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.
U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT BEST COLLEGES 2016 :
# 56 The University of Georgia U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges 2016
Greyson Lambert THREW THE BALL DIRECTLY to our opponents right in their breadbasket twice a game. We played CUPCAKES. He Greyson Lambert played CUPCAKES. His best win was over 2-6 in The SEC Auburn.
Even Kirby noted at halftime of this year’s G-Day Game that Greyson Lambert SHOULD HAVE BEEN PICKED-OFF a BUNCH OF TIMES and that we did NOT. That he Kirby insisted at halftime that we do intercept those. Kirby challenged OUR SECONDARY AT HALF to INTERCEPT THOSE PASSES from him. We did and now he is our Starter. No one is lacking for film on Greyson Lambert and THEY ALL SEE what WE ALL KNOW and that is that he CANNOT THROW the football.
For a QB who had 7 fumbles in 12 games as he and 29 rushes for minus 39 yards, that is REASON ENOUGH to give someone else a chance to BETTER US.
Greyson Lambert is not bettering us.
He is the polar opposite.
If you asked Kirby if he were the Defensive Coordinator and told him that Greyson Lambert gets us in the right play more often than Jacob Eason, Kirby would FIRE BACK Jacob Eason is by FAR the harder person to Defend against.
That it would make the defense honest against us.
That he WILL stack the box against Greyson Lambert and MAKE HIM BEAT US – especially if we can put up scores which I think we ALL KNOW North Carolina WILL DO.
I return you to the nincompoops who tell you to SUPPORT this bullshit.
Count me out.
I am NOT ON RECORD supporting this decision AT ALL. We’re going to fumble the ball.
I know it is wrong.
I know Kirby KNOWS this is wrong.
Jacob Eason MIGHT throw an interception ?
How many TD Passes might Jacob Eason or Greyson Lambert throw ?
How many interceptions have YOU SEEN Greyson Lambert THROW which the lousy defense did not catch directly into their numbers ?
Go ahead ?
How many ?
That the number YOU HAVE SEEN ?
2 a game ?
I tell you AGAIN that 4 QB 2015 True Freshmen were ranked in the Top 42 and Greyson Lambert # 79 best QB 2015.
Jacob Eason is better than ALL 4 of those True Freshmen Starters 2015 all 4 rated in the Top 42 best QB while Greyson Lambert # 37 ESPN QB 2011 only a 3-star recruit was ranked # 79 QB mostly because he GOT a lot worse as the season progressed after he beat 1-7 SEC South Carolina with record performance a 3-9 team on the season. Hell EVERYONE did well against South Carolina. Their coach quit the team mid-season because South Carolina SUCKED.
We are starting our WORST QB and benching our BEST QB because one MIGHT throw an interception when the OTHER ONE threw 20 which SHOULD HAVE BEEN intercepted.
As a defensive coordinator I would RELISH the opportunity to play Georgia WITH Greyson Lambert.
I would HATE to face Jacob Eason and Georgia instead.
Do what you want.
I will be there.
I am NOT ROOTING AGAINST Greyson Lambert. I will not boo when he enters the stadium. Quit with your bullshit lies about us who KNOW Greyson Lambert CAN NOT lead us to better than we’ve been against the top teams.
Mark Richt got fired because he COULD NOT BEAT the top teams any longer. Because he LOST IT after kick-off game 5 of 2008 as Mark Bradley said yesterday in the newspaper. (Are we to forget he said Kirby would have a HARD TIME beating Mark Richt’s record?)
I will be mildly surprised if he is NOT YANKED in the 1st Quarter just as soon as BOTH our offense and our defense realizes that North Carolina can score and we CAN’T with Greyson Lambert as well as we would with Jacob Eason.
What do I know ?
Well, I called for Joe Cox to be BENCHED in favor of Zach Mettenberger pre-game opening game 2009 at Okie State.
I called for us to recruit Deshaun Watson. I as well pointed-out HE was the BEST QB on that field that day when we beat them because THEIR COACH did NOT play him except a little bit where he SHINED for ALL TO SEE.
I called Mark Richt a dumbass for telling Cam Newton here in Atlanta that if he came here he would only be a Tight End.
I pointed-out that Mark Richt told Nick Marshall that he could ONLY play defensive back for HIM only to watch him take Auburn to the National Championship Game as QB.
We’ve made so many mistakes at QB choosing which one to start or even play for us after 2007 as the # 11 all-time winning football program FBS Division 1-A as to stagger the mind these last 8 years. 9 now. More of the same. I pointed them ALL OUT before KICK-OFF each time. What do I know ?
I called me I said that Jacob Park should have been playing not Hutson Mason and that he would be then a 4-year starter I said. Mark Richt would have started him vs Kentucky last year if he had not run him off too.
I said on Online Athens and EVERY OTHER BLOG in 2001 that DJ Shockley should NOT be redshirted. We wouldn’t have LOST 4 games 2001 if he had not been.
I said pre-game that Joe Tereshinski III is the ONLY QB Mark Richt could have possibly started against a lousy Florida 2005 that we lose to with. He did.
I said that Matthew Stafford was undermined in the press and with the team therefore not being named the starter in Game 7 even 2006 that we LOST to Vandie a 1-7 season team in The SEC only win over us because Mark Richt told us that BOTH Joe Tereshinski III and Joe Cox were BOTH better than Matthew Stafford. So he didn’t practice with the # 1 unit and was NOT the # 1 QB and WE LOST.
So what do I know ?
I am NOT a hater. I love Jacob Eason as our QB and as a fine SMART young man who WANTS to help us and we’re holding him back from that. Fine that you think you can write me off as a hater – that’s the same tired bullshit you tried to pin on me the last 8 years while you held us back BRAGGING on Mark Richt. Look the year after next he leaves to the NFL anyway. Do whatever the hell you want to do.
You can’t say I did NOT tell you as I did that Mark Richt had to be fired.
The same decision 2 other staffs came to as well ?
Excuse me ?
You mean the 3 staffs who will have REMOVED him as their Starting QB ? Is THAT what you mean ?
Well is it ?
Or you think I am wrong on this ?
Which is it supporting this bullshit yet again for a guy I helped not only get the guy here fired but personally went to bat for to be here to fix this shit against top teams.
Did you think we’re playing a CUPCAKE ?
He just stands there staring down his receivers and refusing to throw it thinking he would LOSE his starting QB job if he did. It will ALL come back to YOU just as soon as you see him AGAIN. He’s not changed his spots. He was not # 104 Passing Offense and # 119 on 3rd Down Conversions because he was BETTER than Jacob Eason.
A LOT WORSE.
And YOU damn well KNOW IT.
The Offensive Line did not play poorly last season; Greyson Lambert just STOOD THERE ALL DAY LONG.
If you do NOT believe that Kirby is being lambasted for his decision to YANK Greyson Lambert HIMSELF 3 weeks prior to today and LEAVE HIM benched for 2 entire weeks, only to name him the Starter, you’re only reading what you want to read and disregarding the rest as you did the last 8 years of Mark Richt with me in your God Damned Ear the whole freaking time day and night for 8 years.
Greyson Lambert is so good that HE DID NOT need those snaps ?
That this does NOTHING but put doubts into Greyson Lambert and the team about Greyson Lambert ?
Oh come on guys – don’t feed ME that shit.
He won 10 games last year ? There were 29 teams who won 10 games last year and we were NOT ranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25 because he Greyson Lambert had as his best win 2-6 in The SEC Auburn. There were 4 others like us last year when Greyson Lambert won 10 games who ALSO were not ranked in the Top 25 since there were 29 teams with 10-win seasons 2015.
That YOUR GOAL ?
It sure as shit ain’t mine to be # 29 in the AP Poll because 29 teams had 10-win seasons 2015.
Oh you thought that Kirby saying that Greyson Lambert is the STARTER at QB means that Kirby thinks Jacob Eason is the better QB ?
I get it now. Jacob Eason is my guy so I am starting Greyson Lambert. Sounds like 2002 when we had David Greene and DJ Shockley only problem with THAT is that Greyson Lambert is NOT David Greene. AND Jacob Eason is a LOT better than DJ Shockley even.
I am used to coaching staffs here making dumbass decisions on our Starting QB. It is what we do here. We have a long history of that these last 8 years and a matching # 45 vs top 15 game and # 42 vs top 25 season to go right along with it as direct results therefrom.
THIS just MORE of the same. It therefore does not surprise me one damn iota that you support THIS too as you did being # 45 vs top 15 and # 42 vs top 25 for the last 8 years bragging on THAT as the best ever and 10-win season.
You don’t know jack shit about this.
Leave it to those of us who do.
That would be I and NOT you.
I see this as a FAILURE by Kirby and Jim Chaney to prepare Jacob Eason to Start instead the Rivals.com # 22 QB in 2011 instead a 3-Star QB. They have FAILED to prepare Jacob Eason who is an Academic All-America and made a 100 on the Play Book but only brought him in at the 10:36 mark before Half in the G-Day Game reluctantly and NEVER gave him ANY SNAPS with the # 1 unit until VERY LATE in the Fall Practice and NONE in the Spring at ALL when they had EVERY REASON to believe that Greyson Lambert is NOT the QB to lead this program where we NEED TO BE.
Oh you thought Greyson Lambert was highly-rated by the Recruiting Services ? Uh no. We did NOT recruit any quarterbacks here rated as badly as Greyson Lambert only a 3-Star recruit 2011 by Rivals.com and the # 22 best QB 2011. Here is that URL Link for you :
STOOD there in the pocket ALL DAY LONG all year long
stares down his receivers
“best win” over 2-6 in The SEC Auburn
won 10 games ? 29 teams 2015 won 10 games. # 29 is your goal
Finished us UNRANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25
good game vs vols ? He was up by 3 TD lead with 3 minutes go before half.
He gave up 4 UNANSWERED TD because they STACKED box make him beat them.
Mark Richt benched his ass against FL our # 1 rival
# 37 ESPN QB only a 3-star recruit
FAILURE Kirby AND Jim Chaney to PREPARE Jacob Eason
Only reluctantly brought him in Spring G-Day Game with 10:36 before half
GAVE him NO SNAPS with the # 1 unit ALL SPRING PRACTICE
Wasted Jacob Eason’s Spring TOTALLY yet graduated with HONORS and came here early and made all A in classes.
This is bullshit that Greyson Lambert IS THE ONE WHO IS SMART.
He is NOTHING but a piss-ant LOSER who categorically REFUSES to even try to throw the ball downfield in FEAR he might throw an Interception and cost him his Starting Job.
He has NO mobility
His arm is WEAK
He can’t hit the out routes to the flats – floating them
He knows he can’t throw the ball deep well
So he STANDS there all day and LOOKS
He beat South Carolina in record performance ? he GOT a lot worse as the season progressed after he beat 1-7 SEC South Carolina with record performance a 3-9 team on the season.
Greyson Lambert got Mark Richt FIRED.
He gets us in the Right Play ? What the hell does he do in the “Right Play” to help us win ? Not a God Damn NOTHING does he do. Can’t run, can’t pass worse refuses to try to, and can’t even hand-off with 7 fumbles. I would rather be in the WRONG PLAY than that.
We Start Greyson Lambert and against a good defense which North Carolina is NOT we will FALL BEHIND. What ? Then say oh I friq’d it up ? I should have Started Jacob Eason. Yank Greyson Lambert and ask Jacob Eason to go out there and bail your ass out ? After you have SHOT the CONFIDENCE of Jacob Eason NOW ALREADY. After the ENTIRE TEAM is told and all the press that the # 37 QB in 2011 only a 3-star QB is BETTER than Jacob Eason.
I would have expected this from Mark Richt.
I FIRED his ass for it – didn’t I ?
Larry Fedora is an Offensive Coordinator of some notability in Conference USA now head coach calling the plays and Gene Chizik is his Defensive Coordinator. If you think they will NOT stack the box and make Greyson Lambert beat them, then TRUST ME they will.
We’re playing right into their hands. We are setting ourselves up for even more against Ole Miss Florida and vols.
This will NEVER get us where we want to be as a program starting the # 37 QB 2011 according to ESPN a 3-Star QB. That is what a Conference USA team gets as their starter. NOT UGA.
Only 12 TD Passes in 12 games all against CUPCAKES. Stack box make him beat them or ADMIT ERROR and bring-in Jacob Eason and ask him to bail-out the dumbass brain trust decision to start Greyson Lambert. Where the HELL is Mike Caven Special Assistant to Kirby ?
QB Guru Mike Cavan Special Assistant to Kirby Kirby said when he hired Mike Cavan THE Most Celebrated in our HISTORY.
Former University of Georgia Quarterback Mike Cavan was head coach for 16 years at Valdosta State University, SMU and East Tennessee State. He signed Herschel Walker here at UGA for us himself. Now we have Jacob Eason and I swear we tell HIM that we ain’t starting no God Damn Freshmen – just like we told Herschel Walker 1980. I bet Mike Cavan told Vince Dooley he better get Herschel Walker in the God Damn Game to save his ass behind as we were to vols – looking like shit until we did.
Mike Cavan led us to an undefeated regular season ranked the # 1 team in the nation in his ONLY sophomore season 1968. He would’ve done the SAME as a God Damn Freshman but Vince Dooley NEVER started freshmen and wasn’t allowed to in 1967. Those days are PAST.
6 Football National Championships for The Georgia Bulldogs URL Links proving THIS :
6 Georgia Bulldogs’ Football National Championships :
As you can see Mike Cavan lead UGA to National Championship 1968.
These are the VERY SAME POLLS who ranked Georgie tek yellowjackets # 1 six times national champions in football TOO.
Robert E. Lee High School legendary head coach Jim Cavan is his Dad.
I can ASSURE you Mike Cavan had NOTHING to do with this BULLSHIT of NO SNAPS with the # 1 unit all Spring for Jacob Eason to prepare him NOT, and nothing to-do with sitting down Greyson Lambert with 3 weeks before TODAY only to name him the Starter with only a few days before today. Nick Saban wouldn’t handle this this way. Sonny Smart would NEVER have handled this this way either. Jim Cavan 140-84-14 would roll over in his grave on Jim Cavan Memorial Parkway. And Mike Cavan had NOTHING to do with ANY of this bullshit either.
