Will Nesbitt make the clutch throws against Miami?

 

Five burning questions as we head into the weekend:

 

1. Will Josh Nesbitt make the big throws when Georgia Tech needs them? In the second half of last week’s game, Clemson’s defense basically dared Josh Nesbitt to beat them. Nesbitt was forced to run and forced to pass. He made enough runs and a big throw with the game on the line and Georgia Tech won by a field goal. Miami has enough athletes on defense to give Nesbitt basically the same look. Can Nesbitt make enough throws to keep the Hurricanes honest or will Coach Paul Johnson find another way to make the Miami defense pay?

2. Will Justin Houston make a difference? The defensive end returns to the Georgia team after a two-game suspension. After the season-ending injury to Roderick Battle, the Bulldogs desperately need somebody who can rush the passer. Georgia didn’t get to Stephen Garcia many times last week and it cost Georgia a lot of yardage. Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino is going to look at that game tape and probably see some things he can exploit as quarterback Ryan Mallett makes his SEC debut. If Georgia can’t put pressure on Mallett, he’s  going throw stuff underneath the defense all day.

3. At any point in Saturday’s game with Tennessee,  will Urban Meyer take his foot off the gas? Not only no, but hell no. I understand that when Lane Kiffin accused Urban Meyer of cheating in recruiting (he later had to apologize because Meyer did not cheat) the Tennessee coach basically wrote a check with his mouth that he knew his team would not be able to cash. But back then Kiffin wanted to rally his fan base and a little controversy was a small price to pay in order to do that. But Saturday the bill comes due. Tennessee is an undermanned football team (compared to Florida) right now. But also understand that this game is about recruiting. Tennessee came into the state of Florida and picked off a kid (Nu’Keese Richardson) that the Gators really wanted and thought they had. Meyer wants to send a message to future recruits from the state that it’s probably not a good idea to go to one of Florida’s biggest rivals. You can always expect Meyer to pour it on when he plays Tennessee or Georgia. That’s just the nature of the business.

 

4. How many times will Stephen Garcia throw the ball against Florida Atlantic? I was shocked last week when Steve Spurrier let Garcia throw the ball 53 times against Georgia. Maybe Spurrier has decided that if he’s going to lose, he’s going to go down pitching and catching the ball all over the ball park. South Carolina should be oaky Saturday but then the Gamecocks have to get ready for a Thursday night game against Ole Miss in Columbia.

 

5. How good is Virginia Tech–really? The Hokies played Alabama very tough in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta. But I’m still not sure how good they are. I think we’ll find out Saturday when Nebraska comes to Blacksburg. Virginia Tech has a splendid defense. It always does. But the offense becomes very one-dimensional if quarterback Tyrod Taylor can’t make plays with his arm and his feet. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is a defensive guru, like Alabama’s Nick Saban, and will set up his defense to force Taylor to throw. For ACC pride, Virginia Tech needs to win this game.

A vicious sack is my favorite play in football. Would love to see more from the Dawgs.

Yep. Ol Urbie gave us what we deserved last year, and Kiffie’s gonna get the same. I’ll actually enjoy watching it this time.

Tony, does Urban’s history of pouring it on rivals, leaving starters in during blowouts, and running up scores show any lack of class? Yes, he has had a dominant team for the last few years and everyone talks about Urban and the Gators as the big bad bully but I think if another coach ran up the score with starters during blowouts, the media was kill that coach.

Florida puts up 50, then pulls off the gas. They could score 60+ easy, but Meyer will let up, and give Brantley and the backups some work in an SEC game. Tennessee will be lucky to win 6 games–kiffin’s incompetent and only got this (and other) jobs because of his dad.

As far as running up the score, the only time I’ve watched a game in the Meyer era and thought it was happening and that I wasn’t cool with it was UT at the swamp a few years ago. I’m sure the reasoning would be given that it’s a rivalry game, and we barely beat them the year before, wanted to send a message, etc. All that’s fine and good, but that year’s game I can admit was questionable.

That said, I’ve watched all the games and when we play the lesser teams, I don’t think you can argue we run up the score. Meyer usually does a good job of calling off the dogs when it’s warranted against lesser opponents.

When it comes to rivals, however, he definitely does put the foot on the gas. However, I don’t think it’s as bad as people want to think. Last year against UGA, LSU, and FSU, Brantley and 2nd teamers were in for a good portion of the 4th quarters. Last year’s UT and Miami games had inflated scores that didn’t reflect how much the offense was struggling early on. There was no foot on the gas mentality in those games.

