Bulldog Bites: Spring to-do list for UGA quarterbacks

Buck Belue has advice for Zach Mettenberger and the other Georgia QBs. (Bob Andres / AJC)

Georgia QB-turned-sportscaster Buck Belue looks at the Dogs’ three-way spring competition for the starting quarterback’s job in his latest blog entry. Belue believes Mike Bobo will be thinking more bootlegs and roll-outs this year, which should suit two of the candidates, redshirt junior Logan Gray and redshirt freshman Aaron Murray. The other redshirt freshman, Zach Mettenberger, is more of a pocket passer.

Buck assesses what each of the candidates needs to do this spring:

The big thing for Gray, he says, “is proving he can be successful in the pocket, working the short to intermediate passing game.”

Mettenberger, who had troubles with accuracy and footwork in last year’s spring game but has pronounced himself “10 times better” this year, “gets downfield in a hurry. There is some zip on it,” Belue says. His estimation of what Mettenberger needs to show this spring: accuracy and handling the pass rush. “But if he’s 10 times better than last year, this will be something to see.”

As for the popular favorite to win the starting job, Belue says Murray “showed me last spring that he can stand in the pocket and wing it around and escape out of the pocket and make plays on the run. Throws a catchable ball. The thing with Aaron is just staying healthy. The last two years he’s had a broken leg and a bum arm.”

Belue says the best advice he can give the two younger quaterbacks is: “1. Step into the huddle and take charge. Project confidence. 2. Execute the offense. Limit the mistakes. Show them you are serious about winning.”

It should be an interesting G-Day.

SENDING A MESSAGE … A BIT LATE

One of the proposals unveiled this week by the NCAA’s Football Rules Committee (which still must be approved by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel) would require players who wear eye black to use solid black, with no words, logos, numbers or other symbols. That hasn’t been a really big deal with the Dogs, though Washaun Ealey did sport “I run this state” eye blacks in the Tech game. But it would have limited the Rev. Tim Tebow’s on-field ministry considerably. Interesting, though, that they waited until Tebow was gone to make this proposal.

FANTASY CONFERENCES, ANYONE?

The unconfirmed report in a Kansas paper this past week that the Big 10 was talking to Texas about switching over from the Big 12 isn’t taken seriously by many college football observers, but it has provided another opportunity for bloggers to engage in various unlikely what-if scenarios.

Coaches Hot Seat doesn’t see Texas making the move to the Big 10 but proposes that the conference should expand to 14 teams and suggests it poach Kentucky from the SEC as one of them. (Kentucky??!!)  In the wake of that, the Hot Seat suggests that Georgia Tech could return to the SEC to take the Wildcats’ place, a move that the blog says might make it an even better conference “and add the Atlanta TV market, which they already have a sizable hold over.” (Understatement alert: UGA owns the Atlanta TV market.) With the loss of Tech, the Hot Seat proposes the ACC merge with the Big East to form an “uber” conference of 18 teams.

It’s all nonsense, but fun nonsense. So I’ll throw out this question: If the SEC were to lose a team, which school would you like to see take its place?

BACK ON TRACK

The ninth-ranked Gym Dogs posted a big win over over No. 3 Arkansas Friday night at a pinked-out Stegeman Coliseum. The win, Georgia’s second, makes them 3-0 at home this season and improves their record to 3-3 overall. The meet with the Hogettes will be televised on a tape-delay basis at 9 p.m. on Feb. 20 on Fox Sports Net.

UGA WINTER SPORTS DIVISION

They shut down classes early over in Athens on Friday because of the snow, which meant one thing, The Red and Black reports: The dining halls had to remove all their trays to keep students from taking them as makeshift sleds. I’m sure the kids still found ways to amuse themselves. I remember one ice storm a few years back where the students took over Baxter Street and refused to allow any cars up the hill, pushing them backwards down the slick road. Ah, college life!

I am looking forward to seeing how the QB battles come out. I have no favorites even though It seems like Murray is favored by most. It would be something if Logan stepped up and took charge.

Buck obviously is unaware that we need to hire BuLLdawg as offensive coordinator because Buck seems to think that Bobo actually knows what he’s doing. But what does Buck know? He only played QB for a NC team. Besides Bobo only played QB on a very good SEC team. How could either of these former SEC QBs possibly know as much about running an offense as BuLLdawg? What is CMR thinking? Could it be that he actually knows BuLLdawg’s qualifications?

One team to poach from the ACC??? I’d say VT, Miami, or FSU. Heck, I’d even like to see Duke join to add some more academic prowess to the conference (UNC would fit the bill as well). But, becasue of Bball I seriously doubt we’d see either of them join.

The SEC should trade Vandy to the ACC for FSU—–that would definitely make us the strongest conference.

One would have to think that with all the hype about our two young quarterbacks they would work very hard at beating the other out for the job and become an outstanding SEC quarterback. If one emerges as the obvious leader one would imagine a potentially impressive offense. Of course, Bobo will have to become less vanilla in his playcalling and create an offensive scheme which favors the style of whichever one ends up earning the starting job.

Either way, a confident leader on the field should bode well for our returning starters, assuming we can stay healthy. Looking forward to how this plays out.

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how the QB battle works out. Murray and Mettenberger seem like very gifted young men with diverse arrays of talent. Bill, have you heard any more about Gray possibly moving to WR? Based on what I’ve read, he doesn’t seem very receptive to the idea, but has the offensive coaching staff been trying to convince him otherwise?

I’ve said for a long time there 2 SEC schools I’d trade for other schools.

1) Other than tradition Vanderbilt has no business being in the SEC!
2) Arkansas belongs in the BIG12.

Replace those 2 with Clemson, FSU, Miami, or maybe GT or VT. Clemson has the passion for football that goes with being an SEC team. Tech is a ACC school, they be better than Vandy but do not have the alumni & fan base to be in the SEC. VT is little to far north for an SEC school. The only way I can see keeping Arkansas would be if we added Texas. If you go the 14 team route how about: TX, FSU in the West, Miami, & Clemson in the East.

I think Murray has a swagger about him that will really take notice with the offense & help him click. But dont count out Zach that boy can throw the football! His Release may not be quite as quick as Staffords but ball gets there bout the same! What I have seen really looks more like Ryan Mallet. I was excited when we signed Logan maybe he hasnt really had a chance to show me what I have expected & the situations he was put in didnt help He has a stronger arm than cox & should be more accurate & he is supposed to be one of the fastest players onthe team but havent got to see it on the field ( putting him in for 1 play or to & running a QB sweep was always obvious for opposing defenses) I’m expecting this tight competition to make these boys better last year they knew who the guy was & maybe they all didnt have a big fire lite under them well now they do! I expect Murray to win the job just a prediction I think he is the best College QB we have & can win games! Also throwing to AJ can make any QB look good he made cox look good a lot last year lol. With AJ Durahm coming back Wooten Charles White King Troupe & I really expect Marlon Brown to settle in this year & become a go to guy He has almost if not as much Talent as AJ just maybe not as much body control. All these recievers are good if not great! QB may just have to be good & not great with these recievers at least for this season

Agreed how2fish, but the thing about the Dooley years is that he didn’t get into that many 3rd & 16s. Even when he didn’t have the hosses he still knew that to win you had to run the damn ball. Running the ball successfully will take a big load off of an inexperienced defense, especially early in the season.

