Dogs fans looking for answers find only more question marks

Georgia's third-down choices against Boise State left many fans puzzled. (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

Georgia's third-down choices against Boise State left many fans puzzled. (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

The views on Mark Richt’s team (and the UGA head coach’s future) varied widely at a family reunion and 70th birthday celebration for my uncle that I attended Sunday in Oglethorpe County.

Some were ready now to write fini to the Richt era; others took the tack I did in my postgame blog, that losing to the Top 5 team in the country in the first game doesn’t necessarily mean a doomed season.

But even the latter folks (me included) were disappointed with how little improvement the Dogs showed (with the offensive line, in fact, regressing) and how absolutely and shockingly clueless the Georgia offensive game plan proved to be.

Among the many questions raised: Could Todd Grantham not come up with any adjustments to increase pressure on Boise’s Kellen Moore? Did Richt and Mike Bobo really think going to a no-huddle shotgun offense that minimized use of the Dogs’ fullbacks for protection and put the blocking onus on the true freshman tailback was the best approach?

Also, where did Bobo get the apparently steadfast conviction that a run up the middle is the best way to follow an incomplete pass on first down? Does he really think a simple draw play was the best call on third-and-15? (The Georgia crowd’s boos made their thoughts on the subject clear.)

And then there was Bobo’s other approach to third-and long, keeping Aaron Murray standing there searching in vain for an open receiver downfield rather than throwing the kind of quick strikes Boise was using to pick apart the Georgia defense.

After chewing over these and other questions Sunday, one thing we all seemed to agree on was how important this coming Saturday’s game is, and that if the Dogs come out of the South Carolina game with an 0-2 record it might take nothing short of running the table to quiet the growing discord in the Bulldog Nation — and a win in Jacksonville will be a must in order to save Richt’s job.

Needless to say, in order to generate some smiles and laughter at the reunion we had to change the subject off Georgia football.

FROM SATURDAY’S NOTEBOOK: My initial objections to those Pro Combat jerseys was aesthetic, but the game proved them impractical, too. The black-on-red numbers were difficult to make out from the stands, and it didn’t help that Georgia’s jerseys didn’t have the players’ names on the back (unlike Boise’s). Burn ’em, I say. … I really hate those rugby-style punts Boise used most of the game. … Right before Brandon Boykin’s touchdown play, a sharp-eyed fan behind me said, “Wait a minute, we have a No. 2 on offense?” Too bad we didn’t see more of him on that side of the ball. … Finally, the much lauded new chapel bell UGA promotional film got played on the big screen at the Georgia Dome Saturday night, but the Redcoats played right over it. It was that kind of night.

Dont’t forget, BSU will probably be our toughest opponent this year on the regular schedule. It just gets easier from here. We will probably be playing so much better by the end of the season, we will beat the nerds by 40 or more.

I could have stomached a loss to a #5 Boise team but not another display of ineffective coaching, poor play and out performamce against less talent. . I love the dawgs but it is really hard right now to support that sort of effort (or lack there of). Gonna be a long time before qe are happy again.

I’ve seen this for the last couple of years, no offensive line, no receivers, no leadership from the QB. Richt and company haven’t forgotten how to coach but they have obviously forgotten to recruit linemen and receivers. Call me when the new coaching staff gets to town.

How is it possible to have eight months to get ready for a game and come out looking like that? I like our coaches but they have showed us they don’t have a clue what they’re doing. That was Bobo’s worst job yet! I don’t agree with booing the players but I understand the frustration. I’m finally ready to say it – we need new coaches. It’s not because “this is only the first game” – it’s just the latest bad game over the past three years.

New uniforms, Evander Holyfield, Herschel Walker, Ga Dome and a ” dream team” recruiting class still wasn’t enough to get UGA a win. Another off-season full of hype about this is the year and Crowell is the next great one. Yes I am a TECH fan. Yes UGA owns us. Uga should beat Tech. Go ahead and bash me a you want about beating TECH, I could care less, I’ve heard it before. I’m just glad we don’t have to hear all these Uga rednecks talking trash all year now that their season is already a dissapointment. Over the past 10 years, UGA has averaged the #2 recruiting class in the country, but can’t get it done. If I were a Uga fan I would be highly disgruntled. The good thing is, Im not! What’s the problem mutts ? Please explain?

one positive going into south carolina game is that we know where we stand. No big head that we may have had if we had waxed some 1AA school. the team hopefully will be in a desperation mind set and will play with extreme urgency. if they do, who knows what may happen. get by Carolina and then some of the great young talent will have a few weeks to gain some experience before the stretch run (Florida). Ive been an extremely loyal Richt fan -and still am, but one more lethargic effort and even my patience will begin to fade. Come on Dogs – (to quote from Waterboy) YOU CAN DO IT!

We are just a bad football team. It’s just that simple. We lack preparation. Seriously, it looked as if we had practiced maybe twice this year. It doesn’t help that to go along with being completely unprepared, we never make any in-game adjustments to anything. I can’t even remember a Goff team that was as bad as we are now.

The Georgia defense’s worst enemy for the last several seasons has been the Georgia offense. You have tight end with great hands. You have a young freshman talent with blazing speed. You have a 272 lb. fullback. 4th and 1…and Charles goes in motion and leaves the DE completely uncovered.

For almost four full seasons, Mike Bobo has proven to be unreliable, ineffective, unimaginative, and incapable. When you cannot execute a simple run up the middle, when your offense looks completely inept, when you cannot even put a drive together that gets you inside the red zone, you have to ask yourself if we’re doing the right thing. You have a visiting quarterback you want to try to keep off the field, which you do by working the clock and running short, high percentage plays.

Why is the establishment will to accept such mediocrity? I think it is unfair to the athletes that come to Georgia to provide them with below average coaching and development of their talents.

I think the defense was gassed after they had been on the field pretty much the entire first half. They were done by the time the 2nd half began. Grantham knew it, they knew it.

One thing, Bobo has no short game. His approach is to get a really big play and use simple run plays with NO fullback which is asinine. Everyone knows this and this is why he is predictable. I have seen more organization in offensive play calling from middle school football coaches.

My point is, were is Richt in all of this? Really, he was hired to bring an offensive philosophy that would guarantee long-term success at UGA. It has been steadily going down hill. I understand that we might have defensive issues, but the offense is squarely on the shoulders of Richt as far as I’m concerned. Blame Bobo all you want, Richt made the decision to keep him on, Richt approves of what he is doing, it’s Richt’s responsibility.

I know it is one game, but based on one game nothing changed in the offensive playcalling from last year. If anything, the new formations suck.

Thought the uniforms made it harder to see the players for the players themselves also. Need to get rid of them.

In my opinion, Murray does not so much hold the ball too long as the patterns take too long to develop. Without good pass protection and receivers and backs who can go all the way after a completion, we should be peppering short passes around to open up the game and get skilled players into open field position. Get every pass play off in less that 3 seconds. Do to SC what Boise did to us.

We also should be running power toss sweeps to take advantage of blocking full backs and powerful fast backs.

