may have played his last game if it’s grades, and can not study between now and Fall. You can do it Tim ! We believe in you !
And, so we bid adieuto 21 and maybe 22. The last of the Dream Team.
These 2 teams do NOT like each other.
James Franklin beat again !
ESPN put up all the recruiting talent this team has, and we’re loaded and deep ! And, then about 10 minutes LATER, someone nudged them that hey Penn State has done just as well with James Franklin, as everyone knew they would when they hired him from Vanderbilt. Put up Penn State’s recruiting ! It’s just as good. Finally ESPN did.
They were biased in favor of Penn State in the call of the game anyway, so why not ?
Able to go ahead by 2 scores with them out of time-outs and the clock down to 1:52 after the go for it, Bryan McClendon says nah. Go for it !
Patrick Beless never missed an extra point or field goal for us, 100 % but was not given the opportunity to kick field goals this game ?
Sterling Bailey was all over their back-up QB Trace McSorley as he tried to heave it through his out-stretched arms on the Hail Mary Pass to end the game. First, Malkom Parrish leaped and then Lorenzo Carter repeated a 42″ leap both smashing the ball into and through the turf.
The SEC is # 1 in Bowl Games 2015-2016 at 8-2, and the Big 10 is 5-5 their season over with not a winning record in the bowl games but ahead of the lowly ACC with their losing bowl record 4-5 again as they always do in the ACC.
So many ranked teams lost their bowl games, that Bryan McClendon is assured of having HIS team ranked after this electrifying rousing titillating win over Blue Blood Penn State and their # 1 defense in the nation they said to US pre-game.
The list of who lost their bowl game among ranked teams is so long that I will not bother to try to list them all.
The Big XII Big 12 also put forth a losing bowl record AGAIN TOO this bowl season at 3-4.
I thought this was the Power 5 Conferences in some attempt to state that these other “conferences” were close to equal with The Mighty SEC ?
Uh, no !
Not so fast.
The SEC Wins Bowl Challenge 2015-2016 at 8-2 while Pac-12 pedestrian 6-4, and while Big 10 does NOT have winning bowl record, and while Big XII Big 12 and ACC both are sporting LOSING BOWL RECORDS again.
The Power 5 Conferences ?
You mean The Mighty SEC and then all the others adjusting their glasses as the Xerox commercial years’ ago now that said almost as good as a Xerox ?
Maybe I will list the losers of their bowl games for these ranked teams ahead of The Georgia Bulldogs who find Bryan McClendon is NOW RANKED in both the AP Poll and the Coaches’ Final Polls.
Temple ranked team, lost.
North Carolina ACC ranked team, lost.
Southern California Pac-12 ranked team, lost.
Choke-la-homa Big XII ranked team, lost.
Michigan State ranked Big 10 team, lost to The Mighty SEC 38 to nothing!
FSU ranked ACC team, lost.
Iowa ranked Big 10 team, lost blown-out 45-16.
Notre Dame ranked team independent, lost.
Oklahoma State ranked Big XII team, lost blown-out by SEC 48-20.
Northwestern Big 10 ranked team, lost, decimated 45-6 by SEC.
Florida ranked SEC team, lost 41-7 in a drubbing 1 of 2 SEC losses.
Oregon ranked Pac-12 team, lost.
The SEC might have 7 SEC teams ranked in the Final Top 25 Polls, 6 for certain !
As you can see, only 4 teams have played in more bowl games than The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs ! Of these 4 with more bowls, while 3 of even those are just not as good as our results and 1 barely better than The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs and that is Southern California.
If you are wondering about Choke-la-homa, Ohio State, LSU, FSU and Penn State, here they are :

Again, not that the previous coach accomplished THIS EITHER, because he did not by God because again he was NOT HERE for this win. He did NOT have a 10-win season nor win 40 games in 4 years nor 50 games in 5 years.
He did, most assuredly, however, lose 4 games a season average for 8 years now. THAT, he did ACCOMPLISH !
For which he was summarily fired !
This is not a goal for Coach Kirby Smart to be one of 29 :
Of course, his record against ranked teams was NOT Top 25 his last 8 years, and this more than anything is why Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor was fired, why he is NOT here any longer.
What happened to him ?
He LOST IT !
He lost control of this team.
Not only averaging therefore 4 losses a season for his last 8 years here; but, also 37-1 vs non-bowl teams and 36-31 vs bowl teams – which ALSO is unacceptable with our # 8 Average Scout.com recruiting ranking vs bowl teams record his last 8 years here.
And, he lost 11 of his 16 games at THIS stadium, the Gator Bowl.
They did not interview him, if he was there. There were 16 empty SECTIONS, so if he had been there, ESPN would have shown him.
He didn’t give a shit to show up. So, don’t add in this game as his game because he was not coach and not here.
In fact, coach of a different team even. The bad boys of college football. The ones who strut around on the field. The ones who are on NCAA Probation in Football as we speak and who continue to be until October 21, 2016.
January 16, 2015 Penn State had its wins restored by the NCAA and they were able to recruit a full class for 2015 for the 1st time since their NCAA Probation.
Coach Kirby Smart is to keep Georgia out of any NCAA Probation of any and all kind.
Coach Kirby Smart I thought looked good in the interview at halftime. I think the kids will love him.
Massey Rankings Top 25 Poll former Official BCS Rankings Polls just after the win, updated its Top 25 so far this season with one game to go and ranked Bryan McClendon’s team all the way to # 15 ! Wow !
None of the other polls, nor the NCAA on its Official stats, nor even http://www.Georgiadogs.com have updated their stats yet. Check back right here. Or, click the URL Links on the right here as you read this called “POLLS” and check yourself from time to time, as I do ! Imagine http://www.georgiadogs.com is still partying from the win ! And, have not posted the stats yet all night long ! I have certainly as you can see in this post and in the Categories on the right here, up-dated this entire site to the proper stats and proper URL Links to the facts, by God !
Not some bullshit theory that well only provide the good news.
Sadly both the men and women played like shit in their basketball games, jacking it up. Neither coach took control early enough. Neither called time out and said, God Damn It !
The Lady Bulldogs’ Coach Joni Taylor is not dealing with this four 10-minute quarter, which frankly I have a problem articulating as well.
We got way up early, and were off to the races against Texas A&M a really deep, well-coached long time, ultra-talented team of ruffians.
We sprinted out on fast breaks and made easy lay-ups. We’re deep this year, Joni Taylor unlike next.
You let the entire Starting 5 stay out there too long. You saw their veteran coach, get 3 players in VERY EARLY. You sat there smug Joni Taylor mam.
When you did get a TV time-out, you were looking all around the gym. You never said a damn word to the team, jacking it up as soon as they ever touched the ball, from anywhere, with any coverage.
You needed to at about the 4 minute mark, CALL TIME-OUT Joni Taylor man.
Put in 5 more players !
Give your gals a blow.
Instead, you let them get their own blow on the court !
So, Texas A&M got back and ran off 20 points to our none. From ahead by double-digits to behind by at one point 20 points !
Massey Rankings has 9 SEC teams in its Top 23 with # 23 being Florida who beat us.
Massey Rankings also ranks our Defense # 8 in the nation – not bad for no Defensive Coordinator and none hired for next year either.
Now, Jeff Sagarin moves Bryan McClendon’s efforts inside the Top 25 to # 22 after the exciting win !
And, he also was an Official BCS Poll. I think Bryan McClendon now has raised us to a ranked team in ALL POLLS as they come out !
