This may the the sloppiest team I have ever seen.

This loss rests squarely on the shoulders of the coaching staff. If Coach Richt replaces Joe Cox with Logan Gray then Georgia wins this one handily. Joe Cox was clearly off his game all day — the few points Georgia scored the receivers bailed him out big time. Bobo’s play calling was horrendous and way too conservative. The speacial teams still have not been taught how to cover a kick-off. The officiating is ruining the game — it’s no longer fun to watch when they make bad calls that unfairly take the game out of the player’s hands. It’s true — Coach Richt cares too much about loyalty — even if it means losing the game.

UGA will NEVER win a National Championship or a big game with Mark Richt coaching! you are kidding yourself if you think different.

I could blame the refs for the loss but the tackling on the kick off and on the last run was horrible. It’s time to start looking at next year. Also, why haven’t Ealey played this year. He is clearly the best running back on the team.

Bobo sucked has a QB how can he call plays! WE WILL NEVER WIN A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP WITH BOBO. BOBO 2 runs & a screen. Cox can not get in a grove with that kind of play calling. Horrendous & conservative are to nice for BOBO. Bottome line he sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where’s the discipline? Where’re the fundamentals? Poor coaching equals sloppy play, mistakes, penalties. Anyone see that today?

When are we going to let the players decide games and NOT Celebration penalties…BTW+ Al Ford was the replay official! He should be put out to pasture!!

The referees are getting way to flag happy. The excessive celebration penalties against both teams was uncalled for. Georgia’s defense did a great job except at the end. The offense was disappointing for the most part. Coaching…sucked.

Poor play calling, poor qb play. We have got to have a qb better than Cox if fact i think any of them on the bench can do better,Why will they not let someone else give it a try.We might not win another game if Cox plays like he did the first half. I think we may have found a running back.
. The defense played good but could not get a stop when they needed one. The refs have got to let the players decide the game. You cannot call such minor stuff at the end of games.That 15 yard celebration cost Ga the game. The defense kept them in the game the first half but willie needs to go.

Terrible play calling by Bobo. Awful, Awful, Awful. It also looks like keeping Washaun on the bench the first month was a bad decision as well. Washaun Ealey needs the ball. He was clearly our best running back today.

Regardless of play calling and coaching, Joe Cox did his job to get it to AJ for the win. The refs took this one from us. Absolute BS!

Can’t wait for some smart person to say hey were 3-2-0 all we have to do is win every game and beat Flordia and we will win the East…. Don’t blame the refs it was a bad call but if the Dawgs hadn’t been so impotent with such poor play it would not have mattered….

Penalties coupled with STUPID mistakes and stupid coaches make for a losing team. The Dawgs will never, ever, win with CMR and his staff. Damon needs to start thinking about cleaning house and if he cannot make those tough decisions then perhaps he should go as well. Martinez and BoBo are absolutely terrible.

To all the Bobo bashers, is he all-world? No. Do I wonder what in the world he is doing at times? Yes. However, when you call two plays in the first two series that have your best receiver in a position to make a play, and your QB can’t get the ball to him, what are you supposed to call? Clearly, we are limited with Cox. The announcers keep talking about his inexperience. Instead of letting him get experience, so he’ll be ready by the bowl game, why don’t we let Gray or Murray get in there? We’re not winning anything this year anyway. We are pretty young on offense at the skill positions. Let’s not waste this much talent, and AJ’s last year next year, on breaking in another inexperienced QB.

Time to get one of the young QBs in there and get him ready for next year.AJ green will only be here one more year.Its time to find him a QB that can get him the ball on the move.He is making Cox look a lot better than he really is.

The defense kept Georgia in the game today. Mark Richt has some Bobby Cox in him staying with Joe Cox when he’s having a bad day. Most of all, Georgia played a good game until it got down to the last 2 minutes when not being disciplined can hurt you and cost you the game. I dont think though that those were excessive penalties at all. The refs blew the calls. Its hard to run that far and cover a kick starting from your own 15. Refs suck.

Richt admitted one time that he was often mistaken in not playing certain players sooner. He said about Verron Haynes who didn’t get to do much till late in his college career. Haynes of the hobnail boot fame. He’s making the same mistake now by playing Cox, King and Samuel. Healy showed some spark then they took him out. They’ll be lucky to win again before Tenn Tech. Bobo has to be Gobo and Willie needs to get nillie and get out of town. Richt seems to be resting on his laurels and maybe not the best judge of talent–coaches or players.

Washun Ealy is a quality back who needs to split time with Caleb king. Richard Samuel was off the chain as a linebacker, let’s move him back. He likes to hit dammit, he sees no whole. He is a bull and he doesnt like daylight. He likes darkness.

Look what Paul Johnson is doing with half the talent?
Thank GOD for AJ Green, or we would be 0 and 5!!!!!
Hey coach, time to let the kid get his feet wet @ QB.
Bottom line, coordinators have to go!
Damin Evans, put your foot down. IF Coach don’t like it, he can go too!

The refs are no excuse! Good teams overcome those calls and stop LSU on four down. Good teams do that and we are not one. Blaming the refs won’t change the outcome but stopping LSU would have. No whining.

Joe Cox is done, give the QB job to Aaron Murray. While we’re talking about this, we need to get an offensive coordinator that KNOWS what he’s doing. We have way too much talent to be looking like this. It’s pathetic…

I knew when Cox got in a decent SEC game that he’d choke. Cox is a QB that should be playing at a school like Charleston Southern. At any other SEC school he’d be 3d string at best. So either he’s not being coached up to his potential (wow whata revelation for UGA football) or else he’s “just a good kid who the HC refuses to bench cause we’re loyal to him.” Which is it?

Don’t forget: BOBO is the QB coach…

Devil Dawg is right. Complete lack of discipline. Orson Charles gets flagged and is back in two plays later. LSU player gets and illegal block on a big play and Miles is in his face chewing him out. We have the God squad running our team and they don’t believe in getting in these kids face. Complete lack of discipline.