Talk about a God Damn QB Controversy – nothing Kirby has done is consistent with preparing Jacob Eason. There was NO QB battle for Starting Job.
Where the hell is Mike Cavan in all THIS SORDID MESS handling and preparing Jacob Eason to take this program where we NEED to be NOT where we in fact are for our last entire 8 years here losing to top teams at the rate of # 42 and # 45 vs top 25 and top 15 teams ?
Kirby Smart’s first Starting Quarterback will ALWAYS have been Greyson Lambert. This is NOT good for a guy whom Mark Richt gave his first and ONLY EVER offensive coach job in 2005 and shows-up here with ONLY THAT as his claim on offense. That and THIS.
Greyson Lambert only 12 TD passes all season in a 13-game season. A season in which we played only 3 teams who were ranked for the 2015 season. He gave-up 5 unanswered TD by Alabama. Then he gave-up 4 unanswered TD to vols with a 3 TD lead with 3 minutes to go in the half. Then EVEN Mark Richt benched his ass vs the ONLY other ranked team we would play all season and left him on the bench despite 4 interceptions and no running plays for a guy I had tagged as needing to be moved to running back the year before.
He was # 119 on 3rd Down Conversions.
He was # 104 Passing Offense.
He beat ABSOLUTELY no one.
He led the team with his 7 God Damn Fumbles.
He can not move or run the ball with 29 carries for minus 39 yards with 7 fumbles.
He is NOT a QB.
He has NEVER been a QB.
He will NEVER be a QB.
He isn’t going to even be invited to the NFL Combines even.
And just as in 2006 when Mark Richt shot the confidence and undermined Matthew Stafford REFUSING even in Game 7 of 2006 to start Matthew Stafford and LOST to 1-7 in The SEC Vandie whose lone win was THIS GAME Matthew Stafford did NOT start, Kirby not so Smart and not so experienced at OFFENSE, chooses HIM as his ONLY EVER FIRST STARTING QB his entire LIFETIME.
The Georgia Bulldogs will LOSE GAMES – multiple gameS- two MORE LOSSES with Greyson Lambert than WITHOUT. Greyson Lambert’s BEST WIN EVER ANYWHERE was over 2-6 in The SEC Auburn.
Just because I know what a God Damn Freaking QB looks like, and what one doesn’t, doesn’t mean that it is hurting our recruiting for me to say the TRUTH of just how God Damn Poorly Kirby has handled all this shit about his freaking Starting QB. Trust ME : THEY ALL KNOW !
The bottom line is that THIS GUY with THIS BACKGROUND only this HISTORY ONLY EVER this clear and undeniably HALTING QB will ALWAYS have been the answer to the TRIVIA QUESTION :
If Kirby is that smart then who in the hell was HIS PICK as the Starting QB for HIM his inaugural such decision his first year as head coach ?
He is that good that By God Above Kirby Smart could 3 weeks prior to Kick-Off tomorrow for 2 ENTIRE WEEKS demote to 2nd team and NOT give snaps to as our Starting QB.
I said THEN. I continue to say NOW. No Matter What Choice he MADE after that, he’d be WRONG. As I did about Mark Richt prior to Florida last year whom we lost to as a result.
Direct result of DESPERATE and NOT EVEN knowing who OUR STARTING QB IS.
There is NO DEFENSE of Kirby on this. No EXCUSES will hold water. Again.
Kirby is here for games like North Carolina # 20 and us # 18.
If you think that we can let them stack the box against us which they will do until Greyson Lambert is YANKED, then you are JUST WRONG. They are going to score on Kirby’s defense. Get over it.
If you think that Greyson Lambert will change his spots, you don’t understand psychology 101. We are whom it is we are by age 7 and only an SEE significant emotional event will EVER have ANY hope of changing those spots. He is whom it is he is. A HALTING QB.
Why did you think that Kirby DEMOTED him to NOT # 1 QB for 2 weeks with 3 weeks all there was remaining before tomorrow’s kick-off ? Because Greyson Lambert is so good and team so much confidence in him like all our fans that he didn’t even need to get those snaps with the # 1 unit as the # 1 QB ?
You’re dumb as shit.
We’d be BETTER off redshirting Jacob Eason and then next year try if we’re capable to GET BEHIND our Starting QB and instill some CONFIDENCE in him and in our TEAM about him. This waffling disagreeing with himself is NOT the result of his offensive coordinator that that is where this blame lies. This is on Kirby. The way Kirby has handled this. Kirby has made MULTIPLE MISTAKES on this entirely. Then after we redshirt Jacob Eason this year then we can have the team and coaches behind him NEXT YEAR. And then the year after next he can go be the # 12 pick in the NFL Draft after we saw him only 2 years like Knowshon Moreno.
No matter what happens on the field, this season WILL ALWAYS BE known for this.
And I will COME BACK and tell you I TOLD YOU SO afterwards.
As only I ever can. You think it’s wrong for me to point-out where we need to improve.
You think you’re a better fan of us than I because I do and you don’t. Yeah you do and no you’re not.
I do NOT trust therefore Kirby’s “decisions” in ANY of this for all these reasons and mostly because he does NOT trust himself in ANY of it either.
His recruits will WONDER about Kirby on this. Jake Fromm for example.
What difference does it make if he is in the right play if he can’t DO ANYTHING in that RIGHT PLAY ?
THIS is the guy who is THAT GOOD that he doesn’t even NEED to be out there getting the # 1 reps with the # 1 unit for 2 entire weeks of the last 3 just prior to Kick-Off ?
And shooting the confidence of Jacob Eason AND Greyson Lambert JUST LIKE LAST YEAR and just like 2006 for us.
And shooting the confidence of the entire TEAM and ALL KIRBY’S COACHES in BOTH Greyson Lambert AND Jacob Eason most especially.
So Jacob Eason had to take to Twitter to TELL US the news. He OWED THAT TO US.
We who LOUDLY PROCLAIMED he get 3 years’ worth of starts and then leave # 1 NFL Draft Pick – our 5th such. I know what one of those looks like.
I am not going to be the Starter. Greyson Lambert is.
So Kirby had to KNOCK-OFF all this BULLSHIT about it ALL and announce the next day himself that which Jacob Eason told us immediately when THEN THEREAFTER told by Kirby the day AFTER when Jacob Eason told us all THE DAY BEFORE.
Greyson Lambert is going to be our starter.
Oh really ?
He will then always have been your 1st starter at QB ever yet with 3 weeks to go you BENCHED HIM for 2 entire weeks.
You think that is SMART ?
You just don’t have ANY experience on the offensive side of the ball and you and I and the world KNOW IT NOW.
And you told us you don’t on special teams either.
I did not feel that Mark Richt was involved in the decisions at FSU and I don’t think you were at Alabama now.
I did NOT care for you coming here January 12.
I felt you completely WASTED all spring for Jacob Eason.
I am ABSOLUTELY certain you now have dealt with this ALL the wrong way.
I don’t think you know what you’re doing on offense, despite what you said about NOT KNOWING JACK shit about special teams.
Do what you want Kirby.
Make up your mind.
Make one choice.
Disagree with yourself and make the other completely opposite choice from your choice contradicting yourself on offense and shooting in the foot BOTH quarterbacks both with their OWN CONFIDENCE and the TEAM in them.
Make waffling decisions on offense.
I mean QB is ONLY the MOST IMPORTANT position for ANY COLLEGE football team EVER.
See how long THAT takes for the press to get on your ass about ?
He makes this choice after having said that THE REASON WAS that Greyson Lambert who CAN NOT THROW THE BALL and WORSE REFUSES TO makes the RIGHT DECISION on the plays from the DEFENSIVE STAND-POINT more often.
Excuse me. He can’t throw the God Damn Ball nor run it, and can not even hand the God Damn Ball-Off with 7 fumbles to lead the team. He is ONLY a HALTING QB who never has beat anyone and never will for a guy NOW who was brought here because his predecessor was # 45 against time of game top 15 teams AP or Coaches’ and # 42 against Top 25 teams AP or Coaches’ for the season BOTH after 2007.
And this his freaking choice.
That’s what Kirby said.
Maybe you missed it ?
Kirby said that Greyson Lambert makes the RIGHT DECISION on plays more often.
To which I replied : What difference does THAT make if he NEVER throws the ball downfield and can’t run or even hand the ball off with 7 fumbles and NO WIN over ANYBODY ?
You KNOW ?
The # 45 record vs top 15 time of game for 8 years fired you hired to fix.
The # 42 record vs top 25 for the season for 8 years fired you hired to fix.
It is NOT what play he gets us into, it is CAN HE HIMSELF DO ANYTHING on the God Damn RIGHT PLAY CALL to help us win ?
NEVER EVER NEVER.
And for THIS Kirby will have FOREVER always said as Mark Richt in 2006 that Greyson Lambert is the BETTER QB than Jacob Eason.
From the God Damn Frying Pan into the God Damn piss-ant fire.
Piss-ant Greyson damn Lambert.
And no I do NOT expect him to do well. How the hell could I ?
Would I love for him to ? Excuse me : He is NOT going to be. What part of that do you have some unforeseen handicap to not be able to see ?
Where the HELL were you all last season ?
What YOU see is not what you Albert Einstein expect ?
That is about as gently as I can put this.
Your head up your ass ?
One supposedly an Offensive Coordinator who warmed the bench as a QB.
The OTHER a guy who NEVER coached one down of offense except when the OTHER guy made him running backs’ coach here for a year in 2005.
Jesus Friqin’ God Damn Christ.
Is Kirby wrong on his Starting Quarterback AND how he’s entirely handled this OFFENSIVE question as head coach with no offensive experience ? Has he done anything correctly on ANY of this ? Well, has he ?
Are we really going to beat the top 15 teams better than # 45 for 8 years with this starting QB?
Are we really going to beat the top 25 teams better than # 42 for 8 years with this starting QB?
I’ll answer THAT for YOU since YOU want to support this “decision” waffling as it is to the detriment of 2016-2017 season and setting himself up for NOTHING BUT second-guessing him on THIS entire SORDID matter and every single bit of how he has handled it since he got here January 12.
Kirby does NOT have win 2016-2017 season ?
It’s his God Damn HONEYMOON ?
We can have YET ANOTHER throw-away season after 8 years of # 42 vs top 15 and # 45 vs top 25 ?
Oh we can LOSE ALL THOSE and Kirby is just fine as Mark Richt was for 8 years # 42 vs top 15 and # 45 vs top 25 ?
No pressure at all to fix any of this shit ?
You’re holding our program back. All you’ve ever done is hold our program back. This needs to be criticized as incorrectly handled completely entirely.
I have every intention of CONTINUING to call it like it is, whether you like it or NOT. I could give a shit what you think about me criticizing Kirby on this because he has NOT HANDLED this correctly and moreover you KNOW IT.
You probably don’t want me to say this either.
If not I, who ?
Predictions : I predict that Kirby has handled this ENTIRE Starting QB bullshit situation absolutely incorrectly in total all of it.
Nick Saban most certainly would not have handled any of this like Kirby has and continues to.
And, I will go one further : THIS is not like Kirby. I have known Kirby and followed him for 23 years. This is NOT like him. This is OUT-OF-CHARACTER.
Kirby Smart Head Coach UGA : was Nick Saban’s LSU Defensive Backs’ Coach when Nick recognized Kirby’s greatness then Nick took Kirby with him to Miami Dolphins NFL to coach Nick’s Safeties then Nick took Kirby with him to Alabama as Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Backs’ Coach then Kirby in 2008 eight years ago made Kirby Defensive Coordinator where in these last 8 years of nothingness here Kirby called every defensive play as he did at UGA as a player All-SEC 1st Team all Kirby did was win the NC half the time while our coach was unranked in the AP Poll half the time these same last 8 years. Now Kirby has GUTTED Nick Saban’s Alabama and it is SHOWING listening to Nick Saban as I have been. His Dad was head football coach high school.
Mel Tucker Defensive Coordinator UGA : was Nick Saban’s graduate assistant at Michigan State when Nick Saban recognized Mel’s greatness and Kirby brought Mel with him from Alabama where Nick had Mel as Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Secondary Coach.
Glenn Schumann Inside Linebackers Coach UGA : was Nick Saban’s Director of Player Development at Alabama and Kirby’s right-hand man as Glenn Schumann was there at Alabama under Nick for 8 years and Glenn Schumann played Safety Defensive Back for Alabama. He has his degree from Alabama. Also has a Master’s Degree in Sports Management. His Dad was DC college football for several decades and his granddad was a football coach at FSU.
James Coley Wide Receivers’ Coach UGA : Nick Saban recognized James Coley and hired him as his graduate assistant at LSU where James Coley won the NC with Nick Saban at LSU 2003 then Nick took James Coley with him to NFL Miami Dolphins where James Coley was Offensive Assistant Coach NFL Miami Dolphins for Nick Saban when Kirby was Nick’s Safeties’ Coach. James Coley is the former Offensive Coordinator at both FSU and at Miami of Florida.