The cupcake schedule after USC virually guarantees that UGA will finish with a winning season, probably end up 7-5. The tragedy is that those wins will save Richt’s job for another year, so this time next year, the big question will be why didn’t McGarity sack Richt this year.

On and on it goes. Get rid of Richt now and spare us more misery.

“McGarity can size him up in person in a few weeks.”

McGarity knows Dan Mullen better than he knows Mark Richt. McGarity worked in the same building with Dan Mullen at Florida. If he don’t know him now, he never will.

What is wrong with the uniforms Georgia wore in 1980?

Why the need to change uniforms every year?

Penn State has been wearing the same uniform since 1950.

The last question also applies to Georgia Tech.

Dawg Whisperer

September 5th, 2011
5:12 pm

This is my first post on any of the AJC blogs since the game which allows me to be a little more reflective than reactive. Fortunately, McGarity does not have the luxury of the average fan that spouts out whatever negative thought enters the mind. I’m not criticizing fans because they’re passionate about UGA and that’s a lot better than the alternative (see GT).

That being said, I have no problem taking a wait and see approach to see how the entire season unfolds. I can remember a few years ago when UGA started slowly but jelled as the season progressed and wound up having a good year. I do, however, think that the downward trend of the line play is a problem that Richt will have to correct or the season may unravel pretty quickly.

If UGA can re-group and play well and win (not mediocre and somehow win) against S.C., I expect the rest of the season to be a success. Go dawgs!

How long is it going to take for UGA fans to realize that UGA is simply no longer relevant in the SEC? In the national picture, UGA isn’t even a blip on the radar, and hasn’t been since the preseason #1 ranking four long years ago (and you remember how that season went into the tank).

Sit back and be grateful for the six or seven wins we’ll get every year. Coaching genius Mark Richt may take us to 7-5 or even 8-4 occasionally, but other teams will still win the SEC, meaning no BCS bowls and no top 10 final ranking. Most years, UGA will be very lucky to finish in the top 25, and only after a big bowl win over a nobody opponent.

It’s a different world now, and fans need to adjust their expectations downward to reflect reality. Unfortunately nothing is going to change until UGA changes its mediocre coaching and starts recruiting intelligent athletes with some character. That’s where the difference is, and that’s why everyone outside Bulldawg Nation just laughs at Dawg fans getting so excited year after year about what a great recruiting class UGA gets. It doesn’t matter how many blue chip high school players go to UGA, they simply don’t get the coaching they would get at Florida or Alabama or LSU, to name three schools whose programs are far ahead of UGA. And that’s not going to change as long as Mark Richt is in Athens.

UGA was out coached and it’s as simple as that! We recruit 4 and 5 star at UGA and Boise has one and two star recruits. UGA made no adjustments at all for the second half?

I don’t wanna hear I don’t support our team..I do and that’s why I expect better from the coaching staff…if we don’t run the table Richt and Bobo must GoGo!

No fire in Richt whatsoever…Richt laughs at a loss….celebrate a tackle when we are down two TD…… SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE……and the plaYERS AIN’T GOING NO WHERE.

It appears to this old fan, that the days of Richt’s finese ‘em to death offense is on it’s last legs. It is time to look west at Alabama, they line up and knock you backwards, nothing fancy just good old-fashioned football. And they do it on both sides of the ball. Maybe Richt will prefer to preach the Good Word and let someone else coach UGA…at least I can hope.

I agree, we need to make adjustments. I’ve thought for a couple of years than Bobo needs to stop calling the plays – Richt should be calling them.

It’s frustrating to see our offense look so impotent.

But we fans need to learn how to talk about these things in a more constructive way. We have a “the sky is falling” mentality in the Bulldog Nation, and we bail on the team almost immediately during a game if anything goes wrong.

I didn’t go to the game, but it seemed as if the fans didn’t help much in the Dome.

CMR has carried this team from the penthouse to the outhouse. CMR making his $3 million per year got outcoached by BSU Coach Peterson only making $900,000 per year. UGA is not going to have a winning season again with CMR. CMR has lost his drive and his heart to coach.

I never post on these things, and I very rarely read them, but if you know anything about football, then you must be realistic about this: The DAWGS will never win consistently, or win the big games as long as Bobo is the OC and Arron Murray is the QB. Arron is a great kid and has a lot of good qualities as a QB, but the fact is that he is simply not a “winner”…He proved it time and time again last season and he has already started his inability to win again this season. I remember David Green being in countless situations and “changing the call” based on what the defence gave, but not “robot boy”…if it ain’t there, just take the sack?… There is a big difference in being a good numbers QB, and being a winner. Just my opinion.

They really are. I will defend the defense some as you can’t go 3 and out over and over and over and put them back out there every three minutes against a Heisman type QB. I’m afraid Carolina is going to win just based on out line play. Our OL is pretty bad, and both our lines had 30, maybe 40 pounds on Boise and couldn’t do a thing. No Sacks I believe. Really sad. Gonna win some games against folks nobody cares about. This team could go 9-3 or 8-4 and it’s gonna feel blah. Go Dawgs.

Our line-backing core couldn’t start for Buford and that is the truth. With Ogletree out for the year it is going to be ugly.

Let me call the plays.
i can call for the I formation with Figgins leading Crowell, not Samuel, who should go back to linebacker where we obviously need him.
i can call bubble screens and quick slants to get rid of the ball fast and put it in the hands of playmakers.
i will call for slow down, not hurry up offense, which looked awkward and had zero effect, except to confuse our own players.
no more shotgun draws, either. See Figgins leading as per above…
I would also call for roll outs to buy time since the O line cant block .

ok so there.
if i can sit in the stands and predict virtually every play we are going to run, then for gosh sake who are we trying to fool?

Did anybody see the 1st person 2 Boykin after he scored? It was Murray which means he has speed. So yea just keep him in the pocket 2 get killed. Our line sucks!!! So how do u help. You call a couple of qb draws!!! After he runs a couple of times the defense ends would lose a step and then he would hav a little time!!! Bobo play calling has been the same since he took over. 1st down incomplete pass 2nd down is always a run. 3rd and long a draw or a 15 yard out which ends with a sack!!! Can Murray not throw a slant? Wr screen where has that gone??? What is wrong with playing both big dt @ the same time!!! What is wrong with putting both dt on offense line on 4th and 1!!! Worse case scenery is us winning 9 or 10 wins and we keep Richt!!! It will set us back another 2 years. Nobody is scared 2 play uswe have a Bobo calling plays!!! Just imagine Murray playing in a spread offense with his speed!!!

Flat Tire,

I am not kidding, you may go ahead write a little playbook for coach Bobo. For example, you may list options for run-offense like:

Option 1: run up the middle
Option 2: run to the left
Option 3. run to the right

That way, coach Bobo can remember left/right can be options too. Currently it seems he only knows the middle.

