Looks like it’s going to be a looooong season

Play-action.

Bootleg.

I just thought I’d throw out a couple of basic offensive football terms that Willie Martinez apparently isn’t familiar with.

As a result, Georgia made Jonathan Crompton look like an all-conference quarterback Saturday as Tennessee repeatedly ran the same basic plays over and over again to great success in a 45-19 butt-kicking.

Not that the loss can be pinned entirely on Georgia’s defense. Because the Dogs’ offense put on one of the most toothless, inept performances since … last week’s first half. No running game to speak of. And this week precious little passing game. You remember all the talk about how Georgia’s offensive line was terrible at run-blocking but good at pass protection? Today they weren’t even good at that, as Joe Cox repeatedly had to throw the ball away or had it batted down. Volunteer defenders spent more time in Georgia’s backfield than any of the three tailbacks the Dogs used in vain. The Dogs basically took the third quarter off.

Backup quarterback Logan Gray did finally get to play quarterback … and showed us little. He did complete his first pass as a Bulldog, to Marlon Brown (who finally got to make some catches), but generally threw poorly.

The only Bulldogs unit that had any positives in this game was, incredibly, the special teams, which accounted for most of Georgia’s points thanks to a 102-yard kickoff return by Brandon Boykin, a blocked punt for a safety by Zach Renner and a long field goal by Blair Walsh in addition to the pick-6 by Bacarri Rambo. Even then, the Dogs still had a terrible kickoff return that saw the Vols begin a drive in Dogs territory.

What else? Missed tackles galore. Tennessee receivers continually wide open. Poor play calling by Mike Bobo. And, again, Martinez appeared to be clueless.

And the dean of SEC coaches was outcoached by Lane Kiffin, who now has the right to say whatever he wants to when it comes to the Dogs.

Kirby Smart, please come home!

Blame this one on Souljah Boy. How can we be expected to compete 1 day after our spiritual leader was arrested?!?

One other suggestion, have our defense play both ways as they scored as much as the offense today.

i think i finally agree that willie needs to go. his inability to adjust is amazing. the first drive they had i could see that silly play action bootleg working a few times but after that we needed to make a simple adjustment and willie didnt see it. he and probably bobo need to go.

our offense is pathetic, but i dont blame bobo, i blame cox. i like the kid and think he will make a great coach one day, but he needs to step aside and let someone else get a shot.

Is Coach Richt trying to get fired? This team just does not look like the best and most effective players are starting. This team looks like they are not prepared. This team does not look like they are ready to play football. I do not see any whizz bang strategy or technique being executed from this team. All I see are individual performances.

This all is very disheartening. Where have the Georgia Bulldogs gone?

With that said, the dawgs hit a buzzsaw- a more determined team trying to prove they belong again. And, guess what, they do. With their new-found confidence, Tennessee will grow into a fine season. Wish I could say that for the Dawgs. It may take a week or three to get over this game, but they will. I won’t give up hope for a strong finish like yesteryear. Oh, and color me blind.

As I’ve said before, I’m not one to yell, “fire the coach!” everytime the Dawgs lose a game but when you continually bring in the talent Georgia has, seasons like this one shouldn’t happen. We’re half way through the year and we’re getting worse. We can’t win every game and can’t win the SEC and MNC every single year but even during rebuilding years we should still be contenders. Something is seriously wrong and you can’t blame the wind this week.

Well………..it seems that we deserve all the things St. Simons has been saying about us. Is there something about the 10 Year Rule in the SEC? It seems that no coach can hold things together for much longer than that. Our problem right now is that both coordinators have got to go, and CMR is too nice and kind to his personal buddies to swing the ax. I hope he does, because if he doesn’t, we will be battling Montana State in the Swamp Bowl. And just one more thing———-as recruiting comes down to the wire, why are we only pursuing these little 160-pound scat-backers? We need LINEMEN! Then we need more linemen, and after that, more linemen.

CMR is also doing a lousy job right now. We have plenty of talent but are the laughing stock of the SEC. Every week we make the opponents QB look like a Heisman candidate while struggling to score points. This is the most embarrasing team i’ve seen at Georgia and i’ve been a fan for a long time. CMR- make some changes or do the loyal fans a favor and find another program.

Play calling- screen pass on 3rd and 4??? Same running play on 2nd and 10 now 87 times in a row. If I know it’s coming, I imagine Kiffen does too. Please stop. That being said Richt has done a great job overall and will continue to do so. Relax. D coordinator away from being right back up.

I am a graduate of UGA (96) and have been a fan since I went to the California game in 1981; this does not make me a “great fan” nor someone who believes I am always right; I’m not. But I did suffer through both our boy Ray, and the savior Jim, so I know suffering.
That said, I was all prepared to tell all you punk-a$$ dawg fans who were throwing in the towel after OSU to suck it after we kicked some Tenn butt. However, I am man enough to admit I was wrong.
The only thing, THE ONLY THING, that has kept us in any of these game is the great players we have, the great atheletes. These guys so obviously have no coaching; they are just making plays because they can. They don’t know where to go on D, or what to do on O. It’s just so demoralizing I can’t even function.
I think, for the most part, Dawg fans are homers and bandwagon types (don’t smirk, you are because you thought the world was over after OSU, the first freeking game of the year). We have had a great run for the last few years, and I’ve come to expect it, like most of you. But we are not FSU in 1995, we have not won everything every year. I don’t think CMR should be fired, I DON’T. He’s a good tactition, but he needs to surround himself with better people. Go out and get an all-pro defensive guy; get a creative O guy; tell the special teams to kick it to the end zone every time. BE A COACH. Listen, I know you love these coaches Mark, and I know they have families, Lord knows I know, but you HAVE to let them go. We have too many great players who are not being coached to waste them on this team. Our recruting will soon dry up; CMR is a good man, he’s a good coach, his assistants are crap though.

I have been a big Mark Richt supporter. RedandBlack may have a point about him wanting to get fired. Maybe with Bowden on his wau out, he sees a way to get back to Florida State. That’s the only explanation I can see in how far this team has gone down in the last 2 years.

They have absolutely no spark, and no heart. When was the last time you saw a Da. defensive player either drive someone backwards or at least stop them in their tracks. Even when they hit someone, they are carried two – five yards down field

There need to be some BIG changes in this staff at the end of the year.

I still love the “dawgs – always have, and I always will. However, this is a poorly coached mediocre football team with one great player. We may end up at 4-8. If we end up with a losing record or at 6-6, I think CMR is o.k. for at least one season, but several assistant coaching changes will have to be made. Even if we end up at 7-5 (a BIG “if” at this point), I think Martinez and our Special Teams coach are history…

At this point Evans and Adams have to go to CMR and request that for the betterment of the program CWM and CMB be relieved of his there respective duty’s. If CMR does not oblige this request the nit is time for this University to move in another direction. No longer can he sit on the sideline looking oblivious to the fact the team is getting ran off the field and seem so care free. It is high time that someone is held accountable. CMR is not capable of getting in the faces of his staff or players. This has been a long time coming. This football team has played soft for 3 seasons. Time and time again at the point of attack this team gets blown up and no where are adjustments. This football team is in a sad state of affairs.

I blame this team entirely on bad coaching on the offense, the pass defense and the special teams. How does a punt returner field two punts in the same game inside his own five yard line? How does the opposing team have receivers who are not even covered open in our end zone. How can a fan call accurately over 80% of the offensive plays before they are run.

This team has been consistently headed downhill on defense since Martinez was named. This team has been headed consistently downhill on offense since Richt turned the reins over to BoBo. Etc. In the business world if a CEO hires and protects VP’s who can’t get the job done, he gets fired. Richt is a good man but a poor CEO.

Richt has had 9 seasons at UGA; including a 4 year head start on Urban Meyer vis-a-vis recruiting, establishing a presence, building a program, etc. What has happened in that 9 years is that almost every other team in the SEC-E has upgraded its coaching staff… and Georgia has made little effort towards adapting or improving. Two national championships at UF during Richt’s tenure should be a wake-up call. The bar has been raised way above the capabilities of this staff. Annual top-10 recruiting classes say the talent is here… therefore the problem must be coaching. A nice man, sure, but Richt is no coach… unless he comprehends and deals with the failings of his program.

I usually don’t write on these boards. Too many reactionary fans and Tech nerds talking about their “superiority”. But this team is a travesty. Looking at our past recruiting classes, we are underachievers. We do have a ton of talent. But I feel that UGA’s inability to keep great players until their Senior year, combined with lackadaisical and just plain poor coaching of said talent (sorry Mark Richt, I love you, but it’s true) will forever keep our program as mediocre. Championships are what fans and players and coaches remember. 10-3 reasons with a mid-level bowl win is not good enough at Georgia. Sorry, but it’s true.

With what’s happening on the field right now, I see next season and as a rebuilding season. It’s painfully obvious that we haven’t recruited well on either line. It’s obvious that we have a stable of fast players that don’t bring physicality to SEC play on defense. It’s obvious that our coaches do not coach our style of recruits to the type of game we should be playing. We are not a “between the tackles” offense. We are not a physical “tampa 2″ defense. Yet we continue to pretend that we have the players to make those schemes happen.

Aggressiveness is gone. Our o-coord has no balls for playcalling. Our d-coord can’t understand what another offense is doing, or how to adjust. Our spec teams rely on walk ons and freshman. Why is B-boykin not on offense? There’s just too much to critique. Too much to worry about. Change is needed at a few key coaching positions. Period.

Next away game, break out the red pants. Have the players play with UGA on the sidelines. Something! But it’s time that we get excited about Georgia football again. Not cautiously optimistic about our chances of possibly beating Team X. But genuinely excited about how our team plays and how they carry themselves.

