My postgame video report from Sanford Stadium:
October 1st, 20119:04 pm
Flat Tire on I-95 in Jacksonville
October 1st, 20119:07 pm
2nd or 3rd
Grantham’s Junkyard defense saves Bo Bo, Richt, and Murray’s mistakes… get better on offense… why does Murray continue to Play after 3 interceptions ????
October 1st, 20119:08 pm
4th or 5th
October 1st, 20119:09 pm
Because we like mediocrity
Just like Richt is not concerned getting the ball to Crowell 30 times
October 1st, 20119:12 pm
Looks like Dabo Sweeny at Clemson understands what the hot seat means
Th o- line could block for him a little longer. The o- line seems to get a good push on running plays but just get blown by on pass protection.
October 1st, 20119:14 pm
Flat tire I just read crowell’s wrist gave him problems today that’s why his carries dropped off in 2 nd half
October 1st, 20119:26 pm
Post your favorite bobo calls from today’s game:
What a debacle. No discipline.
October 1st, 20119:31 pm
Nomo your web sight sucks!
October 1st, 20119:33 pm
I understand that but Im quoting what Richt said
Just giving the an example; like not going for 4th and 1 is another example of why this team is not going to win the big ball games
Because we continue not to utilize our best players and our coach sends messages to our team that we are not good enough to make a couple of inches
October 1st, 20119:36 pm
@ flat tire I do agree we should have went for it on forth. Idont remember the last time we went with the double tight set with 2 fullbacks and a running back and powered for a yard or two.
October 1st, 20119:38 pm
@ flat tire. Don’t get why our o line can run block good but can’t pass block worth a crap
October 1st, 20119:54 pm
Our offense is poorly coached
Murray should have been benched today just to get his head back in the game. Also
Murray is keying in on one reciever now and never takes his eye off that one reciever yet this staff has done nothing to correct it
He wasnt doing that last year go back and look at the games
Our defense looks like its coming together
Ive been pretty happy since the 1st game. Everyone slammed me about saying our D looked better against Boise because we were in the ball game but Bobo kept our D out there too long and Boise took advantage
I still think we are 1 season away from being real good on D but offense its the same mess week after week
angry mangy mutt

Opening holes for a back is to Olinemen what throwing the ball is to a qb. Pass protection is a bit more complicated than knocking the guy in front of you on his butt. This is why often times the big boys are quite smart and usually in better shape than our guys.
October 1st, 201110:01 pm
Georgia Tech rules day with perfect record.
October 1st, 201110:06 pm
@ Flat tire I have been saying for a while now if we could just put a complete game together offense defense and special teams that would help us grow and get better fast
October 1st, 201110:10 pm
@ angry mutt I wonder if our o- line to big I saw today they are the biggest o line in football counting the pros
October 1st, 201110:15 pm
I totally agree about the complete game but we will never do it
Why didnt we throw to Figgens, when that has been a success why do we continue to run Carlton Thomas up the middle and not to the outside
Why do not go for it on 4th and inches especially in the redzone
Why do we not use a fullback on 4th and inches
Why dont we sit Murray to get his act together, sometimes you have to get a players attention
October 1st, 201110:16 pm
Well flat tire maybe u should go pull for another team and stfu.Seriously dude u are becoming a douche
October 1st, 201110:21 pm
Flat tire I agree with that. Future looks bright though. Do tou think they should try to get a medical redshift for ogaltree this year? The new freshmen looks good at lb and Robinson is back now to.
October 1st, 201110:22 pm
Well it look like UGA has a chance to win the east again….
October 1st, 201110:28 pm
Mark it down you heard it here first! Wisconsin is going to be national champs this year!
October 1st, 201110:33 pm
I believe that is part of the problem. Our guys are not just big, they are a sloppy kind of big. Skinny arms and big guts. Not hating, just stating a fact.
I agree with most of that. Figgins is potentially a nasty weapon. CMR simply does not have the stones to be anything but conservative these days, but it has to dig at the big uglies a bit that they are not trusted with the athletes around them.
I think the Carlton Thomas up the middle is not such a bad idea. He hits the whole quicker than the other backs and if he clears he has the entire field to work with. The OL simply is not great, so blocks are not held long enough to let a much less explosive back through.
October 1st, 201110:36 pm
Nebraska is no where near a top ten team.Totally over rated.
Please come up with something better than your stupid shut up comment you know something with substance
you trailer trash, beer drinking, I sit on my porch with my binoculars and watch UGA games from my neighbors tv bum
October 1st, 201110:43 pm
Flat tire – Your appointment with a psychologist is tuesday at 2 pm.
Please attend and get the serious help you so clearly need.
where is ADMoron?
October 1st, 201110:46 pm
Nice to actually win a halfway difficult game for a change. Clearly, miss st was vastly overrated before the season, but it’s still a decent win for us. Murray was horrible and the o-line couldn’t block me but we pulled it off.
It will take a better overall game, obviously, to have a shot next week, but at least it’s not clearly hopeless. Still can’t see us winning in Knoxville.
