Mark Richt never got us a recruiting class like this. This is a fine recruiting class for Kirby only Ohio State has done better. That’s right with these wins against Alabama now we have overtaken Alabama in the recruiting rankings with Six (6) Top 100 players nationally according to Scout.com who has Alabama with only 4 Top 100 nationally so far.
Mark Richt was NOT out-recruiting Alabama. In fact Mark Richt was # 6 in just The SEC in recruiting. This far exceeds Mark Richt whom Kirby also has out-recruited even though Florida has MORE recruits by a substantial margin than does the state of Georgia.
I tried to tell you this for 8 years. Some heard me. Many finally agreed with me. Didn’t you ?
*Andrew Thomas and *Toneil Carter Jr. are BOTH Top 100 overall football players in the nation.
According to Scout.com.
So are *Robert Beal and *D’antne Demery and *Richard LeCounte and *Jake Fromm Top 100.
Top 150 overall football players in the nation are then these Six (6) Top 100 and three (3) more :
150 Top football players in the nation at any position and Kirby has commitments from 9 of them.
10 if you go to # 171 Jaden Hunter.
It is their ranking at their position nationally and their national ranking in the Top Football Players any position that best represents where these commitments are. So if you are going to discuss recruiting you must discuss this. The number of stars they get is NOWHERE as meaningful and NEVER has been.
(1) Where does he rank at his position nationally ?
(2) Where does he rank as Top Football Players in the Nation Overall ?
(3) NOT just the number of stars.
These have been proven to be the best 2 indicators. You are FAR MORE LIKELY if you are than if you are not ranked highly at your position nationally and overall in the nation.
If you don’t discuss their ranking at their position and their overall ranking nationally you may as well NOT even discuss recruiting and your expectations therefrom.
It is a cursory or remedial discussion to discuss ONLY the number of stars assigned to the player. It is a shortcut to the lazy recruiting discussion of well is he going to be any good or not to discuss ONLY the number of stars he got.
Hasty not thorough not detailed NOT BEST INDICATOR of greatness NUMBER OF STARS.
Does it take longer to lay it out like this ?
Sure it does.
That’s I in a nutshell and always has been.
If you want to be lazy and sound like you don’t know what you are talking about then say Jake Fromm is a 4-Star QB recruit.
Excuse me he is the # 39 Best Football Player in The United States of America and Alabama was certain they had him.
Doesn’t that mean a whole lot more to you than 4-Star ?
Sure it does.
Jake Fromm is the # 5 Best Quarterback in the nation.
These are the guys Mark Richt was NOT getting. He got some. We are recruiting a LOT better without him as I told you ALL ALONG for this entire last 8 years. Only you did not want to hear it. Hear it now then. He NEVER got us a class like this.
A casual superficial token analysis of the discussion of recruiting is to say he is a 4-Star QB and frankly it’s not what I EVER talk about.
If you are a 4-Star ranked # 260 at your position and # 594 in the nation overall are you the same probability of greatness as a 4-Star ranked # 5 at your position and # 39 in the nation overall ? Those who always ONLY discuss the number of stars think YOU THINK it is. Is one of these 4-Star commitments more likely to be successful than the other 4-Star ? Sure he is. So why discuss ALL 4-Stars or ALL 3-Stars for example as if they are ALL THE SAME ?
YOU said just now.
It isn’t and they should not discuss it that way if they knew what they were talking about.
Recruiting is one of my hobbies and always has been.
I love it and Kirby is KILLING IT !
Obliterating ANYTHING Mark Richt ever did.
You go back and compare any of his classes to this Kirby Class 2017.
Go ahead I dare you.
These guys are BIG. These guys are FAST. These guys are tall and long. These guys are HIGHLY RATED at their position and nationally overall.
This is our finest recruiting class EVER !
You heard THAT here from me FIRST.
Expect some exciting Commitments coming-up after the news of where Kirby is in Recruiting. At some point the national papers will be lauding what Kirby is doing as miraculous fantastic fabulous and players all over this great nation will stand-up and take notice.
Good recruiting builds good teams.
Great recruiting not only builds great teams BUT OTHER Elite Prospects WANT to JOIN-IN because Elite Prospects EXPECT to win more than no SEC Championship in an entire decade 10 years of NOT winning The SEC Championship which only twice before ever in our history have we EVER done worse.
# 45 nationally over the last 8 years beating Top 15 teams at 18 losses these 24 games.
That is what we have been doing.
Elite Prospects do NOT want to play on such a team. They do NOT have something MORE IMPORTANT THAN WINNING that they want.
They do NOT either have some other goal other than winning and NEITHER does a great coach.
Mark Richt averaged 4 losses a season his last 8 at 73-32.
A guy named DawgFaithful to this blog made a God Damn FOOL out of himself for years and years and years complaining that I should NOT criticize Mark Richt. I tried to tell him that his posts would be here for posterity and that he would rue the decision to MAKE EXCUSES for Mark Richt.
That he SUCKED after 2007.
He refused categorically to listen.
Now he is NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.
As they come back in and try to suggest that Mark Richt is the greatest ever I mark them in categories on the right.
Morons the lot of them.
Are they going to lose to 12 unranked AP or Coaches’ Polls time game or for season as Mark Richt did these latest 8 years ?
Well are they ? According to some today nearly 8 months later now Mark Richt was the best ever. But he NEVER will and NEVER did convince a recruiting class like this. They did NOT want to play for him and I did not want him as my coach any longer after loving the guy 2001-2007. You hold that against me if you want but you were WRONG THEN and wrong now. I knew what I was talking about when I told you we would recruit BETTER without Mark Richt and I know what I am talking about now. Don’t I ? Go ahead you can ADMIT it that you were wrong to say that I did not have the right to criticize Mark Richt for these last 8 years and that I was NOT as good a Bulldogs’ Fan because I did.
I wanted him OUT OF HERE.
I was RIGHT.
Wasn’t I ?
We ALL know.
You can say it.
Thomas Brown I apologize. You were RIGHT all along.
Are these guys going to win 54 % of their games against teams that season who play in one of the 41 bowls as Mark Richt did the latest 8 years here # 45 in the nation at that ?
Kirby goes out-of-state again to steal the Commitment over in Texas of 5′ 11″ 190 lbs. Houston Toneil Carter Jr. with Nike 4.47 in 40-yard dash the # 8 best running back in the nation wanted dearly by Alabama, LSU, Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Miss State, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, TCU, vols, Notre Dame and Michigan.
Also Sam Pittman gets Kirby ANOTHER huge Offensive Tackle Andrew Thomas the # 11 OT in the nation from Pace Academy Atlanta at 6′ 5″ and 318 lbs. the # 1 OT in the state of Georgia who attended camp at Alabama who thought they had him also highly sought after by Florida, Michigan, Miami of Florida Mark Richt, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, vols, and Southern Cal.
THIS BIG NEWS propels Georgia to # 2 best recruiting class in the nation with Six (6) Top 100 overall players nationally so far adding these 2 an average rank of 3.87 and now 13 of the Top 25 players in the nation at their position according to Scout.com the premier recruiting service and has been.
Kirby is trying to change the culture that there’s something more important than winning that Mark Richt kept bragging about. No there is NOT. Not to THESE GUYS. Maybe to Mark Richt’s Commitments his Recruits but too many of them got arrested suspended kicked-off and he had to fill his roster out from down to one point of only 67 Scholarship Recruits he signed who were still here for the Charlotte Bowl Game out of 118 he signed who could have been with a redshirt playing in that game and were NOT. 67.
Mark Richt’s Commitments – Mark Richt’s Recruits – to Georgia have been arrested 8 times after Kirby took over now today July 11 2016. 8
Kirby has yet to have one of his Commitments – Kirby’s Recruits – to have been arrested since he took over.
You are witnessing quite a significant change in the CULTURE here at Georgia.
Yes Mark Richt might have LOST his obligatory games to Georgie tek yellowjackets Auburn Missouri Vandie Clemson Nebraska Alabama Boise State LSU Michigan State Arky Mississippi State Colorado Kentucky Oklahoma State and Central Florida every season when he was supposed to win those games.
But his real bugaboo was he was # 45 at beating top 15 teams after 2007.
He wet the bed against the top 15 teams his last entire 8 years here losing 18 of 24.
Our games which matter the most
North Carolina Ole Miss vols and Florida are the 4 games that matter the most for Kirby therefore.
If we have hired a coach who is going to lose to the likes of the 12 games Mark Richt LOST to unranked teams after 2007 his last 8 years here we have a HUGE BIG PROBLEM.
The same huge big problem we’ve had for 8 excruciating years.
But we’ve got to do better against the top teams we play.
No longer is it acceptable to say oh don’t fret we can lose to Florida and still win The SEC East.
That was bullshit when you said it then and it is bullshit to ponder now.
Oh we got a moral victory by coming back from 0-31 at half-time and do better the 2nd half.
Oh we should not have spiked the ball and were 12 yards away from a national championship.
Oh we did it the RIGHT WAY HERE so who cares during Mark Richt’s tenure Alabama won 4 national championships LSU 2 Auburn I say 2 Ohio State 2 Miami of Florida 1 Florida State 1 Texas 1 and Florida 2 ?
We care that is whom it is it matters to.
Our goal is NOT that there’s something besides winning that’s important here.
You want to DO WELL here at UGA 2016 Kirby ?
DO SOMETHING against North Carolina Ole Miss vols and Florida 2016 Kirby.
Mark Richt would NOT HAVE Kirby.
Kirby was 1st Team All-State as a recruit AAAA Bainbridge High and brain then 1st Team All-SEC Georgia Captain our Football Team along with all 4 years SEC Academic Honor Roll AND Academic All-America unlike Mark Richt so Kirby KNOWS THIS.
High time some of the rest of you learned it.
You are not going to go 12-2 or 11-3 and set these 4 games to the side North Carolina Ole Miss vols and Florida.
As to the bullshit yesterday that Mark Richt did NOT lose to unranked teams he lost to 12 teams UNRANKED AP or Coaches’ Poll time of game or for the season after 2007 his last 8 years here for which the son of a bitch was FIRED summarily :
12 losses after 2007 to unranked teams :
2009 Okie State not ranked AP Poll season
2009 vols not ranked any poll ever 19-45 lost
2009 Kentucky not ranked any poll ever lost at Sanford Home game
2010 Colorado not ranked any poll ever
2010 Florida not ranked any poll ever
2010 Central Florida UCF not ranked AP Poll time of game
2013 Missouri not ranked Coaches’ Poll time of game
2013 Vandie not ranked in both Coaches’ Polls and AP Poll time of game
2013 Nebraska not ranked AP Poll for year & not ranked either poll time of game
2014 South Carolina not ranked either AP or Coaches’ Polls for the year
2014 Florida not ranked any poll ever yet blown-out 20-38
2015 vols not ranked either poll time of game at all 2-3 team 31-38
Noon today Lady Diamond Dawgs Women’s College World Series ESPN main channel 846.
I believe AJ Turman is a quality running back, too – like he does.
“I just didn’t get the opportunity that I thought I should have gotten.”
I agree. He was NEEDED in the rotation in both 2015 and 2014 too.
” We always were told if we don’t feel at home at the University of Georgia we could leave.”
“I just didn’t get the opportunity that I thought I should have gotten.”
AJ Turman scored 2 TD each in 2 different G-Day Games and was never given a single carry in any game, meaningful game or not – not 1 single carry while the dumbass coach also did not give Keith Marshall the opportunity he felt he should have gotten either. Mark Richt made ALL the calls as to who did and did not play, and he was the only offensive coordinator who designed the plays and decided upon which plays he would run every single season the lousy coach was here. This was HIS DECISION ONLY that AJ Turman NEVER got a single solitary carry in 3 years’ time here.
4-Star AJ Turman was recruited by Mark Richt 2013 yet he got not 1 single snap 2013, 2014, and after 2015 when he as well never got 1 single freaking snap again all season long, he bolted.
There is no reason to restrict him from going to Miami of Florida because God Damn it the last friqin’ place he would transfer to would be back into that shit-ass’ program AGAIN.
Criminal the way he squandered the talent he had. I do not need to remind you that he KNEW he did not have the running backs’ rotation that he wanted 2015 or 2014.
And, you wimp ass mothers out there wanted that son of a bitch to be back here coaching again now whining again today that you found it a conspiracy that Mark Richt was fired.
Stick it up your assholes, all of you bullshit artists. I am not interested in hearing your bullshit to the contrary – well, honestly I really am for it gives me something to blog about.
So thanks for that.
4-Star AJ Turman had scholarship OFFERS from Florida State, Notre Dame, yes Miami of Florida, vols, Wisconsin other ACC schools, other SEC Schools and teams and coaches across this nation.
Mark Richt could not get out of his own way with all his attrition; this just one more – when after 3 years here he had not been given 1 single snap. Well he scored 2 TD each in 2 Different G-Day Games but never in a game.
4-Star AJ Turman was the # 19 best running back in the nation in 2013 and yet with all our desperate needs at running back 2015 and 2014, Mark Richt never played the man God Damn it – never gave him a single carry and ALL THAT having scored 2 TD each in 2 different G-Day Games.
This is EXACTLY why I FIRED Mark Richt right here on this very blog.
(1) Who is Georgia – what have we accomplished – why have expectations?
(2) Who is Mark Richt – what has he really done after 2007 ?
Why did Georgia Bulldog coach Mark Richt quit ?
He did NOT quit. He was FIRED.
This blog for 8 long years told you why he had to and guaranteed that he WOULD QUIT. In fact, this blog ALSO stated the date he would quit – right after the Georgie tek game 2015 where he looked like crap AGAIN !
He was given no choice. We had offered the job to Coach Kirby Smart and Mark Richt was being fired for averaging 4 LOSSES a season for 8 years now. After 2007.
He also was # 40 in Win Percentage vs the Top 15 after 2007. For # 11 All-Time Wins’ UGA.
Run out of town on a rail.
Who are we ? What have we accomplished ? Why should we expect more than averaging 4 losses per season over the most-recent 8-year period ?
Sports Illustrated Zac Ellis :
” I used to consider Texas the best job in the country, but now I think it’s Georgia, followed by Ohio State. Why Georgia? My top criterion is access to players relative to competitors, and Georgia is in a really enviable position. In the past five recruiting classes, an average of 113.6 high-schoolers from the state of Georgia have signed with Power Five schools each year. (Note that we’re talking Power Five, not all of the FBS.) That number is third behind Texas (179.4) and Florida (164.4) and ahead of California (100.4). The competition between state schools in those states is far more intense than it is in Georgia. With Georgia Tech running the option, the schools aren’t really going head-to-head on offensive players because of different needs, and Georgia is the bigger brand name. It’s also in the conference that more recruits consider desirable. In Georgia, they grow up wanting to be Bulldogs. The state of Ohio produced 64.6 Power Five signees a year over that same five-year period.”
“Do Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Tennessee, South Carolina and others come in and poach Georgia talent? Absolutely. But there’s such an abundance of it in the state that Georgia can afford to lose a few top in-state targets and still field a team capable of competing for SEC and national titles. Alabama and Auburn have to invade Georgia. During that five-year period, their state produced 36.4 Power Five signees a year. People talk about LSU’s monopoly in its state, but the numbers between Louisiana and Georgia aren’t even close. Louisiana’s average number of Power Five signees during that span was 38.6 a year.”
“Add to this great facilities (now that the Bulldogs are building an indoor), great tradition…possibly the best college town in America and the fact that they play in the easier division of the nation’s deepest conference. That’s the recipe for a great job that just about every coach in America would crawl over broken glass to take.”
“I know no school president or athletic director will ever say it out loud, but coaches almost always get fired because of their win-loss record—not because they didn’t mold enough men.”
ESPN Alex Scarborough: “Let’s be clear, they’re both great jobs. If LSU and Georgia are open, the line of candidates will stretch as far as the eye can see. But for me, the question of which job is more appealing is easy. It’s Georgia, and I don’t think it’s close. The support is there from fans and administration. You’re recruiting in a state that produces the most SEC players of any in the country. And you don’t have to bother with the West.”
ESPN Edward Aschoff: “To me, Georgia would be the better job. It’s in the heart of one of the Southeast’s most fertile recruiting grounds. Atlanta is right down the road, and the facilities are only getting better. It’s also in the East, which has barely registered a pulse recently, so any rebuilding project shouldn’t take too long. And you don’t have to play Alabama every year. But don’t get it twisted, LSU is a great job. Louisiana doesn’t have the talent pool that Georgia has on a continuous basis, but you can pluck plenty of elite-level prospects out of your backyard However, you have to compete in the SEC West !”
10-Win Seasons before Mark Richt – twelve (12) but those are ALL 80% win % or more.
Winning Percentage Season of 80 % or better before Mark Richt
22 Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Seasons before Mark Richt of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher
4 Mark Richt Seasons of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher
26 Seasons of 80 % Win Percentage or Higher of which Mark Richt has 4 – eleven NOT.
These then are Mark Richt’s Best 4 Seasons :
2002 when he lost to Florida unranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25 even with their win over us when he went 0-13 on 3rd Down Conversions relegating him to play 5-loss unranked Arky SEC Championship Game and 5-loss FSU # 23 in the bowl game nobody cared about and nobody watched.
2004 when he lost to a hapless Phillip Fulmer vols’ team who should have lost 4 games that 2004 season and he got blown-out by Auburn by 3 TD without extra points 6-24; therefore he did not even get to play for The SEC Championship. For this, he played in the Outback Bowl nobody watched and nobody cared about at 11 am.
2007 when he lost to 6-6 South Carolina who did not even play in a bowl game. And, he lost – blown-out by the vols 14-35 by 3 TD. The vols should’ve been a 5-loss team. For these performances, he was awarded the booby prize of beating # 19 Hawai’i in the bowl game nobody watched and nobody cared about.
2012 when he lost – blown-out by South Carolina 7-35. A 4 TD beat-down. And, then he 3 times in front of me told Aaron Murray No, No, No, do not spike it – that Mark Richt said he was certain that Nick Saban would not expect an Aaron Murray pass, which was batted down at the line of scrimmage with all receivers covered. For these performances he was awarded 4-loss Nebraska # 25 AP Poll in the CapitalOne Bowl which nobody watched and nobody cared about.
Note please, that of these 4 best Mark Richt seasons only 2012 is after 2007 and that year he had 2 really really really bad coaching decisions – not preparing the team to be ready-to-play against South Carolina beat by more than 3 TD for 7 times after 2007 and this 1 of them ! And, then his disagreement 3 times with Aaron Murray that Aaron Murray wanted to spike it and Mark Richt 3 times over-ruled Aaron Murray when Aaron Murray CLEARLY DECISIVELY was correct and Mark Richt just wrong.
These are his 4 “best” seasons and the bowl games he earned for us compared to the 15 Bowl Games on the National Stage by The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program, many of which we Won and 6 of those named # 1 by this poll or that poll.
“Athens is an all time great college town, and its women can be put up against anyone’s and come out looking good. People who go to college in the northeast really have no idea what they are missing when it comes to the ladies.”

Notable 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 ?
Georgia beat # 21 Louisville who won at Notre Dame who beat LSU Music City Bowl
Florida beat East Carolina who beat Virginia Tech when they were # 17
South Carolina beat supposedly rebuilt Miami of Florida leaving ACC 4-7 in bowl games
Missouri beat Big 10 Minnesota in the re-named Citrus bowl
Tennessee beat Iowa who lost by 2 points to Wisconsin 24-26 who beat Auburn Outback Bowl by 3
5-0 SEC East Bowl Games this season
The only conference who won more bowl games than The SEC East alone was the Pac-12 who has 6 bowl wins this season, and they had 2 losses !
Ole Miss got blown-out in Peach Bowl by 5 TD and 2 FG
Alabama defense blistered for 42 points in Sugar Bowl by team 12 previous bowls vs SEC never won
Miss St lost by 15 to Georgie tek in Orange Bowl for their 1st Major Bowl win after 1955
LSU lost to Notre Dame who still even after the win does not have a winning bowl record, even.