1- Murray seems to have “it”, whatever “it” is. IMO, he is the frontrunner, if he stays healthy. I am more worried about the tendonitis than the broken leg. Bones heal much easier than tendons. 2- As to the eye black, the NCAA seems to be going the way of the NFL. They want players to be cogs in the machine rather than individuals. Players graduate so you can just put a new cog in the machine without hurting the product. CFB is a product that makes billions for the NCAA management. 3- If I could rearrange the SEC I would let Arky go to the Big 12 since they were part of the old Southwest Conference, then Clemson could join the SEC. I miss that old rivalry. Some of the most memorable games that I have attended in Athen have featured the Dogs and Clemson.

I’d like to see Tech back in the SEC.

If not Tech, I’d love it if GSU (Southern) was ready, but alas they aren’t quite there yet.

Hmm after that, I imagine one of the Florida schools would be appropriate. FSU already declined (Bobby knew all those NC’s in the 90s wouldn’t come so easy in the SEC). Miami likes to hop, they certainly could fit the bill.

Also, North Carolina would be a great addition. Similar to Kentucky in a lot of ways. They have a nice inerconference rival in Duke though.

I suppose taking a Big 12 team could work and shifting one of the West SEC teams to the East (Auburn maybe?).

Bottom line is this though, Kentucky ain’t going anywhere. They’d be fools to do so. They get paid being in the SEC.

Two-quarterback systems rarely work (other than 3rd and Tebow), since they have a different rhythm that gets disrupted when they switch. Even if they both had different functions, defenses would know which QB was going to do what, especially with Bobo’s predictable play calling.

take clemson,it is a natural choice for the sec.

georgia is very fortunate to have some very talented young qb’s, and it makes sense that their battles could last well into the coming season.

if alabama won a championship with a redshirt froshman qb, there is no reason uga could not do likewise.

the defense will be awesome as the new coaches cut loose the talented players the dawgs have now!

How does a kid actually play QB for 4 years in high school and “have trouble with his footwork”? I played QB in high school and the first two weeks all you do is work on footwork drills, not to mention the off-season drills you are supposed to be doing. Spring practice was even more about such fundamentals. The QBs always stayed after regular practice to work on such things as well. Aren’t these kids getting coached in high school, especially at a high school in a state which claims to be one of the best high school football states in the country? Makes no sense to me.

Buck doesn’t know squat. He didn’t do anything except hand it off to #34. Logan Gray has no business at QB. Gray could serve as Durham’s backup. Murray and Mettenburger should be battle for #1. Gray could and should be #3 on the chart, and Matson due to age will be our #4 QB.

Texas to the Big 10? What a joke. Texas would destroy anyone in that conference. As I recall, I think South Carolina was previously part of the ACC. Switch them out with GA Tech or Clemson.

Fantasy conferences: Ark.to the Big 12 replaced by FSU. KY.& Vandy to a basketball conference (the ACC)& replaced in the SEC by Clemson & Ga.Tech. Louisville replaces FSU in the ACC. That still works for me.

I am more concerned about lack of depth at CB than our QB. 2 spring practices and 2 fall camps s/b enough time to get a QB ready. Check out the “spring practice roster by class” site. Only 4 CB’s listed.

Gatorbait 17-3, I agree with you on the Vandy for FSU–nothing against Vandy; I have alot of respect for them. They always play tougher than their record would indicate. If any team looks past them and shows up unprepared they may have their head handed to them. However, Vandy would be a dominant team in the ACC (as would SC or MS State) and that would make it a good move for them and would make the Mighty SEC even tougher as FSU rebuilds.

As for our QB situation–I only see upside to such an embarrassment of riches. We have nothing but excellent choices–even the most likely to be red-shirted Mason.

I’d want to see FSU or Clempson. Both already have established SEC rivals and both have much larger national and regional followings than Tech.

For FSU, it wouldn’t be an issue to play in the East (they’d play Florida every year and don’t have any other real rivalry) but for Clemson I would think they’d want to go to the West, bring Mississippi State to the East in Kentucky’s place (providing some upgrade to the East and a big upgrade to the West which, despite Alabama’s resurgence, isn’t the perennial power), and have Miss St and Arkansas play the annual East-West rivalry (MSU and UK didn’t have much and Arkansas and USC were only matched due to the timing of their arrivals) and restore Clemson-USC as their cross-conference rival.

Having had tendon problems myself, I think I understand what Murray has gone through. Murray would appear to be the guy, and I wouldnt worry about him staying healthy, as long as we have good enough trainers to stay on top of his past arm difficulties. Last year, like him or not, Cox was so obsessed with being a good QB, that he threw his arm out before the season started. Mabe why he had so many picks. I am probubly one of CMR biggest supporters, however, I do think our whole strength thing needs an upgrade, and I am sure with all the changes, that is being done. Coach Murray up, watch him closely, dont let him do the Cox thing, and I think he will be ok…….Hell the kid is tough as a pine knot and a winner to boot, I see him as a David Green type QB. I do like Gray, and big Zack too…….great back ups….but I think Murray is the man. I just hope that CMR will give the back ups a little more PT, just in case something does happen……………As far as trading teams……Trade Vandy for Clemson, in the east……Then trade Miss. State for Fla. State in the west.

5-6 vs. Top 25 Final AP Poll teams with 4 LOSSES to UNRANKED TEAMS.

Duh.

Has FAILED to PREPARE a SINGLE QUARTERBACK, ever.

Talks about VALUING THE FOOTBALL and how we have to do BETTER at VALUING THE FOOTBALL, because of ME in here.

Then, promptly goes out instead and HAS SOME OF THE WORST PERFORMANCES by his Quarterbacks on Offense EVER on ANY TEAM in the HISTORY of FOOTBALL with combined FUMBLES and INTERCEPTIONS now EXCEEDING the number of Touchdown Passes as OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR.

Plus, he cannot even line his players up and run a play without a penalty.

3rd and 10 ? Running Play. Every time.

1st down ?

Throw a Pass.

Mike Bobo is so predicable that UNRANKED TEAMS’ coaches UTTERLY take him to the DAMN CLEANERS.

Bozo put up 17 vs Florida this year after 10 last year when he got applauds from the Florida players on the sidelines politely applauding Bozo for finally scoring with a minute left the only touchdown he got with Knowshon Moreno, Matthew Stafford and AJ Green.

.

.

It has been a MISERABLE RUN with Mike Bobo as Offensive Coordinator.

There is NO OTHER WAY TO DESCRIBE IT.

Mike Bobo has NEVER BEEN OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR ANYWHERE.

But, we have to have a coach with 11 years NFL Experience to be our Defensive Coordinator, but our Offensive Coordinator can be of the same mold as all the other coach Richt hires on his “coaching staff” other than this 1 Defensive Coordinator with 11 Years NFL Experience.

