Kirby faces 4 AP Poll Top 25 Opponents prior to The SEC Championship Game and Bowl Game – sure to be 2 more Ranked teams for Kirby while Mark Richt is NOT RANKED AT ALL AP Poll which is the way he left this place not only his final failed season but unranked AP Poll Mark Richt 4 of his last 8 years here – half the time. I look for Ohio State Ole Miss and FSU to get KNOCKED-DOWN this season. I look for Michigan to play a 2-game season and brag about its won/lost record when they only play 2 teams all season long. Good Lord CUPCAKE CITY for Michigan’s schedule of 2 teams all season. Kent State plays a better schedule than Michigan 2016 you bunch of pussies Michigan.

Auburn is # 33

North Carolina is # 22

Florida is # 25

Kirby # 18 fancy that

Ole Miss is # 11

vols # 9

In SEC Championship Game we’d face either # 1 Alabama or # 5 LSU

That would give Kirby another AP Poll Top 25 Opponent as well

Lots of ranked teams for Kirby

 

I thought this was supposed to be some pushover schedule ?

 

No, it is not.

 

As anyone can readily see.

 

6 SEC teams in the AP Poll 2016-2017 season.  Nice.

 

5 Pac-12 teams – thought they supposed to be better than The SEC ?

4 ACC teams – but NOT Mark Richt

4 Big 10 teams who have by the way 14 teams not 10 lol

4 Big XII who have by the way 10 teams not 12 lol

2 others made up of a team not from Power 5 Conferences and an independent

 

1972 is the last time the Pac-12 won the national championship in football

 

44 year drought Pac-12 national championship football now 2016-2017 season.

 

The SEC Won the national championship in football :

 

2003 LSU

2004 * Auburn was undefeated and consensus next in line since USC vacated nc game win

2006 Florida

2007 LSU

2008 Florida

2009 Alabama

2010 Auburn

2011 Alabama

2012 Alabama

2015 Alabama

Kirby faces 4 AP Poll Top 25 Opponents prior to The SEC Championship Game and Bowl Game – sure to be 2 more Ranked teams for Kirby while Mark Richt is NOT RANKED AT ALL AP Poll which is the way he left this place not only his final failed season but unranked AP Poll Mark Richt 4 of his last 8 years here – half the time.

 

Ole Miss plays FSU Alabama and Georgia in its first 4 games and Ole Miss is ranked ahead of Kirby.

 

Michigan plays 2 games all season and both basically in November Ohio State and Michigan State.  Cupcake City schedule Michigan.  A 2-game season ?  That all you got Michigan ?  Say you lose them both and win every other game all of which are CUPCAKES you’d be 11-2.  Pretty sad Michigan.

 

I look for FSU Florida State, Ole Miss and Ohio State to have a season where they get knocked down.  Not Michigan.  Michigan plays a schedule like Boise State.  Seriously 2 games you play all season and that is all you got Michigan ?

 

Kirby starts the season # 16 Coaches’ Poll and # 18 AP Poll 2016-2017 pre-season polls.

 

11-3 or 12-2 both of which would be better than Mark Richt his last 8 years of average of 4 losses a season and 9 wins average for his last 8 years here in 15 game seasons for the top teams which he was NOT.

 

Nick has 7 home games and Kirby has 6.

 

Kirby will have no problems doing something about this downturn the last 8 years of 4 losses a season average.  He will not waste the talent like Mark Richt did and will TRY to win, something else Mark Richt quit doing after 2007 – wanting to win – with his stupid mantra for 8 years of there’s something BESIDES winning that’s important here at Georgia.

 

No there isn’t.

 

8 years of deficiency, failure, inadequacy, inadequateness, insufficiency, lack, paucity, scantiness, scarceness, scarcity, shortage, undersupply, drought, meagerness, shortfall, mediocrity, losses, deprivation, and skimpy results end.

 

Long live Kirby !    Good riddance Mark Richt and his loser mentality.

 

Kent State plays a better football schedule this 2016-2017 season than Michigan.  Michigan you are a bunch of pussies.

