Emptying the notebook . . .

Duly noted:

– Everyone knew  Knowshon Moreno was a special running back who gained many yards on his own, but this Georgia season is re-proving the point. While Georgia’s offensive line clearly has not created the rooming room that was expected, Richard Samuel and Caleb King haven’t been able to generate much on their own, either.  Saturday was a low point for the running game (just 45 yards  on 24 attempts, just one first down rushing) -– a performance brightened only by the promising debut of freshman tailback Washaun Ealey. Mark Richt said after the game Saturday and again Sunday that Ealey will get more playing time, although he said the staff isn’t ready to “change up the depth chart this second.”  Richt didn’t, however, rule out the possibility of that happening in the days ahead.

– And watching Charles Scott break loose from several would-be tacklers on LSU’s game-winning touchdown Saturday also reminded you of what Georgia hasn’t been  getting from its tailbacks post-Moreno.

– What will be missing when Georgia and Tennessee play Saturday in Knoxville? A ranked team. According to UGA, it’ll be the first time in 25 meetings since 1937 that the Dogs and Vols have played with neither team ranked in the Associated Press or coaches’ Top 25 polls. Saturday’s 20-13 loss to No. 4  LSU dropped Georgia out of the polls for the first time since Dec. 3, 2006. “I’m just glad it’s not the final poll,” Richt said.

–  Georgia and LSU combined for one touchdown in the game’s  first 57 minutes — and three touchdowns in the final three minutes.

– Amid Georgia’s much-dissected shortcomings Saturday — running game, kickoff coverage, not stopping Scott when it mattered most, dismal first-half offense, Brandon Boykin returning an interception from the end zone,  etc.  –- two other plays shouldn’t be overlooked: Joe Cox overthrowing a wide-open A.J. Green on a first-quarter deep ball and Blair Walsh missing his first field goal in nine attempts, a mere 32-yarder, in the third quarter. Those two plays might have meant 10 points in a game decided by 7.

– Richt on  Trindon Holliday’s 40-yard kickoff return that set up LSU’s winning touchdown: “We got punctured right in the heart of our kickoff-coverage team. Their wedge did a very nice job.  And everybody knows Holliday is a special cat.”  Richt said another factor was that Georgia was kicking into the wind.

– Georgia was penalty-free in the first half. Alas, the Dogs had seven penalties for 59 yards in the second half, including the very costly two for 20 yards in the final 69 seconds.

– While still mystified by the excessive-celebration penalty on Green — and, for that matter, by the same penalty on LSU after its subsequent score –- Richt concurred with the call  against Orson Charles for his celebration after his 22-yard reception in the third quarter.

–  As for the penalty on Green’s celebration, Richt said Georgia will consult with the SEC about the call and the rule this week.  “Based on what I saw, I just need to be educated as to what would constitute a flag for excessive celebration,” he said on a teleconference Sunday, “and I want to be able to educate our players in the right way so that won’t happen to us again in the future. . . . I want to play within the rules, but I also want [the team] to have some spirit and have some ability to enjoy some success.”

–  Cox on his own celebration of Green’s touchdown with 1:09 to play: “I know I was excited, just running around like an idiot.”

– There were some Sanford Stadium boos in the first half Saturday, most notably on a third-and-8 play on which Georgia ran the ball (Samuel got 2 yards). Cox heard the boos. “People expect you to throw the ball [in that situation],” he said. “They don’t know there’s nobody up in the box for run support, and if you block it right, there’s no one to tackle the back and you get 30 yards. . . . If it works, people think you’re geniuses.”

–  Georgia’s defense got more sacks Saturday (6, including 3 in a row to start the second half) than in the season’s first four games combined (5). “The defense was having fun out there,” said DE Justin Houston, who had two sacks against LSU and has been a difference-maker since returning from suspension. “It’s so much easier to play defense if you are having fun out there.”

– Dating to last season, Georgia is 0-4 against top-10 teams, losing to Alabama and Florida last year and to Oklahoma State and LSU this season.

– Of Georgia’s 19 losses since 2003, 12 have been by seven points or less.

– And does anybody have a clue what type of game Georgia will play against Tennessee? “It has been a very unusual year in regard to knowing what you’re going to get on a week-to-week basis,” Richt said Saturday night. “We have not really been able to predict how the ballgame is going to go.”

Enjoy succcess Coach Richt ?

