Same old problems plague Dogs in loss to Spartans

Brandon Boykin had a career day against Michigan State — but it wasn't enough. (Associated Press)

Mark Richt’s Bulldogs didn’t have to find any new ways to lose in the Outback Bowl — instead, they simply let lots of familiar problems resurface in suffering another second-half collapse and dropping a three-overtime battle with Michigan State.

Again, the Dogs wasted a superlative first-half defensive effort by giving the opponent a couple of cheap touchdowns thanks to turnovers by an erratic Aaron Murray, whose two interceptions put the Spartans back in the ball game.

Again, Georgia’s almost complete lack of a running game made the Dog’ offense one-dimensional. And was anyone at all surprised when Isaiah Crowell, reduced to a backup role, limped off the field after a handful of runs?

Again, placekicker Blair Walsh, once one of the nation’s premier specialists, proved himself more a liability than a weapon and ended up costing Georgia the game by missing two kicks in OT.

And again, playcaller Mike Bobo seemed incapable of adjusting to the realities of what was happening on the field and stubbornly stuck with what wasn’t working.

With the middle of the Spartan’s defensive line as solid as a brick wall, Bobo continually called for runs up the middle — often with delays that turned into tackles for loss since State was getting into the Georgia backfield so quickly. Early on, Georgia was able to have some running success on the outside, but once MSU adjusted to stop that, the Dogs basically were no threat on the ground.

To top it all off, with the Spartans continually blitzing from the corner, Bobo insisted on calling slow-developing downfield passing plays, an all too familiar scenario made even worse by Murray’s poor decision-making when pressured and Georgia’s tight ends being a nonfactor in the game.

Overall, Georgia relied too much on its big-play capability and never was able to really sustain anything offensively against the talented Spartans defense.

Typical of the day was what happened with a little over 3 and a half minutes left in regulation. Needing a first down or two to kill the clock and ice a victory, the Dogs went ultra-conservative and ultra-predictable — two hallmarks of Bobo’s career as a playcaller — by trying again in vain to run Richard Samuel up the middle.

It surprised no one, and the fact that it didn’t work didn’t surprise anyone, either.

And then the banged-up Georgia defense, which had played well most of the day, looked gassed on the Spartans’ last drive of regulation, getting no pressure on MSU QB Kirk Cousins, who cooly passed his team down the field to send it into overtime.

Just think how ugly things might have gotten had Brandon Boykin not played the game of his life in his farewell performance as a Georgia Bulldog, nailing a Spartan receiver for a safety, scoring on a thrilling 92-yard punt return that saw him reversing direction and weaving his way all over the field, and then moving over to offense to catch a touchdown pass for his third different score of the day.

He’ll be missed big-time.

So two disappointing losses bookended a Georgia season that started out 0-2.

Sure, the 10 wins between those four losses and an SEC East title is a big improvement over last season.

But, looking ahead, even though Georgia returns a lot of talent and will have another favorable schedule next year, if the problems that continually reared their head this season aren’t addressed, it’s going to be tough for Richt’s program to take the next step forward.

Typical Richt – defense handed him the game on a silver platter in OT, but he was too timid to try to win. Instead, Richt opts to put it all on shoulders of a kicker who has struggled all year to make a long fg. Yeah, Richt’s a real nice guy & gutless too.

Typical….need 1 first down up by 7 to win the game and run up the middle and leave 2 minutes for MSU to score to tie it. No killer instinct by the offense. Played not to lose instead of to win like the premier teams do and this is what you get. Makes me sick at my stomach. Please demote Bobo to QB coach only and bring in someone with an imagination to call the offense.

Richt was just as bad as BOBO. Run, qb take a knee to set up a 42 yard field goal with a inconsistent kicker, that sounds like a great plan to win the game in ot. We will never win a title with Richt and Murray at UGA. Murray is just not ever gonna be great. He always makes sure the other team gets back in the game. Richt always coaches to try not to lose, never to try to win.

Bobo continues his conservative play calling. Instead of playing to win the game with 3 minutes left, he runs up the middle 3 times in a row. Is this Richt or Bobo making these calls? First down and you most likely win. However, as usual, we give it back to the other team. My sons pee wee coach would call a better game.

“Richt & Murray are 0-9 vs. top 20 ranked teams.”

But AJC and all of Dawg Nation will be talking about the how great UGA is come Fall after they win 9 or 10 games with their cake schedule, only to feel exactly the way they do now after they get slaughtered to whichever superior SEC West team in the SECCG and possibly lose next year’s bowl game.

Lather/Rinse/Repeat…how many years now have we heard that this team is rebuilding? UGA is a good team. Not a great team. If they want to get better they need to play better teams. That means teams like LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida (when they were good), every year. Not 1 great team. not 2, they need to be playing 4, 5, 6 great teams every year. Not “let’s play mediocre teams to get to the SECCG only to expose ourselves as not even a little bit close to that elite level.”

Is Crowell really that fragile? Didn’t he ever get hit in high school? Bobo has got to be dismissed. When a bomb works, he looks like he knows what he is doing. But the rest of the time, just about any high school coach in America would be more of an asset than Bobo. And Murray has talent but he still needs a lot of coaching. We will never win the SEC with Bobo. His play calling has to drive Grantham nuts.

Let’s lower the expectations. The Dawgs are a 2nd tier program with the current coaching staff. That’s a hard pill to swallow, but it’s a fact. We were outcoached in the 2nd half and Murray was the best player for Michigan State in the 3rd quarter. I’m ready for the LeMay experiment, but CMR is loyal to a fault. I’m not going to pile on Walsh, what a terrible way to end a career. Bobo is simply, Bobo. I’ll let the Tech and Bama fans tell us about Bobo. Anyways, still love my Dawgs.

Shutdown defense in the first halves of both the SECCG and the OB. The second half against LSU we surrender 35 points. In the OB’s second half we surrender 33 points. WOW! guess that is a pattern not an abberation (SC game gift-wrapped as well).

Not saying it’s all on the defense as Murray’s pick 6s in big games are givens. Can’t run the ball, can’t hit a field goal-pitiful.

I didn’t think it was possible to score 3 points in 3 OTs.

Just bad.

Did I miss it or am I right, Orson Charles did not have a ball thrown to him? The best one half team in the country. When the game moves to a half and you know it will the Dawgs will be the best in America. Already have it sewn up. One half wonders, what the h3ll I enjoyed the year at least it’s over. Remember we still have the Braves.

I only hope that next year Coach Richt goes with the best player for their respective position and not for the player who’s been there the longest, or who know the offense the best (Aaron Murray). After two interceptions and all the kicks that Walsh has missed this season, why is there such a sense of loyalty; let’s just go with who can win the game.

Richt’s checklist for 2012 season:

1. When you have a play caller like Mike Bobo, you have to take the points with a field goal in the 1st quarter. If he had done this, we would have won the game in regulation. You have to learn when and how to be aggressive.

2. Find another offensive coordinator or call the plays yourself. Bobo is too stubborn to learn how to be an effective play caller.

3. Another reason to find another offensive coordinator: There is an obvious difference between how well our defense is coached as compared to the offense. There are still too many missed assignments on offense.

4. Recruit and develop more agile offensive lineman. Bigger does not automatically mean better.

5. Hire a running back coach who was actually….now get this….a running back when he played.

6. Open up the quarterback competition to give Mason and LaMay a chance to start. Murray does not have the ‘it” factor. As Skip Bayless would say: “He has the choke gene”.

It will be easy to think of more later.

A sickening and disgusting game today…….

Bill,

Love your articles but this game is why I do not understand why anybody wants to keep Richt. Sure he won 10 games this year, but against who? This team has suffered from lack of discipline and coaching on at least one side of the ball since about 2005 in my opinion. Richt may be a nice guy and get great recruits, but that seldom turns in to magic on the field. Todd Grantham was the reason Georgia was even remotely competitive this year. Bobo, or Bozo as I like to call him, is a disgrace of an OC. He uses an archaic offense that fools nobody and he poorly executes it to boot. Also you would think that with the issues Georgia has had on special teams for the past several years, Richt would get it through his thick skull that UGA needs a special team coordinator. I just do not understand Richt’s thought process on how evaluates his team. Oh well I guess we’ll be back to the same mediocrity until Richt either quits or retires. It’s a true shame that with all the talent this state has, that its top tier school hasn’t won a national championship since 1980. Pathetic really.

This article is an excellent analysis of the game and the problems that keep UGA from reaching its potential.

Did Orson Charles go to the NFL before the game. I never saw him even thrown to the whole game. Why we cannot let Aaron through short passes other than bubble screens is a mystery to me. And I once coached a national championship football team.

Yep, its one thing to get outcoached or outplayed, but to continue making the same mistakes in play calling, have bad decision turnovers, not have a “play all out to win” mindset, not play 4-5 qtrs and to not make decisions around your weaknesses (no money field goal kicker/running game) is just unexcusable.

The big concern is that the coaching staff doesn’t seem to be learning from past history. The Bulldogs have become so predictable my son and I predicted everything that was going to happen in the game before they even ran the play. First, handing off in the backfield on 4th and goal from the one yard line — it never works. The play takes too long to develop with the box stacked and allows penetration. Second, not trying to make first downs with over two minutes left in the game — I knew they were going to tie the game, we left too much time on the clock. Lastly, kicking a field goal on third down — I knew we would miss the kick. You don’t play not to lose, you play to win. Also, have we taken blocked kick attempts completely out of the play book — I saw numerous opportunities to block kicks and punts. It is so frustrating to lose because of the coaching decisions when you can tell your team is the better team on the field talent wise.

Dawgs know this, but with their weak minds, they tend to forget, so here’s a reminder:

Georgia Tech is a very highly ranked academic school that has a football team. Its alumni and fans have real lives and careers that don’t depend on the football team for their happiness.

Georgia, on the other hand, is basically a sell-your-soul-to-the-devil football factory that also gives diplomas – worthless as they are. They have unholy coaches like Mark Richt who have no scruples or ethics, who recruit morons who barely got through high school, and collect huge paychecks whether they win or not.

Now, can you remember all that?

To win in the SEC and beat good opponents outside the conference it takes: #1 Great athletes #2 Good coaching #3 A tough mind-set ….. which is the intangible attribute that makes all the difference in tough games. Where does this “toughness” come from? From their coach. Richt’s penchant for getting overly conservative is not a virtue; it’s non-aggression in a sport that requires the opposite. Georgia would be a better fit for the ACC.

The athletic history of UGA is full of so many sordid, sleazy incidents – dating back to Vince Dooley and continuing through Mark Richt – that it’s impossible to overlook. The school has come to stand for drunkenness and lawlessness, coddling of illiterate low-class athletes who should never have been admitted to college, and rampant cheating by coaches.

UGA and Mark Richt are an affront and an embarrassment to all decent people in this state.

It was an embarrassment how Georgia let MSU back into the ball game. But what was the very worst was how the kicker lost the game TWICE, once by blowing the winning FG in the 1st OT and the getting blocked in the 3rd OT. MSU shouldn’t have ever been in this game but GA found ways to give the game away. It was a hard fought game that should have been theirs. I hope that out of all the high school kickers there are in the state of Georgia that the Bulldogs came recruit and sign at least one for next year. To lose a game like that is not only a shame but was totally unnecessary!!!!!!

Such an incredible lack of offensive creativity. That whole series in OT was just aweful. Walsh has missed near 50% of his attempts this year. How can you explain putting it on him to win the game. You have to play for first downs. Georgia had this game won several times and Bobo and his pathetic play calling and strategy cost them the game. Richt should have to answer for it. But, he and McGarity “Love” each other. What a bunch of crap.