As far as lack of class, I’m not sure that all rules/bets aren’t off when it comes to rivals to be honest. I know it’s gray area, but as fans, aren’t those the games we want to win most? How many versions of the “I’d be ok w/ winning 2 or 3 games a year, if it meant we were blowing out teams A, B, and C” line are out there? From blog comments and conversations at tailgates, beating the mess out of your rivals seems to be on everyone’s minds when those games come up? Can we really then get mad when a team/coach goes out and does what we all deep down want to see happen? Are UGA fans gonna be upset if the Dawgs walk into Atlanta and beat Tech 56-6? What if they do that to UF? You might come on hear and say class this, class that, blah, blah, but deep down, don’t you love doing that to your big rivals? I’m typically not a fan of running up the score (i.e. I don’t buy the Spurrier mentality of it’s their job to stop us), however, I admit when it comes to rivals, it doesn’t bother me nearly as much.

Charlotte Gator,
I agree with most of your points but my take is class is shown on and off the field. I think the media has given Urban a pass for winning so much but to have your star QB in the 4th quarter still throwing is questionable in my opinion.

The media has had such a field day with Kiffin’s out of context comments about beating FL and justified it should be OK to run up the score. Does not make much sense to me?

It’s like calling out Tiger Woods for his behavior on the course. No one dares to do it because the fear the backlash.

I think Nesbitt will make plenty of throws this week. It says a lot about him that he was beat up and exhausted and saved his best plays for the 4th quarter last week.

Too much gets made about scoring or running up the score… just play football. I’m sure Brantley will get plenty of time under center. You can’t take your foot off the gas. It’s only really distasteful when teams start rubbing it in or provoking fights or calling meaningless time outs to score more etc. Just play football to the best of your ability. If that means you beat the other guy by 30 pts… that’s on them to work out.

(1) This year’s Georgia Tech-Miami game is going to be interesting because the two teams are so different offensively. Paul Johnson’s triple-option emphasizing the run vs. Miami’s more pro-style offensive set. My prediction: the outcome will turn which team’s defense does a better job of containing the other team’s offense. For that reason alone, my money is on Tech—-the Hurricanes simply do not see this offense anywhere else. Stopping Tech’s offense is only partly about better athletes and speed; it’s mostly about discipline and playing assignment defense.

(2) Red-shirt sophomore Justin Houston appeared in all 13 games for the Dawgs last season, and put up some impressive numbers coming off the bench. Hopefully, he’s past whatever discipline issues that led to his suspension, and he’s ready to step up. His team needs him. Now.

(3) Take the pedal off the gas? I hope the Gators are focused on doing what it takes to win, not predicting how many points they’re going top score. If the Gators are up 21 or more after 3 quarters, let Brantley get some game reps against a rival. If not Tebow and the first-string offense need to to stay in the game until the outcome is no longer in doubt. Every game on the Gators’ schedule matters this year; this one counts twice.

(4) From what I saw of Garcia against Georgia, he looks like he has the potential to be a Spurrier quarterback. The Evil Genius, however, needs to do one of his better coaching jobs with this kid—-no forcing the ball into coverage, no unforced mistakes. Garcia needs time to grow.

(5) Frankly, Virginia Tech looked better on TV, with a handful of big plays, than they did statistically. Alabama generate 3 times the offense that Virginia Tech did. Without a spectacular kick return by the Hokies and several mistakes by the Tide, this game would have been a lot uglier than the final score indicated.

Yeah, the Vols are in for a good ole “back of the barn” leather beating. But I’m not sure Meyer will be-little himself and put himself on the same level as Lane K. If he does, then he’s just like the mouth coach. Too, I’m not sure that Tn. can place big numbers on the Gators second team and keep the score some what repectable. The Gators second team may run up the score themselves. The Vols are not playing a sub-par UCLA West Coast team Sat.

Mike@8:57—-You will be happy to know that Tim Tebow did not set foot on the playing field in the second half of the Gators’ first game this year, and only played half of the third quarter in the second game. I suspect he will play as much as he is needed against Tennessee. If, by chance, it’s an early blow-out, you will see John Brantley at quarterback for the Gators, but Tebow will still stay in the game until the outcome is no longer in doubt. That’s what starters are supposed to do.