Dell McGee Running Backs’ Coach UGA : Nick Saban has been recruiting Carver-Columbus players in a big way. Dell McGee is generally considered one of the very best high school football head coaches in the world for some time now. When Dell McGee told Mark Richt that Mark Richt could no longer recruit Carver-Columbus stars and he has a ton of them at Carver-Columbus Nick Saban moved-in recruiting his stars. It was the opening Nick was looking for. Dell McGee is an Auburn grad where he was a Starter for several years. Last season Dell McGee was Head Coach at Georgia Southern University leading GSU to their 1st Bowl Win EVER and before that Dell McGee was on the Auburn Coaching Staff when Auburn beat Nick Saban for Auburn to play in the NC game not Nick Saban. Dell McGee made THE interception against Alabama in 1993 which beat Alabama when he played at Auburn who was undefeated in 1993. Undefeated as Division 1 College Football Coach. Georgia Southern SHOULD have made Dell McGee their head coach OBVIOUSLY. They whiffed on that and since Kirby who was Mr Everything in Recruiting for Nick Saban knew Dell McGee extremely well from recruiting all his stars at Carver-Columbus where Dell McGee won the State Championship in Football for the state of Georgia. Drafted 5th Round NFL Dell McGee coached Offense at Auburn. 89-19 Record Head Coach High School and College Head Coach Record is a LOT better record than Mark Richt’s at .8241 winning percentage which has GONE UP not down like Mark Richt’s over the last 8 years. Pay Dye recruited Dell McGee to Auburn. Jarvis Jones played for Dell McGee at Carver-Columbus. He not only won his bowl game he beat the ever-living shit out of them 58-27 scoring 35 unanswered points. Dell McGee is very handsome man who is all business. Imagine Dell McGee told Mark Richt to not recruit his Carver-Columbus stars. Georgia Southern in their game prior to Dell McGee being head coach lost to Georgia State University in Statesboro 7-35. This is the same Georgia Southern who Mark Richt said was so great the game before that. Yeah uh huh with Dell McGee head coach they certainly were. But not the coach who lost to Mark Richt 17-23 in overtime which sealed the fate of Mark Richt here. Alabama’s Nick Saban has recruited players from Carver-Columbus such as Mekhi Brown. Nick Saban thought he was getting Jawon Pass. Nick Saban also got DeQuan Menzie from Carver-Columbus Consensus All-America who beat LSU in the 2012 NC game and then was 5th Round NFL Draft Pick. Dell McGee brought along with him Olten Downs. Nick Saban and Dell McGee are best of friends on 1st name basis.
Travares Tillman Graduate Assistant – Defense UGA : played for Nick Saban and Kirby as Safety at NFL Miami Dolphins
Kevin Sherrer is Kirby’s Outside Linebackers’ Coach at UGA : Nick Saban recognized Kevin Sherrer and hired him at Alabama where he worked for Nick Saban for 3 years. Nick Saban and Kirby. Kevin Sherrer won the NC 2011 and 2012 with Nick and Kirby and had Aaron Murray all covered-up when Mark Richt insisted 3 times in front of me to not spike it. Every receiver was covered-up and the defensive line was all over Aaron Murray as it was OBVIOUS Academic All-America Aaron Murray was correct and Mark Richt incorrect to spike it to have 3 such shots. Kevin Sherrer was Defensive Coordinator at Hoover Alabama and won the state championship 6-A twice. Kevin Sherrer played Tight End at Alabama as a player. Also Kevin Sherrer is a graduate of Alabama and has his Master’s Degree from Alabama. Kevin Sherrer was Kirby’s second hire after Glenn Schumann as Outside Linebackers’ Coach. Kevin Sherrer has been a Defensive Coach his entire career as Kirby except for Mark Richt hiring Kirby as Running Backs’ Coach 2005 the dumbass. Imagine that and now Mark Richt is fired and Kirby made head coach because Mark Richt lost it after 2007 when Kirby PROVED HIMSELF as a great coach and one who makes GREAT HIRES and out-recruits Mark Richt and is an Academic All-America while Mark Richt is a dumbass who warmed the bench not 1st Team All-SEC like Kirby.
Ed Ellis Senior Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning UGAformer Alabama grad.
Aaron Feld Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach UGAwho in 2014 was on the strength and conditioning staff at Alabama for Nick Saban.
Blaine Miller Quality Control Assistant UGA : was Nick Saban’s Player Personnel Assistant at Alabama. During his time in Tuscaloosa assisted with on-campus recruiting efforts last year.
Hannah Brinks Football Graphic Design Coordinator UGA : Hannah Brinks is a consummate professional who is doing all this great art work for Kirby and our tickets and our WebPages you are seeing now here. When LSU began having their budget cuts because they are broke Kirby jumped in and instantly hired Hannah Brinks on his football staff here to do our graphics. UGA does not credit the artists with their name on the works and although I recognize Hannah Brinks’ style we have no WebPages yet crediting her for her outstanding works here for Kirby and UGA. Another great Kirby hire with Alabama Connections. Hannah Brinks is an HONORED Alabama graduate and one of Alabama’s all-time greatest student-athletes. Hannah Brinks holds many Alabama School Records in Swimming and in her combination of Academics’ Dean Lists Honor Rolls and Athletics prowess. Everyone at the University of Alabama knows EXACTLY who Hannah Brinks is. Kirby certainly DID and jumped at the chance to get her on Kirby’s football staff. Look at our graphics and what she has done since she took over. Just look. I do daily. I love her work and would recognize it in an instant. Hannah Brinks is one of The SEC’s Most Celebrated Student-Athletes of All-Time. Competed in the U.S. Olympic Trials 2008. Alabama graduate and competed for Alabama and The SEC Scholar All-America.
Nick and Kirby are inseparable. They are joined at the hip. Who will Alabama turn to and offer $ 7 million dollars to coach Alabama when Nick Saban gives it up with all these devastating losses to Georgia of all these Nick Saban Connections ? You tried for 8 mediocre years of UGA football here to tell me Mark Richt would be FSU’s hire. I said no. I tell you NOW that Kirby is # 1 on Alabama’s list today to replace Nick Saban AND that Nick Saban is CLEARLY hurting over all this right here right now today in this blog post of his LOSSES to Kirby. If you think that Kirby did not call every down on defense these same last 8 years as he did here as a player at the line of scrimmage 1st Team All-SEC here at UGA then you are showing that you don’t know what you are talking about AGAIN. And I am showing that I do know what I am talking about and ALWAYS have by stark direct contrast.
Since winning his 4th national championship for Nick Saban as his Defensive Coordinator these last 8 years of rotten football here at UGA half the time NC there while half the time Mark Richt did not make the AP Poll Top 25 even, Kirby finally got here January 12. Since January 12 Kirby has SIGNED these players HERE at UGA who previously were NOT Mark Richt commitments whom Alabama thought they had and who were going to play for Nick Saban and now are NOT :
9 on 2016 roster not counting walk-on QB :
Brian Herriensuperstar Running Back Nick Saban was hot and heavy after future NFL
David Marshallsuperstar Defensive Tackle Nick Saban was sure he had future NFL
Michail Cartersuperstar Defensive Tackle Nick Saban was sure he had future NFL
Tyler SimmonsWide Receiver who Nick Saban was also recruiting heavily
Mecole Hardman Jr. superstar defensive back wide receiver special teams Nick Saban sure he had NFL
Solomon Kindley6′ 5″ 345 lbs. OL Alabama and Nick Saban wanted at Alabama
Isaac Nauta# 1 Tight End United States of America Nick Saban and Alabama dearly wanted NFL
Riley RidleyNick Saban and Alabama wanted his brother Heisman Trophy candidate WR now
This whom Kirby has ALREADY SIGNED and has playing for Kirby now instead.
Mo Smith 1st String Defensive Back 2016-2017 senior season at Alabama Transfer
IN ADDITION KIRBY Commitments 2017 :
12 on 2017 commitment list :
Toneil Carter one of top RB nation 2017 Nick Saban wanted dearly NFL
Andrew Thomas OT Nick Saban wanted badly future hopeful NFL
Robert Beal Defensive End Nick Saban wanted badly NFL
Latavious Brini Defensive Back Nick Saban wanted
Trey Blount Wide Receiver Nick Saban wanted badly NFL
Netori Johnson 6′ 4″ 325 lbs. OT Nick Saban wanted badly NFL
William Poole III Cornerback Nick Saban dearly wanted NFL
Jake Fromm Pro-Style Quarterback Nick Saban was absolutely certain he had NFL
Richard LeCounte Safety Nick Saban dearly hoped to get too NFL
If ANYONE thinks that Kirby has not IMPROVED Georgia Bulldogs and HURT Alabama and Nick Saban dearly they would be absolute fools and could not possibly believe it themselves when they tried to say it. Sure Alabama still has a great recruiting class 2016 without these Kirby STOLE from Alabama at the last moment here for Georgia Bulldogs but they don’t have THESE GUYS and We DO !
Frankly Kirby appears to be making a huge impact on both Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide since coming here January 12.
Kirby leaving Alabama and coming to Georgia has hurt Alabama and helped Georgia.
If you are asking little ole me who I believe well I do NOT believe anyone in Brazil trying to cover all this up about how poorly safe everyone is in Brazil and they are doing nothing but making these matters of all these real robberies during the Olympics worse for themselves by this.
I am sure Brazil feels vindicated in all this but the fact remains my only interest is Gunnar Bentz and they have done him wrongly in this from the get-go.
This blog has followed this from the beginning.
Gunnar Bentz has NEVER been interviewed by the Police and that includes RIGHT NOW at 2:00 a.m. Atlanta time when he should have been home safely.
All 4 are cooperating and will answer their questions today August 18 2016. When it’s over they were robbed 2 of the 4 say. They say the 4 went to specific gas station and have video of them breaking down the bathroom door with their own security guard there who did pull his gun and point it directly in Taxi at them when drunk they could not get in. They paid a manager monies of $ 33 Brazilian money and $ 20 U.S. for the damage to the door and one of them peed on the wall in that hallway when the manager got a customer to interpret. Supposedly Gunnar Bentz told Police this too. Who of the 4 broke the door in the video we have no information other than it is reported to have been Lochte nor who it was who committed the public urination which may not be a crime in Brazil since they have 60% of their raw human sewage untreated anyway according to Brazil itself.
While all of this was going on another Olympic Athlete from Great Britain was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night 8-17-2016.
Note there is an outstanding report that Police with visible gun in holster there robbed another victim too of $ 800 Jason Lee, a jujitsu champion from New Zealand.
Who cares about what that University of Florida swimmer back in the U.S. said if you are Gunnar Bentz ? Your charge is that the 2 who did report the robbery at gunpoint by Badge brandishing Gun brandishing Police Uniform brandishing THUGS made a FALSE REPORT OF CRIME. That is what you are trying to prove. Gunnar Bentz you did not even try to interview until Wednesday night late.
You have made the STATEMENTS that they were NOT ROBBED by your press in Brazil. I read it. That is your point. That is what you have everyone saying. That there was NO ROBBERY. If you intended to say that you want a public apology that it was NOT Rio de Janeiro Police – no one ever said that it was and Gunnar Bentz said nothing either way. You also made the STATEMENT that “ALL 4 LIED.”
All 4 lied ?
You told the judge all 4 lied.
She had Gunnar Bentz detained and his U.S. Passport confiscated because YOU told the judge that all 4 lied.
That’s a God Damn LIE.
I don’t care who it was who robbed them or if they were not robbed as far as Gunnar Bentz goes. He did not make a false police report.
They have no idea with whom they are making these charges about to pretend they can make THIS ONE INCIDENT GO AWAY. But it is NOT one of the 1 in 5 who are unable to read or write who make-up Northern Brazil. It is we. Americans. And we all know that the Florida swimmer has a long history of troubles. Even his own account of the incident made him look like a fool.
If I were not robbed and every news service in the world reported I had been robbed, I would issue a statement I was not. I certainly would expect the Police to interview me in 4 days’ time if 2 of 4 reported I was robbed. When they finally did according to multiple reports now in fact Gunnar Bentz said the Florida swimmer made it up.
But Police there in your corrupt crime-ridden hellhole have been ACCUSED of EXACTLY THIS by Jason Lee, a jujitsu champion from New Zealand that he was robbed of $800 by POLICE. That was LESS THAN ONE MONTH AGO.
Were those monies turned-in by these Police as some type of cash demand bond payment instantly for a crime fee assessment Jason Lee had to pay less than a month ago ? Those monies should be accounted for by now if they were. Have you got evidence that the $ 800 cash from ATM by Jason Lee to them in uniform was turned-in to authorities as a cash bond assessment of a crime by Jason Lee ? Well do you punks ?
What about the Australian Paralympics’ Sailor who was robbed at gun point in Rio too ? That was more than one month and less than 2 months ago. Do you attempt to deny that too ?
And the 2 Sailors from Spain ? They reported they were robbed at gunpoint returning to their hotel as well just prior to this incident where the Australian Paralympics’ Sailor was robbed at gunpoint. Did that never happen either because you could not find those who assaulted them ?
Before all these recent incidents just like this there were 2 British Olympic Female Sailors mugged at knifepoint returning to their hotel from a Training Session. That never happened either ?
The Australian Olympics’ Team has complained since they arrived in Rio that their accommodations are not fit for human habitation. They then suffered a fire there. They have had their belongings stolen from them as well and have video of the thefts in Olympic Village. There really is no end to all these complaints. But we all have to talk about instead for the last 3 days of the Olympics not that but how a guy who went to the University of Florida and has been in nothing but issue after issue LIED to his own God Damn Mother even. Who does that ? She brought you into this world. Surely she the 1 person you can tell the Truth to right ? Not this fabricating idiot. And so they TRY to take our eyes OFF the ball about all the real CRIME at the Olympics.
Your own police have been murdered in your streets in Rio when survivors said they made a wrong turn. It’s that bad there.
So you seize this opportunity to LIE and say ALL 4 LIED and ALL 4 TURNED IN A FALSE POLICE REPORT. YOU face charges for that Police Chief for lying to the lady judge that all 4 lied and that specifically Gunnar Bentz filed a false police report to you. How can that be ? This is 4 days after the reported crime where Gunnar Bentz was supposedly a victim in said police report. You have NOT EVEN tried to talk to him in 4 days’ time. He did not owe you an explanation because you did not ask for him to. If you did not ask him in 4 day’s time about the alleged robbery then how could he have possibly (1) lied or (2) filed a false police report to you ? God Damn Liars.
The crime is so bad in your crime-ridden streets that it is an endless report of crime every few minutes.
So you seize this opportunity to STATE as FACT than Gunnar Bentz (1) LIED and (2) filed a false police report so you confiscate his U.S. Passport and detain him lying to the judge that Gunnar Bentz (1) lied to you and that (2) Gunnar Bentz filed a false police report. You think you can get away with this of an American.
Good Luck with that assholes.
