Tim,
Can you address the question as to why Richt schedules one spring practice before spring break, and then complains about how everyone, including coaches, mentally and physically check out, which makes it hard to get focused again on football when they return. If its a problem, why doesn’t he just change the schedule of spring practice to start after spring break. Seems like a simple solution since he himself indicated that its almost counter productive.

observor: I don’t think Richt’s point yesterday about spring break was as much about the one practice before the break as it was about the offseason strength and conditioning program building up toward spring practice, then being interrupted for spring break. As for why one practice before spring break, Richt said earlier it has to do with his desire to get in the allotted 15 practices by G-Day while generally sticking to a Tues-Thurs-Sat schedule. Also, I think there is some benefit under NCAA rules as far as allotted meetings time to extend spring practice into the week before spring break.

It is so adorable how you think UGA is going to win the SEC.
March: “Oh, yeah! This is the Year!”
December: “Wait til next year! We are going to be loaded!”

It looks like Richt reminded the team to avoid planning home invasions and carrying them out while being armed.

I wish I had thought of that.

Coach addressed that issue last year when he was asked. He said that the rules are so finicky that by doing it that way you are allowed one or two extra days for spring drill.

First two games are tough obviously. Also, Tennessee essentially has three weeks to prepare for Dawgs (if you don’t count the Buffalo game which is a “just show up game. And Ms State has a couple of extra days to prepare with that Thursday night game. The rest of the schedule sets up nicely though.

Love the OOC schedules of most teams. Talk about scheduling cream puffs

UT: Montana, Buffalo, MTSU, and Cincinatti (terrible OOC schedule)
UF: FAU, UAB, Furman, FSU (Continuing the tradition of scheduling nobody outside of FSU)
Auburn: Utah St., FAU, Samford, Clemson (outside of Clemson a total joke)
Alabama: Kent St., Penn St, N. Texas, Georgia Southern (outside of Penn St a total joke)
Arkansas: Missouri St., New Mexico, Troy, Texas A&M (not that bad with the last two)

South Carolina has a dream schedule! They don’t have two tough opponents in a row the whole season! They also skip out on LSU and Bama from the West.

Florida has a tough stretch of Bama, LSU, and Auburn back to back. Looks like there is no way around it; Dawgs fate lies in the game vs South Carolina.

observor,
The reason Richt scheduled one practice prior to Spring Break was because by doing that, it allowed them to meet (not practice) over Spring Break. It is actually quite brilliant. I would easily trade the practice before Spring Break and the first one after Spring Break (because they stink) for an extra week of meeting time. You can often learn just as much if not more by meeting. Still have two full weeks of practice. And why shouldn’t he complain about concentration issues and other problems? That has been part of the problem in the past; making excuses everywhere and for everything. Hold these guys to a high standard.

Did the Dogs meet in Jamaica over spring break? I guess this means that Richt will continue the pool party frolick philosophy in preparation for Boise State and SC.

usc jimi – my bad, I missed that. You are right. that is a tough three game stretch – they get a bye before the Tennessee game (that stretch)which will help. Florida has Vandy the week before going to South Carolina. That Florida game has to scare ya huh? With the revenge factor from last year’s beatdown in Gainesville and being at the end of the year, Florida’s coaches should have them gelling. People lose sight that Florida has a roster full of top five recruiting classes including the #1 from a year ago. I hate to say it, but I think Florida loses to Bama, S.C goes undefeated until the Gator/Carolina game and then that game is for the East.

Dawgs “should” be loaded for the running game with a veteran offensive line and a stable of backs including Ealey, Malcome, and Crowell. Of course we have said that the last two years so we’ll see.. I cannot figure out how we are going to pass the ball though. We saw what happened last year without Green; now we miss Green and Durham. I just don’t see it won’t look like the same anemic attack we saw at the beginning of the season. Hopefully, we can be efficient at running and passing to the tight ends. that philosophy will move the ball slowly, eat clock, rest the defense, and help our young backs not have to sit out as much due to the need for so much pass blocking.

HumpinLex, that is a typical Humper reply, use someone else to do what your boys can’t. Course when the Champ gets through with Jumbo this year in the Swamp with a coaching staff that is not retired then it will start another 7 or 8 year run over the squaws.

