Notes: More touches ahead for Crowell, safety Williams gets look at LB

ATHENS — Freshman tailback Isaiah Crowell will get his first career start on Saturday against Coastal Carolina. Asked how many times he might like to get the ball in Crowell’s hands, Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo deadpanned, “45!”

He laughed, but Bobo was only half-kidding.

“I’d say he’s 20-25-carries-a-game guy and certain games it might be more,” Bobo said. “And then you’ve got about 15 or so for the other guy. You’d like to run it around 40 times a game, the way I see things. He might be able get 30 of them.”

The true freshman from Columbus got 18 touches in the Bulldogs’ 45-42 loss to South Carolina this past Saturday. He finished with 158 total yards – including 118 rushing – which works out to 8.8 yards per touch. He also scored two touchdowns.

Bobo feels like there’s a lot more production to be tapped. It’s a big reason the Bulldogs are giving Crowell his first career start this Saturday against Coastal Carolina.

“He’s a guy that has gotten better every week that we’ve had him on the practice field and in every opportunity he’s competed, whether it’s a scrimmage or a game,” Bobo said. “Like I said in the preseason, I think he’s going to be a very special player for us. When it happens, you don’t know. But I believe he’s going to be a special player if he continues to work and stay healthy.”

Crowell had started every game of his life since he was 6 years old before sitting behind Richard Samuel in Georgia’s first two games of the season. The 5-foot-11-215-pound athlete took Tuesday’s news in stride.

“Well, it’s not really a big deal to me,” he said of starting. “It’s just another game to go out there and help my team win.”

If Crowell is going to get more work, he’ll need to build up his stamina. Though head coach Mark Richt blamed some of it on a rib injury suffered early in the second quarter, Crowell was asking to come out of the game often against South Carolina.

“When a guy does that, you could say stay in there but you don’t know why a guy wants to come out when he’s asking to come out,” Richt said. “So he came out. I think he’ll stay in a little bit more than a couple of runs. Although there were a couple of relatively long runs, I think his endurance will build as we go, too, as he prepares and as the weather cools as the season goes on.”

Crowell said he recognizes that he needs to get into better shape and “make a better pocket” after a costly fumble against the Gamecocks. But he said he feels more confident than ever that he can make a difference for the Bulldogs.

“My performance in the game boosted my confidence, I guess,” he said. “It takes the pressure off a little bit. I feel better. My confidence is up.”

Shawn Williams works at linebacker

Safety Shawn Williams was observed working with the inside linebackers during Tuesday’s practice and could play there some on Saturday. The Bulldogs lost their starters at both inside positions – Alec Ogletree and Christian Robinson – to foot injuries the first two weeks of the season.

“We’re looking at quite a few guys in there,” defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said. “You’ve got to wait and see what happens. We’ll see, but anybody who has played the down safety can play inside.”

Williams, a 6-1, 220-pound junior from Damascus, started the first two games at strong safety. He’s third on the team with 10 tackles.

Blair Walsh: ‘That was on me’

Senior place-kicker Blair Walsh took full blame for the 33-yard field goal attempt he missed in the first half against South Carolina.

“That was my fault,” he said. “That was on me. I just came in way too close to the ball and just missed it completely. That was a one-and-only-time thing.”

The Bulldogs ended up losing by three points. But Walsh said it’s important not to dwell on that.

“Obviously it would’ve helped, but you don’t think about that,” he said. “You just move on.”

Walsh did say that, after watching game tape, he’s convinced Bacarri Rambo wasn’t offsides on the onsides kick Georgia executed late in the game.

“It didn’t look like it to me,” he said. “It was close but I think the angle the ref was at made it look worse than it was. It was too close to call, if you ask me.”

Compliance director leaving

Eric Baumgartner, Georgia’s compliance director for the past six years, is leaving to take the same post at the University of Virginia.

“He’s from Blacksburg, Va., so he gets to go back home,” said Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity, who said Baumgartner turned in his notice last weekend. “It’s an opportunity for him to go to a great institution that actually doesn’t have a compliance director right now, so he gets to build his own staff. Eric did a great job here. He came in at a really important time for our athletic association where we needed some strong enforcement.”

McGarity now has to make two compliance hires. Baumgartner’s assistant Michelle Francis recently left to join her husband at Ohio University. McGarity said he would hire a director first.

Etc. . . .

Nine true freshmen had seen action for the Bulldogs so far this season. They are: Crowell, defensive back Quintavious Harrow, linebacker Amarlo Herrera, defensive back Nick Marshall, wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, defensive back Corey Moore, defensive back Chris Sanders, cornerback Damian Swann and linebacker Ramik Wilson. There’s a good chance that number could go up this week with outside linebacker Ray Drew, offensive tackle Watts Dantzler and center David Andrews in position to get their first playing time of the season. . . . Coastal Carolina features 19 players from the state of Georgia, including starting center Pat Williams, a 6-foot-1, 285-pound junior out of Atlanta’s Westlake High School.