As someone else mentioned, playing Boise let us know where we stand. He mentioned we might play with a sense of urgency. I hope so. One would think they would, but I’ve come to understand that what is logical doesn’t necessarily follow under CMR. I thought they would play with a sense of urgency against Boise, but they seemed to except their fate rather calmly. CMR is famous for deluding himself and his team into thinking that they are ready to play and are the superior team….No urgency needed.

I have a theory about CMR. I’ve seen only one other poster mention it. I think you will see no changes in the offensive play calling, CMR thinks the UGA fans are idiots. He’s said all the right things, but I think he’s decided that he will say the things that satisfy UGA fans and then turn it around by doing it the way he’s always done it. In his mind, he’s thinking that when he turns it around doing it the FSU way, he can say “see, I was right and y’all were a bunch idiots that were panicking.” (He will say it only to himself. That’s his style. He might let slip a wise crack or two in public, but that’s it.)

I’m sorry folks, but on opening day when you have to put in a walk on at LB for an injured player in year 11, something is not right. Take away the 80 yard run, and when you have 29 yards of offense in the first half, in year 11 of the play book, something is wrong. Then the opposing OC is quoted after the game as saying. ” we knew exactly where the open routes were going to be, and they were there all night long,” in year 11, something is wrong’

Lake…I agree and think you are correct. Unfortunately, the old FSU model was broken and resulted in Bowden being eased out, and I think the same will be true with Richt. FSU under new mgmt is pretty good! I really believe the game has passed him by…look with whom he’s surrounded himself.

That offense was not cutting edge. It was the same offense that CMR brought from FSU. Watch the film if you dont believe me. Everyone can blame Bobo and he deserves a great majority but CMR is the head man therefore he is involved on every call. He does wear a headset dosent he? The line on both sides of the ball are just weak. You cannot win if you dont own the line of scrimmage period. We got outplayed and outcoached plain and simple and it all starts from the top. Mark Richt. I will support our players forever even after they take off the red black and silver, but I dont have to support the coaching staff because they are well compensated to do something and that is win ball games. Their not there for academics, thats what the professors are there for.

An example of my above post is during the summer CMR said he understood that UGA had to have a power running game and was going to throw play action off of it. Then UGA comes out in the no huddle spread and runs draws up the middle without a blocking back. He even admitted that that was what they had been working on all preseason.

Boise State was a well coached team that knows how to play the game. The dawgs looked like a cloister, well you know.

This is not going to get better. Richt recruits players that can`t play the game and think they are on a reality tv program and the coaches can only give choak signs while the reverend collects his three million to run this circus.

I been on here many times and stated that Richt and Bobo run a scripted offense based on down and distance and field position. All the DC’s we play know that also. When your wife can predict the play, you know You’re in trouble. You see what happens when he tries something else. An 80 yard TD run. Watch the Auburn OC. You never know what that sucker is going to call. And they move the ball!!!!!!!!!!!

Richt won 2 SEC championships calling the plays himself. With the exception of 07, the offense has not been the same since. With Stafford and Moreno, all Bobo had to do was stay out of the way. Time for Richt to do what he surely knows he must and can Bobo. Otherwise, we are guaranteed another lost season and CMR is gone. I think the defense may be alright if they can get some help from the offense. The lack of a pass rush is troubling.

Tampa,

If the offense could have sustained some drives (not having to score, but at least flipping the field) the defense would have been helped out a good bit. Pin Boise down and limit the play book a little. They did it to Bobo often. The offense has a ton of work to do ,but again is this a surprise? Gone Durham, AJ,King,Ealey. So we knew that on the outside we would have issues. Then couple that with Malcome injurys, Samuels injury, Thomas suspension. I am shocked at how many UGA fans find themselves surprised at this outcome. Thats what funny. Expectations where way outta whack…

Airplane can have auto pilot, why can’t UGA develop a computer software to call offense play?

When the game starts, the offense play-calling can be randomly selected, which can really confuse your opponents more than coach Bobo. UGA can ask a few students to enter play data in the computer while the game is on-going. After a while, the computer will know what works and what doesn’t, and it will be able to call advantageous plays.

UGA can avoid playing an OC this way.

Todd Grantham had the defense dialed in for the first 5 or so series. When we blitzed and got pressure, Boise threw a pick. After that, we couldn’t keep the offense on the field long enough for the defense to catch their breath before they were putting on their helmets and going back out on the field after a pathetic 3 and out. For Richt to save his job, we all know what needs to happen, 9 and 4 or better with that 9 and 4 record including a win in Gainesville. Will that happen with Bobo calling the plays? I’d bet a paycheck tomorrow that it won’t.

September 5th, 2011
7:36 pm

UGA fans…The main problem with the state of UGA’s football team is plainly obvious….it’s that you, the fans, always buy into the hype during the offseason.

I have heard over and over about how much the defense had improved over last year. Where did that information come from? Was it just stated so many time that you believed it? Just because some of the defensive players had “another year of the 3-4 under their belt” doesn’t automatically make them better players…or better tacklers…or better coverage backs. The defense looked just as inept in the Boise St. game as it did most of last year.

The same can be said of the offensive line. Did you really think that a couple of months of practice with a new O-line coach would turn a below average unit into bull-dozers? Most wouldn’t….but somehow UGA fans just KNEW that it would.

Along the same lines, you UGA fans had CONVINCED yourself that Isiah Crowell was going to, from game one, dominate opposing defenses. I truly believe that he will be a very good running back in the SEC…but come on, he is a true freshman.

I know that this post makes me sound like a complete UGA hater…and I am not. However, UGA fans really need to be more realistic in their expectations, and quit building up the team into something that it isn’t every summer. Face it, UGA is like most of the other teams in the SEC…that is, an above average team that will compete for an SEC title every 3rd or 4th year. No shame there.

It is the fanbase who is at fault for DREAMING a season in which a team coming off a 6-7 record beats a Top 5 team. If you think just because we are Georgia a team lines up and folds then thats again a you problem. Scholraship reduction has changed the landscape of football along with all the games on TV.

Tampa,

They may have lacked in talent in several positions, but the had the one player who touched the ball 100% of time on offense who made the difference, Kellen Moore. He needs no defense, we all know his resume. What on Georgia’s resume makes us think we are entitled to win that game outisde of us saying we are Georgia? We play in the SEC? Well, truth is we were 6-7 last year and CMR new that he needed to revamp Athens and he did by kicking players out and bringing in better calibur kids as well as athletes. Again I am no a Richt apologist, but I am also not surprised that we lost. Again 9-3 was my thought. It could change but I thought loses to UT, UF and split the BSU/USCe game. I certainly could still be wrong but after 1 game I am not gonna jump on the CHICKEN LITTLE side.

How about CTG teach the D to wrap up and tackle. I think you see better tackling at a pop warner game. Lattimore will probably rush for 250 yards with tackling like that. BOOBO must have spent off season with June Jones with that run and gun offense. We are power I team. O and D line got their butts kicked like last years bowl game. The only kid that came to play was Boykin rest of the team stunk it up. I like CMR, but to be honest only coach i am keeping is Latos.