Sorry to say, my pre-game prediction was dead on. They didn’t play a complete game, Crowell didn’t last but a few plays and they played not to lose toward the end of the game. Michigan State had a less talented but tougher, well conditioned team which performed better as the game progressed. At the end, Georgia was beaten and tired. So we were short some players? … it didn’t seem to bother Auburn any in the Peach Bowl. It also seems the “whiter” the team the harder it is for Georgia to beat them. (OK that’s a joke)

CMR is ultimately responsible for the play calling. With that fancy noise cancelling Bose headset CMR wears, I know he can hear exactly what play is called. If CMR was not in the same mindset as Bobo, he would override the play call. We need some aggressive play calling. CMR finally grew a pair when he hired CTG to manage the defense. I think the best option now is to release Bobo and find a non-skirt wearing offensive coordinator to manage the offense. I feel like we are trying to be fair about the final score. Forget fair, if the other team gets the chance they will hang 40 on us! Stop being compassionate about playing the other team and step on their throats! And while we are at it, call Kevin Butler to be our special teams coach! Butler won’t put up with lackluster special teams play.

Does Murray have a secret contract that states he cannot be taken out of a game due to poor performance? UGA needs to hold off on that contract extension for Richt until he fires Bobo. Another lousy example of playing not to lose instead of playing to win. Someone needs to tell the Defense that games last 4 quarters not 2. Thank goodness for Boykin.

We never really tried to expose their outside except with DB’s running and everybody knows where it’s going. I hate to say it but the entire offensive sceme we use will never win it all. Too many opportunities for mistakes. Get big Ralph in or someone that can sceme against a def. We have the athletes and our defense will only continue to get better.

If not for loser Murray and his 2 picks, UGA would have won this game by 14. Murray threw more pick 6’s than any Q.B. in UGA history, yet all of these idiot UGA fans think he is a great Q.B. Any other head coach or competent O.C. would have benched this idiot after the pick 6, but not WonderBoy Bobo,and Richt. Then Richt shows how pathetic of a head coach he is by being loyal to his 50% kicker and not even trying to get a 1st down or a t.d in overtime, and he continues to run a running back R.S. who hasn’t played in over a month. My God, Richt is a joke, he never learns form his mistakes, and his loyalty cost games with Martinez, and now it continues to lose games with Bobo, and now R.S. McGarity, if you have any balls or leadership,you will end this mediocrity and get rid of Richt and Bobo. If you don’t do that then, you are part of the problem not part of the solution. UGA will NEVER win with Richt, Bobo, and never with Murray. He is a joke, and he has lost more games at UGA than he has won. Why would he start again next year, when he has lost 3 games by his own pathetic pick 6’s, THe guy is a loser, and so is his O.C. and head coach.

I hold Murray, the kicker, and the defense responsible for today’s loss…the defense just seemed to give up, especially in the 4th qtr. Walsh needs to go…I don’t care how great he used to be…he’s lost it…replace him! Several weeks ago when the Falcons played the Saints, my post read,in part, the Falcons didn’t “rise up”…they just laid down and let the Saints french kiss them like a mack truck…different team today, same result.

1. The best play we had all game. Throw play action or roll out pass, on first down,, Bobo most, of the time ran ball up the middle, at MSU’s strength.
2. Took Malcome, out of the game?
3. Why not throw to TE’s?
Drive with 3.5 mins, in game. Three straight runs up the middle?
Hire a new O coordinator. So what if Bobo can sign a few South GA kids. Oh yeah I forgot he is Vince Dooley’s son-in-law.
My one complaint about Grantham is why did he not blitz, up the middle more, with Jones and Ogletree?

The Christian spin on this is that there is a plan for everyone’s life, and the negative things that happen are for a pre-ordained purpose that in the long-run is always for our good. I’m not sure how this works in teams sports, but I don’t think Richt will be swearing and throwing things in the locker room.

Bill,
Thanks for saying what Chuck Dowdle, Kevin Butler, and Tony S. won’t or can’t say. We all know what the problems are, but Richt and McGarity refuse to make the hard choices. We will NEVER be better than we are right now (which isn’t very good) if we continue to put loyalty to players and coaches above putting the best players and coaches on the field each week. Conservative and non-sensical play calling has been the norm for years as has been Murray’s inability to perform in big games. I’m not optimistic at all about next season given we’ll likely still have the same starting quarterback trying to run plays called by a below average Pee Wee League OC. I think we’ll be making the same comments this time next year (if we even get to play in a Jan 2013 bowl game)without major changes at OC, without developing a killer instinct, and without putting the best players on the field.

Agreeed

January 2nd, 2012

Bobo is as eratic as Murry. His playing calling and running the same plays over and over is so typical…he is an amature and needs to be replaced now. Why is there no competition for the QB…Hutson Mason is looking at transfering…who could blame him? Definitely need to move on from Walsh…he has lost us two very clear games this year (South Carolina and Mich. St).

At least CMR did not give up a 14 point 4th qtr lead. If you ever coach Tech in another bowl game, please stay home and let one of your coordinators have control. You are not a bowl game coach.

Well, that was pathetic. The offense was flat out not prepared to play today nor has it improved at all during the year. This is not an Aaron Murray problem. This is a BoBo problem and Richt if he is involved in the offense. The same players on defense who struggled 2 years ago are now studs because of coaching. We need a similar change on the offensive side of the ball.

Please, no extension for Richt without a change at offensive coordinator. You see what happens when you bring in a good coach with this talent. The defensive’s improvement over the last 2 years is remarkable and a testament to Grantham’s coaching ability. That was an inspired defense that ran out of gas because of an inept offensive and a scared head coach.

Great effort today by the defense and Coach Grantham. It should be obvious the impact the conservative play calling by Coach Bobo has had on Georgia this year and previous seasons.
He is a great guy but I honestly believe he is over his head as an offensive coordinator and should go back to coaching quaterbacks or seek a position at another school. He is not getting it done and Coach Richt is getting his backside burned too many times.

I hope Davis and Gurley join Marshall at Georgia as it should be evident to them the need Georgia has for them and the impact they could have immediately!

I am a Georgia fan and still believe with some top running backs and a good offensive coordinator things could different next fall. Thank God Coach Grantham is the defensive coordinator at Georgia!
I really hope the juniors come back and the recruits that Georgia is going after, see the opportunity they will have at Georgia. I do think however, there are a lot of the freshmen on this team will contribute signifantly next year! Georgia is in good shape with the most of the players they have, and if the offensive line can get it together it would help.

This was definetely hard too watch a 16 point lead evaporate ! I’m stunned and really don’t know what to say?

Congradulations to the SEC teams that won their games. Coach Richt you are a good man but it’s time to be a leader and cut Coach Bobo. If Bobo would just realize that your alligance to him is costing you and Georgia a lot and he needs to step down!!

We better hope that the prospects continue to sign with Georgia and most if not all juniors will come back next year!

Let see you play as much and as hard as those boys played in the second half. I bet you would be gassed too! Its not as easy as they make it look sometimes.

While Bobo may be a big part of UGA’s problem getting rid of him will not fix it. He’s been at UGA now for nine years and we see the same year after year. Doesn’t this really point to Richt? look at Richt’s staff. Bobo is a product of Richt, he spent a year at Jacksonville State and the rest of his experience is under Richt. Our Running back coach has been nowhere else but at UGA. Our O line coach had little game experience and is being molded by CMR in the Georgia Way. All good coaches but not ready for the big time as we all have seen. No matter who UGA hires if they were to replace Bobo do you really think there would be real change. To me Richt wants to hire young coaches that he can bring up in his style. He is not going to go out and hire a proven winner that will take away his control. If Bobo has been doing the same things over and over and not produceing then Richt must be ok with it or either Bobo is doing things according to Richt’s plan. Isn’t it the head coach’s responsibility to correct his assistants to maximize production of the game plan. Besides Richt wears headset’s during the game and should be talking to Bobo about plays to run. You can’t kill the snake unless you cut off the head.

So I would consider firing Bobo and having Richt call the plays for a season and hiring a special teams coordinator in the place of Bobo. Richt couldn’t be worse than Bobo. Hell two national championships were won on Mark Richts watch as a offensive coordinator!

I don’t know how people can defend Bobo after this game. Blame it on the O-line and their lack of protection but it’s the OC that needs to work our strengths and limit our weaknesses. We tried too many long developing plays when we didn’t have the protection to do it. If it doesn’t take Bobo a season to figure this out he never will. Also, why did he try to run Carlton Thomas up the middle as well RIGHT into their All-American DT? This isn’t NCAA Football 2012.

The playcalling in OT was horrendous as well. Why instead of making the WINNING FG as easy as possible for Walsh we run to the outside with Thomas for no gain and then we give up going for the score and try to set up the FG with Murray by making him run to the middle again while LOSING yards. Then we WASTE a down trying to make it more manageable for Walsh and kick on 3rd down. The last play of the last drive was moronic of Bobo as well. It’s 3rd and 15 and he called a long-developing play-action. YOU’RE NOT FOOLING ANYONE.

Why was Richt clowning around with three minutes left in regulation. He should have been thinking about how to get a first down, and not running three straight up the middle and then punting.

I wish RIcht went back to calling the offensive plays. UGA’s best seasons came when he was the OC and I don’t understand why he stopped. Bobo just does not seem to be up to the task and if was doing a good job, you would hear about him as college head coach or NFL OC candidate.

I fear most that this season was a mirage. They lost their first 2 and final 2 games against ranked teams. I also fear next year and after will be just more 8-9 win seasons under Richt and his teams will always fall short of winning championships.They should not extend him yet.

The priority should be to lock up Grantham then wait to see how another year under Richt goes. If UGA wins the SEC East next year outright (i.e. not needing SC to lose), he will have earned the extension.

With all the NFL coaching openings, I wouldn’t be surprised to see CTG leave town. Why would he want to stick around for another season with BOZO? No matter what he does with the D, BoZo and his pee wee league schemes will cost us the game.

I coach rec league ball. I am amazed that the same plays in my pee wee league play book are in the UGA playbook. Anybody recognize 42, 43, 44, 45, and 46? Why don’t they ever run the FB? Heck, we do. It’s called 21 and 22 dive. It’s now wonder other teams have no trouble stopping the UGA running game.

Just like we don’t run the FB, we don’t throw to the TE. Why? So, there are two things opposing teams know they don’t have to prepare for.

It is very difficult to be a dawg supporter as long as I have and have to endure this crap of a coaching staff year after year. Bobo certainly lives up to his title as offensive coordinator as he is the most ” offensive” play caller in the history of GA football. Georgia football use to be something to be proud of but I can honestly say ” WE SUCK” and I for one am tired of where our program is headed and slipping into mediocrity. I really think we are stuck with an inept head coach and he has moron as a play caller. Please if we have to keep Richt, make it manatory that Bobo can no longer call plays. Love my dawgs but things have to change or we are doomed to be disappointed every season.

I knew things were going south when I saw Richt yukking it up with an M State d-lineman at about 3:30 in reg. I really think he thought the game was won. Then came the 3 Samuel runs for zero yards…maybe Bobo called those but if Richt had a pair he would have overruled and told the offense to at least try to get a first down to ice it. And then Todd’s defense just disintegrates on their last drive. And then the Walsh debacle….U-G-ly.

Something has to change. Bobo either needs to walk or hand the play calling responsibilities back to Richt. Although this season was exponentially better than last season and the one before it, it is still not good enough. UGA has too much talent to dwindle off into non-BCS bowls and play mediocre football. Fans, boosters, and I’m sure even some players realize this. Something needs to give this off season. On a lighter note, it was good to see Malcome get some decent carries in this game. The kid is a stud and can be a huge game changer next fall, IF he doesn’t hang around Crowell too much.

P.S. Why are Bama fans commenting on here? I figured they would be more worried about getting beaten by LSU…AGAIN!

Bobo was terrible...Murray is just an average qb.

January 2nd, 2012
8:16 pm

I’ve said it all year…keep Richt and get rid of Bobo (or at least demote him). He just doesn’t have that edge you need to win in the SEC. It’s clear that he does not trust A. Murray, and I can’t blame him for that. But, if he’s the qb in the game and your running game is non-existent, pass the ball. You all saw the game….same run play up the middle for no gain.

