Why the rush to judgment on 2011 Dogs?

Malcolm Mitchell's dazzling score proved to be too little too late, but what a play! (Brand Sanderlin / AJC)

Malcolm Mitchell's dazzling score proved to be too little too late, but what a play! (Brand Sanderlin / AJC)

The predictable happened Saturday night.

A Georgia program that struggled through a losing season last year got pretty soundly beaten by one of the country’s winningest programs in recent years.

A Top 5 team beat a team that somehow had sneaked into the Top 20 on the basis of a great recruiting year and residual respect from past glories.

Georgia fans booed and cussed Mike Bobo for yet another night of mostly predictable playcalling.

And the nattering nabobs of negativism, as Spiro Agnew might call them, immediately jumped off the bandwagon after just one game and started with the woe-is-Mark-Richt broadsides.

You knew that was going to happen, despite the fact that Boise State was favored over the Dogs and despite the fact that Georgia’s potential road to the SEC championship remains at least theoretically open despite the loss of the Old Leather Helmet trophy to the Broncos at the Georgia Dome. (The only way losing to Boise might impact Georgia in the SEC wars is if the injuries to a couple of key players Saturday night result in extended absences.)

But that’s the way the “hot seat” media scenario works. A “Dream Team” recruiting class might turn the heat down a couple of notches, but all you have to do is open the season with a loss — even a loss that most observers thought stood a pretty good chance of happening — and the “what has happened to the Georgia program under Richt?” storyline takes front and center again.

I’m certainly not here to defend Richt or Bobo. The downward trend of Georgia against ranked opponents over the past four seasons under Richt is undeniable. And despite the occasional deviation from the norm — Brandon Boykin coming over to the offensive side for a brilliant scoring reverse — Bobo fooled almost no one with what he was doing Saturday night, especially in the first half.

And while Aaron Murray played a little better in the second half, he mostly continued the slump that began in the Liberty Bowl and frankly didn’t show the amount of progress from his freshman year that most of us expected. He’s still standing back there holding on to the ball too long on third-and-long (thanks, Bobo) and getting sacked. He also was off-target on some key throws but we’ll give him that since he also had several surely thrown passes dropped.

Also, the line play was disappointing, both offensively and defensively, with Boise having the upper hand most of the evening. And Todd Grantham never did figure out how to defend Kellen Moore’s short passing game, whether the Dogs were in man-to-man or that extremely loose zone.

Yes, I had convinced myself Georgia could, under the right circumstances, beat Boise. And that might have happened had the Dogs played fully up to their potential, not made stupid mistakes, not gotten hit with some injuries — and if Boise had played a poor game. But they didn’t. Georgia still looked like a team in search of its identity while the Broncos played like a team that knows they’re good, something the Dogs are still dreaming about.

Still, as I was trudging back to the car Saturday night with my wife and brothers, we found ourselves doing something that ran counter to the general mood of the evening: accentuating the positive.

That long touchdown pass to true freshman Malcolm Mitchell was a thing of beauty, as he turned on the afterburners, catching the perfectly thrown ball from Murray in stride. That young man is going to be a Georgia football hero before very much time has passed. We also noted what a fine performance transfer linebacker Jarvis Jones turned in. And while tailback Isaiah Crowell’s debut was nowhere near Marcus Lattimore standards, he showed flashes of what is surely to come.

So if you want to throw up your hands and declare this another “lost” season on the basis of one game that Georgia really had very little chance of winning, go right ahead.

I prefer to think about the blur that was Mitchell as he literally blew past Boise defenders. The story of the 2011 Georgia Bulldogs still has many chapters yet to be written.

When you have good athletes, you are suppose to coach them up and give them a game plan to work with. When you don’t, then what happened Sat. night is the end result. Does anybody honestly think, the offense has improved over the last 3 years? I want to believe that the coaches at UGA will turn it around but my optimism is now blended with my reality, so I am just going to watch the game of football and not get upset anymore at the outcome. Much smarter football minds than myself, have already figured out the offensive game plan UGA will use, and will stop it cold. It is not a lot better than drawing plays in the sand in some back lot as it shows no changes from the same thing that has not succeeded for the last two years. Imagine what a coach like Peterson could do with the offensive weapons UGA has.

The Power Ranger uniforms, dropping Louisville at home for Boise at the Dome, and keeping around a coaching staff that has competely lost its way, speaks volumes about our Athletic Department. They’re only concerned about the bottom line! As long as the contributions come in and the stands are filled, they aren’t going to change. This season was the perfect opportunity to make a statement with season tickets, and what happened, contributions increased. Why would Howdy Doody make a change when fans won’t make a statement with their wallets?

The problem here isn’t in being negative, it’s in seeing the situation for what it is. Had the game been lost but had UGA put in a strong effort, then you’d be right about being negative too early. This isn’t about the Dogs losing. Instead it’s about this: (1) The O-line was physically outclassed, it’s hard to believe that will change dramatically (2) the defense – other than early in the game – seemed confused and unable to cope (3) Murray held the ball too long and seemed spooked by the rush (4) the running game just wasn’t there at all (5) the team seemed so far out of physical condition that time outs were needed, in the AC of the dome, to keep them on their feet (6) stupid penalties and just general confusion about what to do abounded.

