Let’s go play the lousy offensive strategies again this time without Nick Chubb where we line-up and run up the gut every play. Despite the talent doesn’t fit that. We’re going to do that. So go do it. No matching of talent to an offensive strategy.
I can tell you where we are Kirby if you can’t. You lose to vols and they have a 3-game lead on you for SEC East. 3 games. They would have to lose 3 games while you win-out.
WR – Terry Godwin Kirby’s Starter been tentative. No Mecole Hardman Jr. glaringly not thrown to because well he’s a freshman and I want him to concentrate on the secondary and want him to only concentrate on that despite being the # 1 WR on the team and despite the fact that I nearly redshirted him ripping it off in just the last game, finally. And I categorically refuse to play him in the secondary until he knows it. Never mind I am benching one of the secondary. Mecole Hardman Jr. ? He has to learn to play the secondary completely before I put him out there with starters I fired. The starter Kirby ? He didn’t know the secondary ? And you started him all season long. Excuse me Kirby. Freshman bias.
LT – Tyler Catalina – not been the same as Division II Rhode Island vs SEC overmatched Kirby’s Starter. No Ben Cleveland snap glaringly all season long. Sorry Ben Cleveland don’t be a freshman for Kirby. Not only not listed no snap all season for Ben Cleveland despite all these OL woes 2016 and he our # 1 OL recruit. Yeah Kirby let’s redshirt him. Or rip his redshirt off in game what ? 12 ? You get him 3 years and then NFL. Do him like Knowshon Moreno.
LG – Isaiah Wynn – undersized pushed all around all season Kirby’s Starter. No Solomon Kindley freshman snap vs Ole Miss again. Solomon Kindley not listed at all vs vols for Kirby.
TE- Charlie Woerner and Isaac Nauta 2 great hands TE both of them and they suffer fate of freshmen for Kirby who have run rings around Jeb Blazevich Kirby’s Starter. No move of either Charlie Woerner or Isaac Nauta to fill all our holes at WR or on our lousy defense.
QB – Jacob Eason no freshman playing for me Kirby’s Starter vs vols. Not given single snap with # 1 unit all wasted Spring and all wasted Fall until 3 weeks before kick-off. Then for 2 weeks got some snaps with # 1 unit. Then game week North Carolina back to Greyson Lambert # 104 Passing Offense 2015 while Jacob Eason is # 68 Passing Offense 2016. Now Kirby wants Jacob Eason to go beat vols to keep Kirby off the hot seat. Go play vols Jacob Eason see where we’re at ! Go Start and save my butt Jacob Eason even though I gave you 2 weeks of snaps with the # 1 unit since January 12 when I bothered to show-up here. That’s how much sense of urgency Kirby has demonstrated. Now, this, go play vols see where we’re at.
TB – Kirby’s Starter vs vols is Nick Chubb. That’s so when he doesn’t play again after 38 carries vs North Carolina after surgery 9 months prior to 3 ligaments that Kirby has a built-in excuse. Oh Mark Richt didn’t give me any talent and my freshmen can’t talk to the press, practice with the # 1 unit and only play snaps on special teams. My alias is not Kirby but Mark Richt Jr. Nick Chubb Kirby ? Seriously ? Mr. Fumble Brendan Douglas is listed at # 2 Kirby for vols. This means that Kirby’s starter at TB is Brendan Douglas. Oh God help us. I swear to God Kirby. No Brian Herrien poor guy freshman who was none other than at least 1 of 7 players of the game vs North Carolina and clearly the only Player of the Game last week vs Ole Miss and no Elijah Holyfield dare to be freshman.
PK – either William Ham or Rodrigo Blankenship Kirby’s Starter. Seriously. Between them missed more field goals than we’ve made all season but these are Kirby’s Starters. No Mitchell Wasson daring to be a Kirby freshman.
KOR – Kirby’s Starter Reggie Davis. # 100 Kick-Off Returns 2016 Reggie Davis. Oh let’s go find out where we’re at. None of all the talented freshmen Kirby signed 2016. You’d think the freshmen class was not Kirby’s.
DT – 3rd String Michail Carter freshman sensation.
NT – 3rd String Tyler Clark dared to be freshman.
DE – we only line-up one DE and at that position Kirby has Julian Rochester freshman big help listed 2nd string and David Marshall freshman stalwart 3rd String. 2 more freshmen making plays in games but not practicing with the # 1 unit.
SAM – D’Andre Walker freshman listed 2nd String. 2nd fiddle like every other freshman Kirby just signed. Not practicing with the # 1 unit but in games makes the plays.
NO OTHER FRESHMEN LISTED ON KIRBY’S DEPTH CHART AT ALL game 5 vols.
Why haven’t we moved the guys around we do have to make the team better ?
vols find us amusing that we are in this mess on our depth chart. I find Butch Jones amusing with his average # 14 recruiting ranking according to 247Sports.com composite rankings for the 5 years worth including redshirts vols have who with redshirt could be playing us in Athens the day after tomorrow while Kirby’s recruiting rankings for our beloved Georgia Bulldogs is # 8.
vols actually think that they have done something finally with Butch Jones because they beat Florida who hasn’t beat anyone either.
I can tell you this vols.
Butch Jones is coaching for his career the day after tomorrow. He is 11-14 in The SEC. Typical vols’ fans getting all excited before Butch Jones has ever done anything.
vols think all we have for running back is “a couple of freshmen.”
Go do something vols instead of acting like you already have when you haven’t.
vols were an unranked team an entire DECADE now until their 1 bowl win last year at 11 am in the Outback damn bowl when they beat Big 10 Northwestern for crying out loud.
After 2007 vols are 33-41 until last season.
While we are # 56 top university US News and World Report vols are # 106.
What is otherwise amusing besides the sorry school vols are is that Butch Jones keeps his job.

What would be a success for The Kirby Jacob Eason Era ?
Well, since Mark Richt was 73-32 for his last entire 8 years here averaging 9-4, that is EXACTLY what would be a success especially given everyone is predicting 8-4 whatever the heck that is in 15-game seasons for the top teams; but I say that Kirby and Jacob Eason will be instead 11-3 or even 12-2 both of which would be a significant improvement for us and set the stage for Kirby to have 175 wins in the next 15 seasons, not 145 Mark Richt put up in 15 years obviously NOT 10-win average season for Mark Richt but 9.
I was most certainly correct on Mark Richt getting fired, on Jacob Eason being the Starter, as I was what Mark Richt would be last year and the year before that, so it stands to reason I have good credibility on my predictions for this season for Kirby and Jacob Eason.
This despite the fact that I was lampooned as an idiot and not as good a fan of Georgia Bulldogs as those who said I could NOT post to their blogs further that Mark Richt just had to be FIRED or leave and go be a preacher man or to go to some other lesser-football program than UGA where we have EXPECTATIONS so far in ADVANCE of what he put-up here for all the time of his last entire 8 years here.
The Mark Richt Apologists went to EVERY blog I posted at and told them to BAN ME from posting there because I dared to suggest that we could do BETTER than Mark Richt his last entire 8 years. That they were SICK and TIRED of hearing that about such a fine man. That they were BETTER Georgia Bulldogs’ fans than I seasons’ tickets for 59 years. That I was in fact a Georgie tek yellowjackets’ fan.
A fine man and a LOUSY coach for his last entire 8 years here by ALL ACCOUNTS.
When everyone AGREED with me finally my blog took-off and starting getting 10 thousand reads.
Why is THAT ?
Because THEY knew I was right and they wrong.
I let all that slide after we fired him as I had said for 8 years to their chagrin. But, they KEPT it up. Still do keep it up that he so great. No not for his last 8 years he wasn’t.
WAS he ?
It is logical therefore that today you would be in FACT a Miami of Florida fan. You need to SAVE FACE with egg all over YOUR FACE. You must have Mark Richt DO EXTREMELY WELL at Miami of Florida DESPITE THE FACT that he WAS NOT HERE his last entire 8 years.
Further, I state that we will break from the past of being afraid of playing our stars on special teams and that we will RACK-UP on special teams with finally a Special Teams’ Coach. We will NOT have back-up Defensive Ends BLOCKING on special teams. They are 2 completely different skill sets. We will not have walk-ons fair catch kick-offs and then stand there and wait 2 seconds before the 1st opponent shows-up.
We will NOT call time-out when the opponent is going to get a penalty for not being near ready for their special teams’ play.
We will NOT pooch kick-off to give opponent ball at 43-yard line with 13 seconds remaining.
We won’t do ANY of this poor clock management we are well and truly used to.
We will NOT leave our stars in with a 3-TD lead less than 5 minutes to go to go back and on top of record performance carry the ball to get injured not win Heisman Trophy so that we can go up by 4 TD with 5 minutes left.
We will NOT refuse to hand the ball to our Heisman Trophy Candidate running back 1st and goal from the 4-yard line.
We will NOT ask the # 88 passing QB who averaged minus yards rushing to run around at the 4-yard line which he CAN NOT DO and then throw the ball through the end zone which he ALSO can NOT do instead of giving it to our Heisman Trophy Candidate Running Back.
In addition we will SET RECORDS in receiving this season from a DEEP receiving group, that all the tight ends are not all going to be tight ends but receivers and on Defense and running back positions. And with our stable of running backs, we will ALSO set records this season – our Dirty Dozen Running Backs 2016 as I have dubbed them here.
I further am ON RECORD, as you that Mark Richt would still be here today, that Kirby will break with the past and give a start to 10 True Freshmen this season 12 First-Time Players maybe even 13, of a pool I predict is as many as 15 first time players whom Kirby gives a start to this EXCITING 2016-2017 season.
Obviously, I do NOT predict that we will lose to Florida, Ole Miss, vols, and North Carolina with an additional stumble or 2 like Mark Richt always did EVERY YEAR to a team such as Auburn or Georgie tek yellowjackets. We will NOT beat Alabama this season. However we might hang with LSU.
And, since Mark Richt did not win The SEC Championship Game in his last entire ten (10) seasons in a row now, I predict that Kirby will NOT this season either. Nor does he need to. I predict Kirby wins 80% of his games here at UGA whereas Mark Richt won only 73 % of his games here 145-51 obviously NOT 10-win season average and that Kirby does obviously at 175 wins his first 15 seasons by STARK DIRECT CONTRAST.
Jacob Eason will win us two more games than Greyson Lambert would have.
Kirby will do this because he will NOT squander the talent and waste it as Mark Richt Little Goody Two-Shoes did here and not just on special teams where in his trophy for everyone, he played his walk-ons who were # 100 special teams each year now for us. Speaking of Mark Richt Mr. Charlie Brown of college football, I see he has kicked-off 3 starters already for this season. He felt that THAT was the way to handle discipline to harshly PUNISH but NOT to tell the players to obey the rules such as NOT TAKING free rental cars ON HIS WATCH THIS CALENDAR YEAR.
Kirby will NOT put-up a 54 % win percentage against teams who went on and played in a bowl game the season Kirby plays them as Mark Richt did his last entire 8 years here.
Further, I had predicted that Kirby would OUT-RECRUIT Mark Richt despite Mark Richt taking THAT JOB THERE December 2nd long before Kirby got here January 12 and DESPITE the fact that Florida has a significantly bigger better recruiting base than Georgia. To that end, Kirby had the # 7 recruiting class then added a lot MORE after signing day while Mark Richt ranked the # 39 recruiting class at Miami of Florida according to Scout.com. I don’t care what he does down there because he so screwed-up our program here for his last entire 8 years.
You will find no bumper stickers on my Camry XLE or my Tacoma for Miami of Florida.
Luck is what you make for yourself, so I don’t wish Mark Richt any bad luck – I just don’t care either way what he does down there playing in the All Cupcake Conference ACC which is a 2-team conference and has been – not a 6 or even 7-team SEC Conference. I had offered to Mark Richt that I personally would hire the moving truck and personally move each of his possessions safely to wherever he wanted to go if he would leave. He chose with the over $ 50 million dollars we paid him to coach here not lead the boys to Jesus in VIOLATION of the U.S. Constitution at a state-sponsored school not to take me up on that. Therefore we had to FIRE him. He then told Aaron Murray that he was “QUITE disappointed” that he was FIRED.
Mark Richt felt that he was judged on something OTHER THAN BESIDES winning and losing. He was NOT.
I hardly think much can be expected of Kirby’s defense this season but then again Mark Richt NEVER had a good defense here.
Mark Richt left Kirby according to Phil Steele the # 93 experienced team 2016 with a 2-Deep of ONLY 2 seniors and 6 juniors.
Kirby is fixing that too. He is fixing this by playing TRUE FRESHMEN, not sitting them down like this is now today prior to 1968 when freshmen were allowed to play.
It would be especially bad for Kirby and Jacob Eason if they went out and lost to an unranked team time of game or for the season ANY YEAR like Mark Richt did EVERY YEAR and sometimes twice. Mark Richt lost to 12 unranked teams in his last 8 years either time of game or for season.
Another prediction I have for Kirby and Jacob Eason is that they TOO break from the past and do something against their NEXT 24 top 15 games. Right now that is Ole Miss and the vols with Florida just outside that and North Carolina as well just outside that top 15. Auburn is not too far down that top 15 list right now either. Mark Richt was # 45 nationally his latest 8 years here at 18 losses his last 24 games vs top 15 teams time of game. I therefore GUARANTEE Kirby as well will NOT be 75 % LOSSES as Mark Richt after 2007 against Top 15 teams.
I did NOT want Mark Richt gone fired – not for the 2001-2007 time period and was a staunch supporter of his until then; but I will NOT support any coach with the record that Mark Richt put up after kick-off game 5 of 2008 when he was 76-19 winning percentage of 80 percent EXACTLY, of just only 68 % thereafter. THIS INCLUDES ESPECIALLY KIRBY.
When you win 4 of every 5 games for the period until kick-off game 5 of 2008 and then thereafter for 8 horrible unacceptable seasons win only 3 of every 4 games, do NOT expect that I will support ANY such lousy coach here at The University of Georgia. For I will not. I shall not. Kirby will be 80 % win percentage here for his career and Mark Richt should have been as well, not 73 % made-up of VERY GOOD 80% until kick-off game 5 of 2008 and ONLY 68% since.
I expect Kirby to NOT get BLOWN-OUT as Mark Richt did 7 times after 2007 by MORE than 3 Touchdowns his last 8 years either. I predict and guarantee he WILL NOT.
I expect Kirby to NOT make the in-game decisions like Mark Richt did, call poorly his timeouts as Mark Richt nor to WASTE his TALENT as Mark Richt in personnel decisions. I predict Kirby out-performs Mark Richt right down the line, completely and utterly in EVERY conceivable fashion. I would not have suggested while Mark Richt was here that Kirby among others I specifically listed should be hired and Mark Richt fired if I felt I would be sitting here this morning telling you Mark Richt was our best coach ever and Kirby as an unproven coach might go 8-4 as you have predicted.
Kirby will ALWAYS be 80 % win percentage every year here at UGA.
26 seasons The Georgia Bulldogs # 11 all-time in wins won 80% of our games.
Mark Richt had 11 which were NOT.
3 out of every 4 seasons, 11 in total Mark Richt did NOT hit the 80 % win mark. That’s UNACCEPTABLE.
Kirby will be FAR BETTER than THAT.
I’m so glad. I’m glad. I’m glad. I’m glad that this is QUITE an UPGRADE for us.
Despite you wanting to hold us back.
And to you Mark Richt :
Mark Richt, sir, God expects us to take an active part.
This is why we find so many vigorous words and phrases in Scripture, such as “make every effort”, “strain”, “struggle”, “pursue”, “run with diligence the race set before you”, “fight the good fight”, “persist”, “resist”, “stand”, “take hold”, “guard”, “endure to the end”, etc. If everything is preordained, what would be the use of all this strenuous effort?
Pray to God that we win ?
Say that whatever happens in wins and losses here at Georgia you are COMFORTABLE with because of your walk with Jesus is how YOU MEASURE YOURSELF. That it would be a disaster if you were INSTEAD judged on wins and losses ? That you are comfortable with your walk with Jesus and know that is what really matters when we paid you $ 50 million dollars to win here.
That crap is OVER.
He’s gone and I accomplished what I wanted to accomplish with the FIRED guy you KEEP bragging on he as a fine man. I further WILL accomplish these goals for Kirby and what your goals are for Mark Richt as a Miami of Florida fan, I could give a shit.
Of course YOU would NEVER state that THIS last URL Link is unacceptable for Mark Richt. Sure it was.
And it is GREAT he is gone.
Long live Kirby ! Now if Kirby is NOT the answer I will TELL YOU THAT. I guarantee. I listed Kirby among a small group of possible replacements for Mark Richt and he was the ONLY one of my list who was not a PROVEN HEAD COACH. Right now I am so glad that Mark Richt is gone that I am HAPPY to have Kirby here instead and to have Kirby choose Jacob Eason as our Starting QB. I can tell you this if Kirby is JUST MORE OF THE SAME then Kirby is NOT going to have my support.
I have EXPECTATIONS for this football program and what we’ve been the last 8 years is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
Quit telling us all how great Mark Richt is. We aren’t interested and DO NOT ANY OF US BELIEVE IT. Get over your love of Mark Richt and get the HELL back here and report on our program.
It seems to me that we have MORE THAN ENOUGH to report on with Fall Practice in its second week now including that Kirby may have to make his decision at QB now that the entire Spring and now first week and half are over of Fall Practice. Then there is Maurice Smith whom Kirby said he would release him if he were here because he graduated Saturday. Kirby WOULD let him go to Alabama. That’s the last point Nick Saban wanted in the storm of bad press.
No one gives a shit about Mark Richt. Nor your one-sided VIEW of what he did when we ALL know he LOST IT and was not able to perform because he did not care to try to his last 8 years for which ALL OF US fired his sorry ass.
You are full of shit Chipper Towers as EVERYONE told you.
Now get your ass back up here and REPORT ON US !
@Shcyphers : “Why are you writing about Mark Richt Chipper Towers AJ-C ? He’s GONE and thank God it FINALLY happened.”
@Dawg_Fan1972 : “Why are you still talking about Mark Richt Chipper Towers AJ-C ? Luckily he has no more relevance to UGA football anymore. Good riddance to bad rubbish.”
For the last 8 years Chipper Towers AJ-C aka Mark Richt Apologist Mark Richt AVERAGED 4-LOSSES a year, LOST 18 of 24 games vs top 15 teams time of game # 45 nationally at that with # 7 Average Scout.com Recruiting Rankings for # 11 All-Time Wins’ Program The University of Georgia and was NOT RANKED HALF THE TIME in the Final AP Poll these same exact last 8 years of misery for UGA Bulldogs’ fans.
Mark Richt lost to 12 unranked teams time of game or for season and got the ever-living shit kicked out of him 7 times by more than 3 TD his last 8 years on the NATIONAL STAGE. He LOST IT, didn’t he ?
Nice guy sure but NOT what we paid him $ 50 million dollars to do here his last 8 years of which he had 4 losses a season and # 45 at beating top 15 teams at 18 of 24 lost and certainly NOT ACCEPTABLE with the # 7 recruiting.
GET THAT THIS TIME Chipper Towers AJ-C ? I presume NOT. What he did 2001-2007 is NOT what we FIRED HIM FOR but for his last 8 years. Try addressing yourself to THAT and get the HELL out of Miami as no one gives a shit about Mark Richt anymore.
Get with THE Program. Report on Jacob Eason getting shoulder massaged and throwing on sidelines if there is anything there. THIS is why AJ-C had to HIRE Seth Emerson to in effect REPLACE you since you are wholly incapable of following OUR TEAM.
With a sore throwing shoulder Jacob Eason will not be able to get the reps he needs to be our QB. Did he get his shoulder massaged or not ? We knew he left drills and threw on sideline not that you told us that either while 3 other writers did for NOTABLY the Athens-Banner Herald, other AJ-C DawgNation writers and Macon.com.
You have NOT WRITTEN A GOD DAMN WORD ABOUT THAT Chipper Towers AJ-C, son.
Everyone ELSE has. Where have you been ? What the freaking hell are you doing bragging on Mark Richt 8 months and 2 weeks after I FIRED HIM ? How did that go trying to SHUT ME UP about that Chipper Towers AJ-C ?
Well punk ?
Do you remember me telling you what Mark Richt’s record against teams who went to a bowl game the year he played them became after 2007, what his record against top 15 time of game is after 2007, what his record away from Sanford was against ranked teams after 2007, what his losses were to unranked teams time of game or for season after 2007, what his ranking was AFTER when at kick-off of game 5 of 2008 he was exactly 80% win percentage winning 3 then losing 1 when AFTER THAT HE DAMN WELL LOST IT and was only win 2 lose 1 at 68% ONLY ?
Any of this conversation I INSISTED you have with me on the line with you and your boss that day Chip Towers coming back to you as to why you removed my posts from your God Damn friq’d-up blog ? You know ? YOUR BOSS WHO HIRED Seth Emerson AFTER THAT CONVERSATION where I by God made MY POINT ? Coming back to you Chip Towers ? Remember I MADE YOU PUT HIM ON THE PHONE WITH ME ? Well do you punk ?
How did that go YOU IN CHARGE OF YOUR BLOG that I could NOT have my say that Mark Richt HAD TO BE FIRED ?
How that go Chip Towers trying to shut me up son ?
Go ahead you can say it. I WON. You lost. You ALSO were WRONG and proven wrong by me weren’t you Chipper Towers AJ-C ? Your view of Mark Richt has been skewed and NOT MAINSTREAM Bulldogs’ thoughts on the matter at ALL for all the time after 2007. Weren’t they ? Aren’t they 8 months and 2 weeks after you were PROVEN WRONG ?
You are and remain a Mark Richt Apologist. It ultimately will COST you your damn job boy. Get with The Program. Hello. Wake up. You were and remain WRONG.
I believe I made my point to you and your boss and that you have been proven wrong Chip Towers AJ-C DawgNation.
You’ve been full of shit your whole God Damn Life Chip Towers and being down there 8 months and 2 weeks after I was PROVEN CORRECT and you PROVEN INCORRECT to tell us how great Mark Richt is and how he does NOT deserve to be criticized for his last 8 years of excruciating 4 losses a year with # 7 talent is just more of the same dumbass.
What do you TELL YOURSELF waking-up 700 miles South bragging on Mark Richt and telling us we should not be dissatisfied with him when we have a new coach trying to decide on a sore-armed QB or not. Or the one Mark Richt left him with # 119 on Third Downs and # 104 Passing Offense with 7 fumbles and only 12 TD with his best win over 2-6 in The SEC Auburn ?
You think anyone believes YOU or ME Chip Towers ?
You told me and then I made you tell your boss with me on the line that YOU SAID THEN that it was UNWARRANTED.
No it was most certainly NOT and remains NOT dumb shit. You should have NEVER connected me with you and your boss. And you shouldn’t be in Miami NOW trying to STILL MAINTAIN the same bullshit. You’ve been PROVEN WRONG. Get over it.
And I damn sure KNOW in my heart of hearts that you LIED AGAIN this morning saying you WOULD NEVER TALK ABOUT MARK RICHT EVER AGAIN.
Sure you will.
YOU lied THEN about Mark Richt and you are STILL LYING NOW to try to be a Mark Richt Apologist and to kowtow to THEIR wishes NOW as THEN Chip Towers. Your inclusion of your discussion that 1 person said he was NOW a Miami of Florida fan proves it. And you said he was a huge Bulldogs’ fan. Now he isn’t.
He and YOU are BOTH God Damn Mark Richt Apologists.
I am NOT a Miami of Florida fan. I never have been and NEVER WILL BE. I am proud of my alma mater UGA. I do not give a rats’ ass about Mark Richt because I turned on the son of bitch for LOSING and making a joke of winning football games after kick-off of game 5 of 2008.
I quit believing in Mark Richt and became convinced he had to go. You just did not want to hear it.
Hear it again !
With Kirby we have an opportunity to finally have a coach who cares about WINNING !
Kirby will NOT lose 2 win 1 the next 8 years.
Kirby will NOT go a damned entire frigin’ God Damn piss ant decade no SEC championship.
Kirby will NOT WASTE talent.
Kirby will NOT screw-up games with clock management, other in-game decisions, pre-game and in-game MOTIVATION of his recruits and wrong choices across the board and especially at QB. Kirby has proven he wants DEPTH at QB in recruiting and going after those Mark Richt purposely did not recruit such as Cam Newton and Deshaun Watson. Kirby is doing a fine job of actually develop Quarterbacks here and talking about dual-threat QB in general and how important THEY ALL ARE as QB for him. Nick Marshall comes to mind and probably Jacob Park as well.
Kirby will NOT lose to 18 of the next 24 top 15 teams.
Kirby will NOT be unranked in the Final AP Poll half the next 8 years.
Kirby will NOT get beat by more than 3 TD 7 times the next 8 years.
Kirby will NOT lose to 12 unranked teams time of game or for season the next 8 years.
Kirby will NOT average # 7 Scout.com recruiting rank and average 4 losses the next 8 years EITHER.
Kirby will NOT say that there’s something besides WINNING that’s important HERE at Georgia.
You just did not want to believe it then and still do NOT today.
“There’s something here at Georgia besides winning that’s important,” Mark Richt repeatedly told us on YOUR BLOG Chip Towers.
Not to ME asshole !
You STILL MAINTAIN that mantra. I am sorry but I did NOT get that meme ever and know that he and YOU BOTH only said it once his LOSING began after he LOST IT after kick-off game 5 of 2008.
You have maintained this bullshit for the duration of time Chip Towers and so today you say it AGAIN between the lines that he is a nice guy and doesn’t deserve it. Sure he does deserve all the backlash for GIVING-UP. He LOST IT and only you and a handful of a very vocal minority of your Mark Richt Apologists really think I want to be a Miami of Florida fan or that my $ 50 million we paid him is just fine with what he did once he LOST IT.
You can stick it up your God Damned Asshole.
You’re just one of those pussies who think now 8 years later plus an additional 8 months and 2 weeks that you can TRY to tell me to shut-up about a nice guy and that you can add BACK in what he did 2001-2007 when I was the ardent fan of Mark Richt on the Internet as EVERYONE will be only too willing to tell you part of that time of which YOU WERE NOT EVEN HERE Chip Towers.
Ask the other writers who WERE here when we WERE winning before you, he, and the Mark Richt Apologists starting coming-up with your daily excuses that what he did 2001-2007 MUST be ADDED-IN to what he WAS NO LONGER doing after kick-off game 5 of 2008.
I turned on him.
I no longer believed in him because HE quit trying to win. He really DID think and really STILL DOES think that there’s something besides winning that’s important.
You and HE and the Mark Richt Apologists found out that I was RIGHT that that is NOT TRUE.
If you want to build-up the Miami of Florida program, then stay DOWN THERE 700 miles South. See if I care.
Because when The SEC was down, he was fine – but when it wasn’t, he wasn’t.
Was he ?
Even with the cupcake schedules of the ACC Miami of Florida is going to expect him to beat the top 15 teams and NOT LOSER EVERY YEAR to the UNRANKED teams. When he doesn’t and he won’t your article TODAY will stand-out just as wrong TODAY about him as you were when you made excuses for him after kick-off Game 5 of 2008 Chip Towers.
Maybe you can add-in 2001-2007 to what he is doing down there and ATTEMPT to leave-off everything after kick-off game 5 of 2008 here Chipper Towers.
And tell us all how there’s something BESIDES winning that SHOULD BE important.
Because adding back-in 2001-2007, when I most assuredly by ALL ACCOUNTS wanted Mark Richt to be MY COACH HERE, as you have done this morning AGAIN Chip Towers just points out again how you TAKE YOUR EYE OFF THE BALL Chip Towers.
Try one time to say what he did after kick-off Game 5 of 2008 that had me and the REST OF THE KNOWN WORLD to turn on Mark Richt other than for you to say today now as an EXCUSE that The SEC was NOT DOWN after kick-off Game 5 of 2008 as it was prior.
Maybe one day if you CENSOR such responses to your blog and lambaste those who do, you can ATTEMPT to change the majority opinion nationally that Mark Richt HAD LOST IT after kick-off game 5 of 2008.
And that there as here for the last entire 8 years after he LOST IT, that he will continue to LOSE to top 15 teams and LOSE to UNRANKED TEAMS in ADDITION every year.
Because that damn sure is exactly what he did here for his last entire 8 years of mediocrity leading Todd Gurley II to say that he was tired and losing and being mediocre here at Georgia under Mark Richt.
What did you go to Mark Richt’s God Damn Church here or something Chipper Towers AJ-C DawgNation ?
There’s something here at Georgia besides winning that’s important Chipper Towers ?
I think NOT.
He’s a dumbass who makes dumbass decisions every time he turns around because his goals are NOT MINE. And you’re a dumbass to try to make EXCUSES for him 8 and half months after I FIRED him when you told me that he wasn’t going anywhere and would be here right now today coaching this team with more of his dumbass decisions and you there to have his God Damn Back.
You told me it was unwarranted that I wrote he HAD TO BE FIRED.
Now you tell me that it is unwarranted that any empirical evidence be used against him for his last entire freaking God Damn 8 years of total mediocrity despite # 7 average recruiting rankings.
The bottom line on Mark Richt is and was that he is a stupid guy.
They can not count. But they got the names right. That is a START UGA. I guess when you take our money to be STUDENTS or write checks to coaches, you can get their names right anyway. I have been trying to tell them their names are WRONG for days now. They are still wrong. Use my list here not UGA.edu
And I demanded UGA write something that is CORRECT about who UGA sent to the Olympics. Finally today they have replied to me with this updated list.
I guess when I kept telling UGA that it SHOULD BE A SOURCE OF PRIDE and that MY LIST here is more complete than that provided by UGA to http://www.sec.com that they FINALLY capitulated and did a more accurate list of names anyway than previously done by UGA prior to the Olympics.
They probably updated it from their expense reports turned-in REPRESENTING The University of Georgia is my guess. I have been linking to UGA about this list to GET IT CORRECT at our own Official UGA WebPages and that which we TURNED-IN to http://www.secsports.com and one guy who plagiarized his list from http://www.secsports.com without URL Link provided to you of it.

The University of Georgia UGA Bulldogs will be represented by 48 current or former students athletes coaches and staff in the Rio Games 2016 Summer Olympics.
Track and field at the Paralympics will start on Sept. 7.
I am PROUD of them representing The University of Georgia 100 % Bulldogs at Rio which is why I invest the time in my hobby of researching who it is who is representing us in the 2016 Summer Olympics. You leave-off whomever you want to leave-off some list you copied from somewhere else. Me ? I researched every name both on our own Official WebPages at UGA my alma mater AND other WebPages Official sites for the Olympics.
UGA has no one involved in men’s or women’s basketball in Rio nor any men’s or women’s football players. There is no baseball cricket or football as we know it in Rio. Moe Brian of St. Simons Island Georgia is on the women’s football soccer team but she played for Virginia not UGA.
That is the best I can do for you. I get 48. I cannot explain why I get a more complete list than everyone else.
I tried to find the list and could NOT as you can see find a complete list. So I wrote one myself.
I am PROUD of them representing The University of Georgia 100 % Bulldogs at Rio which is why I invest the time in my hobby of researching who it is who is representing us in the 2016 Summer Olympics.
10.71 in 100-meter dash World Record Jarryd Wallace
pic jpeg Jarryd Wallace – if he is not an inspiration to you I have no idea what might be. I am so proud of Jarryd Wallace. I am moved by knowing about him. Proud to call him mine. Mine !
Here is list no one else can be bothered to give you of 48 UGA University of Georgia Bulldogs students athletes coaches or staff who have braved to go to Rio Summer Olympics 2016 which includes 2 Paralympics and all 48 trust me represent The University of Georgia in so doing. I am proud as hell of these 48 representing MY alma mater.
Whom of the 48 while they here at The University of Georgia did NOT dream of being at The Summer Olympics 2016 ?
August 3 to August 21 in Rio de Janeiro Brazil 2016 Summer Olympics
“It’s nearly impossible to control your emotions here. When you have the Olympics on the line, it’s hard to stay calm. This is so cool. It’s an awesome feeling. I still can’t believe it. Honestly, I’m in shock right now.” University of Georgia’s Olivia Smoliga
Jim Harbaugh 68-30 college coach. He wasn’t any good as a QB himself either with as many interceptions as TD just a .77 QB rating with one and a half fumbles or interceptions to TD passes.
In 14 NFL seasons he won all of 4 games after the regular season – just AWFUL. Thousands upon thousands upon thousands are better than that.
And he has a bad heart known condition for which he had an operation already. He has a DUI arrest as well.
So 68-30 and we just FIRED our coach for being 73-32 last 8 years here at Georgia.
Jim Harbaugh is great ?
Michigan has not won the conference in a dozen years and is # 37 in the nation in won/lost record after 2004 as well.
So Jim Harbaugh comes down here to The South to recruit players who DO NOT KNOW ALL THIS and bring them back up there in the COLD FROZEN TUNDRA where in Ann Arbor it is 15 degrees when it is 70 degrees here
so they can brag to BURNED-OUT Detroit where NO ONE WANTS TO LIVE ANY MORE that they just signed 2 of the Top Defensive Players in the state of Georgia.
Go on guys Aubrey Solomon 2017 and Otis Reese 2018. Go on up there.
He nor Michigan is doing shit and it’s COLD as you MIGHT GUESS driving 1000 miles one-way due NORTH on I-75.
Michigan QUIT playing football two and a half decades ago and has NOT been a damn thing since. Go. If you can’t tell that Georgia is BETTER than that you deserve to be that MISERABLE.
Aubrey Solomon 2017 and Otis Reese 2018 you are dumbasses – both of you.
We’re in a LOT better position this morning than we would’ve been if all you whiners had had your way – and him still here. Your pulling and tugging in the opposite direction cements it in everyone’s mind that you never cared about this program in the first place.
How ironic that you said we ALL were pulling and tugging in the opposite direction calling it like it is with his LOSING for his last entire 8 years here.
Now here you are out in force and have been 11 weeks now tomorrow morning doing EXACTLY the same.
2 points :
(1) We ALL figured we WERE pulling and tugging in the RIGHT direction to want him gone
(2) We ALL figure we ARE STILL pulling and tugging in the RIGHT direction to tell you how full of shit you were and ARE trying to say even NOW 11 weeks tomorrow harping-on STILL his record 2001-2015 when he was NOT FIRED for THAT but what he did his last entire 8 years.
One day you will wake-up and see how you have made a horse’s ass out of yourself not only for his entire last 8 years of your EXCUSES and being satisfied and SETTLING for all that LOSING, but in addition now for 11 weeks tomorrow morning whining about what he did ostensibly from 2001 to 2007 and NOTHING ELSE.
He has been quite clear that we do not have enough quality depth. If you play your true freshmen you are building quality depth. 4 will be Starters. This all will be a big plus between now and February 3 Signing Date to get some more in here – that they too can earn immediate playing time and even start game 1. This establishes a precedent for his recruiting by doing this. He will be able to say : See ?
Did anyone notice that the SAME VERY PUSSIES who said his predecessor would STILL BE HERE are the very ones NOW today who are saying that he can NOT start Jake Eason game 1 that heaven forbid in The SEC Freshmen make mistakes and sophomores have sophomore jinxes ?
And the SAME PUSSIES then and now are also saying that he must win a national championship – did you notice that ?
Or did these anomalies escape you until I pointed it out ?
Why if they were so satisfied and still are does Coach Kirby Smart have to win a national championship ?
These very same pussies dragged our program down and put a fissure best they could in our Great Bulldogs’ Nation trying poorly to shut us up and tell us be afraid you might get what you want. You are not as good a fan of this program as they they told you every time you expressed that 8 years of unsatisfactory results was too long. Might end up like the vols they came back when you dared to speak-up not all dads wanted their sons to play for such a LOSER. His recruiting is so great they said. If he goes we lose Jake Eason.
Do you even remember what they said ?
What they CONTINUE 7 weeks’ later to say on their approved blogs amongst themselves ?
Doesn’t it make you sick they STILL FEEL that they can ram this shit down our throats that indeed they are not wanting to even be involved with our program ANY LONGER NOW TODAY they BRAG in PUBLIC ?
Remember every time you thought that he needed some criticism that they banded together to do their personal attack – not discuss your point ?
Remember this ?
They have not changed.
Can a leopard change its spots?
Neither can they do good now all of a sudden who have so accustomed all of us during his last 8 years here to their excuses and lies and settling for mediocre results and personal attacks – pussies.
Coach Kirby Smart has to do what he could not they surmise. No, all he has to do is to do better than his predecessor’s last 8 years. Nothing else.
Which is a low bar set his last 8 years.
But he was this or that over 15 years. He wasn’t fired for what he did his 1st 7 years, was he ?
Coach Kirby Smart will surpass him easily.
Any seasoned head coach would’ve.
They compare one defensive coordinator with the next, one offensive coordinator with the next, but him good Lord knows they will hold Coach Kirby Smart to a HIGHER standard than that put up by his predecessor his last 8 years.
It was after all his last 8 years he was fired for, wasn’t it ?