Face it, Murray is just not a great quarterback. He’s serviceable against some teams but he’s hit his peak… I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out how he has so many TD passes when he looks terrible on tape. Dawg Nation needs to start a petition to see Mason play more often just see what he’s got. He can’t be much worse that Murray.

Point Three…would someone please tell Bobo that Samuel is not a running back. He’s a blocking fullback at this point.

Watching this game today probably took a year off my life. I have never seen a coaching staff so many times play not to lose a game rather than play to win a game. How many times have we seen a Georgia team up by 14 or more points and just take their foot off the gas pedal. Would Saban, Miles, or Meyer ever do this? No. How many times have we seen Georgia up and needing a first down to win a game and run three straight plays into the gut of a defense and pray their defense can hold just one more time. I have never seen an Offensive Coord. so unimaginative and unable to make half time adjustments like Bobo. Georgia won 10 games this year against unranked opponents only because of their superior players. Richt finally made the right decision on the defensive side of the ball and the Dogs are a top 10 team in that area because of it. Lets hope he can have the guts to do it one more time and rid this team of Bobo. The talent is in Athens it just need someone to direct it.

We get pretty dang good players and then we underachieve, repeatedly, We’ll have several of our players go pro over the next year or 2 and can’t beat a Michigan State team.

What good are wins against cupcakes Bill? Ask Ohio State! They only scheduled one or two quality opponents every season. Result was high poll ranking but predictable bowl results. Dawgs played 10 patsies with 10 wins. Four halfway decent teams with four defeats. Is that progress? Not in my estimation! Fire the saint now or suffer through much more of same! :(

Mike Bobo is done. He needs to be cut loose tomorrow so that he has time to find another job around the country and we can get a new OC in here before signing deadline to meet and greet the new recruits. Gotta tell you, between execution (or lack thereof) and play-calling, this is the worst run offense in the country.

CMR has to make the move now to signal strength in the program. He can not continue the second-guessing that everyone and their brother is doing. If so, he needs to step down now and we all know that’s not going to happen with a 10-win season.

The other side of the coin is, if we don’t get some pass rush, we’re not winning against any Top 5 teams in the coming year, mark my words. you can’t rush the same 4 guys the whole game and expect to put any pressure on the QB.

The 2 INT’s just killed us…too bad it came down to Walsh’s kicking. Shouldn’t have gone to the first OT.

If the SEC West merged with the remainder of the Big 12 South ( Texas, Baylor, etc) we would then have what is truly the finest conference in the land. Its all about the money right ? SEC East is holding down the money potential for several schools. The SEC is the best money conference today but it is not the best money conference possible. The presidents of all schools know that their job is to get into the best money conference possible. Why the presidents of AL, LSU, AR and the rest of the SEC West don’t do their jobs is hard to understand. Don’t hand me the “tradition” line. That went out the window 4 years ago.

Same sort of second half snooze we’ve seen several times this season. Bizarre. We got away with it against Ole Miss and Vanderbilt, but I remember several folks on this blog pointing out that it would cost us against a good opponent. Maybe it was Bill who made that point. But if you take away the second-half snoozes, the special teams disasters, and a few pick-sixes from Murray, you’ve got a pretty serious contender in this team.

We have got to come together and demand greatness. We have the resources to be a monster program. We are a sleeping giant but the giant will only awaken when we have the right people in place in Athens. Remember Florida didn’t have a program until the 1990’s because a giant was finally awaken.

Bobo has to go. Getting rid of Martinez and hiring Grantham proved the grass is greener on the other side. Bobo cannot compete in the SEC. The fact that Carlton Thomas was in the game (with Samual, Malcome and Harden on the side-line) proves that Bobo has no business calling a D-1 game.

I feel like we are in a bigger mess now then we were after last season because now we are stuck with Richts decisions for another 3-5 seasons. It does scare me to death because I got sucked into us getting better during that 10 game winning streak. Next season we will have a YOUNG offensive line so Murray may be running for his life and throwing even more picks. If Bobo stays expect more conservative play calling with a young O-LINE. Lemay will be our man but when will it actually happen!! Because I believe even if Lemay is better in practice than Murray this next season it won’t matter because Richt will never pull Murray.

So UGA starts with a blowout loss and a close loss (that the Dogs should have won) and they close the same way. Feels like the program is right back where it was when the season started. Not even competitive against LSU and losing to a team they should have clobbered because of poor coaching and erratic play at the QB and kicker positions and not being able to finish the game. Remember in the 6-7 year, they were out of shape. Now they get gassed when the game is on the line. Going out this pitiful way makes me think Richt can’t reach the next level. Auburn and Florida won’t be down long. Who knows about Tennessee? South Carolina has passed UGA. It’s been 32 years since the lone National Championship. Something just doesn’t feel right about the football program. I don’t feel like I connect to Richt and what he’s trying to do. Feels like he keeps the program kind of too himself and keeps the fans at bay. All too distant and aloof. Something isn’t right.

This one is all on the coaching staff. As a matter of fact, the LSU game was too. They proved they can play in the first half of each pf these 2 games, but Ga’s patheticcoaching staff couldn’t make the necessary adjustments. I truely believe that Bobo must go, but there is no way that Richt will fire him. He’ll just say that the offense scored plenty of points. That’s what the idiots on 680 say also.I am so sick of people in this town defending Richt and Bobo. CMR is an average coach, maybe even a little above, but he is nowhere near the caliber of Les Miles or Nick Saban. He just can’t put an opponent away when he has the chance. Oh well, at least he got a contract extention out of this mess. Another disappointing year, and nothing to show that next year will be better.

Same thing that beat UGA against LSU. Good defense 1st half, but missed oportunities on offense. Turnovers in the 3rd quarter and lacked a running game. Missed field goals were the final straw. The OL was not holding up – try screen passes and an occassional draw to slow down the rush. Bring in Arthue Lynch at TE to block and move Orson Charles to WR. Samuel & Crowell had bad ankles and should have not even played. They couldn’t cut. When your field goal kicker has missed 13 field goals you try to score a TD in ver time – not run up the middle once and take a knee on the next play. Pitiful execution by the offense overall but especially in over time.

I can’t take it anymore. The AD has to step in and get rid of this guy before Kirby Smart is gone! I totally agree with whoever posted that our guys leave early for a reason!

When you look at the elite offenses around the nation like Oregon and Boise State and watch how dynamic they are it really hurts to watch BoBo’s plodding system. If we don’t address the special teams and get a dynamic offensive coordinator we are doomed to mediocrity. Coach Spurrier said it best. At UGA we turn 5 star athletes into 1 or 2 star players. Coach Richt whom I respect and admire it is time for you to overhaul the offense.

I think it is time to get a new OC. UGA has some really good athletes but the play calling in the second half of games is pretty bad. The defensive coach of the other team, can prepare for the same thing he has seen in the first half and know that Bobo will not change anything around. The defense simply makes the corrections to stop what UGA was successful at in the first half and then beats UGA. There is nothing in the way of innovative play calling or adjusting the offense. The DAWGS defense can’t be expected to win the game every time for the offense. I feel bad for the seniors as they have to go out knowing that they should have had a win, but instead knowing their OC can’t do the job once again and let them down. He might be a good recruiter and QB coach, but I am not sure about that last part. This game is going to hurt recruiting. It is time for Ms. Dooley’s son in law to move onto a position he is more suited to. The university, their fans and most of all, the players deserve better than this.

No excuses. MSU clearly had the better of it in the second half. Georgia didn’t capitalize on field position in the first quarter when they could have put some distance between them and MSU. Murray made a couple of costly turnovers to go along with some great throws. Georgia couldn’t run when it needed to. Special teams (the FG unit) didn’t execute. None of this should be news. We’ve seen it vs. the four quality opponents they lost to. Georgia is a team that is flirting with the next level, but they won’t get there until they address the above. The positives were the defense and the receivers.

Bobo’s predictable.

Did Richt have LESS faith in Murray passing for a 1st down than Blair Walsh kicking a 42 yard FG?? (Blair Walsh has been aweful this season) Guess after Murray gave up 14 points on his own I see why, but if that’s the case I think Hudson Mason should be the starting QB at Georgia. Murray completely un-does his good deeds with his boneheaded game give-a-ways. RIcht needs to play the BEST QB. PERIOD.

It all comes down to Richt who lost all 4 games he played against good teams, and is now 0-9 vs. ranked teams with Aaron “T.O. Machine” Murray. Richt, with his horrid, ultraconservative playcalls, and Murray with his 4-5 turnovers a game against good teams are now 0-9 vs. ranked teams!!! Anyone surprised?? I thought not. Sadly, we pay this man Richt 3 million a year to get outcoached in 60 percent of his games…He was outcoached in all 4 losses, than you add the teams we barely beat with superior talent- Vandy, Tenn, Fla, and Kent. Thats 8 out of 14 games that Richt was outcoached….Pathetic!!! By comparison how many games was Saban or Miles outcoached this year?? One…..Maybe???

It’s always interesting trying to figure out how the Dawgs are going to blow it.

Add to that an offensive play caller (Bozo) who refuses to adjust as the game progresses (a middle school player could call a defense against them.) The offensive plays in the first overtime were the most embarassing pile of dog squeeze I have ever witnessed. Does no one remember how great BW has been this year? (That’s sarcasm-although ‘BW’ and ‘has been’ fits perfectly.) I hope Crowell’s boo-boo gets better. Might be a good idea to recruit a few EMT’s for next year. All in all, a predictable outcome from a predictable team.

This loss was on the offense. The main “same old problem” was the offensive line – they just plain got whipped, then gassed. Murray was hurt or shaken up in the second half – he did not look like himself down the stretch and in OT. Agree the playcalling was very suspect – throwing in the towel to opt for a long field goal attempt in OT was just idiotic.

I agree with the comments about Bobo and the play calling. I couldn’t believe we kept calling these counter draws and other slow developing inside runs. Especially when the outside runs worked fairly well. Plus, we consistently left the outside LB or DE unblocked. We couldn’t figure out their scheme. That is concerning, as is this new trend of the defense losing significant effectiveness in the 2nd half.

Face it Bulldawg Nation, and I am a life-long member, nothing will change until a change is made at the top. Richt has taken this program as high as it will ever go. He’s way to conservative to ever compete at the highest level. We all must accept the fact that Adams and McGarity are satisfied with UGA being a 2nd tier football program. CMR wins just enough to keep his job. It’s hard to fire a coach who wins 10 games. After 50+ years as a Bulldog fan reality has finally set in. My expectations are officially lowered after today’s exhibition of ultra-conservative football. Can’t imagine Saban or Miles coaching that way. Guess that’s why they are playing for a national championship.

The thing that disturbs me is that the offense disappears as it does.
I do think it has to do with a lack of adjustments by Bobo.
When Richt goes conservative with 3:30 minutes in the game,
he sends a signal that he doesn’t trust the team to run the offense.

It was conservative playcalling, more than a lack of execution, that caused this loss.

Why do you dawg fans keep torturing yourselves? Been mediocre for 30+ years. Just accept the fact that you can’t compete with the real college football teams, and move on with your life. Accept the wins against the .500 teams, and be happy. If you just happen to beat a team with a winning record, be happy for that win, but don’t assume you should play for a NC. Lower your expectations and your quality of life will improve. Maybe some Stuart Smalley will help you get through this until August.

The shortfalls of Bobo are of course 100% Richt’s fault, as he has stuck with Bobo year after year when UGA could certainly do better. It shouldn’t be hard for UGA to score points with it’s level of recruiting, yet Bobo lessens rather than strengthens the potential of the team. Then again, not only is sticking with Bobo Richt’s fault, but Richt must also still be the guy deciding to play conservative and to go for field goals with a kicker that lost his mojo months ago. If Richt doesn’t want to step down from the UGA program, he needs to send Bobo out the door and hire a new offensive coordinator that can teach the offensive to be more aggressive and more clutch.