Spokesman for the SEC East – I don’t think there will be another 7-8 year run either way for the Noles/Gators. That series is about to look like it did in the 90s. Jimbo has things rockin’and rollin’ in Tallahassee. This past year he even got a few of his players to “explore their options” elsewhere to free up room for incoming recruits. translation – he is getting recruits coming in and bumping Bowden’s veteran players before it even starts! Noles will be good next year and in 2012 will be ready to make a run for it all.

So far, no criminal issues have arisen during spring break. Think maybe the one practice prior also included a sermon on behavior?

People hyping up the first 2 weeks of the schdule as both being brutal games are way off.. UGA is going to blow Boise Out of the Dome.SC, UF, Tennessee (basically has 2 bye weeks before us), Mississippi State will all be much more difficuly games for us to win than a Boise team void of play makers and athletes (outside of kellen Moore who will have no one to throw too and a 5 foot 10 270 pound center going up against a 6 foot 4 335 pound John Jenkins )
the SECOND game is the toughest game by far on the schedule. Don’t be surprised to see a blowout in week 1 and then turnaround and loose a close game to SC, either way the SC is the one to worry the most about by far

Last year all the Ga home games but Tech were at noon /1230 tv time slot because we sucked.and those early starts really screw up a good tailgate. Last year nobody got to their parking spot til 11, it was awful.

Looking at next years schedule of home games, I think we have a shot at a night game for Auburn,Miss St, and SC. even if only two of those get out of the 12/1230 slot, thats better than last year. the Fla game looks to be the only shot at a 330 game on CBS.

IMO, 9-3 is the bare minimum acceptable record for Ga in 2011 . Here is my logic.

6 games we have no business losing: Vandy, Ky, Tenn, Ole Miss, N Mx St, and Coastal Carolina (still cant believe they are on the schedule..pathetic). Those aren’t just bad teams, they are VERY bad teams.We better go 6-0 on these cupcakes.

That leaves 6 games, I rank them by my perception of toughness

1-Florida in Jax
2-SC in Athens
3-Boise St in Atlanta
4T- Miss State in Athens
4T-Auburn in Athens
6-Tech in Atlanta

Of the 6 toughest games, there is only one true road game and its in Atlanta. Only one is outside of Ga and that’s just across the border (3 in Athens, BSU in the Ga Dome, Tech in Atlanta and the 50/50 crowd in Jax.) To me, a split of those 6 at 3-3 would be disappointing, but doing just that should put UGA at 9-3.,(assuming 6-0 vs the cupcakes). anything less and there is gonna be trouble .

Should be a guaranteed 7 wins on that schedule. I count Aub and Tenn amongst those.

On a related note, has anybody seen how huge the team has gotten? Christian Robinson is even up to 230. Christian Robinson! Cornelius Washington is up to 270: dirty. Both D-Ends are hovering around 310. Kwame Geathers is up to 350. O-Line has gotten huge. DBs are big. Jarvis Jones is now at 240. I realize that this program is designed partially to put on excess weight so that it may be shed b/w now and the season opener. I also realize that some of these statistics have been inflated, but still. The point is that there have been some drastic changes to the strength, and that should fill every UGA fan w/ a lot of hope that there have been some serious and much needed improvements. The days of 220 lb starting linebackers are OVER!

The question is, will UGA have an above .500 record at any point in the 2011 season? Maybe, if they beat Ole Miss.

The gawga leghumpers will lose big to Boise, Mississippi St, Florida and Auburn. They’ll also lose to South Carolina, probably Ole Miss, Tennessee and Kentucky. They’ll get a win against Coastal Carolina, Vandy, New Mexico and GT. But we also thought they’d surely beat UCF and they’re coming into 2011 worse off then 2010. :D

I think the SEC dominance of the BCS will stop at Auburn’s national championship at least for a year. UGA will not participate in the SEC or BCS championship in 2011 for sure and then after CMR is gone and the new coach comes in and admits that there are significant issues at UGA you can plan being out of the SEC or BCS race for many many years.