You did not want him fired in year 7 here did you ?
But you did for what he did after his 1st 7 years, didn’t you ?
Well you would NOT throw her out of bed and you would NOT sit her on the sidelines while older lesser talented players instead played in a THROW-AWAY YEAR which I say Kirby Smart can NOT do to us AGAIN 2016 as we’ve had done unto us after 2007 around here.
(1) Who is Georgia – what have we accomplished – why have expectations?
(2) Who is Mark Richt – what has he really done after 2007 ?
Why did Georgia Bulldog coach Mark Richt quit ?
He did NOT quit. He was FIRED.
This blog for 8 long years told you why he had to and guaranteed that he WOULD QUIT. In fact, this blog ALSO stated the date he would quit – right after the Georgie tek game 2015 where he looked like crap AGAIN !
He was given no choice. We had offered the job to Coach Kirby Smart and Mark Richt was being fired for averaging 4 LOSSES a season for 8 years now. After 2007.
He also was # 40 in Win Percentage vs the Top 15 after 2007. For # 11 All-Time Wins’ UGA.
Run out of town on a rail.
Who are we ? What have we accomplished ? Why should we expect more than averaging 4 losses per season over the most-recent 8-year period ?
Sports Illustrated Zac Ellis :
” I used to consider Texas the best job in the country, but now I think it’s Georgia, followed by Ohio State. Why Georgia? My top criterion is access to players relative to competitors, and Georgia is in a really enviable position. In the past five recruiting classes, an average of 113.6 high-schoolers from the state of Georgia have signed with Power Five schools each year. (Note that we’re talking Power Five, not all of the FBS.) That number is third behind Texas (179.4) and Florida (164.4) and ahead of California (100.4). The competition between state schools in those states is far more intense than it is in Georgia. With Georgia Tech running the option, the schools aren’t really going head-to-head on offensive players because of different needs, and Georgia is the bigger brand name. It’s also in the conference that more recruits consider desirable. In Georgia, they grow up wanting to be Bulldogs. The state of Ohio produced 64.6 Power Five signees a year over that same five-year period.”
“Do Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Tennessee, South Carolina and others come in and poach Georgia talent? Absolutely. But there’s such an abundance of it in the state that Georgia can afford to lose a few top in-state targets and still field a team capable of competing for SEC and national titles. Alabama and Auburn have to invade Georgia. During that five-year period, their state produced 36.4 Power Five signees a year. People talk about LSU’s monopoly in its state, but the numbers between Louisiana and Georgia aren’t even close. Louisiana’s average number of Power Five signees during that span was 38.6 a year.”
“Add to this great facilities (now that the Bulldogs are building an indoor), great tradition…possibly the best college town in America and the fact that they play in the easier division of the nation’s deepest conference. That’s the recipe for a great job that just about every coach in America would crawl over broken glass to take.”
“I know no school president or athletic director will ever say it out loud, but coaches almost always get fired because of their win-loss record—not because they didn’t mold enough men.”
ESPN Alex Scarborough: “Let’s be clear, they’re both great jobs. If LSU and Georgia are open, the line of candidates will stretch as far as the eye can see. But for me, the question of which job is more appealing is easy. It’s Georgia, and I don’t think it’s close. The support is there from fans and administration. You’re recruiting in a state that produces the most SEC players of any in the country. And you don’t have to bother with the West.”
ESPN Edward Aschoff: “To me, Georgia would be the better job. It’s in the heart of one of the Southeast’s most fertile recruiting grounds. Atlanta is right down the road, and the facilities are only getting better. It’s also in the East, which has barely registered a pulse recently, so any rebuilding project shouldn’t take too long. And you don’t have to play Alabama every year. But don’t get it twisted, LSU is a great job. Louisiana doesn’t have the talent pool that Georgia has on a continuous basis, but you can pluck plenty of elite-level prospects out of your backyard However, you have to compete in the SEC West !”
10-Win Seasons before Mark Richt – twelve (12) but those are ALL 80% win % or more.
Winning Percentage Season of 80 % or better before Mark Richt
22 Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Seasons before Mark Richt of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher
4 Mark Richt Seasons of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher
26 Seasons of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher of which Mark Richt has 4 – eleven NOT.
These then are Mark Richt’s Best 4 Seasons :
2002 when he lost to Florida unranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25 even with their win over us when he went 0-13 on 3rd Down Conversions relegating him to play 5-loss unranked Arky SEC Championship Game and 5-loss FSU # 23 in the bowl game nobody cared about and nobody watched.
2004 when he lost to a hapless Phillip Fulmer vols’ team who should have lost 4 games that 2004 season and he got blown-out by Auburn by 3 TD without extra points 6-24; therefore he did not even get to play for The SEC Championship. For this, he played in the Outback Bowl nobody watched and nobody cared about at 11 am.
2007 when he lost to 6-6 South Carolina who did not even play in a bowl game. And, he lost – blown-out by the vols 14-35 by 3 TD. The vols should’ve been a 5-loss team. For these performances, he was awarded the booby prize of beating # 19 Hawai’i in the bowl game nobody watched and nobody cared about.
2012 when he lost – blown-out by South Carolina 7-35. A 4 TD beat-down. And, then he 3 times in front of me told Aaron Murray No, No, No, do not spike it – that Mark Richt said he was certain that Nick Saban would not expect an Aaron Murray pass, which was batted down at the line of scrimmage with all receivers covered. For these performances he was awarded 4-loss Nebraska # 25 AP Poll in the CapitalOne Bowl which nobody watched and nobody cared about.
Note please, that of these 4 best Mark Richt seasons only 2012 is after 2007 and that year he had 2 really really really bad coaching decisions – not preparing the team to be ready-to-play against South Carolina beat by more than 3 TD for 7 times after 2007 and this 1 of them ! And, then his disagreement 3 times with Aaron Murray that Aaron Murray wanted to spike it and Mark Richt 3 times over-ruled Aaron Murray when Aaron Murray CLEARLY DECISIVELY was correct and Mark Richt just wrong.
These are his 4 “best” seasons and the bowl games he earned for us compared to the 15 Bowl Games on the National Stage by The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program, many of which we Won and 6 of those named # 1 by this poll or that poll.
“Athens is an all time great college town, and its women can be put up against anyone’s and come out looking good. People who go to college in the northeast really have no idea what they are missing when it comes to the ladies.”

Notable Party Reputation Accomplishments: Princeton Review Party School (2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2002), Newsweek Party School (2012), Playboy Party School (2012, 2011, 2009, 2006, 2002), Football School Factor
Notable Campus-wide Parties: Football Saturdays, Greek Life
“The scene here in Athens is something that has to be experienced to be believed. If you’re over on Milledge Ave (Frat Row) on any given weekend night, you’ll hear bands and big time rap names blasting over the screams of some of the finest Southern Belles. But the main attraction to UGA is the downtown scene; it is absolutely unreal. Thursdays find wild outfits from socials running around, and every other night it seems like the entire student body is out raging in their Sunday best. Athens is where The South’s finest go to raise a little hell.”
“To put it simply, Athens is insane. Every single night of the week, you can go downtown and find people drinking and partying. Whether it be Sunday nights at Pauley’s or Thursdays at Whiskey Bent, there will never be a shortage of attractive Southern men and women downtown to meet. The Greek scene tends to dominate the party scene, with socials every Thursday and band parties nearly every weekend. However, one does not have to be Greek to go downtown and have a great time. Getting into bars downtown is a joke as well, so being a freshman does not mean you can’t join in the fun. Downtown Athens has 20+ bars where you can drink as much as you want. This is also a great school for guys, where the student body is comprised of nearly 60% women in a school of 32,000+. Saturdays in Athens on Gameday are also one of the big parts of the insanity. Typically, people wake up and start drinking and tailgating all day until the game starts. Athens is literally shut down so everyone can party and watch the game.”
“The music scene in Athens is also a big part of what makes UGA a great party school. With the Georgia Theater attracting big names on a weekly basis to huge country concerts in Sanford and out in the field, there will always be somewhere to listen to music and drink. Athens, GA is the best college town in the United States.”
We raise a little Cain, now and again.

# 2 Forbes’ Magazine Most Revenue nationally from our football team
Look up please here at this URL Link the OTHER FOOTBALL PROGRAMS who are considered the Top Football Programs and see how far down they are as a University ! These other top football programs really almost all of them are way worse as a school. We are going to recruit more of the Elite Talent here at Georgia after Mark Richt leaves. And, why is that ? Because one, we are a great University AND we have a great Football Program ! And, because two, the top players do NOT want to play for a Charlie Brown who really only beats the cupcakes and who struggles against EVERYONE else. This is the Major Point of this blog, whatever part of it you read.
Now that we’ve established who we are at Georgia, let’s study exactly coldly precisely whom it is Mark Richt has run his record up on, and why he has been considered by everyone as a coach who – just has lost it after 2007. Is it ok if we do this please ? This blog here does not have the 250 top analysts in college football today who have TOLD YOU he has to go for those would make this blog post too long. They are found on the right side of this blog as you read it in the 250 CATEGORIES where you can see in the 250 CATEGORIES on the right just who said what in their own words with the URL Link in each CATEGORY so you can just click it and see exactly that they ALL think he just has to go. Or, shall we just simply say he is a nice guy and leave it at that ?
72-32 beats powder-puff teams, averaging 4-loss season after 2007.
His religion has given him different goals from our own.
His roster mismanagement after 2007 has clearly been because of a goal other than winning, and his failures at his main position of QB are that he came here as a QB coach yet has failed to develop them. I think he spends too much time not directly doing his job. In fact, I know that has to be the issue because he tells us winning is not important to him and he’d be SATISFIED with whatever happens here in winning at Georgia. It’s not how he’s JUDGED he says !
# 88 Passing Offense 2014 with Mike Bobo
# 104 Passing Offense 2015 with Brian Schottenheimer
You saw something different against # 64 Georgia Southern in the last game than I ?
“We knew. I’m telling you,” Mark Richt said of Georgia Southern. “Everybody was like, ‘well coach is just saying this and that to try and get his boys ready to play,’ but we, especially our defensive staff, could see how well this offense executed. Just knowing what it takes to prepare for an offense like that. It keeps you up at night. Well-coached team. A team that knows how to win. They played their tails off.”
‘ I don’t think we’ve gotta create motivation. I think we’ve gotta temper it’ “head coach Mark Richt said on his radio show Monday night ” before Alabama kick-off this season – blown-out 10-38 more than 3 TD as he’s done 7 times after 2007 and did not once prior, because the team showed-up again not-ready-play ! Told players all week prior to Alabama THIS – that it’s HIS JOB to DE-MOTIVATE them, then they showed-up not-ready-play which the # 1 Athlete in the nation he invited to the game as Our Recruiting Guest told you after the game that his impressions were that Mark Richt did NOT bring his players to the game ready-to-play. It’s written between the lines in this blog post that these items herein listed make it patently clear that Mark Richt does NOT know how to coach a football team, or that if he does, he has FAILED to do so – often because he has a completely different set of goals from our own for our Proud UGA Football Program ! Did you get that please ?
Mark Richt says : “You can’t become what you do. What I do is not who I am. If I become what I do and I become just a football coach, then you’re asking for disaster. My identity is in Christ. I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ. I know that he died for my sin and I am going to heaven when this is all said and done, forever. That gives me peace, no matter what happens here.”
“All the time y’all probably thought I was being coy but I really really didn’t know. Even on this decision – very very close decision to name the Starter. I think they all can get us in the right plays; all can get us in the right protections; I think they all can function extremely well and help us win. That is what made it tough. I can not tell you how many times it went back-and-forth quite frankly. It was very close. It really has been a tough decision because they all are extremely hard workers; all smart; all capable; all talented. It was a battle that didn’t define itself; no one really pulled away.”
5-2 before the game 8 with Faton Bauta -0- snaps at QB. None all season ! Then, left him in every snap not 1 running play for him – running QB – 4 interceptions. DESPERATE !
“Teams are trying to stack the box against us Malcolm Mitchell said. Vanderbilt stacked the box and we didn’t pass the ball and you saw what happened. Until we get comfortable throwing the ball I hope our defense shows up.”
“I think Coach Brian Schottenheimer is a great coach. I think he knows what he’s doing. I think he knows how to coach QBs extremely well. I’ve got a lot of faith in that.” Mark Richt head coach who calls ALL the shots on Offense and always has – and none on Defense and never has.
David Greene says : “Here we are in November and we still don’t know which direction they’re going in. It’s tough to be this deep in the season really without any identity offensively. Unfortunately it’s not just one thing. Offensively right now it’s very stale. Special teams has really struggled. There’s a lot of talent on the team but sometimes the players just aren’t making plays. As an entire team they just kind of seem lost…like they just don’t know what they want to do and how they want to do it. A good example of that is starting FatonBauta when he has zero starting experience. It just goes to show that what they’ve been trying to do just isn’t working.”
He was BLOWN-OUT embarrassed in 2 of those losses and the 3rd loss was to the yellowjackets averaging the # 52 Scout.com recruiting ranking !
“I don’t think much about it. I think the Lord is in charge of everything. So, I don’t think much about it.” Mark Richt
This is NOT your Calling Mark Richt. The SEC is NOT a Church League son.
We have 26 seasons of 80 % win percentage or higher – THAT is what the OLD 10-Win discussion was about !
Only 1 after 2007 of 80 % for Mark Richt ! One of 8 and it marred by blow-out Biblical Proportions by Spurrier 7-35 and then in front of me Mark Richt over-ruling Aaron Murray 3 times no don’t spike it !
You have told us since Mark Richt, that Nick Saban will never figure it out and expect an Aaron Murray pass with no time on clock, won’t rush him and deflect the pass and will not cover my receivers !
No one hates Mark Richt either.
I would rather have Mark Richt quit, which is that which I have said all season he will do and why he did not sign the extension – giving up half a million a year.
And, then tell us all that it was the Lord’s Will that we win this morning. Why show up then ? I guess that obviously explains the way you play against ranked teams sir ! We are to forget about the 5, 4 and 4 unanswered touchdowns by the vols, Alabama and Florida against you Mark Richt this season because it was the Lord’s Will ANYWAY so why bother to try ? It’s all preordained ? Where do you dream-up this crap Mark Richt ?
“EVERTHING IS PREORDAINED.”
You have free choice to work diligently at this your job sir – that which we offer-up $ 50 millions of dollars sir to you for coaching our team and being successful at it sir. It’s NOT God’s Will that EVERYTHING is preordained ! Not close ! Not true. Lie. You speaking of that which you have NO KNOWLEDGE ! A neophyte.
You sire are being held accountable by God for not performing your lifework up to the greatest of your ability, and wrongly putting it off on God that which was your own free choice sir. Your own free will sir ! Your goals are not our goals. Our goal is not to be SEC Champion or National Champion but to be in the game. 15 times in 15 previous Big Bowl Games Georgia has been in the game, winning most of these Big Bowl Games at the end of the season, the Nation Watching, all eyes on us, between 2 teams ranked at the very top of the Final Poll.
You never got that Mark Richt.
You still do not.
Rewriting history after all you can accomplish is a SEC East title in 8 years sir as that is our goal is just dumb.
Only your supporters who are ALL WRONG and owe me an apology would believe the lies out of your mouth that our goal was to win The SEC East.
The AJ-C has kowtowed to Mark Richt and lied about letters sent to them about our unhappiness with the direction this religious guy has taken our football program.
Bluto said that Mark Richt would be back.
Barrett Sallee Bleacher Report said to another Bleacher Reporter who bragged yesterday how great Mark Richt is and would be back, as well owe me an apology.
The Dawgbone owes me an apology insisting that anyone who dared speak up that Mark Richt is not beating the top teams and not getting us to our goals can not be linked to their WebPages.
Many DISNEYdawgs.com posters who supported the mediocrity of Mark Richt owe me an apology.
What he cares about is religion.
Not our football program.
God does not sit there and be in charge of everything at all.
God gives us Free Choice.
Lesson # 1 in my Discipleship.
According to you, then, God set Adam and Eve up for failure ! He did not. He told you He did not ! It was their will, not His. He gave them and you Free Will.
You just have chosen to NOT do your duties which could have brought great Glory on God, and have FAILED at YOUR HANDS sir ! NOT His.
Genesis 3 God tells us that He became saddened surprised and disappointed in Adam and Eve, sir ! He did NOT preordain it AT ALL ! He then tells us that Adam and Eve and all mankind would suffer for the consequences of our Own Free Will.
That is what God preordained, son. That you have Your Own Free Will, Mark Richt ! As we do to fire you. And, as you do to just step down, which is what I have called for for 8 long years now.
You have chosen to BLAME IT ALL ON HIM.
To resign yourself to Him preordaining EVERYTHING !
That is a purposeful lie on your part as you so often have done here for 15 entire years since you finally showed-up here Mark Richt.
You do not know what you’re talking about. You only recently even began studying the Bible. And, NOT very well. This is the major problem I have with you that you do NOT understand much around you – nor accept the responsibility of being our coach of our football team.
You do not think about it, because well it’s God’s Will ? Well excuse me Mark Richt, but EVERYONE else thinks about it a lot, sir ! Especially all of us who pay your salary sir. For all your obvious talent from this last of your Dream Team, 20 seniors gone, with # 8 Scout.com Average Recruiting Ranking and # 5 Most NFL Draft Picks, you surely are not Top 25 after 2007 at ANYTHING – any way you slice it – Mark Richt over this most recent most current 8-year period.
And, your blaming or resigning yourself to YOUR FACT ONLY that the Lord is in charge of EVERYTHING is another LIE from you sir to obfuscate your lousy records against the top teams after 2007. You are simply trying to turn our attention from your 2 tales of Mark Richt : (1) When you did do well oh so long ago now against the top teams 2001-2007. And, (2) when you GAVE UP, quit trying, made no effort at all, said you would become instead the CEO of this football program – promoted yourself in Peter Principle – to that which you finally then reached your own personal level of your own personal incompetence.
But, say oh well the Lord is in charge of everything.
I am satisfied.
I am over it.
I do not care.
I have no input on it anyway.
It’s all the Lord’s Will.
I do not think about it !
Why should I ?
The Lord is in charge of EVERYTHING.
I think ?
Nah; not me !
Don’t you KNOW that the Lord is in charge of EVERTHING ?
“YOU cannot blame me !”
That’s exactly what that means !
NOTHING else !
God was in charge of 2001-2007 ? God is in charge after 2007 ? Just what is that you SAY God is responsible for and not you Mark Richt – that you say is EVERYTHING ?
You are especially inept, sir, at beating Top 5, Top 10, Top 15, Top 25, and teams who go on to a bowl game that season sir. And, as bad as your records are against ALL of these – none in the Top 25 – with your # 8 talent sir, your record against them not at Home for us, is EVEN WORSE sir.
You tolerate our criticism because to be a coach is to know that, you said after the game this morning Mark Richt ?
You do NOT !
You THINK you are BETTER than us.
So, what you are left with sir is your 37-1 vs non-bowl teams after 2007, eight years of meaningless seasons with 33 teams now looking at 10-win season 2015 sir.
The Lord is NOT in charge of everything. We wanted to pay you over $ 4 million dollars a year until 2019 to have you be in charge of our Football Program. To beat ranked teams as the # 11 All-Time Win program with the # 3 best recruits available in this state which has no competition for them in-state from yellowjackets or Georgia Southern. You have FAILED to do so sir after 2007. No, sir, the Lord is NOT in charge sir – not of our football team, and NEITHER are you obviously.
The Lord is NOT responsible for all this after 2007 Mark Richt, you are !
Mark Richt averages the # 8 Scout.com Recruiting Ranking and has the # 5 Most NFL Draft Picks with 86, but after 2007 he is not in the Top 25 at really anything !
Talk about underachievement ! This blog post details the epitome of underachievement with all his talent after 2007 and details the vast resources at hand for Mark Richt to have accomplished after 2007 diddle-e-squat.
AFTER 2007 by Mark Richt and for which he is judged :
Man and God judge Mark Richt for all this after 2007 in his Calling which the Lord Called Mark Richt to, but which he DENIED and said unto the Lord, I am NOT accepting this Calling Lord. I want to be a preacher man. And, teach people in religion that which I know not either.
Mark Richt, sir, God expects us to take an active part.
This is why we find so many vigorous words and phrases in Scripture, such as “make every effort”, “strain”, “struggle”, “pursue”, “run with diligence the race set before you”, “fight the good fight”, “persist”, “resist”, “stand”, “take hold”, “guard”, “endure to the end”, etc. If everything is preordained, what would be the use of all this strenuous effort?
His plans for all of us – His plans for each of us will not be fulfilled unless we cooperate with Him in their fulfillment.
No sir. Everything is NOT preordained. You should KNOW that ! Your Calling in fact could have brought Great Glory to God, but you choose instead to say God Preordained EVERYTHING !
So, you did not try. Why indeed try Mark Richt – after all – the Lord is in charge of EVERTHING ! So, why think about anything related to anything as mundane as doing your Calling to Glorify Him. To Witness to others by doing what He asks to the best of our ability. As in every word out of your mouth : You just do not get it.
“I don’t think much about it. I think the Lord is in charge of everything. So, I don’t think much about it.” Mark Richt
God is not imposing Himself on everything Mark Richt. Good Lord, son.
This utter nonsense that Religion, Mark Richt and The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program may not be discussed, is over here on my blog.
Everything is NOT preordained. God is NOT in charge of everything.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
God does not tell ME that He is in charge of everything, but that it is MY choice, as yours – only you do not see it and prefer to hide behind that which you know not, and tell us all purposely that He indeed Is In Charge and not you therefore – not your fault : You say as your parting shot :
“YOU cannot blame me !”
# 41 at 18 losses of 24 games vs Top 15 after 2007 for # 11 All-Time UGA
Jere Morehead e-mail address (since I firmly am convinced the problem is Greg McGarity no good at his job since he got here) firstname.lastname@example.org
How can the # 11 team All-Time in Wins, with our Average # 8 Scout.com Recruiting Ranking, with 86 NFL Draft Picks # 5 best nationally, us with 17 seasons of 0 or 1 loss, us with 15 Bowl Games on the National Stage both teams ranked at the top of the Final AP Poll most of which we Won, us with 26 seasons of 80% win percentage or higher have only 1 season after 2007 over 80 % win percentage and it marred by 2 devastatingly horrible coaching decisions to be # 41 in Won/Lost Record after 2007 vs the Top 15 Ranked teams, be 36-1 vs non-bowl teams and only 36-31 for our 72-32 over the most-current 8 years averaging 4 losses per season and therefore have only played in meaningless bowl games by stark contrast with 12-1 record not at Sanford vs non-bowl teams and only 18-22 vs bowl teams # 26 nationally ? How is this possible ? How could this possibly be considered remotely acceptable ? Mark Richt can not win the big game.
He’s gone and I accomplished what I wanted to accomplish with the FIRED guy you kept bragging on. I won ! You LOST.
All I see is a list. Where are your comments, other than the obvious Nick Chubb ? I have wasted minutes of my life I can never get back, now, looking here for your comments about our largely wasted top-talent here. I say that we have largely wasted our top-talent here because using your composite rankings, we are at the very top nationally after 2007 in average recruiting rankings (second best average recruiting rank nationally verified by 2nd most NFL Draft Picks) yet marred results with disappointing losses every single year of endlessly inexplicable losses, leaving us with only # 21 in won/lost record for the same timeframe of these most-current results these most recent 7 years and counting, now.
Of the 21 Mark Richt signed last season, there is only 1 who was given any chance at all, really, and he was not given his shot until there was no one else to turn to at tailback. Nick Chubb was given only 6 carries per game for the first 5 games, and then when no one else was left to turn to, Mark Richt gave him the ball 24 carries a game thereafter.
Who lived up to the hype of the 2014 signings by Mark Richt ? Only Nick Chubb even got a chance, and he only because there was no one else to turn to. Reluctantly, Mark Richt gave him the ball last season. If it were up to Mark Richt, Nick Chubb would have had 6 carries per game, instead of the 24 carries per game he got the last 8 games of the season.
We are not very smart about recognizing the talent we do have, and putting them out there. We’d rather give a trophy to everyone and brag to the press that here at Georgia there is a more important goal we have than winning.
I suggest Nick Chubb, and no one else – and, he, only because Mark Richt had to reluctantly or he would have continued to have gotten 6 carries a game instead of the 24 after the first 5 games when he had no one else to turn to but bragged he would stand pat at that running back position. Note, too, please that this was in a season in which we patently could not or refused to throw the ball farther than 4 yards. Jacob Park would have done a lot better than Hutson Mason at that and would not have lost as he either against Georgie tek, South Carolina or Florida.
Lorenzo Carter went 8 games before we finally recognized his talent.
5 games for Nick Chubb and 8 games for Lorenzo Carter. That is how long it took to recognize their talent, and this after all the practices before the season began. We do NOT evaluate talent well.
Isaiah McKenzie, Mark Richt started right out of the chute against South Carolina. In fact, he started him 3 of those 4 games to begin the season. Isaiah McKenzie then proved he has issues with his hands holding onto the football – and since that is a learned skill we have failed to teach many here, many whom we have started at their position despite failing to coach our players here the 3-points of contact on the ball skill. This learned skill is learned before you get here, or you get BENCHED as Mark Richt did Isaiah McKenzie for the last 8 games of the season. This is an example of Favorites around here. We play Favorites and even Start them until proven otherwise. But, by the then, the season is shot. And, sometimes even after it is proven otherwise, we still play the Favorite ONLY.
Sony Michel went all the way to the last game of the season before he got one Start. And, yet he proved he was fantastic.
Hutson Mason lost the South Carolina game for us, and he lost the Florida game for us and he lost the Georgia tek game for us, after having lost the Nebraska game to end last year for us; yet Jacob Park was never considered as an option.
No. We play Favorites around here. It is what Mark Richt does. He never gives some highly-touted signings of his an opportunity at all. You know what the players say about it ? That Mark Richt turns his back on them as recruits, just when they need him the most. That is what they tell us.
The season was over last year in Game 2 when Mark Richt not only only allowed Hutson Mason to play, but called on Hutson Mason, not Todd Gurley II on 1st and Goal from the 4-yard line, to sprint out and throw or if nothing there throw it through the end zone. Hutson Mason had long-since proven he could do none of those skills. Hadn’t he ?
Sir, we play Favorites around here, and always will continue to do so, while we give others no opportunity at all to succeed – despite the quite obvious proven inabilities of the Favorite – and, despite the quite obvious proven abilities of others never given even an equal opportunity to continue to prove their proven abilities in stark direct contrast.
And, so for Field Street Forum today, to write an article :
“Who Lived up to the Hype – 2014 UGA Recruiting Class”
and, not only say none of this, but fail to say anything about any of the 21 Signings by Mark Richt, is, absolutely criminal.
Why do we have so much Attrition around here ?
I saw one “approved blog” yesterday muse without relevant detail that Mark Richt since 2001 has done ok against ranked teams, comparing his record against a South Carolina team ranked in the Top 10 in Game 2, but UNRANKED for the season.
(1) Mark Richt is 3 wins 21 losses the LATEST 24 games against teams higher ranked than he in the Final AP Poll.
(2) What a team is ranked in Game 2 is not a proper measure of the team, which is why many polls do not even come out for such early rankings.
(3) What Mark Richt did do 2001-2007 against real ranked teams – teams that made the AP or Coaches’ Polls for the SEASONS he played them – has been bragged about enough. It is high time we looked instead what he has done more recently – after 2007 – instead.
(4) Only when our fan base gets up in arms about this, will stubborn Mark Richt do anything about our useless results after 2007 compared to what he once did do when he first got here 2001-2007.
(5) All of these results of 29 losses – more than 4 a season average – after 2007, largely inexplicable losses with the level of talent he has Signed here – are ALL a direct result of roster mismanagement, Attrition, and poor evaluators of talent handed them, while instead we play Favorites, a trophy for everyone, and pile up the inexplicable losses every season including 3 more in the most recent season. Inexplicable losses to far less talented opponents than we.
It has gotten to the point that I know whatever the Hell comes out of his mouth, is a lie.
I have been bullied on the Internet and told my posts are not that of Bulldog fan and should not be allowed because of my viewpoint on Mark Richt the 2nd half of his era here at Georgia. I will be vindicated.
I am not in favor of razing Hope Smith Annex. That building was constructed too far in from Carlton Street, needlessly. Now, it is in the way. There is no need for Smith Street to exist starting at South Lumpkin Street over to Sanford Drive. We can repurpose Hope Smith Annex and expand it further over towards Carlton Street.
The New Indoor Practice Facility has focused mainly on an area miles and miles away, making that site totally untenable. However, this block of land has a building which when it was built, was intended to be there forever.
The bigger issue ultimately after all these monies are finally actually spent, is that the block next to the New Indoor Practice Facility where the Stegosaurus still stands as our “gym” built as a Cow Palace, still has to be replaced with a New Gym.
I am still struggling with $ 4 million dollars spent last week on Joni Crenshaw, an unproven coach of any sport at any level, taking over the # 5 all-time Women’s Basketball Program Lady Bulldogs.
Now, this $ 50 million dollar IPF requires we raze Hope Smith Annex.
And, the real issue is they are still ducking the fact that it’s been half a century since we hosted an NCAA Big Dance Tournament Game here in the dilapidated stinking old poorly designed Stegosaurus. Leave the Stegosaurus for what it was originally intended for, and give it to the Agricultural Department.
We need a new gym. With these wild expenses, when can we expect a new gym ?
We could have hired a proven women’s college head coach, who at least has coached somewhere. Paying her this $ 4 million dollar contract is uncalled for.
We have no vision.
We have no purpose.
We have no direction to our Athletics’ Department anymore.
This is all nonsense. Where’s our gym ?
Georgie tek had 4,000 show up to their annual Spring Football Game whatever it is called, yesterday. We had 47,000 at ours last week, when we determined we have not prepared ANY quarterback to be our Quarterback 2015 – something which has not occurred previously prior to Fran Tarkenton I saw playing at Sanford with my Dad in the late 1950 timeframe.
Georgie tek already has a new gym.
Georgie tek already has a sort of Indoor Practice Facility, although it is not even a full football field.
We have neither, but have 11 times as many fans at our Spring Football Games in the last week.
It’s the same crowd Georgie tek has every year for their Spring Football Game.
We have a pitiful Athletics’ Department right now.
All the wrong decisions are being made to keep up with Georgie tek.
We are without conceptual forethought wasting monies and making all the wrong decisions for all the wrong reasons.
Tear Down Hope Smith Annex ?
When are we going to fix the cash cow that pays for all this where the men’s bathrooms are exactly the same now at Sanford Stadium as they were at Ponce de Leon Ballpark on Ponce de Leon Avenue, across from the old Sears Building in Atlanta ?
This whole entire sordid mess wreaks of piss, like our football program after 2007 with 29 losses, an average of more than 4 losses a season for 7 seasons and counting.
Is there nothing we can get right in our Athletics’ Department anymore ?
We are 34-28, a measly 54 % win percentage against teams making a bowl game after 2007 in football – and, we are the # 11 all-time winningest 1-A football program. Our baseball team sucks. Our men’s and women’s basketball program compete with all these newer fancier basketball gyms, and cannot keep the players in-state because of our facilities’ mismanagement. Our women’s gymnastics’ program cannot win anymore either. Our women’s basketball coach quit over his team’s inability to win. We hire a baseball coach who can do nothing. We hire a women’s basketball coach who has never coached a tiddlywinks team and pay her $ 4 million dollars, while she pleads for recruits in-state to stay here and play at the Stegosaurus. Our men’s rooms at the facility paying for all this stink of piss. And, we have a president Jere Morehead allowing the utter complete failure of Greg McGarity to continue unabated since he took over, with no experience either.
We are a rudderless ship with a coach lying to us for his $ 50 million we’ve given him that he is going to win The SEC East this coming season, like that is our goal.
Shit, we suck.
Top all that off with Mark Richt announcing a few weeks’ ago now that here at Georgia, we adhere a higher Calling than Winning.
We make no timely decisions and the ones we gnash our teeth over for half a century, are wrong-headed.
How can this be that we will raze Hope Smith Annex ?
We just finished our G-Day Game 2015 without figuring out so much as who our damned quarterback even is.
This after we have lost 29 games after that fateful 2007 precious season so far to-date, an average of MORE than 4 losses a season.
Certainly not elite and not requiring any discussion as if we are.
Two, 2007, in case you cannot remember now this 2015 season, eight seasons’ ago, we lost at our Home to 6-6 South Carolina who did NOT even go to a damned bowl game.
And, in 2007, we were blown out by should have been 5-loss vols. The final score ? 14-35. They beat the ever living shit out of us. By 3 touchdowns, the lousy should have been 5-loss vols, beat us.
And, you have the unmitigated friqin’ gall to not discuss our issues yesterday again on Special Teams, and at Quarterback, but TRY to bring up instead that we were damn it all HOSED in 2007 to be left out all those years’ ago now.
Fans such as I and all the rest of us get so excited for G-Day game every year. This year is no exception with so much lost off last year’s disappointing 3 losses all 3 to far lesser-talented teams than our own. One of the banes of our program recently, after such a great start by Mark Richt here to begin with at Special Teams, is our horrible Special Teams’ showing again 2014. 2014 does not need to be labeled 2014-2015 season because well, we did not play any game in 2015. Did we ? We played in the Belk Bowl 98 miles NORTH in Charlotte. Only 3 SEC teams played their bowl game before us. What does that tell you ?
Every G-Day game, Mark Richt despite our weak ass Special Teams for years now, plays the ENTIRE GAME with NO PRACTICE of Special Teams.
Like they do not matter.
Like they are unimportant.
Like what we are doing is fine enough.
Or, like we play NO STARS on any of our Special Teams like all of our opponents do, and like we do not give a shit, except for a trophy for everyone, so all walk-ons get to play Special Teams.
This is what we’ve been doing.
Every G-Day Game the same exact format of NO SPECIAL TEAMS.
Excuse me, we do not even have a Special Teams’ Coach. Over 100 other major colleges ALL have a Special Teams coach, and by the way, damn it all, they play their stars on Special Teams.
So, as we gear up for G-Day Game after tomorrow on a beautiful not raining Saturday, I leave you with this thought
that once again 2015, there will be NO SPECIAL TEAMS play.
Some damn freaking “GAME” that is, eh ?
# 83 net punting – we’re not going to practice this, yet we can’t cover. Can we ? # 13 in SEC.
No need to practice this, is there ?
None in the world I can see.
# 59 blocked kicks allowed –we’re not going to practice this, either. We do not even know how to line up for a kick to stop the opponents from blocking them. It’s ridiculous. How in the living hell can a supposed “top team” be # 83 net punting and # 59 blocked kicks allowed, and not even practice this in game conditions ‘Tween The Hedges all of us watching and evaluating our ability to cover on our punts, or even line up for a kick to prevent opponents from taking advantage of us in what makes up at least one-third of the “GAME” of football ?
# 36 Kick-Off Returns – and all of that by TGII early and none thereafter. We have no clue how to put guys back there in position to field kick-offs who even know what to do when they get the damned ball at the 11-yard line. They call fair catch. Good Lord, Mark Richt. Is it not obvious we are way behind the 8-ball on ALL Special Teams, sir ?
Or, you just do not give a shit ?
Which is it ?
# 24 Punt Returns
# 25 Punt Returns Defense
We do not establish ourselves as a program who understands just how friqin’ important Special Teams are. We are satisfied being # 25. We do not go out and attempt to strive hard to either return punts nor defend punts. We lose game after game at these two every year. It’s the same old bullshit for Mark Richt on punt returns and punt returns defense. We make no effort to establish this as a priority to be the very best at either. No effort. No priority. And, now the day after tomorrow, no game condition practice of it.
Like it does not matter.
The freaking hell it does not matter.
Why do we lose all these games to lesser-talent teams ? Because we play Special Teams nowadays, these latest 7 years of frustrating inexplicable losses, like it is unimportant.
Don’t we ?
Isn’t that why we do not practice Special Teams with our atrocious Special Teams, any G-Day Game any more here under Mark Richt.
So, while we focus on who our quarterback is and having only 5 returning starters on either side of the ball, I leave you with this one thought for the G-Day Game :
Why is it that we fail to even try to practice in game conditions ,Special Teams, at our Annual G-Day Game ?
Excuse me sir, but if you have something say, then we are allowed sir to reply to your musings. Get that ?
I am not against your site, or your opinions, or any of your articles. I have read them all since you started.
We deserve to reply, and you need our input on what you are saying.
Either that, or you MISS everything we point out.
We are supposed to go to a one-sided site and study your every word ?
We are not to ask questions, sir ?
We are not to point out anything ?
I do not believe that the proper headline is that GURshall has returned.
I, for one, expected him not to have to endure all these four (4) injuries. We all love the man and hope for his return.
Clearly, he is NOT back, sir.
He is this year like he was last year. Isn’t he ?