3 gang members in Rio shot dead in our presence by Police the reported most BRUTAL police force in the world. Even they have been murdered after taking a wrong turn.
Excuse me Gunnar Bentz did NOT lie and the press about the crimes is real. $ 33 and a $ 20 bill is worth having your security guard run to the Taxi and stick the pointed gun directly inside obviously within inches certainly NOT pointed at the sun ? Maybe for what the idiot did next. That ?
Lochte certainly has been reported to be the one who did the $ 53 to the bathroom door. But the gas station declined to press charges. Lochte only has about one million in endorsements left and Speedo expires this year 2016. Jimmy Feigen 26 also lied and he is still in Brazil hiding because he lied.
10 billion dollars in costs for the Olympics Brazil is in the midst of its worst depression ever with their people taking to their streets in protests.
Illegal drugs illegal gun runners illegal trade of their wildlife and sex is what Brazil offers its poor citizens among the world’s most destitute where in North Brazil 1 in 5 are illiterate.
And empty seats at the Olympic Events.
Everyone is warned in Rio de Janeiro that they should take only a $ 20 bill and one credit card with no wallet, no cell phone, no rings, no jewelry – that it is unsafe. This has been the traveling advice for this crime-ridden hellhole FOREVER.
The world has been warned for decades and decades that traveling to Rio de Janeiro is NOT SAFE.
We have witnessed the green algae slime pools the bay with raw sewage the rowing competitors have competed in too and the soccer field which had a third of the grass unplayable upon. It’s not safe. And their events have been viewed by the world with NOTHING but EMPTY SEATS.
If you go to a restaurant in Rio de Janeiro and they show an event with American competing the patrons cheer the opponent and boo the American. FACT. This too has been reported by the press.
Sewage waste goes untreated and you want world-class athletes competing in it telling everyone that it is just fine.
There is nothing fine about your nation nor these Olympics you should obviously have NEVER been awarded for ALL these reasons.
How did Brazil come-up with the $ 10 billion dollars the Olympics cost them ? They made BUDGET CUTS to :
These are the VERY AREAS you are being criticized for Brazil and your corrupt government ATTEMPTING to cover ALL THIS up CUTS budgets to these very areas. You want us to take our eye off the ball and look not at these areas but at Ryan Lochte. But you SAID all 4 lied and all 4 turned in false report of crime and therefore all 4 must be detained and all 4 must have their U.S. Passport confiscated.
You want us to notice not these obvious areas of issues and problems like NONE OF THEM EXIST because 1 incident you say did not happen or wasn’t a robbery. It certainly was at gun point.
How many crimes do you actually solve ? Any ? Just NONE of these ?
You do NOT care about solving the crimes just whether or not you can somehow save face or throw doubt.
And you can’t detain Gunnar Bentz for making false police report when you did not even bother to try to talk to him until Wednesday late in the afternoon at which time he told you no robbery multiple reports say.
There are 2 thousand murders in Rio de Janeiro and 60 thousand murders in Brazil in a year.
That is 165 such incidents a night. 165 such incidents a night which ENDED in murder according to your own Police.
But these 2 guys Americans are lying. Neither of them can be manhandled by the Police right now so 2 who did not report it are.
I presume the other 165 dead per night by murder did not happen unless they are American.
I don’t care if it was the Police or not you took Gunnar Bentz’s U.S. Passport saying there was a false report of a crime. If you didn’t talk to him until Wednesday late in the afternoon where is his false police report of this ?
I only want Gunnar Bentz a 20 year old University of Georgia student HOME here in Atlanta. I do not care about ANYTHING else.
I want these Olympics over and our ladies and gentlemen home safely.
Get EVERY University of Georgia student-athlete OUT NOW. If they have competition up-coming they need security by UGA and if they are complete get them home now. We remain the TARGET of all Brazil. This just makes it WORSE. MORE of a TARGET. They have booed us and jeered us and rooted for our opponent EVERY EVENT. Even on the streets and in the restaurants since they don’t go to the games they have cheered FOR our opponent and AGAINST us.
They hate us with a passion. They resent us. They are jealous of us.
How in the world Sunday morning four (4) days ago have the Police NEVER interviewed Gunnar Bentz ? Wouldn’t THAT be the first action item when 2 were interviewed by Police that 4 were robbed ? That the Police would right then ask the other 2 ?
4 days later they STILL HAVE NOT.
Free Gunnar Bentz.
You will NEVER get away with this Brazil. NEVER. This will bring loads more bad press. Gunnar Bentz is innocent by your own accounts. You removed him from the plane to clear yourself.
Does all this make you happy Brazil that 2 Americans in your press reported a robbery of 4 American Olympic Athletes and you didn’t bother to even think of asking Gunnar Bentz until now ?
Where do you think all this will lead ?
I can assure you it will lead to TOTAL RUIN of Brazil’s reputation for these Olympic Games on the point of incessant robberies at the Olympics at gunpoint.
How many press have been robbed ?
We have read numerous stories of tourists robbed in Rio during the Olympics. How many of those have been detained at the airport ? Do you have ANY THING anything at all as evidence they did or did not occur ? Your charge remains you said false police report. You detained our student-athlete who made no police report until you detained him late Wednesday.
What will you say about the claims by the press when they all come forward of their attempted robberies ?
1 in 3 in Brazil are below Poverty standard. Lowest Gross Domestic Product per Capita in the World. Unsafe living conditions as you can readily see. They are allowed by law to burn the forests and make coffee farm or cattle farm. Soil erosion and landslides and destruction of their only resource their forests. 80% of Brazil is undeveloped. Two-thirds of the land is owned by no one; it is government owned land. So they burn it. By Brazilian Law they burn it.
It is worth $ 10 thousand dollars an acre unspoiled and $ 400 an acre for coffee farm or cattle farm which strip their only resource the forests. 3 hectares per family under Brazilian Law can be burned of public land. They are allowed to have 12 thousand legal prostitutes in Rio alone. They are gun runners and illegal drug gangs. Wildlife smuggling. These are the only places their poor economy allows its vast poor and uneducated populous to turn. It is organized crime. Nowhere for the 20 % in Northern Brazil who can not read or write even. And where does the $ 10 billion dollars cost for the Olympics come from ? Bad roads poor bridges unsafe roads where the travelers are preyed upon horrible infrastructure. And no building codes. Their poor left with nowhere to turn but crime. Illegal logging and the forests not burned for the land as progress taken to 3100 saw mills in Brazil. No concept of protection of their environment. Banana Republic.
Any ole Family is Allowed under Brazilian Law to Deforest 3 Hectares per Year and then they overgraze it. BR-163 road 3000 miles straight through the Very Heart of the Amazon to see the beauty and they can not even Build Bridge over the Amazon. In Brazil it is not even a paved road. That’s what Brazil is. This is where we send our world’s best athletes to suffer. 5 million square miles of Amazon and only 695 patrolmen who try to give out tickets but 80% of the tickets are unpaid so illegal wildlife exploitation is what the corrupt government is TELLING their poor to do to earn income and to burn the forests to devalue Brazil. Brazil is one of the worst countries to live in.
And their corrupt government hailed the world over as the most corrupt nation removed the monies for education and housing and poverty.
You hear that ?
This is 2016. The fallout from this botched Olympics will haunt you all the days of your lives. We WILL talk about it. It WILL be discussed by ALL of us. The press especially.
Portuguese government minister mugged in swish Leblon district, is that also not true ?
Everything you don’t like you say it is not true.
None of it have you solved or tried to solve. If you had wanted to solve the robbery you would have asked Gunnar Bentz about this before four (4) entire days have in fact passed.
There is NO QUESTION but that this is intended to deflect all the criticism of the worst-ever Greatest Show on Earth.
Worst ever and unsafe.
Worst Olympics all-time. More bad press and you want to make THESE CLAIMS of false report of a crime. That’s a FALSE REPORT of a FALSE REPORT of a crime with regard to Gunnar Bentz isn’t it ?
Good Luck with that.
You’ll NEVER make it stick.
Oh and one more item for discussion Brazil : I will NEVER go to Brazil. NEVER EVER NEVER. 40 thousand muggings a year in just Rio ? That is far in excess of a 100 a night. Oh, I forget. None of those ever happened either if it was an American victim. Got it.
Wild horses could not drag to me to Brazil EVER.
And as for the police did not do it, all I can say is that one I don’t care who did report the crime as it was NOT the one you have detained in Gunnar Bentz and two how could you possibly have the time to have done this robbery yourself when all your police do have time to do is to say (1) We did NOT do it and (2) No one here likes Americans anyway and (3) we have no crime and the crime itself never happened since we can’t prove it did happen.
The reason why we here in America have Taxi regulations requiring them to keep records is so that if a fare is picked up at the Marriott and 4 taken to Olympic Village, we can find that. Oh sorry I was not trying to pick on you Brazil. I forget that 20 % of you in Northern Brazil can NEITHER read nor write. It makes taking a Taxi safe for the fare and for the driver. Dumbasses. It would take us a few minutes to find a Taxi on Sunday morning which picked-up 4 at the Marriott for destination Olympic Village. Here, we are 4 days later and you not only can not even find such records but since you can’t you issue statements to the press that it NEVER HAPPENED therefore when : (1) probably neither the Police involved nor (2) the Taxi Driver can even read or write your God Damn Godforsaken friqin’ off-the-wall bullshit language no one else can speak either. All it is is “vulgar Latin.”
As for your Portuguese language of the 5 Major Languages of this Earth, Portuguese is not even among the Top 5 Languages. So it does not surprise us at all that there is something missing in the translation. Nor that when Gunnar Bentz was detained at the airport that the lawyer provided did not even speak God Damn English.
Who gives a shit if the POLICE did it or not ? Besides you, no one else cares. What we HEAR you saying is THERE was a false report of crime and then detain a guy who you never bothered to speak to until you detained. Not that it was NOT you who did it which no one again said anyway. Get over yourselves. That is NOT false report of a crime. It happens every few minutes there.
How is a lawyer supposed to DEFEND his client as to charges against him and he detained and his U.S. Passport confiscated from him by corrupt Brazilian Authorities when he does not even speak his God Damn Freaking Language ?
Not trying to pick on you Brazil or anything like that.
I mean no one in the world has criticized you at all ever have they ?
No problems with these Olympics are there Brazil ?
Your Police warn us NOT TO SCREAM when victim of one of your over a hundred muggings a night in Rio. I guess the noise is too deafening for over a hundred a night in Rio alone to scream ?
Or don’t scream like don’t report robbery if you are an American that you were robbed ?
Which is it ?
If you scream MORE who hate Americans will all congregate and make it worse ?
If you scream no one will care no one will bother because that is all you have in Brazil are folks screaming ?
In America if you scream someone will come to assist you. That is so bizarre the police would inform folks being mugged robbed and murdered not to scream.
As bizarre as the chief of police going to the judge and insisting to the judge that Gunnar Bentz MADE A FALSE REPORT OF A CRIME when he not only did not make a report at ALL but you totally FAILED as police chief to even consider in 4 days’ time that 2 came and made a report of robbery of 4 and you NEVER considered even asking the other 2 about it, until NOW 4 days later.
Then when asked if that is not aggressive on his part as chief of police to say he was told to by the judge he asked to detain Gunnar Bentz for false report of a crime.
When they say to us repeatedly every report that the government and the police are corrupt, who are they saying specifically is corrupt ?
The Judge told me to detain him ?
Or you asked the judge to detain him ?
Taxi in Rio is BAD IDEA. The industry is very poorly regulated unlike The U.S.
Walking in Rio is BAD IDEA. There are no police as they are all trying to deny any crime EVER occurred.
Flying in Rio is prohibited if you are an American who never made a police report for making a false police report.
How the hell do you expect ANYONE to come to Rio EVER AGAIN Brazil ?
Are you that God Damn Stupid ?
And who has been shitting in Guanabara Bay with 2 million times the U.S. allowable human shit to water ratio with Olympics Games there and world class athletes in it ?
Oh I am so sorry. I remember now. You said that is all fine too. No problem.
It is a trend I noted when I first went to your Official Brazil Olympics site and searched there for words such as most unsafe Olympics all-time.
You just ignore and lie about EVERYTHING hoping it and we all would just go away. Excuse me if it were not for us your Economy would be NOTHING.
Nah you don’t have any problems no issues at all Brazil with the Olympics or indeed ANYONE trying to come there and give you our monies.
You don’t have any crime. You just tell those who did not file a police report at all and whom you never bothered to interview either that they are being held on suspicion of filing a false police report.
Gunnar Bentz does not have to answer their questions. He can not answer them. He did not make ANY statement to ANYONE that he was robbed. There are no reports where he did and many reports that say he has not ever been questioned even. Well they tried last night but with a non-English speaking Lawyer defending him somehow. He can not be guilty of making a false report of a crime as he has made no report of any crime. Detaining such a person is going to be deemed illegal under Brazilian Law as is demanding as the Judge said that he can not leave until such time as he does answer their questions.
The Police did not do it ? Gunnar Bentz did not do it.
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.
John Hollis – Mark Richt APOLOGIST still AFTER fired losing 18 of 24 vs top 15 last 8 yrs here WET THE BED top teams – Saturday Down South
What we fired him for John was his last entire 8 years here of beating no one.
And, I do mean no one :
(1) 37-1 vs non-bowl teams his last entire 8 years here
(2) 36-31 vs bowl teams his last entire 8 years here
(3) combined 73-32 averaging 4-loss per season his last entire 8 years here
(4) Lost to 12 unranked teams time of game or season his last entire 8 years here
(5) Lost 7 times by MORE than 3 TD his last entire 8 years here mostly picked to win
(6) Lost to 18 of 24 teams ranked Top 15 time of game his last entire 8 years here John
Do something with it John ?
All he has to do is do better than his FIRED predecessor his last entire 8 years here John.
Given all the talent in this state as you pointed-out his predecessor WASTED it would indeed be an EASY TASK to do better than this LOW BAR set by his FIRED predecessor wouldn’t it John Hollis Saturday Down South sir ?
