Sad what passes for basketball around here.

 

I am not making excuses for our basketball at Georgia but the facts remain that the other SEC schools have spent their record-breaking SEC Revenue-Sharing monies to build them a new gym while we build our bank balance and do nothing to try to improve our basketball.

 

The kids do NOT want to come to Georgia to play in a basketball gym no one likes or thinks is good.

 

It’s 50 years old and out-of-date.

 

We can’t recruit our players here to come play in it.

 

Wake up.

 

Give our basketball programs a Merry Christmas by building us a new gym please.

 

With Andy Landers we used to be at least competitive in women’s basketball.  Now I don’t even want to watch us lose.

Chloe Chapman joins Lady Bulldogs’ Basketball team from Maryland looking first to dish the ball 5-star guard looks really good. I don’t have to tell you we needed this. Plays 2019 not now. Early signing period maybe 2 dozen better players in America. Every team needs a 2

I am ecstatic that we are able to reach into Maryland and pick-off one of the players wanted by EVERY team.

 

Chloe Chapman

Chloe Chapman is better than all the girls in the state of Georgia.

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time.  We are supposed to sign players like Chloe Chapman but I must tell you that we NEED a new gym to uplift our recruiting for men and for women.

HIRE US A GOD DAMN BASKETBALL COACH FOR OUR WOMEN. Joni Taylor hired as Joni Crenshaw really has NOT gotten the job done. It is my experience that the best coaches are POINT GUARDS not centers or power forwards. Andy Landers left Georgia # 4 best active head coach and Joni Taylor is ANYTHING BUT. Joni Taylor’s issues are NOT GETTING THE KIDS TO SIGN-ON and join our team. The DUMBASSES over on AJ-C DawgNation this week heralded Joni Taylor as one of Greg McGarity’s GOOD HIRES but the facts are EXACTLY the opposite. Aren’t they ? FIRE JONI TAYLOR.

.743 winning percentage Andy Landers

.663 winning percentage Joni Taylor (Joni Crenshaw)

 

That is 2/3 wins for Joni Taylor when Andy Landers was at 3/4 wins.

 

We have given up a bunch and hired a DUD.

 

This season is OVER.

 

Joni Taylor has won a grand total of one (1) NCAA Tournament Game in 3 years now.

 

We did not do SHIT again 2018.

 

We have not done JACK SHIT 2015 2016 or 2017 either and the prospects for 2019 are BLEAK.

 

We don’t have the players that a top 5 coach # 4 active head coach Andy Landers left Joni Taylor.

 

Joni Taylor is and has been WEAK getting the gals to want to come play at Stegesaurus.

 

Repeatedly the top players in-state have signed elsewhere and Joni Taylor has been wholly unable to go get the players she needs nor the players WE DESERVE.

 

Hired 4-13-2015 this blog reported that it was a BAD HIRE Joni Crenshaw who right after she was hired as a head coach to top 5 all-time UGA Lady Bulldogs’ Basketball Program with no prior head coaching experience Joni Crenshaw CHANGED HER DAMN NAME to Joni Taylor.  She has suffered in anonymity since.

This season Joni Taylor let her team JACK THE DAMN BALL up hitting only 35 percent of our shots while our opponents shot 41 percent.

 

Our opponents this season also out-rebounded us and our opponents had nearly 200 more assists than we did – JACKING THE GOD DAMN BASKETBALL UP like we did ALL GOD DAMN SEASON LONG as this blog reported daily since Joni Taylor was hired.

 

We don’t rebound we don’t pass the ball to our teammates and we JACK THE GOD DAMN BASKETBALL up.

 

It’s NOT a pretty sight.

 

It has NOT been.

 

It SHALL NOT be.

 

We committed more than a hundred more turnovers than our opponents this season which is OVER.

 

150 percent more block shots we gave up than we blocked ourselves.  All we do is drive the lane out of control and forcing the ball up instead of passing to the open man.  We blocked 80 opponents blocked 196 of our shots.

 

244 steals we made 281 steals they stole from us.

 

A team full of ball hogs who can not shoot their way out of a wet God Damn paper bag.

 

Again.

 

This season as last season.

 

And as the season before.

 

Failed experiment Joni Taylor.

 

Bring in top 5 basketball coach for our women God Damn it.

 

1901 points this year we scored while 2210 points our opponents did.  We’re NOT a very good basketball team and our program is going to be A LOT WORSE next year than it was THIS YEAR.

 

3 YEARS one NCAA basketball tournament win for our women and that over Mercer.  I am told that is Mercer in Macon not even the Mercer in Atlanta whatever Mercer in Macon is.

 

I am ready to END THIS BULLSHIT hire of Greg McGarity Joni Taylor.  Maybe she can make up her mind what her freaking name is at her next hire and stick with that choice.

 

She was NEVER going to replace Andy Landers and I said THAT here on this blog April 13 of 2015 and every day since.  I am SAYING IT AGAIN.

 

Fire Joni Taylor.

Georgia 26-6 plays DUKE 23-8 in basketball 7 o’clock tomorrow night Monday 19 th March 2018 in the NCAA basketball tournament. Tickets are $ 16 students are FREE. This win today over 30-3 Mercer is the first NCAA tournament victory since Andy Landers retired yet Georgia is # 5 all-time in NCAA tournament wins under Andy Landers. Today everyone off the bench turned the ball over. On the season we haven’t shot free throws very well but today we did

It was a great game today on Comcast ESPN2 channel 847.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day ! We BEAT # 3 Florida 5-4 last night on a walk-off 2-run dinger marking the end of 7 straight regular season LOSSES to Florida in a row dating back to 2013. Lady Diamond Dogs are # 10 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll in Softball and are # 2 in the nation in hitting batting a team .378. First pitch scheduled for 2 p.m. today and admission is FREE but with 3 squalls of rain the 2 p.m. baseball game welcoming AL Comcast 792 SEC Network and Softball vs FL no TV should see delays. 1 p.m. Lady Bulldogs basketball plays Comcast Channel 847 this afternoon Saturday in the Big Dance NCAA Women’s Basketball Game.

Softball Georgia Lady Bulldogs 2 p.m. free admission no TV

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time whip-around coverage Comcast Channel 847 ESPN 2 at 1 p.m. hosting Mercer at 1:30 p.m.  Mercer has a very nice new gym but Georgia is 25-6 on the season and expected to win.  Lady Bulldogs 25-6 are # 17 in the polls and Mercer 30-2 are # 24 in the polls.  KeKe Calloway from Forsyth paces Mercer with 17 points per game and feeds Kahlia Lawrence leading Mercer with over 19 points per game from Columbus Georgia.  These are definitely two who got away.  We’ll have our hands full to hand Mercer their only 3rd loss of the season.

 

If you ASK KeKe Calloway from Forsyth and Kahlia Lawrence of Columbus why they selected Mercer over Georgia they would BOTH tell you because their NEW GYM is far nicer than our antiquated out-of-date Stegeman Coliseum which we broke ground on January of 1962 by stark contrast fifty-six years ago.

 

This gym is NOT suitable for Lady Bulldogs # 5 all-time in Women’s Basketball Program.  It was 50 years ago.  We have the most cash on-hand of any NCAA school and there is no excuse for losing-out to Mercer on these 2 fine gals who we need and have needed for years now here at UGA.

 

Everyone has a nice new gym except us.  And we have the MOST CASH instead from our SEC Revenue-Sharing landfall annually – an annuity worthy of taking out a LOAN on a new gym God Damn it.

 

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

Lady Dawgs WIN quarterfinal 2018 SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament over Missouri and now face South Carolina 7 p.m. tonight ESPNU Comcast Channel 883. Lady Dawgs 25-5 are # 19 and beat Missouri who is # 14. South Carolina tonight is # 8.

Georgia assured itself of a top 16 seed.

 

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time are a hungry basketball team.

 

 

3-3-2018

SUNDAY 11 February 2018 Basketball Game at vols 24535 capacity Thompson–Boling Arena 3 p.m. today SEC Network Channel 792 Comcast same exact time as 2018 Advance Auto Parts Clash NASCAR FS1 Comcast Channel 875 FS1HD Daytona Beach temperature 85.

NASCAR’s first event 2018 is open to the 17 drivers who won a pole 2017 season.

 

vols do NOT deserve to have a better gym than The University of Georgia.  It is BAD ENOUGH that our players from HERE have to go up there to play in a real gym but for us to sit on the MOST CASH in The SEC whilst providing our players both men and women the Stegesaurus instead is just sad.

 

The Lady Dawgs today are 21-3 on the season and have a good chance to beat vols even on the road.

 

vols # 11 Georgia UGA Lady Bulldogs number 18.

 

9-2 vs The SEC Georgia Lady Dawgs.

 

Our piece of shit gym is now 54 years old and was designed by the Agricultural School to be a cow palace.  It is too small and too poorly designed to be fixed by putting lipstick on that pig.  And yet here sits UGA with the MOST CASH in The SEC once again 2018 and all the other schools with NEW GYMS but not us.

 

Built in 1964 by Ag School on their campus.

 

The Stegesaurus replaced Woodruff Hall with a seating capacity of 3000 built in 1923 and only seats 10523 capacity.  While Woodruff Hall lasted only 22 years The Stegesurus has stood there as an impediment to our men and women basketball programs for 54 years.

 

The kids in this great state play a mean game of basketball but categorically for over 50 years have REFUSED to play basketball in this crappy-assed “gym.”

 

Us with all this cash.

 

NCAA men’s basketball tournament last held a game here in 1971 and that is 47 years NCAA has deemed our gym UNSUITABLE.

 

Lady Diamond Dawgs have won 3 straight against ranked opponents and # 25 are 4-1 on the season

6 batters are batting over 400 on the season.

Team batting average is .418

Opponents all of whom are ranked teams are batting only .217

We average over 10 runs a game.

Our fielding is BETTER than our opponents which it was NOT last year.

Our pitching has a team ERA of 1.97

Our opponent’s pitching has a team ERA of 11

We go down there to Exactech Arena at the O’Connell Center and BEAT Florida in Basketball today making Georgia Bulldogs now one win away from 20-win season. We’re # 15 in RPI # 21 in the AP Poll # 20 in the Coaches’ Poll and in the top 16 Committee Rankings # 16. We beat FLORIDA in Gainesville. Time we played them THERE in football too.

https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basketball-women/d1/top-16-committee-ranking

 

19-2 on the season

7-1 against SEC teams

The Lady Bulldogs have it going on.

 

We beat Florida 66-57 but the game was NOT on TV.  You had to stream it.

 

The 2 stars led the way

 

ROBINSON, Caliya had 22 points and is a Junior

ENGRAM, Mackenzie had 14 points and is a Senior.  When Andy Landers quit she did not get to play in the NCAA Tournament because she had bacteria – weird and we have not been back since.

 

CONNALLY, Gabby had ANOTHER strong outing proving she belongs in the starting line-up.

 

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time have not done shit since Andy Landers up and quit the program to be a radio TV announcer but they sure are this year.

 

As I said we would this year.

 

We just ran away with the game at the end.

 

Our next game is Thursday at LSU and then Super Sunday we play 2 p.m. against Ole Miss at the Stegesaurus.

 

 

We need a new gym.

 

If you want the men to compete you have to build us a new gym.

 

 

If you are not going to build us a new gym with all this cash we have then don’t talk to ME about the men because we have not had an NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at the Stegesaurus since 1971 which is 47 years ago.  The kids will NOT play there.  You HEAR me yet ?

When Andy Landers up and left his top 5 women’s program all-time The Lady Bulldogs have NOT BEEN RANKED SINCE now this morning as I promised they would be on THIS BLOG they are ranked # 21 RPI officially and # 24 Coaches’ Poll but still unranked AP Poll 17 January 2018. It’s been YEARS.

Gabby Connally came from Texas to Georgia wins at Texas A&M the # 17 team with 37 points. She’s cute. # 26 RPI wins over # 17.

Gabby Connally just beat the shit out of Texas A&M.  The announcers were all over Texas A&M freshmen players and Gabby just up and stole the show.

 

92-84.

 

10 of 17 from the field

 

13 of 14 free throws

 

16-2 Georgia

4-1 SEC should be ranked now

 

http://www.startribune.com/connally-scores-37-georgia-women-top-no-17-texas-a-m/469272013/

 

Georgia is now undefeated in 7 games on the road.

 

Thank you San Antonio.

 

Obviously this is the signature win for Georgia Lady Bulldogs in frankly really all the years since Andy Landers up and quit the program which he had at # 5 all-time.

 

# 26 RPI Lady Bulldogs are WAY AHEAD of men at # 57 RPI and losing

 

This should propel the women to the top 25.

Both men and women Georgia Basketball are 7-1 with schedule strength averaging the # 250 opponent going NOWHERE. Women blown-out by Texas by 28 points in the only game all season. No show here at our house. SEC Big XII challenge. FAILED. Women # 51 as top 5 program ALL-TIME. Men # 74 with one good opponent played as well and LOST as well. Game coming-up against Georgie tek Sunday and Tuesday next week. Better not lose to them.

http://www.realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Men.html

 

I still maintain that if we built our basketball programs a proper NEW GYM like EVERY OTHER SEC school is doing with their SEC monies then we would recruit better talent and keep it at home here in Georgia like we do in football.

 

We need a new gym to be competitive.

 

We have little talent in basketball and it has BEEN THIS WAY forever.

 

# 74 men

# 51 men

 

RPI is NOT competitive.

 

We should and HAVE TO BE better than this bullshit

 

 

 

12-9-2017

Lady Bulldogs 3-0 including last two road wins in a row with FRESHMEN leading the way to the wins as it should have been MORE OF in football too 2017 season.

Impressive win on the road over Virginia who THUMPED us last year without these freshmen.

 

We play again Tuesday.

 

The Lady Bulldogs are a Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time.

 

We just did not recruit last year or the year before after Andy Landers up and quit.

 

This year we have a top freshmen class joining our team and we are TIRED of LOSING.

 

Que Morrison a Freshmen has LED the WAY for The Lady Bulldogs.

 

Caliya Robinson is our mainstay who will excel at the next level in the WNBA in her Junior year now.

 

Mackenzie Engram is a senior and she used to be our main player.

 

Taja Cole is a redshirt sophomore and she has really come on this year.

 

Gabby Connally is a freshmen sensation pouring it on as well.

 

Haley Clark and Simone Costa are trying to hold off all these freshmen we just added this year 2 more seniors.

 

With 3 more on the bench we are 11-deep including Sophomore Stephanie Paul.

 

It’s a good fresh start for a change for our women’s basketball team here at UGA Georgia Lady Bulldogs.  This season shows promise.  Tons of promise.  We should have a very good team this 2017-2018 season.

Virginia beat us by 25 points last season and that was HERE at Stegeman Coliseum and now Thursday night we travel to Virginia to take them on again 2017. Virginia went on to the Women’s NIT at 20-13 while Joni Taylor only went 16-15 last year. But Joni Taylor RECRUITED for the first time in 3 years this off-season and HAS A TEAM 2017 as we beat Wofford by 40 points last night here as Joni Taylor went 11 deep which she has not been able to do her 1st two FAILED SEASONS here. Taja Cole and Que Morrison freshmen STARTERS were GREAT. Maya Caldwell not so much.

Looking to bounce back and beat Virginia on the road at John Paul Jones Arena and get payback for the slaughter of us last year at our house, The Lady Bulldogs travel to Charlottesville Virginia at 7 p.m. 16 November 2017 Thursday night.

 

There is no excuse for The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time – to go 16-15 last year except that Joni Taylor did not recruit a LICK last year and now this year has 2 phenomenal freshmen starters Taja Cole and Que Morrison who combined to go 13 of 20 from the field last night including 5 of 10 from the 3-point stripe adding in 11 rebounds to go with their 32 points adding 8 assists to only 4 turnovers along with 3 steals.  It is quite the debut for Taja Cole and Que Morrison.

 

11-14-2017

Georgia Men’s Hoops beats Texas again and with THAT The SEC ties the Big 12 in SEC/Big 12 Challenge 5 wins each.

 

Georgia 59

Texas 57

 

2017 SEC/Big 12 Challenge tied this season at 5-5 so we’ve never beat the Big 12.

 

This brings UGA to 13-8 on the season and with just 4-4 in The SEC this season is going nowhere at this point.  We have two (2) players Yante Maten a Junior this year and gone after the season is J.J. Frazier a senior.

 

UGA Women’s basketball ALSO suffered in recruiting 2016 and ALSO has not enough real players.  2017 the women will have a good team again finally.  The women play this afternoon Sunday but the season was over before it began with not enough top players like the men suffer from as well.

 

This lack of recruiting at UGA in a SPORT is caused by the gym or lack of one Stegesaurus which is NOT COMPETITIVE an eye-sore and a huge damper on the sport of basketball for The University of Georgia.

 

Our gym holds back both the women and the men.

 

These are just two (2) MORE sports Greg McGarity sucks at and has his ENTIRE tenure hired here by Mike Adam$ as HIS puppet with no head coaching experience to run The University of Georgia ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT unless you consider 1 year girl’s tennis coach an Athletics’ Director.

 

At UGA I do NOT consider that or Damon Evans whom Mike Adam$ also hired as AD here Athletics’ Directors obviously.  Their records speak for themselves.

 

All Greg McGarity wants to do is to MAKE MONEY and sit on it the same as Damon Evans.  This then is prototypical Mike Adam$’ puppet.  Make millions of dollars DONATIONS to The University of Georgia.  Bullshit.  The University of Georgia has a one and a half BILLION dollar budget and our sports’ teams SUCK.

 

The RPI for the men is # 58.

 

http://www.realtimerpi.com/college_Men_basketball_rpi2.html

 

And Texas’ RPI was # 125.  So that was not going to help anyway.  Not that there is any help for 2-man team.

 

http://www.realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Men.html

 

The women have an RPI of # 107.

 

http://www.realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Women.html

 

We don’t have a man or a woman who can bring the ball up the court and neither team can shoot or play defense.  We suck.

 

You needed me to tell you this ?