The quality of our fan base needs to improve as much as Bobo’s play calling did this past week. We need to be a consistent, strong, and supportive fan base. Do it for the players. They are dedicated and work hard. They are our boys.

I’d LOVE to see Crowell get 30 touches a game. That would take so much pressure off Murray and allow the play-action to be that much more lethal. Linebackers and safeties have to respect the run, so they creep up, bite on the play-action, receivers and tight ends get behind them, and then there you go. First down. I love it.

“No bowl birth means no post season money for the school either.”

No bowl berth for SEC schools absolutely does not mean no post-season monies for the school. Vandie gets a cut of all our bowl berths. If I need to explain revenue-sharing let me know. This is just an incorrect statement.

He has mismanaged the players.

He has played Favorites.

He has lost to the good teams.

He has lost to the sorry teams.

He has lied to his fan base.

He has lied to his players.

He has lied to his recruits.

Yes, he is 13-13 vs SEC East teams these last 6 consecutive seasons now.

Yes, he is 14-14 vs all teams these last 28 games, too.

But, he has NEVER beat the top teams when he was considered great and he has ALWAYS lost to the lousy teams, no matter how great our team was that season.

At least the haters can’t diss the dream team calling them busts. Crowell will be no bust, Mitchell will be no bust, and in time, the rest of the dream team recruiting class will make their mark. But the ones we expected to this season are doing just that. Crowell just might be SEC Freshman of the year if he keeps playing like he did last Saturday and if given the right amount of carries, this guy should have no problem going over 1,000 yards for the season.

Head-scratching Losses these 11 years of Mark Richt’s coaching staff :
(All these losses were either to teams who did not end up in the Top 25 that season, or would not have had we not lost these games to them that year.)

2001 LOST to Boston College who was not ranked before bowl, after # 21
2001 LOST to 5-Loss Auburn, not ranked AP Poll Top 25
2002 LOST to 5-Loss Florida not ranked in either Poll, Lost to 6-Loss two 5-Loss
2003 LOST to 5-Loss Florida ended up # 24 in 2003 fired coach but beat us 2003
2006 LOST to 5-Loss Kentucky unranked in any Top 25 Poll obviously
2006 LOST to 4-win Vandie, the 4 wins included their win over Mark Richt
2007 LOST to 6-Loss South Carolina 2007 not even in a bowl game South Carolina
entire season was OVER after losing early to So Car & vols, out of SEC Champ, over
2008 LOST to sorry Ga tek who would not be ranked without the win # 22
They lost to 7-Loss Virginia losing record, but Georgia tek beat us same year 2008
2009 LOST to 6-Loss Kentucky who lost to 5, two 6, and a 7 loss team but beat us
2009 LOST to Okie State who ended up not ranked in the AP Poll Top 25 even
2010 LOST to 7-Loss Colorado, losing record, and they beat us
2010 LOST to Florida a 5-Loss unranked Florida but they too beat Mark Richt again
2010 LOST to Central Florida who would not have been ranked without the win # 22
Southern Mississippi, NC State and Kansas State (7-6) all 3 beat Central Fl, not us

Tally : There are some other glaring losses in the Mark Richt 11-year era, but I leave you with these highlighted games to (1) try to ignore (2) say each of were just 1 game (3) figure out who he had suspended for the game that after the game he said it was the execution of the players we did have to play in the game that cost us the losses and (4) for you to squirm in your chair and come up with some hogwash excuse that you then think explains all these losses to sorry teams, way more than 1 a season for 11 years and counting, while at the same time, having beat no team who ended the season in the AP Poll Top 10 – except 3 years and all 3 of those years lost 4 games, lost 3 games and lost 4 games.

I say we beat SC tomorrow off of hunger and intensity alone. Our goals are still right there. Beat SC and look at the rest of our schedule, we could be 6-1 heading into the Florida to get Ogletree back ready to go vs. Florida. Who knows what could happen? What if we go 11-1 win the SEC title?

Based on what they inherited and really only having one recruiting class so far, I think our defensive staff is doing a great job making strides. We’re not back to the early 2000s yet, but anyone who expected it to happen overnight was not being realistic. Let’s face it- when you look at the lack of depth at LB and lack of playmakers on defense, the guys before them did an even worse job recruiting than we gave them credit for.