The Coastal Caroline game,because of the lesser calibre of competition , the bulldogs had a balanced game ,with Crowell over 100 yards, and Murray throwing 5or 6 touchdowns for the game. With the talent to come on the Offensive line and the much improved talent to come on the running game, couple this with the experience attained by Murray and the receivers,and the additions to the Defense and a new kicker, UGA will be able to respond to all teams like they did to Coastal Carolina!

(1) I absolutely love Coach Richt and hope he never leaves (2) It’s not Walsh’s fault for missing all the field goals this year – it’s the coaches fault for continuing to put him out there – we had a pretty good back-up kicker in
Bogotay but they were permanently married to Walsh – come heck or high water (3) The bigger the game the worse Murray plays – I think he is a great person and great for the Georgia program – but maybe as a team chaplain or something like that -you can predict the number of fumbles and picks he is going to have by the importance of the game – that has gone on for two years in a row. Great leader – disaster of a quarterback who can’t manage the game and take care of the ball – defense is gassed by end of game trying to cover up for his continually consistent miscues (4) Difficult to establish a running game when backs are being changed in and out like bad light bulbs (5) has no one else discovered that Bobo’s coaching philosophy is “if it ain’t broke fix it” or better said “If a play absolutely won’t work keep running it till it does” – even if it costs the game I will still get validated.”.

Dawg Fans:

There is something that we must grasp if we are to keep our sanity for the foreseeable future.

That is that under McGarity & Richt, mediocrity is acceptable. Being the 4th or 5th best team in the SEC IS good enough. Our expectations as fans are realistic. However, they do not match the expectations of our AD or our HC.

I’m tired of being out-coached. IT WAS OBVIOUS that we had the better team. And I know that it’s b/c or Richt’s regime that we have all of these good players, but who’s to say that someone else couldn’t do a better job of coaching up these players and deliver results on the field?

Our “playing-not-to-lose” approach cost us again. Ever since the collapse in 2008 I think Richt has lost his desire to go all in to win games. We were so talented all over the field that year and yet injuries and a terrible defensive scheme cost us a chance at the MNC that year.

I hope that the “hot seat” is not completely cooled off yet. Richt needs just a little pressure to get anything done it seems. We had to beg and practically go on strike to get rid of W.Martinez. What will it take to get Richt to re-evaluate the Offensive play calling duties -because make no bones about it- Bobo isn’t going anywhere. No one else wants him and Richt “loves” him too much.
The best we can hope for is Richt to have an even more active role in MAKING ADJUSTMENTS as the game progresses instead of calling the game plan at all costs.
I.E. Do we even have tight ends anymore? Is Mitchell really not a deep threat anymore?

I hope we make major adjustments to our scheme because we really have a chance to get a ton of W’s next season.

Go Dawgs!

Richt doesn’t coach to win he coaches as he trying not to lose. His teams never have the killer instinct.
1st overtime, he plays it so conservatively and doesnt even try to run forward to get more yard on 2nd and 3rd down. Michigan State didnt score at all in the first overtime so worst case your going to 2nd ot if you turn the ball over. Why not try and get your kicker closer who has not been consistant all year.
Mark Richt has proven he is one of worst crunch time coaches and has a horrible record in big games.
Im stunned he hasnt been fired.

What did you expect?

January 2nd, 2012
11:34 pm

20 seconds to go in the first half, Richt lets the time runout without making MSU punt. Then, AJ fumbles the ball, throws two interceptions, yet Richt continues to play him. At the end of the game with 3:46 left, Richt runs the ball into the line three times. Shouldn’t he have realized the defense was dog tired after playing with so much intensity for the whole game? How does anyone expect Georgia’s talent to win, when he doesn’t have the foggiest idea of what is happening with his team? Georgia will never rise above third tier level with Mark Richt. He’s a good person, but not a football coach.

That we have a great Defense which we do.

That his body of work proves that he is the # 4 best coach in all of America, which he is not.

There will be

Jimmy, and I have been saying it is not the coaches, it is the so-called 5-star athletes on this team. If I am to believe what the writers on the AJC have said, there is no way that UGA loses to Michigan State because they just don’t have the athletes. I heard that when they played Boise State, and I also heard that UGA should be able to keep up with LSU. Star athletes make the plays to win games, something that just has not happened in Athens in a long, long time.

Look at the difference between Stanford/OK. State players and UGA players.

HE MISSES 13 TO 15 FIELD GOALS THIS YEAR AND EVERY GAME WAS A NIGHTMARE WITH HIM. HE MISSED FIELD GOAL AFTER FIELD GOAL DURING THE REGULAR BUT IT NEVER BIT UGA IN THE BACKSIDE. BUT GUESS WHAT IN THE MICHIGAN STATE GAME BLAIR WALSH FINALLY COSTED UGA BIG TIME. THAT FIELD ATTEMPT WAS RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE FIELD AND WHAT HE DOES HE MISSES IT IT CAUSES UGA THE GAME WHAT YOU PEOPLE NEED TO DO IS GET ON BLAIR WALSH BECAUSE HE WAS REASON THEY LOST HE STRUGGLING WAY FINALLY BEAT UGA IN THE BACKSIDE.

Anytime anybody fell on him this year he came out. He had a month or more to heal. I watched him during pregame warmups and he wasn’t limping while he was dancing. What a joke!

1. Murray committed 3 turnovers against Michigan State, 3 against LSU, 3 against South Carolina. He simply chokes in big games. Mason should have gone in.
2. Walsh choked. Fans blogged all off season about getting a Special Teams coach. Richt made a strategic error there.
3. Bobo’s offense put up 30 points, he called an excellent game, especially considering the way his running game faltered, and Murray started melting down with turnovers. Murray and the running backs just didn’t execute.

2012 need to win like LSU & Alabama do by:
1- Special Teams Coach
2- Run first mentality on offense–effectiuve running game, even when they know you’re running the ball
3- QB who doesn’t try to be the star, QB who trusts defense and doesn’t turn ball, Murray needs to be benched, anyone is better. Murray committed AT LEAST 3 TURNOVERS against M St, LSU, and South Carolina. Murray cost us the season AGAIN just like he did last year with 3 turnover games against Florida, SC, and UCF..

Mr Richt owes his loyalty to football and to Georgia, not to keeping particular people in particular positions. Sometimes the best thing you can do for somebody is removing them.

A,men!! Ever wonder if you could get the dawgs that left early for the NFL to sit and explain their reason(s) for leaving early other than the $$$ how many of them would admit their was no incentive to return as long as Bozo was the OC?? I’ll bet more than a few would admit as long as Bozo is OC that the chances for these players to play on a NC or even SEC C team was little to none. So why stay?

Bill King summerized those recurring blunders that even the most avid bulldog fans have known for years that Bobo cannot take this team to greatness no matter what talent we have. He simply cannot achieve anymore than he already has and has peaked out and over stayed his time as OC. As one blogger put it, if CMR can let his best buddy Martinez go he sure as hell can look for another OC. CTG has worked out nicely as a replacement for martinez and I’m sure it won’t be that difficult to replace the likes of Bozo. We’ve had enough of this BS.

First, Bill King’s article right on. Second, Dawgs had the game well in hand, MSU was dead in water. Aaron gave them life. Aaron l love you, l appreciate your work effort and film study. You need to take another step next year. Be a Real Man, no fumbles no matter what. Some interceptions can’t be stopped, but the cheap pick 6’s must be eliminated. Coach Richt l love you. You are my Coach. l walk the same Christian walk you walk. When it comes to college football, especially Georgia football, when we tee it up ‘Tween the Hedges or any field of honor, leave the Mr. Nice Guy at home. My Dawgs, the players, the fans, me included, all who have any vested interest in our team require that our Young Men are Warriors. We take no prisoners, WE offend all our foes. We have no mercy, hang half a hundred on them and SHUT EVERYONE OUT. lf you can’t be a Warrior General, you need to leave coaching all together. If you make your players compete at a high level, practice HARD, Play HARDER, Coach, you are going to have to reach down deep and coach the games going for the ole ball coaches jugular vein just like he coaches like his hair is on fire against MY DAWGS. You must have more intensity than the other coach. If Coach Franklin challenges anyone wearing red next year, do yourself a favor and KNOCK him OUT. When the game is WON, apoligize and ask for forgiveness and take up the Christian Walk again until the next WAR. Just Do It Coach. l love you Coach but pick it up please. l am really disappointed for my Dawgs that worked so hard, but l feel you let them down. Sorry

What does u g a spell? Mediocrity…..performance that is adequate (almost) but not very good. Bobo offense means predictability, play good 2 quarters, then sit on you ass. Whatever happened to UGA’S being Tail Back U ? We had cornerbacks playing tailback??? Did we run any toss sweeps” Any option pitches? Do we have a quarterback that can run a wild cat every now and them or do we just want to (try) to run only between the tackles. Get a few new wrinkles on offense or fire Bobo and install some more wide open offense. Why would any All American running back want to come to Georgia? Waste your time and talent…..

Let’s call a spade a spade… It’s time for some new blood in the Dawg pound!!! These guys are recruiting nothing but 4 and 5 star prospects and yet we keep getting the same lame results. Now if the AD sees this and allows it to continues then he needs to go. I know our previous one did some bad things but at least he was realistic, why give bum coaches a pay raise??? Lets keep Coach Richt but fire that OC Bobo, he doesn’t understand the fact that you are playing a FBS team that can score, the defense needs some help and with your offense giving the other team the ball its a crime shame, when the only objective is to out score the opposite team. Why is AD and HC allowing this man to make UGA a consistent B level program? If they don’t get it, its time for them to go as well. The way I see it, if we got all this talent in Athens, we should be winning more, it’s obvious that all our flaws are coaching ie; lacking of preparation, inability to adjust, can’t score against any team better than New Mexico State, terrible play calling, complete lazy football after halftime. Go Dawgs! Just fix the problems…

Mike Bobo is a grad of UGA and I wonder if he were not a coach at UGA and just a fan would he be screaming for the OC to be fired–You damn right he would. Therefore, Mr. Bobo, if you love your school as much as we do, please do the right thing and resign and stop all this negativity about you. For gosh sake man, you know that is what the majority of the fans want. Make it is easy on coach Richt and if you truly love our dawgs resign or take a demotion to qb coach.

Our play calling staff need to grow a pair and go for the win. CMR first came to UGA they won games because of agressive play calling. Now for some reason and I don’t understand we only get agressive when behind. Until this changes we might win a occasional big game but it will be rare. Playing for a 42 yard field goal?, running up the middle with a defense stacked to prevent the run? come on give your players the chance to win!!!! We never dumped passes off to our running backs, ran no bubble screens after the first half, we never got one ball to Orson Charles in the second half, it looked to me that Murray locked in on one receiver and let it fly. Major loss but we have got to learn and change our play calling or ?????????????????

Same ole Georgia. You had the easiest schedule in the SEC and will have it next year also. But when you have to play any tough team you fold like a deck of cards. I have an answer. Give your loser coach a lifetime contract. You will never see a championship. Through all of the problems, through all the years, there is one common denomator..Coach Richt.

I can't believe Aaron Murray BLEW THAT GAME to go to 0-9 vs teams ending top 25, 3 sacks, fumble, 2 interceptions, 9 rushes minus 14 yards 1 reception blocked pass minus 3 yards all with 16 point lead.

Pago Pago,

Have you got some kind of fetish about hair styles. What the hell has it got to do with how they play football. JJ, the Heisman trophy winner and a lot of folks from Oregon and Oke. state have the same type of hair style and they seem to do darn good. It sounds like to me that you are a little racist, but I don”t suppose you would admit that. If you think hair style had anything to do with the loss, you need to go back to your island and pick coconuts for a living.
Take it from an older guy, that is almost 63. Hair style has nothing to do with it. Vanilla play calling is the problem. You can’t win the big games, if you are so predictable that you can’t even fool the fans watching the game. If they were winning games, I could care less, if everybody on the team, coaches included had pony tails.
If you watched any of the bowl games in the last couple of days, you would have seen lots of kids with the same hair style as Crowell, JJ and the the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor, and you would probably put 2 + 2 together and figure it out. You have to understand how to watch a football game and be able to evaluate it. That means you have to be able to understand the game.