Willie must go. He must be fired during the season to shake up the team. Put Garner as interim DC. Mark should take back over the play calling. Maybe they get into a fight like the Assitant hc and head coach in waiting did hear in Tally. Our defense creates no offense for our defense and great teams have their defense make plays. Does our special team know where to catch a punt. It is the little things that shows were are not being coached well. Running gasers is not cutting it.

earlier this week i blogged, rare that i do, and i wrote to not lose hope. that we may pull things together and have a turnaround like we did in 2007 after 2 early losses. however, i have never been on martinez’s bandwagon. i thought that after the 2007 season, when he seemed to do more pressure, closer man coverage than laying off receivers, stop the 3 man rush w/zone coverage leaving big gaps to throw to, that martinez turned a corner in 07 and stop playing the bend/don’t break conservative approach. last yr and this yr has been mostly a return to his 05 and 06 defensive scheme.

bill, i agree w/you that how many times can an offense run the same thing, over and over, and defense not adjust. i think only about 2 defensive series did we try a lil more pressure and play more up on the receivers.

martinez has got to go, not demoted, but has got to go.

my dad, while we watched this game, said it’s a blessing in disguise that this happened. finally, martinez may be gone, or soon gone. let’s take our medicine now and be better either later this yr if M’s gone or next yr if he’s gone. we’ve won too many close games in spite of his defensive approach that should not have been that close. a few loses come to mind that were close because we could not get away from 3 man rush/give up 3 rd and >5 yrds to go and easy first downs to keep their offense on the field.

i’m still a true bulldog fan!!! proud to be a dawg!!! will not give up on the players, but coaching and/or scheme has got to change. we still can win more games, shoot, even win out possibly, with better coaching. fabris, too, possibly bought some employment time for finally going for a punt block.

i’ll still wear my bulldog gear. proud to be a dawg and proud of our tradition. will take this loss humbly, hope dawgs turn their attn to vandy and not linger on the losses, learn from them, but not let it ruin the year.

thanks for letting me vent, y’all. Go Dawgs!!

If CMR does not fire Willie, then his a$$ needs to be fired. I’ve always been behind CMR, but maybe he’s in over his head. A team with less talent, a brand new coaching staff and the worst qb in the country comes in and does that to us. That is unacceptable! Can you imagine what florida is going to do to us.

If he’s given the ultimatum that Willie and Bobo need to go, he’s not going to do it. He’ll leave or be fired.

I am glad we are spending the weekend in Atlanta. I would be embarrassed to to go to church tomorrow morning in TN and hear all the laughter. TN fans were down on their QB, but we made him look good today.

Neigher the GA defense nor the offense came prepared to play football. As a result, TN controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage. I lost confidence today in GA defense and am close to losing confidence in the GA offense. Let’s just get by this season with perhaps a six and five record and look to the future.

That was a typical pathetic display of Defensive Coaching. Not that our offense did well, but at least they were playing a sound defensive unit. UT ran the same play with repeatedly with roaring success for crying out load. It’s inexecusable to let Crompton put on a clinic. Flacid, deplorable,trepid, and completely bewildered are the words that come to mind when I think of a Martinez defense.

Good old floppy c*ck. Floppy c*ck Mar-Ti-Nez. Floppy c*ck Mar-Ti-Nez.

Why does Richt just stand on the sideline like he has been heavily sedated. I’m sorry but the fire that Richt injected the football program with has most certainly extinghuished.

Maybe I should shut up and give the coaches a break. Maybe we’re just due for a bad season.

SAME CRAP, TOSS TO THE LEFT..TOSS TO THE RIGHT…PLAY ACTION…I CAN UNDERSTAND IF YOU HAD A REALLY GOOD QB BUT USING THIS OFFENSE GUARANTEES THAT YOU ARE ONLY USING HALF YOUR TALENT.

Is it the coaching? Is it athletes not progressing from freshmen to juniors/seniors? Somebody at UGa needs to take a look at this.

We are as poorly coached as any UGA team as I have seen. I have been watching UGA football for over 40 years. Martinez has no clue, and neither does Bobo. What is the story with the OL and run blocking? This is a team in total disarray. Mark will need to make wholesale coaching changes at the end of the season, if he fails to do so then Mark must go. Bulldog nation will not tolerate this level of football, we’re not Tech. I predict now we will only win 2 more games maybe 3. As I type this I am watching Alabama and Miss. It is a joy to watch a college football team play good defense like Ala. By the way, did anybody see us throw a deep ball to Green? I guess that play requires too much thinking for Bobo. I just don’t see how CMR puts up with this mess, in the corporate arena some heads would be gone due to this level of performance. Come on Mark, act like a CEO and fire some people, or the board of directors, (Bulldog Nation), will replace you. Your being paid $2.5 million EARN IT!!

Penalties, poor discipline, not being in the right position to even make plays – It all boils down to coaching. If CMR won’t let Willie go then Damon Evans has too.

Where are all the Blind Homers with their DAWG colored glasses on? What did CMR show up with today? WTF, I saw your post and I noticed how your standings went lower and lower. This team is not worth $hit. Top 5 recruits or not. This team QUIT today. Did you hear that? They QUIT on CWM, and they QUIT on the SACRED CMR.

CMR in a presss conference says… “That TENN team is truly special. Afterall they held UF to something like 23 points. We played our hearts out today, nevermind the 50+ missed tackles in the first half alone. Never mind that we made Crompton identical to Tebow Jesus himself.

Are we going to blame the defense today? The offense? When are you all going to start blaming the coaching? That is why we just had our A$$ handed to us by an inept UT team. We once again were unprepared to play. Our 12 play offensive playbook did s$hit. I successfully called the Freakin screen pass 4 out of 5. UGA sucks, and it is not just this year because we are playing alot of young players. NO, we suck because we are playing like CRAP, and because we are coaching like CRAP. The only game we are winning the rest of the year is TENN Tech. We don’t have the QB or the offensive imagination to score points. We also don’t have the BALLS on Defense to make plays.

Here is a message for #95 Owens… instead of concentrationg on Twitter, maybe focus a bit more on the F___ing game. Your draft stock is dropping rapidly, what with you constantly jumping off sides You are lined up right over the ball, and still cannot keep your FAT A$$ from jumping offsides.

CMR’s ship has sailed. He actually appears to me to DARE UGA administration to fire him!!!! Why do we get talent but fail on finding a great coach?

UGA announces they have fired Richt, Martinez, and Bobo. In their place, Evans happily announces that he has, in fact, just signed my grandmother. Grandmother is believed by many to be able to do a better job than previous coaches. Said Evans, “He kept saying his grandmother could do a better job. It’s worth a try…and cheaper.”

Grandmother has been recently been mentored by Tony Dungy.

I have to congratulate UT, for a great game, game plan, and exectution. Second, to all those that said UGA would be average at best this year, let me apologize, you were right.

Now, Send Willie packing, stop playing players who get beat and quit. Lose 3 yards, rather than the ball. Send Bobo packing, and let Searles be the OC. Get rid of the bad now, and bring in someone good to replace them. We can’t run the ball, fine, spread out the offense and run it and shoot it If that is what we have to do, then do it. We can’t knock anyone off of the ball. Everyone is set for the predictable play calling. No huddle, wear the defense of the other team out, at least make them guess a little. I was totally surprised, we were down by 20 points, and taking 43 seconds a play, letting Tenn set the defense at will, to what we showed.

Having said that, the other team wanted it worse than we did. The other quarterback’s game plan expsoed our weakensses more than ours did thiers. We did look good on special teams, as far as I am concerned, we scored 19 points on special teams and defense. Our offense gave up 7 points.

This was the worst UGA display since South Carolina 95, or Fla at Sanford Stadium.

Good things, We finally got to see another All American UGA reciver play.

Butler was great

Boykin was great

Walsh was good.

Cox was bad, line was bad, defensive backfield was terrible, again. Go Dogs, beat Vandy.

The Dawgs have way to much talent to be this bad. I am finally on the bandwagon–they need to fire Willie Martinez. They made a bad UT team look good. Very few bright spots on D (Rambo?). Lousy tackling. Inability to stop the bootleg. Receivers open by 15 yards CONSTANTLY. Against a team that just booted its leading receiver. We are one of the richest athletic depts in college sports… and we underpay our coordinators, and get what we pay for. Time for Evans to strong arm Richt into firing Martinez, and then give him a blank check to hire some better staff, and reward those that earn it (like Rodney G).

I think the criticism of Bob is less warranted. Sure, the O looked bad the last 2 weeks–but we faced two excellent defenses. That being said, the offense lacks polish, the O line can not run block, Samuels seems to fun straight into tacklers and then fall down, and the schemes/play calls are unimaginative. And we overreact. Sure, Berry is dangerous, and they had a fair bit of pressure, but we still should have been able to throw the ball deep. Could only help the run game.

With respect to Fabris, the special teams are pretty good BUT they need to work on kick coverage. I think we need some more players from the two-deep on coverage. And on returns, we need to coach the returners a little better on when NOT to field the ball. Otherwise, returns are pretty good. Punting and field goal kicking are outstanding. The kick blocking is great.

I would start looking for a new DC and fire Martinez and most of his staff at the end of the season. I would try to salvage the season BUT if and when we lose to UF (and as things stand, that game will be UGLY… as in the Spurrier at UF days), I would pack it in and plan for next year. Start playing the QB of the future (not sure who that is) in a rotation with Cox. Put Bobo on notice and begin scouting for a replacement just in case.

At least we have Drew Butler! CMR must make some staff changes at least during the offseason or he’s going to have some serious heat. It has become painfully obvious that Willie at a minimum needs to go, and it’s probably also a good time for Bobo and Fabris to go. We have too much talent to be coached this poorly. Tennessee ran the same basic bootleg rollout over & over and we could not adjust. The gap between us and Florida & Alabama is growing quickly. How is our offensive line playing so poorly and am I the only one who noticed how much bigger physically LSU’s line is compared to ours? The writing is on the wall folks and it’s time to end the excuses. I will always respect CMR and hope he will be here long term but it’s so frustrating to see him let this staff continue too long when the best coaches (Saban & Meyer)make the necessary changes when needed and have stronger staffs.

I have seen teams suffer because their talent is young. But I have never seen anything like today. The players have no idea what they are doing. The plays are all run out of “base” formations. The really scary thing is, we did not have the fumbles today, we did not have the turnovers, we did not have the stupid penalties….we just got beat…humiliated. I refuse to listen to one more “home team” post game show where they tell you that CWM is not really doing that bad a job, but other coordinators had more talent. Other coordinators used the tallent they had and made them look good. If your QB is struggling, schedule us, we will make him look GREAT. This is beyond reproach. This is beyond defense. This has to stop.

