Big questions temper optimism as Dogs look ahead to 2012

Georgia returns a lot of talent, including Aaron Murray, but still has some major concerns to deal with in 2012. (Associated Press)

A week ago, in the wake of the SEC’s 2012 schedule being announced, optimism was running wild in the Bulldog Nation.

This week, after watching the Dogs again collapse in the second half amid continued problems with special teams play and establishing a running game, many Georgia fans are tempering their optimism.

The Dogs still may start out next season as a Top 10 team based on a load of returning talent and an even more favorable schedule than this year’s, but there will be some big challenges, especially if the team is hit with major losses to the NFL. Orson Charles going pro would hurt, but the chance of the defense possibly losing two or three underclassmen is more worrisome.

Meanwhile, the offensive line, which was good enough against middling teams this season but gave up 33 sacks and faltered against the four best defenses Georgia faced, will lose three senior starters and will have little returning experience.

The Dogs will have to replace both their placekicker and their punter and still haven’t solved the problem of spotty special teams play overall.

Record-setting QB Aaron Murray will return but has some ball security problems to deal with (his turnovers when pressured or scrambling played a major role in three of the Dogs’ four losses), and Georgia could lose what little backup experience it has at the position if Hutson Mason decides to transfer.

And then there’s the running game, which went from inconsistent to pathetic late in the season as Isaiah Crowell found myriad ways to stay off the field. The bright spot there in 2012 is the arrival of Keith Marshall and probably at least one other freshman tailback, but we learned this season that signing a five-star recruit at that position is no guarantee of long-term success.

So, yes, Georgia reeled off 10 wins in a row this season and took the SEC East but as Mark Richt said, “our guys had a good year, not a great year,” losing to the four teams they played that ended up ranked in the Top 20 while getting their wins against teams that finished the season unranked.

All of which raises this question: Were the 2011 Dogs that much better than the 2010 team that finished 6-7, or was the SEC East title more a function of scheduling?

I think the answer is a qualified yes, the Dogs were much improved — mainly on defense. But they remained, as Richt noted, far from a great team. There’s no denying that a schedule that didn’t include the toughest teams from the SEC West probably was the biggest factor in Georgia’s 2011 turnaround.

They’ll get that break again next season. But it’s going to take more than that for Richt and company to improve on a 10-4 record.

in order to improve, changes must be made. No changes, no big wins

1.) Hire an NFL caliber offensive coordinator and give him full control of the offense just like Grantham does with the D
2.) Keep Mike Bobo on staff as QB coach and recruiter
3.) fire our running backs coach and replace him with a coach who understands and teaches the importance of securing the football and running downhill
4.) Place Richt in charge of special teams and play scholarship players and go back to making this unit a difference maker
5.) Throw all the money you can get to secure Todd Grantham
6.) Give Richt a 2 year extension ONLY if he agrees with all of the above.

The O-line losses, Murray’s poor performance against above average defenses and losing Boykin and possibly 2 others on defense has me concerned about this teams performance and quite honestly the coaching staffs adjustments against winning teams. Everyone wants to blame Bobo, but he does not call a single play or prepare a game plan without Richt’s approval. Luckily Grantham bailed the team out against the worst Gator team since Emmitt Smith or Richt might be gone already. My question is, if you were McGarrity would you give Richt a contract extension which would increase the buyout if he were to fire him or wait 1 more year to see further needed progress?

The only improvement was on defense. Without that, we would have lost more games.

The offense did not improve at all. In some aspects, it got worse. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what is wrong with the offense, and until Bobo is replaced these problems will persist. It’s Willie Martinez all over again.

Fair analysis. Murray under pressure has been a liability season before the this past season. He has consistently turned the ball over in the big games that have cost us dearly. Not much improvement there. The offensive line for the past several seasons has not done a very good job in run blocking. It was the glaring weakness in the MSU game. This would explain why 5 star RBs are consistently swamped and smashed at the line of scrimmage. I don’t blame the running backs for not wanting to become pulp. Running for Georgia is like a death sentence. Maybe the OL replacements will be better run blockers. If not, the DAWGS will not be an upper tier team. Boykin was sensational he’ll be a huge loss when he goes. I’ve been most impressed with the improvement of the defense. With Jenkins in there they have been pretty stout against everyone we’ve played. Ironically special teams which were supposed to be a strength cost us some important games. But I thought that they improved over the last half of the season, except for the field goal kicker. Poor Walsh what a great career but a downer of a final season. Go DAWGS!

Bama and LSU will both come back on the schedule nlt 2013, so 2012 will be Richt’s last shot for the forseeable future. No Championship in 2012 and Richt should be fired. Quit the fire Bobo already; I agree with Just Sayin…., Richt approves EVERY play Bobo calls!

while there are always concerns about replacing players, when you breakdown who is leaving and potentially, it doesn’t look so bad. Orson should go. with the success of his style of TE in the NFL right now, he should jump. That leaves the door open for Jay Rome who won’t get the double teams that Orson got this year bacause of the big play threats outside. While losing Orson is big, it should not be that hard to overcome. Even though 3 seniors leave the O-Line, does it matter? They started to play well as a unit only when the schedule got easier and i have let to watch them dominate a well coached team. I am excited to see what youth can do (I would be more excited if Will Friend could teach them to knock somebody off the ball on 4th and 1). On Defense, the only concern is Rambo. Boyken has to go, but there should be enough depth to replace 1 DB, but Rambo’s experience and how he learned to cover a bit better as the year wore would be missed. That being said, the LBs will be the best in the nation with Jarvis taking a backseat only to Ogletree (Defensive MVP next year). Dawgs win plenty next year, but can only be SPECIAL if the coaching staff learns that games are 4 quarters long

First of all: Losing our kicker will be a blessing.

Second: If we get the best running backs in the world, Bobo’s stupid offense will not allow them to be successful. Why can’t CMR watch Alabama and LSU and see that our running offense is horrible. Who coaches the QB to point the ball to the running back as he goes back to hand off?

UGA will be fine in every other area. Murray needs to grow up and quit being a choke artist.

Bobo is the major reason to NOT be optimistic.

As fans, we need to manage our expectations a little better. I remember in 2008, when we were preseason No. 1, everyone said “Well, Georgia might win 10 games, but their schedule is very hard.” That prediction by most pundits turned out to be true. However, us fans were surprised. The next year, people KNEW we would be struggling with Joe Cox at quarterback. However, us fans were surprised by the outcome. Then last year with a freshmen quarterback and new defense, and many new pieces in general, not even I thought we would have a 6-7 season, but we new all those factors would be difficult. 10-4 was about what I predicted for this year. Most people had us losing the first 2 games. I always genuinely thought Boise and SC were better teams. LSU was obvious. Maybe I thought we would beat Michigan State. But our record this year wasn’t surprising. Sorry guys.

Richt needs to go. He plays favorites, always has, always will. His steadfast commitment to Murray is not warrented. He needs to throw open the QB competition or Hutson needs to transfer.

No reason Boo should have spent the entire season inactive. We should have given the other RB more PT early in the season as Crowell was not having the success that Richt seemed to think he was. Keeping a fresh back in the game makes sense when none of them outclass the others.

Richt needs to admit that Bobo is not getting the job done and quit playing favorites again, didn’t he learn anything from the Willie Martinez fiasco? Same ole, same ole every year. We need a new coach.

Exactly WHY do we have ongoing execution problems? Coaches point to lack of execution for every loss (and no other reason). What are they doing to get better execution from the players? They recruited the guys of their choosing, taught them and coached them up. Yet it’s always the players’ fault for not executing. And the coaches have no responsibility?

All he knows is run up the middle on first down and LONG passes on second and third down. We have quit using the screen pass to slow down the rush, we don’t throw to the tight ends or fullback any more. They are kept in to block for the second and third down long developing pass plays. Get rid of Bobo and find a real OC that can get the job done.

Richt threw away a chance at a bowl win and at a potential preseason Top 10 ranking so that he could give Blair Walsh “a moment” (as many of you may have heard Matt Chernoff surmising yesterday).

Does anyone still think that Mark Richt deserves to be the head coach when he puts the feelings of one player ahead of the feelings of the rest of the team and the good of the program? Like he did when he put the feelings of his friend Willie Martinez ahead of the good of the program.

What a disgrace.

SEC east title was without a doubt a function of scheduling. Lost to the best team you played in the east South Carolina. Beat a bad tennessee team. Were lucky to beat a bad florida team. If that florida team had been anything like ones from the past we would have lost considering how we started that game. Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Coastal Carolina, New Mexico State, and Ole Miss are all terrible, and we were lucky to beat Vanderbilt. If Miss State had any kind of offense we would have lost to them too b/c we let them hang around in that game and didn’t go for the kill.

There were two games all season that i remember the offense looking like it had some sort of rhythm to it. South Carolina and Auburn. Other than that it has been a really hard season to watch. Richt isn’t the answer but I’ll settle for hiring a new offensive coordinator and moving bobo to only qb coach.

Although I am no fan of Bobo, I’d like to see UGA get a real strength & conditioning coach. Tereshinski is not going to cut it. In each of the 4 losses, UGA’s collapses can be mostly attributed to inferior conditioning. I’d argue that substandard coaching & execution are also to blame, but secondary to weak 2nd half conditioning.

There is not a single concern today that wasn’t very obvious in the few seconds before that FG attempt sailed right. We did not discover one thing new in that game.

Yes, every possible demon we have had all year all roared up in the final game, but not one of them are a surprise.

Anybody changing their tune now simple was overly hyped before or overly emotional charged now.

Still doesn’t change my suggestion of hiring a NFL caliber OC and let Richt run special teams and let the OC have full control of the offense. It wouldn’t hurt for it to be someone Grantham knows because there were several games where it was OBVIOUS that our OC and DC were not on the same page

1. Special teams will not be corrected. Richt is too stubborn to hire a Special Teams coach.
2. Running game went downhill after Ealey transferred, might have gone 12-2 with Ealey, he wasn’t injury prone like Crowell, and didn’t run out of gas in the 4th quarter like all the other backs do. Ealey scored 11 td’s in 2010, the entire line up opf RB’s couldn’t replace that total, no surprise, Richt made a big mistake running off Ealey.
3. Mettenberger would have performed much better than Murray has. So would Mason or Lemay. Murray is too turnover oriented, really just chucks the gameplan and starts making wild runs which result in fumbles in last 2 games (really going to convert a 3rd and 17 on a QB run) and terrible decision making when he gets tired, like 2nd half of SC, LSU and Mich St games where he threw multiple interceptions.
4. Team lacks mental toughness. Mich’s coach brought in Navy Seals to train leaders, Richt brings in an older trainer grandfather figure named Joe T? Too many missed field goals (14), too many turnovers under pressure, team just doesn’t handle pressure well. And Richt has no plan to change that.

You are correct with the problems identified. The way we used Orson Charles in the Outback Bowl insures he will turn pro. Murray needs to work on looking for secondary receivers when the primary is covered. He “stares down” the primary receiver and db’s watsh his eyes. As far as Crowell goes he has demonstrated that he is soft. He needs to transfer to a D-2 program where the defenses don’t hit as hard, what a great disappointment he has become. Our OL once again proved up against a good DL they are not capable of run blocking. I know you need good backs to have a running game but you first must have an OL that opens holes, we need big improvement in the OL play.

What can you say about Bobo that has not already been said. He is not an SEC OC. I lay the blame on CMR, I am completely convienced that we will never get to the level of Ala. and LSU until CMR makes a change at OC. Bobo coaches and calls plays not to lose instead of coaching and calling plays to win. It is sad to see the blinders that apparently are on CMR when it comes to Bobo. Look how long it took him to dump Martinez.

CMR has to establish a running game to succeed next year and I am not sure he can with Bobo and McLendon coaching the offense. Coach Dooley said it best, when you throw the ball three things can happen and two of them are bad.

Since Mark Richt has been the HC at Georgia six times an SEC team has won the National Championship (Auburn was robbed in ‘04). There have been three undefeated seasons, potentially a fourth. Multiple teams with only one loss records. Mark Richt has not accomplished either of those once. It’s not for a lack of talent. I don’t remember the last quality win a Mark Richt coached team has had. When was the last time his team beat a team they weren’t supposed to, or nobody predicted they would beat?

Losing Charles is not as big a blow I think. First It forces Murray to work through his progression of reads better. Second, Charles’ offensive prowess was mitigated by his horrible blocking so lets stop fooling ourselves. How often did you see him properly stop anyone. If the ball wasn’t going to him, then the defender more often than not was in the backfield looking for Murray. Personally I think Lynch will be much better along with Rome. Will Friend has a lot of work ahead of him to fix this anemic O-Line. Finally, I’m off the OC bandwagon. I’m stumping for Jeff Brohm to get this job. His main credentials are he coached under Bobby Petrino and he can run a pro-style offense which is what we want here at UGA.

Is it true that the play calls are vetted by Richt before they are run? Is this the reason that we in the Bulldog Nation feel that the offense is so limited?

I wonder how much leeway Murray has to change the playcall at the line. If the Dawgs come out in a 4 WR/1 RB set with a draw play called and the defense still has 7 in the box, can he audible to a pass? He knows there’s no way the play will work when he sees the defense. I know he does alot of gesturing, but that could just be decoy stuff because he knows the play is doomed. At this point with our offense, who knows?
Also, although Richt has veto power on the playcalls, but by the time it comes down from Bobo, the right personnel are on the field, the play is signalled in and then called in the huddle, his only option is to call a timeout. Sure he can direct the strategy between series, but thats about it.