Some of these things can be tweaked. But – even looking at it with optimism – many of these things are going to be near impossible to fix at this stage (how do you recoach fundamentals that aren’t there at this point, what about physical conditioning, etc.) Part of the problem is that we were lead to believe, or maybe we just wanted to believe, that dramatic fixes had been made. Instead, it looked like the worst of last year … and, at times, even worst than last year.

The UGA offense under Richt has never both scored a lot and been a yardage leader. If not for some good college QBs, UGA would have had anemic offenses probably. Richt should be fired, as he is responsible for Bobo and himself on offense, and the team’s execution was very poor.

It’s not losing to Boise that’s causing people to finally give up on CMR – it’s the WAY we lost to Boise. An entire off-season built around preparing for that game and we came out looking like it was garbage time at G-Day. The same old ineptness and predictability on offense and same old lack of physicality and adjustment on defense that has been our downfall for 3 years now. There’s simply NOTHING about that performance that gave any sign we’re turning things around – or that CMR even cares. When is enough enough?!?! Richt should be fired and Bobo should be arrested for fraud.

If you love UGA and the Dawgs, you need to demand that Mark Richt be fired immediately. Put some graduate assistants in charge until next year.

OK, OK, it was a hard weekend.

The DAWGS will be back next week to start the drive for the SEC East and maybe a SEC title. This was just some young players getting used to the big stage. The DREAM TEAM will kick some major but this year – they are the best high school talent out of the state (GA) with the most high school football talent in the country – I know because I played in Cobb County and would have been a Dawg but I blew out my knee my softmore season.

Mark this down – the Dawgs will win the East and bring the 6th National Championship to Athens in 3 years. The most priestiegeous program in college footaball history will rise again.

Don’t throw Coach T under the bus…Besides strength and conditioning, it takes technique (something the UGA lines don’t understand) and getting under their pads.

Got whipped on both lines. Don’t tell me how much we outweighed them! Remember Kim Stephens? Not the biggest guy, but played all 4 years as a starter at guard.

That short passing game to his safety receiver ate us up all night and we never figured it out. Spurrier will make us pay.

Lack of discipline! 2 Columbus players could not keep their helmets on for an entire play. Too damn much hair under the helmet and it came off every play for both of them. It’s the thick dreads. These kids are on scholarship, having thousands of dollars spent on their education and future. Can the coach not demand that they conform with their hair. Is it CMR’s fault or a fault of society? Booby Cox would not have put up with it from pro athletes and they bought into his plan. Can we not demand the same from a group of college kids? Or are they so entitled that they will go play for another coach if demands are made?

Offensive Line, you pose a good question about discipline on the UGA team. I spent 31 years on active duty. It reminds me of the old adage that sheep will mill around aimlessly until the shepard leads them. So be it with Richt. He is not a leader or a head coach. By his own admission, he is the CEO. That, my friend is a big part of the problem. I was at the game and observed him all night on the sidelines totally emotionless. He was an energy vampire for the entire team.

Same game for 5 straight years. Not one fresh thought in the entire game. We are fighting for the bottom of the SEC with great players and very bad coaching. We’ve already waited to late to save the program. Bad season and now bad recruiting. Looks like the big games of the futrue will be can we beat Vandy and Kentucky, everyone else will be too far ahead. Richt should make official what he has already done, retire.

DO NOT hire a new coach from the ACC. Hire either a young genius like Peterson or steal a successful SEC coach by doubling his salary. We can afford it. UGA is the second most profitable program in the NCAA behind Texas, but Adams and those pansies have been cheapskates.
If you want to play, you’ve gotta pay.

Every year Richt has been HC, the team has shown up unprepared and unmotivated for at least one game–even in the best seasons. Now the unpreparedness does not pop up once a season…it shows up more often than not.

The only time I have ever seen a UGA team less inspired was the bowl game last year. If 9 months of that embarrassing performance hanging over your head doesn’t get you fired up for the first game this year I am not sure anything will.

Contrary to the propaganda coming out of the AJC hyping up UGA’s team, literally no improvements have been made since last year. The players are still not motivated for games. Our Game planning is still horrible. Our In Game adjustments are still non existent. Our coach doesn’t have the sack to tell Nike that the uniforms they expect us to wear are ugly and we will not wear them.

I hear “We are still Georgia,” all the time…and unfortunately this year it looks like we are still the new Georgia.

You said it perfectly DawginLex. UGA only scored 21 so BSU was not playing a “real team”

Our D is improved and we have enough O to score a few times. They only get 1 TD and the rest FG.