Way to go guys !
Fun game !
Just let them motivate themselves and play by themselves !
Who needs a stinking coach, or Offensive Coordinator, or Defensive Coordinator – or, anyone indeed ?
The players certainly earned that ranking this game coaching themselves, and they certainly did JUST AS WELL WITHOUT Jeremy Pruitt as they did WITH.
Stick that in your craw Jeremy Pruitt !
Jeremy Pruitt who was the 1st phone call from Nick Saban, and who then after when friend Coach Kirby Smart and he talked, told Coach Kirby Smart that “Yes, I know Kirby.” “How did you know Jeremy?” “Nick offered me your job and I accepted Sunday 29 November. They are vetting me now.” “Me too,” Coach Kirby Smart replied. “Congrats.” “You too!”
Mutiny ? Well, yeah, when Todd Gurley II top NFL player now said then his last season here that he was sick and tired of losing and being mediocre. When David Greene has to speak up and say “Here we are in November and we still don’t know which direction they’re going in. It’s tough to be this deep in the season really without any identity offensively. Unfortunately it’s not just one thing. Offensively right now it’s very stale. Special teams has really struggled. There’s a lot of talent on the team. As an entire team they just kind of seem lost…like they just don’t know what they want to do and how they want to do it. A good example of that is starting FatonBauta when he has zero starting experience. It just goes to show that what they’ve been trying to do just isn’t working.” When Chris Mayes and Jordan Jenkins both seniors this season speak up the day before the bowl game and say that there never was a spirited practice in ALL their years here until after the fired coach was GONE. When Tracy Rocker has to speak up after the bowl game and label it what is. When the pussies who tried to ruin this Proud # 11 Program All-Time telling us that we’re just not as good of a fan as they and that it’s just as easy to call it like it is as it is to be on the bus get on their damn bus that losing 4 games per season for 8 years now 32 losses current 8 seasons is just fine satisfactory best Bulldogs’ coach of all-time and I guarantee he will be back after the Georgie tek yellowjackets’ game. When the coaches he hired are so damn mad and fed up with it too that they are fighting amongst themselves in public.
Yes, you have a freaking mutiny.
Damn right it was a frigin’ mutiny.
Good word for it Tracy Rocker.
Who had to live through it in his home.
Like I did.
If it was up to you, he’d STILL BE HERE.
And, we’d of lost this game.
Sure as shit.
Terry Godwin is the # 1 recruit in this damn state !
It was NOT UNTIL I SPOKE UP HERE game 8 that he had NOT BEEN GIVEN ONE SINGLE carry all season long, that he finally GAVE him even one snap.
We were dumbasses for 8 years after 2007.
It drove the real freaking fans of this program God Damn Friqin’ crazy.
Every God Damn Freaking media.
It drove us all wild.
ALL of us.
Except for you.
And, you sat there with your God Damn Bullshit FREAKING EXCUSES.
And, ball less bullshit.
Like Pussies !
Grow a pair I told you.
Shut him up !
Ban his ass !
Delete his post !
Don’t let him say that.
I feel sorry for him. I just can’t let him have his say ! There are too many who want a Christian to do it the right way and lose. That bullshit wimpy-ass lying son of a God Damn Bitch Friqin’ coach will be back. He’s not going ANYWHERE !
I know because there are too many on my blog who tell me that this is the best ever !
For God’s sake look at what he’s done since 2001 ? 2001-2007 in fact game 5 of 2008 he was 76-19. Win 4 lose 1. 80%. Since win 3 lose 1. And, if they ranked, he lost. How is that going to work for # 11 All-Time ?
You didn’t want to hear it.
He posts his diatribes all the same, sad man, all over the Internet. Don’t let him post here !
It’s just as easy to be happy !
Takes just as much energy.
Stick it up your asses DISNEYdawgs.com.
An open rebellion against the captain led especially by the sailors against said egregious captain, an up-rising, to rebel, to refuse to obey defiantly, to violently rise up as a group against clear undeniable grievances wreaking untold harm to the good of the common !
God Damn Mutiny.
Too bloody right it was !
I WON !
And, you were WRONG.
Weren’t you, you pussies !
Walk like a man !
Talk like a man !
Call it what it is !
You’re not feeling well today ?
No friqin’ wonder !
Jake Eason’s Dad says the reason why Coach Kirby Smart got his son’s commitment to stick when the old coach did all he could to squirrel it up for us flying out there the day before he got fired and KNEW IT, was that we hired Sam Pittman to protect his son so that he could play football and not baseball from concussions. He will be here on Monday 11th for classes.
Miami of Florida is a PRIVATE institution enrollment 16,774 Fall 2015. They were chartered in 1925 and began football 2 years thereafter.
The University of Georgia is the Flagship University in this state, is a PUBLIC University and has enrollment of 35,197 as of Fall 2015. We began football 1892 and were chartered in 1785.
ACADEMIC RANKING OF WORLD UNIVERSITIES :
Both Miami of Florida AND The University of Georgia are BOTH ranked in the Top 151-200 Top Universities in the World and BOTH # 66-78 in the nation, although The University of Georgia is LISTED first by ACADEMIC RANKING OF WORLD UNIVERSITIES where Harvard is # 1 and Princeton # 6 :
ESPN Alex Scarborough: “Let’s be clear, they’re both great jobs. If LSU and Georgia are open, the line of candidates will stretch as far as the eye can see. But for me, the question of which job is more appealing is easy. It’s Georgia, and I don’t think it’s close. The support is there from fans and administration. You’re recruiting in a state that produces the most SEC players of any in the country. And you don’t have to bother with the West.”
ESPN Edward Aschoff: “To me, Georgia would be the better job. It’s in the heart of one of the Southeast’s most fertile recruiting grounds. Atlanta is right down the road, and the facilities are only getting better. It’s also in the East, which has barely registered a pulse recently, so any rebuilding project shouldn’t take too long. And you don’t have to play Alabama every year. But don’t get it twisted, LSU is a great job. Louisiana doesn’t have the talent pool that Georgia has on a continuous basis, but you can pluck plenty of elite-level prospects out of your backyard However, you have to compete in the SEC West !”
10-Win Seasons before Mark Richt 12 but 10-win seasons are meaningless if you go 10-3 or 11-4.
We play a lot more games now than we did before, don’t we ?
Winning Percentage Season of 80 % or better before Mark Richt
22 Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Seasons before Mark Richt of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher
4 Mark Richt Seasons of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher
26 Seasons of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher of which Mark Richt has 4 – eleven NOT.
Mark Richt had an 11-win season in 2003 which was 78 % win %. That is not great !
Mark Richt had 10-wins seasons in 2005, 2008 and maybe 2015 of 76 % win percentage. Not great !
Mark Richt had a 10-win season 2011 which was win % of 71 %. That is not great !
There are 41 teams this season 2015 on-target for 10-Win Seasons and we have no good win – NONE !
Therefore 10-3 this season is NOT GREAT !
Mark Richt has had nine 10-win seasons ? Excuse me ? I debunked 5 of win percentages worse than 26 of our seasons and you want to make those 5 out as great of his 9 ? No. Sorry. They just are not. Are they ?
That leaves him with 4 out of 15. Here those 4 are for your perusal :
2002 when he lost to Florida unranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25 even with their win over us when he went 0-13 on 3rd Down Conversions relegating him to play 5-loss unranked Arky SEC Championship Game and 5-loss FSU # 23 in the bowl game nobody cared about and nobody watched.
