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.

Bill, you are just trying to pull out a few positives from all the negatives tonight. Its a fact that UGA out recruits Boise State. We get the 4 & 5 star recruits and they get the 3 star recruits. How does 3 star recruits out play 5 star recruits ? Its called being coached. The game started with 3 penalties on the first drive. That is unacceptable. I watched a HIGH SCHOOL game two weeks ago that didn’t have a penalty by EITHER team until the 2nd quarter. That’s lack of discipline.

Take those rose colored glasses off. UGA fans paid hard earned money to watch that sorry game. Richt makes $3 million dollars per year to coach at UGA. Why can’t he COACH THE 5 STAR RECRUITS TO VICTORIES ?

Well, I wish I had your optimism, BK. But I don’t. yeah, there were a few bright spots but they were over shadowed by the same ineptness that befell last years team. The coaches had 8 months to fix it but failed miserably. It all falls on the coaching staff. They still cannot run the ball, can’t cover receivers, same old playcalling, got gassed by mid 2d qtr. Didn’t matter we lost several players as it wouldn’t have made a difference. No improvement at all. Time for a change as most of us are calling for, regardless the way the rest of the season goes. We all bleed red and black. Difference is some of us bleed more than others.

Bill, I’m not buying your kool-aid. I saw nothing tonight that would make me believe this cast of coaching clowns can turn this around. When you do the same thing over and over again, you’re not going to get a different result. Still running draw plays on third and long, you’ve got to be kidding me. How can you not see that we’re headed down the same road we’ve been down the last 4 seasons. Have you already forgotten the dreadful Liberty Bowl? Once again we were outcoached, out prepared (remember the first series and the whole first quarter), and out conditioned. How many times do we have to prove the same point. This should be the last season we have to endure Richt and Bobo.

Your dawg brethren are exhausted after spending 6 months awarding themselves their 31st consecutive offseason national championship.

I particularly enjoyed reflecting on all of the chest thumping over the new strength & conditioning regime during the 3rd quarter opening drive when the UGA defense was run ragged after a halftime of rest & recuperation.

Overmatched and outcoached. Get used to it.

I won’t give up on them yet, but what I saw tonight was not encouraging. Boise exposed a glaring weakness in our defense and that’s the inability to stop the short pass. Our offense lacked big play mentality tonight until late in the game when it didn’t matter. If UGA comes out and beats South Carolina next week, all is not lost, but they MUST beat USC or the wheels may fall off the season. GO DAWGS!

(pronounced / foosh le duke)

The UGA fans on this blog must be the related to all those
UGAposer-fanClowns who left the game around the 11:00 min mark.
First of all – don’t our lads deserve better ?
We critique Richt & Bobo, yet the Georgia fans are worse than either.
I was embarassed and ashamed of the fan base tonight.
You, the ones who left early,
diminished the UGA program tonight on national TV.
Then you, we, us, get on the blogs and call for a coach’s job ?
Talk about “nattering na-bobs”.

I have my own opinions of the Coaches;
but until the fans act as if they deserve better,
the fans have no right to criticize.

The Boise fans were 1st class.

LSU fans intimidate opponents !

UGA fans don’t even realize when to make noise.

We, the UGA fans, would get loud when we had the ball,
yet rarely, maybe never made it difficult for the Boise QB to hear
or to audible, change plays, or even for the line to hear snap counts.

Bama’s fans are truly more passionate.

@ Georgia we have all these neat traditions, but none are related to fans
intimidating opponents.
Perhaps, our drunks are more rude than other schools.
I encountered more rude GA. fans tonight than I’m willing to admit.
Not rude to the folks from Idaho, but to me, an obvious Ga fan.
Just pure rudeness !

Kentucky has better basketball fans than we do in football.

All in all, the Coaches do a dang fine job, compared to
the UGAposers who nonsupport this team.

What if the team just left the field with ten or so min remaining.
Forfeit.
Oh but the bloggers would be out in force talking about what
degenerates and quitters Richt is recruiting.

My last statement:
60% or more of the UGA fan-base are quitters.
Put that in your smoke and pipe it !

I do not like cliches but I enjoy malapropisms.

Phuch Le` Duch – When UGA starts PAYING me to watch the games, they can expect me to do my JOB as a fan and cheer until the bitter end. As long as I’m the one paying them for an afternoon/evening of entertainment, I’ll leave whenever I feel like I’m no longer getting my money’s worth. Had I been there this evening, that would have been some time in the 2nd quarter.

Like so many, I had high hopes that UGA would turn things around this season. I wasn’t expecting to go undefeated or play for the national championship, but I was expecting to see an improvement over last year. This game looked exactly like last year.

I could have accepted a loss to Boise St. if it was a reasonably close, well played game by UGA. This one wasn’t as close as the score and the score wasn’t all that close. This doesn’t look like a team that is a threat to win more than 6 or 7 games this year.

I will scream & yell for the Dawgs as loud as I ever have for the rest of the season but I will no long defend any member of this coaching staff.

Have been a die-hard Richt supporter for a long, long time and am still hoping he pulls it together, but Geez. Seems like the top talent/recruits in the country just keep getting b-slapped under this regime for the last 3 years. A competitive loss is no shame. But this one felt like one of those growing number of games where you have the awful feeling early on that the coaches have no answers to very obvious problems and, sure enough, don’t.

What a game. It was pretty obvious that Georgia ran into a team that was better than them on both sides of the ball. Aaron Murray played well at times but his passes were not crisp or on target mos of the game. It was like he had no one to throw to. The Defense played bad in the second half. They had no answers for Boise passing or running game.

Georgia running game was stuffed. I saw Crowell on the bench smiling towards the end of the game and it made me feel like he didnt really care about the loss of the game.

Oh seeing Hershal Walker on the sidelines brought my spirits up, but Georgia has no one that could hold a candle to Walkers Freshman year.

You are delusional if you think that Georgia can stop South Carolina next week.

That is going to be another old fashioned beat down.

You can’t be serious. You have to control the offensive line and UGA with a massive line was dominated. On defense you actually have to put pressure on the QB. Make the QB move his feet when he is not someone who will hurt you running with the bass and last but not least is to make the QB feel your presence by actually getting some physical shots at him whether a sack or not. Peanalties! Hydrate your players. They should not be getting cramps. I saw more UGA players with cramps than I saw today while watching several games being played outdoors in the heat and humidity. Even once in awhile with poor coaching you’ll see a player make a play just with their sheer athletic talent but in the end the players play like they are coached are in this case a lack of coaching. CMR not longer projects optimism that things are improving rather from what I saw UGA took another beat down from a ranked opponent. Playing USC next week is not reassuring that somehow they will correct everything they have been doing wrong for several years now. CMR had a good run of maybe seven years but those days are over and he has no idea of what to do to get back to where he started. Why would you laugh at a press conference after taking a beat down. Could anyone see Nick Saban laughing. Possibly check the post press conference after Bama lost to Utah in a bowl game a few years back.

Now we know why Samuel was moved to LB.

My impression of the UGA program is that Richt did pretty well with Jim Donnan’s players but there has been a set back since using his players only. Is this correct?

Kellen Moore hit 82% of his passes? Against an SEC defense?

How many 4 and 5 Star players are on the Boise team?

As I keep saying, until they change the rules, football is a game of blocking and tackling. Boise can block and tackle with any team in the country.

Bill are you somehow related to Richt? You always come to his defense helping keep the status quo intact. We need a new coach and until folks like you (media) and the monied alumni understand that we are currently losing not on the basis of talent but because of our coaching…we continue to lose games that we should be winning. Boise is a quality team but anyone with eyesight would not mistake them for the same athletic ability as UGA. So if we have the better athletes (almost across the board) then why do we continue losing to Boise, Colorado, Kentucky, etc.? The answer lies in one location and it is past time for you to recognize that fact. We could very well defeat USC next week but that still will not replace the games that we left on the table that another staff would have won. We need a new staff regardless of what happens now that the schedule becomes loaded with easier pickings.

The truth is, is that uga just ran into a very hot team that is very well coached that didn’t make any major mistakes.

If you look at the 19 or 20 teams ranked ahead of uga, Boise would have beaten EACH ONE, with LSU & Wisconsin being the exceptions, and had Boise played those teams the game would have been a toss-up.

Lots of FB to be played this season, and USCe is much more beatable than Boise.

The coaching was atrocious. The unis were god-awful ugly. Rich needs to go, along with most of the coaching staff. They’ve had 8 MONTHS to focus on this game, and THAT was what they came up with???

Bill I am glad you are seeing the positive. I prefer the real world. Boise State could play with any SEC team and win. That said , poor coaching contines to plague the Dogs. Everyone knew coming in our O-line is suspect. What to do. Outstanding linemen can be good pass or good rush blockers. Average linemen cannot master both.Bobo should have tried to keep it simple and establish a clockburning running game. Do it in the 1st quarter when everyone is fresh. Keep QB Moore off the field Make the D have to line up 8 on the line and then burn them with a pass. Vince Dooley did it that way. We now see the holes in the 3-4 D. We were told that blitzes would come from everywhere keeping the O confused and causing hurries and/or sacks. That can only work if the D backfield does not blow coverages time after time. That stops blitzes, thus it reverts to a react D like we had under Martinez. Finally There is still a lack of discipline as shown by costly penalties, loss of concentration in catching a wide open pass, a failure to rush the punter who was able to rugby kick balls inside the 20 like a golfer hitting the green from 150 yards everytime. I just do not see improvement where improvement should have happened and knowing UGA was going to lose does not account for the awful play. I hope I am wrong.

Bill, Reading your article is a great synopsis of the problems we have all watched during our most obvious decline. You attempt to put a positive spin on a game that had no positive if you were a Georgia fan. I wrote a long eloquent post with my opinions, then I erased it and this is what I want to say. We are still out of shape, getting injured nearly every series, undisciplined, our players look lost on the field, we CANNOT TACKLE (my 4th grade son saw that with clarity!!!), and our coaches don’t seem to be able to adjust when a team finds success against us. In other words, the same thing we saw last year.

I LOVE UGA but I am tired of the same thing over and over. I thing most UGA fans feel the same way.

It’s not just that we continue losing, it’s that we keep looking so pathetic while doing. False start on the 1st play, incompetent time-management, hang-dog looks on the players faces whenever they face adversity-it was all there last night. The plane has run into the mountain. A change at the Head Coaching position must be made, and if you don’t recognize that, then you are not a real Dawg fan.

Bill, you are not qualified to write football articles. Never thought so before, but this one definitely confirms it. ‘Rush to judgment?’ Really? This ineptitude has been going on for several years now. Time to cut bait and fish. Richt is clueless about how to put together the framework for an effective coaching staff and team, and it’s time to call Chris Petersen, Dan Mullen, or Gus Malzahn. The Georgia fan base deserves much better, but more importantly these kids on the field do. They need a new leader, and since you obviously can’t see that, you should go back to writing about wicker chairs or bugs in the garden.

Sorry Bill, but the disenchantment has been building for a lot longer than one game, it goes back a few seasons and doesn’t look to be changing. What we have here is a failure of the coaching staff to consistently exploit an opponents weaknesses. If the OL isn’t blocking well in the interior or pass-protection, you’ve gotta think short screens and toss sweeps to get our speedier players in space. Oddly, when Bobo strikes gold on a play he abandons that vein and goes back to what’s not working…it’s really bizarre and counterintuitive. It’s hard to keep hope alive when you see great talent like that wasted by poor coaching, the lack of adjustments in-game. It appears that Bobo settles on a gameplan (which looks eerily similar game-to-game regardless of the opponent) and he stubbornly doesn’t diverge from it. I think we need to to diverge from our current coaching stuff come season’s end…

Kellen Moore is a surgeon at quarterback. Keeping Moore off the field was paramount. Moore threw short precise passes that turned into big gainers. Georgia’s offense was inept. Not only in Its execution but more to the point, in Its game plan. Ask yourself, in the early going, why would you run a hurry up offense. Why would you not be more methodical about trying to move the ball? Why not run off tackle instead of into the teeth of this defense?

