Take away A.J. Green and you have a team that’s good only at finding a way to lose

Blair Walsh is getting the call way too many times inside the red zone. (Associated Press)

The past few weeks amid all the plugs for the Hilltop Grille in Athens on the Georgia football radio network’s “Bulldog Brunch” Kevin Butler has been lamenting that this year’s Dogs, specifically the offense, have yet to find their identity.

Unfortunately, I think he’s wrong. They have found their identity; it’s just not one that the Bulldog Nation wants to acknowledge:

This is a team that in the face of impending victory will find a way to lose.

It used to be if a Mark Richt team was within a score of the lead and got the ball back with 3-plus minutes on the clock, everyone (including opponents) had a fairly certain feeling the Dogs would prevail.

This year, they get the opportunity to win a game and you find yourself sitting there thinking, “How are they going to screw this up?”

I hate that.

Where once there was hope, now there’s mostly resignation. And the way they’ve been playing, you’ve got to wonder if that doesn’t apply to the players as well as the fans.

Sorry, the residual supply of optimism that has always fueled my Bulldog fandom is running a bit low right now. Chances are by midweek I’ll have talked myself into thinking Georgia stands a good chance of beating Tennessee Saturday and getting back on track.

But the reality is that even if they do get back on track, at this point about the best we can expect is a mediocre season.

At a birthday brunch Sunday (coincidentally at that same Hilltop Grille) I asked the assembled family members for revised season record predictions. The consensus was Georgia probably is looking at a losing record or, under the most optimistic scenario even remotely based in reality, a 6-6 record and qualifying for a bottom-feeder bowl. And we’re all die-hard fans. It’s gotten that bad.

Watching the game against Colorado again on video Sunday morning, I could see some slivers of justification for thinking the Dogs still can turn things around (all of which involve A.J. Green and Aaron Murray), but much more evidence that this is a team that just plain doesn’t know how to win, from the coaches on down.

A few random observations in that regard …

What sort of muddle-headed pregame planning possibly could have resulted in the way Mike Bobo opened up the game offensively? Starting Carlton Thomas, our smallest back, and insisting on trying mostly in vain to run him up the middle? Not immediately getting the ball into the hands of Green, your best player? The result: An appalling 15 yards of offense in the first 15 minutes.

Even Richt seemed to be wondering what was up with that when he said at halftime, “I don’t know what took us so long to get him the ball.”

For the evening, on the first-quarter possessions when Green didn’t touch the ball and the third-quarter series when he wasn’t in, the Dogs accumulated minus-5 yards and one first down. Never in my memory has a Georgia offense seemed so dependent on one player. …

And what is it with Bobo and the red zone? First-and-goal at the 4 and having to settle for a field goal would be bad enough if this were the first time we’d seen that sort of offensive impotence. But it’s become Bobo’s trademark. I don’t know if Richt taking over the playcalling would make any difference, but something’s got to be done. …

Every week, one defensive player seems to be positioned as the sacrificial goat for brainless play. Saturday, it was Vance Cuff, who got burned badly on a 48-yard Colorado pass and then, when they had seemingly settled for 3 points, got called for roughing the kicker on his third personal foul penalty of the night and gave the Buffaloes another shot at the end zone, resulting in a touchdown and the eventual winning margin.

But, really, it’s time blame for the Dogs’ defensive woes was assigned higher up. Stupid mistakes like Cuff made happen in a game, but too many of the flaws in Georgia’s defense appear to be the result of insufficient coaching and preparation. Todd Grantham is getting paid big bucks to fix what Willie Martinez wrought, and yet we’ve seen practically no improvement over the past four weeks. Each week, the opposing offenses offer up some basic play that the Dogs act like they’ve never seen before. And stopping third- and fourth-down conversions appears to be a foreign concept to the folks in the defensive meeting room. …

It’s been a long time since the outlook for a Georgia team was this dismal.

Also- Love AJ Green, but am I the only one who thought that he went out, put up his numbers, then got a little dinged and pulled himself? Only to leave himself an out? Show up, put some numbers up to show the scouts he still has it, only to pull himself at the slightest of sign of a injury. Why not? The team isn’t going anywhere so did he have a me first attitude?

I hope not, but with the state of this team all things seem possible.