No Knowledge of good play calls and no one ever said he did.

No Experience as Offensive Coordinator.

No NFL experience.

No Proof he can call plays.

In 2006 when Matthew Stafford played all 13 games, we had the NCAA Number 79 Passing Offense, the NCAA Number 90 Total Offense, the NCAA Number 70 Most Penalties in the nation, and we topped all that off with 22 FUMBLES and 16 INTERCEPTIONS.

In 2007 with Matthew Stafford how was it again that The Bulldogs AGAIN are the NCAA Number 84 Passing Offense ? How is that ? Good coaching ? The NCAA Number 74 Total Offense, the NCAA Number 85 Most Penalties, and we added in for good measure 18 FUMBLES and 10 INTERCEPTIONS.

In 2008, with Knowshon Moreno , we had the NCAA Number 56 Rushing Offense. Good Lord, with Knowshon Moreno. How should we view this ? We had NCAA Number 116 Most Penalties, and threw in 10 INTERCEPTIONS and 19 FUMBLES.

In 2009, The Bulldogs are the NCAA Number 80 Passing Offense again, the NCAA Number 75 Total Offense AGAIN, the NCAA Number 113 Most Penalties AGAIN, and contributed 23 FUMBLES and 17 INTERCEPTIONS.
.
We are going to be so much better this year on offense with the same coaching staff on offense whom YOU boo, obviously.

But heaven forbid, call me not a Bulldog, for daring to admit uh it’s the coaching on offense. Did you bother to ask the recruits of this great state with all these all-star Offensive Players why we didn’t get ANY of them ? You don’t want to face that either.

Let’s just call him, not a Bulldog.

Well….when I think of the Southeastern Conference, I think of truly SOUTHERN teams. Teams that fit our culture and traditions. While a lot of people consider Kentucky to be a Southern state, I do not accept them fully as part of the South. Kentucky did not succeed from the Union in the Civil War. Actually, many of the people from that state fought for the Yankees. If their ancestors did not have the balls to stand up for the South, then I say they have no business in our conference. Call me crazy for viewing it that way, but I do. Lexington is a very nice town and they have great traditions, but I think they are a much better fit in the Big 10.

Now, the school I would get to replace them is a difficult decision. Yes, I agree with everyone that Clemson or FSU would be a good fit. But I really don’t like too many inter-state teams in the same conference. Auburn and Alabama, Ole Miss and Miss State, and Tenn and Vandy are enough. I say bring in the North Carolina Tar Heels. They have decent football and great basketball – much like Kentucky. Plus, they represent a state that actually succeeded from the Union and fought for the South in the Civil War. I think they would be a great addition. So…Kentucky to the Big 10 and North Carolina to the SEC. Vandy can stay…they have great traditions and have a lot to offer our conference. Who cares if their football team is the worst in conference? Somebody has to be. Just my two cents.

Realign the SEC East: Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, LSU, and Tennessee. Georgia and Auburn could then play the roles of Vandy and Kentucky in the new SEC East.

Gotta agree BuLLdawg on this one. Bobo is sooooo predictable. Personally, I think Bobo is in way over his head, and it is my opinion he squanders talent. Like the 2009 season, it seems he just doesn’t “get it”. From the onset of the season, my UGA buds kept scratching our heads as to why we didn’t run the ball more. Of course, Bobo (or more like CMR) decides to RUN the ball in the GT game.

It is not good when me and my armchair QB buddies are guessing Mike’s next call, and guessing right. I can only imagine the DCs of the opposing team just licking their chops when they watch film on us.

I’m assuming CMR is seeing something in Bobo that I’m not privileged to as I sit in the stands. I would hope the offense, with the stable of RBs, gelling offensive line, killer receivers and TE, inexperience at QB, we will play a short field with runs and short dump passes……But what do I know? My GEEF check is about to be cashed, and I just have my fingers crossed for a good season

I never said we would be 0-13. We play 13 games, the good teams play 14.

8 Losses in 9 years Coach Richt Era vs team not ranked Top 25 Final AP Poll

3 wins in 11 games Coach Richt Era vs SEC teams in the Top 10 Final AP Poll

17-19 vs Top 25 Final AP Poll teams in all games in The Coach Mark Richt Era

So, if you want to figure our record the way I do, we will go 9-4 or maybe 10-3.

And, you know I said that.

9-4 or 10-3.

BuLLdawg, i understand your concern about Bobo, he needs to step up his strategic thought processes or get help from someone. I do think Aaron Murray will provide Bobo the ability to keep drives going , if Bobo doesn’t stay so predictable. ( like running every 1st and 2nd down play, then passes from the shotgun on 1st down which falls incomplete the next play is always a run right up the dang middle both situations put you in 3rd and long unless your playing Tech.) For an offense i hear is so complicated theres not alot of variations. Murray will provide Bobo stability, lets see what Bobo can do?

Yesterday, I thought we should hire BuLLdawg to be the offensive coordinator. Today, I’ve changed my mine. I think we should hire him to be the Head Coach. It is very obvious that he knows more than Coach Richt. I really can’t figure out why Damon Evans has not contacted BuLLdawg. After-all, is it not clear that he is the smartest person to have ever lived. Plus, he is so humble about it. Looks like the perfect fit as a Head Coach.

I’m also confident that his lack of experience will not be a hindrance in that being a genius should overcome that one shortcoming. I just can not imagine he has any other shortcoming based upon his brilliant posts.

AltamahaDawg- I hear you. Especially when it is 3rd and short, and CMB calls for a long strike. Or when Cox gets shaken up in the 3rd of the UF game with our backs against the wall, and cold Logan gets the honor of throwing against a future NFL DB……and to think it was incomplete. Oh well, try it again but this time let Spikes pick 6 it….yeah, okay!

The OCs job is to put players in the best possible positions to make a PLAY. I think Mike is always trying to do the unpredictable to catch the other team off guard, and usually whta happens is the play flops and the Georgia fans are left with a bovine look on their faces while the other team is laughing their azzes off.

I will tell you this.

We cannot keep this up on Offense.

Not being able to figure out just who in the hell is our best player and Starting him.

The recruits are NOT BUYING INTO this B.S.

You want to explain to why the leading rusher for UGA last season, Washaun Ealey was REDSHIRTED until the 3rd Quarter of the 5th Game ?

No.

Don’t explain it to me.

Explain it to ALL THE RECRUITS, since of the 500 all-stars in this state on Offense, we got NONE.

Well, we got a Running Back who is INJURED and by his own admission, he is slow.

That’s all we got of all the all-star offensive players in this state.

For an Offense that in fact averages # 75 Passing # 75 Rushing # 75 Total Offense.

Oh, it’s so wonderful, we return 10 of our 11 Offense Starters.

Good news or BAD news ?

Explain to me or the recruits if you prefer, why it took until game 12 of 13 games to make Orson Charles Starting TE ?

Pregnant pause.

I will wait that answer too.

We have our best Running Back in THREE (3) DECADES, and redshirt him so we only get to see him play only 2 years.