I loved watching Tasha Humphrey play and our teams were great.  It was loads of fun for all.  We have several top players this year for us and next season are adding-in 4 of the very best players in the nation to them and will be great next season.  We’ve won several big games in a row to lift our spirits.

I can’t see how the men or the women can make the NCAA Basketball Tournament 2017 but the staff at Missouri react to their guy trying to take the ball from Yante Maten who just has passed 10 thousand points for us just before half in what ends-up being an important win for Georgia not unlike last night’s win in women’s basketball for Georgia beating Texas A&M a fine team and host yet another of the same tomorrow on SEC Network at noon Vanderbilt.

The Lady Bulldogs are just simply over-manned with just 8 players 7 who really play but next year we have a great recruiting class coming-in so we will compete next year.

 

The men who have the RPI to but with a bad record not deserving of an NCAA bid and they too are over-manned with just 2 players really.

 

But on this day it was Mark Fox’s coaching entourage who takes-up for Yante Maten.

 

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h127FXukCLs)

 

10-5 might give the men a chance.  We’ll see.  J.J. Frazier and Yante Maten are a tandem the entire nation would enjoy watching play their team.

 

It is more desperate with the women who field a team of 4.

 

We just don’t have full teams although Mark Fox always has a better bench than the women of late.

 

1-7-2017

 

Lady Bulldogs add # 9 Top Recruiting Class in the Nation for 2017 season next year. Wow ! Way to go Joni Taylor. The Lady Bulldogs are Top 5 Basketball Program All-Time and last year and this year we did not recruit like this. This is GREAT NEWS ! Gabby Que Malury and Maya WOW ! 349 teams compete for Women’s Final 4 and Joni Taylor just signed 4 of the top 90 ladies in America. I hope someone out there notices with me ? Taja Cole noticed too.

This is as exciting a recruiting signing as I can recall with Gabby Que Malury and Maya all signing in the early signing period today for The Lady Bulldogs Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program of All-Time.  It seems that Joni Taylor does resonate with the gals.  We certainly thought she would.

 

Joni Taylor an Alabama star went out-of-state and in-state and signed 4 top players in one year today.  Joni got in-state star Que Morrison whom everyone wanted out of McEachern.

 

Joni Taylor went in to talent-rich Texas and stole Gabby Connally to join Que Morrison in the backcourt for the 4 years following this one.

 

These 4 gals certainly put Joni Taylor on the map as an up-and-comer.  I wouldn’t have expected anything less from Andy Landers’ pick himself.

 

To outdo herself Joni Taylor went into North Carolina and stole from them Maya Caldwell who is 6′ 1″ and can play wing.

 

And to top all this off Joni Taylor went into Virginia and stole one of their top players too Malury Bates a 6′ 3″ inside man who also thinks The SEC is the place to play and Georgia a GREAT SCHOOL.

 

I am so excited.

 

When I was growing-up I practiced basketball and loved it when the women would come-out and watch us then practice themselves.  They brought the ball up to mid-court and passed it across.  It wasn’t basketball the women played.  Nowadays the WNBA has jumped onto the scene and our Lady Dawgs are a huge part of that and always have been.

 

Although I don’t give a hoot about NBA because you can get in free at the end of the games and the games are always won or lost at the very end only I find myself clicking some to see our heroes here in the WNBA and how well our gals do after following them every day here.

 

I dated a gal on LSU’s women’s basketball team and she was taller than I so I took her inside and dominated her.  She never beat me – not in basketball one-on-one.

 

I don’t miss our women’s games EVER.  I love it !

 

Joni Taylor is the # 4 best Alabama player ever after being the 1997 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Mississippi as a high school top recruit herself.  So she can play the game and the top recruits in the nation are certainly watching her success and listening to her when she talks.  Andy Landers’ endorsement in hand Joni Crenshaw TAYLOR was his right-hand man at the of end of his career as Top 7 All-Time in Basketball Wins Men’s or Women’s at one school The Lady Bulldogs.

 

Dad took me to all the games at Cross Keys at Oglethorpe and at Georgie tek yellowjackets when I was a child and I grew-up with a fine basketball court which I still maintain and play on.  But after college I became a huge women’s basketball fan because of how good Andy Landers is to University of Georgia Women’s Basketball.  I would never go to Georgie tek and I love our sports.  That Joni Taylor won the Whack Hyder Coach of the Year Award last year does mean something to me.

 

I had wondered about Holly Warlick with the vols and know she wishes she had signed what Joni Taylor just did.

 

Then the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) awarded first Holly Warlick  4 years ago and now Joni Taylor both The Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year Award.

 

Now Joni Taylor goes out and signs this class today.

 

This is the highlight of Joni Taylor’s illustrious career in women’s basketball and I just think the gals think that Joni Taylor is a stronger player at Alabama than Holly Warlick was way back when for Pat Summitt.

 

I still cry when I think of Pat Summitt.

 

Maybe this class will get us the gym I have wanted since I was at UGA.

 

We are allowed 15 scholarships and there are 349 teams.

 

Did you hear me ?

 

349 teams in women’s college basketball Division 1 all competing for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Women’s Division I Basketball Championship.

 

We’re # 5 All-Time.

 

# 5 of 349 teams.

 

I do not recall when we had a class this great and I have followed our women’s basketball program from the day we started it.

 

We’ve had great players of that there is no doubt but we’ve NEVER signed 4 in one class.

 

Of the top 10 thousand ladies in the nation Joni Taylor just signed 4 of the top 90.

 

If that does not make you stand-up and notice it certainly should.

349 teams compete for Women’s Final 4 and Joni Taylor just signed 4 of the top 90 ladies in America.  I hope someone out there notices with me ?

Joni Taylor also is getting after a year lay-off because of NCAA rules on transferring Taja Cole a transfer from Louisville coach Jeff Walz.  A 5-Star Guard Taja Cole is one of two players Louisville coach Jeff Walz lost over the off-season both transferring-out.  Taja Cole only got to play 3 points and 2 assists per game for Jeff Walz who was ousted in the 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament.

 

In Round one where Louisville won Taja Cole played 20 minutes then in Round 2 when Louisville lost she logged only 6 minutes playing time for one of the very best players in the nation.  You just can not lose an All-American like Taja Cole Ranked 13th overall by Prospects Nations and 26th overall by espnW in the nation last year.  With her transferring this year she won’t get to play 2016-2017 but will in 2017.

 

Taja Cole was the Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Virginia averaging 20 points and 6 assists and also was a McDonald’s All-American where she scored 13 points, five rebounds, and two steals in 17 minutes in the McDonald’s All-American Game.  Taja Cole also was invited to the 2013 U.S. U-16 National Team Trials.

 

Thank you Taja Cole.

Stephanie Paul is a tremendous inside player and should be a big help in our long season this year. Obviously Joni Taylor wants her to play within herself and first game jitters are really to be expected especially of a true freshman unless your name is Jacob Eason.

Stephanie Paul was given a big role in The Lady Dawgs’ first game this season and nearly got benched game 2 for missing all her shots adding 4 turnovers, but she got to play some in game 2 anyway and has promise.

 

Stephanie Paul can put up double-doubles in rebounds and points if she gets the rebounds she shows she can get in the 2 games already and gets open underneath. The SEC is a tough league to play in. We are going to need her to contribute rebounds without turning the ball over another area troubling her start and to get open under the offensive glass for dishes.

 

We need to drive the lane well in order to find Stephanie Paul and she needs to be looking for the ball and practicing the shots she will get under pressure. One of the keys to that is using the backboard underneath. You don’t shoot for the hoop in The SEC underneath but bank it. So work on those shots and the scoring will come in time.

 

Driving the lane and kicking it is key to basketball.

 

What Stephanie Paul also contributes as we have seen in the game already here are steals on defense. She is a presence inside. 4 years from now I expect Stephanie Paul to be a solid player for us. It’s always so exciting to get a shot put and discus state champion from the state of Florida to play on our women’s basketball team.

 

No team can play well without an inside game and you must have a 6th man or 7th man contributing in The SEC and throughout the long seasons the next four years.

 

I’d say Joni Taylor is bringing her along well and doing a great job of recruiting for year 3.  I am really excited about our players coming-in for next year.  I was a little disappointed in our class year 2 Joni Taylor.

 

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Basketball Program All-Time – Andy Landers gave you a LOT for year one last year Joni Taylor.  When the season was over your gals were worn-out and we didn’t achieve what we needed to just when we had to at the end of the season.

 

Congratulations to you and your husband Darius on the exciting birth of your daughter Jacie to our 2nd head coach ever Joni Taylor.

 

When we promoted you I told you then you had to recruit well.  You have certainly come through on that for next year Joni. Thank you.

 

We’re rooting for you Stephanie Paul. We’re going to need you this year more than next year with the outstanding class Joni Taylor has coming-in 2017. This off-season we added far less than next year already signed with the early signing period just now November 15 2016 for the 2017 season beginning this time next year.

 

Stephanie Paul comes from a family of 11. Eleven ! Her mom Marie and dad Jean have 9 kids so Stephanie Paul is used to having to work for what she gets. I came from a big family myself so I know you have to want it to succeed and frankly if you are timid you’ll go hungry.

 

I’m not.

 

Hungry or timid.

 

I assert myself in life and learned that at home.

 

I am looking forward to seeing Stephanie Paul being an even bigger contributor as this season progresses.

 

There is no pun intended.

 

Well maybe there is.

 

She’s a big gal. She is only 6’ 1” tall but her presence inside is an immovable object and one we can set the post with down low or up high. And she dishes the ball well.

Caliya Robinson gets to play in the second game but not the first game and comes-up huge after sitting-out a game. She made 76% of her shots including 77% from the field and 75% from the free throw line – just AWESOME. Caliya Robinson added 4 blocks 4 rebounds only 1 foul and a steal for 24 points. The Lady Dawgs are now 2-0 on the season and face-off again Wednesday at 7 p.m. the 16th and then the 20th Sunday against Georgie tek yellowjackets whom The Lady Bulldogs OWN at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Caliya Robinson really put-on a show today on both ends of the court in the win for the undefeated Lady Bulldogs.

 

11-13-2016

Simone Costa a sharpshooter from Lisbon keys Lady Bulldogs’ Opening Game WIN scoring double-digits in her first game with us including 3 of 3 from the free throw line and had 3 assists and a rebound and a steal in 26 minutes action.

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Basketball Program All-Time – opened our 2016-2017 season with a Win.

 

We did commit 17 turnovers which we will have to fix but overcame that with 53 impressive rebounds 26 on the offensive glass and 27 defensive glass.  This was mostly a result of poor shooting which has marked this team for years now.

 

Mackenzie Engram is our superstar and quite the doll.  She shot 7 of 12 from the field and added 7 rebounds 3 assists a block and a steal for 15 points to pace The Lady Bulldogs.

 

Pachis Roberts had 14 points 11 rebounds and was perfect from the free throw line making 4 of 4.

 

Halle Washington had 10 rebounds and was 4 of 6 from the charity stripe which is very good.

 

Shanea Armbrister added 10 rebounds.

 

Haley Clark added 9 points 2 assists and 2 steals.

 

So we go 6-deep and a solid effort from all 6.  We will have to have  a lot more help from the rest of the bench if we’re going to have a good season.

 

We didn’t really add what we needed to in the off-season.  We need at least 2 more top players to join-in to do well.

 

We’ll have to be more selective of our shots dishing the ball to the gals who can shoot.

 

We did allow an opponent to score 21 points on us.  We can’t let one player score 21 points.  We did not commit fouls and have to play tougher against opponents who have a top scorer.  Other than that it was a good defensive effort.

 

Caliya Robinson did not play.

 

All games are on TV at this URL Link.  We play next tomorrow Sunday at 2 p.m. against a very good Mercer squad.

The men lost in their opener but added a top player in recruiting – something Mark Fox manages to do.

Simone Costa a very pretty gal athletic top-drawer point guard joins The Lady Bulldogs with Kortney Eisenman who is tough underneath at 6′ 3″ and top 15 in the nation from Ohio and Stephanie Paul a Forward # 20 nationally from Naples Florida where all the millionaires live while Bianca Blanaru can not play this up-coming season but will the next 2 years hereafter. It is a change in-guard for us.

Shacobia Barbee Merritt Hempe Tiaria Griffin and Marjorie Butler are all 4 gone now as seniors last season along with Terry’s older sister Terryuana Godwin .

 

I am excited for the ladies this coming season as we will take better shots from now on.

 

We return Caliya Robinson 8 pts Pachis Roberts 8 pts Halle Washington 4 pts Mackenzie Engram 8 pts all have proven themselves as major contributors too.

 

We’ll see how it works out.  There are no headliners.  There is no star.  There is no one who jacks the ball up and misses all her shots.  This is a lunch pail crew who could prove to be deep.

 

With 22 WNBA draft picks since 1999 The Lady Bulldogs were looking for several more stars in the WNBA joining their ranks in Shacobia Barbee and Tiaria Griffin last Thursday however only Shacobia Barbee was.  This is a mistake by the WNBA as Tiaria Griffin would be a long-time winner in the WNBA.

Lady 21-9 Bulldogs 8-seed in South Bend Indiana to face Indiana NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament Saturday March 18th 2016 at 9 p.m. – our 32nd NCAA Women’s Tournament for our Lady Bulldogs

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_NCAA_Women%27s_Division_I_Basketball_Tournament

 

Imagine that 32 times The Lady Bulldogs have played in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Division 1 Tournament.

 

That’s the good news.

 

The bad news is that Starter Shacobia Barbee will not be playing and is out for the season with a broken leg and that Starter Mackenzie Engram also will not be playing and is also out for the season with an upper respiratory virus that sidelined her since the beginning of January and is also out for the season although I thought Mackenzie Engram looked healthy in the last game on the sidelines and typically this period of off with her illness has now come and gone.  This is the 15th game in a row Mackenzie Engram has missed since last Starting January 10.  This is the 4th game in a row  Shacobia Barbee will have missed since having her leg broken this year against Florida.

2016 NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Tournament reveals names today Monday March 14 while men snubbed yesterday for playing too tough a schedule (and a loss to Auburn) 19-12. Lady Bulldogs face a bigger burden as they are missing their best players Shacobia Barbee broken leg and Mackenzie Engram upper respiratory infection both out and been out rest year. Men have a full squad. Both men & women’s basketball suffers from Stegesaurus causing best players in-state to play elsewhere while Stegesaurus has not hosted NCAA men’s tourney game since 1971 nearly 50 years.

What is the problem with both men’s and women’s basketball for UGA ?

 

The best players in-state have chosen to play elsewhere for 50 years.

 

The men play in the NIT and Andy Landers refused to accept the NIT last year for the women.  That’s bullshit.  Everyone knows the NCAA Tournament is not the best 68 teams anyway.  It is designed for the 32 automatic qualifiers from each conference and then the remaining 36 teams.  Men’s tourney starts tomorrow March 15.   Was Georgia men’s basketball 1 of the top 36 in the nation ?  Perhaps not.

 

Will the women be ?  Sorry.  What good does it do for the women’s selection committee to choose UGA this year missing perhaps as many as the top 3 players on the team ?  Useless act going nowhere obviously now.

 

The women can not shoot.

 

The men are exciting.

 

In both cases, our old gym does not need a center scoreboard but a new gym – lipstick on a pig.

 

The men and women face the facts that they do NOT have enough talent – talent that leaves this state to go play in nice new big gyms fun places to play that host big events.

Lady Bulldogs down by 9 storm back and win without Shacobia Barbee and Mackenzie Engram to beat Arkansas who tried to wear us down only to bring-in subs who all missed every shot.

The Lady Bulldogs answered the challenge to their depleted ranks and shook off Arkansas at the Stegesaurus on SEC Network Whip Around coverage.

 

Majorie Butler went 1 of 4 all early when losing by 9 and we could field only 8 but that was enough to handle Arkansas 11-17 while Georgia improves to 21-7 and solidifies its bid to The NCAA Big Dance.  I still say we won’t do anything when we do although we are still fighting for a 2-game bye in The SEC Tournament.

 

Next up nationally televised vols’ game – unranked vols.  First time since 1985 unranked vols.

 

( https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e3/Pat-Summitt-Walter-Reed-Center-06-24-08-2.jpg )

 

Holly Warlick was a poor choice and I said so at the time.

 

We’re not ranked either and it is going to take a big win to get us ranked at # 29 today for us.

 

The SEC will look like a shell of itself with the vols and Lady Bulldogs game on national TV.  vols just stand around on offense and wait for someone to throw them the ball so they can jack it up.

 

Tonight The Lady Bulldogs got great effort from Hempe Griffin Robinson Roberts and Clark.  It’s really all we have.

 

WITHOUT Shacobia Barbee :

Caliya Robinson who averages only 18 minutes a game this season had instead 5 more minutes playing time 23 minutes.

 

Haley Clark who averages only 9 minutes a game this season had instead 13 more minutes playing time 22 minutes.

 

Pachis Roberts who averages only 21 minutes a game this season had instead 15 more minutes playing time 36 minutes.

 

Merritt Hempe who averages only 24 minutes a game this season had instead 1 more minute playing time 25 minutes.

 

Tiaria Griffin who averages only 34 minutes a game this season had instead 4 more minutes playing time 38 minutes.

 

Shanea Armbrister who averages only 7 minutes a game this season had instead 2 more minutes playing time 9 minutes.

 

So who took-up the 34 minutes a game this season Shacobia Barbee was getting ?  These 6 sucked-it up and answered the bell.

 

And, they won without Shacobia Barbee.  We’ll see if Joni Taylor does the same Sunday against the vols in the national televised game to end the regular season and if they can get the job done in The SEC Tournament and NCAA Tournament berth Shacobia Barbee was the mainstay in earning for them.

 

Whether or not they can win for Shacobia Barbee.  We do not beat the vols all that often although better than most at this, and with Shacobia Barbee I really liked our chances.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The SEC Tournament begins March 2 in Gainesville.  We don’t have the game at the Stegosaurus ever because our gym sucks.

 

All these schools have better gym than us.