 

 

8-22-2016

SEC set to share revenue of staggering two-thirds of a billion SEC Revenue dollars after August 31, 2016. The SEC kept 14 % of that SEC Revenue last year or $ 72 million. We are SO FAR behind other colleges and their gyms which enhance The University and all the students.

Nearly two-thirds of a billion dollars is SEC Conference revenue sharing figure for the 2015-2016 fiscal year ending August 31 and of that figure it is expected that The SEC itself will share with itself about $85 million whereas last year The SEC shared with itself $ 72 million dollars.  This makes The SEC the most valuable conference by a long wide margin.  Easily the most valuable conference.

 

The 14 member institutions of The SEC are set to receive approximately between $ 40 and $50 million dollars each in late August 2016 distribution this year.

 

The total sports’ revenue for UGA is $ 150 million 2016 fiscal year of which The SEC payments are one-third the total we get.   The total includes local media packages, the TV rights with multiple Network agreements The SEC has hammered-out, the NCAA payments of about a million per school slated for Academic Enhancements, post-season bowl games, The SEC Championship Game, College Football Play-Off Revenue, NCAA Championships’ Revenue, March Madness Revenue, The SEC Basketball Tournament Revenue, the amounts retained by each SEC member school in Bowl Games’ Revenue, the supplemental surplus distribution.  Georgia gets each year from its student fees as a Subsidy to our annual Revenue $3,200,000 per year which some schools do not collect.  Tickets and donations/fees we pay to buy tickets and marketing revenue for some of our sports make up the majority of the balance of approximately $ 100 million for fiscal year ending August 31 of 2016 upon which the between $ 40 million and $ 50 million The SEC will revenue share with Georgia 2016 fiscal year.

 

The SEC will retain what would be another $ 6 million dollars maybe per SEC member school to operate The SEC in its next check to us.

 

These are staggering sums August 31, 2016 for The University of Georgia and will drive up our Total Revenue to about $ 150 million dollars.

 

This figure of between $ 40 to $50 million dollars annually in SEC revenue-sharing monies is only one-third of the total revenue for sports at The University of Georgia.

 

This is an increase in revenue sharing of maybe 20 percent by The SEC over last year when last August 2015 The SEC distributed then the record amount of nearly half a billion dollars – staggering figure in its own rights when $ 455 million was shared with the 14 member schools of The SEC $ 527 million Revenue The SEC paid taxes on according to tax records yesterday January 17, 2016.  This would put the January 2017 SEC Revenue at at least $ 632 million.

 

The figure for August 2016 distribution includes nearly half a billion dollars from TV revenue alone for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.

 

Last year August 2015 The SEC TV revenue component was $ 350 million dollars from TV alone of the then record total shared amongst the 14 SEC member institutions of nearly half a billion total.

 

Easily the most valuable conference.  Notably the Pac-12 is lagging way behind out there in the land of fruits and nuts where nobody cares and nobody bothers about college football.

College Football FBS Division 1-A represents 85% of the total college sports revenues which ranks 3rd behind NFL and MLB revenue for sports revenues and equal to NBA revenue.

 

College Basketball both men and women represents 9% of the total college sports revenue and the remaining 6 % comes chiefly from baseball and golf.

SEC schools are in an arms race to see who can best spend such staggering sums each year – an annual annuity to fund significant capital projects to enhance their school’s competitive position in the primary sports and to distribute the wealth to all the 18 sports our 300 student-athletes compete in.

 

Each group of our 300 student-athletes annually of the University of Georgia in our 18 sports then generate in their lifetimes 2 billion dollars – most of them in something other than competing in sports professionally at $ 5 million dollars each during their lifetimes.

 

Approximately 9 % of our draft eligible football players here are drafted, but the other sports do not offer such opportunities because the revenue for those sports dwarfs in comparison to the football revenue.  The football revenue and to a far lesser degree basketball revenue must support all 18 of our sports.

 

So why is that we cannot have a new gym for them then but Ole Miss can ?

We are so far behind the other colleges with their gyms.

 

Do you even know what a gym is used for and its benefits  ?

 

It is shameful how no one discusses even our new gym.
