Time for the report card on the Bulldogs’ effort Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla., against the Florida Gators. 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?

defense defense that’s our plan if willie can’t stop them nobody can… yeeyyyy….. god what a joke Georgia is ha ha ha ha ha ha ha… insects rule
October 31st, 20097:22 pm
We need new coaches and we need to recruit smarter athletes. Embarrassing.
Ken R. Greene
Next year we should wear PINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike Vick went to jail for Dawg abuse, why not Urban Myer? Eliminate the turnovers and the Offense was fair and moved the ball (some)….Martinez has to go, Ritch start calling the plays.
October 31st, 20097:24 pm
At least the Bulldogs can take solace in leading the country in off the field arrests.
I’m sure this one was the fault of the refs.
ricth will say don’t worry boys were 4-4-0 we got willie and bobo… cox is improving in every game sides he always wanted to play qb for ga…… if we don’t get better on d willie might get a smaller bonus this year….. but i’ve really loyal to them…..

Why does CMR think a uniform “gimmick” will energize the fan base?
WINNING will energize a fan base like no other.
Gimmick’s are a way for a coach to hide what is reality. This team looked and played like fools today.
I suggest CMR take notice of the fan base that is getting tired of the gimmicks and the losing to our rivals and start making changes and demanding results.
October 31st, 20097:28 pm
Go to youtube and see how dirty Brandon Spikes is on poking Washaun Ealys eyes.
MARK RICHT IS A LOSER!
I mean how much of Joe Cox can we take? And Brandon Boykin looked like adeer in headlights.
Putting in Logan Gray was QUITTING! Take those damn black helmets, black pants, and any other Halloween tricks and cram them in a moving truck– the one that ought to take Richt, Martinez, Fabris and Bozo right out of town. Who cares if we lose a 5-star recruit because Martinez might be fired or demoted– we don’t do a thing with them when we get them anyway. 84 yards in penalties in the first half, 3 turnovers in the second. Florida has rung up 90 points on Richt the last two games.
Our defense sucks. Our punt return team sucks. 4-4 sucks. Urban Meyer is a great coach– Mark Richt is not!
October 31st, 20097:29 pm
I am already worried about next year gray is not the answer’ this year is a bust so why not let murray get started on his football learning now rather than screwing up the first of next season or did they find out already that he ain’t the man I hate to say it but alot of the coaches need to go maybe all of them this season has got to be killing recruiting they see what I see they think why do I want to go there with next year looking bleak. You know AJ is going to leave after next year.
October 31st, 20097:30 pm
Ricth was bragging the other day we finished 2nd in the country 2 years ago and 10th last year…. well ge where are the winning records against the big sec rivals flordia tenn etc…where are the sec championships and national championships what we’ve won like 2 sec champ in all of ricth’s years and not even played for the national title and now look at us… pitiful
October 31st, 20097:33 pm
The dog nation is all a bunch of losers. The only school in the nation that can coach talent down.
October 31st, 20097:34 pm
I’m sick! If Martinez isn’t gone after this season I’m done. WITH THE TALENT WE HAVE THIS IS EMBARRASSING!!!!!!!!!!!WE HAVE TO HIRE HE BEST ASSISTANT COACHES out there…..IM SICK OF LOSING TO FLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THE PLAY CALLING ON BOTH SIDES LEFT ME SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SICK!!!!!!!Piss POOR Coaching…..
Why try changing the helments? Leave classic alone! We looked like a 2nd rate version of Grambling State. J. Donnan tried adding a stripe to them and we all know what a genius he was while at UGA.
Something drastic must happen in the coaching ranks – it has gotten to the point that we need change for the sake of change.
October 31st, 20097:35 pm
Water Girl wants to know: Honey, will we be moving to Tallahassee any time soon?
The Florida game fails to qualify as a rival game if only one team shows up. With a bye week, one would think the defense and offense would have been better prepared. I guess it is not important to focus on cutting down on turnovers and penalties. This reflects directly on the coaching, or the lack thereof.
Moral Victory! 2 weeks to prep and they still get their butts handed to them. Meyer owns Richt. Maybe Meyer can hire Richt as a ball boy after the season.
All you yeller insects– YOU PLAY IN AN INFERIOR CONFERENCE. Your overall athletic program is inferior. Hell, you don’t even play some sports every other big school plays because you can’t afford it. Your stadium is antiquated. You beat VT– so what!
October 31st, 20097:37 pm
Black Pants/// black helments……how about good coaching…..you are making the dawg nation look idiots with the uniform crap………coaching changes!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not uniform changes are in order!!!!!!!!!!!