Even with the loss the dawgs still have a good shot to win the SEC. If LSU can beat a Tebow-less FLA then UGA has an easy Vandy game followed by an off week to prepare for a winner take all match with FLA. Richt and Bobo are good Christians and will win because of that.

It boils down to this: Richt either has to fire Martinez and Bobo or be fired himself. He cannot allow the program to suffer because of blind loyalty.

I’m sick and tired of seeing other coaches in the SEC come in and win national championships (ex. Meyers and Miles) in their first, second, third year, and in the nine years under Richt we are going backwards simply because he more concerned about not hurting the feelings of his DC and OC.

If we had followed the cool-aide drinkers’ course of action (which is no action) we would still be coached by Ray Golf or Jim Donnan. When we would complain about them they accused us as being disloyal and not true fans of Georgia. Here they are again defending the indefensible. Making the players the excuse for the lack of execution on the field. Considering the fact the players are recruited, coached, and disciplined by those same untouchable coaches it makes no sense to give those coaches a pass. It appears they favor a life time appointment for coaches.

I personally like Coach Richt. But, to me, this about a football program and not one man. He is a good man but I am loosing confidence in his ability to lead this football team to a higher level. I wish it were different.

I also warned others to watch out we have a history of being lit up by UT QB’s. Many said I was a fool and reminded me how we shut down the clausen’s. I reminded them that they played when we had BVG and the one Clausen that did play against Willie threw for 310+. Yeh I had not clue what I was talking about.

Also said the biggest problems on this team player wise are Cox, Jones, Miller and Evans. Anybody want to argue that now?

Think about this…only a fantastic play by Curran and a Martinez-esque defensive performance by Arky separates this team from 1-5. (though a BS ref call also keeps this team from 4-2)

Absolutely pathetic. This team seems to be spiraling downward and out of control. I have never seen so many blown coverages, soft spots in the zones, missed tackles and assignments, or lackluster performances. The lines are inept on both sides of the ball when they should be a strength. The defensive backfield is incredibly inept as well. The running backs cannot find daylight and go down on first contact while the opposition continues to gain 2 to 4 yards after contact on nearly every carry. They have many players that are playing their hearts out but they are obviously poorly prepared and playing mostly undisciplined. The coaching staff is failing the team miserably. I have tremendous respect for CMR and feel we are fortunate to have him but he must come to the realization that he is either part of the solution or part of the problem. The organization should reflect the personality of the leader…

If CMR does not get rid of half the coaching staff at the end of the year then he needs to go as well. This was awful. I’ve backed CMR the entire time, but I am now second guessing myself now. The Dawgs are still and will always be my team. I’m just real dissapointed in them right now. There is just way too much talent to look this bad. It’s not the players which only leaves…… coaching. Things have to change quickly or recruiting is going to take a nose dive.

We will be lucky to get to 6 victories this year if we continue on this path. This tired group needs to get it together and beat Vandy.

Tell me what is wrong with THIS picture ?? WHY would YOU put these people in KEY positions ???

McClendan (a receiver) is our RUNNING BACKS coach.

Right now we are the worst Georgia Team in over a decade. Maybe one of the worst I’ve seen in my 44 years as a fan. No heart as well. I know the offense was inept and the play calling atrocious (What’s with trying screen passes and running when they’d been blown up all day?) but for the Georgia Defense to give up that many points to a Tennessse offense that couldn’t tie its own shoelaces with any other team they’d played? Their backbones are jello…couldn’t tackle an eighty year old in a walker or cover a pinhead with a beach blanket. There are notable exceptions on both sides of the ball but I have a motivational tool. Not a single player wears the G on their helmets until they earn it….goes for the coaches as well….just plain red shirts. Perhaps nothing will help this team or the coaches but unless they start playing Georgia football it is going to be a loss to Vandy and a massacre in Jacksonville. Ugly.

As a lifetime fan of the Dawgs, I have to say that I’m embarrassed by the poor showing at Tennessee today. Tennessee is a second rate program at best this year and they made Georgia look like a sandlot team. Although I admire Coach Richt as a person, I have never thought much about his coaching ability. Today, he verified that he is not college coaching material. He should quit coaching and go into evangelism, where he can make a real difference.

As for the dogs for the rest of this season, I shudder to think what is going to happen. I won’t be watching.

Goodbye and good luck.

I mean, seriously…lining up wrong on kickoffs? Fielding punts inside the 5-yard line? Overshooting a receiver and letting an 8-yard pass go for 45 yards? Your coaches should be embarrassed at how they let your players down.

We just got embarrassed by a Tennessee team thats not that good. A 200+ year old institution with endless resources, no excuse not to be an SEC powerhouse year after year. Especially with a head coach who has had time to establish his program. Martinez and Bobo are an embarassment to SEC football. The fact that these two underachieving coaches were ever allowed to call plays for the University of Georgia football program makes me question the overall leadership. A head coach worth his salt would not have allowed Martinez and Bobo to stick around this long. If your not winning ball games, you make adjustments. As the leader of the program, its the head coaches job to find personnel thats up to the task. What are we waiting for? Im a truly embarrassed alum.

Why do you pay coordinators to sit in a booth and watch the game if they aren’t going to make any adjustments?

As a recepient of two degrees from UGA, I feel certain I have the school’s best interests at heart. I am not a fair weather fan and would cheer for UGA if they never won another game. But this is disheartening. Not so much the coaching but the level of bitching from every person on this board. Perhaps UGA really just does not have the talent right now. Or, perhaps all of these negative comments have merit. We have been embarassed by Tenn. before and probably will be again. However, all of the arm chair quarterbacks out there…what do you suggest that Damon Evans should do with this program? Richt has been one of the best and most consistent coaches in the country for almost a decade now. Where would we be without him now? This is not blind loyalty by a fan, I just don’t know why we can’t give Richt one last chance to right the ship.

Even Curran seems to be catching the disease. The truth is, except for the first year after Van Gorder left, Willie’s defenses have been inconsistent at best, terrible at worst. He should not make Richt fire him. He should resign.

4. Our O-line is getting worse each year…that’s Stacey Searles
5. Our offense pathetically called and none of our QB’s are SEC ready…that’s Bobo.

team STILL has a losing record in the conference, and still behind us in the East. This ship can
be righted and it will be in the off-season – the problems are too glaring to not fix. We made
Tennessee look like world-beaters today, but I hope that nobody thinks that they’re really that
good – we’re talking about a team that got ZERO votes in the polls. ZERO. No respect at all.

CMR is the sweetest underachiever in college football…and I’m sick of it. Will UGA ever play smash mouth football on defense again? Remember Erk Russell? Remember VanGorder? Remember when we had one of the most feared defenses in the game? Pssst – these types of DC’s are out there, can we PLEASE go get one!?

And don’t get me started on Bobo and the most boring, ineffective offense – period. This is nothing new – the inconsistency, the lack of creativity (or what seems like basic football knowledge) and passion. CMR and his band of merry men are beginning to take on the image of a talent wasters in my mind and that breaks my Dawg-loving heart.

After living in Atlanta for 25 years, I have always been amazed at the attitude of Dawg fans. You act as if you are some national powerhouse. The only thing you consistently do is recruit great players and send them to the NFL. Playing in college is about team and pride. You have selfish individuals -Moreno was a classic example. You are are basically an NFL farm team now.

In retrospect, H Walker was the worst thing that could have happened to you – its made a generation believe they have a better than average team. Check the stats for three decades – you are middle of the SEC pack. Full stop.

We have Vandy and then two weeks to get ready for FL. GA must find a running game, must find a strong safety, must get pressure on QB’s. Too early to mail it in the rest of the year. Too much talent to be 6-6. Too much tradition to quit supporting. Too many memories of underdog teams going to Auburn, Jax and winning. Fight like hell the rest of the year then get a quality DC and an OC in January. GATA

This team is horrible. They are just a few plays from being 0-6. I mean we have had to fight to the end with subpar teams as much as we have with good ones. And UT is a subpar team. A midseason shake up could be a good thing with the termination of Martinez and/or Bobo. But we all know the “good guy” we have at the helm wouldn’t hear of it. I know you love your friends/coaches Mark Richt, but what about the thousands of us who support you and your program? Don’t you owe it to us as well.

Unless major changes are made I will not be renewing in March and just become a TV fan at most. I am tired of leaving after a 1 1st down first half like last week.

I’m sure Richt is thinking more about tomorrow’s Sunday school lesson than the possibility of firing, demoting or benching anyone involved with this program. I am so sick of this crap.

I griped about CPJ calling the kid “stupid” after a penalty on national TV, but now I totally get it. He’s a prick and will beat us again because Saint Richt refuses to hold ANYBODY accountable for anything.

1. Congratulations to the Tennessee coaches, players, and fans. You waited a long time to rub someone else’s nose in it. We served up a grand opportunity for you today.

2. Tech fans – you are right…..crow all year. Your team is better, your coach is better, and you are on a roll. Enjoy it…..you’ve earned it.

3. Georgia fans (an I am one), face reality……we are no better right now than a bottom third SEC team. Below average performance, below average coaching, consistently doing things underperforming organizations do (self-inflicted wounds, indecision, unwillingness to change, etc).

4. I love Coach Richt and he has done a lot for the team……bottom line, just like in business (and don’t think for a minute that this isn’t business)……we (yes, the tax payers of Georgia) pay you $3.0mm a year to produce results). Show me the results right now……and please don’t tell me about SEC Championships and road victories. You got paid for that……ask a publice company CEO how well fond rememberance of two 2007’s financial performance serves you in today’s market. That’s right…..these boys are like highly paid CEOs. You can’t have it both ways…..pay me the dough and love me whan it goes well and give me a free pass when I don’t perform cause “we’re developing young men here”. Come on, you don’t expect people smart enough to actually fund this activity to buy that crap do you?