Auburn lost to Wisconsin in Music City bowl.
2-5 SEC West in Bowl games this season.
Only Texas A&M and Arkansas of SEC West even won their bowl games, while Georgia and Missouri beat Arkansas and while Missouri beat Texas A&M as well.
The mystique of the SEC West is shattered. In fact, they have collectively shamed the entire SEC with their bowl performances this season, now over.
The SEC’s 7 Bowl Wins this season tops all conferences, thanks to The SEC East !
Hell, Ohio State had played 12 Bowl Games against SEC teams and never won even once, before beating Alabama scoring 42 points on Nick Saban.
Notre Dame does not even have a winning bowl record, even after beating LSU.
Nice job SEC West.
Instead of trying to tell us all how great you all are before you even play each other, how about winning other than over yourselves !
Bring on Alabama 2015 ! Lame Kitten’s play calling was horrendous and childish against Ohio State and their defense was lackluster. Alabama does not have any more talent on their team than we have.
We have South Carolina at our house game 3 in 2015, then 2 games later welcome Alabama back to Sanford as well. Then, we have the vols up there, followed directly by inviting Missouri back here. Then, we have an open date, then Florida. 2 games after that, we go to Auburn where we more likely than not win. And, then we have Georgia Southern University who was snubbed from a bowl game 2014 when they damn sure earned one, and then Georgie tek who has a QB, don’t they ? We play them at Bobby Dodd Stadium 2015, where we own them – their stinking old stadium named for a college drop-out from the University of Tennessee at ObKnoxiousville.
We start-off with 2 easy games against cupcakes 2015, so we can have as many suspensions again this off-season as the guys want.
Have at it.
The coaching staff is all given raises and extensions for losing to 2 unranked teams and a 3rd team whose average recruiting rank is # 52 and their coach now does not even have a losing record at Sanford. Good thing we play them there !
Only 2 SEC teams played bowl games on days’ before us this season.
Our bowl record is 2-3 over the latest 5-year period.
We have 10 losses to unranked teams after 2007.
We have had 9 seasons of 14 with 10 wins or more, but only half of the last 6 years !
It would seem prudent to me to give raises and extensions to coaches when they are doing well. You send mixed messages of what is acceptable to extend their contracts and give them raises to great fanfare when in fact after 2007,, we have won 2 games and lost 1 for 7 entire seasons – a paltry 67 % win percentage when Mark Richt had an 81 % win percentage back when he was calling play calls for us as our Offensive Coordinator – which is what he told us he would do when Vince Dooley hired him December 20, 2000.
So, we usher in a New Year, and Happy New Year to all, while we spend our off-season bragging on our recruiting. The only problem with that is that one we will end up the # 8 ranked class 2015. And two, talent here has never been an issue. Our issues are two-fold : First losing to lackluster unranked teams and Second losing to the top teams – none of whom did we play 2014. We do this because of our roster mismanagement we’ve practiced every year !
2015 is a far more challenging schedule. We lose only 1 of the OL starters. We need a slew of players on defense. We are way short of scholarship recruits, again. We do not play starters on our special teams as we see all these top teams doing, who by the way over 100 of them now have a Special Teams’ Coach, which we do not have. Brice Ramsey is concerned for his job and Jacob Park has kept quiet. Faton Bauta has done everything asked of him, and more; but, could obviously play lots of positions for us – unlike the other 2 pocket passers.
We return our running backs, except for Todd Gurley II – when he was not on the field here more often than he was.
Here in this state where only 3 other states have more high school recruits who go on to the NFL, our fortune cookie for 2015 reads the same as it has all the previous 14 seasons.
We tell the coaches they are doing great.
We recruit well.
We still lose to less-talented teams.
We fail to beat the top teams.
We have been doing this for 7 seasons in a row now.
8th season in a row, shall be, no different.
Did I mention the off-season shall be marred by arrests/suspensions/kicked-off and that we completed 2014 with 16 such.
Maybe I did.
Maybe I stated clearly that Mark Richt not calling the plays and the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off have directly led to our demise 7 seasons in a row – 2014 included.
Now, give them all raises and extensions. Tell them how great they are with 9 of 14 seasons 10-win seasons in what is now 15-game seasons for the top teams of which we have not been and are not now either, and disregard that half the latest half a dozen seasons have seen us NOT make even 10-wins.
It’s sad for what passes for great around here. SEC West included.
29 losses latest current 7 years for Mark Richt including 10 to unranked teams, a lousy record away from Sanford, horrible record against top 25 teams even and anemic record against top 10 – but, boy do we have talent – all wasted.

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

They covered it all up in-house, but did kick all 3 off the team for it. Later, at Auburn, Nick Marshall was arrested. 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.

(48)CB 11 Sheldon Dawson – violation of team rules, suspended, then after all that bad attitude arguing coaches who to play and what plays to run, rumored transferring to Memphis
(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.

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

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

This 2015 Recruiting Class, Darnell Salomon is arrested felony burglary on recruiting invite here July 23, 2014. The beat goes on, and the losses therewith.
This 2015 Recruiting Class will end up the # 8 in the nation, which is what Mark Richt averages 2001-2014.
But, is it really ?
Isn’t Mark Richt really with only 73 of these 119 remaining to play in the bowl game all he has left of the 119 he signed who with a redshirt year would be playing, just double-dipping himself ? Isn’t he just replacing those who are arrested/suspended/kicked-off ? Isn’t that really what we do and have been doing after 2007 here, while we lose as a result ? While our dumbass head coach tells us that we have something more important than winning we do here at Georgia.
We do ?
Yeah, replace all the arrested/suspended/kicked-off. It’s a full-time job by itself, never mind the dumbass coach thinks his calling is not to be head coach UGA but preacher man.
What will we do next year ?
It will not be one damn bit different, at all. Will it ? Come on now, you can say it !
Based on what we’ve seen after 2007, Mark Richt will lose inexplicable losses to despicably lousy not nearly as talented teams, and not be competitive with the very top teams either, oh, and we will have a year 2015 with bad press of arrests/suspensions/kicked-off and more lies about all of this.
Drink the Kool-Aid. This guy has become one bad coach on and off the field, hasn’t he after 2007 ?
The 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era 2008-2014. What he did do 2001-2007 was so long ago, it’s not relevant any more :
2001 Miami won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Larry Coker 1st year as head coach.
2002 Ohio State won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Jim Tressel 2nd year as head coach. This while Mark Richt went 0-13 on 3rd Down vs unranked final AP Poll Florida and lost to that lousy team.
2003 LSU won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 4th year as head coach.
2004 Auburn* won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Tommy Tuberville in his 5th year as head coach.
2005 Texas won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Mack Brown in his 8th year as head coach.
2006 Florida won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Urban Meyer in his 2nd year as head coach.
2007 LSU won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Les Miles in his 3rd year as head coach. This while Mark Richt lost not only to lousy vols team in a blow-out by 3 TD, but also lost to 6-6 South Carolina who did not even go to a bowl game. There is no way Mark Richt deserved to play for the NC compared to LSU who beat 7 ranked teams. No sir.
2008 Florida won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Urban Meyer in his 4th year as head coach.
2009 Alabama won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 3rd year as head coach.
2010 Alabama won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 4th year as head coach.
2011 Auburn won a 2nd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Gene Chizik in his 3rd year as head coach behind Cam Newton Heisman Trophy QB now NFL fame, who dumbass Mark Richt recruited as a damned Tight End and told Cam so. Cam Newton was no more arrested at Florida for stealing a lap top and throwing it out a dorm window into a dumpster than Nick Marshall was arrested stealing over $ 500 cash from the locker room because our Chief of Police here was interviewed and he said NO ONE CALLED THE POLICE on Nick Marshall et all, even though it was a felony.
2012 Alabama won a 3rd national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Nick Saban in his 5th year as head coach.
2013 Florida State won a national championship in the Mark Richt era here, Jimbo Fisher in his 4th year as head coach.
Alabama 7th year of their head coach, Oregon Mark Helfrich in his 2nd year as head coach, FSU 5th year of their head coach, or Ohio State Urban Meyer in his 3rd year as their head coach will win 2014 national championship.
Mark Richt era 2001-2014, fourteen seasons, average number of years it took this century for a coach to win national championship is 3 years.
48 divided by 13 years is 3.69 years it took all the teams of this century to win a nc with a new head coach. We’ve had ours 15 years next year. Time is up ? No improvement ? In fact, all the same mistakes all 15 years ? Losses all 14 seasons to-date against less-talented worse ranked teams, inexplicable losses all 14 years for Mark Richt ? Yes.
“He is a wonderful guy. He’s a good Christian guy. He wants to be a missionary, goes on mission trips. That’s a wonderful thing. But do you know the religion of Nick Saban? Gus Malzahn? Or Chip Kelly, playing for the national championship? I don’t think we care what their religion is. That’s their business. But we hire them to be football coaches. If we are going to hire a religious instructor, let’s go to the Candler School of Theology…and get some of their people to come coach our football team.” College and Pro Hall of Fame Fran Tarkenton. “I think Greg McGarity has got to look at this awfully hard. I think the signs are that we have a program that’s in big trouble.” Dawgbone Index does not give you URL Links to Fran Tarkenton’s WebPages anymore. Want to know why ? “We either didn’t choose right or we didn’t coach right, because we didn’t have success,” Fran tells us. Better to drink the Kool-Aid of the one-sided purposeful censorship of Fran Tarkenton by Dawgbone Index, like that is the only source of Bulldogs’ News. Hardly, in fact, I use it only to find bullshit from the bullshit crew to lambaste from pillar to post.
Because I sure as Hell am not happy with this damned program right now, on or off the field.
It’s coaching. We have plenty of talent. Talent everyone else recruited as well, only when they come here they are given mixed messages contradictory to winning and having a team morale that is ready to play every week and wants to play to their best that EVERY game. In fact, Mark Richt tells our players, all of them, exactly the opposite of that, that no matter what they do or ever will do, he LOVES them. How in the Hell does that teach them to obey, Pray Tell dumbass ?
I’m the only 1 ? Fran Tarkenton is the only 1 ? Have you read what Todd Gurley II said about how mediocre we are and how sick and tired he is of it ? It’s bullshit what’s going on, and I am calling you out Mark Richt. Get with the program or hit the highway, and I hold no hope with your Stubborn disposition that there is any way in Hell that you can all of sudden get with it. You’re not capable of it. Your goals are those of a preacher man. I love preachers, but I have yet to see a preacher coach a major college football program. Ever.
There’s something here at Georgia that is MORE IMPORTANT THAN WINNING, you bragged 2 weeks’ ago Mark Richt. Ah, shucks Mark, what is it ? I give up ?
Does this look like this is a problem here ? Well, does it ? Here is the summary on this page alone, players who with a redshirt year would be playing in this 3rd tier bowl game December 30 with only 2 SEC teams playing before us this entire bowl season :
5 Failed to Qualify
12 Suspended, some up to 3 times.
2 Bad Attitude
1 Questionable Medical Disqualification for kid with nothing but drug problems & brother
23 Quit or Transferred
15 Arrested, again, some multiple times
2 Injured after offer, ended-up Medical Disqualification
4 Medical Disqualification
Note some made multiple categories here, lighting up all the bells and whistles – such as Arrested/Suspended/Kicked-Off or Suspended/Transferred – therefore, since these are not mutually exclusive categories, there were not 80 who had one or more of these categories checked-off; but by God Above there are 80 in these categories – sometimes checking-off multiple categories. URL Links are provided to each. Macon.com ran a similar study a few years’ ago for Georgia, and it was not a pretty sight either.
Think we have no problem here ? That would be impossible to pass-off on anyone, wouldn’t it ? I knew it was this bad before I started, living each of these Mark Richt incidents, and just be glad that I did not give the details of all these losses here and the reason I did not is because I have already covered that detail on this blog for you with URL Link too, but I will leave you with that URL Link again here now to close because who we’ve lost to is clearly very very bad :
Lost to 6 teams who were not ranked for the year they beat us in either the AP or Coaches’ Final Polls, even with their win over us – unranked either poll :
2009 LOST vols a 6-Loss team 19-45, unranked either poll for season
2009 LOST Ky 6-Loss team home 27-34, unranked either poll season
2010 LOST Colorado 5-7 by 27-29 unranked either poll season fired coach
2010 LOST Florida 5-Loss team 31-34, unranked either poll season coach quit
2014 LOST 6-6 South Carolina, unranked either poll for the season
2014 LOST 6-5 Florida, unranked either poll for season, fired coach
In addition to losing to these 6 who were not ranked in either Final AP or Coaches’ Polls :
LOST Okie State 2009 who was NOT RANKED Final AP Poll even with win
LOST Central Florida 2010 who was NOT RANKED time of game AP Poll
LOST Vandie 2013 who was NOT RANKED either poll time of game coach quit
LOST Nebraska 2013 not ranked either poll time of game not ranked Final AP fired coach
In Total after 2007 – the 2nd half of the Mark Richt era – he has LOST to 10 teams who :
(1) either did not make the final polls for the season or
(2) were unranked at time of game when they beat him or
(3) even with win over Mark Richt did not make the Final AP Poll Top 25
LOST 10 games he SHOULD’VE NEVER LOST in 7-year period to teams far less talented who were LOUSY TEAMS, inexplicable losses.
God Almighty – that’s all I’ve got to say.
God Almighty damn !
Obsequious Georgia Bulldog Fans (really just Mark Richt Apologists) just make Mark Richt’s job a cushy damn job, don’t they ? Why do we settle for this shit ? Why do we allow these Obsequious Fans to NOT ALLOW us to discuss religion when discussing Mark Richt ? What the friq’ is that all about, when that is exactly what is wrong with the coach Mark Richt – not the man – the damn coach. All of his problems on and OFF the field, are ALL related to his religious bullshit. Nothing else. Just his religious hang-ups. They contradict and counter-mind what his goals here are. On lax discipline, religious zealots always are wimpy about teaching even their own kids to obey the rules; they believe that they are forgiven – therefore, they do not concern themselves when their children do not obey – shit, they tell their own kids when their own kids do exactly that which they do not want them to do that’s it’s ok – they LOVE them anyway. What total abject hogwash approach to teaching them to obey the rules is that ? It sends really not even a mixed message, but sends a conflicting message directly diametrically opposed message to the message they really wanted to send on obeying the damn rules.
Mark Richt is FORGIVEN for all this crap going on on and off the field for us the latest 7 years here ?
The friqin’ Hell he is.
He has 2 masters. Really, everyone knows Mark Richt only has 1 master : Jesus Christ. Nothing else. Never has been anything else. We cannot discuss this ? Excuse the Hell out of me, we cannot discuss this. We sure as Hell can discuss this. Mark Richt does not care about winning – that much is patently obvious not only from his own direct quotes such as there is something more important than winning here that we adhere to here at Georgia. The freaking HELL there is ! When he should be preparing the team to GATA against our # 1 Rival Florida, he spends his time praying to Jesus Christ, and really doesn’t give a shit if we win or lose which is why he’s 5-9 against Florida. This is the whole entire problem with our football team right now that there is NO SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, and that Mark Richt can hold dear as more important than winning, something HIGHER he claims as our $ 3.5 million annually head coach. We do not pay him $ 4 million of my hard earned monies to have some other more important than winning here, objective. If he wants to be a damned preacher, have the friqin’ damn Church pay him $ 4 million a year, and we will go find another “COACH” who can do better than the results provided to you with URL Link by me here on this blog post. I am fed-up with the holier than thou friqin’ Christians telling us all what we CAN and CANNOT discuss about Mark Richt. He’s flawed and its sole cause is his Religion. He’s out of balance. His calling is NOT PREACHER. His calling is COACH of Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Team – there is NOTHING that should interfere with that ! NOTHING. He wants to go to Church on Sunday ? Fine, I do too. But, I damn sure don’t sit there feeling FORGIVEN that in my calling, I always admit AFTER another INEXPLICABLE LOSS that well, I was thinking about something else on the sidelines and screwed-up, AGAIN. He doesn’t think about football; he thinks about Jesus Christ. Get the picture, get it right in your mind, that to discuss Mark Richt without discussing his religion is something the religious zealots who want to control what you TALK ABOUT and what you THINK ABOUT our football team, will not allow you to talk about. When anyone anywhere anytime tells you what you CANNOT discuss, ask yourself if you intend to SUPPORT such a site ? I’m not stupid, not with a 3.88 GPA at UGA. This is the whole underlying uncontested topic that must be discussed. Am I getting through to ANY of you, or you intend to be told what you can and cannot discuss by someone who obviously does not want THIS DISCUSSION RIGHT HERE ?
Are you friqin’ tired yet of being told what you can and cannot say about our football program ?
Especially when that very topic is EXACTLY the ONLY PROBLEM we have on and off the field ?
Excuse me ? I cannot talk about this ?
Forget you then, for I will be damned if I will not discuss this exact specific topic any damn way I want.
Mark Richt is not our college football coach at The University of Georgia – this is NOT his calling here. He has a different calling. He only uses his position and monies from this subservient lesser importance not primary job in life for him, to further his more important to him goals – all of which are completely in contradiction to winning football games and teaching his recruits to obey the rules on and off the field.
This is why EVERYTHING on this page has happened to our football team.
Therefore the religious zealots tell you you cannot discuss religion on topics online about UGA football and Mark Richt. You have to mind your words about the dumbass decisions Mark Richt has made, because those decisions were not made with winning in football here as their objective.
You better think about this, talk about this, get this out in the open, if you intend to do more in talking about Georgia Bulldogs’ Football under Mark Richt than to be told that which you cannot discuss for obvious reasons.
What in the hell has happened to us the last 7 years ?
Strength of Schedule in Football shows, in fact, that we have played the # 42 Strength of Schedule 2014 to-date, according to the Official NCAA SoS and now we play Georgie tek # 46 SoS in 3 days’ time.
Looking at the schedule pre-season I figured South Carolina and Florida would be better than 6-win teams 2014. I figured Georgie tek’s SoS was worse than our own and it is.
Every year, there are other SoS listings updated through the latest games like the Official NCAA Toughest Schedules’ Rankings. NCAA always has their own Official NCAA SoS for you as well.
Other observations from the Official NCAA SoS is that Florida State has played the # 51 SoS 2014. Duh. For the whole entire season, only 53-47 is the combined won/lost record of all 2014 opponents for FSU. That includes Florida’s 6-win season and does not include the ACC CHUMPionship Game yet, but it will for the Play-Off Selection Committee prior to their decisions. They told us they will weigh this.
Florida’s SoS is # 48 and only a 6-win season. Horrible showing, right ?
Southern California’s SoS is only # 53 and they have another 4-Loss Season.
Southern California has the Most NFL Draft Picks in the Mark Richt Era 2001-2014 and Mark Richt is 2nd best nationally. He also is 2nd best nationally in average recruiting rankings 2001-2014 with his average # 9 while Georgie tek averages # 52.
It shows that Hutson Mason has 1825 Passing Yards on the season for 11 games, losing like last year to unranked Nebraska, losing this year to unranked 6-win South Carolina and losing to unranked 6-win Florida who fired their coach the week after he beat Mark Richt to drop Mark Richt’s record against our # 1 Rival to 5-9. Hard to feel good about yourself with a losing record that poor against your # 1 Rival.
Is there any question that Florida is a bigger Rival for us than Georgie tek is for us ?
Now, Georgie tek does consider us their # 1 Rival by a long wide margin with no other Rival at all. We’re the only team mentioned in their Fight Song, which is the Most Famous Fight song, nationally – maybe Internationally.
It promotes Poor Sportsmanship among the fan base at Georgie tek.
You have seen this all week on every blog.
Every blog where, like here, everyone’s posts are posted. We had one run on to this blog and brag they’d beat us 55-7.
He based this upon Florida’s rushing total against us 3 weeks’ ago.
He does not take into account they did well early only to have Hutson Mason again not stretch the field and failed to answer anything, sending the defense right back out there to bail his ass out to the tune of 31 unanswered points.
