Time for the report card on Georgia’s effort Saturday against the Volunteers in Knoxville, Tenn. Rate the team on the following four categories: offense, defense, special teams and coaching.
What grade would you give the Bulldogs' offense?
What grade would you give the Bulldogs' defense?
What grade would you give the Bulldogs' special teams?
What grade would you give the Bulldogs' coaches?

way past time to get quality coaches at uga……………. offense and defense has no clue
I’m a graduate, a fan and a long time season ticket holder. This coaching staff is a mess. The coaching chemistry is horrible. One of many problems is there is no fire, no enthusiasm and no downright fear caused by any of them. One of the top three positions has to be a hell fire and brimstone type guy like Van Gorder. The top three has to be broken up to find the right mix of coaching personalities. Martinez has to go now.
I also agree that it is time to start playing the quarterback of the future. Heck, play all three of them. I doubt that many of us out here care at this point if we go 5-7 versus the 6-6 we are headed for if it means finding our 2010 quarterback. That being said, this team really needs the extra weeks of practice going to a bowl would allow them. This team doesn’t deserve to go to a bowl but it does need the practice hopefully putting in the new defensive coordinator’s package.
This was an absolute disgrace. UGA now has only two honorable options: fire Richt and his entire staff or discontinue the football program.
Everytime I look at Joe Cox, I see Carrot Top.
October 10th, 20094:15 pm
We are as poorly a coached team as I have seen in a long time. We have no clue on either side of the ball. I predict now we will only win 2 more games for the ballance of the year and CMR will be forced to make changes. (Exit Bobo and Martinez). We made Crompton look like Peyton Manning. I just can’t understand our pass coverages, I think CWM does not either. What an embarrasment our program has become. MARK! WAKE-UP!!! or you will become history to our program, bulldog nation will not tolerate this level of football, we’re not Tech.
Sleepless in Athens
At least wehave the Falcons to be excited about. Joe Cox should be benched now that his consecutive win streak has been broken. He was running scared today.Logan Gray wasn’t any better. However, I guess we shouldn’t play anymore freshman who havn’t played yet this year. Might as well redshirt them now.
October 10th, 20094:16 pm
Need a completely new coaching crew. This isn’t bad coaching, it’s no coaching. Richt owes us some money back.
Time to jump ship to TECH.
October 10th, 20094:17 pm
by the way did anyone think of the fact that if you are paying tuition at UGA you are in one way or another paying these guys scholarships?
Tell me again how many All Americans and All State players are the Dawgs team? Where are they all hiding?
Not surprised at all!! I saw this one coming from a mile away. The loud mouthed freshman coach just lifted up Richt’s black mini skirt and gave him the boning we all needed to see. What is this fellow UGA fans???? This team IS!!!! talented but little else to show for it other than a bada** field goal kicker!!! This team lacks everything that a winner in the SEC must attain to take it all the way. I even noticed AJ now just gonna hang on and wait through next year so he can go first round!!! Richt’s program has now jumped off the tracks and we will suffer until we rid of him once and for all!!!!!!! FSU wouldn’t take him back for $1 salary any way!!!! My son’s middle school’s coach has better looking stuff on both sides of the ball than UGA does. TN not that good but their QB looked like a heisman winner!!!!!! God help us all until we reset our program (new coach soon now before its too late) Gonna lose to UF/AUB/GT/maybe Vandy or Kentucky. richt had two national champ teams that never got a chance to play for it all. Saban/Meyer and the gang have shown smart fans the HUGE gap now in coaching between our good guy and their rabid obsessiveness with the game. Richt needs to go to serve in the church and do charity(its been calling him for awhile ,can’t you tell?)
October 10th, 20094:18 pm
WHY CALL AJ OUT THIS IS ALL ABOUT TERRIBLE COACHING. THE TALET IS HERE COACHING IS DEPLORABLE
October 10th, 20094:19 pm
i have always wanted to start for Ga all of my life as quarterback. I have some eligibility left since that got Cox the job can i start coach Ricth….
Cn’t wait to hear Belue on 680 tell us his excuses for the loss. Can’t wait to hear him defend CMR. Thats whats wrong with UGA. Mediocre, average is good enough.
Today it was proven, average ain’t gonna cu it in the SEC any longer.
Hire Cowher today if he’ll take the job, if he won’t take it, hire Gruden. Bring an NFL big boy attitude to UGA, Its time for this mamby pamby stuff to go.