Georgia is the “WORST COACHED TEAM” in the BCS. If Mark Richt can spin this and make more excuses… I’m done. He needs to put the blame where the blame lies … at his door and the door of every coach in the program. He’s got to say “we were outcoached and outplayed”. Outcoached and outplayed by a rookie coach and a senior citizen. Can you believe the state of the Georgia program? The thing I’m most concerned about is “NO HEART, NO PASSION, NO WILL TO WIN, NO LEAVE IT ALL ON THE FIELD”. If I could qb when there’s no pressure and soft coverage on every play, I could look like a great qb. I’m sick to my stomach with the state of this georgia team.

Oh, if I had a daughter, sir, I’d dress her in white and gold,
And put her on the campus To cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son, sir, I’ll tell you what he’d do–
He’d yell: ‘TO HELL WITH GEORGIA!’ Like his daddy used to do.

Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum, and Sugar three thousand pounds
A college bell to put it in, And a clapper to stir it round.
I’d drink to all the good fellows, who come from far and near.
I’m a Ramblin’, Gamblin’, HELL OF AN ENGINEER!

LSU went 7-5 last year… I wonder if people were howling for Les Miles’ job.

I think Richt is a great coach, but I agree he needs to surround himself with better people. Martinez has to go. I haven’t been a Martinez detractor, but there is no excuse for Compton to have a highlight-reel game against Georgia.

That said, I would rather be a Georgia fan and watch the team finish 3-9 than be a sad-sack, acne riddled, chum-muncher tech fan. There are worst things than watching the Dawgs lose, and that’s being a bottom-feeder adolscent with a constant jealous envy that wrecks you year after year.

Awww shucks...

October 10th, 2009
5:53 pm

This game finally did it for me. I am absolutely sick of this poorly coached talented team. We have great talent. There is no doubt in my mind. That talent is the only thing keeping us afloat. It really comes down to some really simple things. And CMR must fix those things if he ever wants to be a top-tier coach. It’s up to him. The life of a team comes from the coach.

1) Emotion- I am so sick of seeing the stoic face of CMR. Get fired up. Show some emotion. Show on the sidelines and in post game interviews. Get mad. Get happy. Get something! Call out the bad calls. Applaud the good plays and throw something on the bad, even if its a cup of water onto the ground. Do SOMETHING to show the kids you care. How did you save 07? Emotion. Dig deep and find out how to express it. Every coach shows it but you. If I hear that awww shucks crap again I am going to hurl something at you. Why? Because you wont do anything about it.

2) Fire CWM- He has to go. It’s been 3 years too long. The stats say it all. His D is terrible, but we have good players. It’s not the kids, it’s him. Fire him. If you are having trouble doing it, try these approaches. 1 ) stand next to a canon with him and yell “fired” as the canon fires. 2) Ask him if he like Earth Wind and Fired! Do it. Do anything. Or we will push for the same to be done to you

3) Fire Bobo. Sorry dude, that offense is TERRIBLE. It was terrible with a #1 and #12 pick in your backfield. It will always be bad as long as he runs it. He was an average QB and is an average OC. We have never had that “thing” since he has been calling the plays. I watch other teams and think “damn, why don’t we do that”? I am sick of asking that question. You should be too.

That is it. See, 3 simple steps. If you don’t think the team needs to feel the passion for winning, then you sir must go. You don’t get it. If you don’t get that these kids play because of passion, then beat it. We were all excited when you started. Okay first year, great second and always close from then on. Don’t get comfortable because it will suck to go somewhere like Minnesota like Tubby did. You’re on top, now act like it.

xxooxx,

If Richt doesn’t see the need for wholesale staff changes after this sorry excuse for an effort, then it may be time for a Fire Mark Richt website. Coach Richt’s first obligation is to make his team better not protect his friends. Since the Alabama game last year something has gone awry in Athens and doesn’t seem to be getting better. At this rate we’ll be lucky to finish 6-6. The talent is there to do better than this and if Saban or Meyer and their staffs were coaching it they would be. Richt deserves the grief he’s going to get this week. And if he doesn’t like it he can either makes changes or leave. I’m quickly getting to the point where I don’t care either way but something needs to happen.

Most of you on this board really need to get a life. Your whole life revolves around football and most of you get so bent out of shape when your team loses. Try spending some quality time with your family and perhaps attend a local Christian church on Sunday instead of worshiping the “dawgs” every week. So what if the dawgs lost. It is not the end of the world and those guys on that time could really care less about any of you. Most of those guys in football will be in poverty within a few years after dropping out of college anyway.

Ga. looked like an average team that if they played a good game they could beat most SEC teams. But boy was I wrong. I can’t figure the dawgs out. Whatever their problem is I hope they maintain that problem when they go to Atlanta in Nov. to meet my Jackets.

After the GT-Clemson game, all my UGA buddies were howling at me that if not for 2 one-in-a-million ‘gimmick’ special teams plays, GT loses. Well, we won on 2 clever special teams plays. And they weren’t one in a million chances. My UGA friends just happened to be mathematically challenged. If not for 2 low probability special teams plays UGA gets blown out (A 100 yards KO return, and 53 yd FG are pretty rare). That’s the difference in coaching. CPJ makes plays to win. I’m not saying CMR is a bad coach, but he is making some decisions to hurt his team. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.. If you remember, Les Miles tried the same fake FG play against you guys last week.. didn’t work so well.

Problems: UGA doesn’t have an SEC tailback yet. The QB has everything except an SEC arm. The coaches are running the offense as if they had Stafford or Greene or Shockley, along with Moreno or Brown or Ware…they are in denial. We need to spread the O and focus on short passes to our excellent receiving corps and backs out of the backfield–big-12 style. We have a Big 12 D, so we may as well convert the O as well. Go Dawgs.

That was a pathetic performance from the staff thru players. Our offensive line couldn’t block Lowndes County. Willie Martinez can not and never has been able to make adjustments. We are not improved at tackling (Brian Evan couldn’t take me, Prince Miller couldn’t cover me) nor do we have any type of pass-rush. If Richt is too loyal to his staff and won’t make any changes, then the change needs to be made at the top. I like Coach Richt and I know he is a good man, but develop a team that strikes fear in an opponent. Send Bobo back to Jax State. His play calling is horrible. It’s the same 5 plays week in, week out.O Only play we are good at is the 53 yard field goal. Monte Kiffin was licking his chops to play us. Now is the time to get the younger guys more pt. Let Logan get more snaps, if not all of them. Spread the offense, run more no huddle, anything. There is no bite in these bulldogs!

I have been a fan of UGA football since the late 70’s and I have never seen players play as they have this year. We all know that they have talent, but where is there heart. Coach Dooley didn’t always have top ten recruiting classes but he used the talent he had and won. When he had to make a tough decision concerning an assistant coach he made it. Now is the time to review each area of the team. If you see areas that have declined then make the necessary adjustments and turn it around. This team can win but first they must have coaches leading the team in making the necessary adjustments. Don’t do like Willie did and throw your playbook in the air. This simply shows that you have no idea what is going on and then you cannot lead them. We have problems on both sides of the ball but common sense tells you that defense wins ball games. As long as we keep Willie then we will continue to struggle. Let’s make the change now at this position and show the players and the fans that you are striving for improvement. Do it for the team.

OK, for reasons I don’t understand no one seems to get this is a rebuilding year. I don’t know why that’s so hard to admit. The team is down. It’s time to bench Cox and insert the QB of the future, whoever that might be, and put the sophomores and freshmen on the field. We are playing for 2011. We lost 85 percent of our offense. A bad offensive line doesn’t get better because it’s a year older, a clueless D coordinator will remain clueless. CMR is probably the best head coach uga has had, including Dooley, but he’s got to remove the blinders and know changes must to be made before the SEC East passes him by.

For the guy that thought we should have run the field goal unit in with 1 second remaining and the clock about to start once the chains were set, you have got to be kidding, the confusion and trying to change your personnel at that moment would have been impossible, what i thought should have been done however is to complaing to the officials about the playclock not stopping with 3 seconds left after the 1st down, and then we could have spiked it and possibly had a chance at the field goal…

Just one question….why does Bozo like the pass so much? We run a pass play on second down no matter what the yardage. We were in 2nd in 3 or 4 several times today and tried to pass. Just pick up 2-3 yards on the 2nd down and then and then 2-3 on third and Shazam….its a first down. I don’t think in 5 years we have run the ball three times in a row starting on 1st down. Unless of course we are in the stupid power package from inside the 10 or if we decide to try and play ball control late in the game when everyone expects us to run. I bet every defensive coordinator laughs their arse off watching film of our offense.

John, you said it well. Please understand this though. We all understood going into the year that this is a rebuilding year. However, rebuilding year at UGA should mean a 3 or 4 loss season. Not a 6 loss season and not having your team look completely clueless at times. The rebuilding was suppose to start in the offseason with the elimination of foolish penalties. This is a coaches responsibility.

Also during a rebuilding year you play your young guys. You do not play a 5th yr. QB that has no where near an SEC arm. Playing him does nothing for the program at all. You do not continue to play Miller, Evans and Jones. These guys are always out of position, commit penalties and just play plain dumb. Again rebuilding. We see the talent but unfortunately it is on the sidelines for the majority of the game. We see all of the talent at TE and WR on offense. yet we have no imagination as to how to get them the ball. Our OC comes into the game with a plan and if it doesn’t work well to bad. Our DC comes into the game against a terrible QB who has shown he sucks when pressured. What do we do, a soft zone with no pressure.

I can handle a rebuilding year however the problem is there is no building going on.

Does anyone know who is now 6-6 on the year? I’ll give you a clue, 5th yr redheaded SR. How many coaches stick with their QB after throwing INT and fumbling in every single game?

How does 6-6, 4-7, 9-3, 10- 2, 5- 6, 6-4-1, and 6-6 sound to you? In case math wasn’t your forte, that’s an average of just over 6.5 wins per year.

Those blaming the offense, or lack there of, on Cox are really not looking deep enough. It’s the O-line. This is one of the sorriest bunch on the O-line I’ve seen line up for the Dawgs. Cox’s 1st interception and even arguably the 2nd were both because of the failure of the O-line. Plus, our running game is pathetic. It completely handicaps us on offense because opposing defenses know we have to pass to gain yardage. It may be coaching, but I’m not putting all the blame on them. We have some players that hardly deserve to play.