Unanswered points means that our offense failed to answer.
That’s what that means.
Last season, Hutson Mason did not lead the come-back against Georgie tek. In fact, he had another performance which could’ve lost us another game with him as our Starting Quarterback losing to yet another unranked team. It was Todd Gurley II who scored all the consecutive points against Georgie tek. They got off to a big lead and then Todd Gurley II put us on his back.
The score was nothing to 20 for Georgia tek with 35 seconds remaining in the 1st Half last year because Hutson Mason forgot to show-up. He does that. He is not like little Aaron Murray who called his own number 51 percent of the total plays. He is not like little Aaron Murray who had 10 percent of his plays result in interceptions, fumbles and sacks – all at the very worst moment, either. Hutson Mason suffers from trying to minimize those MISTAKES by not being like that, and a direct result, has only 1825 Passing Yards on the season.
Ray Goff and Jim Donnan all averaged more Passing than Hutson Mason has.
For the team, including the damn few plays either Brice Ramsey or Faton Bauta have been allowed to even play in the games Hutson Mason has started and played every minute of – not preparing a Quarterback for 2015 – since 2014 is shot to hell in a hand basket with the losses to 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina 2014 already. For the team now 2014, Mark Richt’s chosen quarterbacks & including Todd Gurley II’s longest pass play of the 2014 season for us, have thrown for a grand total of 2,205 yards only. This on top of his performance against Nebraska 2013 season, he also lost to an unranked team.
2,205 yards passing 2014 for UGA. Who would’ve thunk it ?
We could’ve taken advantage of our talent and especially at running back by throwing the football downfield, and stretching the field in so doing 2014. Never in the history of man, has there ever been a more wasted season on that front for us this season.
1825 yards passing is all Hutson Mason has to show for 2014.
Other than his
Todd Gurley II, you recall led the comeback against Georgie tek, falling behind 20 to nothing, scoring 4 Touchdowns against Georgie tek, including having the ball on every single play of BOTH OVERTIMES.
For the season, Hutson Mason has 38 rushes for 23 yards.
He just isn’t a college quarterback.
Mark Bradley says he is.
In fact, yesterday, Mark Bradley AJ-C said that Hutson Mason is A GREAT QUARTERBACK.
In the last 20 years, including Ray Goff and Jim Donnan years in addition to the Mark Richt era, this is the most God-Freaking-Awful Starting Quarterback other than Joe Tereshinski III in 2006 and 2009 with Joe Cox.
Both were, ALSO, 5th year Senior Starters for Mark Richt who like Hutson Mason NEVER GOT ANY snaps to prepare him, either.
Might as well have played Brice Ramsey all season on that point because Hutson Mason did not show me anything last year either, not against Georgie tek, not against Kentucky and not against Nebraska – just like Florida and South Carolina this year.
In fact, it has been a wasted year 2014 because Hutson Mason did not stretch the field all season to take advantage of all these running backs.
Never so tentative a starting quarterback is the damn history of the game.
I do give him credit for not making the myriad of mistakes that Aaron Murray did.
Unfortunately, he WASTED OUR YEAR, just as Joe Cox in 2009 and just as Joe Tereshinski III in 2006.
At least Joe Tereshinski III got YANKED in 2006, sat down, sent to the pines, lost his starting job. 2009, once Joe Cox even with the flu on top of his chronic throwing shoulder, was the only QB to play in the Okie State game who did not make the AP Poll Top 25 that season even with their win over Mark Richt (Joe Cox), 2009 was shot to hell.
Just like 2006.
2010, Mark Richt STARTED a redshirt freshman Quarterback.
2014, he did not, and has not and will not.
Brice Ramsey kind of shot himself in the foot last Saturday aiming the ball on a short crossing route, getting his 1st interception. It could not have been worse for Brice Ramsey, just when he was looking so comfortable back there and threw the deep passes with such aplomb.
It does highlight the difference between Hutson Mason and Aaron Murray and Brice Ramsey, now too.
All off-season, the seed has been planted now in the back of everyone’s mind fresh off seeing him from our seats on an easy throw, take something off the throw and just give the ball away. His interception and all the fumbles by folks Mark Richt had to expect fumbles from – I certainly did – and we ended-up against a 1-AA team with no plus average on the turnovers’ ratio against Charleston Southern University.
Too bad, really. Should have been + 3.
If we were, we’d be # 1 nationally in turnover ratio instead of # 2.
So, after it was 7 to nothing last year against Georgie tek, Hutson Mason
1st went 3 and out, and we punted, which they converted to 10 to nothing FG.
Then, on our next possession with the ball, Hutson Mason threw an Interception. Georgie tek promptly took it in for 17 to nothing. Then, to add fuel to the fire, Hutson Mason then after it was 17 to nothing, fails again to get the 1st down and we punted AGAIN to Georgie tek, who promptly again put up ANOTHER FIELD GOAL to extend their lead to 20 nothing.
I was pissed.
You were satisfied, you run in here and TRY to share with me.
Yeah, right you were.
Damn friqin’ right you were.
Then, Hutson Mason FAILED AGAIN to get the 1st Down and AGAIN we punted.
THIS is what Hutson Mason did against Georgie tek last year.
It should have been 35 to nothing with 38 seconds remaining in the 1st half.
THAT is what happened last year.
Then, Todd Gurley II willed his team to Victory, scoring 4 TD.
I remember thinking when it was 20 to nothing at their lousy as hell stadium, named for college drop-out Bobby Dodd (who dropped-out in college at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville), that we were fortunate our Defense held Georgie tek to only 20 of their should have been 35 to nothing lead.
Todd Gurley II damn sure certainly took advantage of it.
So, the writing was on the wall last year about this Hutson Mason Experiment of Mark Richt – just like his Joe Cox Experiment and his Joe Tereshinski II Experiments as 5th year senior starting Quarterbacks for Mark Richt with ZERO experience, un-played, unproven, and frankly proven to be exactly the opposite of that which Mark Richt tried to quell our concerns with of his glowing praise.
Mark Bradley wrote that bullshit piece so that Mark Richt would talk with him, after his earlier salvos of “it’s Mark Richt’s fault; it’s his team.”
I have no such requirement as I like you read the quotes of Mark Richt. I read every one. And, I watch the video clips and listen to him on the radio.
So, I know Mark Richt and Mike Bobo are BOTH big-time disappointed in Hutson Mason.
Still, he is the only one played. The only one all season. And, NO ONE PREPARED for 2015.
That, since 2014 has been OVER for a month now against Florida.
Bullshit 6-win Florida, who FIRED their coach the week AFTER beating Mark Richt to extend their # 1 Rival Advantage against him to 5-9 Mark Richt vs Florida.
Included all these wins by INFERIOR Florida teams.
Georgie tek is an INFERIOR TEAM.
How inferior ?
# 9 recruits vs # 52 recruits.
2007 we had a similar schedule strength as we have 2014, but our Quarterback managed to throw 10 interceptions and had 3 fumbles, unlike Hutson Mason, and also was sacked 15 times. This is what Hutson Mason does NOT do. Among other plays Hutson Mason does NOT do, such as throwing the ball downfield.
He prefers the 4-yard dinky dunk down pass.
It is ALL he looks for, staring the receiver down, and never going through his progressions despite the criticism ALL YEAR by Mark Richt and by Mike Bobo.
But, rue me for saying the same.
And, you. You too say the same.
2007, we lost to a 6-6 South Carolina who did not even go to a damn bowl game.
2007, we lost to a poor vols’ team, again neither with anywhere near the talent we have, and the vols had a BLOW-OUT win over us 14-35.
I cannot explain the 10 losses by Mark Richt to 10 teams who even with their win over Mark Richt that season, failed to make EITHER the AP or Coaches’ Polls.
That blow-outs like 3 weeks’ ago against Florida and in 2007 to the vols would also be common occurrences nowadays, is just hard to understand given the level of talent we have in the Mark Richt Era, which has not dropped-off at all.
We just take teams lightly, fumble, throw interceptions, get sacked, get blown-out against bitter damn rivals, and just fail to even show-up. We go 3 and out and wait for the suspect defenses we have, to bail our asses out. And, wait for our not so special, special teams to bail us out. Sad, how our offense is actually MARKED WITH THIS.
I do not understand it.
I certainly EXPECT it.
But, I don’t grasp how in the Hell we continue to go out there in big games and fail to convert on 3rd Downs and instead brag on the friqin’ Starting Quarterback.
In addition and in proving the 2nd best # 9 Average Recruiting Class of Mark Richt 2001-2014, Mark Richt ALSO has the 2nd best 81 NFL Draft Picks. This verifies the Average Recruiting Rankings. Southern California, who has the highest Average Recruiting Ranking 2001-2014, is # 1 in NFL Draft Picks too. 83 NFL Draft Picks, Southern California 2001-2014.
Georgie tek average recruiting ranking # 52 for 2001-2014 has only 29 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014.
There is no excuse for Georgie tek to be ahead of us 20 to nothing, and frankly it should have been 35 to nothing. We were fortunate, no thanks to Hutson damn Mason.
With all this talent.
No different from 2007 and no different from 2002 either.
2002 we got a BCS Bowl Win over a 5-Loss FSU # 24.
2007 we got a BCS Bowl Win over # 19 Hawai’i.
That’s IT for BCS Bowl Wins Mark Richt Era.
All this talent, and frankly NOTHING.
Not a damn freaking thing.
Remember 2002, since we covered 2007 now ?
2002, we LOST to a Florida team who did not even make the Coaches’ Poll Top 25 even after Ron Zook beat Mark Richt. Mark Richt’s Offense that year failed to convert a single 3rd Down Conversion. 0-13.
This is WHO we are. This is WHAT we do.
2014, it’s 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina.
It’s frankly so bad that Todd Gurley II said he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre.
In this week’s latest College Football Poll prior to the last week’s games of this college football regular season, we remain # 9 CFP, while we welcome # 16 Georgie tek, who is ranked WORSE than Auburn at # 15.
Who we blew out.
Forgot to take out Todd Gurley II, but BLEW them OUT.
There are so many teams ahead of prior to the last game of the regular season, that even a blow-out over # 1 Alabama were we to back-in to that game by Arkansas beating Missouri who has played the # 56 Strength of Schedule to Arkansas # 1 SoS 2014, that we cannot possibly be judged in the Top 4 teams in America with these continued on-going BAD LOSSES to not 1 but 2 teams who are 6-win Florida and 6-win South Carolina :
So, we had an easy schedule and LOST to 2 crappy-ass teams.
Excuse me for calling it as it is ladies and gentlemen.
I am NOT happy.
Do NOT feel this is a great season.
It is what I said it would be.
Isn’t it ?
Don’t want to read my posts ? Then what the friq are you doing in here ?
Afraid I am RIGHT ?
Sure I am.
2015, with no Quarterback prepared and without Todd Gurley II whom we WASTED as we WASTED KNOWSHON MORENO, will be MORE of the same.
Will it not ?
One Mark Richt Apologist in the last several weeks remarked to me that I should wait until 2016.
Cannot even get 2014 over, and forget wait until 2015.
2016 he says to me.
Such a damn cushy job Mark Richt has.
Cushy as Hell job.
Satisfied with all this LOSING and being mediocre.
We have not played ANY OF THE TOP 14 TEAMS IN THE LATEST CFP.
If Missouri loses as we all hope, and they might lose to a 6-win team, and if we beat Georgie tek and Alabama beats Auburn, we will not have played even a single team in the College Football Play-Off Poll Top 20.
Then, we hope to play Alabama.
We will NOT have beaten a single team in the Top 20 of College Football Play-Off Final Poll.
If we do beat Alabama, we’d have that one win. Clemson is not likely to remain ranked, Georgie tek is not likely to remain ranked, and Auburn is not likely to remain ranked. As it is, they will be at the tail-end of the Top 25, if at all.
I am NOT raining on our damn parade.
That happened at South Carolina and Florida.
Didn’t it ?
Wake-up and smell the damn roses.
I am NOT disappointed we’re # 9.
I am satisfied with that.
I am not satisfied with playing the # 42 SoS and losing to two 6-win teams.
I do not believe we have a chance in Hell of beating Alabama were Missouri to lose to a 6-win team – something we do around here REGULARLY nowadays, don’t we ?
Number # 9 ?
Who is the Play-Off Selection Committee going to pit us against in our Bowl Game ?
The BCS sure blew all that.
Told us we were # 3 team in 2002 and pitted us against 5-Loss # 24 FSU.
Told us we were the # 2 team in 2007, and pitted us against # 19 Hawai’i.
Bullshit BCS Bowl Game Wins.
Give us a team up there where we are.
I’d love to play Oregon as I am certain we’d beat them.
Let us play them.
Let us play # 2 Florida State !
We’d beat the shit out of Florida State.
Let us play TCU or Ohio State or Baylor.
But, we’d NEVER beat Alabama this year. Their passing game is too good and our passing game is piss poor.
Hutson Mason only has 5 fumbles this year, 15 sacks and 3 interceptions. Compared to what Matthew Stafford and Aaron Murray did, this IS GREAT !
Otherwise, no one will even invite Hutson Mason for an NFL look-see even.
He has proven beyond a shadow of the doubt, as Joe Tereshinski III and Joe Cox before him, that he isn’t getting any consideration. His career is over after the next games.
Never to be seen or heard from ever again, as neither Joe Tereshinski III or Joe Cox have been, either.
All 3 with head-scratching losses here, as well – as 3 so-far for Hutson Mason. 3 unranked teams.
You think Aaron Murray was the master at that ?
It’s been ongoing around here.
Hasn’t it ?
And, it has SHOT EVERY GREAT SEASON !
This year is NOT great.
Beat Alabama and it would be.
Don’t and it will not be.
And, we’d still say as in 2002 and 2007 that the reason we did not do what we could’ve those years, and this if we beat Alabama, is that we LOST to two 6-win teams.
Good Lord !
Everyone else BEAT THEM, but Mark Richt did NOT !
I knew this coming in.
It’s what we do.
YOU argued with ME and said it’s not, and that we ARE great.
Adjust your glasses, and say it’s almost as good as a XEROX.
When you’re not even in the top 25 won/lost records after 2007, and playing Alabama 2014 would pretty much assure Mark Richt of that sitting at # 22 as it is, you’re NOT GREAT.
I do not care what the friq you say.
There aren’t any excuses – so, quit wiggling in your panties trying to think of one or more, per usual.
We had the talent and we WASTED IT.
We had an off-season of NOTHING but BAD PRESS.
We followed that up with the players saying we took Florida lightly, to which Mark Richt replied to the players in the Press with : Shut-up !
Pretty much what you’ve said you told me, isn’t it ?
You will see we’re # 10 Sanford Stadium; but we have watched team after team after team in our own conference add to their stadiums while we stand firm while we too could fill a lot more seats, as they.
Jeff Sagarin has his ratings up, you might enjoy looking at the top 2 teams, including us and Alabama.
So, our schedule is weak, we have 9-2 and we have ruined the season with 2 bad losses.
Next up, Georgie tek – another team out-classed by our recruiting as verified by our NFL Draft Picks – who says all week every post I’ve read that they will beat us handily, when at their own house # 43 attendance to our Top 10 Attendance.
Georgie tek is on NCAA PROBATION in FOOTBALL all 2014, again.
Mark Richt really has an entire staff of great recruiters, not to mention how great he is personally at recruiting as well.
Hutson Mason had a fine day today. His fakes were crisp, and he ran the ball well under pressure today. His passes are completed, and unlike Brice Ramsey today, he does not throw interceptions. He missed on some deep throws today, but Brice Ramsey for all the good he was doing, unraveled his day making a poor throw behind the receiver, after starting out so well to begin the 2nd half. Mark Richt took him out and replaced him with Faton Bauta, who I thought had a great day. Jacob Park looms as well, for next season, redshirting now.
Brice Ramsey is starting to look relaxed, comfortable back there. He guided the ball, aimed it, if you will, taking something off his throw to Shakenneth Williams of Macon this his freshman season. Shakenneth Williams was open on a very good crossing route, and Brice Ramsey simply tried to not zip it in there. As a result, the ball was behind the speedster. 6′ 2″ and 200 lbs., he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5, and is long. A Scout.com 4-Star Wide Receiver, he looked good today. Brice Ramsey, too, but not on that pass. And, we were ready to score again, another great drive by Brice Ramsey, to make it 62-9. Instead, that was the end of the day for Brice Ramsey, and you could see he was disappointed he was being taken out then at the 8 minute mark.
Brice Ramsey worked with the 2nd team today, unlike earlier games he has appeared in.
Hutson Mason did not appear as tentative today; perhaps the coaches have gotten through ? We shall see. I thought Mark Bradley described it best when Mark Bradley called Hutson Mason a “halting” Quarterback. On this day, Hutson Mason for the most part, looked the part. Of course, Charleston Southern is in the 1-AA, the FCS. And, they’ve not been that great this season, and likely have now concluded their season, outside the Play-Off cut-off, as we in FBS. Charleston Southern lost to Vandie, Presbyterian, and Coastal Carolina before having their hat handed to them by the strong, great recruits Mark Richt and his staff have brought in here, by stark contrast. And, continue to bring in here. This is why I support Mark Richt. He recruits very well.
I do not believe he determines which ones to play very well, and his game decisions as well, seem tentative and not well thought-out. Today, he was on his game. Against Charleston Southern.
Brice Ramsey looks like a far superior Quarterback to my eyes. I am a db by trade. Faton Bauta looks better to me, as well. And, I am quite certain Jacob Park, as well, is a far better quarterback than Hutson Mason. But, Mark Richt put his foot down on this matter, firmly March 20, 2014 when asked about it :
“Hutson Mason has total command of what we’re trying to do offensively,” Mark Richt said then.
No, he does not. That is why every day since March 20, Mark Richt has criticized Hutson Mason’s passing. That’s what a Quarterback does. He throws the ball. Mike Bobo, too, after every game has commented how tentative, halting if you will, Hutson Mason is back there. Today, I thought Hutson Mason not only looked good, but that Brice Ramsey hurt himself with that interception, aiming the ball, and being tentative himself, guiding the ball across the middle on really pretty good coverage.
After the game, I think Mark Richt was down-trodden. I don’t know what it is about him, but he had a lot of good plays by a lot of players he recruited here to be proud of. I have mentioned it for some time that the pressure seems to be getting to Mark Richt, normally a stubborn man. A man strong in his convictions, as he was March 20 after repeated questions by The Bulldog Nation about Hutson Mason for some time then, and continuing to this day far and wide.
When you think of a Quarterback, you think of someone who throws the ball.
College Quarterbacks can be so much more. They can run the ball. They do a lot more than mechanically, being sound. They make plays. They make your team. They are the star of the game. They are your Team Captain. They who everyone talks about.
I evaluate our players. I have opinions, like ESPN has opinions.
I evaluate our chances, nationally. I evaluate our coaching staff on all aspects that make our Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program a program today that is Top 10 All-Time in Wins and have Six (6) National Championships in Football and 39 additional National Championships in the other sports as well for 45 Total.
I never expected a National Championship for us this year.
Mostly because I believe that Hutson Mason just isn’t a Quarterback. There will be 2 Quarterbacks on our roster today who will be given an invite to the NFL Combines and who will likely try-out for an NFL team. Hutson Mason is not one of the 2. His career is done after the next game against Georgie tek and his bowl performance.
Today, Mark Richt let his back-up Quarterbacks he has not redshirted throw the ball today. It was smart. It was good. It helps them. It helps us. It helps the team. It helps our Program. It helps recruiting. It helps morale. There is no downside to having your back-up Quarterbacks throw the damn ball. They might throw an interception, or fumble or both. Are we to guide our decision-making process by forcing the mechanically correct, incapable by direct comparison, quarterback, to throw the damn ball against a 1-AA weenie school ?
You have opinions, too.
Your opinions are right in line with mine on this : Your opinion, like the entire Bulldog Nation, is that we have far more capable Quarterbacks who can throw the damn ball down the freaking field.
You, also, do not believe we are a Play-Off Team – one of the 4 best in the nation.