“I believe they had an open contest in spring and fall training camps this year for starting QB, and Murray cam out on top. Being a QB has more to do than just throwing passes. You have to be able to control the team, be the leader and be able to take a hit as well. Murray has shown the ability to do those things. Tell me in all honesty that you think Mason, or LeMay would have been the difference in winning or losing the 3 games we lost this year. Football is a team sport, and Murray is one of the best team players UGA has on that field. I would bet you would find out, if you talked to the players on that team, how much Murray means to that team. Like I said, it is a team sport. One guy seldom loses or wins the game for a team, and Murray is no different in that respect.

You say he hasn’t won against any top 25 teams. Nobody presently on this team for the last two years has either.”

Thank goodness Walsh will not be back to lose another game. Did he get into the leafy stuff over last summer’s break? And as much as I like BoBo’s dedication to UGA, he needs to step back and just be a coach and Richt find a true offensive cordinater. Bobo-Booboo is living in the past in his days as a quarterback. Murray, please don’t ever mention the words don’t worry about my interceptions. Yes, you were part of the loss.

Old Dog

Once more the Dawgs have managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

I hear that Aaron Murray and Blair Walsh will share the MVP status… for Michigan State.

In fairness to Blair Walsh, I feel sorry for his current slump, of course our COACHES could have made the decision to pull him. He was our only bright star last year. And for those who say Blair Walsh lost the game yesterday – he would not have had to kick a field goal in OT if there hadn’t been two intercetions thrown by Murray.

Things will stay the same: mediocre. Mark Richt will get his five-year extension. He will continue to play only Aaron Murray as his QB. AM will continue to be the same. The only question is whether Old Dog will care enough to tune in to mediocre, disappointing football next season.

NO, if we made the field goal, I would have been saying we barely managed to pull them out of the fire by the skin of our teeth – like with Vandy. Coach Richt would still have been the one who let us go from a 16-0 lead at the halftime into overtime.

And by the way, I LOVE the Dawgs (the football team). I just don’t LOVE the Coach(es).

Bobo stated after the game to Mark Bradley, when asked, That when we got the ball back in regulation with 3:46 left at our own 35 and needed maybe two first downs to ICE the game, he wanted to pass and was over ruled from the sideline. It’s in Bradley’s follow piece last night if you want to read it. This game is on the HEAD Coach. After 10 years, the guy is getting worse.

What I saw yesterday makes me think we’ll be saying the same things next year after another lesser bowl loss. Nothing will change at OC, Murray will still be choking in big games, and we’ll still wonder what happened to our RBs. A Richt extension is the last thing we need if we want to get out of this mediocrity funk. The problem has always been at the top. Too much loyalty to underperformming coaches and players; no accountablity, and definitely the mind set that complete dedication to winning is not essential.

As an SEC head coach Mark Richt is a joke. He will always be a poor second to coaches like Saban, Miles, Petrino and, late in life, Spurrier. Richt has won his last SEC championship and the Richt loving fools had better get used to it. I wonder how long it will take the Athletic Board, Adams and McGarity to realize and to finally admit that Richt is a drag on the program and that the only solution is to fire him and find a coach who can compete with the best in the SEC. Probaly not anytime soon. Such is the state of football at UGA. The Ghsts of Herty Field must be spinning in their graves. Disgraceful.

Hi Bill. Does it bother you as much as I that teams which fail against ALL other SEC teams – fail BADLY in actuality – always make Bulldogs look lost and hapless? IT SURE DOES ME!

Now…I have nothing against Christian religion. Please note I typed CHRISTIAN! Having covered sports as reporter for four decades I have walked many sidelines during football games. Not the type of language one should record then replay at a morning church service I assure you. My point is that football is an emotional game. Or at least WINNING football is. Football sidelines without heat almost always belong to losers. Georgia Bulldog sidelines are as icy as an ice cube in Antarctica. Will always be that way under Saint Mark Richt. Barely beat nobodies. Get blown off turf by quality teams! If rest of Bulldog Nation is satisfied with that failure so be it. I AM NOT! Makes me sick to my stomach. :(

Benefitted from o-line that appeared to be much larger than their oposition. But he is a 5 star, and that is what is so highly valued at GA. If you are gonna run the ball in the SEC, go find kids like the Hilliard kid down at LSU. Surely their are big backs in the GA high school system. Give me a 3 star with size and heart over a 5 star diva anyday.

Though the Dawgs are loaded-and that is a fact- one of the best offensive lines in the country andcomparable defense, they will never-never win a national championship mgame without a running game. Forget Crowell, he is about Crowell and should be sent packing. With the offensive line he is running behind, he should have been the Freshman Back of the year in the SEC. But he is not the horse Georgia needs to make the title run. Murray is a fine QB, but his protection broke down in the last half. I believe due to poor conditioning of the OF line. But with the pancake schedule next year even running the table might not be enough to make the BCS title game.

Reading so many opinions just fires me up to give mine. :-) Just a few things. The fumble at the 1/2 yard line by Thomas. That was a pep killer and to me it seemed to pop the ballon. Bobo play calling at the end of the game with Ga up and 3 min left. The fool knew the running game was not going to work and still calls three running plays just so they could punt. 3rd and 4 and not try for the first down is one of the worst calls to me of the entire year. Combine that the time outs they had left and you see the results. With Walsh, I just don’t know what to say. He didn’t seemed to bothered with the whole thing after the game. He said over his career he’s been reliable. Like that fixed his last 6 games. Wow.
Y’all are wrong about Murray. He does not have a noodle arm and I think he showed that. The pass to King was long and dead on. But he does get rattled pretty easy. He does not handle pressure well. but their quarterback. That boy was good. With him backed up against a block wall he showed what he’s made of. Tough dude and good to boot.

Crowell! What can be said. The announcer said when he limped, “is anybody really supprised”? That pretty much tells the tail.

But once again. Bobo has to go. Ga is going to be in a predictable offense next year if not. But the worse part of what happened yesterday was at the end Richt saw what was going to happen and still didn’t change one thing. No excuses for that.

Two things has to happen. Richt is going to stop being the “players coach” and Bobo is going to have to find something else to do. The defense is in fine shape. I love the way they play. Grantham has those boys playing their hearts out, and Bobo has the offense stinking up the joint.

The article is pretty much dead on. Impossible to continue to defend Richt,Bobo and Murray. The coaching staff lacks the edge it takes to put this team over the top. Hate to even admit it but today I eat crow. That is the reality we all face. Richt lead UGA to a “Paper Chamionship” this year. All smoke and mirrors and he suckered us all into more than likely an extension. No way do we make it past LSU or Bama next year.

I find it sad how many dumb Georgia fans are willing to stand by Richt as if it’s so noble and loyal to support this man.

He has no loyalty. Look at the way he told Crowell he would be our feature guy and a fixture in our offense, then has thrown him under the bus and given the EXACT same pick-up lines to Marshall.

You think Richt will stay loyal to Marshall if he underperforms in the same way Crowell does?

No. Of course not. Richt will be “loyal” to the guys who perform well.

We as fans should do the same. Why stay loyal to Richt and Co. when he has proven time and time again he is incapable of winning big games?

Bill, you are dead on with your comments. So many baffling descisions. Where was Ken Malcome at the end of the game? He was our best runner yet was not in there. Was he hurt?

Why didn’t we go to Orson Charles? Needing a first down at the end of regulation, we run Samuel 3 straight times. Why not throw to Charles, King or Mitchell? The game would have been over with a first down and overtime would have never happened.

And the most baffling decision of Richt’s career. He totally gave up on that posession in the first overtime. Took a knee on 2nd down and lost 2 yards doing it. Then brings in Walsh who has a HORRIBLE season, and decides to let him kick it on 3rd down?? If it was Kevin Butler or John Kasay, I might could see doing that. But Blair Walsh??? Did Richt not learn anything from the Florida game??

Does anybody remember the OT game against Alabama a few years ago? Stafford throws a TD pass in the corner, on first down I think it was and we win the game.

With Walsh as your kicker, you do everything you can to try and get the ball in the endzone. If your drive stalls, then on 4th down you turn to Walsh ONLY as your last resort.

Going with Walsh as your first choice will go down as the worst decison in Richt’s career.

Orson had one pass thrown to him? And why in the world would you not, at least once during the entire season, let your 270 lb fullback get a carry on 3rd or 4th and short? Not one carry all year!!!

It does amuse me that so many support Richt AND Fat Todd, despite the fact that the two are polar opposites.

Richt is absolutely impotent as a head coach, failing to motivate his players in the big games, but we support him because he’s “such a nice guy.”

Fat Todd, on the other hand, has done a good job with the defense, but he is an ABSOLUTE JERK. How many times does he have to embarrass us as a university before “fans” will see him for what he is?

From a UA perspective, so TIFWIW:

1. No depth on the defensive side. Your first 11, no matter how, good, can only last so long. By the way, your linebackers are something to see.

2. No depth on the offensive line.

3. Crowell may need to grow up and maybe he never will, but if he keeps reinjuring a high-ankle sprain he can’t play, regardless of what you thousands of practicing orthopedists say.

4. Who do you think decides the game plan? The head coach is not wearing that head set just to cover his bald spot.

5. Aaron Murray lost all confidence in the second half. Try designing a game plan around a quarterback who can no longer see the field. On the subject of QBs, there should be an open competition in the spring. If Murray is still best, so be it. And tell me this: How many programs in America would allow a “backup” quarterback to make headlines during the regular season for saying he might leave for more playing time?

6. Running game? You can’t beat decent opponents without it.

7. Last year you pilloried Mark Richt for not going for a touchdown in the bowl game. This year you pillory him when he did.

8. Show a little respect to your coaches and players. Disappointing loss, sure. But many of these comments are an embarrassment to what you say you stand for.

Sorry I didn’t read anyother blogs This my last for this year (others were banned from ajc). This is not the blame game but Bobo and walsh are in the way of the Dogs greatness. Do not “run from the shotgun” only occasional surprise! We will continue to lose to most of “compartible opponent” games if Bobo calls play. Do not use 4 kids in three years to kill my soft Ritch. Keep Bobo, he is good at recruit and QB coach. Walsh, as usual, think he is a big boy like other kickers, stand to kick “never run through” the kick. It’s OK for him now.

UGA played three pretty good teams and they (as usual ) lost all three. When are the UGA fan going to take their heads out of the sand and quit putting up with Richts mediocrity. If Fla or Aub had played UGA’s schedule they would have won ten games as well. AS usual Richt is excited about next year. How long are we going to put up with high expectations with the usual results. Richt doesn’t have the will to do any better than a ten win season. He is perfectly happy with that because he can lie on the couch holding hands with the water girl and feel perfectly safe in his job without any pressure to do any better.

The players are teenagers and early twenty-somethings. I know they are doing all they can. I can’t and won’t blame them, even if they may have made a bad play.
I blame a grown man getting big dollars to put the kids in a position to win, to succeed, and continuing to try the same things in the same situations with the same results for several years now.
Bob is a great recruiter and a good qb coach. IMO, he’s not a great OC. And finally, CMR is wearing the headset with ‘veto’ authority. Of course he has veto authority, he’s the head coach!
I do know this: Regardless, when Richt was calling plays, or now with Bobo calling them, we settle for field goals entirely too much.