 

It’s a shame the way we refuse to build our teams a new gym.

 

Congratulations to the 5 Georgia players who beat Arkansas tonight.

 

It was fun watching you on the whip around coverage I like although your run there was not shown.

 

Andy Landers predicted the run before it happened as he did the Kentucky win when they were losing too.

 

I am proud of the 5 who won tonight.  They could use some help.

 

We will not get them that help with the gym not one anyone really wants to play in.

 

2-25-2016

 

Georgia Lady Bulldog Shacobia Barbee underwent successful surgery on Tuesday 23 February 2016 to repair a fracture of her left distal fibula suffered during this past Sunday’s win over Florida. THIS ENDS THE SEASON FOR HER TEAM as they tanked without her last year. She broke her right leg last year vs vols which knocked her out the rest of the season last season and with it the hopes of the team culminating in Andy Landers retiring early. And, the team lost every game without her and no doubt will again this season. I hold no hope for us.

Thank you Shacobia Barbee !

 

Joni Taylor will have to pull a rabbit out of her hat to win another game.

 

If Marjorie Butler sees this as meaning she needs to take more shots, we will be BLOWN-OUT every game the entire rest of the season.

 

I do not have to tell what this means for The Lady Bulldogs this season either.

“Shacobia Barbee, who broke the same bone in her right leg last season, is averaging 12.7 points and leads the team with 9.1 rebounds per game. She is second on the team with 3.8 assists per game.”

 

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/georgia-senior-barbee-surgery-season-ending-injury-231817884–ncaaw.html

 

She is a lot more than that.  She is the heart and soul of the team, as seen by the swoon without her last season.

 

The Lady Bulldogs had made it up to # 29 in the latest AP Poll at 20-7.  There are players who have to step up if this season now does not tank as last season.  You do not need me to tell you who you are do you Caliya Robinson , Pachis Roberts , Halle Washington , Amber Skidgel , Shanea Armbrister , and Haley Clark specifically.

 

 

 

Georgia Lady Bulldog Shacobia Barbee ends her career at Georgia with now both her right leg last season and now her left leg this season – both broken legs.  This tears at the fabric of all our fans to hear this devastating news to our team leader yet again another season – her junior and now senior seasons.

 

I lettered in basketball.  I scoff at anyone who says the game played in shorts is a non-contact game.

 

She will be a top WNBA draft pick.  One of the top handful of players in All of this great nation.  She will play in the WNBA as long as he wants.  She is the best player we have had at Georgia and that is saying something.

 

She puts up triple doubles.  If she needs to shoot, she makes it.  She steals.  She shoots free throws.  She does not foul.  She rebounds.  She dishes off. She plays defense.  She is the person who has the assists and does not turn the ball over.  She is what she is.  She is simply the finest player I have seen.  She makes her 3-point shots.  She plays the most minutes on the entire team.

 

We can hope that the NCAA does not hold this against the team, but based on last season’s performance stepping-up for her, they would be remiss to add us to the NCAA Tournament based upon what we did with her, without her now.  I hate to report this.

 

But, I do not hold out much hope that Caliya Robinson , Pachis Roberts , Halle Washington , Amber Skidgel , Shanea Armbrister , and Haley Clark specifically will do their job in her stead.  In the fact the whole team went into a swoon last season without her.

 

Her teammates certainly let her down last season.

 

Didn’t they ?

 

Shacobia Barbee is the only player that really matters to the team in all 27 of our games this season.  There were 2 other gals who played in all 27 games with you, but they both are bit role players in comparison.

 

 

 

916 minutes are tops on the team this season.

33.9 minutes per game are tops of the team this season.

Started all 27 games top on the team this season.

Only 2 on the team shot better from the field this season than she and neither of them made as many baskets as she.

Only 1 on the team made more 3-point shots as she.

She also led the team in made free throws.

She had twice as many rebounds as everyone else on the season.

She nearly averaged a double-double.

Triple double.

The least player on the team in personal fouls, she brought her lunch bucket to work and did her job without fouling.

Only 1 on the team had 6 more total assists than she all season.

And, that 1 had 5 more turnovers than she.

Only 2 on the team had more blocked shots.

Also the team leader in steals.

 

If the AP wants to write that about her, they should look at the stats and what she really meant to us.

That is then 2 of our Starters.

 

Just damn.

 

 

These are not only 2 of our 5 Starters but these are 2 of the most dynamic women’s basketball players and both sure to be WNBA players.

Lady Bulldogs (20-7) beat Top 25 Florida 74-63 for 5th win of season vs ranked teams as Shacobia Barbee has reinjured her other ankle this season after her other leg caused her to miss the end of last season as finally we get almost ranked ourselves sitting just outside the Top 25 coming-in. RPI # 23 pre-game we will move-up to about # 19 PRI and have now beat 7 top RPI teams this season already all 7 who are IN THE BIG DANCE ALREADY ! This is our 30th 20-Win Season. Mackenzie Engram will be missing her 14th game in a row Thursday night for us as well while she was a Starter January 3 in her last game.

Shacobia Barbee and her senior-laden teammates beat Florida at the Stegesaurus this afternoon.

 

The SEC is the toughest conference in this sport as well, and we’re a winning record in The SEC and already were # 23 in the RPI, now to move up to about # 19 today in the RPI.

 

NCAA Tournament Queens, The Lady Bulldogs are making a strong run this season with a very tough strength of schedule.  Many women’s teams this season have run-up their record on weak sisters of the poor such as Texas Maryland Florida State Florida and Duquesne but this day we exposed a team who just hasn’t played the great opponents we have all season long.

 

And, beat them.

 

# 23 in the RPI pre-game, The Lady Bulldogs’ Basketball team this year has now beat :

 

# 11 RPI BYU

# 20 Florida

# 20 RPI Florida again today

# 32 Mississippi State

# 33 Missouri

# 38 RPI Seton Hall

# 52 RPI Auburn

 

There are 2 games remaining in the regular season Thursday and then next Sunday’s national televised game against the vols then The SEC Tournament.

 

We have now won 6 of our last 7 games with the only loss here at the end of the season when you have to be hot to get ranked and to get a high seed to 25-1 South Carolina who is # 2 in the RPI.

 

The Lady Bulldogs will be on the SEC Network whip-around Thursday night at 7 p.m. and I really like the whip-around where you really get to see all the Top SEC Teams all night long and really miss very little of any of the top games.  It’s an amazing concept I love from the SEC Network.  You really get to see what a great conference The SEC is.  We all want to see our team play.  We all get to with Whip Around SEC Network.  I love it.  We will be playing Arkansas who is the last team we play who can not play.  Although for the 1st time in more than 3 decades this has all caught-up with the vols.  I questioned their choice as coach, as I did ours.  These 2 programs both should have hired a proven head coach the best in the nation.  vols face not even being a ranked team.  That last happened in 1985.

 

We will see if we can get by lowly Arkansas Thursday and face a vols team who just stands around on offense and waits for someone to pass them the ball.  Seen better high school basketball.

 

If we had all our horses I’d love our chances this season.  Without Mackenzie Engram and without Shacobia Barbee, we shall not beat any real team – unless some on the bench do this season that which they made no effort to last season.

 

Tiaria Griffin had 28 points capping her career as he goes high in the WNBA Draft up-coming.  Shacobia Barbee 20 points and her ankle is unknown just that she could not get back on the court and she might actually be higher drafted.  Pachis Roberts had 13 points and she comes back next season.  While Marjorie Butler who will be our Lady Bulldogs’ 4th Academic All-America had a usual game shooting at 0-8 from the field but did ice the game with her 2-2 of free throws.  In order to be Academic All-America the player in question MUST be a Starter.  It’s been an unusual career watching her play or should I say jack it up for a gal who has no hope of hitting the broad side of the barn.  Bricks ?  That would be a compliment to Marjorie Butler to say that she throws-up bricks.  Bricks take exception to that slight.

Of the 8 who play 15 minutes of the 40-minute games (4 quarters this season began)  Marjorie Butler is # 8 the worst dead-last shooter on the team at just .321.  Most of her shots are lay-ups.  Or her shooting percentage would be worse.  Marjorie Butler is also 8th at shooting 3-point shots making only 11 of 51 jacked-up.  They are lucky they clip the backboard.

 

1st year coach Joni Taylor who played at Alabama is ALLOWED to not Start and play Marjorie Butler some and he still be named our 4th Academic All-America.

Fran Tarkenton was the 1st Georgia Bulldog in any sport to be named Academic All America.

 

Kirby is another Academic All-America for Georgia.

 

Congratulations to The Lady Bulldogs on a fine season this season so far with the biggest games up-coming.

 

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Basketball Program All-Time:

 

I predicted us this season at no worse than 21-9 after The SEC Tournament and no worse than 9-8 SEC as you can see in the previous posts here on this blog.  We’re 20-7 and 8-6 SEC now.

 

Florida was # 22 in the AP Poll and I predicted we were 1 more big win away from being ranked in the Top 25 ourselves.  We’ll see how that goes as obviously playing the vols next Sunday on National TV is a gargantuan task.

 

The SEC is ranked The # 1 Women’s Basketball Conference obviously this year.

Mackenzie Engram still was unable to go today again and has now missed every game starting January 7.  Thursday’s night televised game with be her 14th game in a row she has missed.  The last game Mackenzie Engram played in she Started against # 20 Missouri January 3.

 

Our Ladies have been in 31 of all of the 34 previous NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship Tournaments and this will be 32 of the All-Time 35 since it started for Women in 1982 – this is # 2 All-Time in the Nation ! We also have been ranked 522 times in the AP Poll which is also # 2 All-Time although none this year so getting ranked this season is VERY IMPORTANT to our senior class which includes 4 of our 5 starters and 1 bench player Terry Godwin’s sister.  We are a Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time.  We have had 20 WNBA Draft Picks since 1999 which is # 4 in the nation and have 3 more who will be after this season.  65 in a row – every 4-year letterman ever here – have graduated for 36 consecutive seasons and this will be 37.  We will have another Academic All-America being named this season as well to bring the total to 4 of our Lovely Lady Bulldogs’ Basketball Players who have been named Academic All-America !  We have 86 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Tournament Wins All-Time so we are EXPECTED to add to that this season.  Our ladies are embraced nationally as a Consensus Top 5 program on and off the court in the classrooms and the community and our fans are the # 1 fans of this sport we do so well in.  We continue to develop this season again top talent obviously and the very top student-athletes.  We have 4 Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.  One of only 3 American Athletes who have Won Gold Medals at 4 Different Olympics the Most Decorated Basketball Player in Olympics’ history. 1 of 4 American All-Time Women’s FIBA Federation International Basketball Amateur Hall of Fame.  In 2007 we opened “Georgia Coliseum Training Facility” a $30 million dollar 120,000 square feet nation’s largest basketball practice facility where 3 years in a row now this year the Atlanta Hawks do their pre-season practice – most impressive in the nation.   We average over 24 wins a season All-Time also Top 5 program in the nation.  11 eleven SEC Titles.  This is our 30th 20-Win Season !  Every game is on TV and Every game can be heard LIVE on FM Radio including in Atlanta on 103.7 WXKT-FM even in your car.  I thought you should know.  Our men are a different story.  Both would benefit from a new gym in retaining in-state talent as well as attracting out-of-state talent and we are BEHIND in supporting our teams with this new gym with the over $150 million revenue annually our teams make us.  Our “Georgia Excellence Campaign” has this new gym as their # 1 next goal.

The Lady Bulldogs with RPI # 24 vs. Strength of Schedule # 23 can emerge after SEC Championship Tournament no worse than 21-9 and 9-8 vs. SEC teams with BIG WINS over RPI # 19, 21, 22, & 29 putting us solidly in the NCAA Tournament. In fact, we are 1 MORE Big Win away from being ranked in AP & Coaches Polls. The SEC has 8 teams solidly in The NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship Tournament with 2 more on the bubble at # 52 & # 61. The SEC is ranked The # 1 Women’s Basketball Conference obviously this year. We only have 5 ladies who shoot the ball well and only 3 ladies who make their free throws. We foul way too much but we do play well on Defense, rebound well and we do not turn the ball over. We are deep although Mackenzie Engram has missed now 7 Consecutive Games. Our Ladies have been in 31 of all the 34 previous NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship Tournaments and this will be 32 of the All-Time 35 since it started for Women in 1982 – this is # 2 All-Time in the Nation ! We also have been ranked 522 times in the AP Poll which is also # 2 All-Time although none this year so getting ranked this season is VERY IMPORTANT to our senior class which includes 4 of our 5 starters and 1 bench player Terry Godwin’s sister. We are a Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time. We have had 20 WNBA Draft Picks since 1999 which is # 4 in the nation and have 3 more who will be after this season. 65 in a row – every 4-year letterman ever here – have graduated for 36 consecutive seasons and this will be 37. We will have another Academic All-America being named this season as well to bring the total to 4 of our Lovely Lady Bulldogs’ Basketball Players who have been named Academic All-America ! We have 86 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Tournament Wins All-Time so we are EXPECTED to add to that this season. Our ladies are embraced nationally as a Consensus Top 5 program on and off the court in the classrooms and the community and our fans are the # 1 fans of this sport we do so well in. We continue to develop this season again top talent obviously and the very top student-athletes. We have 4 Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. One of only 3 American Athletes who have Won Gold Medals at 4 Different Olympics the Most Decorated Basketball Player in Olympics’ history. 1 of 4 American All-Time Women’s FIBA Federation International Basketball Amateur Hall of Fame. In 2007 we opened “Georgia Coliseum Training Facility” a $30 million dollar 120,000 square feet nation’s largest basketball practice facility where 3 years in a row now this year the Atlanta Hawks do their pre-season practice – most impressive in the nation. We average over 24 wins a season All-Time also Top 5 program in the nation. 11 eleven SEC Titles. This will be our 30th 20-Win Season with 3 more victories. Every game is on TV and Every game can be heard LIVE on FM Radio including in Atlanta on 103.7 WXKT-FM even in your car. I thought you should know. Our men are a different story. Both would benefit from a new gym in retaining in-state talent as well as attracting out-of-state talent and we are BEHIND in supporting our teams with this new gym with the over $150 million revenue annually our teams make us. Our “Georgia Excellence Campaign” has this new gym as their # 1 next goal.

If we built a big enough new gym, we could force the Atlanta Hawks to play 1 NBA game a year at our new gym in return for what we’ve done for them 3 years in a row now.  In fact, there could be MORE NBA and WNBA games here if we do this correctly, as well as hosting NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Basketball Championship Tournament games, Final 4, and SEC Championships as well and for others of our 23 sports – all of whom would benefit from a new gym with this annual in excess now of $ 150 million dollars revenue our sports teams at UGA now generate for us as an annuity. It is the # 2 ROI we could put this annuity toward – primarily basketball – ranking only behind the ROI for football as a destination for this in excess now of $ 150 million dollar annual annuity.

 

There is more meat in this 1 blog post than in all the other blog posts combined today by all Georgia blogs and newspaper stories.  This also is the # 1 blog post all-time about The Lady Bulldogs today.  By these standards this post is short only 794 words, fully documented and 100 percent accurate as you have become accustomed to here – as has been PROVEN – including my predictions which have been uncannily correct as well – some to your personal chagrin !  So I offer-up this Super Sunday before the game.

2-7-2016

Georgia Coliseum designed as Cow Palace – not lined-up for basketball renamed 1996 Stegeman 53 years later now the electricity FAILED tonight as The Lady Bulldogs 14-6 smashed Auburn 13-7 by 63-30 despite multiple electricity issues.

Stegesaurus electricity failed tonight halting the Nationally televised contest for over 15 minutes.  When the electricians could get the electricity back working again to the lighting system, they still had electricity issues for the broadcast crew including electric microphones which would not work.  It was as if there was a surge through the electrical systems because they shorted-out but there was no external influence on it since it was a clear day and not cold.  It is clear what caused it.  Faulty dangerous wiring.

 

It is not very good publicity that in really rather warm weather tonight – it’s going to be 68 degrees Monday and 71 degrees Tuesday – multiple electrical failures in the electrical systems at Stegeman under no strain at the time stopped the telecast.

 

And, here we are with over $ 150 million dollars in football revenue each year.  And, Ole Miss used their SEC Revenue Sharing annuity and built a small new gym for $ 100 million.  But we might all have to evacuate our 53-year old antiquated old gym in an electrical fire.

 

We come across as poor stewards of the monies The SEC shares annually.

 

If someone is injured as a result at Stegeman, it will be negligence after last night because The University of Georgia was certainly put on notice along with our fans and teams practicing and playing there, that there is something really rotten in the electrical systems that the microphones for the broadcast crew and the lighting system both failed together and only the lighting system came back online. Then, the microphones back long after that.

 

Nationally audiences were treated to over 15 minutes of other games.

 

Then, Stegeman came back online.

 

It’s 53 years old Coach Andy Landers said as to cause of the surprise halting of the national telecast with him the analyst in the studios where the electricity was fine.

The seating is not symmetrical for a basketball court.  This is because originally there was a deep stage at the end of the court where it was designed to be a Cow Palace.

 

It was called Georgia Coliseum at the time – that 53 years ago.

 

Auburn now is 13-8 and The Lady Bulldogs improve to 15-6 in the best defense The Lady Bulldogs have played against an SEC team EVER holding Auburn to the lowest total by an SEC team all-time for us.

 

Auburn was 0 for 10 from the 3-point line.

 

The game was halted at 42-20.

 

It was a lengthy delay.  No one associated with the facility offered any update on their stop-gap measures to get the game back underway.

 

Only Andy Landers offered-up the reason.

 

Well it’s over 53 years old.

 

He would know.

 

The seating is horrible :

It was designed for agricultural events :

 

http://columns.uga.edu/news/article/stegeman-coliseum-marks-50th-anniversary-season/

 

And, with the help of the disconcerting multiple electrical failures on national TV, Auburn was held to our SEC all-time low 30 points.

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/stats/2015-2016/uga21.html

 

Is the sorry facility even safe any longer and what will fire inspectors say about the multiple electrical failures at Stegeman Coliseum January 28 2016 ?