Furthermore, I am a realist. Every player who has a scholarship on our roster was wanted by D1 schools everywhere, specifically the SEC. SEC schools only heavily recruit players who they think can play SEC football. Same goes for the Big Ten coaches. And the former Big 12 coaches. Rankings mean nothing, especially early in the season. Who has money on Boise beating LSU, FLORIDA, ALABAMA, MISS ST., or S. CAROLINA right now? Talent is not the problem. Lowcountry is right, the players change, but the coaching remains the same. However, with that being said, 9-3 is unreasonable, even after one game. The team started the way it finished last year and the one before that and the one before that. Of course Boise St. beat UGA. The game film they watched over the past 10 years showed the coaches have not changed a darn thing. Grantham uses the same doughnut zone Martinez and BVG used, despite having a much more aggressive scheme. We have a DC who is more experienced with pro players, who only need to be told their assignments, not be taught how to tackle or stay low or jam receivers at the line. We have a secondary coach from the Northeast. An entrenched at the hip DL coach. Another NFL lifer at LB coach. An OL coach from UAB of all places. A running back coach who was a reciever and a WR coach who was a RB. And finally, another entrenched at the hip, no incentive to improve, adjust, or change OC where the only playbook he has read or learned from as a coach is from the HC. It’s all crossed up.

My suggestion for Richt is he better take over the play calling or here is a better idea. Bobo needs to call Eric Zeir during the game and ask him what to call because if anyone listens to the radio. Zeir knows what plays should be called

“We will win the East and go to a great bowl game because we are the most storyed program in college football history.” Are you serious, Bigredandblackdawg? It’s great to be a fan; it’s great to want your team to win, but what in the world have you been reading about/watching/listening to/attending all these years? It surely isn’t college football, as UGA is simply not in the same class as at least 12-15 other programs. Root for your team, but stop drinking the red and black Kool-Aid.

———————————————————————————————————————————————-

More like 40 games and counting. This last game after an 8 month rededication to turning it around. Its not the loss. Its the total lack of improvement or any hint that there will be improvement. What makes you think anything is going to change? Its not about the losses, its about the underacheivement. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Dawgs go 9-3 this year against this schedule, but I would bet that CMR will never challenge for an SEC title. At UGA, with its resources, that is unacceptable.

IMHO, this team needs to finish 8-4 in order to keep this staff intact, including the HC. If not, hopefully McGarity will pull the plug in early December and not anytime later. Or better yet, have CMR resign early, effective at the end of the season if this team is .500 at the midpoint. Hopefully it won’t come to that, but it looks like the trend right now. UGA has held on to CMR one season too long.

We love the Dawgs but after watcing the many different plays Boise had in store for us and the same old plays from our offense I have to believe that Coach Richt needs to get involved with the offense once again. What happen to quick pitches, screens to the tailback that Thomas Brown worked so well. What happend to any passes to tailbacks out of the backfield, any screen that would slow down the Boise rush? If our players ran Boise’s plays we win by 20.

If you fire Donnan for having winning seasons, have do you KEEP Richt for having losing seasons?? McGarity has to get rid of this clown at the end of this season.

Dan Mullen has turned Miss State into a very respectable program. Just think what he could do with all the talent that Richt has.

I personally like Richt. I really wanted him to succeed this year. But after 3 years of diminishing returns and a huge wake up call in the Liberty Bowl, he says he realizes that he has to shake things up and dedicates himself and the team to that purpose right after the Liberty Bowl (paraphrasing his words). Then in the Dome, I see NOTHING has changed. After each of the past 3 years, he says that he realizes that the Dawgs have under-performed and he’s going to correct it. Yet we see NO change. At some point, you have to realize there will be NO change. Sorry, I’m just repeating what most of us already know.

Hey Beast, I was thinking the exact same thing as I was scrolling through reading the blog. Mark Richt has divided our “proud” nation. My opinion is he needs to go. Watching the Dawgs after eight months of listening to his talk, “I know what I’m doing”, “studying cutting edge football”, then seeing the same play calling, no attempt at developing a power running game. I’m just really sick of watching this football team under his leadership, or lack of. The emptying out of the dome and the look on the faces of the fans tell me he’s in deep trouble.

And he never takes “responsibility” directly.

JBB1972

September 5th, 2011
9:36 pm

Bobo is the problem and he has been for the past 3 years, even when Willie Martinez was running the defense. Everyone was ganging up and saying how bad the defense was….which to some degree was true but the real problem then as it is today is that the offense can’t stay on the field and matriculate plays down the field. They don’t process the ball down the field in small chunks. It is big plays or nothing. This isn’t UGA/SEC style football we’ve been playing. I feel really sorry for the boys who are on offense because Bobo is ruining their college careers. Playing for someone as inept as Bobo has got to be frustrating to the boys and to their families. Personally, I don’t know how you don’t call the head coach and complain if you’re a parent because this ain’t what they sent their kids to UGA for. On the last possession I watched before we got up and left I sat beside my wife and told her every play that was going to happen and nailed it. She was impressed but if I can do it and I’m no football genius then I know Boise State’s coaches could do it. They outsmarted us from the get go. We couldn’t even get the coin toss right. You never take the ball first….NEVER. You always ask for it first in the second half. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Then we waited all summer long to see three penalties on the very first offensive drive?!! Wow! The main premise that Bobo has never seemed to understand is that having your offense on the field is defensive in nature because the other team doesn’t have the ball. Bobo does NOT get it. What really hurts is that Coach Richt can’t seem to see it either. I think he’s letting his personal relationships ruin his fantastic career. He can’t seem to take an objective third person view of what is going on on the field and take the required remedial action. CMR, please open your eyes to what this guy (Bobo) is doing to you and your career. As for the defense, I think they looked pretty darn good. A few changes and adjustments here and there and they will be fine. Todd Grantham should be applauded for making the defensive improvements. I can’t see him and Bobo being too friendly. The conversation, if it ocurrs should be one way and that would be from Grantham to Bobo. Bobo should sit and listen astutely. Personally, I can’t believe he hasn’t taken a swing at Bobo yet. Finally, do you think Central Florida or Boise State has better players?…..answer is No, of course not. So, what is the difference? It has to be the coaching. I’d say one side of the ball (defense) looks like its heading in the right direction but the other(offense) isn’t. Here’s a good article: http://dawgsbui2.com/content/bobo-and-grantham-not-same-page

No obvious adjustments, not even any mention of “failed adjustments”. Anybody whose looking for different results, you’re just setting yourself up for disappointment.

I would really like to see the Dawgs make a run at a relatively unknown “Joey Jones” at South Alabama. He has started two programs from scratch, with little to no resources with great results. He also comes with a pedigree. But most of you folks only talk of someone with a big name. I’m a tired Dawg Fan in a divided Dawg Nation, this has become no fun.

Dan Mullen would also be a good hire, as would Jon Gruden.

Butch Davis? You kiddin?

Kirby “not so” Smart? Dont think so. Had his chance to come home as defensive coordinator. He can stay at Bama and take over when Saban leaves.

Like I said; still not sure we need to fire CMR. Lets see what happens over the next few weeks. If there is not significant improvement, then he needs to go.