When we did decide to play him, he runs the ball 14 times per game against Alabama, Georgia tek and Florida. WE LOSE ALL 3.

We have the # 56 Rushing Attack, and that was WITH KNOWSHON MORENO.

We have Matthew Stafford. What do we rank in passing ?

I’ll wait.

You go look it up.

We cannot figure out who to start.

We cannot figure out who to have the ball or what to do when we have our best players at the position.

Matthew Stafford Passing is # 79 in the NCAA 2006 and # 85 in the nation in 2007.

Ok, pea-brains, what does that tell you ?

Now, I know Aron White had such a great Freshman year with his 3 catches all season long; but that is why until game 12 of a 13-game season that Orson Charles is BENCHED as the Starter in favor of Aron White. 3 freshman year catches. Orson Charles had 23 his freshman year. At what point did our Offensive Coaching Staff figure it out that Orson Charles has to START ?

Game 12 of a 13 game season.

There’s more. A lot more.

Would you agree we feature 2 of the best Fullbacks ?

Well ?

Would you, or wouldn’t you ?

So, we are struggling losing games to the likes of Oklahoma State who was NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25 by the way for last year, losing games to the likes of Kentucky last year a 7-6 team, losing games to the likes of 7-6 Tennessee vols last year, and we cannot for the life of us figure out how to run the football.

They said our OL Coach is great beyond measure.

They said our OL recruits are great beyond all measure and deep and talented.

But, we cannot run the ball.

Is any of this coming back to you from just last year ?

Or, are you a blithering idiot with an 86 IQ ?

DISNEYdawg.com

So, do we hand the football to either Fullback ?

Do you know ?

Shaun Chapas 7 rushes for 45 yards on the entire freaking season.

Season of well duh maybe I guess we need to er uh rip the redshirt off Washaun Ealey now er uh in the uh 3rd quarter of the er uh 5th game.

Fred Munzenmaier 10 rushes for 37 yards.

Do you WONDER why we have NO FULLBACK RECRUITS ?

Do you want ME to recruit against UGA Bulldogs ? I would eat us up and spit us out recruiting against us.

Just to cement this thought into your itty-bitty teeny-weenie pea-brains UGA Bulldogs’ Offensive Coaching Staff :

(1)You had no running back. You had zero running game.
(2)You are LOSING games you SHOULD HAVE won.
(3)You ripped the redshirt off what ended up best RB 3rd quarter 5th game.
(4)This following having done the SAME to KNOWSHON MORENO.
(5)Mack Brown er uh he just wanted go to Florida, bad guy right ?
(6)You are 2-7 vs Florida but er uh UGA Best in SEC Coach Richt Era.
(7)Not coaches on Offense’s Fault. Nah, can’t lay that blame on them.
(8)None of the Offensive coaches played position they are COACHING.
(9)None of them.
(10)When you did rip redshirt off Washaun Ealey DID NOT START.
(11)Best Tailback, 11th best recruit in nation, NOT STARTER.
(12)RIPPED REDSHIRT OFF but of 13 games, he STARTS 2.
(13)2.
(14)2 starts Washaun Ealey ALL SEASON LONG.
(15)Washaun Ealey 717 yards 5.7 per carry WASTED TALENT.
(16)Knowshon Moreno WASTED TALENT 14 rush Ga tek FL AL.
(17)In 13 games Chapas & Munzenmaier get less than a carry each per game.

Now, what is wrong with this picture ?

Er uh, duh, I dunno.

Uh it’s the damned players, right er uh I mean it can’t be the offensive coaching staff’s fault, not with all of us so great, er uh maybe it was at a different position that I ever played this bloody game, but er uh, I’m great at what I do.

Just look at the results.

You want to KNOW what HAPPENED in the RECRUITING ?

It’s just you DISNEYdawg that thinks the 17-year old kids are ALL WRONG.

I happen to agree with them.

I have had season tickets.

I have been to more games in JAX than all of you combined.

I go to the bowl games.

I am a graduate with honors.

That’s of UGA.

I am not so blinded by the desire for my team to do well that I look at LSU and Florida both with better records than UGA in the Coach Richt Era, and say that we are better.

I also am aware that Alabama has also left us in the dust, now too.

8 years in a row UGA has had a better ranked football team than the Tennessee vols, so why is that we have lost to the vols HALF 4 of those games ?

8 inexplicable losses in the Coach Richt Era to teams NOT RANKED Final AP Poll Top 25.

How do you do that ?

How do we have no QB ready again this year ?

We ask Logan Gray in his 5th year here to go play Wide Out ?

It does not take a genius to determine that it is not I, but YOU yourself who question the decisions by the Offensive Coaching Staff in Coach Richt Era. I am not the only person sitting there booing the play calls. YOU are.

BuLLdawg, Did it ever dawn on you that a vast majority of the time CWM’s “defense” had the offense in positions where it was nigh impossible to succeed? When you’re always playing from behind it’s much easier for the opposing defense to pin it’s ears back and stuff whatever it is you’re trying to do. IF CTG is as advertised, we’ll have enough play makers to get the job done on offense. Settle down.

bulldawg..i noticed you gave stats for this past year where uga started more under classmen than just about the whole sec. so go back to your tech computer and give us the stats how uga and bobo offense ranked in the sec since 2006 when stafford and bobo were running the show. those stats are more important than those other meaningless stats you gave earlier.

bulldawg..this offense is fine and it will always be fine with richt and bobo there. they will have ups and downs just like every other team out there. just relax and enjoy the winning ways of richt and company these next 15 years or so. richt titles will come soon and when they do i guess you will stay on the tech blogs ripping pj high school offense,,=)

and when you do pull up those stats just keep in mine how many of those years uga had more underclassmen playing than upperclassmen.

you will see that when uga has more jrs and seniors playing that those stats are way better than when uga has fresh and sophs playing.

also keep in mind that richts wins at just about 80 percent of the time with or without more jrs or seniors playing. all schools go through this when they have players either leave early for the nfl or after there senior year. uga will always recruit well with richt and company there and i have no worries with them coaching uga’s team.

the only stat that matters is wins and losses and richt wins with the best of them. so could you just go back to the tech blog and stay.

again..his coaching staff is just fine. when they have 3 to 4 years with their players, the results are top notch. richt staff is one of the topps in college football just about every year. the players just need time to learn the system which takes 3 or so years for most players. the better ones figure out faster of course but the avg player needs time. that goes for all college sports.

Coach Richt beat 3 Top 10 teams in The SEC in the Final AP Poll.

That’s very good.

I like beating 3 Top 10 teams in The SEC in the Final AP Poll.

David Greene beat vols who ended up in the Top 10 Final AP Poll # 4 vols 2001

He never accomplished it again.

DJ Shockley beat the LSU Tigers in 2005 who was # 6 Final AP Poll LSU 2005.

Oh, yeah Matthew Stafford beat # 9 Final AP Poll Auburn in 2006.

None since and none otherwise.

We have played in fact 11 games against SEC Top 10 teams in the Final AP Poll.