Shacobia Barbee wills The Lady Bulldogs to HUGE win over # 10 Mississippi State to make us 28-15 vs Miss State All-Time. # 39 RPI and moving up for The Lady Bulldogs !

Shacobia Barbee was everywhere tonight.  She did it all scoring her 7th Double-Double of the season and is # 31 All-Time for The Lady Bulldogs in scoring with 1100 points in her career despite breaking her leg last year vs the vols – at which point we lost every game after her injury.

 

This game she just insisted that we win.  Her defense was stifling and her all-around game is 2nd to none always.  She made only 2 turnovers and scored 17 points – twice as many as any of the other gals tonight.

 

It was a display of physical dominance by Shacobia Barbee who finished with 5 offensive rebounds and 6 defensive rebounds too.

 

How exciting for The Lady Bulldogs, who got after it tonight on ESPN Game Watcher on the Internet from http://www.georgiadogs.com

 

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/gametracker/launch/gt_wbaskbl.html?event=1451737&school=geo&sport=wbaskbl&camefrom=&startschool=&

 

 

14-5 on the season # 39 RPI The Lady Bulldogs – looking great for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament this season !

 

This will be a big jump in the RPI beating # 10 Mississippi State who was in the Top 25 of the RPI too, but now we forced them out of the Top 25 in the RPI for the season.

Lady Bulldogs take on Alabama on SEC Network 5 pm Eastern Time tonight 1-17-2016 Comcast Channel 792 . We won our last road game at Florida Thursday 14th but since Marjorie Butler has been made starter that is the only win on the road for us against a ranked team. We’re 13-4 Alabama 12-5. Our women # 33 RPI our men # 68 RPI. Elle Macpherson.

2013 we beat Kentucky a ranked team on the road but Marjorie Butler did not play at all.  In fact, she did not start at all in 2013, only a bit role as a poor shooter.

 

2014 Marjorie Butler started 5 of 32 games and 7 games did not play at all because she can not shoot yet jacks it up.

 

Last year 2015 Marjorie Butler became the Starter at Point Guard for Andy Landers and he quit coaching all together because of the bad example she sets bringing the ball up court for us and jacking it up.  And missing.  She is an awful shooter.

 

Joni Taylor took over the team this year for Andy Landers who could not take another year of her shooting and Joni Taylor  has made no changes to the line-up because she has zero experience and still today does not see what a pariah Marjorie Butler is to her own job of getting the team to take good shots – shots they have some prayer of making.

 

If you look at her shooting, Marjorie Butler in her career here has shot the worst of any player in the history of the game.  She is 19 % from the 3-piont line for her entire career now a senior and jacks them up from there EVERY game her entire career.  Clank.

 

I hate to admit that she has taken the joy out of watching them last season and this for the 1st time in my life yet I am so addicted. So addicted.

 

The team can not win with her.  We do have the # 33 RPI because the rest of the team is really really good this their senior seasons for the entire team.  We lose everybody after this season.  Everyone.

 

The bad news is we lose all our players after this season.

 

The good news is that we lose Marjorie Butler who is on to medical school.

 

I presume we are Starting her because you must be the Starter to be Academic All-America.

 

There are 131 UGA Academic All-America in all 19 sports which is # 11 All-Time all schools winning Academic All-America.  Coach Kirby Smart is 1 of the 131 in 1998.

 

I do not see the Big XII Big 12 surviving in ANY sport although we have propped them up for years to support this inequity of Texas getting so much revenue.  I remain amused that Oklahoma has remained this long.  Adding Podunk teams to their only 10 would be bad for the Big XII.  When we study these minute details of EVERY sport what we find is that The SEC is just so damn strong !  Imagine a 9-2 Bowl Record this year again in football ?  Still it pisses me off that Ole Miss gets a new $ 100 million dollar gym with their SEC revenue-sharing monies and we don’t when their old gym was the same age as our gym still is.  We must do something for our men and women in basketball to get our players in-state to want to play here.  Now that we have our over $ 30 million dollar 20-yards longer Erk Russell Indoor Practice Facility than Georgie tek yellowjackets have, we must turn our attention quickly to catching-up with the other SEC schools in our gym.  Something showcase with all this money we get from The SEC that for the 1st time in over 50 years’ time now will make us competitive again with this antiquated old gym.  If it were bigger then better recruits would flock here and fill it !

 

Some other of the 131 Academic All-America at UGA All-Time include Bill Stanfill, Kevin McClee, Jeff Pyburn, Terry Hoage, Chad Kessler, Alec Kessler, Matt Stinchcomb, Jon Stinchcomb, Coco Miller, Kelly Miller, Courtney Kupets, Gordan Beckham, Ty Frix, Aaron Murray, Drew Butler, and Fran Tarkenton was our 1st Bulldog Academic All-America in 1960.  1960 is when we decided we needed a new gym.  I remember it well.

 

131 in 56 years is more than 2 a year for us which is GREAT !

 

But also VERY RARE.  To be a Dean’s List Honor Roll Scholar and STARTER on your team is as you can see .000 percent.  Have to take it out 4 decimal places to see how infrequent it is that a Starting Athlete would also be a top scholar !

 

Utterly amazing feat.

 

I will just be glad when the career 29 % from the field shooter 19 % career from the 3-point line is gone.

http://web1.ncaa.org/stats/StatsSrv/careersearch

 

You can use this URL Link to look-up ANY player ANY sport and goes back at least to 1964 for the major sports and goes back to 1932 for football and 1947 for men’s basketball.  Very cool useful URL Link I use all the time when I want to know about a student-athlete’s entire career up-to-date to the moment, not just looking at a single year.  Thank you NCAA for adding this for us.

 

If she would just quit shooting !

 

 

Unfortunately this does NOT bode well for the career of Joni Taylor here because next season is going to be STARK.

 

And not because she loses Marjorie Butler.

 

We might actually beat Alabama on the road tonight on National TV, but only if Marjorie Butler never takes a 3-point shot ever again in her lifetime and only if she limits her shots from the field to 4 one of which she MIGHT make.  Might not based on her career here.  Otherwise we are doomed even against a lesser foe we own like Alabama.

 

It is sad when one who is so smart as Marjorie Butler can be so damned selfish and set such a hideous example to all her teammates taking the ball down the court and jacking it up.

 

So when 1 of the others gets into the game, they have to do the same to get any shots.

 

Sad.

 

And, very aggravating.

 

Our football team got to this point too where if the opponent was ranked and we played them away from Sanford for these last 8 years we lost 15 of 24 games going into this 2016 season, which is not even Top 25 in the nation away from Home for # 11 All-Time Football Wins’ Georgia.  It is a measure. How well you do against ranked teams away from Home.

The Lady Bulldogs used to be great.  We’re the # 5 women’s basketball program of All-Time !

 

Our men have an RPI of 68.  So our women # 33 RPI are far more likely to make the NCAA Tournament than our men.

 

Our men because they can shoot but too many turnovers not enough rebounds and no defense.

Our women because despite being unable to shoot do play defense and rebound and do not turn the ball over.

 

There is a lesson there somewhere.

 

Last night for example our men lost in basketball at the Stegesaurus because we had 150 % more turnovers than Texas A & M committed, because we were outrebounded again and because we played absolutely no defense allowing Texas A & M all kinds of open shots making no effort to play defense again.  Texas A&M plays defense, rebounds and does NOT turn the ball over.  Result only 45-points we score in a 34-point then blow-out of Biblical Proportions as I have maintained about this team, also suffering greatly after this season with us also losing all our players as we do in women’s basketball after this season.

The Dawgbone for the last 8 years of Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor here, refused to allow any updates on its site if he LOST AGAIN fearing that someone might actually 1-line the poor efforts of our “coach” cough cough.  They make no such effort when not Apologizing for HIS sorry ass – please note.  The Dawgbone waited 24 hours after every loss before updating a DAY LATE then anyone’s and everyone’s efforts to discuss his bullshit coaching these last 8 years before he was finally FIRED as I predicted all along had to happen.

 

http://thedawgbone.com/

 

Men’s Basketball – Fair Game !

 

That certainly is one-sided, isn’t it ?

 

Mr. Blue’s The Dawgbone – he gives you some URL Links mostly to pay-per-view sites notably during 8 years of unsatisfactory results refused to provide that news until one full day out-of-date !  Freaking Apologist to THIS VERY DAY !

 

Isn’t he ?

 

And, you look at Coach Mark Fox on the sidelines and he is just peeved at the players.  He stands there shaking his head, bemused at the bullshit efforts by his troops – unlike his predecessor’s counterpart in football ever was.

 

But it is ok for us to say that about Coach Mark Fox but not ok to say that about Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor until no one bothered to look that deeply into the archived URL Links Mr. Blue decides when and if he will show you the URL Link to the real news on our football team.  He still does choose the URL Links the damn Apologist – and biased son of a bitch.

 

He wants to control what we think.

 

How did that work out for you Mr. Blue ?

 

Asshole !

 

I will tell you how that worked out tens of thousands flocked HERE instead and read what I had to say.

 

Because I predicted it ALL ALONG and why daily.

 

Shit lick.

 

 

 

I will be watching us tonight at 5 pm to 7 pm Comcast 792 HD.  Will you ?

 

There is a lesson there somewhere too.

 

Joni Taylor played at Alabama from 1997 to 2001 but only has the 1 SEC win all season against # 20 Florida Thursday.  When they look back at Georgia under Andy Landers who up and quit entering this season facing these prospects again this season of our horrible shooting and a ball hog jacking it up bringing the ball up the court setting such a horrid example and she so smart what is always found is that Georgia is # 5 in the nation all-time with The Lady Bulldogs.  It is quite a precedent !

 

With all the resources we have except a new gym we could’ve been even more.  Instead we are in a no-win scenario for both Joni Taylor and Coach Mark Fox who is great.  But I would not have taken this gig without assurance The University of Georgia would build me a new gym before they fired me or pay me a penalty of one million lump sum cash. I call it my one percent penalty tax because the new gym is going to cost one hundred million dollars – certainly not chump change – but if Ole Miss can pony-up a hundred million for a new gym to replace their gym also which opened in 1964 as ours did then by God we HAVE TO !

 

1 year now to the day from now, our Erk Russell Indoor Practice Facility opens at which time I sincerely hope the entire University pushes hard for the new gym our men and women have such richly deserved – a long time coming !

 

We have been rubbing salt in the wounds of our richly deserving men and women basketball fans with all the traffic getting into and out of the Stegesaurus due to the construction of the Erk Russell Indoor Practice Facility closing down all the streets to traffic.

 

This also is the reason why the new gym can not be on the site of the Stegesaurus.

 

We can use the Stegesaurus for other events besides basketball, which the Stegesaurus never was built for specifically anyway.  And, we can keep wasting money on it until the cows go home.  If you have never been on a dairy farm, the cows go home when they decide amongst themselves.

 

We have momentum in football because we dared to be great yet all we have in basketball is that we have a great Coach for the men.  Unfortunately he would be so much even better somewhere else and he would be so much far greater here if he had a new gym as well.

 

If we gave a shit about trying to win around here.

 

Maybe Fran Tarkenton would give us some money for a new gym too since we are content to sit on all this cash The SEC gives us every year in the over half a billion annual SEC revenue-sharing which is going WAY UP beyond that now with the SEC Network kicking-in finally now.  Fran Tarkenton remembers when the new gym was built as do I.  And, we can not buy a new gym but Ole Miss can.

Dare to be great !  Elle Macpherson shown in the 2 pics was born in Sydney where I lived for 3 years the day we opened the Stegesaurus !

 

Billy Joel wrote 3 songs about his dating Elle Macpherson but no one writes shit about the Stegesaurus in 52 years !

 

 

The Stegesaurus has not been an up-town girl in 52 years – half a century.

 

This is Christie Brinkley in the video of the song, both in Billy Joel’s entourage.

 

We need an uptown girl for our gym.

 

1-17-2016

Men too many turnovers, not enough rebounds, no defense. Lady Bulldogs can NOT shoot !

Nothing new about either one.

 

Marjorie Butler Watch : 1 of 6  That is 16 % shooting Marjorie Butler .

 

Again !

 

Quit jacking the ball up.

 

I would bench your ass.

 

I do not care that we do not have a point guard.

 

Benched gal.

 

Caliya Robinson can shoot !

 

Pass the ball to her.  I told you she is a budding superstar !

 

Instead, 1 of 6 shooter shoots ?

 

Caliya Robinson 3 of 5.  60 %.

 

Duh.

 

This is bad coaching.  This has gone on the entire career of our point guard, who was recruited here by Joni Taylor our coach.

 

Yet, Joni Taylor puts her right back out there.

 

And she JACKS it UP !

 

Doink !

 

She throws up bricks.

 

Worst shooter on the team takes 6 shots and the budding superstar takes fewer shots yet makes 3 times as many baskets.

 

?

 

Selfish.

 

Stupid.

 

This is where we Lost the game again tonight, again.  It sets a horrible example for the team when the man with the ball, dribbles the ball up-court and selfishly takes 6 shots while our budding superstar gets fewer shots when she is 1 of 6 EVERY FRIQIN’ game.

 

Same EVERY game.

 

WTF ?

 

I am the ONL Y person who can see this ?

 

Coach Andy Landers QUIT this team because of this kind of shooting for 4 years’ time now by Marjorie Butler.

 

No different last year, or year before or year before that, or this year.

 

Same.

 

Caliya Robinson plays 10 minutes and Marjorie Butler plays 40.

 

Not on my team.

 

I take her aside and have a talking to.

 

I then say it again to her in front of her teammates next.

 

Then, I bench her.

 

And, she sits.

 

Do NOT shoot the ball Marjorie Butler.

 

Whip-Around coverage by SEC Network tonight, and I saw really all of it.  It was good.  I like that !

 

29 % for the season this season, Marjorie Butler.

 

WTF are you doing gal ?

 

Forty (40) Three-point shots on the season.

 

Guess how many Marjorie Butler, who can NOT shoot, made of the 40 ?

 

7.

 

17 % from beyond the arc.

 

Good Lord gal, how damn selfish !

 

Get lost Marjorie Butler.

 

Pack your bags.

 

Go to medical school.

 

Goodbye.

 

We will suffer through it without a point guard.

 

Bye-bye now.

 

Don’t let the screen door slam on your sorry ass on the way out !

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/stats/2015-2016/teamcume.html

 

You pass the ball off those 6 shots to Caliya Robinson, we WIN !

 

Dumbass.

 

Selfish !

 

So SELFISH !

 

Yes, Griffin was fouled on the arm on the baseline final shot.  She was all over her arm.  Defender reached out with her left arm and hacked her in the act from 3-point line down by 2 with 3 seconds remaining.  3 free throws.  We win that game !  Horrible officiating !

 

Doesn’t ALTER the fact that the game should have been won at HOME before that.

 

MEN :

 

We have 29 more turnovers than our opponents.  And, it gets WORSE every game !

 

Look guys this is unacceptable.

 

If we pass you the ball and you are SO OUT OF CONTROL that you lose the ball to the opponents instead of this great shooting team around you making a basket, you are giving them 2 points and taking 2 points away from us.

 

Pretty simple game guys.

 

You throw the ball through the hoop, not throw the ball to the opponents, and you have 2 courts to PLAY.  Half the time you are playing defense trying to get THEM to turn the ball over to you, or miss.  DEFENSE.  We have no Defense.

 

Jeez Louise !

 

Men won last night against Missouri.  Missouri.  That hardly counts.

 

You LOST to Florida.

 

You had TOO MANY TURNOVERS

 

NOT ENOUGH REBOUNDS

 

NO DEFENSE.

 

This is not working guys.  You need to look at little Frazier, J.J. as he gets 5 boards a game.  5 !

 

I would be ashamed of myself, if I played defense that poorly and could not block out underneath any better than that.

 

Disgraceful guys !

 

Frazier, J.J. gets 5 rebounds EVERY GAME and you sit there resting on defense, and let him get more rebounds than you.

 

Shameful.

 

Shame on YOU !

 

One guy only on the whole entire team gets more rebounds than what is he 5″ 9″ Frazier, J.J.  It has nothing to do with height it is ALL defense and staying between your man and the basket.  And, blocking out.

 

Move your feet.

 

Rest on the bench.

 

NOT on defense !

 

The Ladies can not shoot to save their souls and the Men turn the damn ball over play no defense and do not position themselves for rebounds.  I presume you neither are pleased ?

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/m-baskbl/stats/2015-2016/teamcume.html

 

It is going to be a long season if y’all keep this up.

 

You’re not winning any fans over like this.  And, we won’t get our new gym playing like this Men or Ladies.

 

1-8-2016

Jake Eason’s Dad says Sam Pittman ! Drudgery until after next Monday start anew ? Good Lord ! Just quit then. You are so FOS. Give it up! And, just when I am so pumped ! Now, Jeff Sagarin Poll moves Bryan McClendson’s team up to # 22. And, so we bid adieu to 21 and maybe 22 all whom Started for us. The last of the Dream Team. # 14 Malkom Parrish leaps 42″ and Lorenzo Carter then jumps 42″ and they both then bat the ball down with BOTH HANDS EMPHATICALLY after Sterling Bailey was all over Trace McSorley who had to heave the Hail Mary through his arms as Blue Bloods Penn State Nittany Lions and Georgia Bulldogs battle it out to the buzzer 24-17 UGA ! Bryan McClendon gets Georgia ranked in AP and Coaches’ Final Polls ! How exciting ! 29-19-3 UGA Bowl Record which is Top 5 All-Time in Bowl Games. We beat Penn State ! 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 have LOSING BOWL RECORDS again. 29 teams 10-Win Season. 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 !

 

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.

 

That we did better WITHOUT him.

 

Leonard Floyd picked up their little back-up QB  Trace McSorley  # 9.

 

They ran no replay of that !

 

Trace McSorley had a better day than Greyson Lambert !

 

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 !

 

16 !

 

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.

 

4th quarter.

 

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.

 

We failed.

 

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.