Georgia will be just fine in 2012. If Charles leaves, we have Lynch and 5* Rome available. If Washington leaves, we have 5* Drew ready to go. I do not think losing Rambo is a big deal. He is out of position several times a game and we have some pretty good safeties ready to step up. Branden Smith is not ready to leave, but there also we have Marshall and Swann who are ready for playing time. Murray is going to be a great QB and he will have another years experience. The O-line is a concern. I think they were the biggest O-line in football for a reason. They were just not in good shape. They were big and slow. Anderson is a DGD but he missed a ton of assignments and was too slow. We will miss Glenn and the leadership of Jones. Our O-line needs to be better at picking up blocking assignments. The TB position will shine if the O-line learns to run block. I am excited about 2012. There were no repeats in 2011 that took place in 2010, i.e., Colorado, Miss. St., UF or UCF.

CMR had to know that he couldnt move the ball running in OT. had averaged 1.3 yards per rush for the game and MS was stacking the box.

He had to choose between:

Opening up the offense and risking another AM turnover.

OR

Setting up for a 40 +/- yard FG attempt by Walsh, who has been shakey at best.

At that point I think it was a coin toss.

AM is a great kid and does have talent but the best thing CMR can do for this team is sincerly open the QB competition. No starter named till gametime this fall. AM has shown that he has a problem securing the ball in pressure situations on many occasions. Very skilled, but does nnot have that IT factor at this point in time to will us to win against the tough teams. Inconsistent.

Great job on that late 4Q drive to put us up 27-20… but the INT’s gave MS the chance to win and they took it.

I do not think that the players left anything on the field. They played their hearts out. The strategic mistakes that were made by coaches on the offensive side of the ball. It wasn’t the players calling those plays. Murray made his usual bonehead plays but he gave it his all. The problem was leaving him in there after those pics. He gets rattled. The problem was continuing to rely upon a running game that wasn’t going anywhere. The problem was coaching not the players’ effort.

I think that it was Todd who led Penn State to the last play victory over the last Herschel team in the 1981 National Championship game.

GA’s OL was outmatched when they went up against defenses that were their equals which was evident in UGA’s 4 losses. However, the dawgs OC and HC didn’t do much to counter the opposing D. They lined up and continued to run into the middle w/the same results. Until GA can produce an OL that dominates good defenses they will have to change their Offensive strategy. Their current way of running the O has become dated. They need an infusion of new ideas on offense. Just look at the D and how they’ve become one of the best since TG entered the pic. Same needs to be done for the O and if the current staff doesn’t know how get someone else that can.

The 2011 GA D has been the difference maker in 2011 from 2010 disaster season. Take away the great play of GA’s crop of young receivers and the O doesn’t look much better than last years team. They still cannot run the ball and their backs for the most part are still inconsistent as last seasons crop. The QB play may have statistically gotten better yet the mistakes and TO’s at that position have gotten worse and played a major reason in the 4 losses this season. Special Teams was a disaster and it showed in the 4 losses. That leaves coaching. Again, the only true improvement in that dept was the D which was clearly better this season then 2010 as TG entered his 2d season as DC. The glaring deficiency is the O side of the ball. It hasn’t gotten any better in years even w/the likes of Stafford and Moreno, et al. If indeed Mike Bobo was soley responsible for the playcalling in this years bowl and the other 3 losses then there needs to be a change. If the HC had anything to do w/those inept decisions then he must also be held accountable. If not, the 2012 season will be a repeat performance of this season. They’ll beat teams of lesser ability but find themselves losers to ranked teams where they were outplayed and outcoached.

I think losing Bean and maybe Jones will be a good thing. Maybe not Glenn so much, but he was playing out of position.

What I really can’t stand is that we are probably stuck with Murray for another 2 years. That’s not all bad, but when Murray starts having a bad game it doesn’t go away and he get’s in a major funk. And our coaching staff just will not let another QB play if Murray goes bad. Things will have to get terrible before the staff actually gives someone else a shot at QB.

You seem like a nice guy and you have undying love for your school, UGA. But it has to upsetting to keep writing stories about what UGA will become or do next year. In my suggestion, here are the few things that UGA will need to do.

1. Accept the fact that you are a 2nd tier team, for now
2. Play anybody, anywhere……..beef up your OCC-SEC East is down
3. Realize that when people talk about the SEC, usually they are talking about the top tier teams.

Look at all of the games this year that our offense and special teams cost us or almost cost us the game. We got lucky at Florida.

I like CMR he is a good coach and a great man….After 11 years a decision must be made…Do we want to be a good program or a great one? If the answer is good then keep what you have and be satisfied with the way the program is, as is….If the answer is great then changes must be made, and that includes the head coach. Teams take on the persona of the one in charge. Coach Richt is a good coach, and I am starting to think sadly, not a great one. After 11 years there is one constant. We have made changes at both co-ordinator spots(Richt used to be his own OC) and at many position coaches….What else can it be??

Here is what should happen at UGA. The AD must mandate that a commission be set up to study all the offensive stats and plays of the 2011 season. Compare the plays that were called with potentially successful plays, based on the defense that was run, the down & distance, and the game situation. Create a play-calling chart for every possible situation UGA might face in the 2012 season. UGA could then set up a voting hot-line like on American Idol and allow every genius offensive mind on this board to quickly call in and vote for the next play, based on the selections presented by the commission. Then, when it does not work, you caould all write in and demand that Richt fire YOU! After that, when the defense has a bad game and you all want Grantham fired, you could do the same thing for the defense and allow you to vote on all stunts, blitzes, and coverages.

Look this program needed a LOT of work coming into this year, and had a lot of players and attitudes that needed washing out. The O Line was no exception. These are Stacy Searles’ guys who have chronically underachieved. They will likely not be missed. The kicking game wont be either. It is stupid to think a bunch of freshman RBs were going to turn the running game around on their own. Odds are they weren’t going to pay bid dividends until next year or the year after anyway. The fans want instant gratification, but this program is definitely headed in the right direction:

1) This team is indeed better than last year. They took care of the games they were supposed to win (until the bowl game which they were technically favored in although most “experts” picked MSU). Last year they lost 4 games against the type of teams they beat this year (UF, Miss St., Colorado, and UCF).

2) No one should blame this team for losing to Boise or LSU. They would have to be a national title contender to beat them. South Carolina? OK they blew that badly, but its still to a good team. Michigan St., however, had the best conference record of the Big 10 and was 3 pts away from beating Wisconsin for a second time and going to the Rose Bowl. That was basically an OT loss to a BCS team. Frustrating, but not something to hang your head over.

Last year they were a bad team. This year they moved up to good. If they make any improvement at all for next year, they will be on the verge of being great. Turning around a program takes time. UGA is moving in the right direction.

You know… at times we say on these blogs that UGA needs to run the ball more. Well my take has been that we can’t run the ball! And I really dont blame our RB’s. Yes, unstable there this season but any of these guys are talented enough to move the ball if there are some holes opened up. The good defensive teams absolutly smothered our RB’s in my opinion. handing the ball to a RB was like setting the ball on a tee in most cases; no where to go!!!

Vanilla running plan or OL not moving people… I think its predictable running plan allows teams to stack the box and we can block them… then our passing attack is not a big enough threat to cause the D to back off.

A couple of other points I forgot:

1) Murray is just a sophomore who is getting little or no help from the running game. Too many 3rd and long situations which is compounding the mistakes. He will be better next year for sure.

2) Bobo needs to do a better job finding ways to gain positive yardage. If the running game isnt working, be creative instead of constantly running up the gut for no gain. It puts Murray and the line in too many bad situations and makes the offense far too predictable. He tends to start games being creative, but needs to continue that for 4 quarters.

3) UGA’s losses (other than South Carolina) were to some very veteran ball clubs with Senior leadership. Kellen Moore, Kurt Cousins, Jefferson/Lee for LSU…all senior leaders. How many times did you hear about a 5th year Senior making a play for MSU? A lot by my memory. Urban Meyer didnt win more than ten games or even win the East with his young team led by Tebow. UGA is young. This was not a shameful season by any means.

in order to improve, changes must be made. No changes, no big wins

1.) Hire an NFL caliber offensive coordinator and give him full control of the offense just like Grantham does with the D
2.) Keep Mike Bobo on staff as QB coach and recruiter
3.) fire our running backs coach and replace him with a coach who understands and teaches the importance of securing the football and running downhill
4.) Place Richt in charge of special teams and play scholarship players and go back to making this unit a difference maker
5.) Throw all the money you can get to secure Todd Grantham
6.) Give Richt a 2 year extension ONLY if he agrees with all of the above

Spot on Dawgn Lex. Bobo needs to be demoted to QB coach but then promoted to head recruiter as almost all of these recruits love Bobo.

Richt was once in charge of special teams and we were rather good then, actually went after a couple punts and blocked them and field goals too. Its something that we have been lacking ever since WV faked a second kick against us in the Sugar Bowl when it was in Atlanta, to seal the game. Its like they have never practiced for a fake punt in their life, and every team out there can see that about us. Richt needs to take control once again and get after it.

As for Richts extension he needs at least 3 years. That will give the recruits for 2012 and 2013 piece of mind that he will be there for their entire 4 years. 2 years almost seems like we dont trust Richt to continue the turn around.

I agree with getting rid of Bmac and it needs to be done as soon as signing day comes and goes. He has no business at that spot to begin with.

And most def get a new OC form the pro level. With this recipe the ship gets completely righted and we are on a path to be “GREAT”

Bill … your points are very valid. Our special teams played directly onto 3 of our losses as well as turnovers by Murray. In order for us to go to the next level, we must be able to run the football and take the pressure off Murray to carry the offense through throwing the football. A consistent running game will make Murray a much better quarterback ( and he is already pretty good). I am not a Bobo basher; however, having been an offensive coordinator and high school coach for over 30 years, I have consistently been frustrated by (1) his inablity or desire to adjust game plans throughout the game as defenses have adjusted to what we are doing; (2) his lack of imagination and diversity in offensive game plan; (3) his consistent ultra-conservatism when we get a lead with an apparent belief that the defense will win the game …. i.e. a lack of killer instinct to put teams away. I respect him as a QB coach and a valuable member of the staff, but, in my opinion, we will never be a consistent contender to win the SEC and be in the hunt for national championships as long as he is our offensive coordinator.

Blues dog – “Bobo is not the problem.

30 points against Mich St & 42 against South Carolina SHOULD be enough to get a win.”

Stats are misleading …

The Defense scored 2 points and the kick return by Sp team was another 7. So the offense actually scored 21 points.

The offense gave up 7 points on the int return and then another INT set up another 7. …. so can we say the offense gave up 10.5 points?

So the NET gain by the offense was 10.5 points in this game.??? Is that fair to say?

Then when the chips are down with 3+ minutes left, the D comes up with the int to preserve the win… we thought! We run 3 plays on offense and gain 2 yards and burn about 60 seconds off the clock to give MS the chance to tie the game in regulation.

Then in 3 OT’s, gain a total of zero yards.

Really concerned about the offense next season. The O line has got to play better and needs depth, otherwise nothing else matters. The running game also has to be improved for the Dawgs to get and keep a high ranking. But if the line can’t block and protect, and the backs can’t produce, then it doesn’t matter what happens with Murray. It won’t be good. And don’t be so sure that Murray has the position locked down;

Maybe for success in 2012 UGA should only schedule games with other schools who did not have winning records this season but you can’t play
Coastal Carolina every week. They would consistently win the East. No matter how many sacks, interceptions or fumbles Murray makes he would look great. Other suggestions might include not allowing field goals since the kicker can’t make them. No special team plays; no rushing -passing only please; publish UGA’s offensive game plan every week since other teams would already know anyhow.
Insanity really is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Please do something – anything as we sit by and watch UGA football continue it’s slide into becoming a mid-level program.

1. Special teams will not be corrected. Richt is too stubborn to hire a Special Teams coach.
2. Running game went downhill after Ealey transferred, might have gone 12-2 with Ealey, he wasn’t injury prone like Crowell, and didn’t run out of gas in the 4th quarter like all the other backs do. Ealey scored 11 td’s in 2010, the entire line up opf RB’s couldn’t replace that total, no surprise, Richt made a big mistake running off Ealey.
3. Mettenberger would have performed much better than Murray has. So would Mason or Lemay. Murray is too turnover oriented, really just chucks the gameplan and starts making wild runs which result in fumbles in last 2 games (really going to convert a 3rd and 17 on a QB run) and terrible decision making when he gets tired, like 2nd half of SC, LSU and Mich St games where he threw multiple interceptions.
4. Team lacks mental toughness. Mich’s coach brought in Navy Seals to train leaders, Richt brings in an older trainer grandfather figure named Joe T? Too many missed field goals (14), too many turnovers under pressure, team just doesn’t handle pressure well. And Richt has no plan to change that.

Dawgs won 10 games this year for one reason. Superior athletes playing weak opponents. When matched with equal or superior talent, Dawgs lose. Also, Richt/Bobo refuse to juice up the offense with any changes. Very easy to scheme for. MSU knew our LB’s were trying to get to the QB, so they sent their WR’s deep to take our DB’s away, and hit the short passes with TE’s and RB’s. worked very well…..But hats off to the D. Great year. We don’t have the depth and when Richt/Bobo are nothing but 3 and outs in the second half, the D gets exposed….as most D’s would.Looks like Richt is here to stay. Our only hope is that McGarity ” forces” the obvious changes needed for that extension.

Bad timing or bad management. We have/had no depth on OL and very little on defense.

Someone on a earlier blog talked about all the walkons getting scholarships the past year and questioned as to why we have no depth. We have no players in the wings.

***************************************************************************************************

DawginLex, you are 1,000% correct!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They should change that points against stat as it does not adequately project what the defense has given up; just like if a quarterback throws a good pass and the receiver pops it up in the air and it gets picked, that shouldn’t go on the QB. Now I have no idea on how this could be done, but, if it was like that, UGA’s defense points against would have probably been in the 14-15 ppg range this year!