Won 3

Lost 8

3 Final AP Poll Top 10 teams we beat # 9 Auburn 2006, # 6 LSU 2005 and # 4 vols 2001.

Certainly, # 13 GA tek this season is a great win, # 13 Florida 2007 is a great win, # 15 Auburn 2007 is a great win, # 9 Auburn 2006 is a great win, # 6 LSU 2005 is a great win, # 15 vols in 2003 is a great win David Greene, # 14 Auburn and # 11 Alabama 2002 are both great wins David Greene, and the 2001 David Greene win over the vols # 4 is a great win the win that knocked the cap off UGA’s program trying to repair ourselves after the Ray Goof Era still all those years later.

INCONSISTENT B.S.

17 WINS I love every 1 of over Final AP Poll Top 25 teams.

27 LOSSES to Final AP Poll Top 25 teams or teams UNRANKED.

19-18 vs. The Top 5 SEC teams in the Coach Richt Era.

Ray Goof would not have won those 17 against Final AP Poll Top 25, none of them.

17 WINS I love every 1 of over Final AP Poll Top 25 teams.

27 LOSSES to Final AP Poll Top 25 teams or teams UNRANKED.

19-18 vs. The Top 5 SEC teams in the Coach Richt Era.

I am not saying fire Coach Richt. His entire coaching staff, is quite another matter – as I have detailed the lack of experience by each of them at the position they are coaching and their :

It’s a 14-game season and we average 10 wins.

Satisfied ? I’d rather Coach Richt than anyone else.

But, I don’t care for his coaching staff one damn bit.

If you can’t hear that, that sir, is your problem – not mine.

I am NOT satisfied with this offense, and YOU ARE atl-xmen by the way, why have I never seen that handle in my lifetime ?

Enter your comments Mike Bobo, one of the most prolific passers in University of Georgia history, was promoted to offensive coordinator in December, 2006, after serving as quarterbacks coach the previous six years. He was brought back home by head coach Mark Richt in January, 2001, after serving one year as assistant coach at Jacksonville State University and two years as an administrative assistant and graduate assistant at UGA in 1998 and ‘99.

During his eight years at UGA, he has been part of a staff that has led Georgia to 82 victories, two SEC championships, three SEC Eastern Division titles, six bowl victories, and six top ten finishes in the final national polls including No. 2 in 2007 and No. 3 in 2002.

Coaching Experience:
1998, Georgia (Administrative Assistant); 1999, Georgia (Graduate Assistant); 2000, Jacksonville State (QB’s); 2001-present,Georgia (Quarterbacks); 2007-09, Georgia (Offensive Coordinator/QB’s)

Playing Experience:
Georgia (1993-97) — Finished his playing career ranked second in the Georgia record books in passing yards (6,334), pass attempts (766), pass completions (445), and TD passes (38)… team captain in 1996 and 1997.. .MVP of the 1998 Outback Bowl… Thomasville H.S. (1990-93) — USA Today Georgia Player of the Year…Atlanta Journal-Constitution Class AAA Offensive Player of the Year… broke every school and region career passing mark and the Georgia high school career yardage record.

He’s also coached Matthew Stafford, the first pick of the 2009 NFL draft (Lions), and the winningest quarterback in NCAA Division 1-A history–David Greene–who won 42 games as a starter and set the Bulldog and SEC records for Career Passing Yards (11,528). In 2002, the Bulldogs finished as the SEC’s top scoring (32.14 ppg) and pass efficiency (138.91) offense. His 2005 QB, D.J. Shockley, earned All-SEC first team honors and led the SEC in passing efficiency (148.3). Bobo also filled in as the Bulldogs’ running backs coach for part of the ‘02 season and TB Musa Smith earned consensus All-SEC honors.

A four-year letterman for the Bulldogs from 1994-97, Bobo is coaching on the same field where he became a record-setting quarterback. A native of Thomasville, Ga., Bobo finished his Bulldog career leading the team in passing in both 1996 and ‘97. He currently ranks high in the Georgia passing record books in several categories including: season completion percentage (first, 65.0%, 1997), season passing efficiency rating (first, 155.80, 1997), career pass attempts, third, 755), career pass completions (third, 445), season passing yards (third, 2,751, 1997), career passing yards (third, 6,334), season TD passes (third, 19), career TD passes (second, 38), most passing yards by a junior (second, 2,440), most passing yards by a senior (second, 3,396), and career total offense (third, 6,054).

Bobo also set a Georgia record completing 19 consecutive passes leading Georgia to a 33-6 victory over Wisconsin in the 1998 Outback Bowl. He completed 26 of 28 passes for 267 yards and one touchdown and was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.

Elected team captain (1996-97) and permanent team captain of the 1997 Bulldogs, Bobo was named the SEC’s Offensive Player of the Week twice following performances against South Carolina (19×33, 285 yards, two TD’s) and Georgia Tech (30×39, 415 yards, 4 TD’s).

As a star quarterback at Thomasville High School, Bobo was named the 1993 Georgia Player of the Year by both USA Today and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. As a senior, he completed 143×245 passes for 2,477 yards and 23 TD’s. In his career, he completed 329×590 passes for 5,167 yards and 42 TD’s. He also rushed for 15 TD’s.

He is married to the former Lainie Meshad. They have five children, a son, Drew, 4; triplets – Olivia, Jake and Ava Grace 2 and Kate born Sept. 28, 2007

the offense is a pro style offense in which i would love to play in as it will prepare me for the pros better than any other offense out there in college football. i love this style offense. you have to be smart to run it and when ran correctly( no stupid turnovers or dropped passes) is one of the most difficult to defend. this offense will always look better when more upperclassmen run it but the last few years due to injuries and jrs leaving early for the pros has led to some inconsistant play. which i will take as the end results will usually end in a victory. cant fault this staff when they ask these young players to step up and produce and they come up a little short at times. players have to step up. the coaches dont always make the right call sometimes but most of the time its the players fault for making a mistake. these mistakes will dissappear when the players become jrs and seniors. the trick is having the jrs and seniors sticking around.

Why does everybody think that not running the ball is a function of not wanting to? I am amazed at the pass that OL coach gets when disecting what has been wrong. I am not saying its all his “fault”. In all fairmess, he has hasn’t been involved with recruiting but one good year, and has been dealt some serious injuries. But its damn sure his responsibility and it seems to me that in the “blame game”, he would be a lot more obvious target than making the absurd argument that the OC doesn’t want to or attempt to run the ball, when the entire world knows better and we all saw what happened when we tried.

According to you, we had 1 great year 2008 :

We had Knowshon Moreno, AJ Green and Matthew Stafford.

2008 #56 Rush Offense #116 Most Penalties in nation 10 interceptions 19 fumbles

2008-2009 we beat really no one # 24 Michigan St no business being ranked.

The only Top 25 Final AP Poll team we beat 2008 ? Number 24 Michigan State.

Michigan State had NO DAMN BUSINESS BEING RANKED in the Top 25.

And, YOU SIR, know that.

LOST 2008 to Georgia tek # 22, otherwise they aren’t ranked.

LOST 2008 to Alabama, who has a LOT better coaching staff than us, too.