2004 when he lost to a hapless Phillip Fulmer vols’ team who should have lost 4 games that 2004 season and he got blown-out by Auburn by 3 TD without extra points 6-24; therefore he did not even get to play for The SEC Championship. For this, he played in the Outback Bowl nobody watched and nobody cared about at 11 am.
2007 when he lost to 6-6 South Carolina who did not even play in a bowl game. And, he lost – blown-out by the vols 14-35 by 3 TD. The vols should’ve been a 5-loss team. For these performances, he was awarded the booby prize of beating # 19 Hawai’i in the bowl game nobody watched and nobody cared about.
2012 when he lost – blown-out by South Carolina 7-35. A 4 TD beat-down. And, then he 3 times in front of me told Aaron Murray No, No, No, do not spike it – that Mark Richt said he was certain that Nick Saban would not expect an Aaron Murray pass, which was batted down at the line of scrimmage with all receivers covered. For these performances he was awarded 4-loss Nebraska # 25 AP Poll in the CapitalOne Bowl which nobody watched and nobody cared about. Note please, that of these 4 best Mark Richt seasons only 2012 is after 2007 and that year he had 2 really really really bad coaching decisions – not preparing the team to be ready-to-play against South Carolina beat by more than 3 TD for 7 times after 2007 and this 1 of them ! And, then his disagreement 3 times with Aaron Murray that Aaron Murray wanted to spike it and Mark Richt 3 times over-ruled Aaron Murray when Aaron Murray CLEARLY DECISIVELY was correct and Mark Richt just wrong.
These are his 4 “best” seasons and the bowl games he earned for us compared to the 15 Bowl Games on the National Stage by The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program, many of which we Won and 6 of those named # 1 by this poll or that poll.
If you doubt that Mark Richt’s bowl games do NOT MEASURE UP to those of Vince Dooley and Wally Butts, here are these specific 15 Bowl Games. Again, The Georgia Bulldogs’ 15 Biggest Bowl Games in history for us are mostly Wins. 6 of these Wins got us # 1 in this Poll or that Poll – all highly recognized as Authority and used by ALL of our Rivals when THEY BRAG about how many National Championships they have. They use these same polls to brag, and yet for example you may not know we won the National Championship in 1966 according to the highly recognized and former now Official BCS Poll – the Massey Poll. Kenneth Massey has a very USEFUL Poll which has obviously been recognized. Is it the AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll ? No. It is one of the NCAA Officially listed Polls. You can DISCOUNT that at your own whim, but it is a National Championship 1966 for The Georgia Bulldogs.
More importantly, however, since my personal goal for us is NOT to Win National Championships which I WOULD LIKE TO DO, is the fact that these 15 Big Huge Bowl Games by Wally Butts and by Vince Dooley both were on the National Stage at the end of the season, everyone watching US ! Mark Richt has zero bowl games at the end of ANY of his seasons which are better than these 15 Big Huge Bowl Games by UGA coaches Wally Butts and Vince Dooley, on the National Stage EVERYONE watching us.
This is my goal for us. I would like to just simply PLAY IN SUCH A BOWL GAME, again. I have been to many Bowl Games for us in my years as a Seasons’ Ticket holder where I am offered these tickets and buy them. I find this most rewarding !
I am a fan of this program.
I go to the games.
I go to Home games. I go to some selected away games. I go to SEC Championship Games and have even gone to these when we were NOT there, did not make it – which is weird I must tell you sitting there and us not even making it to the game ! 2 teams I detest, and I am there watching them – yuk ! I am NOT a fan of other teams. You may be, as well; but, I am NOT ! I do NOT wish for my Rival to do well so that it makes US LOOK BETTER. I would rather them lose every game. They are OUR RIVAL ! But, I have no problem with YOU rooting for WHOMEVER your little heart desires ! Truly, root for whomever you like whenever you see fit to do so. This does not belittle me as a Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Fan. I do watch other games that we are NOT INVOLVED IN. I go to those games sometimes. I find whatever the outcome, that it is GOOD for US !
I go to our Bowl Games a lot.
I have been to over 2 dozen of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Parties. Mark Richt is particularly pitiful winning only 5 of 15 of these games – frequently against FAR LESSER TALENTED Florida crocodile teams than we fielded, or at least brought with us, even if Mark Richt never let them have a single snap at Quarterback !
I go to the games, and I live eat and sleep The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program. I have given up on Mark Richt and share with anyone interested now, here, why.
I LOVE the guy as a man, and as a fellow Christian. I am not confused that that is NOT what he was hired to do, and that what he has done is CLEAR and CONCISE after 2007, which I will summarize for you. I do this now summarizing his career here in YOUR TERMS because in my fandom I have read ALL YOU type on the Internet, and have READ each of you and your replies from 1977 to present. You knew me as BoWeevil because when I got started with computers in 1977 and prior at The University of Georgia where I have my degree honored Top 5 % of my Graduating Class and invited my parents to the Foy Fine Arts Building for the Ceremony for just us the Top 5 %, and computers have 8 bits in a byte and therefore limited to 8 characters. Boll Weevil is a typical Southern Gentleman type name. And, trust me I am that all over. So 8 characters was BoWeevil ! I have had some other handles. BBA I used in transition. I have had lots of heroes !
They are ALL Southern Gentlemen or Ladies and trust me they represented The University of Georgia in the highest fashion and The South – my Home !
I have been all over this grand world. All over. Many times all over.
I share this because of a fellow fan # 62 who goes to the games too with me and with many others of us who go to the games because of how Great UGA Football is. I have personal fiends such as Jake Scott, who is not at all as he is made out to be, either.
Look, we’re all Bulldogs’ fans of one kind or another.
1 is not better or worse.
I am THE ONE who for 39 years on the Internet and 59 years at Sanford sitting there with you and all these away games too, that you have greeted and read my replies to you ! I know who all of you are too. I remember you. I remember everything from age 4. I have this in my head that you and I are equal fans of this program. I know because I have been so active for so long. And, I am the 1 who does this research on US and share it with you for ALL THESE YEARS. This is I. I am the same guy. You know and have read me for all these years.
I shared that these are the good ole days when they were happening !
I share them with you again, now, to REMIND you – not of whom I am – but to remind you of who WE ARE that I bragged about us and you read my posts in forums on the Internet about us where we shared our thoughts together all of you and me.
I want you to actually know what I have researched about us about the games we’ve been to.
BBA is another handle I used for many years, you read me reply to you online with. It’s my degree from UGA where I lived in Russell Hall 3B with my roommate who was on Scholarship. I was not. I was a walk-on. I lettered in 4 sports, so I hoped I could play. All I got from it at UGA was a scar on my arm from the hedges. And, these guys are my heroes ! When a coach lets them and me down, excuse me I am still a fan of this program !
I have been trying to tell you this, as I do today again, because I research what I say online and have for all these years, 39, given you URL Links where you could go see the other person making this point with their analysis of it, not my own. And, because I believe we are all equal fans, and I want you to not be uneducated on these matters.
I know as a matter of fact that you are NOT a better fan than I.
I prove that with my every post, and have for 39 years.
Alabama, Texas, Southern California and Nebraska. And Southern California and Nebraska have only played in one (1) more bowl game than we have !
We are 28-19-3 in Bowl Games.
Texas has not done as well as we have in bowl games and neither has Alabama, and neither has Nebraska. In fact, only Southern California has done better than us in Bowl Games !