This just keeps getting worse–It is embarrassing to be A UGA fan and witness such sorry play on all sides of the ball. If CMR doesn’t clean house after this season then he should be fired. I looked like Florida was playing Lenior Rhyne instead of UGA. I love the Dawgs–when they play hardnosed football, but I don’t see anything that even resembles UGA football from this inept under coached team. Please listen to the GA fans and get some top notch asst coaches instead of ass coaches.
October 31st, 20097:38 pm
Dear coach Richt, next time you do a triple lindsey off the high dive, you better make sure there is water in the pool. Your supporters are bailing out fast. LOL!

Agree that coaching changes need to be made. Is Evans the right AD? Does he have the steel backbone required to make these changes? Also agree that holding back players (redshirt) just so they can be available in the future is not the answer. Unfortunately, that has been the game plan all year and now it’s too late to insert one (or more) of these guys to really make a difference. Think back to Dooley with Herschel — was going to redshirt him his entire freshman year. Realized in the Tennessee game that Herschel could make a difference. Herschel runs over Bates and the rest is history. Why didn’t the current coaching staff have the b***s to make the same decision regarding quarterback this year? Or was it an AD decision? Either way, heads need to roll!
Curious and Confused
October 31st, 20097:41 pm
This is just sad. Other programs, that I thought we were better than, keep it closer against Florida than we did. Of course, how sad is it that our program is at the level where I was hoping we could keep it close. Something must be done. Offer a truck load of cash to Kirby Smart and get Murray in there for the last 4 games. Nothing left for this year anyway, we should get ready for next year. We have lots of young players, so we shouldn’t waste another year breaking in a new QB.
October 31st, 20097:42 pm
Different game same results…receivers running wide open through the defense, poor tackling, stupid penalties. Guess CMR still thinks all the penalties aren’t a problem. I am absolutely sure of one thing, Nick Saban would never put up with such foolishness, guess thats why he wins, his teams are tough and fundamentally sound our coaches are far more concerned with celebration dances.
Pathetic. Richt should be embarrased. This team had two weeks to prepare and the same $hit over again. Insanity is doing the same theing and expecting different results.
This ENTIRE coaching staff is in over it’s heads. The slide began 3 years ago and has now come home to roost. It’s now as bad as the Goff years.
What a freaking joke Richt has become…..he is CLUELESS. Everything from the uniforms, to the playcalling and management and accountability of his coaches, to the lack of discipline, to the lack of motivation, changing QBs’s, players playing the wrong position….it’s a joke.
We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!We want Pink Helmets!

A week off and the worst coaching exhibition ever. What an embarrassment. Richt has taken this team as far as it will ever go. Ever since Brian Van Gorder left, the defense has been in the pits, tackling is terrible, and the quarterback looks like a AA high school second stringer. How much longer are we going to accept this lack of leadership?
This is the worst georgia bulldog’s team i have seen in a long time. It is time to make some changes. It time to put the redshirt freshman crew in the get ready for next year.time to fire Willie and bobo. Roll-Tide..The real Sec champs
joe cox would be my favorite player if he would qiut that way ritch would have to play murray or zett and get some playing time . Logan is not the man or they would not let him return punts who would take a chance on injury to their real backup
Gimmicks will not work. BLACK HELMETS? What was that. We need to get back to basics, start over maybe. I am so tired of watching this Georgia team. The only thing I am happy about is that Brandon Spikes does not play for UGA. Total classless human being. Trying to gouge the eyes of Ealey. Please someone show that to ESPN. 3rd. quarter Georgia on the 7 yard line, 2nd. drive. Truely a piece of garbage Spikes is.
We may win 2 more games
October 31st, 20097:44 pm
Hell, Ga Tech just scored on Vandy in over 3 minutes. Going to get the bottle!
I saw my first UGA game way back in 1956. For the first time, I am truly ashamed of my school.
For openers, we come out in Grambling “knock-off” helmets, then spend most of the first quarter
acting like a thug high school, jawing after every play and racking up the penalties. What a surprise.
No one expects Cox to be an All-American, but his play today was an embarrassment. As usual,
no consistent execution from the offense or defense, along with several mental mistakes at the
line of scrimmage. Score could have been much worse had Florida’s receivers had their minds on the
play. Nothing has been accomplished this year to make this team less penalty prone and the play
calling on both sides of the ball has been a nightmare.
Maybe a 5 – 7 season will shake some things up in Athens, but if there aren’t more than a few
changes made as soon as we lose to the Boogereaters on North Avenue, there will be more than a few season ticket holder that just might decide to spend their bucks elsewhere.
As a consolation prize, I also have had basketball season tickets @ UGA for nearly 40 years. I
must be losing my mind !!!
What a pitiful show of athleticism. Poor coaching cost us the chance at being respectable from the first face mask.