“THERE IS NO EXCUSE”. The numbers show the results. Since Van Gorder left the defense and Richt left the offensive play calling to Bobo, the Dawgs have suffered. There is no correct adjustments to the opposing offense’s by Martinez. Week after week the fans see the results. You see the defensive players on the field with their hands on their hips wainting for the call while the offense lines up and runs plays. Every week, you see the defensive players upset with their teammates because they were not in the correct position. The Dawgs have talent, both young and experienced but yet we get outcoached every game. What happen to the great shots of the QB’s, coming over to chat with Richt and go out and make amazing plays. Where in the world does a QB spike the ball on the field with 1 second on the clock? There is no confidence whatsoever, that next week we will get better because you can see the results thru the past years that we aren’t. The time has come for some changes. The talent is on this team. I say if there are players who aren’t going to tackle but bump the player, GET HIM OFF THE FIELD and put someone out there who is going to tackle. Where is the leadership? Joe Cox is not playing well and is not making smart decisions. Where is the coaching?

Coach Smith, did you watch the game? Watch TN big plays sir. Miller, Evans or Jones were responsible for almost every single one of them typically with them blaming each other for the poor play. Heck you don’t even have to watch the game just watch the highlights over on SC.

Rambo typically plays in the Nickel package in which Jones, Rambo and Evans are all in the game at the same time. If Commings was in the game then he must have done pretty good as I certainly didn’t see him getting burned.

Sinkwich: Class of ‘84-Thanks for asking. Despite living in Califonia I make 3-5 games a year (went to the ASU and LSU)-my bulldog bona fides are pretty strong.

I did not say that Richt has the same overall record as Goff-The point is that this team I saw today looked as inept as any Goff coached. The trademark of the Goff era was that despite talent, we lost every big game we played. I’d say over the past 2 years, that sums us up pretty well.

You are doubtless one of the blind loyalists that think everything is going well simply because things used to be going so darn well a few years back.

It may be time to actually use Logan Gray more and see what he can do with our offense, maybe his ability to run may give us another weapon, however, my fear is that he is not showing the coaching staff enough in practice to unseat Joe Cox, and let me be clear on this, this is not Joe Cox’s fault, our offensive has a lot of problems and it starts up front, any coach will tell you that and the same goes for the defense, it starts up front, until we find some way of addressing these problems we will continue to regress as other teams improve, i’m usually very optimistic, but must admit i’m shocked that neither one of our lines are playing well, don’t know if its coaching or just the talent isn’t what we thought….

it first became apparent to me at homecoming against colorado in 2007 (i think?) that willie martinez has sucked it against bootlegs to tight ends, playaction to fullbacks in the flat, bootlegs to receivers on drag routes. i used to think it was a great idea for richt to model his program after bobby bowden’s and bring willie along a la mickey andrews as defensive coordinator/best buddy/confidant/whatever, but problem is willie just can’t do the job. maybe he’s great at recruiting, but i’d rather have a bunch of well-coached 2 star players than a bunch of pure talent blue chips, running around chasing guys. watching georgia football right now for me is like henry winkler as mr. coach kline in ‘the waterboy’ watching game film. to say i’ve been relegated to a defeatist doesn’t even scratch the surface.

Even though we seem to have one of the top ten recruiting classes year after year, we still can’t make the move from mediocre or good to GREAT. Consequently, even though I really like Mark Richt, the blame must fall on the coaching. With all the money and support that UGA can muster, why can’t we get the coaches that we need to beat the major SEC teams? Martinez has led extremely embarrassing defenses for at least two years, and Bobo continues to make bizarre calls way too often. Therefore, what does this situation tell us about Richt? He’s a nice guy, and a “good” coach. However, I’m not sure that he can be a GREAT coach, and he does seem to be unable to make the tough decisions–even when things get ugly. We owe so much more to our talented recruits and our dedicated fans. I think this year is going to be a bloody one–will it make Richt finally make the tough coaching decisions,or will the UGA administration have to make those decisions??

If Willie Martinez really appreciated his friend’s loyalty, he would resign.

Richt will lose his job before he fires you Willie. Will you make him?

I doubt recruits are reading this blog as you say. Even if they are who cares? Did you watch the game today? Why would a top recruit want to come to UGA? The top programs (USC, Texas, Florida etc…) NEVER get blown out the wasy UGA did today. Truthfully, UGA is good for 1-2 blow-out losses every season. If you want top recruits then you have to earn them.

What happens to the guys that are supposed to be Blue Chips when they get in the GA program. Its time for those questions to be answered, come on GA fans its time to rally together, the dawgs sure arent gonna do that, so lets do that and get some results.

But couldn’t we have just a bit of unpredictability? Why can’t we execute screens? Is it possible that we practice on 20 hours and the rest of the country goes over, as evidenced by the Michigan player’s comments? Is there any excuse for us to look this woefully unprepared?

Week after week our opponent’s receivers seem to be open with no one in the same zip code defending. The offensive coordinator doesn’t seem to realize Stafford is in the NFL! How about designing the offense around the talent you have instead of trying to make Cox in to something he is not. Can we not run the football? We have some talented ball carriers that get too few touches. Can we coach up the players on when it’s appropriate to fair catch and when it’s best to let it go? What the heck is going on?

I’ve been trying to defend the coaching staff, but I can’t do it anymore. The SEC is not the place for “on the job” training. (Bobo, 1st time coordinator, McClendon 1st time coach). We’ve got a coach with no experience coaching a group of inexperienced players with McClendon. My vote would be to get rid of every coach with the exception of Ball, Searls and Garner. Everyone else gone and start over before its too late. We still have enough talent to recover next season, but we have to get the right coaches in place. Hopefully CMR will realize that it will be him getting new coaches or the powers that be replacing the entire staff including him. I know a good “captain” goes down with his ship, but hopefully he’ll make the right moves and keep the ship form sinking

Time to start thinking about next year. We’re two games behind Florida already in the east, and Tennessee has the tie-breaker advantage now. So I say get those heralded recruits on the field this year instead of “rebuilding” next year. We can’t handle 2006 and 2009 again in 2010. That would be three out of five down years, and in my book, one down year too many in Athens. Today was a wake-up call!

I think we saw why today. It appears he was given time to coach this week and Special Teams is the one area of we saw improvement. They were not perfect but at least improving. He seems to care about winning and Georgia performing. On the side lines he looked engaged and obviously made adjustments this week. Go John Go Dogs

It is NOT time to get rid of Mark Richt. It is time to correct the problems we have and I believe Coach Richt will do what is needed to address the coaching situation at the END of the season. He has been loyal to his coaches but he will do what is needed for the program. Those who disagree are entitled to their opinion. I choose to be grateful for what Coach Richt has accomplished at UGA and the success we have had (of course I’m unhappy with what happened in Knoxville today – it was bad).

I would like to mention Rodney Garner for Defensive Coordinator. Promote him. He is the recruiter that we need. He did great gettin Tennessee’s recruits in the 90’s, and he is responsible for the freshman class this year. If he is passed over, we will lose him too, and Garner is someone we need to keep. Letting Willie go is the right move, but keeping Garner is more of a MUST.

Long season. Go dawgs. Regroup.

CMR said the criticism comes from people “not in the arena, and who have never been in the arena”. Got news for you coach, plenty of us have played at the next level, and we are not blind (yet). Many of your own alumni, former players, and other college coaches (also known as tv analyst) have identified problem areas. Don’t say we don’t have the right to criticize or that we are not “qualified”. Heck, my 10 year old knows you aren’t blocking, tackling, or playing good sound football.

Rodney is assistant head coach. I think technically he outranks Martinez. I noticed they appointed another co-defensive coordinator. Looks like way too many bad cooks.

I’m afraid that unless we start fresh and get Murray some playing time now what we are seeing now we will see more of next year. I think this season is history so we best start preparing for the next or we won’t be getting any more 4 or 5 star recruits. Who would of thought that there would be a UGA team that couldn’t run the ball. CMR look at Alabama, big linemen running the ball down the other teams throat. Can we keep on letting the opposing teams qb’s do Manning and Brady imitatations? Can our defensive coaches ever make adjustments-how many times can a qb run bootlegs before somebody starts asking how do we stop this? Can anyone see the difference between our sidelines and Spurriers, Sabins and Meyers? They would not tolerate such incompetence week after week. THe qb would be sitting, people would leave and new people would come. A truely sad state of affairs in the state of Ga.

This isn’t anything new. The coaching has been horrid for the past four years. Mark Richt may be the “dean” of SEC coaches, but you know what that means…he is in line to be the next to be replaced. Since he isn’t going to be fired, maybe Damon Evans will get the message in 2010 when people like myself fail to donate and renew their tickets because our head coach refused to make major staff changes.

The FACT OF THE MATTER is Mark Richt has HIGH SCHOOL COACHES as assistants. Mike Bobo, John Jancek, Willie Martinez and Jon Fabris (among others) are ALL incompetent at the college level. ALL NEED TO BE FIRED AT THE CONCLUSION OF THIS SEASON. I doubt that will happen, and Richt’s team will be right back to this point in 2010 with a Logan Gray-lead team getting beat soundly by a less-talented Tennessee in Athens.

Richt is now 1-3 his last four versus UT (2-4 his last six). Same record against Florida (we WILL NOT beat Florida). Jim Donnan was fired because of this same problem? The second consecutive loss to Tech this year may wake up the AD, but all the “Dooley huggers” will want to compare Richt to the “good old days” when Vince went 6-6 and still kept his job. Whatever. It’s a second tier SEC program and will remain there until these people die off from old age.

Some of you former player/coaches let me know: Shouldn’t Martinez be doing the same stuff as Van Gorder? What makes his defense so different? Why does our d-line play so close together? Why not spread the defensive ends out more to get around the end? Should we play more man defense?