What puzzled me the most this year was how excited everyone was over of our recruiting class. We always have good recruiting classes.

I said it all of last year, and I will continue to say it now. In 2010 I said, “If Richt doesn’t fire Bobo, or at least demote him and take over the play calling, 2011 will be he last as the head ball coach at UGA. What did he do to Bobo after 2010….nothing!

I agree about Bobo. But what’s depressing is that Richt stands by and let’s this happen. Richt has to hear the play calls on his headset so essentially he signs off on whatever Bobo calls and does nothing about it. We were much more successful in the early years when Richt called his own plays. I don’t think he has the stomach to fire Bobo because Bobo has 6 kids at home and doesn’t want him to lose his job. But this is a business and you have to do what’s best for the program, even if they are tough choices.

I will have to disagree with you about the defense though. I don’t think Grantham had a clue as to how and stop Boise. We had no answer for their passing game. Moore ate us up with simple dump offs over the middle. We never did anything to stop it. I didn’t see any difference from last year to be honwet with you. We couldn’t tackle, we couldn’t pressure the QB, I didn’t see anything to get excited about.

It’s going to be a long season I’m afraid. We just have to tough it out and pray Adams and McGarity do something about it at the end of the season.

Some people act as if UGA fans are maniacs. Compared to Iowa State or Kansas, maybe. We are after all a football school in the SEC. However, among SEC schools, Uga fans and the university are the most forgiving in the SEC. We gave Goff 7 years. Donnan got 5 years and he couldn’t beat GT! If CMR had continued with 9 and 10 win years with the occasional 7 or 8 win year without an SEC title, he could keep his job forever. Some would complain, but he wouldn’t be let go. Can you say that about Bama? LSU? AU? UF? I don’t think so.

The point is, CMR has UGA playing at a Ray Goff level the past 2+ years with no hint of improvement. He is in the 11th year of his tenure and the program is in bad shape. He has nobody to blame but himself. Its been his program. There is a performance requirement for this job.

Hear’s my game plan for Boise State. We are going to start Richard Samuel who did nothing but SUCK in 2009. On first down, I’m going to make Aaron Murray stand in the pocket like a statue, and throw a very low percentage bomb 50 yards down the field. On second down, I’m going to run Richard Samuel right up the gut since he is really good at hitting the hole hard and falling backwards. Now, on third and 9, I’m going to make Murray stand in pocket again, and either get sacked or throw another bomb.

Yeah, that’s the ticket to wiinning.

The no-huddle Georgia threw out there is one that offers up a ‘Show Me’ to the defensive alignment. It works if you don’t believe what you’re shown. Some programs check off twice after the call comes in from the sidelines. Afterall, you get a lot of clock to work with. It’s not fail-proof, but I liked it when Tennessee used it a few years back…

We wanted a more agressive Richt and that we got with the hurry up offense. We wanted a more daring Richt and that is what we got with going for it on fourth down. There were numerous flashes of Richt during his first year in this game. Lots of reasons to be hopeful. Its funny listening to the Richt haters who have such a short memory. Cry all you like Richt will not be fired this year or the next 10 years. Richt is a great coach, fallen on hard times, will get back up again, and we saw the beginnings in game one with our team wrought with injuries, without much depth–but in the game til near the end against one of the most explosive offenses of the past 10 years.

I love how the UGA fans love to disparage Tech fans no matter what. Hate to tell you but there are Tech fans that are every bit as passionate, probably even more, and you can hate on us all you want. It was really sad to see all the “fans” leaving the game early the other night and it doesn’t speak well for you. What you make in volume, you lose in passion, because you cut and run when the going gets tough. It is so easy to sit and go “Woof Woof” when everything is going right but most of you just get out of Dodge when the going gets tough. Being a fan doesn’t just mean being there when you think it is the thing to do, and a lot of you showed that the other night.

Mobile,
I hate to see it. Something doesn’t appear right with Richt, in my opinion. I saw last year (early) that Meyer did not have the same drive. He even looked physically ill a few different games while on the sidelines. He said all the right things about getting things fixed after the season, but it still didn’t feel right. I was somewhat relieved when he did step aside because you just knew he needed to get away. I see some of the same type of signs in Richt. Way too non-chalant for the job he’s in.

Settle down folks.

The defense didn’t give up 1 (One) 20+ play against Kellen Moore. That’s a BIG improvement.

The defense held Kellen Moore to a 33% conversion rate on 3rd downs (4 out of 12) was 0-5 in 1st half, had 3 big stops in 2nd half when we were behind by only 2 scores.

The defense forced a turnover.

Offense did some good things. Bobo’s guys scored 3 td’s against a top 5 scoring defense. Charles looked good. Crowell showed promise. Mitchell looked great. Boykin looked great. I expect to see Boykin & Smith on offense, you don’t want to show everything against Boise. SEC is all that matters. Look for Mitchell, Charles, Boykin, Crowell, and Smith to EXPLODE the scoreboard on South Carolina. Murray protected the ball well and so did Crowell & Samuel–probably hurt productivity by worrying about it so much. Murray made great reads, overthrew a few times (better than underthrows) potential td’s to Wooten, and had a bunch of inexplicable drops–Murray also hit some guys in stride for big TD’s. All easily corrected. Have some faith. Wait until the 1st SEC loss happens. Chill.

Bottom line, this loss changed nothing. You can still win the East, the SEC, and the National Championship.

The rankings in AP Poll didn’t change either, still a top 20 ranked team.

Boise was just a better team. They’ve been a better team the last few yrs. Surprise! Sprinkle Boykins a little more on offense, Get Crowell the ball some more coming out the back field, let Murray use his legs a little more and use the fullback more for blocking and the offense can be pretty good.(with some better play calling). The defense can be good but they must put more pressure on qb. I doubt they will face a better offense the rest of the year. They weren’t going to win the National Championship so all the realistic goals the dogs had still exists. Who on here really expected this to be a championship season?

Georgia wont win unless they get rid of Mike Bobo’s predictable play calling. All this so called speed and talent we have here doesn’t mean anything if we cant compete. I really think Todd Grantham’s defensive scheme is overrated, no pressure on Kellen Moore whatsoever. We really need a short passing game on the offensive side of the ball. Richard Samuel dont look good at tailback either, he trips up too much when he crosses the line of scrimmage. Run Isiah Crowell in a toss sweep or dump a short pass to him in the flat to utilize is speed in the open field. We just have to work on our basic fundamentals blocking, tackling,and catching the football. Its a long season but something needs to be done immediately or it will be a WHOLE lot of changes in Athens!!!!

The d-line did a good job on Boise’s top runner Martin, he’s a man, he punished nearly every ranked team he’s gone up against. But our d-line held that guy to 2.4 yards a carry. AWESOME! Geathers & Jenkins drew double teams, and LB’s got a lot of stats CRob & Jarvis. The defensive gameplan was make Boise earn every yard, and we succeeded. Boise got impatient in the red zone and threw a pick. Held them to 14 in 1st half, hurry up did seem to run our guys out of gas as we gave up 21 in 2nd half. And if you blitz, Moore is 66% accurate on blitzes, and he burns you with BIG plays. We had the right plan, and our defense executed the plan well for the most part. Red zone defense needs improvement, otherwise, it was a stellar improvement.

