Georgia Tech rolls over Georgia

 

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. It’s Rivalry Week or, what a friend of mine likes to call “Hate Week.” No conference championships are on the line but a lot of feelings are. Some teams could lose a shot at the national championship or a BCS bid by getting beat by their rival. That makes it hurt twice as much.

 

If not for Georgia’s collapse against Kentucky we would have gone 10-0 last week. But for the year we are 89-31 (and yes, we don’t use the point spread) for those of you keeping score at home.

 

Here we go with the next to last Fearless Friday Forecast for 2009:

 

1. Georgia at Georgia Tech: Georgia Tech is brimming with confidence as it goes for its second straight win over the Bulldogs. Georgia, meanwhile, just doesn’t seem to have any answers after last week’s meltdown against Kentucky. Athletically, Georgia should be able to hang around but there is no evidence that the Bulldogs can handle a tough, physical football game for four quarters. That is exactly what Georgia Tech will give them. Georgia Tech 38, Georgia 21.

 

 

2. Florida State at Florida: There will be a lot of emotion on the field before this game. Tim Tebow and Florida’s ultra-successful senior class (46-6) will be playing their last home game. Florida State coach Bobby Bowden will be making his last visit to The Swamp as the Seminoles head coach (Even if he comes back next season, the 2010 game will be in Tallahassee). Florida State’s offense, led by freshman quarterback E.J. Manuel, can move the ball. But the defense just can’t stop anybody. Florida is just too strong. The Gators roll and start getting ready for Alabama. Florida 35, Florida State 14.

 

3. Alabama at Auburn (Friday): Twenty years ago Alabama was ranked No. 2 and headed to a possible national championship when the Crimson Tide was upset at Auburn. But that Auburn team had a great defense and was deep enough to keep from getting worn down. Alabama is on a mission to get back to the SEC championship game and beat Florida. Auburn will make it close early on emotion, but eventually Alabama will get some turnovers and put the Tigers away. Alabama 31, Auburn 10.

 

4. Arkansas at LSU: I don’t have the words to explain how much LSU’s Les Miles needs to win this game. The LSU fan base has turned up the heat on Miles and his staff since last week’s horrific loss to Ole Miss. Arkansas, however, is playing very, very well. Behind Ryan Mallett the Razorbacks have scored on 41 of 42 possessions (32 touchdowns, nine field goals) in the opponent’s red zone. LSU gets the edge because it is playing at home and because it has a sense of desperation. LSU 24, Arkansas 20.

 

5. Tennessee at Kentucky: Since freshman Morgan Newton took over at quarterback, the Wildcats (7-4) have been very difficult to stop on offense. Two weeks ago Tennessee (6-5) got drilled by Ole Miss and last week looked lethargic in beating Vanderbilt (31-16). The winner of this one is likely headed to the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day. That should get both sides pretty excited. This week’s upset special is: Kentucky 21, Tennessee 20.

 

6. Ole Miss at Miss. State: Thanks to Dexter McCluster, Ole Miss is finally playing like the team projected to be so good in the preseason. The Rebels (8-3) can lock up a bid to the Capital One Bowl on New Year’s Day with an impressive win against their state rival. Ole Miss might come out a little flat after an emotional win last week against LSU. But it still has too much firepower. Ole Miss 27, Miss. State 21.

 

7. South Carolina at Clemson: Few teams in the country are playing as well as Clemson, which has scored 34 or more points in its last six games. Clemson’s C.J. Spiller is still in the Heisman Trophy discussion, so look for him to have a big day against a beat up South Carolina defense. Clemson 24, South Carolina 17.

 

8. Virginia Tech at Virginia: It’s been a strange year for Virginia Tech (8-3) but the Hokies have a chance to win 10 games against with a victory here and another in the bowl game. Virginia (3-8) will likely be playing its last game under head coach Al Groh. Virginia Tech 27, Virginia 17.

 

9. North Carolina at N.C. State: North Carolina has been struggling on offense for most of the season but it won’t matter against an N.C. State defense that has given up 30 or more points eight times this season. The Tar Heels finish 9-3 and may be headed to the Chick-fil-A Bowl. North Carolina 38, N.C. State 17.