It had little to do with Championships for God’s sake John Hollis sir. But no Kirby only has to win NONE of those EITHER in the next whole entire decade – the bar set THIS low sir. If Kirby can better than NONE SEC Championships in the next decade then he shall have over-achieved compared to his FIRED predecessor who of course won zero SEC Championships his last entire decade here.
Kirby will go 12-2 in his inaugural season the same as his predecessor should have every year and NOT average 9 wins and 4 losses as his FIRED predecessor in fact averaged his last entire 8 years here sir. Huge difference John Hollis sir.
If you want the specifics of why – it is right here on this blog in the Categories on the right as you read this John Hollis sir.
The mistakes his FIRED predecessor made were so far-reaching and all-encompassing that it was obvious to EVERYONE that he could not beat his way out of a wet paper bag his entire last 8 years here.
It will be EASY AS PIE for Kirby to better his FIRED predecessor his last entire 8 years here won’t it John Hollis Saturday Down South sir ?
But yeah he ALSO out-recruited him. Not only a better class here in less time than his FIRED predecessor had at Miami of Florida a state which far exceeds ours here. But also Kirby got MORE of the Elite Top Prospects guys who WANT TO WIN. Elite Top Prospects HATE losing. His FIRED predecessor embraced it and repeatedly stated that “there’s something besides winning that’s important here at Georgia.”
“Wins and losses are not what defines me my Christianity does.”
“I do care about winning souls to the Lord more than being measured by wins and losses.”
“If I were judged as being a college football coach rather than as a Christian that would be a disaster.”
“No matter what happens in wins and losses with me here at Georgia, I am comfortable being forgiven by the Lord.”
“So no, I do not care about wins and losses.”
Top Elite Prospects covet winning.
Top Elite coaches too.
This resonated with the Top Elite Prospects as you pointed-out John Hollis sir.
Now all he has to do is better than his FIRED predecessor his last entire 8 years here John Hollis sir.
12-2 would do that.
So would 11-3.
Since he averaged 9-4 his last entire 8 years here all Kirby has to do is better than that John Hollis sir.
It would not hurt to have some off-field discipline instead of harsh punishment for lack thereof.
Heck if he can just only pick a QB that would be a HUGE IMPROVEMENT on his FIRED predecessor.
Actually we put-up with it for a LONG TIME his last entire 8 years here so we are EASY to please aren’t we? In fact if it up to some of the Apologists still today he’d still be here – that’s how easy we are to please.
John Hollis sir I mean he did not win an SEC Championship in an entire Decade and some of us still wanted him here so why would Kirby need to win an SEC Championship more frequently than NONE in a Decade ?
Answer he does not obviously.
We all knew his FIRED predecessor wasn’t going to win The SEC Championship this year either and the consensus was that they ALL guaranteed me that he would STILL BE HERE right now today John Hollis sir even with no SEC Championship AGAIN.
Now, what was your word “shocking” ?
It was a “shocking” firing ?
“Shocking” to whom, John Hollis Saturday Down South, sir ?
Too long overdue sir.
8 years too long overdue sir.
For NOT beating ANYONE for his last entire 8 years sir.
Losing to unranked teams his last 8 years 12 of them, getting the shit kicked-out of him every year 7 losses by more than 3 TD his last entire 8 years here sir, crapping the bed on the national stage NOT WINNING, losing to 18 of 24 top 15 teams his last 8 years here sir for us – us the # 11 All-Time Wins’ Program sir, and for likely as not losing to ANY ole team who EVEN made it to a bowl game his last entire 8 seasons here sir at 36-31.
What is shocking is that a guy who was 37-1 vs NON-BOWL teams his last entire 8 years would even have a person given the Right to POST on the Internet that it was “SHOCKING” to him.
Stick it up your ass John Hollis sir !
Grow a pair.
Dare to know something about which you find shocking.
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.
Coach Kirby Smart made a plea to ALL The Bulldog Nation to cut it OUT in his opening remarks regarding the embarrassing and counter-productive chasm between those Apologists still hanging-on for no good reason and the rest of us trying to fix this mess !
UPDATE on this :
We have annual Gala, and the guy who all the blogs STILL fawn over, is invited by the senior class.
So, we have to make Jake Eason go to Sanford Stadium where none of our players are.
And, numbnuts is supposed to be hosting RECRUITS for the last 2 days now of the recruiting period. And, tweets they are coming to Coral Gables. I’ve been to Doral Country Club several times down there. And, eaten the Cuban food.
But, he jumps on a plane to here.
Wants to let everyone know how much his players here love him.
For hiring a dysfunctional staff for 15 years.
For sending us this year to Gator Bowl, oh joy against another unranked opponent.
AND, they wanted HIM to coach them in that meaningless bowl game too !
And our unranked opponent has not beat a single Power 5 Conference Opponent with a winning record.
Nice bowl game.
Saw where someone said nobody would watch it.
Both staffs FIRED.
And, we have Coach Kirby Smart NOT at the Gala of the team he alone is the head coach of !
We don’t know what we’re doing.
Obviously, we got a far better coach (anyone would’ve been.)
And, all this is going on.
I swear to God !
The guy was not in the Top 25 vs ranked opponents for 8 years now !
Could not win the Big Games !
Lost to 12 unranked teams time of game or for season for 8 years now !
Blown-out 7 times by MORE than 3 TD for 8 years now !
37-1 vs non-bowl teams 36-31 vs bowl teams for 8 years now !
Averaging 4 LOSSES per season for 8 years now !
And, someone thinks after we FIRED him that we want HIM to coach us in the bowl game, or be at OUR Gala ?
Then, Chipper Towers (Apologist to this very day) puts up a picture where numbnuts was trying to SAVE his job and flew out there to a diner the day BEFORE he was fired.
No folks !
Recruits should be at the Gala ! For heaven’s sakes guys !
And, OUR Coach Kirby Smart should be at OUR Gala !
Good Lord !
And the fired coach who is head coach at team we are 7-4-1 all-time against should be down there having a party for HIS RECRUITS who are there going, uh – where is the new coach who said he wanted me here ?
Does anybody else agree with me on ANY of this ?
I am a better salesman than this. I know better than this.
Good Lord !
What are the Apologists of the FIRED COACH doing now ?
Holding a God Damn Vigil on FACEBOOK for his sorry ass and whining to everyone that it is unjustified that he was FIRED.
You got it.
And, no Chipper Towers – that’s a month old picture now. You know ? Back in NOVEMBER !
Arky and 4-loss vols should be 5-loss vols nipping at our heels, too.
The SEC is the top conference in the Seattle Times Poll.
Sickening looking at the teams ranked ahead of us in ALL these polls, with the # 8 talent, isn’t it ?
We have NO GOOD WIN.
AND, a BAD LOSS.
And, two (2) blow-outs.
Seattle Times does not come out with their poll until Monday, so I had to wait on this one. I was not rubbing salt in the wounds to wait until now to let it be known.
It is what it is. We are in his 15th season, he has lost 18 of the latest 24 after 2007 vs Top 15, along with 12 unranked teams beating us like the vols this season again, and 7 count them SEVEN (7) blow-outs of
MORE THAN 3 TD after 2007
with two (2) more of those this season.
15th season and he has NO QB.
He ran off Jacob Park whom I had hoped to be a 4-year Starter. TCU gets him ?
He would’ve STARTED against Florida AND Kentucky.
Brice Ramsey Mark Richt can not be bothered to teach the basics of throwing the football following through and being set, and this numb-nuts Greyson Damn Lambert is another in a LONG STRING of Mark Richt wrong guesses at QB Joe Tereshinski III, Joe Cox, Hutson Mason and now Greyson Damn Lambert.
Want I should rattle off the teams AHEAD of us in this poll ?
Trust me you do NOT want to know who they are.
We can NOT throw the football.
Our coach came here as the QB coach and Offensive Coordinator.
We are clueless on personnel on Offense, have been, continue to be, will be.
All these CUPCAKES all season long and 2 games. Can we be bothered to get up for the only 2 games ?
5 unanswered TD
4 unanswered TD
And, the loss to the unranked vols to-boot !
And, then CUPCAKES… all cupcakes.
CUPCAKE in our MEANINGLESS BOWL GAME too.
Auburn is our best win and in The SEC, they are 2-5
Where are the guys who told me how great Mark Richt is ?
Singing a different tune, are you ?
Hiding behind your damned keyboard ?
Well, punk ?
When we are # 11 all-time in wins and # 5 in NFL Draft Picks and # 8 in average recruiting ranking, why have we LOST 18 of latest 24 after 2007 vs Top 15 ?
Oh, and why 12 LOSSES MORE against unranked teams after 2007 ?
And, why averaging 4 losses per season after 2007 – 8 years now, 32 losses ?
He has ALWAYS called all the shots. Watching the game on TV, I could tell he was making the calls on Offense.
How’d the offense do ?
They sucked !
That’s how they did.
Mark Richt will be named “settled for field goal” once he retires.
He also will be marked with making the wrong choices at QB.
When the offense left the field, he raised his mic.
There is no question that we all put pressure on Mark Richt following his showing vs Florida.
We still have not beat any good teams.
Auburn is 2-5 in The SEC.
Missouri is 1-5 in The SEC.
South Carolina 1-7
And, of course, we LOST to 4-Loss vols.
Any Offensive Coordinator for Mark Richt has always been nothing but a puppet Offensive Coordinator.
Mike Bobo is doing like shit out there at whatever his school is he is the coach for, as I said all along he wouldn’t. Nor has he recruited anyone out there, so his future is also bleak.
Not that he did shit here either. Because he most certainly did NOT.
Mike Bobo’s record at *Offensive Coordinator (*=puppet) is that of Mark Richt’s here, which speaks for itself that the Offense settled for field goals, lost 18 of 24 vs Top 15 time of game # 41 nationally after 2007 when we’re # 11 All-Time in Wins and also lost 30 of 64 games vs teams who went on to a bowl game as the puppet O.C. after 2007.
Brian Schottenheimer is no different : Mark Richt calls the shots, and always has.
Seemingly lost on the DISNEYdawgs.com this morning, is that it was the DEFENSE that won the game and most certainly proved nothing positive about Mark Richt and Brian Schottenheimer teaching their quarterbacks a damn thing.
Our QB play was abysmal again, which it was last year with Mike Bobo too.
Yes, Huck. Mark Richt clearly is involved in the offense.
After all that Brian Schottenheimer said all Summer about game managers at QB, you really think Brian Schottenheimer had, has, or will have any say on Greyson Damn Lambert ?
The guy sucks at QB. Sucks. Worst Mark Richt QB ever ! And, that is saying something with the likes of Greyson Lambert, Hutson Mason, Joe Tereshinski III and Joe Cox – all bullshit artists bragged about by MARK RICHT.
No one else bragged about these Mark Richt Quarterbacks EXCEPT Mark Richt.
Mike Bobo and Mark Richt average 4 losses a season after 2007 together, and it continues without Mike Bobo.
Our problem is on OFFENSE and always has been.
Only DISNEYdawgs.com figure that when we give up 4 unanswered TD or 5 unanswered TD that the defense is the problem. Mark Richt will not be able to retain Jeremy Pruitt, who is HOT-TO-TROTT about all this bullshit on offense during his tenure here – and with good Damn Reason !
We are clueless on offense ! Absolutely totally clueless. We have no damn QB ! How the hell in year 15, do we have no QB ? Try explaining that ? The Auburn fumbles over-shadowed the Reggie Davis fumble on special teams, the horrible over-throws on deep balls by Greyson Damn Lambert – his FLAT pitch FUMBLE to Sony Michel – 3rd and 41 yards to go – his inability to tuck and run – his poor progressions – our inability on offense to do ANYTHING but rely on special teams and defense to bail them out when Mark Richt doesn’t even practice special teams which rank right up there with Offense as the problem around here has been the problem around here continues to be the problem around here and always will be the problem around here with Mark Richt the coach and why we can’t beat SHIT with him as our coach – taking a knee down 3-10 then bragging by the coach that “I think we’re on the right track” – the bobble by Isaiah McKenzie on the horrible pass behind him by Greyson Damn Lambert – the drop by Isaiah McKenzie on 3rd down right to his breadbasket – and with Isaiah McKenzie jawing early in the game and then slams the ball down in the end zone after scoring NOT CALLED PENALTY – Malcolm Mitchell on the back of the defender on a pass that should NEVER have been released – and the utter continuation of our total inability to give our Dirty Dozen Running Backs of Thomas Brown an Opportunity EVEN.
If we were playing a real team, do you think we would’ve won because Mark Richt called the Offense like he has for 15 years here now ?
(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.

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.”

# 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) email@example.com
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.
• “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. Georgia’s situation is closer to Ohio State’s. In Ohio, kids grow up wanting to be Buckeyes. In Georgia, they grow up wanting to be Bulldogs. Ohio State was very good under Jim Tressel, but you didn’t see the Buckeyes take the next step until Urban Meyer came along. Now, they have the most talented team in the country. Meanwhile, the state of Ohio Meanwhile, 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, a sharp athletic director, 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.
• As far as taking the next step, there are a lot of factors. But let’s be honest. If some things break differently in the 2012 SEC title game, Georgia has a national title under Mark Richt and we’re probably not having this conversation. But the fact is Georgia has been the best team in the East on paper for most of the years since Tim Tebow left Florida and has two East titles and no SEC titles to show for it. Given its advantages and the current state of the SEC East, Georgia should be in the national title hunt most years.
• Mark Richt is on a very short list of coaches I’d want my kid to play for. He is secure in who he is and how he wants to run the program. He clearly cares about his players, and the program he created to help transition to life after football is a prime example. He hasn’t compromised what he considers his mission for the sake of winning. That’s great from a human standpoint and tough from a professional one, because he gets paid a healthy salary to win titles. 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.”
All 20 of these are lost from Mark Richt’s teams after this season, and Alabama actually loses MORE than these 20 after this season as well, but Paul Feinbaum and Matt Stinchcomb both agree that Mark Richt will lose to Auburn and to the vols this regular season. That does NOT bode well for Mark Richt that he should lose to the vols and to Auburn this regular season because Alabama is ranked better than BOTH of those teams and we have to play them twice.