FYI, cutting capacity by 9000 seats might cost is $450,000/game, or 2.5 million a year.

Do you think modern facilities/offices would help us recruit better, therefore get better players, therefore perform better, and therefore make more money elsewhere (merchandising, TV, etc.)? Which might help us fund the expansion to 55,000 in 2002?

Why hasn’t anyone addressed the strength program in all of this? all these writers spent all off-season singing its praises, and it appeared to be an abyssmal failure. I mean, all those players cramping indoors? There is no excuse for that, and Boise certainly did not seem to be cramping. The players looked fat and doughy, stiff and most of them kinda slow. This is far from an improvement, actually a huge step backwards. These writers now need to tell the truth about that aspect with as much vigor as they praised it during the off-season, particullarly when they had no idea what joe T was doing. Talk about shoddy journalism.

Those “rugby-style punts’ only work if the other team lets the punter take all day without even a hint of pressure. They also give the coverage extra time to get downfield. Our coaches did not seem to comprehend any of this. Talk about scary. Of course, it may just be that they are following our coaching philosophy of not making any adjustments during a game. Foe example, if two starting linebackers get hurt and you have no depth at that position, you might decide to go to a 4-3 for a few plays. Probably too complicated for our players. Pitiful. Or maybe you could put your 240 pound tailback, who tiptoes up to the line because he might get hurt if he ran in there full speed ahead, back at linebacker since he obviously can’t play tailback. Instead, we simply say he will be the starter at tailback this week. We are in deep doo doo.

Whether Richt makes it to 2012 or not, I will cut off my donation and end my season ticket run of ten straight seasons unless Mike Bobo is gone after this season. UGA grad or not, he is a JOKE as an offensive coordinator, especially when in pressure situations. One more thing Bill failed to mention. Down 35-21 and a 4th and three, why did Richt or Bobo not call a time out and plan a play, especially with two timeouts left and 6 minutes to go? I think Mark Richt is burned out, and I predict he will NOT return in 2012 regardless of how the season ends (which I predict will be an 8-4 finish with at least one upset loss).

uga coaches probably watched the game film of the Nevada game. Nevada spread the field and ran up the middle.

what they missed is that Byron Hout, who you all love to tease, stuffs the run as good as any linebacker in the country and Billy win and Chase Baker are very good in the middle when the have a linebacker that has to be accounted for.

Boise played very clean not many flags.. and other than the first uga drive uga was okay. First games are tough though. Things always happen that will be cleaned up. Dont worry atleast your team will get better and the rest of the country will act like Boise State does not hold practices for the rest of the year.

Richter must go right away. He does NOT have the skills set we need to have UGA win a lot of football games. The boys need more than playing skills; a lot of them need basic LIFE skills. They’re not getting that at UGA; hence the arrests for DUI, armed robbery, kidnapping, etc…..Yes, they are partly responsible. If they are going to give free rides to illiterate minorities just to play football, then they have an obligation to ensure their new “protege” makes sound decisions at least at a base level! Murder? WRONG! ARMED ROBBERY? WRONG!!!Perhaps drug dealing? No? WRONG!!!
The mindset at the upper levels must be changed; that’ll eventually trickle down to where it belongs; Head Coach Richter.

CMR was out coached bruh. The penalties, lack of discipline, lack of conditioning ( calling a time out to rest the defense) during Boise State hurry up offense. Throwing the ball on first and ten and running the power I on second and ten. Who does that? Bobo should know by now that his offense is the most predictable in the SEC. I was thinking that the freshman dream team would come out and run all over Boise State but that obviously didn’t happen. One thing for sure bruh the video game designer that consulted on the atrocious power ranger uniforms is laughing all the way to the bank. CMR has flatlined, we need a fresh coach to match our kids talent.

Christian Robinson and the other Bulldogs, such as Brandon Boykin should have long-since, all of them, had their privledges revoked to post comments on to Twitter. Facebook. Any other Internet or Cell Phone texts. Imagine sending a dare post from an UGA football player to the head coach of the team you are playing a few days later, when said coach has 2 Bear Bryant Top Collegiate Coach in America Awards, daring him to kick the ball to the UGA player, by the UGA player, himself in open view of everyone – and directly to the cell phone of their said head coach – a guy many would like to see here making the 3 and a half million total compensation Mark Richt doesn’t earn with his “coaching staff.”

Until you can show that your university can even come close to NCAA compliance, I would not come onto another teams blog, and put them down. Last week two more of your compliant athletes were suspended or was it three, for accepting illegal benfits. Fix your own home before you critisize somebody elses. Your coach is not a lot better off than ours becuase he can’t even insure his players are compliant with simple rules about accepting gifts and money after tatoogate, no less.

The dawgs had their chance to beat the Gators, but what do they do—get beat by our punter in spite of the “choke sign” by your classy DC.

The dawgs will be in complete disarray by the time they get to Jax. Even one of your own Davis Pollick was impressed with Gators under Muschamp. After opening win he said the Gators looked awfully good but didn’t know if they could beat LSU or Bama. But he knew they could beat Auburn and Georgia.

When ya’ll leave the Carolina game in the 3rd quarter, you will have time to get home and watch a well-coached team under Muschamp. These are not the same Gators you should have beat last year.
On second thought, don’t watch the game because you will be more upset than when you got home to see a fast, physical and well coached team. This is the type of team you had hoped for, but as usual, Richt turned the “dream” team into a night mare.

I’ve lost all hope in Bobo. I’ve also lost 95% of my hope in Richt to do what needs to be done: Demote Bobo back to QB coach & hire a REAL Offensive coordinator. I will give Richt credit for going out & hiring a new D-cord year before last (even if his hand was forced) although it doesn’t appear that his hire was that good of one — but at least he took a chance. However, keeping Bobo as O-cord & promoting a video guy to strength & conditioning for a top-5 program is mindboggling. UGA is one of the most profitable programs in the country — there should be nothing but top-notch coaches & trainers in the program, so anything less is un-acceptable. Can’t believe RIcht had every opportunity to get things on the right track & chose not to do what was needed — getting mad just thinking about it!!!

Boise has a small fanbase with a stadium that seats around 40,000/ UGA 92000 seat stadium
UGA ranks #2 in money. Boise ranks near 90 something
UGA has top facilities. Boise has high school facilities
UGA has 4 and 5 star recruits. Boise has 1 and 2 star recruits
The state of Georgia ranks in the top 5 in high school recruiting every year. Idaho ranks nowhere

It’s not just one game people. This has been the look of a UGA team for a while now. Confused, inept, unprepared, etc. and they do it with an average recruiting class ranked 8 over the past 5 years.