Abnerish

January 4th, 2012

1) The offensive scheme did a poor job accounting for the defenders. #2 was constantly in the backfield untouched. He wasn’t beating anyone physically, he was simply unblocked play after play. The coaches were not able to fix this problem.

2) In the rare instance that we actually put a helmet on #2, he beat our guy pretty consistently.

3) Aaron Murray’s two interceptions were not exactly poor throws or bad decisions. The first one was a miscommunication between him and King. That’s gonna happen. All you can do is learn from those. The 2nd INT was actually a tipped pass. The blame for that falls on the OL. Not Murray’s fault. that pass would’ve probably been completed had it not been tipped.

4) Before anyone thinks I’m just a Murray apologist, I do think that his play in the 2nd half and OT was pretty pathetic. He seemed to get flustered (as did the whole team) when MSU started to come back.

5) Hopefully, Richt will learn from this and remember that playing not to lose tends to do just the opposite. He has a very good QB that generally makes good decisions with the ball. Put your trust in him. Instead, he chose to trust the OL and our RBs and (for whatever reason) Blair Walsh. I am hopeful that someone showed him a tape of the Oklahoma State – Stanford game. OSU did not hesitate to trust their QB to make the right decision.

Well, after having a couple of days to get over it…you are right on, Bill. We have a lot of questions to answer as the new season begins. I haven’t been a Murray basher through it all, but there are some serious problems with his ball security which literally cost us the USC and MSU games. Hate it for Walsh, know he is hurting. I’d like to see CMR open up the QB competition in the spring just for kicks. As for CMB, yes, we are way too predictable and conservative at the end of games, which again costs us, but the offense regularly scores 30 to 40 points a game, so something is going right here. Let’s hope this year has taught the staff some valuable lessons and everybody GATA next year. This loss hurt, bad…let’s make somebdy pay next year!

“The Dogs will have to replace both their placekicker and their punter and still haven’t solved the problem of spotty special teams play overall.”

Walsh won’t be missed.

Drew Butler’s production declined from a whopping 48.1 yards per punt in ‘09 to 44.5 in ‘10 to 44.3 in ‘11. And though he was 11th in punting average in ‘11, UGA was 97th in net punting due to its horrific punt return defense.

We would be better off with a Stryzinski or Koenen-type, booting a high 40-yarder for a fair catch.

Chris Rude made the point that Richt probably wanted Walsh to kick the winning FG and leave his career with better memories in the minds of UGA fans. I bet he is right.

That is NO WAY to run a football team.

If Richt’s main goal is to make an impact on his players, I have the perfect solution: make Richt the team chaplain, and find a real football coach who has the drive to win a championship.

Personally I love Mark Richt and thank him for the first 7 years at UGA but in no way has he recently earned the respect of his peers, he has lost control of the Dawg and is rapidly losing the Dawgnation!

We can have top 10 recuiting classes year end and year out but if we aren’t filling our needs we will always be a 3rd class team. We have 8 kickers on this team yet still screw up three field goals in one game. Richt and Beamer need to have lunch soon to talk about fixing their kicking games after those Michigan boys got late Christmas presents of wins in their bowl games. Playing Mason more this year would have helped Murray but it didn’t happen.If Mason is convinced to stay and take a red shirt he’ll wind up like Gray and just be another wasted tallent that died on the bench at UGA. Having Charles in the game was like having a twelve gauge shotgun in your hands while you watch someone rob your house. Not going to do any good unless you use it.

A mobile lineman can use strategy and quickness to open holes and give good pass protection. Sure, some good muscle weight is important, but big guts with no mobility won’t get it.

Then after LSU, you were popping off that you won the first half, and next year, you will be in the running for a MNC. The lead up to the bowl game had you DWAG fans delirious when UGA successfully had Alabama removed from your schedule next year. Now after the MSU game, you have finally come to the conclusion that your DWAGS really do suck. Enjoy the off-season DWAG fans, it ought to be fun!

Blaming all the offensive woes on Bobo is naive. The head coach has a head-set on and knows what is being called. If we can sit on a couch in a living room and know what play should be called, why doesn’t the head coach? He’s supposed to be in charge. Heck, if the defense is playing too conservatively, wouldn’t you expect the head coach to go to the DC and say something like “get after their asses” or “call a blitz to put some pressure on that sucker?”

Come on people, the head coach is responsible, not the coordinators! Do you really think Bobo decided to not even try to score in overtime and put the whole thing on a kicker who has been an absolute head case this season? That’s on CMR and NOBODY ELSE! How many of us were literally hollering at the TV saying don’t put it on the kicker? I know I was. This is not rocket science. The whole last 5 minutes of regulation and over time was exhibit A as to why we will never be a real contender until changes are made. You can not play scared. We play not to lose, which, as most of us know, means you.., well…, end up losing.

Not sure the O-line was too big, but I never thought being “big” was in itself some of predictor as many made it out to be. I think we played who we had, and they happen to be big, but if a smaller guy could have beat one out, he’d have been in there. I would think the key is to have several to rotate, and even if there is “too big”, you could work with that. Biggest and play all game, we know how that turns out.

Dawg Tired, your post is naive. There is more to being the offensive coordinator than calling the plays during the game. Bobo is responsible for the entire offense 365 days a year. He is ultimately responsible for making sure that everyone from the quarterback to the center are doing their jobs. Bobo has never been able to establish any kind of running game whatsoever unless Knowshon Moreno was running the ball. It is Bobo’s job to figure out how to run the football effectively. He has failed.

I don’t buy the idea that Bobo is just running Mark Richt’s offense. You have short memories. The offense that we have seen the past couple of years is radically different than the offense that we saw in Richt’s early years. We didn’t rely on long bombs down the field to score points like we do now. We were plodding and methodical. We now have a big play offense. If we cannot connect on the big plays we have nothing. In Richt’s early years the stats weren’t flashy but we could hold on to the ball and grind down the opposing defense. We have absolutely no ability to do that anymore. This is not the Mark Richt offense that we used to see. Bobo has turned us in to a soft as linen flag football team.

Thanks.

@ DawginLex, Dead on! Been saying the same exact things myself. Bobo runs CMRs offense so unfortunately he’s not going anywhere. CMR needs to hire an OC like he did his DC and just be the HC. EVERYBODY who watches every game the dawgs play can predict most of the plays. It’s the same thing year after year. You don’t think these other coaches have figured this out too? The O needs an overhaul just as the D did!

Bobo is Not the Problem

January 4th, 2012
2:31 pm

dawgtired, you are 100% correct that Richt ultimately is responsible for all areas of the team. If Bobo’s not doing his job, Richt needs to fix it. He is the CEO.

My handle is “Bobo is not the problem” because 99% of football fans (not just UGA fans) blame offensive failures on playcalling. Yet playcalling is difficult to analyze. If you run it up the middle four times in a row successfully, and then throw an incomplete pass, fans will ask why you stopped doing what was working. Yet if you run up the middle on that fifth play and get stuffed, fans will ask why you are being so predictable. It is a game of second-guessing.

If you really analyze playcalling, you will find that fans often take a contradictory position, decrying what didn’t work, yet lauding those same calls when they do work.

It really comes down to execution.

Someone else made the point that Bobo, as OC, is also responsible for execution. True. Richt bears an even greater responsibility.

Yet MOST fans think of the OC as the playcaller and gripe about Bobo’s playcalling. I hear very few fans complaining about Bobo’s lack of drilling execution and fundamentals into the players’ heads.

UGA Insider
I do agree that the Georgia football team’s real problem is Adam’s. I really don’t think that Adam’s cares if we win or not as long as we are respectable enough that the supporter’s donation’s are sufficient to keep Georgia as one of the most profitable program’s in the nation. The big question is how involved is Adam’s in trying to do McGarity’s job. If Adam’s won’t interfere with anything that McGarity does I think Georgia football will get in the upper tier of the SEC and stay there for a long time.
Georgia is real close to being an SEC power again and I think McGarity know’s that the status quo will not get us there but we have come a long way in 2 year’s with better recruiting, coaching in some of the position’s and attitude. More is needed on the offense side and special team’s . The big question is will CMR admit it and will McGarity be allowed to make the changes necessary to keep us improving.

Richt makes his living off recruiting, not coaching. That’s why he keeps Bobo; not for his coaching skills but for his recruiting abilities.

For all of you cool-aid drinkers and there are many of you. Take off the red and black glasses, Richt is the problem at UGA, and he has been since 2005. He has never had an O.L. that dominates people, and he is responsible for the worst O.C. in the SEC that being Bobo. Bobo was promoted to O.C. at a top SEC program at the time with no O.C. experience, he was a fuc–g Q.B. coach, that should tell you all you need to know about Richt and his head coaching decisions. No competent head coach in the SEC would ever promote a Q.B. coach with zero and i mean ZERO experience as an O.C. to that position in the SEC. But yet Richt gets a pass on this pathetic decision. My God at least the idiot at Florida hired a competent O.C. with NFL experience, but the mighty Richt promotes a Q.B. coach. Richt is a joke, always has been and always will be, send his ass back to Fl.State, where he learned his pathetic offense from the biggest phony in college football Bowden. Pastor Mark was fortunate enough to have the talent Donnan left for him, but those days are long gone. And now” Walk on the water Richt”, has to depend on the most pathetic coaching staff in the SEC on the offensive side of the ball to bail his sorrry ass out. Sorry cool-aid drinkers, not gonna happen with pretty boy Richt in charge. Never has and it never will. Richt, Bobo, Ball, Friend=high school coaching talent. It is a shame UGA has to settle for this B.S, but hey we have such a wonderful A.D.. McGarity is full of hot air. he is a puppet ,nothing more. UGA=the laughing program in college football, after all we just got beat by the team everyone compares us to Mich.St. LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

dawginlex, I am not here to argue whether Bobo is or isn’t a good playcaller.

My main belief is that EXECUTION of any gameplan is more critical than the gameplan itself. EXECUTION fixes perceived bad playcalls.

The best gameplan will not overcome shoddy execution of that gameplan.

While Bobo bears responsibility for execution, fans just focus on the playcalling itself.

Richt is ultimately responsible for the gameplan AND the execution.

@Dawginlex Perfect breakdown of needed changes but little chance they will be adopted. Would add that jury is still out on O line coach and S & C cooridinator. Even if we hired new OC would probably be along the lines of Offensive line coach (small school, unknown commodity, no record) and while I have no problem with young, talented, aggressive coaches who earn and deserve promotions, these people need direction and great leadership and I don’t think we offer that in CMR. Don’t get me wrong, if I had a son who needed life direction and an example to follow, CM R would be high on the list tyo do that but we are talking about big time football and he is just not cut out for the hard, tough decision making that is required. That said without tremendous improvement in our O line and running game we are looking at 8-9 wins next year regardless of schedule. Depressing but true.

There are 6 players from the state of Ga. in the Army-AA game, and none of them have committed to UGA. 3 have committed to Bama. Also, of the top 11 players in state of Ga. only 1 has commited to your wonderful recruiter Bobo and Richt. 3 to bama, 2 to auburn, and to leaning to bama. That is the most pathetic job of recruiting in state of any head coach that has ever coached at UGA.

There’s no creativity to get the ball to playmakers into space.

Defensively much improved, but still not finishing the drill in the second halves of games. Depth is still an issue, but hopefully recruiting will continue to get better.

There’s no doubt that he has become more conservative over the years. I remember a game in Richt’s early years where he called a dangerous pitch to a tailback in order to ice a game against Tennessee. But then again, in the Florida game this year he threw a pass to Conley to help ice that game. If you look back at Richt’s career, he was incredibly fortunate to win some of the games he won. In 2002, without SC fumbling on our 2 yd line at the end of the game, and without the absolute miracle of a finish against Auburn we never play for the East title. And he lucked out in the 02 SECC game not having to face Alabama who was on probation that year. Instead we face a mediocre Arkansas team.

With all that said, I think he’s a very good coach and an even better representative for our University. I am glad he’s our coach and hopeful that he will learn from his experiences this year. Perhaps Grantham can instill some of his personality in Richt and in this team. I am convinced that Grantham’s comment about needed to learn how to “finish a team off” was directed more at Richt and Bobo than at the players. Perhaps that’s just wishful thinking!

As for a running game, Samuel seems to be a great kid and a DGD but handing him the ball from the shotgun when he is standing still and 3-5 yards behing the line is never going to work. He is strong and tough but giving him the ball there is like handing it to a statue and with opur O line he ususally has at least one if not two defenders in the backfield with him. that’s why is was so discouraging to watch the last drive and the over time series. I love what he did against Florida and if IC had his heart and desire and work ethic, he (IC) would be much better suited to the SEC. I’ll still always love my DAWGS but realistically until a lot of changes are made we are about where we belong based on coaching.

January 4th, 2012

I doubt Richt does much of anything at all with the defense, meaning that so much of UGA’s success in the Richt era has been tied to Van Gorder and now Grantham. The UGA offense has made some nice plays over the years with some solid college athletes, but UGA has never been a powerhouse offense – many years UGA scoring has been based on defense whereas the offense typically struggles in the red zone and struggles to make big plays when they are needed most. Richt and Bobo are a BELOW AVERAGE offensive coaching combo. If Richt keeps Bobo, he again places limitations on the offense that are almost definitely going to cost UGA football games.

Richt – Act like you are paid about $3 million a year and tell Bobo to go coach a high school team since most colleges would probably never consider him as an offensive coodinator much less a head coach. Bobo is not a head coach in waiting for UGA unless UGA gets a death penalty ethical violation and Bobo is the only coach in America willing to coach there.

He doesn’t really believe in a running game. Never has. Then he gets a lead and tries to run out the clock. LMAO. CMR seems to be under the delusion that if you wish for something, it will happen. Nothing else is required. Want a running game to kill the clock? Just do it, no practice required. Want to be great? Just state you are on the verge of greatness and it will happen.