He gets a medical redshirt year, and he will need it to go to the NFL. I expected with his Dad and Mom, that he would be a shoe-in for the NFL. Then, we began hearing about Todd Gurley II. More and more, we heard about TGII. Then, it was known TGII would surpass Keith Marshall, injuries or not. Then, they hit the campus together.
Todd Gurley II is gone now.
Keith Marshall has a lot of years left for us yet.
Can we please cease sir with the pressure added to him to do more than play games for us ?
We have misused him since his arrival. We force him to play the same plays TGII was going to run, if he were to have played that play too. They are entirely different running backs. There is really no similarity at all between them.
One more point sir. We have an entire stable of running backs, and you left out significant proven great things expected of them here, running backs. And, you did so in elevating others and completely left off our entire stable. It’s just not right, sir.
Like your site with COMMENTS : OFF. It is just not right, sir.
I have no idea what goes through your mind writing such a headline story as you do today sir.
It’s as one-sided as your site, sir.
If you have some aversion to hearing what others may say, close your site down sir.
If you do not like one of our running backs, then say it !
I truly do not appreciate for the players sir, that you left-off what you left-off, and that you emphasize your personal favorites to boot. I believe that there are fans of every player on our team’s roster.
You list all these running backs for us, and leave off such significant others, sir.
Ones who have produced MORE than Keith Marshall.
And, Keith Marshall does not need to have you hurry him along and come back NOT READY AS HE CLEARLY IS BY ALL ACCOUNTS except for your headline today sir that he is back exclamation point.
You owe the other running backs, and Keith Marshall, an apology, sir.
Get your media guide out, sir. Maybe that will assist you in naming a list of all our running backs ?
Or, come clean on what it is you ARE saying when you name all our running backs, and leave off others ?
Life, sir, is give and take.
I have no problems with you having an opinion. Just be man enough to stand up and say it.
And, be man enough to encourage everyone to share their thoughts on your “forum.”
I have been on the Internet since I was a student at The University of Georgia. The word forum connotates discussion, sir. The idea sir, is that you speak, we read, and we reply to your reverie, sir.
Your ruminations in this case, sir, come across as well – just wrong.
We have a lot of areas for improvement to shed all these on-going inexplicable losses every year. The salient significant one being that our fan base cease to believe that only their opinion matters, and they think they must say only the good, and disregard all these bad losses every year.
I believe we as a fan base, put too much emphasis on a player to his detriment and to our team’s detriment, and to the detriment of the other players at his position.
This brings us down as a program.
We have to fix this.
Your forced “4-headed monster” is a farce. We have Nick Chubb, whom our coaches saw fit to really not even play until the others were doing nothing. Then, we played him every play nearly every game. Had we played him on all those numerous occasions when Todd Gurley II took the play off, Nick Chubb would have won the Heisman Trophy already, and you know it. He is the only running back we rely upon. There has been, and is no “4-headed monster,” sir.
A forum, sir, is an open place where opinions are shared, sir. Everyone in one open public place, sir.
An Internet forum, is an online discussion site where we all can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. Sometimes in a thread on an Internet forum sir, you agree or disagree with that which is said.
And, sometimes you have something to add to that which someone has said.
Each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish to, sir.
Your site is not a forum, sir.
Keith Marshall has not returned exclamation point, sir.
We have no “4-headed monster” as you define it, sir.
You sir, are just plain wrong.
Aren’t you, sir ?
About everything in this pontification on Keith Marshall, whom it is you refer to as our “4-headed monster” and everyone you left off.
Aren’t you, sir ?
You have to fix this.
I have posted on the Internet daily since 1977. I have run a BBS since 1977 with multiple access on a PC I built myself, sir. There are always replies to these forums, sir.
I believe that Faton Bauta is a great running back for us, who also happens to have a good arm. He has proven both sir. He knows the plays, and is recognized as an Academic Genius. He is a punishing runner who holds on to the ball, and has been misused by this staff.
Brendan Douglas needs to hold on to the football. Now that he has a running back coaching him, instead of wide receiver, I expect him to be taught this lesson. It is a learned skill. 3 points on the football. He played in 150% more games just last season 2014, than Sony Michel did, sir. Brendan Douglas, sir, also the year before in 2013 had the most games played for us and was our most accomplished running back 2013 besides Todd Gurley II and J.J. Green whom we transferred to Georgie tek because of our poor roster management. You left him off somehow, and the slight does not go unnoticed by yours truly, sir.
What are you saying about Brendan Douglas ?
He was 2nd on the Depth Chart 2014 season, sir.
“4-headed monster,” sir ?
Isaiah McKenzie is an accomplished running back for us, sir; and, while he too needs to be taught by our now running backs’ coach who in fact was a running back and knows how to hold on to the football as a running back, you cannot name today as you have sir Wednesday 8 April 2015, any “4-headed monster” at running back and leave him out either, sir.
Quayvon Hicks is another misused running back for us you left off as well. We misuse him as we misuse Keith Marshall, forcing Keith Marshall to run inside the tackles when his expertise is out in space. We do not play Quayvon Hicks at all. We prefer a trophy for everyone in our roster mismanagement so we stole his job for us and gave it to a guy Merritt Hall, who is not in the program and did not play a single game 2014 after being named as a walk-on stealing Quayvon Hicks’ job.
We bungle talent everywhere every year now.
No more so than at running back.
While we brag on the coach making these decisions, and his decisions, and his greatness, while in fact his roster mismanagement is nowhere more evident than at this running back position, sir.
Sony Michel is certainly an accomplished running back, too. He only played in eight (8) games and wasted his redshirt year for that. His carries were all in mop-up duty. 8 of should have been 15-game season for the top teams, which this time last year, you declared sir we were one of. Wasted talent.
A.J. Turman is a heralded running back whose talent also has been totally wasted. He is the 6th best football player in the state of Florida, no less. Not at running back, but A.J. Turman is the 6th best overall player in the state of Florida. 4-Star Running Backs of this stature come along very rarely. He is the complete running back with bruising blocking, soft hands, and punishing style. We witnessed for example last G-Day Game both score touchdowns both running and catching. A. J. Turman was recruited by us in 2012 and signed with us in 2013 to great fanfare, and has yet to carry the ball once. Bullshit, is all I can say about this roster mismanagement as well. All at just the running back position you highlight today for us all, sir.
We have so much talent at running back, wasted talent – every single man, that not one (0) nada running backs would sign with us this 2015 year until the night before Signing Date when really a wide receiver, Tae Crowder, was first recruited by us. Our coach will jerk him around, like he did J.J. Green – moving him around too from position to position until finally his opportunity here, as with these others, has come and gone as well.
B.J. Emmons the 7th best running back in the nation, looking at all these who really none of them have even been given a fair shot at running back here, has said he fills the bill for next season for us.
And, I am quite certain his career here will also be marred by our coach’s roster mismanagement here too of him. I welcome your reply here on this real forum where everyone who has ever said anything here is instantly heard by all worldwide Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Fans.
We do not value running backs. We have a wealth of talent at running back, and not one of them was picked-out even to be The Man at Running Back. Had we given Nick Chubb even a fair shot at it to begin last year while Todd Gurley II stood the sidelines, Nick Chubb would’ve already won the Heisman Trophy.
As for your bullshit “4-headed monster” at tailback for us, you sir are a DISNEYdawgs.com poster of a DISNEYdawgs.com site where ONLY your opinion is ever heard.
At least Buck Belue tells it like it is.
You sir can kiss my ass about your so-called “4-headed monster” at TB for us, your so-called “forum,” and about all those you left off your “4-headed monster” at TB for us, and especially proclaiming that Keith Marshall is you say only sir back.
Tae Crowder’s recruiting video highlights are awesome. Here is the URL Link for yourself. He made the teams he ran against, look bad. 1-year running back. He could play tight end or split-out for us wide, and he can return kick-offs and punts. He is a handful, actually. I remember the Tim Jennings recruitment well, too out of Orangeburg South Carolina, but he was 5′ 8″ and 179 lbs. – not at all like Tae Crowder. Tae Crowder is 6′ 3″ and 225 lbs. Tim Jennings is Super Bowl Champion with Indianapolis Colts, and has made the Pro Bowl twice with the Chicago Bears now, since. Tim Jennings led the entire NFL in interceptions 3 years’ ago now.
Imagine a 2-star 5′ 8″ cornerback was the 2nd round draft pick for Super Bowl Champion Colts ? That was the story on Tim Jennings. His height and slight build. That was Mark Richt’s 1st recruiting class, the year before we recruited Bryan McClendon whose Dad Willie was a great running back for us I remember very well. This is as diametrically opposed to Tae Crowder as it gets, who was over-looked by some not because of his height or slight build, but because he had only played running back 1 year. He very well might not be a running back, but spread out more and special teams’ leader, although again he made the opponents look silly out there in this highlights’ video at running back and kick-off returner. Tim Jennings’ cousin also was a cornerback in the NFL, Donnie Abraham, who is also 5′ 9″ tall of the Tampa Bay and New York Jets’ teams. Actually, the NFL has had quite a few cornerbacks who are quite short and they have done themselves proud, really. In one season, Tim Jennings has racked-up NFL leading 13 interceptions and 15 pass break-ups in a season, too. Tim Jennings ran a 4.32 in 40-yard dash, but he was just so slight when he got here. At the NFL Combine, Tim Jennings had not only again 4.32 in 40-yard dash but also 37 and a half inches vertical leap – both of which have made this Pro Bowl Cornerback a staple in the NFL for a decade now. He is 31 now. In 131 NFL games, Tim Jennings has 78 passes defended, 461 tackles, 20 interceptions, and 3 NFL Touchdowns as a multiple Pro Bowl cornerback also forcing 9 fumbles and recovering 6 fumbles. For Georgia, Tim Jennings accumulated 165 tackles in 4 years here, 4 interceptions and 27 passes defended along with 4 fumble recoveries and 4 interceptions, 2 of which he took to the house, here.
Rivals had Tim Jennings a 2-star recruit because of his slight build.
Tae Crowder is a Scout.com 3-Star recruit. Georgia was 1 of 8 Division 1 schools to give a scholarship offer to Tae Crowder. If he can be as good as little Tim Jennings, he’d be special, wouldn’t he ? Rivals has Tae Crowder as a 2-star recruit, while Scout.com has Tae Crowder as a 3-star recruit, obviously. And, Tae Crowder is the only running back we recruited in this # 4 Scout.com class this year although Rivals has us ranked the # 6 class 2015.
I just do not really get the comparison of Tim Jennings to Tae Crowder, at all really.
Tae Crowder is a 3-star recruit who other SEC teams also offered a scholarship to, and other Top 25 AP Poll teams offered him a scholarship too. How does that compare with little Tim Jennings for heaven sakes ?
National Champions averaged the # 8 recruiting class, while Mark Richt averaged # 8 recruiting class. National Champion head coach averaged 3 and a half years as head coach when they won the national championship on Mark Richt’s watch head-to-head, while Mark Richt is starting his 15th season this year without. In fact, Mark Richt has not even been in a single big bowl game at the end of the season on the National Stage everyone watching all this talent good enough to have won nc each year, but instead # 21 in won/lost record the most recent now 8 seasons and counting.
Mark Richt averages the same recruiting ranking as the national champions have and while their head coach averages having been there 3 and a half years before he won the national championship, Mark Richt is starting his 15th season without a national championship. That is 5 times WORSE for Mark Richt.
If coaching is defined as getting more from less, then Mark Richt is as far to the other end of the scale as God could possibly put him. Mark Richt has the most talent but produces the # 21 team while watching coaches of 14 other teams at other schools only be there at their school 3 and one-half years before they won the nc with the same talent as Mark Richt here.
You can verify this recruiting ranking by Scout.com by checking it against NFL Draft Picks and what you find is that while Mark Richt has had MORE THAN ENOUGH TALENT here to win national championships by Scout.com recruiting rankings, as you will find that the NFL also agrees with Scout.com rankings with Mark Richt’s 86 NFL Draft Picks 2nd best nationally in the Mark Richt era – on his watch.
I am told I am a poor Bulldogs’ fan because well, I research this stuff we all know off the tops of our heads anyway, and put it down here for all to see that in fact Mark Richt is not going to win a national championship by recruiting better classes because he has by God had every bit as much talent as in fact the national champions have had, but while he has been here 5 times longer than they were there as their head coach on his same watch, he just has gotten less from his recruits – wasting talent.
We waste talent across the board. Roster Mismanagement. We have not been beating the top teams now in many years and we lose recently as well to far less talented teams than we have. We cannot win away from Sanford, either against the teams making the AP Poll Top 25. We’re horrid at it, when he once was so good away from Sanford.
And, so now, I turn you over now to your censoring DISNEYdawgs.com and their blogs of bullshit of how well we’re doing and how this year’s recruiting class or certainly next year’s will get Mark Richt national championships like all these other coaches who do it 5 times faster than he has already with his same talent here. Hasn’t he ?
We’re failing, and the national fans and national media know this intuitively off the top of their heads.
We’ve had the talent.
What we have as well is a coach long in the tooth here now 15 seasons this season, and he has zero prayers of winning the national championship 2015, either, does he ?
Mark Richt wastes talent. Mark Richt recruits very well. Mark Richt recruits national championship talent, and gets less from them than coaches at their schools 5 times fewer years than he has been here now already. So, this bullshit of give him one more year is a fallacy. Isn’t it ? Give him another year for what ? Tell us that his goal is to GET TO The SEC Championship game and everything else will take care of itself ? He has NOT WON that game 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 and in 2005 he actually ended up the # 3 SEC team in every single solitary poll behind Alabama and LSU then him.
How can Mark Richt, with all this talent, have lost 21 of his latest 24 games against teams higher ranked than him for the season ?
How in the name of God ?
How can recruiting a better recruiting class be our Savior ?
He has failed with talent better than his opponents, and LOST.
Having more talent then is clearly not the answer.
We are on our 3rd longest streak of no SEC Championships in our history dating back to when The SEC was established in 1933.
This is 2015.
Frankly, his 2005 SEC is tainted, coming in 3rd in every single solitary poll for the 2005 season.
And, his 2002 SEC is tainted as well because The SEC was so bad 2002 season. In fact, only a 4-Loss Auburn was ranked in the Coaches’ Poll for the 2002 season, besides us. We played a 5-loss Arkansas for crying out loud who was not even ranked for the “2002 SEC Championship.”
It is exasperating to listen to the absolute bullshit of what a fine man Mark Richt is.
He is a dumbass coach, who the kids love, who is in fact 2nd rate in his actual Calling.
If God called this guy to be head coach football, He did not Yell very loudly for Mark Richt says if he is only known as a football coach, it would be a disaster.
He can NOT coach.
Can he ?
Nowhere near the coach DISNEYdawgs.com make him out to be.
“Larry Pope writes: Bill, forgive me if I missed it, but have you commented on last week’s Sports Illustrated college recruiting analysis, which shows (a) UGA has the most NFL draftees, (b) on average the No. 5 recruiting classes but only No. 15 AP poll ranking, and what that says about the state of UGA football?
No, I missed that one, but I’ve seen other analyses that compare Georgia’s recruiting prowess and reputation for producing NFL talent with its on-field results and conclude that the Dawgs have been underachievers. And you can make a pretty good case that Mark Richt’s final results haven’t lived up to expectations, particularly in recent seasons”
Speaking of recruiting, Steve Upshaw writes: Mark Richt has publicly stated a dominant offensive line isn’t necessary to win big. He said they won all those games at FSU without having great offensive lines. The Seminoles do not play in the rugged SEC. You have stated several times how the OL is a perennial problem with the Dogs during the Richt era. As written in your most recent posting, once again there did not seem to be an emphasis on getting top O linemen signed. Nine of the Top 10 and 17 of 20 top OL prospects in Georgia chose to leave the state. It’s pointless to despair over Mark Richt. He is who he is, and that is a man who will never change nor adapt while everyone else around him is in constant adjustment mode and winning championships. So Dog fans, let’s get ready for another 10-win season. I love my team and school. That’s why I’ll be there again in section 137, row 60 hoping against all hope we’ll finally witness something different in 2015 — but I doubt it.
As I previously wrote, one of the areas I was most concerned about was offensive line, more with future seasons in mind than 2015, since those guys generally take a year or two to develop. And while Georgia did pretty well here in the latest recruiting class, it bothered me they didn’t really seem to put top priority on signing offensive linemen until after new coach Rob Sale was hired last month, when they suddenly launched on a frantic quest for prospects in that area. I think you may have touched on why this has chronically been the case under Richt — he’s convinced himself that a merely adequate OL is good enough”
Charley Trippi lives in Athens, Georgia and is a proud graduate of The University of Georgia. He is in both the College Football Hall of Fame and in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He won MVP of the NFL Championship Game, after being selected # 1 in the NFL Draft. He also is a Consensus All-America Football player (required to be in the College Football Hall of Fame) and won the Maxwell Award as the finest College Football Player. He won one of our Six (6) National Championships in the Rose Bowl 1942, after then after having his college career interrupted by World War II, he returned here to us and won us another National Championship 1946 winning the Sugar Bowl undefeated. He also is a tremendous baseball player. We are all very proud of Charley Trippi.
This is a wonderful photo of Charley Trippi here at Georgia.
He comes to our games.
We retired his # 62 Jersey.
Johnny Rauch of NFL fame, said that Charley Trippi is our Greatest Quarterback and a lot better than he.
Charley Trippi won the Rose Bowl for Georgia prior to World War II, and then after proudly serving this great country after we were attacked in such cowardly fashion in such a vicious manner, Charley returned to UGA and won us another national championship. 2 of our 6.
As a baseball player, there never has been an equal to Charley Trippi representing The University of Georgia.
Professional baseball player and professional football player.
How many ever will do that ?
Charley is from Pennsylvania and one of the greatest recruits in the nation. Notre Dame had, you know, the reputation for playing in the big bowl games and winning national championships in football. But, we never had. Not until Charley Trippi. Charley Trippi really started it all for Wally Butts and for Georgia. And, Charley led our baseball team beating the shit out of Georgie tek. This was a time when Georgie tek was good in football back then, but baseball they were not our equal. This season just ended, Georgie tek won its first Major Bowl Game Win since 1955. That’s how long they have suffered.
Charley Trippi’s over 2,500 yards passing in the NFL, over 3,500 yards rushing and over 1,300 yards receiving marks the only Pro Football Hall of Fame member to have achieved these numbers in all 3.
Charley Trippi is the player who won the MVP of the Rose Bowl, just as he won the MVP of the NFL Championship Game (preceded the Super Bowl but is the same exact game and distinction.) Thus, I always have listed Charley Trippi with the Super Bowl MVP list here at Georgia by calling it NFL Championship Game MVP. It is quite a shame to act like 49 games is the entire history of the NFL ignoring those with the same Award prior to the 49 Super Bowls. You might not remember those games prior to Joe Willie Namath, but I certainly do. For a long time, the NFL would never consider the AFL as up to their standards, you see ?
To the day, therefore as well, the NFL calls it the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Charley Trippi played for the NFL Chicago Cardinals.
Charley Trippi played for the Atlanta Crackers before we went to every game, every night. His batting average is .334 as a professional baseball player. The Atlanta Crackers were a huge hit in Atlanta and filled the stadium with star players. We had a sign in right center field from C&S Bank which paid $ 1000 to any player who hit a home run into the large circular hole the sign had in it. I saw several. 3 I saw hit through it. Later, Charley Trippi came back when I was going to the games every night and coached our team. We won 1st place every single year. Always the Champions.
We had great players on the Atlanta Crackers. Names I can recite to you, and their children they brought to the games too who played on the field pre-game, and later went into MLB too.
The NFL after 1 year on the Atlanta Crackers paid Charley Trippi $ 100,000 plus a $ 25,000 bonus to play with them instead and he did instantly being NFL Championship Game MVP and NFL Champion, after being selected # 1 over-all in the 1st Round of the NFL Draft 1945. You could buy a new Packard for $ 500.
Charley Trippi also served on the coaching staff of the NFL Cardinals.
Quite a nice man, and fun to talk to, I have admired Charley Trippi all my life. My Dad in World War II was stationed part of the time in the Pacific and part of the time at the Pentagon and he introduced me to Charley Trippi at one of our games, telling me in front of Charley how he had Washington Redskins seasons tickets as an orphan from Georgia and watched Charley Trippi return punts, kick-off returns, actually the punter as well, catch passes, throw passes, run, intercept passes and excel at all phases of the game. Charley Trippi is so gracious.
Charley Trippi did not sell popcorn at half-time.
I believe one of the greatest quotes of all-time is his teammate College Football Hall of Fame Quarterback Johnny Rauch when inducted in the Hall of Fame said that truth be told, he preferred to pitch the ball back to half-back Charley Trippi. Charley Trippi throws the ball better than I.
The Arizona Cardinals claim Charley Trippi, but I think with my background here, that I claim Charley Trippi.
The fine University of Georgia Baseball Program who has a national championship in the College World Series, also had Charley Trippi as our head baseball coach and for good reason as well.
Charley Trippi is a great hitting instructor.
We’ve had several 2-sport stars at Georgia, and we’ve had several really great football players and baseball players.
There never has been anyone who really stands the scrutiny of Charley Trippi – man without peer.
Charley Trippi was such a great football player that he played both ways, serving as defensive back. In fact, when you look up his records, many list him at my position, db.
Pennsylvania is long known for their famous Italian-Americans, but perhaps none so highly decorated as this really good guy, Charley Trippi.
I have no idea why folks cannot spell his name.
I grew up on Charley Trippi in our home. Charley Trippi is my hero.
Charles Louis Trippi.
Charley has a great family including a son bearing his name as well.
I do not bear his name. I could never live up to it.
Charley Trippi was great for us prior to WWII. And, then he returned home as Dad did here. At that time, Charley Trippi won us a National Championship as MVP Rose Bowl 1942, then went to fight in the War, then came back and won us another national championship in football his final season here 1946 also winning the Maxwell Award as the nation’s best college football player, then went to the Crackers batting .334, then the Cardinals and instantly was # 1 Draft Pick, MVP NFL Championship Game (Super Bowl) scoring several touchdowns and therefore NFL Champion 1947. Then, College Football Hall of Fame and Pro Football Hall of Fame.
One of the greatest players of All-Time in The SEC.
I have been to several Charley Trippi Days at Sanford Stadium, and always love to see him on the field. A more humble man, you’ll never meet.
Wish some of that would rub off on me !
At Georgia, Charley Trippi batted .464
What does that tell you ?
Charley Trippi played for us in the Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl and Sugar Bowl. How about that ?
I just thought you should know, since you do not know much about us. About all I ever hear here or any of the other Georgia Bulldogs’ blogs ever from you, is Ray Goff and how great Mark Richt is today losing more than 4 games a season average over the latest 7 years. Yeah, Charley Trippi and I suffered through the Ray Goff years too.
Average over more than 4 losses a season for the latest 7 years here at UGA in football ? Not on the same playing field as Charley Trippi – The Single Greatest Bulldog Ever.
Lives in Athens with his family and very active in technology as a Real Estate Business Owner.
So, as we tip our hats to deserving loved ones this Valentine’s Day 2015, I raise up Charley Trippi to you as my personal hero.
Have a great day Charley Trippi, sir.
You never settled for 2nd best at anything, ever. Who is a real hero ?
2008 we were ranked # 1 Consensus by both AP and Coaches’ Polls, but played very poorly and were dropped from the # 1 spot prior to our Black-Out against # 10 game time Coaches’ Poll Alabama at home, where we fell behind on national TV 30 to nothing, losing that game by more than double-digits coming into that game # 6 ourselves in both polls. The very night that for the 1st time in the then 116 year history of # 11 All-Time UGA Football Program in Wins, 22 players went out and celebrated. We were in bar room brawls, all kinds of mayhem and ended up with one of our players even beating up St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens. This night that both Coaches’ and AP Poll ranked us # 1 for the 1st time in our history, ever and only, was the beginning of what has been the most under-achieving program of the top recruiting programs in the United States of America.
We went on 2008 to not only lose to Alabama after bragging how we’d beat them, but we lost to game time # 7 Coaches’ Poll Florida 10-49. It was so bad in this game for the Consensus # 1 UGA Bulldogs that when we finally did score a TD late in the game meaningless to the outcome against their 3rd stringers, we still playing our Consensus # 1 Starters, that the Florida players clapped politely like little old ladies at an opera. You might not know that, since you were not there at the game, but I am sure you can find others like we who were there to verify this under-achieving 2008 team that started all this under-achieving for us. It was embarrassing.
Then, this under-achieving 2008 UGA team Consensus # 1 lost to Georgie tek who was ranked # 22 in both polls for the season, a 4 loss team who should have been a 5-loss team. A team made up of # 52 average recruiting rankings, beating us, the Consensus # 1 team in the nation pre-season 2008. Our team has averaged the # 9 recruits 2001-2015.
Or, just bad luck ?
Fulmer Cup National Championship 2008. That is what we won. For going out celebrating our # 1 Consensus pre-season. And, for beating up a Hospital.
This 2008 season marked not only the demise of our program since, but was the penultimate under-achiever.
You do discuss 2009 season. You said, setting that year to the side. Well, let’s summarize that which we exclude to discuss the years you do discuss, shall we ? 2009, we started out losing to Okie State who would go on to a 5-loss should have been 6-loss season in which they even with their win over us, did not make the AP Poll Top 25 for 2009. Then, we lost to one of the worst LSU teams in recent memory, a should have been 5-loss LSU. Then, we lost to a 7-6 vols’ team 19-45 in a blow-out of Biblical Proportions. Then, we lost to Florida 17-41. Then, 7-6 Kentucky beat us – matching two then 7-6 teams who beat us 2009 alone.
2010 there is no need to discuss since we had a losing record.
2011 then we lost to Boise State and to South Carolina back-to-back to begin the season. I bought a Bust Boise T-Shirt prior to the game at the Georgia Dome. Want it ? I cannot even wear it to mow the grass in – so ashamed. Then, LSU beat the crud out of us 10-42. Coming back to you ? SEC East Champions you refer to us as 2011. You mean the SEC Championship Game 10-42 ? That’s what we’re talking about. As if that was not bad enough, then we lost to Michigan State – all this 2011. Sweet, right ? Not under-achiever, Heavens no. Just bad luck.
2011, you say we should have played for the national championship and not LSU who beat 7 AP Poll Top 25 teams that 2011 season. LSU beat South Carolina and us, but we according to you should’ve played in the national championship and not LSU. Who buys into that ? LSU 2011 beat # 19 Texas A&M, # 4 Oregon, # 25 Mississippi State, # 16 West Virginia, # 17 Florida, # 19 Auburn, # 1 Alabama, # 3 Arkansas, and # 20 Coaches’ Poll 2011 UGA a 4-loss team we were 2011. I am sorry, but our recruiting rankings were as good as LSU’s, who beat all these teams. We under-achieved and they did not 2011.
Expected based on talent to contend.
Came in instead # 20 Coaches’ Poll a 4-loss squad while LSU beat the ever living daylights out of us 10-42. Perhaps you were not there either at that game either ? I was. It was cold. LSU folks let us share their jambalaya. It was good. The game was not, nor the ride home on Marta. When did we have a year like LSU did 2011 ? LSU lost to # 1 Alabama in the rematch in the NC game. 2002 ? That the year we supposedly were as good as LSU 2011 ? The year we lost to unranked Florida going in fact 0-13 on 3rd down conversions for the game ? Losing to Ron Zook ? That the year ? Selective memory not to discuss that game. Perhaps once again, you were not there as we ? What a long ride home.
What an utter disaster.
We were better than Miami of Florida 2002 you say ?
Miami 2002 beat should have been 6-loss Florida 41-16.
At the Swamp, no less.
Miami beat # 9 FSU 2002. Miami beat # 17 Pittsburgh, # 18 Virginia Tech, and lost to # 2 Ohio State 24-31 in the game in which Ohio State’s running back for that one season admitted that he made MORE money at Ohio State for, than he did in the NFL.
Georgia 2002 compared to Miami 2002 in fact shows that The SEC was down 2002. Way down. The only other SEC team besides us in the Final Coaches’ Poll 2002 was a 4-loss Auburn.
As for the it’s been a decade since we won The SEC Championship, saying SEC Championship 2005, well did you not also there too forget to point out that we ended-up in EVERY POLL the # 3 SEC team ? We did you know ? Maybe you were not at the Georgia Dome against West Virginia in the Sugar Bowl 2005 ? We were just getting settled back in our seats after booing Mike Adam$ when the score was 0-28, losing that game and propelling both Alabama and LSU to both be higher ranked in the Final Polls 2005. We were The SEC Champion ? # 3 in EVERY POLL 2005. 2005, we had lost you recall to Florida another lousy horrible Florida team we’ve lost to. Florida should’ve been a 4-loss team 2005, but no. No, they beat us 2005. Then, we lost to Auburn in the next game. Then, I bought us ticket to the Sugar Bowl and we lost to West Virginia. I do not remember seeing you there. Did I miss you at the game ? 2005 we won The SEC Championship ? Really ? That all you can say about 2005 ? I have a better memory of 2005 firsthand, than you I do believe sir.
2012 we are up to now. Well, 2012 got off to a rocky start losing to Nebraska to start the 2012 year off. Then, we played South Carolina and lost 7-35. Where did you mention that ? Did I miss that in your summary fluffing over this ?
This was 1 of the most under-achieving performances in our storied UGA history now 123 years’ old. 7-35 blow-out of Biblical Proportions even does not begin to suggest the under-achieving of us 2012 against South Carolina. LSU you say was lucky 2012 and we were unlucky. LSU beat South Carolina 2012. Why did you not in all fairness say that LSU beat South Carolina and that we LOST to them by 7-35. We gave up . Quit. Folded the tent. LSU beat the same team we lost to 2012, and not just lost to them but were embarrassed by them. Weren’t we ? Go ahead. You can say it. We all know.
National Press and our own fans label us as under-achievers ?
Then, 2012 we lost to Alabama. To hear your rendition of the game again we were at, you might not have been to too, there is no mention of little Aaron Murray asking Mark Richt 3 times in front of me : Spike It ? Spike It ? Spike It ? All 3 times Mark Richt said no. Well, after the game he intimated that was a mistake. Duh. Rushed against # 1 Alabama then we threw a pass deflected by Alabama from little Aaron Murray. Hit at the line. Excuse me, we lost that game because of that. Read your summary of that game and no mention of Spike It ? How is that possible sir ?
2007 you discussed as well. 2007 we lost to South Carolina, again. Again, LSU beat South Carolina 2007. But, according to you, LSU was lucky and we were not lucky 2007. South Carolina was a 6-6 team 2007 and did not even play in a bowl game 2007 season. But, they beat us. LSU beat South Carolina by two touchdowns. The vols beat us 2007 in a yet again a Blow-Out for the ages 14-35. They beat us to a pulp by 3 Touchdowns. LSU ? Of course, LSU beat Tennessee 2007. The vols were a should’ve been 5-loss team 2007. But, we under-achieved. To hear your rendition of 2007, no one would ever suspect that LSU in fact beat both the teams we lost to 2007. LSU 2007 ?
2007 LSU beat # 9 Virginia Tech, beat South Carolina whom we lost to, beat # 16 Coaches’ Poll 2007 Florida, beat # 15 Auburn, beat Alabama who at time of game was # 17 AP Poll, beat the vols whom we lost to, and beat # 1 Ohio State by two touchdowns. Us 2007 better than LSU, and more deserving ?
I am sorry sir, but that is just plain old B.S. isn’t it ?
2013 we’re up to now and you concede 2013 now we did under-achieve. You think ? We lost to Clemson, Missouri, Auburn, Nebraska and oh by the way we lost to Vandie as well 2013. Under-achiever 2013. Well, you got that one right.
5 losses 2013 and your summary of 2013 is that well we under-achieved 2013. What was your 1st clue ?
2014 is not an under-achiever according to you. How ? On what planet ? We played Nebraska to begin the 2014 year and lost to a unranked Nebraska team 2014 in the January 2014 bowl game. Nebraska was not ranked in either poll time of game, and after they beat us, they STILL DID NOT MAKE THE AP POLL. What does that tell you ? Under-achiever 2014 for us or Nebraska ? Then, with that back-drop all off-season, we go to South Carolina and lose to Steve Spurrier. A South Carolina team 2014 who not only does not make the AP Poll Top 25 for 2014 season, but does not make the Coaches’ Poll either. But, they beat us. No discussion by you other than we did not under-achieve 2014 season; but again after the game Mark Richt again admitted if he had it to do all over again, he’d pound it with Todd Gurley II on 1st and goal from the 4-yard line after interception, losing by 3. B.S. 2014 was not under-achieving year. We had that game. We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
If that was not bad enough, then we go down 2014 to JAX and play should’ve been 6-Loss Florida, another unranked team we lost to 2014. And, we get blown-out of the water. Florida out-scored us by 3 touchdowns. Unranked Florida. They had lost you might recall before we got in our vehicle to head down there losers of 10 of their previous 13 games. But, they beat us to a pulp. Recurring theme ? Under-achiever ? Us or Florida ? Florida fired their coach anyway the week after he beat us.
Then, to add insult to injury 2014, we are playing at Sanford Stadium against a team who averages # 52 recruiting rankings to our # 9 and we lose to them. Mark Richt again afterwards admitting on review, he should have kicked-off deep.
Just to set the record straight, if you allow a guy to write once a week and have his say to your comment that in fact for the latest 7-year period here at UGA that we are not under-achievers with our # 9 average recruiting rank, just unlucky.
If ever there ever was or ever will be a team who averages the # 9 recruiting ranking as we every year – all this talent – who has so under-achieved after 2007 with all this talent and who in fact has beat only 54 % of the teams that even went to a bowl game the entire period after 2007, it is us. Sir. With all due respect.
Unlucky. What a load of bullshit.
Not under-achievers averaging # 9 recruiting class and beat only 54 % of teams even going to a damn bowl game after 2007 through to-date ?
“The Georgia football program has been tagged as an underachieving one by both local fans and the national media, but is it truly a fair assessment?” Michael Collins Dawn of the Dawg wrote 2 hours’ ago now.
(1) I believe we must quit bragging on the program right now and get job done instead. This is the number one problem and number one obstacle to us winning the national championship. We have a fan base of whiners and excuse makers, not fans of the program telling it like it is. We do not therefore work on that which we must to win our 7th national championship in football. It’s our fans’ fault.
(2) We must start getting the most out of the 85 scholarship recruits, which means that if you are going to have 3 Top 10 Quarterbacks in the nation and another # 11 nationally, that you put them in the damn games and play them. We do not need a 4 TD lead against Auburn with 5 minutes’ all remaining in the game. We blow redshirt seasons on players that frankly only get to play the very least opponent we play all season long whom we beat by the way 30 out of the last 31 times anyway. Get them in in the 2nd possession.
(3) We do a very poor job of preparing our back-up quarterback, and we must instead start playing our 2nd string Quarterbacks a LOT more than we have been. When Hutson Mason went down with injury, it was patently obvious that we have once-again failed to properly prepare Brice Ramsey. Not once, or maybe once, all season long did I witness proper footwork from Brice Ramsey back there. A lot of heart and great potential, NFL talent, but he has to set his feet and follow through on every pass instead of the sling the ball from awkward positioning of his feet.
(4) We must recruit more OL than just 4 in a class bragging on that.
(5) We have got to get back to recruiting top fullbacks to this used-to-be fullback oriented offense, while we’ve recruited one in 7 seasons. There are over 200 Top-Ranked Fullbacks nationally and idly stand by while our Rivals come into our Home State here and take them, while we do not even offer them. Craziness. It’s just like what we do on Special Teams, too ! Just play the worst guys on the team who cannot make offense or defense, and find one of those and make him the Fullback. Bullshit.
(6) We sorely needed to update our old-style antiquated offense, which I presume is what Schottenheimer will do. I only make this point # 6 because I heard a lot said about him being hired because he knows this exact offense we have been running for 14 seasons’ prior now. Well, it’s not working ! We fail on offense and send the non-special special teams out there to bail out the offense. And, we send back the tired defense again and again to bail out our failed offense. We were # 89 nationally in passing 2014. That sucks. We had every reasonable defense stack the box and what did we do ? Either passed into the teeth of those defenses with short 4-yard dink-downs. It was all we did. Our running back had the longest pass play of the season. What the friq does that tell you ? When you hear that we had 30 unanswered points scored against us, quit thinking it’s all the defense’s problem and begin recognizing that our offense failed to score while their offense put up 30. Think we might lose those types of games ? We either passed 4-yard passes into the teeth of stacked boxes against us, or we ran into the teeth of the defenses stacked against the short game. We never passed the ball downfield. Never. Had we done that with Brice Ramsey throwing deep, the running game would’ve opened up and we would not have lost to 3 far less talented teams again 2014.