We Are GA, We are here to win a championship is the attitude we need now.!!!!!!!
dear tech1buzz, please learn to spell
yea something has got to change in the coaching staff i mean Crompton looked bad for three weeks and against Georgia he looked liked he been there for 4 years. I mean 5 TDs over 300 yrds are you kidding me. What is this coaching staff doing. Are they in LaLa land . I mean you been at Georgia 7 years caoch Rict you better get it together .
Where’s the leadership on and off the field? That was a terrible game from every conceiveable standpoint…at least from the Bulldogs’ perspective. Terrible…awful…deplorable…it was too poorly played to watch much of it. I give up on the rest of the year.
Get Prez Adams on the case. He did the beat-down on Dooley. He’s the one that can stop this descent into the cellar of the SEC.
The Thin Guy
October 10th, 20094:20 pm
That was a fabulous 53 yard field goal. Man that guy can kick. And the safety. Another blocked kick by defensive mastermind Senior Martinez. And next week is Vandy and they lost today to Army. The French Army. Avoid the rush. Get your tickets today for the Sham Well bowl. UGay was kept in his cage up in Big Orange Country. Was it his choice? Woof. Woof. Woof.
Wow what a GREAT game by the DAWGS. We shut down a below average qb. We did not give up any big plays on defense. We played penalty free football. Joe Cox showed off his powerful arm and great decision making. Our offensive line controlled the game. I am not sure which co-ordinator will be get co-ordinator of the week in college football. We played with so much pride and intensity. Today made me sick!!!!
October 10th, 20094:21 pm
LETS VOTE ON WILLE MARTINEZ GETTING FIRED>>>>>
Enter your comments here
October 10th, 20094:22 pm
Did we win?
October 10th, 20094:23 pm
Surely CMR has to see that his coaching staff is a joke. Willie knows nothing about adjusting to what other teams are doing and Bobo only knows 4 to 5 plays to call. Tenn. quarterback was unpreassured all day. The bootleg was never covered and the one time it was,the receiver was wide open. Of course they were wideo open all day. Get rid of Martinez. The Georgia defense has never been this bad. Come to think of, neither has the Georgia offense.
Eric A Dawg Fan
This is not even the tip of the iceberg yet. As much as I am a Georgia Fan, I am embarrassed to even say it right now. The Coaches (ALL OF THEM TODAY) Sucks. The Offense never came to Tennessee. Coach Richt left the offense in Athens. The Defense really sucks as to be expected. Special Teams tried as they always do.
I’m so tired of this mess……. As much as Mark Richt has done for the Georgia Program, If he doesnt want to get rid of those $%#@ Coaches especially Wille Martinez, then get rid of his ASS TOO, and bring a NFL Coach they have a philosophy that we (Georgia Fans Football Players, and himself) believe and bring this Program back to a dynasty.
Joe Cox may have been great in High School, maybe he should have gotten a scholarship in the State where he is from. He is simply not Georgia Football material. Cox is a Georgia under achiever, and be on the bench. No wonder he was a 5th year and finally getting a shot. It’s because he sucks as a Georgia Quarter Back.
We would be better off with the freshman Quarterback. Moore Sucks, and I don’t know why Cox continues to throw to this CHUMP of a player. The Offensive line needs more work too. This by far the WORST performance I have seen since mark Richt has been at Georgia.
Now next week we have Florida. If Georgia don’t get their SH$% Together by next week, prepare yourself for another beat down. Florida will score 60 plus point against Georgia if they don’t get it together.
Georgia Sucked Today…. Yes I said it Georgia Bulldogs Football Team SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CMR has just signed a 3 year contract to coach at Carpets of Dalton, oh thank heavens
October 10th, 20094:24 pm
Coach Richt has about as much passion on the sidelines as a goat in a dairy barn, none. He looked about as hang-dawg as the entire team and frankly until he shows some enthusiasm or even semi-enthusiasm the entire team will continue to play without passion and conviction. You sure don’t see Spurrier or Kiffin sitting over there imitating Elvis. Is it time for another end-zone celebration?
Why is Willie not fired yet? Mark Richts stock is dropping quickly, he needs to take care of business and handle the defense. Mike Bobo is inconsistent and should be on warning for poor performance… I am glad to see that Logan Gray finally got to play and run a different plan than the one he usually has to run.
I want someone to tell CMR how we feel. If he’s really that tired of us, the fans criticizing him, maybe he will do us all a favor and just quit now!
Save the embarrassment of getting fired. Save UGA from the disgrace and beat downs that are coming. At least if you quit now the losses won’t be on your puffed up record.