Considering all the young players on both sides of the ball this year, I think we’re playing as many young players as possible. I wouldn’t totally throw away the season by starting a young qb just because the senior has one bad game. You don’t want to shell-shock the kid. Besides, I hear they throw a lot of interceptions against OUR defense. I’d hate to see what they would do against a real defense!
All the youth does bode well for the future. Also shows how good Stafford and Moreno really were. The line was younger and more injured last year, but look how well we did.

The DL pinches the line to provide pressure in the middle.

There are lots of reasons to do that, and they’re all situational.

Sometimes you want to pinch; sometimes you want to spread.

It’s all predicated by what you’re trying to do on your defense.

I didn’t get the chance to watch the game, just listened on the ‘ole XM from El Paso, TX and am glad I did not see it. From what I heard, this was probably the weakest performance in CMR’s tenure. My pop, who played for the Dawgs under Butts in the 50’s has rolled over in his grave! I have to think that with this loss and the way we were smashed, will mean the end of Martinez at Georgia.

My biggest concern this season has been some of the comments I have read from the coaches and some of the players this year. It seems by their responses in interviews that they are more concerned on calling out arm chair quarterbacks than how poorly they have performed. I was a collegiate athlete but never played football and don’t pretend to be more than a fan of the game, but it seems like the staff and players need to take a step back to see the truth. The fans who are not spending day in and day out with the players have less individual investment which often creates a greater level of clarity of the big picture. I have been defending CMR to for years, but anyone can see that there are issues beyond just having a bad game. Tim Tebow (Who is an arogant SOB) apologized after a loss to Ole Miss and went on to win a National Championship. Joe Cox criticized fans for not knowing what they were talking about since they never played football when addressing concerns about his shamefull performance at Ok. State. I was excited about this “team player” I had heard so much about and was dissapointed to watch him play when he knew he wasn’t healthy. I have to think he was worried about losing his spot more than being a “team player”. I simply thought Cox just wasn’t our qb and Richt was being too loyal after the way he performed and comments like this, until I read some similar comments from Richt today. He is a tremendous coach, but he is also the CEO and needs to make some difficult decisions. UGA has just as much talent on the field as any other team in the country, but don’t seem to have the winning attitude. A chip on your shoulder, or the ability to jaw at other players isn’t the same thing as confidence and execution. Nothing beats a player that makes big plays and acts like it was supposed to happen when he walks back to the huddle. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Knowshon’s enthusiasm and feel that he lit a spark with the team last year by his love and enthusiasm for the game. I like the black jerseys and rewarding the players by allowing them to enjoy the experience. I just don’t think we should have to try so much to get players “up” for a game. It seems from a distance that they have the wrong attitude and a lack of discipline and heart. Their leaders are the coaches and the coaches are the responsibility of the head coach. CMR, please take a step back and evaluate where things have trended for quite some time. There are some coaches that need to go, numbers don’t lie. We have some tremendous talent and character in players like Curran and A.J. It seems like we also have a lot of guys that like to point fingers more than making plays. You are our leader and this is your time to shine or fold.

P.S. What is the deal with all of the UGA Haters on this blog? It is really sad how much people that either couldn’t get in or chose another school envy Georgia. They are like that bitter guy at the high school reunion who wants to tell everybody how successful he is, but nobody really cares. Move On with your life!

October 11th, 2009
1:00 am

My Ga Florida tickets on Stub Hub haven’t drawn a bid at all. What will get Mark in trouble is what got Goff fired…fan apathy. I know it’s collegiate sports, but the fans are charged professional money to attend a game. Folks will look at the continuing challenges of this economy and start to wonder if it’s really worth paying 40 bucks for a ticket to see mediocrity. Season holders have to pay a ‘donation’, code for extortion money, on top of the ticket price. If the rest of the season plays out as I expect it will, and the staff stays intact, as I expect it will, Damon will feel heat unlike he’s felt in is short tenure as Director of the Cash Cow known as the athletic department. In short, Mark will not fire Willie, he doesn’t have it in him. This my be what Bowden meant when he told Dooley that he didn’t know if Mark was ‘tough enough’ to be a head coach. It’s gotta be tough knowing you might have to fire your best friend, who happens to work for you. Mark may be able to do it…but he may not. Be ready for the latter, I’d be surprised at the former.

Well,, Georgia’s year is toast. It’s a shame. Poor decisions by CMR to stick with Cox for so long. Cox has had a few, a very, very few bright spots, but it is SO clear to EVERYONE that he is not an SEC quality qb. There is basically nothing to play for this year. With Cox being a senior, does the UGA coaching staff not think it might be a good thing to get next year’s potential starting QB some game experience. Cox never lost a game in High School. That’s impressive,, but this is NOT high school, it is NCAA SEC football. Forget about giving Willie, or Bobo or Cos any more chances to prove themselves. Lets use the rest of this season to put together a team that will actually be competitive again. This year blows and it is gone,, build for next year.
At least I still have Army and GT to root for. Watching those two teams play, and the drive, the spirit and the desire that the teams have put my Dawgs to shame. Watching the game tonight, it looked as though the majority of the UGA players were just waiting for the clock to tick down so that they could get back to Athens and get to the parties. I have loved the Bulldogs since ‘74, spent every football weekend there from 76 to 81 and loved it. They played with heart, win or lose,,, they played hard and with grit. This years team could just as well stay home if CMR doesn’t make changes right now,,, before next week. My boys at West Point beat Vanderbilt today, and I can pretty much guarantee you that if Cox is behind center next week, and Willie is on the sidelines,, the Dawgs are going to suffer.

I hate it,, but this years Bulldogs are pathetic.

The absolute worst prepared football team I have seen in years! I’ve said for three years now that Martinez needs to go! And if this pitiful exhibition of both offensive and defensive football doesn’t resonate with Richt, then he needs to reevaluate himself as well. If you can’t coach the talent that Georgia has and get them prepared for a rival like Tennessee, and if you can’t prepare a game plan for a second rate quarterback like Crompton and a back like Hardesty who you know is going to pound you in the face, then you need to best find another line of work. As for Bobo, what have you been drinking the last couple of weeks? Looking at the schedule, we’ll be lucky to finish 6 & 6. Tech will absolutely obliterate us again and I hate to think what Florida will do to us!!

When no changes wer made after last year, we all should have seen this day coming. The players should frankly be embarassed. I would like to see them show up for the rest of the season with plain red helmets…but if anybody deserves to lose the honor of wearing that G it is the coaching staff.

Can’t blame this one on the ref. I wonder how much longer the UGA faithful can hear 3-3 without jumping off the Richt bandwagon. Face it he doesn’t have the marbles to fire Bobo or Martinez. Face it Tennessee is only going to better. The lack of running game, turnovers and lame duck playcalling. I don’t care who you play if you can’t score you can’t win. This season fills like a 6 loss season. That is right UGA still plays Auburn, Tech and Florida. Now if I was UGA I would worry about not even being the best team in the state. For recruiting that has to be a chapper. With Tech’s new found success maybe UGA fans should look and see how a coach makes a difference. Saban turned bama into a powerhouse within a two year period. Yet Richt has top 10 recruiting classes and can’t even compete with Tennessee.

Lets consider for a moment that Georgia may NOT really have all the talent that so many peolpe assume. Just because a player is ranked 4 and 5 stars (and usually by southern puplications) doesnt mean is he IS a four or 5 star athelete. Because of the support that so many SEC and georgia sportswriters and fans give, many assume that if UGA is interested in a player, the guy must be a 4-5 star recruit, and therefore the ‘Buzz” around the player starts and he gets a higher than deseved ranking.
This is something that needs to be at least considered as well as the above mentioned coaching problems. Are the recruits really as good as advertised?

Let’s see….UT’s TE and receivers were wide open all game long. Are defense consists of players that are mostly 4 star caliber. Oh and 1 other thing…..when you are on your own 2 yard line….I do not advise trying to field a punt. It’s coaching folks….plain and simple.

Only bright spot I can see is the punter…Butler. Terrific.

I know….lets just punt on 3rd downs.

Anybody who wants RICHT gone has a SHORT MEMORY

Under DONNAN and GOFF, UGA could count on loses to UT, UF, AUB, and TECH was hit or miss

UGA went 20 YEARS WITHOUT AN SEC TITLE

RICHT HAS WON 2 in 8 SEASONS and played for a 3rd

Richt is NOT the problem, Willie Martinez and Coach Fabris ARE the problem

With CMR we can still count the losses to UT, UA, UF, etc…

IF CMR wants to SAVE his job for next year he has to FIRE Willie and Bobo after the season is over.

Anyone who is criticizing fans who are disappointed with UGA’s play as of late are not looking at the big picture. It’s not that UGA lost…it’s HOW UGA lost this game that is most disheartening.

Offense generated a whopping 3 points. 3 points. Playcalling was horrible. Execution was horrible. Joe Cox remains a BELOW average SEC QB with a weak arm and seems to be regressing from game to game with his decision making process. What was up with the weak a** throw away attempt that ended up in an INT? Oh I forgot, Joe said that if we haven’t played college ball we can’t fraking comment or criticize?

Defense was pathetic, overall scheme was horrible as usual. We must have the WORST scheme in the entire SEC b/c Tenn beat us using 1 basic play from several formations. I guess Willie doesn’t believe in “in game adjustments”? Who knows. We were not ready. No pass rush once again, playing that weak a** soft zone sh*t.

Tough times to be a UGA fan right now. I will continue to support the team, but the coaching staff doesn’t have my vote of confidence any longer. Enough is enough.

According to “Ben”: 10-3 reasons with a mid-level bowl win is not good enough at Georgia. Sorry, but it’s true.

Bull. Georgia has never been a dominant power. Never has. You gnash your teeth over Donnan & Goff, yet give Dooley a pass. 1 National Championship in over 25 years at the helm. What did Bryant do at Bama? 5 or 6 MNC’s in his 25 years. The only reason Georgia got the MNC in the 80’s is because the road to New Orleans didn’t go through Tuscaloosa that year.

Don’t sit there and say 10-3 or 9-4 isn’t good enough. It’s always been good enough for UGA. It’s your legacy.