(7) We must maximize 85 scholarship recruiting slots which means giving more preferred walk-on scholarships as we did finally this season to special teams’ players. We need to understand that we need minimum numbers of OL and DL every season, and not have holes such as Fullback. We need to keep 85 Scholarship Recruits at all times. Having only 72 is the pits, and it costs us games we lose instead as a result. A lot of games
(8) Encourage coaching staff and recruits to win, that winning is most important to us
(9) We must get back to throwing to our TE like we did when we were great a decade ago
(10) Cease discussing 10-win seasons as meeting expectations or exceeding them in 15-game seasons for the top teams
(11) We have to keep up with other programs, especially in conference, in our stadium by spending large sums to upgrade Sanford. We have fallen way behind our main SEC rivals. This starts with us filling in the Bridge between the North Campus where I took 85 % of my classes and the South Campus while leaving a view of Baxter Street.
(12) Our Athletics’ Department has to do a far better job than has been done by Greg McGarity who started here several weeks before the 2010 season and thus has 21 losses in his 5 years’ here to-date, averaging the same as the program has now for the latest 7-year period too of OVER 4 LOSSES A SEASON. Over 4 Losses a season for five (5) years’ time for Greg McGarity is pitiful. He cannot stand pat. He must upgrade our Program if we are to get competitive.
(13) We need MORE home games. We continue to win higher percentages of home games than we do away from Sanford. And, it is a widening margin all the time nowadays. 36-8 at home for latest 7-year period after 2007 to-date and only 28-21 away from Sanford. This means that we are not lured into playing games at the new Peach Bowl/Falcons stadium – unless it is moving the JAX game there for the next hundred years. All the time, the top programs put an absolute emphasis on maximizing the number of home games for their teams. Some top teams schedule as many as Eight (8) home games in a single season ! Our home games have been too few, and even fewer of the top rival games.
(14) Get the damn game out of JAX where our coach says he is at a disadvantage and make it even Steven for us against a team who considers us their # 1 Rival. Our coach is 5-9 there. It has to come to an end. Mark Richt loses down there where I’ve been to more than 25 games to way worse teams many times than we have. Why is this ? We must be committed to removing the game from JAX as we removed the Auburn Game from only in Columbus Georgia. And, as we removed the Georgie tek game from only in Atlanta.
(15) Our Athletics’ Department has to cease talking about building a cheap indoor practice facility 4 miles away from Sanford. That’s too far, and I do not care how much less it costs there. We need to get this indoor practice facility and get us a new gymnasium built so that the scholarship recruits in-state in all sports WANT to come to UGA because of the facilities.
(16) Our fanbase absolutely has to cease and desist with the bullshit every off-season of (a) how great we are and (b) how we will win our 7th national championship in football this coming season, or certainly the year after. It is counter-productive, and sends all the wrong message to a program who in fact is # 21 in won/lost nationally and # 5 in The SEC these long grueling 7 years and counting we are suffering through, after quite a great start by Mark Richt when he first got here of over 81 % win percentage going into the 2005 season – down to only 68 % win percentage after 2007.
(17) We have to demand more of Jere Morehead, who seemingly is a do nothing president. He has not made one damned statement or even offered-up one damnable point to our Athletics’ Department since taking over. He ultimately is responsible for all this, whether he likes it or not. Our facilities are in shambles because it has no support from the top, or 1 would not have to go into restrooms at Sanford Stadium in the sorry state the men’s bathrooms are in. We need someone with vision as president to get our Athletics’ Department back on track.
(18) Our head coach in football must explain himself a couple of weeks ago after losing to three (3) more lesser teams with nowhere near his talent on his team 2014, that here at UGA we adhere to something higher than winning. Something more important than winning. The freaking hell we do. Winning is his Calling. If Mark Richt thinks his Calling is OTHER THAN WINNING FOOTBALL GAMES, he needs to go do THAT Calling. ImYourHuckleberry yesterday said that losing an average of 4 games a season is unacceptable, and we’ve been losing MORE than 4 games a season average for 7 years now and counting.
(19) We make continued mistakes in clock management and an Athletics’ Director who knew anything about clock management would insist the entire coaching staff take a course in clock management. Routinely, we just do not get it, even against our biggest rivals.
(20) We make continued mistakes in basic simple football game coaching. Basic choices. We blow it. We blow it again and again and whine to the press afterwards that we made a mistake. Again. Again, an Athletics’ Director who knows anything about basic football decision making as head coach would have long ago sat Mark Richt down and gone over the decision process in game decisions so that he can recognize them when they come up and implement what is the right choice. We certainly have not done that.
(21) We must do something to get this Attrition Onslaught under control. It has continued unabated for 7 seasons and has directly impacted our football team every single year for 7 years in a row, and counting. While it sends the wrong message, and is not the problem but multiple incidents in drugs for a scholarship recruit here, we should nonetheless have an across the board equal policy to all other at least SEC teams. If this is completed by forcing The SEC to have uniform drug policies, fine. The 1st offender rule is too harsh in an open records’ state such as Georgia, when the student-athlete should be given proper counseling immediately even if he/she is suspected of drug abuse. They are too young, and even in Colorado they would be subject to arrest based on their ages. But, college is not to get high but to get an education. And football scholarship athletes are not here to get high but to get an education and to win. They and we cannot win if they are not on the field playing.
(22) We are down to 72 scholarship recruits of the previous 118 signed scholarship football recruits, who with a redshirt season would’ve played Louisville. This is so unacceptable that not making it a separate point and goal of this down football program would be remiss. We just signed another 28. We must do a far better job from Jere Morehead and from Greg McGarity to get this under control on Mark Richt’s football team. We send all the wrong messages from Mark Richt himself when he for example tells the players he just kicked-off the team that he Loves Them. Jere Morehead and Greg McGarity must step in and make the points directly to the scholarship recruits that they must obey the rules. Telling them that they are here to get an education and to win, neither of which can they do if they are not playing and that they will not play if they do not obey the rules here at UGA.
(23) We have to do better than for 7 years averaging more than 4 losses a season. Obviously implementing these numbered items for improvement would do great wonders alone in reducing the number of losses to not MORE than 4 losses a season for 7 seasons and counting. It’s ridiculous to consider this acceptable !
(24) Play our starters on Special Teams like the NFL does. Stop this bullshit of playing every back-up and walk-on on Special Teams. We have no clue on special teams, while we know that over 100 college 1-A FBS football programs have a Special Teams’ Coach. We do not know what we’re doing on Special Teams. Basic fundamental break-downs. And, we have a general lack of talent on the field against the absolute stars of our opponents who have a Special Teams’ Coach and who practice their players who they do play on Special Teams to do what they do against us. They are killing us at this phase of the game as direct results.
(25) We get way too much bad press here at UGA nowadays. It is all we do get besides bullshit blog posts bragging on how well we’re doing and how great the recruits are. The recruits have been top-notched in their rankings and this season is no better than the other years. We are not a better program 2015 because of the caliber of players we just signed. We have averaged # 9 recruiting classes and that is verified as the 2nd best nationally and we have 82 NFL Draft Picks – both in the entire Mark Richt era. Both of these are 2nd best nationally 2001-2015. So, talent has not been the issue around here, but the 24 other reasons listed above.
” We (mostly) agree that we need to win more games, not lose to lesser teams, and have better winning % especially in the years since 2007. ”
We do ?
Or, we feel that there is nothing wrong under the sun with our program right now ? That we are doing great ?
Which is it ?
Censoring opinions of fact because you do not like the facts is certainly not going to fix the issues.
The issues are plain. They are clear. We, as fans, send the message to the coaches and players that they are great.
Then, after 2007 these are not on Mark Richt’s To-Do List ? Seriously ?
(1) not have only 72 remaining of 118 signed who with redshirt would’ve played last game. How do you fix that ? Well, you fix that by teaching the players to obey the rules. Conflicting messages that we love them, when we kick them off the team, is not teaching them to obey the rules. The head coach is sending mixed messages to the players. There is no excuse for giving Mark Richt all the credit for signing these 118 recruits who with redshirt play in the last game, to have only 72.
You get that, or you got something else to say about my mama ?
It has nothing to do with my mama and every thing to do with the lax discipline (teaching to obey the rules) followed by harsh punishment (which is not discipline.)
(2) not lose so many games against bowl teams after 2007 that our win % against them is only 54 %
We are unprepared for many games after 2007. We have the superior talent and are lax about our preparation. We take opponents lightly – teams we should be beating. We make bullshit in-game decisions such as wasted time-outs, not calling time-outs, not trying to use all the clock we can use to score against teams who consider us their # 1 Rival. We do this all the time. No one discusses it. No one suggests it’s an issue that we have poor clock management all the time. No one wants to discuss it. Just tell everyone we’re # 11 all-time in 1-A wins; and, that we recruit 2nd best nationally; and brag about what Mark Richt did 8 to 14 seasons’ ago, instead of saying what it is we’re in fact doing after 2007. We lost to 3 teams this last season who we should never have lost to. Shall we discuss the in game decisions by a coach 14 seasons now our head coach ? 1st goal 4-yard line and Hutson Mason who should never have been our Starting QB 2014 tries to throw a pass, when he is incapable of throwing the ball 14-yards down field out of the end zone. Mark Richt said he was wrong. Yes, he was. All our players told the press we took a team who considers us their # 1 Rival and whom Mark Richt is 5-9 against, lightly. Mark Richt told the press to tell his players to shut-up. You are ahead against another team who considers us their # 1 Rival by 3 points with 13 ticks remaining. What do you do, squib kick ? Mark Richt said he was wrong. Yes, he was. We cannot beat our way out of a wet paper bag, and it’s damn frustrating reading blogs tell us how freaking great we are. We’re anything but. We’ve been anything but after 2007 with a 54 % win percentage over bowl teams after 2007.
Did you get that damn it ?
You knew we’re 54 % win percentage against bowl teams after 2007 ?
You got some bullshit you want to put on ME for saying it out loud ?
I am freaking tired of it.
You seem totally satisfied with it.
(3) not have 29 losses the latest 7-year period, an average of more than 4 losses a season. You want a way where we can stop losing more than 4 games a season on the average after 2007 ? Hire a damn football coach who gives a shit.
And, quit telling him he’s friqin’ great.
He was when he 1st got here. He hasn’t been after 2007.
(4) not have so many games lost against less-talented teams who even with their win are unranked teams, 10 such after 2007 and 2 of those again in 2014. You want a solution to that from me ? This is my problem that I point it out to everyone ? Or, this is Mark Richt’s problem on his To-Do List ?
Which is it ?
You tell me ?
We’re not ready to play. We have 72 remaining to even suit-up of 118 signed to suit-up the latest game. This is a serious grievous issue that is pervasive across Mark Richt’s program after 2007. You cannot play winning football when you are not on the field. Credit is given to Mark Richt every February for signing all these guys. He’s had 82 NFL draft picks, and more 2015. Only Southern California has more. He’s had the average # 9 Scout.com recruiting ranking. Again, only Southern California has done better. We have plenty of talent and give Mark Richt the credit for signing them here. That is only half the battle. Once here, he has to coach them. Coaching is defined as getting more with less : Here, we get less with more. Georgie tek averages # 52 recruiting ranking and they beat the average # 9 recruits. Now, their coach does not have a losing record against us at Sanford. Mark Richt’s roster management is the worst in the nation. He has the 2nd best talent and # 21 in won/lost record after 2007. That’s not my issue. That’s not my problem. That is Mark Richt’s won/lost record which is not some damn stat but his won/lost record. Get off my back, and put the pressure where you say the pressure belongs. Not on me, but on Mark Richt.
Get with the program.
(5) not be 2-13 vs teams ranked AP Poll Top 10 for the seasons after 2007. We not only lose to lousy unranked under talented teams but we cannot compete with the top teams, either.
Get over yourself that you have made some freaking point to me about this, when this should be discussed openly by us, as it is by our opponents. If we’re unprepared for a team who lost 11 of their most recent 13 games who calls us their # 1 Rival and who Mark Richt is 5-9 against, then what the friq do you expect of the same coach against the top teams ?
His record after 2007 speaks for itself.
(6) not be 11-23 vs teams ranked for the seasons after 2007. This is a deceiving record as it is because if you play a 1-AA FCS team, that game does not count. Unless you lose. So all these games we lose to unranked teams has to be ADDED to this record of 34 teams, 23 of whom we’ve lost to who are simply ranked in either the AP or Coaches’ Polls for the seasons after 2007. He really therefore has played 44 games after 2007 leaving his wins in only 11 of the 44 games against ranked teams in either the AP or Coaches’ Polls for these latest 7 seasons after 2007 because he’s lost to 10 unranked teams after 2007.
Do not be sitting there asking me what to do to fix all this.
That is not my job.
It’s also not my job to be winning all these games you say SCDawg Mark Richt should be winning and isn’t at the rate you say he should be winning.
I am not paid $ 4 million dollars a season to be our head coach. He’s not supposed to be losing all these games, and you damn well know it.
Cease with your bullshit to me about his friqin’ losses.
I call it like it is.
I get it out in the open.
I know the recruits know it. I read Todd Gurley II say that he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre. I read Chris Conley say the same. I read our players say this all the time. The recruits know it. I am not hurting recruiting by bringing it out in the open. We do not beat the teams we are supposed to beat, do not compete with the top teams, and overall lose over 4 games a season after 2007.
If this is acceptable to you, then, kiss my ass – that is not what you said. Instead, you’ve put the onus on me to explain to you what you say is unacceptable. I do not believe you believe it’s unacceptable. Otherwise, you would say : Yes, sir – Mark Richt has done a poor job of it after 2007 and I agree with you Thomas Brown, sir ! He needs to step up his game getting more with less, instead of less with more. And, honestly, I did not know that Mark Richt has been this anemic against bowl teams after 2007 that his win percentage is only 54 %. If it’s not acceptable that our win percentage after 2007 against bowl teams is only 54 % then stand-up and say it. And, do not blame me for his failures on and off the field to have his team prepared, to have his players he should be having play, in fact play. And do not blame me for his head coaching decisions. During these 14 seasons before this one, he has lost every year to teams he should have never lost to. It costs us dearly every year. He does a poor job, as you say, especially after 2007, SCDawg, sir.
(7) not be 57 % win percentage in bowl games after 2007. Mark Richt’s record away from Sanford after 2007 sucks. Overall, away and at home he once, had a 81 % win percentage. Now, after 2007, he’s 68 % win percentage, overall. He once was great against teams who that season made the AP Poll or Coaches’ Poll Top 25. Now, after 2007, he won twice only. We have had 49 games not at Sanford and lost 21. The games we’ve won, have been against cupcakes – except for 2 wins out of 49 games not at Sanford after 2007 ! It’s unacceptable and damn embarrassing to read hogwash excuses for it every year by the DISNEYdawgs.com fans of our program who actually truthfully believe he is doing well. No. No, he’s not. We do not beat the top teams away from Sanford, and only because he was extremely frustrated as all of us were with 2014, did he even try to win this bowl game. A trophy for everyone has been his mantra. Mark Richt does not give a shit about winning. He actually believes his calling is to be preacher man. He actually has conflicting mixed messages about players who brought us so much bad press all 2014 that he told them each he loved them. What the F is that ? His calling is to be our head football coach at the rate of $ 4 million a year.
We do NOT have something more important that we adhere to here at Georgia than winning, as Mark Richt told us 2014.
And, you know what I love more than that ? Reading DISNEYdawgs.com tell me about my mama when my post is quite plain exactly in fact what we are doing nowadays after 2007.
Can you imagine what this off-season would be like right now had he lost this last bowl game, as he did 3 of the previous 4 bowl games ? I wrote on my blog where I get to have my damn say unabated, just as I give you here, the Absolute Right to have your say sir, that he took the sour taste out of our mouth for 2014. A season of what could’ve been. But, wasn’t because once again he lost to 3 teams who were far less-talented but better coached against us than we offered-up against them. In each case, Mark Richt discussed the single issue in each game that cost us the game. In 2 of the 3, he admitted he was wrong. In the 3rd loss to Florida who beat the shit out of us, he told the players who ran to the press telling everyone we took them lightly to shut the hell up.
That’s what you really want from me.
To shut the hell up.
Bury our heads in the damn sand.
Good Luck with that !
(8) not be 4-21 against teams higher ranked than us in the AP or Coaches’ Polls for the years after 2007.
” We (mostly) agree that we need to win more games, not lose to lesser teams, and have better winning % especially in the years since 2007. ” SCDawg
There is something here besides winning that’s important ? Or we need more clear precise goals as our To-Do List – not bullshit ? Which is it ? Our goal is to quit losing for 7 years now more than 4 losses a season average ? How do we teach them to obey the rules not punish them harshly as if that is teaching them to obey the rules ? You’re clueless and more to the point purposely painting Mark Richt as not responsible for that which only he is responsible. He runs a lax ship and only punishes harshly. He doesn’t know how to tell them to obey the rules.
Get the Picture says Mark Richt’s To Do List is to score more touchdowns in the red zone when Bluto says that surprises him ! And, not do anything about all the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off that led to having only 72 suit up for the latest game of the 118 he signed who with redshirt would’ve been playing instead. And nothing to do with our abysmal 54 % win percentage against bowl teams the entire 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era – after 2007.
Nothing on Bluto’s Mark Richt To-Do List for 2015 about not losing to unranked teams as he’s done 10 times after 2007. Nothing on Bluto’s Mark Richt To-Do List for 2015 about him being # 50 in the nation at beating top 15 teams time of game after 2007 when we are all-time the # 11 program in wins. How can this be that THESE are NOT on Mark Richt’s To-Do List pray tell ?
Well punks how ?
Mark Richt needs to fix this shit. What is the fix for this shit ? Obviously I am saying it is Mark Richt. Aren’t I ? Are you that God Damn Stupid that you can’t see I am saying that the fix to this crap is that Mark Richt just has to go – this God Damn Friqin’ Hero of yours- not mine ?
You do not fool me that you do not see this is what I am saying.
You are just acting stupid.
And, because you DO NOT WANT TO DISCUSS THE ISSUES I am bringing up about your freaking hero and not mine. Why ? Because you know I am right if you did discuss any 1 of these individual points I make that you would agree with me. You do not know these points. If you did you would TALK ABOUT THEM as items Mark Richt needs to fix.
You do NOT know them.
They are NOT insignificant or meaningless.
They are ALL instead his win/loss record after 2007.
You know ?
Against top 15 teams after 2007 us # 11 all-time in wins.
Against unranked teams after 2007.
You know ?
With his average # 8 recruiting rankings.
Against teams who even go to a bowl game the season he plays them after 2007.
You know ?
The ones he likely as not loses to when they are bowl teams after 2007.
Quit telling me how great he was 2001-2007. We all rooted for him then me included no matter how you try to paint me TODAY on that way back then 8 to 14 years’ ago.
He has LOST IT.
Against ALL these groups.
It’s not a mini-record.
It’s what he’s doing NOW – these latest 7 years making up the entire 2nd half his career here.
Quit ignoring the point.
The more you do, the more you cement MY POINTS in everyone’s mind.
Surely by now you know you are LOSING this argument and me winning it, don’t you ?
Sure you do.
These are his real To-Do List items not that he needs to JUST ONLY score more TD in the red zone.
So why is it then that NONE of you can discuss what the issues are ?
Because I do not say it in a fashion in which you can look at a sentence and say you could re-word it better ? So could I. So what ? That is not what this is about and your stupid attempts to IGNORE all the facts or act like you knew them all anyway when you did not, just leaves me making my point and leaves me making my point which you make yourself out the village idiot for not addressing.
My points are here.
You attempting to avoid my points leaves ONLY ME MAKING MY POINTS of what should have been on Bluto’s To-Do List for Mark Richt for 2015 and did not.
Doesn’t it ?
Well punks ?
You’re just all a God Damn Bunch of NOTHING BUT INTERNET BULLIES the freaking lot of you.
These pervasive issues about Mark Richt are going to cost him his job.
I will see to it.
You want to stop me seeing to it.
This is where we are.
You are going to lose.
You IGNORE me at your own risk because I am making these points about him as coach and don’t give a shit if he is a fine man. Nothing on Bluto’s Mark Richt To-Do List for 2015 about teams who play in a bowl game the season he plays them which he is after 2007 likely as not to lose by the way. Nothing about getting the ever-living shit kicked out of him after 2007 every year by more than 3 TD when he never did that 2001-2007 either. Just that I can NOT say this on his blog, you can say the problem is my English or my mother and TRY TO IGNORE these points I DO BY GOD MAKE, and that he ONLY THINKS THE ONLY ISSUE is instead his bullshit Mark Richt To-Do List for 2015 that we have to do better in the red zone scoring TD. Yeah, that’s the point. He’s a dumbass for even attempting to say that and does not have the balls to hear me take him to task on same on his blog where I made him look like shit so he banned me at your request because YOU ALL – as a group there – think we have some other goal besides winning here. We don’t. You can’t. You’re wrong. He’s shallow and off-point and he is wrong that Mark Richt only needs to score more TD in the red zone. It is a LOT more pervasive across our football program than that shallow bullshit analysis and if Bluto and his minions don’t wake-up he will be FIRED for what I have been saying after 2007 about him. He could have looked at ANY of my posts to know what Mark Richt’s To-Do List IS for 2015. Any of them. You can read my points quite clearly. You just want to act stupid that you can’t. Sure you can. You do NOT LIKE WHAT I SAY not how I say it. You can ALL stick it up your assholes. I will make my point. I do make my point and you have NO POINT.
Whether you like it or not I am changing the court of public opinion about what a fine man Mark Richt is. He is a fine man and shitty coach after 2007. Wake-up. You have FAILED to shut me up and I am WINNING. That is what bothers you.
Bluto is the character’s name in the movie – not any damn freaking senator. He showed-up online a few years’ back now in the Online Athens’ forum crying for censorship then, too. Today, he writes a Mark Richt’s To-Do List. Ah, bullshit Bluto is all I can say to such utter nonsense, Bluto !
(1) Mark Richt is # 21 in Won/Record after 2007 – the entire 2nd Half of Mark Richt era
Teams such as Florida, Southern California and Nebraska who have been abysmal, are all better than Mark Richt these latest 7 years now to-date.
And, Bluto says that Mark Richt’s To-Do List is scoring better when we are down there ready to score and that ” given how solid Georgia’s offense was running the ball ” that surprises him. Dimwit. Dumbass.
How about beating teams we should not be losing to, you freaking dumbass Bluto ?
Wouldn’t that be up there on the Mark Richt To-Do List ?
He’s 5-9 vs Florida, and let yet another underwhelming Florida team beat him.
He lost to Georgie tek to give their coach now not even a losing record against us at our house.
(2) He made a quarterback our Starting Quarterback who lost to 3 unranked teams and to lowlife # 52 average recruiting ranking Georgie tek – 4 inexplicable losses.
But, when we get down there ready to score, we should do better Bluto surmises – bless his heart – despite our awesome OL and running game.
How about our damned Quarterback # 88 in Passing Offense Bluto dumbshit ? Nothing about that, either ? If we had a passing game, we would have really racked-up down there in the red zone scoring touchdowns.
(3) Instead, we’re # 88 in Passing Offense nationally.
And, # 67 in Passing Yards per completion. If Mike Bobo had not taken that demotion to way out there in the snow with a program who has a losing record all-time, Mark Richt would have never done anything about his offense which Bluto says is anemic inside the red zone actually scoring as Mark Richt’s To-Do List.
(4) Now that Penn State has been restored to its previous win total which the NCAA took away from them in 2012 and added back last week, UGA is now outside the Top 10 All-Time in Wins again back to # 11 All-Time.
Instead, Mark Richt has 29 Losses after 2007, an average of MORE than 4 losses per season for these 7 latest current seasons.
But, Bluto says that in the red zone, Mark Richt should score touchdowns more frequently.
God Almighty Bluto ! What a dumbass liar you are to not discuss what we’ve been doing these latest 7 years and the reasons for it, which are by the way the attrition on our roster.
In the latest football game, we had only 72 of the 118 signed scholarship recruits who with a redshirt season would’ve been playing this game. None were drafted early by the NFL in the 2014 NFL Draft.
The attrition has been so damn devastating that teams who recruited nowhere near us have dominated us. How do you explain away Florida’s win over us this season or South Carolina either for that matter ? Georgie tek was supposed to beat us with their recruiting so sorry compared to our talent ? No !
But, Bluto says nothing about this either, just that when we’re down there we need to score more touchdowns.
(5) Mark Richt’s To-Do List is quite a bit different from the bullshit presented by Bluto this day, I can assure the dumbass.
He has not won a national championship yet the coaches who have won these 15 years now average only 3 and a half years at the school before they won one.
Mark Richt has 2002 when unranked Florida of Ron Zook mind you held him to -0- of 13 on 3rd Down Conversions, a hapless Florida team. And, Mark Richt has 2007 when not only did the vols blow us out but that we also lost 2007 to 6-6 South Carolina who did not even go to a damned bowl game. Of course, there is 2012 when South Carolina beat us like a drum 35 to 7. And, 2012 we have that wondrous do not spike the ball by Mark Richt as well ! These are the high water marks for Mark Richt. The best of the best. Mark Richt just has bad luck ? Bullshit, he sucks and you know it.
Bad Luck, my Ass !
And, so he censors posts to “his blog” and calls me out saying I am not a fan of The Georgia Bulldogs.
Hogwash, he isn’t and never has been.
I’ve known this twit Bluto for 15 years now online. He does not want the countering viewpoint and for smoke and mirrors, he shall reply to this reply to his bullshit post of Mark Richt’s To-Do List with there is something wrong with me ! No, his post sucks and even he Bluto senator of nothing, would readily admit that my discussion here is far more hitting the nail on the head for Mark Richt’s To-Do List ! Don’t you Bluto ? Facebook says you have to know the person face-to-face. I think not. We all have many dealings with folks whom we speak with every day, and whom we send back and forth e-mails all the time to transact our business, and none of these are our friends ? Bullshit Facebook. Bullshit. We do not “KNOW” these people ? Ridiculous proposition. Bluto is a guy who is into censorship and into power and authority – wanting to tell everyone else how to live their lives – he having so screwed-up his own. Daily in every blog post, Bluto, has come-on titles designed to get you to click the URL Link to see just what the hell it is his blog is about that day.
What is Bluto’s blog about ?
Well, # 1 it is a Mark Richt Apologist blog. If that is not obvious.
And, # 2 it is a blog about anything but that which are our woes, anything but that which are our bucket list. Afraid to bring it out in the open, and unwilling to discuss the real issues you get red herrings instead.
Bluto spends his days reading a blog such as this one here with meat in it, and then he “WRITES” a blog about it, putting it down and saying how worthless the blog’s point is. He oozes censorship and unfair play, that he can say whatever the Hell he wants to say but Heavens Above, do not allow the altering viewpoint.
That is Bluto – the one you call senator when the character was called Bluto the entire movie.
(6) NEVER does Bluto have a point of his own. Never ! Always just steal someone else’s idea and present it as his own blog post of the day with inane discussion of the point of the actual point-making blog post.
# 63 in Sacks by our Defense and Bluto tells you to your glee drink the damn Kool-Aid that we have all these mighty pass rushers returning to our team 2015. We do not sack opposing quarterbacks, now do we Bluto ? Why say that bullshit either then bubba Bluto ?
Come-on titles to stolen point-making blog posts where you throw your 2 cents worth in, all how great Mark Richt.
No, he isn’t.
Is he ?
He was when he 1st got here, but what he did 8 to 14 seasons’ ago has little resemblance to what he’s been doing since, now does it ?
Add in to that that he has also lost to 10 unranked teams in this timeframe and you have a horrid situation requiring it to be up there at the top of Mark Richt’s To-Do List, you dumbass !
Think just maybe you failed to hit the nail on the head ?
As always ?
Only 2012 blown out by South Carolina and then the don’t spike it in front of me, and this past season when we lost to 3 far less talented teams has Mark Richt made the AP Poll Top 10 after 2007, clearly our goal as a program # 11 All-Time in Wins. But, no that’s not listed – or, even hinted as a To-Do List action item for Mark Richt !
Mark Richt is 65 % win percentage away from Sanford after 2007 to-date and no To-Do List discussion by you sir ? Seriously ?
54 % win percentage vs Bowl Teams after 2007 to-date and not worthy on your To-Do List ? Come on you bullshit artist of no substance and just censorship how great you are and your friqin’ To-Do List for Mark Richt !
57 % win percentage bowl game after 2007 and again no mention. Why is that Bluto ? You that stupid ?
Vs Higher YrRnk Tms: 25-(26.9%)-(4-21-0)–0.160 after 2007 to-date
4 wins 21 losses to teams after 2007 to-date who are higher ranked in either the AP or Coaches’ Polls for these latest 7 seasons making up the entire 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era, and Bluto says this is not worthy of discussion on his blog post of that which is in his humble opinion the Mark Richt To-Do List.
They are the same posters who say our 29 losses the most recent 7 years is not all that bad, too.
They are the 1st posters who call for censorship.
They say that other teams tell our recruits about all this.
Do you really think the recruits do not know all this ?
That it was a long long long long long long long time ago that we were considered elite.
They say we were great 2012, 2007 and 2002.
2002 we lost for God’s sake to a team not ranked who held us to zero for 13 on 3rd Down Conversions. Mark Richt was not jobbed 2002. He wasn’t ready to play a team who calls us their # 1 Rival. He is 5-9 against them. That was Ron Zook for crying out loud.
2007, we lost to 2 more such teams. One South Carolina for example was 6-6 and not even in a damn bowl game, but we lost to them. The vols blew us out of the water – destroyed us.
2012 we lost to South Carolina 7 to 35. Convenient how you forget all this, isn’t it ? I am sure you even have an excuse for Aaron Murray asking Mark Richt 3 times should he spike it ? Oh, yeah, I just love me 2012. Such bullshit.
Hear a lot about our overzealous drug policy, how bad our admin is, how indoor practice facility only 1 other SEC does not have, and the great recruits coming-in next, new coaches – hear a lot about all of these.
Know what you do not hear a lot about ?
That we’re # 21 in won/lost record the most current latest most-recent 7-year period.
They also do not talk about all the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off – except to whine about our written drug policy which is only different in 1st offenses from everyone else’s.
Our drug issues have been repeated violators who would have met the same fate at every other school by their policies.
They act like the police cover-up stuff about other teams’ issues, but we’ve covered-up as well. Haven’t we ?
Do you remember our police chief press interview about Nick Marshall et al ? He told us all that no one contacted the police. That there was over $ 500 stolen in cash from the locker room. That makes that a felony. Police never notified.
We have a ton a damn excuses for 29 losses.
It takes a lot of excuses to cover-up for 29 losses.
10 of the 29 are to teams who either were not ranked at time of the game or for the season, or both. That just the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era.
Remember when he used to win away from Sanford ?
Not so now, is it ?
We have a horrendous record away from Sanford nowadays against teams ranked for the seasons we lost to them in away.
Has talent been the issue here ?
No, it hasn’t been. We’ve had plenty of talent. Take South Carolina, Nebraska, Florida and Georgie tek – the latest 4 losses (by Hutson Mason), all 4 of those losses were to far less talented teams.
Was talent any issue in these most recent 4 losses ?
Averaging over 4 losses per season for 7 seasons now.
No. Talent was here, but the coaching was not.
Do we need to expand our stadium ? Sure we do. Been many years since we talked about making it into a bowl with a view of Baxter Street dorms over the bridge. Nothing has happened.
Whined about IPF. Nothing done there either, yet even Vandie has a 120-yard field with a 6-lane track outside that 180,000 square feet – for all sports.
Now only 1 other SEC team does not have one.
But, we still have 29 damned losses the latest 7 years.
It’s all this bad press.
No. Not me. I am not angry and upset. You are complacent while I am not satisfied in the least bit with any of this.
We’re Top 10 All-Time in 1-A wins as a Program.
We find only 3 other states produce more high school recruits who go on to the NFL than we do.
Talent, ladies and gentlemen is not going to fix any of this. Is it ?
The class coming-in will end up # 8. It’s always like that. That’s good recruiting. Coaching ? Not so good.
So wait until new OL and new OC get on same page as 2nd year DC.
Wait until we get a Special Teams’ coach.
Wait until Hell freaking freezes over.
The issues remain the same.
Yes, the AD is weak. Yes, he has a horrendous record in football on his watch.
For the talent handed this coach, he is the dead last worst coach in all of America.
He fails to teach the boys to obey the rules.
He fails to prepare for the easy opponents who are lesser than we.
He fails against the top teams.
He fails to win and loses too many.
He doesn’t care.
Do I want us to go undefeated every year ?
What kind of hogwash is that ?
More of the make excuses crowd.
More of the you settle for nothingness – mediocrity.
Do you realize we have 6 wins out of the last 22 games away from Sanford against teams ranked for that season we beat them or not ?
Then, why do you brag about his away record ?
He sucks on the road against the top teams.
He sucks at teaching them to obey the rules.
He frankly sucks at hiring a coaching staff and I told him this 10 years ago that he was costing us with his sorry staffs.
Now, he has a good staff.
Will this change anything ?
I know this that he is still the head coach and still makes these decisions such as Joe Cox Starting QB over Zach Mettenberger NFL QB, Joe Tereshinski III Starting QB over Matthew Stafford NFL QB, and Hutson Mason over Jacob Park and Brice Ramsey – both of who also are NFL QB.
He still will not teach them to obey the rules.
We will brag on the recruiting class.
They will come here and be no different because they in fact are no better and no worse than the ones already handed this coach.
We have top facilities (other than Gym and IPF.)
We have fan support unmatched in any sport anywhere.
None of the football schools up where we are in football come close to the education at my alma mater here at UGA.
We’re in the Sun Belt – the Bible Belt. Everyone wants to be here.
We have 7 million now they count here. Loads uncounted.
We buy our merchandise. Everywhere we all wear our Bulldogs’ memorabilia we all buy. We say Go Dawgs ! to each other as we pass. Our vehicles are clearly UGA vehicles.
Our homes are.
We hang on every news.
We follow year round.
Can’t even talk about the men losing in double overtime or women winning on road against really a pretty good Auburn team, despite making like 14 baskets.
All we think eat and drink is Bulldogs.
All of us.
The truth of the matter is it is all we really care about.
$ 100,000 and counting for me. That’s just to be able to spend all my monies on our team.
It’s all I talk about.
It’s all any of us talk about.
It’s almost all we think about.
Seriously now we average over 4 losses for 7 years and that’s not that bad really for us ?
Mark Richt had bad luck ?
Other coaches’ teams – 14 others – got lucky and Mark Richt did not ?
Are you a fool ?
Do you really believe when LSU won 7 games against Top 25 teams 2007 that we deserved to be in the NC game and not them with our 2 losses to 2 horrible teams one who blew us out by three (3) touchdowns and the other who was 6-6 and not even in a bowl game ? Was that bad luck or bad coaching ?
I want an answer to that ?
Do you really believe it was bad luck in 2002 either ? That a team not even in the Top 25 even with their win over us held us to zero (0) of thirteen (13) on 3rd Down and beat us while 2 teams went undefeated ? That’s bad luck or bad coaching ? Damn it answer the freaking question ?
2012 was bad luck ? Or bad coaching ? South Carolina beat the ever-living shit out of us 7-35 and then our QB is smart enough to repeat the question in front of me to Mark Richt not once or twice, but 3 times : Spike It ? Not liking the answer, he kept asking and Mark Richt kept telling him the same, no do not spike it. You even have the damn balls to still today try on some new excuse for that one.
Squib kick with 3-point miraculous lead with 13 ticks on the clock ? God Almighty.
1st and goal and Mark Richt says now he would’ve hammered it. Jesus Christ is all I can say with Todd Gurley II and the crowd all knowing it would be.
Mark Richt makes no excuses for all these myriad of bullshit seasons all because he is a dumbass.
And, you ?
Where do you stand ?
We have only 72 of the 118 signed to play this season who were left and could even play in the latest game. We have an outstanding large class coming-in ? Duh.
We over-sign because we have too much attrition.
We stay in the bad press.
Mostly because every off-season YOU brag on the staff and players and then reality hits averaging more than 4 losses per season for 7 years now.
You are proud to say that you indeed are a DisneyDawgs.com ?
Why don’t you brag some more about what he did 8 to 14 years’ ago now ? I loved it then too. That’s not what we have anymore around here nowadays, is it ?
Not all that bad losing more than 4 games a season for 7 seasons now ?
Wait until the latest coach added fixes his won/loss for him ?
Wait until the next batch of recruits fixes his won/loss for him ?
Wait until he has an IPF ?
Wait until the admin does not have HIS won/loss record as their won/loss record since he took over as his boss ?
He isn’t being paid enough ?
His prayer circle staff was not being paid enough ? The OL coach at Alabama makes more than our OC ? That’s the damned freaking problem around here ?
I am fed-up with it. And, you are not ! It’s his damned religion, if you ask me ?
Brian Schottenheimer loves college football the most, and intends on being head coach at the right place. He’s turned down head coaching jobs in the NFL twice already because they were the wrong place at that time. His dad is mostly famous in the NFL as a head coach for losing in the play-offs, and winning in the regular season; but Marty played linebacker. Brian is a quarterback of some note. He obviously sees the offense run here by Mark Richt, and believes that this will further his advancement – either here as Mark Richt’s replacement, or clearly at least to somewhere else in college as head coach at the right place and right time. Connections remain the mainstay of this 41-year old. While his dad is ESPN announcer we see on TV, his dad’s coaching tree is all connections. His dad is only 71, so he was 30 when Brian was born.
