Pregame update: Bobo in the pressbox; Rambo, Thomas dressed out

Mark Bradley has a live blog going — as I’m sure everybody already knows — so I’m going to stay away from that during the game.

I’ll post some notes here sometime in the second half and put up my running game story as soon as I can after the game.

Otherwise, here’s what I can tell you so far:

  • Mike Bobo was calling plays from the pressbox again on Saturday.  The Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator had been calling plays from the sidelines since October of 2009, when he moved down to the field midway through the season “to get a better feel of things” and talk face-to-face with quarterback Joe Cox after a few poor offensive efforts in a row. Now in his fourth season as Georgia’s offensive coordinator and 11th as quarterbacks , Bobo started out coaching from the press box in 2007 and 2008.
  • Safety Bacarri Rambo and tailback Carlton Thomas are both dressed out and warming up with the team. Thomas, as you all well know, has been suspended for tonight’s game. It has been rumored and actually reported here and there that Rambo, Georgia’s starting free safety, also is. I believe he is, too, and think Mark Richt is just letting them enjoy the pregame experience. But there has been no official confirmation. I’ll let you know if and when it does.
  • CB/PR Branden Smith seemed to be running around without any problem. He sprained a foot last Thursday but didn’t seem hampered in pregame warmups.
  • TB Richard Samuel looks slightly gimpy to me but not to a great degree. Just limping slightly. Personally I think we’re going to see more of freshman Isaiah Crowell anyway.
  • They don’t really look like Georgia but the uniforms are fine, in my opinion. Like Richt said, the players like them. So what.
  • Tight end Orson Charles is rocking a new mohawk, dyed red, of course. Presumably in keeping with UGA’s “spread the red” promotion for the game.

It’s appropriate that Evander Holyfield is at the game. Like most dog players, he’s never been in a college classroom.

UGA’s game plan is horrible. Bobo is good at flag football but horrible at calling an SEC game.
CMR is horrible for allowing such a flawed flag football approach.

It’s to bad CMR put his fate in the hands of his two Coordinators that after this game will have Georgia fans calling for someone head. The Offeense looks the same as in the last bowl game, it sucks and the defense is no better.

Tme to talk to Coach Peterson and Defensive Coordinator Kirby Smart about the soon to be vacant head coaching job @ Georgia.

Mike Bobo is the worst OC I have ever seen, He does not even desreve to be called a coach, because our guys are not learning anything. What is the game plan, why are we out of shape, why do we have so many penalties, we had a year to get ready for this game. CMR enjoy your missionary work!!!

Clearly there are too many inebriated (sorry for the BIG word) rednecks posting here who never darkened the door of a classroom at UGA. However, there is a theme developing here that is right on the money; OUT-COACHED!

I love CMR as a person and appreciate how he protects the honor of out University. As a coach, though, he is consistently out schemed by almost every other coach in the top 25. Bobo is a joke and Grantham is no better. Yes, Boise State is good and Kellen Moore is amazing but can you guys please adjust your game plan before it is too freaking late? The reason BSU won is because Chris Peterson and his staff saw what the Dawgs brought early and made the necessary adjustments. Georgia, on the other hand, did nothing to adjust to BSU. We just kept running the same mindless plays that were NOT working. Apparently CMR, Bobo and Grantham have never heard of the definition of insanity – “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”. Lord I sure hope these guys wake up before next week. If not, hang on for a brutal onslaught that will make the recent Tim Tebow bashing look like childs play!

Coach Mark is going to let his admoration of Bobo cost him a good job at a top college. Bobo has been lucky since he played quarterback at Thomasville High. He wasn’t that good then, had a great line and back field. Bobo needs to gogo. If he doesn’t mark is gone in December.