The defense is not the problem and never was the problem. The problem is on offense. Period. The offense goes through TOO many 3 and outs willingly and racks up too many penalties. This forces the defense to play too any snaps and become even more vanilla in their scheme. This is why the Defense played that big doughnut hole zone, practically never blitz, and was gassed by the start of the second half. There is no running game and never has been one in 10 years. Yes, I said that. If a great player doesn’t break off a big run on his own, then he is toast in this finesse scheme. CMR is just like Paul Hewitt: He needs, no better yet requires, extraordinary talent in order to win. That way, there isn’t much “coaching up” involved. Contrast that with Saban or Meyer. They are 2 deep with great players at every position, but they are cut no slack whatsoever and are still “coached up.”

And yes, even their great players get slammed publicly if they do not perform. lol, Saban’s only problem is deciding between two very good QB’s. Everything else is in place. If it wasn’t, you would never know until Alabama actually loses to a team worthy of being on the same field as them. You people knew it was over when we were down to Alabama 31-0 at halftime, @ Athens, then two embarrassing blowouts and the revenge chomp stomp by Meyer. The way Petrino comes back to GA, and ou tcoaches our coaches (he’s a better coach anyway, despite how I personally feel).

I am disappointed bc we look like the same team as last yr. I wonder why we hired a s&C coach that use to do video for the team. At this level we need someone with a degree in kinesiology and probably a masters degree and a CSCS at the least with experience. These guys come in to the program strong and fast and to improve on that it takes an intelligent strength coach. You have to know the science behind the lifts and the muscles. What you do with normal people wontt work on these kids who have been lifting hard and doing conditioning hard since they were14. We cramped in the second quarter at least three players and no Boise players cramped. We looked exhausted toward the end of the first. All i heard all summer was how hard every workout was and it soundsand looked like their bodies may have plateued. You cant completely exhaust your body every workout in fact some of the best strength coaches and speed coaches want their athletes leaving wanting more that way the body completely heals b/t each workout. Conditioning is different but the same concept is applied. You have to do hard days and light days which are active recovery days where you are working but recovery at the same time the intensity is a little lower. Thats my soap box S&C is still in shambles i promise yall. We also had no discipline on the field. Boise did everything on the hop from warm ups to getting on and off the field breaking the huddle not us we get three penalties on the first four plays then 12 men after half. No adjustments were made at half that worked. Our line got manhandled we played with a high pad level and you can tell who had the better strength program when a 280 center is moving a 330 NT off the ball like he is working the sled. Size of the body does not matter in football it is the size of the heart in the body.

David Granger

September 6th, 2011

Bill, you certainly make a good point that losing to a top 5 team is nothing to be ashemd of. Boise State is a good team that is well-coached, despite all the punk talk I heard about them leading up to the game. (When did my fellow Dawg fans start acting like that damn FSU scum? That bothers me about as much as how poorly the team has been playing lately.)

But this was it for me. I am ready for Coach Richt to go. It would be one thing if we had played well, and just got beaten. But Georgia was NOT ready to play (three penalties on our very first posession), we continue to make the same mistakes we’ve made over the last two or three years. We hit an 80-yard sweep early…and never run wide again? We threw long passes on first down…which is NOT a bad thing. But then we’d run off-tackle most of the time of third and long…which IS a bad thing. (And more of that “let’s try not to LOSE” crap.) Just same old, same old…

This hurts me to admit, but I hope that Georgia loses most of our remaining games. I’m afraid that…because of our sheer talent…we might pop up and upset a couple of good teams, and that might be just enough for the administration to think “Well, maybe Coach Richt has the team at least pointing in the right direction…he deserves one more year.” Which is exactly what they’ve been saying too long now.

We need new blood at the top. Coach Richt is a good man…clean-cut…says the right things and represents the university well. And he’s a good recruiter, which is probably the single most important asset for a coach. (Especially one in a talent-rich state like Georgia.) He does a good job at building a team, but just can’t take the team he’s built and use it to its best advantage. (To borrow a comparison from history, he’s like General McClellan. Did a great job building the Army of the Potomac…just couldn’t use it worth a damn.)

Thank you for what you’ve done at Georgia, Coach…and good luck elsewhere.

It does matter

I don’t think it was a problem with the defense. It was a total ineptness by the offense. It’s tough on your defense when the offense goes three and out and hits one big play on offense the whole first half. Kudos to Boise’s coaches, They had to know that our defense was about gassed from it and decided to come out after halftime with the no huddle to finish them off. That’s what you call adjustments which our coaching staff doesn’t seem to be able to make.

I wouldn’t be surprised with UGA finding every way possible to get a buck. UGA’s got more money than god and they’ll still get more!

Hooty Hoot. Over here. Sorry if my actual real life with that family holiday and all that interfered with jumping on the blog quicker.

Looked for a couple of gaps to comments this morning, but good lerdy. A blog comes out and its 8 pages in 3 hours. Its not about football at this point.

I’ll check back later. Not interested in a bunch of trolls or folks looking to blame thier miserable lives on somebody else.

I wasn’t one of the idiots talking about how terrible BSU was, so I didn’t have to trash anyone to make myself feel better. Some do, I understand that.

FWIW, looking forward to each and every game left to play. As I said last week, Boise would be favored over our entire schedule, and would do quite well. We wouldn’t have to play much better to still have a very improved year. That’s the goal, improve over last year, get back in the division race, Still sure of it happening.

Anybody want to stop coach bashing long enough to talk football?

What do we need to do this week to win the game?

Outside of the predictable TROLL responses of replace Bobo and Richt and Grantham, here is my take:

No more shotgun.
SC DE’s too fast for our OL.
Max protect with 1, 2 or 3 TE’s.
Run all I formation with QB under center, play action and toss sweeps and runs up the middle.
Play nickel all game.
Don’t play a walkon or a tru freshman LB, play an extra DB who has experience kinda like the old Rover slot.

That’s all I got. I still expect us to lose.

I say 28-20 SC

Very disappointed….all I can say is I am very confused. Everyone has been saying that we had no running game, and that boisie state was a fun and gun offense that will blast you all over the field if you let them ( which they did )…. I just do not understand the play calling from the get go..Why did we play right in to their game plan. You think we have no running game we step up and establish one like a big bad sec team should. We then control the tempo of the game and the clock. Do not give them the chance to throw at will. When did we become a spread no huddle attack. We have no established receivers but yet we depend on this to bring glory back to uga. We have a very un-healthy thin offensive line but then we add the pressure of no huddle..i don’t get it. Then this not only stop’s the clock it kills our field position. Stop me if I am wrong but I believe boise never started any of their drives deeper than the 35 yard line…the defense never had a chance to get off the field and catch their breath. 3 and out, 3 and out. Why did we come out of the locker room so late before the start of the second half. There was zero warm up time for the players. That is why they were so flat to start the second half. These are all things I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND!!! But most of all 3rd and 16 and we run a freakin DRAW!!!!!!!!!!!! Grrrugh! i mean really BOOBOO you can only ride on that pass to cory allen at grant field for so long!

ON defense , figure out the LB rotation, hope we don’t lose any more. I still think our defense will be good enough to beat most of our schedule.