Well – UGA’s schedule the remainder of the season – along with the schools he will face being down this year (TN, FL, and likely AU – look what Utah State nearly did to AU) and UGA could very likely win the remainder of their games – save MS. There are no LSU’s, Arkansas, or Alabama’s this year. Besides them – the rest of the SEC that UGA has to play basically sucks. And Tech?? Forget them – Tech will play a close game, but then find a way to lose it at the end (as usual).

Here are the losses to the great teams who actually ended the season in the Top 10 :

2001 LOST to Florida # 3 by two touchdowns
2003 LOST to # 2 AP Poll LSU Biblical proportion blow-out & LOST to LSU twice
2004 LOST to # 2 Auburn in a blow-out
2005 LOST to West Virginia # 5
2008 LOST by a blow-out again to # 1 Florida, again
2008 LOST losing by 31-0 at half us # 1 to Alabama who ended up # 6 after Utah loss, we ended up # 13 AP Poll
2009 LOST by blow-out again to # 3 Florida, again
2010 LOST by blow-out to # 1 Auburn
2011 LOST in blow-out to a team who obviously will end up Top 10 since they play no one who is a ranked team all season long, not 1, unless # 25 TCU can stay there with their 1 sympathy votes after Baylor bears beat them.

Tally : Mark Richt has lost to the Top teams all 11 seasons, and this season is no different. By the way, if you find a season listed above in which Mark Richt did not lose to a team who finished that season in the AP Poll Top 10, it is because he did not even PLAY a team who finished that season in the AP Poll Top 10.

I have no idea what this is all about the defense has had 1 recruiting class only to work with. Mark Richt has been here 11 years, and this is not about Todd Grantham, other than Mark Richt hired him.

4 Losses 2001. Including 2 losses to teams who either did not end up in the Top 25 or would not have without their win over us. Mark Richt bragged that he had knocked the lid off the # 11 all-time 1-A win football program by beating # 4 vols, but he lost 4 games.

2002 The SEC was DOWN, way DOWN. Proof ? In the final Coaches’ Poll, there was only 1 other SEC team ranked in the Top 25, # 14 Auburn. We played one team, Florida, whom our offense – which has averaged the # 52 Total Offense all 10 years and is # 52 again for 2011 – our lousy offense made 0 of 11 on 3rd Down Conversions for the whole entire game. Notice if you will please that that lousy team did not even make it into the final Coaches’ Poll Top 25, even with their win over us.

2003 was a most disappointing season. We lost 3 games. LSU beat us. UAB had us beat. Florida beat us, again and then fired their head coach for it. And, we were humiliated in the Georgia Dome 34-13. I am sorry, that is not pretty good.

2004 was David Greene’s senior season. In his 4 years he beat 1 team who finished in the AP Poll Top 10 and lost 4 games that season. Before the Florida game, South Carolina and Marshall both had us on the ropes. After that, with the DISNEYdawgs.com posting how great we were squeaking past Marshall and South Carolina, we go out the next week and lose to another coach who got fired for it, the vols, again at HOME. Our season was over; we were already eliminated from The SEC Championship. In his 4th try, he finally beat Florida one time. Then, we squeaked by Arkansas, squeaked by Florida, and before we squeaked by a lousy Georgia tek, we got BLOWN OUT by Auburn 6-24. If you think that was pretty good, you must not have liked my posts that season in here.

2005 we beat # 6 LSU in The SEC Championship Game. Great stuff. Only, like Boise State, we went to the Sugar Bowl and before I could sit down and stop booing Michael F. Adam$, the score was 28-0 in route to our loss at the Dome. The only difference in that and Boise State at the Dome, is I got a $20 T-Shirt that reads Bust Boise, with their 28 consecutive points too. Problem with the win over # 6 LSU in The SEC Championship Game is that both LSU and Alabama finished ranked higher than Mark Richt in the final AP Poll. Mark Richt ended up the # 3 ranked team in The SEC 2005. Oh, did I mention the lies of how great Joe Tereshinski III would be in Jacksonville, and our loss there, again ? Then, we followed that showing up with having to put DJ back in vs Auburn where he wasn’t 100 percent and we LOST to Auburn too. Pretty good ? For DJ, yes. For Mark Richt ? Absolutely not pretty good.

Where are we up to now ? Let’s see 2006.

2006 make Matthew Stafford # 3 QB on the depth chart behind both Joe Tereshinski III and Joe Cox. Lose to 4-win Vandie Lose to Colorado – excuse me yanked Matthew Stafford and squeaked out that win. Squeak past Ole Miss. This is where our football program is nowadays, trying to make it how great Mark Richt is in wins, without discussing the losses and nobodies he has beat. vols BLOW US OUT. Squeak by Missy State. Lose to Florida, again. Lose to Kentucky again. Pretty good ? Well, we beat # 9 Auburn. Hey look what a great coach Mark Richt is he beat # 9 Auburn. Is this really a pretty good season ? Absolutely NOT.