You know right now is not the time to get all froth up about firing the entire UGA coaching staff. Really who will you replace any of them with? You are in the middle of the year and no one will entertain leaving their respective schools to take over a system in the middle of the year. The only time anything will happen on the staff front will be the final minute of the final game and even then it will take time. Who do you throw enough money at to leave, bring in his whole staff (because you will have to let go everyone here according to most), and recruit, teach and implement the new system? Good luck with that. We are stuck with what we have so deal with it for now. It is the new AD’s job to recognize and deal with the situation as I am sure he is well aware of the problems. So for now let’s just pull for the team and hope for the best. B@tching about it now will get the team no were.

Go Dawgs beat Tenn.

Still no apology from Bill. Sad to use your Blog to bash the greatest coach in UGA history. Don’t know all that is going on with CMR, but I for one am not short-sighted. CMR has done great things at UGA and as many have said here over the past weeks–he is young, talented, experienced etc. etc and he will do great things here in future. Agree with Lori and BigDawg–to fire CMR will set us back 10 years and we will be in similar shape as SMU. I am joining with Lori and BigDawg to send my letter of support in to AD today–with a check. Lets help Lori get the 5,000 letters of support to AD by weeks end. Flood the AD’s office with support–don’t let a bunch of fair weather short-sighted venom spewing folks stir up fires to get rid of our coach.

I would much rather have a coach who has steadily improved over time and NOW wins National Championships, than a coach who started out looking good, won some SEC championships, but has now gone down hill and will struggle just to have a winning season.

Richt’s smart enough to know, 99% of the negative posts on the AJC blogs, are from 1 person, using a bunch of fake handles.

You will see that while Mark is a fantastic human being, that your overall future as a business will look bleak. You will lament the loss in sales, fire every other employee to keep you business, afloat, and sit back say “Mark is great guy and I love him too death”, while you go out of business…Great logic!

We are the 11th winningest program in NCAA history!!

Therefore we should be ranked #11 in both polls!!

Why won’t the BCS rank us 11th when it comes out!! If we win out, we might get a shot at the BCSC!

Who cares if we’re 1-4?? Our history shows we’re the 11th winningest program!! Quit whining everyone!! We’re gonna be top 10 before the season is out – you people forget your history!!

What we do today doesn’t matter! We won a championship 30 years ago. Everything is just fine ….

Where’s where the Dawgs have ranked nationally in scoring offense under CMR:

Year scoring offense rank
2001 45
2002 22
2003 64
2004 45
2005 42
2006 53
2007 34
2008 33
2009 51

Having CMR take over playcalling from Bobo will not change the fact that his offense has never consistently put points on the board. When the Dawgs won under CMR was when we had good defenses (even Martinez had two top-20 scoring defenses, using BVG’s players). Time for a change.

banders1: that is because we run a pro-style offense, not a run-and-shoot or a spread. Sure TT outscored us every year, but we were also better in the rankings than they were. When you routinely only use 2:00 of clock to score, you have a lot more chances and so do your opponents.

Richt needs to fire Bobo, Searels, and the strength and conditioning coach over the offseason. There are certainly problems in the program, but getting rid of Richt is not the right solution at this point in time.

I am willing to give Grantham the benefit of the doubt since the D has been ok even though we do not have close to the right personnel for the scheme and the players have been poorly coached in years past. It is hard to break a football player of a bad habit, particularly when that habit was praised by Martinez and crew.

Bill King, why do you say that?

Why is Richt’s track record, than say Jim Donnan’s? Richt had a heck of a lot more talent than Jim did when he took over

Richt is Florida’s whipping boy
Richt has pretty much gotten sucker punched by Tennessee almost everytime he thinks he’s got something going on
Richt has tried very hard to make South Carolina a loss every year, even earlier when our talent vastly outweighed their’s.

This program showed some very scary tendencies since the 2006 Sugar Bowl (2005) when Fast Willie got exposed by West Virginia. And to my worst nightmares, those fears beared true.

Discipline went out the window.

Accountability in the program is gone.

And, by the way, the new sheriff in town has absolutely no loyalty to Richt or his staff. McGarity wants a true winner here, then he’ll prove it.