Georgia Bulldogs 787-413-54 All-Time # 11 in Wins !

 

http://cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/misc/div_ia_wins.php

 

Blue Bloods ?

 

Bad blood.

 

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 adieu to 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 ?

 

Why ?

 

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.

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/malkom_parrish_908831.html

 

Player of the Game, Terry Godwin whose sister played the last game for The Lady Bulldogs and whom The Bulldog Nation gave much praise to in recruiting, is our 2nd leading receiver for the Year !

 

And, our # 1 QB.

 

Terry Godwin !

 

100 Terry Godwin QB Rating for 2015-2016 season 100 !

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.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015%E2%80%9316_NCAA_football_bowl_games

They have no hope against Alabama.

 

The SEC still has that game left.  The ACC with a win can NOT have a winning bowl record this season again.

 

The Mighty SEC also has the MOST BOWL GAMES 2015-2016 with 11.  No other conference has as many !

 

Our 8 Wins already is the Winning Number, 8-2.

 

Pac-12 is better than The SEC at 6-4 ?  What kind of bullshit is that that 6-4 pedestrian Pac-12 is better than 8-2 or maybe 9-2 SEC ?

 

Or, even close.

 

You make the comparison.  I already have.  Your teams already have.

 

Tell us again how The SEC is OVER-RATED !

 

Overrated ?

 

Who’s overrated ?

 

“Power 5” Conferences of The Mighty SEC and then the also rans.  The nobodies.  The Mighty SEC and then all the rest of the LOSERS !

 

This means that The Mighty SEC Wins the Bowl Challenge no matter the result of that remaining 1 Bowl Game.  The 41st Bowl Game.

 

Pac-12 ends their season with a pedestrian 6-4 mark in the bowl games.  Their season over.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015%E2%80%9316_NCAA_football_bowl_games

 

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 !

Dale Earnhardt, Junior says he is a South Carolina Gamecock fan and has won the Daytona Firecracker 500 twice which used to be raced on July 4th,  in his 26 NASCAR Wins in 18 seasons.

 

He is worth a third of a billion dollars !

 

Junior.

 

He has Washington Redskins NFL updates radioed to his car during the races, an avid fan of the game.

 

He has also won The Talladega 500, as these are the 2 Superspeedways in NASCAR.

 

I also have driven Talladega.

 

 

 

His sponsor now is TaxSlayer.com a company in Evans, Georgia (suburb of Augusta) that wrote and provides an online software program where you enter your information online to the IRS, rather than a program on your PC.

He drove his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet on the field and was interviewed with a scraggly beard.

 

 

 

We’re 40 wins for our seniors, not nearly our best.  1 of 13 teams to accomplish this.  Not that the previous coach accomplished this because he did NOT.  This is NOT his win.  He was NOT here, fired.

 

http://www.cfbtrivia.com/cfbt_records.php?fry=2012&thy=2015&jrc=on&cres=1&scrview=1

 

29 teams have 10-win seasons this season :  29

 

29

 

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 :

 

Not ANY year is this a goal

Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor was 73-32 his last entire 8 years here for the # 17 won/lost record for # 11 All-Time Wins’ UGA :

 

http://www.cfbtrivia.com/cfbt_records.php?fry=2008&thy=2015&jrc=on&cres=1&scrview=1

 

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 !

 

http://www.masseyratings.com/rate.php?s=cf2015&sub=11604

 

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 !

 

On defense.

 

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 !

 

Bad coaching.

 

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 !

 

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/ncaaf/sagarin/

 

USA Today

 

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 !

 

Yeah !

 

Way to go guys !

 

Nice job.

 

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 Faton Bauta 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.

The players.

The coaches.

Every God Damn Freaking media.

It drove us all wild.

ALL

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 ?

 

No.

 

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 !

 

And, I.

 

I.

 

Me.

 

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.

 

Bluto – get the picture – state senator and Mr. Blue http://www.TheDawgbone.com are down unmotivated and lackluster ?

 

Give it up !

 

You never were a damn fan of this program anyway !  Just fans of a guy I had a vendetta against for 8 years.

 

The cutest little girl on the sidelines yelled right on cue to the camera crew that :

“We’re # 1 !”

Florida and Texas A&M lose while SEC remains atop Bowls. This morning we can leave Big 10 not having winning bowl record this season at Noon ESPN 846 vs Penn State. 8 pm tonight # 51 RPI UGA takes on # 19 RPI Florida men’s basketball ESPNU 883. James Coley a Nick Saban tree showed up with Coach Kirby Smart at Gator Bowl, and has been TE Coach the last 8 years at FSU and Miami of Florida. EVERYONE is down there in Gator Country.

ESPN has us all day today starting this morning at noon in TaxSlayer Gator Bowl vs Penn State team I really want to beat.  Then at 8pm tonight our SEC slate opens  for our men vs Florida in a game we’re predicted to lose by double-digits.  Both games on ESPN Channels 846 and 883 Comcast.

 

The best place to know what’s happening in the bowl games is this URL Link :

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015%E2%80%9316_NCAA_football_bowl_games

 

James Coley has been Tight Ends Coach for 8 years now at FSU with Jimbo Fisher and then at Miami of Florida, and he and Coach Kirby Smart arrived at the Gator Bowl last night.  He worked at LSU in the National Championship 2003 season, and in 2004 season with Coach Kirby Smart there at LSU, then both left with Nick Saban to Miami together – although Coach Kirby Smart spent the 1st Nick Saban Miami year 2005 here as our running backs’ coach first.  So, James Coley is a Nick Saban tree product.  And, a QB by trade has been TE Coach for 8 years in a row now currently unemployed being replaced by Thomas Brown.  Does James Coley replace John Lilly our TE coach today, who turned down the offer to work at Miami of Florida.

 

Our Record at the Gator Bowl is losing 11 of the latest 16 there, covering the entire span of the fired coach.

 

We didn’t make the trip this time, but have seen many of these 11 losses in 16 games there in person.

 

Nick Saban’s 1st phone call was to Jeremy Pruitt. So, when Coach Kirby Smart spoke with his friend Jeremy Pruitt, Jeremy Pruitt already knew and had already been offered and accepted the job at Alabama.  That’s the conversation they had.

 

Neither Penn State nor Georgia has beat a Power 5 Conference Opponent with a winning record, while James Franklin former Vandie Coach coaches Penn State, who fired their O.C.

 

And, of course, we’re 0-1 vs Penn State in another bowl game I did go to long ago.

 

Everyone in Bulldogs’ Nation has reacted to the startling revelation yesterday by Jordan Jenkins and Chris Mayes both seniors, that the fired coach never had intensity in bowl game practices and no intensity in any of his practices all season long this entire mediocre unranked season of beating no team of consequence.

 

2-6 SEC play Auburn is our best win this season.

 

Penn State thinks they have a good defense, and of course against our offense, they figure to appear that way.  Who hasn’t ?

 

Indeed while Coach Kirby Smart tries to win his 4th National Championship in the latest 7 years on January 11, all we have to show for it is 4 losses per season touted as satisfactory by the minions of the fired coach.

 

Were the minions fired too ?

 

This is not a solid year for us again indeed not so again over these latest 8 years.  What can be done while Ohio State’s seniors ended with 50-wins last night, is 40.

 

What can be done is that in 15-game seasons for the top teams still playing after us, is 10.

 

What can be done is a win to even with Penn State who 33 years ago, I watched whip us and it was no fun sitting behind a steel beam.

 

What can be done is that Bryan McClendon can take with him to South Carolina a 1-0 record as interim coach.

 

What can be done is that Bryan McClendon can raise us from unranked AP Poll and unranked Coaches’ Poll under the fired coach 4 of the latest 8 years half the time, and actually get us ranked.

 

What can be done is that only 4 other teams have played in more bowl games than us and only 1 of those has won more than us, and this is therefore VERY SIGNIFICANT !

 

What can be done is that the players themselves figured out with the fired coach around here to de-motivate them that they can motivate themselves better without him than with him here telling them there’s something more important than winning around here.

 

The piss there is.

 

This was NOT  a solid year.

 

The damn coach got fired for this NOT being solid year.

(https://youtu.be/ckL7W0a-6EY?t=4592)

“I wonder what it is that always makes the Rodney’s choose the wrong side?”

 

James Coburn Our Man Flint

 

Men’s basketball, Florida leads us all-time 100-109 and 33-63 in Gainesville.  Florida is ahead of us in assists to turnovers, rebounds and defense.

 

So everybody today is down there in Gator Country.

 

I don’t give a shit what Alabama does or does not.  They’re our rival damn it.

 

They won.  We don’t get our Coach until 12 January.  We fired our coach 29 November and ESPN announced Coach Kirby Smart 36 hours later.  That’s 6 weeks and 2 days without him.  Jesus Christ !

 

The Lady Bulldogs play tomorrow at Texas A&M.

 

We had 12 inches of rain in December when we usually have 3 and 70 inches of rain for 2015 when we usually have 49.  So, Lake Lanier is 5 feet over Full Pool and 9 feet under flood stage.  We never had a chance to keep Jeremy Pruitt.  There never was ANY chance whatsoever that the fired coach would in fact be here indeed for this game, let alone next season.

 

So, why is it that you were so wrong that he would be here you bragged to me Bluto ?  That his performance was satisfactory.  Why are you always wrong about EVERYTHING ?

 

Biggest Day of the New Year.

 

 

 

Beat Penn State !

Beat Florida !

 

Go  Dawgs !

 

 

1-2-2016

Lady Bulldogs win 56th straight home non-conference behind Pachis Roberts’ 5-5 free throws and 10-13 from the field. Michael Bennett’s dance is good ? I’ve seen better DE than Michael Bennett too like JJ Watt for example.

Pachis Roberts has had some excellent games for The Lady Bulldogs.  This 25-point effort was brilliant in 28 minutes’ action with only 2 fouls, 5 boards, only 1 turnover, 2 steals, 3 assists, 5 for 5 from the charity stripe and 10 of 13 from the field !

 

How about that going into SEC play next.

 

Marjorie Butler WATCH : 1 of 5 from the field.  There is little need to say anything to her about her shooting.  She refuses to listen that we have many far better shooters than herself.  Why does she do this every game ?

 

Were I half as smart as she, I would dribble the ball up the court and pass it off.  Be done with it.  Why shoot ?  It ruins your game gal.  I have played with many ones who could not shoot.  They know their role.  They do what they do.  It’s like a 2nd baseman.  They are NOT there for anything but defense.

 

I have grown to enjoy these games all on TV now thanks to The SEC Network.

 

Great announcers.

 

Insightful commentary.

 

Caliya Robinson once again proved she gets it !  Budding superstar in the making for certain !  4 of 7 from the field.  2 of 3 free throws.  9 rebounds.  9.  2 assists.  3 blocked shots !  Only 1 turnover.  And, 2 assists !  In only 23 minutes’ action only 2 fouls.  Outstanding effort !

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/stats/2015-2016/uga13.html

 

Pachis Roberts is a beautiful lady who played at McEachern in Powder Springs.  She’s a 2.

 

Pachis Roberts is just a Junior so we get her all this year and next year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have seen better defensive ends than Michael Bennett.   JJ Watt for example.  So the Seattle Seahawks’ defensive end who says Todd Gurley II is no damn good as a running back finds in fact far better defensive ends than himself.  Michael Bennett only  has 1 Pro-Bowl in all these years and he is already 30 years’ of age.

 

And, you call your dance good, Michael Bennett ?

 

 

I’ve seen a better dance than yours too Michael Bennett.

 

Texas A & M undrafted in 2009 Michael Bennett ?  Excuse me.  Todd Gurley II is a LOT better football player than you EVER will be.  Anyone would be a better dancer Michael Bennett.

 

12-29-2015

Lady Bulldogs Monday night 28th at 7 pm – Marjorie Butler watch

Marjorie Butler in her most recent game, again, was 2 of 6 from the field, yet only 2 other Lady Bulldogs played more minutes.

 

Joni Taylor has to explain that ?

 

Why would our WORST SHOOTER get more minutes than EVERYONE else on the team except 2 players ?

 

After Monday night’s game, it’s all SEC games.

 

Last season Margorie Butler ran off Coach Andy Landers with her shooting.

 

The year before last, Coach Andy Landers was NOT PLEASED with her shooting.

 

The year before that she also could not shoot.

 

God Damn it Majorie Butler QUIT SHOOTING !

 

Pass the ball to all the other gals.  You can NOT shoot gal.

 

I will be GLAD when you are gone after this season.

 

Best of luck in the medical school.  I am certain you will do well.  If you want to be Academic All-America you have to be a STARTER.

 

You keep shooting the ball, and you will HAVE TO BE YANKED.

 

You are a very selfish player Majorie Butler and a horrid shooter.

 

I am tired of it.

Hoops’ Dawgs Mark Fox has it going on, now off until Tuesday 29th then SEC slate we’re ready for. Lady Bulldogs play tonight 10-1 RPI # 7. Joni Taylor has a problem 29% from the field for Marjorie Butler’s career here at Georgia 98 of 328 shots !

12-23-2015

 

Merry Christmas !

 

Mark Fox is a KEEPER.  He really has it going on.  2 ACC teams slaughtered !  The Hoops’ Dawgs are now off until Tuesday 29th, then we go into our SEC slate we’re ready for after that game Tuesday.  That was GREAT FUN watching that last night on Comcast 792 SEC Network !

 

https://blutarsky.wordpress.com/2015/12/22/nice-work-if-you-can-get-it-4/

 

I have NO QUESTIONS about it !

 

Of course, I lettered in this sport TOO, unlike Bluto – who doesn’t play ANY sports.

 

The Lady Bulldogs play tonight, are 10-1 on the season with RPI # 7, however, they have one very selfish player on the Lady Bulldogs’ team who by herself made Andy Landers QUIT coaching knowing he had to put up with her yet all year this year !  A fantastic gal Academic All-America like Coach Kirby Smart, but damn the gal can NOT shoot to save her soul.  I am so aggravated with her.  She has done this all 4 of her years here, when she is surrounded by EXCELLENT SHOOTERS who CAN shoot the ball.

 

Joni Taylor better figure it out, or hit the road !

 

We LOST at Michigan State by 21 points when she went 0-3 from the 3-point line and 0-6 from the field, making no free throws.  Marjorie Butler is our point guard, and even with no one to play point, Joni Taylor should have BENCHED her ass right then because Joni Taylor recruited her here and has seen what a horrible shooter she is, yet JACKS IT UP.

 

We had a guy on the men’s team like this year’s ago Litterial Green .

 

Litterial Green attempted 26 shots from the 3-point line in his professional career and made 2.  That’s a .07 shooting percentage.

 

Litterial Green

 

God Damn ballhog at Georgia, he drove me to remember him to this day.

 

The Atlanta Crackers had a guy like this, and the Braves called him up !

 

 

Mack Jones has passed away now 2004, but I swear to God I watched all the time swing at any ball thrown BEHIND HIS DAMN BACK ! All of them.  They threw it behind his back, Mack Jones swung at it !  We went every night to the Atlanta Crackers’ games at Ponce de Leon Ballpark. I cringed to see him come to the plate.

 

http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/j/jonesma01.shtml

 

For his career, Mack the Knife, Mack F. Jones had 3091 at-bats !  He struck-out 756 times !  Batting Average ?  Hell no, strike-out average of .244

 

For this, the Braves paid him ten thousand a year and then 18 thousand a year at Atlanta.  We went to Fulton County Stadium when the Crackers moved there and then the Braves and I had to put up with him then, again.

 

It’s like reading any Bluto – state senator get the picture post the dumbass writes as he is ALWAYS WRONG, or any lie from Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor – which was every word out of his mouth and still is.

Mack Jones’ fielding average was only .975.  The guy sucked !

 

Litterial Green averaged 2.9 points per game !  And, God knows he jacked the damn ball up.  He averaged 1 assist per game.

 

1.

 

All these guys are better free throw shooters for us than Litterial Green :

 

Shandon Anderson Willie Anderson Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Vern Fleming Jarvis Hayes Cedric Henderson Jumaine Jones Alec Kessler Trey Thompkins Damien Wilkins  Dominique Wilkins*

http://www.basketball-reference.com/friv/colleges.cgi?college=georgia

 

So, why wasn’t Litterial Green  an All-America player for us ?

 

UGA Basketball All-Americans
  • 1990 – Alec Kessler (UPI)
  • 1985 – Cedric Henderson (AP All-Freshman)
  • 1984 – James Banks (Playboy)
  • 1984 – Vern Fleming (Kodak)
  • 1983 – Vern Fleming
  • 1982 – Dominique Wilkins, 2nd Team (Consensus)
  • 1981 – Dominique Wilkins, 2nd Team (Sporting News)
  • 1970 – Bob Lienhard (Helms)
  • 1969 – Bob Lienhard (Helms)
  • 1953 – Zippy Morocco (Helms)

 

Because he COULD NOT SHOOT THE BALL !

 

Who has TAKEN THE MOST SHOTS FOR US ?

 

Field Goal Attempts
  • Career – 1,611, Litterial Green (1989-92)
Free Throws Made
  • Career – 549, Alec Kessler (1987-90)
Free Throw Attempts
  • Career – 744, Litterial Green (1989-92)

Who do you think is our career scoring leader ?

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/career-stats-leaders.html

 

Ballhog bad shooter Litterial Green.

The Lady Bulldogs have some big games coming-up :

 

Florida twice

Texas A & M

Missouri twice

Kentucky

Mississippi State

South Carolina

Tennessee

 

If Marjorie Butler shoots like she has here for us in these games, we lose all 9 of those games and end the season with 10 + losses.  Starting out 10-1 this would be a disaster.

 

When Litterial Green hit only 39 % of his field goals with Orlando, his career was over.  They finally figured the guy out !  I hated watching him play.

 

Litterial Green came back though after several years of no one wanting him, and shot 0 % for Cleveland and 21 % for Milwaukee.  This ended his career.

 

I could have told them.

 

http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/g/greenli01.html

 

Now, on the other hand, our men’s team is # 44 RPI with # 3 Strength of Schedule in the nation !

