Postscripts from Shreveport

The season began in Stillwater and ended in Shreveport. Along the way, five games were lost and three coaches were fired. And two  graduate assistants got the opportunity of a lifetime.

Granted, yesterday’s 44-20 Independence Bowl victory over Texas A&M isn’t going to hold much of a place in Bulldogs history. But if it is remembered at all years or decades from now, it’ll probably be fondly recalled as the odd little game in which two young grad assistants successfully filled in as major-college coaches on a short-handed staff.

Mitch Doolittle and Todd Hartley probably will go on to long and successful coaching careers, but they’ll never forget December 2009, when their mentors were fired and they were temporarily thrust into the role of helping prepare a defense to face the nation’s fifth most prolific offensive team.

They were savoring the experience — and the result — on Monday night.

“I told the guys in my little pregame speech that I’ve been excited this much only three times in my life,” Hartley said. “My wedding day, the day I graduated from the University of Georgia, and today when I woke up knowing this game was going to kick off at 4 o’clock Central time.”

Said Doolittle: “It was really a great experience because as a G.A. you’re a coach but you’re not a coach. You have to do a lot of the grunt work. So when you get your number called to be a real football coach, it’s extremely exciting because that’s our goal. It’s extremely exciting to finally realize that in some ways. Obviously I’m not a coach, but I was for this month.”

After Mark Richt fired coaches Willie Martinez, John Jancek and Jon Fabris on Dec. 2, someone had to fill in.  Hartley, 24, and Doolittle, 25, were in the right place at the right time. Doolittle spent the month coaching the linebackers, Jancek’s old job, and Hartley the defensive backs, part of Martinez’s old job.  Yesterday, Doolittle was on the field, joining Rodney Garner, the only defensive coach still on staff, in calling defensive plays. Hartley was upstairs in the coach’s box, where Jancek used to be stationed.

“I was telling some of the guys, ‘Look, this is my last day as a full-time coach. Tomorrow I’m a G.A. again,’” Hartley said. “It was an unbelievable experience.”

Georgia gave up a ton of yards to Texas A&M -– 471  on a whopping 92 plays, as a matter of fact. But the Dogs got big plays on defense, especially second-half interceptions by Sanders Commings and Reshad Jones,  and allowed just two touchdowns while it mattered, the Aggies’ third coming with just over a minute to play and Georgia leading 44-14.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the kids,” Doolittle said. “We put a plan in place and they executed it – just played old-school Georgia football. It was really fun to watch. A great cap to this 2009 season.”

“Give the credit all to the players,” Hartley said. “It was never about us. It was never about who’s coaching them. Coaches have an impact to a certain extent, but when it comes down to it, players make the plays. They had to buy in. They did. We were wondering if they were going to respect us. They did.”

Hartley and Doolittle earned Bulldog Nation’s respect.

——————————–

Independence Bowl postscripts:

– Despite being held scoreless until the final three minutes of the first half, Georgia posted its highest-scoring bowl game ever. The 44 points topped the previous high of 41 against Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl following the 2007 season.

– Georgia also tied the school record for touchdowns in a bowl with six, previously achieved in the Jan. 1, 1942, Orange Bowl.

Geno Atkins, who blocked a second-quarter field goal and finished with three tackles and one sack, and Aron White, who caught two touchdown passes, were named the game’s defensive and offensive MVPs, respectively.

Joe Cox threw two touchdown passes, both to White, to finish with 24 for the season. That ties Cox with D.J. Shockley (2005) and Eric Zeier (1993 and 1994) for second place in the Georgia record book for TD passes in a season, behind only Matthew Stafford’s 25 in 2008.

– Georgia had 27 yards rushing in the first half –- but  finished the game with 208.

– After Texas A&M tied the game 14-14 early in the third quarter, Georgia scored 30 unanswered points to take a 44-14 lead.

– Texas A&M defensive end Von Miller, the nation’s sack leader with 17, had none Monday, a tribute to the play of Georgia left tackle Clint Boling.

Brandon Boykin’s 81-yard kickoff return for a touchdown was a big moment in the game, coming immediately after Texas A&M took a 7-0 lead late in the second quarter.  “We were so euphoric after scoring, and that just took it away,” Aggies coach Mike Sherman said. It was Boykin’s third kick return for a touchdown this season, matching the SEC single-season record set by Tennessee’s Willie Gault in 1980.  Boykin on the return: “They kicked it short, and the blockers did a great job of opening it up. It parted like the Red Sea. It was just a straight shot, really, and I had two blockers in front of me.”

A.J. Green played for the first time since injuring his shoulder against Auburn on Nov. 14 and appeared rusty.  He caught six passes for 57 yards but dropped two deep balls he said he should have handled and was tripped up just before turning two screen passes into major gains.

– Right tackle Josh Davis didn’t play because of a sprained ankle and seemed sorely missed when Georgia ran for only 27 yards in the first half.