Again, fans will get crucified to reacting to “one game”. This isn’t a reaction to one game and it is not a reaction to losing to a good football team. It is the reaction to a Georgia team that was not competitive for half the game. It is a reaction to having 8 months to prepare and still looking unprepared. It is a reaction to the good idea of going for it on 4th and 1 and then executing the most simple play, that even elementary schools run, like complete morons.

Why put Orson Charles in motion and have your backs 5 yard deep? Why not line up and put man on man and block? This was a scheme developed and coached by BOBO. Let’s send the tight end in motion for effect. Hand the ball off four yards deep. Whatever happened to simple, short yardage, hand the ball to your 272 lb. fullback and get THREE LOUSY FEET.

Richt says the good thing is the SEC schedule hasn’t started yet and everyone is 0 – 0 in the SEC. The bad thing is SEC play hasn’t started yet and Georgia is sure to see a better defense in South Carolina. They are sure to see a much better running back in Lattimore. They are sure to see a much better receiver in Alshon Jefferies.

This cannot be like last season. If Georgia starts 0 – 2 or 1 – 3 or has two losses in the SEC, then Georgia would need to develop depth by playing as many freshmen as possible.

For five seasons Richt has failed to build quality depth on the lines of scrimmage and Bobo has been an abject failure as a coordinator. If we want to give Richt more time based on his overall record, then we have to look at Bobo’s overall performance as a coordinator.

This isn’t a knee-jerk reaction to one game. This is a reaction to a program that has brought in tons of talent and doesn’t quite seem to know what do with it once it arrives in Athens.

Accentuate the positives all you want Big Bill.. truth is without the bloop blown coverage on the Mitchell pass and the once in a lifetime trick play with Boykin, UGA scores 7 points. You know very well Boise could have put up 50 if they had wanted. They ran the ball the whole fouth quarter. Losing by 14 against a “top 5″ opponent may not be embarassing, but considering how easily it could have been 48-7 and that “top 5″ opponent is smaller and slower than the entire UGA team on average…that is embarrasing. See what excuses you can come up with next week when the ole ball coach puts 50 on you…and you know he will if given the chance.

I gtuess the question we UGA fans have to ask now is where do we go from here. If this is truely how we will run the offense this year, I think we are probably wasting a lot of talent with our play calling. A couple of the youngsters on offense did look good last night but need a OC that is innovative enough to come up with an offensive game plan that can utilize their talent. I had hoped that CMR would get involved in the offense and become a field general but last night he showed me, that he is satisfied staying with Bobo. I have a lot of respect for CMR as a man, but I am afraid, his loyalty to his coaches will cost him his job.
I would also say our defense disapointed me as well last night. Considering the size of our defense and speed, we did little to pressure their QB and he picked us apart. I am still not sure why we didn’t at least try to stop these little dink throws that consisted of 5 yards at best, but UGA allowed them to go for 10-15 yards and the coaches couldn’t figure out how to stop that.
UGA just has too many good athletes to be coached like they are right now. S.C. showed a lot of vulnerabilities in their game last night but the big thing is they got the “W”. I would bet their areas of concern will be addressed and they will probably not make the same mistakes as often in those areas. Can we change the offensive game calling in one game so that we have a chance to be competitive? I sure hope so, because even though this loss last night was a OCC and doesn’t have any effect on the SEC conference games, it clearly showed what we can expect unless we get some innovation in our play calling. I truly like CMR as a man, and he has been an ambassador for the UGA but I am afraid his loyalty to his OC, will cost him his job. Defensive coaches can prepare too easily with our OC making up the game plan, because you can pull out film from last year and see the same, non-successful plays and feel confident, he will do the same thing in their game against him. I have tried to figure out his offensive philosophy but when you keep calling for the same, run off tackle and it is successful once in 10 times, you need to change things around. You are going to get the one legitimate RB UGA has hurt, running that same old play, and as was seen last night, the UGA offensive line, is too thin to play, smash mouth football the whole game. If CMR$ has indeed studied up on new techniques in football this off season, he needs to incorporate them into this game plan. I had hoped he would be a lot more involved in the game on the field, but I guess I was mistaken in that thought. I somehow hope that this game last night taught us something about our team and what we need to do, so we can put a beat down on S.C. Right now, I do not know if we can coach the athletes we have into a team that makes opponents fear them, and prepare for more than 2 hours to defense our offensive game plan. Unless, there is some change in the offensive game plan, our defense will once again, spend way to much time on the field against S.C. and we will make Garcia look like a decent QB.

to add…….

why didnt we rush the punter? if they are going to run a few steps that would give us time to block it.
why did we not give the ball to Figgins in the I formation when we needed ONE yard ?
for that matter did we give him the ball at all ??

why didnt we use a huddle and burn clock to keep Moore OFF the field? Our no huddle vs theirs was pathetic. We get set, then stand back up and look confused for a few seconds, while Boise goes to the line and snaps the ball.

Both teams and Coaching staffs had 8 months to prepare and look at the results. Boise outcoached and outplayed us period.
my thought is that we are a very simple team to prepare for. other than the Boykin run we are so predictable anyone can game plan for us.

McGarity has given Richt every possible opportunity to improve, and CMR has failed. This will be his last year without a doubt.

And they must have hired Richard Simmons to take over conditioning and uniforms. A total embarrassment. Thank goodness this is the last year of having to watch this and hear all the same old excuses.

The reason there is a rush to judge is that ugaly had not looked that unprepared to play a game since their last game!! Eight months to get ready for the most important start to a season in his tenure, & that is what richt produced. But, as usual, the media & the fans fell for all the hype: the dream team, the new attitude about strenght & conditioning, blah, blah, blah!!! Overpaid coaches, overhyped players, a predictable, boring offense, an overmatched defense & another embarrassing loss! This is what ugaly football is all about now.

The ship started to slowly sink in 2008. In is now going down more rapidly with each passing game. Just look at who ugaly has lost to since 2009: Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Arkansas, South Carolina, Miss St, COLORADO!! & CENTRAL FLORIDA!!! This program is a bottom tiered SEC program with the likes of vandy, kentucky & ole miss.

However, because of idiots like you, who keep thinking its all going to be swell, the program will continue to sink into further depths.

Not taking anything away from Boise State they came to play they were prepared and it showed, but we can’t continue to waste the talent that we have or else we won’t be able to recruit top talent. There is no way they should have won by more 3…………..in my humble opinon Georgia should have won that game hands down……………we are in desperate need of a coaching regime change

I’m just curious. This question has probably already been asked and answered. If so, I missed it. What is the Dawgs record in what I will kindly, diplomatically call the “non-traditional uniforms” (i.e. those hideous ones at the GA/FL game 2 years ago, the “black-out” unis, the ones from last night, and any other monstrosities that I have overlooked)? Isn’t it time to cut the gimmicks and get back to the basics of who we are?

I’d like to make a comparison here. Let’s compare the state of GA, and its neighbor to the West, Alabama. Both universities are the flag ship schools in their respective states. It is a fact that GA has more HS takent than Alabama, both schools have about the same facilities, fan bases, money etc….. so why can UGA not even win a game anymore??? It makes no sense. A football team from the Univ. of GA should blast Boise State, especially in the GA Dome. UNACEPTABLE. You think Nick Saban would put up with this crap??!!

The University of Georgia and specifically Coach Mark Richt and it’s coaches and players are to be commended for the effort in last night’s contest. First that Georgia accepted the challenge is admirable. Over the years we Bronco fans have have dispaired of getting such top flight competition. While we take pride in our Broncos the game was far from a blow-out. Georgia has much to be enthusiatic about and last night showed what is sure to become a solid “team” and a strong SEC performer. We wish you the absolute best in the upcoming campaign and thank you again for the challenge..

Both lines of scrimmage were dominated and it was obvious. I saw #68 Burnett get barrelled over several times by the BS D lineman. This kid may be “smart”, but he’s not a SEC calibur O lineman. Justin Anderson jumping off sides on the first series?? are you kidding me???? I was planning on going to the game this wekeend vs. SC, but will instead watch it at home. What’s the point. I don’t want to hear a lecture that I am not a “true” GA fan since I have cancelled my plans to attend the game.

Why the rush judgement? Because they are making the same mistakes as they did last year. I argued for Mark Richt all summer. I am sorry I did. How could they have watched film of BSU all summer and play the exact same gameplan they always play against any other team? Why didn’t they man up on receivers and pressure Moore every play? Why didn’t they go after a punt when there were gaping holes that our guys just stood around in? What is with the repeated long balls on first down when it didn’t work all night? Why no two tight end sets when we have four tight ends who could start anywhere in the country? Why in the third quarter when running the I and getting something going did they suddenly revert to what hadn’t worked the whole game? Why all the injuries for a team that supposedly was in peak condition?

It just seems to be the same thing every season. I had a feeling UGA was going down when Richt started talking about how this game really wasn’t important to their goal. I forgive the early hiccups, nerves, young players. But, the coaches know they have young players. Why not come up with some schemes to best utilize them. UGA was flat outcoached, outdisciplined, and outmanned. My God, they weren’t even blitzing. They were sending four guys, and our O line couldn’t hold them back or create holes. Boise is good, mature, disciplined…. but not as good as they beat UGA. Bama or LSU would whip the snot out of ‘em.

Congrats on another first, CMR…. the first SEC team to be beaten by Boise.

One thing they all have in common is to have very good assistant coaches. I am sad to say it is evident to me that CMR has forgotten how to coach. I like the man but just as you and me if we dont do our jobs we are released. I have been a Dawgs fan for close to 60 years. I have seen us have our ups and downs but never like now. It is a very sad time for anyone who loves the Dawgs.

No reason to believe Ga would win this game, Boise was ranked in top 5 and Ga was ranked somewhere in the twenties, Boise has 25 seniors returning from a very good team last year, But I was disapointed that the Dogs seemed to perform much as they did last year, They appeared to be out of wind by the second peroid, Confused on assigments on both sides of the ball, Boise receivers were wide open much of the time and late in game the Dogs returned to last years habit of poor tackling, Although I will give them credit or some of them that they did not quit, Adding a couple of scores late after the game had been decided, The game was not as close as the score indicated. All in all I thought Ga was poorly coached, Did not use thier speed and Bobo continues to be predictable. If the Dogs lose next week, Which they may well do it will be a long year.

I see what you’re saying, Bill. There were a few positives that I also took from this game, most of which you mentioned already.

I think what a lot of folks are forgetting is that Georgia lost to a team that will surely go undefeated this year and possibly be in the mix for the national championship at the end of the day. Boise State is a team deserving of that Top-5 ranking and is led by the best player in college football. And he chose to show up last night, pure and simple.

Sure, the loss hurts, but this season is far from over. Just win next week and it can still be a decent year.

Otherwise, lousy play-calling – again, poor line play – again, our “physicaled” – again = mediocre season – again.

If some of you all complaining really have been paying attention the last few years, you would realize this was a quality team and were ranked #5 for a reason. Kellen Moore is a Heisman candidate and it was stated that have about 18 fifth year seniors so they are a very mature, experienced team. I think Murray is a pretty good quarterback, Crowell appears to be a dynamic back but he just has to get better with the blocking aspect.The defense looks like it can be very dominating against alot of teams but not against that offense. That will be the best overall offense they probably face all season. Boise State has been a better team than Georgia the last several seasons. It was wishful thinking by many diehards fans to think that they would beat this team. C’mon Son!

It’s obvious that none of you have ever played a single snap of organized football. The players have the responsibility to make plays PERIOD. The only problem I had with the coaching was they stuck with that stupid spread / up tempo offense all game instead of going back to pro style like they did on occasion in the 2nd half.

All you can hate on CMR all you want but answer this question – would you rather start the season knowing where you have to be or think you’re already there and be proven wrong when it counts? Boise State or Florida Atlantic take your pick.

Now that the coaching talent has reached a peak in the SEC, the CEO is proven to be an imposter as a HC again and again. The CEO is at the bottom of a Mt. Everest sized mountain when it comes to coaching talent in the SEC or the WAC for that matter.

I wonder how all those CEO fans feel after whining that the CEO is a better coach then Chris Petersen. Apparently the CEO is a much worse coach then the Boise State head man.

Bobo was not responsible for giving up 35 points. He also cannot create long, sustained drives that keeps our D off the field and tires out the other team’s D. 4 and out, 4 and out, a quick score, 4 and out means their D is on the field for 13 plays while our D is on the field for 30-50 plays.