Mike,

I can definitely see your point and agree. The UT game a few years ago where Tebow was still in throwing late was lame and not many people gave him a hard time about it. He should’ve been called out more for that one. I think the ‘pass’ though comes from the fact he’s doing that stuff against rivals as opposed to Charleston Southern, Kentucky, Vandy, etc. Spurrier was notorious for sticking it to the weaker SEC teams and UGA every once in a while, but then struggling to similarly dominate FSU, UT, Bama, etc. It’s definitely gray area and only my opinion, but blowing out rivals to me is different than blowing out everyone else. If he was doing it to Vandy, Miss. St., etc, then I’d have a problem. If he’s going for the jugular against UGA, FSU, UT, etc., then if I’m being honest, I don’t think its classless because deep down, it’s probably what I like/want to see. That’s probably an every fan thing. I’d wager however that UGA fans would feel that way about blowing out UF and Tech, similar to UT fans feeling that way about Bama, UF, and UGA. My opinion though.

I agree that the media has blown up the Kiffin beating UF and singing Rocky Top all night line. I doubt that one really bothered anyone if you read what he said right afterwards. He was obviously kidding. I think the ‘cheater’ line is going to do more to fire people up than anything else. Does it warrant blowing someone out over? Honestly, I think the fact that its a rivalry game warrants blowing someone out, but again that’s just my take. I think that line just adds to the rivalry more than anything else. The ‘kids don’t want to go to UF because WR’s cant go to the NFL because of the spread’ line is also probably getting some run down in FL. I’m sure that one really gets to Meyer because its a recruiting ploy (which obviously he cares a lot about recruiting), but also ignores the fact that during Meyer’s tenure, UF is tied for the most WR’s drafted in the country.

As far as calling Meyer out, if we start running up on the weak sisters of the poor, then I’ll be the first to say its lame and has no place in the game. I don’t think that’s happening, but is certainly possible. If we blow out teams that are rivals, then that’s a different story in my book.

Not Disappointed!

Canes stop run with better defensive line and healthy linebackers including the return of Colin McCarthy. Tech forced to throw and Telemaque picks off two passes, one of which he returns for a touchdown. Canes win 31-17. Gators win, but its not by the 29 point spread they are favored by. Tennessee keeps it respectful at a 27-21 loss. Va Tech wins a close defensive game over Nebraska, 14-13.

Ok, KG, I hear ya. Maybe I should have said Miami has more “talent” than GT. That is true. Nesbitt may be a good “player” but Jacory Harris has much more “talent.” And so on and so forth right on down the line at every position. Got news for you GT boys, a few talented guys but not many. It’s all coaching. Nothing wrong with that, but just be realistic.

Tebow played too long against Troy. (I acknowledge that Tebow is a fierce competitor who probably refuses to come out of the game. And Urban probably wants pad Tebow’s statistics for the Heisman race and for NFL scouts.) At halftime, the game was well in hand but Tebow still played the third quarter and ran the ball a few times.

I don’t care about UF running the score up. But, if I were a Gator fan, I’d be concerned about injuries. Back in 2005, Bama was laying in on Florida when our best player, Tyrone Protho, suffered a career-ending injury on a deep ball to the endzone. It was the fourth quarter and we were up by 20-something. Protho, a receiver, should not have been in the game. Hand it off and run out the clock.

The Techmites go down to Coral Gables and get punked by the rejuvenated Hurricanes…..unless they can keep Miami’s QB from making plays. The team that plays the better defense wins this game.

The Dawgs win in a fugly game. This will be the game that Georgia’s pass rush meets that stationary object they have been seeking. Samuel finally has a big game, and the Dawgs pass when convenient – not from necessity.

Little Lane discovers the Evil side of the Force when the Urban Crier rains points on the Vowels. This game will be a beating, not just a whipping, but a real beating.

If FSU loses to BYU, it will signal the end of an era at FSU and hasten the retirement of Bobby Bowden. BUT, dadgum it! I think the Ol’ Seminole still has one more big win in his bag of tricks. BYU doesn’t suspect a thing…they actually think they’re going to win this game.

Hokies vs Huskers….this looks like a real fugly game. You don’t need to watch this one on TV, reading about it will be an adequate illustration of the glamour of this game.

The offense was horrible and out of sync in the first quarter coughing up turnovers. They turned it on in the 2nd and then Tebow played half of the 3rd. I’d argue he was still in there because he needed to get some work. Week 1, he played for 2 quarters where they ran 3 or 4 basic formations and a handful of plays. A tune-up really. The Troy game was the first time they actually opened up the playbook and I imagine you saw the result of that in the 1st quarter. I think the coaching staff wanted to get Tebow some live work (with success) in a decent portion of the offense before the bullets started firing this week and it counts. All in all, I’d guess Tebow has played around 2 quarters of good quality and meaningful football this season.

Tony, every time I think your blog could not get more pathetic…you get amazingly worse.