Mark Richt has to play this put up or shut up season along with having to play Alabama twice Auburn and the vols teams such as Florida, Georgie tek yellowjackets, South Carolina, Missouri, and whomever our opponent is in our bowl game.
There is only 1 assurance from Mark Richt and that is that whomever his bowl opponent will be, the bowl will be his 15th in a row meaningless bowl opponent – as he never has played in a meaningful bowl game, let alone won against a top bowl opponent in such a bowl game.
Edward Aschoff, ESPN Staff Writer who just last week said the job is Brice Ramsey’s to lose because he has such a great talent with his arm strength, is singing a different tune today and now says that there is no hurry whatsoever for Mark Richt to name a starter with all the cupcakes we face the entire month of September. Mark Richt said there was a fumble in an exchange on Offense yesterday. Duh.
The Mark Richt Apologists can fill your head with bullshit that losing these 20 after this season – nearly every Starter – is no big deal with our sorry Junior Class this season by stark contrast, but the facts are that recruiting has not been our issue here with Mark Richt. It’s been his inexplicable losses every season after 2007, and his more than 4 losses per season average after 2007, and his 3 wins – all when Mark Richt went unranked that season – against teams ranked higher than us in the AP or Coaches’ Polls for the seasons after 2007 out of the 24 games against such teams.
This has not been caused by lack of talent. On the contrary, we’ve stockpiled more talent here than any school in the nation as measured by average Scout.com recruiting rankings and as verified by NFL Draft Picks of which there will be another bumper crop after this season.
The answer, my friends, is that Mark Richt must win this season as his goal, and not converting these boys into his religion, as he says is his goal instead.
But, can he ?
Is he going to change his priority ?
Will converting the boys to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior all of a sudden cease to be his goal this season, and instead he will overnight become GATA, finding instead that there is nothing more important than winning here ?
Mark Richt, to answer that question, says that he has peace converting the boys to Jesus Christ as his primary goal so much so that he does not even want to be known as a college football coach – that that is not what defines him but Jesus Christ.
I do not have ANY doubts personally.
15-game season for the top teams, and I am absolutely certain we will go 9-4 or 9-5 if we play Alabama twice.
I read yesterday on one of our “approved Bulldog blogs” that he said that Alabama is weak this season. Excuse me, Alabama loses as much if not more after this season than we do, and will in fact have as many NFL Draft Picks after this season as we do, if not more.
In fact, talent has never been our issue here.
Coaching decisions, stubbornness and stupidity, along with complacency that well winning isn’t all that damn important anyway in the whole scheme of God’s Plan, remain our issues. Don’t they ?
Stubbornness is not a Christian trait; in fact, just the opposite, Christians are the antonym of adamant, headstrong, inflexible, ornery, persistent, relentless, tenacious, self-willed, and set in one’s ways.
Mark Richt says that coaching and winning is not what defines him, but that converting the boys over to Jesus Christ is.
All of us have all said this for years. That he looks asleep on the sidelines, disinterested, uncaring in the outcome, and all too frequently having his teams unprepared.
Perhaps this is the EXCUSE in a long steady stream of EXCUSES from him for this up-coming season. That we are to all focus on NOT HAVING A STARTING QUARTERBACK, and him with the nation’s # 1 QB coming in next season, Jacob Eason.
Whose damn fault is that that Mark Richt has not prepared a back-up QB for us since DJ Shockley in 2001, his first season at our helm ?
What the freaking hell was Mark Richt doing all last year with our # 80 Passing Offense, Starting a QB who by himself lost to 4 far less-talented teams than we gave Mark Richt to surround Hutson Mason only to watch Hutson Mason with far more talent than his opposing QB had to surround himself with losing to Nebraska, South Carolina, Georgie tek and Florida as our Starting QB ?
Why did Brian Schottenheimer just last Thursday announce that he detests the term game manager ? To hear his head rattle ? Or, to take on Mark Richt head-on on our Starting QB 2015, unlike that he witnesses studying film of all our players this year who all were all here last season, riding the damn bench and never prepared ?
Our Starting QB is still not practicing with the ones, still not lining-up behind the new # 1 Center to get that down. Still not throwing to the ones. Our great OL still has no idea which QB they will be blocking for. Our receivers are still not getting their timing down with their QB because they are NOT practicing with him. We are preparing to be unprepared for 2015 so that we have a BUILT-IN EXCUSE for another mediocre 2015-2016 season.
We are going to drag this out all season, so we have a built-in excuse for 2015-2016 season.
That and to destroy the confidence and timing and make it self-fulfilling prophesy that our Starting QB 2015 is the only problem we have – fixed by # 1 QB nationally AGAIN next season.
I do not remember Matthew Stafford being named the Starter, either.
In fact, I recall specifically that Mark Richt told us all that Joe Tereshinski III was a BETTER QB than Matthew Stafford.
How in the name of God are we going to be prepared to play 6 regular season games against teams named by the VOTERS in the AP Poll last night : Florida, Georgie tek, Alabama, Auburn, vols and Missouri ?
Or, more importantly, for games after those 6 ? You know ? The SEC Championship Game we’ve not won after 2005. This is 2015. And, the play-offs ? You know, the new last year 4-team format replacing the previous 2-team BCS Bowl Games’ Play-Off Mark Richt won only 2 of beating hapless 5-loss # 23 FSU in 2002 and beating # 19 Hawai’i as his only BCS Bowl Wins ?
When the freaking hell are we going to play in Mark Richt’s 1st meaningful bowl game ?
When Hell friqin’ freezes over ?
“We’re never goofing off.” What have we been doing for 14 years ? Goofing-Off ?
“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.”
Do you know where you will be spending Eternity ?
Rooting for a football program with no strategy and no plan except to have me and everyone else accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
Excuse me Mark Richt, that is NOT what we hired you for. Is it ?
Mark Richt tells us “there’s something besides winning that’s important here.” There is ?
Are we up for every game and treat each game with the respect that game deserves that we must win and do so in a responsible fashion ? Should the head football coach at a state-owned institution really state that there is something besides winning that is important here at Georgia ?
When he 1st got here, he appeared to want to win as long as it is done in a respectful fashion. Nowadays – these latest 7 years making up the 2nd half of his career here at Georgia – he has dropped off from winning 81 % of his games (42-10.)
More recently now, Mark Richt is only 68 % win percentage after 2007.
I firmly believe that Kathryn’s cancer treatment is the Significant Emotional Event that changed Mark Richt.
Imagine Mark Richt being so bold to say that now that he is on this streak of having now lost to 10 unranked teams, that he now says oh here at Georgia there is something beside winning that is important here ?
That supposed to make us feel better Mark Richt ?
That the mantra that is supposed to carry us through sir ?
That what we are supposed to say to ourselves now that we lose to lousy unranked teams, barely beat more teams who go to a bowl game that season than we lose to, hardly ever anymore beat anyone away from Sanford who ends up Top 25 for the season, and lose to nearly all the teams who are ranked higher than us in the polls for each season.
Oh, here at Georgia there’s something beside winning that’s important here.
Bullshit there is.
Winning is everything and nothing else matters.
Keep telling yourself Mark Richt’s little nagging bullshit statement that there’s something beside winning that is important here, and maybe YOU can live with ALL these 29 losses these latest 7 years – more LOSSES than 4 season average FOR seven damn years now and counting.
Now that he is on this streak (34-28) against teams who even went on to a bowl game that season.
Now that he is on this streak having lost 21 of the latest 24 games against higher ranked teams for the season.
60 % win percentage vs the top teams time of game or end of season for the 1st 7 years here; Now he is on this streak that he has dropped off to only 29 % win percentage against the same teams since.
This # 11 All-Time Wins’ Program can not expect to do better than this ? Just friqin tell yourselves that the coach says he is doing it the right way that after all these mounting losses to top teams, away top teams, bad ugly inexplicable losses, and teams higher ranked than us, that here at Georgia there’s something here at Georgia besides winning that’s important here. Ah bullshit. What a load of hogwash to hang on our hats on now that he is on this streak of losing to everyone : the less talented, the higher ranked, the teams who even make it to a damn bowl game, that there’s something besides winning that’s important here.
Is Religion the problem here ? This SEE ? ( Significant Emotional Event )
Does our head coach REALLY believe that “there’s something besides winning that’s important here” at Georgia ? You bet he does. He has lost his balance between Religion and head coach football.
No Religion or Belief can Save us in our football program when the stated goals now of Mark Richt are that “there’s something besides winning that’s important here.”
Excuse me vols’ fan, but if there EVER was an UNDERACHIEVING FOOTBALL PROGRAM, it is in fact the vols’ program this entire century.
Since 2000, the vols are
# 40 nationally in won/lost record
You have a lot of balls to write a review of Georgia saying that :
” all the talk about Georgia’s overall status as an underachieving program — which is a fair argument, considering the lack of titles as the flagship program in one of the nation’s most fertile recruiting areas — ”
” They’ll occasionally fall a little short of lofty preseason expectations, and even most of their fans will concede that point ”
Georgia is in the Top 10 nationally in won/lost record since 2000, while the vols are # 40.
“in the big room at SEC Football Media Days last week…a reporter asked Richt if he ever got tired of the constant criticismhe receives for having come up short for a championship each of the last nine years”
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 have no idea what we are doing. None. Jacob Park is so much better a quarterback than Hutson Mason. So very much better. Jacob Park will be in the NFL Combine. Jacob Park will play in the NFL.
We play favorites around here.
We did the same to Zach Mettenberger in 2009. We should have played him against Okie State, as I called for pre-game. But, we were told with a chronic shoulder AND the flu so bad he had to be flown out there on a private charter, that Joe Cox was the better quarterback.
I said all last year that Jacob Park is a better quarterback than Hutson Mason. I said it ALL pre-season. I said we could beat Clemson with any ole quarterback, since they had no offense, I said. I said it AGAIN before South Carolina that Jacob Park would beat South Carolina and that Hutson Mason would NOT and the reason would be Hutson Mason.
We did the same in 2006, with Mark Richt telling us that Joe Tereshinski III is a better quarterback than Matthew Stafford.
We are buffoons continuously at choosing our Quarterback Starter. We play favorites.
Hutson Mason was NEVER better than Jacob Park, Faton Bauta, or Brice Ramsey.
Joe Tereshinski III was the ONLY Quarterback Mark Richt could start against Florida 2005 who could have possibly lost that game.
Joe Cox was clearly not the Quarterback for us out in Stillwater.
Jacob Park I hoped to be a 4-year Starter.
He was NEVER given a CHANCE even here. The smartest player on the team, he made a 100 on the Play Book.
He threw the interception in the G-Day Game, and I said at the time, that that would be the excuse Mark Richt would use to jerk him around.
I am told we do not over-sign here. That we do it the right way here. That is a bold-faced lie. We have signed 31 players this Summer. 31. We do too over-sign.
Jacob Park is NOT the odd-man-out.
How in the hell did we Start Joe Tereshinski III in 2006, instead of Matthew Stafford ?
How did Zach Mettenberger not even get one single snap vs Okie State ?
How does Mark Richt live with himself lying to us about who is the better quarterback ?
He has FAILED to prepare Jacob Park. That is ON MARK RICHT.
He has failed to prepare Brice Ramsey. That, too, is on Mark Richt. Brice Ramsey has not even been taught proper footwork. He has not been set to make a throw here, yet.
Faton Bauta ? Jerks him around too. All season when we brought in Faton Bauta, we had a designed run called. That is not preparing a back-up QB, but a running back.
Keith Marshall we never did get him out in space.
That is where he belongs too.
We tell Leonard Floyd he is a great QB sacking machine. He is not. He chases them around. He hurries them. He does NOT sack them.
We WASTE talent around here, like it is going out of style.
I hate this for us that Jacob Park perceives he is just the latest in the playing of Favorites, trophy for everyone, lose inexplicable losses EVERY YEAR because we play the wrong quarterback.
Why sign these guys if you are not going to prepare them ? There is NO WAY Jacob Park was given an opportunity to play here. No way.
He, like all the others before him here, will leave and prove the point again that we are buffoons at selecting our Starting QB.
This all reflects VERY POORLY on Brian Schottenheimer. He went running to the press just yesterday to say that he is not sold on our quarterbacks here and that is why we went after a proven no-good Quarterback as a transfer-in.
We are buffoons at this choosing our Starting Quarterback, aren’t we ?
Why have we lost 29 games these current 7 years ? (More than 4 a season.)
Why can’t we beat the teams higher ranked than us in the Final AP Polls ?
Why can’t we win over AP Poll Top 25 teams away from Sanford ?
Why, likely as not these latest 7 years, have we LOST to half the teams making a bowl game ?
What do we need to do to win our 7th national championship in football ?
Why is our won/lost record compared to our average Scout.com recruiting ranking the worst in America ?
We waste talent.
We play Favorites.
Trophy for everyone.
We, at Georgia, have a higher – more important – objective than winning.
Best of Luck, Jacob Park, sir. We will see in the NFL, too, sir.
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.
As we embark upon Mark Richt’s third seven-year period here at UGA, we have all come to love the man and what he stands for. He is an excellent role model. He is a fantastic recruiter. He was more successful when he first got here than any Bulldogs’ coach.
I consider those who still brag on his coaching, not his recruiting, over his most current 7-year period here, to be what is holding him back.
In his first seven year period here, I said frequently that his coaching staff would be his downfall. He had guys out of their knowledge base, coaching that which they did not even play themselves because well they fit in with Mark Richt’s own ideals. He eschewed anyone affiliated with the NFL, and shunned any such from joining his staff. He said as much.
We won. We won big. We were certainly by all measures, elite. We did not win it all, but we were certainly elite. We beat the top teams. We did not beat all the top teams, but we did win games against top teams. We went on the road and won. We beat teams who went to the bowl games those years. We beat top 25 teams, as measured by what they actually accomplished those seasons in the final polls, not what they were ranked at game time in week 2, only to not even make a bowl game. We got top recruits. We had a dynamic offense. We played great special teams, and played our top players at the key positions on the special teams. We stockpiled talent, and sent them in droves into the NFL.