The fans leaving early was not a lack of support for the team, but more of an indication of our lack of support for an inept coaching staff. I respect Richt’s values as a person, but his loyalty to individual coaches over the University and fans has become his demise. His and the staff’s approach has proven to be lacking. Time for a change. Bobo’s play calling was so predictable even my wife knew what was coming before each play. It doesn’t seem the coaches have the passion or intelllegence to coach up such fine players or the passion to win with discipline and athletic skills. They are just unable to bring out the best in players, so with this it is time to move past the Richt era, take our lumps, and bring in a coaching staff with the passion for UGA and winning at the top level. LSU and Bama have done it. Wasn’t easy, but if you want to see the fans and players excited and motivated, it has to start with the coaching staff.

Why not let BSU deal with that factor until the fans could get settled in? The first series-two false starts and a delay of game due to the noise. Second series-two key players fall down on the plastic grass resulting in another 3 and out. FORGET THE CHICKEN MONEY AND LEAVE THE HOME GAMES IN ATHENS WHERE THEY BELONG!

Good morning Bill. I took great exception to your comments. I agree with some points but not overall gist of thing. Sports is a mentality just about as much as anything else. Physical talent is overrated. Lesser talented sports teams triumph over more talented ones every day. A proper motivator is invaluable in sports. Did the Bulldogs appear motivated to you? No Mark Wretch group has been motivated (ready to compete) since the blowout of a vastly overrated Hawaii team years (seems centuries) ago. The Bulldog Nation should not be subjected to these continued indignities. The heartless bowl loss was just one tiny symptom of this malignancy! The Bulldogs just are not playing with an fire in their bellies! Other teams are pumped with emotion. The Bulldogs stumble around like zombies. Some of this apathy falls on the players but the majority falls on coaches. The head coach must shoulder the responsibility. The head coach is accountable for his assistants! The Bulldogs have a pitiful offense. The Bulldogs have a horrible defense. The Buklldog kicking game is not all it is cracked up to be. Do you see reason for optimism? The Bulldogs lost be two TDs at home after Boise State had compassion by easing up in the latter stages of the secomd half. A once proud national football power is now a liability to the proud Southeastern Conference. This is not based on one defeat. This legacy of failure has been building up for many seasons. Either Wretch is no longer capable of coaching at an SEC level or he simply has more other important priorities. I fearec that allowing Richt to remain would be fatal for Bulldog Nation again in 2011. See nothing that makes me doubt that assessment. Sorry be being so long winded. BTW – Lou Holtz DOES have dimentia! :)

Richt should stay if for no other reason that he assembled the Dream Team, and can be the ‘face’ of the program. BUT only if he hires new OC and DC who know how to coach in the off season and on game day. Is there any more glaring example of how out-coached the Dogs were than last night? BSU players new EXACTLY what to do and DID IT every play. UGA had more raw talent and athletic ability, but that ain’t enough – maybe in high school, but not at this level. We had NO answer to adjust to what Moore was doing, and made NO offensive adjustments like getting Crowell to the edge and let him do his thing, or going to Mitchell earlier and often. Would love to see what this team could do with the right coaching.

Didn’t you see how disorganized we were? All the penalties for procedure and formation? That speaks to coaching.

The UGA players always loaf up to the line on offense, and then run with sloppy technique. You never see them run quickly to the line and run crisp routes. That speaks to coaching.

The UGA defense celebrates after tackling the opposing RB after a 3 yard gain. Embarassing.

Our no-huddle took just as long as the huddle. Several delay-of-game penalties. Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of no-huddle? Where’s the zip, the rhythm? This looked like the first scrimmage of spring practice. Coaching.

This loss can be overcome, if we win the SEC. But winning even 1 or 2 SEC games is going to be very tough if we play like this. This looked like a Jim Donnan team.

How anyone can find positives in this trainwreck is beyond me. After the UCF game in which we were embarassed, Richt promised never again. He cited all the things he was going to change.

They looked like the same team as played in the Liberty Bowl. They were predictable in play calling, out of shape, uninspired, led by a QB, who was given the job and did not earn it. Murray continues to disappoint. If Grantham’s defense is the answer then what is the question. Neither he, Bobo, or Murray seem to have a clue.

LINES, offense and defense wins games. We do not seem to put much emphasis on either, we recruit skill position guys, who never have a chance because their is no blocking and on defense, no pass rush. Rushing three or four on third down doesn’t get it done. Just an absolute trainwreck.

Boise State…5 of 6 inside the red zone (5 td’s). Georgia…0 for 0 inside the red zone. Georgia never got the ball inside the red zone. Defense played well for the first three series and then….

I keep hearing the same blather…Georgia’s young, inexperienced, blah, blah, blah. Everyone has depth issues. Everyone had the same amount of time to get ready for the season. Everyone loses players to attrition and graduation. 4th and 1…some things are inexcusable.

It’s not a rush to judgement Bill. It’s 14-13 in the last two season and one game. It’s about poor tackling. Penalties. Pointing fingers at each other in the secondary. It’s about a less talented team that was clearly better prepared and motivated, i.e. superior coaching.

BSU showed that star levels on recruits only matter on picture day. Game day is all about football. BSU players know how to play the game.

Bill, it’s not the fact that they lost, it’s HOW they lost. The Dawgs were an ill-prepared team, lacking focus and discipline. They were whipped at the line of scrimmage by a smaller, supposedly less athletic, opponent. All of these faults were especially glaring in the face of a well-coached, disciplined team like Boise State. I truly admire Mark Richt, the man. I have grown to think much less of Mark Richt, the coach. Phone home, Kirby Smart.

A great coach is good for three to four wins per season while a bad one is good for that many defeats! Chalk up one so far. :)

Bill, my initial reaction was to think of what derogatory name to call you, but after reading the article, I am not only impressed with your candor of Mike Bobo and Mark Richt’s strategy, but also your rationale. GREAT article. Also one that has PROVEN the obvious, that Mike Bobo belongs in high school coaching, not college. His problem stems from an uncanny inability to navigate the playbook and call plays with a sense of urgency FULL TIME, not just when Georgia is trailing. That paired with another uncanny inability to call plays when under pressure due to the opponent’s defensive adjustments. He seems to have blinders on by calling the scripted plays regardless. Even the ESPN announcers have spoken of this repeatedly. Yes, the Georgia offense has been highly productive under Bobo in 2010, but seems to fall apart when matched against top defensive coordinators. Monte Kiffin is still laughing about 2009’s game in Knoxville (by the way, that is a fact…he laughed at Bobo’s offense per a very high up Tennessee official who is also a family friend). I happen to believe this is the beginning of the end for Mark Richt. Why? South Carolina and Mississippi State are stronger teams and will likely both win in Athens (although I hope I am wrong). The Athletic Association along with the patronizing, sloppy UGA-sponsored “Disney” media (Chuck Dowdle, Neil Williamson, etc.) will have the UGA spin zone going full speed after likely routs of Coastal Carolina, Tennessee and a close win over Vanderbilt. All is not well, folks. Not even close.

You gloom and doomers kill me. This game was a loss from day one when Mark scheduled it. He knew Boise would come in here and win. This was baptism by fire for this team. He’s going to use this loss to motivate the team for the rest of the year. Better preparation to find out where your team stands and galvanize them with a strong opponent. And we don’t suck. We played a better team…and our guys will get there. SC opened against ECU and couldn’t get it going until the second half. Mark needed to know what players were going to bring it in the big game…he found out yesterday. Next weeks starting lineup will feature Malcolm Mitchell replacing Tavarres “Land-O-Lakes” King. Marlon Brown is legit. Justin Anderson is nothing more than a body to fill space…poorly. Watts Dantzler will hold down that spot for the rest of the year. Ben Jones is going to fire up that offensive line. He did look good. The D needs to save that fire they had when we opened for the later quarters. Wasting energy on pure emotion…not a good game plan.

Congratulations to Boise State. What a pleasure to watch a well coached team and players that play football the way it is meant to be played.

This game proves that recruiting is indeed overated. When you X and O like coach Pete did, the Jimmy’s and the Joe’s don’t matter quite as much. Our coaching staff was embarassed by Boise State’s staff in every phase of the game.

Bill, you aren’t being realistic. This season is OVER. It isn’t about the one loss. It is about the quality of the play (or lack thereof). These things won’t be fixed this year. The new coaching staff will need some time to rebuild this broken program… 2013 is what we should be shooting for.

Same old team and same old coaching techniques equal another failed attempt to win. The bottom line is that the head coach has got to go. Georgia has a boat load of talent and not being used right. The head coach showed no emotion or fire in his belly. Georgia is not getting their money’s worth. As much as this pains me I guess I need to pick another team to pull for, and I guess I need to get ready to say “ROLL TIDE”, at least they know how to win and the coaching staff runs circles around Georgia. I feel sorry for the kids and feel in my heart another losing season is about to start.

Blue and Orange 51: Congrats on a great win. Unfortunately for Boise… Georgia will not make this great win look good for you. There will be no victory in Athens against South Carolina. Georgia will get crushed at least as badly. Georgia will beat Coastal Carolina and New Mexico State. We will probably manage wins over Vandebilt and Ole Miss. I’m not sure where 5th or a 6th win will come from this season.

Boise deserves a better deal for the way they played, but at the end of the year… Boise won’t get much credit for beating Georgia as Georgia may not have a decent win this year on top of the same situation last year. It won’t look as good as it should…. Boise deserves better

The Program has been steadily declining and heading in the wrong direction.

“5 Star” Recruiting means NOTHING when combined with lack of proper coaching, motivation, discipline and lack of vision for the program.

I’ve supported CMR but no more. Last night’s game was the last straw. No change in OC, or DC or bringing in new Strength coaches will do ANY good. It starts from the top with CMR.

UGA has to “clean house” and send everyone packing at the end of the season.

A change in new direction is needed, it starts from top to bottom.

I will continue to support the team, these kids deserve better…hope they get it after Richt and Son (aka BOBO) are gone!

IF UGA wants to keep Richt till Hell freezes over, fine, but, if UGA fans want a football program that can compete with the best, then you had better get rid of Richt and his incompetent staff. That is the only solution to the problem. It is abundently clear to any one who can count to 100 that the Richt era is over. O-V-E-R! With Richt at the helm, UGA wsill never win another eastern division much less SEC crown. So the problem and its solution are simple: Keep Richt, Bobo et al and continue on down the path to mediocrity or fire the whole lot, find a competent head coach who can compete and hire him. He is out there, he just has to be found. McGarity has to make the effort to look.

Well here we go again with all the so called UGA fans that all they want to do is fire Coach Richt…we faced a very good team that has won over 60 games the last 5 years, but ya’ll say they have not played anybody..I agree the schedule is not as tough as some other teams but they have beat some quality teams.
Our playing calling is not very good, BLO-BLO is so predictable…he is not a D1 OC, a good QB coach maybe, but not a OC. You change the play calling, run plays the defense will allow you to run, DO NOT DO WHAT THEY ARE WAITING FOR, CHANGE. Thats the difference between a good OC & our OC. If BloBo would stop running the same plays after we have seen they are not working & change up on the play calling then things might be a little different.
We did have some sparks of promise on both sides of the ball, but when you lose a starting LB & starting OG it hurts big time.
I will want to see how Coach Richt handles the poor play calling, I do not expect a change over night but I know he will not let the ship sink due to BloBlo/BloBo
I always look at the glass being half full, not half empty like the majority of you on these sites…so there is some promise for this team..now if we are 1-4 preparing to play UT than I might change some of my comments…
I do know the program & CFB very, very well…so I am not giving up on CMR..

So all of you so called experts start supporting the coach & players, let these young men know you are behind them, they sense it, they will play great or play like you would if were out there.
And make some noise it used to be a very tough place to play when I was involved on the sidelines..so PLEASE BE POSITIVE, if you can……

All of you fairweather fans suck worse than any decision I saw out there (except starting T. King). There was heart in this team, and that’s something I haven’t seen in a while. They kept it a game right to the end, which is more than I expected after they went up by 21. You should do like the rest of the Country and jump on the Alabama, LSU, Auburn, South Carolina band wagons…it suits the way you talk about the program. Don’t jump back on the band wagon when we beat SC next week (who had MAJOR questions in their first half bfore their depth got the better of ECU).