UNRANKED in the AP Poll.

UNRANKED in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll.

UNRANKED in the Harris Poll.

UNRANKED in the BCS Poll.

Why don’t you try getting a “Coaching Staff” instead of criticizing the Officials when you can’t teach our kids how to kick-off, play defense, run the football, return punts, defend the pass, and NOT get penalized.

The time for celebration is NOT during the games.

It is in the lockerroom AFTER the game in privacy, not in front of the crowd and TV and opposition DURING THE DAMN GAME.

We are NOW Number 105 in Penalty Yards per game in the nation of 120 teams.

How is your COLLEGE ROOMMATE doing Coach Richt on your “Coaching Staff” son ?

You know, you watch Auburn play a game, and it appears as if they PRACTICE and COACH their kids on plays that they then go out and EXECUTE on the field of play.

Instead, you come in here WHINING that your kids should be allowed to whoop it up when they finally get 1 play right out of 150 plays in the game.

You want to know what is fun Coach Richt ?

NOT being as you are son 17-19 against Final AP Poll Top 25 teams in your 8 and a half years here.

To say they are one of the most poorly coached teams in the Nation is an understatement. Tragic what has happened to this once great tradition. Martinez, Fabris, and Bobo MUST GO NOW! And if CMR won’t do it, then sadly, this fine man (but proving to be a mediocre coach) must go as well.

I didn’t realize Richt is only 17-19 against teams that finish in the Top 25 (that’s the only poll that matters any way). That says alot. Heck we won 10 games last year but only beat one team in the FINAL Top 25 poll, and that was #25 Michigan State in the bowl (NO, LSU and Arizona State did not finish in the Top 25 last year).

Saint Simons, seriously man do you have a life at all? Do you just sit by your computer every Monday morning so you can blog the score if GA loses? Brilliant my friend. The mere fact that you are so intrigued and into GA’s games every week is clear evidence that you are jealous of the football program that UGA has. By football program I mean, facilities, tradition, huge fan base etc…. I don’t even keep up with Tech because the care factor is zero when it comes to Tech football for me. I have no idea who Tech even played this past weekend, and couldn’t care less. I doubt it was a top 5 team because Tech never plays those types of teams. They play teams like Maryland, The Citadel, etc…. Your hatred for UGA burns deep…..I can tell. It’s clearly linked to the beatings that GA has given Tech over the years. I believe that Richt’s record against the Dorks is 7-1? Correct me if I am wrong. You did beat us last year, and my sincere congrats on that impressive 3 pt victory. You see the difference in Tech and UGA is quite simple. We expect to beat you guys every year (regardless of how we have fared in SEC play), and you guys pop open the champagne when you beat GA by 3 pts. If GA beats Tech by any less than two TD’s, GA fans are furious. I compare it to a bully that rules the neighborhood. Yes, once in a very blue moon the kid being bullyed will fight back and maybe win, but 99.9% of the time the bully will win.

1. Would Tim Tebow get that penalty in that situation?
2. Why hasn’t Tebow ever gotten an excessive celebration penalty for all the arm waving and gator chomping he does, if Charles’ penalty was justified?
3. Would Nick Saban or Urban Meyer have the guts to call out the officials and support their kids?

We have a lot of internal problems, all well documented here, but the officiating has taken a decidedly anti-Georgia flavor since the end-zone dance in 2007. I’m with Tony Barnhart. This one was inconceivable..

When you get sick take your medicine one teaspoon at a time not the whole bottle at once.

The “celebration” rule was put in to stop the taunting, signing an autograph after a TD, cellphone call, and some pretty funny dancing and to encourage better sportsmanship and I agree with this. BUT the celebration calls that happened in the game Saturday are completely irresponsible by the officials not only the one who threw the flag but the whole crew for not conferring and waving each of the last 2 calls off.
I had 2 high school kids with me that were jumping and yelling and cheering and celebrating when AJ scored along with everyone else including every UGA player on the sideline which is what we all should be doing after a play like that.
Celebrating and being “pumped up” by these players is only natural after spending countless hours practicing, working out, running, and busting their butts to be ready to play the game.
The interpretation of this rule is killing the game. These kids should be encouraged to celebrate in a sportsmanlike manner not walk back to the sideline looking like a depressed Zombie!
Come on NCAA remove your arrogance and and correct this problem. What’s next – flag the fans for cheering too much or flag us for doing a dance in the aisle??? My dance Saturday would have been a 30 yarder!
NCAA – If you don’t go back to one teaspoon at a time, then go ahead a drink the kool-aid so we can start over!