You might WANT us to be, or to make it; but, I do not think you think we will beat Alabama if Arkansas, who obliterated Ole Miss today 30 to Nothing, beats Missouri. I guess Arkansas Missouri is a Rivalry. It is a Rivalry Week game, while we welcome the fledgling erstwhile high school offense to my alma mater Saturday. Both ranked teams, not that Georgie tek will end the season ranked, because they will not. They, like other ACC teams, benefit from the fact that the ACC is an All Cupcake Conference, and always has been, compared to The Mighty SEC.
Hutson Mason underthrew Malcolm Mitchell on a deep pass today, so far underthrown that Malcolm Mitchell had to wait on the ball and come back for it and the defender then was all over him for pass interference. It was a specific telltale on-going point you see as well that Hutson Mason cannot throw the damn ball. He can throw short passes, and Brice Ramsey’s crossing route interception today is a short pass. Hutson Mason would’ve completed that pass. He does that. You know that. He doesn’t run the ball, having only 23 yards on 38 carries all season. That’s not a college quarterback. If it were, then the guy would have a lot more than 1825 yards passing as the only quarterback we’ve played all season. This was game 11.
He did, however, hand the ball off to Nick Chubb, who out-ran the secondary for 83 yards and a TD, and another 7-yard romp. Then, we rested him, as I looked for and saw Mark Richt talking to Nick Chubb and nudged on our seats, saying : See Mark Richt ? See Nick Chubb # 27 ? He is telling him, he is taking him out of the game.
1 game too late to learn that lesson.
Justin Scott-Wesley had a TD reception today. It was the only TD Pass Hutson Mason threw on the day, besides the 2 Chris Conley touchdowns, one a highlight reel catch – slightly ahead of him and nearly out of the end zone. Amazing catch.
Quayvon Hicks was the man again today, whatever the reason was for moving him from Fullback, the only Fullback recruited by Mark Richt in 6 consecutive recruiting classes, despite more than 200 Top Fullbacks everyone else recruits every season. He just brushed aside would be tacklers and would not be denied on his only carry.
Brice Ramsey hit Jonathan Rumph for the only other TD score, while Jonathan Rumph looked really good all day long with more catches than everyone else combined. He was great.
Dominick Sanders, of Tucker, had a whale of a game before limping off with what I hope is a bruised knee. He did not appear to me to have an ACL when he just went down by himself, or after contact and then stunned, went down. He is so important to our Defense. I said our Defense would be better this year : How could it not be ?
I am not disappointed with the Defense. On the contrary, I thought they handed the ball to Hutson Mason 1st and goal at the 4 and that play should have won us the game. I also believe that 31 UNANSWERED POINTS by Florida means that Hutson Mason, the only QB to play in the damn game for us, failed to do a freaking thing against only our # 1 Rival.
Make no mistake about this though; we are clearly the # 1 Rival of Georgie tek.
They would like nothing more than to go 1-11 on the season, and just beat us.
I hold Mark Richt solely responsible for those losses to those 2 really lousy football teams beating us this season, already. We have Georgie tek next. I hope Mark Richt drinks an energy drink pre-game. One of the 5-hour variety.
Do those taste good ?
After Nick Chubb romped in to make it 7-0, against OUR # 1 Rival who Mark Richt is 5-9 against now, how in the friq do we not answer ANY of the next 31 consecutive straight points to be blown-out 7-31 ?
I will tell you how. By having a Quarterback who is laid back and comfortable that he is the only Quarterback who will play that day, and who lacks the talent to even be invited to a Pro Day for NFL Scouts, even. College Quarterback, my ass.
Season shot to hell, and one Danny poster had the balls to at least stand-up to me on my opinion in my last post. Not that he wanted to say what he really thinks. He really thinks we’re doing well. No. No, sir. We shot this season to hell in a hand-basket. A season with so much promise because we supposedly have an offense that can balance the great running backs recruited here with the great quarterbacks we recruited here, and never play. An Offense that knows how to take the damn ball on the freaking road against ANOTHER team who considers US their # 1 Rival too and everyone knows that – especially their head coach Steve Spurrier – when handed at the 4-yard line and all these great running backs we have, and score the go-ahead score.
An Offense who does NOT allow 31 UNANSWERED POINTS to not their, but OUR # 1 Rival.
Well, the season winds down and here we are 12-1 against Georgie tek, the lone loss 2008.
You remember 2008 ?
2008 was the season we were # 1 Consensus in Both the AP and Coaches’ Poll pre-season. We promptly went right out and celebrated that Saturday night August 2008. 22 players were involved in such mayhem as bar brawls, fights, drunken disorderly conduct, and one even beat up the local hospital – apologizing later. The very same year, we DROPPED in the rankings right after that from # 1 to # 3. Then, we played Alabama # 6 at our house. They led us on national TV 31 to NOTHING.
All too familiar theme around here.
Now, you can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, if you think you have, can or will censor my ass from saying this. You cannot. You have not. You will not.
You are the problem around here. Happy, Confident, Satisfied.
I want to beat Georgie tek, not tell my friends, and at work and around home that we’re a far more talented team than Georgie tek. That Georgie tek are the rejects, as Charleston Southern – guys like Austin Brown – who we do not want.
Is Austin Brown, Charleston Southern’s QB in the same class as Jacob Park, Brice Ramsey, or Faton Bauta ?
He would not get on the field.
Hutson Mason has been hesitant with the football from day 1 here in Athens. He not only looks horrible on deep throws, but he cannot throw the out either. Chris Conley today had to go down to one knee and wait for the football thrown out in the flats. No arm strength.
He’s been here 5 years, and you can kiss my ass, if you think I cannot say the truth about Hutson Mason because HE is NOT paid $ 3.5 million dollars annually to not only recruit, but determine who in the hell should be playing.
You have your opinion, Danny boy.
By God Above, I am WELCOME AS HELL to my freaking opinion too, whether you like it or not.
You say the exact same as me word for word, Danny boy about Hutson Mason. Don’t give me this bullshit otherwise. I cannot criticize Hutson Mason because he ISN’T PAID ? What the friq is the reason I cannot criticize Mark Richt, asshole ?
I can too.
And, I just criticized you, Danny boy. What is good for the Goose is good for the Gander.
My English sucks ?
Who the friq are you, Danny boy with a reply to me today that mine is poor, when son, your VERY REPLY POST HAS NOT ONE ENGLISH SENTENCE IN IT.
You wrote one paragraph of 100 words. All criticizing me, when the facts are in that criticism Danny boy, you FAIL to write even ONE complete sentence.
You understand me full well you butthole.
You have NO PROBLEM with HOW I SAY what the friq I say, but WHAT I say.
HOW’S THIS CENSORING OF ME, going ?
Hutson Mason had a BAD THROW on a DEEP BALL to Justin Scott-Wesley. It was far off to the left and too far overthrown as usual for him. With GREAT PASS PROTECTION, and no one anywhere within 15 yards of Hutson Mason, Justin Scott-Wesley was WIDE OPEN.
Did you understand that Danny boy ?
Bullshit. Bring it on guy, really.
Jordan Jenkins caused Austin Brown ( See how everyone talks about a team’s freaking Quarterback ? ) to throw an interception nicely brought-in by Quincy Mauger – his 4th of the season. 4th. 4th. Fabulous.
Sony Michel got in the game.
Hutson Mason had good reads today that I saw.
I don’t know what it is about Marshall Morgan but AGAIN today he had SEVERAL kick-offs to the 5-yard line. What’s that all about, commented about by me all season long, again this season. He is inconsistent on kick-offs.
Isaiah McKenzie, whom Brice Ramsey also underthrew today, just has God-Awful hands. I noted Mark Richt talking to him, after his latest drop. Sent him right back out there return the next kick-off, but talked to him on the sidelines in front of me. Beautiful day today, wasn’t it ? Back to return a punt, yet again, Isaiah McKenzie took his EYES off the ball this time. I saw him. He looked at the on-coming guys, and took his eyes off the ball. I guess when you’re 5′ 6″ and 149 lbs. dripping wet, you do that. We have very capable punt and kick-off returners, Mark Richt. You can’t keep sending him BACK out there ahead of the others, more sure-handed. It has to end, sir. By the way, Isaiah McKenzie sir, that guy HIT YOU HARD AS HELL ANYWAY. You never had that ball, side-tracked by the coverage. You never caught the ball. That’s what you’re back there for. And, why we throw passes to you. For you to CATCH THEM. Get your hands out in front of you, and use your hands. Please.
Brice Ramsey is 1st and Goal from the 2, and desperately needing to make a showing today, and Hunter Long, just up and gets out of his damn stance. Bullshit Hunter Long. 1st and Goal and you pull that shit, Hunter Long ? You cost us a TD, Hunter Long, sir.
Kenneth Towns saw the latest fumble by Isaiah McKenzie on the punt return, and did not try to fall on the ball. Instead, he positioned himself, so that he could PICK IT UP, and continue downfield. He was turned right into the fumble. Right at his feet. Kenneth Towns on special teams punt return unit, turned sideways before getting to the ball because he was headed in the other direction, and wanted to be headed downfield and score a TD I guess. It’s a PUNT RETURN. God we suck at Special Teams ! Look, when the ball is fumbled by our Punt Returner, we are LOSING POSSESSION of the damn football. It is the responsibility of the special teams to hand it to the highest scoring offense we’ve ever had. A unit which doesn’t turn the ball over, unlike our Special Teams – no matter how far we don’t stretch the field on pass plays. And, a unit on offense this year, unlike Aaron Murray !
Censor me from saying that, too ?
No, you did not.
Well, Kyle Karempelis made an ass of himself fumbling the ball, again when we were ready to score. And, it cost us not only that TD, but what would’ve been only 3 points scored all day. You gave up a TD. If you expect to get on the field, do not FUMBLE the ball Kyle. You need to learn how to hold the ball. It’s called 3 points – two hands and your body – wrap your arms around it into you, please. I don’t know. That might have cost you any snaps against Georgie tek next week. They think, they are just as talented as we are, you know ? Bullshit, but they do.
Bullshit and they know it, but they do.
Damian Swann caused another fumble today. They made us all wait while some guy in the booth looked at it. The SEC refs called a good game today, but they missed the fumble recovered by Ramik Wilson.
We’re playing pretty well on defense and on offense, and our Special Teams are trying. The lousy horrible vols are not going to beat Missouri. Good Lord, get a grip. The vols do not even have a winning record. It is the type of team that Mark Richt would lose to however, like Florida and South Carolina this season, for example. If you think I am going to root for the vols, you are mistaken. I might however, hope that Arkansas can beat Missouri for us. But, I hold little hope we could beat Alabama although I would like that shot.
Mark Richt has lost to 10 teams now who did not make ANY Top 25 Poll, even AFTER they beat him. This includes Florida and South Carolina, this wasted year.
I am not going to sugarcoat this for you. We kicked their asses on a beautiful day on my campus where I lovingly went to all my classes, and did so well in college at UGA. I lived in Russell Hall in 3B. We were in between Brumby and Creswell with 1,000 lovely ladies on both sides of us. I spent afternoons playing basketball on the courts between. I ate at Snelling, and never at Revoltin’ Bolton. My roommate was on Scholarship in Track. He did not do as well as I in classes. I studied with a lamp at the head of my bed until falling asleep each night, and if I woke up, I had my school book in my hands, and went back at it until I got sleepy again.
I was the rabbit each morning at 5 am running all over Athens with the Track team. I was not on scholarship.
I did walk-on, but did not play.
Today, Mark Richt emptied his bench. I still would not have played.
Charleston Southern University is a school in North Charleston, South Carolina. It is a Baptist college. In my profession, I have sold into South Carolina all my life. Austin Brown, their Quarterback, was at UAB, but not back in 2006 when we last played them. Then, he was at Flowery Branch, in a city where we go on rainy days if the Falcons will let us use their indoor practice facility. If we get one, ever, it likely will be about that far away from our stadium. That will never seem right to me. Why so far away over on Milledge Avenue ?
Milledge Avenue is a mile and a half from Sanford Stadium and our facilities. It would take me 7 and a half minutes to run over there. We will have to load-up on buses like we’re going to Flowery Branch, where Connor Shaw also attended high school.
Nick Chubb was brilliant.
He is wonderful as our running back, and a joy to listen, talking to us. We really recruit well to have landed Nick Chubb. He might not have as good as hands as Todd Gurley II, but he sure is a great running back, blocks very well, and does catch a fair share of dump-downs.
Notre Dame lost today, again. That’s 4. They told us they were National Championship Team 2014. Hogwash. Notre Dame has not done a damn thing in so long that this continued hero worshiping has gotten so old with Notre Dame and with Georgia, that it makes me PUKE.
Ole Miss. What can I say ? I told you that team was not what was said of them, either.
Here we are. 1 test all season. Won that big-time. Just awesome performance last week, other than leaving Todd Gurley II in for 29 carries on 39 degree day when he was ALREADY INJURED in the game, earlier, and we had ALREADY scored 27 UNANSWERED POINTS.
Well, let’s see now ? Was there anything else you said I could not say ?
Can’t criticize the players because they are NOT PAID. Can’t criticize Mark Richt because he is paid $3.5 million a year of MY money. That inconsistency of why was never explained when it seems to me that since I was a walk-on, that BOTH are paid handsomely. And, as a fan of our Football PROGRAM, I like Todd Gurley II am sick and tired of being mediocre and LOSING.
God Almighty Florida and South Carolina.
What could’ve been.
Mark Bradley did another column today where he says neither Georgia nor Georgie tek can make the play-offs. Duh.
But, we have the talent to and Georgie tek does not.
Utah LOST. Give me a break Pac-12. Utah ? Get real.
Nebraska LOST again. You can stick a fork in them. Of course, I said that about them LAST YEAR, TOO, before Hutson Mason LOST to UNRANKED NEBRASKA, LOST TO UNRANKED SOUTH CAROLINA AND LOST TO UNRANKED FLORIDA, who FIRED their coach the following week.
What the freaking Hell does that tell you ?
That we do not deserve ANYTHING but PRAISE and tell them how great they are before we play hapless Georgie tek, us only their # 1 Rival with the most famous fight song about nothing but us TO HELL WITH GEORGIA, like my daddy used to do, they sing – like they have 6 national championships in football in anything but the same damn polls as we – although they have NEVER won the Heisman and NEVER been # 1 in the AP Poll. NEVER.
So, we move up 9-2, average season for Mark Richt – although he averages 3 and a third LOSSES a season for 14 seasons – to replace Ole Miss ahead of us with our # 102 Passing Offense all season long now, to # 9 from # 10. Goal ? Top 4. All the rest, won.
Too bad for us the season was shot to hell like this. Poor coaching really.
Loads of talent on display for the weak crowd, who showed up with me on such a fine Fall Day as today – disguised as empty seats.
Surgery next couple of days for Todd Gurley II, then the INSURANCE PAY-OFF.
He gets $2.5 MILLION of that. Danny boy says it’s bullshit that Todd Gurley II was going to make MORE than that in the NFL. Sure he was. Undeniably, he is the # 1 football player in the United States of America 2014 college season. Absolutely. Left in to get a meaningless 34 UNANSWERED POINTS.
2014 has several story lines, does it not ?
Fans circling the wagons on WHO can say WHAT, while they say the SAME ( in private. )
I would not have any real problem with us being # 10
There is no sense in trying to tell oft-injured Todd Gurley II that there was nothing between him and his dream, that there was nothing he could do to improve his NFL Draft status after we play Georgie tek and bowl game – I tried to tell him that with years of experience watching this and before that, playing it; I just hate it. In 39 degrees after out for 6 weeks, last playing against Vandie October 4 through tonight November 16 now when back home, Mark Richt left all his starters in the game – despite then 27 unanswered points trying to make it 34 which he accomplished. But at what cost to the center of attention who only returned a kick-off 106 yards for a TD on his 1st touch and 138 yards on 29 workhorse carries against about now # 18 Auburn – who now finds themselves tied all-time with UGA in wins in The deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.
We did not need Todd Gurley II. He did not need to be playing, now did he ?
It’s all a horrible nightmare. X-Rays were taken before midnight, carted-off to have them made, after limping from the field as many previous ACL tears and worse I’ve seen through the years. He maybe could’ve helped against # 1 Alabama, were Missouri who has no passing and no rushing either, to lose to either lowly lousy Arkansas or worse the vols – that’s all the hope we have to play # 1 Alabama. That will not get us a play-off spot – even if we beat # 1 Alabama. That’s bullshit hogwash by those who only are allowed to talk to you about the fate of this football program after 2007. What Mark Richt did until 2007, no one talks about anymore. It’s meaningless.
What matters is what he is doing NOW.
I told you Clemson had played 2 games and lost them both. Now, both of us have beat Clemson this season before welcoming the yellowjackettes in 13 days’ time to our house – without Todd Gurley II.
He shouldn’t have played in the 1st place and certainly not 5:37 in a 27-7 ROUT, on route to 34 unanswered points, as Nick Marshall was lousy but a lot better than our QB who has 1,638 yards passing on the entire 10-game to-date season and another 15 yards rushing on 37 rushes – that’s it for the damn season son.
1,638 yards 10 games, which is 163 yards per game and he the only QB to play this season. Sad.
In the other game of significance besides Alabama beating Mississippi State and Clemson losing again to knock them out of rankings, where they never belonged in the 1st damn place, South Carolina who had lost every game since the 2nd game of the season beat a team who lost 10 of their most recent 13-games before beating us the week before last.
This is where we are.
This is where Todd Gurley II is. His NFL Draft status was the # 1 RB in the up-coming draft and about Top Half a Dozen Picks OVERALL, and only hampered by his numerous frequent on-going injuries – or, he would’ve been higher. Hundreds of millions of dollars in the balance. Mark Richt has spoken frequently for 14 years’ time now about the violent dangerous kick-off returns fraught with danger for injury to the kick-off returner. 1st game back, right out there he goes to be gassed and having to be replaced in the starting line-up by none other than Heisman Trophy Front Runner for 2015 season, Nick Chubb.
Ryne Rankin, who set his all-time personal tackle record for UGA last week with 1 tackle against Kentucky, called for holding, negated what we all stood-up and cheered our silly little frozen heads over that Todd Gurley II could return the 1st kick-off to us after Auburn shut us all up 0-7 taking the opening possession the length of the field, prior to 34 unanswered points by our beloved Bulldogs. Ryne Rankin held at the point of Todd Gurley II’s cut-back, right there, at the 32-yard line, giving us the ball at our 22-yard line instead of the TD at the far end of the field. Ryne Rankin now has 3 tackles all season this season and 3 assists – total – for all 10 games combined.
And the ruination of the FREE TODD GURLEY II triumphant return on his 1st touch back after 6 weeks’ exile.
I just really hurt for Todd Gurley II and his mother and family. The best of folks get no breaks in life.
It did not have to happen.
Damian Swann got away with punt interference later – darting in front of Auburn’s punt returner – who was calling for a fair catch with no one shoving Damian Swann there, as the Fair Catch had been called long before his arrival.
We did not miss any field goals for a change, and tried to match the most penalized team in the nation, penalty for penalty. We also fumbled the ball 3 times, including Todd Gurley II; but, this was again not Auburn’s night for the 3rd time this season – although those 3 teams today are ranked :
# 11 maybe Georgia Bulldogs who have a 1-0 record against teams ranked for the season, in our only game of the year – despite 0-2 losses to 2 awful football teams, there is no other way to put it. Too bad for a coach the entire 2nd half of his career, marked with losses – not even a top 25 team after 2007 – that he would win a game by risking Todd Gurley II. And, on a night when Notre Dame would lose and Florida State struggle yet again, and # 1 go down, and # 5 Struggle, and # 8 get beat. None of that matters.
All that really matters is that Todd Gurley II is really injured seriously – this time.
UNRANKED Texas A & M, who was UNRANKED before they lost to a miserable Missouri team tonight when Missouri has had no running game and no passing game all this entire season. Texas A & M was seemingly our only hope for salvation from ourselves.