I don’t want to hear any complaints about the UGA crowd and fans. UGA fans showed up in force and were loud. The atmosphere at the game was great. I earlier watched the Auburn fans leaving their game in droves when the went down by 10 points with 3:20 left to play and they are the defending SEC and National Champs. My only question for our coaching staff is why we don’t go back to using the straight I formation more, run the ball and play action pass. We are always more successful with that. Our guys can’t seem to get pass protection down when in the shot gun. With the O-Line that we have, we should line up in the I formation, run behind the fullback and jam it down opponents throats. That’s what we do best. Sorry, it’s not as exciting as the spread and option and all that jazz; but it works for us. Watched LSU do the same thing to Oregon last night and Oregon is supposed to be great, too. BSU’s line was smaller than ours, they should not have been able to line up and whip us like they did. This shot gun business, where the linemen have to hesitate at the snap- to fake a run block- gives the defensive linemen time to read the play and does not work for us. Have those big guys fire off the ball from the start, double team the DT’s or NT (depending on the front) and slam them back into the LB’s. Run the ball between the tackles, then branch off into play action. THAT WORKS FOR US!!!!

I left half way thru the 4th qtr and have NO problem with it. You must be blind, delusional or an idiot to not see that UGA was out classed and majorly out coached. Richt could not hold BSU coaches clipboard. Not one player on the other side of the field was a blue chip major recruit – not even the QB. If UGA loses to SC next week our dawgs will suffer the first back to back losing season in 40+ years. In all honesty – UGA is just not that good. O line can not block. D line can not get pressure. WR get no seperation. The next great RB runs on his tip toes. My 8 year old daughter could hit the hole quicker and with more force. Someone please call Gruden now so we can move in the right direction.

No bud you want to call someone out all year because they dont agree with your view or make objective views about what is shown on the field.

maybe now you’ll learn a lesson in life and that is Dont listen to crap press conferences from coaches who are positive about everything or what supposedly is happening on the practice field

its all about the gametime

You need to learn to be objective and not like a typical fan who thinks his coaches and team do no wrong

For years its been the same ol crap plays with no adjustments.

Loganville D,

I have to take issue with one statement. Bobo did change it up in the third Q when they wnet to the I. Things started working, so he changed back to what wasn’t. I was completely baffled.

I have always been critical of the running plays. They take to long to develop. Figgins, Mitchell, Brown, Crowell, Murray, and the tight ends. That’s what we got on O. How do we use them? Given that the O line doesn’t seem to have the ability to block. Just create a hole and run at it quickly before it closes. They have to figure out a way to keep the D off the field.

P.S. I absolutely hate all this hurry up offense all the time in college football today. I’ll give the O-Coordinators a lot of credit for grabbing on to it though. It totally negates the defense from being able to defend a play. The offense can change the play at the last second and prevent any substitutions by the defense. I was both disturbed and amused watching Coach TD trying to sub guys in last night while BSU is lining up to run a play. Those poor players were coming on the field totally confused about where to line up and the ball was being snapped while they were still walking around (happened a bunch in the 3rd and 4th quarter). I know there has got to be some smart DC’s out there that can figure out the best way to defend it, but I don’t think I’ve seen one yet. Look what Auburn did to Alabama last year. And coaches at Alabama are no dummies.

One of the things football games do is separate hype from reality. Prior to the big games many football analysts, such as Lou Holtz of ESPN, pointed out the Georgia’s defensive line out weighed the Tater Tots by 50 pounds per man and that surely that massive defensive line would thrash and humiliate the Potato Peelers. Some even said that UGA had the best defense in the country. A smothering defense that no one could score on or even more the ball. The real experts pointed out that Potato State just couldn’t cope with the speed, size, depth, etc. of the mighty SEC. So what happened? The best defense in the country doesn’t give up 35 points to anyone. The experts failed to take into account that the Spuds have a coach.

We had guys on defense tapping their helmets asking to leave the game – on the OPENING SERIES of the 3rd quarter. That implicates not just conditioning, but courage and heart. We haven’t had much of either since 2005 in my opinion. At some point that has to fall on the head coach.

Why anyone would be optimistic going forward is baffling to me. Since ‘09 we’ve had the wimpiest team. Boise State won because they are better coached and had more men then we had.

I guess our team could grow larger cajones during the course of the season – it happened in ‘07. But I’m not holding my breath. Richt seems lost.

It doesn’t scare the opposing team anymore, it is sad when my son & his friends try to get our fans to stand up & make some noise. All they want to do is complain about Coach Richt & what we just ran or didn’t run.
It was louder in the 70’s & 80’s then it is now. I agree with you about running the ball, BLOBLO is so predictable, have BF, RS & IC in the backfield at the same time, QB under center & pound the ball to the left, then right, have Figgins & Samuel block for IC, wear the defense down…then pass the ball, 10 to 20 yard shots, not 30 to 40…his play calling is DUMB…

I was watching the TCU Baylor game the other night. Even though TCU lost in game they were expected to win, their players showed heart. Their quarterback was playing with cramps in both legs. He was getting treatment every time out, limping between every snap, playing his @ss off for his team. Contrast that with UGA players rolling on the ground in agony with every cramp. Compared to other teams, UGA is a bunch of wusses. Hell they get a little winded and tap their helmet wanting to come out of the game. The culture at UGA is weak and selfish.

Other commenters are correct. It’s the coach. Or is it? Growing up in Florida, now living in California, the South has always had top high school recruits. My two African American sons go to Boise State after graduating in California. At 50 years old, the one thing I have to come to learn is that a great leader can take average players and make them better. But I mediocre leader can ruin very talented players. Boise State has one of the best coaching, physical fitness training I’ve seen. Just look at BSU’s players compared to UGA players. UGA’s line was fat and out of shape and could not endure back to back to back Boise State, no huddle offensive plays. In contrast, BSU team, especially the off and def lines are not fat and out of shape. UGA coach should slim those guys down and make them quicker. The last comment that I would like to add is people should not minimize Boise State football. Obviously, there are probably less distractions in Boise ID (population 400,000) than the ATL or other big city colleges. Just because Boise is not in or near LA, NYC, Dallas or Miami, does not mean BSU is not capable of producing quality players. About 60% of BSU football players are recruited out of California, at state of 42 million people. So BSU does not get the big names that attend Cal, Stanford, USC or UCLA, but they recruit quality players looking for a great place to study and enjoy college life. Boise is a nice city with a selection of Haitian, Brazilian, and Jamaican restaurants, businesses and boasts 3 urban radio stations. Hey, but it still is a cowboy town, too.

We’ve waited 8 months for the new and improved UGA…but we trotted out the same old predictable offense and our defense looked as bad as it has anytime in the last 3 years. UGA is trending downward…and badly. I’m not giving up on the players…but Richt, Bobo and Grantham should definitely be feeling the heat. Guess we’ll see what McGarity is made of sooner than later.

When that type of crap happens it is incumbent on the NORMAL fans of UGA to put a stop to it. I routinely call out Gator fans that are acting like idiots when I see it.

I am not sure that a lack of inspiration or motivation is the problem, folks. The problem is that the team doesn’t seemed to be assessed for its strengths and weaknesses. Schemes are not created to utilize talent. Opposing teams are not assessed for strengths and weaknesses. Schemes are not created to take advantage of their weaknesses. That is what Mark Richt needs to be blamed for, not anything dealing with heart or swagger.

Unless you have a Cam, Vince, Tebow, Bo, or Herschell: Disciplined, fundamental football wins every time. UGA can’t win if it can not create sustained drives. I like many was disappointed in the D’s lack of stamina. Since the Stafford days, though, the D is on the field all the time. It’s either a quick strike or 3 and punt. Then the D is back on the field. There hasn’t been a sustained drive since Greene was QB. Is it a coincidence that it is also since Bobo took over as OC and play caller?

I haven’t read any comments but my view is not Bobo’s fault… I blamed this all on Aaron Murray b/c there was times when he had mitchell or crowell underneath and alot of times he was forcing to Charles… they had many chances in the 1st half when the were up 7-0 and tied 7-7 but Aaron Murray did not get it done… I think crowell should be starting and he needs the ball in space and same thing with Mitchell… Tavaras King dropped too many balls…. at first I was angry with the Oline but they killed us on the penalties especially to start the game b/c that 1st play was a playaction pass and someone was open down the middle of field…. as far as the defense i was encoraged by their play but with the offense not producing i can’t expect them to hold down the fort the whole gm and olgetree going out really hurt b/c they were awesome on 3rd down until he went out…. i think jarvis jones played outstanding and although we lost we still got to get reay for south carolina next week… if aaron murray doesn’t check down to the underneath then maybe its time to give hutson mason some snaps maybe a series or two to see what he got but i was really disappointed in muray and the offensive line…….

If MR does not make it, the interest is in Urban Myer. Does that mean that UM is interested in the GA job? No it doesn’t. He may not be interested in ever coaching again. Is GA planning to rehire if this year goes bad? Maybe not. I will say this, if GA decided to rehire UM would be the one. Great recruiter in GA & FL as well as Nationally. And, he can coach. No one can dispute that. Again, this is just one of the rumors floating around from a fair source. But, this source has been wrong and right before and gets on things pretty early.

Flat tire,

I agree with you. Insanity = trying the same thing again and again and expecting different results. What kills me is that when they change it up and get something going, they default back to what wasn’t working. I don’t blame you for leaving the game. I just couldn’t bring myself to turn it off even though I suspected at halftime it was going to get ugly. I have only turned one game off or left early and that was the UF game 2 years ago.

It has never been that I thought Richt was brilliant. I thought he deserved the chance to right the ship. I have serious doubts that he did. I honestly didn’t think there was an adequate replacement available. I admit I was wrong about that (for about the fifth time today).

I never will pull for my team to lose.

I think Murray does not deserve the heat he was getting from you guys about last season. It remains to be seen how this season will go for him. I think he was utilized very poorly last night.

It is a good time to clean house. Bring in someone who can build a team out of these young players while installing new schemes. This team could be a contender in a couple of years. I am not sure with Richt. Definitely not with Bobo.

Why the rush to judgement?

Because Georgia had 8 months to prepare for this game and looked absolutely terrible. Undisciplined, poorly conditioned, out coached and out performed in virtually every possible facet of a 21st century football game.

Yes, Boise St was ranked 5th and it was theoretically a neutral field, meaning they *should* win most of the time.

A hard fought loss that was not decided until late would have been acceptable. But this baby was over by early in the 2nd half…that glimmer of hope late in the 3rd when the Dawgs cut it to a mere 2 TDs was fool’s gold.

It’s only a “rush to judgement” if you’re the type to accept and defend outright mediocrity.

Notice: Boise State’s offense is an example of a coach being on the “cutting edge.” He has 2 and 3 star recruits who are coached-up and easily beat a team full of 4 and 5 star recruits who are self-consumed, undisciplined, out-of-shape prima-donnas who can’t handle adversity. So I certainly understand why Bill is so positive. Hopefully we have enough sense next week to at least defer if we win the toss so we can avoid three penalties on the first three plays. But I’m really not all that confident we are smart enough to even learn that.

The problem is Richt is a product of the ACC and Bobby Bowden. With a huge size advantage on both lines we got manhandled (again). We cannot dominate even smaller teams. Is that coaching or philosophy? With his ACC mentality, MR does not see the need to run the football and dominate on both sides of the ball. As a Saint Bobby disciple, he does not have the team under control. Sporadic attempts to discipline do not send a message. The only positive of going into a game where a MWC team is favored over an SEC team and the SEC team is lucky to lose by 2 touchdowns is that on some plays we did not get a penalty. Beat South Carolina? Not based on what I saw last night (and the past 2 years). Music City Bowl is even looking iffy.

As others here have commented, we’re not rushing to judgment about this season. We’re just seeing what should be obvious to anyone who watched the game–or part of it in my case. I tuned out in the middle of the third quarter, when it was clear that UGa had no chance of recovering from a 14-point deficit.
Like many things in life, Richt’s tenure and the state of the football program is about the money. Don’t expect coaching changes unless and until the big-money donors have had enough of the underperformance on the field. As long as the donations roll in and people continue to buy tickets and merchandise, why should anyone get fired over losing a few football games? Richt, by the way, should be ashamed for taking his $3 million salary in exchange for another season of embarrassing losses.