Brian has seen it all both as a quarterback playing the game, and coaching including college and NFL.
He knows everyone. His choices under him here will be future great coaches in their own rights. Maybe better than Brian. The book is not complete on Brian yet; but his lineage bodes well for his bright future in his prime now.
Jacob Park, Brice Ramsey, and Faton Bauta should do very well transitioning easily to the new OC, and this is now the 4th very good hire by Mark Richt. Mark Richt is so tenured now that he is developing his own connections now because he is such a likable guy.
Mark Richt has surrounded himself with only those who recruit well. Schottenheimer is another. Future Quarterback recruits after 2015 season will see this as a huge big plus, while his success at offensive coordinator is solid and not spectacular. He could use a spectacular but frankly you can seldom be head coach in college without being Offensive Coordinator.
Head Coach Brian Schottenheimer is around the corner now.
All-America Nick Chubb 2015, Sony Michel, and the stable of running backs 2015, are what brought Schottenheimer here. That and the veteran 4-Starters Returning Offensive Line along with the great situation at both Tight Ends and Wide Receivers.
There is no question that he gets a jump-start being here January 7 with a month before Signing Day although many of our top targets are now already enrolled. They all have to be thrilled.
I know I am.
There were times when Mike Bobo just did not get it.
He left me frustrated.
He made some nice calls, but too frequently left too much on the table, seemingly not understanding the objective was actually converting on 3rd downs – something he was particularly inept at – despite all the talent handed him.
This could not be a better position for Brian to be in. It is a perfect fit. It would be interesting to hear who called Mark for him ?
We should hire a lot more from the NFL at UGA.
The NFL is a different game than college and not as much fun.
And, this is where the water hits the wheel – not to be confused with the senior circuit’s huge success as the top fan-based sport worldwide.
If you are blinders on about the NFL, then you never do anything but look down at college football. But, I have to share with you as a long-suffering Falcons’ fan and fan of other NFL teams before the Falcons got here in my youth, that there is something about the grind of the NFL that leaves you wanting something more, something better – something more exciting than being caught-up in the daily grind of the middling NFL clubs.
There is only 1 Super Bowl Champion. Anything else, as Marty Schottenheimer attests, is really just going through the motions. The money in the NFL is really little difference from that Brian can get in college. He’s done both – back and forth. This is what he prefers.
In the NFL, if your team has poor draft picks, you might have no running back, no OL, and no defense. How much fun is that ? You get top picks each year, but that takes a long time. Ask Detroit.
In college, if you hire-on to a place that has running backs, quarterbacks, receivers, tight ends, OL, and lots of pieces on defense, along with a solid kicking game, you can make a name for yourself and achieve your ambitions. Brian’s are to be college head coach.
How good a college head coach will Brian be ?
You have to surround yourself with connections and have in-fact a real staff.
For far too long here, Mark Richt did anything but.
That not only has resulted in not only consistently losing to mediocre teams with far less talent than he, but also recently – if 7 latest years is recently – this has also manifested itself with the utter lack of wins against top teams away from Sanford.
For the talent he has, he has to have this kind of a staff that he has now.
Not a prayer circle.
I think Brian knows a quarterback when he sees one.
# 58 on 3rd Down Conversions with all this talent
# 88 in Passing Offense
left us with 3 losses to far-less talented teams 2014-2015.
We could not continue with such a poorly-conceived offense – not with all this wasted talent on it. Mike Bobo is at a bad place at the wrong time, a move Brian would never make. Bobo gave-up a better job to take a demotion, while Brian is at the right place at the right time and has a far brighter future directly as a result. Will Brian move on ? Yes, but he might be back too. In the meantime, we are a better football team this morning than we were at # 58 on 3rd Down Conversions because of our # 88 Passing Offense. I expect Brian to decide which quarterbacks to play and when. He backed-up Danny Wuerffel which means he saw good action for Steve Spurrier, and that is what I fully expect of him while he’s here, too. Obviously.
I predict that Brian Schottenheimer will be the Offensive Coordinator of the Year, and that our Rivals hate that we have someone who knows which type of play to call based on down and distance for a damn change.
This is a fine staff Mark Richt has and he has great talent, lacking nowhere 2015.
Of course, if Mark Richt CONTINUES to make all the decisions herein listed as Brian Schottenheimer’s choices instead, you will blame Mark Richt for making the wrong hire ! And, say that he hasn’t done well as OC anywhere he’s ever been, as I say here too. Mark Richt is so stubborn !
Georgia beat # 21 Louisville who won at Notre Dame who beat LSU Music City Bowl
Florida beat East Carolina who beat Virginia Tech when they were # 17
South Carolina beat supposedly rebuilt Miami of Florida leaving ACC 4-7 in bowl games
Missouri beat Big 10 Minnesota in the re-named Citrus bowl
Tennessee beat Iowa who lost by 2 points to Wisconsin 24-26 who beat Auburn Outback Bowl by 3
5-0 SEC East Bowl Games this season
The only conference who won more bowl games than The SEC East alone was the Pac-12 who has 6 bowl wins this season, and they had 2 losses !
Ole Miss got blown-out in Peach Bowl by 5 TD and 2 FG
Alabama defense blistered for 42 points in Sugar Bowl by team 12 previous bowls vs SEC never won
Miss St lost by 15 to Georgie tek in Orange Bowl for their 1st Major Bowl win after 1955
LSU lost to Notre Dame who still even after the win does not have a winning bowl record, even.
Auburn lost to Wisconsin in Music City bowl.
2-5 SEC West in Bowl games this season.
Only Texas A&M and Arkansas of SEC West even won their bowl games, while Georgia and Missouri beat Arkansas and while Missouri beat Texas A&M as well.
The mystique of the SEC West is shattered. In fact, they have collectively shamed the entire SEC with their bowl performances this season, now over.
The SEC’s 7 Bowl Wins this season tops all conferences, thanks to The SEC East !
Hell, Ohio State had played 12 Bowl Games against SEC teams and never won even once, before beating Alabama scoring 42 points on Nick Saban.
Notre Dame does not even have a winning bowl record, even after beating LSU.
Nice job SEC West.
Instead of trying to tell us all how great you all are before you even play each other, how about winning other than over yourselves !
Bring on Alabama 2015 ! Lame Kitten’s play calling was horrendous and childish against Ohio State and their defense was lackluster. Alabama does not have any more talent on their team than we have.
We have South Carolina at our house game 3 in 2015, then 2 games later welcome Alabama back to Sanford as well. Then, we have the vols up there, followed directly by inviting Missouri back here. Then, we have an open date, then Florida. 2 games after that, we go to Auburn where we more likely than not win. And, then we have Georgia Southern University who was snubbed from a bowl game 2014 when they damn sure earned one, and then Georgie tek who has a QB, don’t they ? We play them at Bobby Dodd Stadium 2015, where we own them – their stinking old stadium named for a college drop-out from the University of Tennessee at ObKnoxiousville.
We start-off with 2 easy games against cupcakes 2015, so we can have as many suspensions again this off-season as the guys want.
Have at it.
The coaching staff is all given raises and extensions for losing to 2 unranked teams and a 3rd team whose average recruiting rank is # 52 and their coach now does not even have a losing record at Sanford. Good thing we play them there !
Only 2 SEC teams played bowl games on days’ before us this season.
Our bowl record is 2-3 over the latest 5-year period.
We have 10 losses to unranked teams after 2007.
We have had 9 seasons of 14 with 10 wins or more, but only half of the last 6 years !
It would seem prudent to me to give raises and extensions to coaches when they are doing well. You send mixed messages of what is acceptable to extend their contracts and give them raises to great fanfare when in fact after 2007,, we have won 2 games and lost 1 for 7 entire seasons – a paltry 67 % win percentage when Mark Richt had an 81 % win percentage back when he was calling play calls for us as our Offensive Coordinator – which is what he told us he would do when Vince Dooley hired him December 20, 2000.
So, we usher in a New Year, and Happy New Year to all, while we spend our off-season bragging on our recruiting. The only problem with that is that one we will end up the # 8 ranked class 2015. And two, talent here has never been an issue. Our issues are two-fold : First losing to lackluster unranked teams and Second losing to the top teams – none of whom did we play 2014. We do this because of our roster mismanagement we’ve practiced every year !
2015 is a far more challenging schedule. We lose only 1 of the OL starters. We need a slew of players on defense. We are way short of scholarship recruits, again. We do not play starters on our special teams as we see all these top teams doing, who by the way over 100 of them now have a Special Teams’ Coach, which we do not have. Brice Ramsey is concerned for his job and Jacob Park has kept quiet. Faton Bauta has done everything asked of him, and more; but, could obviously play lots of positions for us – unlike the other 2 pocket passers.
We return our running backs, except for Todd Gurley II – when he was not on the field here more often than he was.
Here in this state where only 3 other states have more high school recruits who go on to the NFL, our fortune cookie for 2015 reads the same as it has all the previous 14 seasons.
We tell the coaches they are doing great.
We recruit well.
We still lose to less-talented teams.
We fail to beat the top teams.
We have been doing this for 7 seasons in a row now.
8th season in a row, shall be, no different.
Did I mention the off-season shall be marred by arrests/suspensions/kicked-off and that we completed 2014 with 16 such.
Maybe I did.
Maybe I stated clearly that Mark Richt not calling the plays and the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off have directly led to our demise 7 seasons in a row – 2014 included.
Now, give them all raises and extensions. Tell them how great they are with 9 of 14 seasons 10-win seasons in what is now 15-game seasons for the top teams of which we have not been and are not now either, and disregard that half the latest half a dozen seasons have seen us NOT make even 10-wins.
It’s sad for what passes for great around here. SEC West included.
29 losses latest current 7 years for Mark Richt including 10 to unranked teams, a lousy record away from Sanford, horrible record against top 25 teams even and anemic record against top 10 – but, boy do we have talent – all wasted.

I say give him a 4-year extension and pay him the # 21 best in the nation, while reminding him that NONE of these teams ahead of him in won/lost record the entire 2nd half of his tenure here had better talent than he did. Say something such as coaching is defined as getting more from less – not the opposite. Remind him too that his win percentage was 81 % when he was calling the plays because it kept his head in the game. And, ask him to teach his scholarship recruits to obey the rules for a damn change, ok ?
UGA Top 10 Wins’ Program All-Time should be WAY UP this chart of won/lost records his 2nd half of his career here. Ask him why recently, currently, the latest 7 years have been so mediocre – so inconsistent, so schizophrenic ?
I thought Florida was doing worse than us ?
I thought Clemson was doing worse than us ?
I thought Missouri was doing worse than us ?
I thought Southern California was doing worse than us ?
I thought Nebraska was doing worse than us ?
I thought Oklahoma State was doing worse than us ?
Nick Chubb is All-America. The All-America teams will show him on it. He is a true freshman. He has this year, 2015, 2016 and 2017 if he wants. I think he may want.
A memorable season has come to an end. The Georgia Bulldogs ate up and spat out Todd Grantham and Bobby Petrino, who could find no QB on their roster, while Brice Ramsey showed the effects of not being prepared as I called for for him all season.
After the game, Nick Chubb was asked about his performance and he said it was about his team, not him. They blocked for him and got him the ball. He just did his job. Nick Chubb has long-established he gives the best interviews. So, ESPN asked about the future for UGA, and Nick actually for the 1st time, was caught by surprise by that question. Is it bright ? No real answer.
Hutson Mason was releasing the ball in an over throw to the end zone, and was slammed to the grass surface and his head bounced. John Lilly had rolled him out when it seemed the pocket protection was this year, awesome all year. Run blocking by this veteran OL who loses only the center, was also spectacular this season. Still, Hutson Mason was asked to roll-out to his right and throw toward the end zone. He was on an island.
Hutson Mason stated he had a concussion and everything was spinning. If you have never had a concussion, the first is recognizable. You have no idea where you are. Everything is light. You are light-headed. It takes some time, which the NCAA does not allow, to play-on. He did anyway, not telling anyone. But, he had no idea where he was or what he was doing when Nick Chubb had his memorable TD run. The hit happened when it was 13-7, having settled for 2 field goals. There was the Chris Conley beautiful post route. How does Louisville have safety on the play and coverage, and the route so adroitly run that he is wide open by 10-yards. To Hutson Mason’s credit, he hit him in stride. You could see Chris Conley get his feet right, something Brice Ramsey needs a lot of work on as detailed on this blog all season long about him, before hauling in the give-me TD reception.
Hutson Mason was dazed and confused, and led UGA Passing attack the only QB to play all season, to # 87 Passing Offense all 2014 season nationally. Not good. Not respectable. Hutson Mason did beat Mike Bobo’s 1997 season, a season I’ve pointed out to you ever since. Why he was out there with no protection, God only knows, but that was the play call. John Lilly is a Tight End’s coach here who only played QB by trade himself, and not an offensive coordinator, and he did not make this game plan. But, he did his job to fill-in, and that is good on his resume; although Mark Richt must go hire a top offensive coordinator since obviously he does not care to take over calling plays as he did when we were great 2001-2005.
2006, he started transitioning to the now demotion Mike Bobo takes to the # 92 University nationally US News and World Report ranking as top colleges in Fort Collins Colorado. Fort Collins is quite the growing city and Colorado State University is quite large actually, but they are a horrible football program. And, they always have been, with a losing record all-time in 1,040 games with only 470 wins.
Kurt Roper would be a fine choice.
Mark Richt will not hire him.
Mark Richt is trying to let John Lilly take over as O.C.
Anything, but call the plays himself.
He does not care.
Speaking of which, how in the Hell does he have a such a suntan December 30 ?
Was he on vacation in the tropics at the end of the season while we lost 2 and won 3 ?
The year, 2014, started off poorly off-field with what ended-up 16 arrested/suspended/kicked-off. And, the season got no better start than to beat an impressive Clemson, who just doesn’t have a QB – although I identified one in the game, and pointed it out in my review of that game found by clicking calendar on home page and seeing all the posts here on this blog by date they were written. As the season turned-out, Clemson took my advice at QB and is quite good right now.
They still need a running game.
Many of the teams at the bottom of the polls will drop-out. LSU comes to mind, and so too does this team Louisville, although they might hang-on utterly demolished by UGA on a day Hutson Mason and Brice Ramsey made 12 of 18 on 3rd down conversions against supposedly the # 2 best rush defense nationally. Louisville played no one. Well, the teams they played, all beat them. Clemson beat Chokelahoma like a red-headed step child. Mark Richt beat Todd Grantham, who hate each other and everything each represents, 37-14.
3 TD and a field goal Mark Richt beat Todd Grantham.
Mark Richt never liked Todd Grantham to begin with and only chose him because he was told to. He did so against his own better wishes and better judgment. He quickly criticized everything Todd Grantham ever said or did here.
There is little difference in that hate relationship and the hate relationship now enjoyed by Mark Richt as well with Greg McGarity. Greg McGarity is happy to finally have his 2nd bowl win, albeit finding only 2 SEC teams played on days’ prior to our own weenie bowl on a night of 31 degrees and a 7 mph wind from the NE. It was cold. Nick Chubb will be drafted higher than Todd Gurley II, because well, he is a workhorse and tireless and thankless at his task. That would be a factor that he did well in such cold condition for the NFL to rate him higher, since football is a winter sport, called Fall Sport.
NFL Winter Sport for sure with the cities up North.
After football, I played basketball and lettered as well. Then, the 3rd season, I lettered in track and field and also in baseball as the starting catcher my junior and senior seasons. This season has come to an end, and hopefully the off-season will not be like last year.
Mark Richt needs to get on the stick and hire Kurt Roper. He will pause and think of John Lilly. It is what he does. He just doesn’t care. If he did, he would call the games, himself. It is his Calling actually. Well, his second Calling.
Mark Richt has been fit to be tied. He cares about his suntan, but he has been fit to be tied for some time now. It is his own fault for not preparing once again his back-up QB.
Jacob Park gets a shot at the job now. Brice Ramsey has taken 2 steps back in recent games. He and Hutson Mason should have both thrown 2 more picks each. Louisville just had not played anyone. Certainly not with our talent.
Make no mistake about it, it was bitter cold. Some guys can play in the cold. Some cannot. It is a mindset, as I see it. Your task at hand, you focus in, or you are destroyed by the 7 mph wind. If it were slightly warmer, as New Year Day’s Bowls in Florida hint hint, then, the 7 mph wind or even the same temperature would not be so bad. But, this was cold. Bitter.
If you step outside in cold, you get a feel, but you have to imagine yourself in the mountains for the weekend, and nowhere to hide from it. It gets old, and you need to warm-up. A football game of 3 hours with break inside halfway, one can get one’s mind right about the cold. For that period of time.
We did and Louisville, a itty-bitty city of Healthcare really is up North.
Charlotte is certainly not down South.
Raleigh is 8 hours from us and quite North.
Nick Chubb had a task at-hand. He was in a zone, and remained there through his interviews.
All-America Nick Chubb
I am so proud of Nick Chubb.
I hope that you all are enjoying your holidays, and that at least for you, they were not mostly just discussion as with ours of Mark Richt and where his head is consistently. Tonight on this cold evening, Georgia showed what it is capable of, albeit against a team likely to be removed from some Top 25 Polls for the season, having beat no one. Still, they find a QB, and they might well be a team who can beat Clemson and FSU, the only 2 teams in the stinking ACC with their stinking bowl record, Louisville adding to that. All-Time Louisville does not even have a winning bowl record.
Notre Dame does not either.
28-19-3, now, Georgia is one of the top bowl teams, despite Mark Richt having lost 3 of our previous 4.
This was the shot in the arm we needed.
Obviously, Mark Richt is going to give Brice Ramsey the 1st right to refusal to the QB job. I’d personally consider this the right time to begin my call for Jacob Park to get more play next season than afforded strong-armed Brice Ramsey. He really has shown the rust from not playing now for two years. How you can have a QB of his caliber and put him in that position at this critical juncture of his growing life that he has not played at all really for 2 entire seasons now, is a question for Christian Mark Richt. He plays Favorites. He always has.
He is quite stubborn, a trait not normally noted about Christians, but can be in circumstances where the Christian thinks his does not stink.
Or, that his lot in life is to run others’ life for them. I believe they screwed-up their own life and have no Calling to screw-up others’ as well.
If you want to do something : Do it; do not tell me how to live my life.
I reserve that right to screw-up my own on my own, and my own way.
No one has ever told me what to do.
No one ever will.
If that your lot in life to tell others how to live their life, good luck.
All the best.
But, you are FOS to do so.
And, will fare no better than anyone else with me.
I know you are wrong to do so, and you probably know that yourself.
But, you do it anyway, because well, that makes you feel superior. I mean, well, you’ve thought about it, and this is what is right to you right now – so, you share it; but, you do not stop there : You feel obligated to ram it down everyone else’s throat how they should follow your lead.
You might change your mind.
Then, we must follow that new lead in your own direction.
Just let me be.
I am not here to live up to your expectations.
I’ve thought about it. I choose what I choose because well I get one go-round.
You shall not live my life for me.
This is where Todd Grantham got off on the wrong foot with Mark Richt.
This is where everyone has felt the need to correct Bobby Petrino – nothing but a little shit himself.
I on the other hand, you see, am quite fed-up with the
OFF-SEASON BULLSHIT BY UGA FANS OF HOW GREAT WE ARE
followed by the results of losing to far less-talented teams and ending up losing to 3 such this season alone, not to even begin to mention the 16 arrested/suspended/kicked-off. If Louisville does as I think next season, it will be because of our players in this category.
Why are they in no trouble up there ?
Is it because they are lax ?
Or, we were lax ?
Harsh punishment : Yes, by all means !
But, we turned our backs on them when they needed us most, and we failed to teach them to obey the rules, prior.
Is someone teaching them to obey the rules, there ?
The police had no problems here finding them, and there no different.
Here they were Forgiven.
Loved when they bad. Sent all the wrong signals at all the wrong times. Not taught to obey the rules, therefore. It is our Achilles’ heel.
And, so another off-season begins.
One with great promise for the future of a few and others, well the end.
A time when standing-pat once again, will just not get it.
But, without the sour taste in our mouths we had until tonight in the cold.
Todd Grantham is tossing and turning.
On a night they had no QB, our quarterbacks were woeful, but converted 3rd down two-thirds of the time. Funny how that works. 2/3 of the time lose in football, and you are an also ran. In baseball, the greatest ever at the plate, and in football for the game, the winner.
Or, the loser failing that.
We racked-up 505 yards of offense, 305 on the ground against the # 2 best rushing defense nationally.
Our OL tore them a new one every play. Nick Chubb had a Thanksgiving Feast of cardinal stew.
1-0 all-time now thanks to Nick Chubb.
Let’s get out our crystal ball, shall we ?
Mark Richt will drag his feet on his OC and lean towards John Lilly promote from within. Brag on the plays he neither designed, the OL he neither recruited or trained, the running back he neither recruited or trained, and the game plan he also neither came-up with nor the plays themselves he conceived. He will be bragged about 37-14, not Nick Chubb All-America, then promoted.
A special teams’ coach will not then be hired.
To fill that old position of John Lilly.
Tight Ends’ Coach who knows nothing about Tight Ends.
Quarterback by trade, his Calling may well have been to ultimately be OC, but he has no experience wasting his time teaching that which he knows not, Tight Ends. When what you do your whole entire time is but tight ends, you well might learn something about that, but you certainly are not honing your skills to conjure up not an antiquated offense, as our own. And, this what Mark Richt wants. It is his team. You call plays here, you will call the plays 10 years’ ago he designed and since we’ve run.
10 years’ ago, it worked.
Now, we need new vision.
Not the antiquated one conjured up by a then vibrant young man, who since just doesn’t care, or he would take over play-calling duties himself – by far our best option since we were great then. Elite. Losing to the likes of 7-win South Carolina and 6-win Florida ( who did not lose 6 games, yet.) and # 52 recruits of Georgie tek, is most certainly
We have not been elite since Mark Richt last called our plays.
We got a sniff of what this season might have been with a QB to complement the running game tonight, but unfortunately, Brice Ramsey was only allowed to throw
24 this season
24 is all we had Brice Ramsey complete all season, and that includes coming-in the 2nd quarter of this game and playing exclusively there after. He was poor as a result.
When all you are allowed to do in a 15-game season for the top teams of which we are not one because of this, is to complete 24 passes, you are not in the least able to come in and play a top defense, rated that way without beating anyone or not.
Buck Belue, he played tonight. He had to. For one, we were ahead 13-7 when Hutson Mason suffered his career-ending concussion, and 20-7 when he came in for him. For two, he was not prepared by Mike Bobo and Mark Richt. Damn it, you have to play your freaking back-up quarterbacks.
How many times, do I have to tell you the same basic precepts of college football ?
Brice Ramsey looked like shit out there tonight and it all is because he has not played at all in 2 years’ time of 24 passes. That’s one completion per month for 2 entire freaking years, for God’s Sake !
Get Jacob Park in in game 1 and let him throw the damn ball, live.
Don’t tell us all off-season how great Brice Ramsey is, or is not, and teach him instead how to throw the football by placing his feet in a throwing position. He has not done that since he got here. When he does, he will be sent directly to the NFL. He will anyway, and they will re-teach him that. Obviously, we’re incapable of that. John Lilly can teach him that.
We converted less than half our 3rd downs for the season, against a weak-ass schedule with the likes at running back The University of Ground Attack has never seen.
Well, we all saw it this year and it was great fun. But, Good Lord Above, had we not had the # 88 Passing Offense to complement it, defenses would not have keyed on our stable of Tailbacks. We had so many Tailbacks of great stature that even injuries, suspensions, and repeated over use of them individually with all the talent behind him sitting no the bench fresh and foaming at the bit to carry once, JJ Green quit the team, himself quite a two-way player for us who was jerked around by us, mismanaging our roster.
As we continue to do.
Nick Chubb needed to set the all-time record 266 yards ? Or, should have been taken out to great fanfare, short of that ? Win by 3 TD and a Field Goal or by a Field Goal and 2 TD ? That was the question. Again, Mark Richt left in his star tailback.
Inexcusable how we failed to prepare a back-up QB for this contingency and complement our tailbacks with a real QB with a real arm. And, inexcusable how we mismanaged our tailbacks, veritable plethora of embarrassing riches at tailback behind one of our best OL ever.
Certainly of the Mark Richt era.
And, so 29 losses for 7 seasons despite the embarrassing wealth of talent.
More than 4 losses a season. Yes, 9 seasons of 10-wins out of 14, however more than 4 losses the latest most current 7 seasons when these are 15-game seasons for the top teams. 10 wins ? Shit.
There are 30 teams who end this season with 10-win seasons. Most did not lose to 3 teams far less talented.
You will be watching them play.
They play, ALL OF THEM, after us this bowl season.
And, with the season ending, we have a I told you so.
To those few brave enough to utter as we went along that I was all wrong on the team’s direction and the documented problems on-going between Greg McGarity and Mark Richt, guess what ?
I told you so.
As to the off-season bullshit by our fan base of our greatness ?
I told you so.
We beat some good teams, and played none of the great teams.
But, we lost ladies and gentlemen to three (3) teams far less talented, all 3 of whom were we supposed to beat and handily.
2 of them, sucked.
The lone remaining loss besides 2 sucky teams was # 52 avg recruiting rank to our # 9. We had all 3 games won. The QB cost us all 3 losses. The same one who lost to Nebraska last bowl game, another unranked team.
Mark Richt really wants a puppet O.C. so he can closet call the plays, like he has been doing. But, he doesn’t care anymore or he would’ve updated this offense. And, he doesn’t care, or he would have called the plays all his career here instead of 2001-2005 when we were great.
So ends a season of no bananas as I promised before it started, and for the reasons I promised as well.
We go into the off-season with a top recruiting class coming-in. About # 8 I calculate we will find our class ranked. It has no QB; that’s the year after next. Will he be a 4-year starter ? I called for one this season. We failed because we did not.
In the end, we were forced to bring in someone else and he has 24 passes now he’s had in 2 years’ worth of time. Friq. Aaron Murray threw that many in 1 quarter.
We shall see at QB, as OC, as TE coach when we do not throw the ball any longer in our out-of-date offense to TE anymore, as to whether TE Coach is instead Special Teams’ Coach, and how many arrested/suspended/kicked-off will kill our season next season, not nearly as kind a schedule as this wasted season.
But, a season that for a change ends on a high note. For that, we’re thankful.
We did not have interceptions, sacks and fumbles for a change in this old-style basic offense. We should have suffered a lot of interceptions but our schedule weak-ass, and our opponents all dropped them. We fumbled a fair bit, but did not lose them. And, when we sacked, they were all in games against weak-ass teams who game planned that they would make Hutson Mason beat them. Louisville did not do that tonight. They never could stop Nick Chubb.
We need wrinkles on offense.
Isaiah Mackenzie was conspicuously missing. That just # 16 for the season, and no one would say why.
But. Faton Bauta did not play and he can play many positions.
Tramel Terry made a bone-jarring tackle on special teams.
Zach DeBell, as it turns out did not play – so, there’s that.
Ray Drew, Starter the last 11 games, body slammed a poor whiny little guy.
Leonard Floyd had surgery.
JJ Green did not play, but we would not have played him anyway – jerking him around like so many.
Toby Johnson did not start, but was hero.
Tim Kimbrough did not start once all season. Our linebackers were that good, because this man can get the job done.
Keith Marshall gets another medical year. He was rushed back when obviously he was not ready and still compensating. We have so many tailbacks, JJ Green left over it.
Quincy Mauger who started 7 games including the last 3, we will have to find out about his injury.
Sony Michel started against Louisville and would have battled Nick Chubb for the honors this game had not our special teams needlessly away from the ball not involved, tackled Louisville defender from the back. Damn it. We did that shit all season.
So, it does not look like there were any other suspensions.
Might move up but not making any Top 10 – don’t deserve it.
On to basketball, baseball, recruiting signings, G-Day Game, new QB we got an unfair glimpse of not prepared at all with 24 passes the latest 2 years’ period here, and an off-season of standing pat – like 29 losses great these latest 7 years.
2nd Half of the Mark Richt era shows us with 29 losses, an entire third to unranked teams.
Half the teams we lost to latest 29 losses, nowhere considered better.
The ACC drops to 3-5 this bowl season, like they always do.
LSU gave away their game for SEC only loss.
The big bowl games are in 2 days’ time. The day before New Year, and New Year’s Day.
Jeff Schultz states here that Mark Richt’s more than 4 losses a year for 7 years now is less than fulfilling, but generally isn’t something to complain about . I am sorry Jeff Schultz but MORE than four (4+) losses per season the latest 7 years for Mark Richt is sorry, sir. Less than fulfilling ? Piss poor coaching. Mighty piss poor, sir. 29 losses after 2007 sucks, Jeff Schultz. It is # 20 in won/lost. UGA All-Time since 1892 is Top 10 All-Time Wins’ Program. We have averaged the # 9 Scout.com Recruiting Ranking which is 2nd best nationally in the Mark Richt era since 2001. This is verified by the 81 NFL Draft Picks Mark Richt era for us, also 2nd best nationally. Southern California has averaged a better recruiting class since 2001 and has more NFL Draft Picks since 2001. No SEC team, or anyone else – has.
Yet, we are # 20 in won/lost record after 2007.
What is wrong with this picture ?
If coaching is getting more from less, then Jeff Schultz, sir, he is doing a very poor job of coaching; and it is doing so badly. Isn’t it Jeff Schultz, sir ?
That’s just wrong, sir.
I feel no need to kowtow to Mark Richt for press conferences, and if I did I would feel like I had a conflict of interests, to not report that which is the truth, sir.
The vast majority of the UGA Bulldogs’ fans feel this way. All Thanksgiving and now all Christmas it’s all anyone has talked about.
And, the losses. Good Heavens the losses have been devastating sir. 3 teams this season beat us, none of the 3 anywhere near us in talent. Proven talent. Verified proven talent. We waste talent, Jeff Schultz, sir. You know that. The thoughts of everyone all Thanksgiving and now all Christmas is that EVERYONE KNOWS Mark Richt should have taken Todd Gurley II out of the damn game, not trying to increase with 5 minutes to go a 3 TD lead to a 4 TD lead. It does not even bear witnessing that he had the 100-yard kick-off return which was called back which kept him from starting the game. Nor, that he had 138 yards on the most carries ever in his career, already, too. Nor that he had NOT played in 6 weeks’ time from Oct 5 to Nov 15. All this, not to MENTION TOO, he ALREADY was injured in the game and compensating for that. How about the bitter cold in that wind, that maybe the tipping of the scale to sit TGII down for Georgie tek ?
Squib kick ?
Damn it, you learn that as a head coach coaching Pop Warner football.
Up by 3 on great play, and here we throw the game away giving them the bloody damned ball at the 43-yard line.
That is as kind as I can be on that “decision.”
Handed the ball 1st and goal from the 4 on the interception the South Carolina fans were so sure would do them in that they covered the end zone, covered it, with debris. And, we call a play/action fake ? Are you kidding me ? Hutson Mason has rushed for nothing all season or last year or ever. He is slow. He has poor arm strength and cannot throw the football through the end zone from the 4-yard line.
Worst call I ever saw given the situation and Todd Gurley II already record-setting performance in this game against this team.
When do you USE your talent and when do you NOT ?
This guy has no clue.
I still say TGII has a lawsuit he needs to make against Mark Richt, personally. Mark Richt owes TGII.
South Carolina won only 6 games, this 15-game season for the top teams. Everyone beat them.
Florida won only 6 games, this 15-game season for the top teams. Everyone beat them, too.
Georgie tek averages # 52 recruiting ranking, and we # 9.
Now, get up there and interview Jere Morehead. Ok ? Obviously Greg McGarity doesn’t care how many losses we pile up and how many arrested/suspended/kicked-off we add.
God Almighty Damn, son !
Less than fulfilling, but generally isn’t something to complain about ?
How can I put this delicately for you Jeff Schultz ?
How about bullshit.
Just say no.
No, this coach is not getting the job done and more and more now even the staunch Mark Richt Supporters have abandoned ranks, and said :
I HAVE BEGUN TO LOSE FAITH IN MARK RICHT NOW IT HAS GONE ON SO LONG – 7 YEARS !
As for Mark Richt calling the plays, great thought !
We were far better back then when he did. We recruited fullbacks. We signed long lists of OL. We tried to do something on special teams too since he coached those as well Now, we fair catch, kick-off short, and basically act as if we do not care. Therefore, I submit humbly that Mark Richt does not care. He will not call the plays because he does not care, anymore. He used to. Back then, he had an 81 % win percentage. Not now. Not after 2007. After 2007, it is win 2 games lose 1, win 2, lose 1, win 2, lose 1. 67 percent win percentage with the losses
I see too, that yet another is now missing for the bowl game. Isaiah Mackenzie is the 16th Bulldog arrested/suspended/kicked-off 2014.
71 all he has to play in the bowl game. He’s lost 3 of the latest 4 bowl games. He signed 118 scholarship recruits to LOI who with a redshirt season would be playing in this bowl game which finds only 2 other SEC teams playing before us this Christmas Season. Sad.
I am surprised that no one at the AJ-C has written a year in review which details this. Just lonely little I have made any effort to detail ALL the attrition – just in 2014.
There is no solace in any of this, losing to lesser teams.
Getting less with more.
God Almighty Jeff Schultz, sir.
Wake up !
I believe Mark Richt’s problems are his religion. He’s more interested in that than he is coaching the damn football team. There is something we adhere to more important than winning ?
Bullshit there is.
Now, if you want to be a bloody damn preacher man, then, yes there is something more important than winning we adhere to here at UGA.
NOT if you are our football coach taking three and one-half million from me annually, telling us with your lips your Calling is to be football coach.
If your Calling is to be damned preacher man, then go do that, and then – you’re right that there is something more important around here we adhere to here at UGA than winning.
How can you be such a dumbass that even I can see it, and not you, Jeff Schultz ?
Well, I wake up and read the AJ-C Sports Section as I’ve done here every day now since the fifties, and front page Sports, there is Mark Bradley in print edition having an entire half-hour scheduled one-and-one interview with Greg McGarity, UGA Athletics Director. It goes on for 2 pages in print. 1 whole entire page.
Greg McGarity was installed as the puppet replacement for Damon Evans by the same guy who hired Damon Evans of the famous videos warning us at Sanford not to drink and drive. Mike Adam$ hired Damon Evans much to the chagrin of all Bulldogs’ fans everywhere to replace the wildly popular (still) Vincent J. Dooley who has 3 (three) national championships in football in all the same polls Georgie tek has all their nc in (although Georgie tek never has won an AP Poll nc except once in girls’ tennis long ago now) and Vince made a number of great hires. Then, Damon Evans “do you know who I am,” he whined to the Roswell Policemen, was arrested for DUI. His bimbo, like that of our next opponent Bobby Petrino coach of Louisville, got both in deep hot water.
Hot water, not unlike that of Greg McGarity and Mark Richt, today. That Greg McGarity and Mark Richt neither have bimbos is of little consolation to either on this day.
They’re both Goody Two-shoes, and this where the dissimilarity ends with Bobby Petrino and Damon Evans. Mark Richt and Greg McGarity are beyond reproach with regard to bimbos, but their efforts at winning have put both in hot water. Both are on the hot seat. Both the subject of many e-mails from supporters such as myself, and you, no doubt. Greg McGarity states he reads them and replies to many, by the way.
With Greg McGarity, there never was a good time. He came here from Florida in the off-season after the 2009 season – not a stellar year for Mark Richt and frankly neither was the 2008 either with both all the losses and all the off-field arrests and suspensions.
To begin the next season for Mark Richt, Greg McGarity was here in his current position in charge for the win over Louisiana Lafayette. Then, the dam broke for Greg McGarity, and the roof caved-in on Mark Richt.
Not that the dust has settled even yet after the Louisiana Lafayette win to begin that season when Greg McGarity was installed as our puppet-AD of Mike Adam$, the losses since have been staggering. To replace widely unpopular Mike Adam$’ previous puppet-AD, Damon Evans. “Here just let me drive the vehicle home officer, ok ? Do you even know who I am ?”
So, Greg McGarity knew coming-in, that he was taking over a football program in dire straights for 2 entire seasons before he was hired. Both of the previous 2.
Mike Adam$ was so unpopular here in The Bulldogs’ Nation that when we went to the Sugar Bowl at the Georgia Dome and sat down, we none of us could quit booing Mike Adam$ and his wife before we were behind 0-28 to West Virginia, mind you. That may seem like a long time to you 28 to nothing, but we showed-up unprepared and no game plan, unmotivated – all this while the entire Georgia Dome was rocking from the booing of Mike Adam$.
I wonder who picked up the check with Greg McGarity and Mark Bradley meeting at a restaurant downtown here in Atlanta ?
Mike Adam$ bilked us for all we were worth on such junkets.
Even double-dipping on expense reports, and later after being caught red-handed saying he would please like to re-pay that 1.