ON offense, scrap that Mickey Mouse no huddle hurry up. All we did was screw up our own guys. We aren’t built for it. Get 2 more recruiting classes of Olinemen up to speed, then try that again. But this year, put Murray under center, run some guys in motion, and insist on him doing what he was supposed to have learned in his 3rd year. Complete some passes. Run the ball as best we can. That has nowhere to go but up.

Bill -

I couldn’t agree more with your assessment of Mike Bobo’s playing calling performance. When I heard Monty Kiffen say a few years ago, he didn’t need much time to scheme against Bobo’s offense, that should have been an indication to Richt something wasn’t right. Everyone knows Murray is going to look to Orson Charles for a majority of throws. Why not put Artie Lynch in the game in a dual TE set and fake it to Charles and hit the Lynch over the middle. How many DBs can match up with Marlon Brown’s size? Answer: Very few… MB should be getting 6-8 balls thrown to him every game. Crowell has great hands, how about throwing him a screen pass, so he can get out into space. How about a toss sweep to our 520 lb. backfield. All Samuel has to do is follow Figgins for 10 yards. This is the most brain dead offensive game planning I’ve ever seen out of a UGA football team. Don’t even get me started with the OL… that was pathetic!

I hate to say it, but I tried to tell all you delusional fans what was going to happen. I did not figure on the team playing that badly however. Bottom line… Offensive line is horrible = NO RUNNING GAME which equals NO PASS PROTECTION which equals NO PASSING GAME which equals a QB that will not survive the season. I have said it many times and been shot down, but I say again… consider 7-5 and another minor bowl a great season. The pups have worlds of talent, just no one to coach that talent up.

The Bulldogs have a gap in the offensive coordinator department and a head coach that can’t keep his teams head in the game. No huddle with young QB, penalties, penalties, penalties, time outs wasted, long passes on short 3rd downs this is a sound way to lose football games and even worse it is very predictable. Boise was smart enough to realize that a fast defense can be beat with short passes and they have perhaps the best QB in the country. We only pass on first down after we have lost the game, no huddle with a young QB brilliant, no relief receiver or screen pass how about max protect come on BoBo, I can sit on the couch and know what play is coming next. This has progressively gotten worse the last few seasons, this is not GA football. We should during this season support the team, but it is time for a change on the sideline. We can handle not winning against a better team, but we have got to play hard, fast,and smart and this weekend is another example of not playing smart being the main factor for us losing. Boise is a good team but we are not near as bad as we looked and honestly we could have made it a game if the play calls on offense made any sense. UNACCEPTABLE.

I swear to God our players must get tutorials on cliched coachspeak. “Its all about the guys in the lockerroom. We’re just taking it week by week. Blah, blah, blah.” Somebody put a muzzle on these underachievers until they learn how to win some damn football games that matter. I have never seen a bigger group of media jaw flappers in my life. All they did all off season was talk and they are STILL freaking talking. If our rushing yards equaled the amount of words that these big mouths use in interviews we’d have won 5 national championships in a row. Good grief.

Yes, I just went there. The players need to be held accountable too. They aren’t children. They are grown men and they need to learn to keep their mouths shut and do their talking on the field. Let’s spend a little more time learning the fundamentals of the game of football that jawing away on Twitter fellas.

Hey, UGA is #1 at something. They are the first SEC team to lose to Boise State. Congrats Dogs! Maybe they can get a trophy with a big golden potato on top and a big number one etched in it. What is really hard to believe is how does a line weighing on the average forty pounds more than their opponents get their heads handed to them? It defies logic.

After reading the post game comments, I’m convinced nature will take it course. Richt’s stubborness and blind loyalty to Bobo will most assuredly put the nail in the coffin at season’s end. The no huddle was an abysmal failure that left our offensive players rushed and confused, and led to the ultimate demise of the defense, so of course we’re gonna stick with it. Did you notice how utterly lost our team looked in the time lapse for Bobo to call the play from the booth, have it relayed to the sideline, and then to Murray, and finally to everybody else? It was like everybody on the team was looking to the sideline and asking Ok coach, what now? No huddle and pass block…that’s the ticket alright…the ticket outta Athens.

The biggest problem that no one at the UGA football program notices —-is ———-they never have a solid running game————-how Richt played politics with the administration all these years without getting that nailed down is beyond me. The one thing Richt did do is win 2 SEC championships—–in 11 years—-if he had won another in the last 2 years –he probably would be much more accepted at the point. So, the bottom line is—–you must win the championship game at least once every 4 years————and beat Tech at the same time.. If you can get that done—-you are ok in my book as a GA fan. So ——-IF Richt won the SEC championship game this year –he would be in good standing. Other wise, it might be time for him to reconsider his future.

Richt is a good guy, but it’s a must-win this weekend and in Jax, too, as previously noted. I was ready for him to be gone at the end of last season, but then fell into the recruiting/next year hope cycle (trap?) one more time. Barring a convincing turnaround this year (i.e. 10 wins), we need to make Dan Mullen an offer he can’t refuse.

Sorry, but no one can convince me that either Boise or the USC Lamecrocks are that good. Georgia is a team with some extremely talented players BUT it is also bad when it comes to translating talent into good play. In fairness, I really don’t know who to blame for this. Perhaps it is a matter of having talent but no chemistry and no matter what coaches do, they can’t get basic football instruction through heads full of egos and dreadlocks. But, also, perhaps it is because the players truly want to follow good plans, however they just don’t have the proper leadership….I believe it is the latter rather than the former.

“Max protect with 1, 2 or 3 TE’s.”

Bobo is an easy scapegoat but really at this point, some of the “fire” crowd should list what are his actual viable options.

As I posted this summer and was blasted for it, he is working with few possible answers with which to work.

I agree with DawginLex about the TEs and predicted this would most likely become a result of the loss of all the returning RBs and the missing of significant practice reps by both Samuel\Crowell this fall. Got called a hater by the board police for that. I would like to claim to be brilliant for predicting such but in reality, it was so obvious and simple that I will go on.

And to move on, Bobo is in a box because his running game is limited and the WR corp showed that they were indeed heavily dependent on the attention to AJ Green to get open.

So what are Bobo’s options? Real options, please, none of the pie in the sky ones from this summer.

PS. Bobo doesn’t get a complete pass as his recruiting problems lead to the current position.

This junk will go on forever. The current UGA regime is stale and needs more than just a new coat of paint. Fire them all. Enough is enough.

A great NEW UGA coach will inherit the core UGA players next year and if they do it right, he will get some JUCO kids in Feb,. 2012 that play O line and build some depth. The current O line coach Friend is a pal of Bobo and it was Bobo that told CMR about him being available when no other well known O line coach wanted the UGA job. Now, we know why. Same is true of D coach Chavez at LSU and Ellis at SC ……………they took a pass to work with CMR. NOw, we know why. He IS NOT RESPECTED by his peers.

UGA is being adversely impacted by CMR and we need a change. This year will be/could easily be a 4-8 thing folks. Fasten your seat belts.