CMR is a pious man. I don’t care. He wasn’t hired to build a parish. He was hired to win. I’ll take sinners like Nick Sabin or Les Miles (you know they are) to coach my ball club any day over a church deacon. BoBo must GoGo. Don’t put him on the sidelines, don’t put him in the pressbox, put him in the parking lot and send him packing. His next career step should be BoBo’s BBQ Shack – he was a horrid QB, so why would we think he’d make a great QB coach or OC? UGA in theory should be a consistent top five program. Now, it is hard to make a case they are even top five in the SEC – AL, FL, AU, LSU, MS, SC and AR – there is even a caee that VB, TN and KY are better. My goodness, when will the University, Michael Adams, the team and the UGA nation wake up to what the media and the rest of the country knows? We are not relevent anymore. We are notveven in the conversation. We are not invited to the party. Did you see that Big & Rich even dropped the Reference to UGA from the “Comin’ To You City” opening sequence for College Gameday on ESPN? We are now the opening game layup team for teams from Idaho. Soon, Vandy will start scheduling us for their Homecoming game, because they know a certain win will please their alums and open their coffers. We were there last night. We’ve seem that offense before. Its the same one that has failed against Florida 8 times in the last 10 years. We’ve seen that defense before. Its’s the same one that has failed against Florida 8 times in the last 10 years. Only 12 conference titles since 1892, that’s 1 every 10 years. Please, wake up! This is not a legacy of winning, it is a legacy of losing. No wonder the Chapel Bell has lasted ~ 120 years, because we haven’t worn it out ringing the sounds of victory. Wake up! The sky is falling, the house is burning, locusts are decending, aliens are invading, dogs and cats are living together. Or rather, Dawgs are losing to Wildcats. UGA has one of the top endowments, most profitable sports programs and the best facilities – what else could be wrong other than the leadership? How many more scooter accidents, how many more upaid traffic tickets, how many more D&D arrests, how many more academically ineligible, how many more “team rules” violations will it take? Wake up, WAKE UP! Who cares if the gymnastics, golf, soccer or Dungeons & Dragons teams are consistent champions? It IS all about football. Are you tired of all this great talent we squander during their college years going on to become top NFL talent? What does that tell you? Last night the UGA faithful crammed the GA Dome – the atmosphere could have inspired a 3rd grade ballet troupe to rise up against Boise State. Did you see the confusion of our player substitutions between plays on both sides of the ball? Our players didn’t know where to go or what to do – many times, the defense wasn’t even set when the ball was snapped. This is a lack of discipline, a lack of coaching. I don’t care what oil the new team nutritionist used to cook their pregame meal with, this program has no oil left in its well, we done gone dry. WAKE UP, WAKE UP! Pass the collection plate at the church of CMR today, so we can buy him out and pay for the moving vans.

They should have had mirrors on the sideline so they could admire the unis they said they loved. No one else did. I spent part of the game in sect. 305 and most in sect. 350. Everyone hated the unis. Not one comment that was positive. OK. Some woman in my area in 350 said, “I think the helments are cool.” Her son started to beg to go home right after halftime. His sister was in the band. Mother wouldn’t hear of it. I moved back to sect. 305 at the end of the third to be closer to the folks I attended the game with, even though my sight line was much better in 350. It didn’t matter, there wasn’t much to see. This was a team in disaray. After the half, the Broncos were bunched tightly at the 50, jumping and slapping each other. The Dawgs wandered aimlessly, lost in their power ranger garb. I think Nike did that on purpose. There was no way to read the numbers from the stands. Nike favors west coast teams. Let’s blame it on the unis, even though all of us know that Richt, Bobo and Grantham were the culprits. Sorry I was late today. I had a hang over and when I got up all I could see was red. Ugh.

Georgia has too young of a team to blame anyone on this loss. What Georgia fans should be worried about is the fact that when the game was tied 7-7, it seemed as if fans already gave up. Boise States fans where ten times louder than the UGA ones. Face it people in Georgia are poor sports fans BC we love to drink down here, simple as that.

Richt, Bobo, great game though. JUST WERE UP AGAINST A MORE MATURE TEAM.

Anybody that thinks play calling is not a huge part of the problem doesn’t know jack about football. Yes the o-line was getting beat alot by good d-lineman, but that means that you adjust your play calling to maximize your potential, not run up the middle out of the spread. That’s why the play-action out of the I was working the FEW plays that we used it. But, we should have established the run and play-action out I alot sooner. IMO Bobo is not capable of calling plays at this level, the DC’s are way ahead of him and since the head coach can’t see that, then he has to be held accountable.

I wathced the game on TV so I’m not sure, but I hope that it wasn’t UGA fans being so loud on our first two possessions, it seemed to me that it was causing the false starts, but I doubt the Boise state fans could’ve been making that much noise..I hope i’m wrong.

Sure don’t like to invoke references to other SEC coaches, but have to go there to make my point. Try to imagine ‘Bama’s Nick Saban or former Gator coach, Urban Meyer chuckling about anything in the post-game interview after a lopsided, sloppy loss. A reporter would almost be scared to crack a joke around them if Bama or the Gators, under these guys, had just played as poorly as the Dawgs did last night. I love CMR’s integrity, and am a huge fan of his up-front faith in God. I just want to believe that the mental lapses, poor scheming, and lack of adequate conditioning are gone, and that my beloved Dawgs will not only finish the drill, but let every opponent know coming in that they better bring their best because UGA’s bringing ‘em a butt whoopin! I want it to be under Coach Richt, but doubts have been growing since ‘09.

Losing a close competitive game would have been no problem for me, but it’s the way we lost and the way the team looked. They seem lost out there and so do the coaches. I mean they had all off season to prepare to play a bunch of white boys from Idaho!! I observed the same thing as the last few seasons: Loads of talent but no discipline, no sense of urgency, stupid mistakes, dropped passes and lineman getting man handled. What do you think the SEC teams are going to do to this team????

Richt isn’t a loser. He made us a relevant power again, years after Vince Dooley stopped paying attention, Ray Goff was, well, Ray Goff, and we had a morally (and financially) bankrupt Ponzi schemer with a pack of potheads playing for him.

But I’ve been a LA Laker fan all my life, and have even seen teams full of future HOFérs quit on HOF coaches. Sometimes, after awhile, teams stop believing whatever comes out of their coach’s mouth, no matter what the team and coach accomplished in the past.

Their is a complete leadership vacuum on the sidelines and on the field. We have enough talent on offense to average 40 points a game, but not if our OC has all of 5 plays in his trusty 1998 FSU playbook. Murray still looks like a kid out there. We never make the right adjustments. Our players look like they expect to lose, not expect to win. The offensive line is awful, again. The team plays with no fun or passion, because the coaching staff coaches with no fun or passion.

This all could change, and Richt deserved the chance to change it, but I don’t see it happening anymore.

I have attended most games since 1973. This trend of what we are seeing has become a Georgia Tradition of undisciplined ghetto hot mess since 1990 (except for a few bright spots). Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes, mistakes, mistakes, blown coverages, dropped balls, penalties, missed oportunities, missed routes, missed tackles, missed blocking assignments, embarrassing decisions, poor showings, poor blocking, play from behind, soljaboy instead of disciplined teamwork, Georgia has made a habit of playing well below capability. I shall no longer waste my time and money here. PS – This Kool Aid being spoken of here was that bad high school uniform worn at the dome. “Hey Kool Aid?”

Other than that the coaching was perfect. But damn did the uniforms look good (not). Same crap, different season. It’s time.

1- Peterson made a great adjustment when he went to the bunch formation to stop the UGA D backs from jamming his recievers. Grantham never figured out how to stop it. I noticed that when the Dawgs applied pressure they were able to stop BSU, when UGA rushed only three men BSU completed the pass every time. 2- A thrown together O line cannot manhandle a tough, veteran D line. Try some sweeps and short passes to move the ball, and a little misdirection, you won’t beat those guys playing straight up. I thought the Dawgs could run right at’em but it was obvious that wasn’t going to happen by the end of the first quarter. I believe in sticking with the game plan, but Bobo stuck with it too long. I am willing to wait and see what happens in the SEC and I hope CMR can pull it out, however I am very discouraged.

I really want to see how this season plays out…. Next week could be even worse than this week and we are playing the Freshman out of necessity which is good to see in my opinion. Boise is as good a team as I have seen in a long time. Seasoned, experienced and just damn good ballplayers. We seem to have the athletes but Boise has Ballplayers. How about their 2nd string center snapping the ball when he saw the play clock winding down (either 2nd or 3rd qter). That’s the kind of players we had in Pollack and Greene. I don’t know if we have those type of players now???? Will this coaching staff make adjustments and coach these kids up??? We’ll see….

Shane #1,

Good comments and observations. I don’t pretend to be an expert, but clearly there are problems in the assessment of the other team and the ability to make adjustments. Why a power sweep is not bread and butter with a 270 pound FB is beyond me. For that matter, with a mobile QB why not run some option? When they do run a dive, they don’t dive. They do a half gainer twist with a flip that takes three seconds to get the back the ball. Open a hole and hit it. Get three. When they line up to stuff it, power sweep or hit your full back or tight end with a short pass. We should be looking to get 4 and 5 yards a play. If a D starts to load it up and cheat, that’s when you send a speedster long to keep them honest. In my humble, unprofessional opinion. For what it is worth.

shane #1 : Good to see you back in the sandbox. IMHO, Georgia didn’t simply get outplayed, they got outsmarted and that is in turn what sums up many outcomes. The Bronco’s brought a lot of players with experience to the Dome and in the long run, it showed… LSU’s defense pulled out the biggest surprise of the night to me. They didn’t allow Oregon’s no-huddle to wipe them out like I honestly thought it would. The Ducks drove for 6 in a 19 plays that would have exhausted other D’s but LSU’s D didn’t seem to miss a beat their next opportunity out. Give Chavis, LSU’s Special Teams and the teams conditioning credit in this one…

The Dawggies were completely out of shape – did you see all the cramping going on and how much they were huffing and puffing – and they were playing INDOORS – This all goes back to poor coaching – team not ready. CMR can make all the stupid comments he wants to about “we are still 0-0 in conference play” – but it REALLY disturbs me that he DID NOT HAVE UGA ready to play – on national TV – against a WAC team – after a 6-7 record last season. There is NO EXCUSE for that.

Outclassed, OUTCOACHED, outplayed, outschemed defensively and offensively, outrushed, outblocked and they ONLY thing they beat Bloise in was number of penalties. i knew the game was lost by the 1st 4 plays. Oh, yeah,
one last out. OUT OF WORK, CMR. Bite me, Bulldogs. I’m sorry, but I’ve had enought of your losing lack of effort ways. This is my last year of season tickets, athletic department if CMR, Grantham and Bobo are still employed next season.

It would be foolish to “abandon ship” after only one game into the season. Why? Because giving up on the Dogs now won’t change a thing as far as the coaching staff. Also, this is a young team that has a chance to improve.

That being said, given all the buildup to this game, it was really unbelievable how unprepared we looked and were for what we faced. Boise played very well and didn’t have to resort to any gadgetry (except maybe their punts) or trick plays. They just lined up and beat us. Of all the teams we play this season, this is one game where I really thought Coach Grantham’s “alleged” attacking style of defense, with a little creativity, could have really paid dividends. We needed to get pressure on Moore and got almost none.

Why could we not adjust to what they were doing on punts? Were we so afraid of a fake punt that we wouldn’t even try to go after their punter who just waited for his coverage to run down the field before punting?

As for the offense, Coach Bobo also showed very little creativity (except for the Boykin play), but he won’t be able to do much until his offensive line can open a hole or provide protection for the QB. He had one play that was fantastic (the Boykin run) and never tried it again, that I saw.