LOST 2008 to Florida, 2-7 vs. Florida who owns Coach Richt’s coaching staff.

We started the season 2008 as # 1 team in the nation. The 1st time ever for any Georgia Bulldog football team.

We then gave up

31 consecutive points to Alabama

42 consecutive points to Florida

29 consecutive points to Georgia tek

Played not 1 Top 25 Final AP Poll team, except those 3 all season.

LOST all those 3.

Played a horrible Michigan State team in a meaningless bowl game no one watched, not considered a good bowl game against a good bowl opponent.

Ended up DROPPING 13 places in the polls.

Had we started out # 13 as we ended up on the Final AP Poll Top 25, we WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN RANKED AT ALL.

And, you think that is great ?

Some of you get too worked up about Richt and his “staph”. Richt will probably be history in a couple years, and you won’t have to worry about Bobo’s ability or lack thereof. Let Richt get his highly paid, some would say overpaid, “butt” kicked by Urban a time or two more—thank the Lord Saban’s off the schedule for awhile—and old Mark will be hitting the road just like Willie. I bet old Willie can’t wait.

Isn’t it true that most teams play a schedule that insures them 5, 6, or depending on the conference, maybe 7 wins……just couldn’t it be that teams aren’t beating the teams that they must to achieve a nice winning %…just think how bad everyone thought last season was and yet the team still had 8 wins…

Take a look at the 2010 schedule…does this strike fear into anyone; looks like 7 sure wins and a few more big possibilities for the “W column”…

Louisiana, South Carolina, Ark, Miss St, Colorado, Tenn, Vandy, Kentucky, Fla, Idaho St, Auburn, Tech…who’s the toughies on this schedule? Tenn, Kentucky have new HC’s, South Carolina lost their all world LB, Fl, lost just about everyone, Auburn is still rebuilding, Colorado hasn’t fielded a a strong team for long while, then you have Idaho State, so I guess it’s just Ark & Ga Tech who have the best chance of victories…so there you have it, another at least 8 or maybe 10 win season…UGA has the horses to make this their year, planets are aligned…it looks like the making of a good season…the coaching could be the difference between playing for the NC, or Tampa and the OutBack Bowl…

Oh Great Dog of BuLL, I am going to lay it out for you my friend. Championship teams are built from the top down, and by top I don’t mean Evans and Richt. Can you picture a weding cake? Good! Try to follow along now, the bottom layer is the players, next comes the assistant coaches, then Richt and Evans, next is Adams and the Trusrees, then the Gov, ‘ol Sonny himself. Now Sonny would like to win a BCSNC, he played at UGA, and Adams would like his picture made with a crystal football, and the Trustees would like to win also. But there is one problem with this happy picture, Sonny and the Trustees don’t want to spend any more money and Adams is their yes man. Could Richt have hired a better OC than Bobo? Yep! Would the higher ups have paid for it? Nope! Could Richt have had his indoor practice field? Yes. Would the Trustees approve the spending? Well, you can answer that. Could Evans have built a top knotch bball program? Yes again! He won’t though, because the Trustees and the big money boys don’t give a damn about basketball. If the higher ups at UGA cared about bball at all UGA would have had an elite program 40 years ago. If they cared about a NC at UGA 1980 would not have been the last NC. While I am at it, you blame Bobo for UGA’s problems in recruiting, well chew on this. Would you like to go to a town where you are arrested for jaywalking, or making an illegal turn on a Mo-Ped, or driving a scooter without a liscence? Then a certain Trustee beats his neighbor bloody in broad daylight and because he is a Trustee and white and rich he doesn’t spend one night in jail. If I was a streetwise young black athlete Athens is the last place I would go. So ‘ol buddy, Richt and Bobo are what we have and we are lucky to have them. You might as well relax and enjoy the season because as long as that cash cow keeps churning out the dough Adams and Sonny’s boys ain’t changing a thing.

So, RED DOG 77, you say that Coach Richt has admitted that Mike Bobo is 1 not getting the job done and 2 needs help in this On-the-Job-Training Program of handing Mike Bobo the Offensive Coordinator Job when he just isn’t ready yet. You say that Coach Richt could see that Bobo was not ready yet.

.

Excuse me, that is what I have been saying all along.

And, I have proved it.

2009 we beat Georgia tek ranked # 13 in the Final AP Poll, which hardly salvages the season with 3 Losses to teams NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25 in Loss to Kentucky 7-6, Loss to Oklahoma State not in the Top 25 Final AP Poll and Loss to Tennessee vols 7-6. And, don’t forget that LSU beat not 1 Top 25 Final AP Poll team all season long and we lost to them too. We also Lost to Top 25 Florida team we played in addition to all these Losses against teams NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25 and to LSU who beat no one.

2009 we had poor games on Offense against Oklahoma State, Arizona State, LSU, Tennessee vols, Florida and Kentucky.

2008 we beat NO Top 25 Final AP Poll team except for Michigan State, who had no business whatsoever being ranked in the Top 25 Final AP Poll. That is IT for wins in 2008. As for Losses, we gave up 31, 42 and 29 consecutive points and no that does not mean that just the Defense needed new coaching staff to give up consecutive points over 5 and 7 touchdowns, it means the offense was not performing as well, very clearly. 31 consecutive points and Loss to Alabama. 42 consecutive points and Loss to Florida and 29 consecutive points and Loss to Georgia tek. This for the only Bulldog football team EVER ranked # 1 to begin the season. This year 2008 was very simply one of the most disappointing years in Bulldog history. Had we started the season at # 13 where we ended up in the Final AP Poll, we would NOT have been ranked. Michigan State ? That makes us a Top 25 team ? I think not. Michigan State is the ONLY Top 25 Final AP Poll team we beat and they had no business whatsoever being ranked at all.

2008 We had poor games on Offense against South Carolina, Florida, Auburn, Michigan State, Arizona State, and Vandie.

2007 We completed the entire sweep by the whole SEC East in consecutive losses by losing the 1st game of the year against SEC East competition to South Carolina scoring only 12 points and for good measure we lost the Next SEC East Game too taking us completely out of the picture in the SEC East and removed ourselves from the National Stage, with only a lousy bowl opponent # 19 Hawaii in the Final AP Poll. We never get to play a great opponent in a big National State Bowl Game against a Great Opponent. Not under Coach Richt we have NOT.

2007 We had poor games on Offense against Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee vols and Vandie.

2006 We beat # 19 Virginia Tech and # 9 Auburn. We Lost to the vols who ended up # 25 Final AP Poll otherwise the vols are not ranked. We Lost to Vandie, Lost to Florida, Lost to Kentucky. Vandie lost 8 games 2006 but not to us. Kentucky was another unranked team besides Vandie we Lost to in 2006. This was a very disappointing year losing to EVERY SEC East team except for South Carolina, whom we promptly went right out and lost to to begin the 2007 campaign scoring 12 points.

2006 We had poor games on Offense against Colorado, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Vandie, Mississippi State, Florida, Kentucky, and Georgia tek.