That was his first 7 years here.
Since, has been anything but acceptable. We lose on the road against teams making the top 25 these latest 7 years. We lose to bowl teams, in fact only beating 54 % of the teams who even went to a bowl game these latest current 7 years by stark contrast. We lose to far less talented teams. We lose all too often nowadays to teams we should have beat the shit out of. We still recruit very well. When we leave Sanford Stadium, we lose. We cannot beat the top teams.
Through it all, we have had a small vocal community of Bulldogs’ fans who call anyone who dares to offer up this realization of the truth of the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era as he enters his 15th season this up-coming season, Mark Richt haters.
How could anyone hate Mark Richt ? There is not a more beloved man on this planet.
His coaching results for his high-class recruiting have been piss poor the most recent 7-year period.
This latest 7-year period, hopefully over now, has been marked not only by bad press of mounting losses, more than 4 losses a season average for 7 seasons damn it, but also this most current 7-year period of Mark Richt here has been marked by horrid off-field strife. It has grown exponentially – these ongoing off-field woes and bad press for Mark Richt’s recruits, for which he is given such high praise and rightfully so for bringing here to our storied program. We got down to only 72 remaining signed scholarship recruits to play in our last game against Louisville a couple of months’ ago now. He had none who went early in the NFL Draft 2014, yet of the 118 he signed to play against Louisville with a redshirt season the latest 5 years, he suited-up only 72. 16 of our signed scholarship recruits in 2014 alone were either arrested, or suspended, or kicked-off the team in 2014.
We have seen Mark Richt on the sidelines basically change from the man he once was when he first got here his first 7 years here of high energy emotionally charged, to a guy who seems resigned to failure, or no longer wants to be here coaching.
He even just recently admitted that he in public can tell us that here at Georgia, we adhere to something more important than winning.
This from the young gun we hired who said when he beat the # 4 vols in 2001 that he had knocked the lid off this program, and winning was going to be a staple for us.
Well, although it was not a staple that year 2001 we beat the # 4 vols because we lost 4 games 2001, but winning certainly was a staple here for the next 6 seasons.
Then, something happened. I have my theory on that, if anyone is interested. And, all of a sudden, overnight, Mark Richt was a changed man after 2007.
We had the # 1 rank pre-season in both the AP and Coaches’ Polls because of the momentum he had built here in winning. And, it all fell apart that very night we I guess the players felt EARNED that # 1 rank. 20 players that very night both polls ranked us # 1 for the 1st time in preseason history for UGA, went out and CELEBRATED.
We never recovered from all the off-field mayhem, culminating with one injured player in the all the bar room brawls, actually beating up St. Mary’s Hospital. That’s right. He attacked the hospital building.
Since then, we have played like shit.
I’d like to point out again, if I may, that the problem we have around here are the fans who act like what has happened since that night following the 2007 season, is acceptable.
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.
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.
Richard Seymour has moved to the plush Northern Suburbs but he was Mark Richt’s 1st NFL Draft Selection in 2001, of which he has had now 82 NFL Draft Picks in total. He would go on to earn $ 76 million dollars in the NFL, and I felt he was robbed of the NFL Super Bowl MVP. He was the highest paid DL in the NFL, and was defensive team captain winning 3 Super Bowl Championships for New England. His career is over now. He scored an NFL Touchdown. He had 496 tackles, 57 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions, and 7 Pro Bowls, after being named on numerous 1st Team All-America Teams here at Georgia.
Richard Seymour’s adopted son Devondre Seymour is now already here at UGA, playing OL. I remember Richard Seymour’s days here well. Destined for greatness, he has done himself and us, proud. His son is 6′ 6″ and 305 lbs., same as his Dad, who was by the way the # 6 overall NFL Draft Pick 2001. New England’s Robert Kraft got a bargain for the boy from Gadsden South Carolina for the man with 3 Super Bowl rings – one I forever will say was because of him.
Super Bowl XXXVI Richard Seymour single-handedly won the game for New England, not Tom Brady Super Bowl MVP. He sacked Kurt Warner and harassed him all day long. He stopped the running game of the Rams, holding them to only 90 yards rushing. He broke up passes, batting balls down, made tackle after tackle leading the Patriots in tackles, and caused the interception which won the Super Bowl. Tom Brady, who completed 16 passes for 145 yards and 1 Touchdown Pass, was awarded the Super Bowl MVP, instead. Anyone who watched the game, knows exactly who dominated the game when U2 played It’s a Beautiful Day at halftime. But this is not Richard’s son so we shall see if being brought up by him teaches him anything that seemed innate to Richard.
We have many holes, but OL is certainly up there at the top with our aging OL now. Seems we go too many years with top OL here now, seemingly happy in our ignorance not to recruit another 5 every year. This is one of those years.
Many times, we’ve pulled this. Not signing OL.
2015 no different on that.
We also make a concerted effort to not sign a single Fullback except once in 7 years now; yet as OL are plentiful, there are over 200 top fullbacks our rivals sign, instead. Like OL. And, we run a fullback oriented offense. Crazy what we do on OL and at Fullback.
We also did not sign speedsters this season. Usually, we do. This season, this is a plodding group on the whole.
Devondre Seymour is not the only junior college 2-year signee this season. We also signed a linebacker from JUCO, Chuks Amaechi of Arizona. These guys fill-in a roster shortened by arrested/suspended/kicked-off players. We are down to only 72 of the latest 118 signed who with redshirt would’ve played against Louisville, and there was not 1 Early NFL Draft Pick in the most recent NFL Draft.
This has taken a toll on us, as a program. On and Off the field.
Giddy Bulldogs’ fans try to censor this discussion. But, Mark Richt has been here a long, long, long time now. His 1st NFL Draft Picks’ sons are here now. Once 81 % win percentage, more recently the 2nd half of his career, he has been mediocre 68% and to quote Todd Gurley II believed to still be the top Bulldog NFL Draft Pick 2015, Todd Gurley II said in 2014 that he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre. His contract will have a stipulation about being able to perform after his surgery.
The Giddy Bulldogs’ fans want to harp on :
(1) Great Recruiting of Mark Richt such as this fine class
(2) What a fine man he is, therefore doing it the right way.
What they fail to want to tie to that is that if he is responsible for the great talent you give him credit for bringing here today, then he by God Above is responsible for that which they do on and off the field representing him, then.
And, why lose so much ?
34 times Mark Richt has played teams higher ranked for the seasons 2008-2014, and he has lost 23 of them.
Mark Richt has also lost to ten (10) teams not ranked time of game or for the season AP or Coaches after 2007.
This is unacceptable that # 11 all-time in 1-A wins would be # 21 after 2007 losing not only to the better teams two-thirds of the time, but in addition losing to 10 unranked teams. All of this is traced directly to the attrition, mostly arrested/suspended/kicked-off. All of this is attributable to conflicting messages such as I love you said to those dismissed. I believe it is Mark Richt’s Religion which holds us back therefore. I do not love those who got so much bad press that they got kicked-off. I tell them to obey the rules, instead, directly. I love them ? The hell I do. I want to win football games against the top teams better than 1 out of 3 and I certainly do not want to lose IN ADDITION to ALL THAT, another 10 games in 7 latest seasons to unranked teams.
It is too much, and has got to come to an end.
But, it is good to see we got an Offensive Lineman, and fine young man like his Dad. We also got on the OL another big boy in Sam Madden of Barnegat High School, which is one I had not heard of, even though I spent 2 years post-graduate studying at Princeton, nearby. Pat Allen from Maryland joins our OL too. Sage Hardin from Marist here joins our OL too.
Jonathan Ledbetter out of Tucker will be a force from his Defensive Lineman position. Alabama really wanted him, so too did Auburn, Florida State, Florida, Clemson, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Stanford. There is no reason he cannot be 1st Team All-America. He teams up with Chauncey Rivers out of Stephenson and the duo will be a terror. These 2 names will be household names if they can keep their noses clean. Perhaps the best of the 3 might be Natrez Patrick out of Mays. We also signed Michael Barnett out of South Carolina. In all we got twice as many defensive players as you can see than we did Offensive. Tae Crowder was going to go to Georgia Southern University until we offered him last night, and he joins us at RB. He jumped on our offer. I can appreciate that. Justin Young joins the DL from Grayson here. Daquan Hawkins from Westlake here as well on the DL.
It’s a haul. 28 and counting. Wow ! I thought you could only sign 25, and that Mark Richt never over-signs ? How many of these will be arrested/suspended/kicked-off ?
I mean it IS what Mark Richt does, isn’t it ?
He recruits them.
He gets credit for recruiting them.
They get arrested/suspended/kicked-off and well everyone else recruited them too.
Not Mark Richt’s fault.
He hasn’t lost control.
Nothing like that.
So when he got down to only 67 scholarships recruits who played in the last bowl game it looks like a third of the team are signed scholarship recruits for Mark Richt now February 4 2015.
Will it make a difference ?
Because he can’t coach and he can’t teach his recruits he gets such great praise for signing here to either win the big games nor keep their noses clean.
Can he ?
Oh and he loses to unranked teams double-digits of them just after 2007.
1 every year.
Still you try to shut me up and brag on the recruits.
Talent has never been Mark Richt’s missing link, it’s been his lack of coaching, lack of detail, bad choices at Starting QB, lack development of QB in college where the QB is KING, and more arrested/suspended/kicked-off while losing to top 15 teams nearly every time now after 2007, barely able to beat more teams playing in a bowl game than he plays likely as not lose those, and oh yeah lose to unranked teams at least 1 a year sometimes MORE.
With all this talent.
I look forward to rooting these guys on, the ones who are not arrested/suspended/kicked-off and long for the day they are coached by a real coach who does NOT say that there’s something here at Georgia that is MORE important than WINNING.
All the press goes to the fine young man Trenton Thompson of Albany. That’s pronounced Al Bany’. What a great guy.
Rashad Roundtree of Augusta, should be a big help in our secondary even in 2015. Jarvis Wilson will be too. As will Juwuan Briscoe of Thomas Stone, which is Baltimore. Rico McGraw joins Jeremy Pruitt’s secondary from Nashville 4 hours’ away. Highly recruited. Johnathan Abram East Marion High in Columbia Mississippi. One would think with the resurgence of Ole Miss and Mississippi State that they could keep him there, but we really went out on defensive and signed top players from all over to get this defense back to Junkyard Dawgs’ style, like we all grew up on here. Erk Russell always took the most talented offensive players and put them on defense and the best of them then, at Rover. Deandre Baker joins the db from Miami. Kirby Choates, Jr. joins us from East Point to our db as well.
Terry Godwin’s older sister, who transferred in during his recruitment by us, has barely gotten on the court at all for Andy Landers, and she only has 1 more year after this one. I have followed her for you on this blog since we gave her a Scholarship.
Gary McRae out of Randolph Clay is quick and will be a stand-out for us at his linebacker position, which has been one of our strengths now for a long time. Even more heralded if that possible, is linebacker D’Andre Walker of Langston Hughes.
Jackson Harris out of Columbia Central Tennessee is a huge get at Tight End, but we have not thrown to Tight Ends recently. Not sure what that was all about I wrote continuously, and I fully expect Jackson Harris to be a main target for Schottenheimer.
Michael Chigbu of Holy Cross in New Orleans pronounced Na Or’lins will be a big boost to the depleted wide receiver corps for us, as will Jayson Stanley of Creekside. Shaquery Wilson as well from Florida.
In all, 14 are recruited to here from out-of-state. Half of the 28. That is $ 50,000 each for the 14 per year. $ 700 thousand dollars per year and 3 and a half million until they graduate. For this, we’d appreciate they not add their names to the roll of those arrested/suspended/kicked-off. Just imagine only 72 remaining today of the 118 signed with redshirt who could’ve been playing the latest game ? The investment in their education for these 29 in total. 29 recruits, 14 out-of-state recruits. Total investment just in their education here at UGA is $ 7 million dollars. The impact upon each of the 29 lives is millions they will make their working lives. I made $ 5 million after I graduated UGA. They will probably make more. Many do. Some will make $ 76 million like Richard Seymour.
We over-sign every year to try to catch-up. It inflates our overall average recruiting ranking. We lose way too many good football players because we do not tell them what I will now :
Go to class. Study. Exercise. College is not to get drunk or high. It is to get an education. You are on full scholarship to my alma mater, recognized worldwide as a leader in many fields you might take classes in. Work hard in the area of staying with the right crowd. My college friends are my best friends today. Cull the group when they act wild. Tell them you have to study. Put the book on your bed. Buy a small lamp. Put it at the head of your bed. Fall asleep reading. Wake up, and read more then fall asleep again. Get outside. Play basketball, ping pong, date the gals and ask them about their studies.
If you came here for a good time, you are wasting your one go around.
This is the time for all good scholarship recruits to understand why they are in college and why we give you this $ 7 million dollars – just those we just signed – to come to my alma mater and get an education that will make you $ 5 million as I in your career. If you are Richard Seymour, that is $ 76 million.
You are setting yourself up for life. Do it like I did. I never stepped foot in the Red and Black. Not once. Never accepted the invitations. I studied. I practiced and ran of course, and had loads of fun mostly from getting all A in every class and being the # 1 student in every class I took. I worked hard at it. When I made a B, I took an incomplete and took the course again along with my regular load. I took one class 3 times, and graduated with 238 hours when 180 is all that was required. I did it in 3 years, going every Summer. I never missed one class, nor ever was late to class. I read every book BEFORE I stepped foot in any course I took. I bought used books with no writing in them, or new if I had to.