I do not know what the budget is yet for the new replacement of Mike Adam$ because he has failed to provide it, despite an e-mail to me personally and despite his URL Link to nothingness as well. Lots of fluff, and no substance. In fact, that is all Jere Morehead has done as well, replacing the wildly unpopular Mike Adam$.
So, you have wildly unpopular folks for a variety of reasons. In this case, the subject of all this interview is Mark Richt. I love the guy as a person and fellow Christian. But, we did not hire him as either of those. He is our football coach in charge of winning, not something else we adhere to here at UGA more important than winning as Mark Richt was quoted just a week ago telling us fans.
But, Greg McGarity’s failures go back all the way to after when the 2009 season of Joe Cox was over. The beginning of the 2010 season, perhaps you recall, found Greg McGarity here for the whole year in its entirety. All 6-7 of it. The loss to Colorado who fired their coach, like Florida did their coach this year. Greg McGarity and Mark Richt lost both of those games together. It’s a sordid story of their failures on and off the field together. Jere Morehead ? No comment from him ? Really ? If Mark Bradley can have this no-holds-barred interview where he does not have to kowtow to the AD to ask these questions, and the dimwit is stupid enough to show-up right now for it, why not interview Jere Morehead. Hand him this post right here. All the losses all 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and now 2014 have mounted for Greg McGarity and Mark Richt and all the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off which caused all these losses to less-talented teams. It is far from pretty the entirety of this match made in Hell of Mark Richt and Greg McGarity – Loserviille together and bad press city as well.
Mark Richt and Greg McGarity have teamed-up to be the biggest under-achievers in football history because we have had the 2nd best talent in the nation and have lost to ten (10) teams who either did not make both the AP or Coaches’ Poll for these 5 seasons they’ve been together, or the loss was to a team who was not ranked at game-time, or both, or the team did not make the AP Poll for the season.
Worse, we are only 45-21 overall during their tenure together a ludicrous puppet and a we do not even try to win because we believe in God here and that more important than winning coach. I do not know what you know about college football, but I share with you as a fan of this sport for all these years now, that 21 losses for 5 seasons is MORE than 4 Losses a Season, which is what Greg McGarity and Mark Richt have both accomplished together – not to diminish their myriad off-field bad press as well.
It’s not a pretty picture no matter how you try to paint it.
And, the same goes for Mark Richt for the years Greg McGarity was not here, after 2007 as well – the back-drop to the hire of AD Greg McGarity the horrid 2008 and 2009 seasons back-to-back.
2008 was a particularly poor season for UGA before Greg McGarity was hired, so this was there as a backdrop to his hire. We had 22 players in bar brawls pre-season 2008 being named # 1 Pre-Season Consensus in both the AP and Coaches’ Poll for the only time in school history. That very night of the polls both being released, we partied hearty. It was clearly the worst day in UGA Bulldogs’ College Football History that Saturday night before the season started when the AP Poll was released also showing us # 1. We had so many suspensions that Mark Richt was fortunate to be able to field an offense, special teams, and defense. We struggled against every team we played.
Then, having beat the teams we struggled against, we were dropped in the polls from # 1 and then we faced Alabama at our house on national TV the game-time # 6 team and we # 3. We fell behind 0-31. We do this all the time under Mark Richt, don’t we ?
We are simply frequently unprepared, unmotivated, and must be with our heads in the clouds, filled of off-season bullshit from our fan base on how great they all are, and don’t think they need to GATA. That they can just show-up and well, the worse ranked team, Alabama in this case, would just roll-over and play dead.
No, that’s UGA.
UGA is great at rolling-over and playing dead.
On the sidelines, he frequently is shown just asleep, sitting there on his bag of ice.
Mark Richt has put our fanbase asleep after 2007 similarly.
Mark Richt’s teams show up all too frequently the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era after 2007, asleep at the wheel, like UGA. After we lost to Alabama 2008, we lost to Florida and to Georgie tek. We were supposed to win ALL 3.
2009 was the year of Joe Cox when he was bragged about by Mark Richt and Mike Bobo yet he played with his chronic shoulder that kept him out of every 4th practice all season, and he had the flu against Okie State. We flew Joe Cox on charter flight to Stillwater because of his flu. Instead of what I called for pre-game of now NFL Zach Mettenberger, these dumbass UGA coaches told us all Joe Cox was the greatest QB on our roster. Bullshit and I said so pre-game, pre-season 2009 of Joe Cox as I did about Matthew Stafford not Joe Tereshinski III the 2006 season and as I rightfully called this season about Hutson Mason and his # 87 Passing Offense for UGA 2014 against a WEAK-ASS schedule. We also lost in addition 2009 to Okie State, to LSU, vols, Florida, and even to Kentucky. We average OVER 4 Losses a season under Mark Richt after 2007,with 29 Losses and Counting, so this 2009 season was no aberration, now was it ? 5 losses and that no aberration. Did you get that DISNEYdawgs.com Mark Richt Apologists ?
Then, this is where Greg McGarity was hired as Damon Evans’ replacement by Mike Adam$. After this horrid 2008 and 2009 on and off the field.
45-21 Greg McGarity and Mark Richt together here
45-21 Greg McGarity and Mark Richt together. Not exactly a match made in heaven, despite both being Little Miss Goody Two-shoes.
45-21 is win 2, lose 1, win 2, lose 1, win 2, lose 1 ad infinitum ad nauseam. It’s sickening with the 2nd best recruiting average ranking 2001-2015, and that as verified 2nd best nationally. For those who think the recruiting services are well just wrong. Excuse me, but Mark Richt also has 81 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014, also 2nd best in the nation. So, if the recruiting services are wrong, so is the entire NFL.
Under-Achiever label fits ?
We have had 118 signed scholarship LOI in the Greg McGarity/Mark Richt era here, who with a redshirt season would be playing in this bowl game, only 2 SEC teams playing before us this entire bowl season. There are 14 SEC teams. 2 play before us. Of the 118 LOI Greg McGarity/Mark Richt era, 72 can play in this weenie bowl in Charlotte. Mark Bradley quotes, by the way, Greg McGarity pointing out as I that Mark Richt has lost 3 of the latest 4 bowl games. This is Greg McGarity’s Bowl Record, pardon me. And, together their collective bowl record to have lost together Greg & Mark show 3 of the 4 bowl games they’ve had.
72 of 118 signed LOI scholarship recruits all remaining for Bowl Game
These 2 together have been an abomination, both on the field winning 2 losing 1 the entire time together, but also so many arrests/suspensions/kicked-off that Greg McGarity quipped in September that there had been zero in September. 15 for the year 2014, but 0 for September. He was proud of that. I thought at the time, if he were I and I made such a statement, it would have been on Saturday Night Live in a skit making fun of UGA Bulldogs’ Football Program to make such a hyperbolic statement.
Surely, no one not making a joke would quip that we had none arrested/suspended/kicked-off in September in a year 2014 in which 15 were arrested/suspended/kicked-off. Right ?
That just means we had 1 more some 4 other months, then.
Howdy Doody couldn’t have been more funny on his best day.
Reminds me of what he said when they informed Ray Goff that he’d been elected in the Georgia-Florida Football Game Hall of Fame : “For which team?”
Seriously, Howdy Doody ?
No one has been arrested/suspended/kicked-off all September, sir ? Really ?
You’ve got to be kidding me.
This puppet, Greg McGarity, has presided over the biggest under-achiever in college football history winning 2, losing 1 for 5 seasons together with Mark Richt with the 2nd best talent nationally 45-21.
Half of the more than 4 losses a season average, have been inexplicable.
This season , for example, we lost to 2 unranked teams and another team whose recruiting ranking averages # 52 to our # 9, and we lost at home to give their coach not even a losing record at our house.
How bad is that ?
Well, Florida had lost 10 of their latest 13 games when we also lost to them, blown-out.
South Carolina to begin this mess this season has only 6 wins, same as Florida, who fired their coach.
South Carolina beat us. Everyone beat South Carolina and Florida, but us.
The damn coach has been quoted after each of the 3 losses this season.
“If I had it to do over, I’d hammer it from the 4 on 1st and goal against South Carolina giving the ball to Todd Gurley II.”
“If I had it to do over, I’d kick it deep with 13 ticks on the clock, not to the 43-yard line as a squib kick having taken the lead by 3 at home against under-manned Georgie tek.”
“As for us showing up unprepared and taking it lightly that all these football players on our team have been quoted by you to me that the whole team took Florida our # 1 Rival I Mark Richt am now 5-9 against, I can only offer to them all, shut up !”
Well, that’s what he said.
Mark Richt, not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Joe Tereshinski III instead of NFL Matthew Stafford, seriously, Mark Richt as Starting QB son ?
Joe Cox instead of NFL Zach Mettenberger against Okie State, seriously, dumbass ?
Hutson Mason instead of future NFL Jacob Park AND Brice Ramsey, or even Faton Bauta ?
Mein Gott !
Got to be the stupidest coach and most ludicrous athletic director combination in the history of histories.
Together, the most unsuccessful combination – the most under-achieving in college football history with the most or 2nd most talent nationally in addition. Hard to imagine, isn’t it ?
Look, it’s one thing to get 1 QB wrong, but 3 ?
Look, it’s one thing to lose a game you’re supposed to win, but 10 un-ranked teams ?
3 of the 5 years, Greg McGarity has been unranked, for UGA Top 10 All-Time in Wins.
Mark Bradley got it right when he said in print AJ-C today that there are fans of Mark Richt who will support him no matter what.
There are not many left of those anymore. Their ranks have been depleted by half.
It’s gone on too long.
I supported Mark Richt 2001-2007, or at least 2001-2005 when I started to notice irregularities. We picked on opponents for bad behavior and then our fans refused to criticize us for it. We lost to top teams on the road where we used to always it seems to win those, or certainly the vast majority. The pendulum swung.
2011, we lost 4. You’d never know that talking to the still today Mark Richt Apologists. They are closet Mark Richt Apologists, mostly, now today where they say they are disappointed in his results on the field the dumbass stuff he says and does, and the off-field woes he wishes he could ignore every press conference telling the press do you want to talk football or that ? If that, I will just pack up my toys and leave. Adolf Hitler could not get away with that, but Mark Richt the Saint can ? Not in my lifetime. Thus, me. Thus, this. Thus, called out son.
2012, little Aaron Murray asks Mike Bobo and Mark Richt not once or twice but 3 times in front of me. All 3 times, they BOTH tell him no, do not spike it. Aaron Murray knew to spike it. That’s why he kept asking ?
Spike it ?
Spike it ?
Spike it ?
We just waste the talent we recruit. We are dumb.
I do not know what the AJ-C is doing any more. I think they must be charging 99 cents for this story in print thrown in my driveway today.
But this is not the story I am relating to you about.
Here, let me type how it starts out at least for you, and maybe you can find it if you are accustomed to paying for news available free on the Internet ?
“AD takes heat…”
“Amid some UGA fans’ doubts, McGarity ‘not afraid to make changes’…”
“In the days since Georgia lost to Georgia Tech, several people close to the program have suggested that all is not well in Athens, that some fans have lost faith in coach Mark Richt and doubt that athletic director Greg McGarity would be forceful enough to make such a high-profile change even if warranted”…
That this is the state of our football program, Proud Top 10 All-Time Wins’ Program UGA, is sickening. It has grown more tiresome as it has gone on for now 7 entire seasons of the 14 Mark Richt has been here now. Half the time. The 2nd Half. The most recent half. The Current 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era.
When we look at the polls on this blog, they all contradict The Mark Richt Apologists.

Do you make up excuses when Mark Richt loses ?
If you are any one of any of these, or have EVER said any of these statements, you are a DISNEYdawgs.com poster and fodder for my damn blog earning my DISNEYdawgs.com Award I’ve been giving out now online for longer than Mark Richt has been here. I started giving out my DISNEYdawgs.com Award in the Vince Dooley era – in fact, before the DUMP DOOLEY hire Erk Russell head coach campaign in the seventies.
Old school Bulldog ? …yeah.
But, I am also the one who SUPPORTED Mark Richt when he was winning 81 % of his games, back when The SEC was down. Since then, The SEC has become much stronger and Mark Richt is out-classed coaching college football offense, defense and special teams. Fine outstanding young man and family man and Christian, but By God Above – that is NOT what we pay him for – but, winning and he’s not getting HIS job done.
What’s your excuse ?
I am not a hater. I also do not want CMR’s job to be as cushy as it can be, but get him and the players to GATA, which is something we do not do. You’re satisfied, and I’m not. I presume, by now, you’ve figured that out ?
I know this.
There are a LOT of folks who agree with me that YOU’re the problem around here.
Mark Richt signed 118 scholarship recruits who with redshirt would be playing in this bowl game – which finds only 2 other SEC teams playing before us this bowl season. All 118 signed the letter of intent. Not 1 was drafted early in 2014 NFL Draft.
I submit herein that there is a correlation between arrests/suspensions/kicked-off and won/lost record, as Mark Richt over-all is 63-29 after 2007 – an average of MORE than 4 LOSSES a season nowadays.
(1) WR NR Lonnie Outlaw – Wide Receiver Georgia Military, failed to Qualify
(2)DT 16 Michael Thornton
(3)OT 90 Kenarious Gates
(4)QB 53 Hutson Mason
(5)MLB 74 Alexander Ogletree– suspended REPEATED FAILED DRUG TEST removed from team
(6)DT 6 Garrison Smith
(7)DE 12 T.J. Stripling
(8)DE 45 Dexter Morant– quit when he 1st got here. Unquit later. Then, flunked-out.
(9)S JC Jakar Hamilton– transferred-out Safety South Carolina State
(10)DE 52 Brandon Burrows–quit the team as soon as he got here, unquit. medical hardship.
(11)RB 25 Ken Malcome– quit, un-quit, AGAIN QUIT MARK RICHT Southern Illinois Salukis
The number after each player is their ranking at their position in the nation. RB 1 would mean Isaiah Crowell was the number 1 running back in The United States of America. These rankings are verified by not only the # 9 average recruiting rank for Mark Richt Scout.com 2001-2015, but also by his 81 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014, both of which are 2nd best in the nation behind only Southern California in the Mark Richt era 2001-2015 and # 1 best in The SEC at both as well. So, why are we # 20 after 2007 and # 5 in The SEC after 2007 to present at winning ? Well, I am going to delve into that for you in grave detail.
Does this look like a problem here for Mark Richt ? Earth is not ethereal, but earthy, Mark Richt.
If you do not like it, do not represent me or my University in a poor way. You represent your precious damn coach however you damn well like – the wimpy ass weasel.
Mark Richt signs more to LOI than other coaches do. He over signs. Your actions reflect on your coach. You represent your University.
This is what really irks me about Mark Richt, besides all the losing – a total waste of talent. Seemingly, on purpose, a total and utter waste of talent.
A Football Coach is paid to teach the recruits to obey the rules and to win.
A Preacher has a CALLING where higher ideals than winning are the goal.
There is a confusion around here about this.
When Mark Richt said that he was freed-up so that he could spend more time on football, what has he been doing ? Freed-up from what ? Church ?
Did you know that Mark Richt was not raised a Christian ? That he was not Saved until Bobby Bowden led him to the Lord when one of the FSU players died ?
When Brent Benedict OL told Mark Richt in 2011 that the Strength and Conditioning is all wrong here, why did Mark Richt disagree with Brent Benedict then, and now all of a sudden after losing to Georgie tek’s average # 52 recruits, 6-win Florida who fired their coach the following week, and 6-win South Carolina – he fires Joe Tereshinski II (Jr.) who should never have had the job in the 1st place obviously and still does not have any clear idea in his mind whom it is he is replacing him with. Just fire him instantly after Georgie tek loss, and make it appear as if Joe Tereshinski II (Jr.) is the scapegoat for that.
Does Mark Richt over sign recruits ? Mark Richt is supposed to be some coach who does NOT over sign, but does he in reality ?
Does Mark Richt over sign ?
Why does Mark Richt over sign ?
Why does he act like he doesn’t ?
Why do Mark Richt Apologists put-up with this ?
Honestly, the ranks of the Mark Richt Apologists are DWINDLING.
This BLOG has had a great part in this.
Here, I do not put-up with whiny little their shit doesn’t stink, Mark Richt Apologists. Not for one New York damn nanosecond, and never have and never will.
You want the facts ?
Or, are you going to sit there and try to tell me what is, isn’t and what isn’t is ?
You make up your own mind.
But, do not come whining to me.
Here we will discuss Mark Richt’s Religion and his CALLING from a Christian Viewpoint.
We will ALSO call it like it is.
Ask Fran Tarkenton.
I call it like it is.
Mark Richt signed 119 scholarship recruits who with redshirt would be playing in this bowl game – which finds only 2 other SEC teams playing before us this bowl season. All 119 signed the letter of intent. Not 1 was drafted early in 2014 NFL Draft.
The losses, arrests, suspensions, and kicked-off continue to mount on the coach Mark Richt, his loser AD Greg McGarity and Jere Morehead UGA’s do-nothing say nothing president.
These are all players who other schools recruited as well, but here at UGA is where they were given a lax sense of obeying the rules – often followed by harsh punishment and turning of the back by Mark Richt on the young men just when they needed him the most. Mark Richt did the most he could do to minimize the exposure of these incidents, and to cover them all up as best he could, including below as noted completely refusing to even contact the police and authorities, even for felonies he kicked them off the team for. Sending continuing lax sense of obeying the rules to these recruits, for whom Mark Richt alone is given all the credit for signing here even after they were no longer part of the team, Mark Richt has been cited in most of these incidents recently as saying he Loves the kids. This is a confusing and contradictory stance by Mark Richt to tell players that screwed-up here, that he loves them just when they needed him to be firm and make them understand that they must obey the rules.
Christians have these problems; they believe that they are forgiven; therefore they are not direct that the recruits here must obey the rules; in fact, Mark Richt is completely the opposite of direct that his recruits must obey the rules when he tells them after he kicks them off the team that he Loves them, which is worse than a mixed message on obeying the rules and really tantamount to directly telling them it’s ok – that they are forgiven. They are not forgiven. They bring bad press upon the good name of The University of Georgia. Mark Richt’s Christian goals of ministering to these kids are in direct contradiction to winning here at UGA, which is best exemplified by Mark Richt’s own quote just last week, that there is something here at The University of Georgia that we adhere to which is more important than winning. Mark Richt’s calling is to be a preacher man, not to be head coach of a football team. In fact, I do not believe that you can find ANY evidence to the contrary that Mark Richt does care about winning football games or coaching football or learning even the basic precepts of a calling of being a head football coach. He believes his calling actually is preacher man. A man cannot serve 2 Gods; he must either have a calling at $ 3.5 million annually to be a head football coach as his calling; or, he must have the calling to be a preacher man : Not both – as to have BOTH as priority # 1 goals, would be contradictory; it is, however, possible to have BALANCE in your life and witness to others in ANY calling; it’s just that Mark Richt’s calling is not to be football coach but minister.
When Mark Richt 1st got here, many of the recruits he brought in, he bragged about to the press that the reason he brought-in a trouble-maker was that he wanted to minister to him. After 14 years now, Mark Richt now sings a different tune on that – now, saying other schools recruited them as well, and then kicking them off the team like that exonerates him and cleanses his soul of them; but they say he turned his back on them just when they needed him the most.
Seen on the sidelines following losses to 10 teams after 2007 who did not make either the AP or Coaches’ Polls, or were not ranked at game time, or failed to make the final AP Poll, Mark Richt appears down-trodden by this double-whammy that he brings bad press to UGA on and off the field.
Mark Richt appears to the world as a defeated man over all this. Of the latest 24 games against teams higher ranked than he for these recent seasons, he has lost 20. Of the latest 21 games either as visitor or neutral fields against a team ranked for that season in either the AP or Coaches’ Polls, Mark Richt has lost 16. Of the latest 33 games against teams making either the AP or Coaches’ Polls for that season, Mark Richt has lost 23.
I submit herein that there is a correlation between arrests/suspensions/kicked-off and won/lost record, as Mark Richt over-all is 63-29 after 2007 – an average of MORE than 4 LOSSES a season nowadays.
It has come to the point today, where Mark Bradley wrote an article in the AJ-C print Sunday that even the old-school diehard Bulldogs’ fans have come to the same realization as Mark Richt appears to have come to on the sidelines, appearing worn-out from all this losing on the field to lesser teams who have lesser talent who he should never have lost to and from the continuing on-going never-ending off field arrests/suspensions/kicked-off.
I mean how can he be a minister, if at every press meeting, he has to take charge of the press meeting by telling the press to shut-up ? That if they do not want to discuss football, that he will go to his room and just spend his time, praying.
Mark Richt after losing to Florida, whom Mark Bradley points out fired Will Muschamp 15 days’ later, told the press when they informed him of player after player who admitted they took Florida lightly because well they had lost to 10 of their latest 13 games at game time, that his players should all just shut-up.
Defense of Mark Richt is considered defending the faith of The Bulldogs’ Program, and so many topics such as this are banned, deleted, censored, edited so that no discussion of same can be openly laid-out and gone through thoroughly.
There, however, is a growing concern among even those where about half of them have abandoned their earlier belief in Mark Richt and censorship of anything remotely resembling criticism of Mark Richt, and joined the bandwagon of the bastion group who actually do make the Bulldog Nation, the Bulldog Nation. Those from that camp forever will be known to be not Bulldog Football Program fans but fans of just only Mark Richt.
Why else would one put up with all this ?
Surely, the Top 10 All-Time College Football Wins’ Program has both College and Pro Hall of Fame Football Players who tell it to you like it is, guys like Fran Tarkenton who tells us too that Mark Richt is out of balance in his Religion and what SHOULD BE HIS CALLING of head college football coach at Top 10 All-Time UGA.
If your calling, indeed is football coach, then there is NOTHING more important than winning. And, this hogwash around here the contrary by Mark Richt is just yet another attempt to control your mind, have you drink the Kool-Aid, and to put-up with what Todd Gurley II termed mediocre losing.
Well, yeah, except that does not address the cause for all this losing – all the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off.
(1)WR NR Lonnie Outlaw – Wide Receiver Georgia Military, failed to Qualify
(2)DT 16 Michael Thornton
(3)OT 90 Kenarious Gates
(4)QB 53 Hutson Mason recruited because we kicked-off Zach Mettenberger. Zach Mettenberger kicked off team – Quarterback – LSU. He has 8 TD Passes in his 6 Starts in the NFL with 60 % completion ratio and 1,412 yards passing. There is no damn way that he should have stayed on the damned bench against Okie State 2009. That’s bullshit that Joe Cox with chronic shoulder and with flu only played against Okie State. I said that pre-game, as I did that Brice Ramsey or Jacob Park should have played against South Carolina instead of Hutson Mason who gets to play 1 more football game in his lifetime. And, as I said about not Joe Tereshinski III but Matthew Stafford. We recruit all these top 10 QBs in the nation, but then we have this bullshit lying coach who tells you the obvious poor QB is the better QB. Not in their lifetimes.
(5)MLB 74 Alexander Ogletree – suspended multiple times for violation of team rules, including the 4-game suspension for REPEATED FAILED DRUG TEST mandatory by my alma mater school policy. Removed from roster supposedly for medical reasons. Part of a package deal in the 1st place to get his NFL twin brother, Alec. Mike Bobo said he had a bad attitude. Was he kicked-off or mutually agreed to go to medically ineligible ? You tell me ? The issue here, as with all these others, is that Zander obviously has an illegal drug issue reported widely and that he had a bad attitude, but that Mark Richt could not maintain discipline. It cost us games. It cost us tons of bad press. It caused turmoil.
(6)DT 6 Garrison Smith
(7)DE 12 T.J. Stripling
(8)DE 45 Dexter Morant – quit when he 1st got here. Unquit later. Then, flunked-out.
(9)S JC Jakar Hamilton – transferred-out Safety South Carolina State, not like we needed any damn safeties here, is it ?
(10)DE 52 Brandon Burrows – serious high school injury after offered scholarship. Mark Richt kept the scholarship anyway. Brandon showed-up and quit the team as soon as he got here too. Then, he too changed his mind and unquit. Then, it was revealed that he really could not play due to injuries and then was put on medical hardship. This was supposed to be good press that Mark Richt left his offer intact ? I don’t think so, like the others listed herein, this is why the other coaches retracted their offer ladies and gentlemen.
(11)RB 25 Ken Malcome – to replace all these arrested/suspended/kicked-off running backs, Ken Malcome was here for us. What did Mark Richt do all 2011 while all this was going on with Isaiah Crowell ? Well, sir, Mark Richt gave FAVORITISM to Isaiah Crowell at the expense of Ken Malcome that is exactly what happened. 2011, Ken Malcome witnessing Isaiah Crowell given the opportunity to play Florida 3 days’ after FAILING THE DRUG TEST and all the other bullshit Isaiah Crowell subjected us all to, quit Mark Richt. Told him to his face. Ken Malcome had Mark Richt over a barrel. So, Mark Richt promised him he would play him. So, Ken Malcome un-quit Mark Richt. Then, Mark Richt did NOT play Ken Malcome and Ken Malcome AGAIN QUIT MARK RICHT – this time over the LIES by Mark Richt to Ken Malcome. Tailback 2014 Southern Illinois. Good school with a top athletic department. OL depth issues, RB depth issues, secondary depth issues… Quarterbacks signs all these top 10 Quarterbacks every year, and NEVER PLAYS THEM EITHER. It’s Bullshit how you WASTE talent here Mark Richt and PLAY FAVORITES. Hutson Mason comes to mind. Joe Cox comes to mind. Joe Tereshinski III comes to mind; his dad comes to mind as coach. Your DC for years comes to mind Willie Martinez. It’s what you do, Mark Richt you sorry piece of shit. All contradictory to your goal of winning here, which NOW you say is NOT YOUR GOAL HERE AT ALL BUT SOMETHING HIGHER. Bullshit Mark Richt and bullshit son on you, sir. Fed up with it all. Is that a FLAME ? I know this, it’s every word true – and more importantly, it’s TO THE DAMN POINT. Mike Bobo had to take up for you with Ken Malcome, Mark Richt. That made you feel good ? Or, that made you remember what you promised Ken Malcome, Mark Richt ? That all while instead, despite all the issues with Isaiah Crowell, you played Crowell and NEVER Ken Malcome. Why recruit the kid if you do not want to play him and want to lie to him Mark Richt ? Ken Malcome was 2nd leading on his team Southern Illinois Salukis last year with 5 Touchdown runs, but this season was cut short by injuries. But, that’s not the point Mark Richt, why play Isaiah Crowell stubbornly like you did as nothing but FAVORITISM when Ken Malcome you told, you would play instead. Sometimes you act Holier than God Mark Richt and sometimes, you are totally against everything that are my Christian Values. So, quit already Mark Richt with the bullshit about your Christianity, and coach football players. Was Ken Malcome like all your other running backs Mark Richt ? No, sir. But, you played them all despite their BAD PRESS at the expense of good kids, Mark Richt; and, I sir, take exception to that, as a Christian. I take exception to that on the basis of chemistry on the team, and by that I do NOT mean drugs, Mark Richt. You do not treat players right all the time Mark Richt – sometimes, you just get damn stubborn and play them no matter what they do. Montez Robinson comes to mind – arrested battery/family violence, multiple incidents, in fact Mark Richt went to jail and talked with him after he had not only picked-up his girlfriend allegedly and thrown her repeatedly to the floor, but also had a previous violent incident with her also arrested for and a 3rd time with her where he beat-up allegedly not her this time, but her car, kicked-off finally after ALL this. Absolutely amazing. Lax program here ? No question of it. No wonder the players love the coach. It sure as Hell is not because he is only 68 % win percentage for the last entire 7 years here, despite once having a 81 % win percentage. There are still fans today, Mark Richt Apologists, who quote what Mark Richt did way back then when he had the 81 % win percentage, who tell me on my blog here that I am taking a small subset of his career here – the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era after 2007 – to talk about 68 % win percentage and running a lax ship. Stick it where the sun doesn’t shine ! This is what you do here, Mark Richt. You want to be minister to Isaiah Crowell and Montez Robinson while nice guys like Ken Malcome get the freaking shaft by you, Mark Richt. It’s NOT right and it damn sure ain’t Christian. Maybe in the slums downtown you could put forth that as that preacher there, it was right on your part-time side job to play Isaiah Crowell and Montez Robinson after their repeated violations of EVERYTHING HOLY to give the bad boy a chance, a shot in life. But, this is NOT a trophy for everyone, and we are TRYING to win football games here. Some of us anyway, speaking for myself Mark Richt. You just are not the sharpest knife in the drawer, as you repeatedly prove to EVERYONE on this earth.
(12)OLB 3 Alec Ogletree
(13)CB 45 Derek Owens – became the 15th Mark Richt signed recruit who left UGA in 2011 alone who still had eligibility remaining. It was supposed to be THE GREAT EXODUS, THE CLEANSING NEEDED, THE GOOD RIDDANCE, THE GET OFF THE BUS, THE ADDITION BY SUBTRACTION. Instead, it became the mantra of only the Mark Richt Apologists who bragged THEREFORE thereafter that Mark Richt would go 15-0 and win the damn national championship. Uh huh. I believe all that shit. Right. Sure I do. How about not one friqin’ syllable of it ? None of it. I am not having any of it gentlemen. Transferred Derek Owens, Cornerback, Alabama State. We did not need any defensive backs, nah. Nothing like that.
(14)WR 84 Michael Bennett
(15)OLB 23 Demetre Baker – 10th Bulldog arrested that year too when he was arrested for DUI and under-age possession of alcohol open container in the vehicle. These are not MINOR arrests, are they ? Mark Richt suspended this 10th arrest that year for Mississippi State, whom Mark Richt LOST TO, and kicked him off the team. Demetre Baker tailback then transferred to South Alabama college whatever that is, and then was found there too in violation of team rules and also there, therefore, kicked-off.
(16)OT 10 Brent Benedict – Joe Tereshinski II, otherwise referred to as Junior – whom Mark Richt just fired after losing to Georgie tek like it was his fault – NEVER had our men training properly for Strength and Conditioning. Mark Richt had no OL 2011. Brent quit Mark Richt after discussing Joe Tereshinski II with Mark Richt 2011. 4 years’ later, Mark Richt agrees. Stubborn ass Mark Richt. Stubborn. Really stubborn. If Mark Richt has only 1 character flaw we can analyze, it is his repeated dogged stubbornness. Offensive Tackle Virginia Tech. Brent Benedict was injured AFTER Mark Richt offered him a scholarship here, and Mark Richt kept his commitment; Brent comes here to UGA and cannot play because of the injury and then goes to Virginia Tech where his career ends with him unable to play, after starting 7 games last year 2013. He just could not go, medical disqualification. But, he sure took his shots at Mark Richt and his Strength and Conditioning Program here, didn’t he ? And, again, how does this look giving away a scholarship when materially Brent Benedict was as damaged goods as Todd Gurley II is today and as Keith Marshall is. We are running a football team here, not a Christian side-job Pop Warner everyone gets a trophy program – not here. If Brent Benedict is injured, tell him to walk-on and you guarantee him a Full Scholarship the 1st one that comes up. If Brent Benedict is not injured or it’s not a bad injury as this one, and he tells you that your S&C sucks big-time, don’t run the press and tell us how great your S&C is you numbnut only to come back now and recant all that saying it was all Joe Tereshinski II’s problem – certainly not yours. All these years, and now you say it’s Joe Tereshinski II’s fault – junior’s problem ? From 1982 to January 2011, Joe Tereshinski Jr (II), was the assistant film room projection booth operator and Mark Richt promoted him from that to Strength and Conditioning Coordinator January 2011. Players, coaches, pundits, color commentators and fans have pointed-out to Mark Richt the glaring issues on BOTH lines for example, and the myriad of warm-up technique non-necessary preventable injuries to stubborn ole Mark Richt. What does Mark Richt do ? He has bragged about Joe Tereshinski II (Junior) since the criticism started, stubborn as ever. He has disagreed with EVERYONE, and quickly changes the subject. Put his cushy damn job of $ 3.5 million on the line, and he FIRES HIM INSTANTLY. Not even a plan for replacement. I presume this means then Mark Richt that Brent Benedict was right after all in 2011 when he came to your office and told you all this, then, sir ? And, that you were wrong all along with all your hog shit manure you’ve shoveled to us since 2011 about our Strength and Conditioning as a damn Strength somehow Mark Richt ? Like everything else, which is it Mark Richt ? You said to the fan in Macon you knew what you are doing : “I know what the Hell I am doing,” you said. Really ? According to whom ? Because I cannot By God, find ANYONE who thinks you do know what the hell you are doing, and that includes now yourself as well Mark Richt. Which is it Mark Richt ? You know what the hell you’re doing, or this was all wrong from the beginning ? Which is it please sir ? OL+Brent Benedict+RFr.+Transferred to Virginia Tech

(18)S 59 Marc Deas – Derrick Lott announced he was transferring and Marc Deas followed the next day with the same. “With the news of the possible suspensions in the future for All-American safety Bacarri Rambo and starting linebacker Alec Ogletree due to drug violations, along with the suspensions of cornerbacks Sanders Commings and Branden Smith, Deas’ decision comes as bit of a surprise. Beyond Rambo and Shawn Williams, Georgia does not have a lot of depth at the safety position, which makes Deas’ choice to leave Georgia a bit of a mystery even to Richt. The loss of yet another player has also put Georgia in bit of a situation personnel-wise.” “You need as full of a boat as you can have,” Richt said. “You want to make sure you have enough guys out there to do all your special team work and everything. That’s part of the reason why we are making sure everyone is getting reps.”
(19)DE 30 Jalen Fields – failed to qualify here but inflated Mark Richt’s recruiting average like so many too many of these others as well, it was widely known he did not have the grades to get in, spent years at Georgia Military and then years at Louisiana Lafayette, then their coach said they parted mutually before 2014 season just quitting there as a back-up.
(21)RB 1 Isaiah Crowell – Dream Team Isaiah Crowell was given a scholarship because Washaun Ealey’s arrests/suspensions/kicked-off who then was replaced by Caleb King’s arrests/suspensions/kicked-off. Enter Isaiah Crowell, who was arrested on a felony weapons’ charge. Crowell also said teammates Blake Tibbs, Quintavius Harrow, Josh Harvey-Clemons and Sheldon Dawson, who were passengers in the car, had just left a club called Aftermath, according to the police report. The arresting Athens-Clarke County Police officer also stated she smelled marijuana inside the 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis that Crowell was driving. Crowell said they were drunk. Crowell had been suspended for the 1st Quarter October 15, 2011 and then was suspended the whole game November 5, 2011, both prior to this incident and there were MANY incidents on the field as well leading to all of us standing up and booing the kid. The entire crowd, both teams, stood up and booed with us at the Georgia Dome when we LOST 10-42 to LSU in The SEC Championship Game, widely described by Mark Richt Apologists as something Great Mark Richt did that he won The SEC East to get us there. There were other incidents too. We played Florida October 29th, and Thursday 27 October he failed a drug test, but was allowed to play against Florida 2 days’ later despite the double-blind positive drug test, which caused him to be suspended not October 29 for Florida but November 5 for New Mexico State college. Isaiah Crowell the # 1 RB in the nation of Carver Columbus was the LEADING RUSHER for both teams, Georgia AND Florida, getting the most rushes and the most rushing yards in a narrow 4-point win for Mark Richt. THEN, he was suspended AFTER the Florida game for failing the drug test Thursday prior to the game. Defenders of Mark Richt said they could not convict Isaiah Crowell, despite all the evidence prior as well, and despite the double-blind NCAA conducted drug test Thursday prior to Florida game Saturday because he was INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. Obviously, they have never had the NCAA mandated drug test where it simply is not possible that either were innocent, and Mark Richt knew all that Saturday October 29, 3 days’ after the failed drug test by Carlton Thomas and Isiah Crowell, a mandatory at least 1-game suspension according to The University of Georgia WRITTEN POLICY – written by Mike Adam$ after all these arrests/suspensions/kicked-off gave HIM the Fulmer Cup National Championship in a season Georgia would start out # 1 and end # 13 in the AP Poll – had they started # 13, they would have ended-up outside the Top 25 – it was that bad – also described variously by Mark Richt Apologists as a GREAT SEASON, which it wasn’t by ANY stretch of the imagination. Was it ? Carlton Thomas and Isaiah Crowell, BOTH failed that drug test Thursday before Florida and BOTH were suspended for New Mexico State, not Florida, by Mark Richt who could’ve suspended them forthwith for either. Carlton Thomas also played against Florida. At the time, we ALL called for both to be suspended for the Florida game. We all found out about the failed drug test that Thursday night from Tweets from the players, and from the discussion again on the team bus leaving to Florida that they had FAILED THE DRUG TEST. This was improperly handled by Mark Richt, too. Wasn’t it ? Mark Richt LOST 4 games this season, BOTH of the 1st two games and BOTH of the last 2 games of 2011. It was NOT pretty sight all these mounting LOSSES and all these arrests/suspensions/kicked-off all 2011 season as well. It has been on-going never ending after 2007 for Mark Richt. Mark Richt kept sending mixed messages to the troubled-child in his doghouse and out of it all season long, seemingly every game; where even when he was playing, he seemed to be dogging it on the field according to teammates and most especially according to all of us fans AT THE GAMES like me. We even bought a Bust Boise T-Shirt at the Georgia Dome Game. Want it ? I’ll pay you $ 25 to take it. I am ashamed to even do yard work in it. Kicked off team by Mark Richt FINALLY, transferred to Alabama State college whatever that is, and now Cleveland Bad-Boys NFL where he has rushed for 546 yards this his rookie season there with Cleveland Browns December 15, 2014. It’s all a sordid mess for a player recruited by other schools, but whom Mark Richt signed and then kept sending mixed and contradictory messages to the kid. Interesting how the same very kid could have no issues with the coach at Alabama State or Cleveland. Isn’t it ? Dad laid the law down at our house, and Dad’s Dad was a Baptist Preacher. Every football coach I have ever heard of lays the law down, except Mark Richt who continues on, happy as a pig in shit, telling his recruits he signs that he LOVES them when he kicks them off. Mark Richt kicked Jasper Sanks of the team, and a month ago, Jasper Sanks said Mark Richt turned his back on Jasper Sanks, who it has been proven did NOT fumble against Georgie tek, as I said at the very moment it was called a fumble. Mark Richt because of his RELIGION, does not know how to teach the recruits to obey the rules. Obeying the rules is the definition of DISCIPLINE. We had discipline in our house of 7 from my Dad. Punishment is a punitive measure by those who are RESPONSIBLE for teaching discipline, which is not discipline but the end result for not teaching discipline. Mark Richt Apologists have NEVER LOOKED-UP THE WORD DISCIPLINE and to the day, still call punishment discipline, when Discipline is teaching to obey the rules, and punishment a punitive measure applied when the person to whom it REPRESENTS POORLY, punishes the kid harshly for their OWN FAILURE to teach the kids to obey. Funny isn’t it that some people obey the rules and others get confused, and do not obey the same authority. Trust me, all 7 of us represented our family when we were anywhere. We answer to the family, still, and always. Washaun Ealey before Isiah Crowell was arrested leaving scene of accident, failed to show-up for disciplinary running, suspended multiple times by Mark Richt for violation of team rules, asked to transfer by Mark Richt by mutual agreement, transferred to Jacksonville State, arrested there on drug possession charges. And, before Isaiah Crowell, Caleb King too was arrested multiple times including DUI here at UGA, flunked-out after all that lax program we run here where anything goes, kicked-off, went to NFL Vikings where he also was arrested and kicked-off.