There are teams who have gone to fewer bowl games who have done remarkably well. Utah for example is 14-4, but that hardly compares to our 28-19-3. They would have to go 14-15-4 to catch us ! That’s 33 more bowl games while we would have to sit still 33 years !
Ole Miss is 23-13. They’d have to go 5-6-3 for 14 years where we did not play at all. Still, it’s a remarkable record in bowl games Ole Miss has ! It’s not better than us either. Is it ?
Penn State, now that their games have been restored which the NCAA had taken away from them they overtook us again for Top 10 in All-Time Wins moving us back to # 11, and in bowl games they are now back to 28-15-2, so they’d only have to be 1-4-1 which means they have a higher percentage but have not gone bowling still 6 years we have.
FSU is 26-16-2 so they’d have to go 2-3–1 so they have gone to 6 fewer bowl games than we have and still have won fewer bowl games than us. Their bowl record is fairly close to our own, if you discount the fact that if they played us those 6 other years, their own team was not good enough to even go to a bowl game ! Even Mark Richt could beat them then !
Oklahoma is 28-19-1, so they are fairly close to our 28-19-3 but even Oklahoma is 2 bowl games fewer than us both ties for us.
As you can readily see, we are certainly one of the very exclusive few best at bowl games, right ?
That is why I wrote this about the 15 Big Bowl Games by Georgia, mostly all wins, all 15 of which are BETTER than Mark Richt has even taken us to once. Let alone won any that compare to these 15 of Vince Dooley and Wally Butts.
However you slice it, Georgia certainly has gone to more bowl games, won more bowl games, and have a higher percentage of these way more bowl games we’ve been to we won.
And, 15 really Big Huge Bowl Games at the end of the seasons, everyone watching us on the Grand Stage, the entire Nation watching us ! This is what I want. Not National Championships ! To be there like these 15 Big Huge Bowl Games Mark Richt has zero of which compare. And, after 2007, even worse. He’s LOST IT ! Others have before him, and they were escorted out. This one you can NOT keep and say it’s not his fault he hired the wrong coordinator for the 9th time in 15 years and that will fix all. It will NOT ! You’re making EXCUSES and I am NOT ! I hold him responsible for NOT doing these once :
1942 Rose Bowl, # 13 UCLA Final AP Poll, Wally Butts Won Rose Bowl, Wally Butts ended AP Poll # 2 end November Ohio State no bowl game, shut-out Florida in Jacksonville at Fairfield stadium 75-0, beat # 3 Alabama 21-10 when Wally Butts was ranked # 2 at Grant Field, shut-out # 2 Georgie tek yellowjackets 34-0 at Sanford, SEC top teams 1942 Final AP Poll are # 2 UGA, # 5 Georgie tek yellowjackets, # 7 vols, # 10 Alabama, # 16 Auburn, and # 17 Mississippi State, UCLA is the Pacific Coastal Conference Champion.

1948 Orange Bowl vs Southwest Conference Champion Texas 4-1-1 Southwest Conference. Georgia Wally Butts SEC Champions 6-0 SEC. We lost to Texas Orange Bowl 28-41 and ended up # 8 Final AP Poll 1948. Vandie was # 4 in The SEC and # 12 Final AP Poll 1948. Tulane was # 3 in The SEC and # 13 in the Final AP Poll 1948. Ole Miss was # 2 in The SEC 1948 at 6-1 and # 15 in the Final AP Poll 1948. Our guys had all returned from the WWII. National Heroes, our guys WWII, Dad also fought in. He returned to home, Georgia too.
1959 Orange Bowl, # 18 Missouri Final AP Poll, Vince Dooley Won Orange Bowl shutting-out Missouri 14 to nothing. We were 10-1 losing in Columbia to # 16 Coaches’ Poll South Carolina of the ACC. We were undefeated in The SEC at 7-0-0 while four (4) SEC teams finished the 1959 Season in the Final AP Poll Top 10 Georgia, Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss and Florida # 19. Pat Dye All-America Guard 1959. I was at these games here when I recall Dad telling me Fran Tarkenton DeMolay, Dad was leader for, College Football Hall of Fame Pro Football Hall of Fame would fill the air with footballs for that era – beautiful Fall days on our beautiful campus which has only become even more beautiful since. He took me with his seasons’ tickets and specifically pointed out these points to me about the DeMolay that Dad was proud of. Georgia SEC Champions. Georgia ended # 3 in the Massey Poll, Number 5 in the AP Poll and # 5 in the Coaches’ Poll because we beat # 8 Auburn, beat Alabama, and beat # 18 Final AP Poll Missouri in the Orange Bowl behind Vince Dooley and Erk Russell.
1966 Cotton Bowl Classic, # 10 SMU Final AP Poll, Vince Dooley Won Cotton Bowl Classic 24-9, beat # 5 Georgie tek yellowjackets 27-14 at Sanford, beat # 7 Florida Gators at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville 27-10, beat Ole Miss # 12 Final Coaches’ Poll 9-3 at Sanford, Georgie tek yellowjackets would end the season # 8 Final AP Poll, Miami of Florida # 9 Final AP Poll who beat Vince Dooley at the Orange Bowl Miami 6-7 in 1966, and Vince Dooley had Georgia # 4 in both Final AP Poll and Final Coaches’ Poll. Miami of Florida was # 10 Final Coaches Poll, Florida # 11, Ole Miss # 12. Vince Dooley Won National Championship 1966 according to Kenneth Massey Poll which was also part of the Official BCS Polls because we had a better strength of schedule than Alabama. And, because we had a better Defense than Alabama with Georgia ranked the # 1 Defense in the nation. Georgia SEC Champions. The Junkyard Dawgs. Ole Miss had the 2nd best Defense in the nation and we beat Ole Miss 9-3 at Sanford. I was at these games here. Final AP Poll had Georgia # 4, Miami of Florida # 9 and Georgie tek yellowjackets # 8, with SMU # 10. Erk Russell Georgia Defensive Coordinator. National Championship Vince Dooley and Erk Russell.
1968 Sugar Bowl Tulane stadium New Orleans, # 6 Arkansas Final AP Poll. Erk Russell had us with the # 2 best defense in the nation to Ohio State # 1 but Ohio State Woody Hayes played the # 31 strength of schedule and Vince Dooley played the # 11 Strength of Schedule with players such as Jake Scott, my friend, and Bill Stanfill both College Football Hall of Fame. We had to play # 9 vols, # 12 Auburn, # 13 Ole Miss, # 15 Houston, # 9 Arkansas and still after all that our Erk Russell Defense was the # 2 ranked defense in the nation to disgraced Woody Hayes Ohio State with their soft schedule by stark contrast. The SEC in 1968 also had # 12 Coaches’ Poll Alabama but we did not have to play Alabama because we were undefeated in SEC play 1968 and Alabama lost twice to SEC foes 1968. Vince Dooley suffered 1 loss 1968 to Frank Broyles’ Arkansas who ended-up atop the Southwest Conference at 10-1. Georgia SEC Champions. Houston tied Texas in Austin and Darrel Royal of Texas had no one on his team by comparison with us and also lost to a lousy Texas Tech 1968 played a weak Southwest Conference who had only SMU and Arkansas. We tied the vols 17-17 at Neyland who ended with 1 SEC loss and a 2nd loss # 7 in the Final Coaches’ Poll 1968 # 13 Final AP and we tied Houston # 18 Final AP Poll and # 20 Final Coaches’ Poll at Sanford 10-10 who was an Independent. I was at these games here. Ohio State did not have any players like we had 1968. We played a great schedule and earned the # 1 National Champion Litkenhous Poll who voted Vince Dooley National Champions based upon our far tougher strength of schedule than Big 10 Ohio State who had only Purdue and Michigan as the only ranked Big 10 teams. National Championship Vince Dooley & Erk Russell.