 

10. Oklahoma State at Oklahoma: Quarterback Zac Robinson practiced this week and could be back in the lineup. A win probably puts the Cowboys (9-2) in a BCS bowl. Oklahoma State hasn’t won in Norman since 2001, when Les Miles was the head coach. Go with the Cowboys. Oklahoma State 28, Oklahoma 21.

BankerDawg,

Great too see that a loyal Dawg/SEC fan can have a realistic post without going all “SEC iz da heezy” all over one’s self. I HAVE repeatedly said over the past couple of seasons that top to bottom the SEC is the best confernce. The PAC 10 is the second best conference and closing. Yes, my beloved Trojans have had an off year this season. Not since Coach Carolls first have we had this many losses. It happens. We will load up again at the feeding trough that is national signing day and Pete will fix those things that are broken and we will resume our annual butt kicking of the rest of the country. (Think OOC) I am happy for the GT fans as they have endured many NOT so successful seasons in the recent past. The ACC is a farily good conference but not a top three conf. DAWGnation, y’all need to ease up a bit on CMR and let the man coach. As previously posted by me: “Y’all won the Sugar Bowl vs. Hawaii and everone thought he was ready for saint hood, now you have a set back and y’all are ready to string him up”??? Ease up on the man, he is a good person and good coach who represents your school very well. GT fans who are bagging on UGA VII: NOT COOL FOOL!!!!!

‘Bama will win today and take care of business against the lizards. They will have their hands full with Texas in the NC game as Colt will be basking in the glow of winning the HEISMAN that should have been his LAST YEAR! NC Game result: Texas 38 ‘Bama 24 SEC fans don’t read too much into last nights A & M game (RIVALRY GAME) as Texas being “weak” on D; they are stout as is ‘Bama but Will Muschamp KNOWS defense and he’ll have sevral weeks to tweek the scheme to slow down Ingram & co. Texas has the #1 D in the country, and A & M is a very good young and coming team that will certainly be making noise the next few years.

Fight On!!! Hook ‘em!! & RTR!!! (Pluck the war chickens!!!)

So many people who complain about the lack of playoff (yada yada yada) in college football than why do you continue to watch?…we have the system we have so live with it….or watch crappy NFL with piss poor games every week that have no tradition, no passion, no rivalry week excitement like college football.

GT will be the most overrated team this year. Option offense is not a long term offensive strategy. Once a team gets it figured out, it’s not hard to shut down. I predict, at most 6 wins for GT this year.

Heros of the game are Wooten, Charles, Ealey, and Curran; however, say goodbye to Willie, Janeck, and Fabris, and hello to Kirby Smart. Bobo goes back to qb coach or offesive coodinator at Memphis.

Either Va Tech or Carolina will beat them at home and just like Bradley said they will probably lose to Vandy. Can you say Mediocre?? Tech fans are so delusional, its hilarious!!! hahaha!!!

SC RULES, I agree with everything you said except for Texas winning. Bama’s D is better than Texas and typically Big12 offenses have a hard time against SEC defense. However Bama’s offense is weaker than I would like. Running game is fantastic but I am concerned about passing. Just in case you didn’t know Bama is 0-7-1 against Texas so I would imagine there will be alot of motivation in this one. Alabama 31 Texas 28. Tough game both ways!

This two-time Tech alum is facing the harsh reality. Paul Johnson’s first year follwoing the honeymoon will be a rough one. Tech will lose to Clemson, Miami, F$U, Virginia Tech, Virginia, and Georgia. That is a 6-6 record, just enough to land in Boise in December. (Remember, you heard it here first.) Fortunately, Johnson can handle the pressure and the 2009 rebuilding year will be but a stepping stone to productive seasons. As much as I hate to agree with Dave Braine, Tech will not see another ten-win REGULAR season in our lifetimes … unless the NCAA allows a TWENTY-game schedule.

For Dogs, the colors were black … and blue
7:40 pm October 31, 2009, by Bill King

Florida defeated the Georgia Bulldogs again Saturday in Jacksonville with a large assist from … the Georgia Bulldogs.

After spotting the Gators two touchdowns in the first quarter, Georgia managed to pull back within four points. But the two bugaboos that have plagued the Dogs all season derailed any chance of staying in the game: penalties and turnovers.

The Dogs had eight penalties in the first half. They fixed that problem in the second half, drawing only one flag, but switched to their other favorite way of shooting themselves in the foot, turnovers, with four.

I don’t think that’s what they had in mind when Mark Richt and his staff have said the Dogs need to play “balanced” football.

Starter Joe Cox was lifted halfway through the fourth quarter after throwing his third pick of the half, and then we got the answer to the question of why we haven’t seen more of Logan Gray at QB this season. He is an absolutely terrible passer. The interception he threw from the Georgia end zone to Brandon Spikes, who literally walked in for a score, should become part of an instructional video on how not to play quarterback.

There were positives in the game for the Dogs, mainly in the second quarter when they showed their resiliency and threatened to make a game of it. While Florida looked on its first two drives like it was going to move the ball at will, the Georgia defense stiffened after that and was doing what it could to keep the game in hand, considering the Gators have Tim Tebow. But the second half giveaway staged by Cox and the Georgia offense put the defense in an untenable position, giving Florida a short field too many times. And Mike Bobo actually called a decent game, mixing up the run and pass and moving the ball … until a penalty or turnover would kill the drive.

Basically, the lack of discipline that has characterized recent Richt teams undercut everything good that they did. It’s tough enough to beat a team like Florida if you play your best football. Make that many mistakes and it’s impossible.

One last thought: I’m sure the idiot fringe of Dogs fandom will blame the loss on Georgia reviving the black britches for the first time in 11 years and breaking out black helmets for the first time in UGA history. That’s asinine. The color of what you’re wearing doesn’t cause you to commit penalties or turn the ball over.

Florida won because they’re the better team. But Georgia made it easy for them with too many stupid mistakes.

Another black day in Jax reveals UGA as second-rate
8:39 pm October 31, 2009, by Mark Bradley

Jacksonville — The game was a total loss, but the lesson imparted need not be. After yet another lost Saturday in Duval County, this much is beyond dispute: Georgia is no longer a major player in its division, let alone the nation.

Mark Richt began his somber media briefing by saying, “Well, here we are again.” And there they were, lopsided losers. It was 49-10 last season and 41-17 this time, and for all the good work Richt did in the early part of this decade, he and his program have been lapped by Urban Meyer. And Richt, once so clever and driven, seems to have run out of ideas.

He tried the color-scheme gimmick Saturday, presenting his players with black helmets after they’d warmed up in the usual red headgear. The upshot of this was to make Georgia look like an Arena league team and to cow the nation’s No. 1 team not one whit. After 11 1/2 minutes, the guys in the orange hats led the guys in the black hats 14-0.

“It’s not the helmet,” safety Reshad Jones said. “It’s what inside the helmet.”

Well, yes. With an extra week to prepare, Willie Martinez seemed even more witless than usual. As bad as the Gators’ first two touchdowns were, the third was an affront to everything Red and Black. Facing third-and-3 at the Georgia 23 with 1:32 left in the half, Florida ran a simple option. Tim Tebow faked a handoff and burst up the middle. He scored the touchdown that put him ahead of the hallowed Herschel Walker without being touched.

“They’re a good team,” said defensive end Justin Houston. “But it seemed like every time we made a bad play, they capitalized on it.”

In the first half Georgia had eight penalties. In the second it had four interceptions. If it was to have any chance against the Gators, it had to play a clean game. Instead it authored another in a series of messes.

If we’re to believe recruiting rankings, the gulf between Georgia and Florida shouldn’t be so pronounced. But Saturday was another installment of men against boys, and it called to mind the barb Steve Spurrier sunk into Ray Goff in this stadium 18 years ago: “Georgia gets all these players — I don’t know what happens to them.”

Players go to Florida and get, to invoke another Spurrier-ism, coached up. Players come to Georgia and are left to their own devices. Martinez is a substandard defensive coordinator, and no other position coach can be said to have done fabulous work. (Unless you count Kevin Butler, who isn’t a coach but who did sire the prodigious punter Drew Butler.)

Said Richt: “We’re 4-4 this season. I don’t think it’s an indictment of the program. I think it’s an indictment of where we are this year.”

Except Georgia has underachieved three times in the past four seasons, and as Richt himself noted Saturday: “There’s no guarantee of a bowl. The question is, will we play a game when we don’t do something that hinders us from being the best we can be?”

The Bulldogs have never lost more than four games under Richt, but they’ve never been 4-4 under this coach, either. Regarding possible changes, he said: “It’s not good to make decisions within minutes of an emotional game. You’ve got to settle your mind and settle your spirit, and then see where you are.”

As darkness fell on Halloween 2009, Georgia was again where it has been too often. The program that has all the resources was left to wonder why it has fallen so far behind Florida. And the ugly truth has never been more apparent: Florida might or might not have better players, but it absolutely has better coaches.

ChrisF;

Didn’t know that BAMA was winless against the Horns. I remember one of the greatest Cotton Bowls I’ve ever seen (can’t remember the date Texas 14 Bama 12) all game long Bama had Texas stymied but to Texas’ credit they kept Bama out of the endzone. It was late in the 4th qtr and Texas’ QB had his bell rung and coach Akers ran out a young and promising Soph Mike Trevorbeck (spelling may be a bit off) he lead the Horns on two length of the field drives in the final two minutes to pull out the win!

Flaskback 2009;

It will only take teams a bit before they figure out how to shut down the option and then Tec is done. (????) Uh, flashback too the 70’s: Bama, OU, Houston & Texas ALL ran the option. Bama had QUITE a run as memory serves! Didn’t seem like too many people (SEC or others) figured it out!!

If you can’t put Kentucky away, that’s just sad
12:44 am November 22, 2009, by Bill King

Wow, that was two really ugly quarters of football Georgia played in the second half Saturday night.

With the apparent focus of a 3-year-old child, the Dogs squandered a 20-6 halftime lead by turning the ball over four times.

How pathetic was it? When the Dogs got the ball back at midfield with just under 2 minutes left in order to tie up the game and Joe Cox proceeded to throw an interception on the very first play, nobody seemed surprised.

Which was uglier, his first interception or that second one? How’s that for a discussion point?

Longtime blog commenter Cuz, with whom I watched the game, summed it up pretty well when he said the second half was like a “greatest hits” of all the bad plays Mark Richt’s 2009 team has committed. Make that “greatest hurts.”

Special teams? Pretty awful, from Branden Smith’s fumble of the opening kickoff of the second half to the fact that Richt and Co. were so scared of giving up a long kickoff return that they routinely gave Kentucky the ball near midfield through a series of poorly covered pooch and squib kicks.

The offense? In the second half they acted like the ball was a hot potato. And when Kentucky made halftime adjustments to stuff the Dogs’ running game, Georgia seemed to be floundering. The Dogs had no sustained drive in the second half, with the only scoring drive consisting of two long passes. What happened to Orson Charles in the second half?

And while the defense was put in difficult short-field situations by the lousy kickoffs and offensive turnovers, the tackling at times was just horrendous. And on that dump screen pass that Kentucky turned into a long run down the sideline for a touchdown to tie the game at 27-27, Willie Martinez’s defense looked absolutely flat-footed.

It’s unfortunately been a hallmark of Richt teams that they have a tough time handling success, holding a lead and putting a team away. And that was even true with teams that were much more talented than this group.

There was plenty of blame to go around, but the bottom line is that this is a very poorly coached group of unmotivated players.

Remember the darkest days of the Goff and Donnan eras? It was that bad.

John Heisman, Head Coach of Georgia Tech, 1904-1919, Won 100 games, lost 28, tied 6. Opening day of practice each season he would describe a football like this, holding the football up in front of the players: He would ask, “What is it?” Before anyone could answer he would say, “A prolate spheriod. That is, an elongated sphere in which the outer leathern casing is drawn tightly over a somewhat smaller rubber tubing.” Then, glaring at the players and speaking in an very serious tone of voice he would add,”Better to have died as a small boy than to fumble it.”

How True!! A & M had several chances to win last night, on any other night they might very well have pulled that one out. Certainly next years game at DKR stadium will be a barn burner as JJ (#1) will be even better than he was this year.

Rivalries especially in state games (UGA vs. GT, Texas vs. A & M, Bama vs. AU or SC vs. UCLA (same city) are always tough ones to call. The better team USUALLY wins but NOT ALWAYS. (UCLA’s win in the ‘06 game come to mind)

As 7 lousy seasons and 4 straight embarrassing bowl losses didn’t ruin Tech’s chances for getting better, one 10 win season that was below expectations followed by a really lousy season will not permanently impede UGA’s chances to become more competitive in the SEC and regain dominance over Ga Tech.
This season is a wake up call. It will force change for the better. CPJ being at Tech will actually force UGA to get better than they would have been. Beating Tech will not be so easy in the future.

So, those who win have the bragging rights and those who lose strive to get better. That is the way it has always been. That is the way it will always be. Tech will win tomorrow night and all of us Dawg fans will be pissed for another year. Tech owned the Bulldogs in the 50’s. Uga has owned them since Dooley came. This coaching staff will have to step up or get out because losing to Tech is not allowed at UGA. Ask Jim Donnan.

So for M and Yellow fuzz and all the rest of that mature tech following this is like mental masturbation getting after us Dawg fans but the worm will turn cause it always does.

At this point I am praying for an amazing upset but just really hoping the Dawgs keep it respectable. I’m not sure this bunch can though. They have an uncanny nack of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory (See LSU and Kentucky).

Bama proved their championship caliber today. Florida should prove their caliber tomorrow and that will make for one heck of a SEC title game. I am pulling for a Nebraska upset of Texas to throw the BCS into heywire. Who then? TCU, Boise State, or Cinncinati (who may not have their current head coach for the title game)? I say TCU should be there regardless. They would easily beat Texas, I believe, based on what I witnessed last night. Cinncinati has a great offense, but no defense. Boise State would not be TCU. So I think TCU would go if Texas is upset. What happens if FSU by miracle upsets Florida and then Florida beat Bama. Who plays Texas? If Florida, TCU, Cinnicinati, and Boise State would withdraw from the NCAA. But Florida is not going to lose to FSU. So it comes down to Texas beating Nebraska to play either Bama or Florida. The rest can only complain. Hate the system, but it is far better than a playoff system which would make games like yesterday, today, and Saturday meaningless. That would be bad for college football and the rivalaries we love so much. Bama for example, would have played only their reserves today, killing the rivalary deal with Auburn. Same for the Gators tomorrow. So watch what you wish for you BCS haters.

The only thing that matters is this…Tech will control the clock in the second quarter and will own the 3rd quarter, adding on 21 points during the long drives that destroys the weak UGA defense. After getting pounded each play in the first half, No. 21 breaks one for 82 yards in the 3rd quarter. He then proceeds to run over each of the UGA players late in the 3rd and all the 4th quarter. And by the way, Nesbit connects three times to Thomas for 212 yards passing…7 for 11 passing, 240 yards. Tech rolls 61 to 28 and beats UGA by more of a spread than GT beat Vandy….Tech will add up it’s greatest offensive game in the Paul Johnson era…695 yards of total offense….Joe Cox has 2 INTs, the running back by committee has two fumbles….4 turnovers for UGA and 9 penalties for 85 yards…the only bright spot is the two kickers for UGA….talk at ya tomorrow at 11:30pm for the victory blog…. What’s the Good Word? We say “To Hell with Georgia…and Piss on UGAs grave”

GT should win. Hope it is a good game and the players on both teams get out of the game healthy. If GT turns the ball over three or four times and UGA does not then UGA has a chance to shock GT.