I disagree that Bobo is not the problem. The play calling was exactly our problem this year. Michigan State saw they could not run against our defense so they threw the ball 51 time’s. When we saw that our running back’s could not penetrate Michigan State senior defensive line Murray should have also become a passing machine with the great receiver that we have but I don’t think CMR had enough confidence in Murray to trust that he would not turn the ball over. That tell’s me that as good as Murray seem’s at time’s he is terrible at time’s also ,especially passing the ball and he can not run like he did in high school because he is not strong enough to hold on to the ball after being hit.
All of us wanted a balanced offense but this year our strength was receiver’s not running back’s and the offense needed to play to our strength’s not to our weakness.

The reason Mark Richt will be able to stay at UGA as long as he desires is his missionairy work and perception(actually a reality) of how he works with the FCA. At “most” schools those would be considered nice qualities but not enough to insure lifetime tenure. Mark Richt is LOVED by those who would ever have to make a decision to fire him. Has anyone wondered why Richt has NEVER received a “scent” of interest from an NFL team? The guys in the NFL see Marcus for what he is–a guy with a superior recruiting base in a fertile state of exceptional talent whrere Georgia is seen as the choice over TECH by 90& of the high school kids. He also gets to benrfit from the Vandys, Mississippis, Kentuckys and directional schools of the country that guarantees him at least 7 wins before season starts. If he goes 3-2 in the “real” games hei s sitting at 10-2 and we get to hear “How can you knock the guy he wins 10 games a year?’

To not admit that Grantham need’s more improvement is crazy. Our defense was lite year’s better than last year with the player’s learning the 3-4. They finally have the depth to be a dominate unit but Georgia has got to improve on red zone defense and when the other team’s go into their two minute offense we have got to stop them. On Michigan state’s last drive when it was important to stop them I would have blitzed on every play to put as much pressure on their QB as possible. Murray can not handle that kind of pressure and you can only hope that you’re opponent’s QB wouldn’t either.

Were we better than last year, yes. Will we better than this year, yes. Should crack that top 10 next year. Even the 4 losses teams not that much better, just couplde plays or players away.

So shut-up get behind the Dawgs are contribute and pull for someone else.

UGA still has the most favorable schedule out of UGA, USC and UF in 2012. They will have a very good shot at getting back to Atlanta as long as there aren’t a bunch of off-field issues (arrests, supsensions, transfers, etc). The problem for veryone in the East will be what to do gainst LSU if you do make it to Atlanta? They look to be just as good in 2012.

I like DawginLex’s 6 point plan. How likely is it? Not so much.

1. Richt is not going to hire a new OC… not going to happen. Why? Too many NFL coaches have told him our players are very well coached and are well adapted to play in the pro’s. Second, he’s too loyal to Bobo to demote him. He’ll say that had Murray not coughed up the ball three times we would have won rendering any discussion of Bobo’s bad play calling – moot.

2. I think Richt is now use to being the Commander In Chief and doesn’t relish getting into day-to-day scheming, which is what would be required if he were to resume Special Teams coaching. A better option would be to name a current coach or Grad Assistant as Head Special Teams coach and tell the other coaches they’re going to have to cough up their players to support the greater good.

3. Whoever replaces Bean Anderson is going to be an upgrade. My early guess is that will be Watts Dantzler. I’m not convinced we’re set at Center yet. I expect that position will changes hands a couple of times before a 1st stringer is announced.

4. Our Running Back situation is inexcusable. Willie McClendon is not the answer.

5. We still need help in our S&C program. MSU looked huge and their offense gassed our D-Line.

6. Aaron Murray is prone to being rattled in big games and still makes freshman mistakes. I think Richt ought to open the QB competition. We can’t afford to lose Mason, he’s too damn good.

Best thing written all day on here is someone ask “how much control does McGarity have”? I think after spending 17 years in Florida, the glory years, sitting next to Foley, he knows what winning takes. not 9-10 wins and a good bowl type winning, but real winning. If McGarity can’t see the flaws….or have the authority to change it, we’re screwed. The HC in charge is cool with it.

Lakedawg, it is nice to imagine WHAT IF we had a 12-2 record, but we didn’t. And why do you focus on the games we almost won and not the ones we almost lost? We easily could’ve been 8-6 with losses to Vandy and Florida, both very narrow wins.

We lost to four top 12 teams because we are not a top 12 team ourself. If you want to be a champion, you have to BEAT the good teams, not make excuses that you lost to them because they are good.

Fixing the O-line will go a long way toward solving our problems on offense. QB, TBs and WRs are as good as any team in the SEC. The shortcomings in the QB and TB production can be fixed with a better performing O-line. IMHO, our O-line seems a little too big and slow. But the biggest problem is missed assignments. They were confused as to blocking assignments. As long as the defensive guys lined up and came right at us, we did okay along the O-line. But as soon as the defense came with some less than simlpe bitz packages our guys were confused. Safety blitzes, corner blitzes and simple interior D-line slants created unblocked defenders. Simple stunts seemed to confuse our guys. For the most part, I believe that to be coaching. If not coaching, then the guys were just not capable of picking up the variations to the norm. It was not due to a lack of talent.

I’m going to tell it like it is..Bobo calls the plays he does because he AND Richt simply don’t trust their QB(it’s blatantly obvious if you know anything about the game of football), and like I’ve said, nor do I. He/they look at the situation, and see that just a few series ago, Murray scrambled and fumbled. They also know he just threw 2 really bad INT’s. SO, they say to themselves, “we don’t need him(Murray) to turn the ball over here”, so they run it up the middle hoping the other team actually thinks we may throw the ball. And with this, I actually don’t blame them, I would be scared to death that Murray would throw another STUPID Int. too.(or fumble like he seems to do, ALOT).

BUT, what I do blame them on is this, IF YOU DON’T TRUST YOUR QB, THEN FIND ONE YOU DO TRUST!!!!!! They’ve got a guy sitting on the bench who throws the ball where it needs to go, and more than that, he knows how to anticipate! Mason is not holding all those Ga High School records for nothing…Coaches, don’t be scared to make a change when your main guy isn’t getting it done!

It seems the scripted plays to start a game work well. But passed that it’s a crap shoot. I don’t think we get conservatives so much as fearful. The coaching staff at times show little confidence in their players …. afraid that a mistake will be made. The obverse side of this fear factor is the lack of aggression in a game that requires it. I invite UGA fans to go back over the odd, conservative play calling that has occurred at times this year and see if you don’t see fear as a prime factor.

That certainly act like they trust him. They won’t let anyone else play the position.

If Mason is so great, why was he heavily recruited by…Purdue and Tennessee Tech (or some such)? AL didn’t go after him. Neither did FL, LSU, TENN, SC, or any other significant school.

When things are going well for UGA your sideline looks like a bunch of thugs the way they conduct themselves and you should be embarrassed.

The biggest concern is Richt as the head coach. Not up to SEC standards of today. Maybe he could make it in the ACC. I could have said Richt and Bobo, but Bobo is entirely on Richt so why flog a dead horse…or in this case a dead dawg. UGA will not improve in 2012 because Richt is still going to be hanging around. I still can’t believe that McGarity would be so stupid as to extend Richt’s contract more then two years. That’s long enough for Richt to finally prove he doesn’t have what it takes. My early prediction for 2012: Missouri will upset UGA up there and Spurrier will beat Richt in Columbia. No SEC East next year. What else happens remains to be seen.

Our big experienced O-Line got whipped on Monday. How many tackles for loss did MSU have? Murray pressured, eventually went to a roll put passing attack. MSU had a number of times d-linemen who went totally unblocked. On one play 2 of our O-linmen blocked the inside rusher and the outside end came unblocked. Amazing that a group of guys that experienced and that big play so soft. Can’t get a 4th and 1. Can’t grind out one 1st down down to ice the game. Sad thing is everyone knew we wouldn’t be able to, but they tried anyway. I would have rather let Murray throw short for a 1st down. It all got put on the defense and our erratic kicker. Murray not even allowed to try to score in overtime. Zero confidence in him. Poor coaching.

Tallydawg, hate to break the news to you but Richt and Bobo are getting there asses handed to them in recruiting as well by Saban and Smart. There are 6 players from the state of Ga. in the Army-AA game, and none of them have committed to UGA. 3 have committed to Bama. Also, of the top 11 players in state of Ga. only 1 has commited to your wonderful recruiter Bobo and Richt. 3 to bama, 2 to auburn, and to leaning to bama. That is the most pathetic job of recruiting in state of any head coach that has ever coached at UGA. So keep dreaming about your boys Richt and Bobo, they are total jokes on game day, and now it is spreading to recruiting. Richt,Bobo,McGarity= total joke.

Wow you are dumber than previously thought. We arent getting whipped by Bama are you kidding me??? The thing that hurt us was idiots on places like this calling for Richts head and further spreading what ESPN started. That started the kick to negative recruiting by Satan and his side kick Kirby. Thats how they have been winning in recruiting. Straight lying to these kids faces. And to top it off when he barely has room for 20 recruits to sign what does he do??????? He states publicly that he is going to sign 30!!! This will cost him JJ bc his family knows of that crap. (Why do you ppl think we gained so much ground on him????? We over came the negative recruiting done by Bama and then did a little of our own with the oversigning. Mark my words if by the 9th Alabama has 2-3 more commits JJ picks UGA due to oversigning by Bama.

So youre an idiot for thinking that there is anything wrong there any more (If you need another example check out Reuben Foster who was told everything negative under the sun about UGA but now that those lies have been corrected by Richt and Co. we are back in the race and could easily steal him back with Trey Matthews, his HS teammate, helping in recruiting.)

Stephen A.DAWG: UGA is NOT top 10 material !

January 4th, 2012
4:25 pm

Despite the easy 2012 schedule, UGA is NOT a preseason top ten program. Richt and Bobo are not capable making the changes needed to attain top ten status. Richt has told Bobo that Tampa,Florida product Aaron Murray is the permanent starter at QB for as long as he remains at UGA. So no matter how poorly he performs in big games, Richt will not stop Murray’s entitlement to be the starter.

Bobo’s hands are tied by Richt. Nobody, including Bobo really trusts Murray at QB for UGA but Richt and what Richt says goes. (Has Murray been nominated for any post-season awards y’all ?) All Bobo can do is try to “protect” the UGA offense from Murray by limiting his knack for turnovers. This is why he sends tiny RB Carlton Thomas up the middle so much. Then punt and put the game in Grantham’s defensive hands. Conservative. This kind of offensive “coaching” and playcalling may work against mediocre teams, but most certainly is losing strategy versus top twenty competition. Good team will force UGA to trust Murray to make good decisions and he can’t because of all his limitations. All Murray the starting UGA QB has done is compiled meaningless statistics, just like Joe Cox and David Greene. He is 16-11, with NO wins versus a highly ranked team. Murray is NOT starting QB material in the SEC. Maybe in the Sunbelt conference, not the SEC. He is Richt’s personal favorite and he is Richt’s man at QB, who has UGA knocking on the door of greatness. Really ?! Honestly, it’s the door of mediocrity they have been beating on. The offense, head coaching, and special teams are Georgia’s chronic problem, not the defense. CTG has done an admirable job considering the dysfunctionality of the head coaching, offense and special teams. Under Richt good players are dumbed down then seem to go bad or vanish in his offense and special teams.

I hate to say this but the only way we will see real change at UGA is to get rid of Richt (retain Coach Grantham or consider him for head coach). Or bring in a proven head coach who can do things the true Georgia way. UGA under Richt has tried to do things the ACC andFSU way and it just won’t work in today’s SEC. Richt can’t change what has worked for him for over 25 years, so UGA must have the courage to make the changes without him in order to get to the next level. Georgia can’t have a 90s ACC offensive mindset to win big in the SEC. Georgia won’t be able to keep dodging ‘Bama, LSU, and Arkansas. Georgia can’t keep losing to South Carolina or UF, and keep beat its chest over beating Tech.

Richt needs to wake up and admit to himself Georgia is beating on doors of mediocrity, not greatness, and make the changes before it costs him his job.

You cant take what the ppl say on here as reality of what the majority of us UGA fans feel. Bc I guarantee you that I along with 90% of bulldog nation call the ppl who want Richt fired Fricken Idiots. They have no clue what they are talking about and just spew hatred for the guy.

Bobo runs Richts plays, but he picks which ones to run and when. Bobo is the one with the predictable offense. When half the country can call the play from their couch before it happens then there is a problem. What I did like though was seeing him air it out on 3rd and long a few times instead of the normal draw up the middle with Carlton.

We have an amazing athlete in Nick Marshall (Former QB) and what does Bobo do??? leave him on the sidelines. Bring that kid into the game and run the Wild Dawg for a couple plays and see what happens. We have had this drawn up since before the season started and it never happened. we even had a version with Rambo at QB that never happened.

We have so much speed but Bobo never uses it. If you go back to the Mich St game. the run plays that work minus maybe 1-2 are sweeps to the outside, why???? bc we are faster than them!!! and you know those short passes that were working to start, where did they go???? I know they made some good adjusments at half, but they couldnt cover a fricken buble screen against us and we stopped using it after the first quarter.

Its pretty easy to see folks that its Bobo that is the problem and not Richt. Move bobo to head recruiter and QB coach, fire Bmac (Love the idea of seeing what Herschel is doing!), and force Richt to take over special teams (Dont agree with everyone saying play scholly players, only bc we couldnt afford to this year with so little depth. However he better next year bc we will be full up and there is no reason not to anymore)

Its not that hard. Bobo has had too many chances and if they stick with him for next year he better actually use some of these awesome formations he has drawn up.