He was worn-out beyond all get-out, and it was a bitter cold windy day – Mark Richt criticized widely for leaving him in, did not do so next game with Nick Chubb. Has ins policy paid for by UGA which he no doubt will have to invoke in the NFL Draft he was going to be a Top 8 pick in – announced from hospital he is the only Bulldog to say he will declare for early entry into the NFL Draft. Mark Richt would be liable if Todd sues him personally in addition for gross negligence.

(64)TE 18 Ty Flournoy-Smith – arrested for filing false report of a crime, then Josh-Harvey Clemons admitted to UGA police that Josh had been doing drugs in his room and Ty was in the room with Josh – so Ty was kicked-off the team and Josh was given a 1-game suspension for the opening game for this offense that cost Ty his scholarship here and got Ty kicked-off the team. The police report read that the dorm room wreaked of drugs that permeated the hallways. Had this gone in Colorado, Oregon Washington, and Alaska this incident would have been illegal because of their age. In ADDITION to all that, the books he said were stolen in a sworn police report, were turned-in by him for cash later. Ty Flournoy-Smith is Tight End Alabama 2014 playing in the play-offs and # 1 in the nation.

(79)S 34 Paris Bostick – Safety/Linebacker – Mutually Transferred-out 2014 to Iowa Western Community College, forced out, forced transfer. Butted heads with Mark Richt in bold fashion. I’ve done that myself. If you have, it is because of me. “I mean, best of luck to all the other recruits and everybody who’s up there, but I’m not coming up there to sit on the bench and wait my turn. That’s not me.” Jerked around from Safety to Inside Linebacker and buried at that position with all the issues we have in the secondary, quite obviously. Quit. Forced Out. Both. He did not want to be buried on depth chart at ILB but PLAY in the completely depleted Secondary. This one is on Mark Richt too, and he and he alone, as he is the coach. It ALL REFLECTS on Mark Richt and his mismanagement of the talent. Doesn’t it ? When it is THIS PREVALENT, and at positions of needs, Mark Richt’s REPEATED STUBBORNNESS, is a character flaw caused by his Christian Beliefs where Mark Richt is sure he is Forgiven, so he does whatever the Hell he wants to do, even though it is in DIRECT CONFLICT with his $ 3.5 million CALLING, supposedly to be our head coach – not some damn Christian Minister. I go to Church, but I would not make these decisions. This is because I am balanced and know that being a preacher like Grand Dad is NOT my calling in life. His, yes sir. That’s fine, but do NOT make decisions that are directly because you THINK you are a PREACHER when what you SAID your calling is is to coach our kids. There is NOTHING we adhere to here more important than winning and making decisions which lead to success on the football field and off the field representing YOU MARK RICHT and us well, both on the field and off. You just don’t get it Mark Richt. Quit coaching and preach, sir. Quit the charades. I am not in the least bit fooled by your RELIGION Mark Richt. Know why ? I have spent MORE time in Church than you have Mark Richt, only led to the Lord by Bobby Bowden and that not long ago. You’re just confused Mark Richt and NOT CENTERED, sir. You also have not done shit after 2007. What’s that all about ? 2011 was not the only year Mark Richt had no OL. He had the same problem 4 previous times, and each time went out ONLY THEN and recruited 7 OL in one season. That’s just bullshit Mark Richt. 2008, you had this problem with your OL. 2002, you had this problem with your OL. 2003, you had this problem with your OL. 2004, you had this problem with your OL. Why the same recurring problems with your OL, Mark Richt, son ? What’s the deal here ? Can’t you communicate Mark Richt ? You surely struggle with communicating with the Press, too, don’t you ? Remember the fan in Macon, you quipped back to with I know what the Hell I am doing. Remember ? All this storm from ALL THESE OLD-SCHOOL BULLDOG FANS, and yes 1 guy has been dogged in this from the get-go : ME ! And, Mark Richt in his stubbornness, has made NO EFFORT to communicate with the base who PAY HIM $ 3.5 million a year. Know why ? Because he is freaking stubborn. By the way, stubborn is not a Christian personality trait; in fact, it is completely the OPPOSITE of Christian personality traits. Christians are NOT stubborn. Christians are completely the opposite of stubborn.

Transfer Georgie tek – obviously, they NEVER let us have 1 of their players who quits their team but for some really odd reason, we allow very talented players who started for us this season – J.J. Green – to transfer to Georgie tek. All we ever did with this talent was jerk him around here, and he is a crowd favorite who kept his nose clean and stayed out of trouble. Fine young man. Excellent football player, EVERY position, they jerked him around to and from. 2-way player. Probable NFL Draft Pick. Good guy. Put up with a lot of crap here, which the coaches pulled on HIM.

This 2015 Recruiting Class, Darnell Salomon is arrested felony burglary on recruiting invite here July 23, 2014. The beat goes on, and the losses therewith.
This 2015 Recruiting Class will end up the # 8 in the nation, which is what Mark Richt averages 2001-2014.
But, is it really ?
Isn’t Mark Richt really with only 73 of these 119 remaining to play in the bowl game all he has left of the 119 he signed who with a redshirt year would be playing, just double-dipping himself ? Isn’t he just replacing those who are arrested/suspended/kicked-off ? Isn’t that really what we do and have been doing after 2007 here, while we lose as a result ? While our dumbass head coach tells us that we have something more important than winning we do here at Georgia.
We do ?
Yeah, replace all the arrested/suspended/kicked-off. It’s a full-time job by itself, never mind the dumbass coach thinks his calling is not to be head coach UGA but preacher man.
What will we do next year ?
It will not be one damn bit different, at all. Will it ? Come on now, you can say it !
Based on what we’ve seen after 2007, Mark Richt will lose inexplicable losses to despicably lousy not nearly as talented teams, and not be competitive with the very top teams either, oh, and we will have a year 2015 with bad press of arrests/suspensions/kicked-off and more lies about all of this.
Drink the Kool-Aid. This guy has become one bad coach on and off the field, hasn’t he after 2007 ?
The 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era 2008-2014. What he did do 2001-2007 was so long ago, it’s not relevant any more :
2001 Miami won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Larry Coker 1st year as head coach.
2002 Ohio State won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Jim Tressel 2nd year as head coach. This while Mark Richt went 0-13 on 3rd Down vs unranked final AP Poll Florida and lost to that lousy team.
2003 LSU won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 4th year as head coach.
2004 Auburn* won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Tommy Tuberville in his 5th year as head coach.
2005 Texas won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Mack Brown in his 8th year as head coach.
2006 Florida won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Urban Meyer in his 2nd year as head coach.
2007 LSU won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Les Miles in his 3rd year as head coach. This while Mark Richt lost not only to lousy vols team in a blow-out by 3 TD, but also lost to 6-6 South Carolina who did not even go to a bowl game. There is no way Mark Richt deserved to play for the NC compared to LSU who beat 7 ranked teams. No sir.
2008 Florida won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Urban Meyer in his 4th year as head coach.
2009 Alabama won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 3rd year as head coach.
2010 Alabama won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 4th year as head coach.
2011 Auburn won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Gene Chizik in his 3rd year as head coach behind Cam Newton Heisman Trophy QB now NFL fame, who dumbass Mark Richt recruited as a damned Tight End and told Cam so. Cam Newton was no more arrested at Florida for stealing a lap top and throwing it out a dorm window into a dumpster than Nick Marshall was arrested stealing over $ 500 cash from the locker room because our Chief of Police here was interviewed and he said NO ONE CALLED THE POLICE on Nick Marshall et all, even though it was a felony.
2012 Alabama won a 3rd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 5th year as head coach.
2013 Florida State won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Jimbo Fisher in his 4th year as head coach.
Alabama 7th year of their head coach, Oregon Mark Helfrich in his 2nd year as head coach, FSU 5th year of their head coach, or Ohio State Urban Meyer in his 3rd year as their head coach will win 2014 national championship.
Mark Richt era 2001-2014, fourteen seasons, average number of years it took this century for a coach to win national championship is 3 years.
48 divided by 13 years is 3.69 years it took all the teams of this century to win a nc with a new head coach. We’ve had ours 15 years next year. Time is up ? No improvement ? In fact, all the same mistakes all 15 years ? Losses all 14 seasons to-date against less-talented worse ranked teams, inexplicable losses all 14 years for Mark Richt ? Yes.
“He is a wonderful guy. He’s a good Christian guy. He wants to be a missionary, goes on mission trips. That’s a wonderful thing. But do you know the religion of Nick Saban? Gus Malzahn? Or Chip Kelly, playing for the national championship? I don’t think we care what their religion is. That’s their business. But we hire them to be football coaches. If we are going to hire a religious instructor, let’s go to the Candler School of Theology…and get some of their people to come coach our football team.” College and Pro Hall of Fame Fran Tarkenton. “I think Greg McGarity has got to look at this awfully hard. I think the signs are that we have a program that’s in big trouble.” Dawgbone Index does not give you URL Links to Fran Tarkenton’s WebPages anymore. Want to know why ? “We either didn’t choose right or we didn’t coach right, because we didn’t have success,” Fran tells us. Better to drink the Kool-Aid of the one-sided purposeful censorship of Fran Tarkenton by Dawgbone Index, like that is the only source of Bulldogs’ News. Hardly, in fact, I use it only to find bullshit from the bullshit crew to lambaste from pillar to post.
Because I sure as Hell am not happy with this damned program right now, on or off the field.
It’s coaching. We have plenty of talent. Talent everyone else recruited as well, only when they come here they are given mixed messages contradictory to winning and having a team morale that is ready to play every week and wants to play to their best that EVERY game. In fact, Mark Richt tells our players, all of them, exactly the opposite of that, that no matter what they do or ever will do, he LOVES them. How in the Hell does that teach them to obey, Pray Tell dumbass ?
I’m the only 1 ? Fran Tarkenton is the only 1 ? Have you read what Todd Gurley II said about how mediocre we are and how sick and tired he is of it ? It’s bullshit what’s going on, and I am calling you out Mark Richt. Get with the program or hit the highway, and I hold no hope with your Stubborn disposition that there is any way in Hell that you can all of sudden get with it. You’re not capable of it. Your goals are those of a preacher man. I love preachers, but I have yet to see a preacher coach a major college football program. Ever.
There’s something here at Georgia that is MORE IMPORTANT THAN WINNING, you bragged 2 weeks’ ago Mark Richt. Ah, shucks Mark, what is it ? I give up ?
Does this look like this is a problem here ? Well, does it ? Here is the summary on this page alone, players who with a redshirt year would be playing in this 3rd tier bowl game December 30 with only 2 SEC teams playing before us this entire bowl season :
5 Failed to Qualify
12 Suspended, some up to 3 times.
2 Bad Attitude
1 Questionable Medical Disqualification for kid with nothing but drug problems & brother
23 Quit or Transferred
15 Arrested, again, some multiple times
2 Injured after offer, ended-up Medical Disqualification
4 Medical Disqualification
Note some made multiple categories here, lighting up all the bells and whistles – such as Arrested/Suspended/Kicked-Off or Suspended/Transferred – therefore, since these are not mutually exclusive categories, there were not 80 who had one or more of these categories checked-off; but by God Above there are 80 in these categories – sometimes checking-off multiple categories. URL Links are provided to each. Macon.com ran a similar study a few years’ ago for Georgia, and it was not a pretty sight either.
Think we have no problem here ? That would be impossible to pass-off on anyone, wouldn’t it ? I knew it was this bad before I started, living each of these Mark Richt incidents, and just be glad that I did not give the details of all these losses here and the reason I did not is because I have already covered that detail on this blog for you with URL Link too, but I will leave you with that URL Link again here now to close because who we’ve lost to is clearly very very bad :
Lost to 6 teams who were not ranked for the year they beat us in either the AP or Coaches’ Final Polls, even with their win over us – unranked either poll :
2009 LOST vols a 6-Loss team 19-45, unranked either poll for season
2009 LOST Ky 6-Loss team home 27-34, unranked either poll season
2010 LOST Colorado 5-7 by 27-29 unranked either poll season fired coach
2010 LOST Florida 5-Loss team 31-34, unranked either poll season coach quit
2014 LOST 6-6 South Carolina, unranked either poll for the season
2014 LOST 6-5 Florida, unranked either poll for season, fired coach
In addition to losing to these 6 who were not ranked in either Final AP or Coaches’ Polls :
LOST Okie State 2009 who was NOT RANKED Final AP Poll even with win
LOST Central Florida 2010 who was NOT RANKED time of game AP Poll
LOST Vandie 2013 who was NOT RANKED either poll time of game coach quit
LOST Nebraska 2013 not ranked either poll time of game not ranked Final AP fired coach
In Total after 2007 – the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era – he has LOST to 10 teams who :
(1) either did not make the final polls for the season or
(2) were unranked at time of game when they beat him or
(3) even with win over Mark Richt did not make the Final AP Poll Top 25
LOST 10 games he SHOULD’VE NEVER LOST in 7-year period to teams far less talented who were LOUSY TEAMS, inexplicable losses.
God Almighty – that’s all I’ve got to say.
God Almighty damn !
Obsequious Georgia Bulldog Fans (really just Mark Richt Apologists) just make Mark Richt’s job a cushy damn job, don’t they ? Why do we settle for this shit ? Why do we allow these Obsequious Fans to NOT ALLOW us to discuss religion when discussing Mark Richt ? What the friq’ is that all about, when that is exactly what is wrong with the coach Mark Richt – not the man – the damn coach. All of his problems on and OFF the field, are ALL related to his religious bullshit. Nothing else. Just his religious hang-ups. They contradict and counter-mind what his goals here are. On lax discipline, religious zealots always are wimpy about teaching even their own kids to obey the rules; they believe that they are forgiven – therefore, they do not concern themselves when their children do not obey – shit, they tell their own kids when their own kids do exactly that which they do not want them to do that’s it’s ok – they LOVE them anyway. What total abject hogwash approach to teaching them to obey the rules is that ? It sends really not even a mixed message, but sends a conflicting message directly diametrically opposed message to the message they really wanted to send on obeying the damn rules.
Mark Richt is FORGIVEN for all this crap going on on and off the field for us the latest 7 years here ?
The friqin’ Hell he is.
He has 2 masters. Really, everyone knows Mark Richt only has 1 master : Jesus Christ. Nothing else. Never has been anything else. We cannot discuss this ? Excuse the Hell out of me, we cannot discuss this. We sure as Hell can discuss this. Mark Richt does not care about winning – that much is patently obvious not only from his own direct quotes such as there is something more important than winning here that we adhere to here at Georgia. The freaking HELL there is ! When he should be preparing the team to GATA against our # 1 Rival Florida, he spends his time praying to Jesus Christ, and really doesn’t give a shit if we win or lose which is why he’s 5-9 against Florida. This is the whole entire problem with our football team right now that there is NO SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, and that Mark Richt can hold dear as more important than winning, something HIGHER he claims as our $ 3.5 million annually head coach. We do not pay him $ 4 million of my hard earned monies to have some other more important than winning here, objective. If he wants to be a damned preacher, have the friqin’ damn Church pay him $ 4 million a year, and we will go find another “COACH” who can do better than the results provided to you with URL Link by me here on this blog post. I am fed-up with the holier than thou friqin’ Christians telling us all what we CAN and CANNOT discuss about Mark Richt. He’s flawed and its sole cause is his Religion. He’s out of balance. His calling is NOT PREACHER. His calling is COACH of Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Team – there is NOTHING that should interfere with that ! NOTHING. He wants to go to Church on Sunday ? Fine, I do too. But, I damn sure don’t sit there feeling FORGIVEN that in my calling, I always admit AFTER another INEXPLICABLE LOSS that well, I was thinking about something else on the sidelines and screwed-up, AGAIN. He doesn’t think about football; he thinks about Jesus Christ. Get the picture, get it right in your mind, that to discuss Mark Richt without discussing his religion is something the religious zealots who want to control what you TALK ABOUT and what you THINK ABOUT our football team, will not allow you to talk about. When anyone anywhere anytime tells you what you CANNOT discuss, ask yourself if you intend to SUPPORT such a site ? I’m not stupid, not with a 3.88 GPA at UGA. This is the whole underlying uncontested topic that must be discussed. Am I getting through to ANY of you, or you intend to be told what you can and cannot discuss by someone who obviously does not want THIS DISCUSSION RIGHT HERE ?
Are you friqin’ tired yet of being told what you can and cannot say about our football program ?
Especially when that very topic is EXACTLY the ONLY PROBLEM we have on and off the field ?
Excuse me ? I cannot talk about this ?
Forget you then, for I will be damned if I will not discuss this exact specific topic any damn way I want.
Mark Richt is not our college football coach at The University of Georgia – this is NOT his calling here. He has a different calling. He only uses his position and monies from this subservient lesser importance not primary job in life for him, to further his more important to him goals – all of which are completely in contradiction to winning football games and teaching his recruits to obey the rules on and off the field.
This is why EVERYTHING on this page has happened to our football team.
Therefore the religious zealots tell you you cannot discuss religion on topics online about UGA football and Mark Richt. You have to mind your words about the dumbass decisions Mark Richt has made, because those decisions were not made with winning in football here as their objective.
You better think about this, talk about this, get this out in the open, if you intend to do more in talking about Georgia Bulldogs’ Football under Mark Richt than to be told that which you cannot discuss for obvious reasons.
What in the hell has happened to us the last 7 years ?
Mark Richt just told us all. I have a question, is that true with our 29 Losses current 7-year period, an average of more than 4 Losses a season for 7-year period today ? Coupled with our 15 arrested/suspended/kicked-off this 2014 year alone, I find this utter bullshit. How about you ? Is Mark Richt trying to control what we think, as some damn master manipulator ? I just think he is full of shit, personally. But, you are welcome to your opinion that we pay him $ 3.5 million a year, and that HE is held to some OTHER standard, other than (1) Win and (2) Keep the recruits out of the bad press, by teaching them to obey the rules. I mean HE is the one who got all the credit for the recruits to come here. How can it be someone else’s problem than his and his alone that he teach them to obey the rules, have them ready to play, not take 3 lesser opponents USCe, FL and Georgie tek lightly, keep them out of the bad press, and win ? Do you really buy in on this ? Do you ?
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations and you are not in this world to live up to mine. I am I and you are you, and if by chance we meet : It’s beautiful. Dr. Fritz Perls.
You have an entire thread about how bad this program is right now, and all the under-lying problems and one little shit, Scooby-Doo, inserts his 2 cents into it that aw shucks 9-3 doesn’t seem that bad to me, and Mark Richt will have no problem finding another job.
Either make your friqin’ point, Junkyard Dawg, or do not. I could care how you go about it. But, I will be dipped in shit if you are going to say that there is some decorum to which you adhere I don’t that says that you can call me out for mistreating poor little Scooby-Doo for giving us the company line that all is well in Athens, everything is positive, we’re doing great, and Mark Richt is the best coach in America who does it the right way on and off the field. We are in our 3rd longest stretch dating back to 1932 were we’ve NOT won The SEC Championship in Football. We have tremendous talent in-state and should NOT be losing to unranked teams as often as we do every year and should not be losing to top 15 teams at the rate of # 45 in the nation either these last 8 years. I don’t give a shit what Mark Richt did 2001-2007 as I loved him then too and still do really – I just want his sorry ass held accountable or fired for LOSING after 2007. Losing to any ole team who even makes a bowl that season he loses to them at barely over 50% after 2007. And I want you God Damn Mark Richt Apologists to HEED my point that you are in a defenseless position saying Mark Richt IS great when he HASN’T BEEN after 2007, has he ?
It does not matter how good we are, he can’t beat anyone after 2007.
Hold him accountable to WIN.
Fire him when he keeps this up as he has after 2007, for which YOU alone defend him : Just the Mark Richt Apologists.
Guess what ?
I will ram it down your God Damned Throats that Mark Richt I once supported and now don’t and WANT GONE.
Your blog Dawgs.com will NOT ALLOW ANY discussion of Mark Richt and Religion together as a discussion. God Damn IT that is the WHOLE PROBLEM here that HE THINKS there is some other more important goal than winning.
There is NOT.
Our Depth Chart is so decimated as I detailed yesterday that we can not possibly win.
You are DISNEYdawgs.com fans to think Mark Richt can turn this around. He doesn’t even want to. He doesn’t care. Fire his sorry ass.
Quite defending him.
YOU LOST this argument to me and you KNOW IT !
Where will the LOT of you be when he is FIRED ?
Nowhere to be found ?
You’re God Damn Right you will be.
And STILL telling us then that he was a nice guy.
I say he is a nice guy.
And a shitty assed coach who has to be FIRED.
Fran Tarkenton has been telling you we need to FIRE him.
We don’t even practice Special Teams at the G-Day Games and yet without a special teams’ coach as 100 of his peers FBS Division 1-A have, he routinely has the # 100 Special Teams. He doesn’t care. Trophy for EVERYONE.
At best he is stupid as shit.
At the worst he is using his public office to stump for his Religion.
In EITHER CASE, his pay of $ 3.5 million a year is for winning.
He has transferred-out great talent playing us in games and BEATING the shit out of us.
If we EVER want to win our 7th NC in Football we MUST fire Mark Richt.
Mark Richt has been a total abject failure at 68 % win percentage after 2007 with the # 9 average recruiting ranking with 8 losses who are not Top 25 teams, and won only 10 of 33 who made either the AP or Coaches’ Top 25, while only 4 of 20 teams he faced who were ranked higher than him this current 7-year period has he beat. This while I have documented 40 attrition all of which was ALL NOTHING BUT BAD PRESS in the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era, alone. And, while I have documented fifteen (15) arrested/suspended/kicked-off just in 2014 alone so far.
You do not have to agree with me. You are you. I, however, am given the God-Given Right to My Own Friqin’ Opinion and no man of your stature sir, shall deprive me of this.
I refer you sir to the following piece, again by Bill Shanks of the Macon Telegraph :
“There’s something besides winning that’s important here”
Mark Richt just got out of his lying lips.
I refer YOU, Junkyard Dawg sir, AND Scooby-Doo, to read this article this time, gentlemen.
As for how much you appreciate the others defending Scooby-Doo and his ilk who run onto every Bulldogs’ blog and tell us how GREAT Mark Richt is, and how to frame it when they cannot possibly make the case that Mark Richt has been great in his 2nd half of his career here, I saw dawgs_fans_dad say that EVERYONE ELSE recruited all these arrested/suspended/kicked-off too.
Pardon me, but they GOT INTO TROUBLE HERE, where Mark Richt is given such high praise for recruiting them here, where HE Mark Richt does NOT teach them to obey the rules.
Teach them to obey the rules is the definition of discipline.
No matter how many times I teach you and they this, you and they will NEVER GET IT.
That’s not my fault.
They say, after he kicks them off the team here, that Mark Richt TURNED HIS BACK ON THEM.
Punishment is NOT discipline, but once again, discipline is teaching to obey the rules.
We run a lax ship here, and have for 14 seasons, marked by BAD PRESS and BAD LOSSES all 14 seasons, bar none.
I have read what you have written and what dawgs_fans_dad has written and what Scooby-Doo has written Junkyard Dawg, sir. None of the 3 of you give the details. None of the 3 of you stick to the point. None of the 3 of you hit the nail on the head. None of the 3 of you have done the research. None of the 3 of you have provided the 1st ever URL Link to prove your point.
That is ALL I do here.
You offer opinion Junkyard Dawg. But those are like assholes : Everybody has one.
I offer detailed research and facts with URL Links to verify the facts. I offer it right up front before I am asked.
Readers of this blog, CLICK the damn URL Links. They see the facts.
We know the facts, here – all the 20,000 readers of this blog. I know. I get a report of their CLICKS of the URL Links.
We are not afraid of going 6-6 some season, as Scooby-Doo scolds us we might without Mark Richt.
As I rightfully said to the little shit and now again to you asshole, Mark Richt was 6-7 just in 2010.
Worry about going 6-6 some fictitious season in the future, maybe, as to why not make this such a cushy damn job where this is acceptable – nay, lauded as GREAT ?
You defend this ?
Re-read what it was exactly that Scooby-Doo said that caused me to reply to him, not to you ok ? Read it if you’re man enough. He says he is NOT a Bulldogs’ Football Program Fan and NEVER HAS BEEN. That his Daddy made him go the games, and that now, he does NOT go to the games, as I and the rest of us, do, in fact go to the games. He EVEN said he DOES NOT GIVE A SHIT about our program.
He ONLY is a Mark Richt Apologist.
He NEVER was ANYTHING ELSE.
He NEVER ever WILL BE anything, but.
Fine, sir. You want to laud others for defending him. Go ahead. Bring it freaking on.
Step right up son !
By the way, the manner to deal with posts online is to : NOT CENSOR.
Ban the post ? Remove the post ? Say the post is WRONG and DELETE IT ?
Not here, sir. Not on my damn blog son.
You sir, are NEVER GOING TO BE IN CHARGE OF ME.
Not now, not ever.
I am an ultra magnanimous person. I allow and champion others’ RIGHT to speak their mind, whether I agree or do not. I think our recruits are actually very well educated and well-read, and KNOW all this. I therefore think this should be out in the open and all of us discuss this.
dawgs_fans_dad No, sir. You are not a celebrity but a guy who called me out for being over the top to Scooby-Doo when Scooby-Doo you defend therein said right then in THAT POST that he really doesn’t care about our football program, does not go to the games, and only when his daddy made him go as a child did he go, and even then hated it. You AGREE with people like this dawgs_fans_dad because of your over-the-top criticism of me for 2 long decades of online posting going all the way back to Athens Online, and Access Atlanta. You have NEVER supported MY RIGHT to MY OPINION ever on Bulldogs. This is who you are : Not a celebrity son. You’re a bitter person who believes only your own opinion matters and that others’ and certainly not your own – stinks to high heaven. You post to CENSORED BLOGS ONLY where no one is allowed to really reply.
You are just bitter that I speak my mind and want to control what I say. You want to ban, censor and make my comments your own or remove them. That is all you have EVER wanted dawgs_fans_dad . Maybe you do not know who I am. But, I sir know who you are from all of our discussions for many many decades online. I remember better than you remember. You will NOT tell me what I can and cannot think and say, sir. I never have attempted or even suggested the same for you, sir !
You are not my mother.
You do not like it that I think it wrong that Joe Cox played the whole game against Okie State and no snap even for Zach Mettenberger as I called pre-game because I frigin’ hated Joe Cox. You think you’re right and that I have no right to such an opinion. I said the same about Joe Tereshinski III starting instead of Matthew Stafford. And, I said the same about Hutson Mason starting instead of Jacob Park and Brice Ramsey – hell, even instead of Faton Bauta – all 3 of whom would NEVER HAVE LOST to USCe, Florida and Georgie tek.
You think I have a right to speak up to a point.
That I go over that line when I Heaven Forbid criticize a damn player.
I am not some player’s here dad, but a walk-on myself. I have favorites. I have those who I criticize because they By God have it coming.
Were I Joe Cox, I would’ve told Mark Richt I cannot go full tilt, but Zach Mettenberger will do better than I on this day, sir.
Were I Joe Tereshinski III, I would’ve told Mark Richt, can I sit-out today and you play Matthew Stafford ? I’ve spoken with him and told him I think he’s better than I.
Were I Hutson Mason, I would’ve told Mark Richt I appreciate you holding me on like this and all and that that is the only reason I did not transfer to South Carolina State college, but both Jacob Park and Brice Ramsey and probably Faton Bauta are ALL better quarterbacks than I who run the ball better than I and who certainly throw the ball better than I as a college QB, Mark Richt sir. I’d love to play some, but please start ANY of them instead. I’m a Bulldog.
I am a Bulldog.
You’re a bullshitter who wants only to control. To criticize not my ideas, but that my entire post should be banned, censored, deleted.
Excuse the hell out of me, but YOU do say and would say that the other QB listed by me just now in this section of this blog today, are ALL BETTER than the 1 you SAID I should NOT BE ALLOWED to criticize. You say the reason for that is that THEY were not paid with a scholarship I pay for for them, and which I did NOT have at UGA which my roommate, did.
I think I am entitled to my opinion, dawgs_fans_dad and I do not give a shit what you think about it since you agree with me and obviously only have a hard on to censor me from mine while of course your own is just fine with you.
It doesn’t matter what I say : You’re not going to like it.
Stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.
I will say what I want to say, and I do not have to conform to your weird incongruities and non-sequitur logic.
Moreover, if you have something to say to me, say it to me – not to someone else about me.
Being the complete be-in-charge guy you are, that doesn’t even register on your screen. Celebrity ? Son, you are so not a celebrity as reading you say today you are because of this blog post right here, makes me puke.
Now, go say whatever you want to say behind my back such as you didn’t say any of this.
Sure, you did. It’s all you’ve ever said online to ANYONE any time.
That you have the right to say whatever you want and NO ONE ELSE !
No matter how illogical.
Because well, yours doesn’t stink to high heaven – just everyone else’s.
Now, if you have the guts to criticize me – do so here to my friqin’ damn face, not behind my back to someone else – like there is a DAMN THING IN THE WHOLE WORLD WRONG with me saying ONLY Hutson Mason on our roster could have POSSIBLY lost to Nebraska, South Carolina, Florida or Georgie tek – let alone all 4.
JUST AS EVERYONE DID REPLY TO YOU dawgs_fans_dad that I am not NEARLY the only to have the audacity to offer-up on MY OWN DAMN BLOG RIGHT HERE, YOU TAKE EXCEPTION to but do not have the decency here to reply to me about when and where I actually made such statements.
MILLIONS OF BULLDOGS’ FANS feel EXACTLY as I on this.
34 unanswered points by our # 1 Rival means Hutson Damn Mason did NOTHING.
His very last pass was a 4-yard pass at the 5-yard line, intercepted.
And, he damn sure was a deer in the friqin’ headlights handed the ball by our Defense 1st and Goal from the 4-yard line the end zone covered with debris from the sure-we-would-lose fans.
And, as for Nebraska, he SETTLED for 4 field goals for 12 points instead of 28 points to lose to another unranked team.
Look, dream-up whatever excuse it is I cannot say what I say that you and everyone else says too.
But, get off my case, and try for once to do some research, go to the games and have an opinion of your own – for once.
Once in your lifetime.
As to :
ogredawg Any reply here on this blog where the discussion is unabated is fine. I do not have to adhere to your arbitrary decisions to suggest ban, censor, deletion, or editing – none of which occurs here and which should not be allowed as a topic there, either.
It’s wrong as it is to say that a football coach should be judged on something other than winning and good press.
If my points are correct, as you say they are ogredawg then why again is it that I should post to a censored blog where one can call me out and say it’s wrong therein for me to call someone else out ?
That’s a rhetorical question ogredawg do not feel that you have to reply. It’s obvious as hell.
The Mark Richt Apologists have been VERY VOCAL and nasty as hell to everyone daring to discuss this point, Junkyard Dawg sir. Not that you know this. I do. Others here on this blog reading this do.
On the other hand, I believe rather than CENSOR and bury our heads in the sand that now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their FOOTBALL PROGRAM, not the Christian head coach. 95 % of all of America are Christians. I am a Christian. You are a Christian. He is too. He is ALSO a lax guy on teaching to obey the rules and frequently is side-tracked by ALL THE BAD PRESS, and fails to have his men ready to play at the worst possible moment EVERY YEAR.
THERE IS NO SUCH THEORY : There is something more important than winning here that we adhere to here at Georgia.
Hell, he’s # 20 in Won/Lost Record current 7-year period for Top 10 All-Time Wins UGA Program, averaging more than 4 losses per season for the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era after 2007, which is # 5 in The SEC.
I and you and WE Bulldog Nation pay him $ 3.5 million dollars a year to win.
other than to KEEP HIS RECRUITS HE GETS SUCH HIGH PRAISE FOR BRINGHING HERE out of the BAD PRESS.
He has done NEITHER after 2007, a period of 7 long excruciating years – the 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era, here.
He’s lost 21 games the latest 5-year period, which includes a redshirt year, for the 27 I just detailed will not be on the roster next year who are on the roster today. This list, as I indicated and documented with 51 URL Links in that one (1) blog yesterday does NOT include a single one of the 40 ATTRITION prior to today. This is as detailed as I know how; this is as specific as I am capable; this is as documented proof as I can possibly muster, sir; this is as up-to-date and correct as I can get it for you – and nowhere can you find it better : Sir.
He lost 29 games after 2007, an average no different from his 5-year average of MORE than 4 Losses a season.
Look, guy, believe whatever the hell you want to believe ok son ?
Say, whatever you freaking want to say.
Contradict your point all you wish.
Buddy-up with the Mark Richt Apologists and SUPPORT THEM for I friqin’ care.
But, do not tell me, which is what you did twit, that dawgs_fans_dad you appreciate defending Scooby-Doo with his little crap about how I take this seriously the current state of our dilapidated football program both on the field and off, and he does not. And, that OTHER SCHOOLS RECRUITED all these same recruits which are on my arrested/suspended/kicked-off ATTRITION LIST, when they did not sir get into trouble there but here where the discipline is LAX and where the punishment is HARSH.
I do not require that you agree with my point, and I dare say I do not expect you to agree with it that Mark Richt sucks.
He does, but I welcome your own opinion to that, never mind how defenseless it is in direct contradiction to the KNOWN FACTS presented herein with URL Links, spelled-out in gruesome detail.
There is NO EXCUSE for all the 15 arrested/suspended/kicked-off 2014 alone, sir !
It’s as intolerable as the 8 losses to unranked teams after 2007.
“There’s something besides winning that’s important here”
If you, or Scooby-Doo, or dawgs_fans_dad, Junkyard Dawg, want to censor my enthusiasm on these 2 co-joined points that 73 is all we have left today of 119 signed scholarship recruits YOU gave and still give ALL THE CREDIT to Mark Richt for signing here, who with a redshirt all 119 would play in the bowl game – the 3rd tier December 30 Belk Bowl having only 2 SEC teams play a bowl game BEFORE us this bowl season – and that he’s lost 29 games an average of more than 4 per season for the latest 7 entire freaking horrid friqin’ seasons of bullshit of the highest order on and off the field, you can
(1) Josh Harvey-Clemons – suspension 1 Jan 2014, then suspended for 3 more games to begin 2014 for 2nd offense of drug use January 16, 2014, and then thereafter all that, kicked-off team in February 2014, Louisville. Also, see Ty below for further violations and suspensions of this same player. This is, in all, 4 bad press for this one recruit. A recruit recruited by other teams, as well. It’s not that Mark Richt recruits guys who no one else recruits because they do. It’s that Mark Richt runs a lax ship, no better delineated than with this player. Training them to obey the rules is discipline. Punishment is kicking them off the team, which is not discipline, but turning his back on them they say after they are kicked-off. Mark Richt is given great credit for signing, for example the # 8 recruiting class 2015, but somehow no fault is assigned to Mark Richt in this cushy damn job when they in case after case have multiple arrests/suspensions/kicked-off the team. Of course, all these incidents are ALL a reflection on Mark Richt.