It’s really hard to stomach the same thing happening over and over again in big games. The one game BOBO got it right this year was Auburn. He just can’t seem to do it more then once or twice a year. I sit on the coach and call the plays before they happen at least 70% of the time. With the talent we have we should be winning big but it’s not going to happen ever if we don’t keep the other team off balance. If BOBO were even a good play caller you would see other teams trying to hire him as HC but it’s not happening. It’s sad all the talent we’ve wasted. Look what Staford is doing in the NFL right now and his stats were just mediocre at GA because we didn’t know how to use him. O Charles had 1 catch yesterday. Same thing. He will be a star in the NFL.

speaking of offense, watching Bama play this year, their offense is not fancy, it just works. And I’ve come to the conclusion that’s it’s having a physical OL and physical RB’s. The passing game is really bland and dull, but works because the running game is so good. It’s really vanilla.

You had that whole game in your hands!!!!! Yeah, its a lot of pressure, but 43 yards???? Really? When he misses the first kick, put in the next bigger, better kicker! Aaron is throwing too short of a pass and really needs to do better next season if we really wanna win a national championship. Boykin was amazing ysterday. All i have to say about him. Isaiah Crowell, Isaiah Crowell, injured again? He seems to be wearing a sign on his back that says “I REALLY DON’T WANT TO BE PLAYING THIS GAME RIGHT NOW SO JUST INJURE ME SO GRANTHAM CAN YELL AT ME FOR BEING SOFT!!” Its the true thing!

The big question is, will Richt have enough sense to overhaul the Offensive side of the ball to match the Defensive side. If not. UGA will continue to fall further into the abyss. Hold all contract extensions until he agrees to upgrade the offense and hire a special teams coach. If not, Grantham will make a darn good HC to replace Richt. The O needs some fire and it’s not coming from CMR or Bozo.

I try to be as fair as possible but CMR really needs to take a look at whats going on with Georgia . The main reason he stills has a job is because of the defensive coordinator. I would give him a big time pay raise. The defense had 9 3 and outs during the game . you can not ask the def, to continue to hold a good team down the entire game and the off. does not take advantage of it. The same thing happened in the SECCG. CMR and BOOBOO plays are predictable to a person setting at home watching the game so you would have to think that def. knows the play as well. When the majority of the people make comments and they are of the same complaints it should be looked at . I could say more but why CMR just want listen

This Dawg sees it this way AND it’s only an opinion, but it’s my opinion:

1) Dawgs will never become an elite team as long as Bobo is running the offense.
2) Dawgs will never win a b ig game as long as Murray is the QB.
3) Dawgs will never get to the next level until they learn to play a full 60 minutes with HEART!!

This hearts saying this, but the gators, I thought they were going to lose, played with a ton of heart all game long. I don’t care if OSU could not beat most teams this year. You can tell that they wanted to win that game more than anything.
When was the last time the Dawgs played a full 60 minutes with heart. The last game that comes to ind was the Auburn “Black Out” game. That was a long time ago.
I am a CMR supporter. Yes, mostly because of his character and beliefs. Many on here could care less about those qualities and would rather see him gone. I have a feeling you might get your wish if this team can’t step it up next year.

Boykin played his way into an early round draft pick yesterday. Blair Walsh ruined his chances at being a high pick. Justin Anderson has got to be the worst lineman to suit up for UGA since Dennis Inman. He was constantly beat by his man, and had about 4 false starts. Murray was responsible for all 3 turnovers, which led to 3 TDs for MSU. Bobo called a gutless and predictable second half, as usual. He needs to be cleaning out his desk this morning, but we all know he won’t be. Playing not to lose and calling plays to sit on a lead aren’t cutting it. We need a new OC. No ifs, ands, and buts about it.

This loss falls squarely on the shoulders of Bobo, Walsh, & Murray.

Aaron Murray is just like Crowell(whom I think will be better next year)

Benefited from the departures of many veterans to really challenge him for the spot like Logan Gray, Zach Mettenberger, Stafford, and even Joe Cox.

So basically there was no competition except Metternberger who had a bigger arm if I recall.

Ahhh, there we are. I knew it wouldn’t take long. I guess since you titled this “same old problems” you won’t mind me saying “same old Bill.” It’s Bobo, it’s Bobo. Jeez – did Bobo force Murray to look totally lost out and throw the picks? Did Bobo miss an easy field goal yet again? Did Bobo put the ball on the ground? No. What about the early line play where our tackles just decided not to block MSU players? Did Bobo call the line blocking schemes too? Yeah, he made a couple of bad calls – if you watch more than just Georgia, you will see that every coach does. But you and your ilk can’t see past blaming Bobo. Get over it Bill. New year.

Hate to admit that I am a member of one of the most ignorant fan bases in college football. New Years resolution will not call Bama and Chickens fan bases ignorant until part of our so-called fans or gone or changes attitute.

Calling for coaches to be fired when a kicker who made 50 yarders in high school misses a chippy is well ignoramous. The call by Coach Richt was absolutely the right call, if Murray throws a pick or fumbles then what?

Some of these so-called fans deserve Derek Dooley as coach, thtas what change brings sometimes in coaching and in politics.

Yes we are not a top 10 team this year, and I personally did not expect us to be. yes, we probably should have beat 2 of those 4 top ten teams we played. Coaches can’t throw and catch the ball or kick the field goal. Individual players have to do their job, as many did in game , but not whole team. Just like our so-called fan base,

Plenty of blame to go around. Murray zero for two in bowls, Game was in the bag until Murray threw his two picks to awaken the sleeping Spratans. UGA’s inability to run the football was an all too often phenomenon. Bobo’s playcalling was typical of his tenure as OC. If something is working, get away from it. Blair Walsh had a chance to make up for a dismal year and blew it multiple times. (By the way, the miserable announcers were wrong on the blocked FG in 3rd OT. There was no significiant penetration by MSU, Walsh kicked it low). You can fault CMR for ultra conservative 1st OT and relying on a demonstrably unreliable kicker, but given Murray’s penchant for throwing picks and our inability to run the football, maybe it was not a poor decision. Bottom line, as I have said for years, CMR is a fine man, but is overly influenced by his time with Bobby Bowden. He is trying to coach ACC football in the SEC. You cannot win with an offense of smoke and mirrors. Until we get an offensive line that can move prople so we can run the football, we will not win an SEC championship.

This 10-4 team looked just like the 6-7 team last year. The only difference was the winning percentage. UGA is winning off of talent alone without the benefit of a stable, durable running game. But that’s not such a big deal because the running game was never a strong suit in this offense. You can’t get mad at BoBo because he is running CMR’s offense and he makes no decisions as far as strategy and what’s called on third downs. If BoBo insists on 7 step drops and long downfield passes, is it because those are the plays available or does the HC insist on a vertical passing strategy as opposed quicker shorter throws? Unless CMR is willing to ring in another OC, turn over the responsibility of the offense, and bring in a totally new playbook, you have to fire him in order to get rid of BoBo. Georgia simply cannot afford to give CMR anything more than a 3 year extension. You can only play the games on your schedule but a spade is a spade and an easy schedule 2 years in a row tells us next to nothing.

And after 13 games, you would think that the WR’s and AM would be on the same page.

I thought Georgia was controlling the game up until the pick 6. Two crucial events that seemed to turn it was after MSU closed to 16-14 Gerogia intercepted and returned to the MSU 10. Richt goes conservative and comes away with 3 versus 7. The play calling during the first OT which I am sure Richt has veto power over was really questionable. After that it appeared that it was not going to be who would step up and win but who was going to lose it. Feel your pain though in the kicking game struggles.

We played 4 “good” teams this year (3 good, 1 great) and lost all 4. Murray still hasn’t beaten a decent team. The 4 “quality wins” were against Florida and Auburn who were way down, Tennessee who stunk up every stadium they played in and Tech who had their usual 1 great game (against Clemson) a season.

We are a solid tier 2 football program who will beat Ole Miss, GT and Vandy (barely) – but I don’t see us stepping up and beating ARK, Bama or LSU with Bobo as our OC. One clear sign that he is a terrible OC – THERE ARE NO TEAMS TRYING TO HIRE HIM AWAY!

1. Murray can’t put together 60 minutes. Somewhere in every big game, he has a 3-5 minute stretch where he is throwing to open space, or to the other team for a Pic-6. Not to mention putting the ball on the ground. This is happening far too frequently.
2. Murray tested the NFL draft out of curiosity. There’s no guessing here. After yesterday, his draft status went DOWN. He has no business even thinking about the NFL right now.
3. Great job by the D, except you have to think CTG is rethinking the “prevent” we used in the last two minutes of regulation. Would a little more pressure have worked better? Either way, the D played well enough to win yesterday.
4. Unless we upgrade at OC similar to the way we upgraded at DC, it’s more of the same next year.
5. Where are you Keith Marshall? Crowell can’t stay healthy!
6. “Way to play” to the defense, BB, and TK!

Richt isn’t very smart, no matter what his defenders say. He doesn’t know how to manage a game or the clock and he loves field goals, even when they cost him the game. This is a recurring theme, not something that just happened once. He made Bobo the OC because everyone complained about how bad CMR was at OC, but they’re pretty much the same. Attempting to run up the middle with a one-back backfield fools no one, which is why MSU made so many tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Richt doesn’t really understand how the game is played. We drove up to the Music City Bowl one year in icy weather and UGA was down by less than a TD to Boston College, had 1:15 left in the game with no time outs, and Georgia punted! All of the UGA fans got up and left immediately. Then there was the running play against Auburn with no time outs, only seconds left, and they never got off the next play. Richt might be a nice guy, but he’s not even close to being a good coach. UGA had a 10-2 season because it backed into a number of games against hapless opponents.

Give MSU credit they beat us with less talent and better coaching. When they couldn’t get their receivers open down field they made the adjustments and ran all their receivers deep taking our DB’s and safeties with them and then threw the screen pass to perfection, tiring our LB’s out. How many times did we see no one around on defense when the backs caught a pass, or when the QB decided to run? No pressure in the 2hd half on their QB who is plenty good enough to pick a defense apart.

In the biggest games against the better teams, Murray really hurts the team with his fumbles & picks. It’s time to see what Mason can do because he sure can’t do any worse. If nothing else it will show Murray that other QB’s will play if he keeps making these critical mistakes. Hopefully, in the 2012 season we’ll have a running game, a new playcaller or better plays called, better special teams play, and a QB that doesn’t turn the ball over so much. I love the defense though. Grantham has done a tremendous job. But it takes more than defense to win championships. Georgia has a long way to go. This offense has been so inconsistent for a long time now. I love Richt & want him at Georgia for a very long time, but he has to make some changes on the offensive side of the ball.

A little over three minutes in the game a couple of first downs will win it. Three runs up the middle unbelievable that is just absolutely the worst play calling the history of Georgia football. The Spartans had already had about 17 or 18 tackles for a loss in the run game. To add insult to injury chicken$%#$ Richt wastes a third down play in OT has the running back fall down on the second play and them they sent poor Blair witch project in.

I do blame Bobo for the game. Yes, the team has to execute, no doubt, but it’s like business, you have to set yourself up for success. In this case Bobo has to set the offense up for success. I mean, did we even throw to a tight end yesterday? Any play actions on 1st down? Did we spread the offense out to stay away from their stregths? Was MSU not one of the best defenses against the run and how many times did we run up the middle? No screens, no delays out of the backfield. I can go.

Bobo does not play to the strengths of his players. He calls the same 6 to 8 plays when ever he can’t figure out how to make adjustments. Good grief I was a baseball player and stopped playing football in High School, but can predict every play that Bobo called before it started. It’s awful!

Murray is very overrated and not the quarterback Georgia needs to win a national championship. Crowell can’t take any kind of hit without getting hurt. He needs to be repalced. Bobo is probably the worst offensive coach in college football and Coach Richt doesn’t take charge when he needs to. If you see your coaches are not in the same game you are in, take over. I love the Dawgs and it hurts my heart to see most of the players work hard only to have the game given away because of a lack of mental toughness, very bad coaching (play calling) and NO LEADERSHIP.

This loss has nothing to do with Mike Bobo at all. It was all on the little Matt Ryan in Training (Aaron Murray). This guy cannot win a big game for some reason. Just like Matt Ryan, he gets all of this overrated hype about how good he is and going to be by showing great result against these mediocre teams but when the big test come they both fail.