 

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Men.html

 

We have so many guys who can shoot the ball that it’s not funny.

 

Marjorie Butler

#24, G, Georgia

 

3-point shots in her career here, in 125 Marjorie Butler attempts, our ballhog point guard has made 26 for 19 % from the 3-point line.  She’s actually gotten WORSE over her 4 years here now.

 

29% from the field for Marjorie Butler’s career here at Georgia 98 of 328 shots.

 

http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaw/players/37111/

 

 

Let our First Lady Mary Beth Lycett Smart – in heels take THOSE shots for us instead !  She’d drill them !

 

 

NCAA March Madness looking good for both men and women – Our Dirty Dozen RB will be just fine in bowl game ! All I want for Christmas

12-21-2015

 

Merry Christmas to everyone  this week !

 

The men’s win over Georgie tek yellowjackets is our best win of the year, but they are going to fire Brian Gregory as soon as they can afford it.  We have a full squad and are ready for SEC play.  UGA Hoops’ Dawgs are # 40 in the RPI, on target for the NCAA Tourney.  It seemed like we would never get over the Jim Harrick, Sr. Jr. show, hires that were made by Mike Adam$ at the specific advice by Vince Dooley that he had “reservations.”  He was quite open about all that before Mike Adam$ insisted he knew he was good at Pepperdine. We have turned the corner finally this season.  We have a very good team, as we all saw yesterday.

 

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Men.html

 

The ladies are doing quite well.  Amazing when we have such a challenge shooting the ball.  The Lady Bulldogs are # 6 RPI today !   We beat the RPI # 9 and RPI # 8 this season !  And, the Lady Bulldogs also beat Georgie tek yellowjackets who have no good win and go into ACC play totally unprepared.

 

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Women.html

 

 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Gregory

 

Our football team has only 1 game left before all this crap is behind us, and it has been now 4 weeks and one day now since Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor was FIRED, with his announced by ESPN 36 hours later.  We have loads at talent at running back, and I have no concern is this area at all.  Our Dirty Dozen Running Backs have NOT been given the football; but, again all of this is behind us after just one more game – a game where NEITHER opponent has beat a Power 5 Conference foe all season with a winning record.  Maybe something can be done about our 5 wins in 16 games at the Gator Bowl by Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor – fired 4 weeks and 1 day ago now.  Our recruiting class is ranked # 14 with no one committed since we lost 3 of 4 games in October !  I would like to beat Penn State to even our record with them All-Time.

 

https://blutarsky.wordpress.com/2015/12/20/down-to-two/

 

Yeah !

 

Merry Christmas !

 

All I want for Christmas is a    new gym !

 

For the new year, I’d like to see Jake Eason, whom Coach Kirby Smart turned-around despite the dumbass move of his predecessor to try to save his job by flying out there the very day before he was fired by a boss whom he reported to for 6 full complete seasons and therefore knew it, become UGA’s # 5 NFL 1st Round 1st Pick in the NFL Draft.  We have 4 previous NFL Draft # 1 picks overall.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Georgia_Bulldogs_in_the_NFL_Draft

 

Matthew Stafford  2009

Harry Babcock  1953 WR also KR

Charley Trippi 1945 who went on and was equivalent to Super Bowl MVP

Frank Sinkwich Half back

 

Jake Eason ?

No question Greg McGarity has staked his future on unproven coaches such as Joni Taylor Lady Bulldogs and Coach Kirby Smart

12-16-2015

 

Honestly, I thought we deserved to have a new gym and proven head coaches.

 

Let’s look at his 2 new hires now shall we  ?

 

The Lady Bulldogs have not skipped a beat for season 1 but how could they when Andy Landers left the program retiring and left us with 4 top senior starters.  While Andy Landers left Joni Taylor with 4 Senior Starters, The Lady Bulldogs are set to have 1 of their better seasons.

 

That is saying something !

 

The Lady Bulldogs have 3 very impressive wins and only 1 loss on the season to a team who is very good and spanked us hard at their house.  A 21-point loss at Michigan State, a team we beat last year.  A game where we demonstrated how poorly we can shoot.  This remains a point of emphasis as we wind down our non-conference slate when the Finals are over.  We must make our free throws and have the gals who can shoot, take the shots.

 

# 29 in the AP and # 29 in Coaches’ Polls week 6 now :

 

http://warrennolan.com/basketballw/2016/polls

 

The Lady Bulldogs Strength of Schedule is # 28 :

 

http://warrennolan.com/basketballw/2016/predictedrpi

 

The Lady Bulldogs RPI is # 6 :

 

http://warrennolan.com/basketballw/2016/rpi

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_Women.html

 

Are we UCONN ?

 

Unfortunately, no.  We have the Stegesaurus and UCONN comes here and takes our great gals in-state to play on their teams.

 

Would a new gym benefit Joni Taylor and her Lady Bulldogs ?

 

Without question, it would assist in keeping our talent in-state.

 

It would help Mark Fox too on him getting in-state talent.

 

Our Facilities for Men’s and Women’s Basketball are not that which we provide to our football team.

 

Our next game is Sunday at 2 pm for The Lady Bulldogs – watch all games live free on georgiadogs.com.

 

Our next home game for The Lady Bulldogs is a week from today next Wednesday 23rd.

 

9-1 on the season.

 

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Women.html

 

The SEC slate starts for The Lady Bulldogs on January 3rd.  The day after our coachless Gator Bowl game.

 

Bowl Game Saturday Jan 2nd and SEC season Lady Bulldogs Sunday Jan 3, 2016.

 

There is a lot of basketball before March Madness, and The Lady Bulldogs program is the # 6 best program in the nation.  So, we have a proud tradition of not only doing well, but doing very well in March Madness with our Lady Bulldogs.  We also graduate all of them, like our First Lady in heels Mary Beth Lycett Smart.

 

Mackenzie Engram  in her 2nd year hasn’t broken-out yet

Mackenzie Engram is shooting a very good 41 % from the floor and less than respectable 68 % free throws, 3rd best rebounder, and 3rd best block shots averaging 10 points a game.  Mackenzie is a very pretty lady.

 

Tiaria Griffin is our sharpshooter 1 of the 4 seniors
She is shooting a very good 42 % from the floor, outstanding team-leading 82 % free throws, and team-leading 38 % from the 3-point line, 3rd most assists, least number of turnovers, 2nd most steals averaging 15 points a game, destined for great WNBA career obviously.

 

Shacobia Barbee is our leader on the court

She is shooting 46 % from the field but only 64 % from the charity stripe despite getting the most free throws from her aggressive style play, team-leading rebounder with nearly 10 a game, with the least number of fouls on the team headed to stardom in the WNBA, team assist leader !  Averaging 13 points a game.

 

Merritt Hempe is a workhorse inside

She benefits greatly from the strong cast getting her the ball shooting 56 % from the field and the same from the free throw line, which is not good from the free throw line, while her shots from the field are underneath,  2nd on the team in rebounds and most on the team personal fouls, 2nd most blocked shots, averaging 13 points a game.

 

 Marjorie Butler Academic All-America our sure-handed point guard headed to Medical School

She is nearly the team-leader in fewest turnovers and has the ball the whole time !  Amazing dribbler.  Also nearly the team-leader in assists obviously.  She shoots only 67 % from the free throw line which is a hinderance, has taken the team’s 3rd most 3-point shots making only 5 of 28 for 17 % which has to stop I called before the season began, and shoots a team-low from the field worst on team 31 % which is also something I pointed-out pre-season she had to NOT do.  Do not take the shots.  Dish it off only.  She holds the entire team back when she shoots, and if she takes a lot of shots, we have no hope at all in the up-coming SEC slate.  Averages 5 points a game.

 

All but Mackenzie Engram are seniors and she a sophomore.

 

Joni Taylor has several super-subs including her Freshman recruit she signed this season :

 

Caliya Robinson  Joni Taylor gets Freshman sensation Caliya Robinson in the games and she puts the ball in the hoop !  Averaging 7 points a game.  She shoots 50 % from field outstanding and 73 % from the free throw line also top-notch !  2nd best free throw shooter on the team and 2nd best on the team from the field !  Team-Leader in Blocked Shots despite not starting until next season with The Great Exodus of 4 senior starters for Joni Taylor.

 

Need to make hay now Joni Taylor !

 

And, getting it done !

 

Amber Skidgel Joni Taylor’s 2nd super-sub sensation Freshman will Start next season as well for Joni Taylor and is an absolute force underneath.  In high school, she scored a lot of points, in college she has not gotten untracked yet – just not shooting the ball well at all yet while she gets acclimated to the intense defenses in college ball.  Women’s college basketball really took off once the WNBA settled in and college ball truly is the feeder system where the intensity is just so great !  It’s a lot of fun to watch these gals get the hang of the college game and grow.  Right now, Amber has work to do while Caliya is destined to WNBA greatness !

 

I expected more from Halle Washington at this point and she will do well coming-up, while Pachis Roberts has been injured when she contributes so much to the team.  Haley Clark plays quite a bit but fouls too much, while Hannahkohl Almire frankly has shown some great promise in her limited play so far.  And, Shanea Armbrister is doing fine too.

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/stats/2015-2016/teamcume.html

 

That’s our dozen gals and their play so far.  It’s been fun watching them !

 

Right now, a Starting 5, and two super-subs.

 

And 5 significant players who come off the bench where 2 more starters have to come from for next season for Joni Taylor.

 

But Joni Taylor HAS NOT RECRUITED WELL replacing Andy Landers and will leave this team with ALL THESE SENIORS seriously lacking year 2 of Joni Taylor next season.  She has lined-up a great group for 2017.  So 2015 good team.  2016 no hope.  2017 looks great.  This is where we are with Joni Taylor.  I said when Greg McGarity hired Joni Taylor that she just had to recruit well and so far she just has not.

 

Obviously this is NOT GOOD that Greg McGarity hired Joni Taylor only to sit and watch the 2016 recruiting cycle with NO HELP for a team with 4 Starters Seniors.  Bad news.

 

Now for football, well, Coach Kirby Smart is certainly as high a profile non-proven coach as there is.

 

Before the hire, I called for him to be hired.  I listed several proven coaches too.

 

Joni Taylor I did not guess but, I did study her and determine I thought we needed a proven head coach.

 

Joni Taylor will have to recruit 5 serious ladies for next season to make it.

 

Coach Kirby Smart has ALREADY proven his worth signing the # 1 football player in the nation to QB September 3 against North Carolina in the Peach Bowl Kick-Off Classic.

 

The ratings for that game just went out the roof !

 

Anything he does after that is gravy from my point of view !  His predecessor did as much damage as he could to not only the national brand and huge rebuilding effort but also in jumping on a plane when he knew he was being fired the next day to mess it up as best he could for us with Jake Eason.  Kirby has to prove Nick Saban taught him to be a head coach.

 

So, at this point after all my harassing of his predecessor to admit he didn’t care about winning and forcing him to be fired – I am ecstatic about Coach Kirby Smart turning this around for Scholar Athlete Jake Eason to join-in on Coach Kirby Smart’s Vision for doing better than we have the previous 8-year period, referred to by Jake Eason at the trophy ceremony announcing he’s buying-in with Coach Kirby Smart as tough times for Bulldogs’ fans.

 

Joni Taylor has proven capable on the Court and talking to the press, and in recruiting to-date not well although with some possibly lined-up for 2017 so far.

Coach Kirby Smart is not an unknown or unproven or unknowledgeable or someone who has to prove himself in the years up-coming – not after getting Jake Eason here he is NOT  !  He was dealt a serious blow by his predecessor trying to save his job he knew flying out there only to have Ben Cleveland have to tell him the VERY NEXT DAY after he left, that he’d been FIRED !

 

Anyway, Coach Kirby Smart is my hero, not only for marrying Mary Beth Lycett, being Academic All-America, Bainbridge Georgia Most Favored Son, but for telling you DISNEYdawgs.com fans how full of it you are that 18 days…

 

18 days !

 

Fired November 29, you are still fawning over a guy averaging 4-loss season these latest 8 years of me taking crap off you on the Internet only to have me stuff it down your throat and up your other orifice – since.

 

I nailed it !

 

And, now you.

 

Pat Forde says Coach Kirby Smart is to be determined.

 

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/coaching-carousel-winners-and-losers-210455034-ncaaf.html

 

As far as I am concerned – not now !

 

Not after getting Jake Eason !

 

 

 

As for Greg McGarity, if he builds us a new gym, I will leave him alone forever now.

 

I am satisfied with Coach Kirby Smart and with Joni Taylor !

 

I am happy.

 

You are NOT !

 

I take great satisfaction in both instances !

 

I was right and you were wrong talking about his entire career, because he was fired NOT for that, but because of his last 8 years of nothingness win 3 lose 1.  Adding-in what he did his first 7 years here of win 4 lose 1, wasn’t why he got fired and was not taken into account as much as how he lost it after 2007.

 

Move on.

 

I am happy with Coach Kirby Smart NOW, and I don’t give a hoot that you refuse to apologize to me for being an Internet bully to me to for 7 years because you are proven to be the petulant stupid child I always knew you to be !

 

Write some more for me about how bad the firing of him please !

 

18 days  Good Lord you still fawn over the 4-loss a season last 8 years LOSER with all this talent !

 

Give it a rest !

 

It’s over !

 

I won.

 

I was right !

 

You were, and are, wrong !

 

You’re STILL WRONG !

 

You’ve NEVER been right !

Coach Kirby Paul Smart earned Academic All-America 1998 at The University of Georgia. Chuck Dowdle Interview.

12-10-2015

Fran Tarkenton was The University of Georgia’s first ever Academic All-America in 1960.

There are 131 UGA Academic All-America in all 19 sports, which is # 11 All-Time all schools winning Academic All-America.

Coach Kirby Paul Smart earned Academic All-America at UGA 1998.

Some other of the 131 at UGA All-Time include Bill Stanfill, Kevin McClee, Jeff Pyburn, Terry Hoage, Chad Kessler, Alec Kessler, Matt Stinchcomb, Jon Stinchcomb, Coco Miller, Kelly Miller, Courtney Kupets, Gordan Beckham, Ty Frix, Aaron Murray, and Drew Butler.

 

Congratulations to these Scholar-Athletes for The University of Georgia all 131 of them, including Coach Kirby Paul Smart !

 

True meaning of the word Scholar-Athlete.

 

You will see all 131 UGA Academic All-America at this URL Link :

http://cosida.com/documents/2015/9/24//All_Time_AAA_individual_by_school_D_G.pdf?id=1603

 

 

You will see that UGA is # 11 All-Time with 131 Academic All-America here:

http://cosida.com/documents/2015/9/24//School_all_time_AAA_standings.pdf?id=1598

 

I personally am extremely proud of these 131 ever here at UGA.  They did have to be a Starter on their team AND have the grades which qualified them for Academic All-America to be listed of the 131.  I had the grades; I was not a Starter.  I know how much hard work in the classrooms this requires.

 

To whom much is given, much is expected.  And, these Scholar-Athletes are extremely gifted in the classroom and on the playing field. Rare.  Very Rare.  Very very very Rare.  These are both Gifts.

 

The best of the best.

 

Smart and Athletic.

 

God gives very few both.

 

Then, they had to work hard at both their Academics and their Sports.

 

There is no question that Coach Kirby Paul Smart is special.

 

This is what the Press Release was trying to say, but did a poor job of it.  I had to look it up. I thought I remembered this when he was here 1998.  I certainly remembered it about Fran Tarkenton, Matt Stinchcomb, Jon Stinchcomb, Kirby Smart, Gordan Beckham, Drew Butler, Alec Kessler, Chad Kessler, Ty Frix, Bill Stanfill, Kevin McClee, Aaron Murray, Jeff Pyburn, Kelly Miller, Coco Miller, and Terry Hoage.

 

We will continue to excel with Coach Kirby Paul Smart Academic All-America UGA, 1st Team All-State AAAA Bainbridge High Football Baseball Basketball 3-time 3-sport Letterman, 1st Team All-SEC Georgia Bulldogs Defensive Back DB, Captain Georgia 4-Years SEC Academic Honor Roll, and Christian married to our own Lady Bulldogs Mary Beth Lycett Smart who before Sunday was the more famous of their family !  BMOC Bainbridge Georgia Most Famous son after Governor Marvin Griffin Army Brigadier General Big Man on Campus.

 

He is BMOC now !

His Dad, Head Football Coach Bainbridge High School Sonny Smart, said to him this week that he will have to get off the porch and run with the Big Dawgs Now !

 

That is what his Dad said to him this week.

 

As you can see, Kirby Smart has ALWAYS run with the Big Dawgs.

 

Kirby told Sonny this !

 

I thought I always had been running with the Big Dawgs, Dad ?

 

I am certain over time, that those of you still talking about his predecessor 12 days’ later, such as Bernie yet again today will soon realize we are ALL All-In behind Kirby Smart !  And, why !

The Best of the Best and why I cry when I talk about him too : I am just very proud of Coach Kirby Paul Smart.

 

You should listen to this Chuck Dowdle Interview of Coach Kirby Paul Smart :

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/120715aad.html

 

 

Coach Kirby Paul Smart, 39, signs contract $ 5 million 380 thousand 200 dollars $ 5,380,200 through December 31, 2021 with The University of Georgia – A plea to GET WITH THE PROGRAM !

12-6-2015

Coach Kirby Paul Smart, 39 years old, signs contract $ 5 million 380 thousand 200 dollars $5,380,200 per year plus expenses plus retirement including bonuses for PERFORMANCE.

He is not paid for hype and not for leading the kids to Jesus, as his predecessor and damn few remaining of his Apologists, found out.

 

He therefore gets MORE than his predecessor who never did sign the new contract paying him over $ 4 million dollars with incentives he never could reach after 2007 any longer.  He lost it.

 

Kirby Smart’s contract is through December 31, 2021 with The University of Georgia.  Kirby is a former scholar-athlete of 3.5 GPA Baseball Football and Basketball at Bainbridge High on Florida border but due West on Alabama border too where he was All-State AAAA.  A tough level of competition down there with all those power houses, for a city of just only 2,900 families.  Now, after Governor Marvin Griffin, he is the most famous person since from Bainbridge.