2007. Beat by a 6-6 South Carolina team not even in a bowl game. BLOWN OUT by vols who were at best an average team, which is more than can be said for South Carolina. The season OVER. Before it even started. Knocked out of The SEC Championship by nobodies. Soft Schedule. Beat not 1 single team who finished in the AP Poll Top 10, while LSU beat 2 teams who finished in the Top 10 in 2007; but according to RICHT-0-FILES Mark Richt got screwed by the BCS. Who did we beat ? Who did LSU beat ? Who did we lose to ? Don’t try to tell me that UGA should have played for the MNC and not LSU; you will not get anywhere in that discussion with this HOMER dawg fan.

2008. Ranked # 1 by every single poll for the 1st time ever in our entire history. That night, 22 players go out on the town celebrating it. We lose to all 3 teams we play. We beat no one. Again. All 3 losses, we give up 29, 31, and 42 consecutive points and end up # 13 in the AP Poll. Had we started out # 13, we would have finished not in the Top 25, where we should have been ranked. Did I mention a lousy Georgia tek beat us ?

2009. Joe Cox throws the deep ball better than any QB, with his chronic shoulder unable to practice 1 day every single week of the season. Gets the flu flies to Stillwater in a private charter. Still the only QB to play, when we know we have injured Aaron Murray and clearly should have played Zach Mettenberger for at least 1 snap to separate him from Aaron Murray. I’ll not even go into all the games we lost 2009. Okie State who did not end up in the AP Poll Top 25. LSU. BLOW OUT by the vols again. BLOW OUT by Florida again. Kentucky beat us again.

2010. Have to go back all the way to 1953, fifty eight years ago to find an UGA team who lost more than we lost last year.

2011. Dream Team. Addition by Subtraction of 26 scholarship players who got kicked off this team in the last year alone. 0-1. If Mark Richt loses Saturday will not have a winning record vs SEC East teams the last 6 seasons, standing at 13-12 over the last entire 5 seasons, as it is.

PRETTY GOOD ?

SEC Championship ? DOWN SEC 2002 is not Mark Richt’s fault but is it GREAT that the only other SEC team to finish being ranked in the Coaches’ Poll Top 25 for all of 2002 is # 14 Auburn – a 4-Loss team ?

Problem with the win over # 6 LSU in The SEC Championship Game is that both LSU and Alabama finished ranked higher than Mark Richt in the final AP Poll. Mark Richt ended up the # 3 ranked team in The SEC 2005 in the Final AP Poll. SEC Championship ?

These are his ONLY SEC Championships ?

SEC Championships All-Time :

1. Alabama
2. vols have 1 more SEC Championship than UGA

drbasic, sir, these are not STATISTICS – they are called instead our record, our won/lost record; who we in fact LOST to and who we in fact beat. Wins and Losses are not Statistics. Statistics are that little Aaron Murray averages 1 yard per carry for his entire career.

As for hater, we submit you are the hater, with porous, poorly thought out name-calling, begging that Mark Richt stay through the end of the year so that he can now play the 10 CUPCAKES that fill our schedule the entire rest of the season, including – but not limited to – the lousy bowl game opponent we get as a result, for the year # 11 in a row.

result,cant beat out a guy that couldnt beat out anybody last year,but enter jenkins,now he is all world,the only time I heard his name called during games was when he had ice on his shoulder.
Brande Smith is two for two,in both games he missed a tackle that went for a td,Please put him on offense,he just may have a future there.
Finally,why is malcolm mitchell playing behind taveras king .

I have seen the future. Choakdawg collapses from eating 300 krispy kreme`s on Saturday, falls on Crowell and smothers him to death before Richt notices anything is amiss.

In his post game conference Richt says oh well —- happens.

I love how the delusional Richt lovers keep spewing stats over how overwhelmingly the fan support for him is – young, old, whatever. I’ve been to almost every game since 1971, and the people I know from all ages and backgrounds can’t wait for a regime change. The media didn’t do this to Richt, he did it to himself. I’m a loyal fan and always will be. I love Athens and everything that is UGA. That’s why I can’t stand watching an inept (and stubborn) coaching staff pound this great team into oblivion.

Dogs will be alright. Slowly but surely Richt is righting the ship. It may not look it but the tide has turned. Give Richt and the team the rest of the year. Support them for two more months. If the wins don’t come then jump off the ship. Next year will be the year. Richt deserves the chance. It’s his team, he made his bed, let him lie in it. On another note, put Ray Drew at OLB and move Chase Vasser inside.