UGA loses, and their online fans get sensitive. And that apparently translates to memory loss. Like, everyone talks about 7-1 in the recent past, but no one ever admits it is actually 7-4 in the past 11 years.

Here’s the fix to all UGA’s problems: FIRE MARK RICHT!

Rivals ranks UGA’s classes as such for the last 6 years:

2009 – 6th
2008 – 7th
2007 – 9th
2006 – 4th
2005 – 10th
2004 – 6th

With this kind of talent where are the results? Yes, a couple of SEC titles are nice but today it’s “what have you done for me lately?” And he hasn’t done much lately. Your nemesis in Gainesville has 2 BCS titles in the last 3 years. Even The Mad Hatter has stumbled into 1. With Bama back on the scene and other teams on the rise it looks like UGA is moving back instead of forward.

Oh and quit whining about the officials. They didn’t give up a 40 yard return or miss several tackles on that TD run Scott had. He could have taken that 60 yards and it still would have been a TD.

Did any of these UGA fans noticed that their “hard” or “tough” win opponent from last week lost at home to Oregon State and is last place in the Pac-10. ASU does NOT have a good defense even though that’s all you hear as an excuse for last week coming out of Athens. Now, another weekend of excuses for 13 points against a fair LSU team. Maybe Georgia offense isn’t that good….anyone think of that?

Your offense starts and ends with your line. I thought that this year Seareles had our team ready to dominate? There is no dominating spirit in our present line. Used to quote about the number of “pancake” blocks an individual lineman has during a game. Haven’t heard of any this year! I would move Boling to left tackle. He did a great job there last year. I don’t think that Glenn or Vance are the answer there at that position. Our center, Ben Jones, has been the only player I recall being mentioned as blocking well. Notice the lack of push by the line on short yardage plays? We may have another coordinator to add to the THREE that may not be coaching up to standards. Really, I am not happy with any area of our team on either side of the ball. One thing is for sure, if the offensive line does not block better we easily could lose another four games when added to our other deficit areas. Come on Lineman, I appreciate the job that you are required to do. We need excellence in attitude and drive and tenacity from you. Then our offensive game will start to churn! Go DAWGS!!!!!

Unbelievable all of the talk about firing coaches…Some of these top recruits haven’t played up to their billing, plus they’re still young. Not the coaches fault. CMR is one of the winningest and best coaches in the SEC. Talent level at UGA is down after losing the big three from last year and some just simply havent performed to their billing. How is the coaching any different from 2007 when UGA finshed #2 in the country?! the players played to their potential that year, had some good senior leaders- Adams (Senior), Velasco (Senior), Sturdivant was healthy the whole year, Knowshon, Massaquoi, Stafford, S. Bailey (Senior), T. Brown (senior), Kelin Johnson (Senior), Marcus Howard (Senior)……C’mon folks, get behind these young Dawgs and coaches.

Before we start praising the Defense:

Offensively, LSU’s high mark this season was its 368 yards against Georgia. But piling up yards against the Bulldogs isn’t that big a deal this season. Before that output against Georgia, LSU’s season-high in offense was 330 yards against Louisiana-Lafayette. That’s right Louisiana-Lafayette…the Fightin’ I Have No Idea What Their Mascot Is.

Why do you Georgia fans let St. Simons get to you? Ignore him. Don’t give him the pleasure that he’s gotten under your skin.

Georgia has a lot of talent, more than any of its opponents so far this year. It should be undefeated, but until it inculcates an attitude in its football team that excellence is expected, discipline is demanded, and mistakes will put you on the bench it will continue to muddle along. That is coaching, plain and simple.

Georgia recruits with the best. It just does not coach its recruits to their potential. Tech, on the other hand, has been able to get a lot more out of its personnel. Florida has the luxury of having both. That is why Florida will win its 2nd straight and 3rd out of 4 BCS NCs this year.

Spot the other team 10 points to start the game and take it off the scoreboard at the end and we would win Every game by at least!!! IF WE PLAYED LIKE THAT I bet this team since Richt has been here would be Champions every year!!! This team scores everytime it has to. But they never put anyone away early. Secondary is coached by Martinez!!! Enough said!! Fire him Richt loyalty is gonna get You Fired!!! We HAVE TO PLAY TO WIN INSTEAD OF PLAYING NOT TO LOSE!!!!!!!!!