 

He is paid to be Coach at UGA of Football.  That is a period.

His dad Sonny Smart was head football coach at Bainbridge High 44-26-1 a .6268 win percentage.  After that, Sonny Smart was head coach at Rabun County.

http://ghsfha.org/coaches.php?gName=Smart, Sonny

 

At Georgia 1st Team All-SEC defensive back, not a damn back-up. And, he maintained in the tough Business Degree BBA Finance, courses I took everyone of too a 3.5 GPA.

 

Not a moron like the previous dim-witted son of a bitch.

 

His wife was the more famous before him today.

 

His predecessor is only famous in football because of his long sustained fall from grace coaching after 2007.

 

His coaching staffs and his coaching philosophies were his downfall.

 

They and he did not give a shit about winning.
It was not, he maintained, how he judged himself.

 

Not what was important to him.

 

Kirby and his wife are the antithesis of this BOTH in playing the game at the highest level and education at the highest level.

 

Now, they represent us very well at coaching.

 

The bar is certainly not set highly for Kirby comparing him to his predecessor over the last 8 years of his reign here.

 

Over the entire period starting 2001, he shall not be compared because that is NOT why his predecessor was FIRED.

 

Nor, why Kirby was hired.

 

But, for what he did after 2007.

 

 

 

 

1999 Kirby was hired by Jim Donnan as Administrative Assistant UGA Won Outback Bowl 8-4

2000 Kirby was hired by Chris Hatcher DB Coach Valdosta State Division II 1st Round 10-2

2001 Kirby promoted to D.C. Division II Quarterfinal Valdosta State 12-1

2002 Bobby Bowden recognized and hired him Graduate Assistant lost to us Sugar Bowl 9-5

2003 FSU Graduate Assistant still at FSU Orange Bowl 10-3

2004 Nick Saban recognized and hired him DB Coach LSU CapitalOne Bowl 9-3

2005 his predecessor here hired him as RB coach ? Sugar Bowl Ga Dome 0-28 not him 10-3

2006 Nick Saban bailed him out as RB coach ? back to Safeties Coach Miami Dolphins 6-10

2007 took him with him to Alabama Assistant Head Coach/DB Independence Bowl 7-6

 

 2008 – promoted to Defensive Coordinator – made all defensive play calls

 

2008-2015 made Top 10 Final AP & Coaches Polls all 8 seasons :

 

12-2 in 2008 Bama  Nick Saban lost to 13-1 FL and 13-0 Utah. UGA 10-3 lost 9-4 GT.

14-0 in 2009 Bama Nick Saban. UGA 8-5 lost to 7-6 KY 7-6 vols

“The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.”

 

No, sir the trick was to Fire the predecessor to Coach Kirby Smart – despite all the excuses and hype by a small vocal clique who made asses of themselves – telling EVERYONE that they can not make these statements about such a fine outstanding man, who was in fact a shitass coach after 2007.

 

You tried to CENSOR me, didn’t you ?

 

So that THIS would not happen as I guaranteed it would !

 

You told me I was not as good a football fan of this program as you because I dared to say clearly and loudly that despite 86 NFL Draft Picks 17 of whom are now Starters in the NFL # 5 best in the nation talent with the # 8 Average Scout.com Recruiting Ranking, after 2007 he could not beat his way out of a wet paper bag no matter how you sliced it.

 

He was NOT in the Top 25 Not against Top 5 teams after 2007.

He was NOT in the Top 25 Not against Top 10 teams after 2007.

He was NOT in the Top 25 Not against Top 15 teams after 2007.

He was NOT in the Top 25 Not against Top 25 teams after 2007.

 

He was NOT in the Top 25 vs Top 5, Top 10, Top 15 or Top 25 teams – Not for time of game OR for the season year – after 2007 !  Yet, we’re # 11 All-Time in Wins and he had the # 8 Average Scout.com Recruiting Ranking as verified by his # 5 most NFL Draft Picks 17 of whom are now starting in the NFL !

 

He was also NOT in the Top 25 versus bowl teams after 2007 !  He was in fact 37-1 vs non-bowl teams and only 36-31 vs bowl teams after 2007.  After 2007, his record of 73-32 averaged 4 losses per season exactly.  Jesus Christ, if the opponent after 2007 played in a bowl game the season he played them, likely as NOT he lost to one of the teams in 1 of the 41 bowl games the top 80 teams.

 

 

 

Despite all the talent – or, maybe more accurately stated as WITH ALL THIS TALENT – he is in fact an underachiever after 2007 – a storied Charlie Brown of college football for 8 long excruciating years of INEXPLICABLE LOSSES !

 

Best coach at UGA all-time ?

 

Bullshit – not the coach I WATCHED IN PERSON for 8 years do shit !

 

Coaches like folks in all professions, sometimes start out well and hit a wall.  Quit.  Give up.  Have some OTHER AGENDA they think they are judged on based upon their inner clique propping them up, and telling them they are SAFE and will NOT and CAN not be replaced.

 

You are SO FULL OF SHIT !
Aren’t you ?

 

I replaced his sorry ass.

 

Didn’t I ?

 

And, for what he did NOT do after 2007 – nothing to do AT ALL whatsoever  for his entire career because he was so great to begin with at # 7 nationally 2001-2007 against any sub-groups of opponents including vs Top 5, Top 10, Top 15, and Top 25 opponents !

 

You acted like and really frankly still do, if you IGNORE Thomas Brown about after 2007, he is UGA’s all-time winningest coach.

 

NOT AFTER 2007, he is NOT gentlemen !

 

Get WITH THE PROGRAM !

 

But, I can not say that on YOUR BLOG !

 

You get that ?

 

Guess what dumbass ?

 

You FAILED to shut me up and I made my points as I did representing Georgia on our Debate Team !

 

I ate you up and spat you out for 8 years of your whining get on the damn bus.

 

I am NOT getting on your damn bus.

 

I was RIGHT all along !

 

You know why tens of thousands read my blog now ?

 

Because THEY all know you were WRONG and I RIGHT as rain !

 

Who was right and who was wrong all along ?

 

Go ahead.

 

You can say it !

 

We ALL know !

 

Excuse me.  It takes just as much effort to make up excuses and lie about a dumbass underachiever as it does to actually tell the damn truth !

 

I won !

 

You LOST !

 

Stick it up your ass !

 

Did you get that ?

For this “effort” by his predecessor we play in the Gator Bowl at the Gator Bowl in hellhole Jacksonville AGAIN against 7-5 Penn State

7-5 Penn State coached by former Vandie Coach James Franklin :

10-27 LOST to Temple

10-38 LOST to Ohio State

21-23 LOST to Northwestern *

16-28 LOST to Michigan *

16-55 LOST to Michigan State *

* LOST last 3 in a row

Penn State 2-5 vs Bowl teams 5-0 vs non-bowl teams

Booby Prize

Again !

Another meaningless Bowl Game !

http://www.cfbtrivia.com/cfbt_detail.php?steam=Penn%20St.&fry=2015&thy=2015&sasrt=WP&jrc=on&cres=1&scrview=1&jpl=on&spl=on&sortby=Year

 

Penn State lost to EVERY Power 5 Opponent with a Winning Record !

7 wins Buffalo, San Diego State, Rutgers, Army, Indiana, Maryland, Illinois

 

None of the 7 wins over a Power 5 team having a Winning Record.

 

UGA was steamrolled in humiliating losses blown-out 7 times after 2007 by more than 3 TD and twice again this season by Alabama and Florida.  We also lost to the vols who are unranked by both the AP and Coaches’ Polls and who were at time of game as well.  We are unranked in either the AP or Coaches’ Polls as well.

 

I sure would like to be on the National Stage at the end of the season, any season, against a team ranked at the Top of the Final AP Poll, us also ranked at the Top of the Final AP Poll – something we have accomplished 15 times here at UGA, none in the last 15 years however.

 

Bryan McClendon is our coach for the Gator Bowl.  He is the son of Willie McClendon who set UGA Rushing Record 1,312 yards 1978, and who also Won The SEC Championship 1976 for us when he averaged 5.8 yards per play and scored 5 TD.  Bryan’s Dad Willie McClendon is an All-SEC 1st team RB 1978 and SEC Offensive Player of the Year 1978 and Chicago Bears drafted RB.

 

So, THIS closes the books as per above on our former coach and predecessor to Coach Kirby Smart who must do as well as or better than his predecessor over his last 8 years here as set-out herein for his up to $ 5,380,200 annual salary including performance bonuses not including retirement benefits.  He has an unlimited expense account.  He replaces the OUSTED coach fired not for his wins from 2001 here, but because of his record AFTER 2007.

 

You have attempted to deny my point about AFTER 2007 by highlighting his wins from 2001.

 

That was NEVER the issue.

 

From 2001 to 2007, I supported the guy heartily !

 

You make dumb arguments and LOST because you are not addressing and were NOT addressing what he did after 2007.

 

Not that you get that even now.

 

Or give a shit.

 

Because you don’t.

 

You just WANTED YOUR WAY.

 

And, thought you had created a clique to insure you got your way, and instead are left holding the bag, the same as South Carolina today !

 

What bag are you left holding ?

 

The bag that 10-win season this 2015 season insures your guy comes BACK !

 

As you can see, there remain 33 coaches who can achieve 10-win season 2015.

 

Excuse me 32.

 

Yours can NOT !

 

Ha ha ha !

Mary Beth Lycett Smart is Kirby’s wife.  She was an outstanding player for The Lady Bulldogs starting 51 games averaging 23 wins a season and a outside sharpshooter.  The Lady Bulldogs today beat # 21 Seton Hall 70-52 in a  blow-out to run our record to 8-1 on the season.

Mary Beth wore red and black last night at The SEC Championship Game her husband has now Won 5 times, while the former coach here showed his dumbassness again wearing ALSO red and black TIE doing the U sign and wore a Bulldogs’ emblazoned belt being announced as their coach at Miami of Florida against whom we have a 7-4-1 record.

 

It’s great to be a Georgia Bulldog !

 

And, the stupefying on-going still bullshit that the ousted coach was great these current 8 years now, is nothing but sour milk about a wimp-ass God Damn freaking underachieving football coach who is gone.  It is to perpetuate their view that he would instead still be here, and to save face for them guaranteeing not only he would, but that I was somehow wrong all this time, that he is a dumbass, a former back-up who did NOT play the game, that he had a conflict of interests in a trophy for everyone such as making Faton Bauta the QB against our # 1 Rival he won 5 of 15 against and leading the boys to Jesus, and that – For 8 years he was a shell of the man who after 2007 just simply LOST IT.

 

I am more than satisfied that you care not one friqin’ iota about my alma mater’s football program to see you still today continue your harangue about you want your son to play for such a damn loser that at kick-off Game 5 of 2008 he was 80 % win percentage exactly 76 wins of 95 at 76-19 a win rate of win 4 lose 1 and since only win 3 lose 1 – mediocre.

 

What he did from 2001 was not the issue although you tried to deflect that it was.

 

It was what he did after 2007.

 

I defined that time period HERE on this blog.

 

I am right.

 

You are wrong, and FAIL to admit it as a man.

 

Get over it !

 

Get some BALLS !

 

Grow a PAIR !

 

Act like we are accustomed to 15 times previously before him being on the National Stage at the end of the 15 seasons, EVERYONE watching us and mostly winning those games at the tune of THE VERY BEST in the nation, 6 times of which we were named # 1 by this poll or that poll.  Big Bowl Games with both teams ranked at the TOP of the Final AP Poll.

 

Be a man !

 

Admit you were WRONG all these years !

 

Or, not – I could give a shit about such ball less babies.   In fact, I like it better that you categorically refuse to APOLOGIZE or ADMIT you HAVE BEEN WRONG all these 8 years of hate by you – bullying by you of me.

 

You are wrong and you were WRONG every time I posted about him all these years after 2007  because like him – you are dumbass pussies !

Mark Schlabach, ESPN Senior Writer and former UGA beat-writer for the AJ-C, announces 36 hours after the former coach was FIRED for his last 8 years of REALLY lousy football that his sources tell him Sunday December 6 we will formally introduce Kirby Smart head coach at age 39 just after The SEC Championship Game. – – – Turn him loose Nick Saban !

 

 

36 hours after his predecessor was FIRED, Kirby has been hired at his alma mater according to ESPN.  Kirby was offered this gig after the last regular season game as a feeler if Jere Morehead would approve, accepted instantaneously, and is going through the vetting process starting Sunday morning November 29, 2015 when he formally was offered the job by Jere Morehead through AD Greg McGarity. Kirby has coached here at Georgia TWICE before, FSU, LSU, Miami Dolphins, and Alabama.

1st team All-SEC defensive back hometown Bainbridge, Georgia, Kirby played with Champ Bailey and is 4-year letterman here, as well as 4-time All-SEC Academic Honor Roll – something I can appreciate and 1 of the major ingredients for him as our coach – that and his dogged determination and audibles he called at the line of scrimmage.  Academic All-America and 1st Team All-SEC after high school AAAA 1st Team All-State, Junior Beta Club, Beta Club, Dean’s List and Honor Rolls !

 

This Coach is not like the FIRED guy !  He is truly Smart.

 

I am NOT falling for this shit that a player at Alabama who has had him for 5 years’ time, is shaming him into staying 6 weeks’ and 2 days.  Excuse me, Alabama, he is OUR COACH now.  If you wanted him, pony up the $5,380,200 we are paying him instead of your $1.3 million.

Broyles Award and AFCA FBS Assistant Coach of the Year winner, the Bulldog defensive back, is Nick Saban’s top paid assistant coach, and 1 whom Nick Saban has specifically groomed to be a head coach.

Kirby Smart, long a desired coach here since his 2 previous stints on our staff, is the highest paid assistant coach in the nation at $ 1.35 million a year last year and this year, and has now been hired as our coach according to multiple sources.  We could have hired a seasoned proven head coach but I did list Kirby on a list of candidates. All the others were proven head coaches.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/14269857/georgia-bulldogs-name-kirby-smart-new-head-coach

He will not have to pay the $ 72,000 buy-out to take this job, per his contract.  Whether this means he only could keep Jeremy Pruitt here to help him, is unknown.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/9180008/alabama-crimson-tide-makes-kirby-smart-highest-paid-college-defensive-coordinator

His salary will be more than $ 4 million a year.

BBA degree 1999 UGA, same as mine – with Honors.

9 seasons, 7 as Defensive Coordinator / Linebackers at Alabama, it was time to move-on for Kirby.  He turned down the DC job here when his predecessor here elected to hire Todd Grantham; that was 2010; but Kirby thought long and hard about it.  He has turned down a multitude of head coaching jobs.  He is turning one down at South Carolina right now.

http://espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4816735

Kirby brings his tireless recruiting prowess in this state, while his staff is unknown on the offensive side of the ball or special teams.  He is expected to name a special teams’ coach.  He also kicked his predecessor here’s butt in the games. That’s always good !  Well, it wasn’t at the time.

Kirby finished his career here with 13 interceptions – only 4 in history here have more – including 6 in 1997 and 5 in 1998.

 

http://www.rolltide.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/smart_kirby00.html

If we did not hire Kirby, South Carolina would’ve to replace Spurrier. They are left holding the bag.  Expect the announcement this time next week, by which time Nick Saban will be confirmed as playing for his 4th National Championship with Kirby Smart at Alabama – all 4 with Kirby Smart as the Defensive Coordinator !

I’d rather Kirby coach us in the bowl game in Memphis.

That was 1 of the mistakes his predecessor made here, not wanting to come here 20 December 2000 when Vince Dooley hired him.  In fact, it was going to be AFTER Signing Day 2001 in mid-February if Vince Dooley had not finally put his foot down about it !  He wanted to coach FSU against Oklahoma where his offense looked like warmed-over death – his offense SHUT-OUT !

This was not good for UGA then in 2 ways.   Kirby’s predecessor looked bad; and he was not here.  Then he wanted to say goodbye to his Church in Tallahassee – for 2 months – then, he wanted after all that, to go to an NCAA sponsored Assistant Coach seminar for the 1st two weeks of February.  Then, come here.

His predecessor said he had knocked the lid off this All-Time # 11 Wins’ Program 2001 thereafter beating # 4 vols 2001, but it was in fact a season in which he went 8-4.  He was behind the 8-ball snookered before he ever decided to show-up.  Our recruiting class was left to be held together by Rodney Garner . In fact, Rodney Garner was the coach for all this time, the only coach.

This is a mistake I would like to obviate this time around.  You may recall there was turmoil here at that time and that Kirby Smart’s predecessor had to kick several notable players off the team during all this feet dragging on getting here such as Quincy Carter  whom he kicked-off via remote control from Tallahassee.

A Coach is responsible for his team once he takes the job !  We have a class coming-in in a few days’ time now today that need this information and need Kirby here ! 

Expect that there will be total transparency with Kirby Smart, as he is Smart enough to know all this !  You do not hide information like it is some secret, and of course you do not go into December without a concept in the world who your QB is, nor having even then prepared the back-up for 2016.  Expect under Kirby that suspended players will be announced as punishment – not mixed message that it’s a secret, like it’s ok what they did.

Kirby’s responsibilities at Alabama are over when this is announced.  His livelihood for him, his family, his friends, and for all Bulldogs are reliant upon him taking over what has been a good program under his predecessors here and make it great again !

He will not accomplish this as a lame duck there.  That has NO MEANING any more to him to be coaching anything in Tuscaloosa.  His predecessor here had fans back then and still really today holding on for God knows why; and, they told me I was wrong about that and that it would be great for him to win the national championship at FSU.  They were as wrong about that, as they were about everything since.  Weren’t they ?  Let’s get this right this time please, ok ?  All of us together please ?

Kirby Smart coached at LSU with Nick Saban in 2004 when Jimbo Fisher was the Offensive Coordinator and Will Muschamp was the Defensive Coordinator.  Then, he came here as our running backs’ coach and Won The SEC Championship 2005.  Since then, he has been with Nick Saban with the Dophins and then Alabama.