I know how to read. (1) Skim see what’s in it (2) Read 2nd time until you learn something from each page. Learn anything, quit reading that page, go to next page. (3) 3rd time through, this time for the 1st time, read every word. (4) 4th time through, study each page and understand what is being presented; but, if you find a difficult passage, skip it (5) Go back now 5th time through, and this time, spend as much time as is necessary to be able when the Prof brings the subject up in class, to sit on 2nd row, raise your damned hand and say Sir, I read that passage and you are saying this now, but from what I read, it was attempting to make it sound like that instead. I am confused sir, can you explain. Ask to meet him after class and when he is available. (6) When everyone else is off on the weekends partying and going home wasting time in the car to see high school buddies to party hearty, stay in the dorm. Be boring. Damn it, study for 4 years. Read the book a 6th time now, fully understanding it. Keep the books for lifetime as I. Refer to them. And, when the others in the class come to you for help to cram or want to cram with them before the exam, tell them you are going to bed. That you have done what they are going to try to do in 6 hours, all the time from the day you registered and bought the books for the class and want to be fresh.
I’ve got plenty of money. I do not need to work. But, I tell you what. I do not hold Roquan Smith accountable for the lies he was told by the Falcons’ coach who tried to lure him to the Land of Fruit and Nuts, even though he was coming here to Atlanta. Jeff Ulbrich was from out there where they have earthquakes. And, he had already taken the job with the Atlanta Falcons as our linebackers’ coach here. I wonder how the Falcons feel about his lies that he had TURNED DOWN THE FALCONS ?
Jeff Ulbrich, you are a piece of shit.
I am so happy to have Roquan Smith here with Georgia. He is a fine man and I respect him a great deal for all this. Even more so after he refused to sign any LOI. Of course, it does not hurt that he is now a part of the greatest defensive recruiting class ever here at UGA.
Now, if we can just beat more than 3 teams out of the latest 24 games who end up higher ranked than us for the season.
The 3 wins ? We were unranked all 3. Georgie tek 2009 # 13. And, South Carolina and LSU 2013.
We need to beat the top teams when we are a top team.
We also need to cease losing to crappy football teams. Like Georgie tek did losing to us 2009, and like LSU and South Carolina did losing to us 2013.
Or, as Todd Gurley II said in the season just ended that he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre. I’m ready personally for The Junkyard Dawgs’ Defense. It will seem like Erk Russell is here again.
Stick around Jeremy Pruitt. You certainly have got our attention with your recruiting prowess sir.
We have lost too many games around here, 29 in 7 years – unheard of in my day. More than 4 a year the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era.
We lack role models to teach our youth to obey the rules and to be mature, which they are supposed to be, as I when I was in Russell Hall with my Scholarship roommate. He was not diligent. College is fun, if you are making great grades and it is not fun if you came to party hearty. Be a role model to the others around you. I rubbed-off on many in Russell Hall who are my friends today in business and personally. I am strong.
Be looked-up to not for being cool, but for being erudite. Remember the reason why you get this $ 6 million from us is to win football games. And, if you work on your education, you will have plenty of time to party later and win football games now.
There is nothing more important than winning football games, but you cannot do that if you do not obey the rules. The # 1 rule is get your education WE invested this $ 6 million in for just this small group of lucky guys. Me.
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 ?
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 ?
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.

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

(17)OG 6 Kolton Houston
(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.

Mistake from the beginning and everyone knew that. Was also a horrible influence on Isaiah Crowell. Bad element. Idiot as well. Didn’t fit in. Didn’t belong.

This arrest was for possession of drugs and for illegal window tint to cover the use of drugs.
(39)QB 8 Christian LeMay – Kicked-off high school team senior season after we gave him offer. Mark Richt never wanted this guy here or his little brother. 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 college January 2014.

(49)RB 13 Todd Gurley II – admitted sold autographs for 2 years for $3,000 unreported income, suspended for 4 games threw the entire team into turmoil, then Mark Richt after he had not played from Oct 4 to Nov 15, left him in for 29th carry to gain a 4 TD lead with a 3 TD lead already only 5 minutes remaining when Todd already was nursing a previous injury in this same game and was seen compensating for the injury he already had – also had a 100-yard kick-off return called back. 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.

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.

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.

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 :
I wrote this in direct contradiction to a blog post about this fine young man where the blog author called him a traitor 3 times. When I completed my reply, below, my comment was awaiting moderation. I waited for it to be posted, and it still is not.
That’s censorship because I disagree with the guy, who by the way when you do a search for his name on Google, does not even appear anywhere.
J J Green is a really fine player who our coaches jerked around again and again and again from position to position to position – all totally different positions. Then, we don’t even play him. As a Starting Player this 2014 season for Mark Richt, Mark Richt let him get into only 8 games, 1 as a Starter for Mark Richt. That’s just wrong for a guy Mark Richt should have appreciated more and at least let him play in all 12 games – something he routinely does with even walk-ons all the time, letting THEM play in all 12 games. Heck, Mark Richt lost to 3 far less-talented teams this season 2 of whom only won 6 games each all year and one of those who fired their coach the next week. Why can’t JJ Green, who he jerked around from position to position at HIS whim, play in all 12 this season ? Traitor ? Seems to me he was the consummate team player, and there is nothing that will ever change that view. Last season, he played in all 13 games 5 of which Mark Richt lost. Mark Richt named JJ Green Starter for HIM last year several different games. In all Mark Richt played J J Green 13 games 2 years’ ago and only 8 this season. That’s it. He is a fine athlete, a good man who never got in any trouble here, like the 15 arrested/suspended/kicked-off this 2014 year alone, and has very good grades including Honor Roll.
Handsome man with an infectious smile, it would not surprise me 1 bit to see this AJ-C Super 11player, elsewhere named the # 27 best football player over-all in the state of Georgiabe Drafted by the NFL. Here he was the recipient of the Doug and Diane Magnus Family Athletic Scholarship.
This is a black mark on Mark Richt’s name. A really nice guy, but not much of a football coach at # 20 won/lost record the latest 7 years, and most of those only wins over nobody teams. An embattled coach over just such decisions as this entire sordid story – start to now finish. The Mark Richt Apologists, nonetheless are out in force to somehow paint this up-standing young man somehow in poor light and Mark Richt, once again the good guy doing it the right way. Bullshit to that.
You cannot lose players of the caliber of this fine young man. He epitomizes everything that is right about college football, and has been one of my personal heroes for years and years here. He won NATIONAL WEEKLY AWARDS representing us, filling-in whenever and wherever Mark Richt told him. If I were his parents, I would die proud.
A freaking traitor you little dipshit ?
Piss on you.
I am sorry, but I cannot find anything to criticize JJ Green on. He played well on defense when Mark Richt turned his back on the entire secondary, and last year on offense when Mark Richt found his entire running back corps injured. As for Georgie tek, I cannot fathom not blocking his move there, as Georgie tek has done on EVERY SINGLE ATHLETE in every single sport FOREVER. JJ Green will play extremely well for Georgie tek, and is a 2-way player who comes to Georgie tek whose coach now does not even have a losing record at our house all-time. At UGA, JJ Green was a 2-year Starter for Mark Richt.
Look, we have now 73 remaining signed scholarship recruits of the 119 signed by Mark Richt who would have been playing in the bowl game for Mark Richt with a redshirt season. A bowl game only 2 other SEC teams play before us, when Mark Richt has lost 3 of his last 4 bowl games. This is our problem around here nowadays, that we lose to 3 less-talented teams this year alone, and spent the entire 2014 year in bad press with 1 arrest and suspension and kicked-off after another. Mark Richt is a very fine man, but his coaching is # 20 nationally the latest 7 years and # 5 in just The SEC. It’s a shame that we have to think up terms as supposed Bulldogs’ fans who really are just Mark Richt Apologists for a team player like JJ Green other than team player who Mark Richt just jerked-around from position to position and showed NO LOYALTY TOWARD even with all his team player proven efforts for years and years FOR Mark Richt. That he goes to Georgie tek is bad for UGA – really really bad for us, as it will be used AGAINST US in every single recruiting opportunity by Paul Johnson. There is no other way to look at this. Camden County ring a bell to anyone ? What will JJ Green say to kids from Camden County ? What will JJ Green say to anyone considering Georgie tek and Mark Richt ?
Do you want me to tell what he will be saying ?
You have the unmitigated numbnutts to post all these days later about this young man, in some weak ass effort to prop-up embattled Mark Richt ?
Rue that decision, son.
Addition by subtraction ?
Let me explain in business, when you win a sale against other competitors that you not only won the sale, but you took monies away from your competitor.
That is a double-win regarding that competitor. They would’ve made money that they do not have, and instead you have more monies.
IDIOT Mark Richt Apologists read such a statement by me, a point far and wide regarded as a smart comment by EVERYONE EVERYWHERE, and why folks come to my blog and read what I have to say – smart comments by a smart man who cares ONLY about our football program, and say huh ? Or fluff over it, too hard to comprehend the good point. 1 good point after another I make. Daily. In this case, we do (1) NOT HAVE JJ GREEN who Mark Richt named as 1 of his STARTERS for the 2 years last year and this year and (2) Georgie tek gets him for his junior and senior seasons, always the best 2 years of any player ever anywhere. He has NOT TAKEN HIS REDSHIRT SEASON YET, EITHER. As I understand this, JJ Green came in early January. So, he might have enough credits to play 2 years there under 1 rule or another. Either way, he plays at least his senior season there. I see players transfer who do not have the credit hours JJ Green accumulated here already. It’s close as to whether he gets to play his Junior year there too. I think if he continued another semester, he might. I graduated in 3 years myself from UGA, so I know he might be close, or could’ve been close. Hells, Bells, I had 239 credit hours, when you only needed 180 for BBA from UGA. I graduated from UGA in actually the time JJ Green has been here already. But, let’s call it Senior year only there he gets to play. That’s probably how that works out for him, since Dean Fluellen had to personally sign my registration every single time because of the course overload. 3.88 GPA made those quick arguments Dean Fluellen never won. I took every class under the sun, for example every single Law Course The University of Georgia teaches. Just 1 example. I took every Accounting Course UGA offered. All. I took all the business studies, wanting to learn. JJ Green in either case, does NOT certainly get to START for US his JUNIOR and SENIOR years, and that is really all I care about. What he does at Georgie tek, I do not care about and will not follow. I will not see him play except 1 game.
I am not a fan of teams who consider us their # 1 Rival.
JJ Green ?
Yes, you and I and all of us Bulldogs’ fans have ALL been fans of JJ Green.
Turning your back on him now calling him a traitor is childish and stupid, at best.
It’s going to work out for him, and does NOT work out for us losing him his junior and senior seasons.
It works out for Georgie tek in 2 different ways : (1) He plays there his senior season at least. (2) He is Camden County, a perennial hotbed of such JJ Green and Brice Ramsey players.
Brice Ramsey has been jerked around by Mark Richt too.
What does Mark Richt have to do NOW, given this, with regard to Camden County ?
Well, for 1, he has to name him quickly as Starter 2015, or Camden County will be in a huge uproar. I can tell you of the 20,000 who read my blogs, Camden County fans are included. They know, Brice Ramsey was better than dip Hutson Mason.
Jacob Park Mark Richt might have wanted to be a 4-year starter here, but now with JJ Green leaving quitting Mark Richt as so many others with only 73 of 119 signed by Mark Richt remaining now with JJ Green only the latest and certainly not the last, Mark Richt has to consider now Camden County – in addition.
Mark Richt has such issues with OTHER NOTABLE high schools through the years, where decisions had to be made in FAVOR of their players, or NO MORE ACCESS.
Either way, in this case, Camden County is NOT HAPPY.
Favoritism in reverse.
This is a double-whammy on UGA with regard to Georgie tek.
Frankly were it not for the SANCTIONED blogs by Index DawgBone, I would not have anything to say.
Maybe this guy will have the balls to put my post up there later tonight. Maybe he will not come here and read my reply. Maybe he will have the balls to come here and reply to my reply ?
All I know is he is taken to task, and I am quite certain he’s wrong for THESE REASONS HEREIN, and that I am right.
EVERY WORD, CORRECT.
Addition by Subtraction ? Hardly. Simply subtraction and just when he would’ve been in his JUNIOR YEAR for us 2015. Simply subtraction multiplied by 2 with regard to Georgie tek. Doubly bad with regard to Georgie tek. Everyone knows the best 2 years of any recruit are his JUNIOR and SENIOR seasons. JJ Green will NOT have those here, and for that, I am saddened. I liked the guy. We all liked the guy. He was a CROWD FAVORITE as we all cheered him on and spoke very highly of him. I wish nothing but the best, and am disappointed that we have yet ANOTHER attrition here with his name. I’ll guarantee you he will be a STARTER at Georgie tek, or anywhere else he goes. He will graduate with honors, and he will be contributing toward the athletic program his entire lifetime – unfortunately there too it will not be to UGA. Mark Richt messed this player up from the get-go, and deserved to have this happen to him. Mark Richt reads the words on this blog on this transfer and knows in his heart of hearts, that he did JJ Green wrongly, while giving preferential treatment to trouble makers and bad press makers who did not do whatever Mark Richt asked them to do. You get any of that ?
Mark Richt screwed-over JJ Green big-time, a team player for Mark Richt who was on the Honor Roll here and never bad press, but a fine player – who will not be playing in this 3rd tier Belk Bowl.
Damn it Mark Richt, I presume you are doing all you can do to build up Georgie tek this year. If you told me that was your goal this year Mark Richt, I would find zero evidence to refute it.
Classic Dawg GloryUGA.com calls this fine man J.J. Green who has done EVERYTHING right in his classroom off the field and on the field playing wherever Mark Richt TOLD HIM TO PLAY whether it was his best position or NOT a “Traitor” because he wants to SUPPORT Mark Richt and be in fact a Mark Richt Apologist saying Mark Richt does it the right way.
NOT with J.J. Green Classic Dawg GloryUGA.com did Mark Richt begin to do it the right way.
Now, did he ?
JJ Green a STARTER for Mark Richt 2 different seasons a STARTER for Mark Richt Mark Richt could not bothered to even put him in for 1 snap except in 8 games this lousy horrible 2014 season.
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 ?
(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
LOST Central Florida unranked AP Poll time of game
LOST unranked both polls Florida
LOST unranked both polls Colorado
LOST unranked both polls Kentucky
LOST unranked both polls vols
LOST unranked AP Poll for the season Okie State
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.