The bulldogs will not get better until BOBO IS GONE. Yesterdays game against MS was arguably his worst play calling EVER. Repeatedly….when it was clear that the running game wasn’t working at all, BoBo kept calling runs up the middle. Overall, Georgia was very predictable on offense. A great example of stupid play calling was early in the game when GA had the ball fourth and goal…and decided to go for it, with the passing game working great and the run gamet stufffed. MS lined up to stop the run and instead of a short quick pass, GA last yardage and a touchdown. Terrible play calling throughout the game. GA has all the talent in the world, a terrific defensive coach and Richt is a coach players love to play for but BoBo is no a top tier offensive coordinator to say the least!

I’m a Aaron Murray fan, but I do believe that if I were coach, I would have to let Hutson Mason play for a series or two at least, in these games that Murray throws and gives away. What is the harm?

Richt and Co has watched Murray singlehandedly give 4 or 5 games away in 2 seasons, without so much as a 1-series-benching.

Murray must be in Richt’s Bible-study group . . .

If AM was as good as he and everybody else tells him he is we would be undefeated. Truth of the matter is, he is way to streaky a player to every be an NFL qb. Much less a heisman canidate. Sometimes he looks realy good. And then there are the times he single handedly gave games away during his career. I for one would like to see his job up for grabs. Along with “I C no reason to play with any heart”. And then there is this Walsh kid who has been as talked about as these other two clowns.. What gives with this guy? Its as bad as pulling for the braves. So Much hope….So little output. Bobo is a problem but not the only problem. AM made these crucial errors not CMB. Look at all the games we should have won. But thanks to Mr football he literally threw them away. Hats off to Mr. Boykin. ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING PLAYERS TO EVER WEAR THE RED AND BLACK. DGD. You will be missed. Good luck at the next level.

The pressure to remove Bobo is going to be akin to what it was to get rid of Willie Martinez. I agree, Bobo’s play calling is pathetic. He has got to get out of the way. My concern is what happens if Richt decides to hire a new OC. Will installing a new OC disrupt any offensive momentum we have in recruiting and will it require an adjustment period like Grantham needed last year??? I just wish Coach Richt would take over the OC reigns. Constantly calling for ‘up the middle’ is insanity! What was happening that made him think it would eventually work????? Short slant routes bring quick and easy yardage that chews the clock….but ‘UP THE MIDDLE!’ WTH????

UGA needs an offensive coordinator to match the defensive side of the ball. The offense has imploded the last two games during the second half. Yesterday Coach Richt gave up on the O and it was a sad sight to see. Especially with a month to prepare for the bowl game. No game plan, no special plays, no new wrinkles. MSU outcoached UGA. This happens far too often for a coach that makes over 3 million a year.

ESPN announcers were saying UGA had the game wrapped up at the half. But they forgot we have the ultra conservative Richt as coach. Its bad coaching to lose a game up 16-0 at half period. Crowell is worst back on UGA’s team. He ran the ball 4 times and left with an injury. Maybe he needs to play touch football ?

Georgia is on the verge of being a great team. On the verge mind you. what will they do? Keep doing the same things that got them beat yesterday or make the changes necessary to get over the verge to be that team. Who knows, but running the ball up the middle nine thousand times and gettin nothing ain’t gone cut it. My little niece, four years old, says out loud for the whole world to hear – “why they keep running up the middle.” Good question baby. When Georgia starts playing to win instead of playing not to lose it’s sure going to help. What are you going to do Georgia? What are you going to do coach Richt? We are looking for that team.

Losing to a better team like LSU is one thing. I don’t lose a second of sleep over losses like that, but literally gift-wrapping a W for an opponent that you are better than is beyond maddening. I have been saying it for years and yesterday finally confirmed it, I strongly believe that Richt is wholeheartedly content with squatting on a double digit lead, no matter how slim it is. 10 points, 11, 12, 16, etc., he just refuses to go for the kill. How many losses will it take for him to realize this is not how you coach to WIN!?!?

People may say he tried to yesterday but MSU was just so good that they controlled UGA, blah blah blah. Bulls*%t. Neither team was able to run the ball yesterday, so what did MSU do? They aired it out 51 times because it was the only way they could advance the ball, interceptions and all, they continued to throw because it was the only thing they had success at. And what did UGA do after scoring a beautiful TD in the air? They decided to try and run it 39 times for a grand total of 51 freaking yards and punting to MSU from deep on our own side of the field only to give MSU brilliant field position each and every time!!

If that isn’t insanity then I do not know what is!!!!

Hilarous! UGA fans can’t even stay on their own same page. One week it’s CMR is doing a good job then one game later, “fire him and Bobo”. Again, the expecations are way out of line. This team did not beat a decent winning record team all year. So how do you go the the SEC championship game and beat LSU and then play the 2nd best team in the Big 10 and beat them. UGA was the 5th best team in the SEC! Face it. LSU, Alabama, Arkansas and S. Caroline were far better this year than UGA period. And next year the crying will start all over again because UGA won’t play LSU, Alabama or Arkansas again and instead plays cupcakes to make their record look good so they can cry again this time next year.

I cringe at all these “fire Bobo” comments. Your problem isn’t Bobo. It isn’t even Richt. It isn’t even McGarrity. It’s Adams. Until you have an administration that will hire folks who have experience in the jobs for which they’re hired, the Dawgs will underachieve. What do McGarrity, Richt, Bobo, Grantham and Tereshinski have in common? They were hired with the expectation of proficiency and without actual prior experience in their position.

Compare those hires to, say, LSU. AD Joe Alleva – previously Duke AD.
HC Miles – previously HC at Oklahoma State.
Steve Kragthorpe – multiple OC and QB coach positions
Greg Studrawa – previously OC at Bowling Green.
Tommy Moffett – undoubedtly the best strength and conditioning coach in the conference, possibly D-1.

See a pattern here?

Also…Richt just will not learn…you run the football and keep running it to wear defenses down. Even if it doesn’t work in the first half, it pays dividends in the second.

Bill, I think you contradict yourself. You say Bobo stubbornly tried to run up the middle. Then you admit that MSU adjusted and stopped the outside run. One thing is for certain, the line didn’t block well enough for us to have a running game. “…tried in van to run Samuel up the middle…” If the line had blocked and created a hole, it would’ve worked. Between the tackles is basic to any running game. In the end, no running game and turnovers equals a loss. You blame Bobo, I blame the biggest line in all of football that can’t open holes.

One can just as easily cast aspersions on Grantham’s D. We’re ahead 27-20 with 6:44 to play and our D allowed MSU to march down the field and tie the score.

We had a 10 win season and went to a pretty decent bowl. The loss was very disappointing, but I think the team will learn from it.

You know, I was thinking last night, if Richt had coached this way when he first got to UGA, he wouldn’t have lasted 3 seasons. I’ve never seen a coach try to get so conservative with such small leads, as he does now. If not for Grantham, we probably lose to Ole Miss, KY, and Vandy because of Richt going into Dean Smith’s 4-corners offense.

He even tried it with a 10 point lead over LSU.

I think you should do a piece on exactly why our coaching staff starts the 2nd half trying to salt the clock away…… dont you usually see that with 5 min or less left in the game….
Bottom line – the talent is there, I would rather lose a game with my foot on the gas the whole game and just getting beat by a better team then the coaching staff continue to handicap the team “thinking” something could go wrong……. If it does, this team has the talent to come back out and go down the field on anyone…. you just CANT turn over the momenum of the game being conservative and put all the pressure on a defense that shuts down everyone in the first half but spends WAY too much time holding up the fort in the second half…..
The coaches should take accountability for losing this game!!!
I would love a piece to be written on the things stated in this piece…. maybe then I could actually have a better understanding of how a team that wants to be a top 5 top 10 preseason team next year can make this happen when the coaches seem to only be top 25!!!

GO DAWGS!!!!! FIGURE IT OUT!!!!!

I have been critical of this staff all year. I took the show me results approach as well

Well once again I have been shown this coaching has no clue how to beat a top 20 team

UGA football is going nowhere with Richt but 10 win seasons every now and then.

I would trade for the Dooley 9-2, 8-3, 7-4 seasons than the 10 win we didnt beat no one garbage

And Im not a Dooley fan

At least with Dooley you could always count on a UGA team that could go out and beat anyone even if they were outmatched by the other teams talent

With Richt

You can count a team that if ranked in the top 15 UGA has not much of a chance at all to win period

This is not the fault of players. This is a “system” ploblem. Our system is broken, and until we change the individuals in charge of the system, it will not get much better. Evidently, the big money supporters of Georgia Football are happy with 9-10 wins. Nine to ten wins will get you fired at LSU or Alabama. Change the system by paying big money to get the right coach. Why do we continue to leave the system the same and expect better results? Insanity!!

In spite of Murray’s pick 6, the other costly turnover and poor kicking. We lost that game because we cannot run a lick! We are poor run blockers and we have 3-4 very average running backs – and 1 with “some” ability but it seems that he has no heart. I believe we had more run play losses or no gains, than we did runs for any positive yardage at all. It is a sad situation when a team like Georgia has to continually shift defensive backs over to the offense to get any production at all. You cannot win against a good, well coached team with a strong defense, when all you can do is throw a 60 yard bomb. They are wonderful when they work, but it happens only once in a long while. The best teams can always run the ball – especially in college. I don’t think that Bobo is the answer. No imagination or creativity and an average play caller at best. Also, we need to stop coaching so conservatively to avoid losing in games like that,and go aggressively for the win!
Let’s hope for some changes there, along with a great recruiting year, and perhaps Coach Richt getting out of his lethargic, half asleep mode on the sideline. Leadership is not always about staying “cool and collected.” We now have some fire on the defensive side (Grantham.) We need more of it on offense and at the very top.

Good post, Dawg258 (10:52).

My thinking is, if you don’t trust your QB to win those games when you have a lead, and Richt/Bobo clearly don’t, then get another QB.

Richt didn’t coach like this when he got to Athens, or either Greene changed so many plays at the line, he made Richt look like a genius.

I do enjoy however watching the trials and tribs of the UGaNation. Most, but not all of your problems could be fixed by getting rid of Mike Bobo. Don’t forget Alabama and LSU however. Georgia’s usually good, just not as good as the fans think they are. I think the bigger issue is how can you keep a MASCOT alive for more than one half a season.

UGA has never been on the same level as Bama or LSU and never will be. That is the history and it is fact. Yes we are above Kentucky and Vandy but we have never been a top-tier program like the above mentioned. UF has had a great 20 year ride but that has been recent success. UGA stunk prior to 1980 for much of the time as well. Most UGA big money people understand this and are happy being a $89,000,0000 program. UGA will struggle to ever win another NC again I predict.

GA fans are so disliked. No credit to the MSU team for playing the game. They played through their mistakes ( 80 TD pass, TD punt return, interceptions, etc), and did not give up, made THE drive when they needed to tie the game without timeouts and overcame their mistakes in OT to win the game. This game had break downs in pass coverage, interceptions and mistakes made by each team and MSU deserves credit for winning the game just as much as Ga is being blamed for losing the game.

The bottom line is until UGA gets back to being able to run the ball, these kind of losses (S Car and MSU) will happen on occasion. The offense is one dimensional at best and that, I believe is why Murray has most of his turn overs. Fix the running game, fix the problems.

Did you notice that Murray didn’t really take the blame for his performance yesterday? If you followed him on Twitter last week, you know he was very nervous and anxious about the game. After reading those posts, I knew he was going to have a bad game. His head was not in the game, but he still won’t admit it. LeMay and Hudson (or the hope of a top-flight OC) don’t have a prayer with the Richt Benevolent Society in power. I’d encourage both Mason and LeMay to transfer now. Next season will be more of the same, padding statistics against the dregs while failing to beat a top 25 team.