Is anybody above thinking that coaches in the SEC haven’t been whispering about the state of this program? McGarity got to see up close and personal in Jacksonville in ‘07 about what this program has ‘coaching’ wise – having the entire team storm the field and act like complete immature jacka$$e$ and spoiled-sports on national TV.

Why would anyone be loyal to this? Winning philosopy = wearing black jerseys and black helmets? If this was true, my Falcons might win 15 games this year….

Who says Greg doesn’t know better….

Unfortunately, I fear you are correct. His “past record” by the way, is mediocrity is 2005, and much worse since 2007, which wasn’t THAT great anyway….. sorry, getting creamed and beat out to the SECCG by a slightly better than average rival Tennessee team does NOT a #2 team make…..

Keep believing he will fix it, and we’ll be here talking about why he can’t get this program back above that top tier line we all covet, next year, and the next, and the next…….

I tried to tell all you dreamers that predicted a 10-2 or 11-1 season, that you had only 3 guaranteed wins on the schedule,- LaLa, Vandy and Idaho State. This was months ago, and I got ridiculed by you morons for saying that. I said that Missy St. would probably win, because they would be the most improved team in the SEC, and got ridiculed. I also said you should consider 8-4 a GREAT SEASON. Now, you are still thinking 5-3 and a chance to win the East???? You guys are more delusional that even I thought. Bottom line, you had better hope and pray for 6-6 and a trip to the Birmingham Bowl. Realistically, you are looking at a minimum of 3 more losses, and probably 4 more. I correctly predicted the demise of the irrelevent puppy football program, so you had better believe I have a good handle on the situation. Your football team is the most talented 1-4 team in the NCAA, but also possibly the worst coached team.

I have never blamed solely players nor should anybody blame only coaches. This is not peewee football, sometimes the players do not do what they are told. And sometimes coaches make mistakes in play-calling. But as I’ve mentioned before usually it’s the Jimmys and Joes more than the X’s and O’s. Sometimes the other guy makes the play and you don’t. I think all of us in the Bulldognation need to band together and support the Dawgs loudly and show a little bit of character. The guys (players,coaches, trainers) need us now more than ever and this will be a critical Saturday. Let’s show up early and be loud until the clock shows triple zeros.

jt,

Many Dawg fans are scared of going back to Ray Goff or Jim Donna days. Dawg fans will continue to give CMR a long leash b/c of his fast start.

Yes the writing has been on the wall, for a few years now. Most Dawg fans point to ‘07 and say hey he had us at #2! Well, why weren’t we #1? Because of two huge trip-ups that cost us the divison!

Not one UGA fan can or wants to admit to the utter failing of the staff in 2008. Preseason #1, the team was uber talented, but yet got shelled in every big game.

I am a realist folks. CMR has done wonders for the program on and off the field. I have the upmost respect for him, but at some point objectivity has to take place. You cannot continue to accept the downward trend of the program for fear of making a bad hire as the next coach.

Also if you think by firing CMR will make us the next SMU or set us back 10 years, then you are overstating it or know zero about the landscape of college football. If you hire the right guy (McGarity knows all about this) then you can compete immediately.

Big Dawg

October 4th, 2010

For anyone wanting to write our new AD in support of CMR, you’ll want to remember and include that CMR’s record against Florida is 2 wins and 7 losses. And please recall that Mr. McGarity was on the winning side most of those times with the Gators. He had about as close up a view as anyone could want. Is Mark Richt a nice guy? Sure. Is he loyal? Much more than he needs to be, especially for his own good. He stayed the course with Willie Martinez far too long and it almost did him in. If he keeps repeating the same behavior with the rest of the program, it surely will this time. When your HC is asked at halftime why he didn’t throw the ball to the best receiver in college football at all in the first quarter, and his answer was “I’m not sure why we didn’t throw the ball to AJ Green more?”, your program has serious issues. Your 10 years is up sir.

2005 was a very exciting year yes. We still had a very good nucleus on that team and some good veteran leadership, no doubt. Some very disturbing trends started that year, when at certain times, the defense began to leak a little like we were not used to seeing…

2006, starting with the Sugar Bowl, is where the wheels started to loosen. That 1st half defensive performace was an example of what would become a glaring example of this staff being unprepared at certain moments. The fight we demonstrated was indicitive of the iron will that those first Richt teams had.