1971 Gator Bowl # 18 Final Coaches’ Poll North Carolina. Vince Dooley & Erk Russell beat # 15 Final AP Poll Ole Miss 38-7 at Sanford. I was at these games here. We lost to # 5 Final Coaches’ Poll Auburn at Sanford 20-35 and that was our only blemish on the season finishing 11-1 same as Alabama. Six (6) SEC teams finished in the Top 15 of the Final AP Poll 1971 Georgia, Alabama, Ole Miss, vols, LSU and Auburn.
1975 Cotton Bowl in Dallas Texas # 6 Final Coaches’ Poll # 7 Final AP Poll Arkansas. I was there, and I was at all the home games too with student tickets and left frequently to go back and forth to the Railroad Tracks. I have scar on my arm from The Hedges as a walk-on. They were sharp back then and I was fast and hit them full speed. I brought back Coors from the Cotton Bowl to Russell Hall on specific requests in my 1971 Mustang 351 Cleveland I special ordered with my money earned as Top Pay AFL-CIO. We might have won the game were it not for Vince Dooley’s call before halftime that led to great cheers of Pig Soohey all halftime with their motorized hat. We had a 10-3 lead and Ray Goff, who always was replaced by Matt Robinson on every 3rd Down to bail his butt out, set the ball down on the turf on purpose to pretend to tie his shoestring fumblerooskie pitch to Gene Washington for us but Arkansas got the ball scored the tying score 10-10 just before half time leading to their unbelievable cheers until they finally exploded at the end of the game with 3 unanswered 4th Quarter touchdowns. We had that game. Vince Dooley blew it with this stupid call. This began the Dump Dooley – make Erk Russell Head Coach – although Vince Dooley would recover and stave him off, only later to hire Ray Goff as his replacement. Another bad move. Georgia was # 2 in The SEC 1975 Alabama undefeated # 1, but we would have OUR DAY against them at Sanford 1976 the following year and this time Matt Robinson shined in a huge big game everyone in the Nation watching us obliterate Alabama 21-0 Alabama # 10 and UGA # 6. I have that game jersey by Matt Robinson entering the locker room as a press I guess they thought I was. I still say we had this Cotton Bowl 1975. Vince Dooley blew it with the lead with a guy feigning a fumble tie his shoe with a 10-3 lead just before half-time the same guy who blew it as Dooley’s replacement and who never was the better QB than Matt Robinson either, and the same guy who when elected into the Georgia – Florida Football Game Hall of Fame quipped : “For which team?”
1976 Sugar Bowl # 1 AP & Coaches’ Polls Pittsburgh I am Anthony Dorsett not TD, but all their fans had TD buttons. I was there too at the Sugar Bowl and all these games here. Well, we did not win. I was stuck behind a post a huge pole supporting the crappy Superdome later crapped all over in Hurricane Katrina I also called prior to it hitting. I am NOT a fan of New Orleans. We lost to Ole Miss in Oxford but because we beat Alabama we are SEC Champions and 10-1 going in to the Sugar Bowl but it was Matt Cavanaugh who would do us in for Johnny Majors’ Pitt, currently QB coach Washington Redskins and 3 time Super Bowl Champ twice as player Matt Cavanaugh. We were # 5 and they were # 1. We had beat # 10 at time of game Florida in Jacksonville coached by Doug Dickey 4th and Dumb against us in a game I told my parents I was not at – only to be zoomed in on twice on national TV. I got the yard marker after the game. Well, we were there. I was there. I remember. The whole nation remembers. We did not win, but the memories last a lifetime. Georgia SEC Champions.
1980 Sugar Bowl # 8 Final AP Poll Notre Dame. We beat # 20 Florida in Jacksonville on Buck Belue’s pass to Lindsay Scott. Run Lindsay Run ! We beat # 14 South Carolina, Independent, at Sanford. All 3 on ABC. I was there. 12-0 untied, unbeaten, unbelievable ! National Championship including both Consensus AP Poll and Coaches’ Polls after the season. Georgia SEC Champions. Herschel Walker, no freshman is going to start for me. More fodder for Vince Dooley. More for Erk Russell, too, and finally he had to go make his name for himself with the nation’s # 3 best Defense AGAIN – also # 5 best offense – duh ! AND, there were no other unbeaten teams.
1981 Sugar Bowl # 4 Pitt Final AP Poll. Our schedule was just too hard 1981 – far tougher than Clemson who beat us in Clemson, but we beat all the rest and arrived to the Sugar Bowl I also went to 1981 # 2 best in the nation all polls. Georgia SEC Champions. 20-24 we lost without Erk Russell who played Football, Basketball and Baseball at Auburn.
1982 Sugar Bowl # 1 Final AP Poll Penn State. Vince was just not the same without Erk Russell which I said all along before he finally left. We beat Clemson at Sanford and arrived undefeated # 1 in the nation against # 2 Penn State but lost 23-27 at another game I unfortunately was at. Joe Paterno had Todd Blackledge at QB now of famous broadcasting career, and we had John Lastinger. You are made and broken as college football coach with your QB and always have been. Georgia SEC Champions. Unfortunately, I was there and knew Vince Dooley would lose without Erk Russell.
1983 Cotton Bowl # 2 Texas. Texas entered as # 2 and we were # 7. We ended up # 4 and Texas # 7. We beat # 20 UCLA, # 9 Florida, tied Clemson at Clemson, and won at Grant Field 27-24. I was at that game too and our games here. Clemson would end up # 11, Alabama # 15 and we # 4 AP Poll, same as we finished 1982.
1992 Citrus Bowl # 18 Final AP Poll Ohio State. Ohio State had played 11 bowl games against The SEC and NOT WON ANY until they beat Alabama last year in the Play-Offs 2014, which is why Ohio State is only 25-24 in bowl games while we enjoy 28-19-3 in bowl games – which as you can SEE – is quite the storied history of big bowl games on the national stage everyone watching us. 10-2, we had lost to only # 12 vols and # 10 Florida Final AP Poll Rankings and ended up # 8 ourselves at 10-2 behind Eric Zeier QB and Garrison Hearst RB who thought he would win the Heisman he came in 3rd, and did win the Doak Walker Award top running back, and the ESPN Espy Award Top Outstanding Collegiate Athlete Award. Watched all this from my seasons’ tickets.
1998 beat # 18 both Final AP and Coaches’ Polls Virginia and were # 14 both polls ourselves. 1997 we were # 10 in the Final AP Poll and 10-2 behind Matt Stinchcomb, Hines Ward, Robert Edwards, Larry Brown, Greg Bright, Kirby Smart and Champ Bailey and won the Outback Bowl over Wisconsin. 1999 we were again # 16 both polls and again beat # 19 Purdue in the Outback Bowl and in 2000 again we were # 17 in the Final Coaches’ Poll. In fact, Jim Donnan’s last 4 years we were # 12 in the nation won/lost record at 35-13, and Vince Dooley did NOT want to replace Jim Donnan but found Mike Adam$ make the decision for Vince Dooley when the only teams better in The SEC were the vols and Florida. In stark direct contrast to these 15 Big Bowl Games by The Georgia Bulldogs on the National Stage everyone watching us, Mark Richt then was hired by Vince Dooley December 20, 2000 and his best bowl win over a team ranked like these others by us in the Final AP Poll was that in 2004, Mark Richt won the Outback Bowl – more in line with what we were doing at the time. As a matter of fact, Mark Richt is # 18 won/lost record after 2007 at 72-32 – hardly a step up, wouldn’t you say ? Saw all this from my seasons’ tickets.