Georgia does not have a problem scoring point’s.
The problem is keeping the lead.
And sustaining a long time consuming drive to run the clock when they do have a lead.
Only game this year where they did was the auburn game. UGA took a 3 score lead and ran downhill the rest of the game.
The failure is in personal and execution in the conservative play calling.

I do not see UGA as a preseason top ten and with that schedule they won’t climb into the top 10 unless the top 10 has several bad shake ups. I also sense we’ll lose at least 1 game out of the first 5

We should be top 15 easy. And yes it will be hard to move up, but Wins at Mizzou and and at SC will vault us in the top 10 gaurenteed (as long as we dont slip up before then). And then we would slowly creep up with each win and then winning the SEC would vault us to number 1 if we werent there already. But it will take 13-0 to make it to the BcS CG

Even if we went 12-0, we wouldn’t be number #1 in the BCS. I think going 12-0 will be the problem but I digress. The schedule as it stands now is mighty weak. Strength of schedule plus the voters just don’t like UGA. I’d say we could break the top 5 if we went 12-0. We would have to win the SEC CG to break into the top 3 and be 13-0.

Unless a few of those teams ie.. FL, TN and SC had better than expected years. You don’t seem to understand how far we have fallen, do you?

Some we have are one or the other, but so far no one has both qualities. Hopefully Marshall will come in and show I.C. that you cannot be a glass chandelier and play tailback in the SEC. The best blocker in the game was (if you missed it watch the film) Carlton Thomas. He took on bigger men and kept them off Murray. Our big guys have to open lanes, and then we need someone who can run it up in there. No run in SEC…no win in SEC!

I wonder if anyone out there knows of an Offensive Coordinator, College or Professional whose play calling is successful every time. It seems to me that if the Georgia coaches call a pass play that wasn’t successful, they should have run the ball and if a run is called that wasn’t successful, they should have passed the ball. This reminds me of what is referred to in the military as a latrene lawyer. It appears to me that what we have is a bunch of so-called fans that wouldn’t be satisfied if they were given a job as a taster in a pie factory. How about giving our team, including all of our coaches, a pat on the back for a job well done. Can’t wait till 2012!

I’d like to see Richt open up the competition at QB. This blind loyalty stuff has to end. Any other position on the field the competition is open to allow the best player the opportunity to win the game.

Now I know when things don’t go well on offense the most popular player is the back up QB, but from what little I’ve seen, Mason seems to have a presence that Murray doesn’t. Anyone can have presence against little sisters of the poor, and who knows Mason may fold under pressure as well, but based on what I’ve seen the kid do in the little time he’s given, I sure would like to see what he can do if given a fair chance.

We’ve got the talent, the problem we’ve had is simple – Offensive play calling and execution.

they come out like gang busters with nice methodical drives, throwing in an occasional big play. The defense is rested and when they are in they throw many 3 and outs. Then if we get a lead bigger than 3pts all of a sudden we go to conservative vanilla play calling. “we got this all we have to do is let the defense do their thing and walk out with a 3pt victory”

The problem is then WE start going 3 and out, do that 3-4 times in a row and now OUR defense starts to wear down, and we let teams back into the game that should have been closed out a quarter sooner.

If your offense is doing something that’s working, you don’t go away from it until the defense PROVES they can stop it. It’s like Bobo is on a clock or something and regardless of how the game is going winning or losing he has a point where he feels the need to change up. When we get a lead we go conservative. I just don’t get it. If all of us casual fans can see this McGarity has to right?!

I realize that we will have problems next year with the OL, special teams and the fact that our strength and conditioning program still isn’t state of the art as evident by the second half collapses in the past two games.

The biggest problem is Bobo. He has to go. We had over a month to get ready and Bobo got totally outsmarted by the Michigan State coaches. The horrible performance against Michigan State was just an example of what has been happening consistently under Bobo.
1. The offensive game plan was terrible. We decided to run right at an All American DT versus running toss sweeps AWAY from the future All American DE Gholston. Knowing that we were overmatched on the offensive line because out strength and conditioning program obviously isn’t up to par, why the heck didn’t we have a plan to include Orson Charles in the game plan other than as a blocker? Charles got ONE pass today for 4 yards. Why didn’t we figure out a way to utilize the second best TE in the country?
2. I’m not against going for it on 4th down early in the game BUT we ran the wrong play. A running play in that spot was doomed because we couldn’t run on Michigan State’s DL.
3. Once again, we decided to play dead and not get first downs late in the game when even my wife who sometimes asks me what inning the game is in knew the defense was gassed and couldn’t stop Michigan State from scoring.
4. The crowning blow of incompetence was the decision to again play dead and try and kick a 45 yard field goal with a kicker that had already missed 12 field goals this season. Every person at our party knew this was a mistake and was first guessing this decision BEFORE the kick was missed.

Bobo has made enough money the past few years to retire and never have to work again. He needs to retire.

Every QB will throw some picks. Obviously the fewer the better, but tipped passes and throwing under pressure will do that to you. What Murray has been particularly prone to is the costly fumble. Whether taking a sack or scrambling, he’s got to secure the ball.

After that bowl game, I’m still worried about how our offensive line will be next year.

Hey, y’all, let’s stop all the vitriole and acrimony toward Crowell. If we must play the “blame game”, let’s place the blame on those to whom it’s rightfully due. Most true freshmen don’t have the maturity to come in immediately to contribute, much less start in the SEC. Crowell is no exception to the rule. It was a poor coaching decision by Richt in the first place to toss an immature and physically unprepared Crowell in as the de-facto starter at RB, because he ran Ealey off and watched King flunk out. Isaiah was not ready to play and should have been awarded a red-shirt in order to set priorities and adequately prepare to be a starting RB in the SEC on and off the field. Richt cheated this kid by forcing him to play prematurely. It’s a miracle Crowell hasn’t given up or was seriously injured after the physical pounding he took . He was not ready for it, and a good head coach would have known it before the opening kickoff of 2011. I’m convinced Richt knew Crowell wasn’t ready but threw him out there anyway. Now this kid’s body is as fragile as his mind was, because everytime he gets hit he’s hurt. Why didn’t Crowell get the same treatment as Thomasville LB, Ray Drew? Because Grantham knew Drew was not ready in his body physically to play at the D-I level. Thus Drew was all but red-shirted and was hardly played by Grantham. It’s not great coaching to toss a player into a starting role because he was highly recruited and has so much talent.

Richt because of Richt had no choice but to play Crowell ready or not. The kid did his best whether we like it or not. So let’s stop pounding on Crowell because he’s already received enough physical pounding and pain. Let’s pray for the kid’s body to heal and for him to mature enough to take his training seriously in the offseason. Crowell had been coddled in high school and had no idea of what he was getting into. But now he knows and it’s up to him to work on his body to get stronger and better prepared. Hopefully he won’t need a red-shirt for the upcoming ‘12 season, but if he’s not ready Richt should be smart enough to grant him one this time. It’s overdue.

Richt and Bobo are conservative when having the lead.
And that’s fine. But you can’t be conservative if you do not have a running game to run the clock.
UGA does not have the O line or the running backs to run a conservative offense when they have a lead.
That’s how the last game was lost
We don’t have the personal or players to run that style of getting a lead and just running the ball.
We need to get that style of players if that’s the type of ball they want to play.
That’s where I see the biggest failure in my opinion.

Richt’s entire universe is Bobby Bowdoin, FSU and the ACC back in the 1990s… The world has changed but has hasn’t nor can’t. It does not matter the the SEC never was the ACC…

Bobo has been in over his head ever since he was promoted to OC.

Couldn”t these two clowns just do the honorable thing and put in their resignations? They should also return most of the unearned income they have received the past few years.

Yes, we have tempered our optimism indeed…

Yeah it was Copach Bobo’s fault that the dawgs didn’t get the firrst down in the first quarter when it was 4th and less than one yd…Should have called a pass,….wait what if its intercepted…or what if our receivier drops it or what if Murrauy gets sacked….Thats all on Bobo…Amazes me tht that we can[t hold the our players acccountable for making plays…Our team was in position and you can argue the call foreer, but boottomline is the players have to execute…notheing else or nothing more…We can argue the OT call to kinc a field goal with Walsh, but he has made tgat kick for the dawgs many, many times ion his career at UGA…No not this time, but thats Coach Bobo’ fault..right or better yet Coach Richt…He makes the kick and we are not evern having this discussion…Some of you have asked where are some of the more respectful and knowledgable bloggers have gone…Like Lowndes and Naganole…They left here for one reason and thats unfortunate because they added alot to the discussions..but they are still out there, just not on the AJC..Me I prefer to come on here at times and usually get called a homer, perhaps, but I do have valid reasons for what its worth…go dawgs

I doubt the O line could be worse than this year. They really couldn’t block anybody and don’t tell me about the strength of SEC defenses. Boise State absolutely b&tch slapped UGA’s O Line. It was weird really, they seemed like they should be much better than they were. I really have high regard for Ben Jones. The O line next will probably be ‘ok’. honestly, if they are worse than this year, watch out.

Hey Dawgster,

Bobo is also responsible for training up the offensive squad. Not just deciding when to send the midget up the middle… So yes, you are right. It is his fault when his QB gets the deer in the headlights look then hands the ball over to the enemy under pressure. Get a grip on it, brotha…

The problem with Bobo is that he does not let the opposing defense get in the way of his game plan. If they are stopping the run, not to worry. Because Bobo will continue to run the midget up the middle. Bobo demonstrates absolutely no understanding of how the enemy requires adjustments in the game plan. If the Army did not change its tactics in response to the adaptive enemy, we would lose every war. Football is like war in many ways.

Murray should not be blamed for the 2 INTs. He and King need to communicate by pointing – “throw here” or “stand there” and then King would not have turned to block when Murray threw to him being open. The other out pattern INT was tipped at the line, you could see it on the replay. those things happen. It isn’t like he threw into double coverage or threw high over the middle. Jason Campbell wasn’t polished until he was a senior at AUB – 14-0.

Probably both……
Our tackles should be guards ( wow I’m starting to sound like tide roll….lol )
Should not be playing the tackle positions.
We do not have a running game no next level RB or a good fullback.
Not to the level of fullbacks that we have had in the past.
If you do not have a running game that kills purr offense since it is based off of playaction.
The others team defense does not have to play honest.

The old guard UGA alumni will be ill if McGarity re ups Richt for two or three more years at a huge increase in salary. The guy simply does not deserve a huge pay raise or one at all. Granthom DOES DESERVE ONE. CMR was fortunate to get CTG in place last year and we are on D much better and much more athletic. We do wear down eventually because we are full of big men on the D line.

As for the O ……………it is obvious for all the world to see Murray looks and looks for the home run ball and either dumps it out of PANIC for a quick 6 pic or he fumbles or takes a sack. UGA can do better than this folks.

UGA needs new blood on this O coaching staff ………….end of story. I am hoping that AD- Greg McGarity will absolutely insist on some MAJOR CHANGES ON O. Bryan Mc Clendon caught the winning TD in the Tech game about 5 years ago. Congrats!! He does not deserve however, to make the $265,000 base salary at 27 years old by being UGA’s LOUSY Running Back coach and some times recruiter. He needs to focus on recruiting OR BE GONE. Bobo needs to be QB coach only. He is an on the job training failure. He makes about $450,000 per year folks!!! That is outrageous.

McGarity really needs to rethink ANY IDEA of boosting Richt’s income and tenure folks and PAY CTG some bread $ !!!

Dyer and Lattimore started as freshmen and were very effective. The idea that freshmen can’t contribute is just wrong. The fact is, Crowell was overrated, and Richt apparently doesn’t make any independent analysis of talent. All of Richt’s recruiting flattery of Crowell helped make the kid think he was the second coming . Crowell found out that he wasn’t in high school any more, and he actually was expected to block, which he never did with any effort. My guess is, Richt will have #1 again in 2012 to lure another “number diva”.By the way, any kid who signs with a school for a particular number is a very stupid kid who won’t be around long.

Both Miles & Saban are great coaches – no question. But I suspect their PRIMARY goal is to win games regardless of the player i.e. Saban’s stance on over-signing. I genuinely believe that CMR has the players BEST interest at heart. While it may not translate to national championships, I’ll take it anyday over Saban & Miles if I had a son that played football.

UF will beat Georgia in Jacksonville, because it is a must win game for Muschamp and he can’t go 0-2 to UGA and stay. So barring any other unforeseen losses at least UGA may win 9 games and lose 3 to make the 2013 Chick-Fila Peach Bowl. Georgia has hit a mediocrity ceiling under Richt. UGA is knocking on the door of second tier greatness is what Richt meant. He knocked on it and it fell on him. Murray said he’s excited and the Dawg Fans should be excited to witness more mediocrity at its best.

evans had you on the right path by scheduling home and home ooc games…mcgarrity will NEVER do that…

What path??? the one not taken by any other SEC school due to the grueling nature of having to play 8 SEC games????

Please inform me on what the issue is here??? Not McGarity, UGA, or the fans problems what the SEC does with the schedule or how good or not the SEC teams are that are PLACED BY THE SEC on our schedule.

As for the ACC and the other little sister conferences, it is necessary to schedule good home and homes bc they don’t even come close to playing in the SEC. Not our fault we were given a favorable schedule. I would rather smack bama around again and watch Saban cry, (especially with us going against Bama for the top talent in the country next year). But we will get a shot at them in 2013 and 2014.

But maybe by 2020 OSU will be good again and when that home and home happens you will get to relive your love for that DA Evans! (FYI do some research McGarity got Boise on their this year, and attempted to get ND, Penn St, and a few others from the big ten before settling on Boise. Since they were the only ones man enough to accept the challenge.)