2006 #79 Pass Offense #90 Total Offense #70 Penalty 16 interceptions 22 fumbles

2007 #84 Pass Offense #74 Total Offense # 85 Penalty 10 interceptions 18 fumbles

2008 #56 Rush Offense #116 Most Penalties in nation 10 interceptions 19 fumbles

2009 #80 Pass Offense #75 Total Offense #113 Penalty 17 interceptions 23 fumbles

8 Losses in 9 years Coach Richt Era vs team not ranked Top 25 Final AP Poll

3 wins in 11 games Coach Richt Era vs SEC teams in Top 10 Final AP Poll

17-19 vs Top 25 Final AP Poll teams in all games The Coach Mark Richt Era

Coach Richt succeeded from Offensive Coordinator in 2006 giving that title to Neil Callaway until his DUI 2006, when Mike Bobo was the Quarterbacks’ Coach and now you say Coach Richt is taking that job over too, according to you RED DOG 77.

.

Coach Richt Era compared to. Final AP Poll Top 25 teams :

LOST 2009 to Oklahoma State, UNRANKED Final AP Top 25.

LOST 2009 to LSU # 17, otherwise they aren’t ranked, LSU beat no one..

LOST 2009 to vols UNRANKED 7-6 team otherwise not winning record.

LOST 2009 to Florida, 2-7 vs. Florida who owns Coach Richt.

LOST 2009 to Kentucky UNRANKED 7-6 team otherwise not winning record.

LOST 2008 to Georgia tek # 22, otherwise they aren’t ranked.

LOST 2008 to Alabama, who has better coach too.

LOST 2008 to Florida, 2-7 vs. Florida who owns Coach Richt.

LOST 2007 to South Carolina UNRANKED 6-6 not even in bowl game.

LOST 2007 to vols, who therefore Won SEC East thanks to blowout.

LOST 2006 to vols, # 25 otherwise they aren’t ranked – obviously too.

LOST 2006 to Vandie UNRANKED a 4-8 team for God’s sake. B.S.

LOST 2006 to Florida, 2-7 vs. Florida who owns Coach Richt.

LOST 2006 to Kentucky UNRANKED Vandie and KY not good teams.

What are you saying RED DOG 77 that Coach Richt was asleep at the wheel ? Not doing his job ? That now according to you without any quote of Coach Richt, that Coach Richt is taking back over the play calls ? That now according to you without any quote of Coach Richt, that Coach Richt says Mike Bobo is not ready to be Offensive Coordinator.

More excuses than a pregnant Nun. Now, the excuse is that Coach Richt knew it all along that Mike Bobo has not been teaching the Quarterbacks here a damn thing and could not perform that job, and that Coach Richt knew it all along that Mike Bobo OJT as OC did NOT work out either, obviously, and is going to take over the play calls again and decide just who in the hell gets redshirted and who does not, and who starts and who does not.

“CMR saw that coach Bobo was not quite ready to handle the O all by himself.” RED DOG 77

We have to spend $750,000 for 11-year NFL Veteran Defensive Coordinator and more than that for the rest of the Defensive Staff, but the issues on Offense, RED DOG 77 says Coach Richt knew all along and now will do all that by himself, and recruit, and be head coach, and decide all the Offense’s WASTED TALENT, and all the color schemes for our uniforms and and answer all the press interviews and figure out who is going to be the Special Teams’ coach and how to improve on our kick-off coverage playing our better players, not walk-ons, and getting involved more in his not wanting to play the game in JAX every year, and figuring out who to vote for in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll, and lobbying for our bowl opponent finally just 1 time in 10 years now to be an actual top-ranked team on The National Stage.

Mr. BuLLdawg…….What I said was: CMR said he was going to take a more’ hands on’ role with the QBs and O. Yes, and I did say, though coach Mike Bobo is very bright, CMR sees that handling all of the O duties, plus QB coaching might be a little premature at this time. Thats a pretty big job to handle by ones self, wouldnt you say Bd………..See there you can make a point with just a few lines. ……….Now BuLLdawg…….go to work, or get a job, or go play tennis, or ride your bike, skip a rope, play some checkers, take your meds, go to bed…..just leave me the heck alone, you make my butt burn……so dadgummitt, go away !

“Joe Cox’ sore arm had ZERO to do with….POOR DECISIONS. OR HIS LEAD ON CROSSING PATTERNS. He THREW as well as anybody, especially the long ball. And his arm had nothing to with NOT BEING ABLE TO RUN THE BALL. THAT’S what we all saw how that worked out.”

Thats what I said. But of cource you knew that. This being your 3rd attempt at your pitiful little insult.

Joe Cox’ THROWING mechanics were fine. His sore arm , which you contended was the reason we do NOT want Murray as QB, and its not why we lost games. “we tried a QB with a sore arm, and we all saw how that worked out”. Oh really? we saw the sore arm was the culprit? we all saw that did we? and anybody who ever had a sore arm can never be a good QB? from now on? Because every case is exactly the same? So we all saw how we don’t want Murray now??????Huh genious.

It’s interesting how you question why we did play a sore arm, but you slam the coaching staff for not playing an injured RB sooner. Hm, now what could the agenda be?

Oh no it wasnt pressure from not being able to run the ball till the season was mostly over, it was his “sore arm”. That was the problem, atl-xmen, his sore arm. Of cource that certainly muddies the argument that it was all play calling, because as we all saw, you can never have any success with a QB having a sore arm.

joe cox arm was fine enough to throw 20 plus tds. when a defense doesnt have to worry about a running game it becomes really hard to throw against them as they can blitz like crazy and stay back to cover the receivers. even though joe was not sacked that much he was hurried and had to get rid of the ball alot soone than he would have liked. joe played fine last year considering what he had around him. should have been 10-3 if not for a blown call by the ref in the lsu game and a mess up by a truefreshmen running back on the goalline in the ky game. not bad at all.

The future looks bright for us, and that’s no different at the quarterback position. Someone’s going to have to step up for us. There’s two redshirt freshmen and one true freshman. Someone’s going to have to become the man and take the ball and run with it. I think they’re excited. I think we’re all excited about the opportunity that we have. I think Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger would say the same thing that Coach Bobo is one of the best in the country at preparing you for a game.

Jim Schwartz, the coach of the Lions, said that Matthew Stafford was the most prepared NFL quarterback rookie that he’d ever coached coming out of college. I think that speaks volumes of Coach Bobo being able to prepare you and know what’s going on. So I think us quarterbacks will be pretty comfortable knowing what’s going on even though we’re pretty young.

Logan Gray will NOT be the UGA QB next season. Bank on it! You don’t put a QB out to return punts if you’re actually planning on starting him down the road. DJ Shockley could have returned punts but the coaching staff didn’t want to risk getting him hurt. They might put Logan in some different packages especially on the goal line. But he won’t be the guy next year: it will be Mettenberger or Murray.

That is exactly the point that I’m trying to DRIVE HOME when I scream:
“RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUN THE DAMN’ BALL”… Hello CMR and CMB

Recruit and coach up enough high quality O linemen and running backs to be able to establish a dominant running game FIRST. If you want a great passing game, you’ve got to have an even greater running game. When the defense has to adjust to stop the run, the great passing games will SHHHHHHINE!!!!