# 5 About Mississippi State.
On the plus side, besides these 3 LOSSES already, Auburn did beat Kansas State, Ole Miss (on a fluke injury play at the goal line) and unranked LSU as they were shut-out 17 to nothing tonight, dropping them from any rankings.
I do not see Ole Miss beating Mississippi State, nor Alabama being anything other than # 1 when they face Missouri – us having to only hope now Arkansas or the vols can do what so many awful teams have done to Mark Richt double-digit losses by Mark Richt to UNRANKED teams in ANY POLL for the season. Hapless teams like these 2 Arkansas and the vols, are Mark Richt’s ONLY HOPE to get into anything resembling a posturing even for the Play-Off Selection Committee. Pretty sad really, that our only hope on a season with all these great talents we have on our team this season should boil down to needing :
(1) vols without a winning record even on the season despite playing Arkansas State community college, Utah State community college, and Chattanooga city college – not to mention such cupcakes as South Carolina and Florida (Both of whom beat us, 1 of whom FIRED their coach AFTER he beat us – what does THAT tell you?), Kentucky and Vandie. This is whom we place our hopes and dreams on, if we can get over having played Todd Gurley II in 39 degree weather for 29 carries including one with a 3 TD lead with only 5:37 remaining in the game – when he had not played in 6 weeks’ time since Vandie October 4 through November 16, when he also had the 106 yard kick-off return to begin this frigid night in high winds. Damn it Mark Richt; it was so clear that all the ingredients were there to NOT have him run that ball meaningless 3 TD lead to make it 4 TD lead, not the LEAST OF WHICH was ALSO in addition to all this : he was injured, compensating for his inability to use his arm in a soft cast from earlier in the blessed damn game : Mark Richt you bloody freaking idiot.
(2) Arkansas who likewise does NOT EVEN HAVE A WINNING RECORD on the season. These are the 2 damned teams we rest all our hopes and dreams upon beating a team, Missouri with no running game and with no passing game. Expect Georgia under Mark Richt to maybe lose to such teams, hell yes. Expect someone else to do the same ? Well, Missouri certainly does not enjoy the talents of THIS GREAT STATE FOR RECRUITS, to see Mark Richt add the crocodiles AGAIN this season to his list of nobody teams who beat him like a drum they beat him and THEN FIRED Will Mushchamp as I guaranteed to you ALL SEASON LONG AND PRE-SEASON AS WELL ON THIS BLOG. Mark Richt ALSO LOST to hapless South Carolina, who lost their opening game of the season, beat us, then proceeded to LOSE EVERY GAME until they played Florida last week, whom THEY ALSO BEAT.
South Carolina does not have a WINNING RECORD EITHER – like Arkansas and like the vols.
Florida just FIRED THEIR COACH for beating Mark Richt.
Ron Zook ALSO was FIRED AFTER HE BEAT MARK RICHT.
5-9 against Florida with LOSS AFTER LOSS TO HORRID FLORIDA TEAMS and hapless coaches.
Multiple hapless coaches, fired for beating Mark Richt.
Or, in spite of beating Mark Richt.
We have a poll here on this blog.
It’s 5 to 1 votes against Mark Richt sending Todd Gurley II BACK OUT at 5:37 mark.
(1) 39 degrees and windy bitter cold
(2) not played 6 weeks Oct 4 to Nov 16
(3) 106 yard kick-off return to begin our game after Auburn TD on opening kick-off
(4) 29 carries already
(5) 138 yards rushing already
(6) INJURED ALREADY and arm in a soft cast, compensating for that as we all saw
(7) send his ass back out there with Nick Chubb rested on bench and with others who could have run the damn ball to get Mark Richt his precious 4 TD lead, 3 TD lead NOT ENOUGH
So, Todd Gurley II made UGA pay $ 75,000 to have a $ 2.5 million dollar policy if he slips in the NFL Draft worse than # 8 pick overall and $ 5 million dollars if he never plays again. Both insurance companies would tell you that Mark Richt prima facie failed to show due diligence and ACTED IN NEGLIGENCE with Todd Gurley II – a kid.
Todd Gurley II is NOT AN ADULT. He is a year away from being an adult. He cannot drink. TGII cannot even supervise a learner driver. He cannot begin to drive a vehicle with capacity for carrying people, nor any transport airplane, not even a gyroplane.
TGII is one of our CHILDREN. And, will be for another year.
Todd Gurley II cannot even purchase a can of beer.
TGII cannot even drink a can of beer, if his mom buys him one.
He can, however, enter into a contract that he be paid $ 2.5 million if his NFL Draft Pick Status currently # 8 drops at all.
And, he and his mom damn sure can sue Mark Richt personally for EVERY DAMN PENNY for sending him back out there in the cold after 6 weeks lay-off for carry # 29 when he already was injured earlier in the game.
You hear me Mark Richt, you friqin dumbass ?
For THIS, Mark Richt looked at ALL the 7 RISK FACTORS and played him anyway. If I were the insurance company, I would SUE MARK RICHT’S DUMBASS for the full extent of the pay-out. Every friqing penny.
Sad all around.
Season shot in the foot against Florida, losers of now 11 of their last 15 games, and South Carolina who had not won a game since the 2nd week of the season both of whom beat us.
South Carolina, with a LOSING RECORD, faced Florida at the Swamp, and somehow Florida managed to lose to the bums, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory as Hutson Mason did – deer in the headlights – against South Carolina to already scuttle this season. They BOTH lost to Missouri.
Now, we hope Arkansas or the vols can beat Missouri, so we can back-in once again to The SEC Championship Game against # 1 Alabama and what ?
Put us in the play-offs the blogs you are allowed to read tell you about this season.
You lose to South Carolina and to Florida this season and you are NOT going to be judged any Top 4 team in the nation no matter what the friq you do thereafter, dumbass writing this to your glee on his blog this week. A sanctioned blog, I might add.
I am NOT into Censorship.
I was cold on this blue-out night. Black-Out, well at least we cured that bad taste in our mouths finally tonight, but some wore red only and most blue, on black-out night and it was bitter cold. 1st real cold all season. It will be 19 tomorrow Monday after the rain and Tuesday night. Shit happens. Balls bounced off of hands all night long. Mine were frozen and I had on gloves, because I kept taking them off.
Tonight, you will read how we routed Auburn a Top 10 team, who is going to have a struggle to make any polls this season, even with a bowl win – as Auburn obviously has no passing game to come back in a game with, and seemingly has not improved their defense a damn bit over last season, which I also spent saying Auburn was not deserving of their ranking as well and not just because they beat us. It will say at a cost we routed Auburn, a dear cost to a great man we all Love and Adore and did not want to see playing after 29 rushes he had to take already this cold night after 6 weeks’ lay-off from making cuts, on a night he would be in the fray heated-up 105 yards’ TD kick-off return – then, this. Alas, always this. Even in such a great win when our Defense once again, this season, rose up and met the challenge. I still have no idea what happened at Florida 2 weeks’ ago, or South Carolina in week 2.
But, it’s what we do nowadays after 2007, seven years of this shit.
What could’ve been.
We could be in the play-offs and obviously could beat a team that we gave a shit about beating. Who we give a shit about beating and who we don’t a matter of public record of the players, many different players who said we took Florida lightly. Nothing was said about South Carolina – neither of whom are worth a shit this season.
Georgie tek we now face without Todd Gurley II, who should’ve never been on the field at 5:37 in a 27 unanswered point lead 27-7.
I know Brendan Douglas fumbled again tonight. I said it was bitter on my own hands.
And, Todd Gurley II’s.
And, even Michael Bennett’s. And, Chris Conley’s, and all the 3 fumbles and half a dozen drops by Auburn’s receivers, two of the fumbles which we recovered and all their drops on pass plays we touch advantage of.
Isaiah McKenzie sent back for punt return, just does not have good hands – feet yes, but someone needs to teach him how to use his hands properly, as he too dropped a certain TD Pass which bounced of his hands in the cold, too.
All of them fumbled and dropped passes tonight, but Auburn’s Special Teams are even worse than our own.
It was that kind of a night. Why play a game on such a cold day at night in the 1st place ?
ESPN GameDay was at Mississippi State Alabama, I presume.
We faked a punt and threw a long TD pass to a wide-open man, only to see our Special Teams once again flub it, as we did on our 1st Kick-Off return this night. This time on the converted for a TD Fake Punt, Brandon Kublanow with no one around him, decided to take a walk downfield as an ineligible receiver when instead he has started all season long on the OL. Go figure. Put Brandon Kublanow on our Special Teams and he takes a walk-about which from my seat looked to be about 4 and a half yards past the line of scrimmage before he caught himself and just stood there, no one around, looking rather sheepish as the play was way to the other side of the field for a TD and never did we even look in Brandon Kublanow’s direction. The play was to the left and he at right offensive line position on Special Teams, just blows it.
When Aaron Murray went down with his injury last season, that season was already shot too with loss after loss. Again.
Zach Mettenberger is Starting in the NFL.
This is what we do, too.
So on a night where we WIN over then # 9 Auburn 34-7 spanking of Biblical Proportions, all anyone can talk about is why Todd Gurley II would even be on the freaking field up 27-7 with 5:37 left in a game we had already scored 27 unanswered points, so that we could tack that on too to be 34-7.
That is what Brendan Douglas is for.
That is what you gave Brendan Douglas the Scholarship for. It is what he does for us.
We are such dumbshits coaching our men. We’re freaking clueless.
And, in the balance, $ 100 million dollars stolen from Todd Gurley II. The NFL is not for running backs who get picked poorly in the draft who then have to prove they’re not going to get injured – now, he has that moniker. Thanks a lot Mark Richt.
Hutson Mason threw a 4-yard dink down TD pass to Malcolm Mitchell, locked-in and staring him down. He also threw a horrible deep pass into double-coverage in the end zone. The pass was wide right by 7 yards and overthrown by 6 yards. His receiver was not in 40-square yards of the deep pass for a TD. It should have been intercepted. Against Alabama it would have been. Reggie Davis had to become defensive back, or on another Hutson Mason pass is also intercepted.
54 again, Brandon Kublanow, who just had a horrible night on Special Teams back to block on a punt, just stood there and assisted 2 others to his right blocking 2 Auburn guys on the right, zeroed in on them and finally just waving his left arm at # 24 for Auburn who rushed-in from his left. This is coaching. Special Teams’ coaching, something we haven’t had in years and years and years now. A guy comes from your left, Brandon Kublanow, sir, you TAKE THAT MAN, when you are lined-up on the left.
Of course, Brandon Kublanow plays on the RIGHT SIDE of the Offensive Line, not the left so his tendencies and training are all COMPLETELY OPPOSITE from his responsibilities on Special Teams’ Punt unit – which is one of the worst in the nation by the way.
Auburn’s Special Teams are even worse.
So we won the game and convincingly while all that will be said will be at what cost to Todd Gurley II, personally ?
Todd Gurley II ends his season with less than 1000 yards rushing again, same as last season, while Nick Chubb goes over.
Todd Gurley II, best of all best to you sir in your recovery and hopefully great NFL career – which was a certainty on these pages, and now is in question. My prayers are for you and your family, sir.
JAX is not a place anyone would got to for a vacation, and certainly not in November. The stadium leaves much to be desired, and is no comparison with Sanford Stadium. Our beautiful campus is always a source of great pride and rightfully so, but JAX, instead ? Hell no. We stayed at the Desota Beach Hotel over on Tybee Island and eaten at the Flying Fish we enjoy because we can walk there from the Hotel. We like the room because with a view of the Atlantic Ocean from our balcony, the staff is friendly and courteous, and the drive down I-16 is still nice after finally being built. We stayed in JAX too, the Hell Hole. For our money, however, it’s still more a destination for vacation to go 95 miles South to Daytona Beach, where the restaurants are even better and the hotels have a far wider choice.
Florida is not a very good football team. We were told by the jort-wearing crocodiles’ fans that their offense would be far superior this season because they got Kurt Roper as their Offensive Coordinator when I felt they should have replaced their head coach. I asked them in reply : How is Kurt Roper going to make guys who have never done a thing, all of a sudden, a great offense ?

In a long run of not good football teams we’ve played 2014, Florida stands out. Last season, you recall they went the entire season of 2013-2014 not beating a single team who even went to a bowl game. They suck. One Florida fan replied not only that their Offense would be great 2014 having added Kurt Roper to their talentless Offense where high school offensive players go to never be heard from ever again in their lifetime, but that Florida did beat a team who at least made it to playing in a bowl game : lowly Toledo. Excuse me, I pointed out, Toledo did NOT play in a bowl game 2013-2014, as I studied before I made the statement that Florida did not beat a single team all 2013 season who even WENT to a bowl game – let alone won it.
We chase opposing Quarterbacks, but actually getting them on the ground, we’re not actually accomplished at that.
As bad as Florida’s Offense is again this season as I said it would be all along, we’re actually WORSE Passing the damn ball than they are. Imagine that !
There is nothing that really stands out as the key to this game, as there is no key to a game against such a vastly inferior football team.
All those recruits, and they still have – even with Kurt Roper – a hideous offense.
We have not beat anyone, and have played a long string of just nobodies – including most especially 4-4 South Carolina and now 3-3 Florida.
Why do you think everyone MAKES the point that The SEC East is DOWN ?
vols 3-4 certainly are worse than both Florida and South Carolina, if that possible even. I expect the vols to lose at South Carolina while we are stomping Florida, and the vols already lost to Florida and to us.
These teams are NOT the measure of UGA.
Are they ?
That’s like talking about Mark Richt’s consistent record against Georgie tek – like that any measure of our football program either – now, isn’t it ?
Lose to a team like this Florida squad, and you have serious bad press the likes of which will not be lived down.
Florida hates us. We’re their Rival. We never really caught on to that fact. They believe, and their fans believe, that it is their birthright to beat us. No. No, it is not.
Is it ?
We’ve gone down there to JAX the Hell Hole, many times, and just as this season – on paper – there was no contest who the better team is.
Florida cannot make 3rd Downs and they cannot stop anyone from converting them – although their defense is good until 3rd Down. Their special teams, mostly, suck.
And, to think, I thought we were bad at 3rd Down Conversions.
We are. Florida is way worse.
And, penalties I have spoken about all season again, for us – as bad as we are, Florida is way worse at that too.
I have said how poorly we have made 1st Downs all season and again, rightfully so. Florida is so bad at this, as to render any discussion on this point pre-game as moot.
I have made the point that our Kick-Off Return Defense has been poor because until last game, we did not kick the ball off far enough back into the End Zone; but again, Florida is so bad at Kick-Off Returns’ Defense that criticizing us on this point for the sake of gaining our attention to these points for the up-coming games against top teams nationally that criticizing our own Kick-Off Return Defense before this game, would seem to be beating a dead horse – if we ever get finished playing all these nobody opponents all season long and continuing this game once again.
But, is it ?
We’re still bad at all these areas.
Aren’t we ?
The fact our hapless opponents have not taken advantage of all these areas for us, except for Steve Spurrier with his hapless 4-4 record, is of no consolation.
The facts are, Mark Richt has lost 8 games to teams who even with their win over us, did not make either the AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll for the season.
We’ve got real problems. Florida will not expose them.
Our Defense will shut down Florida’s Offense. Florida cannot win when they do not score.
We still have no Passing Offense, and Florida does have a Defense against both the Pass and the Run. This the very type of Defense I have warned of all season long : a Defense that packs the box and forces our QB to throw the ball into their stout Pass Defense.
I think we will throw interceptions. I think we will get to JAX to get acclimated to the humidity and temperature a scant few hours before kick-off. I think we will play in a dilapidated old worn-out run down rinky-dink stadium where they play the Gator Bowl every year with fans for the opponents who actually think Will Muschamp will be back if he can finally live-up to his Guarantee Multiple Times that he would BEAT GEORGIA !
I think our Passing Offense will be exposed as what it is, again. We’re a joke Passing the damn ball.
Here we are Tuesday and no TGII, just TGIII.
Hutson Mason has seen us lose and beat Florida here. I have seen much more. Florida knows that this game is like Georgie tek playing us every year. Nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Las Vegas has us a 2 Touchdown Favorite.
Imagine that !
Auburn looms, and thereafter the # 1 SEC West team for us in The SEC Championship Game. Getting there is NOT the goal. Nor, is simply getting there acceptable. I have little expectations that we can beat the top teams nationally, but I would love to play Oregon in a Bowl Game. I am certain we would beat Oregon.
Auburn is in the thick of their schedule now, not that losing to Mississippi State 2 weeks’ ago now, was not the thick of their schedule too. Auburn will be beat-up by the time they have to face us, and this finally a home game for us.
We’ve been on the road forever.
1st it seemed we played all the games this season at lovely Sanford Stadium.
Now, it’s been so long since we played on our beautiful campus, that I wonder what it looks like ?
At least, we got to play one “game” at home all this long October : Vanderbilt like they the same team without James Franklin in what was then last season his 3rd and final. Yeah for that !
A month and a half between home games for us : Vanderbilt to Auburn. Vandie Oct 4 and Auburn Nov 15 !
We can look ahead, if we like. It’s been this type of schedule all season, as it turns out.
Our win over last place in The SEC West Arkansas is the only win by any SEC East team over any SEC West Team.
We should be considering the fact that we have areas to seriously work on, for the games coming up because # 8 Coaches’ Poll and # 9 AP Poll, most certainly will be on the radar today in the 1st Play-Off Selection Committee Poll. But, do we deserve it ? Are we really that good that we demand attention in the Final 4 Play-Off Selection ?
Does anyone really believe we will beat the # 1 SEC West team in The SEC Championship Game ?
Show up ?
That good enough ?
Cushy job here.
Florida is just the next step. Another crappy assed football opponent for us, not worthy of stepping on the same damned field with us, but they will be there and they will believe they can beat us – for it would make their season and at least make Will Muschamp feel like he delivered on his promise – the 4th try.
I do not like JAX. I do not like the crocodiles’ program or its fans equally. I do not like us having one less home game every year because of this shitty stadium. I especially do not like all the cops between here and there targeting us. I do not like it when we do get there, and I like the alternative cities all better but too far away to my liking. It’s not being there. Being there, no treat as I see it. I’d like our men to have equal footing and we do not have that by any measure.
We should never have lost the game in 2002 to Ron Zook, but we went 0-13 on 3rd Downs including the pass floated by David Greene over the head of Terrence Edwards who went on to the hapless Falcons the following year, now retired. That pass was our last of the 13 Third Downs we faced. Had we even completed that one, we win – as he was wide-ass open with nothing but turf ahead of him. Florida would go on to be unranked even with the Ron Zook win over Mark Richt 2002 in the Final AP Poll for 2002, but they beat us. We got to play 5-loss FSU in our BCS Bowl Game.
I’d like to beat Florida.
I’d like to beat Auburn. I remain unconvinced of Auburn again this season as I was last.
I’d like to beat The SEC West # 1 team.
We have to play this cruddy team 1st.
Where have the obnoxious Florida fans gone ?
Hiding. That’s where they are. This is one of the most God Awful football teams in the nation and has been.
Will Muschamp’s Last Harrah, or last pitiful Offensive Showing for a program who prior to him, had an Offense.
I remain unimpressed with their former Rice player, and all his stops in-between – none of which produced any wins over top teams, either.
Is Georgia a top team for Kurt Roper ?
Unfortunately, we’re on the outside looking in – because we have not beat anyone, either.
The team who wins Saturday shall not alter this fact for either team.
And, it had better not be Florida.
This is our game, and we deserve to win. This is how we should act.
“This evidently won’t be the game that Georgia goes downfield. The tailback or fullback has touched the ball on 29 of Georgia’s 34 plays [to start vs the vols]. And at least at the outset it wasn’t a matter of taking what the defense is giving the Bulldogs: Tennessee didn’t respect the pass at all, stacking the box to start the game. And on third-and-eight on Georgia’s first drive the Vols only had one safety back. Mason couldn’t take advantage…And a couple drives later, when Mason had his…interception…it looked bleak for the passing game…this may be the game Mason needs to pass the ball to win”
Now, let me get this straight because Seth Emerson’s blog certainly does not have brisk comments. In fact, when I do, I am the only one who ever does.