I think everyone knows a Richt will never coach UGA to a national championship and will keep his job if he continues to have 10 win seasons. I don’t think he has the drive or competitveness to go undefeated and is satisfied with 2-3 loss seasons. That is sad for us UGA fans b/c we have come to expect disappointment every year under Richt. He is a very good person though and great to the fans of UGA football.

Say that all you want, but its winning the recruits. If we get Jordan Jenkins it will only be bc of Richt. Not to mention the long line of recruits that have only come here because of his values, that wins parents over.

But does it in turn give the best coaching style?? No.

But do you honestly think that McGarity isnt smart enough to build most of the necessary changes into the extension??? Give the guy some credit. I would put money down that changes to the offense and special teams will be built in. Starting with play calling. He was just at Florida watching crazy run and Gun offenses that put up huge numbers and knocked off the big guys. He doesnt expect anything less here.

If McGarity can force Richt to put Bobo at RC and QB coach and get rid of McClendon in favor of a OC (someone has to be fired). And pray to God whoever they hire is good with RBs.
And then force Richt to take control of special teams (Instead of 9 co head special teams coaches) we will be fine.

The other option is to force them to actually use some of the new formations that they have been drawing up and to take chances on offense by actually using the fricken wild dawg (And put N. Marshall back there, former QB). This is where the problem is. They have the plays but either Richt has them marked as dont even think about it, or Bobo is just too scared to call them.

Either way we need changes on play calling (dont give me that execution crap, how is C. Thomas at 160 pounds supposed to run up the gut??????) and then how special teams is run (fricken mess, they dont even have anyone in control of the whole group)

So hes wasting time because he is trying to get the players to buy into the program??? We were 6-7 last year there is a lot of convincing that needed to be done. He has them behind him again, but Bobo and or who ever is stoping the plays from being called are the problem. Richt stays as long as he brings in the recruits. Find an OC from the pros that will get in their face and cuss them out when they mess up and we are fine. Bobo is too much like Richt, lucky for us it brings in the recruits but it allows them to walk on you once inside.

Bring in the OC. Put someone in charge of special teams and UGA with Richt will go far.

Not if McGarity puts clauses in the extension that require things to change on offense and special teams. If he can do that and get Richt to sign off on it. We may be ok.

WHY ARE YOU ON THIS WEEK THEN?

ahahahaha I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Family and Financial Planning. Also I dont have any kids so my money spent on tickets is my business.
Actually I got a great education at UGA.

When you work with 10M$ clients and up this is the slowest week. They are all off in Europe or on their yachts headed for their beach houses for new years. But then again you can just use your insane logic and make up all these extra assumptions to prove your point.
you asked why were slow if all other financial institutions were slammed so I told you. When your clients have a min. of 10M investable assets you dont have much to do at years end except to make sure their charitable donations go through. Its on auto pilot here and we are just here this week incase of a client emergency. So believe what you want about me doesnt hurt my feelings even a little.

They were 11-1 last year and were Co champions of the big ten that year of course they came out in full support. They squandered the big 10 championship this year, and most likely left a sour taste in their fans mouths.
THERE IS THE MONEY YOU TALK ABOUT.

Last year were they came into this game on fire and had a great shot at winning and beating bama (which obviously didnt happen).
This year they limp into their bowl game, so not unnatural that their fans wouldnt wanna pay 1K per fan to come down to Florida when there is a good chance that they get waxed again this year by an SEC Powerhouse.
HOW DID THE powerhouse SEC DAWGS DO AGAINS MSU AGAIN?

Stop crying and wait till Jan 2 and we will show you how a real team from georgia is supposed to play.
I agree that a lot of extra credit given to Big ten teams whens its not deserved. They dont have the speed to compete with the SEC, OSU proved that in back to back years. as have countless others that get blown out in bowl games. MSU got that treatment from Bama last year.
THE DAWGS LOST TO MSU

Actually being a financial planner all I need is spell check. Havent taken english since I was a freshman at UGA about 7 years ago. Thats the beauty of working with numbers.

Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray: It wasn’t the return Murray was hoping for to his hometown of Tampa. The Bulldogs’ sophomore quarterback had a banner season with his school-record 35 touchdown passes, but the Outback Bowl turned in Michigan State’s favor on Murray’s two third-quarter interceptions. The first pick set up a touchdown, and the second pick was returned 38 yards for a touchdown, completely changing the complexion of that game.

He coaches scared…and coaches not to lose…which is a submissive weak coaching strategy that doesn’t win championships. I’m sick of the jerks hijacking my team and losing (Goff, Donnan, Richt).

So when/if Richt gets fired or resigns…..who is going to replace him?

Let’s look at the facts, guys…
1. Vince Dooley retires and you replace him with….Ray Goff??? How many people were offered the job before him? I think it was three…one being the great Erk Russell.
2. Ray Goff gets fired and you replace him with…..Jim Donnan. Wasn’t the job offered first to some coach at Kansas who accepted and then said, “no thanks”
3. Jim Donnan gets fired and you replace him with …..Mark Richt. Who was the OC at FSU.

Out of the three guys after Dooley…none of them were BIG names, why not?
Who in the world would even want to come coach at Georgia? Compared to the other facilities in the SEC….subpar facilities….they call that an indoor practice field. It’s a glorified garage! From what I hear the fans are yelling at coach’s wives and their kids in the stands. Wow, that is what a guy wants for his family.
Who would even want to come play? Recruits come to watch ballgames and they here the fans cussing and screaming at the players and their coaches. I read on twitter several people call out player and coaches names and say…I hope you die!
Oh and watch a game in our stadium and then go to a game at Alabama, Tennessee, Auburn, Florida, or LSU. Our fans are pathetic. They sit and watch the game. Anytime I have been to other SEC stadiums their fans stand and cheer the entire time…win or lose
What makes Georgia this great place to take a job?? Beats me
WAKE UP PEOPLE…I don’t think that the Nick Saban, Urban Meyer types will be knocking on our door for a job.
I still love my Dawgs….you should too!

The main 2 problems remain:
1) Bobo is incompetent and need to go far away. A new agressive offensive coach is long over due.
2) Once again, Georgia looses in the game in the second half. This is all about being out of shape. They need a new strength and conditioning coach. They need that coach to start now! Just look at Alabama and other top programs. There is no excuse with the educational programs at the university and have an out of shape football team.
3) Richt needs to remember his job is to bring championships to Georgia. Focus on that Richt! Discipline the team. Demand excellence.

In all seriousness after thinking about Tech for many years

Your never going to have a good Defense under Johnson I dont care who you hire because your Defense doesnt have the luxury to practice against offenses that they will see every week.

Instead they have to practice against that old time offense Johnson runs and thats why your players cannot adjust during game time.

Thats why Johnsons offense gets a bunch of yards and points because every team Tech plays doesnt face a Johnson style offense but 1 time so they are unable to make adjustments as needed. and thats why Johnson cant win bowl games because people have a month to prepare. Its the same principal just in reverse

I don’t have the heart or energy anymore to pull for such an average football team. They’ve ruined UGA football for me. There is no excitement, no get-up and go. I can’t get excited for the Dawgs anymore, because they don’t make me want to pull for them. I think I’m going to start pulling for Northwestern…

Please, just put Bama back on the schdule so that we don’t look like a wuzz football team next year. Please, UGA, get a run game. Please do something so this team doesn’t die in Athens. G-d forbid that we start losing to Tech year in and year out… that would just about do it for me…

I’m impressed with with the Clemson OL. Let’s get their OL coach to Athens, and LSU’s running back coach… sorry, I’m dreaming…

Aaron Murray — are you watching. Look how, with confidence, they are throwing the ball down field…with striking precision…and scoring TDs.

Bobo, I know you can’t be watching because you would realize what junior high football play calling you have been making, and that would embarrass you, I know. Those are real men, real coaches, and real play calling out there at West Virginia and Clemson. Maybe you’re watching Oprah…that’s okay, you need a break. I understand.

I almost forgot what great tailback running looked like until I sat down and started watching the Orange Bowl. Wow, and their names are not even Herschel, or Walker…

What was it, the running stat UGA had against MSU? 39 rushes for 51 yards. That’s not a run game, that’s a middle school basketall score.

Big Wally: 10 field goal attempts… you’re out of you’re mind… You need to go sit out with poopee in the cold and dark… We would be much too far away to attempt a field goal as the OC would have called several run plays up the gut for negative eight yards, obviously putting us out of field goal range! But, I like the optimism.

I say we don’t get any new kickers in Athens, and only try to win by TDs, but that would nearly be impossible as well since we can’t score against anybody except Coastal Carolina. I just hate field goals and would rather all games be decided by TDs, especially in overtime.

dawg48, the Spring Classic doubleheader at the ted is personal to me. Proceeds from this event benefit neurosciences at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, specifically to help pay for an intraoperative MRI at Scottish Rite. This machine is located between two operating rooms. The MRI is primarily used for pediatric brain tumor surgeries. It allows the neurosurgeons to be much more precise than ever before. It saves little lifes. (I am a parent of a pediatric brain tumor survivor. 12 years ago yesterday since surgery) This event is important.

Bill as you know by now, CMR has players that are going to start and play regardless of whether they have earned the spot or not.
Mettingberger outplayed Murray by a sizeable margin in their debut in the spring game a few seasons ago, you see how that ended up.
Was Joe T. the best qb the year he started?
Was Joe Cox better than Matt Stafford sitting on the bench?
The same thing is going on with Hutson Mason.
Remember when Shockley came in every 3rd series for David Greene, not because he was better than Greene but CMR felt obligated to give him playing time.
Do you really think Mason will stick around? If he were going to get more playing time he would have gotten it this season. Murray is CMR’s chosen qb and until he leaves UGA he will be the qb to lead us win or lose.
Don’t forget Lemay is watching this qb situation too and if he don’t play some this coming season will he transfer?
UGA has 2 more qb’s on the roster with another one in the upcoming recruiting class.
Not but 1 of CMR’s qb’s ever made it in the NFL but Stafford and his talent was wasted at UGA because of lack of defensive support..
Maybe 2012 will be better Bill, but several of those games on our schedule will be hard to come out on top, Missouri, S. Carolina, Florida and Auburn, all these games will be hard to win if our best players are not on the field.
Be a big help too if all our players were coached to win instead of coached not to lose.
One example of being coached not to lose was putting Logan Grey in to fair catch punts his time at UGA, we had 10 players on the bench capable of returning a punt instead of fair catching.
Returning a punt Bill is like getting an extra play on offense, and by using a fair-catch your robbing yourself of an opportunity for that extra play. Logan Grey must have had 40 or more fair catches in just that 1 season.
Just my opinion’s Bill.
Thanks for your input.

The Oregon game was awesome, as it is awesome to see players giving their all and not being “gassed or hurt”. I’m so sick and tired of hearing about UGA players being tired. Another slogan is all we need, “Finish he drill!” Bull-crap, just get in shape and play as hard as the Oregon players do; or at least as hard as the game going on in the Orange Bowl. Where do all the Oregon kids come from? Are they all from California and the west coast?

But I’m glad it’s there.

Hey the bottom line is Ga dont know how to finish a team off. The outback bowl was a mirror of the SEC C’ship game. Ga lack mental toughness! They could not finish off LSU, they could not finish off Mich St. The coaches need to get tough on the players, because CMR wont.

Another thing is we need an Offensive Coordinator. ANYTIME you run into the strength of a def a-la LSU and MIch St. DT’s. You are bound to loose; and once again we showed everyone “give us time we will give you the game” We should have never lost and it hurts! Ga should have played in at least two or three Nat’l C’ship in the last 5 years, but we figured out how to give a game away instead of putting a team away. We should be in contention in 12′ gotta wait and see. The bottom line is till Ga get mental tough, we aint going nowhere! When we finally get an OC who dont get conserative and adapt a killer mentality maybe we can win the big games.

If a Georgia fan really wants to know, just look at Georgia pre Richt……….then post Richt……….The ultimate Georgia fan seemed to sum it up best, when he was quoted as saying “All we need today is “ol lady luck to smile on us today”………….While the “big boys” of college football DO run incycles, sometimes a little luck is needed to seal the deal………………The University of Georgia Football proram made me proud to be a DAWG in 2011…………..Me?

Alex Ogeltree in the first two weeks and one decent, uninjured tailback in the last few weeks and we win three of those four loses. We had no running game the last two games, and not a lot of side to side defense the first two. And did you notice how Jarvis Jones was ineffective after the knee strain in the MSU game? If you didn’t, you shouldn’t be posting here.
We ain’t far off from where we want to be, children. This isn’t the NFL, it’s college ball, where you can’t (or shouldn’t) buy your way into a championship. I think we’re on the doorstepof doing it the right way.

Mark Richt is here. He is talking. He said that we had a

GOOD SEASON

not a great season, but a good season.

I presume, of course, that good means good. According to Mark Richt,

25 LOSSES THE LAST 6 YEARS

is good.

Not great, but GOOD.

GOOD : respectable, noble, worthy, blameless, opposite of bad, sound, opposite of useless, effective, high quality, first-class, first-rate, superior, fine, excellent, good quality, opposite of poor, enjoyable, pleasant, nice, agreeable, lovely, delightful, opposite of bad, skillful, proficient, accomplished, skilled, clever, capable, competent, opposite of unpleasant, terrific, splendid, wonderful, smashing – this is what good means.

What we have is a season which started with turmoil of 30 players whom the fans told

GOOD RIDDANCE

- listed with their accolades, the come-backs were he isn’t going to be missed, him either, him as well, etc. What we witnessed was in fact that at the end of games, we didn’t have players to put out there any longer – it was pervasive across the board, but no where more evident that we did miss them 7-deep at Running Back.

The season, then began in earnest and we LOST both of the 1st two games against teams who all season maintained their position in the 25 – something we did not.

- listed as we cannot beat top teams, the come-backs were our fans prefer Mark Richt to Nick Saban (devil), to Les Miles (leprechaun luck), and anyone else put up on a long list of coaches who are doing better than Mark Richt, because well because Mark Richt is a fine Christian Man.

Wake up and More are Fed-Up

January 5th, 2012

What we witnessed was that Mark Richt played 4 teams who end up top 25 and LOST ALL 4. We did, however, beat the teams we should have beaten, except for South Carolina, Boise State, and Michigan State – all games where we just blew it – not that we didn’t blow it against LSU because we most assuredly got beat by LSU as well. Would have lost, clearly to Arkansas and Alabama and Oregon, and Stanford, and Oklahoma State and Wisconsin, and on and on and on.

Then, Bryan McClendon and Mark Richt gained the commitment of Keith Marshall – single most significant commitment all 12 years of Mark Richt era. The following weak, we got The SEC schedule and our complete schedule.

- listed by all as games where the fans play the games on paper and say on paper there is not a team on the schedule who SHOULD BEAT US. The come-backs were by our opponents and they tried to point out that we haven’t beat the top teams not in any of the 11 seasons to-date; and that when we did beat 1, we lost 3 or 4 other games the same season – some to teams who did not end up top 25 or if they did squeaked into the top 25 at # 25 or # 24, obviously meaning if they hadn’t beat Mark Richt they would not end up ranked.

BILL KING says we played 4 teams ending up top 25 and LOST ALL 4.

MARK RICHT says we had a GOOD SEASON, not great GOOD.

I said all Summer we would be 11-3. Instead, we went 10-4, a 10-Win Season like that of two dozen other teams this 2011 season alone – two dozen.

AVERAGE Mark Richt would be a more accurate and fair statement, wouldn’t it sir ?

UGA used to be the team to make chamges and dominate the 2nd half, especially on defense. It seems that the last 2 years this has changed and now the offense nor defense makes adjustments, especially when the other team makes offensive adjustments. I dont know. We stop executing on offense and I think part of that is the lack of a consistent running game and lack of a game plan when the defense makes adjustments. If we had an above average running game and Murray stopped making turnovers in big games, that would be a huge improvement also. The runing game is going to be better next year if the OL is good at run blocking. Hopefully we will get a junior college transfer on the OL to help out until out recruits get some experience. Richt is a fine coach and has righted the ship and now it is time to get it in high gear the next few years. He has us in position to and I think he will. I do agree with getting a better offensive coordinator. Bobo’s only experience coaching football has been at UGA and I mean imagine if we had Cutcliff or Weis or some other good OC. I know its not all Bobo’s fault but a lot if it is and not Richts fault, especially the playcalling later in games….we dont throw the screen pass or short to our backs worth a flip and that is UNACCEPTABLE and if our OL is weak early next year, you MUST throw it to those playmakers and get them in open field beyond the line and let them have a chance to make a big play. If the right fit at OC comes along, I hope Richt goes after him and lets Bobo be QB coach…do that, run the ball, get Murray to not think he is a running back when he runs the ball and to not throw dumb interceptions…and UGA will be a top team the next few years. Keep Bobo at OC, we better get a great running game quick…..then we might have a chance to be top 5. Get a good OC and a great running game and we will definitely be in the top 5 the next 5 years

Richt will get a pass next season and UGA should get into the SEC East. Unless the O can be somehow brought up to a decent balanced run-throw scheme, the SEC Championship game will be just another embarrassing Alabama or LSU blowout. It is not rocket science to make adjustments on the fly. As the saying used to be “take what they give you”. Bobo and Richt seem incapable of this concept. I.E. Why did Bobo continue to try dive plays into the stacked 4 with blitzing linebackers of MSU ? Why not hit Charles on 6-8 yard down and outs until the D wised up and had to drop linebackers off to try and stop it. If Bobo had Murray throw more than 1 time to Charles I am unaware of it. Murray continues to try and do too much and it leads to dumb turnovers. Why risk a fumble while trying to pick up a few yards on a scramble. Take the sack or throw the ball away. It also appears that routes are not being run properly and secondary receivers not picked up that leads to thowing a pass into the hands of one of 3 D backs for a cheap TD. Richt has his work cut out for him and he can thank the football scheduling gods for keeping him around for another year.

“What I really can’t stand is that we are probably stuck with Murray for another 2 years. That’s not all bad, but when Murray starts having a bad game it doesn’t go away and he get’s in a major funk. And our coaching staff just will not let another QB play if Murray goes bad. Things will have to get terrible before the staff actually gives someone else a shot at QB.”

He sucks against the top teams. No one comes in to stem the tide. It’s not the OL that causes his sacks, his interceptions, or his fumbles. Truth be told, it’s not the play-calling that causes him to have the heebie-jeebies in games against teams everyone knows ends up top 25. He has poor footwork, happy feet, thinks he can run with 21 fumbles in 27 games all at worst possible moments for his football program, thinks he can pass with 22 interceptions in 27 games all at the very worst possible moments for his football program, does not go through his progressions at all not ever, holds the football too long, is shorter than Drew Brees and when you look into Drew Brees’ eyes, you see a mean mother – which Aaron Murray ain’t

45 TD Passes vs teams record of 86-122, none finished ranked, lost 2 of those.

14 TD Passes vs teams record of 97-21, all 9 finished ranked, all LOST.

If there is anything else to discuss about Aaron Murray, it would be how his Offensive Coaching Staff Geniuses think we had

A GOOD YEAR 2011

or, 2010 with his LEADERSHIP SKILLS, or lack thereof tweeting how he is heading to the Georgia Dome to kick some __, declaring on some lark to hear what NFL scouts have to say about him as a QB, or indeed what he does to be the only QB played all last season and all this season, with Mark Richt announcing today, after yesterday announcing it was a GOOD SEASON 2011, that today Mark Richt says that Aaron Murray is A GREAT QUARTERBACK.

He does not zip the football. Mid-season a photo of him with a band-aid on one of his legs, led me to believe it was in fact his ARM, not a leg with a band-aid on it. This guy is puny. He will never take a snap in an NFL game, NEVER. He’s immature, and oh yeah, he studies film when he should be in the gym lifting weights, running because his 4.7 speed in the 40-yard dash is WAY SLOW against top-ranked football teams’ linebackers and DE along with their secondary as well.

He’s an insignificant pint-sized LOSER, and that is being as kind as I can be.

The problem with the defense in the second half this year was the short field the other teams had because of the turnovers from the offense. Field position and time of possession in the four losses was glaring because of the turnovers and poor special team work. Oh hes I forgot….The defense was not on the field in the pick sixes….So Get a new offensive coordinator. If Murray has not learned how to run and slide and not get hit and fumble it is Coaching period.

First of all, Richt won’t demote Bobo, unless he is forced to, because THE OFFENSE IS RICHT’S.

Bobo is calling the plays that Richt wants him to call. He has on a headset and obviously could overrule any call.

1. During the periods where Murray suddenly “loses it,” i.e. FUM, INT, throwing to an area with no receivers, etc., BENCH him for a series and put in Mason. Yes, it could backfire, no question, but it will certainly get Murray’s attention, and dial him back into the game.
2. We have NO running game, partly because of the O-line. Is the problem the O-line or the O-line coach? Will Will Friend be back in 2012 or will Richt look to upgrade?
3. Bobo is back, we’re stuck with that. It’s time to send him SOMEWHERE during the offseason! He needs to meet with other OCs and pick their brains about philosophy, schemes, etc. At the very least, Richt and Bobo need to review all 14 games and look at our offensive play calling tendencies with regard to down and distance.

If we don’t fix these things, it’s more of the same, more of “close but no cigar.”

If beating top ten teams is the only sign of success and each of the 130 or how many 1-A teams there are and have 12 games to play, At the end of the year how can anyone be successful except the top ten teams? Did Boise State play top ten teams, Did Oregon play 12 top ten teams? I wonder how many teams GA played from 80-83 were in the top ten teams. How many of those three SEC championships GA Won under Dooly were shared with another team because they did not have an SEC championship then. How many great OL did UGA have during that period of time. Belue went nuts recently on radio defending Bobo. This years problem was putting the pressure on this all everything young back that had no OL in front of him with a philosophy that never ran the FB therefore only one back in the backfield to run the ball. All these QB’s that we recruit and loose because of lack of playing time cannot become an OL…We have to recruit linemen and let them play. The math has always been there Five OL and One QB…Now you tell me what we should recruit every year and just reload. Especially if Richt is going to continue to Crown a QB every four years and forget the backups..Shockley was not as ready as he should have been, JT was not as ready, Joe Cox was not as ready and Aaron Murray was not as ready to take over because none of them not even Greene had experience before they and you cannot even say Stafford had any experience before he was given the starting position. Bobo and Richt maybe the greatest QB coaches of all history but they have no plan to prepare a back up qb to take the field…Thank goodness we have been blessed with few injuries at the QB position…When Shockley got hurt we had no experienced backup.

David Greene finished his college career as the winningest quarterback in NCAA Division I history with 42 wins in four years, eclipsing the record previously held by Peyton Manning, as Most 1-A FBS Wins by Starting Quarterback (later broken by Colt McCoy Texas 2009.) at

42-10 good enough for 5th place by schools 2001-2004 behind only Oklahoma, Boise State, Miami of Florida and Texas.

Aaron Murray 16-11 good enough for # 43 in the nation, this year for example 25 teams had BETTER 10-Win Seasons than Aaron Murray, leaving him OUTSIDE not in the top 25 in just naming teams with 10-Win Seasons. Last season, of course, Aaron Murray put up 7 losses, requiring me to go all the way back to 1953 to find an UGA Bulldogs’ team with more losses.

AARON MURRAY BETTER THAN DAVID GREENE ?

If Aaron Murray won every game the remainder of his career, he wouldn’t be better than David Greene.

in order to improve, changes must be made. No changes, no big wins

1.) Hire an NFL caliber offensive coordinator and give him full control of the offense just like Grantham does with the D
2.) Keep Mike Bobo on staff as QB coach and recruiter
3.) fire our running backs coach and replace him with a coach who understands and teaches the importance of securing the football and running downhill
4.) Place Richt in charge of special teams and play scholarship players and go back to making this unit a difference maker
5.) Throw all the money you can get to secure Todd Grantham
6.) Give Richt a 2 year extension ONLY if he agrees with all of the above.

Joe, yes, puny legs for a college football quarterback.

Bulldog59, always love your posts. You are tough. I like that. In the periods when AM just loses it, putting in someone else will absolutely assist in the development of AM. He gets the heebie-jeebies. He isn’t getting over them, going back in there yet again. He needs to see from the sidelines, and we absolutely have to stem the tide during these periods.

I actually think against a team you, I, and Mark Richt know will end the season in the top 25, that you don’t even start Aaron Murray. We have no hope with him. He comes to the line, checks out of the play from the sidelines to what isn’t working and stays with the play calls from the sidelines with what will not work. Then, he puts too much on himself and acts like the # 2 college football program in recruiting since 2001 has no talent – yet, he go the DREAM TEAM added to what already was the # 2 talent in the nation. He’s a ball-hog, and a puny one at that. Drew Brees, what a hoot.

I really don’t get all the talk regarding Arkansas as one of the SEC West powers and part of the “Big 3″. They are good, yes, but nowhere near the level of Bama and LSU. They played both and got the brakes beat off ‘em by both as well, and barely escaped Ole Misserable and Vandy. All we hear is how we escaped playing any of them this year and again won’t play them in 2012. I have no doubt we would have beaten Arky had we played them and we all saw what we were capable of in the 1st half against LSU……..catch those balls that were dropped and we’re up big at halftime, LSU is totally out of it’s gameplan and would have to come out in the 3rd quarter throwing and who knows what happens in the 2nd half. Bobo is an excellent qb coach but an awful playcaller who leans too heavilly on his defense to win the game because of his ultra conservative playcalling in the 2nd half of games. We are a offensive coordinator and a reliable place kicker away from being very good. The 2nd half collapse vs. MSU will FINALLY be a huge lesson learned and serve us well going forward in 2012. Lot’s to look forward to Dawg Nation. Keep the faith, be positive and watch as we repeat as 2012 SEC East Champs and go on to win the SEC Championship in the Dome. Write it down. It will happen.

(2) Mark Richt cannot handle his position of CEO of this football program as it is. (3) Assigning him to Special teams, when that is what it is now, isn’t going to fix that either. (4) If he just demotes Mike Bobo, when he hasn’t taught a single qb here ever a single thing ever, to QBs’ coach which is what he was when Mark Richt STOLE HIM from Jacksonville State, he still has the same number of coaches and therefore cannot hire a Special Teams’ Coach, which is what HE NEEDS. Not some other coach on some other team, what HE NEEDS. (5) I don’t think Mark Richt likes Todd Grantham AT ALL. I don’t think there is ANYTHING about those 2 that is not cheese and chalk. I don’t think Mark Richt would give a rats’ behind if the un-Christian-like Todd Grantham went back to the NFL; I really don’t. I don’t think he beats the 10 cupcakes he beat without Todd Grantham; but I don’t think Mark Richt dances to that beat – he doesn’t care about that beat or dancing period. We have a demeanor Lex as a team. Todd Grantham is anti-that-demeanor. I’ve always heard what was best for our program is that we have that guy with that demeanor at the head of this program.

You’re trying to list all the 8 items or 5 items to fix this program, when as I said to the UA fan yesterday on his 8 is that he MISSES THE MAJOR POINTS of Mark Richt era and where we have been consistently over these last 6 seasons of 25 LOSSES.

Michigan

Oklahoma State

Wisconsin

Michigan State

Boise State

South Carolina

LSU

and on and on and on and on.

I listed above in this blog early when I wake up 25 teams with

BETTER 10-WIN SEASONS than we had this season.