October 1st, 201110:47 pm
SOUTHGADAWG88 – They need a qb who can throw consistently well. With what they have they might as well return to the ole Big Red option. I know some will say it is outdated, they said that before that beast of a squad showed up from ‘93-’97. They stomped the who’s who of college football except that game the officials bailed out FSU in 93…the only worse games that was as poorly officiated were the SB with Seahawks/Steelers and every Ohio St game I watched in ‘02 season. Maybe the 08 game in Jax was on par.
In the Big 12 they were bullies. Now they are no more physical than the rest of the league
so SouthgaDawg88 what should the gators and USC be ranked if Nebraska is so overrated? There isn’t a team in the SEC East that should be ranked below 20.
October 1st, 201110:48 pm
STFU is perfect for your dribble…what team have you ever coached in your life?I doubt you ever sniffed varsity level at any sport either.It’s real easy to sit on the sidelines and be a superior arm chair QB..ok genuis why don’t you tell us all how you would coach up the offense.It’s the continually negative idiots like you that make the “fan” boards trifiling as hell.
October 1st, 201110:50 pm
what help do I need Dr. Phil
What gets me is people like you and SouthGa bum and several others come on here and call names yet never come on here with factual stuff other than oh we won
yea we won wow against another down trodden team that once again we couldnt score in the second half
October 1st, 201110:51 pm
Nebraska would be 7th or 8th in the SEC.
October 1st, 201110:54 pm
Still waiting on you to factually explain how your offensive philosiphy is so superior to the coaches that are getting paid to do it at UGA flat tire.
SoGa88 and what are you basing that on? Nebraska would be better than ole miss, miss st, vandy, kentucky, tennessee, and georgia without a doubt.
October 1st, 201110:56 pm
Bobo ain’t getting Paid! Bobo is robbing UGA Blind. Bobo is a high school coach at best.
October 1st, 201111:00 pm
Here’s a thought
A 6ft 4in 275lb fullback cannot get you a few inches on 4th and inches inside the redzone
or the other 3rd and inches and you run Samuels who has consistantly shown if he is touched he goes down but you choose to run him on a 3rd and inches
You have a QB thats getting more sloppy every game and you dont try to sit him to get his head back on
You hardly throw to the TE’s when we have probably the best TE’s in the nation
Why not throw to Figgens more its worked why stop
Why is it when get to the redzone for some reason we seem to not be able to score
Tell us since Im the arm chair QB and your not
what is Bobo doing so great please tell us
Because its not just me its ESPN, Rivals Radio, Bill Kings radio, Paul Finebaum and several others say the same
October 1st, 201111:04 pm
I forgot to add
Too scared to go for it on 4th and inches against UCF and
a sorry Miss ST team when your up by 18 with 2 qtrs to go
October 1st, 201111:05 pm
ACC I’m sure your resume is on the short list at every school in need of an OC.Maybe you can take up flat tire’s slack by enlightening us all with YOUR superior X’s and O’s….let’s have it
October 1st, 201111:06 pm
And I forgot to add
October 1st, 201111:10 pm
Come on bud. Lets here why Bobo is so great
Here’s a couple more for you
Last you have the best wide reciever in the nation and you cannot even get him the ball against UCF
Could not even get close to a field goal in the first half of the AL game with Stafford, Greene, Moreno, and Mo Mass
31-0 at the half
Come on Coach SouthDawg tell us your execuse for that one
October 1st, 201111:13 pm
ACC, I have to agree with you about Bobo. He’s married to a big donor’s daughter, so that is why Richt got stuck with him. Nebraska on the other hand would do well in the ACC (Another Candy Conference). Your GA Tech guys are undefeated but they’ve played…???WHO???? Yep, GA(Y) Tech gets crushed by Clemson, FSU, MIAMI, VATECH, and UGA to end the season. Keep dreamin’…THE SEC is just better. Sorry dude, but you can still sell us some computers. LOL
Bobo knows how to Score. just ask his wife. Bobo has scored at least 5 times.
October 1st, 201111:15 pm
Come to think of it Mrs. Bobo has as good a defense as Ole Miss and i don’t mean the Water Girl Richt.
October 1st, 201111:18 pm
So throwing the ball to figgans and not running Samuel is your game plan…We would be 4-0 if we only followed you brilliant insights huh?What teams did Finebaum coach?
October 1st, 201111:19 pm
Like I thought name calling with nothing to add but your an arm chair QB
No wonder you think our offense is so great
October 1st, 201111:21 pm
watching the AL/FL game and heard Brent Musberger (I think) say Georgia is now lucky because SC got beat by Auburn. With Florida losing (getting the crap stomped out of them) Georgia is now able to claw it’s way back into the race…CBS is one of those networks that hires some great color guys! I’m so happy when CBS is not calling GA/FL…if we could just get Penn Wagers off of the field as a ref it would be somewhat of an even match. That guy just plain sucks!!!
October 1st, 201111:22 pm
You are still talking about friggin Central Fla?This is 2011 and I haven’t seen anything you have spit out that shows why you know more than the coaches.