– The win was Richt’s 90th in nine seasons at UGA. He’s 90-27, including 7-2 in bowls.

DJ SHOCKLEY had 24 Passing Touchdowns and 4 Rushing Touchdowns for 28 Touchdowns his SENIOR YEAR. Please do not compare this SEC CHAMPION with Joe Cox or Matthew Stafford. DJ threw 5 Interceptions his SEC Championship Senior Year. No UGA QB has EVER had 28 Touchdowns in a Season except for DJ Shockley. Try learning something about UGA before you put pen to paper Tim Tucker. DJ Shockley is NOT SECOND TO ANYBODY TIM TUCKER, especially not Matthew Stafford who led the league in turnovers and never won a damn thing.

8 or more UGA Wins every season from 1997 to 2009. No program but us has accomplished this.

GA tek has failed to achieve 8 wins 6 of these 13 seasons in a row UGA has.

2 programs have More Bowl Wins than UGA.

GA tek is NOT one of the 2.

132-33 Texas starting 1997. Loss to Alabama not included.

131-32 Boise State starting 1997. play BYU.

128-33 Ohio State starting 1997. play Oregon.

128-38 Florida starting 1997. play Cincinnati.

125-40 UGA starting 1997.

125-41 Virginia Tech starting 1997. play vols.

125-43 Oklahoma starting 1997. play Stanford.

122-42 Southern California starting 1997.

118-47 Florida State starting 1997. play West Virginia.

117-45 Miami of Florida starting 1997. play Wisconsin.

117-49 Nebraska starting 1997. play Arizona.

116-48 Tennessee vols starting 1997. play Virginia Tech.

115-48 LSU starting 1997. play Pennsylvania State.

114-51 Wisconsin starting 1997. play Miami of Florida.

113-48 Michigan starting 1997. NO BOWL GAME.

111-47 TCU starting 1997. play Boise State.

111-49 Oregon starting 1997. play Ohio State.

108-48 Utah starting 1997.

106-58 GA tek starting 1997. play Iowa.

Both of these 2 programs could move ahead of GA tek after their bowl games this year :

105-54 West Virginia starting 1997. play Florida State.

105-56 Auburn starting 1997. play Northwestern.

This program has not been good, now has it ?

104-55 Pennsylvania State starting 1997. play LSU.

There are Four (4) College Football Programs which have done better than UGA starting 1997, but :

TEXAS only won 4 games in 1997.

Boise State only won 4 games in 1997 too, and only 6 games in 1998.

Ohio State only won 7 games in 2001.

And, Florida only won 7 games in 2004 when they then hired Coach Urban Meyer, now gone.

4 programs who have done better than UGA the last 13 years starting 1997, but all 4 have had WORSE SEASONS than UGA had this season.

GA tek is Number 19 football program starting 1997, the last 13 years now. And, GA tek in the 13 years of going to a bowl game as has UGA, GA tek has failed to achieve as many as 8 WINS SIX (6) SEASONS starting 1997.

Only Alabama and Southern California have MORE BOWL WINS than UGA’s 26. And, UGA has a better winning percentage than Alabama in Bowl Games, while Southern California has feasted on the lousy Big 10 in the Rose Bowl.

ACC now stands at 84-86-2 All-Time in Bowl Games.

SEC now stands at 191-150-9 All-Time in Bowl Games.

And, while both UGA and GA tek have both been now this season, to 13 Bowl Games in a Row now, Georgia Tech has LOST 7 (MORE THAN HALF) of the 13 Consecutive Bowl Games representing the STINKING ACC. UGA is 11-2. GA tek 5-7.

By the way, the Attendance to the SOLD OUT Shreveport Independence Bowl UGA has NEVER LOST in, was greater than the Attendance at ANY GA tek home game this year.

UGA may well have the most players in the NFL next season.

UGA loses a QB who never did a damn thing but beat GA tek, 2 receivers who never did a damn thing, an OL who never did a damn thing, 4 Defensive Tackles 3 of whom are going to the NFL, a Defensive End who was injured for 5 years and accomplished nothing, 2 linebackers who were injured for 4 and 5 years and accomplished nothing, a Safety and a Cornerback neither of whom ever covered 1 man on 1 pass.

The way I see it, we lose 3 Defensive Tackles of the 13 Seniors. We always lose underclassmen to the NFL too. We have 2 open Scholarships 13 seniors and then the underclassmen going on the NFL. We have 20 commitments, too bad, because I sure would like to hit the trail to Gainesville January 8 and get me some of the 8 Top 37 Recruits in the Country who SAID they wanted to play for Urban Meyer, who now CANNOT. There is NO WAY URBAN MEYER WILL EVER COACH AGAIN. And, if Steve Addazio is going to be the HEAD COACH OF FLORIDA 3 days from now, having scored 17 fewer points each game of the 8 common opponents that Dan Mullen and Steve Addazio were the Florida Offensive Coordinators for the last 2 seasons, then by God Florida will LOSE RECRUITS.