Make no mistate the wheels started coming off, then. 30+ point defensive lapses became the norm and team discipline went out the window.

The 2007 #2 ranking is a fraud. We weren’t even the best in our SEC division, let alone #2 in the nation. We sure were playing like a #2 team by the end of the year, and I personally wanted a piece of USC. But that #2 was a complete joke. We got absolutely shellacked by a slightly better than average Tennessee team. We lost at SC, at HOME, because the staff did not put the team in a position to win.

2008 was much more indicative of what this team really started to become. Player arrests and off field trouble go up, on field play goes down.

Look at the trends. Good business management will always balance perception with good, established metrics. Perception and metrics here should warrant that 5 years is plenty enough to determine a ‘trend’

Fact: If the program were being managed correctly, recruiting would have covered the holes that would prevent a complete collapse, like we are seeing now. We are not in a “down” year anymore. We are in a trend “slope”, and at some point it has to bottom.

The question really is this: What has Mark Richt done recently that displays his ability to mitigate slumping metrics and get the program to perform at an acceptable, sustained level?

Don’t be a “what have you done lately” just for the sake of change, like alot of people want to be, but honestly and intelligently assess the things we are privy to – the metrics. What I refer to is using an approriate sampling of metrics to determine trend performance, then correct procedures until a trend is established that is acceptable.

CMR and staff designed a total game plan around AJ Green and when he could not play they did not go back and design a different game plan that included the entire team. Not sure if they knew what to do or just thought they would sit back and wait for AJ to save them. That is not the way to play a team sport.

Coachdawg 2000 -

I like the sentiment and I would never NOT support my team. I want Coach Richt and the boys to succeed just as much as any Bulldog fan. And we should.

But avoiding honest assessment will not get us where we need to be. Certainly playing the “blame game” is not always appropriate – I do agree with that.

But there is one person who is paid to be accountable for the program and that is the Head Coach. And he should be held accountable. If he doesn’t have the players that wins the majority of those battles on the field (and off) then he is responsible for finding them and bringing them in. If the X’s and O’s are off, then he is responsible for learning from the mistakes, and making surehis coordinators do as well, and not making them again. He is responsible for staying ahead of the curve and making sure that the program is always flush with ripe talent ready to step in and GATA!

Saying he is not is blind optimism in hoping we will “luck” our way to 10 wins a year and a championship every now and then. That won’t work.

It’s his job to find what works and stick to it, or change it if he sees it’s not working anymore.

Is it just possible the program slid into a hole that Richt couldn’t have avioded?? Maybe, but highly unlikely.

I remember hearing in ‘06 and ‘07 when Searles came aboard where we had missed on recruiting enough good OLinemen. We had some that were’nt eligible, some got hurt and couldn’t play, and some got kicked off the team, so we were thin. Fine. Sometimes recruiting cycles might do that to you. Fast Forward – those brought in to fill the holes are playing today with alot of experience, and they are flat-out an inconsistent liability.

We have to have accountability or, even if Richt could return us to the top, which I seriously doubt, we’ll repeat the same cycle again. And I’m not for that.

I’d rather look at the defficiencies we have from top to bottom, no matter WHO we are looking at, and correct them now for the program’s sake. We’ve had a lot of “worst x in y years moments” for me in the last 3-4 years I care to tolerate…

I’m ready for some “best” years. And I thank and appreciate Richt for giving us a taste in his first 5 years. Change is scary but sometimes youhave to to keep moving forward.

You need to wake up and smell the coffee. Having stuck by Chan Gailey through thick and thin, you Georgia fans need to realize that every year is NOT going to end with the best possible scenario from the lowest point in the season.

At this point, it’s time to salvage WHAT YOU CAN, and accept the fact that this just WON’T be the year for you. Winning it all?? Maybe a state title (My Jackets aren’t that impressive, but my Eagles might just beat ya’ll in 2012 lol) this year, but no SEC title, period. Ya’ll have been spoiled, and rightfully so, but don’t ever forget this:

Before ya’ll’s bowl game last year, Mark Richt was 90-27 (.767%) with multiple wins over GT, BCS wins, and conference titles. If you are already on board the “www.firemarkricht.com” ship, you are solidifying yourself as what I already assume you were: The worst bandwaggon fans in the country.