(2) Sheldon Dawson – suspension 1 Jan 2014, then played in 2 games 2014 including Clemson game 1 and then the vols’ game, none after, see below for additional incidents with this player as well.
(3) Shaq Wiggins – arrested 12 January suspended license failure appear & speeding, kicked-off team according to SicEmDawgs, I was told he transferred-out. Sometimes transfers are at our request. Other times, transfers-out are mutually determined to be in the best interest of the signed scholarship recruit. When you lose as many signed scholarship recruits as Mark Richt does, it not only reflects poorly on Mark Richt and the player, but it also causes our recruiting ranking upon which Mark Richt’s reputation is based to be inflated. He over-signs beyond the scholarship limit because he is replacing so many just gone. Those who are gone add to those Drafted by the NFL he recruited here, and cause Mark Richt’s signed scholarship recruits to remain in the bad press. We were told Mark Richt was not going to suspend this player from any game, despite the bad press of his arrest in January, but we are also told this player had a bad attitude in the weight room and got into it with the coaching staff; I do not think there is any question whatsoever that (1) Shaq Wiggins was bad press for Mark Richt and that (2) he was not happy here. None of this is good for recruiting and there damn sure is no addition by subtraction. Addition is addition. Subtraction is subtraction. The only addition by subtraction is negative one.
(4) Uriah LeMay – 4 counts criminal arrest including cashing check of roommate, transfer. You recall, of course, that 1st his brother was kicked-off his high school team AFTER Mark Richt offered him, for his senior season. Mark Richt maintained that scholarship despite the incident. He never played him. He did not want him. But, he maintained the scholarship. Why his unruly little brother thereafter seeing his brother Christian did not play, wanted to come here, is beyond me as I stated at the time. For 5 years, between these 2 brothers, Mark Richt got nothing but bad press and nothing on the field from either. Their father is a preacher, but both kids were nothing but hellions, nothing but bad press, and then in the end both transferred. Mark Richt would’ve done better to have dropped the scholarship offer once Christian LeMay was kicked-off his high school team his senior year. A ruling, by the way, confirmed upon challenge. Apparently, Mark Richt was after this guy all along, because he sure as shit did not want Christian LeMay.
(5) Tray Matthews – took 3 known already cashed checks to bank, criminal arrest, kicked-off team, blessed to be an Auburn Tiger he said June 16, 2014.
(6) James DeLoach – took 2 known already cashed checks to bank, criminal arrest, played a few snaps in 7 games including all 3 to begin 2014 but none of the last 3 games
(7) Jon Taylor – took 2 known already cashed checks to bank, his 1st criminal arrest of 2014, but not his last.
(8) Justin Scott-Wesley WR, arrested last October for marijuana possession, Mark Richt announced 25 March 2014 that “We’ll stay with our policies on that” UGA Policy specifying one-game suspension after returning from injury.
(9) Jon Taylor – arrested felony aggravated assault/family violence July 22, kicked off team. Mark Richt weighed-in on all this and said he wanted press meetings to be about football, not arrests/suspensions/kicked-off, and that if the press were to bring such topic back up, that he would not discuss them, but football. Greg McGarity said he was sick and tired of all the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off and that it reflected poorly on him, Greg McGarity. But, of course, Saint Richt – it does not reflect poorly on him at all. Nah. Not one bit.
(10) Davin Bellamy – arrested DUI July 16 by which time 7 of Mark Richt’s signed scholarship recruits were KNOWN to have been arrested in 2014 alone, suspended Clemson and South Carolina games
(11) Shaquille Jones – signed 2014 recruiting class by Mark Richt 6′ 2″ cornerback from Florida, played against Troy in game 2 as Freshman, arrested for shop-lifting October 5, kicked-off team October 5, 2014
(12) Sheldon Dawson – kicked-off team for arguing with coaches over plays to run and players to play, I’ve had those same issues with the coaches Sheldon Dawson, and Todd Gurley II certainly COULD tell the coaches the same points you argued, and that too is documented to everyone. Different set of rules for some than others. Preferential treatment. Perhaps Mark Richt was punishing Todd Gurley II when he had been unable to play from Oct 4 against Vanderbilt until Nov 15 against Auburn, that he left him out there until the bitter end. What Mark Richt feels is a matter of conjecture; what is not, is that his signed scholarship recruits reflect more poorly on him than they do on Greg McGarity. They absolutely reflect poorly on my diploma and my alma mater. I do not give a shit what you think about addition by subtraction, or that we’re better off without ALL these players. Obviously, that is bullshit given our losses every year to less talented teams – teams who did not recruit with these guys the level of talent we have as indicated by their recruiting rankings of # 9 on the average from 2001-2015 and as proven by their 81 NFL Draft Picks – both # 1 in The SEC and # 2 nationally only to Southern California. The 81 NFL Draft Picks by Mark Richt in his tenure here do NOT include those kicked-off transferred out. He goes after recruiting; he is known for his recruiting; his staff is put together to maximize recruiting; and his results on the field after 2007 are piss poor. I read a sanctioned blog today that said now is a great time to be a Bulldogs’ fan; he actually left my reply on his blog. Imagine that ? Maybe he thought he made his point ? Maybe he knew that it was a hard sell to try to maintain that with all this bad press 2014, losing to Georgie tek with the average # 52 recruiting rankings, and losing to two 6-win teams South Carolina everyone else beat and Florida everyone else beat and even fired their coach the week after beating Mark Richt, that going to the Belk Bowl on Tuesday night December 30 this weenie bowl no SEC team has ever been to, an ACC tie-in bowl, that well maybe his position is just a might off-center. It does, however, point to the fact that these Mark Richt Apologists really will try to frame a season as a great season despite the obvious evidence to the contrary. There is no way, no damn blog is going to paint 2014 as positive for Mark Richt when he himself was so testy all freaking year long over it – both on and off the field. Mark Richt is embattled right now today. Trying to tell me how happy I am right now, ain’t cutting it with me. How about you ? Is this really all you want to be allowed to read, that 2014 is greatest ever for we fans ? Bullshit is what I have to say to that. They want the job to be such a cushy damn job. I want us to fix this shit. There is no middle ground. There were numerous other suspensions 2014 but Mark Richt covered them up because the bad press was so bad and is so bad, that any more would have been intolerable for Mark Richt because Mark Richt damn sure knows this all reflects more poorly on him than anyone that so many did so much to ruin the reputation of The University of Georgia Bulldogs’ Football whom Mark Richt brought here and most importantly did NOT teach to obey the rules on and off the field. Why didn’t he ? Because he is a player’s coach, whom the players love who is like preacher’s families where the kids get away with any and everything, turning the other cheek and telling them they love them when they have heaped upon the family nothing but steamy shit all 2014. We became numb to it in 2014. If they kept up with it properly clearly Mark Richt would have won ANOTHER Fulmer Cup National Championship 2014, but they quit doing it any more. I never liked the way they counted it in the 1st place, keeping up with it only during the off-season; and disregarding how the damn team did on the field against lesser opponents. Yes, we beat 3 teams ranked for this 2014 season; are those wins maybe ever so slightly perhaps just maybe watered-down and obscured by the 3 horrid losses to less talented teams because of all this TURMOIL off the field ? If you do not know the answer to that question, you are NOT a Bulldogs’ Football fan, but a damn Mark Richt Apologist. How is that going for you, with the armies joining the bandwagon that they too are fed up with your bullshit, and his recruits he brings here to such fanfare who HE does not maintain discipline over ?
(13) Todd Gurley II – suspended 4 games selling autographs over 2 years, came back on cold windy day after not playing for 6 weeks’ time from October 4 to November 15 where he was left in the game to get a 4 TD lead with 5 minutes to go already with a 3 TD lead, career at Georgia ended with that decision by Mark Richt, when TGII was ALREADY injured earlier in the game and was compensating for that. UGA paid for insurance for TGII.
(14) Dream Team Nick Marshall kicked off team– Quarterback Auburn 2014
(15) Dream Team Chris Sanders kicked off team– Safety 2014 JUCO transfer to Baylor
(16) Demetre Baker – Linebacker – South Alabama Tailback
(17) Ty Flournoy-Smith – arrested for filing false report of a crime, then Josh-Harvey Clemons admitted to UGA police that Josh had been doing drugs in his room and Ty was in the room with Josh – so Ty was kicked-off the team and Josh was given a 1-game suspension for the opening game for this offense that cost Ty his scholarship here and got Ty kicked-off the team. The police report read that the dorm room wreaked of drugs that permeated the hallways. Had this gone in Colorado, Oregon Washington, and Alaska this incident would have been illegal because of their age. You support it and make light of it all you want. We lost 2 Starters as a result and YOU SAID it was ADDITION BY SUBTRACTION. Make up your 2-faced, minds ! It cannot be both, dimwits. The books he said were stolen in a sworn police report, were turned-in by him for cash later. Someone should keep up with an incident sheet on Mark Richt’s recruits on a daily basis for a year, if that were possible the way we cover-up and hide so much of it, and given the way we try to weasel our way out of it in so many other cases. A debate team could spend a lifetime eating-up and spitting-out the bullshit the supposed “fans” of this program attempt to shove down your throats when in actuality they are not fans of this program at all, but Mark Richt Apologists. They act as if 95 % of all of America is not Christian and that because he is, all is well no matter what. Excuse me ? He is a coach of college football program which is Top 10 All-Time in Wins. Ty Flournoy-Smith is Tight End Alabama 2014 playing in the play-offs and # 1 in the nation.
(18) Dream Team Isaiah Crowell kicked off team, Alabama State
(19) Dream Team Sanford Seay kicked off team – Wide Receiver – Louisiana Tech 2014
(20) Zach Mettenberger kicked off team – Quarterback – LSU. He has 8 TD Passes in his 6 Starts in the NFL with 60 % completion ratio and 1,412 yards passing. There is no damn way that he should have stayed on the damned bench against Okie State 2009. That’s bullshit that Joe Cox with chronic shoulder and with flu only played against Okie State. I said that pre-game, as I did that Brice Ramsey or Jacob Park should have played against South Carolina instead of Hutson Mason who gets to play 1 more football game in his lifetime. And, as I said about not Joe Tereshinski III but Matthew Stafford. We recruit all these top 10 QBs in the nation, but then we have this bullshit lying coach who tells you the obvious poor QB is the better QB. Not in their lifetimes.
(21) Hunter Atkinson – Tight End – just up and quit June 18, 2014
(22) Rico Johnson – medical disqualification
(23) Dream Team Christian LeMay – Quarterback – 4th String QB transferred-out, like his brother, neither accomplishing anything but bad news for us. This recruit I said repeatedly – having studied why he was not allowed to play his senior high school year, kicked-off and found guilty upon appeal by his preacher dad (who said kids make mistakes) – should have had his scholarship rescinded. Mark Richt never wanted this guy. Never in a million years. Mark Richt only wanted to be able to say, see ? See how I maintain offers after injury and after being kicked-off your high school team ? See ? I am a great guy. Come here play for me. I do it the right way, despite all the bad press and despite all the losses. Transferred-out to Jacksonville State January 2014.
(24) Alexander Ogletree – suspended multiple times for violation of team rules, including the 4-game suspension for REPEATED FAILED DRUG TEST mandatory by my alma mater school policy. Removed from roster supposedly for medical reasons. Part of a package deal in the 1st place to get his NFL twin brother, Alec. Mike Bobo said he had a bad attitude. Was he kicked-off or mutually agreed to go to medically ineligible ? You tell me ? The issue here, as with all these others, is that Zander obviously has an illegal drug issue reported widely and that he had a bad attitude, but that Mark Richt could not maintain discipline. It cost us games. It cost us tons of bad press. It caused turmoil.
(25) Shaquille Fluker – Safety – Transferred-out also to Jacksonville State for 2014 season after recruited here JUCO from East Mississippi Community College but never got a single snap here at UGA.
(26) Paris Bostick – Safety/Linebacker – Mutually Transferred-out 2014 to Iowa Western Community College
(27) Brent Benedict – Offensive Tackle 2014 at Virginia Tech
(28) Washaun Ealey – arrested leaving scene of accident, failed to show-up for disciplinary running, suspended multiple times by Mark Richt for violation of team rules, asked to transfer by Mark Richt by mutual agreement, transferred to Jacksonville State, arrested there on drug possession charges
(29) Montez Robinson – arrested battery/family violence, multiple incidents, in fact Mark Richt went to jail and talked with him after he had not only picked-up his girlfriend allegedly and thrown her repeatedly to the floor, but also had a previous violent incident with her also arrested for and a 3rd time with her where he beat-up allegedly not her this time, but her car, kicked-off finally after ALL this. Absolutely amazing. Lax program here ? No question of it. No wonder the players love the coach. It sure as Hell is not because he is only 68 % win percentage for the last entire 7 years here, despite once having a 81 % win percentage. There are still fans today, Mark Richt Apologists, who quote what Mark Richt did way back then when he had the 81 % win percentage, who tell me on my blog here that I am taking a small subset of his career here – the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era after 2007 – to talk about 68 % win percentage and running a lax ship. Stick it where the sun doesn’t shine !
(30) Caleb King – arrested multiple times including DUI here at UGA, flunked-out after all that lax program we run here where anything goes, kicked-off, went to NFL Vikings where he also was arrested and kicked-off
(31) Ken Malcome – Tailback 2014 Southern Illinois
(32) DeAndre Moose Johnson – Defensive Tackle from Newnan Northgate High, medical disqualification
(33) Derek Owens, Cornerback, Alabama State
(34) Darnell Salomon – arrested felony burglary on recruiting invite here July 23, 2014
(37) Dream Team Quintavious Harrow – Safety – Garden City Community College, flunked-out
(38) Gilbert Johnson – Wide Receiver Signed 2014, failed to Qualify
(39) Brendan Langley – Started at Free Safety against Missouri in 34-0 rout, played in 5 other games 2014, transferred-out, did not get a snap against Georgie tek, but did the game before, already not listed on roster
(40) J. J. Green – played in only 8 games this 2014 season, including one Start against the vols at cornerback, transfer – although he is still listed on the roster – obviously all this is hard for The University of Georgia to keep-up with as well. Transfer Georgie tek – obviously, they NEVER let us have 1 of their players who quits their team but for some really odd reason, we allow very talented players who started for us this season – J.J. Green – to transfer to Georgie tek. All we ever did with this talent was jerk him around here, and he is a crowd favorite who kept his nose clean and stayed out of trouble. Fine young man. Excellent football player, EVERY position, they jerked him around to and from. 2-way player. Probable NFL Draft Pick. Good guy. Put up with a lot of crap here, which the coaches pulled on HIM.
Mark Richt is 63-29 after 2007 through today, the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era, when all these incidents covered us under with bad press, continue to to the day, and have been a serious on-going issue for Mark Richt’s signed scholarship recruits, for which he is given such high praise for bringing-in here.
# 9 average Scout.com recruiting ranking 2001-2015 and 81 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014 both TOPS in SEC.
But, 63-29 on the field, with more off-the-field issues than a fan can keep up with. It’s overwhelming.
63-29 after 2007 puts Mark Richt # 20 in won/lost win percentage prior to today’s Championship Games, which he has not won in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006. After 2007, Mark Richt is only 5-16 vs teams making the final Top 25 polls for these most recent seasons on the road as visitor or neutral fields. This while all this continues to happen off the field, as well.
EGG-LAYING HEAD-SCRATCHING LOSSES :
In addition, after 2007, 8 games have been lost to teams who even with their win, were far less talented than us and not ranked. He is only 4-20 against teams ranked higher than him in the final polls these latest current 7 years.
This is way too many losses at 10-23 vs final Top 25 teams after 2007. 10 of 33 games won against teams ranked in either the AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll for the seasons 2008-2014 inclusive.
But, we really have to add-in the losses to not Top 25 teams he has already lost to in the 2nd Half of his Mark Richt era here, after 2007. You have to add-in these 8 losses because he is 10 wins of 33 games against Top 25 teams for the seasons 2008-2014, and losses to teams not in the Top 25 these seasons, too, is relevant to what his actual record is against Top 25 teams. The NCAA states that if you play a 1-AA FCS team, that that does not count – unless you lose to them. The same is true here, then – applying the same logic :
2nd half of the Mark Richt era after 2007 through the present in the order in which they occurred starting with the most recent :
8 Inexplicable losses 2nd half of Mark Richt era after 2007 :
LOST unranked both polls Florida
LOST unranked both polls South Carolina

in the order in which they occurred starting with most recent.
As a matter of fact, Mark Richt has had egg-laying head-scratching losses every single year.
We probably should address here the only 2 BCS Bowl Wins Mark Richt has. The 1st was after beating 5-Loss unranked Arkansas in The SEC Championship Game and then beating 5-Loss # 23 Ranked FSU in the BCS Bowl Sugar Bowl after 2002 season. You recall, of course, that he went 0-13 on 3rd Down Conversions against Florida 2002, when Florida was not even ranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25 even, even with Ron Zook’s win over Mark Richt 2002. 2002 season The SEC only had 1 other team, other than us even ranked in The Coaches’ Poll for 2002 season a 4-Loss Auburn team, other than Florida at # 24 another 4-Loss but should have been 5-Loss Florida 2002. The SEC was down the 2002 season, wasn’t it ? This is his wondrous SEC Championship. His only other SEC Championship was 2005, which was 10 years’ ago when he won that game. He lost to a hapless Florida team that season too, bragging to us all how great Joe Tereshinski III would be, when in fact he was the only QB who possibly could’ve lost to Florida 2005. LSU was # 5 for 2005, Alabama was # 8 for 2005 and Mark Richt was # 10. These, then, his only 2 “SEC Championships.”
You recall 2001 when Verron Haynes caught the wide-open TD pass in the cut-down vols checkerboard end zone that Mark Richt has bragged since that he “knocked the lid off The Bulldogs’ Football Program” but 2001 although beating # 4 vols, lost four (4) games for this Proud Top 10 All-Time Football Program in Wins. Mark Richt this same 2001 season, Mark Richt knocked the lid-off of our Top 10 All-Time Program in Wins, lost to Boston College who was unranked at game time and lost to Auburn who even with their win over Mark Richt 2001, still did not make either the AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll for the 2001 season. But, Mark Richt bragged he knocked the lid-off our program. You do not knock the lid-off Top 10 All-Time Football Program UGA losing 4 damn games including to 2 unranked teams.
This is what we suffer, have suffered, continue to suffer, and will suffer. And, make no mistake about it, Mark Richt told all the players complaining that we were not ready for Florida this season either, and told all his players he recruited here who said we took Florida lightly for this season’s game in Jacksonville, after the game, to shut-up saying we took them lightly. He attempts to control what we think. He told us he was way wrong to squib kick to 43-yard line up by 3 against a team who considers us their # 1 Rival at our house, where their coach now does not even have a losing record. He told us he was way wrong to not run Todd Gurley II against South Carolina 1st and goal handed to deer-in-the-headlights Hutson Mason.
He told us Joe Cox was better than NFL QB Zack Mettenberger, even with Joe Cox’s chronic shoulder making him miss every 4th practice all season, but also hiring a private charter to fly Joe Cox to Stillwater with the flu – a game Joe Cox obviously was not able to do well against and a team who even with their win over Mark Richt, did not make the AP Poll Top 25 for the 2009 season.
He told us Joe Tereshinski III was a better QB than NFL Quarterback Matthew Stafford 2006.
2014, he told us Hutson Mason whose last pass was intercepted in overtime against Georgie tek, losing the game for us, that Hutson Mason is a better QB than Jacob Park and Brice Ramsey. In fact, like Joe Cox and like Joe Tereshinski III, Hutson Mason is not better than either, and also not as good as Faton Bauta.
Mark Richt is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Mark Richt told the fan in Macon he “knows what the Hell I’m doing,” then why does he after every loss, tell us he made yet again, another glaring stupid decision ?
Which is it ?
He knows what he’s doing, or he is just simply wrong ?
He has gone out of his way to lie to us, and to control what we think.
The only other BCS Bowl Win for Mark Richt was 2007 against # 19 Hawai’i. Both 2007 and 2002 are in 1st half Mark Richt era. 2007, you no doubt recall, Mark Richt lost to a 6-6 South Carolina team that did not even play in a bowl game. And, in 2007, he was blown-out by a poor vols’ team by 3 touchdowns ! This is what he does. 14-35 vs. the vols 2007. DISNEYdawgs.com complained that we deserved to be in the then 2-team play-offs 2007, just as they whined this season, too, after losing to unranked 6-win South Carolina and losing to unranked 6-win Florida. No, we did not.
When he has a great season, or a poor season, he always has inexplicable losses to less-talented unranked teams. Teams he should never lose to.
This is not inconsistent or schizophrenic, but consistent through-out the entire Mark Richt era here, barring no season. This is the 1 constant – Mark Richt will ALWAYS lose to teams who he should NEVER LOSE to : teams without anywhere near the talent we have, and teams who are simply not ranked in the Top 25, even with their wins over Mark Richt. Several times Mark Richt has lost to teams who right afterwards, anyway, they fire their coach. Colorado did that. Florida did that. Those are 2 of just 10 now such losses to unranked in either the AP or Coaches’ Polls for the seasons that Mark Richt has lost to here. Teams like Florida 2002 are not included in that list of 10 because Florida made the Coaches’ Poll 2002 at # 24 – but, only because Ron Zook beat Mark Richt in Jacksonville. Florida is our # 1 Rival. Mark Richt is 5-9 against Florida in Jacksonville, and has complained for 14 years that he’s at a disadvantage in Jacksonville.
I hold Mark Richt accountable for this.
I hold the fans who band together to try to censor discussions of the topic, doubly responsible.
This, all, needs to be out in the open and addressed by The University of Georgia’s Jere Morehead and Greg McGarity.
We await the naming of the 3rd Tier Bowl we go to today.
This is the GOOD NEWS for The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Team that our off-season begins a few days after those allowed to play Georgie tek with the # 52 recruits, lost with our # 9 recruits ? This on top of losing to two 6-win teams in South Carolina and Florida who fired their coach the week after beating us. This is the good press ?
Fine manner to start-off our off-season, isn’t it ? And, this is supposed to be the good news, after this entire year of BAD PRESS for Mark Richt’s signed scholarship recruits, 73 of whom remain of the 119 he signed to play this season with a redshirt season. And, not one went early in the 2014 NFL Draft.
I am fed-up with it all.
Mark Richt was given great accolades for signing these 119 scholarship recruits, who with redshirt, would have played against Georgie tek. Instead, he has only 73 remaining for the bowl game by stark contrast, if Zach DeBell is allowed to play.
These incidents and resulting won/lost record are not an excuse for each other, but a double-whammy upon my alma mater.
“You know it’s a distraction. There’s probably more people here today because of that. I don’t know,” Richt said. “I don’t know. Maybe ya’ll all wanted to hear about football. But that’s about all I’m going to say about that. But if we want to talk about football some more, I’ll keep talking.”
This is not addition by subtraction. This is BAD PRESS, and that is all it is. ALL of these incidents are bad press. It is not bad press that I report it : It’s bad press that this has happened to us, causing us to lose to less-talented teams EVERY YEAR of the Mark Richt era, none more so than after 2007. It would, however, be bad press were we to bury our heads in the sand, and try to censor this discussion. You get that ? I doubt it ! All you want to do is to make excuses for Mark Richt. And, then praise him for the # 8 class he is going to sign in February. I do not like reporting this. I do not like looking it all up. I did not like it when they all happened, individually. And, I especially do not like losing to the likes of Georgie tek, South Carolina and Florida who did NOT recruit the talent we did. Did they ? We get LESS with MORE. It’s ALL we ever get, every season nowadays. Mark Richt was a fine coach when he 1st got here. You’ve made his job a cushy damn job : It’s your fault, and not mine.
And, continues to be. And, this is all tied-together that we only have only 73 signed scholarship recruits remaining of the 119 signed with redshirt who could’ve played Georgie tek last Saturday at our house where their coach does not have a losing record. I am witness. The NCAA allows us 85 signed scholarship recruits to compete with.
Strength of Schedule in Football shows, in fact, that we have played the # 42 Strength of Schedule 2014 to-date, according to the Official NCAA SoS and now we play Georgie tek # 46 SoS in 3 days’ time.
Looking at the schedule pre-season I figured South Carolina and Florida would be better than 6-win teams 2014. I figured Georgie tek’s SoS was worse than our own and it is.
Every year, there are other SoS listings updated through the latest games like the Official NCAA Toughest Schedules’ Rankings. NCAA always has their own Official NCAA SoS for you as well.
Other observations from the Official NCAA SoS is that Florida State has played the # 51 SoS 2014. Duh. For the whole entire season, only 53-47 is the combined won/lost record of all 2014 opponents for FSU. That includes Florida’s 6-win season and does not include the ACC CHUMPionship Game yet, but it will for the Play-Off Selection Committee prior to their decisions. They told us they will weigh this.
Florida’s SoS is # 48 and only a 6-win season. Horrible showing, right ?
Southern California’s SoS is only # 53 and they have another 4-Loss Season.
Southern California has the Most NFL Draft Picks in the Mark Richt Era 2001-2014 and Mark Richt is 2nd best nationally. He also is 2nd best nationally in average recruiting rankings 2001-2014 with his average # 9 while Georgie tek averages # 52.
It shows that Hutson Mason has 1825 Passing Yards on the season for 11 games, losing like last year to unranked Nebraska, losing this year to unranked 6-win South Carolina and losing to unranked 6-win Florida who fired their coach the week after he beat Mark Richt to drop Mark Richt’s record against our # 1 Rival to 5-9. Hard to feel good about yourself with a losing record that poor against your # 1 Rival.
Is there any question that Florida is a bigger Rival for us than Georgie tek is for us ?
Now, Georgie tek does consider us their # 1 Rival by a long wide margin with no other Rival at all. We’re the only team mentioned in their Fight Song, which is the Most Famous Fight song, nationally – maybe Internationally.
It promotes Poor Sportsmanship among the fan base at Georgie tek.
You have seen this all week on every blog.
Every blog where, like here, everyone’s posts are posted. We had one run on to this blog and brag they’d beat us 55-7.
He based this upon Florida’s rushing total against us 3 weeks’ ago.
He does not take into account they did well early only to have Hutson Mason again not stretch the field and failed to answer anything, sending the defense right back out there to bail his ass out to the tune of 31 unanswered points.
Unanswered points means that our offense failed to answer.
That’s what that means.
Last season, Hutson Mason did not lead the come-back against Georgie tek. In fact, he had another performance which could’ve lost us another game with him as our Starting Quarterback losing to yet another unranked team. It was Todd Gurley II who scored all the consecutive points against Georgie tek. They got off to a big lead and then Todd Gurley II put us on his back.
The score was nothing to 20 for Georgia tek with 35 seconds remaining in the 1st Half last year because Hutson Mason forgot to show-up. He does that. He is not like little Aaron Murray who called his own number 51 percent of the total plays. He is not like little Aaron Murray who had 10 percent of his plays result in interceptions, fumbles and sacks – all at the very worst moment, either. Hutson Mason suffers from trying to minimize those MISTAKES by not being like that, and a direct result, has only 1825 Passing Yards on the season.
Ray Goff and Jim Donnan all averaged more Passing than Hutson Mason has.
For the team, including the damn few plays either Brice Ramsey or Faton Bauta have been allowed to even play in the games Hutson Mason has started and played every minute of – not preparing a Quarterback for 2015 – since 2014 is shot to hell in a hand basket with the losses to 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina 2014 already. For the team now 2014, Mark Richt’s chosen quarterbacks & including Todd Gurley II’s longest pass play of the 2014 season for us, have thrown for a grand total of 2,205 yards only. This on top of his performance against Nebraska 2013 season, he also lost to an unranked team.
2,205 yards passing 2014 for UGA. Who would’ve thunk it ?
We could’ve taken advantage of our talent and especially at running back by throwing the football downfield, and stretching the field in so doing 2014. Never in the history of man, has there ever been a more wasted season on that front for us this season.
1825 yards passing is all Hutson Mason has to show for 2014.
Other than his
Todd Gurley II, you recall led the comeback against Georgie tek, falling behind 20 to nothing, scoring 4 Touchdowns against Georgie tek, including having the ball on every single play of BOTH OVERTIMES.
For the season, Hutson Mason has 38 rushes for 23 yards.
He just isn’t a college quarterback.
Mark Bradley says he is.
In fact, yesterday, Mark Bradley AJ-C said that Hutson Mason is A GREAT QUARTERBACK.
In the last 20 years, including Ray Goff and Jim Donnan years in addition to the Mark Richt era, this is the most God-Freaking-Awful Starting Quarterback other than Joe Tereshinski III in 2006 and 2009 with Joe Cox.
Both were, ALSO, 5th year Senior Starters for Mark Richt who like Hutson Mason NEVER GOT ANY snaps to prepare him, either.
Might as well have played Brice Ramsey all season on that point because Hutson Mason did not show me anything last year either, not against Georgie tek, not against Kentucky and not against Nebraska – just like Florida and South Carolina this year.
In fact, it has been a wasted year 2014 because Hutson Mason did not stretch the field all season to take advantage of all these running backs.
Never so tentative a starting quarterback is the damn history of the game.
I do give him credit for not making the myriad of mistakes that Aaron Murray did.
Unfortunately, he WASTED OUR YEAR, just as Joe Cox in 2009 and just as Joe Tereshinski III in 2006.
At least Joe Tereshinski III got YANKED in 2006, sat down, sent to the pines, lost his starting job. 2009, once Joe Cox even with the flu on top of his chronic throwing shoulder, was the only QB to play in the Okie State game who did not make the AP Poll Top 25 that season even with their win over Mark Richt (Joe Cox), 2009 was shot to hell.
Just like 2006.
2010, Mark Richt STARTED a redshirt freshman Quarterback.
2014, he did not, and has not and will not.
Brice Ramsey kind of shot himself in the foot last Saturday aiming the ball on a short crossing route, getting his 1st interception. It could not have been worse for Brice Ramsey, just when he was looking so comfortable back there and threw the deep passes with such aplomb.
It does highlight the difference between Hutson Mason and Aaron Murray and Brice Ramsey, now too.
All off-season, the seed has been planted now in the back of everyone’s mind fresh off seeing him from our seats on an easy throw, take something off the throw and just give the ball away. His interception and all the fumbles by folks Mark Richt had to expect fumbles from – I certainly did – and we ended-up against a 1-AA team with no plus average on the turnovers’ ratio against Charleston Southern University.
Too bad, really. Should have been + 3.
If we were, we’d be # 1 nationally in turnover ratio instead of # 2.
So, after it was 7 to nothing last year against Georgie tek, Hutson Mason
1st went 3 and out, and we punted, which they converted to 10 to nothing FG.
Then, on our next possession with the ball, Hutson Mason threw an Interception. Georgie tek promptly took it in for 17 to nothing. Then, to add fuel to the fire, Hutson Mason then after it was 17 to nothing, fails again to get the 1st down and we punted AGAIN to Georgie tek, who promptly again put up ANOTHER FIELD GOAL to extend their lead to 20 nothing.
I was pissed.
You were satisfied, you run in here and TRY to share with me.
Yeah, right you were.
Damn friqin’ right you were.
Then, Hutson Mason FAILED AGAIN to get the 1st Down and AGAIN we punted.
THIS is what Hutson Mason did against Georgie tek last year.
It should have been 35 to nothing with 38 seconds remaining in the 1st half.
THAT is what happened last year.
Then, Todd Gurley II willed his team to Victory, scoring 4 TD.
I remember thinking when it was 20 to nothing at their lousy as hell stadium, named for college drop-out Bobby Dodd (who dropped-out in college at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville), that we were fortunate our Defense held Georgie tek to only 20 of their should have been 35 to nothing lead.
Todd Gurley II damn sure certainly took advantage of it.
So, the writing was on the wall last year about this Hutson Mason Experiment of Mark Richt – just like his Joe Cox Experiment and his Joe Tereshinski II Experiments as 5th year senior starting Quarterbacks for Mark Richt with ZERO experience, un-played, unproven, and frankly proven to be exactly the opposite of that which Mark Richt tried to quell our concerns with of his glowing praise.
Mark Bradley wrote that bullshit piece so that Mark Richt would talk with him, after his earlier salvos of “it’s Mark Richt’s fault; it’s his team.”
I have no such requirement as I like you read the quotes of Mark Richt. I read every one. And, I watch the video clips and listen to him on the radio.
So, I know Mark Richt and Mike Bobo are BOTH big-time disappointed in Hutson Mason.
Still, he is the only one played. The only one all season. And, NO ONE PREPARED for 2015.
That, since 2014 has been OVER for a month now against Florida.
Bullshit 6-win Florida, who FIRED their coach the week AFTER beating Mark Richt to extend their # 1 Rival Advantage against him to 5-9 Mark Richt vs Florida.
Included all these wins by INFERIOR Florida teams.
Georgie tek is an INFERIOR TEAM.
How inferior ?
# 9 recruits vs # 52 recruits.
2007 we had a similar schedule strength as we have 2014, but our Quarterback managed to throw 10 interceptions and had 3 fumbles, unlike Hutson Mason, and also was sacked 15 times. This is what Hutson Mason does NOT do. Among other plays Hutson Mason does NOT do, such as throwing the ball downfield.
He prefers the 4-yard dinky dunk down pass.
It is ALL he looks for, staring the receiver down, and never going through his progressions despite the criticism ALL YEAR by Mark Richt and by Mike Bobo.
But, rue me for saying the same.
And, you. You too say the same.
2007, we lost to a 6-6 South Carolina who did not even go to a damn bowl game.
2007, we lost to a poor vols’ team, again neither with anywhere near the talent we have, and the vols had a BLOW-OUT win over us 14-35.
I cannot explain the 10 losses by Mark Richt to 10 teams who even with their win over Mark Richt that season, failed to make EITHER the AP or Coaches’ Polls.
That blow-outs like 3 weeks’ ago against Florida and in 2007 to the vols would also be common occurrences nowadays, is just hard to understand given the level of talent we have in the Mark Richt Era, which has not dropped-off at all.
We just take teams lightly, fumble, throw interceptions, get sacked, get blown-out against bitter damn rivals, and just fail to even show-up. We go 3 and out and wait for the suspect defenses we have, to bail our asses out. And, wait for our not so special, special teams to bail us out. Sad, how our offense is actually MARKED WITH THIS.
I do not understand it.
I certainly EXPECT it.
But, I don’t grasp how in the Hell we continue to go out there in big games and fail to convert on 3rd Downs and instead brag on the friqin’ Starting Quarterback.
In addition and in proving the 2nd best # 9 Average Recruiting Class of Mark Richt 2001-2014, Mark Richt ALSO has the 2nd best 81 NFL Draft Picks. This verifies the Average Recruiting Rankings. Southern California, who has the highest Average Recruiting Ranking 2001-2014, is # 1 in NFL Draft Picks too. 83 NFL Draft Picks, Southern California 2001-2014.
Georgie tek average recruiting ranking # 52 for 2001-2014 has only 29 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014.
There is no excuse for Georgie tek to be ahead of us 20 to nothing, and frankly it should have been 35 to nothing. We were fortunate, no thanks to Hutson damn Mason.
With all this talent.
No different from 2007 and no different from 2002 either.
2002 we got a BCS Bowl Win over a 5-Loss FSU # 24.
2007 we got a BCS Bowl Win over # 19 Hawai’i.
That’s IT for BCS Bowl Wins Mark Richt Era.
All this talent, and frankly NOTHING.
Not a damn freaking thing.
Remember 2002, since we covered 2007 now ?
2002, we LOST to a Florida team who did not even make the Coaches’ Poll Top 25 even after Ron Zook beat Mark Richt. Mark Richt’s Offense that year failed to convert a single 3rd Down Conversion. 0-13.
This is WHO we are. This is WHAT we do.
2014, it’s 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina.
It’s frankly so bad that Todd Gurley II said he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre.
In this week’s latest College Football Poll prior to the last week’s games of this college football regular season, we remain # 9 CFP, while we welcome # 16 Georgie tek, who is ranked WORSE than Auburn at # 15.
Who we blew out.
Forgot to take out Todd Gurley II, but BLEW them OUT.
There are so many teams ahead of prior to the last game of the regular season, that even a blow-out over # 1 Alabama were we to back-in to that game by Arkansas beating Missouri who has played the # 56 Strength of Schedule to Arkansas # 1 SoS 2014, that we cannot possibly be judged in the Top 4 teams in America with these continued on-going BAD LOSSES to not 1 but 2 teams who are 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina :
