We’re live from Stillwater (and Part II of Digi-Blog)

STILLWATER, Okla. — Hello. Tim and I made it, and as you can see, so did Uga.

I would’ve posted earlier but I decided to venture outside the press box to take a few more photos, sort of a followup to Friday’s Digi-Blog. Yes, Joe Cox looked fine when he walked by me. But that was the extent of medical examination (or expertise). I’ll be here all game if you want to chat. We have a pool going here on the first reader to post a comment that reads, “Fire Martinez!”

Before kickoff, I do have one question for you: How do you feel about Georgia opening with such a difficult opponent? Personally, I like it, but I’m not a head coach. A team doesn’t want to do this all time, particularly in a conference like the SEC. But my feeling is it’s good for a program and its fan base to play high-profile out-of-conference teams once in a while.

When I asked coach Mark Richt earlier in the week at his Tuesday news conference whether he noticed a difference in preparation and atmosphere with a difficult opener looming, he said: “I’ve always felt like the team was excited to play the first game since I’ve been here. But I do think there’s probably a little greater sense of urgency. Coaches were a little more concerned about starting the game plan for Oklahoma State earlier. When playing a game against a team that good, it gets everybody’s juices flowing pretty good.”

OK. Here are a few more photos. No caption. They’re all pretty self-explanatory: Oklahoma State fan. A buggy. Girls in shorts and cowboy boots. Georgia fans waiting for the team busses.  Players. An upright Joe Cox (without a sick bag or an IV).

Great pictures Jeff and thanks for the Cox update…how does he look in warm-ups? It wouldn’t be a bad idea to throw in Gray every now and then for a change of pace and to give Cox a rest. Don’t look now but the other OSU has let Navy come with in two (2 pt conversion pending).

I think Cox looks flushed and more than a little uncomfortable in that photo. Agree with JP.

Eric C. — Even before Cox got sick, Richt said Gray was going to play some.

JP — That’s the haircut, not the flu.

Great possession. Dogs front line owned the series. And how about these three plays: Pitch to freshman DB-RB Brandon Smith, direct snap to Logan Gray, direct snap to Smith with Joe Cox lining up wide right.

If you hate uga and you would like the beat uga shirt you can order it from “chris’s university spirits” in stillwater. Here’s the #4053770555. I know I am lame tech fan but you can’t pass a shirt up like that. Let’s hope the cowboys win

Millen is way out of his league trying to call a top 10 matchup. There was clearly Pass Int. on the AJ Green play across the middle. Tough call for the refs, but Millen getting it wrong even with instant replay at his disposal? He could be out at ABC before you know it too…

Here’s a stat — assuming OKS doesn’t score in next 51 seconds: Cowboys were shut out in the first quarter only once all of last season (loss to Texas)

We was wondering why Chipper would pick against the Bulldogs and then we learned he’s a Gator! Imagine that! Gator’s has got weak toes so that explains a lot.

Alright… NOW do you people see why Matt Stafford was so valuable???

I don’t think there’s a QB in the SEC who throws a slower ball than Joe Cox.

In what would have been an awesome 3rd and long completion with a Matt Stafford pass, it’s almost picked off because Cox’s ball is so slow, it gives three defenders time to get in position to get a piece of it.

They’re saying just a “stinger” on Evans and he’ll be back

Also… I can see that the wide receiver screen is going to be THIS year’s offensive play that Mike Bobo runs into the ground.

NO MORE RECEIVER SCREENS.

I’d like to see how strong Logan Grey’s arm is, I think.

We just gave Chipper 15M or so for two more years. I’m sure he cares what you think