This is a free country Seth and Gentry tell us. Yes, sirs, and you can say that we should all be Chuck Dowdle type fans, and can even go so far as criticizing all 22 blogs who have their say about Hutson Mason’s lack of effort to even try to go downfield.
But, try if you are capable in the same PODCAST to not contradict yourselves, if you don’t mind too ?
12 men on field, ok for us to boo you say.
We’re restless as Georgia Bulldogs’ fans # 23 Won/Lost record coming into this season starting after all the way back to 2007 and we’ve already lost to a 3-loss certain to be more playing Auburn, South Carolina. Whom is it we’ve beat ? Who, pray tell ?
There is not one team on our schedule yet who is a ranked team in your AP Poll Top 25, is there ?So, we’re restless you tell us in your PODCAST, and there is a frustration element with our program and you understand that you go on, but channel it you admonish us all. Apparently, Seth Emerson and Gentry Estes have a radio program. I don’t know. Maybe it’s in Macon ?
They ask each then, Should we go up-tempo more, would that help Hutson Damn Mason ?
We are who we are you say. By that, you mean we are a rudderless ship, without a quarterback. Isn’t that what you mean, being consistent with what we all know you do say about Hutson Mason ?
In the paragraph in the 1st half of the vols’ game, you say Mason could not take advantage of only 1 safety back, then when he threw another interception, it looked bleak for the passing game, and even this may be the game Hutson Mason needs to pass the ball to win !
So, which is it then ?
Do as you say, or do as you do do, gentlemen ?
Make up your damn minds, ok ?
Get off your damn soapbox and quit with criticizing anyone who has something to say about the POOR QUARTERBACK PLAY of Hutson Mason, when you note yourself that Jacob Park looks better and that Todd Gurley II looks better at QB and so too does Brice Ramsey, and there are other blogs this morning saying as I as well that so too does Faton Bauta.
People criticize Hutson Damn Mason, who is just a college athlete, you say.
Excuse me, you say it too, and he is not even trying to throw the ball downfield. He lost the South Carolina game who is an unranked team in our AP Poll vote Seth, a game we should never have lost obviously now, and he did so by acting like a deer in the headlights when handed the ball 1st and goal from the 4.
Any other QB of all the quarterbacks we’ve seen all season on our opponents’ teams or our own, would have won the game for us. The USCe fans were so sure of that, that they threw debris into the end zone before the ill-fated poorly executed play, grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory.
You go on to discuss who else might beat us ?
Well, if Hutson Mason is the QB, the list is long : Alabama if we play them in The SEC Championship Game, Auburn twice maybe; Florida and Missouri, although both similarly weak teams to ourselves, might; Georgie tek you point out might though they’ve not played anyone and never do; Arkansas might; both Mississippi schools could if they make it to The SEC Championship Game. Hell, Kentucky might with Hutson Mason as our QB. Then our bowl opponent might. Surely, we are so far out of the play-off picture as to not require discussion of the 15th game, which you say by the way in your podcast we cannot make it to – you say !
I think we can. All we have to do is play Brice Ramsey.
Heck any of the 14 teams you have ranked higher than Georgia in your AP Poll vote this week, all might beat Hutson Mason. Right ?
# 15 UGA you say AP Poll vote and you said in the PODCAST the reason for that is that we’ve not played well. The other 14 you rank ahead of us, look better to you, because consistently, you have given Hutson Mason H-E-L-L as everyone else.
So, you think it’s cute to say stop already.
We have to play 14 games this season, you say in PODCAST. We play 1 of the 14 teams you have ahead of us in your AP Poll, most likely in the bowl game. Right ? Who do you think will win that game with Hutson Mason our QB ? 1 of the 14 teams you ranked AHEAD of us all with better quarterbacks than Hutson Mason ?
Don’t answer that question.
You never do on your own blog, either.
And, we’ve read and now listened to you explain just how poorly Hutson Mason has done EVEN TRYING to throw the ball downfield – which he frankly makes no effort at – save being worried Brice Ramsey took his job, and called his own number 15 of the next 19 plays including the pass to Chris Conley 45 yards for the TD. Chris Conley has played all games this season, and started the 1st 3 and has been open all season like that.
Hutson Mason, himself, should tell the coach, put in Brice Ramsey, since he has redshirted Jacob Park.
Hells Bells, play Faton Bauta.
We have not played a team all season who had a worse quarterback than Hutson Mason.
Have we ?
On our own team, all our other Quarterbacks are all better, even Mr. Todd Gurley II.
I cannot say that ?
Good Luck with that, in this Free America, son, given that you can say that, but we cannot you muse.
Ha ha ha.
Good one Seth.
You continue, you are not saying don’t criticize. The Hell you aren’t.
If he is not misbehaving you say, or embarrassing, not loafing, do not criticize the player – so you say, not so you do yourselves.
Gentry if you don’t want to be a side-kick, then, disagree if you disagree.
I disagree with Seth Emerson all the time, Gentry Estes.
Read his blog.
If anyone comments, it is I Gentry.
Keyboard Warriors ?
Well, yeah there were 22 blogs who were keyboard warriors and actually as the day went on, more wrote blogs too all them saying the same as the 22, which included wait for it now : you sir, too.
We lost the right to criticize the players ?
Seriously son ?
I pay my monies. I see the same as you do.
I see Hutson Mason is our worst quarterback by a large wide margin. I see his back-up get 4 passes. 4.
If the athlete is accused of shop-lifting at Wal-Mart or accused of strangling his girlfriend, then fine you go on, criticize those players only you pontificate to us all.
How convenient now that both of those 2 players have been KICKED-OFF THE DAMN TEAM son.
All 22 of us and you front and center, you are criticizing too, aren’t you Seth Emerson and Gentry Estes, sirs ?
Not playing hard, ok fair game you say.
The examples you gave us on Twitter, were the best examples of what you do not like about criticizing the players ?
These are your best examples ?
If the kid is TRYING. Well, yeah, Hutson Mason is trying. Even his own head coach says he is VERY TRYING.
So, too, does Mike Bobo.
Boo at halftime for yet another lackluster performance at our house ? You say no, cannot do that. Counter-productive you go on and on. How damn counter-productive is it for us to do, if as our beat-writer you note yourself that we accomplished what we wanted after booing them at halftime – which was an acceptable amount of effort to do what is expected of them ? We did that as fans. I recall booing. Tens of thousands of us did. And, we’re all wrong, and only you right ? The team responded after halftime, unlike how we viewed the athletes’ performance in the 1st bloody half as not making the effort – which is a criticism of the coaching again anyway, not the players. You just don’t get it. Do you ?
Does not help you win, you argue.
Yes it does.
Proved by the 1 example you gave us.
You would not fare well on the Debate Team, I can assure you.
Does not help the team. Sure it does.
Look guys, if the supporters of a program are not able to speak-up and tell them what Mr. Todd Gurley II told them himself too, just as you, that he is tired of losing and us being mediocre, then by God Above, all 22 of us can too, including yourself and everyone whose blogs purport to be only positive on TheDawgBone, but hardly are.
Are they ?
Are you sir ?
The player does not need it pointed out you try on for size. Just damn guy. Who in the Hell is supposed to point out to him that his efforts to go through his progressions to throw the ball downfield are atrocious ? Mark Richt ? Check : he’s done that. Mike Bobo ? Check : he’s done that. You ? Check : for you’ve done that too. Haven’t you ?
Over the top ? Over the line ?
What’s over the top or over the line about having our Top 10 All-Time Program in Wins, # 23 in Won/Lost Record starting after 2007 through the beginning of this season ?
That’s what’s over the top ?
That we are expected to field a damn QB who can throw the damn ball downfield ?
What’s over the top or over the line, is TRYING to stymie the criticism when out of the other side of your same damned mouth, you point out again in the PODCAST that this just isn’t going to be a balanced offense. Because the chosen one at QB makes NO EFFORT to go through his progressions to throw the ball downfield.
This is ALL more of a criticism of the coach than it is of the QB Seth. Maybe you missed that ?
No maybe to it.
Whoosh, the sound of the criticism going right over your head – not over the line or over the top – just whoosh the sound going over the top of your head that we are criticizing and so are you, Mark Richt, for choosing this inept ill-prepared, incapable weak-armed QB instead of those who do impress you.
You did not address yourself to me.
I am however, addressing myself to you sir.
I think you expected I would.
Didn’t you ?
You’ve crossed the line of decency in beat-writing.
Why bother read your blog ?
You lie when you write that we should not criticize when that’s all you’ve done, isn’t it ?
Where are your glowing words of how great Hutson Mason is ?
I’ve read your every blog.
You’ve not written those words, just criticism only, sir.
Again, I am the 1 who comments on your blog.
How much will Brice Ramsey get to play you go on ? Well, you say, it depends on how Hutson Mason does, you tell us.
“HE MIGHT NOT KEEP THE JOB.”
That’s what you said.
Make up your frigin’ minds !
You make this quote to me and all of us at the 33 minute 45 second mark of the PODCAST.
Yes, I listened to the entire PODCAST.
I do that.
I am a fan of this football program with seasons’ tickets for my whole lifetime : First Dad’s then his and mine I started adding to his.
Don’t give me this weak crap that he isn’t paid. My college degree from The University of Georgia has made me millions upon millions. Without it, they would not have even interviewed me. It’s a prerequisite. A college education cost ? $ 300,000 that about cover it Seth ?
How much ?
$ 200,000 ?
How much, seriously ?
It’s certainly not $ 100,000. I can assure you of that.
You go on Jonathon Rumph, you say we do not want another year. You say you are quoting coaches, but son you said it in the same PODCAST you tell US not to criticize players. A hamstring injury. So, not only can you criticize Hutson Mason repeatedly in meticulous detail repeatedly, but you can criticize athletes who are injured.
You are called-out, son.
Then, to summarize your PODCAST, you throw in : If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
We load the box ourselves. We are who we are.
Mark Richt and Mike Bobo you conclude want balanced offense, but it’s not going to happen this year you say.
I say get Hutson Mason out from behind center.
I and you, and everyone else.
Kiss my grits hypocrite.
Do you think our recruits are so stupid that if you tell them that no one should criticize this entire Hutson Mason Failed Experiment – like Joe Tereshinski III and like Joe Cox – that they will like think Hutson Mason should be our QB ?
That helps our recruiting ?
How in the Hell does that help our recruiting Seth and Gentry ? I ask you gentlemen : How ?
You think they disagree with you 2 that Hutson Mason is not very good at even trying to put forth the effort to go through his progressions to throw the damn ball downfield ?
That what you think, seriously ?
These recruits know all these guys buried on the Depth Chart behind Hutson Damn Mason, and they know that these other Quarterbacks are ALL better than Hutson Frigin’ Mason. That’s what hurts recruiting gentlemen, I submit respectfully sirs.
Not agreeing with them and with you that Hutson Mason makes no effort to go through his progressions to throw the ball downfield and is not the type of QB who should be considered better than those he is played as Favorite ahead of, instead : This does NOT hurt recruiting; it helps it because they know you’re right and he should not be playing. So, we said it and they think we’re ALL smart.
You included, then. See ?
Hutson Mason should tell Mark Richt he wants to see Brice Ramsey. And, you know that too, sirs.
Try a Google Search on this : Should anyone criticize Hutson Mason ?
Well, he does everything else. So, why not let him pull-up and throw the ball 50-yards to a wide open man ? I understand Mark Richt was not in agreement with that. He’s still trying to prove to someone, anyone, that Hutson Mason was not the wrong choice. Just like Joe Cox was not the wrong choice, and just like Joe Tereshinski III was not the wrong choice.
Thursday night saw # 2 Oregon and their Heisman Hopeful QB not only lose but the QB have the ball taken away from him on the last play of the game at 2:30 a.m.
TGII is now leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy, which would be our 3rd Heisman, while Georgie tek never has won one; however, they did make the poll at # 22 for playing no one. Bullshit on that.
Half the top teams ahead of us lost after Oregon got it started. Oregon losing opened it up for Auburn and for Mississippi State and Ole Miss. Those 3 teams are beating top-ranked teams several times, while Oregon lost to an unranked team.
Mississippi State and Ole Miss are tied for # 3 in the nation behind # 2 Auburn. All 3 play each other.
Alabama only dropped to # 7. I have seen whiny fans for us whining this morning that we got robbed in the polls. I am sorry but you’d have to concentrate on the greatest player in the land, and not our team to think we belong in the same rankings as the Top 4 teams in The SEC West. There is more to a football team than 1 player. Many football teams have suffered similarly through the years. Get some perspective. On our team, Brice Ramsey again did Far Better than Hutson Mason, whose latest gaffes now include : watching Brice Ramsey mix-up the deep pass with the TGII runs for a long drive and TD, and then coming right back in despite looking like shit before that and being YANKED by Mark Richt and insisting on throwing deep passes himself – like anyone in the world now that it felt like football weather when we woke up to go to the game, came to watch his sorry ass play freaking football.
Hutson Mason threw the worst looking passes again ever witnessed at Sanford Stadium, except the one to Chris Conley. Remind me now please ? Chris Conley has played all 5 games and started the 1st three before coming in off the bench in the last 2 by Mark Richt despite being our best wide receiver not because he dropped any passes because he didn’t, but because Hutson Mason refused to go through his progressions and throw it to him deep, preferring 4-yard passes – which is what the other Chris Conley TD pass was this day against lowly Vandie. 19 times we’ve lost to lowly Vandie and we’ve been playing since the eighteen hundreds. 2 of those are Mark Richt. Besides last year’s debacle by Mark Richt against Vandie, Mark Richt also lost to 4-8 Vandie in 2006, another of those brain fart Mark Richt years where Mark Richt could not bring himself to not be loyal to Joe Tereshinski III and play Matthew Stafford, who was only the # 1 football player in the nation coming to us because his sister was here at UGA and left the same way # 1 overall draft pick by the NFL. Charley Trippi accomplished that and won the NFL Championship Game MVP one of 4 Bulldogs to accomplish the MVP of the championship game in the NFL. How in the hell do you otherwise lose to a 4-8 team here at UGA with all this damned talent, but to bench the wrong players – or, kick everyone off the team you were given such great credit for signing here ?
2 more attrition this previous week now including another kicked-off for shop-lifting charges, turning his back on him. Good riddance, right ? I always have to remember to say that for you since you do not have the guts to type your reply and say it. Not Mark Richt’s fault, but all the credit to Mark Richt, prior to turning his back on him for charges against him, for bringing him here. That’s how that works unless anyone is confused ?
76 all that remains of the 119 signed scholarship recruits who with redshirt could be out there helping Mr. Todd Gurley II.
Sure are a lot of walk-ons we could be giving Scholarships to. Guess we will over-sign again next year now ?
The count is now 14 arrested/suspended/kicked-off just in 2014 and we’re barely into October. We have party season coming-up to get that total up to a respectable Fulmer Cup Championship number, if 14 is not enough for you yet – or, you think you have thought up enough excuses and Good Riddances yet to make-up for all your bragging on Mark Richt bringing them all here, watching idly as they all 14 are arrested/suspended/kicked-off just this year in 2014 mind you so far, then confusing as you try to do punishment with discipline, when there is nothing confusing about either. Completely different as they both are.
Shaq Jones arrested for stealing a car cable and transformer from Wal-Mart valued at $43. That is 0.0000 of $ 3,500,000 Mark Richt was paid to bring him here at great fanfare by you each year. 2015 promises more of the same. And, more of the lack of telling his coveted recruiting class rankings, best in The SEC since he got here 2001 and most NFL Draft Picks to prove the rankings’ averages for Mark Richt here, that they must obey the rules.
Dear ole Dad would have his hide for that.
Instead, Mark Richt turns his back on him. That what you want your coach to do ? Turn his back on the charged, the accused ?
You see ?
That means that Mark Richt is not associated with Shaq Jones.
Only problem with that is that he played in the game the week before last, as we all saw.
14 have been arrested/suspended/kicked-off we know of in 2014 alone, whom you gave great credit to Mark Richt for signing here with us. This now leaves us with 76 of the 119 signed, available for Missouri. It’s good we’re only taking 70, as we only have half a dozen more signed scholarship recruits on the damn roster.
So, right after Florida’s QB who won the game vs the vols Saturday, Sunday morning gets arrested for violence to a lady, Mark Richt’s signed scholarship recruit # 14 in 2014 gets arrested for alleged shop-lifting. The value of the items Wal-Mart says and is prosecuting him for, is greater than the value of the crab legs for Jameis Winston, who still is being defended by Booby Bowden, er uh I mean Jimbo Fisher.
Chip Towers says it was 2 USB cables @ $30 each and 2 other items at $ 13 each for a total of $86, which was more than Athens Banner-Herald thinks he is accused of stealing. Twice as much.
We’re jerking Brendan Langley around again, I see.
What else is new, if you’re not the chosen 1 ?
2006 Vandie could only beat 1-11 Temple, 0-12 Duke, and something called Tennessee State. But, they certainly beat Mark Richt. Fans try to rewrite the 2006 season as great nowadays. 9-4. That’s his average year by the way.
So, let’s try to brag on him and compare him to yesteryear when teams only played 11 games. This season is a 15-game season for the top teams. That, uh, would not include us since we’re more interested in proving Hutson Damn Mason is so bloody great. No sir. No, he’s not.
Chris Conley has played all year. And, Hutson Mason feared his job, so he finally threw it to him, open all season as he is running just awesome routes to be ignored so that his passing percentage could be the only respectable showing he has as a Quarterback, which would not include starting on any other team we’ve played all season. And, that includes Vandie, who also has a better QB than Hutson Mason. Not that we don’t – like in 2006 – we just bench him after the strongest drive of the season. Very disappointing.
So, he has played all season, and Hutson Mason throws him a 45-yard TD pass right after the strong drive by Brice Ramsey. Ramsey blocked downfield, ran out his fakes, and threw the ball better than Hutson Mason ever will.
Hutson Mason did not throw the football to Michael Bennett at all, not the entire game, and he started at Wide Receiver against Vandie.
13 passes this entire season Hutson Mason has thrown to Chris Conley. That includes the 2 TD passes against Vandie once his freaking job was on the line. Not until.
Hutson Damn Mason is dragging this whole team down with him. It’s inexcusable. So, no, it’s not beating up on UGA to have us # 5 SEC team in the polls for beating Vandie this season. As for the rest of the team, our defense was porous, our special teams again sucked, and oh yeah besides Hero TGII, Hutson Mason made our Offense into a Hutson Mason show, checking-out of the call at the line to his own damn number 15 of the 19 plays. Give me a freaking break Hutson Mason. Just tell Mark Richt you WANT TO SEE BRICE RAMSEY.
You know you do.
So, we remain # 13 in the AP Poll, watching half the teams ahead of us, lose.
Arizona was not even a ranked team last week, and they jumped us.
Pac-12 is not The SEC, but then again The SEC West is not The SEC East either, are they ?
Fauot Field again next. Columbia Missouri. That whole state is a waste. I told you I did not think we could even beat the Mississippi Schools in The SEC West. I said that last week. Now, they moved-up in the Polls. We instead tuck our tails again between our legs and act like there is no quarterback controversy. That’s all we’re trying to prove here at UGA this season, and nothing else.
Once in a lifetime player, and Mark Richt wants to prove he’s right about Hutson Mason. A trophy for everyone, and not admit what he had to know prior to the season, as I certainly also said. Didn’t I ?
Missouri is # 23 and # 24 in the polls, so they lose to us and they drop-out of both :
What kind of dumb shit stuff can we pull in Columbia ?
Let’s see now. We’ve played 11 consecutive away games at the opponent’s home field, and won 1 when the opponent makes either the Coaches’ or the AP Poll these most recent seasons.
So, there’s that.