We win one sticking NC in 115 years of football and we think we are God’s gift to football. They get a good 8 to 10 year run, make millions, and go to work for ESPN. Damon Evans is not going to do anything and Mark Richt will say if willie goes I go. UGA coaching staff is like the Waltons, good night bobo, good night willie, good night richt boy.

I don’t understand why everyone is being a fair weather fan here. Richt is the best thing that’s happened to Georgia maybe ever. He coached us to the #2 ranking in the country two seasons ago, just a few votes away from playing in the BCS national championship. He has never lost more than 3 games in a season in nearly a decade at UGA. We have been to the SEC Championship three times, winning it twice. Sure, we have yet to win a national championship. Maybe we should’ve last year. But this is no time to call for Richt’s job. Everyone has made true statements about coordinators and intensity, etc. But please, remember how good we have it to have a coach like Mark Richt. This ain’t 1980. It’s so very hard to win a national championship today. Richt can’t help it that Stafford and Moreno got greedy and left for the pros. Imagine how we’d be if they had stayed. Believe me, this may be a down year, but this program is still one of the finest in the country. I can’t wait till Aaron Murray, Marlon Brown, Washaun Ealy, Orson Charles, and company take the reigns in the next two years. The future is bright, so don’t bring everyone down!!!

Your offense on Saturday managed only 3 points. Your pups were out coached and out played on both sides of the ball. One of the many reason your fans are so disliked is the inability to be a realist. I have see quotes like”mark my words we win out “, after the loss to LSU . “We will beat Tennessee because we are more talented and better coached”. When will you Homers ever admit there are others better than you and it looks like that number is growing weekly.

Well since I said we needed to lose the rest of our games this year, we are on track. Didn’t know it would be this lousy however. I am sure CMR is a good christian and a loving father and great husband. But he is not a football coach. Until we have a change at the top position we will continue to see this type of product. And this isn’t nothing new, we have been made to think that the seasons have been great with CMR, but I DISAGREE – Always stumbling to a crap team, never being able to beat the elite teams, and getting our asses handed to us by the likes of Florida, Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, Oklahoma State, etc. etc. etc. on a year in year out basis. The success of CMR and his staff was due to the inheritance of the previous coach, now look what he has done with his own class of recruits!! And hey, we’re getting even worse year by year. Sorry, but it is time for the traveling revival boys to go. Until then, we will be the laughing stock of not only the SEC but the entire college football world. ESPN saw right through all of this years ago, and is why they do not want to cover Georgia, we make them look bad. Time to turn my attention to the NFL, and my Saturdays are now free to work on all of my pet projects. This season is a bust.

I’m glad (which is sad that I’m a DAWGS fan) that we got drilled by a better coached–but mediocre Tenn. team. Maybe our alum will voice their opinions and maybe they’ll be the one to get things changed. Listen, Mark Richt has come in and done good things with our team over the years–but–as someone said earlier: “Consistently in the top 10 in recruiting–do not have seasons like this.” I totally agree with that. I remember being at the game when we got beat by Southern Miss. 11-7 but that was in 1996–this is 2009 (our worst start since then). What in the hell is going on? Hopefully we can beat Vandy. Auburn, no chance–Kentucky–probably not. Florida–no way in hell. Tenn. Tech–probably–but no gurantees and Tech–no way!

We’ve given up 194 points 1/2 way into the season–WOW! Scored 152 (which isn’t bad)–but almost 200 points on defense at the 1/2 way point. Really.

Well..it’s not all that bad–On my birthday (October 19th) I get to hear David Greene and David Pollack speak at my church. I think afterwards–I’ll ask them to suit up for us one last time. I bet that after them not playing for quite some time–that they would actually do better.

This is awesome–I can’t wait to watch what will happen next week when we play Vandy.

I think Lane Kiffin at his press conference hiring when he mentioned singing rocky top after beating Florida–he really meant UGA.

I am a fan and supporter of Coach Richt. Having said this, it is so obvious that Coach Richt is being detrimentally loyal to his coaches and players. Does everyone not see that Evans, Miller, and Jones have been the same three in the secondary for the past 3 seasons that continually blow coverages, miss tackles, and generally have no talent except to strut for individual showoff on the rare occasion they make a play? If we can see it, the coaches can see it. Problem is the coaches are too loyal to these upper classmen. Replace them with Rambo, Branden Smith, and Logan Gray in the secondary and our defense will be better immediately. Also, CMR you must fire Martinez immediately. We have seen a continuous decline in defense since he became DC and you have given him way more time to learn and fix problems than any coach would…sometimes, people may be friends, but like a manager in the business world, you are paid to make tough decisions when tough decisions are required. Your stockholders have run out of patience on Martinez. The continuous display of complete incompetence has reached its zenith and YOU will be costing UGA millions of dollars as stockholders “sell their UGA football stock”.
I try to remember its just a game, but the reality is that you and the football program are a business (if not sure of this, look at the budget of the athletic program and your own salary) and in business losers do not last. Let’s make the necessary changes to get the program turned in the right direction again. Also, whoever was responsible for spiking the ball with one second left instead of trying any play, let alone having the foresight to have the field goal team ready to snap and kick it when the ball was reset after the first down stopped the clock, needs their pay docked this week. That was beyond stupidity. Very truly, a concerned UGA football stockholder.

For all of you who state how great UGA since CMR came to Athens I have one question for you.

Whats Richts record against a top 5 opponent?

2-3 and we haven’t won a game against a top 5 team since we beat Auburn in 2006.
Last time UGA played a top 5 team was this year and lost to LSU, last year lost to Florida 49-10.

Not so great is it? What are all of you afraid of? UGA can do better then what we are seeing. Why are all of you scared of losing CMR? What has he really done? Over-acheived first 4 years because of Greene and Pollack, Since then he’s been going down hill!

Average coaching + Great Talent = May equal average great results
Poor coaching + average to great talent = poor results

Do the math.

The only honorable thing for Willie to do is to tenure his resignation at the end of the season. Bobo is lucky that he scored a prime job that so many have to wait years for. MR is no different from any other great coach has had to do that stays in coaching for decades, make adjustments in your coaching by adding coaches that keep you abreast with the changes in their profession. He has earned the right to make this decision. I admire any man for staying loyal to his friends and protecting people who work under him. However this is not the world that high level coaches live in when it comes to NCAA football. I’m not sure what he is going to do. I know what Saban, Urby and some of the others would do. But MR? That’s what I have always admired about him. I hope he survives the storm.

Here is a quote from Eric Berry after the game yesterday…”(Kiffin) basically made a promise to us that we wouldn’t lose to them anymore, forever or until he leaves,” Berry said. “He’s not going to let Georgia beat us.”

There is a major problem when you consistantly have dreadful offenses running up and down the field against your defense. Kiffin would not even let Crompton attempt a pass againsy Florida and he throws for 310 against UGA….receivers running wide open. This is not just a one time problem…this is happening week after week same things over and over again. Seems like the coaching staff is far more concerned with making sure the celebration dances are worked on than maybe blocking and tackling.

Bulldog fans have every right to be angry, frustrated and concerned after such a disheartening loss and insufficient performance from their players (who have a great deal of talent) and their coaching staff. The program has tons of money and tons of solid support from its loyal boosters and fans. These fans have every right to expect so much more. Other teams in the SEC have had the kind of national success (and that means national championships – the bar should be set no lower) that they feel they should have also enjoyed considering their talent and resources. In football, coaches are cut only so much slack. Look at the way they are treating Bowden in Tallahassee – has Richt done as much for UGA as Bowden has done for FSU? That is just the way it is in big-time football. UGA fans should expect the best and are not getting it – I hear my UGA friends talk and I am surprised about how defeatist they sound at times. I do not hear any of the Bulldog Nation going so far as to criticize Richt, however. He seems to be held as sacred. In the end, however, he is the man in charge and must answer for his staff and players and all the decisions made. If UGA loses to Tech again this year – and if they lose big, as Tech has the ability to put up some points – the grumbles will grow very, very loud among the red-and-black faithful.

Logan Gray has been at UGA for 3 years and looks like Pee Wee Herman out there. Need to fire the weight room coach too. Richt just stood there yesterday with that silly smirk everytime a call went against UGA. I watched Saban and his intensity demands discipline. I saw Willie standing next to Richt in the 4th quarter like they were at a bar sipping a cold one. MAN UP Richt or hit the pavement. You can’t be everyone’s buddy during the week and expect respect on Saturday. This team continues to play soft week in and week out! I can handle losing with HEART. MAN UP CMR.

Anyone realize that when we lose to Ten we always end up winning in Jacksonville? When we win against the Vols, we always lose to the Gators. Weird, but it has been a long time since the Dawgs lost to Florida and Tennessee in the same season, maybe this is setting up an upset or the Gators.

Anybody still want to talk about Cox’s HS record,summer camp performance,or that awe inspiring Colorado game?What about how Searles is the best coach we have hired in years..you know the one with that”fire in the belly” so many people seem to want to see.Bobo get’s a lot of flak about play calling, a lot of folks talk about Richt taking back those duties…but here’s the thing…the OL sucks,,,I mean the one area on the team with the most playing experience..coached by the one coach everybody was praising over the summer is the worst unit on the team..yep they are worse than the secondary!!I admit I was one of those hyping this OL as the best in the nation(prior to Sturdy going down)I still thought we was best in SEC without him…boy was I wrong on that call!!Some of these kids have been playing 3 years Boiling,Vance and Jones have been major disappointments this season.I did say Joe Cox never got much PT for a reason….. now everybody can see why…kid has heart true but that’s not enough…I could go on and on about Cox but I said it all over the summer…I just wish I had been as wrong about him as I was about our OL.Willie…ok he’s looking bad right now…last year’s issues are still here…any big QB that has big WR will torch our pass Defense…nothing much has change..same targets….Evans and Miller have had back to back poor seasons…both played pretty well their fresh and soph years ironically..what happened?I have no clue.One thing on D that’s starting to stick out to me is that…. we are small in general,little CB’s and LB’s even the DL kids are light compared to other SEC teams.I know we go after speed on D but as I said over the summer it don’t mean much if you run a 4.2 40 if you get run over when you get to the ball.LB play was poor this game…what happened to Gamble this year?I know Dent has been hurt but I expected D.Gamble to have a good year…Anybody seen Nick Williams?Dowtin and Curran are the LB crew…surprised at the drop off after those two.Richt has multiple issues to deal with….No 1.OL-nothing is going to work on Offense until that unit get it together.N0 2.Defense-I see 3 problems..1.small players at CB and LB 2.Fear of leaving the CB’s one on one with WR while blitzing(I say we got nothing to lose..it’s not like we’ve been successful with what we are doing.3.It’s time to rethink the scheme in general…Almost every team we have played has neutralized our pass rush.One another note we have definitely addressed a lot of concerns with this recruiting class but we need to right the ship now and we have the kids to get it done.Mark has his work cut out for him…I’m betting on Richt to get it tuned around.