Tech ran Miami off the field last year. Did you watch the game??? 457 yards rushing…that is even more than the 409 that Tech got on the pitiful #1 ugag team. Are we to think that Miami is magically that much better and Tech is that much worse??? Your stupididty aside….Tech rolls. Nesbitt is a very good QB and a warrior. He can carry a team and you need to lay off of him.

South Carolina sucks….ugag sucks slightly less than SC but more than arkysaw.

There is no guarantee that floriduh is going to stomp tennerrrrsee. There is no guarantee that floriduh will even beat tennersssee. floriduh has only played high school teams (of course that doesn’t change this week either) floriduh will not get tested in the weak sec and doesn’t play anyone out of conference except fsu.

Doesnt’t matter how many times Garcia throws, SC sucks…they will be lucky if they win this game.

Virginia Tech is a good football team. If you want to ask a question, how good is alabammer…don’t they need to win for sec pride? Tony, you are such a sec homer gomer that it is sick. If the ACC won every game by a 100 points and the sec got stomped every game you would still think the sec is better. The sec is weak as hell….just like last year. The acc will beat the sec 4 out of 7 regular season games just like the acc won 6 out of 10 regular season games last year. The sec is not superior to the acc or anyone else. It is ALL hype.

Compared to the competition in the Gator’s first two games, Tebow gets a better workout in practice. Plus, this is his fourth year so he’s not lacking in live game experience.

At this point in the season, Tebow’s football health is of no concern to me but it seems Meyer takes too many risks. Having been burned by the Protho injury, I am gun shy.

JWalker, Dwyer is listed as the top drafted RB by Kiper, Morgan Burnett and D Morgan have the opportunity to be first rounders. So Miami, while they might have more overall talent does not have more talent at every position. In other words, keep quiet and talk about something that you might know a little about.

This Miami game really concerns me. We’ve beat them four straight times and we really embarrassed them in ATL last year on national TV. I think they want some payback and will be ready to play. They’ve had plenty of time to prepare with the bye week and saw what Clemson did to really slow down the option. 4 keys to the game.

Turnovers – If GT lays the ball on the ground or if Nesbitt throws 2 INT’s like last week, Jackets lose. If we take care of the football, I like our chances.

Can GT get pressure on Harris? – Somebody other than Derrick Morgan has to step up. Morgan will be double teamed as soon as he steps off the bus. Linebackers must make some plays. Morgan Burnett must make some plays in the secondary.

GT’s offensive line? – Got manhandled last week by Clemson. Miami is just as talented. O-Line must open some holes for Dwyer on the dive play and also allow Nesbitt to get outside.

Can GT throw the football? – Nesbitt must throw the football better than last week and someone other than Bebe Thomas needs to get involved in the pass game. We need to run shorter routes to give Nesbitt a chance to complete a few passes early and build some confidence. We can’t count on TD’s from punt returns and fake field goals all year. Our offense needs to step up and send a message in this game. Hopefully we can sustain a few long drives and keep Harris off the field. If we win in these four areas, I believe we’ll win the game. If not, it might a long night.

Go Jackets!!!

You know, when Nebraska romped all over us back in the mid 90,s NCG, it wasn’t what Nebraska did that concerned me! And you didn’t hear Florida coaches bellyaching about Nebraska “running up the score”. They got it corrected and came back the next year and got it done! This “running up the score” mentality thing has gotten so out of hand that Miami’s coach was cryin’ about a friggin FIELD GOAL that Florida kicked at the end of a fairly competitive game at the Swamp last year!!! He only made himself look like more of a loser. If somebody goes out and puts a 50 spot on us, God bless ‘em, but I sure don’t want our coach talking about THEM, I want him talking about US!

Miami’s D line is nowhere close to as good as Clemson’s. Don’t get me wrong, they’ve got plenty of athletes and have a pretty good D. But there is no comparison between the Clemson D line and the Miami D line. Clemson’s got at least 2 first round draft picks on their line.

Gen Neyland,

Very well put sir. I fully expect Berry and McCoy to wreak havoc on the Gator offense (which admittedly hasn’t been tested). If the UT D can frustrate the offense and stymie the big plays, then the Gators will get frustrated by being forced to methodically move the ball in 5-6 yard chunks (Ole Miss 08, Auburn 07, Auburn 06). If that happens the UT offense might not be great, but can find a way to get some points and then all bets are off. A play or two early towards UT, frustration by the Gator O, and then the nervousness related to an unexpectedly close game late could spell disaster for the Gators. If it does turn into a blowout, it will be because the Gator D forced UT into bad turnovers and UF had a big special teams day (similar to last year’s game). I don’t the the Gator offense is going to dominate the game and beat the brakes off UT.

I think this game will be closer than people expect and that UF won’t cover the spread.