It is a MUST if we are SERIOUS about SEC and NATIONAL TITLES, but don’t take my word for it ask Coach Dooley!

Isn’t it obvious that you have to win the big games! You know, the games that UGA looses every year. Beat up on the chumps, raise the win total , but flop in the big games. This has to change, and lets hope that this is the year. There must be a clear cut QB coming out of the Spring Game. I think that by now Bobo knows who should be the starter, and needs to exert all of his effort to getting this person ready. With the schedule being so favorable, this should/could be the year.

I would like to see UGA be the lead dog and get an unubstructed view of top of the polls for a change.

Wouldn’t having to beat out the other guys BE the best way to get the eventual starter ready for the fall? The game is a competition after all.

Not to mention, havent we learned that the second stringer needs to be able to do more than hold a good clipboard?

LOST 2001 to South Carolina # 13. David Greene.

LOST 2001 to Florida. David Greene.

LOST 2001 to Auburn UNRANKED 7-5 team. David Greene.

LOST 2001 to Boston College # 22 otherwise aren’t ranked David Greene.

David Greene’s Freshman year, you seem to have forgotten altogether. We were UNRANKED in the Final ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Poll and in the AP Poll # 22 barely made the list. The win over what ended up Tennessee vols as # 4 in the nation was the ONLY WIN OVER A TOP 10 Final AP Poll Team in David Greene’s entire career. Then, he went to the NFL and stunk up every preseason game, and I do mean stunk it up. David Greene’s NFL career ended with him NEVER GETTING 1 SINGLE SNAP in the NFL. We read your B.S. about David Greene’s Freshman year and how you liken that to what Aaron Murray will do this year, summarizing that as we will be OK. Excuse me David Greene’s Freshman Year, our reward for that horrible season was the Music City Bowl, which we LOST.

8-4

We play 14-game seasons nowadays, and you think we will be just fine and the same as David Greene did his Freshman Year 2001 with 8 wins including the bowl game.

Bubba, we have another 8-win season this season in a 14-game season and Coach Richt can hit the road son.

Whether you join him or not, doesn’t matter to me.

4 LOSSES AGAIN Matthew Stafford’s Freshman Year. In a 14-game Season, Matthew Stafford never got to play 14 games. That is because he was eaten alive by SEC East teams. Never got out of his own Division. Then, I come in here and you say, atl-xmen, that Matthew Stafford’s Freshman Season was great beyond all measure. LOSS to VANDERBILT and LOSS to KENTUCKY and LOSS to TENNESSEE vols and LOSS TO FLORIDA. The ONLY SEC East team Matthew Stafford beat in his Freshman Year was South Carolina, and he PROMPTLY corrected that the next year going out and LOSING TO South Carolina 12-16 to start the 2007 season and followed that right up with the LOSS to the Tennessee vols 2007 to make it 6 in a ROW SEC East teams who beat the crap out of Matthew Stafford. But, according to YOU atl-xmen, the way you recall 2006 Matthew Stafford’s freshman season, his 4-LOSS SEASON is better than what you expect of Aaron Murray you say for this season because, well, no one can go out his Freshman Year and have the kind of year that Matthew Stafford had his freshman year for UGA. Again, Matthew Stafford had UGA ranked # 23 in the Final AP Poll 2006 his Freshman Year. And, our reward for that horrible season was the Peach Bowl.

Joe Cox

5 years coached by Mike Bobo, 5 years :

31 rushes minus 28 yards 0 touchdowns rushing

13 games 15 Interceptions

We intercepted 10 by comparison with an all senior backfield

Scoring Joe Cox 0

Starter all 13 games scored 0 points as QB for The University of Georgia, -0-

Our Opponents had more TD passes, more completions, higher completion percentage, for more yards, and for more yards per completion, and a higher passing efficiency rating than did Joe Cox.

UGA All Purpose Yardage Leader was a return man because Joe Cox could NOT distribute the football.

5 LOSSES

Oklahoma State he scored 10 points against. 10. Not ranked Top 25 Final AP Poll

LSU 13 points he scored. LSU beat not 1 Top 25 team, but they damn sure beat Joe Cox.

Tennessee Joe Cox scored 19 points vs 7-6 vols who otherwise have LOSING RECORD.

Florida Joe Cox scored 17 points. Alabama slaughtered them, but we could do nothing.

Kentucky another 7-6 UNRANKED team who otherwise also has a LOSING RECORD Joe Cox lost to.

105 Penalties for 878 yards, the Offense was 1st and 15 every game

23 Fumbles by us with Joe Cox as QB. When we didn’t fumble or penalty, we threw interception.

And, you and AltamahaDawg come running in here to tell all the rest of us how Great Joe Cox was.

3 OL recruited 2009 by Coach Richt 2 are not considered that great coming in.

3 OL recruited 2008 by Coach Richt 1 again not considered great coming in.

8 OL recruited 2007 by Coach Richt 2 are JUCO gone now, 2 more from Hargrave Military School with grades issues of which 1 got a snap in only 2 games all season last year Harden, another who is ranked # 71 in the country who misses run block after run block, another who has taken a snap in only 14 of 39 games since he was recruited and didn’t play all of those 14 games in other words took a snap in less than a third of the games since he was recruited, another not considered that great who has only seen a snap in 13 of the 39 games and only started 3, another Chris Little who never took 1 snap not 1 and left the program the same week Coach Richt announced 2 others had left for off-field arrests/suspensions of which Coach Richt has had WAY TOO MANY OF, and so there you have your salvation, your great OL line class of 2007. Of the 8, only 5 remain and then you redshirted 1 of the 3 from 2008 giving you 6 Juniors this coming season on the OL. Now, you know who they are.

5 OL recruited by Coach Richt 2006 and yet we only have 3 Senior OL this coming season. Of the 5 one was ranked better than # 90 in the country. 1. And, of course Boling was arrested/suspended for the Opening Game the year before last.

1 OL recruited by Coach Richt 2005 Ian Smith who was not considered that great.

2 OL recruited by Coach Richt 2004 and 1 of those 2 was not considered that great, never got a start for UGA took a snap in only a couple of games and then quit the program after just 2 years.

What in the hell did you expect to have happen with this kind of recruiting 10 years into the Coach Richt Era now with this chronic recruiting for the OL.

I come in here and say how poorly we have done at recruiting consistently for the OL for every year since 2001 when Coach Richt started this lack of OL at UGA a recurring theme never-ending. And, you ? You run in here and spin that into we didn’t have a good OL last year.

D.A. That is what I have been saying all along, only you use it as an EXCUSE.

Someone needs to get back on their meds. Seriously soon.

Richt promoted Bobo and trained him so if there are deficiencies it falls back on Richt. If the team commits too many penalties, it falls back on richt.

Richt is under tremendous pressure to get things back to SEC champion level. My guess is that Murray gives us the best shot at doing that because he has the ability to run and throw and is someone who has shown the ability to overcome adversity(injuries).