# 18 for God’s sake after 2007 at Wins for # 11 All-Time UGA with # 8 talent :
2001 Mark Richt stated he “knocked the lid off this program” the # 11 All-Time Wins Program with 6 National Championships, 15 huge bowl games us and them both ranked at the Top of the Final AP Poll everyone watching us while Mark Richt lost his 4th game 2001 to Boston College who was unranked in BOTH polls before the bowl loss and us with the 3rd most SEC Championships as you can readily see here in this post by me of that which I recall firsthand of it – only 1 SEC Championship out of 2nd place in The SEC – the Premier Football Conference, has been, is and will be – and, which Mark Richt is outclassed in.
2002 lost to a 5-loss should have been 6-loss Florida team of Ron Zook going 0-13 on 3rd Down Conversions in the game, a recurring theme for Mark Richt – supposedly an Offensive Guru who was in fact a back-up QB, never played and who was NOT groomed to be Head Coach by Bobby Bowden – who was FIRED from FSU. Mark Richt also was not allowed to choose the QB at FSU, but Bobby Bowden as well, who never took Mark Richt under his wings to teach him how to coach at all – nothing taught about when to call time-outs, when to go for it instead of settle for field goals, nothing taught about motivation to Mark Richt, nothing taught about when to play our best players and when to not. Mark Richt was NOT TAUGHT to be a head coach by Bobby Bowden. Bobby Bowden never taught Mark Richt anything about hiring a coaching staff. All of this came to roost in his only head coaching job here.
Vince Dooley was going to teach him these areas he so suffers at, but was fired by Mike Adam$ before he could. Even one 3rd Down Conversion 2002 vs Florida would have won the game – for example the last pass by David Greene who overthrew a wide open Terrence Edwards. Again, Florida should have been a 6-loss team on this play, but even this we could not convert.
How is this Mark Richt’s fault ?
Excuse me, this is his chosen QB when at the time I called for DJ Shockley to NOT be redshirted 2001 and to start. This relegated us to a bowl game against Final Coaches’ Poll # 23 Florida State # 21 Final AP Poll a 5-loss team after beating 5-loss Arkansas in The SEC Championship Game Georgia SEC Champions in way Down SEC 2002, 2003 beat # 19 Final Coaches’ Poll # 18 AP Poll in the Citrus Bowl getting our butts beat by LSU 13-34 in fact beat by LSU twice 2003 and beat by Florida and so we played in the Citrus Bowl, 2004 won the Outback Bowl again beating Wisconsin again who ended # 17 in the AP Poll and # 18 Final Coaches’ Poll, 2005 was another disappointment with us losing to a lousy Florida team when Mark Richt told us all that Joe Tereshinski III could fill in for DJ Shockley and win when in fact he was the only QB he could have started who could have possibly lost to that lousy Florida team who even lost to 7-5 South Carolina 2005 but beat us and in fact 2005 we ended up the # 3 team of just SEC teams in every single solitary poll behind worse than Alabama and LSU 2005 – Georgia “SEC Champions” losing at the Sugar Bowl that never happened at the Georgia Dome I went to to fall behind nothing to 28 before we even could all sit down from booing Mike Adam$, 2006 we lost 4 games including 1 to Vandie who played 8 SEC teams and we the only 1 they could beat – redshirting Knowshon Moreno don’t need him to beat Vandie 2006 – 2006 you recall Mark Richt told all of us that Joe Tereshinski is a better QB than # 1 NFL Draft Pick Matthew Stafford as well, 2007 we lost to a 6-6 South Carolina team who did not even play in a bowl game and lost to lousy vols’ team who beat Mark Richt by Biblical Proportions 14-35 a 4-loss vols’ team who should have been a 5-loss team who had also beat us 51-33 the previous year and so we beat # 19 Final AP Poll Hawai’i 2007 when in the big games Knowson Moreno got only an average of 17 carries and in fact redshirted him so we got to see him only 2 years, then began the real bad streak for Mark Richt since – basically unable to beat anyone or maybe even better put losing to everyone after 2007, seen all this from my seasons’ tickets, too, unfortunately and dog-tired of it all on the eve now of us unranked AP Poll going to JAX to lose to # 11 Florida – unranked team losing, that is what we are half the years after 2007 now.
There is little need to detail all of this after 2007 except that you want to make EXCUSES for him including Mark Richt telling us that Joe Cox with flu and his chronic shoulder keeping him out of practice once or twice a week all season was our best shot in Stillwater in 2009 when pre-game I called for Zach Mettenberger to start vs Okie State 2009 who nearly beat Matt Ryan and the Falcons today and would have had his receiver not dropped a TD pass thrown of 50-yards downfield.
We have the Cam Newton is never going to be our QB because he is only a TE from Mark Richt who said that Aaron Murray is a better QB than Cam Newton, and the debacle of telling all of us once again that Nick Marshall would only play db for us – that Mark Richt thought Hutson Mason was better than Nick Marshall as QB, only to watch Nick Marshall lead Auburn to the NC game – something Mark Richt therefore still has never accomplished here either as a direct result. He does not like dynamic Quarterbacks like Cam Newton, DJ Shockley and Nick Marshall – preferring game managers who have not done diddle-e-squat for him and us.
This on the heels of choosing Aaron Murray as his starting QB really in 2009 which is why he did not play Zach Mettenberger 2009 vs Okie State to win that game, because he did not want us to want Zach Mettenberger as our Starting QB which we would have done, and he knew it. Aaron Murray I said at the time 2009 would be his downfall as coach here and would cost him his job that and the lousy job he did in choosing his coaching staff. Aaron Murray would go on to have 10% of his plays either a fumble interception or sack and he called his own number more than half the plays – either checking out of Mark Richt’s call into his own number, or if his own number was called, keeping the play called.
For # 8 talent around Aaron Murray, he was # 27 in Won/Lost Record his 4 years as our starter, and no one ever was groomed to be his back-up QB even. Very frustrating for an Offensive Coordinator paid over $ 4 million dollars a year through 2019, whose offense is stale, old school, out-of-date and an utter failure # 90 Passing Offense last year with Hutson Mason and # 80 this season with Greyson Lambert – who lost his job as starting QB at Virginia for God’s sake.
As a fan at the games for 58 years, this crap of we do it the right way and Mark Richt is the guy everyone wants his son to play for has grown old – as has the AJ-C’s attempt to rewrite the e-mails sent to Jere Morehead and Greg McGarity as positive mostly they said while the Athens Banner Herald reports that of 28 such e-mails 24 are of the UGA Thomas Brown fan club and only 4 are of the we love Mark Richt support – give the guy more time after 15 years of meaningless bowl games.
In fact, Greg McGarity said to ABH today : “That’s why sometimes you’re numb to it,” he said. “… It is just typical of the type of email traffic we receive on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis. It doesn’t surprise me because people are passionate.” He does not care one iota as you can see, yet his record here sucks as our AD, hired to replace Damon Evans by Mike Adam$ who hired BOTH. We’re passionate ? So – you are numb to it Greg McGarity ? Sad indeed.
