Georgia well-represented with 9 selections on Coaches’ All-SEC team

For a team coming off a 6-7 season, Georgia was very well represented on the Coaches All-SEC team released on Thursday.

The Bulldogs placed six players on the first team (the coaches picked three teams). They were quarterback Aaron Murray, tight end Orson Charles, tackle Cordy Glenn, place-kicker Blair Walsh, punter Drew Butler and kick returner Brandon Boykin.

Boykin also made the second-team as a cornerback. Otherwise, Georgia didn’t have much of a presence on that side of the ball. Defensive end DeAngelo Tyson was named to the second team and that was it (that’s kind of ironic since I believe defense will have to carry the Dogs this season, but understandable given all the changes). Senior center Ben Jones rounded out UGA’s resprentation on the second team.

Overall the Bulldogs were tied with South Carolina for third-most players selected to the team behind Arkansas with 14 and Alabama with 13. Georgia’s six first-team players were second to Alabama’s seven.

Here’s the whole list:

One of my pals always says the UGA season rises or falls based on the SC game. If we lose, there’s no hope of winning the SEC East (or greater glory). This year, it looks like the SC game is going to be especially tough. Their defense is well respected with two first-team pre-season All-SEC picks. By contrast, Georgia managed just two on the defenseive side of the ball on the 1st through 3rd teams. It looks like the Dawg’s defense has to earn some respect. That’s a good sign, if you ask me.

Georgia will surprise this year. The loss to Carolina without AJ was closer than most think lat year. I think Lattimore runs into a brick wall this year. Garcia will play after 6 suspensions. Sprurrier is another win at any cost type.

Great news about Samuel. UGA now has a running back that was 3rd string 2 years ago, and delegated to move to defense as the starting r.b this year. Richt and this staff sure “Know what the HELL they are doing”. What a joke this staff and Richt’s program has become

J.B. Richt is the 7th best coach in SEC now, seems about right that this clown shouldn’t be in rivals top 25 coaches. Yet UGA fans think he will turn this sinking program around. Talk about delusional fans. LOL!!

Forgive me for sounding like Roll Tide, but it does make me a bit angry that 3 OL from GA are all-SEC players, but only 1 is a Dawg (granted, Glenn is the best of the group, but still). I understand that we can’t sign every elite player from GA, but I wish we were able to get a larger crop of OL. Theus was a fantastic pickup the other night, but I hope we can get 4 or 5 more by NSD.

Bryant-3 10 win seasons in his first 20 years. 6 more of those same 20 years he won 6 or less games…..

Dooley-3 10 win seasons in his first 16 years, then Herschel arrived

Paterno-6 10 win seasons in first 10 years!

Bowden-2 10 win seasons in first 10 years (not counting at Howard where they played 9 game seasons)

Mark Richt-6 10 WIN SEASONS in 1st 10 YEARS as a head coach!

ONLY Mark Richt and Paterno! The others did HALF as well. Does this show you haters how silly and ignorant and DUMB you are and that you need to keep yor mouth shut and maybe, just maybe do an ABOUT face and SUPPPORT Richt with EVERYTHING you got before you run one of the BEST coaches in NCAA HISTORY out of ATHENS!

Everybody EXPECTED the last 2 years to be down years with Cox at QB and Moreno gone. Then a new freshman QB and New defense and coaches last year plus a weak OL. Last year was a FLUKE and UGA EASILY could have lost only 2 games STILL last year without bad breaks and suspensions. so 6 and 6 was not expected but understandable. The bowl game was TOTALLY Bobo’s fault. All games UGA could have won or were in position to win except the Auburn game but bad breaks, untimely turnovers and penalties and terrible calls by the refs at the WORST time and UGA could have went 9-3, 10-2 or 11-1. Last year was a fluke. Every team goes through a tough spell. UGA is now BACK so PLEASE DO NOT jump back on the UGA or Mark RIcht bandwagon these next 5 YEARS while we are back to winning 10 plus games a year and SEC championships. OK?

Bobo may need to go but Richt? NEVER!

@Columbus, you cannot be serious. Winning 10 in a 13 game season is not the same as winning 10 in a 10 or 11 game season. Also, when the Bear won 6, he went 6-4 vs 6-7 for Richt. Also when the Bear won 10+, it was usually a national title. It’s better to look at the winning percentages and championships.

I’m fairly pleased with Richt’s winning percentage and SEC championships, it is just that I have been less pleased since BVG left, 2007 not withstanding.

Will GA fans accept another 7-5 type season from Richt? I’d like to see our AD stand up and say, “I expect our team to win the East and play for the SEC Championship this year”. I’m afraid we’ll end up with 8-4, another loss to Florida, with Richt keeping his job to continue to “turn things around”.

Brian Van Gorder is long gone…. Maybe Grantham will turn it around for Richt this year. We’ll see in about 6 weeks.