Missouri has no offense and a reasonable defense, and they are not penalized as we are either, but then no one ever is compared to the undisciplined Mark Richt teams – like this one. Discipline, again, is teaching to obey the rules, and punishment is not discipline but the end result of failing to teach to obey the rules. Then, turn your back because they’re charged. The rest of this great nation is innocent until proven guilty. Here, play everyone, trophy for everyone, bench the better and play the worse.
This is not football.
On kick-offs Missouri either returns it all the way down the field, or allows the return against them.
This is not a top 25 team, Missouri. A reasonable defense mid-pack does not a football team, make. Missouri beat South Carolina last week, but who hasn’t ? Other than that, they haven’t played anyone. South Carolina is a team we should NEVER have been beat by. Not in God’s Green Earth. South Carolina should have lost to us, were it not for Hutson Mason calling his own number at the 4-yard line, handed the ball by our Defense 1st and Goal and then looking like a deer in the headlights. South Carolina has lost 3 games already and now faces-off against Auburn after Furman this weekend. South Carolina lost to Missouri, lost to Kentucky for crying out loud, and lost to Texas A & M, who just got beat to by # 3 AP Poll now Mississippi State. Auburn obviously beats them.
# 90 in the nation on 3rd Down Conversions and that’s with Mr. Todd Gurley II
# 82 in the nation on 1st Downs for us and that’s with Mr. Todd Gurley II
# 98 in the nation in passing yards per completion which includes TGII’s 50-yard bomb
It’s really sad folks. Shoot a promising season in the foot losing to South Carolina 1st and Goal from the 4, with a once in a lifetime player, and you twits brag on Mark Richt doing this to this season, again. It’s what we do around here. Pay him $ 3,500,000 annually and make his job the cushiest job on the planet.
You can take that and shove it.
Georgie tek is ranked better than Missouri. That should tell you all you need to know.
We should teach Brice Ramsey to get his feet underneath him, and follow through. We all know he’s a far better athlete than Hutson Mason, but what we want to see is that he takes what the coaches tell him to do and does it. We’ve seen ample evidence of just that all season now. And, all off-season. What we have not seen however, is our coaches teaching him the footwork. If he plants his foot and tees off, folks, this will do it for Hutson Mason. Not and we can continue to trot out coach’s favorite.
Hutson Mason, despite playing once again the whole game, threw 17 passes for 121 yards. Yuk. And, that’s against Vandie, and that includes him being worried and calling his own number 15 of 19 consecutive plays including the 45-yard longest of the season pass to Chris Conley who has played all season folks, too.
Been open all season as well.
We just don’t try to throw the ball downfield because, well, we might get intercepted.
We’re getting intercepted anyway.
On the 4-yard passes and more should have been. Again what I saw was several more that should have been intercepted. 4-yard passes that should have been intercepted.
There is no consolation they weren’t.
They were horrible passes right into the horrid Vandie secondary’s guts, and they could not catch them wide-open pick 6 green, nothing but green and Hutson Mason in front of them.
Faton Bauta was brought in for his one play, where Mike Bobo calls for him to run, despite he too having a better arm than Hutson Mason who plays all of every game.
No mystery defending Faton Bauta with such continuing on-going play calls only for him.
Stephen Rivers Vandie’s back-up QB for reasons I cannot see, was a lot better than Hutson Mason. Maybe it was all the rain Friday that meant we had no place for him to practice ? The vols lost again and now Butch Jones is saying the whole season rests on the next game. I understand the game was on SEC Network. They still do not show live sports’ events like I thought we were getting for all this money for ESPN.
So, another player is kicked-off the team. Again, turn our backs on them :
We remain a long way from being in the play-offs and still do not have a Quarterback. Right ? All this despite the once in a lifetime player. All he did, is prove that he, too, is a better QB than Hutson Mason.
Sheldon Dawson cannot tell the coaches what play to run or which players to play. Well, he can; but he is kicked-off the team for it. Mr. Todd Gurley II can. I presume that’s ok with the coaches. We all apparently, can tell the coaches they are full of shit that Hutson Mason is our damned quarterback, however. Mark Richt has announced on that front, that “anything could happen” as far as all of us wanting Hutson Mason thrown under the damn bus.
Is this our freaking consolation booby prize that Mark Richt signed 119 scholarship recruits for which he was given great credit, by the way, who with redshirt would’ve been playing this season, and that now only 77 remain, while none went early in the 2014 NFL draft. We apparently do not even have a quarterback, since this dimwitted coaching staff of ours thinks Hutson Mason is our best QB like they did when they told us Joe Tereshinski III was better than Matthew Stafford and like they did with Joe Cox when we had that year Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger both of whom could’ve been picked as better quarterbacks than Joe Cox but were neither picked better – and our booby prize for more BAD PRESS is that Sheldon Dawson can go play for Auburn ?
Sheldon Dawson and Josh Harvey-Clemons were 2 of the most heralded of that recruiting class you two both bragged about Mark Richt signing. Sheldon Dawson is a Junior this season. Cornerback. Our secondary ring any bells to you ? Or, you think all we need is a Quarterback ?
Sheldon Dawson is a 4-Star Cornerback ranked the # 11 best Cornerback in America, according to Scout.com and one of their Top 150 best overall players in America.
These guys Mark Richt keeps kicking off the team, he was given such great credit for signing here as recruits by you both and still is, tell Mark Richt he is TURNING HIS BACK ON THEM, not helping them.
vols, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, North Carolina and Arkansas among others all offered Sheldon Dawson a full scholarship, but no, Auburn did NOT.
In the meanwhile the # 6 SEC team in the polls this week, Georgia dropped behind worse than Mississippi State in the AP Poll this week, after the disaster passing game in the vols’ game, another in a long run of disasters in passing by Hutson Mason – the chosen one this season by Mark Richt which NO ONE AGREES WITH MARK RICHT ON, by the way.
So, while you BRAG on Mark Richt’s recruiting of Sheldon Dawson
You are quick to kick him to the curb when he is kicked-off the team too, like you do to all the arrested/suspended/kicked-off players of which now there are 13 just in 2014 alone.
Addition by Subtraction ?
Best of luck to him at Auburn ?
Seriously, if that is all you have to say, why not keep your traps shut ? This makes us look bad to the selection committee, is an on-going blot on Mr. Jere Morehead whoever named a guy Jere. And Greg McGarity has had NOTHING but bad press on and off the field since he brought his LOSING WAYS and ARRESTS/SUSPENDED/KICKED-OFF here, as he too is not in the Top 25 won/lost in the entire Greg McGarity Era here at my alma mater and his.
Your excuses for this mess of Mark Richt being # 28 in won/lost record after 2007, make me PUKE given yet more BAD PRESS for another arrested/suspended/kicked-off 2014. The Bulldog Nation is NOT HAPPY right now with the state of our program on and off the field. Pukes bragging another can go to Auburn provides no consolation to me, or to you dumbasses saying it does.
TheDawgBone.com (Index) of links to articles and blogs on the vols’ game ‘Tween The Hedges shows that the entirety of The Bulldog Nation disagrees with Mark Richt on Hutson Mason. I guess TheDawgbone.com presume all of these are not questioning Mark Richt’s decision. Excuse me, they all do.
“After the performance of Hutson Mason against Tennessee I think it is fair to say UGA has a QB controversy. Mason looked indecisive in the pocket, his poor arm strength stood out and he made poor decisions on throws…I mentioned after the South Carolina game and the Troy game, Mason’s lack of arm strength is startling. Mason simply cannot make the throws that are necessary for this offense to be as explosive as it can be. With guys like Mitchell and Scott-Wesley back we won’t really be able to use their speed to our advantage bcause Mason won’t be able to get it to them downfield…I would prepare Brice Ramsey as the starter and see how he handles a whole game plan and game preparation. If he goes out against Vanderbilt and plays well then you give him the keys to the car kind of like you did with Matthew Stafford. My opinion is with Hutson Mason is we are playing not to lose. With a guy like Ramsey, sure he will make some mistakes, but he is capable of making up for those mistakes with the spectacular. What do you have to lose against Vanderbilt? The last thing I want to see is a wasted season due to an inept quarterback when you have a talent as special as Todd Gurley in the backfield. ”
It’s clear that our fans and all national media are questioning Mark Richt’s decision to go with Hutson Mason, and even more so, the longer this Hutson Mason Experiment is allowed to go on.
“I agree 1000%…after todays game it’s become crystal clear Mason is not gonna lead us to an SEC championship or a trip to the final four. I say we take a shot with Ramsey. With our running game, it wouldnt be asking too much for the young kid to play the role of “game manager”…he would allow us to stretch the field more and provide more of a compliment to the rushing attack. Sadly, we all know Richt wont pull Mason”
“With Ramsey I would be handing the ball off to Gurley/Chubb and then taking play action shots deep down the field to Justin Scott-Wesley and Malcolm Mitchell. Then I would be throwing a lot of passes outside the hashmarks making the reads much more simple. The first time Ramsey uncorks a throw 60 yards downfield in the air to Mitchell or JSW the defense is going to think twice about 8 or 9 in the box.”
“inferior quarterback play that made Georgia’s offense one-dimensional…squeaker victory over a young, modestly talented Tennessee team Saturday at Sanford Stadium. The Vols could [stack 9 men in the box] because, frankly, they didn’t respect Georgia’s passing game. At all. And didn’t need to, unfortunately. As a result, the Vols held the Bulldogs to a dismal 1 of 10 on third-down conversions. I don’t know whether Mason has some sort of arm fatigue or just wasn’t feeling it Saturday, but his passes had no zip and frequently were off-target. He also continued to show the downside of his first-year-starter status, locking in on well-covered receivers while ignoring others who were wide open, and tucking and running (mostly ineffectually) whenever his pocket threatened to collapse. But perhaps Richt and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Mike Boboneed to consider getting [Brice Ramsey] some more playing time…lest the Dogs come to rely strictly on their running game. Yes, Ramsey (who got in on only one play Saturday after Mason had lost his helmet) would be prone to freshman mistakes, but, let’s face it, despite being a fifth-year senior, so is Mason. And he’ll be gone after this year. ‘We had two turnovers that could have turned into points’ [ Mark Richt said.] Georgia got a win that was much closer than it should have been.”
” It gets old [our only goal every year now is our DOWN SEC East] for the Georgia program, but that is the reality with the way the schedule sets up…how hideous they look. Georgia won in spite of a punchless passing attack”
“This evidently won’t be the game that Georgia goes downfield. The tailback or fullback has touched the ball on 29 of Georgia’s 34 plays [to start vs the vols]. And at least at the outset it wasn’t a matter of taking what the defense is giving the Bulldogs: Tennessee didn’t respect the pass at all, stacking the box to start the game. And on third-and-eight on Georgia’s first drive the Vols only had one safety back. Mason couldn’t take advantage…And a couple drives later, when Mason had his…interception…it looked bleak for the passing game…this may be the game Mason needs to pass the ball to win”
” the offense didn’t come out after halftime with…success. Seemingly changing the play calling, offensive coordinator Mike Bobo called five passing plays to start the half. Mason pulled the ball down for a run once of those five plays and went 2-for-4 for 13 yards and his second interception of the game on the other four plays and Georgia would go on to punt in its next four drives. Compounding Mason’s struggles was the fact that Gurley was rarely used in the quarter, including a nearly 11 minute stretch in which Gurley did not have a carry. ‘The defense had a lot of series there, especially in the third quarter, when they didn’t have a lot of grass behind them,’ Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. ‘I thought the defense did a phenomenal job after both turnovers, not giving up any points.’ [Josh] Dawson’s fumble recovery for a touchdown ultimately gave Georgia the win.”
WR Michael BennettOn the passing game…
“We’re doing what we need to be doing. We aren’t trying to force anything, but we’re taking what is given to us. We were taking some shots down the field we just need to execute them.”
“Fact is, Gurley had to turn into Superman, or Herschel Walker reincarnated, because of the inability of the Georgia passing game to make things happen. Folks, without Todd Gurley, the Bulldogs don’t even come close to winning this football game.”
” Hutson Mason didn’t sugarcoat his performance against Tennessee. He didn’t point fingers at receivers, linemen or coaches. He didn’t try and convince anyone that the passing game did, in fact, play better than what the statistics say or what the game film most certainly will show. Quite simply, he was honest. “The pass game is very frustrating. That starts with me,” Mason said. “It just flat out starts with me getting better in the passing game.” With constant one-on-one coverage on the outside and a one-high safety — looks the Bulldogs have seen a lot of this season — Tennessee dared Georgia to win with its passing game. And, yet again, the Bulldogs’ offense unsuccessfully quieted the concerns of its non-existent downfield passing attack. “It was frustrating,” head coach Mark Richt said, unable to wholeheartedly diagnose the passing offense as a season-long problem.”
“Mason is not a gifted quarterback, he is just “good” enough to keep the offense somewhat varied. I was sure last year that he was going to be an average SEC type quarterback…Against top flight SEC teams, Georgia will struggle this year. This is not a top 4 team which is required to get into the playoffs.”
Hutson Mason disappointed by his two-interception performance Saturday

Posted: Saturday, September 27, 2014 8:56 pm | Updated: 10:32 am, Sun Sep 28, 2014.
“Georgia senior quarterback Hutson Mason wasn’t happy about his performance in Saturday’s win over Tennessee. “It’s frustrating,” Mason said. “It’s just, I don’t know, I don’t have an answer for it.” Mason talked after the game like he was the losing quarterback after he didn’t live up to his own expectations.”
“… Georgia’s passing game against Tennessee was a complete mess. They’ve played in their fourth game of the season, with a fifth-year senior at quarterback and senior wide receivers, and they’re still struggling mightily”
“Amen again Tyler…Mason is not even executing game management now. I saw the lack of arm strength in the spring game and the Nebraska game. I’m not sure he’s regressed at all. The opponents just have it figured out. I perceive a growing lack of patience in the bulldawg nation over many things. We need our staff to go with our best chance to grow and win a championship. With that performance against a young physically talented team we better be more ready to take risks on younger more physically talented players and get them experience in live game situations. (i.e. Ramsey, Park or Fauta).”
Michaux: With Hutson Mason in a funk, Todd Gurley comes to rescue for Georgia
“With a passing game that was – oh, how can this be put diplomatically? – ineffective, Georgia was in grave danger of losing to Tennessee…“We came out and got like three straight three-and-outs and everybody was like, ‘We’ve got to run the ball. We’ve got to run the ball,’” Gurley said of the second-half lull. Mason was (again, being diplomatic) not so good. “Without that run game I don’t know where we’d be right now as far as wins or losses,” admitted Mason. “Those guys have definitely carried our team.” But for how long and how far? Plan A is really, really, really good, but Georgia needs to find a Plan B soon.”
“Georgia’s passing offense (162.3 yards per game) ranks 111th in the nation, ahead of only Vanderbilt in the SEC. But perhaps the worst sign is the Bulldogs are averaging 10.14 yards per completion, which is 113th nationally and worst in the SEC. ‘The passing game hasn’t been going too well’ [Todd Gurley II said.] “The bottom line is when you play quarterback you’ve gotta deal with the good and the bad, and right now I’m sure he’s frustrated with not getting many deep balls thrown, and completed, and all that sort of thing,” Richt said.

“Richt also discussed senior quarterback Hutson Mason possibly experiencing a great deal of frustration following his shaky performance against the Vols, when Mason suffered two interceptions and again failed to complete any downfield throws.”
“1. Sometimes it’s unclear whether the Bulldogs are trying to win because of Todd Gurley or to prove they can win without him. Example: Saturday’s third quarter. It opened with five consecutive Georgia pass plays, one of which became a Hutson Mason scramble. The first series yielded an interception, the second a three-and-out. Gurley, who would finish with 208 yards rushing, didn’t touch the ball. Indeed, he carried only four times for nine yards in a quarter that saw neither side score. 2. The passing game got a failing grade. With the Tennessee defense aligned to stop Gurley (also a fail), the way was clear for Hutson Mason to find open receivers off play-action. Didn’t happen. Mason…threw two bad interceptions. “We’re definitely not clicking in throwing the ball” [Mark Richt said.]
I am not into CENSORSHIP and I will be darned but that it seems what I’ve been saying all along since prior to Hutson Mason being named the QB to be the only QB to play any game, that everyone agrees with me now all of a sudden. Don’t you ?
27 Quarterback Rating on this pleasant day with a squeaked-out win over the hated vols is what Hutson Mason turned in for his performance today.
Again, the other quarterback for the other team was so far superior to Hutson Mason’s game managing skills.
He has fumbled in every game now. He threw 2 Interceptions and were it not for Josh Dawson bailing his ass out with multiple fumble recoveries and Todd Gurley II going for over 200 yards, we lose to the really poor vols’ team on a day the clouds were not all overhead.
Mark Richt, please end this Hutson Mason Experiment. 27 Quarterback Rating for Hutson Mason today, and that does not even include his fumble again today.
Kick-offs were poor again today for our team. We started the game with a kick-off which did not even make it to the goal line. It was returned to the 30-yard line and from there a long field goal by the vols put them ahead. Their kick-off was deep into our end zone and we hesitated then came on out. We continue to do poorly on defending kick-offs setting up our opponents’ field position and do not kick-off deep enough. Is there no one on our campus who can kick-off like every team we ever play every week ? Good Lord, Mark Richt. Get with the damned program dumbass.
From the kick-off, Mark Richt sends out our offense and we find Hutson Mason has called his own number twice to run the frigin’ ball, twice, on the opening series. This is the old-fashioned out-of-date complicated, preferring the pass offense we’ve seen now for 14 years here.
4th Down and our best option is call dimwitted Hutson Mason’s number on a frigin’ run play ? Damn it.
Penalties killed us again today. It’s been this way for 14 seasons as well. We had 7 more penalties for 57 more yards for us to what ? Attempt to ignore when everyone expected a blow-out of the hapless vols who have a losing record in football after 2007. Losing record.
So, on this extended 1st possession 4th and Dumb from our own 28-yard line Hutson Damn Mason called to run the ball, we get a penalty on the possession and are 2nd and 17. The call ? Todd Gurley II run. That’s because Hutson Mason cannot throw the ball farther than 4 friqin’ pissant yards. That was the only play we accomplished anything, and not because of the call but because of Todd Gurley II.
The 2nd half was more of the same with again anybody but Todd Gurley II getting the ball. The missed opportunity with this man on our sidelines has come and gone and we suck on offense, folks : Suck.
vols’ quarterback making throws : Our qb not.
10 to nothing now, and frankly if Jordan Jenkins did not tackle his helmet into Justin Worley’s arm as he was releasing the ball, knocking him out of the game just when Mark Richt couldn’t find TGII on the sidelines to put him in, we lose this game.
Hats off to the vols for having a better quarterback than us again today. It’s the same every damn week now.
We cannot even prepare the back-up quarterback. I said we would not bring one in. Well, I knew Mark Richt would not bring in the back-up QB and must have told him that, because Mark Richt did not even prepare the back-up QB to be ready to come in. And, the offensive coordinator Mike Bobo has no clue what play to run when he is forced into service. None. No concept. Just pitiful. Another lost possession when Hutson Mason has his helmet ripped off by the vols, who gave Hutson Mason zero respect today, practicing instead against Justin Worley as they do.
Every team loads the box against Hutson Mason. How obvious is that Mark Richt ? Do you really have no idea how to choose and ready your back-up QB ? Or, are you so afraid of controversy, oh the horror of a QB controversy right Mark Richt ? That you refuse on a day the fans for the vols sounded louder in our seat that we were to me, to tell the back-up QB to grab his helmet and be ready on the sidelines, and here is the play we will run ? Good Lord. How hard is that Mark Richt ? We have no plan. We’re idiots.
Get on your damned knees and Pray to God thanking him for Todd Gurley II and Josh Dawson who together saved your damned bacon today for this Hutson Mason Experiment ruining another season, Mark Richt.
Nick Chubb is a workhorse.