25 BETTER 10-WIN SEASONS

We aren’t even in the top 25.

So, go back up there, look at the list and tell me which ones of those 25 BETTER did we beat this season ?

The answer, sir, is NONE.

Best QB in Athens? Nick Marshall.

You can see him running down kickoffs instead of the all-time TD pass leader in GA high school history actually throwing the ball.

I personally don’t see any change as long as the current AD and Head Coach think everything is on the ascent. I think we’ve planed off or worse.

The truth is we should have lost to Vandy, if not several more (I think the win over FL was more FL’s poor play than our good play. Healthy dose of luck there too).

Every year we are suppose to have a dominant offensive line-right up until the South Carolina game. If we are lucky, we avoid games against Alabama and LSU. No too many years ago, we needed to avoid games against Tennessee. The defense has been rehabilitated. The offense needs to start with the line of scrimmage.

Hopfully the new guys will not wilt under fire. Time will tell about the “O” line, but I think we will be as good if not better. The running game will be better it can’t get much worse. Coach “BB” has got to do a better job at play calling The only real thing to smile about is coach “G” Defence, should be solid.

Ole yeller,

I am quite concerned about what ADDITION BY ATTRITION we have this off-season on Defense.

Of course, all those on Offense Defense and Special Teams last off-season were all GOOD RIDDANCE or so I was told.

We probably lose Todd Grantham, Jarvis Jones, we know we lose DeAngelo Tyson, we might lose some long-shots here like Washington looking into it, you could lose a ton actually if you look at those who can declare by January 15 which is still 10 days away, we’ve got Alec Ogletree out of position if Erk Russell was in charge of this defense I can assure you of that (ROVER), Jordan Love certainly hasn’t been allowed out there, Brandon Boykin is gone despite the fact that posters to this blog say it is because the money is too much from the NFL when of course he’s done a senior, Branden Smith hasn’t knocked passes down back there and has been picked on on plays that just killed us all season, Bacarri Rambo certainly wants to leave, Jakar Hamilton is transferring – if you stop and think about it, the Defense

NO ONE CAN DISCUSS until 15 January

Many times declare or not may not make sense to fans, but hidden are the grades.

I think we have significant problems on Defense in the secondary. Forget this 10-win BS and stop and consider what you really saw. It is my position. I believe it speaks for itself what we didn’t do in the secondary. Clear right ? Without having played the position, clear ?

DawginLex:
I echo many of your thoughts/suggestions and have for quite some time:

1) Hire an NFL caliber OC…….this has been screamed by you, me, and everyone else for over a year. Totally agree.
2) Demoting Bobo creates other issues. We are at the NCAA mandated maximum for coaches, if we hire an OC, someone has to go, or be reassigned to off field duties. Plus, demotions rarely work. It would be best for Bobo to leave. That won’t happen. I know someone that was EXTREMELY close to the situation two years ago, and the comments were always that CMR and CMB are very, very close. This person saw it FIRST HAND, daily.
3) The problem with firing BMac (our RB coach) is that he is also a top recruiter. He relates to the prospects in a way the other coaches do not. BUT your point is well taken! We always talk about “ball security” but by the end of the season, it is again an issue.
4. Special Teams – Excellent idea, let the responsibility for this be at the top! Richt should spend a few days with Frank Beamer and figure out first and foremost, why our ST are so SLOW getting down the field. Seriously, most of the time on KRs and some PRs, the guy has a 10 yard head of steam before we are in the picture. We’ve gotten better, but this DEFINITELY needs improvement.
5. Grantham – Totally agree, lock him in. The best thing about Grantham is that his sideline and post-game antics tend to have other teams shy away from him regarding HC openings. Seriously, do you want the head of your program giving the “choke sign” to the opposing team, or getting in a shoving match with an opposing HC at the end of the game?
6. I would love to be a fly on the wall in the McGarity-Richt discussions. Again I agree, there have to be defined goals. The O needs to finish in the top 25 in FBS, we have to finish in the top 25 in turnover ratio, etc. Otherwise, we need to UPGRADE the staff.

During the game, I texted my son, who was at the game. I was saying my usual, “here it comes, Murray will unravel for the next 5 minutes, pull him RIGHT now.” We all saw what happened. My son, who has supported Murray FAITHFULLY, finally texted from Tampa, “they need to yank him right now, he’s lost out there.”

Let’s hope we open up the QB competition a bit in the spring and that Hutson Mason is still with us.

January 5th, 2012

one success factor in football is the ability of the coaching staff to adjust to what the opposition is doing. think half time adjustments. if they load the box, you run the corners or throw over them, etc.
the dawgs stick to the gameplan regardless of how it is working on offense. you don’t see adjustments at all. blocking is not adjusted nor is the play calling adjusted. why? it is a philosophy taught to bobo by his mentor richt.
this rigidity will preclude them from becoming a great program. don’t believe me? check the record. how many ranked teams have they beat in the last 2 years?
on a different note, what is the latest on crowell’s booboo and jenkins injury?
they can have a good year next year if you look at the schedule.
don’t worry if mason transfers and charles goes pro. there is a redshirt freshman sitting there who was #1 recruit at QB last year and there are always TE’s in the stable.
until you change the fundamental philosophy on the offense the result will not change.
remember the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

With all these negative comments it makes some of us wonder why one of you negative “Fans” doesn’t have a job coaching somewhere.

Yes, we lost a tough game to a surprisingly tough team (at least, to us dawg fans). We had our chances for sure. But our guys played their hearts out and I’m proud of them. I’m sick of hearing it’s Bobo’s or Mark’s fault. We couldn’t run the ball so we had to ride Aaron’s back the whole game. Yes, he made a couple of poor throws that hurt us but overall he played well. He is a huge part of the reason we won 10 games and he is just going to get better. Had we won, we would be ranked, what, 6-7 spots higher? Big deal-get over it. I believe in Mark and I support him and all you whiny, crybaby fans need to grow up and shut up, Lessons can be learned from losses like this one and I believe Richt will use it to make sure 2012 will be an awesome year. Surge forward you hirsute canines!

“Lessons can be learned from losses like this one”

Therein lies the problem andy. Mark “I can win games – just not the big games” Richt and his sidekick Booboo do not seem to learn. Until they decide to quit worrying about not losing a game instead of going full speed for four quarters it will be the same result again in 2012. When Richt was studying his “Cutting Edge Football” book he skipped the paragraph in chapter one that talked about a college football game consisting of sixty minutes.

Defense will be fine, future looks bright.
Offensive line will be spotty, again.
RB position will be better, flashy at times, but still not great or deep enough.
WR core look good but shallow.
Punting will be slightly worse.
Kicking will be slightly better.
QB play will be the same, which translates into making too many bad decisions, pick 6’s, fumbles trying to make a play rather than throwing the ball away for another change.
10 wins is the ceiling with Murray at QB.

An extension for Richt will announce to the fan base, “we’re satisfied with competing for a division championship.” If Richt was ever going to play for a BCS championship, he’d have done it by now. No other SEC coach took 12 seasons to win their first one. But then, the bigger issue is the administration’s committment to that higher goal.

Bottom line though is that you played 4 top drawer teams and lost all 4, and of the 10 wins, the best of them was Ga. Tech, who won 8. i feel like even GT could have played the same schedule and won 9-10 games, so what did they prove this season?? To me, it appears they proved that they are no better than the 5th best team in the league.

Coach Richt please find a top notch offensive coordinator and let the new coach and coach Frei call all the offensive plays. Coach Bobo I wish him the best, but he is over his head as the offensive coordinator and either needs to go back to qb coach or take a position somewhere else. His play calling is to predicatable and is getting the rb’s hurt!

I can only hope the recruits who are verbally committed to Georgia will sign and stay and new prospects like Avery Young,Jordan Jenkins,Mike Davis, Todd Gurley,Kenerius Whitehead, Artimus Samuels, Chaz Elder, Tyriq McCord, Imani Cross, Richie Brown, Josh Henry-Clemons and others will give serious consideration with signing with Georgia. I know all can’t sign unless there are additional scholarships open, but a couple good OL would be great to go Josh Theus, Chester Brown,Greg Pyke that are might be coming in with this class.

I look for the offensive line with what’s coming back and what they may be getting to be much better next year. Coach Frei is a good line coach and if Georgia would hire an oustanding offensive coordinator and get this year’s target recruits it could be something special… and if that does happen then the rb’s and wr’s will be making plays.

This season is over.. it’s time to move on!!!!

Granted, some of our key players (Murray, Crowell, & Walsh) had their issues. Murray cracks under pressure & can have some communication errors. Crowell “hurt” his ankle so much it isn’t funny – yet we see other guys playing with much worse injuries. Walsh needs to seriously work on his kicking. BUT…when these guys were on they were ON! You can’t blame coaches for the players lack of understanding or ability to follow through. I think Richt is a great coach, regardless of the schedule, and that Bobo continues to do well in most cases. We do need more variety and need to work on our passing game as well as rushing and do them WHEN they need to be done not just cause we can’t think of anything else. We have some really good players that could be really great if they’d just put THEIR mind too it.

Also, does anyone know if Boykin or B. Smith are coming back? I know Boykin was a senior…and Walsh too I believe…just don’t know if they were 4 yr or 5 yr students.

10 game win streak disguised a lot…glad to have improved record, but did not reflect where our program really is…still struggling (great job scheduling though-McGairty)! If we are ever to step to next level…A. Bobo has got to go (demote or fire) or Richt will go down with him B. COACHING!Need dedicated special team coach, hire strength & conditioning ‘professionals’ & new Off Coord C. Need improvement on the O-line (go get some JUCO’s-need to play right away) D. Richt has to grow a pair….if we can’t beat S. Carolina next year, we don’t deserve credit for turning around anything! Is Murray actually getting any better? Still only looks @ 1-2 receivers (guess he has to with 260 lb guys in his face–no OL) and chunks it. We definitely have better athletes on the field, now we need coaches that can coach & develop the raw talent that we have.

If you just want a NC every year be a Bama fan if they don’t win it at least they will claim it. We have a good returning cast how good well we won’t know until the draft deadline, national signing day, spring and fall practice are all complete and we are 5 seconds into the first game…so relax take a deep breath it will be another wild ride and that is why we all love the game so much.

Disapponting losses at the end of season. Like McGarity said, “there’s plenty of blame to go around”. This goes for both the play-calling and execution as well. However, 10-4 is much better than 6-7; even though the wins weren’t against top-tier teams. I would submit that the losses we suffered last year wasn’t against top-tier teams as well. I would agree with the masses that much improvement is needed in many areas in order to reach the next level. Will they reach the next level next year? I don’t know. What I am confident in, is that the AD will take the necessary steps to get us to that next level. Maybe changes are coming in the staff and/or coaching philosphy. Maybe resistance to change is the reason why the new contract has not been signed. Maybe, we are all speculating too much as to why the contract extension has not been signed. I also agree with some of the posters that the play-calling is very conservaitve at times. Maybe it’s conservative because the staff knows that it’s only a matter of time before the offense and/or QB makes a mistake. Judging by some of the mistakes that has happened, they have a legitimate concern. Maybe the staff has seen these tendancies in practice from both the starting QB and the backups. All in all, everything that’s written on these blogs is all speculation, since none of us are privy to direct knowledge (with the exception of a few) of what takes place on the practice field, locker room, and coach’s offices. 2012 has the potential to be a banner year. Let’s just hope that both the staff and player’s live up to the expectation. I am encouraged about the attitude of the young player’s and I don’t think that they’re going to settle for just being mediocre.

31 years since the last National Championship. Every year we talk about next year. When’s it going to stop? UGA is a mediocre football program and a middle of the pack SEC team and that’s a fact. Yes we have the players, funds, facilities, etc, but it’s been 31 years since the Dawgs have won it all. Our so-called turn around involved 10 wins over end of year non-ranked opponents, which simultaneously locked us in to mediocrity at least through 2016. Until the Dawg Nation refuses to accept mediocrity, we may as well sit back and not get upset when we lose to nationally relevant teams like LSU, Bama, OSU, BSU, MSU, and don’t forget Central Florida. Seeing as how the National Championship banter has already started once again, realize the rest of the college football world is laughing at our self denial.

As an Alabama fan, sorry to see UGA, or any SEC Team lose a close one. I belive GA had the better team. Once the field goal was missed, I turned it off and went to bed. Keep your heads up GA fans.
Just read Stephen Wine’s, AP, report on why the SEC has reached sudden glory. He missed the point completely, attributing it to past racism, new teams and on and on. The real reason is the computer rankings. Once the Northern sportswriter’s biased opinons were taken out of the equation, the Southern teams sprang up. What a coincidence. Remember how they fought to take the first BCS title from LSU? This is no more than the age old bias from the North towards the South, afterall, wasn’t lack of respect and fairness the real reason for the uprising in 1860?

We know what we had with this offensive line! After three games next year the oline will be equal to or better with improvement every snap which hasn’t been the case with this years line! Murray will be better just from the simple fact more reps with his receivers. The defense with more depth will improve. The running back situation with 2 new freshman and what’s already there will be better from the fact compettion makes for better performance. The play calling? we have to get more agressive and have a feel for the game somehow UGA has lost that. The kicking game will improve with another great kicker coming in and Walsh gone. UGA and SC will be play for the East and let’s see if UGA can turn the corner and beat a ranked team next year. We will have our chance Missouri could be ranked in the top Twentyfive and SC should be ranked with both games away it should be a good test. Go Dawgs!

2012 will be much the same as last season. Poor offensive line play will be evident when Georgia plays a quality team. Georgia has not fielded a solid line since 2002, look at how many OL players they have sent to the pros recently. Quality recruiting and player developement are essential for success in the SEC. Georgia has a very poor program in this area, maybe Will Friend is the answer. We will see.