Mark Richt by direct stark contrast to all these great 15 Bulldogs’ Bowl Games on the National Stage everyone watching us against a team ranked at the top of the Final AP Poll with us, has not beat any team in any bowl game on the National Stage everyone watching us ranked as high as any of these 15 Big Bowl Games by Vince Dooley, even Ray Goff and Wally Butts – teams in the Final AP Poll for that season higher ranked than any Mark Richt has played in a bowl game and this year no different again, nor even played a team ranked this high in the Final AP Poll in a bowl game for ANY season as these 15 Big Huge Bowl Games on the National Stage EVERYONE watching us between 2 teams both highly ranked in the Final AP Poll.
Mark Richt has not won a single Big Stage Bowl game the whole entire nation watching him in the entire Mark Richt era including 2015 now too, let alone even played in one comparing to all these we most certainly did with Wally Butts and with Vince Dooley & Erk Russell. And, he NEVER will. Mark Richt is bad after 2007 and not as good as Jim Donnan even – whom we FIRED.
We’re a bad team after 2007, despite all this talent who 15 bowl games prior have put us on the National Stage EVERYONE watching us against a team also ranked at the Top of the Final AP Poll.
6 is 6 and are the same very polls who ranked your other favorite team with their 6.
6 is 6 and is not 2.
Nor is 6, 4.
6 is also not 5.

Again, my goal is not to win the national championship. My goal is to PLAY FOR THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, to be in the game ! To be on the National Stage, everyone watching us at the end of the season. In short to do what 15 previous Bulldogs’ teams have done, which Mark Richt has FAILED to do even once.
Let alone win one.
I have grown weary of this as it has continued, and when coupled with his FAILURES – utter FAILURES after 2007 with our program, and his arrested/suspended/kicked-off, it’s grown very tiring from Mark Richt. Tedious. Overwhelming.

“The English Bulldog in a red jersey has a lockdown on being one of the cutest mascots around. There is no denying the charm he brings at the southern institution, especially on game days. Sure, Uga might not be the most exciting mascot in terms of rah-rah, fire-you-up attitude, but the dog makes it up in other areas.”
“1. Georgia, Uga
Uga, the English bulldog that has been a fixture at Sanford Stadium for the last seven decades, is less a mascot than a furry icon. He’s appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, he’s been the subject of books, and he’s even starred in a full-length documentary.”

“As determined and published by the Pittsburgh Press, the University of Georgia is the only major college that actually buries its mascots within the confines of the stadium. Ugas I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII and VIII are buried in marble vaults near the main gate in the embankment of the South stands.

We are at The University of Georgia a place where we should be doing better than losing 4 games a season after 2007, an excruciating long time of 8 years. It is NOT what we are or should be doing. He wastes talent. He wastes the RESOURCES we HAND TO HIM to do FAR BETTER !
Instead, consistently he only beats the cupcakes :
36-1 after 2007 vs teams not playing in a bowl game that season
36-31 after 2007 vs teams who do make 1 of the 42 bowl games that season !
80% win % kick-off game 5 of 2008 at 76-19 is # 7 nationally his 1st 95 games but only 68-32 now only 68 % win percentage since # 18 his latest 100 games with all losses to the top teams and wins over just those teams who did not even go to a bowl game !
He’s LOST IT !
And the games he does win even are nobody teams. He loses the important games now after 2007.
He wasn’t like this when he 1st got here. Quit making excuses for him now after 2007, and trying to include in 2015 that which he did 2001-2007.
This is about what he’s done for us more recently after 2007, not what he did way back when 2001-2007.
36-1 vs non-bowl teams after 2007
36-31 vs bowl teams after 2007
He hasn’t done diddle-e-squat after 2007.
He has not even been Top 25 half the years after 2007 !
After 2007, he can not beat the Top 5 teams, can not beat the Top 10 teams, can not beat the Top 15 teams, can not beat the Top 25 teams, likely as NOT loses to even those who just go on to a bowl game that season as 1 of the Top 82 teams, and has in fact only a 36-1 won/lost record after 2007 against non-bowl teams ONLY !
He sucks !
Just why is that Mark Richt can not get us on the National Stage ANY year end of the season?
What the blazes is he going to do that he in fact isn’t doing ?
Quit making EXCUSES for the guy !
He is what he is.
And, it is NOT GOOD !
I am dog-tired of playing in meaningless bowl games with this coach !
You should be.
Shame on YOU for not !
He’s not won a single big stage bowl game both at top of the polls for season – Nation watching him Mark Richt era let alone even played in 1. Did beat # 23 FSU 2002 a 5-loss team & # 19 Hawai’i 2007 both long ago.
We’re supposed to pay him over $ 4 million a year until 2019 for this ?
Not my monies.
He “pulls a Richt” or “Georgia’s” too many big games. He beats cupcakes and loses likely as not to EVERYONE else, and YOU KNOW IT !
Quit with the hogwash that all he needs is Jake Eason or a new Offensive Coordinator ! It’s WAY TOO LATE for all this B.S. !
His religion has given him different goals from our own.
His roster mismanagement after 2007 has been clearly because of a goal other than winning, and his failure at his main position QB to develop them
# 88 Passing Offense 2014 with Mike Bobo
# 104 Passing Offense 2015 with Brian Schottenheimer
You saw something different against # 64 Georgia Southern in the last game than I ?
No, you did NOT !
Sports Illustrated Zac Ellis “I consider Georgia the best coaching job in the country because of their access to players relative to competitors with-in the state of Georgia who is 3rd nationally sending their recruits there in Georgia to the Power 5 Conferences.”
Mark Richt says : “You can’t become what you do. What I do is not who I am. If I become what I do and I become just a football coach, then you’re asking for disaster. My identity is in Christ. I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ. I know that he died for my sin and I am going to heaven when this is all said and done, forever. That gives me peace, no matter what happens here.”
“All the time y’all probably thought I was being coy but I really really didn’t know. Even on this decision – very very close decision to name the Starter. I think they all can get us in the right plays; all can get us in the right protections; I think they all can function extremely well and help us win. That is what made it tough. I can not tell you how many times it went back-and-forth quite frankly. It was very close. It really has been a tough decision because they all are extremely hard workers; all smart; all capable; all talented. It was a battle that didn’t define itself; no one really pulled away.”
5-2 now, game 8 now : update Faton Bauta -0- snaps at QB. None.
“There’s something besides winning that’s important here.”
“Teams are trying to stack the box against us Malcolm Mitchell said. Vanderbilt stacked the box and we didn’t pass the ball and you saw what happened. Until we get comfortable throwing the ball I hope our defense shows up.”
“I think Coach Brian Schottenheimer is a great coach. I think he knows what he’s doing. I think he knows how to coach QBs extremely well. I’ve got a lot of faith in that.” Mark Richt head coach who calls ALL the shots on Offense and always has – and none on Defense and never has.
David Greene says : “Here we are in November and we still don’t know which direction they’re going in. It’s tough to be this deep in the season really without any identity offensively. Unfortunately it’s not just one thing. Offensively right now it’s very stale. Special teams has really struggled. There’s a lot of talent on the team but sometimes the players just aren’t making plays. As an entire team they just kind of seem lost…like they just don’t know what they want to do and how they want to do it. A good example of that is starting FatonBauta when he has zero starting experience. It just goes to show that what they’ve been trying to do just isn’t working.”