As for the uniforms, they looked terrible. Of course it doesn’t matter what uniforms we wear as long as we play well, and I know this time it was all about the money from that northwestern shoe company. However, what the powers that be don’t seem to get is that it just makes the fans mad when we lose in them and we are asked to accept them because “the players like them”. It has now been pretty conclusively shown that the uniforms don’t motivate the players enough to make the slightest bit of difference in winning any games because we keep losing in spite of any uniform changes.

You would think going up against a team whose DBs have gone up against one of the best QBs in practice for the past five years would warrant taking a different approach than trying to emulate him. Why did they try to turn our great little mobile QB into a pocket passer last night?

shane#1

Chazzo, just my thoughts. Sometimes when a team has an O line as big as UGA’s you keep running inside to beat the D line up. Last night it was doubtful as to who was beating up whom. Keep running into a wall and you get a headache, the solution is to run around the wall. I have never liked a three man rush but many good coaches insist on using it, kind of like the prevent defense. Everybody uses it so it must work. NOT!!

Why doesn’t he let mobile Murry be mobile?????? Why didn’t he move the pocket, have some designed runs, etc. We have QBs behind Murray if they are afraid he will be hurt. They won’t even do QB sneaks with him. It is like he is made of glass.

A few things…….

1. Maybe Boykin will keep off his tweeter account for a while – his kickoff returns were nothing special.
Boykin/UGA = ME/team
Boise ST = TEAM/me

2. Our D-Line whipped your BIG SLOW O-Line. When you weigh 340LBS = expect 290lb DE’s to be a ton quicker – that proved so.

3. Our O-Line whipped you D-Line – so much for that smack I got hearing how superior UGA players were – bigger faster stronger. In fact- our players were more athletic.

4. Coaching – Boise new what to do when they had the ball -we had a plan and options.
UGA’s passing attack did not have a lot of checks for Murray.

Basically – UGA would be an average Mountain West team – from what I saw.

Why Rush to Judgement? Because with UGA the pre-season is always hype without backup. UGA always claims the best recruits for hype – it just has not proved itself in a long long time. This is from someone who saw Eddie Lee Ivery speared and fall limp in a great GT Georgia Game at Sanford Stadium many years ago, that Georgia Defense was feared much like the Auburn Linebacker who has moved onto the pros that haunted the bullpups last year enought to see printed yelps. The pre-season hype has proven itself wrong again. The bullpups start this season 0-2. The bullpups might as well been Ole Miss playing BYU. This week we will hear on the talk radios and in the paper that not is all lost and this time is full of big time recuits etc. etc. and that the season begins next weekend …The season started yesterday evening. I hope the hype turns true. Just don’;t believe it. Bullpups get spanked in their own backyard next weekend by a score too horrible to mention.

It’s all about toughness – Georgia has none. Tubberville said in the early 2000s that Richt needed to learn he has to run the ball to win the SEC. Pat Dye said we weren’t tough enough to beat Alabama (and probably wouldn’t have been without that motivation). We come out against a good team and wilt. I’m tired of the fake motivation – the uniforms, the tweets, the personal foul penalty – why isn’t it enough to play because you have the G on your helmet? I hope Richt can turn this ship around, but honestly I don’t see how. Even with the easiest schedule in years, if we continue playing like we did last night we could easily have another 6-7 year. Where is the player development? Where is the toughness?

Murray held onto the ball to long and didn’t read all his routes when other guys were open that led to him pressing throws. We continued not to make adjustments and insisted on running up the middle against a defense that pinched to the middle when runs to the outside were more successful the entire game. We threw the ball long when 5-10 yard dumps would have become 20 yard gains. Our defense left huge holes in the middle so a 5 yard catch could become a 15-20 yard gain. We acted the part in pre-game with the hype and look but we have the maturity of a high school team. Boise was the part acting very business and like they had been there before. They were not intimidated which is how we looked during the David Green era. We may get so called 4-5 star recruits but they looked lost during the game many times and were outplayed by a system that gets 2-3 star recruits. South Carolina looked a lot faster than Boise in their highlights so I am very worried and will feel lucky to get 8 wins.

Ever wonder how all the pre season hype was generated? Dawg offense playing dawgs defense. Both ain’t worth a flip so naturally they’ll look impressive against each other. Put them against other teams Off andf def and they fall apart. No wonder the coaching sux. They don’t know how to adjust because they don’t get to see it in practice when they all look so great.

I don’t know why Dawg fans expected a 6-7 team minus both running backs and their best receiver from last year to compete with BSU. The problem isn’t Bobo, or Grantham, or Willy Martinez, or even Richt. The problem is the administration. A major program like UGA shouldn’t be hiring a coordinator and hope he becomes a head coach. They shouldn’t hire a position coach and hope he becomes a coordinator. I’m an LSU alum, but have a daughter at UGA, so I have a vested interest. LSU hired Miles because he had experience as a head coach at a major school. Miles hired Chavis as DC because he had a long and successful history as a DC. He hired Kragthorpe because he is a former OC and head coach. Even Greg Studrawa, who replaced Kragthorpe upon the Parkinson’s diagnosis, has OC experience. And these guys are paid well. Do you think we have any more money than UGA? It’s all about passion and commitment to winning.

8 wins is next to impossible with this team. I see, at most six, 2 cream puffs, vandy, ole miss, kentucky, georgia tech. That is optimistic. No way we beat S. Carolina, Mississippi State, or Florida. Tennessee seems to be stronger than us and heading the right direction. Auburn will get things going by the time we face them. Georgia regresses as time passes.

You were ranked higher, had a better record over the last 5 years, have better coaches, better players, etc. So, congrats on your win, now quit acting like you beat a great team or that beating a poor UGA team equates to beating a good SEC team. Also, a little humility or graciousness after a win is a sign of class and respect, something you obviously lack. Good luck to your team for the rest of the year.

Dear Greg McGarity,

While we have had some relatively recent success in some minor women’s sports, we are pretty terrible in everything else. Even where we have found success, our teams can be depended on to choke at the championship level (See UGA Baseball vs. Fresno State for an example). I know you are still early in your tenure, but please start taking the drastic steps necessary to turn the athletic program around. The Alumni are tired of watching the hideous products and choking teams that we know accept as normal UGA athletics.

Sincerely,
Everyone who used to enjoy Georgia sports

One more thing. I’m an LSU fan first and an SEC fan second. Every one of us SEC school fans was pulling for the Dawgs last night, first out of regional pride, and second to put to bed any chance of BSU, with their weak-ass schedule, claiming a right to compete for a championship. Dawg fans, your team let us all down last night, not just because you lost, but they way you lost. For an SEC team with all its size and speed on both sides of the ball to be dominated up front like that is nearly unthinkable.

Four observations.

1. Our line cannot hold the rush for long patterns to develop and long patterns is what we throw.
2. Out zone defense does not work on a quarterback who throws short passes and never misses. His longest completion was 20 yards, about the length of a GA pattern.. The only time he threw long, the GA rush got to him and we picked the ball. Unlike GA which does not learn and adjust, Kellen switched to quick developing patterns.
3. Our line make no holes for the backs and we ran no power sweeps or wide plays to utilize our speed except one that went all the way.
4. Last point is that UGA is loaded with Sophomores and Freshman. Boise was loaded with 5th year seniors. We recruit such good players that they go pro early and we rarely have seniors and 5th year seniors who are truly good. The exception was Green and Pollack and look what we did then. We have some Freshman who will be impact player and gone by the end of the Junior season. Down side of recruiting great players.

Having said that, I can do a better job of game planning and game day coaching.

I get a little hopeful (I know, I put too much emotional energy into a game played by 18-22 year olds). Then I flash ahead in the nightmare (you know how dreams are). And what do I see. UGA wearing clown uniforms with circus music playing in the background. And just like at the circus, the clowns (UGA) can’t do anything right. Their helmets keep flying off. Their shoes keep coming off. The players all have Predator hair….and is that CMR with clown make up on? No, its a spray on tan! Aaaaaaggggghhhhh(screaming)…somebody wake me up!

I remember several years ago (after let down in 2008) I told my neighbors that UGA is not a top tier NCAA Division I program (they laughed at me and thought I was crazy). Well…it just goes to show you that at least this 45 year old (lifelong UGA fan (first game 2 years old) / MBA graduate) knows the difference between program excellence and one built on gimmicks/fads. Oh where are you Erk Russell?

I used to not like Nick Saban but I was wrong. That guy knows how to coach and how to assemble a great coaching unit. Same is true of Boise State.

It’s sad because UGA has finest resources (tier 1 in that category) and it should be able to reach tier 1. However, just like the Braves and other dsyfunctional Atlanta sports teams, UGA can’t get over the hump. Dan Mullen might be headed to UGA after this year.

The closest thing Bill King has come to be a football player was running water bottles out the the players during timeouts!

“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.”

It’s comments like that which lead so many of the Dawgs fans to delusional thoughts.

Bill …. there was NOTHING “dazzling” about Mitchell’s TD! He simply ran a FLY route (Bill, that’s when the WR runs straight towards the endzone, no cuts/curls, as fast as he can), the DB blew coverage, AGAIN (like with O. Charles the series before), and A. Murray made the throw. A Murray deserves the credit since he made the throw. All Mitchell did was run straight ahead … didn’t know that was such a tough thing to do.

I had false hopes coming into this season as did many dawg fans only to suffer another letdown and sad performance on both sides of the ball. They had their bright spots however it was all over shadowed by mistakes and poor play on both sides of the ball. The coaches still cannot right this ship from 3 years decline and must fall on the sword and allow new blood to step in and inject new spirit and most of all the ability to coach this team up and know enough to make the proper adjustments that will allow us to win.

Simply by signing the best 25 players in Georgia every year, Georgia should be able to compete for the national title on a regular basis.

It’s not that we lost Bill, it’s how we lost. It’s the same problems that have been around for 3-4 years now. They looked awful and I saw zero indication that any of the problems of the past 3-4 years have been fixed or are on the road to being fixed. They looked just as bad, if not worse, than the team that got embarrassed in the UCF game. Same lack of discipline, same 3 play offensive playbook and lack of any kind of creativity on offense, same lost defense, same lack of strength and conditioning, same situation with the defense on the field the entire freaking game, etc., etc., etc.

How many years are we expected to wait to see any improvement in any of these areas? Heck, at this point I’d just be happy to see improvement in any area. I’ve always liked CMR but seriously, we need a dang football coach, not a preacher. I’m not really sure his preaching and “making them better men” has really been very effective either considering how much trouble our players have gotten in during his tenure and the tweeting, showboating after a tackle when you’re getting your butt kicked, etc.

For the guy that ask how Boise had 18 fifth year seniors. They red shirt their freshman year and are smart enough to stay in school another four years. 1+ 4 = 5. They not only had 18 fifth year seniors but 25 seniors total. I would guess you would have a hard time finding 18 fifth year seniors total in the SEC which is why the DAWGS got their butts beat. The longer you play together the better the team gets. How many Boise players leave early for the NFL or flunk out by the second or third year. I would say none. You can’t expect a first or second year player to be as good a senior or fifth year senior until these kids start finishing school i don’t care how many stars they have by their name. The SEC is on the way down mark it down.

This team, like the previous teams are NOT in shape. If your are not in condition, your going to be out of position on defense, which we were most of the time after the 1st quarter. The OL is fat and slow and can’t sustain blocks, hence the poor pass protection. No excuse for being out of shape. Fire them all right now.

How’s that “dawg nation” thing working out? I like your new “dream team.” A rather wet one, it seems. Boy, y’all really showed those lumberjacks a thing or two about smash mouth SEC football, didn’t you? I’ll bet they were real impressed. I guess it’s time to dust off that old “Lindsay Scott-Lindsay Scott” cassette, and relive those days of glory so many decades ago. As for the present, it looks like you’re heading for Baylor-ville.

An improved S&C program. A nutrionist. A few quotes from the highly compensated HC and OC. “Hell, I know what I’m doing”. “We have looked at them on film since January”.

Good deal. For all of that hype and blowvation we get drilled 35-21. Throw out one rush by a defensive player and the guys in charge of what is “doing” and “knowing about them” had one drive of about 5-7 plays and 30 rushes for slightly over 50 yards. Boise is good, but not that good. And the Dawgs, they are not that bad. Nope they are worse.