I sure hope we hand the ball off and throw to Chapas and Munzenmaier next season. Both of them are going to the NFL too. 45 NFL Bulldogs today, 13 seniors, plus the underclassmen declaring for the Draft. And, then the AJ-C talks about 4 GA tek NFL draft possibilities with GA tek 25 NFL players.

Rodney Garner and Coach Richt, here is YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION :

Go get these Florida Recruits who said they want to play for Urban Meyer and now, NEVER WILL :

MACK BROWN King High Lithonia GA 4.38 in the 40-yard dash 5-Star Running Back ranked the Number 5 RB in the Nation by Scout.com.

NEIRON BALL Jackson High Jackson GA 6’ 4” 210 lbs. 4.5 in 40-yard dash, Linebacker, ranked the Number 16 Outside Linebacker in the Nation by Scout.com.

JORDAN HAYDEN 4.4 Number 23 Safety 4-Star from Maryland.

JOSHUA SHAW 4.5 from California Number 6 Cornerback in the Nation.

There, that should about do it. 4 for you gentlemen to go get January 8. Perhaps you know if the rest of the players from the state of Florida were always going to be Florida Gators no matter what, but these 4 said they wanted to play for Urban Meyer with his brain cyst and confused brain and with his heart valve chest pains.

If 1 of our 20 is a soft commitment, just tell him sorry, his spot was filled while he sat on the fence and withdraw his Scholarship.

There are 2 ways to make a sale. If you make a sale, that’s a sale.

If you make a sale and it is against your Strongest Competitor, that is a SALE for YOU and a NOT SALE FOR THEM. That is TWO (2) SALES COMPARED TO YOUR ARCH RIVAL. Got it ?

Urban, we all wish you the best, certainly question this Steve Addazio and thanks for all the great games you had for us ALL sir. Now, please go take care of your health and live a long and prosperous life. If Florida Jeremy Foley puts you ever back on the field, I will assist in the lawsuit. You’re not well. I wish it were not true. Clearly, it is. Now, go beat Cincinnati. And, tell Jeremy Foley to hire a real coach. Steve Addazio. Really. If I were you, I would have FIRED HIM this year as OC. 17 points FEWER than Dan Mullen in the 8 common opponents of last year and this year, and just who in the hell chose that bald-headed perennial tight ends’ coach with no NFL playing or coaching experience as UF Head Football Coach ? Good Lord.

UGA hires NFL coach to be our Defensive Coordinator. I will take any of them, except for Brian VanGorder.

UGA Bowl Winning Percentage now stands at .611.

GA tek Bowl Winning Percentage now stands at .595.

GA tek is now 4 Bowl Wins short of UGA.

38-4 against non Conference opponents

In bowl games 7-2

90-27 Coach Richt in total, 9 seasons.

Only 2 programs have more bowl wins than UGA.

Over the last 13 years, 4 programs are better than UGA, but all 4 had a worse season than UGA just had.

Joe Cox is the only UGA quarterback starting with Mike Bobo in 1997 to have UGA NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25. 13 years of better QB than Joe Cox.

GA tek now 4 bowl wins fewer than UGA.

8-1 versus GA tek for Coach Richt Era 9 seasons.

We only lose 3 Defensive Tackles from this team. Urban Meyer is done no matter what, now. Get your brain cyst and heart pains taken care of Urban and don’t lie to your recruiting class, clearly # 1 in the nation. Thanks for the good memories and great games Coach Urban Meyer.

8 wins is a lot more than some expected going into the Yellow Maggot game.

We get a ton back, next year, and maybe Rennie decides to stay.

If we get a good DC, and I think we will,combined with a good QB and I think we have that too and we could do some damage, next year.

It is so obvious that Willie Martinez cost the Dawgs a 10+ win season with his awful defensive schemes and coaching. The defense and special teams were outstanding without Martinez, Fabris and Jancek screwing them up. The Independence Bowl proved how incompetent those 3 coaches were. If they had been still coaching the Dawgs may have lost the game, but without them the Dawgs win by 24 points, showcasing their true athletic ability!

Congratulations on winning the Shreveport bowl. But questions still remain like how many dog fans deer hunted this morning before driving back.

Hey, Joe Cox's shadow....

December 29th, 2009
8:04 am

…the players may have had to get to Shreveport on their own but they were compensated for the trip. The NCAA only allows the players to be compensated back to campus, or to the site of the game. Hence, if the players drove they EACH received .55 per mile; if 4 of them rode together and shared the gas, then they each received approx. $385 a piece, less their share of the gas costs. They also had the option to fly into Shreveport without their paying anything, but college kids being poor, I am sure most drove.

So, your worry that the coaches, players and managers had to pay their own way is completely bogus!

Is he going to be a spokesperson for “Just For Men” now? Could CMR’s ego be getting a little too inflated? Don’t crow too much about beating Texas A&M….they looked like a high school team from what I saw.