Failure of the Special Teams and the Offense today. If you get any damn solace from beating such a sorry vols’ team, a down program, a team without the talent we have, you’re to blame for our mess on offense and special teams. And, then you run in here and make excuses to me for it all and I do mean all after 2007 ourselves. This is not a Top 25 team and has no hope of beating a Top 25 team.
Did you know that ?
After 2007, this is how we’ve been.
Again today. Clouds on the brain of Mark Richt.
Brain fart ? No. Not a damn brain fart. To have a friqin’ brain fart is to assume that what he is doing after 2007 is working and just today the special teams and Hutson frigin’ Mason had a bad day. Never considered preparing your back-up QB did you Mark Richt ? We saw how prepared you make him when he couldn’t even run a play.
Mark Richt that is on you.
If I were Brice Ramsey, I’d be beside myself right now today. I almost am myself for him, and I didn’t get any scars from the hedges today. Just a pitiful listless ill-prepared football team.
We cannot pass the football. The vols cannot stop the run, so that did not matter; but their QB obliterated our QB. Or, did you not go to the game, since it was only the vols ?
Mark Richt Apologists make me puke.
Game Manager ? That your term for this Experiment – this Hutson Mason Experiment ?
Hutson Mason with Nick Chubb, Isaiah McKenzie, Chris Conley, Michael Bennett, that awesome OL today, Sony Michel and TGII managed to make one 3rd Down Conversion all freaking day long.
vols made 6, and Hutson Mason is not as good a QB as Justin Worley, is he ?
Hutson Mason was called on today for ten (10) rushes. Ten 3-yard rushes and twenty-five 4-yard passes. Hell, just hand the ball to TGII and be done with all 35 of those plays. 1 by the way was a TD pass. A 4-yard TD pass, which is all he is capable of.
Hutson Mason will not even be invited to the Senior Bowl, and no tryouts for any NFL team. His football career is over at this Top 10 All-Time Football Program whose Mark Richt was brought here to have Quarterbacks.
Lackluster preparation, favoritism, stuck in the mud – fumbling and bumbling our way through another season.
All we do after 2007.
Did you notice ?
You’re kidding me that anyone would choose Hutson Mason as their freaking Quarterback after today’s performance.
That horrid 4-yard pass at the 39-yard line today intercepted by the sorry vols’ team was the dead last worst throw I have ever seen in my lifetime. I swear to freaking God, I can throw the ball better that.
OL gave Hutson Mason all day long to throw, again and he is sucky.
TGII made it to 40 Touchdowns now in his 3-year and over Georgia career. He’ll have fond memories here, and me ? What might have been with him and a freaking Quarterback Mark Richt where you call plays that are not the opposite of what the defense expects, but what we can do and who we can be.
Shameful performance by our “coaching staff” today.
The 2nd Half we showed we’re a Pass Happy Offense by coming out and forcing Hutson Mason to take over the game. Dimwitted game plan, and even more so half-time adjustment. Hutson Mason’s pass on an out route in the flats to Chris Conley wreaked. He does not have the arm strength to throw the ball halfway across a 33-yard field, let alone downfield in addition. Why call such a play, dumbass ? Can’t you see what we all know to be the truth that your Favorite Hutson Mason is incapable of that play ? Useless.
Hutson Mason knows it.
What Hutson Mason should do and what I would do were I he, is to go to Mark Richt and tell Mark Richt to play any other QB on our roster.
To open the 2nd half, Mark Richt calls for Hutson Mason to throw the ball out pattern on the left to Chris Conley, and the 2nd play is a deep pass on the right side to Chris Conley, both of which were underthrown by a mile, and resulted in an interception just when Butch Jones had given us the ball at midfield on the kick-off from his arguing a call at the end of the half which was called correctly.
Hutson Mason’s 2nd interception of the day, along with his fumble and his 1 TD Pass on 25 passes of 4 yards each and his 10 runs of 3 yards each.
Nice Mark Richt. Just awesome son.
Why not TGII instead Mark Richt ?
That a better option dumbass ?
Or, better to prove to us that Hutson Mason is great ?
Hutson Mason put the crowd to sleep today.
vols’ fans were animated and louder.
If Peterman doesn’t come in for Justin Worley, the vols win this game.
All the vols’ defense had to do was load the box and wait for the 4-yard pass, and they couldn’t even do that. vols’ defense sucks.
A good QB would’ve done to the vols’ defense what a good QB would’ve done to South Carolina 2 weeks ago now.
Ruined our season.
Bullshit Hutson Mason deer in the headlights from the 4-yard line. That what we pay you $ 3.5 million annually to not even have a Top 25 won/lost record after 2007 Mark Richt ? To prepare that QB to do what he did at the 4-yard line, that will haunt him and make him cry for the rest of entire worthless life.
And, more of the same today.
Incapable of learning anything.
There is no way we should’ve lost to South Carolina Mark Richt.
vols’ football program is in just an awful mess, and has been, and will be.
How bad are the vols ?
In 2005, when we last won The SEC Championship but ended up # 3 of just SEC teams in every poll, the vols put up a losing record 5-6.
After 2007, the vols :
33-41 losing record vols worse than Vandie who is 35-41 after 2007.
We thought that we were doing poorly after 2007, and we are :
# 23 won/lost record 54-26, not counting this season UGA.
Still, as poorly as we’ve been doing with all this talent in-state we did not let the vols come in here and take from us after 2007, # 23 is a marked better record for UGA than the vols at # 84 and Vandie at # 78.
vols have done so poorly for so long that you guys probably do not even recall all the nasty vols’ fans on blogs here in HotLanta, and their horrid nasty-ass football players bragging how friqin’ better than us, they.
It was unbearable for many years.
vols’ football program is marked with having played cupcakes, and when that changed, their fortunes changed, much like Boise State.
The state of Tennessee has no talent. They brag they sign their players nationally.
And, they have raided Atlanta my whole entire lifetime.
Who in their right friqin’ mind would choose orange as their color ?
It looks like pajamas, but not ones you would be caught dead taking the trash out in late, even in the damn dark. Orange. God Almighty : orange.
God Awful frigin’ prison orange.
There are so many vols’ fans here in Atlanta that you would never believe it, and for so long now and continuing they are dormant, gone missing, absent, hiding their ugly heads, nowhere to be found for so long now.
UnRanked in the Coaches’ Poll and UnRanked in the AP Poll, has been a hallmark of vols’ football that y’all probably don’t recall the pain they inflicted on we Bulldogs’ fans bragging how stinking wonderful they are at the cost of our recruits here they coveted since they have no football players in their miserable state.
Even Tee Martin taking all those monies to play for the vols, and even admitting he did saying that was a different Tee Martin who won the national championship in the 1st BCS National Championship Game, did not dampen their just dirty cheating ways and bitter rivalry they made of our program who for so many years the vols simply refused to play. That national championship is as tainted as is the Fulmer Cup, named for all the trash-talking vols’ players they recruited from right here who daily gave us a dose of their bullshit quotes at our expense.
Jamal Lewis from Douglass High here in Atlanta went to the vols and just was unbearable in his quotes in the local rags here about how he said : “UGA only plays there for the Peach Bowl : at TN, we don’t play in the Peach Bowl.”
Jamal Lewis was right about that, because indeed when the vols played in the Peach Bowl they failed to show-up and in fact did not play in the Peach Bowls they were participants in.
Even though Jamal Lewis would later go to Federal Prison released August 2, 2005, the damage he did in giving this headline quote to the press, led their fans here to quote that to us daily. I blogged in Atlanta for many years as BuLLdawg, and my comments when Mark Richt 1st got here were all in support of him. I am not 2-faced; when Mark Richt did well when he got here, I supported him for that; and when instead we started getting arrested/suspended and won the Fulmer Cup National Championship, I came out in public and said that I do not like that and want it cleaned-up, and want to win again now like we used to do when he 1st got here.
But, I took the vols’ to task and still do. The vols’ fans were crawling out of the woodwork here in Atlanta at the time, like cockroaches in a tenement at night when the lights were turned on.
I was as unbearable back then to vols’ fans as I am today :
I do not like the vols. I do not root for such a bitter rival to do well so that we then are considered greater for thereafter beating them. Neither do I nor would I root for Florida, Georgie tek or any other of the trash-talking bitter rivals we play every year. If you think the vols are not a bitter rival of our Beloved Georgia Bulldogs because they’ve done so poorly for so many years, just lose to them and have them actually have a great season, and see what I mean.
You will rue the day not respecting what total assholes vols’ fans are. Hiding in the dark now still, just wait until they show their ugly mugs and inbred hatred of where almost all their good players come from, which is right here.
You think Auburn would not have had any football teams without our players from right here ?
Jamal Lewis, Tee Martin, and Travis Henry who also went to federal prison, played together and have dominated the news about the vols’ trashy football program since.
They would love to be the dominant team against us and out-recruit us for our talent saying as Jamal Lewis did putting us down, and putting the vols up on some damn pedestal, and then going to federal prison.
These unkind years have not been kind to the vols in these areas this season, again, either with all their arrests 2014 too.
Alvin Kamara from right here in Atlanta too, whom some Bulldogs’ fans wanted to play for us as a running back mind you they wanted him, not I, will be the next in line at the vols’ running back position, but not this season. After Nick Saban kicked him off the team in Alabama, he announced he will sit this season and play for the vols next season, playing JUCO now.
Da’Rick Rogers is yet another. Again some Bulldogs fans wanted him here too. Again, not I. He wanted to play for the vols but he as well was kicked-off the vols’ team and went then after that to Tennessee Tech, and he admitted he was kicked-off the vols’ for failing drug tests at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, where Bobby Dodd is also a college drop-out from.
University of Tennessee at ObKnoxiousville.
U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT BEST COLLEGES 2015 :
# 62 The University of Georgia U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges 2015
10-10-1 vols at Athens through today 21 September 2014.
Steve Spurrier the week before last now has a better record head-to-head against Mark Richt with Mark Richt’s Won/Lost Record against Steve Spurrier, both as head coaches head-to-head, standing now at 5-6.
The vols do NOT have a better record against us, if we can win.
You want the vols to brag they better Won/Lost Record against UGA head-to-head after the game ?
All Mark Richt has to do is once again lose for the 9th time in his career here to a team who even with their win over Mark Richt, not even make either the AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll for 2014-2015 season.
vols are such a team.
There is nothing under the sun that would allow the vols to make any Top 25 Poll 2014-2015 season.
That’s how bad the vols are 2014-2015, again, for the 7th season in a row UnRanked.
vols have 6 national championships in football including the BCS win with Tee Martin who was a different guy then taking monies from vols’ boosters to play there.
Baseball 1, Football 6, Men’s Golf 2, Women’s Golf 1, 6 Equestrian which NCAA does not count in weird fashion they hold nevertheless every year, 10 in Women’s Gymnastics, 6 in Women’s Swimming and Diving, 8 in Men’s Tennis, and 5 in Women’s Tennis.
You will note please that Massey has UGA National Champions 1966 :
All by the very same polls they claim their 6 nc by.
vols’ talent is nowhere near in the same ballpark as our talent. Mark Richt has shut-down the border to the vols, and he knows it, and they know it.
vols’ have a horrible passing game this season, not that we do either because we want to play this QB who is # 102 in the nation in passing.
vols do not have our running game, but the vols are good at not having penalties called which will help them here Saturday as will their good defense. Playing just Hutson Mason will play into the vols’ hands, just as it did against South Carolina.
vols fully expect that we shall just run the ball and will pack the box, just as South Carolina because when your QB is # 102 in the nation at yards per catch as Hutson Mason is, you do not stretch the field.
So that part will be more of the same, again, and again wrong-headed on Mark Richt’s part as demonstrated once again to us all live Saturday and what a beautiful day on our beautiful campus, eh ?
Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta both proved they are far better quarterbacks than Hutson Mason ever will be. So would have Jacob Park too, but he says Mark Richt is redshirting him this season. God Almighty Mark Richt.
vols cannot return kick-offs like we do. And the vols cannot defend kick-offs as well as us, which isn’t saying much.
vols punting game as always is sound.
vols are heavily sacked football team this season, and Jeremy Pruitt should have a frigin’ field day against that lousy vols’ offense.
We’re the noon game again this weekend, and that’s hard on us to get up there that early. It changes the whole Saturday schedule for us.
So, I expect the vols to have a good defense and to make Hutson Mason look as he has already looked last season and this season, which is not good – and, once again, where the vols too will pack it in against us since we do not throw the ball to all the receivers we have except for 4-yard passes with the chosen 1 at QB.
All last week, Mike Bobo said there are “MANY REASONS why we’d play our back-up Quarterbacks.” vols are 1 of the reasons.
Still, with the vols having no offense, like Clemson has no offense and unlike South Carolina, this game is a game where Mark Richt might not have our guys ready to play them and I hope I have established that this is a Major Rival who wants NOTHING MORE THAN TO BEAT US.
vols are picked to lose to us by 17 points, and who are 83 % of the bets on ?
Whoever wins, has the winning record against the other all-time in the history of college football.
Damn it, Get After Their Asses !
55-27 after 2007
1-10 since 2006 vs top 25 AP or Coaches these years as visitor
7-24 after 2007 vs top 25 AP or Coaches these years
None of that is on the line this Saturday ‘Tween the hedges where I have a scar from.
It’s just the damned vols. The vols are not ranked this season; they were not ranked last season; they were not ranked the year before either, or the year before that, or the 1 before that or the 1 before that either, or even ranked the year before that. 7 years is a row now the vols have not been ranked.
But, the damned Orange-clad vols are 1 of our Most Bitter Rivals, ask Keith Marshall :
# 1 UGA Rival 50-40-2 Florida
# 2 UGA Rival 54-55-8 Auburn
# 3 UGA Rival 64-37-5 Georgie tek
# 4 UGA Rival 20-21-2 vols
# 5 UGA Rival 47-17-2 South Carolina
# 6 UGA Rival 41-8-4 Clemson
And, there is not 1 of those top half dozen Georgia Bulldogs’ Rivals who would love anything more than to beat us. Auburn went ahead of us in The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry back to 1892 last season ok on a fluke play in a fluke season neither of which shall not be repeated this season. vols can maintain a lead over us only by beating us this season.
Beat Auburn and the vols and none of our 6 Rivals can have a winning record against us all-time.
How damn significant is this game, I ask ?

Bulldogs UNABLE TO PASS the football at a record pace :
# 100 Bulldogs 1st Downs by Offense – atrocious
# 107 Bulldogs Passing Offense – worst in Mark Richt era by wide margin
# 102 Bulldogs Passing Yards per Completions – really all of them just 4-yard passes, aren’t they ?
# 49 Bulldogs 3rd Down Conversions by Offense – just awful
# 56 Bulldogs Red Zone Offense – Hutson Mason settled for 4 Field Goal Tries vs South Carolina
# 71 Bulldogs Penalties Per Game – & at worst possible moment like Hutson Mason grounding call
# 75 Bulldogs Kick-Off Return Defense like the last South Carolina drive to go up by 3 points
# 36 Bulldogs Passing Efficiency Offense – how that bad when all we can throw are 4-yard passes ?
# 81 Bulldogs Time of Possession – amazing Defense sent right back out so much, again 2014
# 37 Bulldogs Total Offense
# 25 Bulldogs Total Defense Problem is Defense ? B.S. our Out-Of-Date Not-Modern Offense sucks
# 115 Hutson Mason Passing Yards
# 103 Hutson Mason Passing Yards per Completion
# 93 Hutson Mason Completions per game. Why Pass when all he can throw 4-yard underneath pattern?
Todd Gurley II scored 3 rushing TD, had 1 catch, amassed 198 rushing yards on 15 carries, scored a TD on his 2nd 100-yard TD kick-off return by Todd Gurley II, and twice shoved Hutson Mason into the End Zone when he was stopped and beat # 16 AP Poll and # 16 USA Today Coaches’ Amway Poll Clemson, who ended last season # 9, and who was said to have a great Defense.
Herschel Walker is the only Georgia Bulldog to ever win the Walter Camp National Player of the Year Award.
There have been 16 Georgia Bulldogs named Walter Camp All-America, the most recent of which is Jarvis Jones who 3 times won Walter Camp National FBS Player of the Week. Other Walter Camp All-America players for Georgia besides Jarvis Jones LB are Drew Butler P, Max Jean-Gilles OL, Greg Blue S, Thomas Davis S, Jon Stinchcomb OL, Joel Parrish OL, Randy Johnson OL, Royce Smith OL, Jake Scott S, Bill Stanfill DT, Edgar Chandler OL, Frank Sinkwich HB, Tom A. Nash E, Joe Bennett T, and Charley Trippi TB.
There were no Walter Camp All-America players named from Georgia last season, on either the 1st or 2nd team.
Walter Camp is one of the most prestigious Awards annually, given to the Top Football Player of the Year – the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award.
Clemson has never had any player who won the Walter Camp Award.
Alabama has never had any player who won the Walter Camp Award.
Georgie tek has never had any player who won the Walter Camp Award.
South Carolina has never had any player who won the Walter Camp Award.
Tennessee has never had any player who won the Walter Camp Award.
Missouri has never had any player who won the Walter Camp Award.
Texas A & M has never had any player who won the Walter Camp Award.
290 yards Rodney Hampton vs Ole Miss 1987 (227 rushing, 28 receiving, 35 KO return)
285 yards Fred Gibson vs KY 2001 (201 receiving, 84 KO return)
283 yards Herschel Walker vs Vanderbilt 1980 (all rushing).
NCAA FBS head coaches make up a group including also Sports’ Information Directors who name the Award.
Some of the previous Walter Camp Player of the Year Award are Herschel Walker, Pat Sullivan, Johnny Rodgers, Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders, Cam Newton, Charlie Ward, and Danny Wuerffel. Todd Gurley II would be Mark Richt’s 3rd Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and Georgia’s 2nd, if Todd Gurley II can keep it up.
He will be a marked man.
Opponents will not kick-off to him, and they will spy on him.
Fairly amazing again that when we returned from Athens, ESPN was running a spot every 15 minutes all day Sunday about the 4 best Performances of the Day, all against Cupcakes, and Todd Gurley II was not even included in the 4 anyone in the nation could even vote on.
Bullshit. Pure unadulterated Bullshit.
Todd Gurley II was given the nod over Kenny Hill Texas A&M.
The Walter Camp Foundation’s prestigious Awards are carefully measured by the head coaches and the sports’ information directors to insure moral fiber.
Todd Gurley II is of fine moral fiber from Tarboro North Carolina, where they do not have a football team and have not had a football team. Many of our top recruits come from both North and South Carolina. He is a Business Major at The University of Georgia, as I.
He is 6′ 1″ and 226 lbs of all muscle.
He was the North Carolina High School Player of the Year 2011, and is only 20 years’ of age.
He is an accomplished receiver with 54 catches already now, and has played here already as many years as Knowshon Moreno. This is his final season with us. He is our Captain. He now has over 2,500 yards rushing.
He averages over 6 yards per carry and over 10 yards per catch.
Perhaps the nation’s most feared kick-off returner, he leads the cheers on the sidelines. Everyone at the game Saturday noticed him on the sidelines, and how not only all the other players came over to congratulate him every one of his plays, but how he was the 1st to lead the cheers for his teammates.
When he came here, he was very quiet. Time has not changed him much. While there were accolades heaped upon Keith Marshall, there were low rumblings of the awesomeness of Todd Gurley II. No one calls him Todd Gurley II, only I.
When Hutson Mason was struggling Saturday to throw completions of 4 yards, he wanted the ball. When Hutson Mason struggled against Georgie tek to fall behind 20 to nothing, he had every touch in both over-times and scored 4 consecutive touchdowns, our only 4 of the game to beat Georgie tek.
He ran 10.7 seconds in the 100 meter dash, and competed # 15 in the World Youth Championships in France. He is named for his father, Todd Gerome Gurley.
He was given a scholarship offer as the # 5 best running back in the nation from Clemson, North Carolina University, North Carolina State University, Virginia Tech, Georgie tek and Auburn. SEC schools were slow on the uptake up in North Carolina and he wanted to pry his trade here, as one of the nation’s best pass blockers.