From 2009, 2010, and even one game in 2011, a reasonable minded AD has to ask where is the program is going. Sorry about that word. Boise is a program. No one but CMR knows what his teams are. Alumni do. It ain’t what they want and support.

Let’s be honest about CMR teams. They under perform. They are not ready to play. The record since 2009 and the level of play is a statement to that. CMR’s team lack focus, intensity, desire, heart, and endurance. Two years are on record and a third does not look promising. Time. Time is important in sports, especially SEC football. Fall too far behind in the level of play and you may have doomed a program for along time. That is what the current AD is facing because his current coach can not solve the riddles of the current state of collegiate football. Virtually every spread offense CMR faces destroys his teams. He may have improved his Defense, but unfortunatley his OC is way behind. In the process the OC has destroyed a storied program in 2+ years. A university football program that ran the ball with style, fame, and dread on opposing teams.

No one respects or fears CMR’s teams now. Time is not on our side anymore in this game. The OC has brought this conference team to the bottom.

The signs were there as far back as 2007 but UGA caught Florida on a bad day, had the once-in-a-lifetime blackout game, and then got the luck in the polls to move up into a BCS at-large spot where we drew a Hawaii team that would’ve been a .500 team in a major conference. In 2008 the same problems manifested, and then in 2009 and 2010 the problems really blew up without the same talent to overcome the coaching. Think about this…How many games has UGA dominated in the last 4 seasons, and how many have they caught a huge break, the opponent made a huge game altering unforced mistake, or scraped by a lesser talented opponent?

This team has not been nationally relevant since Ronald Wlison Reagan’s first term as President. And our coach is best suited to run FCA meetings and go on mission trips.. If we want a holy man let’s hold a conclave like they do in Rome and choose someone. Mother Teresa is dead so she is out of the picture. This guy epitomizes wyss since his days as a QB at Boca Raton High School.

It would be interesting to get McGarrity’s true thoughts on the game. Obviously he wanted a win, but was the lackluster showing we made and the solid loss worth the possibilities he must have imagined before the game? Also, were the ridiculous looking uniforms worth the cash we presumably made? And just how much did we make for them? Unless it was over a million, it definitely was not worth it to me. Who approved the them? Did someone (anyone) really think they were NOT ugly?

Bill, you are just trying to pull out a few positives from all the negatives tonight. Its a fact that UGA out recruits Boise State. We get the 4 & 5 star recruits and they get the 3 star recruits. How does 3 star recruits out play 5 star recruits ? Its called being coached. The game started with 3 penalties on the first drive. That is unacceptable. I watched a HIGH SCHOOL game two weeks ago that didn’t have a penalty by EITHER team until the 2nd quarter. That’s lack of discipline.

Take those rose colored glasses off. UGA fans paid hard earned money to watch that sorry game. Richt makes $3 million dollars per year to coach at UGA. Why can’t he COACH THE 5 STAR RECRUITS TO VICTORIES ?

Let's be honest

I entered a comment earlier today that did not make the list. I am a 1963 UGA graduate and what I saw last nite was against everything that has ever defined a uga graduate. I saw fake uniforms, dyed mohawk haircuts, and me, me ,me. I also saw 2 teams that kicked the SEC’s butts in BYU and Boise State. The two teams that won were disciplined, smart. and focused. They were not in to trash talking, bling, and me me me.
I am ashamed to say that Georgia is my Team. I did not feel that way when Lindsay Scott ran by me on the 10 yard line in Jaxville. I did not feel that way when Herschel ran over Bates Brown in Knoxville. I was at Clemson when we lost that hearbreaker. I am now ashamed of being a Dawg. Red dyed Mohawks, trash talking linemen that have been blocked, coaches that make excuses for anything and everything that comes along, I have had enough. I am now 70, I entered Athens in 1959 and I knew I had arrived in Heaven. I am disgusted at what I now see going on at the U of GA. Could everyone get a little pride in your school , in your team and also yourself. MJT

Coach Richt has done a very good job of leading our program since the average Donnan years, but he has reached his apex with our program. It’s time for a new coach to take us to the next heights similar to Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Florida all past BCS national champions.

I’d hate for an alien to observe either team’s fan base and draw any conclusions on mankind! Just look at how many Gator fans come to a UGA football blog and post non-stop smack talk and obnoxious drivel. I don’t go to any Gator sites. Do you see UGA fans there?

Was that a joke or did i miss the humor?LOL! Are you kidding me? Our offensive line was as bad as i have ever seen at Georgia! Bar None! And now that i look back on it can you believe that Granthan didn’t even have a clue as to how to stop the short passing game of Moore&Co. We spent the whole night in 2nd and long and a nightmarish thought of seeing Samual in the backfield! Dawg fans do any of you remember a post saying that our coaches stated that after putting Samual back on offense they couldnt believe why they ever moved him to defense? Are you kidding me? Samual is no running back and it only shows how bad our depth is. If our AD had any sense IMO he would call Coach Peterson and offer him any amount of money that he and his staff needed to come in and bring respect to our program. With what Peterson has done with lesser talent CANNOT be overstated! We need him BAD. Will someone get the message out. Please!

“there are lots of SEC and UGA haters on this board. It’s really sad to see the haters try to compensate for their shortcomings by lashing out on an Internet blog – get a life, people, pathetic really.”

EVERYTHING IS FINE. WE WILL WIN THE 10 GAMES WE HAVE AGAINST CUPCAKES THIS SEASON.

Facts are that Georgia tek in 2009 was NOT good. They played a weak schedule. They LOST their good games, and even if we had lost to them, the win would have been vacated in ther back-to-back FOOTBALL NCAA PROBATION major infractions database. Other than that win 2009, we beat NO ONE IN 2008, beat NO ONE IN 2009, beat NO ONE IN 2010, and obviously will beat NO ONE IN 2011.

If that is fine with you, you sir are the problem we have with this football program nowadays. Now, please reply to me about Ray Goff. Look, there is a separation of Church and State. This is football. If he knows what the blank he is doing, he would have agreed with the fan from Macon. Our offense is horrible. 28 unanswered points. Let’s see, how many years has this been going on ? 2-9 vs teams at game time ranked in the Top 10 of the last 11 such games. Get real. We haven’t beat a single team who ended up in the AP Poll Top 10 for 6 seasons now in 2006 when we beat # 9 Auburn that year (while we lost 4 games including to 4-win Vandie.)

This was a tough game for me to watch as I have jumped on the Boise State bandwagon since moving out here. Funny thing is I saw the same reaction out of Oregon and VT fans after losing opening games the last two years. I think, given time, Peterson will devise a game plan that gives his team the best edge possible. My take on the four and five star player has evolved. They depend on their talents to succeed. Where the Boise player depends on the system. I have my doubts about the average four star committing to the Boise blue collar work ethic.

The Dawgs offensive line was pathetic. I thought the D line did well. Martin was held to three yards a carry when his average was six. It’s hard to sack Kellen as his stats bear out.

The real point is I think the Dawgs will fair better against a traditional SEC team that favors individual exploits over team cohesiveness. I liked the freshman back and could not figure out why Bobo was not doing shuttle passes or screens to get him in the open field. It is where Boise breaks down-get past the initial protection and assignments and let the superior athlete do his thing.

Oh well. One last thing the comments on here giving credit to Boise have reminded me of the class and basic goodness of the Dawg nation.

You can blame coaching and rightfully so, The win loss record is proof over the past couple of seasons.

Betcha one thing, they will come to work and play with heart. I saw a few bright spots in the game but nothing can explain how Big and SLOW our lines looked. My high school defensive end could get past our tackles. And how hard is it to get your more atheletic db’s up tight and bump the ALL white receivers when the ball is snapped?? And our LB’S could not cover bread! Kellen Moore wasn’t going to take off and run and yet he picked us apart like a precision surgeon. Bright spot? Thank God we don’t play LSU this year. Boykin, Mitchell, and Jones I give you props. The rest of you needs to do some soul searching on that roster and it’s gonna be a LONG LAME DUCK Coached season when he looses these kids.

Georgia will not be able to win the Florida game as long as CMR is the coach. And until UGA gets back to winning vs. UF, not “special games” like Boise, they will continue to be ignored and irrelevant. It’s a mental block in the players minds and they lack the confidence in the staff because they have seen the big game losing cycle go on years before they even arrived in Athens. Losing yearly to UF became acceptable and now it’s acceptable against any team UGA plays who has a winning record. How many recent press conferences with CMR begin and end with,” they played better than we did” or,” we didn’t want it as much as they did”, or, we haven’t learned to finish, or, oh well, we “just gotta GATA next week or next year” to show everyone UGA is still relevant. To even make those kind of statements are an admission of guilt that UGA football indeed IS CURRENTLY IRRELEVANT in the national scope of the sport. Even more so when you get mauled (by a team from IDAHO), in red custom made comic book uniforms the first week of the season before a national television audience.

UGA scheduled its game of the season vs. a top 5 team. There was no logic in that decision just after your team just finished a 6-7 season. Only arrogance and denial of how inadequate the UGA coaching staff is at present would be the only reason to call out a top 10 program only to get embarrassed nationally in your own backyard, home away from home in the mighty SEC’s Capital city . Maybe CMR felt UGA was to the point where he felt the Dawgs were “entitled” to a big win vs. a winning program because of a few minor off-season changes that UGA made. UGA needs major changes to be made sooner or later. Truth is Boise is a good program that has been about 10 years in the making. They have steadily improved their coaches and level of athletes along with hard work each year to get were they currently are. Boise appears to be strictly business and no gimmicks about how they get things done. They brought a confident veteran team to the Ga.Dome and the days of seeking entitlements to BCS relevance are over in Boise. They were well prepared and stood their ground in the face of adversity and triumphed in a hostile venue over 2100 miles away from their home. If they run the table with their schedule they may have a legimate shot at the BCS title game. Unlike UGA whose gimmicky, fading program has continued to regress and now must face and accept its irrelevancy for yet another season. UGA showed flashes of talent during the game, but the talent can only take them so far and that’s wear the coaching is supposed to kick in. UGA’s coaching in all 3 phases of the game was and still is inconsistent. Meaning they can win against poorly coached or lesser talented opponents (on UGA talent alone), but will lose games against superior talent or equally talented, better prepared and well coached opponents. So in essence UGA’s staff is paid millions to solely out-recruit not out-coach their opponents on the football schedule. Thus this explains all the top recruiting classes yet finishing a disappointing 10-3, 8-5 and 6-7 the past three seasons.

Big time programs (like UGA was) are no place for “on the job training of the coaches”. Some of UGA’s coaches may need to step down and learn their craft on a lesser publicized, smaller stage. That’s why Miami University of Ohio is called the “Cradle of Coaches” in honor of all the great coaches who started there to learn how to coach before they became legendary household names in a positive sense. Some current UGA coaches are building a legacy of infamy in the negative sense amongst the UGA faithful.

Supposedly tougher competition looms in the SEC, and if the performance given in the Boise game is any indication, then potentially another long season lies ahead for the Dawgs. HunkerDown! and don’t forget to GATA.

The UGA fooball program has not become a “second rate” one as someone aove suggested. What is and has been the case is that a lot of the UGA fans are second rate due to their constant complaining and negativism. Get a life UGA fans, your team cannot win every game.

I refuse to scape-goat any one coach in particular concerning the decline of the football program at UGA. The burden of responsibility falls on the Head Coach concerning his staff. If he puts total trust in people who are not prepared then ultimately that Head Coach will pay the price for making bad hiring decisions. With that in mind I want to speak on all the acrimony directed at UGA OC Mike Bobo. First I have to say despite all that has happened and not happened Mike is and always will be a Bulldog. He loves Georgia and will bleed Red and Black if you cut him. Mike has been a personal family friend and no matter what we from Thomasville, will continue to pray for and pull for him throughout his tenure as OC at UGA. I have spent some time with Mike and he is as nice a guy as you can find, well mannered and personable. You would say the same thing about him if you were able to spend time wit

"CaneDawg" : OOPS !!