Someone please explain to me when looking at the UGA roster I see all the speed and athletic ability and yet it is rarely utilized. Other, than the first play(which was a great call by the way) I struggled to find many instances(sp) where UGA put their talent in position to be successful. Now i always lean toward watching and evaluation defensive play, so I will start with a few observations. 1) Our “Jimmies” are better than their “Joes”- when UGA steps off the bus they will be more talented than 95% of the teams they face, if not greater. This isn’t the NFL where talent is pretty much spread out evenly. We have better talent, know how that talent is being coached and motivated is a different aspect, but like HS football if you have the more talented team you should win the majority of your matchups. How can you leave all that size and speed in zone coverage most of the game. I’m not saying you have to play man to man all game, but you have to eliminate some of those “HUGE” windows we were giving Boise St. K. Moore to throw in, it was like playing “pitch and catch” in the backyard.
2) You have to put a body on a body and eliminate space, make him make the great pass. I can live with kid making a play, it’s hard to stomach giving them a play. Disrupt timing of the offensive scheme, make those young receivers have to work against press coverage, it will give that Front Seven a little more time to create pressure.
3) Look you don’t have to sack the QB to be effective, making him very uncomfortable and worried will do the trick quite often, this I know! Hey I can go on and on, but you get the idea…
4) Observe, Evaluate, Position, and Play!

It may take more than a few games to get them there, but he will. This team of talented players lacks only 2-3 more Boykin-ish playmakers that can at will take over a game. The team will rebound this week. They will improve. True freshman and transfers will gel. Give Coach a break. He has and will do a great job for Georgia.

UGA fans should not think the season is over. They are not going to have a great season but they should be respectable. THe media overhpyed Crowell, Murray, and the Granhtam revamped Defense. What has Grantham really done to make people think he will be a great DC? I thought UGA would lose this game. They are a decent team that could be slightly improved from last season. They lost AJ Green and with him, they could not score a TD against Central Florida in a bowl game. Why did people think they could hang with a team like Boise? The media said UGA would win and over-hyped them, tricking the fans that they were “back”. A “Dream Team” recruiting class is not going to pay real dividends in the first year. UGA will lost four games this year which is an improvement over last year. That is what fans should expect. They will lose the SC, Florida, and Mississippi State.

The worse coaching staff in the SEC – by far. Grantham hasn’t made an adjustment since he has been here. It should have been obvious last year, after Spurrier made his comments about him.

Also – I have to agree that Boise State knew exactly what our offense was going to do all night – it was clear with 6 sacks – I would like to see CMR take over the play calling next week – also our dbacks should have played man and not left the 8-10 yard cushion on the quick dump passes – K. Moore is that good and was able to just drop it in all night – a plus in it all was that we did not give up the big play and we were able to slow down the run -

What you need to do is stop looking through the rose colored glasses and see it for what it is, Richt lost his handle on this team years ago and not to say he is a bad coach but, he is not the coach for this team at this time NOT NOW!!!! and Bobo should never get another job coaching EVER

As a Gator fan I can clearly remember walking into the gator bowl many times only to exit shaking my head. Yes UGA has a proud history and yes it sickens me when I see a great school and the great fans of the University of Georgia turn on this man. We did this a few times at UF and it was typically the young fans the what have you done for me lately crowd. As a parent who sent two sons off to play college football, one of the biggest things my wife and I looked at was what type of man the head coach was and his assistants.You have a man in CMR he cares about your sons not just as ball players but as young men. Everything goes in cycles Coach Richt is on a down one right now but I assure you that he will correct it. And when you make these comments on line and various talk radio shows try to remember this man has a family and they hear and read these comments.

The defense was lights out until Ogletree got hurt. The defense is much better and will get even better.
The offense looked lost. As I have said Bobo is the worst offensive coordinator in the SEC. The position is too much for him.and I don’t see why CMR and McGarity doesn’t see what everybody else have been seeing for 3 years. Our offense has had a month to practice lining up getting the play from the side line getting set and running the play. FAST TEMPO. The other good schools have been doing it for a few years now. WHY CAN’T WE? And , WHY DON’T WE HAVE THAT MASTERED AFTER A MONTH. Boise State made us look like like we were in the first grade against a team in college. If I had to guess I’d say Bobo was slow in having a play ready on the side line when the offense pauses for their next play which throws their timing off and thus procedure penalties.
I really like CMR a lot and want him around but he sure needs to find someone to run his offense that can handle the job.

2. The lack of discipline and preparation was obvious.
3. The play calling was predictable.
4. We never utilized our TE’s or the short pass.
5. We never utilized our speed on the outside with toss sweeps and screen passes.
6. We did not make the proper adjustments during the game.
7. Our no huddle was slower than your typical huddle.
8. Bobo’s preparation, play calling and adjustments was embarrassing.
9. Our players with the dread locks who keep losing their helmets is also embarrassing.
10. Quit tweeting and perform on the field. Show me… dont tell me.
11. Hopefully the coaches will learn a big lesson from this game. However, they didnt learn from losing to Ok. St, Colorado or Central Fla.
12. We need Coaches who are motivating, energetic, instill discipline and preparation.

Let’s hope they get this worked out this week or it will be an embarrassingly long season for the Dawg Nation. If not, make that call early to John Gruden. He needs to be the first, second and third choice if Richt cant change his ways and start winning.