He spent a couple of good years with Bobby Bowden, too, when his predecessor here now was not there then.

So we have all been huge fans of Kirby Smart forever !

April 16, 2013 :

“Ultimately, my goal in my career is to be a head coach,” Smart told reporters before the BCS National Championship Game in January 2013. “Where that is, I have no idea. It’s not like I wake up every day trying to leave Alabama. I have the best non-head coaching job in the country, period”

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/9180008/alabama-crimson-tide-makes-kirby-smart-highest-paid-college-defensive-coordinator

 

2010 :

“We’re very pleased and happy that Kirby is going to be staying here at the University of Alabama with us,” Saban said. “He’s done a fabulous job for us. He’s one of the finest assistant coaches in the country. You expect guys like Kirby to get lots of opportunities to do things, and we want to continue to help him continue to develop his career here so that when he leaves here it’s going to be as a head coach and probably in a very good situation. So we’re excited about that. We’re happy for him and his family. It’s very pleasing to us.”

http://espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4816735

Kirby Smart was groomed specifically for this job, his lifetime dream job – unlike his predecessor who was not taken under the wing of Bobby Bowden who was fired from FSU.

The bar is set this high for Kirby Smart : That he do better than 37-1 vs non-bowl teams and 36-31 vs teams making a bowl game over the next 8 years and average better than the 73-32 four (4) losses per season.  While he needs to be getting us on the Big Stage at the end of the seasons beating better than # 19 Hawai’i 2007 and # 21 FSU 5-loss team 2002 in the Final AP Poll as the only 2 BCS Bowls his predecessor won, and as his best 2 bowl wins. And, that he develop his back-up QB every year, while not sending mixed messages to the student-athletes, and be better than 5 wins in 15 games against our # 1 Rival. If he can get the game out of that hell hole in Jacksonville, that would be an added plus.  Kirby is expected to win The SEC Championship more often than none in a decade.

Kirby should do better than 7 losses by more than 3 TD in 8 years and better than 12 losses to unranked teams time of game or for season in 8 years’ time, while maintaining an average Scout.com Recruiting Rank of # 8 with high numbers of NFL Draft Picks and while not getting us on Probation.  His goals in discipline are to teach the kids to obey the rules on and off the field, and not send them mixed messages about their objectives on or off the field.  They are here to win, keep their noses clean, graduate –  and whether they are saved or not, is of no concern whatsoever :  It’s a conflict of interest and in Violation of The United States Constitution.

Kirby is being asked to do BETTER than the 73-32 record of his predecessor who was FIRED from his job for his 73-32 his last 8 years here. 9-4 average season for 8 years – THIS is why he was fired.  There seems to be some confusion why he was FIRED.  This is it !  He was NOT fired for his record since 2001 here, but because of his record after 2007.  See to it that you note this, remember this, and state this, not what he did here from 2001. 

Had he won at his 80 % win percentage he had Game 5 of 2008 at kick-off vs Kirby Smart in the Black-Out Game behind 0-31 at half, the favored and higher ranked team, he would not be FIRED and replaced by a BETTER COACH in EVERYONE’S EYES !

 

Most especially mine, who by the way you NEVER DID SHUT UP.

 

Did you ?

 

9-4 for 8 years.

0 SEC Championships in a decade.

 

The Apologists are holding a vigil today on Facebook for the guy who is the Miami of Florida head coach ?  Seriously guys, give it the Hell up.  You LOST.  I won.  It was I who FIRED him, and you are jealous as Hell of ME for doing so.

 

Get over it guys !

 

YOU LOST !

 

I won and so too did the VAST MAJORITY of The Bulldog Nation !

Hopefully, the fans of his predecessor can put that behind them now and can unify under Kirby Smart.  They will always be comparing his predecessor to Kirby Smart because they made so many nasty comments online about it to the point where they have to save face, so Kirby needs to accomplish these specific goals listed here, along with getting here as soon as possible after December 6 Sunday because of this aforementioned in-coming class.

The Bulldog Nation has clearly been a divided nation for at least 8 years now because the predecessor had fans who have been very derisive and have held this program back for years and years and years and years with their low expectations for our program, excuses, and their attitude toward any and every one who wanted more as not as good a fan of this football program as themselves.

There will not be any reason for that moving forward.  Get over it, you and the predecessor lost.  I won and so did the vast majority of The Bulldog Nation !

 

Kirby’s predecessor was # 41 in the nation win/loss record vs top 15 teams 18 losses of the 24 such games after 2007 – his last entire 8 years here

 

and

 

Kirby’s predecessor averaged 4 losses 9-4 average 73-32 his last entire 8 years here as our coach.

 

For this, Greg McGarity called Kirby Smart after the Georgie tek yellowjacket’s debacle.

 

Kirby ACCEPTED instantly November 28, 2015.

 

Kirby’s predecessor jumped on a plane having worked for his boss Greg McGarity for 6 entire full complete seasons.  Together they had compiled a record – not a mini record – their record together of 55-24 for their 6 entire seasons together Greg McGarity his boss and he – averaging 4-losses per season for their 6 seasons together.

He KNEW therefore that he was being FIRED in the morning and did all he could do to squirrel-up the recruitment of Jake Eason, Jacob you call him.  Make it as hard as he could on the man to replace him, since he KNEW he was being FIRED in the morning.

 

Mark Richt was mean-spirited and STUBBORN as HELL his entire 15 years here.  He made decisions which were indicative of this stubborn trait of his – which is completely against all my teachings of Christianity.  Christians are not stubborn.  In fact, Christians are anything but.  This is the antithesis of being a Christian to be stubborn.  Still, daily for 15 years, he was in fact VERY stubborn about EVERYTHING he said and did here.

 

It cost him his job.

 

No one will argue that he was stubborn his entire 15-year period.

 

Christians do NOT demonstrate this stubborn trait.  Christians are the antithesis of this.

 

He was pigheaded that God did NOT CALL him to this Calling as football coach but to be a preacher man he told us all 15 years here – that there was something besides winning that was important here at Georgia.  That if he was judged just as being a college football coach, that that would be a DISASTER he said repeatedly to us ALL for 15 years.

 

Excuse me, we tried to pay you over $ 4 million a year to coach us and did pay you MORE than $ 50 million dollars to win football games.

 

What your personal goal was and remains stubbornly as winning other over to Jesus Christ as THEIR Lord and Savior is NOT what we paid you more than $ 50 million dollars for.

 

You stubbornly refused to sign the new contract.

 

It does NOT exist.

 

We are NOT held by that contract which you STUBBORNLY refused to sign.

 

Hit the road Jack.

 

FIRED.

 

Summarily.

 

“There’s something besides winning that’s important here at Georgia.”

 

The hell you say dumbass.

 

Stubborn dumbass.

 

We paid you to win.  You did so for 7 years and then for the last 8 years, you did NOT.

 

You do not work for a BOSS for 6 years and not know you are being FIRED in the morning for averaging 4-loss season for all 6 years together.

 

He knew that.

 

THAT was the only reason he went to Washington to meet with Jake Eason.  It was another in a long string of dumb moves by Kirby’s predecessor.

 

As soon as Greg McGarity knew of the plane trip out there, he immediately called Kirby to feel-out if Kirby would accept this job if Jere Morehead would approve it ?

 

Kirby said it was his “lifetime ambition.”

 

Then, the next day, Sunday 29 November 2015 Jere Morehead FIRED Kirby’s predecessor and asked Greg McGarity to meet with the press.

 

Then, Ben Cleveland – our OL recruit 2016 Signing Class February 2016 – had to call Jake Eason and explain to him that Kirby’s predecessor had been fired.

 

Jacob Eason – Jake – opened up his recruitment to include Florida and Notre Dame.

 

For their 6 seasons together Kirby’s predecessor and Greg McGarity as his boss, they had gone 10-17 vs ranked teams time of game with # 8 Scout.com average recruiting ranking.

 

2-12 vs Top 10 opponents for the season with # 8 average recruit rank

 

9-20 vs ranked opponents for the season with # 8 average recruit rank

 

30-1 vs non-bowl teams

 

25-23 vs bowl teams ostensibly likely as not to lose to any bowl team

 

http://www.cfbtrivia.com/cfbt_detail.php?fry=2010&thy=2015&teamname=Georgia&cres=1

 

This was beyond intolerable.

 

He was NOT fired for what he did since 2001.

 

Do NOT tell me or anyone EVER AGAIN that he was this or that for his CAREER here for NONE OF US wanted him fired until 2008.

 

Bringing up an entire career record including 2001-2007 is FRUITLESS on your part because you know damn well that EVERY REPLY on the Internet to you will be that this is what he did for his last entire 8 seasons with us and why

 

JERE MOREHAD FIRED Kirby’s predecessor.

 

Quit your whining about Kirby’s predecessor being FIRED.

 

Do NOT call him forced-out or resigned or ask to leave or ousted –

 

JERE MOREHEAD FIRED him.

 

Grow up.

 

For the last entire 8 years you have held The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program up and held us back, giving us ALL Hell and NOTHING BUT EXCUSES, and have always tried to discuss what he did 2001-2007 as not a mini-record of his.  Saying you had to list his ENTIRE CAREER here.

 

Yes he is a fine Christian man.

 

That is NOT why he was FIRED.

 

He was NOT FIRED for his entire career record here.

 

It was for his last entire 8 years here.

 

It is HARDLY  a “mini-record” when it IS his entire last 8 seasons here.

 

That is a MAX-RECORD.

 

8 years.

 

Not a mini-record.

 

He was NOT FLEXIBLE here. NEVER.  NEVER-EVER.  Nothing he did or said demonstrated flexible as his trait.  Christians are FLEXIBLE.  He was NOT.  Not once was he FLEXIBLE.

 

I call that mean-spirited.

 

I call you mean-spirited.

 

You BULLIED me for these last entire 8 years when I TURNED on him.

 

He bullied the players – my heroes.  He played favorites.  He did not get our best players on the field enough.  When he did, he was NOT FLEXIBLE with them.

 

He ran off Jacob Park whom I hoped to be a 4-year starter for us because he was NOT FLEXIBLE.

 

He was not flexible with Cam Newton whom he told could only be TE here.

 

He was NOT flexible from the get-go here demanding ONLY that DJ Shockley be redshirted.    That’s not flexible.  That’s not the opposite or antonym of stubborn.

 

He was stubborn as HELL.

 

15 years of being stubborn.

 

He was FIRED for being STUBBORN.

 

 

 

Kirby needs the experience to kick-off his career here – as he could not possibly have been taught by Nick Saban how to not manage the game as poorly with regards to time-outs, developing his talent, not playing favorites, and when to settle for field goals as his predecessor.

I do NOT want a lame duck coach who is not the head coach to coach my football team in the Bowl Game.

 

NOT.

 

That’s just all wrong !  Nothing right about that at all.

 

Nick Saban should already know that he can not go into the Play-Offs with a Defensive Coordinator who is divided on his loyalties. He is distracted, and needs to be spending his time thinking about THIS JOB – his life’s Calling !  He’s going to be anyway, and Nick Saban’s best bet is to coach the Defense himself for a game or 2 after Sunday !

 

Kirby Smart has not coached ?

 

Bryan McClendon has ?

 

That’s why Bryan McClendon should coach this game ?

 

Look, Kirby Smart needs to make these calls during this game.  He is the coach.

 

Turn him loose Nick Saban !

 

You wrote it into his contract he could take this gig without penalty.  You had to know he needs to not be involved in some dragging-out there once he did take this job sir !

 

Keep your salary there starting Sunday, and we will start paying him here.

 

He needs to be directed ONLY to his Life’s Calling : Here, Nick Saban.

 

Surely you know this !

He has a son Andrew and 2 twin daughters Weston and Julia with Mary Beth Lycett Smart, who was the Lady Bulldogs’ only senior in 2002-03, letterman 4 years as well here 2000-2003.

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/spec-rel/062806aax.html

She was fun to watch play and an outstanding shooter.

She came to The Lady Bulldogs as Miss Georgia Basketball 1999 and joined a strong team of Andy Landers playing with WNBA players the twins­ Kelly Miller, Coco Miller, Deanna “Tweety” Nolan and Kiesha Brown.

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/spec-rel/0203-wrap.html

She was on The SEC Good Works Team.

She graduated from The University of Georgia and has her degree, like me, from here; and she started 51 games for Andy Landers in the backcourt with all this talent around her !  Those teams, I never missed a game of, could shoot !

This year’s team not so much, but The Lady Bulldogs did beat Georgie tek yellowjackets, and only have 1 loss so far on the season, although they have quite a challenge at home coming-up against Seton Hall whose men just beat the Hoops’ Dawgs’ Men’s team of Mark Fox.

 

The Lady Bulldogs averaged 23 wins a season with Mary Beth Lycett Smart.

 

The Lady Bulldogs this season are coached by Joni Taylor, as our only 2nd full-time coach in our entire history.  Mary Beth Lycett Smart is quite the blogger herself and home is only an hour and a quarter from Athens, so she is on the scene here all the time.  The men are 2-2 but did beat Murray State.

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Men.html

 

Remember her now ?  I sure do.  Beautiful lady.  Her long flowing blonde hair was a trademark when she would drain her outside shot !

The Lady Bulldogs are on TV tonight at 7pm from Athens on SEC Network, but my Comcast does not indicate that.  You can watch it on your Smart TV if your HDTV is Smart enough for that here :

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/sched/geo-w-baskbl-sched.html

Or, if not, then you can watch us 3-0 at home take on Mercer tonight on your smart phone or laptop.  The Lady Bulldogs are # 63 in the RPI so they still are on target to get to the NCAA Tournament which they missed last year believe it or not.  Mary Beth Lycett Smart never did.

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Women.html

Maybe they together can get us a replacement for the Stegosaurus !

 

Welcome Home !

 

GATA !

 

Home Run !

 

It’s Great to be a Georgia Bulldog !

SEC Network late this afternoon The Lady Bulldogs “welcome” Georgie tek yellowjackets to Stegesaurus Comcast Channel 792 HD 4 p.m.

11-22-2015

 

Andy Landers left us with a team who can not shoot and those who cannot the worst, are the ones who take the shots.  They’ll be no reprieve of this today in the bitter cold for a team Andy Landers owned.  We can’t even shoot free throws again this year.  Played a good first game.  Last game, not so much losing to Michigan State in East Lansing putting on a performance for the ages across the board in not being able to shoot the bloody ball !

 

Basketball is a game where you get in between your man and the goal, move your feet, and stop the other team from shooting the ball through the hoop and where you do.  If you can’t shoot, you pass the ball to someone who can.  We like to jack it up.  We do that really well !

 

33-4 vs Georgie tek yellowjackets Andy Landers would still beat them, is still beating them in his sleep, beat them like a drum, beat their asses and took names for 37 years, well 33 anyway.

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/w-baskbl/sched/geo-w-baskbl-sched.html

 

Better hope we build a new gym to lure some of this top-talent around in both men’s and women’s basketball to ply their trade in-state with us !

 

We’ve let Georgie tek yellowjackets overtake us by this very method !

Michigan State at East Lansing. You can watch Lady Bulldogs Wednesday night 7:30 pm LIVE for FREE on the Internet. Last year, they brutally tackled Shacobia Barbee after their coach sent their gals out there to purposely foul us, under-cutting her on a drive to the basket in a dirty rotten nasty brutal attack by Jasmine Hines, ordered by Suzy Merchant.

Joni Taylor, our 2nd full-time coach, says  : “I’m overwhelmed. I’ve dreamed about this for a very long time.”

 

Nice biceps Joni !

 

Last year The Lady Bulldogs upset # 16 Michigan State when their coach of 10 years now Suzy Merchant said the refs called too many fouls on her gals, as Jasmine Hines brutally tackled Shacobia Barbee injuring her ankle.  Suzy Merchant sent her gals out there to purposely foul us.  She had NO OTHER STRATEGY !

 

Shacobia Barbee was driving to the basket, when Jasmine Hines left her man, and under-cut Shacobia Barbee, ending her day only 3 minutes into the 2nd half.  Georgia controlled the game from the outset and the game was never in doubt.  You NEVER do that to a basketball player driving to the basket, under-cutting them on the drive.  It’s REALLY NASTY and results in the worst of injuries to basketball players.  You can break a basketball player’s neck doing that.   It’s DIRTY !

 

Maybe their coach will not send out the goon squad to undercut a lady on her way to a lay-up, nor send her troops out to purposely foul, and then cry wolf afterwards.

 

Michigan State Head Coach Suzy Merchant :

” We shot seven free throws this game to their 24 and that’s shocking to me because I thought we got hit in there and I thought we should’ve had a few more opportunities at the charity stripe “

Joni Taylor begins replacement of Andy Landers as Georgia’s only women’s basketball coach Sunday at the Stegesaurus while football gets indoor practice facility.

11-14-2015

Joni Taylor begins replacement of Andy Landers as Georgia’s only women’s basketball coach Sunday at the Stegesaurus, which has held back both the men’s and the women’s Georgia program for years and years.  The kids in this state do not want to come play in this dump, which has not hosted an NCAA Tournament Game in 44 years’ time now.

 

Unless Marjorie Butler is taken off the court 2015 for her horrendous shooting, or doesn’t take a shot, the recruiting which has been poor by Joni Taylor so far, will fail The Lady Bulldogs in her inaugural season.  A highly questionable hire by Greg McGarity, Joni Taylor takes over for The # 5 team in the nation in the tenure of Andy Landers, with zero experience.

I said when she was hired that she had to prove able to recruit this state to come play at the Stegesaurus.  There are no excuses in coaching, only failures.

She has a very talented team, albeit one who can not hit the broad side of a barn with a shot from the field or the charity stripe.

 

Chelsea Newton is Joni Taylor’s assistant coach whom we played against at Rutgers.  At least she could hit her free throws.  We will see if she can teach the gals to hit theirs here.

 

There is a lot more to women’s basketball point guards than throwing up bricks.