September 5th, 2011

……with him. Mike is under tremendous pressure trying to put things together for the Dawg offense to succeed this year. Mike is a very good quarterback coach and that may be his calling more than being a offensive coordinator. But he has eleven more games to continue to try to improve the offense. No matter how badly he or his family is treated or talked about I know he won’t give up because he simply loves UGA too much to give up or quit. So let’s try to tone down all of the criticizm. He’s the OC and ridiculing him won’t make things any better. CMR was his own OC and handed the duties over to Mike, whether Bobo was ready or not. So if there’s anyone to blame for that decision then you must take a look at the Head Coach. Because if your boss offered you a promotion that paid substantially more you would accept that promotion too, ready or not.

I guess a little Bobo bashing is in order. Clearly the game plan or at least the execution was not real good on Sat. I began to wonder, would any other team want Coach Bobo, has any other team tried to hire him, and has he ever “applied” for other high profile OC jobs or head coaching positions. If what I think is correct, then are we just an emplyment agency for “OL DAWGS”.
That is OK if it is what we want to be, but I think we want more and better. Most of us fans may not be real football experts and coaches but we can predict the calls so I guess it is not hard for opposing coaches. We have talent but I do not think we are treating them well with the way they are being coached.
On defense, how many times have we seen the defense not alligning until the last minute. I know that you don’t want to “show” to early but you also don’t want to be late.
Well that is enough from the gut, I will be there Sat. and will pull for the DAWGS to win and will be there the rest of the year (well maybe not for Coastal Carolina – our church is having a work day and anin’t I lucky). Love, Cullowheedawg

Boise gave the SEC the perfect game plan on how to beat UGA. DC Grantham has no clue trying to stop a precision short passing game. Further more, no need to double team the 6′6″ 350 lb. nose tackle, he was neutralized all night by a 5′11″ 280 lb. center.

Defensively, the offensive line is fat, slow and can block their sister. Murry will lead the league in sacks, not passinf effiency. I don’t know who the best QB in the SEC is, but I know it’s not Arron Murry.

O.K. I’ve had a day to wash it out and think about it. FIRST. Lets STOP trying to imulate other football teams, i.e. AUBURN on offense. That stupid; looking to the sideline stuff, for what ever reason is JUNK Mark Richt and makes a football teamm look amurish IMO. I don’t care if it works for other teams. It don’t look good on us. Get it gone. BE GEORGIA AND WIN/LOSE AS GEORGIA. SECOND: With the lose of Tree’ on defense, it just makes sence to go back to a 4-3 or even 4-2-5 at this point. We are still a team best suited for it. Don’t waste players. Mike Thornton is going to rot on the sidelines because he does not fit a 3-4. He has the perfect size to be the Quick Tackle position. A nose tackle he will never be. This would mean we move D.Tyson, A. Jones back to tackle and leave D.Lott and G. Smith as the Large DE position across from Washington, Drew and Strippling at the Small DE position. Move J.Jones back to MLB. Move C. Robinson back to OLB along with Rambo as the other. Leave the secondary as is.

I have my own take about what is wrong with the DAWGS but I am just going to keep it to myself for now. I went back and watched the game over, and I have to say, that some things are pretty obvious and a few take a little studying to discern the problem. I will say that I don’t see the changes needed from the last two years in one particular area of the game for UGA. If I can see them, you can bet the pros. that coach this game for a living, can see it. Any objective analysis a fan may have is best left out of these blogs, as it will be an object of all of the people that are so negative about UGA all together, or, and it saddens me to say this, some die hard fans that don’t want to see or hear the truth.
If you are a die hard fan, as I am, it pains you to see the demise of a great program. I would like to think that we could fix the problems from this week forward, but I don’t see that happening. I will simply cheer for the DAWGS and go off in my corner and lick my wounds or bark loudly after each game. With my limited sports budget though, I will say that right now, my NASCAR tickets for Oct. at Talladega, seem like a better investment than my football tickets as far as getting the results I want to see at each venue.

Hi Bill. This is far from a rush to judgment after one single game. This is an accumulation of failure which spans over many years. Cancer allowed to spread unchecked eventually becomes fatal. The UGA football program is in its final death throes under Mark Wretch. Here goes…Being a rabid Dawg fan I was willing to buy into the hype. I was desperate for a return to glory! I put the abysmal disaster of that embarrassing bowl choke behind as much as possible. I listened to all the preseason lies. So desperate was I to believe. I actually was semi confidant heading into the regular season opener. The illusion lasted exactly one offensive series. Three penalties in that series. Three! If that is not coaching what is it? I witnessed a worse group than the one that stumbled in the bowl defeat. Much worse in my opinion. Arrogance from a bunch as pathetic as this one is far worse than pitiful. This team plays stupid and with no pride. It is true that a team takes on attributes of its coach. Mark Wretch was as lost on sidelines as ever before. Staring into space without a clue. All the emotion of a concrete brick. If anything this unit is worse that the 2010 edition. If Wretch has any feeling for the UGA program and fans he should do the Christian thing by tendering his resignation immediately. His heart is simply not with the Dawgs any more. Otherwise it is going to be another nightmare campaign. Just as I predicted last year after Wretch was given another reprieve. The Bulldog Nation deserves so much better!

This program is completely finished under Richt. He was brilliant in the beginning because he was new to the SEC. The pure fact as the CEO of our program to retain Mike Bobo is a pathetic. Please remember Grantham was our fourth pick for DC. The good ones know Richt is not going to win again and his days are numbered. Money is the only reason Richt got him. The only positive I see about UGA at the moment is we have McGarity. He was not going to change anything year one but he knows what winning looks like and I would not expect this season to be overlooked. Our team was not competitive in phase of the game with the exception of Drew Butler. Yes, our punter, who wants to brag about a punter. This team needs to find the “drive” from within themselves. There is not going to be any outside guest or even a motivational speech from Richt. The fire is gone and hopefully so is the coaching staff. Here is to another waste of the best time of year, SEE YOU IN ATHENS.

Bill, you should only write articles for the UGA newspaper. Loyalty is one thing, but there comes a time when you need to step back from your bias towards UGA football and accept the fact that the bulldogs are now a 2nd rate team. Richt has slowly descended this once proud program into just another also ran. It all starts and ends with the coach. The entire coaching staff is poor by SEC standards. The recruiting is abysmal when each year other teams around the nation has outstanding Georgia kids playing for them. UGA on the other hand seem to pick up mostly thugs with the wrong attitude. The ill discipline on the field with penalty after penalty, year in year out is becoming the norm. The coach standing on the sideline looking lost doesn’t help much either. The entire team just looks very poorly coached. I think ten years of Richt is ten years lost. Enough is enough. UGA is fast falling behind teams like Alabama and LSU. It’s time to do the right thing, fire Richt and a big time, big name coach. The UGA supporters deserve this and more.

I do believe that Bonzo the chimpanze is a better offensive play caller than Dodo. I also believe that whatever coaching smarts Richt ever possessed abandoned him at least three seasons ago. Wretch has lost his coaching fire. If mission work is in his heart then he should go for it. Let him follow his true calling. Anywhere but in Athens!

It’s obvious that a wait and see attitude is not going to cut it with most fans after almost 4 seasons of extremely sub-par coaching. Laughing a post-game press conferences and saying over and over again “We got to work harder and get better” should be grounds enough for dismissal.

I just can’t wait to hear the excuses next week about how the season is not lost and that we still have a chance to be SEC Champions if meteors fall on Columbia, Gainesville, and Baton Rouge. I’ll be saying “I told you so” when we’re 0-2.

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 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 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.

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?

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.

And another thing.

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.

Dawgs win this eeeeeaasssyyyy 48-21.

I hope you did not go to Vegas on that pick.

WDE – September 2nd, 2011 – 1:08 pm
@Billy Bronco now sure about taking anything to the bank but we are going to take your bunch to the woodshed….again

That’s the problem WDE. UGA went to the woodshed while the game was being played on the field.

DawginLex – September 2nd, 2011 – 1:17 pm
Any Boise supporter want to discuss this? Points allowed to “real” teams
VT-30 – Oregon St 24 – Nevada 34
kinda debunks that defense rating doesn’t it?

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

JB – September 2nd, 2011 – 2:24 pm
coaching is probably the only advantage they have, hate to say. Surely not the athletes

Really JB? Did you even watch the game?

DAWGS forever – September 2nd, 2011 – 2:48 pm
DAWGS 24-13
Our D is improved and we have enough O to score a few times. They only get 1 TD and the rest FG.

Well, at least you got the “we have enough O to score a few times” right.

Athens= God’s Country – September 2nd, 2011 – 5:07 pm
Dawgs win 35-24.
Probably by more

Very close on the score. You just had the teams reversed.

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. Bobo, should be a high school quarterbacks coach. Despite having NFL talent year after year, his play calling continues to be a predictable as night following day.

I do believe this is the best team GA will play this year – I would rather start of playing a good team and try to make adjustments than beating a cupcake and not know what your weaknesses/strengths are – I do believe too many GA fans expect way to much – this win it all are fire everyone is crazy talk – believe me guys you do not want a new coaching staff and you do not want Kirby Smart – That being said I hope GA can work on what went wrong and improve on the blocking and we will be ok – Do I think GA will win out – NO – do I believe they can -Yes – however if the adjustments are not made and the coaches start putting a little more faith in their players then it will be a long year – once again – you people do not realize that Boise State is ranked 5 for a reason – they really are a good team – and again I believe they are the best team GA will play this year.

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 -

Hopefully we find more consistency on both sides of the ball. Both lines kind of under performed and yet the Boise lines were no cup cake team. There is much to be hopeful for so I say….Go DAWGS!

2cents you could have saved that my friend you sound as foolish as Bobo and Richt wouldnt be surprised it you were one of them, i dont care where youare ranked when you clearly have Superior talent and playing a freaking home game this has no choice but to be on the coaching. with comments like the one you made this is why UGA football is where we are now, like i said Spurrier will look at that Boise tape and take advantage of the lack of play calling i promise you i can give you the first 4 plays UGA will run on offense they NEVER CHANGE EVER!!! 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 man of soon to be 56 years of age, I can remember when fans stood with their team no matter what. 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. Treat this man as you yourself would want to be treated. Go Gators

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.

1. We had 8 months to prepare and that was the best we could do?
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.

Make some changes after the USCe game if not a better showing. Keep the damn helmets on your head or cut your hair. Too busy worrying about the dreads than player safety and you certainly cannot play your best when you are worried because your helmet is not attached to your head.

The coaching has become unreal. You have to wonder what the point of the work in the spring and summer was. Did they practice live tackling? Branden Smith looked like he wanted to throw his purse at the ballcarriers instead of hit them. The rest of the team struggled to wrap up. Zero sacks in 34 pass attempts? Why would they let the Boise receivers run free off the line against an offense completely dependent on timing and the underneath routes and with slower players? Grantham needs to take a serious look in the mirror after this one. They just looked unprepared for a full contact game.

On offense, the spread attack was a disaster. Our line is horribly fat and slow. The only chance we have to be successful is to line up in an I formation with Charles at TE and Figgins at FB and run it right at them and create some opportunities with play action. The fact that Bobo intentionally switched to an offense that requires our linemen to block quicker players in open space boggles the mind. There were several plays where none of our receivers were able to get off the jams of the Boise DBs and Murray had no time to wait for them to clear. Receivers that cant get open and a line that cant block make for a bad outlook for 2011.

My God Bill, did you watch the same game we did? I saw nothing positive come out of that game. In fact it reassured me that we will probably go 4-8 or 5-7 this year.

What has changed from last year to this year? NOTHING, that’s what. Same old crap we saw last year. The only staff change Richt made was the strength coach and you saw how that worked out! Our guys are terribly out of shape, they couldn’t keep up with the Boise players at all. They were so tired they couldn’t even get back to the line of scrimmage before Boise snapped the ball for the next play.

Same old horrible play calling from Bobo. The only time we used our speed to the outside was the play with Boykin. We never got Crowell to the corner. 3rd and 3 and Bobo is calling a 50 yard bomb just like the moron did last year. Did you Kellen Moore throw 50 yard bombs? No, he killed us with little dump off passes over the middle to keep drives going.

Penalties, bad tackling, bad blocking, it all sucked just like it did last year.

It’s not shameful to lose to Boise State, they are a top 5 team. But we looked just as horrible as we did last year.

Remember Richt saying that in the off season he was going to become a “Football Expert”? Well he gets an big fat “F” on his first test!!!!