October 5th, 2009

is an average team, UGA also AVG at best. To all of those who think the excessive celebration calls were meaningless and equal I have some questions. Did Georgia have 1:09 on the clock and down by one? Answer: well less than a minute and down by 7. If you think those are equal scenarios you are either an LSU or GT fan The missed Field goal by Walsh… any ideas why that was much longer than it needed to be? Seems to me it was after the celebration penalty on Charles.

The dawgs left points on the field that better teams will not leave on the field (AJ wide open on a couple of occasions and the missed field goal). I seriously doubt LSU will benefit in any one game as greatly as they did in this game from favorable officiating. When LSU meets a better team with even handed officiating the outcome will be much different.

Go Dawgs

The officiating seem to be very forgiving as evidence by the aggressive play that was allowed by the LSU secondary on AJ in the endzone and White in the endzone and the offensive lineman taht tacled Rennie on Scott’s long run. Which is OK as long as they stay out of the game the entire way rather than insert their presence when it mattered most in what appeared to be a hand selected moment.

History tells us that this crew has had difficulty in the past in UGA games that resulted in a suspension and their poor judgment continues to impact the scenarios in which UGA games are decided

Good point. If the Dawgs want championships, they need to celebrate ONLY in the locker room. Look at Florida. They win championships, and Tim Tebow never celebrates on the field. He just stays calm until he’s in the locker room. Oh, wait a second, that’s COMPLETELY WRONG.

We can’t blame the refs they don’t make us play every team every week play until the last minute!! Last week we should have blown out Arizona state. We need to learn to play and coach for 60 minutes. The refs miss calls every week. They make calls they shouldn’t every week. One penalty should never change the outcome of a game with this team!! We have 2 much talent on offense to only put up 20 points. We should be able to score 40 points every week!! What happened to trying to block a punt instead of trying to return a punt every time??? Why can’t we put the best players on the field on special teams?? If we do this we put some teams away early and it wouldn’t come down to the last minute of a game. I don’t want to hear excuses about injuries!!! They are part of the game. You can get hurt on offense and defense as well!! How may players has Florida got hurt since meyer has been there on special teams???? Doesn’t matter if we get a star player hurt on punt blocks if we block the punt then score does it???? Just got to become more aggressive!!!

Obviously there are issues, and more than a couple may be gone after the season. In all honesty, UGA will probably finish 7-5 or 8-4. Two losses that are certain are Florida and Auburn. I just hope Richt beats Tennessee, because if not, he will be 2-4 his last six. That and another loss to Florida will get a man fired at Georgia (ask Jim Donnan).

Have you forgotten the recent past, post Coach Dooley? Obviously so.
Even Bear Bryant had rebuilding years (I remember a couple of 6-5 seasons in there). There IS still hope for an outstanding season. Even if there wasn’t, you’re not going to be in the top 10 every year. When you lose your QB and top running back to the NFL, it may take a year or two to recover.

BuLLdawg: I take exception to your language. I suspect Coach Richt is not your biological son. Say what you want but don’t speak about “Coach” with such uncivil discourse behind the anonymity of this forum. There are problems with this team, sure. However, when you look at our roster and realize how much youth the staff is working with, not only does the future look bright (2010) but the immediate future should come into focus as well. As a retired coach I understand the process of dealing with young ath. It is never a smooth ride. Two quick points John Wooden, perhaps the greatest coach of all time, took 10 yrs. before he won his 1st nat.ch. at UCLA. Finally, BuLLdawg, Coach Richt is a grown man(well into his 40’s I suspect) and he is OUR coach and I for one am mighty proud he not you represent the DAWGS.

0-4 against top teams in fifteen games. Unranked. Disorganized. In disarray. What is going on at Georgia? It’s the coaching folks and CMR won’t do a thing about it this year and he won’t do a thing about it during the offseason. Georgia football has fallen and no one in position to do anything about it really cares. Look at the stats and tell me that parts of the program are not in disarray and that the coaches we have now are doing even a poor job. Georgia is terrible right now and there’s no sign of change. Fla, Tech, maybe Auburn and maybe one more could have our number. How would a 7-6 season fly in Georgia?