You guys can call for Willie’s head all you want, but he is not the one that is not tackling, or is consantly out of position. I guess all those 5 stars is not as good as they was rated. To be Honest, Richt is being out coached. You see it time and time again. You guys need to get off that CMR love fest, and admit, he has lead your program into a downward spiral. Plus, BOBO sucks. You guys was better when your player’s was getting in trouble.

If you have not watch CMR press conference after yesterdays game I recommend doing so. He looks completely defeated and when asked if he likes Bobo’s play calling he says “yes” and gets extremely defensive with the report and then ends the press conference. The first step to fixing the problem is admitting you have a problem. Evidentally he thinks our coaching staff is performing at a high level. I think this is going to end very badly for CMR because it appears he is NOT going to upgrade in the off season and get new coodinators in to help the team.

Kirby Smart has a good thing going at Alabama. He would only leave for a head coaching opening. He has stock piled talent at Alabama. Georgia would be a step back given current situation. Georgia tradition would not be enough. I would look at Alabama’s linebacker coach James Willis. Those guys are physical and each one (I counted 6 during the Mississippi game) plays like the guys on the other side of line slapped their mother. Coach Willis could be a real sleeper.

Here’s what I don’t get – we had a middle linebacker making his second start after he got abused by Auburn last week. Yet to me it seems Georgia never attacked him. All week I was worried about how to cover Orson Charles down the middle (in cover 2 the middle linebacker has to do a middle drop to cover) and I never even heard Charles’ name (I was at the game so I may have missed it).

The bottom line is that Georgia looked flat and slow yesterday. Maybe its just too many games in a row against good teams. One thing is for sure, Georgia better watch out this week – 7th game in a row and back-to-back road games. Vandy isn’t very good this year but they can still surprise people.

Anyway, we had a lot of recruits there that we are competing for against Georgia so thanks for the lousy performance.

Children – Children such nastiness! Richt is a great coach, and you Dawgs need to review his history! If three defeats brings out the wolves, what would a losing season bring, the axe? “Off with his head, Off with his head” say the loyal Dog nation.

Boo Boo needs to go. Martinez should have been gone. But if you have anyone in their right minds at the Georgia University, you better keep Richt. Anyone can slide, anyone can have bad things go wrong.

As I’ve said before, UGA needs to regroup, and take these losses like a team. The coach does not drop passes. The coach does not break down the offensive line, nor does the coach catch the opponets pass in the end zone. The players on the field do!! If they are not producing, put them on the bench and put second string in!! They can do NO worse!!!

But KEEP RICHT!!!!! Or lose him and regret it for decades!

Go Devils.

The sticky part for CMR is replacing either the OC or the DC, or both. Bobo, and Martinez were to inexperienced to be give coordinator jobs in the rugged SEC. CMR awarded both at nearly the same time. You can’t demote them, so what do you do? If you fire them then it says alot about you as an evaluator of talent. But then again that might explain alot of these 5 STAR recruits that become BUSTS once they step between the Hedges.

Well this is not going to be a smart a$$ comment, but as fans we are not that different. You guys are going through what we where with fulmer. Our program got very stale. I don’t look for us to seriously contend again for anouther two years. BUT u guys have an advantage that we dont. If they did decide to get rid of CMR and staff, U guys have the talent for anouther coach to come in and do great things. That would help him build his program very quickly. CLK was left with hardly nothin. Everyone is sayin that CLK can’t coach, but he is takin less talent and being competive with it. That alone shows our coaching staff is coachin up the talent. I just can’t wait till we land a couple top five recruiting classes to see how we really play. If you guys do go after anouther coach I think CBK from Cincinatti would be a great fit and could take the talent you have now and win with it. Just my opinon.

Not so great is it? What are all of you afraid of? UGA can do better then what we are seeing. Why are all of you scared of losing CMR? What has he really done? Over-acheived first 4 years because of Greene and Pollack, Since then he’s been going down hill!

Courage, I agree. Those 2 players were recruited by Donnan. Face it, CMR’s recruits are not panning out. Maybe from a talent standpoint, but from a team and winning standpoint, not so much.

TNVOL34, I am not arguing with you. The Cinci HC, BSU HC, even TCU HC do so much with so little. I would like to have a HC who is a teacher. Take a 3 Star and in 4 years have a 5 STAR player. That is what UGA is missing. They don’t have any teachers to develope talent. They are relying on players talents alone to try and win. That is not the recipe for succes in the SEC. It shows because UGA cannot beat the Big Dogs of the SEC.

I don’t know much about Lane, but his dad Monte is a Master at teaching. He has a way of teaching even NFL All Pros his philosophy and defensive schemes. Once UT gets good, they will be good for a while.

TNVOL34, That is what alot of people don’t realize. It is not that I think we can win every game, every year. It is how you play as a team in the wins and in the losses. This is not a CMR thing, it is a UGA culture thing. We have had to much talent to play “Tween the Hedges” to have only been able to UF twice in 20 years. Also no disrespect to the VOLS, but there have been years where you guys got more done with coaching than talent. Alot of years UGA has lost to you all and it was obvious that UGA was the better te.. No UGA had better talent. Even with Fat Phil, you guys had better coaching.

Richt’s comments about criticism from those who have never been “in the arena” is one of the most boneheaded things I’ve ever heard from a headcoach. Granted, I never played college ball but I damn sure donated my HARDEARNED CASH to the Hartman fund last year and if I want to criticize the product that I (and I’m sure plenty of yall are too) am bankrolling for substandard performance, I will. It also doesn’t take a genius to understand that a defense that allows ON AVERAGE 30+ a game isn’t performing to the standard of an ELITE team (as we’ve been told that we are…I’m not so sure looking back at the last 9 years).

I think CMR as well as Cox have been using it as a straw man to draw attention away from the fact that there are serious issues here that must be addressed right now.

Ironically, if UGA would recruit players who can actually read and don’t spend half their time in jail, their record would be better. Some of you don’t want to hear that, but it’s true. And Richt is THE one who made the decision to recruit functionally illiterate thugs. So you reap what you sow. ;-)

The Vols said the game was like taking candy from a baby. That stupid ass Kifin acts like it was his game plan. What a joke that is. But he is surounded by top assistants. Just the opposite with Ga. Georgia has very serious issues and the problem must be solved by Adams and Evans. At season end they must make Richt state what he is going to do and when and that means drastic coaching changes. If not. The program is going to spiral out of control, downward. Just like I have been saying all along!

I have to admit that CMR’s loyalty to his assistant coaches is admirable… but what I can’t figure out is the disloyalty among his assitants. If they were as true blue to him as he is to them, they would resign, if for no other reason than to protect him from their ineptness! DON’T THEY CARE that they are destroying the program? Why are they taking him down with them? Surely they can recognize that changes are forth-coming one way or another?

It was a great day on Rocky Top!

The poll question asked what was the biggest problem with UGA. The options were Offense, Defense, Coaching. There should have been an option for ALL of the Above. GA Special Teams are always very good. But offense AND defense were just as bad. With 45 points scored(6 TD’s) its obvious the defense was like swiss cheese and greatly overmatched. GA’s offense never got closer to the Red Zone than TN’s 32 yard line and only scored 3 points in the game. Its obvious the GA offense was terribly overmatched. And then there’s the coaching. At the half, the score was TN up 21-12. In the second half, TN scored 24 points and GA scored 7. So obviously, the coaches had NOTHING to offer to stop the bleeding. The answer to the poll question should have been, “ALL of the Above”.

The scene: Knoxville – 2001
The play: P44
The now infamous Larry Munson call to all Tennessee Fans: “We just stepped on their faces and broke their nose with a hobbed nailed boot!”

Oh the memories of that great play and day. It was the first time in a decade that Georgia beat Tennessee in Knoxville. I remember Bruce Thornton running out to the middle of the field and stomping all over that power T!

Now, fast forward 8 years and the scene is still in Knoxville. But instead of a hobbed nailed boot, it was a hobbed nailed boot-LEG! Oh, how funny. Jon Crompton ran the same play, a boot leg, over and over and over and over again and UGA could not figure it out! The stout UGA defense could not stop the worst quarterback in the league. He was a superstar. We Vol fans really loved the long pass to Gerald Jones (#4) for a BIG ORANGE touchdown. And of course, Montario Hardesty (pronounced Hard To See) gashed that D for a 39, count them 39, yard touchdown run. Oh, this is just killing me. Oh the joy to beat that UNRANKED team. I thought that was the same team that was ranked No. 1 in last years’ poll. That defense played as if the ball had swine flu. Nobody wanted it. Except for Rambo, not to be confused with John J. Rambo, who intercepted Crompton for a touchdown. I bet you all thought you were about to make a comeback. Sorry folks, but that just was not going to happen. Keep Martinez, we Vol fans really like him. He is not that bad. And we LOVE Bozo…ooops I mean Bobo. Hehe. You get it Bailey? But seriously folks, I will be here all week. Please hold your applause until after the show! Now hit my music! Quote the Raven….never more!!

I am very unhappy to see the comments on-line. They are obviously from people who never played football and do not understand the potential complexity of figuring out what is wrong and how to fix it. The Georgia coaching staff is first rate and they were heros not long ago when they were dealing with other issues that they could identify and manage. They are dealing with a challenge that is perplexing them now. They are certainly more upset than are the ignorant “fans” who are screaming for their heads and infinitely more qualified to get the problem identified and fixed.