Mark Richt has made 8 proven mistakes choosing whom he considers his quarterback :
1.He told us that Cam Newton is only a Tight End and would not be considered as our QB. He told us that Aaron Murray was a better QB than Cam Newton, and that he therefore would not consider Cam Newton at QB. Who is in the NFL Cam Newton QB or Aaron Murray the all-time worst won/lost record whose 10 % of his plays here were Fumbles, Sacks and Interceptions ?
2.He told us that Nick Marshall is not as good a QB as Hutson Mason and would only play db. Nick Marshall led Auburn to the National Championship Game – something Mark Richt has never accomplished – despite the fact that 15 times Wally Butts and Vince Dooley lead Georgia Bulldogs’ teams to Big Huge Bowl Games at the end of 15 seasons, the Nation Watching, on the National Stage everyone watching us.
3.He told us that Joe Tereshinski III is a better QB than Matthew Stafford. And, he started Joe Tereshinski III instead of Matthew Stafford in 2006. In 2005, too, Mark Richt told us Joe Tereshinski III is a great QB and is our best QB to start against hapless Florida 2005, when in fact, he was the only QB Mark Richt could have possibly started who could have lost to this crappy Florida team 2005.
4.He told us that Joe Cox, chronic shoulder and flu Okie State 2009, is a better QB than Zach Mettenberger whom I called for pre-game to Start. Which one is in the NFL playing QB, Joe Cox or Zach Mettenberger ?
5.He told us that Hutson Mason is a better QB than Brice Ramsey, Jacob Park and Faton Bauta. Hutson Mason had us with the # 88 Passing Offense in a horrible season last year 2014 with his floating passes and 3 times lost to an UNRANKED OPPONENT as our starter and 4 times lost to an Opponent who had NOWHERE NEAR the better talent we have at Georgia. With far better talent around him than our 4 opponents had around their QB Hutson Mason lost to lesser-talented : Nebraska, South Carolina, Georgie tek yellowjackets and Florida. South Carolina and Florida were 6-win teams INCLUDING their win over Mark Richt, and those 2 plus Nebraska were none of them ranked teams when Mark Richt played them with Hutson Mason as his QB.
6.He with this bad experience as a backdrop tells us Greyson Lambert is a better QB than Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta and Jacob Park. Mark Richt ran Jacob Park off. Is Jacob Park going to play for TCU Gary Patterson ? Greyson Lambert was chosen Starting QB after only 8 pre-season practices with the # 1 unit. None of the 3 got used to their timing with their OL, their WR, their TE, their Center. It was a recipe for disaster and dumb as shit.
7. With -0- snaps at QB ALL SEASON 2015 Mark Richt names for the biggest game all season, his job clearly and undeniably on the line, Faton Bauta whom he ALSO designed NOT EVEN ONE DESIGNED RUNNING PLAY for, when I called for Faton Bauta to be moved to RB last year 2014. 2015 we need him at RB too. He’s one of our more accomplished runners, is healthy, knows all the plays and without JJ Green to rely upon and AJ Turman not playing, really Mark Richt has little hope except to finally listen to me and move Faton Bauta to RB. Why not give Terry Godwin one single carry all season Mark Richt ? Quayvon Hicks why does he too have not 1 rush all season ? What are we thinking Mark Richt ? Talk about a buffoon. And, where we would all be today had Jacob Park not been run-off when I said I hoped he would be a 4-year Starter for us at QB. Clearly, if he were here, Jacob Park would start Saturday against Kentucky. I shall wait to add Jacob Park to this list as # 8 until such time as it TOO is proven that I am correct on this. Greyson Lambert has us the # 104 Passing Offense 2015 after Hutson Mason with Mike Bobo had us the # 88 Passing Offense 2014 ! Neither are anywhere near acceptable ! This has caused teams to stack the box against us Mark Richt ! Can’t you figure it out ? No. Obviously not or don’t care ! Just what have you been doing with your time Mark Richt ? It is NOT studying our team and figuring out what to do sir ! What have you been doing with your time sir ? What ?
8. Mark Richt ran off Jacob Park. He would have started him against Kentucky, but he RAN HIM OFF !
Mark Richt was wrong on all 8 of these choices for his QB. He has been proven to have been wrong on all 8.
Mark Richt Apologists post FREQUENTLY that Mark Richt is great not at Sanford :
National Champions averaged the # 8 recruiting class, while Mark Richt averaged # 8 recruiting class. National Champion head coach averaged 3 and a half years as head coach when they won the national championship on Mark Richt’s watch head-to-head, while Mark Richt in his 15th season this year without. In fact, Mark Richt has not even been in a single big bowl game at the end of the season on the National Stage everyone watching all this talent good enough to have won nc each year, but instead the most recent now 8 seasons and counting 72-32, averaging 4 losses per season !
Mark Richt averages the same recruiting ranking as the national champions have and while their head coach averages having been there 3 and a half years before he won the national championship, Mark Richt is starting his 15th season without a national championship. That is 5 times WORSE for Mark Richt.
If coaching is defined as getting more from less, then Mark Richt is as far to the other end of the scale as God could possibly put him. Mark Richt has the most talent but produces average 4 losses a season for 8 years now, while watching coaches of 14 other teams at other schools only be there at their school 3 and one-half years before they won the nc with the same talent as Mark Richt here.
You can verify this recruiting ranking by Scout.com by checking it against NFL Draft Picks and what you find is that while Mark Richt has had MORE THAN ENOUGH TALENT here to win national championships by Scout.com recruiting rankings, as you will find that the NFL also agrees with Scout.com rankings with Mark Richt’s 86 NFL Draft Picks 2nd best nationally in the Mark Richt era – on his watch.
Just last season Pooch kick-off to Georgie tek yellowjackets AND 1st and Dumb vs gamecocks. Not spiking the ball vs Bammer. Every time-out he’s ever called or not. Telling the players that they should shut-up about taking Florida lightly last season when they had lost 10 of 13 games at game time – got blown-out. Telling us that Joe Tereshinski III is a BETTER QB than Matthew Stafford. Redshirting Knowshon Moreno then 17 carries vs top teams – all losses. Starting Joe Cox with chronic shoulder & flu vs Okie State not Zach Mettenberger as I called on every blog prior to the game ! Telling Cam Newton that he would ONLY be a Tight End here at Georgia that Aaron Murray is a better QB with his # 27 won/lost record his tenure here with all this talent 10% of his plays sacks fumbles and interceptions ! Telling the players that it is his job to “temper their motivation” prior to Alabama game this season – got blown-out. Telling us that “There’s something BESDES winning that’s important here.” We were # 9 to begin this season. # 9. Then he makes a QB who had zero snaps ALL SEASON LONG THIS SEASON starter vs # 11 Florida and although a running QB, never called a running play for him. Despite 4 interceptions NEVER takes him out for even 1 snap ! # 88 Passing Offense with Mike Bobo the pseudo O.C. when we all know you call ALL the shots on Offense. # 104 Passing Offense 2015 with really you again as our only O.C. right Mark Richt ? Give you QB to waste like Matthew Stafford ? What for ? You LOST 3 games with Matthew Stafford, Knowshon Moreno, AJ Green and Mike Bobo as your pseudo-O.C. and played a hapless 4-loss Michigan State # 24 team in that MEANINGLESS bowl game 2008, sir. You waste TALENT ! When does it end ?