October 31st, 20097:45 pm
What a joke. I see other programs start freshman quarterbacks, like USC and OHIO.CMR has no clue and either do the others on his staff.I will tell you this if we had to play South Carolina right now they would wear us out.
SuperB in psychology your comments would be labeled displacement. Ga Tech is not your problem. I know its hard but practice saying WE SUCK over and over. It will get easier.
October 31st, 20097:46 pm
don’t cry little puppies save it till tech drives you’re mangey butts in the ground… ha ha ha ha…. you know it’s great u guys have a qb that doesn’t even belong in div 1 but neither do the puppy dogs… ha ha ha ha ha…..
October 31st, 20097:48 pm
Ga Defense reminds me of the bad old Falcon days when the secondary would simply chase receivers around the field and hope to be in position to make a tackle AFTER the catch. Well with one exception, Willie M’s version can’t even make the tackle after the catch. How about that brilliant (what a joke comment from idiot announcer) play call by FL for a dump pass on 3rd and LONG – gets the first down cause we can’t make a tackle (too busy trying to strip the ball).
October 31st, 20097:51 pm
GA 5/7 record. I do not think they will win but 1 more game and no bowl game. Reload and rebuild, Let’s get it together. No more Black jerseys.
October 31st, 20097:52 pm
Just down-right embarassing…Black hemets and pants???? Seems like we spends more time on being fasionable than fundamental fooball. When playing a good team, run the ball(Ealey looks really good)keep it close and pass when needed. 4 passes to Greene??? 3 and 1 pass- intercepted???I could go on and on..what happened to B. Smith on offense. I’m sure he’s disapointed.Blah blah …Super B preach on!!!!
Uniforms looked like North Gwinnett High School. Team looked worse.
We need discipline, basics, technique, coaching…..
October 31st, 20097:53 pm
the team these puppy dogs beat is tied with your gnats
Mark if you are so sentimental to keep Bobo let him coach the quaterbacks. You have to hire a play caller that may actually put in a new contemporary offense. Martinez has to go. I don’t want him to coach Uga out of his house.
I am going to send my donation in early and add a liitle bit to it so maybe we can afford some coordinators worth a darn.Lets all us donors do this so no excuses from Mark or Damon!
October 31st, 20097:55 pm
4th, 9th, 7th, and 6th ranked recruiting classes in the nation over the past 4 years. It’s not the players ability. Someone has to teach them how to play in the SEC. Many still look like they’re playing on Friday nights. Now top receiver is injured. He should’ve gone to BAMA and played on opposite side of Julio. Amazing how undisciplined play is tolerated week after week. I feel bad for the people who spend hard earned dollars to travel to UGA games. Let the stadium be empty for the rest of the season and see if that gets the AD’s attention.
October 31st, 20097:57 pm
oh yeah…and move the leading rusher on the season to LB in the off season. lol. when do they play bama again????
October 31st, 20098:02 pm
I know Michigan would be happy if at the beginning of the season you’d said they’d have the same record as Georgia after 9 games, but what would Mark Richt have said? Think about it.
I didn’t expect anything different. Spot FL 2 TD’s in 1st qtr. No adjustments on D as any good DC would have done but we have CWM. If he doesn’t get canned then why keep CMR? Too little too late is CWM’s signature. He’s gotta go as does his asst’s. Clean house.
Add insult to injury, they replace Cox w/7 mins to go in game. I told my son that he will throw a Pick and sure enuf he dcoes. That was a terrible decision as Cox is a better QB then #6. CMR takes ther blame for that dumbass call. Second rate players w/3rd rate coaching. Get rid of all of ‘em as this has gone on too long w/o any changes in sight. This is embarrassing and noi better than the Goff or Donnan years. Sorry, we’ll never break the glass ceiling w/the current staff esp on the D side.
October 31st, 20098:03 pm
I only watched a few minutes of the game and could tell instantly that it was going to be the same ol’ thing as in the previous weeks/previous seasons….needless penalties, poor tackling, poor play calling, etc. No use watching the ineptness of the team when I could be pulling weeds in my wet lawn, which was not a great choice, but better than watching UGA vs UF. At this rate I don’t need to watch for the remainder of this year or during CMR’s reign.
October 31st, 20098:04 pm
**Georgia is a JOKE! We’ve lost to Florida, what…like 19 out of 21 YEARS? Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE!! Richt needs to immediately FIRE Martinez AND Bobo!!! How many more years of this crap is acceptable?! WHAT A JOKE!**
October 31st, 20098:05 pm
Gimmicky football—-It makes you look even more stupid when you play poorly coached and mistake filled football. Next game let’s go with pink jock straps and cool mint shoulder pads. WhaT a f…ing joke this Georgia team has become!!!