Not All Bad

January 3rd, 2012
11:43 am

In a way, I think being better than KY and VAN and worse than four other teams in the SEC in any given year isn’t all bad. If UGA actually had the coaching talent to beat good teams with the talent on the field, it could get real ugly real fast in the state of Georgia.
Bama, LSU, Florida and Auburn all have won national championships in recent years. Yet, you don’t see nearly as many asinine displays of “team support” as you would by knuckle-dragging UGA fans as you would if the Dawgs won a BCS championship. Let’s face it. Dawg fans are an embarrassment to the state of Georgia. And that’s really saying something considering the kind of people we elect here. Even with meager 10-win aspirations, you see the shirts, trucks, stickers everywhere you turn, and you know 95% of the people waving the banner can’t spell “matriculate. ”
In summary, careful what you wish for. If UGA did somehow come out and beat a good team next year, you wouldn’t be able to get to Athens on game day for all the broken down F-150’s clogging up GA-316. I like my Dawgs mediocre, and I like Mark Richt.

The sport-casters, fans, media, and opposing defenses are able to see the ultra-conservative and ultra-predictable play calling. Does anyone on the coaching staff at Georgia not see the problem? LSU adjusted during the half and shut down our offense. Michigan State did the same. If I remember correctly, I believe Georgia’s offense struggled in the second half on numerous games.

Does anyone on the coaching staff sense a problem with our play calling? Do they have their head in the sand? Can we please hire a new offensive coordinator and get a special teams coach? PLEASE!!!!

All UGA fans need to realize that Richt has already repeated that there will be no change in the coaching staff. He believes he will lose recruits, so expect another year of BoBo making the calls and another 3 or 4 loss season. Murray needs to be a back up QB he has failed in any game against good teams.

It’s over! We lost. Got to focus on next season. Coach BOBO needs to go back to qb coach or find another place to coach. It’s evident to most people he is over his head and has no flexibilty in play calling.

Coach Richt needs to make a change at this position and there will be a lot offensive coordinators available this year to hire. Find someone who has the tenacity and drive that Coach Grantham and his staff has!

By keeping Bobo as offensive coordinator you are doing a disservice to the other coaches, players and fan base!

It should be apparent to Davis, Gurley, Cross and Robinson how bad Georgia needs them at Running back!!!!!! Hope you guys are wearing the red and balck at Georgia next year.

If Coach Frei could get top offensive lineman they would be good because he is a good coach. We need tough people on the line!!!

I hope there’s open competition between Murray, Mason, LeMay, Bingham, Welch and Bauta next year.
Why can’t Georgia play two quarterbacks like LSU and some of the other teams, if two rise above the others and redshirt those that are close?

Georgia needs to capture a lot of their top targets and hopefully a few quality walk-on’s will show!
I hope the juniors come back and thanks to Boykins and the seniors for coming to Georgia! Thanks to Coach Grantham and his players for a successful year and bringing respect to Georgia’s defense. I honestly believe with him and his current staff at the helm, good things will happen!!!! Great job to all the defensive coaches and they definetly need to seriously be considered for pay raises, they earned it!

Coach Richt, we all love you but you don’t have a tough bone in your body! You’re simply too loyal to your offensive coordinator and quarterback when they’re having a bad day! You should at least make the fans believe you are doing everything you can to win and take Murray out when he’s having a bad day. Even he says he has to learn to throw the ball away instead of being sacked. He hasn’t learned it yet. What is there to learn?? He fumbled in the LSU game and again in the Michigan State game. Hmmm, Murray can you learn this too?? As for Bo Bo, just catch the bus!! We need an offensive coordinator, someone like Gus Malzone at Auburn who is now a head coach at Arkansas State. As for Crowell…..what is there to say? He stubbed his itty bitty toe again!! This guy doesn’t want to play! He likes watching the game on the bench. Put him in the student section. He doesn’t even need to dress out! Gee, talk about a disappointment!!! Give him some weed and he’ll be in there every play and never want to come out!!

Not going all out to move the chains and run out the clock on our last possession was a mistake. Don’t give a senior QB a chance to beat you.

Playing for the long field goal in OT was a mistake.

Murray shows a lot of guts and grit, but he has GOT to work on ball security this off season. Not just the INTs, he’s also given up more than his share of fumbles.

Just talked to dispatch at Landstar Trucking. They need an estimate of how many tanker trucks will be need this year for transporting the KoolAid from Dalton to Athens. Remember, each tanker only holds 8,000 gallons. Better get on the phone to AltamahaDawg, President of the KoolAid Club, and see if he can gauge what their requirements will be for 2012. He knows everything.

I disagree. Unrealized potential is always a greater disappointment. That is why people revert to the at least we are not Tech theme. Tech is what it is, when they lose it is no big surprise most of the time. But for GA the expectations are much greater and much more disappointing when they are not met. Just look at the volume of negative blog posts this loss has generated.

I really hate saying this but it is looking more and more like the way things are…..MEDIOCRITY! That’s not what the Bulldogs are all about! The team is loaded with talent that most teams would die for! The defense is doing an outstanding job! I noticed the enthusiasm on the sideline coming from Todd Grantham but I saw absolutely none coming from Richt whom I admire so much! During the Overtimes, the Michigan State team was fired up on the sideline and the Georgia side looked as though they were attending a funeral. Well, in reality, perhaps they knew more than we did! They were attending their own funeral and must have known it!! Talk about imploding!!! Looking back, Bo Bo, what would you have done differently to change the outcome of the game? I have a suggestion: Catch a bus!!

Bobo the Dodo deserves an @ss kickin by Grantham (and Boykin, and Tree, and Jones, and basically anyone who plays D!).

Richt has been riding an easier than normal schedule, and Grantham all season long. If he is going to ride this magic trick to disguise his mediocrity any longer, he better get a better play caller in there.

If Grantham leaves to become a HC somewhere, the crutch will be gone, and our team left naked.

Observations –

Agree with many that although A.M. is talented, something is missing. The two Int’s were killers. And a fumble! – EXECUTION

Gotta give him credit though for the drive to put us up 27-20 and gave us the chance to win after letting MS back in the game.

Hope we go into camp with a wide open QB race and not AM pre determined as the starter.

…….

The 3 play calls with 3+ minutes… can understand not wanting to give up another TO…. but or D was obviously gassed… M.S. was fired up and had momentium… We had to burn some clock there. And to run 3 plays right at their strength??? They had stopped us up the gut all afternoon other than one Malcome run on 3rd and 8. We have to be more creative in that situation. MS didnt looked gassed…..why…. because they predicted correctly what we were running and stacked the line of scrimmage! Gotta open up the O in that situation – COACHING

…..

Walsh… Just really tough luck this year and really sorry for the kid. Hope he is able to turn it around and save a pro career… But … Given where we were…. in the 1st OT…. Move the ball! Don’t settle for a 43 yard FG attempt! – COACHING

…..

At the end of that game … OT’s… MS was fired up a livving for the opportunity to take the game. Team fired up… sideline fired up…. we are all dumb struck. The D did the job in OT with an int and holding MS to fieldgoal attempts. Our O was just not into it emotionally or from a coaching standpoint to take the win!. – COACHING

….

Understand not wanting to give away another mistake/TO to loose the game …. Bit of a lack of confidence in AM is the reason…. But we have to either open up the playbook and take some risk… not be so predictable…. OR Man up and GATA. Obvious to me at that point we were not in a GATA mode… So the choice is OPEN it up and take the chances. COACHING

A prediction

January 3rd, 2012
1:01 pm

I am a UGA man, class of 71 & 73. I do not hob knob with the wealthy contributors, beyond one very old friend from HS and UGA days. He is only one that I know and have for over 55 years since we were in first/second grade.

The old guard UGA crowd ( my generation) are not happy with how this last 1.5 games turned out. LSU game was fabulous in the first half BUT they celebrated at half time with out of control screaming and rah rahs and the coaches let them do that and in the SECOND HALF of the LSU game, they were burned out and drained emotionally. These kids ( Aaron MUrray) do not know how to deal with high emotions and channel them. LSU and MSU showed us that. Murrray becomes an emotional wreck in big games with DUMB, DUMB throws. His tream mates pick up on his panic, they hear it in his manner of speaking in the huddle, his cadance and side line chatter and his awful NAIL BITING.

THAT deficiency comes from COACHING. Richt and his entire team except for CTG need to go. Richt HAS TWO more years, contractually. I see AD- Greg McGarity dropping a bomb and shutting down the extension negotiations UNTIL next year, to see if UGA can return and WIN BIG in the SEC CG. That would still allow Richt another year 2013 to coach. THen, they can reward the man.

I also expect Richt to be told to FIRE MIKE BOBO or DEMOTE HIM and possibly McClendon, his running back coach. He can continue to be head recruiter.

I expect one or two of these bombshells to be heard within 4-10 days from UGA’s AD offices.

Bill, excellent assessment of UGA’s situation (bowl game and season). Really disappointed with Crowell. Yes, I’m aware that he is only an 18 year old kid and needs to mature and he deserves credit for some wins. IMO he should be reshirted for a year and given a chance to work on academics, mental/pyhscial conditioning and doing things “the Georgia Way” (other problems). His value to the team is being discounted by the fact that he is a problem. No, Crowell had nothing to do with the Outback Bowl lose and that’s the problem. I’ve changed my mind about him wearing # 1, however there should be a ? added.

UGA’s inability to adjust (offensive and special team)playing calling and execution to “real time” game conditions is frustrating to watch.

I’m afraid UGA will lose Grantham. Murray is a good qb, but there are times he should be allowed/required to sit on the bench and collect himself while watching another UGA qb play.

These players make the incredible plays because they are great players. And Blackmon from Oklahoma State never breaks off a route when their slow QB is flushed from the pocket?

And to answer you question of a couple of months ago, AltamahaDawg, Richt didn’t forget how to coach. There are just a bunch of better coaches in the SEC, and other places (UCF, MSU, Boise, etc) than when Richt got started.

Nothing is easy about UGA schedule next year if we continue to beat ourselves offensively and lackluster special teams play. Our offensively philosophy has to be completely overhauled if we expect to compete in high profile games. Defense can only carry a team so far!

January 3rd, 2012

The only runs that worked was when the entire line pulled left and Malcome ran right (away from the MSU defenders). Otherwise, it was run up middle for 3 yard loss and run left for no gain all game…
A retarded DC would know that when the line (TE) is stacked left that you are running left. I saw the tackles for losses BEFORE they happened.

January 3rd, 2012

I hope that UGA AD- Greg McGarity and Dr. Adams RE THINK their decision to extend Richt. Here is why: He already has a fine contract. We can praise him in the papers, we can rave about him from the office of President of the U and all of that, for “window dressing.” RICHT ALREADY HAS A FABULOUS CONTRACT, so why extend it right now?

This bowl collapse and the LSU second half collapse are symtomatic of a team that lacks passion, grit, fire and a true understanding of the word committment. This is coaching.

Also, QB Aaron Murray cannot win at a high level in the SEC. He is simply too emotional and he chokes big time with his ill timed throws or his DUMB THROWS in bad situations that always HURT UGA so badly. Enough of AAron Murray and his EMPTY STATS.

Wait until the end of the season next fall and if UGA is AGAIN IN the SEC CG and WINS IT, then give him a rousing ovation publically and add some $$ and extend him for two or three more years AND OF COURSE, extend CTG with tons and tons of bread.

If CTG leaves UGA and Richt has a huge NEW 4 or 6 or 7 year contract ……………..UGA will be very, very sorry this next time around. Richt simply lacks the real deep in your belly fire to win BIG in the SEC and in college football and Coach Bobby Bowdon stated that when Richt was initially hired by UGA and Dooley and we are seeing why now.

DO NOT EXTEND MARK RICHT. HE ALREADY HAS A FAT DEAL. MAKE HIM EARN ANOTHER FAT DEAL.

1 td versus 2 ints ain’t good friends. Murray is regressing instead of progressing. That pass to Bennett was 5 yards behind him right into the hands of a MSU db.