October 10th, 20094:25 pm
hey Chris i love you guys who are so concerned with spelling and grammar this is about football, if you want great spelling go watch pbs…. your offence sux and you are loooooossserrrs… Chris notice i mispelled a few words good job….
Hey uga flea bags blame it on the........
Refs again! bunch of losers.
the real OLD GOLD
College Room mates as coordinators = disaster in the long run
October 10th, 20094:26 pm
ESPN said today, that Mark Ricth need take over and start calling the plays in himself…..
October 10th, 20094:27 pm
PissedDawg. You hit the nail on the head about what needs to be done. This pi$$ poor performance may be the blessing in disguise most of us have been looking for over the past 3 seasons. CWM has to go and Bobo along w/him. Might as well get rid of Fabris too. None of these guys show any consistency in the way their respective teams play. This team needs new coaching blood, not hiring from within. Remove them from the staff completely. There will never be any improvement unless there’s an insertion of new coaches outside of the current staff. If CMR does not see this he needs to go too. This has been a long time coming and one only has to look at the way other SEC teams play D. No other team plays D as loose as GA. Cox looked inept after the 1st qtr and the pick he gave up trying to throw the ball out of bounds was pitiful. Then spiking the ball before the half w/one second on the clock and not trying to pass it to the end zone shows how poorly this team is coached.
CMR is a born again christian. He needs to be a born again head coach.
I bleed red & black and today I lost a lot of blood. Willie should have been fired weeks ago. Bobo play calling is sickening. Cox should have been replaced in the Ok St game and never to return. The offensive line can’t block and the defense can’t tackle. The team play has been the same all year with no improvement. NONE!!! If not for some special teams play and AJ we would be 1-5 or 0-6. Someone please stop the madness.
I vote to fire Martinez, Bobo, and especially Richt. He’s the one who has stood behind Martinez this whole time! What a joke!
why is everybody jumping off the UGA Bandwagon
October 10th, 20094:29 pm
why mutt nation?
October 10th, 20094:31 pm
time for Richt to move on. It was a bad move to sign him to a longer contract. Evans should have seen this coming. Weak coach and an even weaker coaching staff. Go coach at some Christian school. We want to win here at UGA!
What Adams should do is petition for UGA to join the ACC, since he’s high on the academic prestige thng. Good timing, as the ACC could dump academically unsanitary FSU off to the SEC.
October 10th, 20094:32 pm
Guys, this was embarrassing. I turned the game off the radio halfway thru the 3rd quarter. Good thing. And by the way…..when was the last time the UGa vs Tn game was not on TV? I can’t even remember such a thing. I think it’s time that some folks drop on the sword for the Bulldog Nation, mainly Joe Cox and Willie Martinez. I have supported both up until today, but it’s obvious something is major wrong. Particularly with the defense. Cox is a good guy, but obviously is not a Division 1 QB. Need to take off the redshirt from one of the freshman QB’s. If they are good, they will be gone by the end of their Junior Year anyway. Oh well, at least I went to school at The University of Texas too, so I’ve got one team to watch for the rest of the year. Can’t take any more of the Dawgs this year.
We are overreacting, i agree we need to fire CWM and Bobo, but if we fire CMR we also lose our watergirl. Our dawgs will die of thirst.
October 10th, 20094:33 pm
I am not jumping off bandwagon….I am not pulling against UGA now….I am still a fan. I just want the coaches to be marched out and shot. Start over.
October 10th, 20094:35 pm
Either make changes or accept being second-class citizens of the SEC. Vanderbilt South, anybody?
October 10th, 20094:36 pm
I never supported Joe Cox! Hell you could suit up any idiot and have him throw the ball in AJ’s direction and he will put up the same stats and maybe better stats if it’s a strong-armed idiot.
I can’t really tell by your posts. Was it close?
Dawg Gone it
October 10th, 20094:38 pm
Well, today says it all…. from coaching staff, players,waterboys NO EMOTION!!!! I wish CMR would show some, any happy or mad. I think the whole team & staff has taken on his demeaner. EMOTIONLESS! We need a fire, some yelling going on & stuff. I agree with others that OC & DC need to go. Way too much talent on this team not to be coached right. Richt go back to the call playing where you belong. CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW????
October 10th, 20094:40 pm
to the idiot we are not jumping of the bandwagon, we just want new drivers….
October 10th, 20094:41 pm
Maybe we should have a BLACKOUT against Tenn Tech. I think that will fix everything. Yup.
We’ve gone from No. 2 in the nation to No. 2 (crap) in less than two years.
October 10th, 20094:42 pm
Richt can’t quit now. He’s under contract to Ford through December.
